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. Turmeuric, chia seeds, garlic and ginger also thin blood and thus you might need to lower the dose. Rather than avoiding these one can consume consistent amounts & adjust coumadin accordingly or one can consider alternative meds or even supplements (under doc's guidance) to thin blood.

Can plexus slim be taken w seaweed nazacort echinachea opc grapeseed garlic Lipitor (atorvastatin) ginger omeprazole fish oil acetyllcartinine & glucosaminecondroit?

Can supplements like tumeric, black raspberry, mangosteen, pomegranate & noni aggravate existing acid reflux?
Yes : Turmeric is often touted as one of the best natural remedies for reflux but can aggravate reflux for some.

Maybe: There are some reported cases of patients who take Coumadin (warfarin) and fish oil who then have an elevated inr, the level which is checked when you're on Coumadin (warfarin) to ensure that it's working and your doses are correct. The interaction is unclear to pharmacologists, so my advice would be to take both and follow your inr carefully. You'd do that regardless of fish oil anyway! ...Read more

No one knows 4 sure: Warfarin is probably my least favorite of all pharmaceuticals because virtually every medicine & food seems to affect it & things that increase its activity can be dangerous. I thus try to use alternative treatments. However, regular coffee does not seem to affect it much & green coffee likely also does not. I can't find any research on this. If you take it be sure to monitor your protime to see. ...Read more

Do not waste your money on colon cleansing or risk your health for that matter. ...Read more
