RE: Safe herbs for Hepatitis C

Due to the age of this thread, and the fact that Herbs do not cure Hep C, I am going to close this one from further comment.

Thanks JimmyK

Hello Renu,

Welcome to the forum. The topic of herbal remedies and their use in curing Hepatitis C has been discussed here many times. The use of any herbal supplement during treatment is not recommended by licensed medical doctors (MD, DO) or pharmaceutical manufacturers. To say there are herbal cures for HCV is completely false and the use of coloidal silver is not recommended by anyone in the modern world. The use of herbal supplements may help alleviate some symptoms, but can also make matters much worse if taken improperly. The general consensus is they serve little purpose in the world of HCV. Save your money...

yes, Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes inflammation of the liver. Treatment generally involves antiviral medications. As I research for treatment of Hepatisis according to my knowledge Milk thistle is an herb have properties that promote liver health.Sometimes sold as Silybum marianum, or as silymarin. Colloidal silver is often cited as a treatment for hepatitis C and many more herbs are available for Hepatitis C cure.

Hi there Hilda321,

I`d like to point out firstly that cholestatic hepatitis (as referred to in your link) is a completely different condition to Hepatiis C.  Hep C is a viral infection of the liver and cannot be cured by any type of herbal or botanical supplement.  

And secondly, we do not allow commercial advertising of any kind on this forum so I have removed your links.

Hello all,
Recently I was just searching for some plants that to grow in my garden. While searching I came across this peony plant XXXXXXXXX. My sister has worked with some Hep C patients and she saw this and said that peony plant can be used to cure Hep C . So I just googled to get some information and came across this XXXXXXXX Seems to be really working and hope that it may be useful to you.

Many people with Hep C choose to use certain herbs to alleviate their symptoms and help liver health.

It's important to have reliable info, since some herbs can be dangerous for people with impaired liver function.

The link below, has a comprehensive list of herbs and includes contraindications with other medications.
