Milk Thistle


Recommended Posts

I have been reading the book "Beating Cancer with Nutrition". I know that book has been talked about here before. I am thinking of having my Mom start taking selenium and milk thistle. Is anyone else taking milk thistle while on chemo or know much about it? It is supposed to be good for the liver and since she has liver mets I hope it might help.

I'm on milk thistle and selenium (among many other things). But my herbologist/dr. didn't have me start until my chemo treatments were done. He had me on another protocol (some chinese herbs, I can't remember exactly which ones) while getting treatments. But because of possible interactions, whatever is decided on, make sure the onc knows.
