I have been DXed w/ Hepatitis C. I have failed two treatment's. Milk Thistle is being touted as a supplement to use. Do you know any thing about Milk Thistle...? Are there many form's/dosage of the Milk Thistle...? How do I know which dosage is for my particular case. Thanking you in advance, I am.

Yes it does help heal hep c. I'm a Rev of the Genesis 2 Church. I work with it and have been taking it for two years. Helps kill the bad virus and bacteria in our bodies.

My friend, As a parasitologist, I know that Hep C virus will take away your B12. The best therapy is as follow:

B12 injections.
Vitamin D
Vitamin C injection under supervised doctor
Milk Thistle at least 80% Sylmarin
Nacety cystein
Glutathion injection

You will be cure and feeling better in NO TIME. It is a therapy I took and developed after reading TONES of scientific ARTICLES from prestigious universities.

Oregano from Canada, of course I have read about milk thistle for hepatitis C. And I believe it is of value for liver detox.

BUT, it DOES severely degrade the BHT treatment. The two treatments do NOT work well together. That statement is based on the substantial feedback from those using the BHT treatment. Some treatments simply do NOT work well when used together. Those using milk thistle with the BHT treatment have consistantly shown very poor results. BHT is a reactive compound when digested and metabilized. Those showing the best results and there are many, KEEP IT SIMPLE.

So, if you choose to go the BHT route for hepatitis C, keep it simple and do not take milk thistle or it`s extracts. The same is true with grapefruit juice. Don't use it with BHT. Some treatments simply do not work well together. Is that so hard to understand ? ...Oscar

Dear Oscar, as a parasitologist, I read many and I mean many articles about the best therapy for Hep C. I came up with the protocol I described. Sylmarin not only helps the liver but LITERALLY REDUCE THE VIRAL LOAD.

My protocol is as followed:

B12 INJECTION, Vitamin D, Vitamin C injection, N acety cystein and Sylmarin or at least 80% Sylmarin. Try it and you feel better in NO TIME.

Dear Oregano from Canada, I want you to know meant no offense to you and am not questioning the value of your treatment for hepatitis C.

But the BHT treatment is obviously based on BHT. And certain compounds do NOT work well with BHT and silymarin is one of them. So for those people who choose the BHT approach to treating hepatitis C it is important that they know that. Again I am NOT questioning the value of your treatment which does not include BHT.

They are two different approaches to treating hepatitis C and there are other approaches also. Sincerely, ...Oscar

If you want to reduce your liver enzymes get a phlebotomy (removal of a pint of blood) It will reduce your iron level and therefore reduce your inflamation and therefore reduce your enzymes levels... And it's covered by insurance... My enzymes went from 185 ish for both to 45 and 80 in about 5 months worth of plabotomies... Hep-c makes your liver hold iron, something you do not want...

If I might add my little two cents on the topic.

For many yrs, I have suffered complications consistent with Chronic Active Viral Hepatitis, although I have never been medically diagnosed thus. Also I have shown symptoms consistent with Fatty Liver as well as Primary Cirrhosis. I have used Milk Thistle, Artichoke, and Turmeric as primary herbs as well as many other herbs as supportive. Lots of nutrition like B-Vit, Lecithin, etc as well as Raw Liver Supplements. All this with marginal improvement (more like not getting worse). For some time the best results I got for the hep was glutathione precursor amino's plus Licorice, plus DMG. Eventually I had to drop the Lic protocol because of Hypertension/sodium retention, so I replaced with other anti-virals like St John'sWort and Echinacea but with not the net effect of the L. A couple yrs ago after reading about BHT here on E. C. I tried 250mg on empty stomach once daily with very good and noticeable results, but after couple months leveled off. All this time I continued with the other liver support herbs and take the BHT several hrs away. So I upped to 250 BHT to twice daily but with not much improvement. Desperate again, I began using Chanca Padra occasionally after having all but terminated the BHT. I experienced the best results with the Chaca Piegra than any other herb and rank it proly somewhere on the same level of BHT for effectiveness. Anyway, I now take 1 250 BHT wait 15 min and take one cap Chaca Piedra daily with as good a result as any other previous methods.

