  • *I used to get really sharp pains in my stomach area and I had doctors perform every test you can imagine and they couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. One day my landlord (little old german lady) told me I should try taking milk thistle pills. I was ready to try anything so I bought a bottle and stared taking one every day. No side effects whatsoever and the pains are gone. I should say that I’ve also stopped drinking just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps anyone also experiencing pain in the stomach area.
