Further, they believe it may even be altogether unnecessary if more attention was given to alternative means of boosting the available organ supply. Therefore, motivation to find alternative solutions, even if they would prove ultimately much safer to patients, is very small for several individuals. Of these, a few go on to state that that organ shortages could have be fixed long ago, and in much safer and cost effective ways. This hardly proves that xenotransplants will decrease the demand for organs, when the only successful operation require twice the normal organ amount. Her reasoning, that “surgeons have made great strides in perfecting transplant techniques” and that they will therefore soon be able to master xenotransplants is questionable at best. Some approve of the practice of animal organ transplantation and see it as a great way to reduce the lengthy waiting process often required by transplant patients. She describes the very first animal organ transplant to a human, conducted by French surgeon Mathieu Jaboulay in 1906. He provided one woman with a pig’s kidney and another with a goat’s liver. Especially because, as previously mentioned, in the successful operation where the patient received a pig’s liver and survived, surgeons ended up providing that same patient with a human organ later on.

Symptoms may also be mild and come and go over the lifetime of the patient. It is most important to understand that there was a reason why they contracted the disease, it taught them valuable lessons, but now it’s time to come to a resolution and move onto a healthier way of being. What I’ve noticed over the years is that I get a run of cases with the same disease in a short period of time. Last month I saw lots of clients with Multiple Sclerosis (or the misdiagnosis of same.) We learned about the low-fat Swank diet and all the drugs used to treat this particular disease process. This month I had a run of Hepatitis C clients. Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver (Hepato is the root word for liver and anything ending in “itis” means inflammation.) Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is one of the many viruses that can cause inflammation of the liver.

At least 75% of people infected with hepatitis C develop chronic hepatitis C which can be progressive and fatal. Symptoms and Signs of Hepatitis: Eighty percent of people infected with Hepatitis C do not have symptoms. However, my clients have had very good luck with alternative medicine treatments for hepatitis C, but they work at it and stick with a good program. I agree with you that xenotransplantation has failed and will most likely continue to fail without severe consequences (and even if it were successful we would have to worry about inter-species disease transmission at the very least). They each had contracted the disease differently, but none-the-less, their lives have been permanently shifted from this terrible disease which is seemingly not curable. This disease never completely goes away. When the liver is sick, we see diseases like high cholesterol, high triglycerides, hemorrhoids, cancer, allergies, varicose veins and lots of anger and resentments. On the other hand, others see the wait for xenotransplantation to be perfected, let alone approved, as needlessly lengthy as well. Some believe that Williams was wrong about xenotransplantation having the potential to be beneficial when she wrote her article in 1996, and some believe that she remains incorrect today.

Even now, seventeen years later, xenotransplantation remains an unpracticed procedure far from providing any significant supply of organs. Contact Author Xenotransplantation, the practice of transplanting animal organs and tissues into human patients, has a rather uninspiring history. One survived long enough to later receive a human organ. Childbirth, sexual intercourse and accidental needle sticks (most common in nurses and the human medical field) are also less common causes of transmission. Other causes are irritation to the liver from alcohol, bacterial infections, drugs, and cancer. Anger and resentments are stored in the liver. 7. Herbs to support the liver as needed including but not limited to: Milk Thistle (Also Called Silymarin), Burdock Root, Safflower, Licorice, Green Tea, Dandelion, Artichoke, Cordyceps Mushroom, Turmeric, and Peppers. 2. Barfy Green Stuff (or some other green food–it really doesn’t matter too much what you choose. The only animal organ success story that is brought up by Williams took place when two individuals received transplants of pig livers. This is still only a fifty percent success rate, and it was only a partial success at best, as it was a very temporary procedure. 12.
