It is commonly used to treat conditions such as mastitis, breast abscesses, breast tenderness during PMS, irregular menstruation, as well as infertility caused by liver imbalances.
Doctors primarily prescribe milk thistle for liver problems like cirrhosis, viral and alcoholic hepatitis, and liver poisoning. It is also used as protection from medications that harm the liver.
