Like Pandora's post below from 8/5/2015, same thing with me. I went from 7.5 million in 2016 to 500,000 viral load 7 months ago. This month I'm at 1.5 million. I've been doing the BHT, Monolauren pellets and other supplements for years and I'm still hep c positive. Harvony and Viekira didn't work.
BTW, I didn't take BHT on an empty stomach and I've been taking too much Vitamin E. My mistake and I think I may have been my own worst enemy. Do yourself a favor and get plenty of choline in your diet.
The BHT 250mg that I have been using now for over two and a half years has made me feel a lot better and increased my energy, although it has failed to cure me of Hep-C. I have been monitoring your posts here and am encouraged to see you are helping a lot of people. My friend bigmac says hi as well.
Now I would like to update my condition. I am 67 years and have had to change my diet due to recently going from Borderline Diabetes to type 2 Diabetes, after taking R+NAC for 1 year. I was so bloated that I could no longer sit and tie my shoe laces and I was getting a lot of gut pain.
Turns out that I am Lactose intolerant and have to use Lactose free milk. As well I have had to stop eating all processed foods and all whites including breads and anything with Gluten in it. I was shocked to discover how much sugar they use. Now I eat a lot of Salads, chicken, pork, unsalted peanuts, Golden Delicious Apples with a dab of Sugar Free Peanut Butter on it, and eggs with Pears for breakfast. I have since found Sugar Free Ice Cream which I have with Strawberries on it. I have found a solution to my Constipation problem and now have daily bowel movements which are easy to pass and are much softer. It is RestoralLAX 1 cap full added to my morning coffee.
Over the past six weeks I have dropped my weight from 205lbs. to 193lbs. and reduced my pants size from 44 to 40 waist. The chest pains have disappeared and the pain around my Liver area right lower lobe has also decreased to near none.
I am still taking the BHT 350mg per day some times on an empty stomach and sometimes just before a meal because of it's other benefits though not loosing all hope with it for the Hep-C cure. I continue to use Chanca Piedra 500mg per day for it's ability to reduce Liver pain and for it's antiviral properties. My Neuropathy is under control with R=Alpha Lipoic Acid 200mg x2 per lunch and supper.
I did get a Shingles Vaccine shot last year which elevated my Liver count. I did that just to play it safe against getting Shingles and then found out it's a live virus they use in it. I hope I didn't screw things up. My last blood draw showed 51 ALT on my Liver function test and I will have another Ultra Sound on my Liver soon. As for my other aches and pains, they come and go just like before taking the BHT.
As for the Milk Thistle, I quit using it a couple of years ago after finding out that it can cancel other meds and herbs by trying to protect the Liver. I am glad I don't have to waste the precious little money I have on it.
I do find that if I feel a smidge sick over night that Ginger Root Extract cures that. I suppose I should take it ever day but don't.
Take care Oscar!!!!
Oscar, I started taking the BHT with Monolaurin 3 months ago and my viral load on 3.15.13 was 14.5 million and dropped after 3 months to 7.3 million tested 7.08.13. I take the BHT 350 mg 3 times a day with one teaspoon of Monolaurin. All my other ast and alt levels are in normal range. This is after 3 months so I am so thankful for the BHT protocol. I will continue the BHT protocol until this disease is gone.....
Oscar, Thank you! BHT worked for me. Last August I knew something was wrong internally. Chronic fatigue muscle stiffness weight loss. I searched the web and found your group. I felt better in days! One cap with water and a coffee every day keeps me feeling well.
I'd been diagnosed with Hep C but didn't like the low results and many side effects of Interferon.
Glad I found you.
Very happy today new test, very good news, before I only take 1 250mg of bht, in this was the results;AST-162;alt-175; VIRAL-7, 0605 iu/ml; after that I use 2 250mg of bht twice a day, good, very good news, AST-52;ALT-53; viral-8, 100. I take to D3 2000iu one a day;and b12 1000mg, one a day. Now I'm very happy.
Today is Sun. Jan. 15th 2012. I began using BHT on Jan. 6th 2012. My Hep C never bothered me until August of 2011. About the middle of the month I began to be very sensitive to the sun and soon after developed a serious itching problem. Along with this my urine became very dark (orange to almost brown) and my stools became ultra pale to almost white. I could feel my liver was in an enlarged condition every time I inhaled deeply or ate too much. My appetite fluctuated from good to poor but no matter what I slowly lost 15 pounds from 178 to 163 or so. I found this web site, read Oscars posts, and decided to give BHT a try. After 3 days my urine returned to a normal color. It then became a little darker for a couple days but has since returned to normal again. My stools are slowly returning to a normal color (not there yet) and consistency (I failed to mention I had diarrhea since mid August). As of now I am very hopeful that this is working. I still don't feel perfect but do feel well. My liver feels quite normal, size wise, and I am energized again (felt like crap for a long time). I will post again with my progress. Good luck to all and thanks Oscar.
I have HCV and began taking BHT about 6 weeks ago. I am about 200 lbs and take 1400Mg a day on even days and 700 mg on odd days along with Silymarin and NAC. No side affects at all and I feel great. My Viral load was 837 K. My enzimes were elevated. I should get my next labs in a day or 2- will post results. I am a health care provider.
