As a long time sufferer of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, NAFLD, the article “Threat from liver disease growing” (Page A1, June 14) sounded the alarm of the growing problem with no remedy. There are many supplements on the market to treat this chronic and deadly condition. One of the main ingredients is milk thistle. Anyone over the age of 40 should be taking milk thistle, especially if on medications; you don’t have to be obese. The disease usually involves the gallbladder and the pancreas, so you need supplements for those organs also. The disease can be maintained or reversed.

Vegetable juicing is very beneficial. There are many good products, so do some research. Don’t rely only on doctors. Find a health coach who knows supplements such as Xanthigen, SAMe and Vitamin E. There are many more.
