Hepatitis Herbal Tea
    Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver and usually is caused by some viral infection.  The liver becomes inflamed and enlarged and cannot function properly.  The liver is the main organ in the body that filters poisons, toxins and if it is damaged then the toxins and nutrients are not processed and stored in the right areas.  The symptoms are fever, weakness, an nausea, vomiting, headache, appetite loss, muscle aches, joint pains, dark urine, light colored stools, yellowing of the skin, and elevated liver enzymes in your blood.  You can feel like you have the flu, either mild or severe.  There are many types of Hepatitis, A, B, and C.  All of them are contagious.  Hepatitis C can be contacted by blood transfusions, drug use, sexual contact, You can also get hepatitis through chemical toxins.
