    It depends how you define mainstream and it is also fair to say that many of the mainstream herbal remedies are mixtures of a variety of herbs often prepared in different ways by different stores and given the same label. Better regulation would be beneficial all round.

    Maybe it works then or maybe its working via the placebo effect. Lots of people swear by homeopathy but that doesn't mean homeopathy isn't just an elaborate placebo.

    i prefer to just use raw herbal powders that way i know what im getting and if needed i can make a blend from the various different herbs that havent been marked up 20 times so some manufacturer can make wild money.
