Would you be willing to share what vitamins and home remedies you are
Not at all. Some of what I do is for other problems that I had, so I'll
attempt to separate the list.
On a daily basis, I take a multi vitamin, extra C with thiamin, vitamin B 1,
a 50 mg. multi vitamin B tab, milk thistle, vitamin E. I drink tea, water,
and fruit juices with an occasional cup of coffee. I eat leafy green salads,
rather than iceberg lettuce. I don't steer away from red meat, but I haven't
banned it from my diet, either.
For nausea, I chew on coriander seed (don't swallow the hulls, they make me
throw up and may do the same to Phil). When I am truly exhausted, but can't
sleep, I pour a cup of "South American" tea, minus the wine, of course, and
sprinkle a pinch of cardamom on top. I drink a lot of water with lemon or lime
squeezed in it.
Periodically, I eat cashews to sort of clear myself out.
For dry skin, I use bag balm. I think somebody posted that WalMart carries
it. I buy mine at the local feed and seed.
I seem to pick up a lot of sinus problems. That was a problem before the
HCV, but has become worse. I try to remember to drink ginger tea, or ginger in
boiled down water. You can also stick your nose over the pot while the ginger
If I think of anything else or find anything else, I'll let you know. Of
course, I pray a lot. And try not to get too frustrated.
