Thank you Oscar for the good work.

I started taking BHT to help with my hepatitis b on Oct 18, 2014. I had bad fatigue/joint pains/ and very dark urine. I was diagnosed with chronic hep b. I have been taking 500mg of bht that is 250 mg morning and evening everyday and didn't skip a day for exactly one year. Now it's oct 29/15. I did one liver flush to help my liver fight the virus (I avoided processed food). They did ultrasound and found that am healthy. They took my blood each six months, That's dec/14 , july/15 and oct/15. During the previous two tests I had hbv antigen reactive and negative antibodies but my last test this month changed to HBV antibodies reactive and hbv antigen non reactive. I don't have any symptoms that I had earlier like fatigue/joint pain e.t.c.

Does this test show am cured?

Hello every one,

I just wanted to let you know I have had HEP C for about 20 years now and I think it was getting the better of me tell I found about BHT. Let me tell you I was sick my poo was yellow and so was my pee. My stomach hurt all the time and so did my right side. I could tell that I was not breathing very well.

So the first pill I took of BHT 250 mg I could tell that my breathing was better, After 3 days of taking the BHT 250 mg once in the morning with water only, I see improvements let me tell you about them. First off I see that my poo was the normal brown color and my pee was normal golden yellow. My poo was yellow and I always had the runs.

Sorry if it is to much info. My nausea has almost gone away it was bad. I'm still resting a lot to try and give my body the best chances of killing the hep c from my system. I had a type of rash all around my neck it was red and now it's almost gone. After 7 days of taking the BHT once in the morning I'm feeling better and I'm less depressed. Also I wanted to tell you about my skin it just feels softer, I think it's from all the antioxidant power of the BHT. Today after one week I do

feel a lot better. The nassau I would have to say is gone for the most part. I will keep you all posted on my results. I wanted to tell every one about how much I have improved but I have been so ill and I didn't fee like getting on my computer. Today was the first day I woke up and said to my self I want to tell every one about the BHT treatment. :) I almost feel like I'm going to live now thanks every one for posting your comments about BHT, All the reading helped me a lot and I plan on taking it for two years or more.

Lukey, the BHT appears to be insufficient for you. This is not that unusual (one of ten?). So my question is why? A biohacking approach would be to search for some kind of pervasive pro-viral influence in your life, like (1) estrogen dominance from chronic infection, which you can test, (2) a vegan of vegetarian diet, (3) heavy metal body burden, (4) toxic chemical burden (aspartame, glyphosate, pesticide, fat peroxides, cholesterol oxides, fabric brighteners and anti-wrinkle laundry additives, etc.), and on and on. It is also possible that you have one or more nutritional deficiencies of vitamins A and D, magnesium, selenium, sulfur amino acids, copper, manganese, cobalt (vitamin B12), or vanadium (see the BHT Book for a table of such dietary agents). You might also consider pushing up your BHT levels by using transdermal delivery, which maximizes tissue levels of BHT while minimizing liver metabolism of BHT. This last consideration might also allow you to switch sources for BHT, by buying bulk BHT from a different company. Many natural biological processes are responsible for our innate viral resistance. Metabolic rate, for example, is determined by (1) mitochondrial function, thyroid hormone levels, and thyroid receptor affinity. How are your mitochondria doing? Do you have symptoms of cold hands and feet, low body temperature, low pulse rate? What about your thyroid hormone levels? Are they above average (at or above the half-way point in the "normal" range)? And if they are, do your hypothyroid symptoms decrease in response to low-dose thyroid hormone supplementation? All this may seem daunting, but on some level, lowered biological functioning is the reason why some people have viral susceptibility and others do not. Since biology is complicated, figuring out what part of biology is dysfunctional is equally complicated. One of the best correlations with viral problems is low metabolic rate and hypothyroid symptoms. So assess yourself. Go to the steve page at Project Wellbeing and download the thyroid one-pager and the BHT Book. Put a check mark next to any hypothyroid symptom you show, and two next to any symptom that is blatant. If you have lots of check marks, perhaps a hypothyroid diagnosis has been missed by your doctors? Is your body temperature upon waking more than a degree below normal? Doctors generally do not pay any attention to this, but it is something that is generally associated with chronic viral diseases. And autoimmune diseases. Good luck on your search.

Dear Oscar,

The staff at Earth Clinic and I want to thank you for all the years you have devoted to helping people heal themselves of Hepatitis. We are enormously grateful that you have been patiently answering questions from people around the world on Earth Clinic for almost a decade now. Without a doubt, you have helped thousands of people with your BHT cure.

I was researching the viability of BHT for the Epstein Barr Virus on the web a few weeks ago and came across some of your BHT posts on other sites dating back to 2007, so I know you have been at this a long time.

Please know that you are greatly loved and appreciated here at Earth Clinic.


Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 05/06/2015

Dear Deirdre and the staff of EARTH CLINIC: Your thanks is the best honor of my efforts I could ever have. I burst out in tears when I read your posting.

Many people may not be aware of the courage and fortitude maintaining this website requires. The misery Ted and others have endured to provide the help available here.

Thank you for your kind remarks. Sincerely, ...Oscar

Bht does not have any sides effects. I had bad joint and fatigue and after few months it went away. Just keep on taking BHT but take it strictly without taking any food in the stomach. What you eat determines your pain/fatigue. Avoid fried and processed foods period. that will help your liver ALOT. To me I think based on what I went through, Fatigue and joint pains come from the food you eat since its toxic to your liver. I did not take any other Medicine except Bht, so I don't know if it works with other med. Keep it simple and take it everyday. I am going to doc and will let you know what they said based on my history.

Know what number designates SVR sustained viral response:

I went to Gastroenterologist almost two years of being on BHT. The Doctor sent me for blood test then when the results came back said I was a perfect candidate for this new treatment which high criteria for admission as it cost $100,000.00 the results of that very first test said :

The quantitative range of the assay is 15 IU/mL to 100 million IU/mL using COBAS(R) TaqMan(R) HCV test, v 2.0. The limit of detection (LOD) and lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) for this assay is 15 IU/mL. Results less than the quantitative range of the assay will be reported as "HCV RNA detected, less than 15 IU/mL".

During the next 12 weeks the Doctor was evasive to the questions I asked about " what is undetectable:?I could never get a straight answer now going through all my other tests I find this on the very first test! :

HCV RT-PCR, Quant (Graph)

Hepatitis C Quantitation 761,240 IU/mL 03

HCV log10 5.882 log10 IU/mL

What that means is the Doctor used me because the very first test showed my viral load was 761,240 IU/mL 03

which actually meant I had no HEPC in the first place. It had already been cured with the BHT. I ultimately found out that under 800,000 IU/ml is UNdetectable.

The moral to my story is know your numbers to what is cured. Many Gastroenterologist Doctors do not know the numbers of SVR ...Don't be fooled

Adebayo, encapsulated products are rarely pure. Sand (silica, silicon dioxide) is added to help powder flow. Anti-caking agents can be added. The capsules are generally lubricated with magnesium stearate to prevent breakage. So if you want pure, buy bulk powdered or granular BHT. And make your own capsules if you cannot stand the taste.

