Alternative medicine uses milk thistle to alleviate heartburn and allergies. To treat certain illnesses, milk thistle may have been used with other herbs or extracts.
Nicholas Culpepper, 17th-century botanist, astrologer, physician, herbalist, and author of the Complete Herbal (1653 CE), agreed. Culpepper advocated boiling the young, fragile plant as a spring tonic or alternative. It was eaten like boiling cabbage back then (after removing the spines, of course). Artichoke-like flowerheads were also eaten. The milk thistle root was used. Milk thistle seeds were eventually used by Eclectics (physicians who used botanical treatments in the 1800s and early 1900s) to treat "liver, spleen, and renal congestion."
