Natural Treatments for Hep B?

Hi all,

I am not undergoing any treatment (I am precore) inactive though, at the moment.  I wanted to know if anyone has tried any special natural treatments such as homeopathy or chinese herbal medicine to help their body fight this disease.  After reading the book, "Natural Cures by Kevin Trudeau" it's hard not to believe there is a natural cure out there for all of our diseases but off course the FDA doesn't want us to know about them b/c it's all about money.  In the end, the patients lose unforunately.  I believe there is a time and place for drugs and surgery especially if it's something fatal.  

I wanted to know if anyone here has tried and had success with any natural treatments.

Thanks in advance

btw cally, Inteferon is natural. They are just proteins the body makes on its own for the immune system.

You are absolutely right. The FDA is evil. I live in Asia the past 10 yrs and we don't have to listen to those fools. That is why 99% of the people out here prefer Herbal remedies.

Now if I could just figure out why they have the highest HepB rate in the world and most deaths by liver cancer my theory would sooooooo fall into place.

maybe do some searching for herbals, supplementation that could potentially help, but not cure...they are laughing with you, not at you...hope youre well...

Found this on the gastro site here, took off the names and I figure I'm not disparaging anyone, thought some could find this helpful...I swear by aloe vera juice, just cleared up a tummy ache for me yesterday...along with keeping me regular...

I've had IBS for years now. I had the lap nissan surgery several months ago, and although it 100% cured the GERD problems, it seemed to worsen my IBS.
I've been travelling for the past few months and the IBS got so bad that I went to see a Naturopathic doctor.
I have been taking three tablespoons of Aloe Vera juice twice a day for three weeks now, and could not have imagined better relief.
Has anyone else tried Aloe Vera Juice, did you experience any relief?
I have been to so many doctors about my IBS, and was told so many times that I had one of the worst cases they had seen. (you could always feel my colon is spasm)
I'd recommend Aloe Vera Juice to anyone, I was completly sceptical, as nothing else has ever worked before. There is tons of documentation on the internet with IBS sufferers never having problems again.

i there. I too tried Aloe Vera juice 4 years ago and was amazed with the results. I had chronic gastro problems for 4 weeks and they cured a few weeks after taking the juice.

thanks in advance -  

.My husband has had Chrons for years and until recently he was told it was IBS. I highly reccomend Aloe Vera Juice. If you can get ahold of Georges Aloe water its the best. Tastes like sweet water. It works great for my husband. I also use it for heartburn and upset stomachs. Don't suffer with the others if you can get ahold of Georges. There is not bitter aftertaste and I promise you will never go back to other brands once using it. No I do not sell it I just believe its the best.

As far as the diareah I suggest using caltrate. Its a brand of calcium. Start with one a day and work your way up to no more than 12oomg per day. Without this my husband could not control the diareah. Also start taking acidopholis and bifodolfolis. You can usually find them in a pill together. Your body is washing away these wonderful bateria and you really need them. Try these and see how much it changes things. My husband was amazed. I hope theey help you also.

----- Thanks so much ----. I've been taking calcium but in a tablet form so it's likely not being digested. I will also look for your recommended brand of Aloe Vera juice and stick with my acidolphilis (Latero Flora - incredible stuff).

sorry for the confusion, but was just trying to lighten up some of the posts you had already received...sometimes when people say things like you did on a board where there are all kinds of people on very strong, sometimes unmerciful drugs for prolonged periods of time- some people have treated for many months, multiple times- it hits them wrong when a person comes on here and says that herbs, etc will CURE hepatitits....I can see their point if you look at it from their point of view...they've been through the wars with blasting cannons, and you came on here talking about winning with a sling-shot type of deal....so they might not always be as polite as they should be...

So no, I don't think herbs, supplementation can CURE Hepatitis in the vast majority of cases...but I do think it can help with inflammation (in some people), thereby helping with ancillary problems, symptoms, etc...They certainly have with me, I can tell a difference off them then on them...and that is what I was telling you to look into...(though a lot of people here won't even give me that, and they are entitled to their opinion, as I am mine)

If I remember, you were talking about Hep B, most people are dealing with Hep C here, and I sure dont know much about Hep B....hope I made myself more clear...be well...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  I've been chronic HepB sAg+ for alomst 14 years.  my latest test had my Doc calling me to say it came back NEG!!!.  All the other stuff they test for also looking good.
When I first tested for Hep I did the Milk Thistle and such.  my liver functions recovered rather quickly though not completely.  Hence, Chronic.
But, in regard to IBS and Chrones, my grandmother suffered for several years and was finally diagnosed with celiac disease (sprue). Apparently if she were to eat wheat glutens she would have bowel troubles for days.  I also used to have digestive problems (2 duodenal ulcers,reflux).  aloe and keifer all that was good but, a nutritionist told me about food combining. And eating papaya- it aids in digestion.  I more or less follow a way of eating found in the book, "Fit for Life."
Sorry if this was far off the forum,(it's my 1st posting ever) I was looking for info about my recent Hep test results.

