    Yes, because grapefruit is a P450 inhibitor. The jury is out about grapefruit seed extract--I have read conflicting opinions, but in my experience is does seem to be, so yes, it is important to consider the half lives of the drugs you are taking.

    I've read conflicting reports about grapefruit seed extract also, but I'll take your experience into consideration.

    In one of my previous posts I suggested neem oil. I noticed that some brands say that it's external use only, but I've seen at least one that can be used internally. If you're not swallowing the oil I'm not sure it matters.

    One Indian friend over 70 years old tells me that they used to swallow a very small cup of neem oil for deworming every year. She remembers it as AWFUL!
    But it worked.
    She is a pharmacist, born in a South Indian pharmacist family.
    This is not a recommendation that you do the same!

    I oil pull every day - it greatly reduces the number of spots on my skin, so it is clearly helping with detoxification somehow. As soon as I stop, the spots come back. After starting again, within a couple of day they start to go. It really is amazing.
