Alternative Treatments to Help Strengthen the Body Against Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a disorder of the liver caused by a viral infection. The liver becomes damaged increasing the risk for other serious diseases, such as cancer. However, according to many alternative medicine doctors the medical treatment that is provided to treat Hepatitis C makes the disease worse. Like most drugs given to treat health conditions, there are a number of side effects associated with the drug interferon. Also, in some cases the drug may not be effective in treating Hepatitis at all. Many alternative doctors also believe that the drug may interfere with the healing process and believe there are alternative treatments that work much better to help strengthen the body against Hepatitis C.

The first one is Milk Thistle. Milk thistle helps rebuild damaged cells in the liver. Doctors recommend taking two 150 mgs of milk thistle extract three or four times a day. Make sure it has 70 to 80 percent silymarin, which helps strengthens the liver. You can also take a multi-herb supplement that has turmeric, artichoke leaf, gentian, and ginger. Taking these following herbs can help eliminate the virus and build up the immune system. The first is lemon balm, add 1 teaspoon of dried or fresh herb to 1 cup of boiling water. Let it sit for 15 minutes, strain, and drink two to three cups of the tea a day.

Take one 300 mgs capsule or tablet of St. John’s wort twice a day, make sure it contains 0.3 percent hypericin. Take 1,500 to 2,000 mg of Shiitake twice a day with 9 percent schisandris. Garlic is an excellent alternative treatment to help strengthen the body against Hepatitis C. You can either eat a few cloves a day of fresh or cooked garlic or take garlic capsules a day that contain 3,000 to 4,000 mcg of allicin in them.

Of course, a healthy diet can also help to strengthen the body against Hepatitis C and boost the immune system. Increase your daily intake of nutritional supplements in your diet and herbs as an alternative treatment to help strengthen the body. Providing your liver with supplements and herbs strengthens the liver’s job in eliminating toxins in the system. Cut down on red meats that can cause the liver to overwork. Acupressure is another alternative treatment that works to fight against Hepatitis C attacks.

If you believe you have Hepatitis C, be sure to see your doctor first.
