Discovering the Health Benefits of BHT: New Research and Findings

Where to Buy: Nigeria
Posted by Sexymom (Nigeria) on 08/10/2014

Please, we Nigerians are really in search for a supplier that will deliver BHT to Nigeria, all efforts to buy on net have been abortive. Immediately you input a location in Nigeria that the product should be delivered to, you instantly get a message "Product cannot be delivered to this location". I have even tried several times on Amazon as Oscar advises, it is still the same "sorry we cannot deliver to this location".

Dear sexymom from Nigeria. Do YOU know what the problem is? Why Nigerians can not buy BHT? Is there some reason why your government will not allow BHT to be sold to people in Nigeria? I do hope your leaders want to have their people healthy. BHT seems to be the ONLY antiviral that is affordable for most Nigerians. I truly do NOT know what the problem is.

I do NOT know the political situation in Nigeria. I do HOPE that the USA president Obama cares about Nigerians. He is of African decent. I do hope it is NOT the USA that is the problem. You tell me because I do NOT know.

We peoples of the WORLD have to find ways of getting along with each other or spend our lives fighting each other....Oscar

Hello Nigerians, I found a company that sells BHT to Nigerians. Here is a direct link to buy BHT from them:

Now this is " The Life Extension Foundation ". I spoke with a staff member of LEF. She told me she knows of NO reason why you can not purchase BHT from them. The price for non-members is $ 16.50 US dollars for one hundred 350mg capsules of BHT. Now you will need a credit card to buy it or have a friend who will let you use their credit card.

If you join LEF and become a member you can buy the BHT for $12.38 for the same one hundred 350mg capsules.

Here is some more information about LEF along with a phone number if you have any problems:

Nigeria is not listed on the countries with restrictions Do recall there sometimes being problems with credit cards from that country. If you were informed that they couldn't buy the product from us, you are welcome to contact Customer Service 1 800 678 8989 or http://[email protected] to find out.

So I very much hope this resolves this problem for Nigerians. I do recommend you start out with 1/2 of a capsule for at least a few days to make sure you have no problem with using BHT. The capsules are easy to pull apart. Then just fold the remainder in a piece of paper for the next dose. Also: I very much advise taking BHT with water only on an empty stomach for best results.

Also: Please report back to the EARTH CLINIC and let me know if this works out for you people. Also: You people need to boil any water you drink to ensure it is safe to drink. The same is true for everyone because so much of the entire world`s water is no loner safe to drink unless it is boiled first....Oscar

Quick follow up to Nigerians: There may be other payment options for buying BHT from Life Extension Foundation. Such as a BANK CHECK or MONEY ORDER if you do not have a valid credit card. You can speak with a customer service representative at: 1-800-678-8989. This is a good company. If you don`t screw them around they will sell the BHT at a good price. I have purchased BHT from them for many years. It is a good product based on my experience with them. So this should solve this problem. I still do not know what the problem was to begin with. There are NO trade restrictions regarding Nigerians buying BHT according to the woman I spoke with. She does state there were problems with Nigerians and credit cards. So if you try and scam or cheat them with invalid credit cards don`t blame me or them. I do know most Nigerians are good people but I have learned there are some Nigerians who try and scam people. The same is true of some Americans so I am NOT judging Nigerians per se. As far as I know there is NO reason you can not buy BHT from LEF. If you want this BHT do NOT try and screw them around with invalid credit card numbers. It is up to you to establish trust with these people by being honest and using valid funds. I went to the trouble to find a retailer for you. Don`t make me live to regret doing so....Oscar

Dear Oscar, I sent in a post to this forum a week or so ago but it wasn't posted. Can you tell me why? It contained many of my HCV PCr test results that I thought would interest this forum and you and be of help to others. I've been reading a lot about BHT here and in the BHT ebook but I hope to contact you so I can learn more and follow up with you.

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 07/06/2014

Dear Indian from Andhra Pradesh, There is this here online retailer of BHT that claims a worldwide distribution of BHT and other products. This company believes in BHT as a treatment for viral infections and provides a lot of information about BHT along with selling it:

Interestingly they have come to similar conclusions as mine as to dosage. For most people: one or two doses of 250mg of BHT per day seems to be what works best for most people as a treatment for viral diseases.

I recommend starting with one 250mg of BHT for one week. If no adverse reactions are experienced start taking two 250mg of BHT per day. One dose in the morning and one at night with water on an empty stomach. If you weigh 130 pounds or less the one dose per day may be all you need to get this hepatitis B infection resolved, cured. To get truly cured takes at least 2 years of daily dosing with BHT as I described or recommended. I hope this information helps you. Please report back to this forum with your test results. Also keep this treatment simple. Do NOT take a bunch of other supplements. Many compounds react with BHT in a way that makes the treatment NOT work. The only supplement I think is OK to use with BHT is a standard multivitamin and mineral supplement. MANY compounds will screw this treatment up including: milk thistle and vitamin B supplements. Drinking grapefruit juice also makes the treatment NOT work. Those statements are based on years of feedback from people using the BHT treatment....Oscar

Dear Janet from Colorado, There are many online sellers of BHT. Here is a good one. This company sells the 250mg capsules of BHT at a good price. I highly recommend starting out with no more than one 250mg capsule of BHT with a gulp of water and on an empty stomach. For thin or lightweight people 250mg of BHT per day may be all that is required. Here is a link to this company that sells the 250mg capsules of BHT:

BHT and Peripheral Neuropathy

You're right Oscar.

I am dealing with Peripheral Neuropathy and Diabetes #2 which is the result of interferon. Just google the side effects and see for yourself. It saddens me to think there are still people who will take that stuff as prescribed by doctors whose only concern is money. The BHT at 350mg per day on an empty stomach lowered my liver enzymes and gratefully cured my brain fog and flue like symptoms. Now I can eat chicken without feeling like I am getting the flu, and I thought it was my sister's cooking. LOL.

Now at this time I take R+ALA for the PN and Chanca Piedra for the pain in the lower lobe of my liver on my left side which by the way started after my biopsy back in 2002. Today I am having a good day but there are some bad ones where energy and stamina are very low. My Alt is 55 AST 51 GGT 32 because stupid me had to get a shingles vaccine out of worry. I am sure my numbers will drop some more if they can find a vein to draw blood from. There are few who can and now they are no longer there. I do appreciate Oscar for all his suggestions and hope he can put all his wonderful info in one column.

Having a good day. Art.

Dear sir,

I am Om from Nepal and have been suffering from Hepa B since one year. I have already tried all herbal medicine which have been finding out in India for hepatitis B but I am not getting good response, instead my Hbsag titer is increasing day by day. I have decided to go through this medicine and follow all the precuation as suggested by Oscar.

I am from Nepal so it has been difficulties to find out BHT in nepal. So, could you please provide me some information so that I can order online. And another question, my weight is 53 kg, what does would be perfect for me. If I take 250mg per day, would it be better.

Oscar's BHT Recommendations
Posted by Tony (Tn, US) on 09/15/2014

This is being posted to anyone going with previous/current BHT treatment. I started on BHT protocol over 2 months ago. I'm using it to treat viral overload mainly due to herpes. I'm only taking Vit. C with BHT at a total of 1000 mg daily. I take the BHT at 700 mg daily split in 2 doses.

