What could have caused this?
My mom was nervous for the dentist. So I gave her a mixture cup of Chamomile and Spearmint.
Chamomile for her to sleep better and Spearmint to prevent any indigestion. I tea bag of Traditional Medicinals Chamomile and 2 teaspoons of Spearmint in 8 oz. of water. She had a terrible reaction that lasted for one week. She drinks Spearmint all of the time and has had Chamomile for her soar eyes a few times. She could not quit belching (indigestion) for a while CONSTANTLY, she could not eat and could barely sleep. It was very scary!
That night she drank it she slept great but the next morning is when it started. She woke up with gas, had a peach and more spearmint to sooth her gas.
What could have caused this?!? There is so much tea you buy from the store with Spearmint and Chamomile mixed. Was the amounts given an overdoes? Or could it be possible that her stomach was unable to handle both together? Or was there something in her stomach that the tea brought out? She really likes the chamomile sleepy effects but is afraid to drink it again because of the bad reaction.
