THE URINARY SYSTEM FORTIFIER® 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. Because of its oxalic acid content, an extreme overdose of this infusion might cause paralysis, breathing difficulty, and death.

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. This infusion might also cause an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to birch, celery, or wild carrot. This has been called the “celery-carrot-mugwort-spice syndrome.” This infusion might also cause an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to white mustard, honey, royal jelly, hazelnut, olive, latex, peach, kiwi, the Micronesian nut called Nangai, and other plants from the genus Artemisia, including sage. If you have allergies, be sure to test with a small quantity of the herbs contained within this infusion externally rubbed on your skin, followed by drinking a small amount of the diluted infusion. Only after these tests prove to be safe, should you 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.

   People with eczema seem to have a higher chance of having an allergic reaction, so be careful if you have eczema.

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.

Diabetes There is some concern that large amounts of this infusion might lower blood sugar. 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. Medications for diabetes (Antidiabetes drugs) interact with this infusion so be cautious. Dosing adjustments to diabetes medications might be necessary. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

Edema This infusion should not be used for specific edema management when there is reduced cardiac or kidney function. Fluid retention (Edema) due to "Irrigation therapy," with large amounts of fluids being consumed to increase urine flow, should not be attempted in people with heart or kidney disease.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) This infusion or part of an herbal "irrigation therapy" may not work against infections and may require the addition of germ-killing medications. "Irrigation therapy" if used should be monitored closely. Don’t depend on it for clearing up an infection. This infusion should be used as part of a pathology prevent protocol, not part of an existing infestation cure.

Kidney Disorders This infusion may increase urine flow. If you have kidney problems, discuss this concern with your healthcare provider before starting it.

Drowsiness This infusion may cause short periods of drowsiness immediately following consumption. Use proper safety cautions if you become drowsy.

Bleeding Disorder This infusion might slow blood clotting. In theory, consuming it might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.

Heart disease Don’t self-medicate with this infusion if you have heart disease. It is UNSAFE to use unless you are under close medical supervision.

Potassium Deficiency This infusion contains chemicals called cardiac glycosides that can cause the body to lose potassium. This might make potassium deficiency worse. If your potassium level gets low enough, it can harm the heart. Some "water pills" that can deplete potassium include chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Thalitone), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, HydroDiuril, Microzide), and others. Monitor carefully if you have existing potassium deficiencies. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

Blood Pressure This infusion can theoretically both raise and lower your blood pressure. This may 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. This infusion might interfere with control of these conditions. Large amounts of this infusion might lower levels of potassium, making any existing potassium deficits worse. There is a concern that the infusion might make the body accumulate more sodium, and this can make high blood pressure worse. Don't consume large amounts of the infusion without monitoring your blood pressure. Medications for high blood pressure (Antihypertensive drugs) interacts with this infusion, so be cautious. Dosing adjustments to diabetes medications might be necessary. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

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.

POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS

No side effects or drug interactions have been reported concerning this infusion. However, you might consider the following:

Alcohol Interaction - Be cautious with this combination. 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. Talk with your healthcare provider.

Cocaine Interaction - Cocaine has many dangerous side effects. Using this infusion along with cocaine might increase the side effects of cocaine including heart attack and death.

Liver Processing Interaction – 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. Some medications that are changed by the liver include acetaminophen, amitriptyline (Elavil), atorvastatin (Lipitor), diazepam (Valium), digoxin, entacapone (Comtan), estrogen, haloperidol (Haldol), irinotecan (Camptosar), lamotrigine (Lamictal), lorazepam (Ativan), lovastatin (Mevacor), meprobamate, morphine, ondansetron (Zofran), propranolol (Inderal), theophylline (Theo-Dur, others), verapamil (Calan, Isoptin, others), oxazepam (Serax), and others.

Antibiotic Interaction – This infusion might decrease how much antibiotic the body absorbs. Consuming it along with antibiotics might decrease the effectiveness of some antibiotics. Some antibiotics that might interact with this infusion include azithromycin, ciprofloxacin (Cipro), clarithromycin, enoxacin (Penetrex), demeclocycline (Declomycin), erythromycin , minocycline (Minocin), norfloxacin (Chibroxin, Noroxin), sparfloxacin (Zagam), tetracycline (Achromycin), trovafloxacin (Trovan), and grepafloxacin (Raxar).