In answering another question, I mentioned several ways to get BHT through national boundaries and customs inspections. One, have it transshipped to a friend in another country, who then repackages it and sends it on to you. Two, have your friend melt the BHT and cast it in a hobby mold into a bird, candle or figurine. Three, put the BHT into a zip-lock plastic bag, squeeze the air out and flatten it as thin as possible. Then, double-bag it and put it inside of a birthday card, book or magazine.

The last possibility is to buy it as a bulk chemical through a laboratory supplier in your country for some artistic, artisan or commercial use. BHT can be used to make candles, clean and store firearms, delay hardening of paint, stabilize gasoline for storage, make leather, preserve foods and herbs, and who knows what else. Laboratory chemicals may be high priced, but they are usually low volume. Commercial chemicals are the other way around: low prices and big quantities. I hope this helps.

Dear Oscar,

I too appreciate your efforts to help others, even when you are in pain and suffering yourself. It is exasperating that you work hard and help so many and the cure is not recognized. I have loved ones that have been told there is "No cure" for this or that and the doctors just give them more drugs. And for these same conditions, I read on Earth Clinic of people curing these very conditions. I share your exasperation that often simple and inexpensive supplements, herbs, etc. will help or cure a serious condition and it is not recognized. (And people keep on suffering! )

So, perhaps the world will not know the cure you know. But, for the one person at a time that feels better because you helped them, it is still worth it. So, I too thank you for caring!

Hi Oscar,

I never seen a latest post from you , but i can tell it's true all you have said about BHT, I want to thank you personally for sharing this treatment from my heart ..from positive anti HCV to negative anti HCV ,at first I don't really believe that it can achieve negative anti body as medically inclined I know that's is forever copy in the blood but I was wrong ..following your instruction I was surprised to test 3 times and it was non reactive , so I decided to share it and further study on this amazing supplement..

Hello Alex, it seems like you are another success story for BHT use to cure HBV. I am also HBV poistive and just started BHT treatment 1 week ago. I had joint acjes and extreme fatigue before I started on BHT a week ago. I started with 250mg daily. The joint aches have gone but I find the fatigue is still there if not worse on some days and I have also found I am sweating alot. Did you expirience any side effects at all?

Dear Oscar,

I couldn't thank you enough for your research on BHT and for providing people, including me, with very useful information.

I was diagnosed with Chronic Hep B in February 2014.

My PCR test (viral load) result last February (2014) was 800 but on February 2015, after one year, the amount of the virus in my blood was up to 1,200.

I consumed one 250mg of BHT for one month and one week, with water on an empty stomach, twice a day which is 500 mg of BHT per day.

My viral load with BHT after one month and one week was 860 according to my test results from yesterday. That's 30 percent less than it was in my previous blood test two months ago.

I really hope that BHT treatment is working for me! I certainly intend to maintain BHT treatment with periodic blood tests.

I started with 250 mg per day for 3 days and then I raised the amount to 500 mg of BHT per day.

I weight 54 kg.

My liver function levels are all normal.

While consuming BHT I haven't experienced any side effects at all.

When I started my BHT treatment I stopped taking Milk Thistle, Colloidal silver, Turmeric, vitamin D3, Licorice root, Pukka - Vitalise, reishi shiitake maitake mushroom extract, probiotics, and Phyllanthus.

I am still taking Armour Thyroid 60 mg due to a low thyroid hormone levels.

Since Pukka - Vitalise helped me to feel better, do you think that I can consume this product with BHT? What about probiotics?

Does it matter from what company the BHT product is purchased? I ordered my BHT from Amazon - Wholesale Nutrition LLC.

Thank you again for everything you've done to help me and many others who are desperate to find a treatment for our disease.

(sorry for my English mistakes)

Dear Sarah from Israel, I so very much value your responses. You have a doctor interested in this BHT treatment. As far as I know, and I did do a web search: There is NO known CURE for hepatitis B. There is at least one treatment discussed that seems to help many people, but NO true cure is mentioned.

As I have discussed previously: The BHT did CURE me of both hepatitis C and B. The people at the VA told me I now test negative with the ANTIBODIES tests for both of those viral liver infections.

In fact, I was accused of lying about ever being infected. But the records from the BOSTON VAMC clearly indicated I tested positive the numerous the times I was tested for hepatitis B and C. Also I was diagnosed with liver failure as a result of a hepatitis C infection.

Also: I paid to have myself tested about 16 months later by a private [ non-government doctor ]. I still tested POSITIVE for both infections at that time with the antibodies tests. I was hoping for a NEGATIVE tests results but did not get one. This was well into 1998. I was hoping for a true cure at that time.

Keep in mind: I WAS taking BHT on a DAILY basis for those 16 months.

It was in 2006 that I tested NEGATIVE with said hepatitis C and B antibodies tests for the first time.

I was tested again in or about 2001 when I was tested once again for both infections. I had moved and was now being seen by the VAMC Syracuse, New York and again tested Negative for both infections and was accused of lying. But I guided my VA health provider back to the Boston VA medical records.

I guess they were concerned I would file a false disability claim. I never ever did. The BHT cured me of both infections and I never ever filed a disability claim as to any form of hepatitis. I had received 24 blood transfusions as part of my treatment for a really bad gunshot wound to and through my abdomen and back. Most of my liver and all of my right kidney are gone and half of my large intestine also. Part of a rib and more. Said blood transfusions were a very common source of hepatitis C and B infections back in 1968.

What is important is: There is NO known cure for hepatitis B from all I have read. But I do say: BHT is that CURE. And it is not ONLY hepatitis B but hepatitis C also along with the many herpes viruses and possibly AIDS and other lipid coated viruses.

If I can get even one Medical Doctor to pay attention it would help a LOT. I need an MD`s help with this endeavor.

From what you said: You have an MD paying attention. I no longer even desire any recognition for my efforts. If an MD can get BHT recognized officially as the effective treatment it is: My goal will be achieved.

Back to you:

The progress your HBV viral load counts indicate using BHT as a treatment for hepatitis B are significant. We do not really know what that viral load count was at the time you first began the BHT treatment. Only that said viral load count was increasing. And that it went down by 30% in 5 weeks. In my opinion: You have turned the corner and this infection is not only under control, but well on it`s to NO VIRUS DETECTED. But it takes years of this BHT treatment to get to a true CURE.

I am tired Sarah. I will end this posting at this time and for that reason. I am not only old, but live in a very damaged, pain filled body. I can NOT keep this effort up FOREVER.

Stay in touch. There is a LOT more I know about this treatment such as the different WHO reports and on and on. Those WHO reports discuss in detail how BHT is metabolized and such. Things like that....Oscar

Dear " Mama to Many ". Thank you so very much for your very kind remarks. I have followed your postings and share your concern for others. You take on MANY issues and treatments with the required concern. My focus is on viral hepatitis and BHT as the treatment. You take on so much more.

