In the News: Hepatitis A

February 22, 2019

Hepatitis A outbreaks have been happening regularly, and they’re affecting a lot more people these days than just the small handfuls of years past. Right now, Columbus, Ohio has its largest outbreak since 1999—with ten times as many cases (over 1600). Hepatitis A is a preventable disease mostly spread by poor hygiene, in other words, most recent outbreaks have involved infected restaurant workers and not enough hand-washing. You never know where an outbreak of Hep A, Salmonella, or E. coli could happen so always support your immune system with colloidal silver.

Symptoms of Hepatitis A include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue, and as Hep A is a liver disease, jaundice (when you start to turn yellow). It can take up to a month for symptoms to appear. The most common form of Hepatitis A transmission is the fecal-oral route, when poor (or no) handwashing leaves small poop particles that can transferred to others, usually through food.

Once infected, there’s no medical treatment or cure for Hepatitis A—the body has to cure it on its own. If you’ve been exposed to Hepatitis A (like you ate somewhere that makes it into the news, or share a home with someone infected) or if you get diagnosed, double down on self-care, making time to sleep as much as you need, eating healthy foods and avoiding things that are hard on the liver, like alcohol and Tylenol. Keep up healthy, immune system supporting habits like exercise and taking colloidal silver.

Hepatitis A isn’t limited to restaurants, sometimes pre-packaged or frozen food at the grocery store is contaminated. Knowing the symptoms, watching the news, and keeping up immune support are some of the best things you can do for yourself.
