    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

      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.'

      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,

      Pamela Venus
