Milk Thistle is a potent detoxifying herb that can help to aid liver function, manage cholesterol, prevent cancer, and lower blood glucose levels. It has powerful anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral properties and has been used over the years to help protect the liver from strong medications such statin drugs, phenytoin, seizure medication, and acetaminophen as well as from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Milk Thistle has been shown to help fight against hepatitis C as well inhibit cancer cell growth for breast, cervical, and prostate cancers. It has also been shown to benefit gall bladder disorders, cirrhosis, type 2 diabetes, parkinson’s disease, jaundice, obsessive-compulsive disorder, headaches, PMS, and rosacea. Milk Thistle is also highly effective in the treatment of osteoarthitis and other autoimmune conditions such as fibromyalgia, bursitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and eczema. It is esteemed for its ability to help restore and protect the liver from chemicals, environmental toxins, and alcohol and is excellent for helping to strengthen the digestive tract and aid in the healing of irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, and crohn’s disease. Milk Thistle is a rich source of zinc, selenium, iron, antioxidants, and flavonoids. Silymarin is the active compound in Milk thistle seeds that contains most of the healing properties. For the best results, look for a brand that states on the label that each dosage contains at least 70%-80% silymarin. Milk thistle can be taken as a tea, capsule, tincture, or extract form and is found online or at your local health food store.
HEALTH TIP: An awesome natural antiviral, antibacterial, & antifungal is oil of oregano, a natural substance that is extracted from wild oregano plants. Two key compounds found in it are carvacrol and thymol. Studies have shown that both of these compounds have significant effects on harmful micro-organisms that cause many illnesses in humans. It is important not to confuse oil of oregano with common oregano that is used as a spice for cooking. Common oregano is typically Origanum Marjoram, while oil of oregano is derived from Origanum Vulgare. Oil of oregano has been shown to be an effective pain killer. An article published in Phytotherapy Research describes how oil of oregano surpassed anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation and is nearly as powerful as morphine as a pain killer. But be careful - pure essential oil of oregano will BURN if you rub it on your skin or lips. When we feel like we’re getting sick, we rub it behind our ears and drink 8-10 drops mixed with orange juice. When you have a toothache or have any kinds of sores or abscesses in your mouth, try using oil of oregano. Since it’s very strong, mix with olive oil and rub around the infected tooth. Interestingly, the thymol in oregano oil is the ingredient in Listerine that fights bad breath! The oil also stimulates the flow of bile, which greatly aids digestion. — with Lisa Puchacz and 20 others.
