Background

Depuratives are herbs that are considered to have purifying and detoxifying effects

Empacho - In medicine and medical anthropology, a culture-bound syndrome, culture-specific syndrome or folk illness is a combination of psychiatric and somatic symptoms that are considered to be a recognizable disease only within a specific society or culture.

Oliguria or hypouresis (both names from roots meaning "not enough urine") is the low output of urine. In humans, it is clinically classified as an output more than 80 ml/day but less than 400ml/day
