I take warfarin how do tumeric, chilli, chia seeds, garlic, onions, ginger stinging nettle tea interact with warfarin?

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.

Not realistically: There is a hydrazine derivative in some mushrooms called agaritine that binds to DNA and in ridiculously high doses produces cancer in a few animal models. I know no bioscientist who avoids mushrooms. Such chemicals are ubiquitous and unavoidable. Orange juice and pepper contain similar stuff and so does your own feces.

That means less sugars, less fruits and less carbs overall. ...Read more
