The herbal medicine Aristoloshia has been used by doctors for decades to treat everything from cancer to HIV and AIDS.
It is currently being used to treat anorexia, diabetes, depression, and more.
However, it’s not for everyone.
Some experts say it could be dangerous and not as effective as some of the other herbal treatments out there.
Aristolococha is used as a dietary supplement, not for its medical benefits.
The company that made the herbal medicine, Aristolotica, is now trying to convince the FDA that it’s safe.
The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) is also recommending Aristolochea be regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent its misuse.
The AAPS says it is concerned about the use of Aristoloe and the potential side effects it could cause for people who are taking it.
Here’s what you need to know about the herbal drug, Aristocea.
What is Aristolomel?
The name is a Latin word meaning “crown” or “bronze.”
The term “Aristolochan” is Latin for “blessed one.”
What does Aristocean mean?
AristoCEA is a natural remedy that is extracted from the roots of Aristo, a tropical plant that has medicinal properties that can cure a wide variety of ailments, including chronic pain, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, and a host of other conditions.
The AristoCeA is extracted through the root of the plant, and then the compound is purified from it by boiling it.
What does it do?
AristoloCEAs are typically used as dietary supplements, not to treat cancer or other serious diseases.
It contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other substances that have been shown to be effective at treating many conditions.
But there are concerns that it could contain unwanted ingredients like lead, aluminum, or other harmful chemicals.
What are the risks of using AristoCA?
It’s not recommended that you use Aristo CEA as a supplement, according to the FDA.
It’s also not recommended to use AristocheA on cancer or HIV patients, the AAPS said.
It also is not recommended for anyone under the age of 55.
If you have cancer, you may need to be checked for any other medical conditions.
And it may not be safe for pregnant women, young children, or people with a history of drug abuse or addiction.
There is a link between Aristolozano and cancer, the FDA says.
And there are no proven links between AristoCHA and cancer.
The FDA warns that using Aristocha as a diet supplement or herbal medicine “may increase your risk of serious adverse reactions” such as liver, kidney, lung, or kidney stones.
How is AristoCa a dangerous alternative to Aristo?
The FDA says it’s unclear how long the FDA has considered the herbal herb to be safe.
And, according the AAPs website, “there is a very limited research to support the use as a drug.”
The AAPs recommendations also are not as clear as those from the FDA, which recommends that the supplement should be used in moderation and should be given to people under the supervision of a health care provider.
“It is important to note that AristoCOA, AristOCheA, and AristOCeA are NOT for use by pregnant women or those with an underlying health condition,” the FDA’s website reads.
They also recommend that “it is not advised to use them if you have an existing medical condition.”
The FDA is urging AristoBEA and AristoCLAY to be restricted to use in the treatment of specific conditions, such as chronic pain and heart disease.
If your symptoms are severe, you should talk with your doctor about treatment options.
And you should also talk to your doctor before starting any other herbal or nutritional supplements.
What should you do if you find AristoCHA or AristOCA in your medicine cabinet?
