INFECTIOUS DISEASE

Viral Illnesses

Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). Although not usually as serious as other types of viral hepatitis, hepatitis A causes inflammation that affects your liver's ability to function. This is significant because the liver performs hundreds of tasks that are essential for health and life.

You're most likely to contract hepatitis A from contaminated food or water or from close contact with someone who's already infected — even if that person doesn't appear sick. Some people who are infected never develop signs and symptoms, but others may feel as if they have a severe flu.

Mild cases of hepatitis A don't require treatment, and most people who are infected recover completely with no permanent liver damage. Unlike hepatitis B and hepatitis C, hepatitis A doesn't develop into chronic hepatitis or cirrhosis — both potentially fatal conditions.

Following good hygiene practices — including washing your hands often — is one of the best ways to protect against hepatitis A. Effective vaccines are available for people who are most at risk.

Definition   

Hepatitis A is an inflammation (irritation and swelling) of the liver caused by the Hepatitis A virus.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors   

Hepatitis A is transmitted by contaminated food or water, or contact with a person who is currently ill with the disease. The Hepatitis A virus is shed in the stools of an infected person during the incubation period of 15 to 45 days before symptoms occur and during the first week of illness. Blood and other bodily secretions may also be infectious.

The virus does not remain in the body after the infection has resolved, and there is no carrier state (i.e., a person who spreads the disease to others but does not become ill).

The symptoms associated with Hepatitis A are similar to the flu, but the skin and eyes may become yellow (jaundiced). This is because the liver is not able to filter bilirubin from the blood.

Risk factors include living in a nursing home or rehabilitation center, having a family member who recently had Hepatitis A, intravenous drug use, and recent travel or immigration from Asia, South, or Central America.

Other common hepatitis virus infections include Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, but hepatitis A is the least serious and most mild of these diseases. Both of the others can become chronic illnesses, but hepatitis A does not.

Hepatitis A Diet

Let's start with most simple part of this program: Hepatitis A diet. When it comes to diet, it is very important to avoid eating  Toxins  and   Foods that Kill. Please follow those links and learn what are The Toxins I am talking about and what are those  " Foods that Kill". Now, important part of your diet should also be  Water Cure.  Please, become familiar with  Water Cure. Your Diet should contain: Foods That Heal, Vegetable juicesFats that HealUnrefined Sea Salt. Also, try to understand food tolerance. You can not find the right Hepatitis A diet, unless you fully understand and learn about food tolerance.

Take some time to implement and learn all what you have read here, and then continue reading further.

HEPATITIS A VIRUS (HAV)

Hepatitis A virus is a RNA virus (enterovirus, picorna group, 25-28 nm particle) which is found primarily in feces and causes a transient viremia. The transmission is fecal/oral (rarely blood borne infection). HAV is common in children and young adults especially in areas of poor sanitary conditions. Epidemics can occur in situations of water contamination. There is a short incubation before the acute onset of symptoms (unless subclinical). This disease has a very good prognosis with a mortality less than 1%. Most patients recover fully in several weeks. THERE IS NO CHRONIC DISEASE OR CARRIER STATE. The serological tests show a rising titer of anti-HAV (IgM or IgG). Approximately 40% of U.S. population and 80% in 3rd world countries have antibodies, most from subclinical infections. Prophylaxis can be achieved by increasing health, and avoiding sugar and other industrially processed foods.
