Hepatitis C - How To Achieve Wellbeing
Hepatitis C is a very common infection and it is estimated that more than 3 million people in the USA have it; however, many of these people do not know that they carry this virus. The hepatitis C virus is an RNA virus, which contains genetic material surrounded by a protein envelope. There are 6 main strains or genotypes of the hepatitis C virus, and around 60 subtypes have been identified.
Wellbeing is the spice of life
No matter what health problems you have, whether they include hepatitis C, depression, arthritis, autoimmune disease, etc; if you don’t feel well despite receiving treatment, then we need to look further into why that could be. Good health is typified by plenty of energy, clarity of mind, stable happy moods, good appetite, good digestion, good bowel movements, and good quality sleep. These simple parameters are the best way to judge your health.
Do you feel well even though you have had hepatitis C? If your answer is no, I urge you to try the following strategies:
Good liver health tips
- Start raw juicing – good things to juice for the liver are cabbage (red and purple), carrot, beets, orange, lemon, limes, ginger, apples, and a touch of red onion (Spanish onion) – juice every day if you can, or at least regularly. If the juice is too strong dilute it with water, celery and/or extra apple.
- Drink plenty of pure water to hydrate all your cells and flush out toxins.
- Take a selenium supplement. There is a wealth of good research about the healing properties of selenium – it’s anti-viral, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory.
- Take a vitamin C supplement in a dose of 1,000 mg daily – two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, tells us that the fact that our bodies cannot make their own vitamin C is an evolutionary defect and I agree with him.
- Take a good liver tonic to support your liver function. I recommend N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) 600 mg capsules in a dose of one to two capsules twice daily.
- If you are overweight, check your liver with an ultrasound scan – if your liver is fatty follow a low-carbohydrate diet as found in my book Fatty Liver - You can reverse it. Excessive fat in the liver will make you feel tired and sluggish and increase the risk of cirrhosis and liver cancer.
- If you are stressed, you need to work on your sleep and try to improve it; I recommend that you get at least 7 hours sleep a night. Deep restful sleep repairs damaged cells and improves the immune system’s ability to fight viruses. Magnesium can help your sleep patterns and reduces stress – I call magnesium the great relaxer!
- Make sure you are getting enough healthy fats in your diet – eat more oily fish, chia and hemp seeds, coconut flesh and milk and avocados. The predominant fat in your brain is omega 3 fat and many people are deficient in this, because like vitamin C, your body cannot make its own precious supplies.
Reduce or avoid the use of –
- Sodas and diet pop
There is a great deal more information about healing hepatitis C and other viruses in my free e-book which you can access here. Many years of research have gone into the information in that book and I’m confident it will improve your health and quality of life.
