    Does anyone know if I am doing the right thing giving my wife strong anti oxidants as she has Primary Bilary Cirrhosis? They include grape seed extract and maritime pine bark

    Please check with her doctor before starting or stopping any type of medication or supplement - prescription or non-prescription. If there are risks involved, it could be dangerous.

    Call the doctor today - Haylen

    Thank you for your reply but what is your opinion on coffee eenemas. I need to find out if these are ok for my wife. I know they detoxify the liver but will of course check with my wifes doctor.

    would think there would be no problem taking antioxidants in moderation - antioxidants are beneficial to the immune system and eliminating free radicals from the system
