Natural Remedies for Hepatitis
Hepatitis A is one of five known viruses that cause inflammation of the liver (the others are B, C, D and E). The vast majority of people recover from the infection within six months without any serious health problems.
Hepatitis B is very common in Asia, China, Philippines, China, Africa and the Middle east. In Europe and North America the incidence of known carriers is about 1 in a 1000 people. World wide, it is estimated that 10 to 30 million people become infected with the virus each year.
Hepatitis C  infection is increasing worldwide. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 170 million individuals throughout the world are infected with Hepatitis C.
Hepatitis D is a liver disease with symptoms are similar to Hepatitis B and may include fever, lack of energy, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, and jaundice. Some who have Hepatitis D have no symptoms. Up to 20% of Hepatitis D infections are fatal. Infected persons may recover or develop chronic, long-term Hepatitis D (carrier) and are at risk for cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and liver failure.
Chronic Hepatitis Symptoms

Taking a natural approach to Hepatitis means focusing on supporting the liver and keeping the immune system healthy.
Reishi Mushroom has shown favorable results in treating hepatitis, especially in cases without severe impairment of liver function (Chang & But, 1986). In a study of 355 cases of hepatitis B treated with Wulingdan Pill, which includes the fruiting body of Reishi, 92.4% of the patients had positive results (Van et al, 1987).
Reishi Mushroom balances the immune system - a remedy of first choice for all auto-immune disorders, it also aids liver function and circulation.  It is a broad acting remedyand can be taken on a long-term basis.  Reishi has been classed as the highest value healing herb in China for thousands of years. Reishi fits well into any healing programme, as a general tonic and as an immune modulator that tends to calm down the destructive aspects of the immune system often a stumbling block in the treatment of chronic health problems.  At the same time Reishi will improve immune response where it is under functioning.
Milk Thistle is renowned as a liver tonic.  In 1960, German scientists identified a group of active ingredients collectively called silymarin from Milk Thistle, mainly from the seeds. Silymarin protects the liver by strengthening the outer membranes of liver cells, which prevents toxins from entering the cells. Silymarin also stimulates protein synthesis in liver cells, which helps to regenerate and repair the liver.  Silymarin compounds are also strong antioxidants, and have been shown to reduce damage to liver cells caused by repeated use of some prescription drugs.  They may protect liver from alcohol damage, cirrhosis, hepatitis, and pollutants.
Black Seed Oil improves liver function and associated digestive problems. The warming and bitter qualities seem to penetrate into blockages in the body and rapidly instigate normalisation.  Black Seed has an unprecedented strengthening effect upon the immune system, and works in a host of other ways to promote optimum health and well being.  This remarkable herb has a legendary status and has had a recent resurgence in Western medicine.   Its efficacy is solidly backed by three thousand years of folklore and the past fifty years have seen a burgeoning amount of scientific data to further support Black Seed's renowned healing properties.
In Japan, physicians use Liquorice to treat chronic Hepatitis B. Glycyrrhizin interferes with hepatitis B surface antigen and is synergistic with interferon against hepatitis A virus. It is also used at times to treat hepatitis C. Researchers have also demonstrated that liquorice helps protect the liver from damage due to chemotherapy. At low doses, the herb stimulates the liver to manufacture cholesterol and excrete it in bile. This can help lower serum cholesterol levels.
The "Natural Antibiotics" - Colloidal Silver and Olive Leaf Capsules may be useful in cases of Hepatitis.  Ongoing research may eventually restore Colloidal Silver to its once accepted status as probably the most versatile and effective natural agent against bacteria.     It has a hugely important bonus in that bacteria find it almost impossible to develop resistance to it.Olive Leaf works on fungal, bacterial and viral infections.  A wonderful natural remedy that  has other benefits such as anti-oxidant effects and can be helpful for the circulation. Please see the full Olive Leaf Extract Capsules article for more in depth information.
Zell Oxygen will strengthen the immune system by re-establishing healthy cellular mitocondria and in turn health cellular respiration and metabolism. By using Zell Oxygen in combination with one or more of the natural antiseptics such as Olive Leaf Capsules or Colloidal Silver, a more rapid, through and permanent elimination of pathological micro-organisms will result.
The use of Sterols and Sterolins will further strengthen the immune system and specifically Help T cell production.