I haven't seen any big changes yet on the treatment. I've had one pretty bad outbreak but the most recent one was milder & didn't seem as bad. It's my understanding that treatment with BHT will cause the herpes outbreaks to gradually disappear over a period of months up to a year.

That's my ultimate goal is to stop the outbreaks but possibly even getting rid of the virus all together with the BHT treatment.

What I want to ask is a question in regards to mixing in another supplement with the protocol. I don't take nothing but Vit. C with BHT right now. I'm wanting to add in a superfood with this treatment. I will be using this superfood for pain relief. I suffer from chronic pain & even have to resort to pain medication at times for some type of relief.

I don't want that so I was wondering if it would be OK to take Noni superfood with the BHT treatment? I know Oscar stated that some herbs/other supplements in theraputic doses can degrade the BHT treatment. Noni is supposedly wonderful for pain relief. I've never taken Noni so I can't testify about its health benefits. I just know others that have & they say it's helped not only with pain but many other symptoms as well.

So, to anybody that can answer this please do so. I'm going to continue the BHT protocol regardless but was hoping to add Noni to the treatment plan. I'm hoping to see this viral overload decrease over the next few months from the BHT treatment.

This may take a while for me because I've suffered from herpes for just over 20 years. I've tried numerous plans & protocols from right here at EC. No major changes yet from any of them including the candida protocol by Bill but I will continue pushing on & trust in Jesus to do what His Word say! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks & God Bless!

Hello Tony,

Stay on your BHT and C...if doing BHT from everything Oscar says, BHT works best where nothing is interfering.

If results are not as you'd want then consider Colloidal Silver...apply topically and orally. Two tablespoons three times daily. I'd do this for a full month before judging results. I'd do this for six months to come close to killing a systemic infection.

Oscar's BHT Recommendations
Posted by Tony (Tn) on 09/16/2014

Thanks Dave for your reply back to me buddy! I've read a many of your posts here at EC. Even temporarily used one of your suggestion for eradicating the virus from my system. This is the CS & DMSO-Echinacea remedy for treating viruses like herpes. I tried that for 3 months but only got minimal results.

I was taking 4 tbsp. of CS daily (on empty stomach) along with topically applying DMSO, CS, & Echinacea to my spleen area twice daily.

After only 2+ months of BHT/Vit. C I've seen also minimal results so far but do not want to stop the treatment too early. Like I said, my last outbreak was milder & didn't last but a few days.

I do understand that Oscar says to not take other supplements/herbs in theraputic dosages because they can interfere with the BHT treatment. I'm just looking for some real pain relief. I've not had real pain relief ever since this sickness blew up on me close to 3 years ago. I thought the Noni would help for the pain because of the people telling me about it.

I also understand what Oscar says. I wonder if Noni or any other superfood has ever been studied to degrade the BHT treatment? I don't want to be taking pain medication at all either but 1/2 tablet every few days does certainly give me a little relief at least but I know it's not the answer either. So, you're saying it's best to avoid Noni while on the BHT to be safe & to keep from any type of interference with BHT?

I have to ask why does taking prescription meds like pain medication & others not interfere with BHT either? We all here know prescription meds are just adding fuel to the fire so I question Oscar saying for everyone to keep taking their prescription meds while on the treatment as well. How can viral overload be eradicated while still taking medications with the BHT? I understand some meds can't be stopped cold turkey but taking meds with this treatment is a theory I can't understand either.

I also remember reading a post of yours a while back about someone asking you about the white coating on their tongue. You said that you were concerned about this being a viral problem for that person. I had always looked at my white coated tongue as a fungal issue. I tried treating my health issues with the candida protocol by Bill for months & months but got nowhere.

This post of yours led me to thinking this white coating on my tongue could very well be more viral than anything because if there's one thing I know that I have & that's herpes simplex virus & this dates back to 1994. I've been using tea tree oil on my tongue & inner mouth twice daily for a few months now & I have to say the white coating is almost gone.

Of course, the digestive issues with the viral overload can be seen in the mouth/tongue just like any other ongoing gut issues will be shown in the mouth area. I have come to the conclusion that most if not all of my health issues are related to my viral overload since I contracted herpes simplex in 1994 & never received any traditional medicine treatment for it. I still think there's a chance for some fungal issues but I know for a fact that I have viral issues so that's why I decided to go with treating that a few months back.

Dave, what is your suggestions as far as diet goes while on the BHT treatment? I mean I've tried the candida diet per Bill's suggestions but never got anywhere. I do take in some sugar but it's through fruits(not fruit juices, fresh fruit only) & at times an organic health food bar too that's Non-GMO. I don't take in much sugar at all. Probably 3-5 grams total daily unless I eat multiple fruits daily & that's very little.

I read an article a while back in which it stated to avoid fructose completely while taking BHT. I feel like that may be a bit extreme but I just want the absolute best advice possible while taking this BHT treatment. The BHT treatment is the cheapest remedy that I've seen for treating what I now believe is more viral related so this is certainly a plus for me & my family because we've spent so much money throughout this whole ordeal!

I'm just trying to hold on & of course continue to keep my trust in The Lord while going through this journey. It's not easy but I do have the greatest power in this world on my side. Thanks Dave & any suggestions are welcomed buddy!

Oscar's BHT Recommendations
Posted by Tony (Tenn., US) on 09/17/2014

Thanks Oscar for your reply. I didn't think you were roaming these discussion boards much anymore.

I actually started the BHT treatment on July 10th. I began with a low dosage to avoid any unwanted problems to what I already have. I started at 175mg daily for 2 weeks. I then went to 350mg daily for another 2 weeks. I'm now on the 700mg dosage & that's been since around the 10th of August. I keep records of my supplements intake on my religious calendar so I can give you exact dates.

So, I've only been on the 700mg dosage for a little over 5 weeks now. I'm not a big guy at all. I'm 5'9" & weight 165 pounds. I don't have much fat except for the abdominal region. That's the only area on my body with excess fat.

I don't know what's the cause of excess fat there except for my digestive issues to go along with whatever pathogens are inside me. I just know it's mostly virus related though. I have viral problems without a doubt so that's why I think most of my problems are related to viral overload.

The excess fat in the stomach area is why I decided on the 700mg dosage instead of a 350mg dosage that others may take with less body fat/size.

I've read that BHT can be taken safely for extended periods of time at this 700mg dosage. It can even be taken continually at 700mg if needed without causing any liver damage or other side effects for most people.

I do have another question for ya Oscar. I DO NOT go to the doctors anymore! I stopped going in October of last year because of the lack of care that I had received & all of my health issues being blamed on my mind. Of course, my mind is a mess because of my ongoing physical health issues. My mind IS NOT the direct cause of my health problems though.

How will I know if the BHT treatment is removing the viral overload? Do I go strictly by watching/journaling the herpes outbreaks? Do I go by other symptoms improving like fatigue & pain? I'd just like to know what all I should be looking for in regards to if the BHT/Vit. C treatment is working?