Warfarin (Coumadin) – Warfarin is sometimes used to slow blood clotting and inflamation. 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. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have. Corticosteroid Interactions – Some medications for inflammation can decrease potassium in the body. Low potassium levels can also affect the heart and increase the risk of side effects from this infusion. This infusion may interact with corticosteroids. The dose of your corticosteroids might need to be changed. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have. Some medications for inflammation include dexamethasone (Decadron), hydrocortisone (Cortef), methylprednisolone (Medrol), prednisone (Deltasone), and others.

Urinary Acidifiers - Urinary acidifiers inhibit the conversion of arbutin to active hydroquinone, rendering this infusion less effective. Water Pills - Water pills (Diuretic drugs) interacts with this infusion. The dose of your diuretic medication might need to be changed. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

Thyroid Disease – There is a concern that this infusion may change thyroid function, reduce thyroid hormone levels, and interfere with thyroid hormone-replacement therapy. The dose of your treatment might need to be changed. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

Other Medications – This infusion may delay absorption of other medications taken at the same time. Anthraquinone Glycoside Interactions - Should not be used in conjunction with anthraquinone glycoside containing plants.

Calcium Supplement Interactions - This infusion can stimulate the heart. Calcium might also affect the heart. Consuming this infusion along with calcium supplements might cause the heart to be too stimulated. The dose of your supplements might need to be changed. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

Digoxin (Lanoxin) interactions - Digoxin (Lanoxin) helps the heart beat more strongly. This infusion also seems to affect the heart. Taking the infusion along with digoxin might increase the effects of digoxin and increase the risk of side effects. Do not consume this infusion if you are taking digoxin (Lanoxin) without talking to your healthcare professional.

Quinine Interactions – This infusion can affect the heart. Quinine can also affect the heart. Taking quinine along with the infusion might cause heart problems. The dose of quinine might need to be changed. Talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.

Antibiotics (Macrolide and Tetracycline) Interactions – Some antibiotics might increase how much of this infusion the body absorbs. Consuming this infusion along with some antibiotics might increase the effects and side effects of this infusion. Some antibiotics called macrolide antibiotics include erythromycin, azithromycin, and clarithromycin. Some tetracycline antibiotics include demeclocycline (Declomycin), minocycline (Minocin), and tetracycline (Achromycin).

Lithium Interactions - This infusion might have an effect like a water pill or "diuretic." Consuming the infusion might decrease how well the body gets rid of lithium. This could increase how much lithium is in the body and result in some side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are taking lithium. Your lithium dose might need to be changed.

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 infusion might increase the risk of kidney stones.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) Interactions - Drinking our infusion before taking acetaminophen might increase how fast your body gets rid of acetaminophen. But more information is needed to know if this is a big concern. Be watchful with this combination.

CAUTION: Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels, indications, and safety consideration product tabs. Consult your pharmacist, herbalist, or other healthcare professional before consuming.

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 of the herbs contained within this infusion externally rubbed on your skin, followed by drinking a small amount of the diluted infusion. Only after these tests prove to be safe, should you consume normally.

   Allergic reactions may occur when consuming spices including wild carrot, mugwort, birch, caraway, fennel or coriander seeds, parsley, anise, plantain, and dandelion. This has been called the "celery-carrot-mugwort-spice syndrome," or the "celery-mugwort-birch-spice" syndrome. 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.

   People with eczema seem to have a higher chance of having an allergic reaction, so be careful if you have eczema.

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.

Contraceptive Drugs Some birth control pills contain estrogen. This infusion might have some of the same effects as estrogen. But the infusion isn't as strong as the estrogen in birth control pills. Drinking this infusion along with birth control pills might decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. If you take birth control pills along with this infusion, use an additional form of birth control such as a condom.

Infertility This infusion might lower testosterone levels and decrease sperm movement when taken by mouth by men. This might reduce fertility. This infusion should be used cautiously by people trying to have a baby.

Thyroid Hormone-replacement Therapy There is a concern that this infusion may change thyroid function, reduce thyroid hormone levels, and interfere with thyroid hormone-replacement therapy. Talk with your healthcare provider to be sure of any potential issues if you are under thyroid treatment.

