I myself went through a horrific battle with pruritus (and jaundice); I finally figured out that it can be controlled with diet; I stopped eating everything except fruits and vegetables and it stopped. But of course I lost 20 lbs, but it was such a relief. I was so skinny I couldn't look at myself; I finally got over my problem, which turned out to be caused by drug I was given (macrobid/nitrofurentoin). Now I am back to normal.

Which vitamin(s) does your daughter have inadequate liver stores of? Orthomolecular experts believe that many serious health conditions are the result of some individuals having unusually high requirements (i.e. , metabolic abnormalities) for specific vitamins or minerals. Depending on the regulations where you live, a naturopathic physican may be able to try IV-administered high doses of the vitamin(s) in question. Try a Google search for your region's naturopathic association and look for someone who mentions orthomolecular medicine as an area of practice.

Hi, I'm finding some of your tips very helpful. Here's somthing I hope you can help me with. I have a 5 year old with Vitamin Deficiency in her liver. She's been tested for everything since she was 6 months old that's all they can find. She's on Rifampin for itching. I don't think it's working anymore. She and I now are up all night from her scratching. She misses alot of days from school. Her school clothes, sheets, panties and fingernails are bloody from her scratching. She cries in her sleep. This has been going on for the past 3 years. The doctors said there's nothing they can do. PLEASE HELP!!!!
