I am firm believer that a healthy diet with exercise can cure many illnesses and disease. Cleaning the mind from stress is the best medicine; almost like a placebo effect.
I've not had much support from the medical community regarding my Hep C. I posted my story with the subject, new to the site looking for support. Once my levels became undetectible and my insurance changed, I have been seen by the same internist now who states year after year, the Hep C is not found in my body; yet won't tell me I'm cured (unlike my previous Hepatologist). Regardless does anyone have thoughts about drinking alcohol after going through treatment.
I was hesitant and didn't for years but my internest told me to get out and enjoy life and to drink. I was a bit surprised because I just assumed if I had Hep C at any point in my life I shoud probably avoid alcohol altogether to ensure a healthy liver since at one point it was being destroyed by Hep. Anyway, I asked the Dr. how much is too much and he stated I can drink as much as I want. I'm not a drinker anyway so I have a glass of wine or two a week but that's about it.
I just found it weird to be pushed by a doctor with the history I had but then I haven't found anybody who is claiming to be in the same situation as me after treatment.
I've been so confused about
it, I sent an email to my original Hepatologist who treated me in 2000 and asked for some input. Hopefully he'll or his collegues will respond.