So is using Milk Thistle good for you if you have hep b.  i use to take it when I worked out.  I wouldn't mind taking it again.  Is there any other natural things we should be taking.

206581_tn?1193720312
First, My HepB DNA test came back Neg!!!.  My doc was so excited she called me from her private number at 8 am a couple weeks ago to tell me.  I finally built an immunity.  I know I one of the lucky ones.  
     The Milk Thistle seemed to help speed my liver functions and the tests showed to a normal range rather quickly.  My Doc at the time mentioned how quickly my numbers went to normal.  At the time I was first diagnosed, I kinda left most dairy and heavy meat proteins out of my diet.  That made digestion and nutients easier to absorb since my liver was running sluggish.  The only problem with that, I became borderline anemic.  So, once a week I ate a really choice piece of red meat.  within a couple weeks my energy was back and i just got on with life.  I continued being tested every 6 months, only drank (red wine less than once a week or an occasional beer) ate lots of fruit and vegies.
I wish and hope science finds a cure, but until then, I hope and pray for the best for everyone who suffers with this ailment.

the doubleblinds you can read about on NIH or pubmed showed no changes with milk thistle..it seems to be harmless however, so the doc don't care if you try it.


BUT and this is a big but...I've used herbs for 30 years, and think there are times for and not for these remedies. Herbs are just drugs, in unrefined states that have benefits and risk as do purified Rx's.

the big BUTTTTTTT here is this:
there are numerous types of liver viruses and they are labeled as Hepatitis when they are all very different.

it's like comparing how you got over a mild cold, to say how you got over spinal meningitis. One size does not fit all, it was really kind of stupid of medicine to label every liver virus with the same word because it implies similar degrees of severity to all but the docs who know what the genotypes really mean..

do we label every flower the same? No. we may label each genous...trouble is...a daisy at 2 feet is not a giant sunflower now is it. We tend to loose the ability to see what we have with the current typing system, just my opinion.

If we label every cold for instance, as pneumonia, doesn't that rather defeat the point of recognizing the mild from the life threatening forms rhinovirus can take????

However you cleared, just be glad you did, and congratulations. Now be careful with that liver from now on, and be sure and keep a check on things.

both are useless for hbv, milk t. can help those with severe cirrhosis/fibrosis f3 while useless for the others, milk t. interferes with antivirals so it must not be used or at least it is better to wait for hbvdna und when taking with antivirals

blood cannot be donated once infected by hbv wherter you clear it or cronic (chronic) because blood will always be infectious

This is very inspiring. I hope health professionals will treat their patients with caution specially when telling someone had Hep B  and a carrier. i hope this site will serve as an information for everyone's treatments so that anyone with this condition will have more hope to live a normal life.

I was diagnose with trace Hep B 10 years ago, went for check last week and was told is now chronic Hep B. I know all my contact routes. Had been a nurse 25years ago worked and used sterelised needles on our selves and then went to study virology right up to master level. as I was about to start a PHd research on virology I now went for check up and was told I had traces of Hep B because I never took the vaccine.
I am waiting to see a hepathologist and cannt wait so I want to start this treatment. I have ordered for milk thistle and want to combine it with another immune boosting Chinese mushroom. I have the hope and believe that it will help me. I am not giving up and dont want to die young please advise.

5 years before i was diagnosed with H hepatitis B but DNA-(PCR Qualitative) was negative. now it is back with more intensity and this time DNA-(PCR Qualitative) has shown with detective results. my liver functions r very close to normal values, though little disturbed.
i am almost working on normal routine(though my work dont include lots of physical activities)
kindly suggest me any herbal or natural remedy to cure. i dont want to be on elopethic medications as they r long term and full with other complications.
kindly post here a healthy diet plan or food items which help to improve my health conditions, so that there will be a full stop to further complications bcoz of this viral.
i am thankful to u all.