To sum up, personally I think some type rotation is the best method for especially those suffering severe or life-threatening situation/condition. A weekly rotations of Liver med protocol seems sensible although a monthly might be best (results will vary in individuals). In my case, I did not experience the anti-viral results with a somewhat identical protocol as Oregano recommended. I didn't experience deleterious effects of BHT plus the other nutrients Oscar recommends avoiding although I took those nutrients away from BHT. So, rotating on a daily basis (which is the method I am doing) may proove beneficial if done correctly and for specific cases. IMHO the BHT does it's thang 2-3 hrs fallowing ingestion. So I am suggesting BHT alone with no rotation is not going to produce the best results for the majoirty of patients, but again it's very much an issue of personal outcomes. Find what works best, like myself, even if it takes several yrs of testing/rotating.

Hello Sir, Like I said, Sylmarin is a very good remedy against Hep C. It is APPROVED IN GERMANY as a liver detox and a liver aid drug. It has been proven to lower the viral load. The best treatment is : Sylmarin, B12 injection, Vitamin D, Vitamin C injection, N Acety cystein and Glutathion injection.I'm happy you are a living proof of Sylmarin against your Cirrhosis.All the best.

Dear Oscar, I have nothing against BHT. BHT is an antioxidant known as a food preservative. It has some antiviral activities. But the protocol I described was from many scientific articles published in good medical journals. B12 and Vitamin D alone has been shown to reduce the viral load. N Acetyl cystein also has been shown to reduce the viral load though Glutathion production. Vitamin C also has been shown to inactivate the virus.

So I'm not against your apporoach but the best is what it is more sound and approved by science.

My protocol for curing Hep C or B is as follows:

Injections : Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Glutahtion

Supplements: Vitamin D, N acetyl cystein and Sylmarin or at least 80% Sylmarin standard extract.

All the best

Hi Ted! I noticed that while reading one of your posts that you did not have an opinion about Milk Thistle because you did not have much info about it. I just wanted to inform you that this product taken twice a day at 4,750mlg has made me feel a whole lot better. Yes I have the dreaded h-c [hepatitis c] and don't like to mention it because people will avoid you. Before going on Milk Thistle after doing a 42 week pegatron therapy I was felling fluish all the time. Since I have been on the Milk Thistle the fluish feeling has all but gone and I feel much more normal.Two thumbs up for Milk Thistle. You will see it recommended on the hep c website. Thank you.

I have had hepatitis c for over 25 years. In the early 1980's I read an article about Milk Thistle from an herb company outside of NYC and it sounded like what I needed. There weren't a lot of herb stores around then so I ordered from them. Since then I have taken many different combination of herbs but mainly milk thistle. I now take a combination of milk thistle/fringe tree, Turmeric & cayenne pepper. The first two in equal doses and the pepper in small dose. I capsule my own alternative medications and mix a teaspoon of the first three and 1/2 a teaspoon of the third. Mix them very well and get a cheap capsule machine on the internet along with 00 capsules. I had a biopsy 4 years ago-I am still at stage one and have by no means maintained a healthy lifestyle until the past few years. I hope it helps.

New Drugs for Hep C

I finish my 12 wk course of Harvoni in the first week of June. I started with a viral load of 359,000 in the first week of March. My viral load was 27 (yep...that is correct) in the first week of April. I will do another test the first week of June . The definitive answer to see if the virus has been cured will happen 12 wks after the final dose in the first week of September.

The company (Gilead) that produced the drug Harvoni initially listed minor side effects: headache, nausea & insomnia. They have now updated their site to reflect some lessor known side effects that I personally have experienced. My worst side effects occurred after the first week which I contributed to being healthier than most people in this program. At the current time my side effects are: severe congestion, bloat & easily tired. All worth it if I am cleared of this virus that I got from tainted blood during a surgery in 1976 when Bill Clinton, president of the blood board at that time, approved blood donations from prisoners in Arkansas...what?

