For Herbal Supplementation: "It seemed to work I was having acne I believe to be from sluggish liver it began clearing up my skin beautifully , but when I stopped I began having headaches, my skin started to return to prior way it was slowly, and just feeling the same way I was feeling before I had taken it . I don't know if I should continue or not guess it's time for a doctor's appointment"

For Herbal Supplementation: "Shameful of being an alcoholic but also a realist, the decision was finally made to "get the better of my "Monster"!.' Three years prior to becoming sober I began taking the 'suggested-on-the-bottle-dosage' of milk thistle, three times a day. A pharmacist/client had suggested I do this for the "sake of your liver". Just prior to stopping drinking, finally, I had various tests run for my physician's and my curiosity. One year after becoming sober the same tests were again run. The liver test was almost normal. I am sorry I do not know the "numbers" but I was told my liver function was about 55% while drinking. Now it was 94%! And it continues to improve as I still take this supplement. Thank you dear pharmacist and milk thistle!"

For Herbal Supplementation: "I had a PSA reading of 4,847; after one month of starting Milk Thistle (500mg) 3X daily for a month; my liver count was normal, my kidney function was normal; and amazingly....my PSA dropped to 30. A year later, my PSA is still 30. Liver and kidney function is still normal ranges."

For Herbal Supplementation: "I took this for cirhosis. The milk thistle improved my enzyme levels on blood tests, but not by a huge degree. It seems to slow the progression of liver disease in many cases. It is no cure, but a helpful treatment, especially when combined with folic acid and NAC."
