Here are my thoughts and feelings about the Complete Thymic Formula.
When diagnosed with Hep C in 1997, I was devastated, and knew that I was more tired than I should be at age 56. A co-worker told me about Thymic Formula. Her husband had been taking it for a couple of years, and was feeling better, with increased energy and stamina. He also has Hep C.
In 1999, upon hearing about Thymic Formula from Carmen, I decided to order a bottle. I took them to my doctor, and he read all the information about the supplement and felt that it was very healthy.
Thus, 10 years later, I am still on Thymic Formula (went through the interferon/riboviran treatment successfully) and I have been clear of the Hep C for 7 years. I started taking the Thymic Formula about 8 months before going on treatment, and I feel that it truly boosted my immune system and keep me feeling positive. One of the difficulties of Hep C, in addition to the feeling of being tired all the time, is the depression that can accompany this virus.
I was so fortunate that my 6 month regime of interferon/riboviran (old style, 3 shots a week, 5 pills a day) was so much more gentle than I expected. I attribute that to these important factors: exercise (and down to walking each day when I became more tired during the treatment), drinking half my weight in ounces of water each day, having a positive belief that I would do my best to clear this virus, my personal faith and beliefs, and the good eating habits I developed. And, very important… the Thymic Formula…
I believe that it truly has boosted my immune system tremendously and that my mental outlook has always remained positive, even when I was tired and feeling weak. I only missed 4 days of work during this treatment regime, and I believe the combination of the above truly helped me go through this challenging period in my life in a "gentle" manner. Yes, I had side affects, but they were also gentle.
I do know that some people will still have very serious side affects, even when practicing all I have done… I do not profess that all I did during treatment will guarantee "gentle" side affects for all… but, it should make them less severe.
The good news is, since I completed treatment, the number of people who are clearing Hep C with the new pegalated interferon (and other similar interferon treatments) are on the rise… approximately 50%-80% now clear Hep C with treatment, depending on one’s Genotype. For more information on Genotype for Hep C, go to the Hep C website (there are several).
Thank you for your time in reading my long testimony, but I truly do believe that taking Complete Thymic Formula was one of the very important factors in my tolerating the treatment so well, and preparing my immune system and body for the treatment… thus for me, clearing the virus.