I have been mostly organic with lots of supplements so I have not been as sick as most people that have had Hep C this long with viral counts in the millions.

If you are trying to decide whether or not to take this drug which costs about $75,000 for a 3 month course ( my insurance company: manulife covered it...bless this company for doing this) I would strongly advise this treatment as it is only 1 pill per day with or without food, with or without alcohol so your lifestyle does not have to change.

I hope this helps someone who is undecided. I will let you know if I am cleared in September.

Dear Id form [ Edmonton, Alberta ]: Thank you for posting this life saving information. There are also some other new drugs with equally impressive results as treatments for hepatitis C.

Yes these treatments are expensive. But $60,000 to $ 75,000 dollars US is NOT all that much if it saves your life.

I have tried all natural holistic medicines for hep c ie: olive leaf, miracle mineral solution, bht, massive doses of vit c, b etc, iv's of hydrogen peroxide vit c and r-alpha lipoic acid all to no avail. Killing the virus doesn't work because it will mutate or go into hiding and come out stronger. The new drugs work ie: Harvoni by stopping the replicating process of the cv. I am on 12 week program with 4 weeks to go and have been non detected since 6 weeks previous viral load was 8.5 million. Harvoni is miracle drug we've all been praying for.

I was diagnosed with hepititis c and cirrhosis about five years ago, I have been keeping it under control with green juices, diet and exercise.

Dear Dan From UK, It does seem that the drug companies have come up with some relatively safe and effective treatments for hepatitis C. If you are fortunate enough to have access to said treatments I see no reason not to use them. In the past I promoted using BHT. But you will NOT get the carefully monitored results if you go the BHT route. From what you stated you have been holding your own with the supplements you discussed. But that could and often does change, get worse. It seems to me well worth giving these new drugs a try. Your doctor will be carefully monitoring the results. What more can you expect or ask for....Oscar

Dear Diane from Sherborn, MA, I am sorry you do not tolerate BHT very well. There is some very good news regarding these new treatments due to be available right now and some in the very near future also. There is more than one such treatment.

A discussion of these new hepatitis C treatments can be found here:


And here:


Short extract from above link:

"This has made me change the way I'm talking with patients. These regimens are essentially going to cure everybody, " said Muir, who has conducted related research but did not participate in these studies. "I had a patient in my office this morning who said, 'If I get cured, ' and I said to him, 'When you get cured," Muir added.

"I think the great thing about these new direct-acting antivirals is that with the right combinations of drugs, all patients appear to be cured, " said Muir.

So that is the level of confidence Dr. Muir and others who actually treat hepatitis C patients have in these new treatments. There are many other websites that discuss all this also. These new drugs are both much more effective and much safer....Oscar

Oscar, Thank you for the quick respnse. I AM a bit over 50 so it's likely the reason I don't respond to BHT, as you mentioned previously, older people don't respond as well. My enzymes are 88 and 180...However my viral load is 131,000 which is quite low...It would appear that I may be a good candidate for this new treatment...Thx again

I have tried to take BHT several times but can't take it. My Dr also said there is another drug coming in the fall. Of course I'm hesitant to take any drugs especially one with no cure rates...So if anyone has any feedback I'd be very, very greatful..Thank you.

I just recently went thru this treatment, and it worked for me. At the end of 12 wks there were no signs of the virus, and that was in July 2014. I will be retested for hep c in Jan.

You have to understand though every person and case is different. It will depend a lot on what stage you are in. All I can say is it worked for me, and trust your doctor.

Hope this gives you some comfort and God Bless

When you click on hepatitis C, b and c highlight and you get the results for b. Is this supposed to be together? Do you have a separate C catagory? I was just checking on C and can not find anything here, but I do have additional info.

Have you heard of Olive Leaf as a hep C remedy? I used it briefly and reduced my counts by a large amount but the Dr talked me into the interferon which I regret immensly. I took the olive leaf (anti virus/anti fungal) along with the aminos for liver repair and milk thistle. I heard about the Olive leaf from a women with a holistic store in NH.

