In some cases a patient with a high viral load and a diagnosis of hepatitis C will exhibit no symptoms. In other cases a person with a high viral load has very serious symptoms. This is why in Chinese medicine we don’t focus so much on the number or viral load, but focus more on a patient’s quality of life.
Someone with Hepatits C can live a long and happy life free of symptoms. Humans have coevolved with viruses for thousands of years, it is when they are able to replicate in an uncontrolled way in the body that they become problematic and wreak havoc on the immune system. Acupuncture focuses on helping the immune system combat the hepatitis virus.
The Chinese have used acupuncture and herbal medicine successfully for thousands of years to treat viruses including the virus we know now as hepatitis C. We don’t speaking of curing a person so that they do not have the virus anymore, but rather focus on alleviating systems and the body’s ability to deal with the disease.
