March 2, 2011 - PRLog -- MEDFORD, Ore.--Herbal remedies for heart and vascular conditions have become popular as people take more charge of their own health. Some of them have shown to be effective, but many of these treatments are untested or unsafe, especially when they interact with prescription medications.

Dr. Dauterman, a leader in heart care in the Rogue Valley, will weigh the benefits and hazards of herbal remedies and prescription medications, and he will be available to give frank answers to your questions about herbal remedies, prescription medications, and your heart and vascular health.

Learn about the potential benefits and risks of herbal remedies and when it is appropriate to take them. Learn how to get the right information, how to evaluate it carefully, and when to talk to your doctor.

The event is free and the lunch is heart-healthy, but registration is required and space is limited. Please call 888-688-4920 or register online at http://www.asante.org/classes-events/event-search-results....
