More than 500 million people worldwide carry the deadly hepatitis C virus (HCV), and hepatitis C poses a public health crisis far greater than the AIDS epidemic. This deadly disease, which can go undetected for years, eventually attacks the liver, causing cirrhosis, cancer, and even liver failure. Conventional medical treatments for hepatitis C have limited effectiveness. In Herbs for Hepatitis C and the Liver, Stephen Buhner examines the most recent research on how hepatitis C affects the body. He offers important information, practical guidance, and hope. This book includes:
* Clear descriptions of the common medical tests and treatments for hepatitis C -- what they mean and how effective they are.
* A guide to knowing and using the top herbal medicines that work to protect the liver and stregthen the immune system.
* A protocol for cleansing and strengthening the body with a combination of diet, herbs, and lifestyle changes.