You say to give the BHT treatment about 3 months testing. I would have to start with evaluating my progress at the 700mg dosage even though I started taking BHT on July 10th. So, that 700mg dosage started on August 10th so that means I have about another 2 months left to determine my progress.

Is 1000mg of Vit. C enough to go alongside the BHT dosage? I know you list 500-1000mg in your recommendations but I want to ask if more taken is OK without any interference with BHT or should I stay with 1000mg? And, you do say not to take the Noni that I asked about too right?

Also, do you have any dietary recommendations to go beside the BHT treatment? Do I need to avoid all fructose or any other particular foods? I don't see anything in regards to diet from your BHT protocol. That one article I read was avid at saying not to eat any fructose while taking BHT. What's your take on this & entire diet with the treatment? Thanks Oscar & God Bless!

Oscar's BHT Recommendations
Posted by Tony (Tn, US) on 09/19/2014

Hello again Oscar. I know that I replied a couple of days ago to this very topic but I wanted to post back to ask you something more important.

I know you list taking a standard multi was OK to go alongside the BHT treatment. I've not been on a multi in a few months. I'm wanting to go back on a multi now.

You say not to use herbs in any theraputic dosages with the BHT. Is it OK to take a multi with some smaller amounts of herbals? The one I have in mind is here:

I want to take a complete multi for men & this one is highly rated. I've been on numerous other multi's in the past but this one is what I want to take now. It does have several herbals in varying doses so I want to check with you before buying it to compliment the BHT treatment.

If this Multi you wouldn't recommend then please point me to a multi that would fit the BHT treatment. I want one specifically suited to men & not just a standard multi considered for everyone.

One other thing I found just searching through BHT links from Google. I want your opinion of the following article on BHT:

What's your opinion in the article on the combination of high doses of Vit. E & Vit. C with BHT for treating the family of lipid coated viruses?

I really think my situation is possibly a candidate for something like the above article. I've had this virus for over 20 years now without any significant treatment from traditional medicine or any other means until the past 2 months or so.

I just think I need to go as aggressive as possible with treatment. I've been in really bad shape for almost 3 years now. I'm surprised that I haven't already passed on but The Lord has kept me here for a reason. I need to supplement with as many means as possible to attack the viral overload. I know this virus is the MAIN cause for all of my health issues. I thought for a long time it was more fungal/candida related but I never got anywhere treating candida overload.

If it's one thing I know for sure that I have it's viral related with herpes simplex dating back to 1994. The doctors have told me that herpes simplex has NOTHING to do with my health issues. Yeah right! Any pathogen(s) is the main cause for all of our health issues. So in their eyes viruses(long or short term) aren't a problem for my health? Are you kidding me?

Is it OK to continue using the alkalizing remedies listed here at EC while on the BHT treatment? I'm on the BS/H2O remedy taken @ 1/2 tsp. BS w/H2O 3X daily.

Anyhow, want your input on the information above as soon as you can get back to me. Thanks again Oscar for your time! Have a great weekend & God Bless!

I am struggling with HV2 and want to start BHT to see if it woud help. It feels it is in all of the nerves in my spine especially cranial nerves, so I also get migraines. I am on high dose of valtrex (2g per day) but if I try to lower the dose the flare up is unbearable. Do you have any suggestions about being on VALTRX and trying BHT?

BHT Overview
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 11/10/2013

Dear Louisa from Chicago, Because you are using VALTEX I assume HV2 is one of the Herpes viruses. I have have NO way of knowing how well BHT will work with VALTREX. If YOU choose to try using the two together I can only advise doing so with care. By that I mean starting out with low dosages of BHT. Those BHT capsules are easy to pull apart. So you can start out with half or less a capsule of BHT per day and see for yourself how the two work together. If no advese reactions occur you can work up to one capsule of BHT per day. And from there you can go to the larger doses of BHT [ two capsules per day ]. Just be careful and see how the two work together for you. Valtrex itself is known to cause headaches for some people. Side effects of valtrex are discussed here:

5 out of 5 stars

Dear Leanne from Australia, The BHT works very well for all types of herpes virus, genital and non-genital. Many thousands of people have been using it to treat herpes successfully since at least the early 1980s. It [ BHT ] works best if taken with water only on an empty stomach. Also: keep this treatment simple for best results. Do NOT be using other supplements. The only supplement I consider OK to use with BHT as an anti-viral is a standard multivitamin and mineral supplement. I ran a BHT CURES group for about two years and keeping the treatment simple is what works best based on the substantial feedback I received. As far as how long it takes to truly CURE a herpes infection: It is different for each person. Usually at least 2 or 3 years. The results are often immediate, within a few days the sores disappear. But, if you stop taking the BHT the outbreaks reoccur. This BHT does not cost very much. About 40 to 50 dollars a YEAR or less. Also BHT has been proven to extend the average lifespan of mice by as much as 50%. That is because BHT prevents cancer and viral diseases if used in sensible dosages. No more than 500mg of BHT per day for most people. The less you weigh the less you need or desire. And the more you weigh the more you need. The same is true of any medicine. The reason is obvious and needs no explanation. There is MORE or less of you depending on how much you weigh. Also because BHT acummilates in fat tissues, lean, thin people need less and fatter people need more. For a person who weighs 125 pounds or less about 250mg of BHT per day is about right. You may have to play around with the dosage a bit to learn what works best for you....Oscar

BHT Overview
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 04/25/2015

To ALL trying the BHT treatment for all viral hepatitis diseases and or other viral diseases such as the different herpes viruses.

Please do take notice that I now advise against taking vitamin B12 supplements. I do know I at one time advocated the use of vitamin B12 supplements. That was biggest mistake I made regarding the BHT treatment.

The reason I now advise against using vitamin B12 supplements along with the BHT treatment is because those who did just that experienced a large increase in those viral load counts.

Adult people only need 2mcg to 3mcg of vitamin B12 per day. That is micrograms and not milligrams. 1mg=1,000mcg.

So what is the harm in taking excessive amounts of vitamin B12 ?

Because vitamin B12 has 6 amino [ NH2 ] groups and is a very large molecule it acts as a BHT metabolite scavenger. It combines with said BHT metabolites by way of a peptide bond. The metabolites of BHT [ the altered compounds of BHT that enter the bloodstream ] have the so called " carboxyl group ". This combining of the amino group with the carboxyl group is called a peptide bond. This probably involves enzymes designed to do just that.

Also and importantly: unlike most vitamins, vitamin B12 RECYCLES itself. So even seemingly tiny amounts of B12 can scavenge large amounts of the metabolites of BHT.

To penetrate those viral lipid coatings said BHT metabolites have to be small enough to do so. Said metabolites also have to be lipid seekers. So called lipophilic chemical entities.

I want to clear up this mistake I made. So for best results do NOT take vitamin B12 supplements if using BHT to treat viral diseases.

In defense of myself: I was under a lot of pressure from that BHT cures group I used to lead to add vitamin B12 and many other supplements to the BHT treatment. This is one of the reasons I ended that group. I got fed up with being pressured to add this that and some other thing to the treatment.

All I ever used to treat myself was the BHT. I was also taking an occasional multi-vitamin and some vitamin C now and then.