That is a LOT to do. My love to you. MAMA MIA!!! ...Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 05/19/2015

Dear Sarah Israel, Your understanding of viral hepatitis is the same as mine as regards treatments currently available to Medical Doctors: There are very effective treatments now available for hepatitis C but NOT hepatitis B.

Look, I very much understand your MD`s reluctance to put her name on the promotion of the use of BHT as a treatment for ANYTHING really. MD`s have to be very careful about such things, for all the obvious reasons. I was hoping: That if you successfully get to NO VIRUS DETECTED in that viral load count test [ not a sure thing and you are not there yet ] that she would consider filing a report of your case history as an anonymous patient with one of the medical journals as an interesting and noteworthy event. But we are there yet like I said. Of course I very much hope that is only a matter of time.

Also, getting to NO VIRUS DETECTED is NOT the same as being truly CURED as I have discussed a number of times in this forum and other forums.

It takes years of continued BHT treatment to reach a TRUE CURE. This is because: It is the liver cells that are infected with hepatitis B and C and the other forms of viral hepatitis. Those viral load count tests are a BLOOD test. When a person gets to NO VIRUS DETECTED it means the BHT treatment is working effectively by destroying the different hepatitis virons in the bloodstream and thereby preventing uninfected liver cells from becoming infected. And liver cells live about 200 days and it does follow: That if you can prevent any uninfected liver cells from becoming infected with the use of BHT eventually a TRUE CURE will occur. There will eventually be NO infected liver cells. For me this took at least 2 years and very likely more than 2 years.

But eventually I did and still do test NEGATIVE with those hepatitis B and C antibodies tests. I know this because I was accused of lying about ever being infected by one of my so called VA health care providers. She told me: Once infected you will ALWAYS test POSITIVE. But the VA keeps records of EVERYTHING. And I told her to check back to 1997 and the records will be there. I had been tested and retested and was POSITIVE for both back then. Sure enough those records were there. She told me: I must have made a " SPONTANIOUS RECOVERY " for both of those infections. But even she admitted to being confused about it all.

So to wind up this discussion: It would be NOTEWORTHY and of interest to the medical community if you could do the same with a well documented case history with the use of BHT to treat hepatitis B. That is a big if at this time....Oscar

Dear Oscar,

How are you?

I have some good news - My viral load continues to fall. In 3 month of using BHT my viral load decreased in 55.8%

Below are details of my blood tests and the results.

I got sick on February 2014.



viral load: 8.0*10^2




viral load:1.0*10^3




viral load: 1.2*10^3



I started taking BHT 500 mg per day



viral load: 8.6*10^2


28.3% percent decrease in viral load





38.3% percent decrease in viral load

55.8% A cumulative decline in three months

Thank you for everything!

BHT is butylated hydroxytoluene. This compound has proven to be an effective treatment for both hepatitis C and B. The recommended dosage is: one 250mg capsule per day with a gulp of water on an empty stomach for people who weigh 130 pounds or less. For those who weigh more you may need more. Start out with the 250mg of BHT per day for one week. Then if no adverse reactions are experienced go to two 250mg capsules per day. One dose in the morning and one at night.

It is important to keep this treatment simple. By that I mean to NOT mix it with other supplements. Many supplements make this treatment NOT work. BHT can and will combine with many other supplements by way of peptide bonds making the treatment NOT work. After many years of following the feedback provided the ONLY supplement I consider alright to take is a standard multivitamin and mineral supplement. And that is optional and NOT part of the treatment.

To effectively treat a viral infection the metabolites of BHT have to be small enough to penetrate those bi-layered lipid coatings. When BHT combines with large molecules including: vitamin B12, milk thistle extracts, and many other supplements the BHT metabolites are FAR too large to penetrate said lipid coatings. This makes it so the BHT treatment does NOT work.

Here is a link to a company that sells BHT in 250mg capsules. 500 capsules for 30 dollars. This company believes in BHT as do I and provides additional information for those interested here:


There have been a number of recent posters in this forum with questions about hepatitis B and C and BHT also. I hope my response or posting is helpful for you people....Oscar

Update for BHT.

I had to quit using BHT because it made my Peripheral Neuropathy worse.

I took the Holkira Pac treatment for Hep-C and my viral load was over 9000,000 + and after 2 weeks in it was 15. At the end of 12 weeks it was undetectable. Now I was told that I could not take my supplements R-ALA, BHT, Chanca Piedra, and Kratom for pain because it would reduce the effectiveness of the Hep-C treatment.

I found that the treatment cured my Mellitus Diabetes and took the pain from Peripheral Neuropathy away. It seemed to improve a lot of my ailments and the liver ache every time I ate. The treatment was $60,000 and covered by health care. I have to get two more VL tests three months apart to show a cure.

My fibrosis is 2.75 and has begun to heal. I am sleeping better now and the weird dreams are subsiding. I can now enjoy ice cream and other sweets. My urine is back to normal and my dry skin problem is clearing up. I had red spots all over my face and those are disappearing. It feels very good to be free of Hep-C after 40years.

I feel it very important for any one taking BHT or any Hep-C treatment to be aware that mixing it with any other supplements can cause it to fail. Don't mess with a good thing and wait until the treatment is over before consuming supplements.

I did find that Melatonin a sleep aid also helps to heal the liver, check it out in pubmed.com.

Thanks earthclinic for all your help.

I tried BHT a few years ago but the dose was too much and I had to stop it. I went back on BHT 3 weeks ago. I am 64, a male. HCV since about 1982. No scarring that I know of.

OK, my viral load was 5.4 million late last fall 2014. I think that's the most my VL ever was. It usually seems to be about 500,000.

3 weeks into Harvoni in Feb 2015 it was 97, then 4 weeks later I was undetectable.
(I wish I had my current VL when I began Harvoni.)

Several weeks post Harvoni, in late April 2015, I had a VL again that was 782,040. I relapsed.

In 9/3/15 my VL had came down by over 33%. I had lost 322,668 points and my VL was down to 459,372. How do I think that may have happened? Maybe because I quit taking 400 IU of Vitamin E.

OK, my VL was tested again last week on 10/1/15 (after being on 175 mg of BHT daily for 2 weeks) and it's even lower now but not as low as I hoped. Its now 420,000. I lost 39,372 points in 4 weeks. I've been using oil of oregano and BHT every day. I take 175 mg of BHT a day, 1st thing in the morning. Was taking BHT by itself but have taken it with coconut oil and oregano oil the last few days. I'm trying to see which way makes it work the best for me.

Is this good news?

A few days after going on BHT on 9/16/15, I felt really good one day. My moods seemed better than they've been in 25 years, but it didn't last. But I have a feeling it may return if I stay the course. My sleep seems better on BHT and I seem more together in some ways. I feel some fatigue, which I thought may have been due to "die off" of virus or some other lipid coated something or other. I felt some light liver stress the first week or so but that has gone away.

Dear Jos [ AZ ], I consider your response an important one because you also seem to have cured genital warts along with at least some success with BHT as a treatment for hepatitis C.

This genital warts condition is very troubling for all who suffer with it and BHT is the ONLY thing I know of that has actually made the warts go away and not return. There are topical treatments that work as well as they do. But that is NOT at all the same as being free of these warts.

