A word before my translation and summary: I read below in the Chinese Hep B site. I have never tried it. In the US, I probably could not catch enough cockroaches even if I wanted to! Based on the conversations on the site, I feel the author was relating his real experience which is why the translation. Cockroaches have been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. When time permits I will post some translation summaries of it as medicine.
"I was once a HBsAg(+) HBeAg(+) HBcAB(+) patient with chronic Hep B and jaundice urine. Because of this condition, I was forced to stay home from my university for one year (all students must have normal liver function test results). I knew all the pains and sufferings of an HBVer. During my year at home I visited many doctors to try to cure my disease to no avail. Finally my father obtained a private prescription from a friend and I tried as a last resort, not really believing it would work. Yet all my HBsAg, HBeAg and HBcAB turned negative.
Here is the private prescription: Catch live cockroaches (in the kitchens of village homes or houses with poor hygiene there should be plenty of them. My home was in the countryside, so it was quite easy to catch them), scald them to death in an iron wok, eat about ten of them each day, when and how many to eat them is not very strict. Because I caught them at home, sometimes more, sometimes less, I usually caught them at night because they did not come out in the daytime. One to two weeks after I started the treatment, my urine became clear. I so ate for about 3 or 4 months. Towards the end of the 4 months I wasn't able to catch 10 cockroaches each day because my cockroaches were from our kitchen and towards the end I could not catch enough or not at all. Then I had a lab test but nothing turned negative. Then one or two years later, when I wanted to find out how bad my Hep B was, I found out I was cured. During the one or two years I did not take any other medications.
Even though the thought of eating cockroaches may be nauseating, it is really not that bad. My hometown is in the countryside of Hunan Province and my cockroaches were caught in our kitchen (In the countryside the hygiene was not very good.) It really was not that horrible to eat cockroaches: Don't chew on it, just put the whole cockroach in the back of mouth as back as possible and swallow with water. There is no taste at all.
When my Hep B was cured, my school doctor could not believe it was true. She had my blood tested again by her order, the result was negative. She still did not believe the result and sent me to the best hospital in the city for testing again. The result was still negative and when I gave her the lab result, she kept saying,"What a miracle!" Still doubts were all over her face: Countryside prescription? Cockroaches?
Because my HBsAB was still negative, I am going through the vaccination series, just done with the second shot.
I know the regular treatment in the hospital has very low cure result and it is very expensive. But I also know this private prescription lack scientific proof. I know I was cured by it. I do not sell any drugs and I am not a doctor so I cannot answer many questions. Maybe when you have no other treatments available you can try this as a last resort.
Summary: Most people hate cockroaches, but since ancient times they have been used as medicine to cure diseases. In ancient prescriptions, it was used to help wounds to stop bleeding and heal; it is known to hinder growth of S-180 cancerous cells; it has the function of detoxification; it cures abdominal mass accumulation, infantile malnutrition, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, pyogenic infections and insect and snake bites.
Are we still nauseated? Are we still “pharmaceuticals， here I come”?
At least they are God-made existing in nature, not chemical concoctions from a lab. Fundamentally, if we put ourselves in the shoes of fellow HBVers who know that chemicals don’t cure only control, that they may never stop taking the chemicals, that the threat of resistance is very real, that chemicals all have the side-effects of toxification, a direct stab at the liver, that even if they are willing to swallow everything so far they do not have the sky-high price for the antivirals, then the sensation may not be that nauseating and the pharmaceuticals may not be that inviting.
Yes, "evidence" aside, I am still not going to eat a cockroach. I am still going to take antivirals when my time comes. I'm not going to stop anyone else from indulging in this cure. Let us know how it goes.
I believe when one takes good care of one's liver in terms of nutrition, healthy living style, toxin avoidance and detoxification, the time for antivirals will never need to come.
Through this community in the past year or so there are at least a dozen fellow patients complaining they cannot afford Hep B treatment because of cost. Well, here is a treatment that does not cause a cent, penny, fen, or whatever the smallest unit of the rest of the world's currencies, that does not just control but cures and that at least has worked on a Chinese college student. Imagine, if all the dozen fellow patients from different corners of the world use this treatment and report their results here, don't we patients have a chance to find a proven cure ourselves? Do you think all the dozen patients will try the treatment? Of course not! Because not everyone wants the cure with the same degree of eagerness. Everyone may have the same degree of eagerness outside in words, but inside at heart? Only actions show.
Sometimes money and fame are actually obstacles to cure: There was this famous Chinese movie star to whom this simple treatment was easily accessible. Money a problem? What a joke! Fame a problem? A huge problem: "What？！ Me a well-known movie star on cockroaches?! What about my reputation?! How nauseating!!" Instead, he went though HBeAg(+)->HBeAg(-)->fibrosis->cirrhosis->ascites->HCC->liver transplantation 1->liver transplantation 2->you know the result.
you guys ar too cruel... hahahaha.. and obviously watch too much TV..
its a disguesting idea to eat cockroaches i must agree...heck, everyone agrees but i bet all of you if there was a proven scientific research that agrees with the cockewwwwwwroach eating then 9 out of 10 people will jump on it..
hmmm, oh yes i am still saying hell no for roaches....
Doubter: Are you playing a vicious joke? Don’t lose your morale. Already we HBVers are so miserable! My brother is also an HBVer. He has lost interest in life altogether. Please tell us the truth, speak with your conscience.
Auther: I am well educated. I am not so low as to trick people with this sharing. HBV is hurting so many people so. I myself was forced to stay home from school for 1 year. Maybe this prescription is not scientifically proven yet. I know at least two people cured by it. One is myself, the other is my father’s friend’s relative. I share it so that if this is your last resort, you can give it a try. Maybe there is a miracle.
