10/16/2012: Denise from Seattle, Wa: "Can Ted or Bill or anyone give me an answer. I have hepatitis c and polyneuropathy. Can I put DMSO OVER my liver area and get results? I was also considering putting licorice extract on my liver area THEN put DMSO on it... It will drive the licorice into my liver... Can this be done without any ramafications?
Also, can I take high dose B-3 without problems to my liver? I'ver read some encouring things by Bill but am hesitant to take a high dose?
Thank you. Best health to all.."
05/13/2012: Jimmy from Huntsville, Texas: "I have a friend with hep c. The suggestion of an aspirin, lysine and zinc 4xdaily. Is this to be taken within a 55 minute period 4x daily and what dosage for each ingredient. I am a naturopath and hepc is a tough nut to crack and I am open to anything that can benefit others. Also there was mention of bloodroot for hep c."
04/28/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa: "Dear dazedconfused, There is what is called the: STANDARD LIVER PANEL series of tests and I am trying to find out how much these tests cost. They don`t seem to cost all that much [ $50.00 or less ] from what I am reading. But it is not all that clear to me. It depends on different things, such as where you live and who does the testing. I am looking in to it. Hopefully there are ways of avoiding having to have a doctor order them because that may cost more than the tests themselves.
I am determined to do what I can to see your husband get well. You mentioned drinking water. I would strongly recommend drinking only distilled water. This drinking adequate good quality water alone can go a long ways in helping him. That you can do immediately. I also recommend taking a regular size B-COMPLEX vitamin pill about every other day. Doing those things will at least not harm him and should help.
Now, I am a member of the: Life Extension forum and you can send me PM`s there. This way you can stay in close contact with me in a way that is NOT posted in a public forum. Go here to join that forum and I am: oscar2u in this forum: http://ask.lef.org/Default.aspx
I very much believe this BHT treatment is the REAL DEAL and really does work for hepatitis C.
Is your husband a football like me? That is what the surgeon who operated on me for that gunshot wound told me I was. I asked him: what do you mean I`m a football? He laughed and had a medic cut away the bandage about my abdomen and showed me the line of large sutures from just above my groin to just above my breastbone. See, a football he said. We both laughed because my stomach did look like a football with that long line of large sutures. The fun I had in the Marine Corps never ended until I got out 2 years later. Later, ...Oscar"Replies

04/25/2012: Dazednconfused from Bfe, Ar.: "Read almost every post on this forum concerning ascites, cirrhosis, gall-bladder, and Hep C in the last 2 days, still no scenario even close to the one I am dealing with here. I need some clear and precise info. On the ACV and 35% H2O2 treatment plan. May be too late even, I dk? maybe Ted or Oscar can help?
Scenario goes as follows(sorry if too long): Husband is 51, had gall-bladder removal in 2010, during the surgery it was discovered he had cirrhosis, and almost died in the hospital following the surgery, contracted a Staph infection, then SPB. What a nightmare. Fast foward 2 years. Routine labwork continued to show elevated liver enzymes, the doctor finally decided to get him checked for Hep. C, he is positive, and has genotype 1A; no insurance, and possibly decades worth of damage to his liver due to this disease, and now, no gall bladder! Which as I understand it, puts just that much more stress on his already compromised liver. He was holding his own, barely, when the pitted edema and ascites started a few weeks ago. I have read about the Serrapeptase on this site which has been used successfully(?)for ascites, and would like ANY updates on the peeps who have tried this for themselves or others. Is it a conducive treatment for a compromised liver, 60, 000 units of anything at this point may be too much? Also I would like to know how much of the H2O2 to start off with, and how much ACV to give also, and at what intervals, as I have read here that one counter-acts with the other? I have read so many posts on here and I am just getting myself more confused and am quickly becoming a nervous wreck and discouraged just watching him get sicker and more swollen.
