I meant to say I may use Alinia to seroconvert the s-antigen afterwards.  I'll be watching how stefano and friends do.

Try joining this group is you want info on vitamins and supplements.  They're very active in collecting a database of medical reports using supplements, and their main weapon against hepatitis is Low Dose Naltrexone (or LDN, a very cheap FDA approved drug originally designed to help drug addicts).  The founder seroconverted the e-antigen in her daughter using it, and has been sending information to researchers at Penn State.  

A few of the medhelp guys also are on LDN with cautiously optimistic results.  It works differently than the antivirals or Alinia, but seems to help.  You can check out the database and judge for yourself.  I'm working on the seroconverting the e-antigen using LDN, and may plant to use Alinia to seroconvert the a-antigen afterwards.

Echinacea, Milk thistle extract, white grape seed extract, most vitamins (including those you already mentioned) are normally just fine, however consult with your doctor about immune system boosters/ toxin cleansers just in case.
Also if you KNOW a person who works in or owns a health food and supplement store talk with them.  If you DON'T know them personally, get what information they give you, then check that with your physician. Dietary supplements ca be VERY costly and absolutely useless to your situation at the same time. Caveat Emptor!
