Digitalis is one of the prime examples, though, of the importance of knowing the exact strength/concentration of the active ingredients. Too strong, and it kills. Too weak, and you might as well not waste your money.

It's O.K. Auralie. That is another factor in the matter, for certain. And
some herbs are every bit as good as the patented medicine. Why digitalis is
nothing but an herbal remedy stamped with the pharmaceutical stamp of
approval and it is only one out of many. Any thing that changes body
function should be looked at carefully in my humble opinion. I don't take
on a new medication or intake anything herbal until I've done a bit of
homework to lessen the probability of interactions and side effects.
