Amoxicillin and many other drugs can raise the viral load millions of points, overnight

This is the results sent to me by one of my clients. She was prescribed Amoxicillin today, as she is experiencing a secondary condition, the flu. This secondary condition when combined with hep c offers us with hep c a difficult task as we are often sicker longer and with some more sever difficulties than people without hep c.

Also the drugs offered to us can cause serious problems that it seems no MD is willing to accept, the fact that Amoxicillin and many other drugs can raise the viral load millions of points, overnight and it can take years to get this number back down.

In health,

Get AST enzymes down.

 

2001-03    Symptoms began within 2 months of C-section in February 2001.  Constant diarrhea was the most obvious.  All other symptoms were attributed to being a new mom.

2003-07    Pain in upper abdomen.  Testing revealed multiple stones attached to gall bladder walls.  Decision made to remove gall bladder.  Dr. Briones removed gall bladder 2003-07-25.

2004-12    At this point I had numerous symptoms most notably elevated temperature averaging 100, 50% hair loss, numerous dry skin patches and acne, constant sweating, extreme pain in upper abdomen and still the diarrhea.  Many tests ordered including a full body MRI.  MRI revealed a couple of spots on my pancreas and a bubble between my ribs. 
Dr. Bhatti, gastroenterologist at ACMC in Willmar, explored the pancreas and biopsied the bubble fluid as well as performing a liver biopsy on 2004-12-9.  Pancreas spot had disappeared by this time and the bubble fluid was benign.  Liver biopsy was unremarkable (normal).  Bhatti suggested chemo/interferon (causes major depression) for the HCV.  I chose herbs.  Arrogant & non-communicative – don’t see again.

2005-04    Conference for HCV with Dr. John Lake, chief of staff of U of M gastroenterology department.  He offered the traditional chemo/Interferon therapy.  Discussed herbal pgm with him.  He said my stats weren’t alarming and if I wanted to try the herbs – fine.  He would order the chemo if I changed my mind.  Very nice man.

Per Dr. Lake and my herbologist, the liver enzymes are more important to focus on than the virus level since the liver functionality is critical.  Virus level will fluctuate greatly (by millions) after use of vaccines, anti-biotics and many pharmaceuticals.  Also stress and any illnesses will cause the level to escalate.  As with cancer, the goal for the virus level is to be ‘undetected’ which is a level less than 650 (?).  Considered cured if undetected for 6 months.  HCV interferes with the breakdown of iron so Ferritin levels are also tracked.