He is NOT to the point of getting 'tapped' yet, and if even he were, like I said, we have no insurance, and no money. Reason number one for doctor not offering ANY kind of treatment plan;more or less, told him to go home and die!!! He did not even schedule him back in 6 months for future bloodwork, just wrote him a script for Aldectone b/c he KNEW it would come to this. So compassionate these doctors are! He gets $200 disability a month, and I am currently unemployed and going stir crazy. Too much time on my hands, all I do is read/research, and worry even more! TMI on the web! What to trust, what not to believe, etc. , is driving me crazy!
I need people and feedback from those who are going through this, or have gone through this, and had a good outcome with treatment plan, or even just managing to stay alive with the least amount of symptoms and are managing thier disease. I have also read and believe a lot about the alkaline water and your body's pH balance, this seems to be the easiest to do, ph test strips give accurate, cheap, and quick results as to the progress being made; and the most conclusive evidence since my own mother who had fatty liver disease is still kicking strong after 12 years and having already been through this treatment, can answer questions I have first hand. However, even sea salt is NOT recommended by ANY AMA docors, and would totally advise AGAINST this option, exspecially for someone with ascites and edema already present; and my husband has been brainwashed by the AMA, and will not even drink the recommended daily amount of water, let alone ingest the sea salt!! But my mother changed her pH to alkaline by using this protocol, which is actually the late Dr. Batmanghelidj protocol from his research on the "Water Cure", and dehydration being the cause of MANY diseases. Has anyone heard of this before? It goes against the grain of traditional medicine, and definately against AMA treatment for ascites and edema, and is way too cheap of a cure for this TRUTH to get around! However, as mentioned, my husband will not even TRY this due to his doctor scaring him with the old sodium myth and it causing edema. I feel the worse that can happen at this point is that he may swell up more? maybe not. I have also read where edema is the body's way of SAVING sodium b/c it IS dehydrated, and edema is an outward manifestation of this.
Anyhow, TMI I know, and I apologize, but if anyone has any positive feedback I would love to hear it. I am not playing doctor here, and would not dream of doing so with someone else's health, my own, yes; however, the doctors have left him on the wayside, and I am just trying to pick up the broken pieces of my life and hopefully ease my husband into the great beyond with the LEAST amount of pain and suffering to all! If this post can help anyone in the future, I feel it will all be worth it! We can only evovle through education and knowledge, and anyone's health is of the UPMOST importance to me. I will give out my email if anyone can/wants to help me personally, just give a shout out. Thank you all, you have been a great help to raise the conscieseness of like minded people who VALUE their health and not BELIEVE everything the conventional doctors would tell you, if they even can. And by some of the posts that I have read here, the docs really don't have a clue about some things. Thanks EC and members."Replies
04/25/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Dazedconfused from Bfe. , AR, This is Oscar. I know nothing about the H2O2 [ hydrogen peroxide ] treatment. I also am not a doctor and do not wish to play doctor, so do not expect that from me.
I am the person who has discussed the BHT [ butylated hydroxytoluene ] treatment. This BHT treatment worked very well for me for hepatitis C and has for many others also. You can read through the thread about the BHT treatment at this forum here: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/BHT.html
There is also this BHT CURES group you may wish to join here that discusses the issues surrounding the use of BHT to treat hepatitis C and also some other viral infections here: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/BHTcures/
Now, I am very sorry to learn of how sick your husband is. Obviously I can`t promise you anything, but then, the same is true for doctors using the conventional treatments.
I can only hope the BHT treatment works as well for your husband as it did for me and many of the others who have tried it if you choose to give it a try. For myself and some of the others the results were very positive in 3 months or less. For me in one month. I went from being very sick with hepatitis C to normal liver function tests in one month and was feeling well and strong.
Now your husband`s condition presents an additional complication because he had his gall bladder removed. But I want you to know that I also have a compromised anatomy when it comes to my liver. Due to a gunshot wound all of my right kidney was removed and most of my liver was destroyed. What was left of my liver was torn from where it is supposed to be and now is where the right kidney used to be. So I also live with a defective anotomy regarding my liver. It is not the same as what your husband has to live with. I wish to give you what hope I can regarding your husband`s much desired recovery.