Hi everyone,
im vince and from west Africa Ghana, i know what u lot r going through with this disturbing virus. i wanted to get immunized that was when i found out that i have HBV so i did HBv profile test to know how much the disease has spread and mine is HBVagt (HBV Agant) which means its the earliest stage of the disease. Since am a science student, am not going to bore u with all science big words so i'll go straight to the point.
you should know this virus behaves like HIV virus, it'll fight ur immune system till it gives up on the virus to spread. Some of u r saying milk thistle helps, its true but alone cannot cure it. u should also know that viruses cannot be cured within man unless ur immune system fights it for u, the thymus gland (which is located
within the upper chest) is large  in  infants  but  atrophies  as we grow
old, "The  thymus  gland has always been  responsible of controlling the immune system, Which i've also red an article this Doctor who used Thymus tissue extract supplement, Multivitamins supplement and plus 25,000 units beta carotene to Boost the immune system to fight and cured his Heb B. First pls do the HBV profile test to know if its chronic or not. some people's might be carriers it means u were born with it, its not infectious and if its chronic these are the signs:
        SYMPTOM            % OF PATIENTS
        Dark Urine ........................ 94
        Fatigue ........................... 91
        Loss Of Appetite .................. 90
        Nausea ............................ 87
        Fever ............................. 76
        Headache .......................... 70
        Abdominal Discomfort .............. 65
        Light Stools ...................... 52
        Muscle Pain ....................... 52
        Drowsiness ........................ 49
        Irritability ...................... 43
       Diarrhea .......................... 25
        Joint Pain ........................ 21
i'm on Himalaya (Liv.52) medication now and am looking forward to buy these drugs which i've mentioned and it has been difficult to get it now cos u can only get those in US and other European countries. if anyone come across these drugs pls this is mine address ***@**** send me the link or let me know how i can get it, i also need them. thanks, hope this helps.

pls dont post false info, hbv is benigne for most carriers and has no symptoms, very very few get symptoms when acute and cleared in few months.chronic carriers have no symptoms from hbv at all and fatigue is due to immune system failure to clear hbv not by hbv itself, hbv itself makes no damage

please explain what are the interactions of milk thistle and antivirals? I have heard it dilutes them.

Avatar_m_tn
As for herbal treatments. There seem to be reports on chanca piedra and mayetake (grifola) that acts on hbv reportedly. But yet there is no data available. Meaning actual.blood tests as proof.

This is  something you would expect from the chinese and indian gurus to post and share.

interactions of milk thistle and antivirals?

i dont think there is any study to prove this, HR (hepatitis researcher) posted in the past to avoid milk th. just for extra security when hbvdna is detactable and start it when und

i ve used it all along and had no problems and still using it since it is a component of heptech pills

well my cirrhosis regressed in 1.5years, too fast for antiviral

it was due to etv+heptech+ diet changes with antioxidants and antifibrotic food too
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
That is great news, thanks for sharing.

I wonder how many doctors that do research pay attention to this forum. And particularly endeavors you have taken to fight HBV. And contribute to the HepB cure.

I believe too based on my own internet research that the regiment you are doing is the best to treat the disease until cure comes. Not just antivirals but a complete body support solution with antioxidants.

I will look into Heptech. Because they are here in LA also.

My problem is to be able to find a doctor that is doing a real research and practicing it with HBV here in states.

Doing product testing for drug companies (so called clinical trials) is not really research. Gilead could have done better on their own, for far less cost. By just giving this medication to volunteers like me without any conditions. To speed up the testing process.

It is not just in the US this needs to be done, but world wide. Introduction of cures for deadly viruses and cancers and clinical trials should be done on a rapid schedule. With a larger pool of people.

hello, im using herbal medicine now..  im taking this med for 4 months right now and i can say its very effective.. i tried medicine given by my western doctor by its not effective so i decided to try herbal medicine..  last april 2012 i have jaundice and after taking herbal medicine in one month i was okay.. and feel better.. look at my posted pic in my profile.. hehee
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
You are wrong. Based on the tests you have shown your HepB is resent infection. Basically within six months from May 2012. Your HepB core Igm was weakly reactive..

So your western doctor have missed acute HepB.. (don't worry you are not alone in America they missed mine too)

So your jaundice probably has resolved as your immune system have gotten some control over the virus.

In order to test the effectiveness of  herbs one must do base line blood tests before and after starting treatment to see.. if it works..

last may this year when i found out about me being infected with HBV,and the doctor certified that i am a chronic carrier and you said all that no symptoms to chronic patients,but why to me for almost 4 months that i am aware of it,i almost experienced all the symptoms,is it possible that I am in acute infection only?I'm hoping though..

Avatar_m_tn
anybody here takes milk thistle but not for hbv because it has no effects on hbv and we have seen no effect, we take it for liver support only

be aware there are many spamers from philippines and africa that appear from time to time trying to sell herbs that have no effect on hbv.all adults clear hbv by 6-12months by immune system while all chronic carriers are infected from birth and can clear only by tenofovir or entecavir for long time and then peginterferon add on, time needed 5 years minimum
