MPB's Southern Remedy: Ask Dr. Rick
Dear Dr. Rick,
Many of my friends are using essential oils to treat their various ailments. Several have used peppermint oil to treat acid reflux, and one has used peppermint oils for treating hiccups that she had for three days. What is your opinion about these and other natural remedies. - Susan
Many people are interested in oils, herbals, supplements, and mega-vitamins. All of these products fall under the category of nutraceuticals. For the most part, none of these are assessed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for their ingredients, safety or how well they work. They are available through a loop hole in the law that requires these assessments for prescription and non-prescription drugs.