In my opinion based on your feedback and that of others: BHT can in at least some cases destroy the virus that causes these warts.

The same is true for some people who have hepatitis C. For reasons unknown to me the BHT treatment works very well for many but not all people. Keeping the treatment simple is what seems to work best.

Also, I agree with your doctor. Being " undetectable " in a blood test does NOT mean you are cured of hepatitis C or B. It only means the treatment is working by destroying the virons in your bloodstream. It is your liver that is infected with viral hepatitis. But if you can keep your blood free of intact hepatitis virons eventually a true cure can and will be achieved. This is because ALL liver cells are renewed about every 200 days. So if you prevent new liver cells from becoming infected a true cure can be achieved and has been by myself and others.

I have NO opinion on these harmoni pills. I know NOTHING about them.

But like I said: Keeping the BHT treatment simple seems to work best. So if you do NOT need these harmoni pills stop taking them and let us see if there is improvement or not....Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 09/08/2015

Hello Jos [ AZ ], I have heard nothing but good things about these new hepatitis C drugs including " Harvoni ". Except for the price of course. I strongly recommend NOT using BHT while taking the harvoni.

But I do think restarting the BHT treatment AFTER and only after the harvoni treatment is completed would be an added measure of protection against any possible relapse. Maybe a year or so of one dose of 250mg to 350mg of BHT per day would make sure your liver is truly free of all infected cells.

I still take BHT every other day to protect myself against the many viruses BHT seems to destroy. I used to take BHT every day but cut back somewhat. I never catch colds and such for whatever that is worth.

You did mention the BHT seems to have cured you of genital warts. That makes 4 people in this forum who have reported BHT cured them of genital warts that I am aware of. You, Fatchabrute, Larry, and Teru.

Anyway, thanks for reporting into this forum Jos. Feedback is so very important to this forum. How else can people find out what works or does not work ? This of course goes for all the treatments discussed here. The BHT does NOT work for everyone. But it does seem worth a try for many people if used with care for many viral infections. Take Care, ...Oscar

In my severe condition especially in the past 4-5 yrs, I have had considerable pain in my bones & joints and have been near needing prescription pain meds but fortunately found relief with magnet therapy. I got my hands on the strongest magnet I could find and have experienced very positive results which allowed normalcy and sufficient sleep. Magnet bed pads are also very good for pain as they work so well while your sleeping, that's when healing and repair occurs.

Also, have you tried the Epsom Salts baths? They are very good for both pain and nerves.

You must come back here and update us on your condition and don't worry about posting for others for now. You have many friends here and we want you to get better.

Take good care, Oscar.

Though the contents of your threads didn't apply to me, seeing familiar names leave the board are like having friends leave.

Like you, I have frequented EC for many, many years and I will miss seeing your name here.

I hope that you will find relief for your pain. You have helped so many, it hurts me that you're suffering. Life just 'aint' fair.

Thank you, too, for your unselfish, intrepid service to our country. I am only sorry that serving it left you in such physical pain.

Wishing you all the best. You will be missed.

Dear Oscar,

My name is Sarah and I live in Israel. I was diagnosed with hepatitis B in February 2014. My pcr test result last February was 800 but after one year the amount of the virus in my blood was up to 1200.

I started to use BHT 2.5 weeks ago on an empty stomach (250 mg in the morning and 250 mg in the evening) and I'd love to share with the forum the effect of BHT on the virus load in my case.

Thank you! Sarah

Dear Sarah from Israel, It seems to me the BHT treatment is working fairly well. I like to see those viral load counts go down even faster, but a 30% drop in said viral load count in 5 weeks is not bad. And your liver function tests are in the NORMAL or HEALTHY ranges. This is all GOOD news.

Also: Continue taking any required doctor proscribed treatments you need. But I have no way of knowing how the other supplements you are taking might be effecting the treatment.

And for a 54kg =120 pound person: The 250mg of BHT twice a day=500mg of BHT per day should be plenty enough of the BHT.

In conclusion: Try and stop taking any and all supplements you do not need to take. The standard multi-vitamin and mineral supplements along with vitamin C do NOT degrade the BHT treatment. Many other supplements do. You are showing significant improvement so there is no reason to get discouraged. Keeping the BHT treatment as simple as possible is consistently what works best.

Thank you very much for your update for your use of BHT to treat hepatitis B. This feedback is vitally important to this forum. I wish more people would provide said feedback....Oscar

Dear Oscar

Thank you for your post. I read it with great interest, and I appreciate very much your sharing of your knowledge and experience with me and other people as well!

I'm so glad you're healed from both Hepatitis C and B by BHT treatment! It's really amazing, since there is no known cure for hepatitis B (as much as I know they recently found cure for Hepatitis C).

Reading your responses made me realize that viral disease is a journey that one should never have to take alone.

Yes my doctor is very interested in BHT treatment! She said that she had more patients with Hepatitis B, and she was really curious to know whether my viral load continues to reduce.

I am not sure yet if my doctor will agree that her name will be mentioned in public as BHT treatment supporter, but she said that she'd be happy for me if I'll cure my Hepatitis B by consuming BHT, and she said she'll cooperate with me in every way. My doctor is very intelligent and open-minded person.

I wish you health and wellness, and I hope that you'll continue to accompany me in my healing process by BHT.

Best regards,

Dear Oscar

Thank you for replying.

My doctor is a very special and open minded person and I really hope that she will inform the medical community about BHT, in addition to her enthusiasm due to my test results.

My doctor ordered me periodic blood tests in order to check progress on my load reduction. I intend to take the blood tests in a week or so, and I will soon post the results of my tests. After being tested, I'm going to talk to my doctor about my test results and about my BHT treatment specifically, if my viral load continues to fall.

I'll let you know about her response, and what we agreed on the continuation of my BHT treatment.

As for myself I surely intend to continue to take BHT as much as necessary to reach a true cure.

Oscar, I am sorry you were accused of all sorts of false accusations. I totally believe you!

Thank god I found your posts in this forum and I can't thank you enough for the life-saving information you have shared with me and with others.

I would love to share along with medical documents the course of my disease and my healing process, if progress is made in reducing my viral load by BHT treatment.

Unfortunately my English is not so good and it takes me a long time to write any post..

Best regards, Sarah

Dear Sarah, [ Israel]: You are doing ground breaking research about the use of BHT as a treatment for hepatitis B. Your detailed postings and updates are so very important.

As far as I know: There is NO other drug or compound that can actually cure the hepatitis B infection.

Things look good so far. The pattern seems to be somewhat different than the use of BHT to treat a hepatitis C infection. A more gradual reduction in that viral load count.

This is the same as the use of BHT to treat the different herpes viruses infections. A gradual improvement as opposed to a dramatic decrease in those viral loads.

You may wish to try an additional 250mg of BHT per day in hopes of getting that viral load count down to UNDETECTABLE more rapidly. You can ALWAYS go back to the 500mg of BHT per day if any problems occur at this higher dosage of BHT.

