Herbs to avoid before surgery

Researchers at Cleveland’s University Hospitals Case Medical Center recently provided a very useful study for any patient about to undergo surgery — whether it’s a quadruple bypass or a simple out-patient cosmetic procedure.
After the UHCMC team conducted a review to assess the benefits and risks of widely used herbal supplements, they compiled this list of herbs that might be best to avoid in the two weeks prior to surgery:
* For bleeding effects: gingko biloba, garlic, ginseng, dong quai, feverfew, fish oils
* For drug interactions: echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, St. John’s wort, kava, valerian root
* For cardiovascular effects: ephedra, garlic
* For anesthetic effects: valerian root, St. John’s wort, kava
* For photosensitivity effects: St. John’s wort, dong quai
* For hypoglycemia effects: ginseng

Note: The Cancer Survivor’s Bible (2012) is now available – see

“This book gives hope. …I wish I had read this book before I was diagnosed. My doctors and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this.”

    Just leaving some details for a company in Holland who can put you in contact with a provider of cannabis hemp oil for those who are in legal/tolerant areas.
    Run from the cure by rick simpson, along with other information, shows how cannabis hemp marijuana oil has shrunk and totally removed cancer. We believe anyone who is willing to use cannabis oil to cure themselves should not be denied access to it.
    Contact and they will put you in contact, providing you are njot in the USA or other conutries were supply may be an issue
