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.

Duodenal ulcers are: Caused by bacteria. So if you know you have one, no diet is going to help unless you get rid these bacteria. If all you have is indigestion, then you can try different diet.

NO. Don't use it: Garcinia cambogia is in most weight loss supplements, and can cause liver failure.It was also used in Hydroxycut which was taken off the market as people died from using it.
