WARNING: Talk to your Doctor/Medical Professional before adding any 

Supplements, herbal teas, Infusions, etc. ​

 

Part of the reason that we list Medical Jargin is because many plants can interfere with or even counteract medications we already take or it

 can exacerbate ailments we already have. 

When talking to your Medical Professional, we suggest asking what "actions" an herb might do to interfere with your health, either positive of negative. For example, if you suffer from heartburn, a Cholagogue which creates more bile may not be advantagous. Too much of a good thing, eh?