That is what worked for me and many others including an AIDS patient who was also infected with hepatitis C. He was taking the drug combo " COMPLERA " for his AIDS infection and BHT for his hepatitis C infection. He cut his HCV viral load in half in ONE WEEK using BHT as I recommend....Oscar

Hey Oscar, how does one get in touch with you regarding BHT and HSV2? I am currently doing Synergy Pharmaceutical's protocol which is Lysine, Tribulus, Rhodiola, Astragulus, and an enhanced amino formula. They claim a 70% cure rate on their website.

I also am taking Biogetica's Hyperisince, which actually cured me already last year and got me to a negative result. My test showed a .89 on the IGG result. I started drinking and living a toxic life and I guess I brought it back on. I am not sure why I went from a negative to a positive. Do you think I can add BHT in the morning before I take these at night time? I have been trying different protocols for about 5 years. My Biogetica protocol took me 8 months to get to a negative. I didn't drink alcohol or eat any sugar, friend foods, and avoided inflammation causing foods. Obviously, I would love to take the fast track and get a negative result again so I can move on with my life and be free.

Do you see those that do the BHT protocol have HSV ever come back? Also, I saw that the Yahoo group was removed. I understand how the politics are around natural drugs. Ever thought about making a Telegram? Thanks so much for all you do! Let me know what you think about me taking BHT in the morning and those others at night.

I was massaging with BHT and oil and took a bath. About an hour later, I was sweating (especially palm and bottom of my feet) crying and anxious... I knew this was detox symptom. And then I remembered I just bought kosher collagen. and they say collagen reduce anxiety.

It did. I mean right away.

I will probably be easy on BHT. I used about half cup massaging my body. Obviously it was too much.

In trying BHT, I also figured that maybe I was dificient of collagen. No wonder I suffered arthrities in the past. Thank you all who posts here.

I appreciate your sharing. I will also update the progress..later. Good luck.everyone.

BHT Side Effects
Posted by Swfowkes (Cupertino, California) on 09/24/2015 46 posts

The heat of bathwater might have facilitated transport through your skin, or volatilized the BHT into vapor which you could have breathed in through your lungs. Lungs have an incredibly high surface area and can absorb things quite efficiently. This is why nebulizers are so popular for certain kinds of drug delivery.

Lung-related side effects of BHT are observed in mice. Their lungs are particularly sensitive. Although lung sensitivity is not seen in rats or other mammals, nobody has ever tried testing BHT as a vapor delivered via warm humid air in a bathtub where the air might have been stratified to maximize lung absorption.

I'm not clear from your post whether you used a half-cup of BHT or a half-cup of BHT dissolved in oil. A half-cup of pure molten BHT would be about 100 grams of BHT, of which 3% absorption could cause temporary liver toxicity and possibly even hallucinations. Could you clarify this for me?

I use BHT vapor to preserve my coffee, and I used it many decades ago to preserve marijuana. This is written up in my BHT book, the link is posted in an earlier posting.

Oscar, Two years ago I took 350 mg capsule of BHT once a day for four days for the herpes virus. I had a nervous reaction to it so stopped after four days. It took me awhile to recover from that.

I would like to try it again and am wondering if anyone who has had this reaction has been able to take it at a lower dosage. If so, what would be the dosage to try?

I noticed a suggestion to break a capsule and touch the powder with a finger tip and try that for a reaction. If a reaction occurred when taking this small amount would it be as strong a reaction as with the 350 mg capsule? Or a lesser reaction?

I ask this because a pharmacist once told me that if you ever react to any medication you will always again react to it just as powerfully even if it's taken in a minute dose. Not sure whether to believe that as it doesn't seem logical.

To Matelina from SC,

To answer your question; you are going to try again the BHT to kill the virus but the first time you did it you had a reaction and your question is... is there a way to take it such that there is no reaction?


There is such a thing as building up a tolerance to something. So try a TINY amount of the BHT and just see. That's what I'd do anyway. Your first reaction was not life threatening was it? I did not get that from your post. So just try a few grains; the smallest amount you can... and with food so the BHT isn't hitting the system on an empty stomach.

By the way; there are other ways to kill a virus. I'm a big advocate of Colloidal Silver (high dose) taken over months to kill a system wide infection / echinacea.... Five drops twice a day for a month. Topical applications if possible of same.

Posted by Matalina (Spartanburg, Sc) on 09/28/2013

Thank you. I do use echinacea when I have an outbreak only but the virus continues to return whereas with BHT I have read it eradicates the virus after a year or two.

With colloidal silver I'm concerned about turning blue. I saw photos of the guy on the news who turned blue from using colloidal silver and died recently.

The nervous reaction I had from taking the 350 mg capsules was pretty bad. It was internal shaking 24/7 and I was also very sick. I took the capsules for four days and quit. I then contacted Stephen Fowkes who was kind enough to respond and even talked with him on the phone. He told me it was a metabolic problem and that I should up my intake of Armour Thyroid. I tried that but it made no difference, a fact I didn't relate to Stephen Fowkes as I felt it was useless. It took me a year to fully recover. Since I told Stephen Fowkes about it I am always surprised to read on the internet that no adverse reactions have been reported as I did report that reaction to him.

I may try to take a tiny grain of it to see if I can build up. Thank you for replying.

To Matalina from Spartanburg: Some people do report a nervous disorder similar to drinking too much coffee when first trying BHT. Usually these problems go away within a week or two. But I always advise lowering the dosage of BHT used when ANY adverse effects are experienced. 350mg of BHT per day IS too much for more than a few people. If you wish to give the BHT another try it is sold in 250mg capsules. You can also try taking a capsule every other day. This dosage issue is something each person has to work out for themselves....Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 09/28/2013

Matalina, That colloidal silver stuff is poison. What else are you taking ? The BHT treatment does NOT mix well with other treatments. If you choose to try a bunch of other treatments do NOT take BHT. Again: BHT does NOT mix well with many other treatments.

I am amazed at the number of people who insist on mixing all sorts of stuff together. A large part of pharmacy is all about avoiding mixing the wrong things together. Read the bottles and pamphlets provided with almost any drug out there and you will see that I am right about that....Oscar

Posted by Rob (Manhattan) on 09/28/2013

Oscar, I was wondering what got you to try and most importantly, stick with the BHT treatment to see through to success... I imagine much was less known when you started.. and most give up after a month or so... Also, I noticed a steady increase in reviews on BHT on the iHerb site... I very much appreciate the work you've put into this... as it will help many..

Posted by Rsw (Uniontown, Oh) on 09/29/2013

Hi Oscar, I respect your opinions very much, so I wondered when you say colloidal silver is poison, do you mean when combined with the BHT or you do mean in every circumstance? I just bought some yesterday and will not use it if it is not a good choice for nasal congestion. I bought 500 PPM but do not understand what that means in terms of use or effectiveness. Could anyone explain it in simple terms? Thank you.

Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 09/29/2013

Hello RSW: in re colloidal silver. 500 parts per million is plenty strong enough. My test for making sure it is a "for real" silver solution is just what you are now facing; a sinus infection. Just take enough in palm of hand to be about a teaspoon and sniff up sinus cavity on both sides. (Make sure it get deep into sinus cavity. ) You definitely have an infection so if this is a quality silver it WILL sting, especially on one side. Sinuses will begin draining in minutes and in five minutes you'll be breathing fairly well. Now, repeat the irrigation ten minutes later, leaning head back as silver drains down throat. The second time the stinging will be barely present. The infection is being killed.

