My Favorite Hepatitis C Book
THE HEPATITIS C HANDBOOK by Matthew Dolan
My Hep C "Bible"
My name is Anna, I am author of this Hepatitis C website. I have Hep C. Here is my review of Matthew Dolan's "The Hepatitis C Handbook":
"I first found out I had Hep C almost two years ago.
It was a shock, it was terrifying. It seemed like my doctor didn't
know the answers to the questions that plagued me: am I going to die?
Should I take interferon? Can side-effects of interferon cause permanent
damage to my health and the functioning of my immune system? Can I
expect a "normal" life or will the "quality of life" always be affected?
Can my liver heal, can it "co-exist" with this virus with the help
of diet, life-style changes, exercise, and alternative therapies etc?
The questions were many and everytime I talked to my doctor I felt
as if I were taking up his time, I felt rushed, I felt like he was
annoyed with me from time to time. But I had to get my questions answered.
Then I could face and deal with this disease. But I had to understand
Hepatitis C first!
That's what Matthew Dolan's book did for me. It answered
my Hepatitis C questions in a way that I could understand. It even explained symptoms
that I was having which my doctor seemed to have no concept of. It
gave legitemacy to my symptoms, to my feelings, to my experience.
I knew I was not alone. Brain fog! So that's what it's called! I had
no idea other people were having this too. His book gave me confidence.
I can not say enough about what it did for me emotionally to know
I wasn't going crazy. I had real symptoms, perhaps ones not totally
understood by science yet.
This book taught me what I needed to know about this
disease to feel that I understand enough to face it. Knowledge truly
is empowering and sometimes our best weapon. The book is a rational
look at what Hep C is and it is the most comprehensive I have found.
I also like the truly balanced way in which all available therapies
(conventional and complimentary) are outlined. No bias, no bashing,
no advocating this over that, just presenting all our options. This
is what so many books don't do. That is what I loved the most about
Naomi Judd, R.N., National Spokeswoman for the American
Liver Foundation, and country singer (as most of us know her)sums
up her impression of Dolan's book: "To read this book is to help gain a sense of control and involvement
in defeating hep C. As a proponent of Integrative Medicine, I applaud
the book's inclusion of holistic therapies. This is a comprehensive
and well written book that I highly recommend."
