    I would like to find something that will help detoxify my liver. I know milk thistle is supposed to be good for the liver, but I can't take it, it makes me sick. Anyone know of something else?

    you can use dandelion root tea. It's good for your kidney's and liver. It tastes exactly like weak coffee. I love coffee, so this is great. Hope this helps.

    I don't use the root though, I dont like coffee substitutes. the root is also a laxative and I rarely use them.

    I do however, love a nice cup of dandelion leaf tea. It's a very gentle detoxer, unlike milk thistle which is too strong for me too. It makes me quite sick as well. I don't get a herx on dandelion leaf, but it helps me w/ one. You may like to mix w/ catnip as well, it's from the mint family and is more pleasant for many people. the combo is excellent and promotes relaxation, better digestion and a bulky healthy bowel movement the next day.

    Better go make myself a cup.