Infection in the ears may be going on also so consider an application in the ear canals. The two (sinus irrigation and ear irrigation) will get to the eustacian tubes. I've had twenty years of experience with CS/ make my own and have personally seen hundreds of anecdotal stories so know quite well the results. Silver solution properly made will kill virus/fungus and bacteria if properly applied. Depending on the infection, repeated treatment might be necessary and sometimes for a long time. There are variables.

Posted by Rob (Manhattan) on 09/29/2013

Thanks Oscar... I thought that it took a year or two for you to clear the virus... But am surprised to hear that it only took a month?... thanks for sharing.

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 09/30/2013

Dear Rsw, Alright I will answer your question: Why do I consider so called coloidal silver a poison. It is an element that does NOT occur natuarally in human biology. I read a toxicology report that was included in some company selling colloidal silver as a portion of their patent application.

That toxicology report described the one toxicology test they had done. Ten young healthy rats were given the colloidal silver as recommended with dosage adjusted for the weight of these young adult and healthy rats.

After only two weeks on the colloidal silver treatment: Two of the ten rats so treated had discolored livers. One of those ten rats had softening of its heart tissue. This is called congestive heart failure. So out of ten rats so treated for only two weeks, three of those rats had observable signs of vital organ damage. The person who did this testing said the results were inconclusive.

This colloidal silver treatment does remind of the old salts of mercury treatments for syphilis. Those salts of mecury did work to varying degrees as a treatment for syphilis. But like mercury, silver accumilates in certain vital organs and damages them as that toxicology report clearly indicates. At least in my opinion it does. I am sure I will catch some heat for expressing my opiinion. So be it....Oscar

Posted by Rsw (Uniontown, Oh) on 09/30/2013

Hi Oscar, thank you for your candid and evidence-based view on CS. I respect what you have to say and appreciate your input. The more opinions we have on a subject, the better prepared we will be to make informed decisions. Thanks, again.

Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 09/30/2013

Hello Oscar; Am responding to your assertion that colloical silver is poison. You cite a toxicology study conducted by a manufacturer of Colloidal Silver (CS). You do not name the manufacturer. You do not specify the report. So you assert a manufacturer published a report that impuned his own product. Fascinating.

I can go on line and come up with abstracts that make assertions about silver accumulation in the organs and what I find is that they are using silver as a compound or like one that was done for a Euasian Toxocology Journal... Chickens were given the silver in unspecified quanties from a POWDER. Imagine the PPM level of that.

You depend heavly on that unnamed and uncited "study" to describe Ag as poison. Yet by not being able to analyze how the study was conducted we do not know the validity of your criticism.

Electrolysis made silver diluted to less than 500 ppm will not accumulate and even critics of CS concede that fact. Only big Pharma want to frighten us into believing otherwise.

I've been on CS about five times weekly at the high PPM now for 20 years and what you describe as "poison" must be a slow killer. I feel great. (And have had four hair samples taken in past ten years with NO indication of even abnormal silver levels.)

Oscar, if you had followed your own advice and trusted Pearson and Shaw's admonition about not using BHT to kill viruses if related to liver issues, you'd called BHT a poison. (Life Extension Companion)

Fortunately, you didn't follow their warnings and you have helped many people who are being devestated by Hep B and C.

And is BHT part of the "Human biology"? You criticize Ag, one of the elements of the periodic table, for not being part of the human biology when we get microscopic amounts of Ag daily and does no damage at all and yet you are an advocate of BHT which is not an element and definitely not a part of the human biology and you assert is a Hep B and C killer.

And on the odd assertion that silver softens the heart causing congestive heart failure. Please cite a source for that idea. I've read a lot about CHF over the years in all its many forms; usually the extra pressure being caused by plaque build up, or water retention; and that excess causes the heart to enlarge and HARDEN because of the intense pressure it must exert to force the blood through a restricted opening (hence high blood pressure as indicative of heart problems). A recent Mercola explanation of why distance runners develop HARDENED hearts which is just what happens with congestive patients. I've missed the "softening" issue which you attribute to silver sofenting the heart to cause CHF. I've read perhaps a dozen causes of CHF but the softening one has eluded me.

I've read plenty about the heart muscle "streching" as it tries more and more to pump blood all the while never catching up... That's not "softening" so I'm not at all following what you mean when you equate the "softening" with CHF... and then say that silver can cause the same.

Please cite your sources so I can get better informed.

I'm with you on this one Dave. It is beyond common that "studies" and "reports" are biased and skewed towards self interest and maximizing financial profits. Facts & knowledge suffer the same problem not only in medicine, but now dominating politics (one can effectively lie thru deceptive statistics). Simply consider the complications involved in the (man made?) global warming issue. C. S. Has a long track record of efficiency & safety in human use. C. S. Is also a preferred antibiotic for pets.

The white truths are always compromised by the dark lies, and the consequence is that grey area that many people get bogged down in with no path out.

Dave, I no longer see the man with Argyria in my neighborhood so cannot ask him how much he took to cause his condition.. Plus I would be reluctant to for obvious reasons.. But again, seeing him was enough to scare me away from the stuff. Making me realize it is real & possible. Also, I tend to respecet Andrew Weil's opinion & it appears he gives it a big thumbs down.. I did have a friend who had her own silver generating machine... & she never turned blue grey.. but for me the issue is, why take a chance and that there are many other germicides that are as or more effective.

Here is what Weil says....

Hi Dave and Oscar xxxxx

I am going to add my ten cents here also. Bicarb when given to birds and rats will blow them apart in seconds due to the rush of oxygen it supplies to their body, but it doesn't do it to humans or any other species that I know of. What's to say the web page you read is not Pharma scare tactics? You don't sell a product to bankrupt yourself by putting a negative statement up with it? Instant Bankrupt? And its been known for a long time pharma and supplement companies pay the lab workers to get rid of dead ra's and put live ones in the Labs so it gets passed as 'Safe for use'??? I too would like to see more solid evidence on this, I admire you greatly Oscar, but it's a bit suspect to me, I am with Dave on this matter. And there are other posts like this on EC that look like their all reading from the same piece of paper word for word. Love Andrea C xxxxxx

Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 10/02/2013

Rob on the Colloidal Silver/ Grey issue:

And no one else responded to my general "challenge" to describe what process was being used by someone who has argyria. That was my point. And you also talk about another neighbor you have who uses the electrical system and has no problem.

My argument is, we hear of argyria cases and I can never can get an explanation on how they are incorrectly doing it.

One part per mission is like one inch in 12 miles. I do more than that but the miniscule amount cannot cause a problem. Now if I drank a cup of concentrate daily... An amount you could actually see in the glass container and drank that every day for months, then I could see how that concentration... 100,000 parts per million perhaps, how that amount could cause argyria.

Thanks for responding.