This focus on BHT as a treatment for hepatitis B is NEW to me. The focus used to be on BHT as a treatment for hepatitis C. But the drug companies did come up with some VERY EFFECTIVE treatments for hepatitis C recently. Those treatments are quite expensive and do NOT seem to work for hepatitis B. So this is important research.

You are my hero in all this. You care enough to update this forum with your progress. Thank you Sarah, ...Oscar

Dear Sierarrafrica [ Sierra Leone ]: Please know there is NO reason for you to be afraid. One of every three people alive today is infected with hepatitis B. Most of those people will NEVER suffer serious health issues as a result of this infection.

But some will.

1. Continue and complete the treatment your doctor prescribed for you as prescribed.

2. If you choose to give the BHT treatment a try : Do so AFTER and only after you have completed the prescribed treatment as prescribed.

It is NOT good to be mixing the BHT treatment with any other treatment.

If, after completing the treatment your doctor prescribed you choose to try the BHT treatment:

The recommended dosage is 250mg of BHT per day with water only on an empty stomach for people who 125 pounds or less. For those who weigh more than that: Two 250mg capsules of BHT may be required = 500mg of BHT per day. For people who weigh 200 or more pounds some more BHT may be required. These are rough guidelines only. But it does give you something to start with regarding dosage.

The ONLY supplements I think are OK to take with the BHT treatment are: one standard multi-vitamin and mineral supplement per day and up 1,000mg of vitamin C per day.

That is it. Please do NOT ask me how this that or some other supplement will effect the BHT treatment because I truly do NOT know.

But again: Please do not be frightened. Chances are VERY good you will NOT suffer serious health issues because of hepatitis B. And recent reports along with some of the older ones do indicate that BHT is an effective treatment for hepatitis B if taken as I have discussed....Oscar

Dear Jparkin48 [ North Carolina ]. I know of NO reason for you NOT to give the BHT treatment a try. I have often discussed why achieving a NO VIRUS DETECTED result in those viral load count tests does NOT mean a cure has been achieved. Those are blood tests that do indicate the treatment being used is destroying the viral structures IN THE BLOODSTREAM ONLY. Said treatments including the BHT treatment do NOT uninfect a living infected liver cell. Said treatments, when working the way they are supposed to do keep the bloodstream free of said intact virons but have NO effect on infected liver cells.

But: Because EVERY liver cell is a NEW CELL every 300 days or so: If you can keep the blood free of intact virons NO NEW LIVER CELLS BECOME INFECTED. And a true cure is possible.

I always thought : The BHT treatment would be and is a great follow up treatment for the conventional treatments ALONG with being the PRIMARY treatment all by itself.

This usually takes at least 2 years of said BHT treatment: 250mg to 500mg of BHT per day with water on an empty stomach. Possibly more BHT if you weigh more than 200 pounds. If adverse effects are experienced LOWER THE DOSAGE of BHT used.

Thin and very lean people are those most likely to experience said adverse effects using BHT.

It is the ANTIBODIES TESTS that determines when a TRUE CURE has been achieved. When you test NEGATIVE with said antibodies test for the type of viral hepatitis you are infected with that means YOU ARE CURED.

As stated before by me: Many doctors seem unaware of this truly simple concept. If you still have hepatitis C and or B antibodies: You are still infected and likely to relapse....Oscar

Thanks for the communication, not intersested in degrees, just results.. how did you come to try bht? did you know someone else who had used it? did it take a lot of trial and error to get it right? I am familiar with bht, but only as a preservative thanks for your help jparkin

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 04/13/2015

Hello Jparkin48, The people who first discovered that BHT deactivates lipid coated viruses are: Snipes, Person, Keith, and Cupp. Their ground breaking research was first published in the journal Science volume 188, pages 64-66 in 1975. Titled " Butylated Hydroxytoluene Inactivates Lipid-containing Viruses ".

I read about their research in Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw`s book: "The Life Extension Companion ". Pearson and Shaw discuss the use of BHT to treat the different herpes viruses in that book. But they do advise people with liver disease to NOT use BHT.

But back in 1997 there was only the first of the interferon drugs available for treating hepatitis C. The results were poor at best as was explained to me by the VA doctor I was seeing.

So, after learning that hepatitis C was very much a lipid coated virus I figured: What have I got to lose given interferon`s poor tract record along with it`s many severe adverse effects ?

So I bought some BHT and began using it with amazingly good results....Oscar

Oscar, Don't shortchange yourself...There are many people through the ages that have accomplished many scientific achievements without a formal education...You chose to do deep research on BHT and it appears you have been successful...How many universities in the world teach about healing with BHT? Or even know about healing with BHT? Or would recommend it before drugs?

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 04/13/2015

Dear Alan from Charleston, SC : One thing you are taking that might be screwing up the BHT treatment is " Prilosec " also know as " Omeprazole ". This drug or compound is known to interact with certain medications. So if you wish to keep working the BHT treatment STOP taking " Priosec " and let`s see if we can get the sort of results required to CURE hepatitis C.

There was some small improvement using BHT, but to achieve a cure that viral load count needs to come down rapidly.

I took a look at a model of the PRILOSEC molecule and it has three rings one of which hangs out there a good bit. This molecule may very well combine with the metabolites of BHT and the combined structure would be TOO large to penetrate those viral lipid coatings. This would make all such combined structures TOO LARGE to penetrate those viral lipid coatings.

So if possible stop taking " PRILOSEC " and let's see if we can get the BHT treatment working the way it is supposed to work....Oscar

Oscar, I feel that I can speak for many others on this forum when I say "Thank You for all that You Do" helping offer options to those of us who are battling this nasty virus.

And, I got pretty good news today. I have continued with the BHT treatment that I described in my earlier post. Last check for viral load count was 2,028,000 middle of last December, 2014. I was just rechecked two weeks ago. My viral load is now 1,202,000. About 40% lower in 4 months!

I feel that we are making progress. I certainly intend to maintain this treatment with periodic blood tests to check progress on load reduction. Probably about every 6 months, because the tests are ridiculously expensive when I have my family doctor order them. And unfortunately my insurance company leaves a lot to be desired. Do you know of any less expensive sources for this test procedure?

Oscar, Thanks Again

Alan from Charleston, SC

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 04/13/2015

Dear Mr. Ree, Thank you so very much for taking the time to post your very kind to me response. I do try very hard to make this treatment work for those interested in trying it.

I know I let some people down. I fail to pick up on what they are taking that is screwing the treatment up. That is why insist on keeping the treatment as simple as possible. I am not an encyclopedia of organic compounds. There are thousands of them.

I follow your postings with interest and know you try hard to help people. Take Care My Friend, ...Oscar

Hi Alan,

I order my own blood tests through this site:


No prescription needed.

There is a sale going on right now, but the regular prices still are better than the costs of my doctor and hospital. I also like the freedom to order what I want to see. I don't know if the tests you require are available, but I have had good luck with this for several years. The blood is drawn at a local Lab Corp, and they both email and mail me the results. I then forward that to my doctor and I am always prepared before I go in for my appointment. If you click on a specific test, it will tell you exactly what it will show. There is a membership fee, but it is still less than what I would pay for the tests otherwise. I've found it's best to call them and ask for the best price for membership, which is often lower than advertised. I hope you find this as useful as I have.

