Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Although medicinal plants are widely used and assumed to be safe, however, they can potentially be toxic especially in pregnancy. Where poisoning from medicinal plants has been reported, it usually has been due to misidentification of the plants in the form in which they are sold, or incorrectly preparation and administration by inadequately trained personnel. Therefore, preferably should be administered by trained personnel.
