article is worth reading. I disagree with much of it. I
am publishing it because people need to know the devastating
facts about the hepatitis c epidimic. Hepatitis C is the
largest epidemic in the history of man. The Hepatitis C
epidemic is several times larger than the Aids problem.
Check the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
website for statistics on aids in the US. Three Quarters
of one million people in the US have been diagnosed with
Aids from the beginning.
need help from celebrities and politicians that care, not
ones that are bought by the pharmaceutical companies.
in Fifty Americans Has Hepatitis-C!
by Roger Mason
have been asking me about hepatitis-C because two per cent
of the American population is infected with it. This
is in ADDITION to all the other types of hepatitis.
Even worse, four per cent- one in
twenty five- people in the world have hepatitis-C.
That's right, we have about 250 million people in the world
with hepatitis-C, plus all the other six types we know about
is four times as much hepatitis-C as AIDS, yet AIDS gets
all the press, all the attention and most all the research
money due to political influence. We cannot even define
what a virus is much less treat a virus. That's right, we
have almost no anti-viral drugs and we're in the Dark Ages
regarding knowledge and treatment of viruses of any type.
It was only identified in 1989 and blood transfusions were
the main cause as no one could test for the virus.
just don't know the actual statistics in most countries,
but we can estimate the minimum infection rate. It is estimated
that ten per cent of black American men are infected. At
least ten per cent of male homosexuals are infected. It
is also estimated that China's one billion plus population
has at least 10 per cent of them infected with some type
of hepatitis. Some African countries have a 20 per cent
rate- that we know about. This
is an epidemic folks.
can be infected for life and never know it- but still infect
others. You can carry the virus for decades and never come
down with symptoms and die of old age. You can end up with
cirrhosis or liver cancer and die early. Nine out of
ten infected people have no idea they are carrying it!
per cent of people don't have a clue as to how they even
got infected. You didn't read all this in your morning newspaper
did you? This is a viral inflammation of the liver and it's
transferred by blood contact. Half of chronic liver disease
is due to hepatitis-C. This is the leading cause of liver
transplants. That infective blood can be months old dry
brown blood and not just fresh and red. It is not easy
to get it thru sexual activity, but you are playing Russian
roulette here. Sharing toothbrushes and razors are very
efficient ways of transmission.
are seven types of hepatitis known now and surely we'll
keep finding more in the future. Let's discuss them
very briefly so you'll know the situation basically. Hepatitis-A
is "only" from the fecal to oral route, but this means that
immigrant who works in the restaurant you eat at at doesn't
wash his hands in the bathroom can give it to you just like
dysentery. Or you can eat unwashed fruits and vegetables.
Fortunately this is usually a short term infection and goes
away on its own. Hepatitis-B
can also go away on its own, but you can also remain chronic
or you can even die from it. Hepatitis-D
can only hitchhike using hepatitis-B as a carrier. Sexual
intercourse is a common route and the infection is usually
occurs in Third World countries through the the fecal route
like hepatitis-A. Due to our high immigration rates and
lack of control this is becoming more and more common here.
After an acute infection this usually clears up. Hepatitis-F
is "inferred to exist". That's all I can find out about
F at this time. Hepatitis-G
is the latest to be discovered in 1995. Little is known
about it at this time. I just can't wait for hepatitis H
to be discovered.
almost no one gets an appointment for a hepatitis screen
and you can carry it for decades with no symptoms, what
are the symptoms when you do get an active infection? Flu-like
symptoms, liver pain, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome,
joint pain, night sweats, depression, mood swings, fatigue,
reactions to alcohol, abdominal bloating, frequent urination,
loss of appetite, itchy skin, aversion to eating fat, diarrhea,
headaches, brain fog, poor sleep, chest pains, edema, puffy
face, blood sugar disorders, lymph swellings (armpits, neck,
groin), dizziness, numbness in hands and feet, eyesight
problems and such signs as this.
can you do to avoid this? Don't do anything where you would
come in contact with old or new blood. Know who you are
being intimate with. Do not share razors. All acupuncturists
use disposable needles. All tattoo parlors are licensed
by the state health department.
can you do if you're infected? Go to the doctor to get
various diagnostic tests. Do NOT get a biopsy under any
circumstances. Do NOT take interferon, ribavirin or any
other "wonder drugs". Once you are diagnosed with any liver
infection- whether it is hepatitis or not- get as far away
from the medical profession as you can. Is all the doctors
talk about is "interferon, interferon, interferon.." even
though it is a dangerous and toxic drug that has minimal
benefit. Doing research on this was very depressing because
it seemed every third abstract was on interferon. You must
change your diet and lifestyle. This is a liver infection.