Bleeding Disorders This infusion might slow blood clotting. Drinking it might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders. In theory, drinking this infusion might increase the risk for bruising and bleeding in people with bleeding disorders. Talk with your healthcare provider about any potential dangers with this infusion.

Heart Disease This infusion consumed in large quantities can cause the body to store water, and this can make congestive heart failure worse. In may also increase the risk of irregular heartbeat. Talk with your healthcare provider if you have heart disease.

Hormone-sensitive conditions This infusion might act like estrogen in the body. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids, talk with your healthcare provider about this infusion.

Iron deficiency Drinking high amounts of this infusion might prevent the absorption of iron. The infusion should be used with caution in people with iron deficiency.

Diabetes Some evidence suggests that drinking this infusion might lower blood sugar levels. It might lower blood sugar levels too much in people with diabetes who are already taking medications to lower blood sugar. If you have diabetes, be sure to check with your healthcare provider before drinking this infusion. Dosing adjustments to diabetes medications might be necessary.

Irrigation Therapy "Irrigation therapy," during which this infusion consumed with large amounts of fluids to increase urine flow, should not be attempted in people with fluid retention due to heart or kidney disease. Talk with your healthcare provider if you have concerns.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) Herbal "irrigation therapy" may not work against infections and may require the addition of germ-killing medications. "Irrigation therapy" should be monitored closely. Don’t depend on it for clearing up an infection. Talk with your healthcare provider for infection treatment.

Gallbladder problems This infusion can make gallbladder problems worse. Do not drink large quantities of this infusion if you have gallstones or a bile duct obstruction.

Liver Disease There is some concern that this infusion might make liver disease worse. If you have liver problems, talk with your healthcare provider for advice before drinking this infusion. Also, be sure to have liver function tests done.

Kidney stones Great care has been taken to prevent kidney stone issues. However, this infusion contains small amounts of a chemical called oxalate. Since kidney stones are made primarily from oxalate combined with calcium, healthcare providers worry that this infusion might increase the risk of kidney stones. To be on the safe side, avoid taking cranberry extract products or drinking a lot of this infusion if you have a history of kidney stones without talking with your healthcare provider first.

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 has some of the effects of estrogen. If you have protein S deficiency talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns there may be.

Blood Pressure This infusion can theoretically both raise and lower your blood pressure. This may 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. There is a concern that the infusion might make the body accumulate more sodium, and this can make high blood pressure worse. 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.

 

POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS

   No side effects or drug interactions have been reported concerning this infusion. However, you might consider the following:

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. People who are alcoholics are generally also thiamine deficient. Taking horsetail might make thiamine deficiency worse. Consuming large amounts of the infusion along with alcohol might cause too much sleepiness.

Tobacco Interactions - People who chew tobacco flavored with licorice while drinking this infusion might develop high blood pressure and other side effects.

Cocaine Interactions - Cocaine has many dangerous side effects. Using this infusion along with cocaine might increase the side effects of cocaine including heart attack and death.

Sedative medications (Barbiturates) Interactions - This infusion might cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Medications that cause sleepiness are called sedatives. Drinking the infusion along with sedative medications might cause too much sleepiness.

Antacids Interactions- Antacids are used to decrease stomach acid. In large quantities this infusion might increase stomach acid. By increasing stomach acid, the infusion might decrease the effectiveness of antacids. Some antacids include calcium carbonate (Tums, others), dihydroxyaluminum sodium carbonate (Rolaids, others), magaldrate (Riopan), magnesium sulfate (Bilagog), aluminum hydroxide (Amphojel), and others.

H2-Blockers Interactions- In large quantities this infusion might increase stomach acid. By increasing stomach acid, the infusion might decrease the effectiveness of some medications that decrease stomach acid, called H2-Blockers. Some medications that decrease stomach acid include cimetidine (Tagamet), ranitidine (Zantac), nizatidine (Axid), and famotidine (Pepcid).

Proton Pump Inhibitors Interactions- In large quantities this infusion might increase stomach acid. By increasing stomach acid, the infusion might decrease the effectiveness of medications that are used to decrease stomach acid, called proton pump inhibitors. Some medications that decrease stomach acid include omeprazole (Prilosec), lansoprazole (Prevacid), rabeprazole (Aciphex), pantoprazole (Protonix), and esomeprazole (Nexium).

