This story BLEW. MY. MIND. I cannot wait for you to read it!
For those of you who don’t know, the liver is INCREDIBLY important for us to be alive. It effects every other organ in the body and without a properly functioning liver, we can have horrific symptoms and very quickly deteriorate. This man’s story is absolutely amazing! If you know anyone with any kind of liver issues or Hepatitis C, PLEASE pass it on!
My Husband’s Experience with Hepatitis C
Last summer my husband became jaundiced and we did not know why. The doctors performed a liver biopsy which revealed that my husband did indeed have Hepatitis C. We were shocked because nothing in his lifestyle could account for this. We were told that Hepatitis C could, in time, turn into liver cancer. The doctors also told us that the only treatment was a drug called Interferon and that my husband would have to take injections three times a week for six months. We were informed that this treatment has a cure rate of ten percent. With no other options, my husband began the treatments. The side effects of Interferon included fevers, shakes and severe flue-like symptoms. Needless to say, it was horrible for my husband. He missed a lot of work and was unable to work the necessary overtime to keep up with our bills. He was too sick to go to our son’s baseball games and participate in other family activities.
When my husband’s worries increased towards the end of the six month treatment period, I decided to call my friend Jane for help. I knew that Jane had suffered for many years with symptoms associated with chronic Lyme disease. I also knew that she was finally better than she had been in years. When I had first heard about Jane’s improved condition, I just filed it away in my brain and was thankful that Jane was well again. The Sunrider Philosophy of Regeneration made sense to me as we decided to try the samples Jane gave us. Soon after, I ordered some more of the Sunrider foods. My husband was still on the Interferon when he began eating these foods. The first thing he noticed as that he had more energy and that he just felt better. This was after only one week on Sunrider.
It turns out that it was a good thing we had found Sunrider because two weeks latter the doctors told my husband that the Interferon was not working and that he should no longer take it. The next thing they told us was that my husband needed to be put on the liver transplant list. Needless to say, my husband and I were stunned and very upset.
Because my husband began to feel so much better on Sunrider, I began to do some research. I read like crazy and researched the Sunrider company. My husband and I decided that we would get him on the liver transplant list while at the same time we would give the Sunrider foods a four month trial period. So, we made an appointment at the liver transplant center in Philadelphia and ordered some more Sunrider.
About one month later my husband went to have more blood drawn and a few days later the doctors called us in to discuss the results. The doctor showed us a paper with three columns on it. The first column showed the levels a normal healthy person has in his blood. The second column showed my husband’s levels three months ago, and the third column showed his current levels. The current blood levels all showed drastic improvements over the previous levels, something which had not happened while he had been on Interferon. It was easy to see that the doctor was impressed and stunned.
Happy and thankful are weak words for how we felt!
It had only been a month since my husband had begun eating Sunrider. Even before we received the blood test results, our family and friends noticed several positive changes in my husband’s appearance. The black circles under his eyes were going, his skin color and hair were better and his eyes sparkled. We could all see the high level of energy he now had. My husband stated that he wanted to continue eating these foods because feeding his body right made him feel better.
My husband still needed to be evaluated at the transplant center so we set up an appointment in Philadelphia at one of the country’s foremost transplant centers.
Two weeks before the appointment the doctor took more blood tests and this time the results were NORMAL! I felt like doing flips down the New Jersey Turnpike!
On the day of the evaluation appointment, we filled out forms and had some interviews. The first doctor we saw asked a lot of questions and we told her all about the food herbs my husband was eating. Next, the doctor looked at my husband’s chart and examined him. She didn’t say much as she left the room except, “It seems that you’re doing better on Sunrider than on Interferon.” (I already knew this!) Next, the head of the transplant team came in and also looked at my husband’s chart. We also told him about the foods that my husband was eating. After the exam he said that my husband was “too healthy for a transplant,” but just to be sure, he would have to have a meeting with the whole team to compare results.
I was not surprised that my husband was too healthy for a liver transplant. I had seen him deteriorate while on the Interferon but had seen him come back to good health while eating Sunrider. After the transplant team met, we got a call telling us that my husband was indeed too healthy for a transplant, but at the same time they wanted to do an additional blood test to see how much Hepatitis C was in my husband’s blood.
This latest blood test indicated there was no Hepatitis C in my husband’s blood – it was gone – zero – nothing there! We were shocked!
I guess you are all wondering how my husband is doing now, four months after beginning Sunrider. He still goes for blood tests and still eats the foods and thankfully, is doing well. We just found out that his liver is no longer inflamed. He looks and feels one hundred percent better and his test results remain good. He is working full time and even doing overtime. Our lives have greatly improved and my husband can now play ball with our son. We are so thankful for Sunrider foods!
