Unveiling the secrets of hepatitis B treatment

Unveiling the secrets of hepatitis B treatment
A:

There are two conventional treatment options for hepatitis B: interferon and long term medication that aims to control the replication of hepatitis virus. Both treatments aim to slow down and limit damage to the liver cells. [1] But in reality, how beneficial are these treatment methods to the patients’ overall health?

 

Interferon treatment has been widely used for many years. It is not only expensive and require regular injections;  its success rate is also low and has strong side effects, sometimes the side effects are so severe that they could be life threatening. [2] Other medications for hepatitis B also have some side effects, and require lifelong use. However, due to the toxicity of the medication itself, long term use actually causes damage to  liver and kidney function, and possibly leads to other health problems such as loss of appetite, sleeping problems or even liver diseases caused by toxins.

 

The liver is the organ responsible for breaking down food and drugs. All medications and drugs taken must be processed by the liver before they take effect, but drugs themselves also contain toxicity, therefore, long term use of any medication is not beneficial for the patient’s overall health. 

In view of this, hepatitis B patients should not focus on using long term medication to kill the virus. Instead, they should aim to reduce inflammation in the liver, and enhance the function and recovery of liver cells. This is the best way to improve liver health.

 

Although Western conventional medications have yet to achieve this result, it is possible in some alternative medicine such as traditional Chinese medicine, Japanese Kampo, etc. There is a large collection of scientific studies and clinical reports that proves that reducing liver inflammation, repairing liver cells and normalising ALT level is possible and highly effective. [3][4]

 

If hepatitis B patients wish to keep to Western medicine to control the viral count, they should also pay attention to liver and kidney protection, and try to reduce or mitigate the side effects brought by long term medications.

When we feel sick, a lot of us tend to use whatever medications the doctor prescribes to us, and we are bound to follow their instructions in using these medications, right?   Not quite.   I’ve seen lots of “must have medications” that actually worsen liver function. Or at the very least, lower the quality of life. That’s because…   Medications are like French fries

NASH is inflammation in the liver developed from accumulated fat in the organ, also known as fatty liver. NASH damages liver cells and liver function, which results in elevated ALT liver enzyme level.    As there are no approved treatments for NASH, the standard recommendation for patients is to lose weight only. However this doesn’t work for everyone so if you are struggling to find a way to stop NASH, please read on.   Wha

In 2010, some 4.7 million people aged 65 years or older lived with Alzheimer's disease in the US.   Alzheimer’s is a common brain disease that causes progressive brain cell death that happens over a course of time. It will also cause a shrink in brain size as the tissue has progressively fewer nerve cells and connections. Alzheimer’s is thought to be caused by Protein Plaques building up in the brain cells, these Plaques are found between the dying cel

There are between 10 to 15 million patients in the U.S. with NASH, and among these patients, one-fifth to one-fourth are at risk for cirrhosis or chronic liver damage.   The major characteristic of NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis. The number of NASH cirrhosis patients is currently on the rise, and it is predicted (NAFLD & NASH) to be the number 1 cause of liver transplants by 2020.
