We now have an educational series of a few emails that start you from the beginning and introduce you to herbs, how they work, and how to get started. We encourage you to Join Our Mailing List to receive our Free Newsletter and learn even more groundbreaking natural healing techniques.
Product Instructions: All of our products have instructions printed on the label or instructions that are automatically included with each order. These instructions as well as the product label directions will tell you exactly how to take your herbs, including dosage, how long to take it, and even how to adjust doses for children and pets.
Online Resources: If you don't know what herbs to take or what products to order, we have many resources to help you determine what herbs you need. Off our website, there is an Herbal Resource Guide where you can learn more about herbs, their uses and how to take them. A FREE listing of essential oils that help specific issues can be found on the Essential Oils and Specific Health Issues page
Frequently Asked Questions: And if you still have more questions: we have collected and posted over 10 years' worth of the most commonly asked questions that people have about herbs and natural healing (such as "How long will it take for this to work?"). We've included the questions along with Dr. Foster's answers on the Frequently Asked Questions page. Feel free to browse this page for answers to your questions.
Searching Our Website: You can also use the Search box at the top left corner of each page to search for pages with particular words in them such as "high blood pressure."Herbal Questionnaire: Our FREE Herbal Recommendations section is now ready! This is a questionnaire that allows you to type in your age, gender, symptoms, diagnoses, medications, supplements, and even your lab tests to get specific herbal and lifestyle recommendations. It gives recommendations for everyone, including infants and children (parents type in the answers), adults and the elderly. It also gives a list of products that should NOT be taken, so that everyone knows which products they should NOT take in addition to the products that are OK for them to take.
Discussion Board: Also, make sure you check the Discussion Board. It can be accessed from any page by clicking on the "Ask Dr. Foster" button on the left hand side of the page. Currently, the Discussion Board is closed to new questions, but you could very well find the answer you're looking for by reading other people's questions - people just like you with severe and even hopeless health problems who learned there was an herbal answer for them.
Important Note: There is not a single person in the world, licensed, doctor or otherwise, who is legally allowed to say that natural substances can "cure" anything. By law, a "cure" can only exist if it is synthetic and patented. Natural substances such as foods, herbs, essential oils, air, water and exercise are not legally allowed to be "cures" for anything, regardless of what scientists, medical doctors or Nobel prize winners have to say about it. That's how much health freedom we have in America. According to the law, medical doctors are allowed to claim that their synthetic drugs cure diseases and conditions, but never that anything natural could. It is against the law for people to be cured with herbs or any natural remedy! (We like to use the word "heal" instead.) Therefore, please do not ask us questions about whether herbs can cure your disease or how long it will take for you to be cured from ......condition. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us stay in compliance with the law so that we can continue to provide herbal products. If anyone doesn't like the law (we don't), we encourage people to write their Congressperson and allow their voice to be heard.
We Can't Keep Up With Every Brand Out There: We are aware that people do follow other natural healers' programs. We are also aware of other herbal books out there. There are thousands of herbal companies selling herbs and thousands of "natural" products available in the U.S. and it is next to impossible to keep track of all of them - although we do our best!
Due to the rampant poor herbal quality available in stores, Dr. Foster cannot be held responsible for the lack of effectiveness of herbs and herbal formulas purchased from places other than from www.DrFostersEssentials.com. So, in other words, if Dr. Foster says take Echinacea Premium, and you take a cheaper brand of echinacea or "your friend's favorite brand" instead and it doesn't work - we cannot be held responsible. We don't recommend taking "milligrams" of anything. Usually commercially available encapsulated herbs are not strong enough, no matter how many milligrams you consume. Standardized formulas are sometimes not any better than ones that have not been standardized. Our formulas are a particular strength with an herb-to-alcohol ratio of 1:1 with vibrational remedies added, and this strength is what Dr. Foster is used to working with. We can only speak about the safety and effectiveness of the herbal products sold through this website and do not endorse any other herbal products. The quality of commercially available herbs is at an all time low and most herbs on the market simply do not work. We are particularly disappointed with products from most multi-level companies which often cut corners on their product quality in order to maximize commissions to their customers. Their philosophy is usually geared toward financial compensation rather than product quality.Find out more about product quality
Dr. Foster places a high priority of obtaining the highest grade of organic and wildcrafted herbs and making sure they are prepared correctly. Among the many herbal companies in the U.S., people can always rely on the quality of our herbs. Our herbal quality is our number one priority and always will be.
Also, really keep this in mind because we are a small company - although we would like to help everyone that sends us an email, we simply don't have the manpower or the budget to advise you on others' supplements for free. If you need free advice on other brands, we suggest you contact the manufacturer or distributor of that brand. They are likely to be more knowledgeable about their own product than we are, and they're usually happy to help you.
