One of my favorite herbs and a must have in your healing chest is milk thistle. Having problems with your liver? Milk Thistle, known for regenerating the liver, cleansing the liver and healing the liver. Lately, I have not been taking my milk thistle, careless me. I guess there are just moments when you forget or neglect to focus on the importance of maintaining great health. When I was undergoing radiation treatment for my breast cancer, I consumed milk thistle on a daily basis because I was concerned about toxins from the radiation destroying my liver. The consistent usage of the herb speeds up the elimination of toxins from my body.

Here I list the illnesses milk thistle is used for: hepatitis; cirrhosis; inflammatory liver conditions; gallbladder and gallstones; liver damage from alcohol; chemicals; drugs; diabetes; viruses; pollutants; toxins and toxic plants.
The plant protects your liver from damage caused by medication: antipsychotic and chemotherapy drugs. There are no significant side effects or warnings from using milk thistle. This essential herb can be purchased in capsule form, tincture and dried herb at Whole Foods or any natural alternative store online and offline. Enjoy!