Also, do you have a remedy for interferon poisoning?


EC: Hi Laurie,

Thanks for bringing the broken link to our attention. Fixed!

Hi Laurie... Here is an entry by Ted from Bangkok regarding a cure for Hep C :

"This is just my experience of a Hepatitis C that was cured. It happened about 23 years ago during a war in Angola, when one of young soldier got a tick bite which caused him to get the hepatitis C. Because the soldier didn't take baths during war, the tick made it's way to his armpits and spread the hepatitis C that way. Upon checking with his doctor, the doctor said that if you got black or dark urine, you got Hepatitis C. So the soldier went on to check his urine, and it turns out he got it when his pee became black. The doctor said nothing can be done about to cure it.

23 years later the same soldier, who is now a businessman that had more than 1/2 of his life with a Hep C, came to see me. Apparently the attacks became more severe and more frequent. For example, last year it was an attack every 3 or 4 months, then just this year the attack was almost every month and the severity was worse. Eyes were yellow, energy level low, painful areas in liver, lymph node congestion causing pain.

The most important remedy that was used was a 55 minute 4 dose, for 4 days, using both the lysine and aspirin taken together, but before taking that vitamin C ascorbic acid was used (not perfect, I prefer sodium ascorbate).

The dose were continued for 4 days 4 dose each, and the attacks and symptoms disappeared. The HEP C viruses have two major weaknesses: mainly lysine and aspirin.

However, zinc was given but since most people have low tolerance of zinc if taken extended period of time. I just limit the zinc acetate to just 50 mg a day for 2 days.

To date he has not has any episode of Hep C at all after this remedy and his symptons are completely gone, including hallucinations, shaking hands, lack of energy, pain in the right abdominal area, fever and chills. Just to make sure, it's possible to take lysine 1200 mg twice a day as a maintenance dose, however, the person I talked to didn't take any maintenance dose at all.

The reason why he talked to me about his condition was I cured maybe 80% his mother of stroke, which left half of her body paralyzed, after no improvement for 6 months with conventional hospital treatment. More on that later. There are other small details in the remedy, but for Hep C, this is the most important remedy I have mentioned is just the vitamin C, lysine, aspirin and zinc. A lesson to be learn is we can get a virus from a tick bites.

The fact that viruses dies in ticks or mosquitoes may not entirely be true. Mosquitoes spreads the Chikungunya viruses too. Insects are considered vectors in spread of many viruses. "

See this link: https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/hep_c.html#TED

To clarify, the dosages for Ted's cure will be:

500 mgs Aspirin(just ordinary Acetylsalicylic Acid completely dissolved in half glass of water)

1000 mgs Lysine

1000 mgs Vitamin C(Sodium Ascorbate form)

50 mgs Zinc(taken twice only)

The Lysine/Aspirin/Vitamin C remedy is taken 4 times a day at 55 minute intervals. The Zinc is taken for two days only. This remedy is taken, as a whole, for four days only. Thereafter, take 1200 mgs twice a day as a maintenance dose.

It would also be advisable to take herbs such as Milk Thistle, Chanca Piedra, Cat's Claw or Dandelion in order to effect repair and to help regenerate the liver as well as to further protect the blood and gut. Olive leaf is also a strong and well respected antiviral and anti-bacterial and is worth taking.

Having a dangerously low platelet count (which can cause internal bleeding since my blood doesn't clot easily) is the only reason I'm adding this note.

Aspirin is a natural blood thinner - which can stop the blood from clotting.

Be sure that you know what your platelet count is and what it should be before you start taking aspirin. Aspirin can cause me to bleed to death internally.

Hep C at any stage starts to effect your platelet count. If you've had the chemo-therapy treatments for Hep C, you may have a lower platelet count. It's been a couple of years since it was drawn out as a picture so I don't remember all of it. The plateletts get trapped in the spleen, instead of being released into the blood stream --

Another "thought" motrin, ibuprophen, and tylenol are all metabolised by the liver and are extrememly hard on the liver.