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 04/15/2015

Dear Alan from Charleston SC, Well, it does seem some very real progress is occurring at long last with your BHT treatment.

Please save all your medical records in a file somewhere. I use those manila type folders and file them in chronological order keeping the latest reports in front. Sadly I lost my records at some point in time after many moves under duress. I think I have them somewhere with me but can no longer find them. Anyway these records are valuable to you and should be saved.

I am not sure what to make of your case history so to speak. It appears to me: That the BHT brought your infection under control at first, but without a substantial lowering of that viral load count. The infection was not getting worse and showed some small improvement. At the very least the infection was NOT raging out of control.

And that now, at long last, some very real improvement is occurring. Perhaps your body has finally healed itself from the damaging effects of that earlier treatment you discussed and is now able to make some very real improvement with the use of BHT. I surely do hope so.

Please do stop taking " Prilosec " if you can get by without it. I do think the prilosec was degrading the BHT treatment.

Anyway, this is very encouraging news. Also, as another responder reported the organization " The Life Extension Foundation " does offer blood tests at reduced prices if available in your area.

Take Care My Friend, ...Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 04/16/2015

Dear Alan from Charleston, I am NOT an MD or anything remotely equal to a medical doctor. From what you have stated you have a real need for the medication your doctor prescribed for you called " Prilosec ". I did look into the alternative medications you listed. They are all as large or larger than prilosec as a molecule.

On the upside: Your latest viral load count is much better than before. Close to half of the previous test results. Your latest test results put you close to what is generally accepted as in the LOW range of 1,000,000 or less on or in said viral load tests for hepatitis C.

So, in conclusion: Continue the BHT treatment just like you have been and take the doctor prescribed " Prilosec " as needed. You may wish to try and cut back on the prilosec somewhat. But if problems occur go back to the dosage as prescribed.

Are your liver function tests within the NORMAL ranges or not ? Because if they are you seem to be doing OK as is and making some very real progress as to that viral load count. The hepatitis C infection is not only in check, but very real progress is indicated.

I used to have a " BHT CURES GROUP ". And people such as you with other conditions being treated often did take longer for the BHT treatment to work for whatever that is worth.

And if needs be the new treatments as expensive as they are, are NOW available. I sincerely hope you can and are beating this hepatitis C infection with the BHT treatment....Oscar

Better But With Side Effects

Question for all who are using BHT for as a cure for Hepatitis C.

I have been using BHT for about a year now as a treatment for my HCV. I am taking 750 mg a day on an empty stomach per Oscar's recommendations.

As I stated in previous posts, my viral load has been substantially reduced as a result of the BHT treatment and I am hoping for even better numbers (hoping for zero) when I get my viral load tested again in a couple of months.

HERE is my question to any and all who are using BHT for HVC. Is anyone experiencing problems with short term memory, focus or concentration? Before I found and started the BHT treatment, I had went through a doctor prescribed Interferon and Ribovirin treatment, which acted like poison to my body. It was horrible and I know it caused problems with memory, focus and concentration, but that was about two years ago. I am trying to determine if my current problems are a long term result of the Interferon and Ribovirin OR could be being caused as a side effect of the BHT. Does anyone else feel they may be experiencing these problems as a result of taking the BHT? Thank You.

BHT, to my knowledge is like a semi-synthetic antioxidant and is therefore relatively free of severe and harmful side effects. I have been using BHT almost daily for 3yrs for chronic active viral hep with all good results and no bad side effects whatsoever to note.

As for the pharm antivirals, there appears to be many bad side effects as you have noted. For more info go here http://www.drugs.com/ribasphere.html

As for memory & concentration, here is a list of natural herbs and nutrients that will help.

  • Gingko Biloba
  • Acetyle L Carnitine
  • Taurine
  • Vinpocitine
  • Choline/Lecithin
  • Omega 3 fatty Acids like Fish, Krill, and Flax Oil
  • Fat Soluble antioxidants Selenium/Vit-E/CoQ10 (all support and protect the Omega 3's)

I got my BHT in the mail yesterday took my first pill this morning on a empty stomach.

My question is, should I wait and then take my blood pressure meds? or can I take them at the same time.

I have HepC 1a and my levels have been pretty steady for 5 years. The doctors do not want to start me on any treatments and I hope this will prove to be a good alternative.

Thanks for all the great info!

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 11/13/2014

Dear Devo from LA, Always take BHT by itself with a gulp of water only on an empty stomach for best results. Play it safe and wait at least one hour before taking any other medication or supplement.

This is a very good recommendation for taking most if not all medications and or supplements. Totally unpredictable chemical reactions can and will occur in the fairly acidic environment of the stomach [ PH value = about 1 ] in said stomach.

So the answer is: Do NOT take BHT at the same time as blood pressure medications....Oscar

Dear Oscar,

When taking BHT for Hepatitis C are there any foods that I should avoid or that will make it not work? Is it ok to take a multi vitamin with it? Is coffee ok to drink? and what are the side effects of it? Finally, I weigh about 120 pounds, how much bht should I be taking daily? Thank you.

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 07/28/2014

Every liver cell lives about 200 days. If no uninfected cells become infected it is at least theoretically possible there will be no scar tissue if the use of BHT prevents uninfected cells from becoming infected. It is more complex than than that. Advanced cirhosis creates special or other problems. But minor scarring should resolve itself if the BHT treatment works the way it is supposed to....Oscar

Hello Oscar,

I have been declared "Virus undetected" in 32 days on the current drug protocol...

I then brought up your statement of "It isn't cured unitl you register Non detectable antibodies." The very rude doctor, is all aspects of her practice, told me, "if I have any disease I will always have antibodies."

Would you please elaborate on your statement as I have follow up visits with this person. My visits with her are the only side effect of the drug...Thank you and God Bless.

Dear sexymom from Nigeria, I ran a BHT cures group for about 2 years. If you have found a supplier for BHT go with what is available as to what dose the capsules are. There were 4 people I know of who had dramatic improvement for hepatitis B using the BHT and that includes me. Those who did best used the simple treatment I have discussed. One of those 4 people did also use CHIANCA PIEDRA with LESS dramatic results. The group`s main focus was hepatitis C. So there were NOT many people using BHT for hepatitis B. The group members who did the best stuck with the simple BHT treatment though like I said one member did use chianca peidra also. One member who did very well was from an African country where malaria was also one his infections. So it got confusing with him. Was it malaria that caused his temporary liver problem or hepatitis B ? The last report I got from him was that: He did very well with the simple BHT treatment. He was/is Daniel also known as fanny. He went the UK to see doctors there and was told he had " the liver of a newborn baby " meaning his liver was functioning very well and showed NO sign of disease.

