Question from Heyjude: Would you recommend a Chinese medicine for someone on chemo to cleanse the liver?
Answers - Raymond Chang No. Cleaning the liver, assuming the liver is dirty, is not a traditional Chinese function. It's a modern superstition I think: the idea that there's a dirty liver that needs to be cleaned.
