I take warfarin how do tumeric, chilli, chia seeds, garlic, onions, ginger stinging nettle tea interact with warfarin?
It's complicated but: I dislike warfarin because virtually every medicine and herb interacts with it.

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
