Possible Side Effects of White Peony Root
White Peony Root is generally considered to be pretty safe, although it should be avoided by anyone who is suffering from diarrhea due to cancer or AIDS. You must also remember that this herb is pretty cold, so it should only be used with caution in cases of extreme cold or Yang deficiency.
