Probably okay...: I don't believe if there is a study to confirm the potential interaction among these natural substances. So, use them in moderation, watch, and see.

Is vitamin C with rose hips really better than regular vitamin c? And is it possible to take too much vitamin c?
I take Chewable Vitamin C with Rose Hips 500mg tablets. Im assuming its 500mg a tablet? My main question is... Is it bad 2 take more than 2 at a time?
Vitamin C: Taking 1000mg will not be problematic relative to 500 mg but it would probably be more effective to take one 500mg tablet in the morning and the other at night. Your body's capacity for absorbing vitamin c is limited and once exceeded the balance is excreted and therefore wasted. Consider dosing twice a day rather all at once. ...Read more
Basic biology: Most fresh vegetables and fruits have vitamin c. Rose hips are pulped and added to synthetic vitamin c (manufactured from petroleum) in tiny amounts to give it glamour so the manufacturers can charge an inflated price.

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

Nsaids like ibuprofen,if you can take them, help reduce associated inflammation. If the hip joint was sprained,the treatment is similar. See an orthopedic specialist if symptoms worsen or persist longer than 7-10 days. ...Read more
Is it ok to use rose hip oil and vitamin E oil during pregnancy? I heard rose hip oil is high vitamin a. Is this beta carotene based?
Yes: No more than 10, 000 iu of preformed vitamin a should be taken during pregnancy but preformed vitamin a is only found in animal foods (meat, eggs, dairy). There are no vegetarian sources of actual vitamin a- any "vitamin a" said to be in those foods are from carotenes and those are very safe in pregnancy.
