Natural and Alternative Hepatitis (B or C) Treatment Options

Hepatitis (B or C) Treatment {introduction}

Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are both infectious diseases of the liver, which if not detected early can become chronic. Chronic infection can lead to severe liver damage, liver cancer, cirrhosis or liver failure. Symptoms of acute Hepatitis C include dark urine, jaundice, abdominal pain, fatigue, nausea and loss of appetite. These symptoms can appear six to 12 weeks after exposure, if at all. The symptoms of acute Hepatitis B are the same as those of Hepatitis C, in addition to joint pain and fever. If symptoms appear, it is usually three months after exposure to the virus and can last up to six months.
The Hepatitis B virus is transmitted through certain bodily fluids and can be contracted through sexual intercourse with an infected person, the sharing of needles, contact with blood infected with Hepatitis B, or from mother to child during child birth. The most common form of transmission of Hepatitis C is needle-sharing; however, it is rarely passed from mother to child or through sexual intercourse.
Below you will find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for Hepatitis (B or C).

TCM Diagnostic Patterns Related to Hepatitis (B or C)

Listed below are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic patterns that are commonly involved with this western medical condition/symptom. Properly applied, Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture and herbal medicine) treats patterns not individual symptoms/conditions which may better account for the range of symptoms often experienced by individuals. Pattern diagnosis/treatment is a crucial part of using Chinese Medicine for disease prevention instead of focusing on solely symptomatic treatments as is somewhat more common in western medicine. For more on this concept, please read What Does Acupuncture Treat? Or Treating the "Cause" and not the "Symptoms".
