Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

Will liver and kidney detox supplements make medications less effective?

    So I have been wondering and hope someone can chime in.....will supplements that help cleanse the liver and protect it from the harmful effects of medications, etc... Make medications less effective?

    I have been reading others posts about supporting detoxification of liver and kidneys using things such as milk thistle, artichoke, dandelion, curcumin, and other things........but will these things make our liver "kick out" any medications we take more rapidly? A lot of meds I think are changed in the liver (I think this is one reason grapefruit juice is counter indicated with certain meds).

    Anyone have any input? I want a liver that is detoxing well but also want my meds to work lol

    Some herbals speed up drug metabolism, some slow it down.

    I found this from a 2005 issue of The Townsend Letter:
