I am currently
reading your book. Just picked it up this afternoon and have
read many sections but have not yet completed it.
As I am
reading it, a question that I have had for all the years since
diagnosis of Hep C keeps popping into my thoughts. With all
the contact you have with Hep C sufferers, have you ever experienced
anyone who's symptoms include SEVERE ITCHING?
been itching for 8 years. An itch which is driving me insane!!
I have been to many, many MD's looking for a cause and of
course a cure. Not a single doctor has attached it to my Hep
C even though I do. I continue to look for additional ways
to cleanse my system, my liver, my blood, my lymphatic fluids,
and on and on.... I set out today to discover more about water
fasts in an effort to detox my system and came across your
a) help me attach my itching to my hepatitis, and b) suggest
what steps in your program would be most likely to bring me
some relief from that symptom?
I am not
able to think about anything else when the itching begins,
not to mention speak, wear public appropriate clothing, sit
still, stop scratching, sleep or even lie down, etc when it
is in high form which is sometimes constant, sometimes several
hours a day, usually in my legs but can affect all other parts
of my body.
told my father that this is so insane, it could drive a person
to take his/her life.
your experience and contact with other hep c sufferers taught
you that might help me hang on and more importantly, find
relief most quickly? Please help!
several people who complain about severe itching and yes,
it is a symptom in about 15 % of hep c suffers. I have not
had one as bad as yours.
I do not
completely understand the process but as I understand it,
there is a connection with bile flow, sunlight and some chemical
in the sun, drink lots of herbal aloe, not the real aloe.
Take 2 artichoke extract capsules 2 times a day. If the problem
gets worse, stop the artichoke extract. It takes the whole
leaf aloe to help this severe of a problem. Get more sunlight,
everyday at least one hour or more and let me know if this
person that I have told this to has had the itching go away.
