Note: I haven’t been much on the forum while travelling in Europe and getting ready for a China trip and summer retreats. But I have lots of interesting stuff stockpiled to post when i find time…..
This article is interesting also because it points out the karmic twist – that Hep C is really coming from blood of Aborigines. Its a kind of revenge karma – we wipe out the Aborigines, then steal their blood only to find they are wiping us out slowly……:)
THE HEPATITIS EPIDEMIC AND NATURAL REMEDIES THAT CAN HELP
By Tony Isaacs
Thursday, April 3, 2008
Hepatitis C is considered an epidemic and is now killing more people than
Aids/HIV — 30,000 a year and it’s going to get much worse. Right now, 5
million Americans are infected with Hepatitis C — and most of them don’t
know it. That is 1 out of every 50 people; and some will be people you know.
The number of adults seeking liver transplants for Hepatitis C infection
will skyrocket in the next 20 years. An estimated 10,000 to 30,000 Americans
die from this disease or its complications each year. Deaths are expected to
increase because of the increasing risk of infection, and the resulting
cirrhosis, portal hypertension, thrombocytopenia, bleeding, and liver
cancer. Five years ago, 20% of Hepatitis C patients were candidates for
liver transplantation and today the number has increased to about 50%.
The Hepatitis C virus causes diabetes (40% of genotype 1 have diabetes), it
affects the brain causing depression, it causes lung problems, neuropathy,
fibromyalgia, Sjogren’s, cardiac problems, skin problems, arthritis, stomach
problems, anemia, fatigue, and of course, cirrhosis. After cirrhosis comes
decompensation. The liver stops working, the skin and sclera become yellow,
your belly looks like you’re pregnant, you’re unable to process protein, you
get anemic, confused, the kidneys stop working and many bleed to death.
Hepatitis C is called the dragon, because it sleeps for many years and one
day, suddenly, it wakes up and ends your life (people who got infected 20-30
years ago may just now find out). The Hepatitis C virus is very old and very
smart, it doesn’t kill quickly like the HIV virus or like the Ebola virus.
Hepatitis C has chosen to infect the liver — the only organ capable of
regeneration. It can remain “hidden” for many years, keeping its host alive
and using our own immune system against us.
Nobody knows exactly where it came from. During World War II, an unlicensed
yellow fever vaccine was released to immunize our troops who were going to
the South Pacific. To stabilize the vaccine, scientists used serum from
Australian Aborigines, hoping they were immune to endemic illnesses and that
immunity would then be passed to our troops. Years later, it was discovered
that 50% of the Aborigines had Hepatitis B and C. A study done by the
Veteran’s Administration later proved that over 320,000 of our troops were
infected. Thousands of them fell ill with hepatitis and hospitalized or
quarantined in their barracks. When they came back home, they were
encouraged to donate blood. A monster, with the power to mutate, had just
Hepatitis C is transmitted through blood only. That means blood transfusions
with contaminated blood before 1992 (because blood was not screened),
tattoos, body piercing, needle sticks, IV drugs with contaminated needles,
manicures that made you bleed (instruments are not sterilized), sharing
razors, toothbrushes, anything that could pass infected blood to your blood.
Even doing IV drugs once could have given you the virus or sharing straws
with someone that had nasal sores or bleeding.
A mutating virus for which there is no vaccine, Hepatitis C has many strains
and substrains. By the time they figure something about it, it’s already
mutated into something stronger. 70-75% of people have genotype 1, the
strain most difficult to treat (95% of Veterans who have Hep C have genotype
1). The success rate with traditional modern medicine treatment is only
about 50% and treatment is a whole year and side effects from the
medications are cruel.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), by the year 2008, the
cases of decompensation will increase 279%, liver-related deaths 223% and
the need for liver transplantation 528%. Considering that we don’t have
enough organs now and people die on transplant lists, far too many of those
precious lives will be lost. For those fortunate enough to find a donor, the
process costs roughly $300,000 during the first 3 months, and can be painful
and incapacitating. Add to this the thousands of dollars for anti-rejection
drugs and the costs of aftercare and more frequent visits to health care
facilities. The other option, debilitating and woefully ineffective chemo,
runs into the tens of thousands of dollars and more and has success rates in
the mere single digits.
Fortunately, there is also good news: there are at least three excellent
inexpensive supplements that can be used for hepatitis. First of all, an
aqueous extract of the oleander plant commonly called “oleander soup” made
according to the directions in my book Cancer’s Natural Enemy
< http://www.rose-laurel.com> has had excellent results in treating Hepatitis
C. Secondly, a great many Hepatitis C sufferers have used the natural
supplement Colloidal Silver and swear by it.
And finally, there is an excellent herbal treatment regimen for Hepatitis C
that is all natural, inexpensive and was found to be extraordinarily
effective in a limited study known as the Berkson Clinical Study on
Hepatitis C. Most people in the United States are not familiar with the
Berkson Clinical Study on Hepatitis C, a study that was never published in
the United States, despite Dr. Berkson’s impressive credentials that include
Rutgers, the Max Planck Institute and the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
It has been suggested that, besides being a very limited study of only three
patients, the real reason the study has never been published in the states
is due to the fact that liver transplants are highly profitable for
mainstreams medicine, costing over $300,000 in the first three months alone,
plus many thousands of dollars afterwards for anti-rejection drugs and
In Doctor Berkson’s study, which was 100% effective in a limited study on
advanced Hepatitis C patients who were facing either transplants or chemo,
he used a combination of three commonly available and inexpensive natural
supplements, along with healthy modifications in diet, exercise and
The three supplements are:
* Milk thistle (silymarin)
* Alpha-lipoic acid
All three natural supplements are commonly available and inexpensive.
It is important to note that no one, including Doctor Berkson, suggests that
the regimen he used could be 100% effective against all hepatitis;
nevertheless, complete success in three out of three patients with little
hope is impressive and suggests that this natural alternative might offer
hope and alternatives to a great number of people with hepatitis and damaged

When treating any serious disease or illness, it is usually an excellent
idea to cleanse the body of toxins (which help promote disease and retard
healing). A liver cleanse is an essential procedure to help treat hepatitis
as well as for anyone to do as part of a healthy anti-disease lifestyle.
And, since good health begins in the gut, the same holds true for cleansing
Live long, live healthy, live happy!

My Dad has been using some of those treatments for years with great success, they only gave him two years to live, he said “fuck that”, he opened up to natural cures after that(it helpes he lives in NM). Allot of great lessons to be learned if we are open to them (true strength in the water element). Yeah he went to vietnam, “served” his country and left with a heroin addiction, jail time, and Hep C. We are slow to learn, I think we value strenth/metal element to much, it is almost commical if you look at history. Side note I just noticed the west does not have wood in there elemental system, might point to the lack of organic flow and the “dead technology” we have, ofcourse this points to the undlying cultural lean toward the sun,fire,male aspect of our souls..April 24, 2008 at 5:39 am #28022
