  • Garlic, when consumed in large amounts can lead to a burning sensation in your mouth and throat, cause nausea, diarrhea or vomiting.
  • In case you are allergic to fennel, consuming it can cause an allergic reaction that may include swelling of the lips, rashes, hives or difficulty in breathing.
  • Coconut water may lower your blood pressure.
  • Over-consumption of cloves may trigger allergic reactions, causing rashes and hives. It also contains a blood-thinning agent that can increase your risk of bleeding.

  • Although rare, but some people are allergic to basil leaves. In that case, having them can cause itchy eyes, vomiting, runny nose, hives or welts on your face.

What are the post-remedy guidelines?

The post remedy guidelines include:

  • Avoid spicy, acidic, fatty foods that can cause gastric problems. Reduce the consumption of soda and other carbonated drinks.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol, or drink in moderation.
