( Silybum marianum )
Traditional Chinese medicine attributes fibroids to liver problems. Because the liver breaks down excess circulating estrogen, taking milk thistle to help shrink fibroids makes sense. Many studies have shown that silymarin, a compound in milk thistle seeds, stimulates liver repair, blocks toxins from entering the organ, and protects it from free radicals.
Typical dosage is 140 milligrams of standardized silymarin 3 times per day for 3 months, than 90 milligrams 3 times per day, or 10 to 20 drops of tincture up to 3 times a day for 3 to 4 months
