Cure Hepatitis With These Natural Remedies
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. The causes can be: a virus, a bacterium or some toxic substance. However, in most cases, the virus is the cause. In fact, there are several types of hepatitis.
Weakness, nausea, headache, vomiting, fever, muscle aches, loss of appetite, drowsiness, dark-colored urine, stiffness and joint pain, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, constipation, light-colored stools and often jaundice (yellowish skin color, which is first noticed in the eyes and mucous membranes). Skin rash and itching may occur, caused by excess bile under the skin.
Hepatitis A (infectious hepatitis, HVA) – It is transmitted through contaminated water, milk or food. The incubation period lasts 15-45 days. Infectiousness is greatest before the onset of the disease; so people who work with food can transmit it. Hepatitis A is contagious 1-2 weeks before it manifests. It is easily transmitted by touch, food, clothing, bedding, etc. It can also be transmitted by animals. Consuming oysters is a good way to get this disease, even if the water from which it is taken meets all state standards. Recovery usually takes 4 weeks. The chances of chronic cases are lower.
Hepatitis B (serum hepatitis, CVD) – It is found everywhere in the world and is transmitted just like AIDS – by contact with infected blood (contaminated needles, syringes, blood transfusions) and sexual contact. Six cases of disease due to contaminated acupuncture needles have been reported. About 5% of Americans and 85% of homosexuals suffer from this disease. Hepatitis B is a very dangerous disease. The incubation period lasts 28-160 days (2-6 months). It can be passed on to other people during this period. An increasing number of cases suffer from chronic active hepatitis. Which can lead to liver cirrhosis and death. Hepatitis B is the ninth leading killer in America.
Hepatitis C (HCV) – Like hepatitis B and AIDS, it may take 6 months for symptoms to appear; it is transferable to others during that period. About 20-40% of all hepatitis cases are of this type. It accounts for 90-95% of all cases of hepatitis caused by blood transfusions. About 85% of infections lead to chronic liver disease.
Hepatitis E – It also exists, but is of minor importance. Hepatitis E is found everywhere in the world; it is epidemic in India, Mexico, Africa and Asia. It is mainly obtained from water contaminated by sewage. Such water should be boiled before consumption.
Toxic hepatitis – The above types are primarily of viral origin, while this type is caused by toxic substances. The degree of exposure of the liver to toxic chemicals, smoke, drugs and others, determines the amount of damage caused to that organ. The poison can be absorbed through the skin.
In general, 40,000-70,000 new cases of various types of hepatitis are reported in America each year. Experts say that there are probably 10 times more patients because most of them are unreported. Hepatitis mainly affects young people, especially teenage girls.
The number of cases of hepatitis A is decreasing, while the number of cases of hepatitis B is sharply increasing. It is the fourth of 30 leading infectious diseases.
In China, 10% of the population suffers from hepatitis at any given time, e.i., 100 million new cases each year. The rate of liver cancer is very high, which is to be expected.
- Provide the patient with care that applies to all infectious diseases. Just remember that hepatitis is a highly contagious disease.
- Apply 15-minute warm commentations on the liver area, followed by soaking in cold water and showering. Do this 4 times a day. Most cases of hepatitis are treated with rest and constant care.
- The patient should rest in bed until the acute phase has passed; also, it should be on a liquid diet, followed by a light diet. Often the patient has no appetite and does not want to eat, although he should. Drink a glass of water with lemon juice every morning or other fruit juices. Consuming a glass of carrot juice, beets, or cucumbers every other daycould be very helpful.
- Do not consume sugar, fat, alcohol and tobacco.
- Vitamin B12 (1000 mcg) and vitamin C (lemon, kiwi) are important, as well as vitamin A (carrot juice) and B group vitamins.
- Clinical studies have shown that two amino acids – L-cysteine and L-methionine (5000 mg twice a day), unsaturated fatty acids (2 teaspoons of flaxseed oil) and choline (1-3 g) accelerate the recovery process from hepatitis.
- Take grapefruit seed extract (10 drops in juice 3 times a day for a month).
- Dr. Robert Katkart says that hepatitis is the easiest disease to treat with ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
- Drink plenty of water (preferably distilled) and bathe often.
- Fresh or cooked garlic, or in capsules.
- Beware of constipation; and wash your hands after each bowel movement. The larger cups should also be washed each time after use.
- A sick person must not prepare food for others, while his cutlery should be sterilized after each meal. Their bedding and clothes should be washed separately.
- Do not take drugs that irritate the liver too much: tranquilizers (sedatives), aspirin, certain tetracyclines, antidepressants and antibiotics. Tylenol (acetaminophen) and iron supplements are very toxic to the liver.
- Eating meat and fish, especially if they are not well cooked, can cause a bacterial or viral infection.
- Physical activity should be limited for several months after recovery. Avoid strenuous sports.
- St. John’s wort (300 mg capsules 2 times a day) and shiitake (1500-2000 mg 2 times a day with meals) help the liver in this case.
- For an excellent liver tonic, mix equal parts of mahogany, pips, dandelion, fennel seeds and blissful beech (Benedictine thorn). Take 3 cups a day.
- Boxwood (barberry) is one of the mildest and best tonics for the liver. Take 10-30 drops of tincture daily.
- Sycamore (guja grass) contains silymarin, which stimulates the production of proteins in the liver from amino acids and helps liver regeneration. Take 150 mg tablets or capsule extract 3-4 times a day; or 15-30 drops of tincture in water 2 times a day for 2 weeks. It is important that you take this!
- Put one teaspoon of dried lemon balm in a cup of boiling water, cook for 15 minutes, drain and drink 2-3 cups a day.
- You can drink buttercup tea 1-3 times a day.
- To alleviate the discomfort, put castor oil compresses on the liver area and keep warm. Burdock leaf wraps are also good for inflammation of the liver.
- Make strong tea from mint leaves, add a little allspice and put it on the affected part in the form of a paste.
- To strengthen the liver against infections, apply alternating compresses to the area of the liver.
- A warm half bath (sitting in a half-full bath) can be used to raise body temperature, in order to strengthen the immune system, which helps fight the virus. You should drink plenty of fluids during this time.
