WORLD HEPATITIS DAY

WORLD HEPATITIS DAY

by Ola Mazurkiewicz Dip NT, mNTOI

The 28th of July is Word Hepatitis Day. Hepatitis is truly a vicious devil. It is a virus that spreads and reproduces primarily in the liver like a parasite.

When attacked, hepatitis may go dormant and hide itself in other parts of the body like herpes, chicken pox, and H.I.V. do. It may strike again later, when a victim’s immune system is weak enough for it to overrun the body unopposed. The condition can be self-limiting or can progress to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer. Hepatitis viruses are the most common cause of hepatitis in the world but other infections, toxic substances (e.g. alcohol, certain drugs), and autoimmune diseases can also cause hepatitis.hepatis symptomsThere are 5 main hepatitis viruses, referred to as types A, B, C, D and E. These 5 types are of greatest concern because of the burden of illness and death they cause and the potential for outbreaks and epidemic spread. Of all the hepatitis variants, the “C” version is the worst, and it is officially considered to be incurable (Shiu-Wan-Chan 2014)

Other versions, such as hepatitis A and B will be eliminated by an immune system in time without intervention, so long as the patient takes reasonably good care of himself (Yongjun Tian, et all 2016; Wynn, et all 2015)

Immunological factors in combination with viral load defines the severity of the fulminant hepatitis http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3117845/  Namely that the patient’s overall immune system must be greatly strengthened, so that the virus can be essentially driven into hibernation. This is not yet curing it, but it is an excellent beginning to true recovery.

These supplements are not likely to enact a cure, but they will provide a body with the initial support that it needs to take the attack to the next level. These items are anti-inflammatory, they will boost the immune system and support the liver. Please take those under a supervision of Nutritional Therapist.

Successful treatment means mixing an effective antiviral with another agent that causes extreme penetration into the cells where hepatitis hides, to really devastate it. The most powerful general purpose anti-pathogen that alternative medicine has is colloidal silver (Kwan Yeol Yang, et all 2013) .

Colloidal silver typically helps temporarily because all of the symptoms subside as the infection hibernates, and then the hepatitis later returns when the coast is clear. Colloidal silver literally could provide us with the silver bullet that we need, but it alone is ineffective because it lacks enough penetrating power to saturate where the hepatitis hides. The answer to obtaining that penetration is chlorophyll. It is the green compound that is made by plants which is used by the human body to pull the minerals from vegetables directly into the cells. One of those trace minerals inside organic vegetables is silver (Lamontagene, et all 2013)

Many substances aggravate the disease while simultaneously weakening the immune system and the victims of hepatitis should avoid them. This list is quite restrictive, but the restrictions do not need to be permanent. Hence that all pharmaceuticals, are foreign substances, stress the kidneys, spleen, and liver.

The hepatitis vaccine can prevent infection with the virus. Along with that we should make sure to eat antiinflamotory diet and exercise to strengthen the immune system, also to protect the liver by avoidance of toxic substances and consumption of liver supporting foods.
