It has been a while since you have responded to my emails.
I am sure you must have a ton of them to respond
to. I wanted to keep you updated
about my visit to the Hep-c class at Kaiser which I attended
The specialist recited some stuff about hep-c that I
had already read in many books about this disease.
He left out some really important stuff like diet. When
I brought up that issue he simply says, well your diet
should always be a good diet without too much of anything
and that one should not do anything special. He
also said that Cafeine is fine and if one is drinking
it they don't have to cut it back, as a matter of fact
he pointed out to a study within Kaiser research that
indicates that cafeine inhibits growth of hep-c virus.
There were other things he said that conflicted
with stuff I have read in these books. He said that
no studies show that natural remedies work but some studies
show that milk thistle may also inhibit the growth of
hep-c virus and that it is safe to take.
The important thing was that he believes that it can
be cured even though one of the attendees pointed out
to him that the Kaiser health book clearly states that
there is no cure. The good doctor said that each
one of us should consider the interferon therapy and make
an appointment with him to talk about it.
