After a few recent health scares, I want to try to do this. Apart from the obvious of cutting out alcohol, what else can I do to make my liver more healthy?

I don't dare google for fear of suddenly acquiring at least 4 fatal illnesses...

Milk thistle is very good and very well tested.

I was just about to say the same thing about milk thistle.... Was looking for a good article online about it, but couldn't find it.

There are many different homeopathic remedies you can take depending on your symptoms. Milk thistle might not actually work for you (but it won't do any harm).
As well as no alcohol, no caffiene (tea as well as coffee and coke), a low fat diet, and drink a cupp of hot water with lemon juice first thing every morning. And the main thing is to drink lots and lots of water throughout the day
