Wondering if anyone can offer some advice on vitamins for my brain health & vitamins for my liver. Also i only eat chicken & fish. I am confined to a wheel chair but do get out to walk 3 or 4 times daily..Thank you & God Bless You All

Dear Angel195t9

Thank you for joining our forum. We hope you will find it helpful and supportive.

We do have a section on diet with a downloadable publication on our website at: britishlivertrust.org.uk/li...

There is also a section regarding cirrhosis here: britishlivertrust.org.uk/li...

You are entitled to have specialist dietary advice and so we would suggest asking your liver consultant to refer you to a hospital dietitian for specialist advice.

I hope this helps.

Hi Angel, I have had hep c for over 30 years and only found out I had cirrhosis this year only by going to a new Dr.I take milk thistle twice a day but if you do take it only get one with 6 or 7 grams ( I have studied natural therapies and I am a pharmacy tech) as the stronger ones made me so sick as they sent me into detox.You can't have SALT a big No garlic and onion also can effect you.Magnesuim is the absolute best.I actually use it in a cream to stop cramps.I have never been a drinker of alcohol but that's a big no.i find crystallised ginger and real ginger in water is a amazing drink to help flush toxins.The top specialist at the Austin hospital in Melbourne Australia told me to roughly follow the FOOD MAP DIET.All of what I have been doing has helped so much.But that's for me I can't actually tell you to take these.Using your bowels is so so important and I am struggling a bit with this I need to drink more.Have you seen a dietician? It's pretty important.I can feel your spiritual as I am so I hope we keep in contact.bless you and everyone dealing with these diseases.i am going to find out in November if I am hep c negative.but I am on 3 month blood tests and ultrasound for tumours.it scares me as we lost one of our closest friends to liver cancer from hep c 2 weeks ago.But being positive and ask the universe for help.hope I was some help:) god bless Cathy-anne 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Thank you Cathy! Yes i do take milk thistle 2 tabs 1000mgs once a day. Do you take Lactulose for you bowels? It is a wonderful . (like caster oil) that i mix with cranberry juice at night. By the time i wake up i clean myself out. I have just been so very tired. & i had to go to the E.R. the other night because i had so much pain urinating. Well that's when he confirmed the Cirrhosis. he also saw jaundice. (i have know this 4 years ) But through my spiritual thinking and putting it out into the universe i thought i was fine! & i still will continue to keep my Angels around me & my positive thinking. I am so sorry to hear of your friend :( Just think she or he are out of pain and flying with the Angels. I also was blessed with a spiritual gift which i will get into if we need to. You have helped me so much <3 and Blessed to have you as a friend on here. Sometimes i am sure many of us can get a bit lonley feeling like we are fighting this alone. Love & Light and many Blessings Cathy-anne..and God Bless You also. have a blessed day. Thank you again for all your great info :) <3

Hi Angel,

With regards to milk thistle,

The British Liver Trust does not recommend the use of any homeopathic or herbal remedies for those with any liver problems as these have to be processed by the liver and can actually damage the liver and lead to severe illness.

More research needs to be done on the use and safety of such remedies and therapies.

Homeopathic remedies are unregulated in the UK and concentrations of active ingredients vary by brand purchased. If you are considering using complementary or alternative remedies &/or therapies please always discuss this with your liver doctor first.

Please see our link here to Complementary & Alternative Medicines that mentions Milk Thistle;

Best wishes,

BLT Admin

Have you not been offered treatment for the Hep C. I had Hep C, like you, for about 20 years and had the treatment last year which was successful. It is not like the treatment before which was hard to tolerate. I'm 55, I have ended up with cirrhosis but without this treatment I don't think I would have lasted this long. I'm afraid I'm not qualified to advise you on what you should be taking for your brain and liver but there is plenty of good advice on this site.

All the best and good luck, Emma x

No i was never offered any kind of treatment for my Hep C.. Even after my liver failed :( I am finally getting some refer's! But because of living in the U.S.A & the insuranance i have i will have to wait a week. I am a very positive person & i also see a hynotherapist, which helps me so much..(sorry about the typos. I also have to get new glasses )

Thank you & many Blessings to you Emmabskin.
