Lloyd Wright, author of the just released Hepatitis C: A Do-It Yourself Guide for Health, talking lactoferrin and apolactoferrin for use in reducing AST and ALT viral loads in Hepatitis C patients. A minor fraction of whey, lactoferrin appears to have a wide variety of uses in biological systems and is considered a first line immune defense in the human body. Though a natural component of cow's and human mother's milk, lactoferrin is found throughout the human body.
Published studies that have examined the use of lactoferrin as a supplement and its effects on immunity have been quite promising. First, lactoferrin helps to maintain a proper level of "good" bacteria in the intestinal tract, while controlling the number of "bad" bacteria, like E. coli and streptococcus. Probably lactoferrin's best-known role is as an iron binding protein. The mechanism appears to lie with lactoferrin's ability to bind iron, as it is known to have an extremely high affinity for this metal. Many pathogenic bacteria need a supply of free iron to multiply. In the presence of lactoferrin, they are strongly inhibited or killed.
There is little doubt that lactoferrin is a major find and a potential breakthrough as a natural nontoxic immune enhancer. Though a handful of companies are able to produce lactoferrin at this time, there is only one company producing the apolactoferrin (iron-depleted) form in large quantity. Studies suggest that the superior form to supplement with is apolactoferrin
While characterizing the mechanism by which proanthocyanidin inhibited HCV subgenome expression, we found that heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A2/B1 showed affinity to blueberry leaf-derived proanthocyanidin and was indispensable for HCV subgenome expression in replicon cells. These data suggest that proanthocyanidin isolated from blueberry leaves may have potential usefulness as an anti-HCV compound by inhibiting viral replication.
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.
