Chances are, your life or the life of someone you know, has been affected by hepatitis.
What is hepatitis?
Hepatitis simply means liver inflammation. There are many kinds of hepatitis such as: autoimmune, drug induced (Tylenol is a common drug that in excess can cause hepatitis), alcoholic, fatty liver and viral (such as hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, F). Viral hepatitis is a wold-wide epidemic. One in 10 people have hepatitis B in China. According to the American Liver Foundation, there are over 5 million Americans living with hepatitis C, and most of them don’t know it. Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is also incredibly common. It can be a complication of viral hepatitis and/or associated with heart disease and diabetes. Contrary to what you may have heard, Oriental medicine (YES, INCLUDING HERBS) can be incredibly helpful to people afflicted with hepatitis.