My recommended treatment at this time:
1. Start out with no more than one 350mg of BHT per day with one half a cup of some fruit juice on an empty stomach. If any adverse reaction is noticed lower that dosage. The most common adverse reaction is a nervous condition very simular to drinking too much coffee. Also some people report stomach discomfort. If that happens include one half a slice of bread at the time the BHT capsule is taken. Start with that and if he tolerates that dosage well ramp the dosage up to one 350mg of capsule of BHT TWICE a day every other day. So that would be one capsule one day and two capsules the next day. If all goes well he can try taking 2 capsules every day. This dosage issue is different for different people. You need to find a dosage he is comfortable with. Most people, even very sick people tolerate the one capsule per day very well.
Now I made the effort to address your questions as best I could and I do ask you to report back into this forum with any results good or bad with the BHT treatment if you choose to give it a try. Without this all important feedback there is no way for the other forum members to know about how well this treatment works or does not work. I am hoping it works very well if you choose to try it....Oscar"
04/27/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Dazednconfused, to invoke a healing response wear a magnetic belt 4-6 hrs daily. Also supplement SAM-e as it is very helpful to the liver as well as many body function. Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are beneficial protein that is NOT metabolized by the liver, therefore increasing recovery prognosis."

04/26/2012: Dazednconfused from Bfe, Ar. replies: "Thank you Oscar, and believe me, I do not expect you or anyone else here to play doctor, sorry if that is what it sounded like to you, but somebody has to do it, and the M. D. 's sure won't without any money, so I will! What does he really have to lose at this point except an excellent testimony after he is well! My husband also had a gunshot wound to his abdomen when he was a teenager, he has at least a 100 stitches and some missing intestines and is very tight all along his stomach/abdominal region, even w/o the added build-up of the ascites. This is the main reason for most of his abdominal discomfort, though I am sure it is uncomfortable for anyone who has to deal with this, sorry. He can barely bend over to tie his shoes, though he has been in a worse case scenario with the gunshot wound, it also was life threatening and he was in a coma for several weeeks. However, this is now the first problem that needs to be addressed, quickly, before the pressure gives him a heart-attack!
I heard B-6 also helps with the distribution of fluids, I dk. for sure, and it sure won't hurt anything to do that. He does not have enough fluid to get 'tapped' yet, and at this rate, he could go on for months like this. The pressure is on ALL of his innards and I can tell it's unbearable at times, and all he can do is lay on the couch with his feet up to reduce the edema in his legs, and ease the pressure he feels around his heart. I have read every post about the BHT. I went to purchase some the other day, no one knew what I was talking about. At any rate, I can order it off the internet? I just wasn't sure if his liver could handle it while in such a weakened state, but you, Oscar, are living proof! I am SO happy for you!
It is hard to get this much needed blood work up done w/o cash or insurance, though we did manage to squeek out one hepatic panel test just the other day. This test showed his liver enzymes are down from this same test last year, but still in the high range, AST-114, ALT-91/.Last year at this time he was in the hospital and they were AST-135, ALT-115, total protein 7.0. The only numbers w/i the correct range now are the 'total protein'@ 7. 4 and Alk. Phos. (?)@ 123. Albumin level way low at 2.9. A CBC would also be nice to have, but impossible at the moment. BTW, he takes Milk Thistle capsules and in tea form, several times a day, and has since his diagnosis 2 years ago, and also drinks about 16oz. of fresh carrot juice a day, and recently I have tried to get him to juice/ingest more greens;spinach, kelp tablets, spirulina, etc. That isn't working so good, and pill form in anything is too expensive, fresh is better and more easily digested too I think.
I will keep you informed Oscar, and will give back some numbers as soon as we can get them. No idea what his viral load is, so we will not know what is working, IF ANYTHING! That is discouraging in itself, but have to keep on truckin'. Thank you very much."
