I read or heard somewhere several months ago that if you get enough _________ in the last few weeks, jaundice won't be a problem. I can't remember what it was. Not that I had a problem last time, but if it's something easy to take, it can't hurt.
Anyone know what it might be?

Was it dandelion? We recommend dandelion to our clients for liver support.

The best cure for physiologic jaundice is breastmilk and sunlight!

I'm interested in hearing what others have to say....
