Herbal Milkthistle and Liver disease
« on: September 07, 2006, 03:00:43 PM »
I've been struggling with liver toxicity...(and NO, I have NEVER BEEN A DRINKER)....and I'm considering Milkthistle extract as a possible way to "cleanse" my Liver.....Some studies say it can cause complications....Others, that it has no "real" effect......Still Others swear by it.....HELP! I don't know who to believe.....! Have any of you had any experieces that could help me decide? I trust the input of the people here over all the studies I have located.....My Doctor just looks kinda stumped......Sigh....

I find it hard to understand how the liver can be "cleansed" at all. It just doesn't make any sense. I would avoid milk thistle if I were you.

Your liver can look after itself.
