Harmful herbs, if used for longer periods of time, can have a negative effect on the healthy organism, and they can slow down recovery and worsen health condition. An example is the aloe, which has recently been used uncontrollably as an addition to medicinal herbal mixtures, creams, and even drinking water.

While aloe helps people with type A blood, it can have an opposite effect on people with different blood types resulting in slow healing and even allergic skin reaction. There are numerous examples of skin reactions in people who have used the shampoo enriched with aloe, who did not belong to blood type A (redness, itching of the scalp …).

In recent years there was a lot of talk about the effect of certain foods on blood types, now it is time for herbs. Numerous studies were conducted which were based on lectin levels (sticky toxic substances) after consumption of certain foods, resulting in clear list of medicinal plants was created in accordance with blood type.

Beneficial, harmful, neutral

The most proper classification of medicinal plants in terms of their use on blood groups would be: beneficial, neutral or harmful.

“Ideal” plant for the holders of specific blood type does not exist, because the phytotherapic agents are used as adjunctive therapy for various conditions and diseases, and they have diverse effects.

On the other hand, very rarely only one herb is used, it is usually a mixture of herbs. From this we can conclude that there is no ideal herb, rather an ideal approach.
