I'm all for herbal remedies!
Before coming to Turkey I did extensive research (!) on the benefits of Milk Thistle. I liked what I learned, mainly that it has antioxidant powers that both prevent and repair damage to the liver caused by toxins aka alcohol.
Being honest and realistic I knew that I was going to be consuming more alcohol in the course of my holiday that I do the rest of the year.
Which is not a lot, I hasten to add
I felt it only responsible to try to counteract any harmful side effects of said alcohol. I started on a course of Milk Thistle tablets.
This morning as I went to take my tablet, I swear I heard my liver scream
"ARE YOU HAVIN' A LAUGH??? DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT THAT LITTLE THING IS GOING TO CANCEL OUT ALL THE HARM YOU DID TO ME LAST NIGHT? SERIOUSLY???
I think it might have a point :(
