    My allergies have been worse than ever this year. And.. my liver hasn't been doing so well the last couple months.. just these past 2 weeks I have had to do 5 Liver Flushes for the stones I could feel needing to come out (no gallbladder). And not small stones either. When people say they aren't stones, but you can FEEL them in the liver, and then there is definite relief from getting them out of there with liver flushing.. there's no doubt in my mind that they are cholestrol stones.

    Edit-- Just after posting this, I, finally, also had another major lightbulb go off (thanks to Telman's info), with the importance of both the bile salts, and choline for melting the fat/cholestrol so it could be eliminated in the bile and not coagulating and backing up. Especially with no gallbladder, but now I'm thinking that with gallbladder surgery being the #1 surgery done daily, how important adaquate bile salts and choline are in preventing stones from forming prior to ever getting to that point.

    No wonder my liver hasn't been able to also work with the allergen things I've been hitting it with..thinking I was helping it!

    Now, I'm getting a clearer picture. Because people say it's good for may not be good for YOU. Little did I realize..

    There is a warning on a bottle of liver herbs I have that say if you are allergic to Ragweed- to not take Milk Thistle.

    It says it here too, and you can find plenty more...

    >>If you have a ragweed allergy, you should also avoid milk thistle. Milk thistle may cause a rash or lead to severe allergic reaction.

    Since milk thistle may mimic the effects of estrogen, some women should avoid this herb. This includes women who have fibroid tumors or endometriosis. Additionally, women with breast, uterine, and ovarian cancers should not take milk thistle.>>>

    I've been taking Artichoke daily for the past 4 months
    and now discover the same thing about it...

    >>>Warning: Do not take this product if you have Gallstones or a bile duct obstruction, or are allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, or daisies.

    I'm also now finding out that Artemisia, and Dandelion are of that family too:

    Many of these foods also came up high for me on the biomeridian food sensitivy biofeedback test too.

    >>>In addition, there are some foods that should be avoided by people who have ragweed allergies. These foods are melons, bananas, chamomile tea, honey containing pollen, sunflower seeds, zucchini, and cucumbers. Symptoms can be more profound when eating foods during the season compared to eating them other times of the year.>>

    Add goldenseal to that list that has the same warning for those that have allergies to ragweed.

    >>If you are allergic to ragweed, take caution when using goldenseal; these herbs are from the same family.

    >>> Goldenseal may be contraindicated if allergic to ragweed.

    and safflower oil, which I've been doing my Liver Flushes with once a week, often-times having to do 2x a week.

    >>Do not take safflower if:
    You are allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and other related plants.

    And Elecampane, which I've used alot of for killing roundworms:

    Another place for what else to avoid in the ragweed family:

    Avoid certain foods that can compound
    ragweed symptoms including: honeydew,
    cantaloupe, watermelon, banana, and

    Other plants in the Ragweed family include:
     Sunflower
     Ragweed, Cocklebur, Marshelder, Franseria
     Sneezeweed, Marigold, Feverfew
     African daisy (Arctotideae)
     Calendula (Calenduleae)
     Straw flower (Induleae)
     Aster, Goldenrod, Groundselbush, Desert
    Broom (Astereae)
     Ironweed (Vernonieae)
     Dog Fennel, Joe-pye Weed (Eupatorieae)
     Chamomile, Yarrow, Pyrethrum,
    Chrysanthemum, Wormwood, Sage
     Ragwort, Butterweed (senecioneae)
     Thistle, Burdock (Cardueae)
     Gerbera Daisy (Mutisieae)
     Chicory, Lettuce, Dandelion (Cichorieae)