One of BHT's side effects is hypotension. This often manifests in people with poor vagal tone (sympathetic dominance, anxiety, nervousness), with low metabolic rate (cold hands and feet, low body temperature, low pulse rate), with orthostatic hypotension (sit up, stand up, get dizzy), and an alkaline metabolic imbalance (see explanation at: People experiencing a low-blood-sugar attack or a low blood pressure episode will often go into sympathetic defense involving adrenal hormones (cortisol, norepinephrine and epinephrine), which raises the blood pressure and blood sugar but leaves people wired, irritable, anxious, edgy, uncomfortable and nervous.

This side effect from BHT is strongest in the first 2-3 days and rapidly attenuates with regular BHT use. BUT, in a particularly sensitive person, it might persist, especially if the person had a long-standing adrenal compensation for low thyroid or some other anti-thyroid influence (e.g., heavy metal poisoning).

When I wrote the BHT Book, I emphasized the synergies between BHT and other metabolic influences so that those other influences would get similar respect as BHT, for those who cannot tolerate BHT gracefully. Perhaps you are such a person?

There are impurities in BHT that could cause side effects that may look like they are caused by BHT. So considering switching brands, buying BHT from another vendor, or adding some activated charcoal to your BHT intake.

Or just use the antiviral nutrients.

Hello all and many thanks for posting all the success and experience with BHT as its giving me hope.

I was diagnosed in 2005 and read horror stories about the conventional treatments so felt there had to be another way. At that time my viral load was 75k and I don't know what geno type I am as the Dr. forgot to request that test.

I began taking the BHT about a year ago and within a couple of weeks - I felt so much better! The brain fog cleared and the aches and pains vanished also. Every morning upon waking, I felt better over the previous days. I felt really encouraged.

I just got new blood work back and my viral load is up to 360k so its back to the drawing board and I am going to be more disciplined than before. I also recently had a flu shot and understand that can contribute to elevated viral loads.

So a little disheartened but going to make more of an effort and will report my results in the coming weeks.

Dear Msc from Sarasota, I am Oscar. I did have a BHT cures group for over two years but no longer do.

What we learned in that group was to keep this BHT treatment simple. Things including: Milk Thistle and it`s extracts, Vitamin B12 supplements, grapefruit juice, and many other things can degrade the treatment. So do NOT take them.

The good news is you are still very much in the LOW ZONE as regards that viral load count for hepatitis C after 10 years of being infected with hepatitis C.

There were many people who felt much better using the treatment as discussed who struggled with getting that viral load count down to NO VIRUS DETECTED. It was always a matter of identifying what they were taking that was degrading the treatment. For one person it was drinking lots of grapefruit juice. For others it was taking milk thistle, vitamin B12 supplements, etc..

So keep the treatment simple for best results....Oscar

I have received the following two reports from John regarding how very well the BHT is working as a treatment for his herpes infection. John uses a cell phone to post with and has problems posting in some forums. Anyway this IS what John has reported to me:

Oscar- I have been taking BHT to treat herpes for 1 year. I have not had one outbreak since I started taking 2 x 350mg per day of BHT. I have had 3 igG herpes blood tests since starting BHT and each one has resulted in a progressively lower result, and the last test about 4 months ago is close to an equivocal reading.

You have mentioned on a few postings that you have not had a herpes outbreak in years. As you are aware, herpes is different than hepatitis C in that it can hide in the nervous system. I know that you have been dealing with more serious health issues than herpes; however, I have a request that may provide valuable information and hope to those fighting herpes. Would it be possible for you to get an igG test for the herpes virus to see if the result is negative?

All the best to you, John

Update from John sent July 25, 2013

As Oscar mentioned, I have been taking bht about 2 years to treat hsv. As an update to my hsv testing, after 3 increasingly lower igG blood tests over a period of 3 years, the last test showed a slightly higher result at 1. 50. I was a bit concerned about this until I read that any result under 3 maybe a false positive. Last week, I took a different type of test, a biokit type, and the result was negative. Don't know what to think now. The experts say that the gold standard test is a western blot test, and perhaps one day I will take that test. I am sort of stubborn though and intend to keep taking bht and take a few more igG tests in hopes of an eventual igG negative result.

Hi. I'm writing with a few questions in regards to the use of BHT. I have been using it for GH for about 4 weeks without much success. I have had GH for 10 years now and never had the need to be on medication except a month before delivering my babies (twice). This year for some reason I have had non stop outbreaks. It has gotten progressively worse in the last 4 months to the point that they seem to never go away. I only get one lesion internally which wasn't my usual breakout lesion. I am desperate. BHT hasn't helped at all. I have tried empty stomach with coconut oil. I'm currently taking pills. 3 a day. 350 mg. Started with one, then a few days later went up to 2, a week later 3. And still no sign of improvement. I'm not getting all the symptoms full strength most times such as the herpetic neuralgia on my right hip and leg (side of the lesion). I get no itch, just pain on the lesion. I have tried opening up a few pills and diluting them in the coconut oil during the last week but I still take a pill accompanied by a spoonful or two of the diluted mixture. I am a 36 year old female. 120 lbs 5'4". Don't have any other health issues. Recently got a physical and blood work did not reveal any deficiencies that could explain the constant outbreaks. Really need help. Any suggestions please.

Hi Rocio,

HSV 1 as well as HSV 2 are viruses, of course. BHT may work well according to Oscar oft posted on Earth Clinic. But if no luck with BHT and your non-Hep B or C virus, then PLEASE try a STRONG (high PPM) of Colloidal Silver. (BHT appears to work well on Hep B and C.)

You can apply Silver topically to affected area AND orally on empty stomach. You need two tablespoons three times daily. Now that you are having constant outbreaks you can rest ASSURED that the virus is now SYSTEMIC. That is it is throughout your body. It will take six months to eliminate the virus completely, but be patient. I've seen many, many cases where systemic viral/fungal infections are reversed with CS.

Also, you need to be on the herb echinacea. Five drops in glass of purified water twice daily for a month. Like CS you can apply echinacea topically.

Echinacea is excellent for killing all kinds of infectious microbes and I've used it successfully for very bad spider bites for instance. Applied topically, I repeat the application on the site and then re apply twice every hour... Total three to five times in a day. Do this for up to three days.

Hi Rocio... You may want to add Monolaurin to your regimen... also to kick up your immune system you could add Astragalus or even AHCC (expensive)..

I noticed recently that Dr. Weil has endorsed the use of monolaurin... Quote.. "Monolaurin is believed to have the potential to permanently inactivate the fat coated viruses that cause these diseases by fluidizing the lipids (fats) and phospholipids in their envelopes, leading to the disintegration of viral particles."

I noticed iHerb sells monolaurin .. & there is another brand ...Laura....n

Also, Lypospheric Vitamin C gives a fast boost to your immune system and is a good addition to fighting viruses.. Unfortunately, it too is expensive... (overpriced in my opinion, but I still buy it)

Genital Herpes Outbreaks
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 09/08/2013

Hello Rob,

Maybe you could help solve a mystery of HOW those who have argyria made their silver. Or what is the source of their silver. Those of us who make our own are mystified at such cases. I've consumed my own for over 19 years... Often five times a week and my skin is very white. I've given hundreds of bottles away and never has anyone turned grey or blue. The old method was to use a silver spoon in a cup and then with tanic acid, the silver over a few days would break off. That would then be consumed. ("Blue bloods" is the term that was used to describe those who had money enough to own silver... Or "born with a silver spoon in your mouth" for the children who would be given silver spoons to suck on when an infection was about and whose skin was apparently effected by such consumption. ) The Greeks over 2, 000 years ago silver plated their food plates with it because they recognized the benefits of eating off such plates and silver coated goblets.

