Don't spend too much: I'm sorry i can't offer you more. A concoction of milk thistle (which has failed most scientific testing for liver disease) and artichoke leaves and other cheap vegetables appeals to the imagination and emotion of people who are desperate.

No: Heads up -- "pop" remedies are often not what they're supposed to be, and some "holistic chinese herbal remedies" are nasty actually liver poisons. If your liver enzymes are up, your physician may retest you off all rx's and alcohol; if still up, labs for hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's and a few others are in the works; if it's not this, a rx for aerobic fitness may be a life-saver. ...Read more
Are there natural sources of Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors? I've read pomegranate, milk thistle and turmeric are? True?
