Is it okay to take natural vitamins/herbals for health conditions?

especially for asthma? There are many drugs on the market which "boost" the immune system, however, asthma itself you take drugs which lower the immune system a tad bit,….so I’m not sure if that would cancel the effects of the prescription drugs.

And I don’t mean serious conditions but if you want to lower your cholesterol, treat asthma to a degree, be in better overall health, like take Immune System improvement drugs, whole foods, whole food vitamins and the such,?

    Yes. And there is a natural protocol for almost every malady:

    ASTHMA

    Supplements:
    Quercitin-C500 mg 3x daily
    Flaxseed oil 1000 mg 2x daily before meals
    Vitamin B complex 50 mg 4x daily
    Vitamin A15,000 iu daily
    Vitamin E600 iu daily
    Vitamin C
    with bioflavonoids1500 mg 3x daily
    CoQ 10100 mg daily
    Magnesium + calcium1500 mg daily
    L-Cysteine500 mg 2x daily

    Herbs:
    Ginkgo Biloba
    Echinacea
    Pau d’arco

    Recommendations:
    1. Eat a diet of primarily fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, oatmeal, brown rice and whole grains. Processed foods and sugar should be avoided.
    2. Include garlic and onions in your diet. These contain quercetin and mustard oils, which have been shown to inhibit an enzyme that aids in releasing inflammatory chemicals.
    3. Include green drinks like “Kyo-Green” in your diet.
    4. Avoid gas producing foods like beans, broccoli and cauliflower.
    5. Eat lightly- a large meal can put pressure on the diaphragm and cause shortness of breath.
    6. Avoid sulfites, the food additives BHA and BHT, FD&C yellow #5 food dye, animal hair and tobacco.

    Herbs
    Cayenne (capsicum), goldenseal, and hawthorn berries help lower cholesterol. Kombucha Tea has also been found to lower cholesterol.

    Chromium Picolinate
    Garlic
    Lecithin

    Consume plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, barley, beans, brown rice and oats.
    Drink fresh (unpasteurized) juices, especially carrot, celery and beet.

    Avoid all animal products, and fried or fatty foods.
    Do not consume alcohol, candy, carbonated drinks, caffeine, gravies, non-dairy creamers, pastries, processed or refined foods, and avoid tobacco.

    It is never a good idea to take any supplements without checking with a medical advisor if you are on prescription drugs. the mixture may cause many other problems.
    There are several natural herbs for immune system improvement but most of them may have side effects and may cancel the effect of your regular meds.
    Don’t experiement.