I do not even know anyone who has argyria nor have I ever seen one. You'd think with the hundreds of thousands of people who do consume CS that blue people would be everywhere. Universally today, pure silver "rods" are used... A little thicker than a paper clip and those attached to batteries or an outlet and in minutes a cloud of silver is broken off the "rods"... And that cup of clouded water is diluted until one cannot see the presence of any addition nor can one taste any metalic addition. The Parts Per Million would be about 100 PPM (100 atoms of silver to one MILLION molecules of water). And the silver "rods" I started with nearly 20 years ago... Are the same ones I still use. So little silver is used... microscopic amounts are what we are talking about.

So here is what I'd appreciate: Anyone who has argyria or knows someone with the stain, could you please enlighten us as to HOW they prepared their silver. It's sort of like complaining that too much water can damage you... So don't drink water. Yeah, too much water can actually kill you... especially if you are face down in it for a few minutes.

So PLEASE help... For those of us who know first hand how effective CS is... let us know how those who have been "overdosed" have prepared their mixture.

What I want to know is just how the ones who have argyria prepared their silver. Step by step and the amount of silver water consumed and if it was a compound that they actually consumed. Did they take it as a "cream" form? Where did they get it if they did not make it themselves? How long did they take it?... That is for a month; years etc. Please, every detail would help explain what happened.

Rob, could you talk to that person in your neighborhood and get some info as desired above. Thousands of CS makers would be grateful.

Thanks for your responses. Yes. I am on a supplements as well. Lysine, vitamin B12, vitamin C, Herpeeze which contains a whole bunch of things, olive leaf, oil of oregano, cayenne pepper for the neuralgia, multivitamin, St Johns wort, echinacea, Astragalus, ashwagandha. I was on monolaurin and lauricidin for 4 months and it didn't help. So I stopped taking it. Maybe should take it now that I'm taking BHT. Was on Valtrex 1- 2 grams a day and still having outbreaks, switched to Famvir and still the same. Tried colloidal silver or 2 weeks and didn't see improvement. Running out of options here. Hope that something works.

Hello again Rocio,

Thanks for responding to my post to your original post. I'd recommended Colloidal Silver and observed that you had occasional outbreaks over the years but now it is constant which led me to conclude that the virus is now systemic throughout your system. You commented back that you had tried CS for two weeks.

In my post to you I said it would take many months to kill a system wide infection. If you revisit my suggestion the amount of time for dealing with a system wide infection is a lengthy one and also I recommended echinacia, if I recall correctly. Both, CS and echinacea can be applied topically too. Finally, look at the ppm on the label. Make sure the ppm is sufficient. I recommend one of over 100 ppm. The ones that say 5 ppm, I have little confidence in.

Hi. Thanks for all suggestions. It's just puzzling how 10 years go by without major problems and in 9 months my life has been turned upside down by this.

I've changed my diet since I started having frequent outbreaks. I used to be able to eat anything except peanuts and not have an outbreak. Guess I didnt kniw how lucky I was all that time. Now it's no sodas diet or not. Almost eliminated all sugar and bread. No juices. Just drink water with lemon for PH. I have been taking ACV 3 times a day in the last 2 weeks. 2-3 garlic cloves a day. Salads, fruit, Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey, eggs, cheese, turkey, chicken, veggies.

I have lost 15 lbs due to my diet change. Used to jog but stopped for 3 months thinking it may be the cause. But started doing it again. Used to practice hot yoga and stopped that too thinking it was causing stress on my body.

Lloyd. I will try the CS. The one I took before was 250 Ppm from Natural path silver wings. I drink Echinacea tea 2 times a day as well as lemon balm tea. Like I've said before, I've tried it all. Spent so much money on it all and seen little to no change. I've tried all natural stuff and now trying BHT for a month and still having outbreaks. It's very frustrating.

My ob/gyn put me on anti anxiety meds thinking it may be the cause but how can I not be anxious when I keep having weekly episodes...

Posted by Lloyd (Charlotte) on 09/10/2013

Hello Rocio,

On the echinacea, use the liquid found in health food stores. It is a concentrate that is medicinal... Important to apply topically as well as four or five drops in water and that drink three times daily. A "tea" is not strong enough. Putting both the C Silver on topically as well as orally is the strategy.

I've made my own for 20 years and have found some producers make varieties that just don't seem to work. By way of example I had obtained a "super fine superior" CS and was experimenting with it in my sinus and a sinus cold actually started while I was using this "super" silver... The cold got worse even as I increased the dose and finally, after two days used my own home made version and INSTANTLY the infection was gone. To know if you have the most effective CS use the brand you have been using on.... Say on a sore throat... The brand of CS should knock that out instantly... After two "gargles"... if it doesn't then the type of CS being used is actually inferior despite the claims on the label being "the best" etc.

Oh, and about the echinacea, I've seen some writers who don't like the echinacea being used orally for more than a few months. But one book I read by a Doctor around the 1900s used it to treat spider bites had his patients drinking it (five drops in water) four or five times daily for six months made no mention of adverse effects from such heavy consumption.

Hello Rocio,

I know that these posts are super old, but I came across them in my BHT research. Your story hit me so hard, it is exactly what I have been going through for the past year. I have also tried everything under the sun! I wanted to find out how you are and if you have had any success.

Thank you, Jennifer

OSCAR: Please advise an amount of BHT for someone who fluctuates between 96 and 104 lbs. Thanks so much.

You just have to try it find out. I'd try 175 or 200 mg once a day for a while. If that's too much you can always stop it for a week or two and resume at a lower dose.

I've been taking BHT for my hep c for a week and a half and it seems to be making things worse so far. My health amd chronic fatigue associated with the hep c has greatly improved over the last year because of changes in diet and the use of other supplements but the last 3 or 4 days the chronic fatigue feeling has returned. Has this happened to anyone else? Wondering if I should stop.

To Chadsm138 from Texas, I have always advised caution with the use of BHT. If you choose to try this treatment you have to find a dosage you are OK with. How much do you weigh and how much BHT are you taking ? Generally the less you weigh the less you should be taking. As little as 350mg or less of BHT per day is often enough for a 200 pound person. So if you weigh 150 pounds or so 200mg to 250mg per day may be plenty. Even that may be too much. Start with a low dose [ these capsules are easy to pull apart ] and work up to a dose you are OK with. You can always take a capsule every other day as a way of lowering your daily dosage of BHT. If adverse effects persist you may wish to discontinue the BHT treatment entirely. That is up to you... Oscar

I've read about how bht can be toxic to the liver. How can someone take it for hep c if it hurts the liver? Also, some sources say to take it on an empty stomach and some say take it with food. Which is it?

