Burdock Root is a mild diuretic. It increases the production of both urine and sweat, potentially making it useful in treating swelling and fever. Burdock Root might play a role in preventing liver damage caused by alcohol, chemicals, or medications. Antioxidants such as Burdock Root may protect body cells from damage caused by oxidation.
Sheep Sorrel is a rich source of oxalic acid, sodium, potassium, iron, manganese, phosphorus, beta carotene, and vitamin C. This native Ojibwa tea ingredient is a mild diuretic, mild antiseptic, and a mild laxative.
Slippery Elm Bark has been used as a poultice for cuts and bruises, and also for aching joints due to gout or other causes. It also regulates the elimination process of digestion, easing both constipation and diarrhea.
Turkish Rhubarb Root is a detoxifying herb and is well-known for its healing properties. Turkish Rhubarb Root purges the body of bile, parasites, and stagnating food in the gut by stimulating the gall duct to expel toxic waste matter. It has been shown to alleviate chronic liver problems by cleansing the liver. It has also been shown to help heal ulcers, alleviate disorders of the spleen and colon, relieve constipation, and help heal hemorrhoids and bleeding in the upper digestive tract.
Herbs used in later version of Ojibwa Herb Tea
Blessed Thistle is used for digestive problems such as gas, constipation, and upset stomach. This herb is also used to treat liver and gallbladder diseases.
Kelp is a sea vegetable that is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. Kelp, as a source of iodine, assists in making the thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body. Kelp is very nutrient-dense.
Red Clover is a source of many valuable nutrients, including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C. Red Clover is also one of the richest sources of isoflavones (water-soluble chemicals that act like estrogens and are found in many plants). Isoflavones prevent the proliferation of cancer cells and they may even destroy cancer cells.
Watercress is High in Vitamin C, Watercress is used as a general tonic, and its bitter taste is thought to regulate the appetite and improve digestion. It can be used to alleviate nervous conditions, constipation, and liver disorders. Watercress is used for cough and bronchitis remedy. It contains a remarkable substance called rhein, which appears to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the intestines.

As such, take prescription medications at an alternate time to consuming this tea.
