If you suffer from fatty Liver, take this herb every day for 15 days.
Picrorhiza Kurroa root powder is easily available on a herbal store. You may buy it and take a half teaspoon with honey, every day, after breakfast. I can say so, because, I gave Picrorhiza Kurroa root powder to my father for a week. And he did suffer from fatty Liver and Pancreas, and now, he is cured.
He does not suffer from Fatty Liver at all. This herb gave satisfactory results in my dad's case. And i am happy about it.