As far as weight gain goes the BHT if anything seems to reduce a person`s appetite. It is also a mild stimulant for most people. About the same as having a cup of coffee. I SAY keep the BHT treatment simple for best results. One or two capsules per day with water on an empty stomach taken with a gulp of water....Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 08/16/2014

Great hearing from you " sexymom from Nigeria ". This is the way BHT is supposed to work. Fast and effective. This is how the BHT worked for me. I was very sick with hepatitis C in 1997. But with the use of BHT I was feeling normal in about one week and tested NEGATIVE with the HCV RNA test in about one month. But it does take at least a year or more to get to a negative with the HCV antibodies test. The sign of a true cure. Please keep taking the BHT just like you have been. I very much recall people who got well and stopped taking the BHT and RELAPSED. Got sick again. Please do NOT make that mistake. You still have a very many HCV infected liver cells. I KNOW what I am talking about. It took me over two years to get that NEGATIVE with the HCV antibodies test. Again it is great hearing from you.

Also, please inform your fellow Nigerians where or how you managed to buy BHT because Nigerians keep telling me they have a serious problem obtaining BHT. God Bless You " Sexymom " ...Oscar

I have Hep c, started BHT 2 wks ago. All body aches are gone but I've had a headache. Is this a side effect of BHT?

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 09/21/2014

Dear Coryn [ Illinois ]. It is possible that BHT could cause headaches. How much do you weigh and how much BHT are you taking per day ? If these headaches continue or get worse you may need to lower the dosage of BHT you are taking per day. Of course we want to effectively treat this infection. But we do NOT want to cause adverse effects. That is why I always advise lowering the dosage of BHT if adverse effects are experienced. Some times but NOT always these adverse effects will go away. If said adverse effects persist I do strongly recommend lowering the dosage of BHT used....Oscar

Posted by Caryn (Illinois) on 09/22/2014

I weigh 145, and I'm 54. I'm only taking 250 mg 1 at morning and 1 at night. I cut back to 1 a day to see if head ache would stop. It didn't. You're right, some side effects do go away. Should I continue?

This is my only hope. A $1,000 a day for Sovaldi is out of my reach.

Thanks Oscar

Greatly appreciate your sharing knowledge for these healing protocols Oscar. My question:
Would Iodine/Lugols interfere with BHT if taken hours apart from BHT?


Posted by Tony (Tn, Usa) on 02/08/2014

Thanks Oscar for your updated protocol for viral hepatitis. I have a few questions for ya. I'm currently under the anti-candida protocol provided by Bill here at EC. Have been on & off the protocol for over 2 years running now. Just don't seem to make much progress.

I have multiple health areas of concern including HSV(Herpes Simplex Virus) for almost 20 years now. I've never tried to treat the herpes on a consistent basis. In other words, I've not taken anything regularly for this condition through the years. I've NEVER taken any prescription meds for it. The only things I've used to treat it have been L-Lysine and Oil of Oregano.

I know there has been viral replication through the years in my body. I now have Hashimito's Thyrioditis along with candida overgrowth and who knows what other conditions not diagnosed. I did go through an extensive treatment for a 2 month period to try and kill the herpes virus but didn't work because I still get outbreaks. I used Oil of Oregano in high doses and L-Lysine in low doses during this timeframe.

In your opinion, would BHT be an option in trying to get the herpes simplex virus under control? I figure that if BHT works for hepatitis then why wouldn't it work with HSV since it's also a virus. I also have fatty liver disease(non alcoholic type) as well. I'm taking most of the anti-candida remedies suggested by Bill. I'm not on the iodine and a few others but take several of the remedies.

What would you suggest as the best route to go here? Should I continue with the anti-candida protocol before trying to kill the HSV? That's even if BHT will work for HSV. I do notice that I couldn't take any other supplements(other than yours listed) per your recommendations if using the BHT. I would have to stop a lot of anti-candida remedies in order to do this. Please let me know! Thanks and God Bless!

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 02/09/2014

Dear Tony, For sure BHT has proven to be an effective treatment for ALL the different herpes viruses. I find it somewhat ironic that you asked this question. Because BHT was first being promoted as a treatment for the different herpes viruses back in the 1980s. It was me who tried BHT as a treatment for both hepatitis C and B back in 1997 with amazing results. I also used to have a variant of oral herpes. Since I started using BHT back in 1997 these oral herpes outbreaks cleared up also. As time went by these herpes outbreaks gradually disappeared and I have not had one for well over 10 years now.

You will find different opinions on how best to use BHT to treat herpes viruses. The take the BHT with a gulp of water method on an empty stomach method worked very well for me in the relatively small dosages I discuss.

Here are some others who have had very good results using this method:

  • I know that it must be frustrating for those of you that post regularly to know there are many who read but who don't contribute. If you can find a way to keep my anonymous, feel free to post my experience. If you have questions that I can answer that may be helpful for others, I am happy to answer them.

    Thanks to you and Cathy and Oscar especially...it makes a difference even when you don't know it! Kara

Tony, I very much recommend keeping the treatment simple. By that I mean to NOT be mixing it with any other treatments including herbal treatments....Oscar

Hello Prioris from Fl:

I'm not taking Coconut Oil at this time. I have in the past per the anti-candida protocol from Bill. I used it for at least 3-4 months straight at different times over the past 2+ years. I can handle the EVCO pretty well in smaller doses(1tsp.-1tbsp. daily). When I go up to the 2 tbsp. dose then I do get pretty bad nausea.

I always take it with food just after meals. It's been a few months now since I was taken EVCO regularly. To be honest, I've tried so many things in the past 2+ years to try and get better but seem to have very limited results. I'm still holding onto faith that God will lead me to the right cure or treatment plan to finally get my life back. Thanks & God Bless!

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 02/09/2014

Dear Tony, This candida infection is a fungal infection. So yes that does present a serious complication. Have you been tested for HIV/AIDS or not ? The reason I ask is because candida is often associated with an HIV infection. Also, have you tried the conventional antibiotics for candida or not ? Is this candida localized or in your blood ? I need some answers to these questions. BHT is effective as a treatment for many lipid coated viruses. I doubt it will help with candida. You can give the BHT a try but if this candida infection worsens you may be better off with what you are now doing. Of course you can try the BHT treatment along with the candida treatment and hope for some improvement with the herpes infection. It may just work and work well this other treatment. I really do NOT know....Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 02/09/2014

Tony, In my opinion you have to make a choice: Go with these other treatments you discuss. If they are working stay with them. If they are NOT working there is the BHT treatment. The BHT treatment does NOT work well with most other treatments.

If you wish to give the BHT treatment a try use it as described. If it works you should see positive results in few months. For many the results are a dramatic improvement in 3 months or less. For some as little as one month.

So, if you choose to try the BHT use it as recommended. If it works you will know within said 3 months....Oscar

Posted by Bill (San Fenando, Philippines) on 02/11/2014

Hi Tony...Life Extension sell the 350 mg BHT supplements on their site at a very reasonable price. LE also recommends nutrients based on the research. Their magazine and research articles are also quite interesting.

The key here is the early diagnosis of HCV the earlier the better you can achieve that negative HCV using BHT, since the body does not yet produce a lot of antibody HCV as it invades your body producing a lot of copy of themselves, in which BHT can early take an action on the virus itself to stop reproducing as discuss by Oscar.

