Thanks, Gym. Just one more question -- how long in advance? A week?
Do I know what you mean :>)
I said I'm sure i forgot some!! Actually you must stop all supplements and ask if you should take your meds. with just a sip of water!!
Don't mean you're really awful, you know what I mean.
What about fish oil? Wouldn't that be one to avoid as well? And I was under the impression turmeric and garlic were also mild blood thinners. True? The only ones you mentioned I take are garlic and ginseng, but I take eleuthero mainly, which isn't really ginseng, and American ginseng when I used to go to the gym, which I've been avoiding for several weeks now due to injuries. Are these included, of just Chinese ginseng? And should I avoid the bilberry? And are you mentally preparing to face how awful a person you are at Yom?
No vit. e, echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St. John's wort valerian. I'm sure i forgot some!
So is that one I should stop before surgery?
Meds. for diabetes, blood clotting meds. like Coumadin
Just be careful as bilberry can interact with other meds!!
This should be fine. Of course, you can overdose on anything if you take humongous amounts of it, but this is just a couple of berries, and they don't do the same things.
