Herbs for Health/Can this happen


I am wondering if drinking green tea can cause nausea?  I noticed right after I drink Green Tea I feel queasy and nauseous.

Hi Debbie,

Yes. With some people, green tea can cause nausea, upset stomach, and diarrhea. All green tea extracts are not created equal. You might try another brand.

Debbie, anytime an herb or supplement causes discomfort, discontinue usage.

Best wishes,

Herbs for Health

I can answer most questions on herb usage and and am very familiar with (gras) herbs, generally recognized as safe. I am very knowlegible in nutritional healing. I have extended education in detoxing the body and fasting for health. I believe in the Naturopathic belief, the body get sick in only two ways; either because it is too toxic, or it is malnurished. I grow, wildcraft, and make most of my herbal remedies.
