Hepatitis C has been called the silent disease. That is because there is damage going on inside and we don’t even know it. We may not even look like we’re sick. I had friends who didn’t know I was sick with end stage liver disease. It surprised me, because sometimes liver disease has some side effects that show. One of them is hair problems.
Everyday liver support
I know I already mentioned that milk thistle offers fantastic liver support. But it bears repeating…milk thistle is the best remedy for an overburdened liver. And it’s not just great for serious liver problems like mushroom poisoning. It’s also great for times when you’ve had one too many cocktails, when your liver’s sluggish due to prescription medications or if you’ve been eating a lot of junk food. Heck, if it can help people with cirrhosis, liver disease and hepatitis (which it’s been shown to do in several studies), it can handle a few too many glasses of wine and a big mac too. It is known that for each 100 chronic Hepatitis C patients, 20 will develop liver cirrhosis. Liver cirrhosis is a nasty scarring of the liver, which can progress into Liver cancer. It has infected over 180 million people around the world, and is now responsible for the majority of liver transplants, Hepatocellular carcinoma and also the major cause of death among HIV co-infected patients.
