I forgot to mention that you should not make an infustion or extract
of this herb. Merely spoon measure it and place it on your tongue,
wash down with water. It is usually a light and dry powder, so avoid
inhaling while it is in your mouth so as not to get it into your
lungs, you'll end up having a cough fest if you do. It has no
unpleasant taste, just a mild spice-like quality to it. The reason I
tell you this is that the medical community abandoned studies of it
when they found that extracts of the herb were ineffective, yet the
whole plant did ... people. They could not reproduce its curative
properties in their drug factories and therefore could not patent it
(and make a significant financial gain off your suffering) so they
abaondoned it and don't bother telling anyone the ... exists now.
They found this ... back in 1987-1988 and the studies were done in
the u.s.a. (As reported in "The Lancet" in 1988.)
(Several people have found recent articles on follow-up studies that
totally discount the results that B.S. Blumberg and associates found.
I personally suspect these negative studies are being authored and
distributed by the same companies that are still trying to find a
financially profitable ... (and wouldn't want word to get out about
something that would make all their research and investments useless).
Lets face it, after I found out about this herb and their hiding the
information about it all these years, it became OBVIOUS to me that
they only care about money, saving lives is of no importance to

Subject: Re: Treatment for Hepatitis B/C
I'll second that. I had Hep. B at about the time all there was for an HIV
test was a thing called HTLVIII (1984), so the Drs. wondered if I weren't
HIV positive also. I wasn't, but they never told me that. A friend who
was a homeopathic nurse, treating both ailments, gave me the above herbs,
minus the grape root and with the thistle--also I did goldenseal root
powder in capsules and stinging nettles in the above mixture and slipppery
elm for the nausea. The symptoms subsided almost immediately with the
tea, so at least I could get around normally and wasn't in pain. I had
900+ liver functions for 18 months but am now Hep free and my liver is
fine. I am CONVINCED that it was the herbs. I knew nothing about any of
that stuff before and I am now a convert. It *is* vile, though. I used
to keep batches in the refrigerator, add Sweet N Low and pretend it was
iced tea. Good luck to you.
