What complementary nutrition therapies can you suggest?

Dear Dr Chung,

What complementary nutrition therapies can you suggest to help protect the liver from the medications needed to control hepatitis B and C?

Please comment on herbs, phospholipids, vitamins, etc if possible.


answer from Dr Chung:

I recommend a balanced diet. if you use vitamins, vitamin E supplements have positive antioxidant effects and may help with ribavirin hemolysis in pilot studies, but it has not been specifically proven as a treatment. There are no controlled trials for other herbs or supplements that have demonstrated benefit. RC Ask our Experts All Questions
