“Hepatitis” means inflammation of the liver. The liver is a vital organ that filters the blood, processes various nutrients, as well as fights infections. The function can be affected if it is damaged or inflamed. Heavy alcohol use, toxins, some medications, and certain medical conditions, like Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) & Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NFLD), can cause hepatitis. However, hepatitis can also be caused by a virus.

Autoimmune hepatitis is inflammation of the liver that occurs when the immune system attacks the liver cells. It is unclear what the exact cause is, but environmental and genetic factors appear to interact over time and can trigger the disease.

COEM has a treatment protocol for hepatitis that includes specialized laboratory testing kits and blood work, nutritional supplementation (for gastrointestinal support, anti-oxidants, liver treatment and support), LDN, immune therapies using signal therapy, provocation-neutralization therapy, and most importantly High Dose Alpha Lipoic Acid IV therapy using the Berkson Protocol.

Diet and stress management also play a part and are discussed.
