Herbal Medicines Offer Hope for Combating Hepatitis C

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.

About the Author
Stephen Harrod Buhner is an Earth poet and the award-winning author of ten books on nature, indigenous cultures, the environment, and herbal medicine. He comes from a long line of healers including Leroy Burney, Surgeon General of the United States under Eisenhower and Kennedy, and Elizabeth Lusterheide, a midwife and herbalist who worked in rural Indiana in the early nineteenth century. The greatest influence on his work, however, has been his great-grandfather C.G. Harrod who primarily used botanical medicines, also in rural Indiana, when he began his work as a physician in 1911.

Stephen's work has appeared or been profiled in publications throughout North America and Europe including "Common Boundary", "Apotheosis", "Shaman's Drum", "The New York Times", CNN, and Good Morning America. www.gaianstudies.org
