I already take Milk Thistle (organic), selenium (this one you can take too much of), ALA, Fringetree, Dandelion, CoQ10, Schizandra, Taurine & a pile of vitamins. These are simple supplements you can get at any quality health food store & have alleged liver protecting, immune boosting effects. To suggest these could actually cure Hep C is simply ridiculous. Again, I suggest a good healthy diet, lifestyle & supplements may help if you have liver disaease & are holding your own, certainly not ESLD. My Drs. have never given me any positive feedback regarding these supplements and in fact have asked me to go off them now that I am going to begin treatment.
I encourage you to go ahead & try what ever you believe will work for you. These supplements are not cheap (when purchased in good quality) & when I got Vit B12 shots they were outragous and I don't know if they really helped or not.
The NIH studies all kinds of things, doesn't mean they're FDA approved. I'd like to better understand what "completely recovered" means in this particular study as liver scarring can't be reversed.
I will support what ever you decide to do. I'd love to hear your hepatoolgists's opinion,
