Hep C And What You Eat!

HELLO TO EVERYONE, I CAN ONLY GUESS HOW I GOT HEP C, BUT BACK IN 1974 I WAS A IV USER. NOW 35 YRS LATER AND 52 IT SHOWS UP GENO 1a, LOAD 10 MIL AND GROWING. WILL NOT DO THE Tx, BUT I HAVE BEEN DOING MY HOMEWORK AND WILL TAKE SUPPLEMENTS AND EAT THE RIGHT FOODS THAT WILL HELP MY LIVER. THE DRS ONLY KNOW MEDICINE AND THEY DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HEP C EXCEPT GIVING YOU THOSE NASTY INTERFERONS. HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE GOT THE VACCINE FOR HEP A&B? DO YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD, I HAD TO TELL MY DR AND HE SAID YES YOU SHOULD. HE SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT, POINT BEING YOU HAVE TO HELP YOURSELF BEAT THIS. HERE IS A SMALL LIST OF FOODS. HAVE A GREAT DAY AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL FIGHTING THIS BATTLE!!!

Foods to consider:
Dandelion greens, burdock root, mustard greens, black radish, apples and saffron, watercress, beets, parsley, artichokes, cherries, grapefruit, parsnips, endive, garlic, onion, chicory, carob, horseradish, kumquats, limes, quinces, grapes. Include artichokes in the diet, they protect the liver.
Lemon juice mixed with water, upon rising in the morning 30 minutes before eating and a teaspoon of olive oil (virgin cold pressed) has been shown to stimulate the production of bile.

Foods to avoid
Saturated fats, meat, alcohol, hot sauces, spicy foods, fried foods, fatty foods, rich foods, salty foods, cow's milk and other dairy products, white bread, refined foods, processed foods, sugar and sweets, phlegm-forming foods, meat, ice cream, shellfish, coffee, caffeine, unpurified water and other foods that don't agree with you.
Trans-fatty acids, hydrogenated oils (margarine, vegetable shortenings, imitation butter spreads, most commercial peanut butters) oxidized fats (deep fried foods, fast food, ghee, barbecued meats)
Refined, simple carbohydrates: sucrose, white flour, processed foods.
