Who can help me figure out what is in this medication(?)

A family friend went to a medicine man in South America and received an herbal medicine to heal her son's Aspergers. I am skeptical about such things, and feel she should not give him the medication without knowing what plants are actually in it.

Though she still wants to try, my worries have given her pause, and she has asked me to find someone who could tell us what is in the medicine. I have no idea how to go about this - a chemist? Another herbal doctor? Where would I find them?
The packages are completely unlabeled, and it would be difficult to track down the original medicine man to find out the ingredient list, so the easiest solutions are apparently off the table.
Thanks for your help!