04/26/2012: Care from Surrey, B.c. replies: "3-4 cups hot water(boiled)add
3/4 to 1 tsp of cayenne pepper to hot water
drink as fast as you can, then any pressure and pain should shift relief, then put castor oil packs- oil, garbage bag, hot water bottle-on the liver and or around any remaining pain
You may be left with a bit of pain in the pelvis area but that is easily remedied with fibre and a tblsp 1 or 2 twice a day of olive oil.
This is a fair bit of oil so don't do for to many consecutive days
drop down to 1-2 tsp a day (olive oil)
This will not cure you but it will alleviate the pressure that builds up in the liver.
You can overdo cayenne on the liver so save this for the unbearable moments. Cayenne is good at getting rid of blockages so if you over due the oil take some cayenne pepper."
04/28/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Dazedconfused from Bfe, Ar: BHT is only available through the mail or internet. I buy mine from Vitamin Research Products in the 350mg capsules. There are other online retailers.
Also: I am not sure where Bfe, Ar is. Is this in the USA? One of the reasons I ask is because it seems to me very likely he should be eligible for both:
1. Social Security Disability and
if he is a USA citizen. You people need whatever help you can get. If he is an American citizen please do contact your nearest social security office to learn about this. As sick as he is he should be eligible. You do NOT need a lawyer to apply for these benefits and I strongly recommend you filing the paper work yourselves. The people at the SS office will answer any questions free of charge and sit down with you and help you do so. It is their job to do so.

04/28/2012: Dazednconfused from Bfe, AR replies: "Thank you Oscar. I thought I had mentoned that he is on S. S. , $231 month, (child support gets the rest of it), and he cannot afford the $99 for medical care, and only gets the part of Medicare that covers any hospital bills. BTW, BFE Ar. Should read "AR. ", aka Arkansas. I didn't want to get too specific about the town, as BFE covers pretty much most of the state, and a beautiful one I might add!
I will order the BHT off the internet then. As for now, the ascites has subsided considerably over the last day or two, and his abdomen is not nearly as tight and protruding as it has been in the last few weeks, and that was while taking the Aldectone. The only 2 things I have added to his dietary supplementation was some ACV, about a capful a day, and freshly ground milk thistle seeds for tea, 3x's a day(he was taking M. Thistle capsules, 175mg. , 2 x's a day, maybe they were cheap imitations, I dk. I think he is sneaking in a little sea salt also, and more H2O, as I did recommend he take sea salt several years ago when he was first diagnosed with cirohsis. I will keep my fingers crossed and will stay in touch with any blood test results after admistering the BHT.
What are the most beneficial blood tests to ask for when trying to trace the cirrhosis and Hep. C progression? Once again, thank you for your time."

12/23/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Jerry from New Iberia, There is growing evidence here in this forum that BHT [ butylated hydroxytoluene ] is a very effective and relatively safe treatment for hepatitis C. The dosages being discussed vary. From the feed back available at this time: For best results for average size adults take one 350mg capsule of BHT TWICE a day with a gulp of water on an EMPTY stomach. If you experience any negative side effects lower the dosage to one capsule per day. It will still work and work well at the lower dosage but will be likely to take longer [ a few months at lower dosages and a few weeks at the higher dosages ].
