Liver Detox Tea Formula

If you sometimes overindulge during the holidays, this tea formula can help to detoxify a sluggish system, improving circulation of blood and energy to the liver.

10 g dandelion root
10 g burdock root
5 g fennel
5 g ginger
5 g milk thistle
2 g mugwort

1. Mix the dried herbs with 1 1/3 quarts of pure water and bring to a boil in a non-aluminum cooking pot. Simmer slowly for about 20 minutes, then remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes.

2. Strain into a bottle and take 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of warm tea, 3 times per day.

3. Extra tea may be kept fresh in the refrigerator, but each dose should be warmed up before drinking.

Does this have potential to interfere with prescription medications? Where is there a good place to look that up?