Hi Oscar,

Last time I was looking at some recommendations for Hep B. There was BHT and other supplements like Sodium Selenite. The suggested Sodium Selenite brand was from Twinlab. Unfortunately, the twinlab one does not exist anymore. Could you let me know which other one is good.

Is it good taking BHT with an empty stomach? I mean BHT almost doesn't dissolve at all in water and I tried also in milk which contains fat but it doesn't dissolve either. So will an BHT capsule be absorbed in an empty stomach without being dissolved?

I strongly disagree with "not taking CS." What basis do you have? If you make it correctly, it only kills bad bacteria & doesn't harm anything good in your system.

Thank you for your in-depth information on your health update. I think I have hep c also and still wondering which test I would take to get the best results of finding out which hep virus I have. I started bht. also and had all the same symptoms as you. Terrible feeling. I am so happy your feeling better, God Bless. Thank you Joe.

Dear Oscar,

I love your passion in your search for cures just like Ted. I do have a concern. I'm sold on your method to cure Hep C, but you mentioned that one should avoid herbs of any kind for example. My liver is bloated and need to flush. Most Liver/Gallbladder flushes that I see consist of herbs and extracts (eg-Christoper's Original Formulas brand). Also, I see Ted advising Lecithin and ACV w/baking soda + potassium to help break down fat. Is it ok to take vit k (m4) and vit d3 as well or avoid?

What would you recommend in helping my liver out WHILE doing the Hep C cure. Both problems need to be dealt with ASAP. If anyone else wants to chime in then don't hesitate.

Thanks. :D

BHT Contraindications

I have a 24 yr. old acquaintance in Ethiopia who has chronic Hepatitis B, and has been prescribed Viread, which he really can't even afford (very poor); he also has/had polio and is only able to walk with a leg brace. His symptoms from the Hep B are so debilitating that he cannot even work, which is an added stressor. What BHT protocol do you recommend for him? Thank you very much for your time.

I am taking BHT and have no cure but it has given me back my life which the interfuron took from me and the damage it caused. I am now taking 2 caps of 350mg per day with and without food. It makes me feel good and younger as well.

Thank you Oscar for all your hard work.

No cure here, just more pain with peripheral neuropathy which I shall refer to as pn.

I tried my hardest to use the BHT as per Oscar's suggestions but all it did was give me extreme pn a burning sensation just above the knee caps on my thighs. There was a study done about this at pubmed.com and you can go there and search it out.

I finally gave up on the BHT in December of 2015 at 1 350mg. cap per day. My viral load for Hep-C had climbed to over 9 billion and my liver was starting to ache with what ever healthy foods I consumed. So with my aching liver and the pn keeping me awake at night so many times, that the R+ALA I was taking for relief had finally started to fail me as well. After spending a lot of money on natural products that failed all I could think about was the Robin Williams way out with a piece of rope slung over a bridge and a sign saying my government failed me. They wanted my wife to pay for thee 60,000.00 treatment and I wasn't about to saddle her with that. I am not saying she would not have done it but I just could not do that to her.

Anyway after Abvie Pharma care put me on their compassionate care program, I started the treatment with 3 directs acting antiviral pills with breakfast and 1 booster 12 hours later for 12 weeks the job was done. 2 weeks in and I went from over 9 billion particles of hep-c in my blood to just 15. Another 10 weeks at the end of treatment I was undetectable but not considered cured. Then another 3 months went by and a test revealed again (undetected for hep-c virus) of which I received the results on 26/Aug./2016

So now being classed as cured I will not consider taking BHT because my pn no longer gives me trouble, and my liver no longer aches in protest. I just had to post this here so hopefully OSCAR sees it as he shares a special place in my heart for all he done for me.

It is a good day for me in an unbelievable short time.

Better But With Side Effects

Oscar I am confused, what is the differnce between non dectable and cured and what numbers designate a nondectable rating? if under 8000 is considered a very low vl a Dr Pearlman concludes what designates non detectable. The word certainly does not mean undectable because they still detect antibodies?

As far as the antibodies go, when you get a nondectable reading you still have the antibodies fighting the hep c in your liver and lymphatic system, is that right?. wouldn't a true cure be no antibodies? is it not true that no antibodies would mean there is no hepc for your body to creat antibodies to fight?.

I was told by a Doctor nondectable dose not mean the Lab finds no trace of of hep-c so what is the the designating factor for calling it "non Dectable"

In 2010 I tested 210000 H HCV RNA PCR quant....6.32h

in 2011 using bht as you prescribe my viral load went to 87830

last week I went on harmoni the dr had me tested before starting harmoni it was down to 761240

I had venerial warts very very bad for at least 40 years tried everything, podophlyn, freezing , lazer nothing worked except when I first went on bht after about 3 months they were gone! .

I have taken 13 harmin pills so far and the fatigue is almost gone I say almost but can not really tell because I also take Methadone.

In conclusion BHT has cut my VL load more then in half and the only symptom I have had in 3 years is fatigue.

Oscar do you recomend me taking BHT now along with harmoni, I was taking it up until I started Harmoni but then I stoped I feel like I should be taking it along with the Harmoni what do you think?

I know you are not a believer but I pray for you Oscar., or at least I think I read that somewhere in one of your posts.

Oscar, my fault I spelled the name wrong. It is Harvoni, the newest drug for hep c. Its 1.000 a pill taken for 12 weeks medicare approved it because of what they concluded from the 5 viles of blood they took . I have been off the BHT and on the Harvoni for 17 days and I wondered if you thought it would be detramental to take the Harvoni with the BHT...Sorry to bother you..

By the way I do not consider the BHT as not working. It has certainly cut my viral load in 2/3. The Harvoni is the newst drug out for hep c.. I figured by your post you knew nothing of the drug because I slaughtered the spelling.

Oscar, it makes three cured of the warts, and believe me they were bad, 25 years of bad.. I am one of the four you mentioned, differant e address.

Thank you oscar I agree 100% I was going to do just that. Bht is a great thing.. the reason it didnt totally cure me, may be :I drank coffee, Glucossamine Chondrotin, MSM also Methadone . and tons of sweets, so this may be why Bht cut my VL by 2/3 and couldnt reach non detectable ?? FB

Dear Jos [ AZ ], I do think the BHT at least kept your hepatitis C infection under control and at long last these new and effective hepatitis C treatments are now available.

I do think you are the person who first informed me that BHT can be a very effective treatment for genital warts. So Larry and Teru can thank you for that information.

Jos, I think it would be very helpful to people including Elle from Chicago for you to discuss BHT as a treatment for genital warts. The dosage you used should be helpful.

Sadly, most people who find helpful information here do not bother to even mention it.

So Elle: Please do discuss your experience with BHT as a treatment for genital warts. Did it work or not ? ...Oscar

Please, I need to know I bought my BHT from Wholesale Nutritions because Amazon doeson't ship to malaysia. And I read from the comment section that's its not pure butylated hydroxytoluene. Please can you clarify this.
