I wouldn't nix out alternatives altogether. Some people, although not many, do
get cured with alternative medicine. You won't know unless you try. I have been
doing it for 3 years and am keeping my levels down. But, it's a long road and
one does get weary of it. Diet and lifestyle changes, too.
There are many therapies worth trying. Ozone IV therapy does kill all viruses,
bacteria, fungus and pathogens in the body. The problem is, getting it done
correctly and doing it long enough. I do know a few doctors that do say they
have patients that went to undetectable with HCV and are that way years later.
But it's a long road. It depends on your genotype, too. Interferon may not work
for everyone, and can give you horrible sides. My husband knows 2 people that
have permanent brain damage, I know 2 that lost their eyesight. One whose
tinninitus hasn't gone away after years. There is a class action suit being formed
against Schering Plough because of the permanent sides.
No one can tell you what you should or shouldn't do. No one is the same
regarding healing. You've got to do your own research and trust yourself.
Interferon kills the whole immune system, so if you are already in a weakened
state, you might want to try alternatives first.
It's going to be your decision and you are going to have to live with it.