I always need to remind everyone that it takes at least 2 years of daily dosing with BHT to achieve a true cure. Simply achieving a NO VIRUS DETECTED result does NOT mean your liver is no longer infected. Your liver will still be full of infected cells. But if you keep taking the BHT on a daily basis: Eventually a true CURE is achieved because the liver completely renews itself about every year or so....Oscar"

07/29/2011: Connie from Slc, Ut: "Hi John P. ; I have not had Hepatitis, so I would respectfully defer suggestions for that to the good folks here, such as Oscar from Syracuse. But I have had severe, even crippling Neuropathy off and on in these last 4 years. The symptoms you describe : numbness, tingling, burning, and coldness of hands and feet are Neuropathy. They are also some of the classic symptoms of B-12 deficiency. B-12 deficiency can occur so easily for so many reasons and liver trouble is one of them. I suggest moving quickly to resolve this as it can quickly worsen. If you choose tests, such as serum B12, homocysteine, methylmalonic acid, (urine or serum) ; they may or may not be conclusive of this. For instance, a serum value of B12 between 200-500 pg/ml is considered to be normal. Many people much more expert than me feel strongly that these levels are far too low, particularly when there are neurological symptoms. Methylcobalamin is the preferred form of B12 for neuropathy. Subcutaneous injections are recommended. I have had astonishingly good results with sublingual methylcobalamin, although I had to learn that I must have it every day. I take a 5000 mcg. Lozenge. I hope it will help you."Replies

Not sure if I bought the right ingrediants as this B-12 ingrediants are croscarmellose sodium, magnesium sterate, silica, cherry flavor, cyanocobalamin, malic acid...

07/28/2011: John P. from Cape Cod, Ma: "I have had hepititis C for over 20 years. My viral load is 2.5 million, my enzymes are both in the 140-150 range. I have no symptoms other than I ocassionally get nauseous and have muscle spasms in calves and feet. When I take any kind of anti-virals or anti-oxidents such as olive leaf, milk thistle, IP-6, Vitamin C, Reishi mushrooms, etc. my hands and feet get extremely cold and my pulse goes from 60 to 80 or 90 beats a minute. In the winter, the palms of my hands and my feet get extremely cold. In the summer, my hands and feet are numb and tingling and are starting to get cold even in the warm weather. Recently my feet and legs twitch and feel like there are needles sticking in them. Sometimes my palms and feet burn tremendously, especially after I eat. I have been to serveral doctors including liver doctors who have no idea what I am talking about. I believe this may be a neuropathy caused by hepititis C. I have not met a doctor who is the least bit sympathetic to my problems. They just want me to go on interferon. Would appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

06/25/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, U.s.a. replies: "I posted about BHT earlier in this thread as a treatment for hepatitis-C. I think BHT is as safe a treatment there is in the small dosages I have discussed: 200mg of BHT per day on an empty stomach with water worked for me and fast. I was symptum free and tested negative with the hep-C RNA test in about 3 to 4 weeks. Now my liver still had infected cells, but no virus was showing up in my blood tests. From what you have stated you are sicker than I was though I was quite ill.
BHT has been evaluated extensively by the World Health Organization as to toxicity. A report published by them discusses all this and is a compilation of over 50 studies that were done over a long period of time. I am new to this forum and am not sure if I can link to that study or not. I will try to. If I remember correctly they state that BHT is non-toxic to the liver at 25mg per kilogram of body weight per day. A 110 pound person wieghs 50 kilograms and 50x25=1, 250mg. Though some others consider that a safe dosage for HEALTHY people, I do not, and you are not a healthy person.
I weighed and still weigh about 180 pounds. I successfully treated my hepatitis-C infection using only 200mg per day of BHT with water on an empty stomach. I do not know of a safer more effective treatment than BHT taken in the small doses I have discussed. It is usually sold in 350mg capsules but you can open the capsules up and split that in half. Just pour about half of the capsule out and put the capsule back together. I also recommend you simply lick your finger and dab it on the BHT crystals and lick your finger to see if you have any ill effect as an added safety precaution. Most people have no ill effects using BHT in the small dosages I have discussed. I never had any ill effects. Some people have reported dizziness using BHT. But they are often taking higher doses also.
