babinurse have you been treated with the best available treatments for Hepatitus C such as alpha interferon? You might also consider some of the alternative treatments that have some evidence supporting their use. I think that these might include licorice (Glycyrrihiza glabra), Liver extracts, Milk thistle (Silybum marianum), Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum), Thymus extracts, and good old vitamin C. Many believe that diets high in fruits and vegetables are also helpful. You may wish to try and find a doctor open to integrating alternative approaches along with the latest clinical interventions to help you beat this disease.
Uhhh, careful with the herbal remedies. They are still potentially extremely hard on the body, especially kidneys and liver. Look to the current issue of Consumer Reports. They have an article on so called 'natural remedies'.
Herbal remedies are not, repeat, NOT harmless. Just because something is listed as "natural" it does not = safe. Botulism is natural. It's also fatal.
Anyone with a compromised liver whether it's Hep C or too much Tylenol needs to be exceedingly careful with medication.
This is not meant as a slam. But I see way too many people who come in because "I took my allergy medicine with my diet supplements and now my heart feels like it's swing dancing all over my chest".
Please take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon and get the care you need.
