Two cases of hepatitis C treated with herbs and supplements.
The treatment of two cases of hepatitis C using herbal medicine and nutritional supplements is presented. The selection of medicinals was based upon both biomedical findings and traditional Chinese medical diagnosis. The text describes the course of each patient's illness documented both subjectively and objectively using blood values and traditional Chinese medicine analysis as parameters. Explanation and/or citations are given for each medicinal used. Both patients improved during the course of treatment; subjective signs and symptoms (especially fatigue) as well as liver enzyme levels demonstrated improvement.
