HVC Information Site; HealthyHepper Awards Johnny Delirious

Natural Recovery of HCV is an Affordable Valid Choice, not a Myth!
Hepatitis C natural recovery, survival and hope is exactly what Johnny Delirious is all about; described in his new book Hepatitis C, CURED. In May of 2009, HealthyHepper wanted to dig deep and find the facts about this recovery and interview Johnny Delirious to understand about his natural approach It revealed that Johnny does not believe in the conventional treatment for Hepatitis because up to 50% will relapse after they show no viral load in the first year, in fact, he sees it as a vicious cycle, that is expensive and is prone to relapse more as the years go by. Even Complimentary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) say there is no complimentary or alternative cure; yet Johnny is living proof that a natural cure works. Because of his unique perspective Johnny Delirious has become a recovery pioneer in the Hepatitis World and Healthy Hepper puts his website in the Hall of Fame with the Inspirational Site Award. In his own words we asked him just what he means by "the vicious cycle." He gave a description and cited references on the web:

More people today will want to choose natural, herbal and alternative therapies to treat Hepatitis C. Many sufferers want to avoid the horrible side effects of interferon and liver transplants that may not show a complete cure by eliminating the virus. In these later stages the solution is usually a liver transplant.

According to WebMD.com Hepatitis C --is the number one cause of liver transplants and kills about 10,000 people a year and refers to chronic hepatitis C as a "silent epidemic," Even if the transplant is successful, the virus in their body will infect the new liver while they are simultaneously receiving the interferon treatment. Eventually, time and the virus will ravage the new liver. It is a vicious cycle, especially when you look at the cost.

The following shows that the cost of a liver transplant is well over a half a million dollars. Transplantliving.org shows a breakdown; hospitalization is around $248,000, procurement is over $59,000, the physician is over $66,000, follow-up and evaluation is over $100,000 and with the immune-suppressants and other related charges the cost totals well over $520,000.

Unfortunately most Americans cannot afford this mainly because they do not have insurance to pay for it. And even if they could pay for it, more than half would go bankrupt when they go on the treatment; a vicious cycle; death or life with bankruptcy.

On June 2, 2009, Yahoo.com published an article from Reuters that highlights this tragic fact with eye opening statitics that we have to deal with.
In that article “Medical bills underlie 60% of U.S. bankruptcies: study”, 62.1 percent of all bankruptcies in 2007 were caused by medical bills that are past due. Another astonishing fact is “most of these medical debtors were well-educated and owned homes and had middle-class occupations”. One of the researchers in the study said it does not offer the average American much hope for coverage. I begin to wonder if the average American can get over Hepatitis C using the conventional treatment; get well and not go bankrupt. The chances are very slim. Again it’s a vicious cycle for the Hepatitis C sufferer in the late stages of the disease.

So let us look at the ideal situation where the Hepatitis C sufferer has insurance, finances and is not in the late stages of the disease. What are their options? The doctors will put them on interferon treatment. Those costs are well over $60,000 even with the minimal treatment; but does this really work? Interferon may not be effective for a long term remission of the disease.

The American Liver Foundation has shown that “the initial course of treatment is 6 months and in most cases the patients relapse and require retreatment”. What this means is six more months of feeling like you have the flu every day and another $60,000. Many of the studies say that higher doses of interferon are not necessarily effective for eradicating the virus. To make matters worse many patients under the treatment experience “breakthrough”. This occurs in patients who normalized their serum ALT levels in the first few weeks of treatment, but show raised levels occurring shortly thereafter, which means they are essentially having a relapse during the treatment itself.

Is interferon a valid agent of proven efficacy? Is transplantation of the liver really an effective course of action if the chances are nearly certain that the new liver will later get the hepatitis virus from body? The patient is just going to get sick again, it is just a matter of time. Moreover, if you are one of the lucky 3% who are well in the first 4 years after treatment are you able to work? The doctors say you will always have the virus so you could relapse again within a short period of time. More to the point, could it be that the medical solution to hepatitis by ignoring natural therapies is a sure road to bankruptcy for over 60% of Americans, that it will only bring continued treatment and relapse of the Hepatitis C virus? Its a vicious cycle.

There are holistic, herbal and alternative therapies that many people have used to recover naturally from Cancer, AIDs and Hepatitis C. Doctors say the risks are too great and there is not enough research to support these therapies. It seems in reality that the risks are too great with their conventional treatment; at best there is little chance of real recovery or survival. Alternative and natural therapy is an affordable choice and chance that many Americans are willing to take getting rid of Hepatitis C once and for all wanting to avoid the conventional vicious cycle of Hepatitis treatment. I am Johnny Delirious and I have had no viral load or anti-bodies for over 15 years; I am glad I avoided the vicious cycle of modern hepatitis treatment. Take it from me, Johnny Delirious; "Natural Recovery from Hepatitis C is a CHOICE, not a Myth..
