Milk Thistle

I posted this on the Liver board, but I thought I'd try here too. I've read that Milk Thistle helps to clean out the liver, getting rid of toxins and traces of medications. I was on anti-depressants for almost two years, which slowed my metabolism drastically. Now that I'm off of the medication, I want to try to cleanse my liver of any traces of the meds that might still be inhibiting its normal function, and causing me to not loose weight as I once did. I've been taking Milk Thistle along with Spirulina for about a week and a half now. Will this do me any good in cleansing my liver. I've been off the meds for almost 4 months now, so has my body done the job for me, or will these supplements help? Any other supplements that might help? I've heard that drinking lots of water helps too . . . .THANKS!

Re: Milk Thistle

I also take Milk Thistle Extract along with a Liver Enhancer Extract that contains Shitake & Mitake. In addition, I take Schizandra plus a product called Liv-Flush. In the morning before breakfast I squeeze the juice of one lemon in a glass add one tablespoon liquid chlorophyll and one tablespoon aloe vera. To this add 8 oz distilled water. You can also consider juicing beets. Another thought (do a search) is a coffee enema. Be sure to use organic coffee and distilled water.
