    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    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
