I think you should get tested for the status of your disease. I really doubt if herbal medicines can cure hepatitis B completely. Most of the cases of hepatitis B cure spontaneously and may not require treatment. A repeat test after 6 months may help in detecting whether you have cleared the virus or if the infection is persisting. Antiviral drugs are prescribed by a doctor in few cases where infection is most likely to progress to active hepatitis or cirrhosis. The decision to start treatment depends on liver function tests, HBV DNA tests, and liver biopsy results along with a complete history and physical examination .See a hepatologist for more queries and concerns. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
Cure is not tenofovir plus interferon. It is a long cure. Cure is Rep9 plus interferon or zadaxin. 7-12 weeks it takes that is what being reported.
Taking nucs is dangerous for a long time over a period of one year. I can attest to that. And I am sure you can too. That lymphodistropy - muscle loss you have reported is exactly what happens on nucs after years of taking them.
So we really need to stop talking about nucs. group of drugs that was developed to slow down cancer. Is not what we need that are them self carcinogenic.
The focus of this forum should be release new drugs now.
Stil on trial. Need mass trial for it to be approved. Still a long way to go. Hopefully future trial will be brilliant. We have a good percentage cure for Hep C, surely Hep B must be coming soon, fingers crossed.
If you came here to share iinfo on herbs you take please post what you take and how much as well as your labs results. And we want to see several of these to see the dynamics of your progress. That is how you help people.
Dont argue with stefan here. He is one of the most knowledgeble patient-doctors that reallly trully helps people.
But if you believe in herbs that they work which many of us think as well please show your labs in a separate thread.
don't be afraid of hbv people, we are outcasts anyway. Living a miserable life, for the most part. Victimized by big-pharma conspiracy and eugenics health insurance programs in some countries.
So if you have something to share please please post without any drama.
regarding herbs, why people are suspicious of them is because people come to forums such as these and claim miracle cures without any proof or medical records..
You have to understand that HBV progression depends on persons immune system function. Some people do great without meds, some don't at all. Why that is they are not looking into this, or not telling us.
But regarding herbs and other alternative treatments that are reported to work, people like to hear about and see at least some documented proof..
If you take Chanca Piedra show us your base line tests, followed by more tests, blood DNA and liver enzymes are ok. So that we can try it and compare results.. That is how one contributes.
You have a magic tea from Africa, then tell us what you take exactly at least...
Herbal treatments are not real treatments and do nothing. Stef2011 is correct, you can get TDF for less than $100/month - I've purchased before. Company that makes the drug is called Cipla and they're one of the biggest manufacturers in India. Look on pharmacychecker.com for up to date pricing.
HBsAg secretion into the culture media is obteined by soooo many drugs even old cheap generics approved drugs......in vivo is another universe and what works in culture doesnt work in vivo most of the time.unless a substance is used in vivo on humans and for long time it is scam
in vivo, on human trials and for long time:
the only thing to block hbsag secretion on small human trials is rep9ac by replicor and the only thing to block infection of liver cells by hbv is myrcludex which will be soon available
since we have scum guy very often with herbs from africa and philippines this forum is not to discuss herbs but hbv drugs.
we open a channel for herbals and other treatments, i have no idea if still open since most posters were scamers with little follow up

I agree with veteranb. If tenofovir plus interferon add is "the cure" for hbv, then why do most people on here that try both have failed to cure? I've also lost so much muscle mass. I hope I'm wrong but looks like my cpk is permanently high.
Yes I read plenty. Why ain't you "fully cured" from hbv if TDF and interferon is the "cure"? I'm not talking about responded. I'm talking about fully cured. Why are doctors working hard to find an actual cure if tdf/interferon is the answer? I've checked post from several years back. So many members here have also said they failed to cure on the tdf/interferon combo? I guess they were just a non responder huh, Dr. Steff?
