A person I know has recently tested positive for HepA. She has been quarantined by her doc at home, and is quite sick. She says her liver is swollen and hurts, she's lethargic and just over-all sick feeling. Which I understand is all quite normal for HepA. I also understand HepA will run its course on its own, but I thought that if I can get her to take a few simple items it might make her feel better sooner.
I need to mention she is not very open to "alternate" meds like herbs and such. She will not do any kind of cleanse, wont take Colloidal Silver , drinks diet soda like crazy, etc....
I've come up with 3 things I think I can get her to take:
1. Sambucus - I'm thinking its anti-viral properties will help shorten the duration? Since its "virologist tested" and is very similar to cold syrup I figure she will be receptive to taking it.
2. Milk Thistle - Will help her liver? My figuring is that since this is treatment for alcoholics by regular doctors she will be receptive to it.
3. Alpha Lipoic Acid - She will recognize the words "antioxidant" and I can site the Berkson Clinical Study, this should make her receptive to taking it.
What do you think of these 3 items for helping her out?
What dosages other than the one cited on the individual bottles?
