Lecithin is also a good choice for your husband. I take it in granule form,
1 level teaspoon 3 times daily. Caution on Lecithin from Reader's Digest's
Guide to Drugs and Supplements- 'high doses may cause sweating, nausea,
vomiting, bloating, and diarrhea.'-I can vouch for that part! 'Because
indivudual lecithin, choline, or phosphatidylcholine supplements can
increase levels of acetylcholine, they should not be used by people who are
suffering from bipolar disorder. High levels of acetylcholine can worsen
the "depressive" stage of the condition.'
Alpha-lipoic acid is another good one-more expensive though. Caution for
Alpha-lipoic acid- 'for people with diabetes, the use of alpha-lipoic acid
may require a change in insulin or other medications.'

Subject: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] Feedback request from group & Dr.
My husband Philip recently finished the Schering Pegylated Interferon
treatment. It reduced his viral load but did not eradicate the virus. It
does appear that it has been protective of his liver for the time he was on
it-his enzyme levels were normal when he finished. One of the ways I
support Philip is through gathering information. So, I'm asking for
feedback on current options:
1. What herbs/supplements do people take to support/protect their liver?
(Philip is currently taking the Maximum Milk Thistle and a multi-vitamin).
2. What alternative treatments are available that people have had success
with? (Philip previously tried acupuncture and Chinese herbs-that didn't
work for him).
3. What are the up and coming medical treatments to watch/wait for?
Thank you so much!
Love & blessings,
Love is all there is
Peace is all there is
Joy is all there is
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om
