Cirrhosis | Hepatitis C: Information And Treatment With Quercetin

Acute Hepatitis C occurs within the first 6 months after infection. When an Acute Hepatitis C persists beyond six months, it leads to Chronic Hepatitis C. Chronic Hepatitis C is a serious disease that can result in long-term health problems like cirrhosis, liver cancer or even death.

In majority of the cases, Acute Hepatitis C progresses to Chronic Hepatitis C. This progression is influenced by age, gender, alcohol consumption, HIV co-infection and having a fatty liver.

How do I fight against Hepatitis C?

Currently, there is no vaccine available against Hepatitis C. There is also no medication for Acute Hepatitis C, as doctors would usually just recommend rest, adequate nutrition and fluids.

The treatment for Chronic Hepatitis C is a combination of two medicines: Interferon and Ribavirin. However, the majority of infected people do not respond to this treatment and the medicines can cause serious side effects in some patients.

But in a few cases of infected people, they clear out the virus from their bodies without treatment and not develop into chronic infection.

The best option is to go for prevention by reducing the risk of infected blood to blood contact. This can be done by avoiding the sharing of items that can be easily contaminated such as needles, razors, toothbrushes, cuticle scissors and other manicuring or pedicuring equipment. Another way is to ensure proper sterilization of medical and dental equipment as well as tattooing and piercing implements. Additionally, blood transfusion and organ donations should be strictly regulated and monitored.

It has also been found that quercetin reduces the production of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) by disrupting its viral life cycle, thereby, modestly reducing its viral protein accumulation in HCV. Quercetin is found in fruits, vegetables, leaves and grains. Several laboratory studies show that it may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and it is being investigated for a wide range of potential health benefits. Treatment with quercetin reduced the infectious particle production to nontoxic concentrations of HCV.

One of Gene-Eden’s ingredients is quercetin. Gene-Eden is a broad range, all natural, antiviral supplement. This health supplement targets viruses during their chronic or latent phase or during their incubation phase, thus, giving the immune system the much needed boost to fight off viruses. With quercetin as one of the ingredients in Gene-Eden, it makes an excellent defense against the Hepatitis C Virus which can reduce its concentrations to harmless levels.

Gene-Eden employed scientific research, scanning and analyzing numerous scientific literature as well as laboratory and clinical studies that were published in scientific journals. Medical practitioners have endorsed the Gene-Eden natural antiviral supplement and its effectiveness, likewise, people who have used the product attest to its great results.

  1. Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!
