THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM NORMALIZER® SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
Many of these safety considerations may seem to be in contradiction with each other. That’s because they are. Our infusions are designed to address many safety considerations with other pharmaceutical herbs (e.g. both raising and lowering blood sugar levels at the same time). The infusion is made further safe by managing the herbal quantities provided at any one time. Please follow our recommended dosage below and be confident and secure in your pathology prevention efforts.
Ingredients of this infusion consumed in quantities of three teaspoons (3 teabags) per day over a three to six-month period are GENERALLY CONSIDERED SAFE by the FDA under the G.R.A.S. provision. However, you might consider the following:
General Considerations This infusion may temporarily worsen symptoms because of the detoxifying action. When consumed by mouth in normal quantities this infusion does not cause serious side effects. But some people can experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, or diarrhea. Do not continue consuming this infusion if you experience any of these symptoms.
When consumed in extreme amounts (over ten teabags per day) for more than 4 weeks or in smaller amounts long-term, this infusion can cause side effects including high blood pressure, low potassium levels, weakness, and paralysis, in otherwise healthy people. Overuse and abuse of this infusion could make kidney disease worse. The infusion can lower a man's interest in sex and also worsen erectile dysfunction (ED) by lowering levels of a hormone called testosterone.
So don't consume more than 10 bags of this infusion per day - ever!
Infants and Children Not for the use by anyone under twelve years old. This infusion has not been tested for the consumption by children or infants and is considered UNSAFE. If accidentally ingested contact medical authorities immediately.
Allergic Reactions This infusion may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae plant families. Members of these families include ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and many others. If you have allergies, be sure to test with a small quantity rubbed externally, followed by diluted infusions. Only after tests prove to be safe consume normally. Check with your healthcare provider with any concerns. This infusion contains significant amounts of salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is similar to aspirin. Avoid drinking large quantities if you are allergic to aspirin.
Infertility While consuming, this infusion might lower testosterone levels and decrease sperm movement. This might reduce fertility. Our infusion should be used cautiously by people trying to have a baby, and avoid consuming 3 hours before sex.
Pregnancy and Breast-feeding There is not enough reliable information about the safety of consuming this infusion if you are pregnant or breast feeding. It is LIKELY UNSAFE. There is a concern that it might cause early delivery or miscarriage. It might promote a menstrual period or stimulate the uterus, putting the pregnancy at risk.
Bleeding Disorders This infusion might slow blood clotting. This might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.
Diabetes Some evidence suggests that consuming this infusion might lower blood sugar levels. This might lower blood sugar levels too much in people with diabetes who are already taking medications to lower blood sugar. Watch for signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and monitor your blood sugar carefully if you have diabetes and are consuming this infusion. Dosing adjustments to diabetes medications might be necessary.
Heart Disease This infusion can cause the body to store water, and this can make congestive heart failure worse. It can also increase the risk of irregular heartbeat. Don't consume this infusion if you have heart disease.
Kidney Disease This infusion seems to increase urine flow. If you have kidney problems, the infusion may increase stress on the kidneys, sooner than strengthening the digestive system. You should discuss with your healthcare provider before starting a treatment protocol.
Thyroid Disease This infusion may interfere with the action of thyroid hormones. Don't consume this infusion without considering the concern that it may change thyroid function, reduce thyroid hormone levels, and interfere with thyroid hormone-replacement therapy. This infusion might act like estrogen in the body. However, other research shows that it reduces the effects of estrogen in some hormone-sensitive cancer cells. Therefore, this infusion might have beneficial effects on hormone-sensitive conditions. Until more is known, use cautiously if you have a condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen ‘like’ hormones.
Blood Pressure This infusion can theoretically both raise and lower your blood pressure. increase the risk of blood pressure dropping too low in people prone to low blood pressure and too high in people prone to high blood pressure. Don't consume large amounts of the infusion without monitoring your blood pressure.
Surgery This infusion might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. It may also cause too much drowsiness if combined with medications used during and after surgery. Stop consuming it at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
No side effects or drug interactions have been reported concerning this infusion. However, you might consider the following:
Photosensitivity - reactions resulting from external contact with some of its ingredients have been reported. This has been attributed to their content of furanocoumarins, which are known photosensitizing agents.
Alcohol Interaction - Be cautious with this combination. Talk with your healthcare provider. Alcohol can cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Our infusion may also cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Consuming large amounts of the infusion along with alcohol might cause too much sleepiness.
Warfarin (Coumadin) – Warfarin is sometimes used to slow blood clotting. This infusion might increase how long warfarin (Coumadin) is in the body and increase the chances of bruising and bleeding. Be sure to have your blood checked regularly. The dose of your warfarin (Coumadin) might need to be changed.
Tobacco Interactions - People who chew tobacco flavored with licorice while drinking this infusion might develop high blood pressure and other side effects.
Potassium Levels – This infusion could theoretically lower potassium levels in your blood. A muscle condition caused by nerve problems (hypertonia) can be worsened by our infusion. Avoid this infusion if you have hypertonia.
Absorption Rates – This infusion may delay absorption of other drugs taken at the same time.
Aspirin Sensitivity - This infusion should be avoided by people with salicylate (aspirin) sensitivity. It contains chemicals similar to aspirin. Taking salsalate with the infusion might cause there to be too much salicylates in the body. This might increase the effects and side effects of salicylates. Consuming it along with aspirin could theoretically increase the effects and side effects of the aspirin.
Narcotic Drugs - Medications for pain (Narcotic drugs) may interact with this infusion. The body breaks down some medications for pain to get rid of them. This infusion might decrease how fast the body gets rid of some medications for pain. By decreasing how fast the body gets rid of some medications for pain, it might increase the effects and side effects of some medications for pain. Some medications for pain include meperidine (Demerol), hydrocodone, morphine, OxyContin, and many others.
Liver Processing – By design, some medications are changed and broken down by the liver. This infusion might affect how quickly the liver breaks down these medications. Consuming this infusion along with some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of some medications.
Iron Deficiency - Taking high amounts of this infusion might prevent some absorption of iron. It should be used with caution in people with existing iron deficiency.
Protein S Deficiency - People with protein S deficiency have an increased risk of forming blood clots. There is some concern that this infusion might increase the risk of clot formation in these people because it may act like estrogen. If you have protein S deficiency, it is best to avoid using this infusion until more is known.
Atrophic Gastritis - This infusion might increase how much vitamin B12 the body absorbs by people with inflammation of the stomach lining (Atrophic gastritis).
Hypochlorhydria – This infusion might increase how much vitamin B12 the body absorbs by people with low levels of stomach acid, (hypochlorhydria).
Kidney Stones – This infusion contains a small amount of a chemical called oxalate. Since kidney stones are made primarily from oxalate combined with calcium, healthcare providers worry that this might increase the risk of kidney stones. .
CAUTION: Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels, indications, and safety consideration product tabs. Consult your pharmacist, herbalist, or other healthcare professional with any concerns.
