Lloyd Wright, author of the just released Hepatitis C: A Do-It Yourself Guide for Health, talking Oxymatrine, a powerful herb extract from China that he sells at Alternative Medicine Solution. Matrine and oxymatrine are the two major alkaloid components found in sophora roots. They are obtained primarily from Sophora japonica (kushen), but also from Sophora subprostrata (shandougen), and from the above ground portion of Sophora alopecuroides. The matrines were first isolated and identified in 1958; they are unique tetracyclo-quinolizindine alkaloids (see Figure 1) found only in Sophora species thus far. An intensive investigation into the pharmacology and clinical applications of these alkaloids has gone on for the past decade and remains one of the focal points of Chinese medical research. The main clinical applications are treatment of people with cancer, viral hepatitis, cardiac diseases (such as viral myocarditis), and skin diseases (such as psoriasis and eczema).
The crude herb and crude hot-water extracts of sophora have been available in the West for more than 25 years. An alkaloid fraction of sophora roots containing a standardized level of oxymatrine and matrine (20%) was first introduced by the Institute for Traditional Medicine, and made available to practitioners in tablet form under the name Oxymatrine (White Tiger) in 1998. It has been used without reported side effects. In China, the alkaloids are often given by injection, but this method of administration is not acceptable in the West, so oral dosing is used here instead. When taken orally, much of the oxymatrine is converted to matrine; to get high blood levels of oxymatrine, it must be given by injection. However, it is unclear whether oxymatrine is clinically more effective than matrine. Chinese researchers have also used the alkaloids in capsule form, with results that appear similar to the injection. Sophora is also administered in complex formulas made as decoctions and taken orally.
About Lloyd Wright:
Lloyd Wright attended UCLA for undergraduate work and continued his formal education at Cal Lutheran University majoring in Administration of Justice.
Lloyd's background in Natural Medicine began early in life, as his mother was "the Health Food Fanatic" of the 1950's. Lloyd's longstanding interest in Natural Medicine was further fueled as nearly everyone in his family has had cancer and most have died from it.
Lloyd contracted Hepatitis C in 1979 from four blood transfusions and a liver biopsy in 1994 revealed Chronic Hepatitis C. After a bout with cancer and the conventional treatments Lloyd went through for his cancer therapy, Lloyd's liver was in bad shape. The medical establishment advised Lloyd to get his papers in order and expect to live another 3 to 5 years, and hope something would come along to help.
Standing up against a legion of medical doctors who insisted Interferon was the only way, he researched the disease and proved them wrong. Through extensive research, and his studies with the highly regarded Dr. John Finnegan, ND, Lloyd created a combination of herbal and glandular remedies that cured him completely of Hepatitis C.
His successful cure coupled with the trauma he experienced while in the hands of medical doctors spurred him to write a book documenting his story and his cure, Triumph Over Hepatitis C. This book has received worldwide recognition and is helping thousands of people to heal themselves. As a Hepatitis C researcher and author, Lloyd has developed more substantial credentials than most doctors or scientists who are often paid by big drug companies.
Through this book, a best seller on the web, and his popular website, http://www.hepatitiscfree.com
, Lloyd has reached thousands of people all over the world. This website has one of the most successful Alternative Medicine pharmacies on the internet which provides life-saving, superior quality products to both doctors and patients for Hepatitis C, Cancer, Autoimmune diseases, etc. Those who have tried his program have reported great improvement, while some have reported no longer having a viral load at all.