I don`t know what to say. It sounds like you are very sick. I was not as sick as you are, though I was quite ill and had a failing liver: jaundice, dark urine, nausea and such. If you decide to try BHT, do that little taste test I suggested and work your way up carefully to make sure you have no ill effects. And, like I said, I weigh about 180 pounds and 200mg per day of BHT worked for me just like I said: in about 3 to 4 weeks. You still need to keep taking it even when you feel well because it takes years of daily dosing to actually free your liver of all infected cells. BHT destroys the viruses in the blood and intercellualar fluids, not inside a living cell. But the liver is constantly creating new cells and a true cure can eventually be acheived with daily dosing. I now test negative using even the antibodies and antigens tests for both hepatitis-B and hepatitis-C. This is what the VA, Veterans Administration told me in 2006. They do not prescribe BHT. I self treated this infection. BHT is NOT a prescribable treatment for hepatitis-C or anything else at this time as far as I know. I pray for your full recovery with whatever you decide to try....Oscar"

I have been taking it ever since, and have another appt. this Thursday with an Infectious Disease specialist. He wants to discuss a "New" treatment, probably that protease that's being used along with ribarivin and interferon. I do not want to go that route, because of the side effects. I think I am feeling a lot better and would not be surprised if my viral load is now undetectable. It was reduced by 50% in one month; and it has been three since my last lab. If it hasn't gone down significantly, I will amp it up to 250 mgs. twice a day. I just can't decide if I'm going to tell my doctor about my BHT protocol. Maybe I will just wait until it disappears and then tell him how and why. But so far, I feel the BHT has been very effective."
12/13/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Yanktongal, This is the sort of feedback I have been praying for [ and I have been a non-believer giving my non-belief some second thoughts ]. Thank you so very much for posting your results. This BHT really does work as a VERY EFFECTIVE treatment for hepatitis C. This forum needs to hear from people who are trying this treatment. Now, there is another forum member who like you has HCV type 1a. As you probably already know: The type 1 variants of hepatitis C have proven to be the hardest to treat. It is worth noting that about 80% of the people in the USA infected with hepatitis C have one of the HCV type 1 variants.
Anyway, this other forum member who has HCV type 1a has posted similar results using the same dosage you have been using: She reported a two thirds reduction in her viral load count after about 8 weeks of using the BHT at the same or close to the dosage you have been using. Her liver function test results returned to NORMAL or healthy readings also in that 8 weeks of treatment with the BHT.
Also, I have been posting some other people`s test results in this forum as have others. From the feedback available: It seems that dosages of between 200mg and 350mg of BHT taken TWICE a day is best for most average size adults. But if that double dosing so to speak causes significant side effects, that is no reason to get discouraged. Those smaller dosages DO work, it just takes a little longer is all. So if you can tolerate this twice a day dosing without significant side effects, that is what seems to work best from the feedback available at this time. If not, just stick with the once a day dosing, you ARE getting well. You WILL get those no virus detected results. This BHT really does work as a treatment for hepatitis C in all of its variants.
Please keep in mind that the conventional treatments for HCV type 1a are on average 48 weeks of the interferon ribavron and only work for about 50% of the people so treated when some third, new compound is added to that mix. And, very importantly: Many if not most of those people relapse within 5 years. Those conventional treatments are quite toxic and cannot be taken indefinately under the best circumstances [ those people who can tolerate them without very serious side effects for 48 weeks].
Now, I need to be very clear about this: Simply achieving a NO VIRUS DETECTED RESULT does NOT mean you are cured of hepatitis C. All it means is that there was no HCV virus detected in your blood at the time the test was done. Your liver will still be full of infected cells. BHT can NOT uninfect a living liver cell. NOTHING can do that. BUT, every cell in a person`s liver is a new cell in about every year or so. With the BHT you simply keep taking it as long as neccessary [ at least 2 years in my experience and opinion ]. Probably longer than 2 years. BUT, and this is the beauty of this BHT stuff: There is very substantial proof that BHT is in fact good for you. That PHYSIOLOGICAL REVIEWS article I have refferred to in the past shows an average lifespan increase in mice dosed with BHT of 21% to 32% in mice dosed with BHT over their entire lifetimes compared to undosed mice.
