How much: Sea water has lots of salts, and the kinds of salt and the amount depend on the location. A little won't hurt if heart and kidneys are normal. The more you take in the more the heart has to work to pump blood to the kidneys to get rrd of the salt. Extremely high salt levels in the blood can be deadly. ...Read more
Sea water: If it is salt water it is hypertonic and if you drink enough of it your sodium level will increase. Subsequent side effects depend on the level of hypernatremia, but first increased thirst, muscle cramping, and if only consuming salty sea water dehydration ensues with resulting (temporarily reversible) kidney injury. Then confusion, seizure, brain bleeding and ultimately death. ...Read more

Drinking too much alcohol can raise blood pressure to unhealthy levels: Having more than three drinks in one sitting temporarily increases your blood pressure, but repeated binge drinking can lead to long-term increases. Heavy drinkers who cut back to moderate drinking can lower their systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by 2 to 4 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and their diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number in a blood pressure reading) by 1 to 2 mm Hg. Heavy drinkers who want to lower blood pressure should slowly reduce how much they drink over one to two weeks. Heavy drinkers who stop suddenly risk developing severe high blood pressure for several days. If you have high blood pressure, avoid alcohol or drink alcohol only in moderation. Moderate drinking is generally considered to be: Two drinks a day for men younger than age 65, One drink a day for men age 65 and older, One drink a day for women of any age. A drink is 12 ounces (355 milliliters) of beer, 5 ounces (148 milliliters) of wine or 1. 5 ounces (44 milliliters) of 80-proof distilled spirits. Keep in mind that alcohol contains calories and may contribute to unwanted weight gain — a risk factor for high blood pressure. Also, alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness and increase the side effects of some blood pressure medications. ...Read more

No problem: Interesting question as it sounds like you may be aware that chamomile tea is known to prevent platelets from clumping, thus preventing blood clots. This is a good thing, as if platelets clump then they'd be of no use to the person you were donating to. You don't want platelets to clump until you need them to form a blood clot. Effects of chamomile on them should not persist. Go ahead and donate! ...Read more

Hyperaldosteronism: As long as you eat a balanced diet, it will have no effect. If you drink all of your calories in beer and do not eat, your potassium level will fall since the calories in the beer require potassium to be utilized. It doesn't matter what the alcohol is. If you eat properly, the potassium will remain normal. Need to make sure a low potassium in you with hypertension isn't hyperaldosteronism. ...Read more

Can my husband drink Hibiscus Tea if he is on Warfarin. He take 5mg. daily. His INR has to be 2.0 to 3.0...Thank you?
Not sure: I couldn't find anything specifically about HIBISCUS tea, but tea in general can both antagonize warfarin (lower the INR) and also promote bleeding by interfering with platelet function which won't show up in the INR. That said, I'll bet a lot of people on warfarin drink tea, so if he loves tea, I'd say use it cautiously and monitor the INR. ...Read more

Every day i drink green tea in the evening i don't have problems with sleep but the day i drink normal tea in mrng i just can't sleep at all why?
Caffeine: There is more caffeine in black tea than in green tea. If you are sensitive to stimulants like caffeine, this could disrupt your sleep.

No. Too much sugar.: The human body is not meant to eat sugar except in occasional small quantities. Sugar does bad things to the body. It is best to order the tea with no added sugar.

Healthy people might have one drink a week, with no added sugar. ...Read more

No such thing: Detox is such an appealing concept... It seems logical we can take a tea or herb or medical preparation and sweat or bathroom out all the carcinogens, toxins, bad food and bad habits we are exposed to.
