Evidence or Lack Of
As pediatrician, i worry about herbal remedies mostly because of lack of convincing research that they are effective and safe.
If I have proof of safety, trying it will not hurt. Often it is assumed that "natural" products are safe. If so, then those mushrooms growing in the backyard will not poison me.Seriously, most pediatric herbal cures , when studied have so far been found not to work well.