So, like I said: just keep taking the BHT and eventually you will be truly CURED of hepatitis C. Please keep the forum updated with any and all test results. That is extremely important. And when you do achieve those NO VIRUS DETECTED results, please do tell your doctor how you did it. I have been trying for over 14 years now to get the medical establishment to wake up to the fact that BHT cures hepatitis C. This BHT stuff really does work. Not sort of, or maybe it helps somewhat. BHT CURES HEPATITIS C!!! ...Oscar"

Will keep you posted."
09/13/2010: Dwfree1 from Overland Park, Kansas: "I have Hep C now for 25 yrs what is good to take or drink to have a healthier liver?
04/25/2012: Imready2 from Edgewood, Tx replies: "Oscar, I know when I take it I need to wait an hour before eating, but, don't know how long to wait after eating to take a dose of the BHT. What do you think?"
05/08/2009: Bilbar from Salt Lake City, Utah, USA: "Hi all, I've recently been diagnosed with hep-C. And What brought to the hospital was a severe abdominal bloating. Can anyone tell me the reasons possibly behind this side effect, it turned out to be a fluid they drained surrounding my abdominal cavity, but not in my organs. The fluid built back up 2 days later. and I've beeen bloated ever since. I have started the h202, milk thistle, and aloe vera, treatments. how do I stop the fluids???"Replies
05/20/2009: Canary from Boulder, Colorado replies: "You probably have cirhosis and the bloating, water retention is ascites. At least see a hepatologist. get one recommened and knows well and experienced in dealing with hep c.
For now, try milk thistle..high grade.., ALA -alpha-lopeic-acid, selenium-methylselenocystine, phosphatidyl-choline. Eat healthy and liver friendly, take extra care of your self. Do a lot of research on the net.
Fluid build up as you describe is not to be taken lightly.
Bestwishes to you.
This horrid disease!"
05/07/2011: Catpleasant from Reno, Nv Usa replies: "I had that happen, the doctors pulled over three liters of fluid out of stomach cavity and another 3 out of one lung. (was a very sick person).
I'm surpised they didn't prescribe diuretics (water pills) for the fluid, as well as some of the pharmacuetals they have available for helping the liver work better.
If you use salt, stop. Lower your salt intake to zero (impossible but at least throw out the salt shaker). For awhile my fluid intake was severely restricted. though now, they keep telling me I'm dehydrated and need to drink more water.
Unfortunately, the main diuretic I'm suppose to take seems to shut my kidneys down, so I don't take it every day (no fooling right?).
Welcome to the world of the tightrope walk with keeping your body functioning with different pills. I apologise for that - but it seems to be closer to the truth than what even I care to believe.
email me and I'll tell you exactly what the doctors have me on, what each pill does, and how each one works.
06/30/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Well, I have posted about BHT [ butylated hydroxytoluene ] so very many times now in different forums, as a very effective treatment for hepatitis-C and a relatively safe one in the small dosages I have discussed [ 200mg per day on an empty stomach with water only for a 180 pound person, ME ]. I do not know what more I can do as to all this. This BHT stuff works as a treatment for hepatitis-C, taken in the dosages I have discussed in the way I have discussed so very many times now since 1997, based on my and others experience....Oscar"
08/15/2011: Benjie007 from Muntinlupa, Rizal, Philippines replies: "hi Oscar, im benjie from philippines, I've been reading about your advice regarding BHT. My question is ? I have a peptic ulcer at present and I have a hepatitis c with cirrhosis. Do you think it is safe for me to use BHT as my alternative medicine to my illness. please reply, thanks a lot."
08/15/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "This is a tough question for me to answer. I am not a doctor. Just what effect BHT would have on a peptic ulcer is beyond my experience or knowledge. I will suggest that BHT sensitivity test I described in earlier postings. Also, if you decide you wish to try the BHT treatment: You can open one those capsules and empty one directly into your mouth. Allow for a large amount of saliva to build up in your mouth before swollowing. Also drink a full cup of water to dillute this mixture of saliva and BHT. Do the sensitivity test first. You can always take smaller amounts of BHT also. That is the best I can do to annswer your question. I do think BHT may very well aggrivate a peptic ulcer. If you experience pain you may wish to take one tablespoon of olive oil to coat your stomach. Let me know what happens. There are ways to work out these problems with some experimentation with known to be safe things like olive oil.
