Hepatitis A B C
What is Hepatitis A?
Hepatitis A, (formerly known as infectious hepatitis), is an acute infectious disease of the liver caused by the Hepatitis A virus, which is most commonly transmitted by the fecal-oral route via contaminated food or drinking water.
Every year, approximately 10 million people worldwide are infected with the virus. The time between infection and the appearance of the symptoms, (the incubation period), is between two and six weeks and the average incubation period is 28 days.
Symptoms of Hepatitis A can often mimic that of the flu. Such symptoms may include but are not limited to:
- Appetite Loss
- Weight loss
- Abdominal Pain
At Arizona Integrative Medical Center PC, Dr. Stallone uses a number of modalities to treat Hepatitis A. Since it is an acute (short duration but severe symptoms)
These may include but are not limited to:
What is Hepatitis B?
Symptoms of Hepatitis B may be acute or chronic. Symptoms of the acute illness caused by the virus include but are not limited to:
- Liver inflammation
While the virus may be prevented by vaccination, 3-6% of the world’s population is still infected. There are many treatment options that may benefit an individual infected with the Hepatitis B virus and alleviate the acute symptoms and/or eliminate the health possibilities that may occur if the symptoms become chronic
At Arizona Integrative Medical Center, PC Dr. Stallone employs a number of different treatment modalities that are tailored specifically to the individual and compliment conventional treatments. These may include but are not limited to:
- Ozone/Oxygen Therapies
- Photoluminescence/Blood Irradiation Therapy
- Intravenous DMSO (Dimethylsulfoxide)
- Nutrient IV Therapy
- Botanical Medicine
What is Hepatitis C?
Hepatitis C is a blood-borne infectious disease that is caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infecting the liver. Liver inflammation (hepatitis) can result from the infection. Often an individual will have no symptoms, however, if the inflammation becomes chronic, it can later result in fibrosis and cirrhosis (fibrotic scarring of the liver) and could develop into liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma, HCC).
The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is spread by blood-to-blood contact with an infected person's blood. No vaccine against hepatitis C is currently available; however, there are treatment options that may assist the body’s own immune system in enabling a person to live a healthy, normal life.
How may HCV be treated?
An integrative approach really seems to work best with HCV. Patients who are on common medicines such as Pegasys, Riboverin, and Interferon can experience flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, muscle ache, and fatigue. Other symptoms are fatigue or extreme tiredness. Nausea and loss of appetite are also common. Complimentary IV therapies can drastically reduce or even eliminate side effects such as these and give the patient a much higher quality of life.
In HCV, viral load is simply one of the factors affecting the invasiveness and severity of the disease process. Another factor is the overall health status/stage of the liver as well as the patient’s overall current health status.
Through the use of blood work, CT scans, ultrasounds, liver biopsy, and overall physical assessment of the patient, a treatment plan that best suits the individual may be formed. Research has shown that reduction of the viral load in Hepatitis C by means of ozone/oxygen therapy can significantly normalize liver enzymes and improve the patient’s overall health.
At Arizona Integrative Medical Center, PC Dr. Stallone treats Hepatitis C by formulating a variety of treatment modalities such as Ozone/Oxygen therapies, Nutrient IV therapy, DMSO, and Neutraceutical Supplements either as a stand-alone treatment, or as an adjunct to standard treatment regimens. All treatments are tailored to the individual in order to maximize their effectiveness.
We understand that your decision to optimize your health is important and vital to you. We take the
time to listen; we treat the whole person and treat each person's illness individually; we feel
this is the optimal way to provide health care. Modern Medicine has had difficulties with curative
approaches to microbial and antigenic infections in human health. There is increasing numbers
of Hepatitis A B and C, Herpes, HIV, HPV, Lyme Disease, Fungus, West Nile virus, antibiotic resistant bacteria, MRSA, SARS, Parasites and virulent strains of cold / flu viruses affecting millions of people world wide.
Paul Stallone, NMD uses a natural integrative approach that is complimentary to the medications and treatments that are most commonly used with infectious disease. This approach allows the body to build the proper immune markers to heal and develop agents that help fight viruses naturally by stimulating the body's immune response system. Arizona Integrative Medical Center, P.C. addresses
these conditions with a vast variety of advanced modalities including Oxygen / Ozone / Oxidative Medicine, Detox Ozone-Sauna Therapy, Intravenous Nutritional Therapy, DMSO Therapy, Immunomodulating Therapies, Clinical Nutrition / Supplements, Botanical / Herbal Medicine, Prescription Medications, Homeopathic Medicines, Elevated Dose Vitamin C Therapies, Transfer Factors / Colostrum, Silver, Amino Acid Therapy and many more antiviral / antimicrobial therapies.
Each patient is unique and therefore, any effective treatment must be completely customized to each individual. This requires a patient profile and medical history so a thorough analysis of each patient's makeup and needs can be met. Once understood, a customized treatment plan is designed to meet individual requirements for maximum effectiveness.
