It is a great detoxifier, but you do not want that to be its job or else this is the result. You need to find out why the other organs such as the liver, Intestines and her lungs are not functioning it optimal detoxification.

Yes, she can have kids but she needs have genetic counseling and must see a high risk specialist.
