    really bad acid reflux from this brand.. look for others instead, May 6, 2015
    By 

    This Milk thistle gave me really bad acid reflux.. not sure if it’s the quality of the ingredients or what but since then I’ve switched to this probiotic and the acid reflux has stopped. I don’t want to say that Jarrow is bad or anything, but maybe just for me personally the ingredients reacted negatively in my system. The effects from milk thistle in general for me have been awesome though.

    Hi, this is a true story – my own – about how well Milk Thistle (MT) works, and this brand in particular. I have a very severe form of Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) which causes painful contraction knots in the muscles called trigger points. In my case, virtually every muscle contains virtually every possible trigger point and there are over 620 possible. These knots are very painful and that pain can be eased somewhat by routine trigger point injections, where a needle is inserted into the knot and it is broken up and perforated to some extent to get it to release a little and relax.

    Here’s the problem: These trigger points are often filled with toxic metabolic byproducts from staying in a contracted state with subsequent constricted blood flow. When needled, this toxic sludge then gets into the bloodstream. In my case, needling just a few bad trigger points would release so much ‘yukky business’ into my body that I would have severe vertigo for 4 – 5 days, with the first couple being so bad that I would literally crawl around my house (live alone) to keep from falling over. Oh, I’m not the frail, sickly type either…I’m an ex-powerlifter and retired big city street cop…hardly the weak, excuse making type. But this poison would take me down fast and take almost a week to clear.

    Since the toxins had a predictable lessening, I knew my liver was clearing it, just REALLY slowly, so I sought ways to speed that up, either by helping my liver or deactivating the toxin. Since I really didn’t know what the poisons were, it was the liver route…or get used to seeing my house from my Corgi’s perspective.

    I found out that MT has been known for the bulk of human history as a liver remedy, but I thought that was just so much ‘folklore’ to be kind. Then I started discovering that MT has been tested in a variety of empirical settings and some rather unbelievable anecdotal ones as one of the better liver drugs out there…when balanced against its huge safety margin and therapeutic value, probably the best. In fact some of the pharmas use silymarin as the active agent in their liver drugs, which is simply refined MT. Good enough for me.

    Cut to the chase: I started taking 3 caps of MT, 3x a day and immediately all symptoms of vertigo and toxicity were gone. Yes, I said IMMEDIATELY…as in hours, not days. Once this efficacy was confirmed, I was able to have my clinician radically increase the number of trigger point injections. When I say radically, I went from about 4 or 5 injections knocking me out for a week, to tolerating 180 per session, 2x a week for four months. Thousands of injections that did immense good at actually taking the fight to the trigger points the way only a sharp needle can. I was able to eventually taper down to the recommended dosage of just 3 caps a day when the toxic load was much decreased.

    So here’s my take on Milk Thistle: This stuff works like I wish most things did…very, very well. I have had no side effects, in fact, it has prevented disabling side effects from another very effective treatment. Win – win.

    If your liver needs help, you could do a lot worse than MT. If you get nauseous from a massage, flushing yukky business out of your muscles, then start taking MT before, during, and after. Before I get too carried away, let me say that I’m not a doctor, but this stuff is amazing medicine for the right problems. Do your own research and you decide…it worked for me under conditions that you would have had to see to believe.

    I chose this brand because it had the most and best reviews…remembering what my doctor told me: “If you want to know if a medicine is any good or not, see if they reorder it.” Makes sense to me.

    UPDATE 05-04-13: Since I see that 21 people (at the time of this update) found this review hard to believe, let me add a few more pieces of information:

    1. Drinking alcohol now is kind of expensive…actually it’s largely a waste of time. Why? Whatever the MT does to the liver makes it clear ethanol VERY quickly…at least in my case. So a strong Belgian ale that would’ve been good for an hours buzz, now might give about 10 – 15 minutes. I’m not saying that I’m recommending drinking more if you use MT, just that it did something to my liver that is hard to explain medically, so I will just report what I observe.

    2. Anyone wondering about the actual dosages, frequency, locations, techniques, etc…in the admittedly rather extreme trigger point injection protocol should contact me directly. I will provide you with more than enough information to convince anyone including physicians. Let me state that Aetna Specialty Pharmacy told me that I received more injectable supplies BY FAR than the next closest patient in the entire network. The reason one can only get 4 injections (in my case) at the doctor’s office is that is all the…

    Since over-the-counter supplements are not regulated by the FDA. I subscribe to […] who independently tests nutritional supplements as they run their own tests to see if a product truly delivers what it says it does. Out of 10 different companies selling Milk Thistle in the market they tested, Jarrow was the only one who passed.