Low stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) - This infusion might increase how much vitamin B12 the body absorbs for people with low levels of stomach acid.

Liver Processing Interaction – 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. Some medications that are changed by the liver include, acetaminophen, amitriptyline (Elavil), atorvastatin (Lipitor), diazepam (Valium), digoxin, entacapone (Comtan), estrogen, haloperidol (Haldol), irinotecan (Camptosar), lamotrigine (Lamictal), lorazepam (Ativan), lovastatin (Mevacor), meprobamate, morphine, ondansetron (Zofran), propranolol (Inderal), theophylline (Theo-Dur, others), verapamil (Calan, Isoptin, others), oxazepam (Serax), and others.

Medications Changed by the Liver (Cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2) substrates) Interactions - Some medications are changed and broken down by the liver. This infusion might decrease how quickly the liver breaks down some medications. Drinking this infusion along with some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of some medications. Before consuming this infusion, talk to your healthcare provider if you take any medications that are changed by the liver. Some medications that are changed by the liver include amitriptyline (Elavil), haloperidol (Haldol), ondansetron (Zofran), propranolol (Inderal), theophylline (Theo-Dur, others), verapamil (Calan, Isoptin, others), and others.

Antibiotic Interaction – This infusion might decrease how much antibiotic the body absorbs. Consuming it along with antibiotics might decrease the effectiveness of some antibiotics. Some antibiotics that might interact with this infusion include azithromycin, ciprofloxacin (Cipro), clarithromycin, enoxacin (Penetrex), demeclocycline (Declomycin), erythromycin , minocycline (Minocin), norfloxacin (Chibroxin, Noroxin), sparfloxacin (Zagam), tetracycline (Achromycin), trovafloxacin (Trovan), and grepafloxacin (Raxar).

Lithium Interactions - This infusion might have an effect like a water pill or "diuretic." Drinking it might decrease how well the body gets rid of lithium. This could increase how much lithium is in the body and result in serious side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are taking lithium. Your lithium dose might need to be changed.

Water pills (Diuretic drugs) Interactions - This infusion may work like "water pills" by causing the body to lose water. Drinking this infusion along with other "water pills" might cause the body to lose too much water. Losing too much water can cause you to be dizzy and your blood pressure to go too low. Some "water pills" include chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Thalitone), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, Hydrodiuril, Microzide), and others.

Estrogens interactions - This infusion seems to change hormone levels in the body. Drinking it along with estrogen pills might decrease the effects of estrogen pills. Some estrogen pills include conjugated equine estrogens (Premarin), ethinyl estradiol, estradiol, and others.

Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) interactions -   This infusion might slow blood clotting. Taking burdock along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding. Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), and others.

Warfarin (Coumadin) Interactions - Warfarin (Coumadin) is 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.

Potassium-sparing Diuretics Interactions - This infusion may produce significant amounts of potassium. Some "water pills" can also increase potassium levels in the body. Taking some "water pills" along with this infusion might cause too much potassium to be in the body. Some "water pills" that increase potassium in the body include amiloride (Midamor), spironolactone (Aldactone), and triamterene (Dyrenium).

Low potassium levels (hypokalemia) - There is some concern that this infusion might flush potassium out of the body, possibly leading to potassium levels that are too low. . This can make hypertonia, a muscle condition caused by nerve problems worse. Until more is known, drink this infusion with caution if you are at risk for potassium deficiency.

Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) Interactions - Some types of cancer are affected by hormones in the body. Estrogen-sensitive cancers are cancers that are affected by estrogen levels in the body. Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is used to help treat and prevent these types of cancer. This infusion seems to also affect estrogen levels in the body. By affecting estrogen in the body, the infusion might decrease the effectiveness of tamoxifen (Nolvadex). Do not drink the infusion if you are taking tamoxifen (Nolvadex).

Ethacrynic Acid (Edecrin) Interactions - This infusion can cause the body to get rid of potassium. Ethacrynic acid (Edecrin) can also cause the body to get rid of potassium. Drinking the infusion and ethacrynic acid (Edecrin) together might cause potassium to become too low.

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.

 

POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS

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.

Anticoagulant/Antiplatelet drugs - This infusion might slow blood clotting. Taking Ginger root along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.

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.
