Milk Thistle for Liver Problems

by Nancy
(Utah)

Hi Misty! In recent tests, it was discovered that I have a significant number of cysts on my liver. While they will probably only cause symptoms occasionally (if ever), and are currently non-cancerous, I would like to reduce their size and number nutritionally, if possible.

I know milk thistle is good for liver cleansing, especially in cases related to alcohol. But do you think it would be helpful in my situation, too? Any idea what kind of dosage we'd be talking about? Since January, I've been taking 2 teaspoons of cod liver oil every morning, and 1 Tablespoon coconut oil 3 times per day. I think I read the coconut oil is supposed to help with liver function, too.

Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for your wonderful site and helpful advice!

Hi Nancy!

The Milk Thistle should be good for reducing to eliminating your liver cysts as well, yes, the coconut oil.

Take the dosage as recommended on the bottle that you purchase and be sure to add some lemon juice to your water daily. Between the 3, your liver function should be in top shape based on the continuance of your adherence to the plan! Which, I know you're doing.... :0)

In good health!