The liver breaks down fats, processes proteins and metabolizes
drugs. The worst thing you can do is drink alcohol. Other
than vanilla extract or cooking sherry in Chinese dishes
you can not have one single drink ever. You must get off
all prescription drugs. You shouldn't be on prescription
drugs in the first place as there is always a natural alternative
to synthetic poisons. Recreational drugs have to go as most
all of these are metabolized by the liver, especially cocaine,
ecstasy, opiates, amphetamines and depressants. You must
eat a low fat diet and no more animal products. This means
no more red meat at all or even poultry. No eggs. No milk
or dairy products even the low-fat and no-fat varieties
(milk products contain lactose and all adults are allergic
to lactose) You can eat 10 per cent low-fat seafood, but
stay away from high fat fish such as salmon, tuna, swordfish,
catfish, shark, mackerel, herring, etc. Cod, scallops, crab,
shrimp, sole, flounder and others are good choices. Minimal
vegetable oil and no more avocados. If the idea of giving
up animal foods and fats is too much for you then go ahead
and die of cirrhosis or liver cancer.
can you eat? Whole grains, beans, vegetables, salads
(low fat dressings), and local fruits (better than tropical
fruits). You will be on a low fat, low protein, high complex
carbohydrate, high fiber, low calorie diet, but you will
not be hungry at all. Eat as little as possible by eating
foods high in nutrition but low in calories as mentioned
above. Fast one day a week on water from dinner to dinner
to give your liver a rest. Fast two days a month, if you
can, to give your liver a bigger rest. At first you may
experience side effects from fasting due to poisons being
eliminated; these will stop. If you really want to get well
quickly find a health resort and go for a one week water
fast and you'll experiences miracles.
about supplements? CoQ10 200 mg for a year and then
100 mg maintenance.NAC 600 mg a day has good research behind
it for liver infection. Beta-sitosterol 300 mg a day. Take
Total Minerals to get the 13 minerals you need (since
no one claimed the $1,000 for finding a better mineral supplement).
Flax oil 1 gram a day and keep this refrigerated. Soy isoflavones
40 mg a day. L-glutamine 1 gram in the AM and 1 gram in
the PM (this will temporarily spike your growth hormone
levels as well). Quercitin 250 mg is a great antioxidant.
Curcumin 500 mg is another powerful antioxidant. Vitamin
D 800 IU a day. Vitamin E 400 IU a day. Acidophilus 3 billion
units and keep this refrigerated. FOS 750 mg a day or even
twice a day. Beta glucan 400 mg for a year and then 200
mg maintenance. DIM 200 mg a day. Milk thistle two capsules
a day of a good brand, but only for six months and then
stop as it will no longer be effective. Do NOT take
any Chinese, Ayurvedic or other "magical" liver formulas
or supplements as you can actually get worse. An herb that
will save my life could make you sick and vice versa. It
would be nice to recommend golden seal root, Oregon grape
root, barberry, Fringe tree and other traditional liver
tonics but this would be guesswork. What about hormones?
If you are over 40 be sure to take 3 mg of melatonin at
night only. You can test your melatonin with saliva at 3:00
AM after using this for a few months. Take 50 mg of pregnenolone
daily for men, but women should only take this about 4 times
a week. You can now test your pregnenolone levels with saliva.
Use transdermal progesterone cream both men and women (men
only need an eighth teaspoon). Do NOT take DHEA or
testosterone without testing. Take a saliva or blood test
and supplement only if you are low. Yes, women need healthy
testosterone levels, but not high levels. Androstenedione
50 mg (men) or 3% natural testosterone cream (1% women)
will raise your levels of testosterone safely. Tribulus
and other supplements are useless frauds. You can now test
your T3 and T4 thyroid hormones with a saliva kit and you
must treat these SEPARATELY. If you are low only in T4 take
only the T4. If you are low only in the T3 take only the
T3. Fortunately the prescription thyroid hormones are bioidentical
and have no side effects when used in the proper amounts.
You probably can't afford $4,000 a year for prescription
growth hormone and ALL the growth hormone supplements you
see advertised are FRAUDS! They are all useless- all of
them. The only way to raise your GH is injecting 30 IU of
real rhGH every month. I like the glucose tolerance test
to see if your insulin in working well. The blood sugar
tests do NOT tell you if you have insulin resistance which
is another Western epidemic.
get as far away from the doctors and their toxic interferon
as you can. DIET IS EVERYTHING, supplements and
hormones are very powerful when you are eating well, fasting
is the most powerful healing method known to man. Exercise
is also important. as this keeps the blood flowing thru
the liver so it can heal better. Taking a half hour walk
a day will do it. Lose weight if you need to and lower your
cholesterol until you get it down to the 150 level (even
genetically high cholesterol can be kept down under 200
very easily). The doctors can't help you after you are
diagnosed. You must treat yourself and you must do this
with diet and lfiestyle more than anything else.
