Hepatitis, hepatitis c

Parts of this were taken with permission from Essential Oils Overview and Reference Guide, published by: The Family Tree, 2008


Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. That inflammation can come from a number of different sources the most common being from ingested toxins such as alcohol and the excess, or even the normal, use of certain medications. Other sources are viral, bacterial and fungal infections as well as others that include autoimmune hepatitis.

The present use of the word hepatitis normally refers to infectious hepatitis and the most common infectious hepatitis is a viral infection. There are at least seven types of viral infections of the liver. The most common of these are the viral infections known as Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. And finally the most common viral infection of the liver with a chronic affect is Hepatitis C that is estimated to be a chronic condition in 4.4 million Americans.

The symptoms of any of the hepatitis conditions seem to be similar so blood tests are necessary to specifically identify the source. Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, weight loss, jaundice appearance and/or itchy skin. Hepatitis A is the most common of the infections but is a mild infection that may come and go without even being detected as the body’s immune system protects itself and it has no lasting or chronic effect. Hepatitis B and C are more invasive and both can develop into chronic hepatitis and affect a person for a lifetime. As mentioned Hepatitis C is the most common chronic condition affecting 3 or 4 times as many people as Hepatitis B.

These are all blood disorders and are not passed to others through casual contact such as hugging, sneezing, coughing or sharing eating facilities. It can be passed through practices that have blood to blood contact including drug culture activities, body piercing with non-sterilized instruments and other activities more common to underdeveloped nations.

Experiences and Testimonials of others

Amy - Years ago (1994) my mother was diagnosed with hepatitis C and has been tested every 3-6 months to monitor her liver enzyme levels.  Since then, they’ve always been higher than the normal range because of this and she was prescribed a medication “interferon” (shots in the stomach) to reduce those numbers to a healthy level.  This medication causes the user to feel like they have flu-like symptoms all the time (similar to chemo side-effects), not to mention the discomfort of needles into your abdomen for the duration of taking the medication. She tried it, had some lowering of the levels but felt miserable, so discontinued the treatment.   For the past few months my mother has been putting (...) Frankincense in her drinking water every day. This past Friday, she got her blood work checked and for the first time in years her levels were normal!

Helen (Amy’s mother) - “I have been using (...) for several months in many different ways.  Diffusion, in my water or juice, or wherever I sometimes feel pain. Recently I started putting a few drops of frankincense in my water to drink because of all the benefits I have read about it--especially pertaining to the liver. I have hepatitis-C and for years when I get a blood test my liver enzymes are always high. On April 20th, 2011, I had my fasting blood test and was informed 2 days later that my liver enzymes are normal. This is the first time I have heard this and the only thing I can think of that I am doing different is the daily ingestion of the Frankincense. Hallelujah, if this keeps up.


Meg - I have a friend who has hepatitis C and needs to get treatment.  He has done the peginterferon alfa-2a treatment in the past and will have to do it again but it makes him VERY sick.  It lasts a year and is equivalent to a year of chemotherapy.  Is there anything we could try for him before he has to do that again?  I have read a little about clove oil and the virus but I am hoping for a protocol we can follow for a month so that he can check his blood levels and we can see if we made any progress.  I'm praying that we can find him something..

Pat - Try the Detoxifying Blend support, the Detoxifying Blend oil topically on the liver area, and Melissa and Protective Blend, two drops to the roof of the mouth twice a day.


Jenn - I want to help someone who has Hepatitis B. She is taking medication that is similar to chemo pills, which lowers her immune system and makes her very sick at times. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions with using the oils for this ailment?

Pat - This is a recommended protocol for Hepatitis B: Detoxifying Blend capsule for organ support and filter cleaning Detoxifying Blend oil blend rubbed topically on the liver area. Terrazyme with food 3x a day Melissa and Protective Blend, drop on thumb and hold to roof of mouth, do twice a day. Use Grounding Blend daily on back of ears or back of neck.


 HL - I am wondering if anyone has used Metabolic Blend in order to detoxify the liver and help support it for Hepatitis C. Grapefruit is recommended, but my thought is that the citrus mix will cleanse and help tone and the peppermint would sooth.

Pat - The Slim and Sasy would be great and you are correct, however the Detoxifying Blend would also be a great topical oil for the liver area.


Heather - What exactly will the oils do for hepatitis C? Just relieve pain?

Sharon - It would cleanse the liver safely.  A clean liver would lead to a lower viral load and less damage to the liver itself.  The liver is the seat of our emotions so I would expect to see a better mood as well.  And yes, the Detoxifying Blend oil should help with pain relief , it has for two people I know personally.

Pat – (more on the hepatitis protocol) You want to clear the liver (Detoxifying Blend Cleanse) but also the Melissa kills the virus and that is one of the main problems. While doing the cleanse you have to drink a lot of water with lemon essential oil in it. The lemon in the water helps to flush toxins. There is also the Detoxifying Blend Oil Blend that can be rubbed topically on the liver area. The LLV is a perfect way to balance the body and help it to heal itself. The person with the hepatitis needs to keep his diet clean from carbohydrates and dairy while cleansing.


Peggy - Does anyone have a personal testimonial about Hepatitis C being treated successfully with (...) essential oils?

Rob - first, I would be on the Basic Vitality Supplements (LLV) supplements. There is not a product out there that will be much better at bringing balance to the body.

Secondly, consider a twice per day capsule of: 4 drops helichrysum, 4 drops geranium, 4 drops frankincense 8  drops melted EVCO This is a blend that is reportedly very cleansing and detoxifying for the liver.

[Editorial note: Not long fter this protocol was suggested (...) up...d the Basic Vitality Supplements (LLV) supplements to the Basic Vitality Supplements (LLV) and introduced two products to cleanse and strengthen the liver. These are the Detoxifying Blend Detoxification Complex tablets and the Detoxifying Blend.]

Finally Massage Blend technique 1-2 times weekly that include the use of 2-3 drops each of Grounding Blend, Clove and Thyme to be used during the inflammation and pain reduction stage (after Soothing Blend), applied using the palm slide and thumb walk.

Using this protocol, have the viral load checked after 5-6 weeks, and it's likely you will see a significant reduction in viral load.  If the protocol is effective, continue until eliminating the virus completely.
