Dr Weil recommends thistle and another herb:

"Iíve known a number of patients who have reversed hepatitis C using milk thistle in conjunction with another

natural remedy, Schizandra (Schisandra chinensis), the fruit of a Chinese plant. Schizandra berries, like

milk thistle, are nontoxic and support healthy liver function. I usually recommend them as part of a natural

treatment protocol developed by Dr. Qingcai Zhang in New York. (www.dr-zhang.com) "