To Oscar. I am 168 pounds and was taking 500mg a day for a few days but dropped to 250. I still feel very tired and almost fell asleep at church this morning. That's really the only side effect I have. My dyshidrotic eczema actually is gone so I know some good things are happening. It has been months and months since I've had chronic fatigue problems associated with the hep c. Just wondering if you've heard anything similar as far as side effects.

Hepatitis C
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 07/16/2013

Dear Chadsm138, My advice for anyone who feels that BHT is in any way adversely effecting them is to take less BHT. You do mention that this eczema condition is gone since you began taking the BHT. That does seem to inicate something good is happening with this treatment.

Also, I do recommend taking a vitamin B complex tablet once a day and 1mg tablet of vitamin B12 per day. 1mg [ milligrams ] is the same as 1,000mcg [ micrograms ] Vitamin B12 is sold in micrograms. These B vitamins should help with this fatigue you have discussed.

Have you had any blood tests done since you started taking the BHT ? Such tests are needed to evaluate how well the BHT is working as a treatment for hepatitis C. I am talking about liver function tests and the viral load count test. The liver function tests are NOT expensive. They cost about 30 to 35 dollars for LIVER PANEL TESTS. The viral load count costs about 300 dollars. These tests are important. You should at the very least have that standard liver panel series of blood test done to find out how well your liver is functioning... Oscar

Where to Buy
Posted by Kevin (Yakima, Wa) on 06/25/2013

I'm wondering wear one might buy BHT (offline)? Like what kind of places might sell it, if one does not wish to purchase it online?

Where to Buy
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 06/26/2013

To Kevin from Yakima, WA. You pretty much have to buy BHT from an online retailer. It is sold in a very few if any health food stores these days. But you can do so by mail with a money order and need not use a credit card and such. That the way it is with buying BHT nowdays....Oscar

The only BHT I can find locally is from a chemical supply store (sold by the kilo). They said it wasn't food grade, they called it technical grade, and said it was the lowest grade, used to supply labs.

I plan on applying the BHT topically (on the skin) (as Steven Fowkes describes in the BHT book). Can anyone verify if this BHT is safe to use?

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 06/25/2013

Dear Glenda from Israel, Try to find out if you can buy some good quality BHT through the mail. I understand that in Israel you HAVE to buy BHT in bulk. But that is NO reason for not finding a company that sells good quality BHT. I don't live in Israel so I do NOT know what companies sell BHT to people in Israel. But it seems foolish to me to settle for less than good quality BHT. There are a very many companies selling BHT through the mail. Find one that sells good quality BHT in bulk through the mail....Oscar

Thanks for replying, Oscar. I know it would be better to buy something that is food grade or food additive grade, but it will take me a long time to get a hold of that, and in the meantime the virus is doing damage that may not be reversable. The BHT I mentioned is available immediately.

I asked them for a purity report, and they will get back to me. I need know how pure it needs to be for transdermal use. I'd appreciate it if anyone can answer this question (not just a guess). I don't want to harm myself.

Thanks in advance!

Dear Glenda from Tel Aviv, You are asking for guarantees NO one here can possibly give you. NO one here knows with any certainty just what this less than food grade BHT is. What potentionaly harmful impurities exist in this BHT.

STOP wasting time struggling with that issue. Pay the additional fees to get a prompt delivery from a company selling food grade BHT. If YOU get serious about it you can probably get delivery in three days or LESS.

Also: What disease or condition are you hoping to treat with BHT ? By the way: There are NO guarantees here or anywhere else. Even proven and prescribable treatments such as antibiotics for bacterial infections do NOT always work for everyone. Just calm down, do what you can to find a reliable seller of food grade BHT and pay for that prompt delivery. This condition, whatever it is, did not develop overnight or did it ? ...Oscar

Hepatitis C
Posted by Priscilla (Uxbridge, Ma) on 06/11/2013

I read your post where you said "keep it simple." I take 200 mgs/day of ibuprophen for a muscle tear and it helps tremendously. I also have hep-c and would like to try BHT. Would the ibuprophen interfere with the BHT absorbtion? thanks much, New to this site.

Hepatitis C
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 06/11/2013

Dear Priscilla from Uxbridge MA, I don`t see any problem with you using ibuprophen with the BHT treatment as long as you do NOT take them at the same time. Wait at least two hours before or after taking the one or the other. Ibuprophen does put an additional strain on the liver. But the same is true for any pain reliever. Many people using the BHT treatment are on some type of pain medication including ibuprophen for one reason or another. It is best not to take these pain medications, but people do need relief from pain at times.

Please keep this forum updated with your experience with the BHT treatment for hepatitis C. Wishing you well and to be well, ...Oscar

Just wanted to say for the record, (and not to dampen spirits, that's not what I'm about) a few things about my Chronic HCV in general. I'm 29 and tested positive for Hep C at 16. Being Canadian (access to free health care) I've monitored my condition over the years. It has been all over the map, and my blood work results quite often don't match how I feel. It's very difficult to tell what helps and what doesn't. For example, for two years I was homeless, living in a tent, using drugs, and everything that goes along with that. My levels etc. Seemed to show a marked improvement in liver function during that time, which baffled me. All in all, I go by how I feel, and now that I've been drug free for over 2 years I feel alright. The 2 biggest improvements I made to my health tho, were quiting smoking (constant lung infections have stopped completely) and cutting out salt and sugar, especially sugar. Another important step for my liver and overall health was getting off all the prescription meds doctors told me I needed. My life is so much better without them. Everyone beware Quetiapine/Seroquel! It's being handed out like candy to the addicted, the mentally ill, and people with sleep problems (tho it hasn't been tested for sleep).

I am interested in this BHT, wondering if it helps HCV, or if it has ever cured it. I will research it, but any info from anyone who's been "cured" of HCV by BHT would be greatly appreciated. Enough accronyms for one night!

To Sasha from Canada, BHT cured me of chronic hepatitis C with liver failure. But for it to work you need to keep it simple. By that I mean NOT mixing it with other treatments including milk thistle and such. The dosage used depends on how much you weigh and other things. Start with no more than 250mg of BHT per day. If you weigh less than 130 pounds that may be plenty enough. Vitamin B12 helps in a dose of 1mg wich is the same as 1, 000mcg [ micrograms ]. Vitamin E supplements should be AVOIDED, not taken. Do NOT drink grapefruit juice with this treatment. Do NOT take lysine supplements. It has worked very well for many if taken as recommended. Check out this websites archives about it here:

I can attest to the fact that since I quit taking Milk Thistle, the BHT 350mg per day is working better. My Liver Function Tests have returned to near normal values, they were in the 300 range. I would also like to add that people who are taking Coconut Oil for the Monolaurin content need to be cautious as it can build up plaque in the ateries. I have since reduced my intake and am not feeling as sluggish. The simple use of BHT 350mg plus 1-4mg of B12 and Vitamin D3 500mg are helping as well. I also take Chanca Piedra 500mg with breakfast and it has drastically reduced the pain I have in the lower right lobe of my liver. I do take Oxycontin 10mg 3x in the night for pain for another condition and am surprised that my Liver Enzymes are near normal range and the GGT is 23.

This BHT is wonderful stuff, but I am noticing that the people with Chronic Hepatitis are having trouble compared to Acute Hepatitis but for the most it just takes longer to heal.
