In order to find out more information about the efficacy and possible side effects of any herbal treatments you're interested in, as experienced by people who have taken them already, visit

This information is collected anonymously using surveys specialized according to the classification of the medication. Upon submission of a survey, you receive a personal score report which will allow you to measure how effective the medicine is relative to the positive and negative effects you've experienced. This information will also help other users of the site as the average efficacy and occurences of side effects are reported on the main page for the medication.
