Can too many herbs or certain combinations of herbs cause bone marrow supression and anemia?

Most herbs will not suppress the bone marrow. The only ones I can think of that could potentially cause this would be those containing natural "aspirins". But this would still require very high doses.

Although, bone marrow suppression from autoimmunity could be aggravated by herbs high in immune stimulating polysaccharides.

Many herbs can bind iron though contributing to anemia. Mainly the herbs high in tannins, phytates or oxalates.
