Sure.

Yet make sure to bless and empower the herbs with Mantras when preparing them and before taking them (either Mantras we have received a Lung transmission for, or Mantras of which we don't need transmission for).

For example Medicine Buddha, the Mantra of the Dakinis, Amitayus, etc. or OM AH HUM.

And learning Tibetan Medicine is always a plus.

Yes, but you must know how the individual plants affect the body, how to prepare them for ingestion, and what dosage to use.

For example, I wouldn't mix amanita muscaria and ipomea seeds in large doses!

I would recommend a discussion with member 'Malcolm' as Tibetan Medicine lead.

Otherwise, discuss with a Medical Herbalist or Ayurveda practitioner.

Herbs are no less dangerous than prescription drugs if you don't know what you are doing.
