THE NERVOUS SYSTEM STABILIZER® 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.
Infertility There are some concerns that this infusion may interfere with conceiving a child. If you are trying to conceive, don't drink this infusion 24 hours before and after any effort, especially if you have known fertility problems. Some birth control pills contain estrogen. The body breaks down the estrogen in birth control pills to get rid of it. This infusion might increase the break down of estrogen. 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. Some birth control pills include ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel (Triphasil), ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone (Ortho-Novum 1/35, Ortho-Novum 7/7/7), and others which are all known to be made less effective by our infusion.
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.
Bleeding Disorder This infusion contains a chemical called berberine. Berberine might slow blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding. In theory, it might make bleeding disorders worse. Taking this infusion 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.
Leukemia This infusion might worsen this condition. If you have leukemia, talk with your healthcare provider before consuming this infusion.
Liver disease There is some concern that drinking this infusion might harm the liver. In theory, it might make liver diseases, such as hepatitis, worse. People with liver disease or a history of liver disease should use caution and talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.
Seizures Drinking this infusion might increase the potential of a seizure in some people. Don't take the infusion if you have a history of having seizures.
Stomach or Intestinal Problems This infusion can be harmful to people with stomach or intestinal problems. Inflammation of the stomach lining (Atrophic gastritis) may be affected. This infusion might increase how much vitamin B12 the body absorbs for people with atrophic gastritis. People with intestinal problems or a history of intestinal disease should use caution and talk with your healthcare provider about any concerns you may have.
Parkinson's Disease This infusion consumed in large quantities might make Parkinson's disease worse. If you have this condition, talk with your healthcare provider about drinking this infusion.
Alzheimer's Disease There is concern that large doses of this infusion might contribute to dementia in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Bipolar Disorder People with bipolar disorder cycle between depression and mania, a state marked by excessive physical activity and impulsive behavior. Large amounts of this infusion can bring on mania in these individuals and can also speed up the cycling between depression and mania.
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.
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.
