Synopses & Reviews
Hepatitis C has been called "the emergent and preeminent public-health problem of the twenty-first century-surpassing HIV." It has also been dubbed "The Shadow Epidemic," because it is one of the most clandestine of viruses and infects healthy people who have no idea they are being attacked by something they can't even detect. Now, two experts on hepatitis C have teamed up to write a complete guide to orthodox and alternative treatment options. The book includes programs for self-care, nutritional and fitness plans, and a comprehensive Western and Chinese medical treatment program.
"Hepatitis C is an insidious virus...In the United States, it's believed that only about a quarter of the cases have been diagnosed." --Jerome Groopman, Harvard Medical professor, The New Yorker
"The Hepatitis C Help Book is a collaboration between two of the best known and most knowledgeable practitioners working in the hepatitis field today-Misha Ruth Cohen, O.M.D., L.A.c., and Robert G. Gish, M.D. This a well-rounded and comprehensive guide that should be in the personal library of anyone dealing with hepatitis C, and can easily be used by both patients and health-care providers. Highly recommended." --Alan Franciscus, editor of the HCV Advocate
