The HepTech Protocol is a lifetime maintenance system for Hepatitis C. It is not a cure for Hep C. The Harvoni treatment is a cure, but it is expensive and there are some who report side effects. Be very sure that you are willing to risk the potential side effects. Who may have side effects, and the severity of the side effects are not predictable. Some patients opt to continue using the HepTech Protocol instead of undergoing the Harvoni treatment.
The cost of the HepTech Protocol is $275/mo. $125/mo for Heptoboost, $90/mo for HeptoShield, and $60/mo for Fibroguard.
The Fibroscan is less invasive than a Liver Biopsy, and may be more accurate than a Fibrosure test.
Whenever a tissue is inflamed, it will be at a higher risk for cancer, due to the potential damage to the geneome from the Free Radicals (ROS) put out by the immune cells. This is the advantage of curing Hep C with Harvoni. The HepTech protocol reduces the amount of inflammation in the liver, but all inflammation and damage from a Hep C infection is not eliminated. The amount of cell damage is reduced sufficiently that the liver is able to reabsorb much of the fibrin deposition and regenerate functional liver cells.
Is there value only in taking the Entire Protocol?
There is probably an advantage to doing any amount or part of the Hep Tech Protocol. But, the protocol was formulated and only tested at full dose. So, the amount of benefit (or lack thereof), is purely speculative. Taking a Spectracell micronutrient Assay ($340) will give you an idea of what nutrients are insufficient. It is best to take the HeptoBoost (antioxidant formula) for several months (3-6) and then do the test. If there are still any nutrients that are deficient, it will probably only be a few, and those can be specifically chosen. If you have a serious medical condition (any kind of Hepatitis, then, taking the full protocol at full dose is the only dosing we can recommend).
