I just found out that my brother has HCV too! Welcome aboard!
Come on in, the waters great! Just kiddin', but anyway, it
looks like I am gonna be ordering more each month so that
I can get him on the program. I got my most recent blood work
back and it looks like I am almost cured! I have been feeling
a lot better lately and my symptoms have almost gone away!
I have actually been running 6 miles at a clip! My virus count
is under 600 but I am still testing positive for HCV, I don't
Lloyd, how many people do you know that are actually testing
negative for HC after going on your program? The reason I
ask is not because I am doubting you, it's because I don't
see that many actual success stories on your web site. All
I see are stories of how people are feeling so much better
and their symptoms are way down like me. I know that you,
yourself no longer test positive, but how do you think it
will take for me to totally get rid of this hideous thing?
PS- How's your email situation, any better?
There are a not that many reports of complete clearance on
my message board for number of reasons. I will attempt to
I get a myriad of phone calls from folks telling me their
story and updating me on their condition. Translating this
information to the web site is a daunting task. Many people
who have followed my program with diligence have stories of
testing negative for Hepatitis C. In the past many testimonials
came as emails which were easy to post to the web site, phone
calls are great because I get to talk with people, but typing
them up for posting sometimes gets away from me.
I like to back up success stories
with blood tests. Unfortunately, the doctors are often reluctant
to give these test results to their patients. Please be aware
these tests results are your personal property and if you
request them they cannot deny you. If you send me before and
after blood tests I will post them for others to be encouraged
by. Be aware the viral load tests and liver panel protocol
has changed from ml. to IU. This makes comparing the past
tests with current tests very difficult.
The bottom line is that most of us
are just not conditioned to change our life style and practice
the necessary changes for 18 months or the rest of our lives.
We are brought up in a world where when something goes wrong
we go to the doctor, get a shot, a pill and everything seems
fine. Spending 18 months on a program which costs are substantial
is not something many people actually do. Sure when starting,
most are feeling very positive and dedicated to persevering
with the 18 month program. However as in many situations the
reality versus the ideal are often different.
Here are a few examples of the reality
of the situation and people's good intentions:
One of my clients, one who usually
obtains 3 months of product at a time did not ask for more
aloe when she reordered. When we spoke she said she did not
like it and hadn't consumed much of it. I spoke with her regarding
the importance of properly prepared aloe and she promised
to try and drink some. This happens a lot with the tea as
Another person who had been on the
program 10 months called and his numbers were in the normal
range, down from over 200 and he said that he felt good, in
fact better than he had in some time and believed he was well.
Also, he expressed the need for the money he'd been spending
on the program for other parts of his life.
Often money is the major reason people
do not see the program all the way through. They feel fine,
the blood test numbers are greatly improved and their viral
load is very low. A decision is made to save their money and
go on about life as before or hopefully with some new habits.
I also have several hundred people
who only do part of the program, usually because of money,
and most of these people feel better and their tests improve.
There are many who experiment on their
own and incorporate what they think is good. I am always open
to new things, but, I have found that people who do what I
did have the best results. Time and time again I see this.
I hear from people who start the program, then go off and
do something else, then come back months or a year later and
start over again.
Many people start the program and after
a few months are feeling great and stop for a variety of reasons;
take a break for a month, school, vacation, or other events
in their lives that interfere with their commitment.
I am in no way able to remember every
reason I hear, but these are just a few. The part that disturbs
me the most is that I see what happens to people when they
I do hope this at least in part answers
Thanks for the lengthy response, Lloyd! That makes sense to
me and I am going to make sure that I don't become another
fallen statistic! Feel free to post this email correspondence.
