I contracted Hepatitis C in 1979 from 4 blood transfusions
A liver biopsy in 1994 revealed Chronic Hepatitis C. After Cancer, Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy and now Hep C, my liver was in bad shape. The medical establishment advised me to get my papers in order and expect to live another 3 to 5 years, and hope that something would come along to help.
18 years later, I have been virus free for 16 years, with no detectable virus.
Here you will find correspondences and findings about Hepatitis C treatment, trials and natural health.
Good morning Lloyd,
This is so exciting, these numbers seem to correlate with how my life has been going and how I've been feeling these days…it almost wasn't a surprise : ) I'm so grateful to have so much support, your team is wonderful and caring, offering so much more than supplements!
So with all that I could continue this email with love and praise but … that goes without saying.
Thank you, N : )

Went for bloods recently and ALT was down to 320 from 475 last month when I last wrote to you. Ferritin is normal at 165 (first time since I started getting tests done) and I am sure that's down to the phlebotomy's. As for all the other numbers they are either normal or slightly high, nothing to be worried about.

Considered the drug of choice for hepatitis C and chronic liver disease, interferon may cause side effects and even death when used a second time, according to a new review.

I'm writing to get your opinion on where best to spend my limited funds on specifically virus eradication as everything else is in good shape. I see you've got some VEP packages available. My stats and story below -
32, male, found out I had Hep C when I was 18, back in 1999 after both my parents found out they had it. We were the only ones in the family to be positive. Its assumed I was either born with it, or got it from them when I was young. Went through the Interferon treatment with my Dad around 2000, stopped before the year was up because I really didn't enjoy it (obviously) I stopped going to doctors for the next 10 years until about 1/12 years ago when I got a new job and had health insurance again.
I never drank, ate well, and exercised over those last 10 years.
In Apr 2011 I got a full checkup with the following results -
Viral load - 459810 (it was 354000 when last tested in 2000)
In Oct 2012 I read your book, and started taking daily -
4 x Naringenin 250mg
2 x Quercetin 300mg
3 x Milk Thistle 550mg
2 x Olive Leaf 405mg
2 x Cat's Claw 330mg
I also take 6-12 grams Vit C daily, selenium, fish oil, misc other vitamins and minerals, and occasionally drink a cup or two or milk thistle tea, and dandelion root.
In Oct 2012 right before I started taking all the supplements -
ALT - 58
AST - 39
Viral load - 702679
Last test was in Dec 2012
ALT - 48
AST - 32
Viral load - 927304
So far no reduction in viral load, so I'm specifically looking to invest my time and money into the more potent virus eradicators and not so much in the general health / liver health, if that makes sense.
You're welcome. I have participated on some forums wherein you are variously referred to as "dead on" or "whacko trying to sell something." :-) It is amazing the degree of fear that is raised about true disease, and how trusting and accepting people are of the drugs.
I ended interferon in 12/08. My thyroid is still fried, I have psoriasis still and I have arthritis and some degree of cognitive impairment, my liver damage rapidly accelerated to cirrhosis during and immediately after treatment. I am, however, feeling far far better than I was. I cannot tell you what a horrible, lonely terrifying experience it was. Somebody needs to be in jail.
You have a number of times responded kindly to my inquiries. I thank you very much for doing so. I occasionally have sent you stuff like the below and will likely continue to do so.

Nonresponders to Interferon-based Treatment of HCV Exhibit an Increased Long-Term Hazard of Cirrhosis Compared to Never TreatedPosted April 3rd, 2013 by admin
The long-term consequences of failed interferon-alpha based hepatitis C treatment on liver morbidity and survival have not been fully explored. We performed retrospective analyses to assess long-term clinical outcomes among treated and untreated patients with hepatitis C virus in two independent cohorts from a United States Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a University Teaching Hospital. Eligible patients underwent liver biopsy during consideration for interferon-alpha based treatment between 1992 and 2007.
