Speaker: David Winston. New pharmaceutical treatments for hepatitis C are very effective, but the average cost for the 12 week treatment is $94,500. Due to the cost many people are not able get treatment until they show liver symptoms, which may be many years after being infected. This is unfortunate because research suggests that early treatment (before significant liver damage occurs) provides far better outcomes and a normal life expectancy. This “window of waiting” is where herbs, diet and nutritional supplements can offer major benefits by protecting the liver from inflammation and damage, reducing viral loads, preventing liver-induced GI damage, supporting the immune system and preventing adverse effects caused by pharmaceutical drugs used to treat Hepatitis B or C.
