Healing Hepatitis C is a refreshing change of pace from most other HCV books. Written by Diana Sylvestre, MD and Christopher Kennedy Lawford - the format is a dialog between the two while they simultaneously speak directly to the reader. Sylvestre provides a physician's perspective and Lawford offers good humored insight from the patient's side. This book is warm, honest, and refreshing.

This book illustrates some of the turmoil that we experience over this disease, particularly regarding treatment. The strength of this book is that it is honest. Healing Hepatitis C is not highly technical yet it succeeds in getting across a lot of information without boring the reader. The Online Resource section provides tools for the reader wanting to know more about various aspects of HCV.

If you are touched by hepatitis C and you need a hearty dose of help, hope and inspiration, read Healing Hepatitis C.

What a smart idea, first you get a former drug addict to tell us how he got Hepatitis C and what he did about it, and then you get an informed doctor to break it down for us.
What I once thought about Hepatitis C was that Hepatitis C is a death sentence. Now, Hepatitis C does not seem to be such a dark cloud, dead end.
Too many times in our past medical issues have been swept under the rug because of moral issues, "they did it to themselves", "they are weak people," same with HIV. People think that God placed a curse on them for being wicked. What happened to, "Judge not,"? It's my opinion that Dr. Sylvestre writes this book in the mindset of, "Let's get on with the job of beating back this virus, no matter how someone got Hepatitis C."
Thank God she saw a need and stepped up. If you ever get the chance to talk to the thousands of people Dr. Sylvestre has helped, one thing you will always hear is, "She didn't judge me, she helped me."
My family has four people with Hepatitis C. My mom got hers from a blood transfusion, my sister did not know how she caught hers (but she was a nurse). I and my brother got Hepatitis C from being IV drug users. Dr. Sylvestre treated us all as people.
My hope is that people read this book and become enlightened. I hope the doctors get off there high horses and help the people with Hepatitis C. I hope everyone who reads this becomes a strong advocate for themselves or anyone who has Hepatitis C.

Format: Paperback
I found this book captivating. Once I started it I could not put it down. I got so much information that stuck in my head because of the way it was written so true to life. Doctor Sylvestri and Christopher Lawford made me feel like I was right there with them. While I have read other books on Hep C like Melissa Palmers' 'Hepatitis & Liver Disease', I related to this book and retained so much more of the information, it left me wanting more. My only regret was I wish it was much longer. Please write another.

This book is a page turner. Excellent read for anyone who is Hepatitis C virus positive still, or involved with people who have Hep C. There is a medical cure for a majority of people with this infection. This book provides much needed information about the disease and it's treatment. It is certainly an encouragement to people wondering if they too can beat Hep C.
