Can you suggest some good homeopathic medicines against hepatitis b chronic?

Recommend Against: Many homeopathic medications can be harmful to the liver. They are just more chemicals that the liver has to process (yes, homeopathic medications are chemicals). If cirrhosis is present, this can be even worse. Milk thistle is likely to be safe, but there is no clear data that this is beneficial. Many of my patients feel better taking it, however. ...Read more

Hi, I have reactive hepatitis b and I want to proceed on medical course, do I have still chance to go on studying medicine?

There is always: A chance and hope. Start your medical studies once the viral load is low and your immune system is strong and stable. Follow your doctor's advice. Sensible advice is to avoid taking tylenol (acetaminophen) and drinking alcohol.Eat nutritious foods, more fruits and veggies. Take care and god bless u! http://www. Ghanaweb.

My advice is, always practice safe sex, don't share needles, get vaccinated against Hep B, and get tested. ...Read more