What have you used in the past to ease the pain of this peptic ulcer ? ...Oscar"
08/16/2011: Benjie007 from Muntinlupa, Philippines replies: "Hi oscar, for 1 month now im taking pantoprazole 40 mg 30 mins before breakfast for my peptic ulcer. I ordered BHT today, hope I will received it next week. I will let you know. thanks for the good advice, god bless always."
08/18/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "I have been thinking about you Benjie, I don`t know what is the best way for you to take BHT. It crossed my mind that the best way for you to take it may very well be the way I always take it: with a gulp of water on an empty stomach because this would get the BHT to your duodenum quickly. The duodenum is the organ just beyond the stomach and is where oils and fats are processed for digestion. BHT is similar to fats and oils in that it is not water soluble. Like fats and oils it has a high hydrocarbon content. So my thinking is get the BHT past your stomach and into the duodenum as quickly as possible. Just taking the capsule with a gulp of water is the quickest way to do this. Maybe a little milk would help. I don`t know. You are going to have to experiment and find out what works best for you.
BHT is NOT in anyway a harsh substance. It has very little taste of any kind. If you can take it with a gulp of water on an empty stomach without any problem that is best. I want to see you get well. Let me know this treatment works for you. There are some others in this forum giving BHT a try for thier hepatitis C infections. I know of two who are reporting positive results. I can be reached at the Life Extension forum. I am " oscar2u " in that forum and you can send me: PMs [ personal messages ] there if you wish to in that forum. Also post your results in this forum. This is important to me. BHT seems to work remarkably well for some people when nothing else has. Usually I never hear from people who try it, or they say they are feeling much better after a few weeks and that is the last I hear from them.
Some have reported sensitivity issues: this is most often some dizzyness. These issues can be worked through easily enough with some gradual increase of the BHT dosage. Most people have no problem with the small dosages I have discussed but some do. Anyway let this forum know how it works for you. There is no one else out there focusing on the use of BHT to treat hepatitis C that I know of and your feedback is important. Bless You, ...Oscar"
08/18/2011: Benjie007 from Muntinlupa, Philippines replies: "hi oscar, im planning to use BHT may be after I finished all the medicine for my ulcer probably a month. I will let you know beside I ordered BHT already. Thanks for thinking and caring about my health situation. god bless."
10/31/2011: Dan from Clearwater, Florida replies: "Benjie, I'm curious -- were you were able to take the BHT or did it irritate your peptic ulcer too much?
If taking it orally is not working for you, have you considered administering transdermally with DMSO; or as a rentention-enema; or perhaps with the aid of a nebulizer?
Note: Each of these may present their own problems, and I have no idea whether any of them would work or if they'd just create other problems or dangers, so please be careful if you try something along these lines.
04/25/2012: Imready2 from Edgewood, Tx replies: "Oscar, I've a couple more questions: Would it not be better to crush this BHT to a finer powder before taking it? surely it would enter the bloodstream better. I also would like to say that I have no way of measuring the amount I'm taking. SO, I'm using some empty capsules, and I think that when I bought them (for MMS2) that I bought the double o size. I"ve only taken two doses, and my third is coming up tonight. BUT, I have eaten this evening, so, I'm wondering how long to wait for the nightly dose. I'm on a different computer, and couldn't remember my user name and password to sign in, so, I've signed in as a guest called ImReady2, and my sign-in name is just ImReady. So, I'm not sure how any responses will get back to me. I'll check back later.
Thanks for offering this information about BHT, my life is dependant on it!

11/21/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Lana from Raliegh, There is one person I know of who has hepatitis C type 3. He is trying the BHT treatment and had good results in the first month. If I remember correctly he cut the viral load by two thirds in the first month of treatment.
