Blessings Community!

Unfortunately to date, herbal/complimentary/alternative medicine does not address the virus. If you sit back and think about it, if they did, none of us would participate in other methods.

Herbal remedies might address some of the inflammation associated with HCV, and possibly reduce some of the scarring, or fibrosis of the liver.

If you intend to rid yourself of the virus, the drugs interferon and ribavirin are required.
