Milk Thistle for Liver Health:  Podcast Show 167 Herb Lab

Yaakov Levine, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Nutritional Health Coach explained on our last show how milk thistle works and what herbs you can combine it with to make it more effective. This week Sue and Candace explore more uses for milk thistle and creative ways to bring it into your life. Although it can be used as a single herb remedy, it works well with a host of other herbs too. There are so many reasons to love this herb!

In Herbal 101, we answer a question from podcast listener Kristel B. who asked if thyme stems were safe to consume. Be warned, Sue and Candace were a couple of goofballs that night. Thank you, Kristel for your question and for giving us a minute to relax in front of the microphone. ‘Tis the season for silliness!
