If you take vitamins or herbal supplements you might think it’s natural so it’s good for me. Well it’s not that simple. Many of these so called natural substances should really be classified as medicines or ‘complimentary medicines,’ as they’re known. They can often have some pretty significant side effects. Dr. Philippa Binns from NPS MedicineWise joined us today on Health Matters to discuss how people should approach taking such medicines.
