Hepatitis B - Know About Its Treatment and Care!

Hepatitis B is a condition that causes inflammation of the liver because of the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). In India, about one million people are at the risk of being infected with HBV every year. It is unfortunate that this number is huge given the fact that Hepatitis B is a preventable disease. You just need to be vaccinated to stay safe. Untreated Hepatitis B increases the risk of liver failure and liver cirrhosis. Your treatment would depend on whether your Hepatitis B infection is acute or chronic.

Seeing the doctor
If you have not gotten your Hepatitis B vaccine yet, visit your doctor and get your shot of the vaccine as early as you can. When in doubt, the vaccine helps keep you safer.
Common symptoms of the disease include abdominal pain, lack of appetite, darker urine, yellowing of the skin, fever, joint pain and so on. In such cases, take an appointment with a gastroenterologist or a hepatologist right away.

Treatment options
Not all infected people may need treatment. For acute infection which is not long lasting, your doctor might advise you to drink plenty of fluids and bed rest for recovery.

In case of chronic Hepatitis B, the treatment is long-term, depending on how strong the virus is inside the body. Treatment at the right time also prevents you from passing on the infection to people around. The common treatments practised are:

  1. Letting the virus take its course - bed rest, intake of healthy food and fluids
  2. Anti-viral medication - prevents multiplication of virus
  3. Interferon alfa-2b injections – the manmade version of the substance your body creates naturally to ward off infections. This is a quicker way to get healthy and is chosen for people who do not prefer long-term treatments
  4. Liver transplant – For extreme conditions with severe liver damage

Post-treatment care
No treatment is complete if you are not taking an effort to bounce back to normalcy. Once you have been diagnosed with Hepatitis B, do your bit to make things better.

  1. Learn the right information about the disease and this way, you can reduce your level of stress and panic
  2. Be in constant touch with your doctors and follow up as and when required
  3. Casual contact with friends and relatives will not spread the infection. Do not cut yourself off from the society
  4. Pick healthier fruits and vegetables, stay away from alcohol, drugs, and smoking and exercise regularly

Know all about vaccinations and get your shots on time. Practice safe sex and do not share intimate items including razors, needles, and toothbrushes. Getting help at the right time will help you recover sooner.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Homeopathic Treatment For Hepatitis C!

The liver plays a significant role in the body’s various metabolic processes. Infection with hepatitis C virus causes inflammation of the liver, known popularly as Hepatitis C. It is a relatively new discovery (late 1980s), but there are a significant number of cases identified. The challenge in identifying this disease is that the patient does not manifest with any symptoms and can be carrying the virus for years with no signs or symptoms. This makes diagnosis very difficult and in most cases, it is discovered when diagnosing for some other disease. It is transmitted via blood – through use of drug needles, tattoo needles, or sexual when the virus is present in the vaginal fluid.

Homeopathic Treatment For Hepatitis C -

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat Hepatitis C infection but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for Hepatitis C treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

Homeopathy offers remedy for hepatitis C by detoxifying and neutralizing viral cells, improving immunity, and stimulating production of healthy cells. The following compounds are useful in this.

  1. Chelidonium Majus: Prepared from the flowers of Celandine, it acts on the hepatobiliary system and restores overall liver function. The patient’s presenting symptoms include jaundice with pain, bloated abdomen, significant lethargy, weakness, reduced appetite, nausea and vomiting.

  2. China Officinalis: This is useful in patients who are down with intermittent fevers, headaches, gallstones, dyspepsia and hemorrhages. The patient could also have debility, trembling, ringing in the ears, flatulence in the abdomen, gassy feeling and vomiting of bile.

  3. Bryonia Alba: This is prepared from the plant known as wild hops after potentization. It works on multiple systems including the digestive, hepatobiliary, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems. This is useful in patients who suffer from dyspepsia, migraine, bronchitis, joint pains, back pain, menstrual issues, and respiratory tract infections. The patient could also experience a burning sensation and soreness in the abdomen, which is extremely tender to the touch, along with nausea and vomiting. The symptoms are aggravated during summer months and with heat.

  4. Kali Carbonicum: The active ingredient acts of multiple bodily systems including kidneys, liver, digestive, blood, bones, lungs, etc. It is widely used in liver dysfunctions like nephrotic syndrome, cirrhosis, and hepatitis C. The patient may have liver atrophy, cirrhosis, heaviness in the abdomen or jaundice. He or she could be restless, excitable and nervous. Extreme weakness and reaction to changes in light, sound, touch and odors are some other symptoms. The pain could be relieved by rubbing.

Other medicines like Lycopodium, Belladonna, Nux Vomica, and Aconite are also useful. However, as with all homeopathy medicines, self-medication is not advisable. The doctor will check for all accompanying symptoms and your overall health status and then determine what would work for you.

hello if you are taken SVR treatment then SVR means the virus is probably permanently gone. Hepatitis C is highly unlikely to return after a person achieves SVR.
