    I have read a lot on the subject and have started using herbal remedies alongside medication .

    The only thing I have heard about herbal recipes is that cannabis oil (CBD) is the best, and that is from a health professional advice to me.

    I know you can make a good alcoholicwine from nettles and dandelions, we have a thistle here called radium weed that is" supposed" to cure skin cancer.

    What do you want to achieve with them? I assume the milk thistle is for your liver? Dandelion for your veins? I've basically tried the bulk of these and I can barely remember what I took for what, but in the end, a low carb diet sorted more than the herbal (and expensive) remedies did. I will say that CBD oil does help me sleep when I am going through a bout of insomnia and such... Excellent stuff, but can't be taken with certain other meds like diazepam, so careful if you're on other things as well.
