Free Webinar Herb/Drug Interactions: Discovery, Relevance, and Mitigation*.   Recorded December 04, 2019. Presented by Dr. Lise Alschuler, ND, FABNO

This presentation provided an overview of the mechanisms which underlie drug/herb interactions. Methods were explored to determine when drug/herb interactions present clinically actionable cautions, and strategies to minimize the risk of drug/herb interactions were shared. Finally, we reviewed examples of the current state of evidence for drug/herbs interactions for commonly recommended botanicals.
Herbs discussed: Silybum marianum (Milk Thistle), Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s Wort), Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), Curcuma longa (Turmeric) and Camellia sinensis (Green Tea).”
