Can I drink hibiscus tea while breastfeeding my almost 2 month old baby??

Can I drink hibiscus tea while breastfeeding my almost 2 month old baby??

Stay away: A lot of herbal tea ingredients aren't recommended due to unknown effects. I'm sure the occasional bit of tea isn't any harm at all but I wouldn't drink them constantly without confirmation from your pediatrician and just stick to straight black or green tea. Hibiscus is on the list because, I believe, it can influence estrogen. ...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?

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

I drank hibiscus tea and felt nauseaus after. I wanted to vomit and so I did. I felt better instantly. Is that just my body's way of releasing toxins or should I be worried?

I drank hibiscus tea and felt nauseaus after. I wanted to vomit and so I did. I felt better instantly. Is that just my body's way of releasing toxins or should I be worried?

Don't be worried: Because your body took care of the issue. Hibiscus tea is quite safe, even has some health benefits like reducing blood pressure. Plus, it's tasty! But maybe your body is saying you don't like it, or there was something else in it that didn't agree with you. I wouldn't worry too much about toxins being involved at all. ...Read more

If green tea can help prevent glaucoma, would teas like hibiscus also have this effect, since it has many antioxidants?

If green tea can help prevent glaucoma, would teas like hibiscus also have this effect, since it has many antioxidants?

Wrong assumption: Green tea has been promoted as a palliative, even a cure, for multiple disease states. There is no evidence for its effectiveness in any of these conditions. That includes glaucoma. So a false assumption, that it can prevent glaucoma, then becomes expanded into - herbal teas and anything containing antioxidants as a curative. All of these need clinical testing; so far none are cures. ...Read more

Hi there. Will dexedrine decrease the efficacy of depo provera (medroxyprogesterone)? Will hibiscus tea decrease the efficacy?

Hi there. Will dexedrine decrease the efficacy of depo provera (medroxyprogesterone)? Will hibiscus tea decrease the efficacy?

Don't think so: Umm, there aren't too many approved uses for Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) that I know of. Is this really what you are taking? I don't think it would interfere with the action of depo provera, (medroxyprogesterone) but it could certainly help contribute to a stroke. Hibiscus tea will not interfere. ...Read more

I drank a hibiscus tea refresher yesterday. A few minutes later I felt dizzy, vision blurred, face numb, hot&flushed. Was this an allergic reaction?

Probably allergic: But then it may also be a chemical reaction from a contaminant in the tea refresher. I recommend that you consult a B/C allergist in your area to get this checked out because the reaction can be potentially more severe the next time around. Don't delay. ...Read more

Can tea with rose hips, lemon balm, lemon verbena, and hibiscus flower affect birth control or hormones?

Can tea with rose hips, lemon balm, lemon verbena, and hibiscus flower affect birth control or hormones?

Broad question but..: I know of no known interactions between these herbs and oral contraceptives. As to whether these have any affect on hormones, that is a very broad question. I found one website that says lemon verbena can help regulate menstrual cycles and help with PMS, but it did not provide references so I don't know if research confirms this. Lemon balm is thought to help regulate thyroid hormone levels. ...Read more

Good day doc. I wnt to ask f it s good or bad to drink bottled ice tea. Coz I've been dnking lyk 2 to 3 bottles a day. Thanks.

It's ok: Let's put it this way. 2-3 bottles of iced tea a day is probably not going to hurt you. The thing you worry about with increasing intake is the caffiene exposure. 'All things in moderation' is a good adage to live by. ...Read more

Immune system active: Whether you know it or not, our immune systems are working everyday for us, often 'behind the scenes'. What you describe here sounds relatively harmless. We're exposed to moulds/bacteria/viruses--every day. If this was a problem, there would be noticeable symptoms which you don't have. The best thing to do is throw out that container and and watch for any mould next time. ...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. But sadly there is no magic bullet here... Colon cleansing, detoxifying, are all not helpful and can often be dangerous. Once stuff is in the colon, its already on its way out. ...Read more
