Hep C Free? Does Lloyd Wright Have The HCV "Cure"?
WHO IS LLOYD WRIGHT?
Most of us know Lloyd Wright as the "guy who was cured
from Hep C" and the author of Triumph Over Hepatitis C the
book that describes the alternative medicine approach he used to heal
himself and achieve being "hep C free". He also heads a non-profit
organization and website which provides alternative medicine products,
the main one being NatCell Frozen Thymus.
His website HepatitisCFree.com
rates very high on the search engines, in fact Lloyd's site was probably
one of the very first I came across when I began my research on Hep
C. But who is Lloyd Wright and what is his philosophy on a cure for
hepatitis C? To find out the answer to this question, I went straight
to the source. I interviewed him, and he was very generous with his
time both on the phone and in correspondence by email.
INTERVIEW WITH LLOYD WRIGHT: WHAT IS THE CURE FOR
1. ANNA: Tell us about yourself and your experience
with Hep C?
LLOYD: During the late summer of 1979 I fell
through the gates of hell while operating my newly purchased John
Deere tractor. Backwards it thundered, flipping over and launching
me behind it as it went thrashing through the bushes, careening down
a thousand foot cliff. I was crushed as the sixteen thousand pound
piece of American junk rolled over me on a very steep, remote site
in the Santa Monica mountains. I woke up in the Los Robles hospital.
The surgeon on duty informed me that my leg had been broken in six
different places and that I had suffered a major crush injury. Over
the next thirty days I underwent nine surgeries to reattach my leg.
I received four blood transfusions and, unknown at the time, a lethal
dose of Hepatitis C. Triumph Over Hepatitis C is composed of
two parts. Part 1: The savage journey through the midst of the American
Medical Machine. The scarifying saga of Lloyd Wright as he struggled
with the menace, Hep C. Part 2: The Alternative Medicine Solution
that saved my life (and now countless others). Triumph
Over Hepatitis C offers hope where there seems to be little
2. ANNA: Are you "anti-medical establishment"? Are
you anti-interferon? If there was one thing about interferon you think
people with Hep C should know about what would it be?
LLOYD: No, I am not an anti-medical establishment.
I do, however, believe that doctors should stick with what they know
best i.e. body mechanics and body repair. They need to broaden their
education into natural medicine and attempt to relinquish their egotistical
attitudes, learn to listen to their patients and above all else, understand
that there are, indeed, effective alternatives to Interferon. 95%
of all the doctors my clients tell me about are 100% against herbs
or anything they cannot write a prescription for.I am anti Interferon.
I have now spoken with four people (out of more than 26,000) who have
expressed only slight discomfort from interferon and have spoken with
only two who have been non-detected from itís use. I sincerely believe
that the day will come when the prescribing of interferon for hepatitis
will make the tobacco industry scandal pale in comparison. Interferon
is a billion dollar a year business in the US and a billion dollars
goes a long way to promote itself. The best evidence I have seen on
the actual success of interferon is a University study that concludes
that; taken the best possible candidates (all other than perfect people
removed) only 6.7% had a sustained remission for 6 months.
3. ANNA: What is the single most important thing
you did to "triumph" over Hep C?
LLOYD: I was persistent.
4. ANNA: What is your definition of a "cure", in
respects to Hep C. For instance, finish the sentence, "Someone is
LLOYD: Someone is cured when they test non-detected
for the Hepatitis C virus for the rest of their life. The Hep C virus
is very small, less than 1/3 the size of the AIDS virus. It mutates
with each replication as a means for self-protection. The current
HCV RNA Quantitative and Qualitative tests are simply not accurate
enough or refined to detect active virus in minute amounts.
5. ANNA: Is there a cure for Hep C?
LLOYD: Yes, it is found in Triumph
Over Hepatitis C. The program I outline works better at eradicating
the virus than anything currently offered by the FDA.
6. ANNA: What constitutes successful treatment? Multiple Choice:
choose the one you think is most important:
[a] elimination of HCV from all body fluids and tisue
[b] suppression of the virus so it remains undectable,
inhibition of viral replication, preventing associated damage
[c] reversal of HCV related injury, improved or normal
liver function and reasonable expectation of an average life span
7. ANNA: Tell us about one of your "success stories"
of a patient who has recovered using your program. How did it help
them? Has anyone using your program tested negative for the virus
LLOYD: On Sept 14 2000 I received a phone call
from a client. He had purchased a copy ofTriumph
Over Hepatitis C
last January. This man has known his doctor since he (his doctor)
was a child. Five years ago his doctor told him that he had cirrhosis
and Hepatitis C, that he had five years at best...
He shared my book with his doctor, and his doctor told
him that the suggested remedy would do nothing for his condition.
He began my program in February When he called me last September he
was quite happy and had a very deep sense of emotional appreciation.
He told me that his ALT and AST were normal for the first time since
he had been having his blood tested. His doctor wrote him a letter,
which he read to me over the phone. The doctor eloquently stated that
having been educated in the way that he was, when he found out about
his friendís condition, he knew what the outcome would be. To have
it turn around in eight months was something unbelievable to the Dr.
Because of the doctor's unique relationship with my
client, he was actually able to see and document what was going on
and be able to believe it. I say believe because so many doctors across
the country tell people who use my program that they are having a
"spontaneous remission." My clients doctor told him, "I think Iím
going to re-educate myself because I donít think this was a spontaneous
remission." The doctor recommended another biopsy to examine the cirrhosis
but the patient refused. We do know that the liver panel is normal
for the first time and that he feels better than he has for at least
10 years. Several people have tested negative (one after as little
as 2 months) and one who started in August of 2000 tested non-detected
in March 2000. Several have lowered viral loads from many million
down to very near the non-detected level in as little as 6 months.
Considering my book has only been out for 18 months,
I have a staggering 97% success rate. It took me 18 months to test
HCV non-detected. Many of my clients follow their blood work more
closely than I did because they have insurance. Surprisingly enough
a very high percentage of people will have nothing to do with sharing
their personal information. There are a few shouting from the mountaintops,
however, that are helping me to spread the good news. I have only
had 3 non-respondents after 6 months on my program.
8. ANNA: A lot of people say "How do you know Lloyd
Wright is Hep C Free?" How do you respond and what medical documentation
LLOYDI provide my blood tests in Triumph
Over Hepatitis C
. I also get an ultra-sound and alpha pheta protein test each year
because I am a prime candidate for primary liver cancer. No doctor
informed me of viral load tests in 1994 nor did they administer one.
In 1996 Cedars did, but "lost-it." On April 10, 1997 UCLA ran one
and it was HCV non-detected. I saw the test, held it in my hand, asked
the doctor for a copy of all of my tests and I picked up a package
from the cashiers window when I left. Upon arriving home there was
no viral load test there, only the liver panel published in my book.
On several occasions I have called and written UCLA attempting to
obtain this test. I am always told that it is in the archives and
will take 3 months to obtain. I tell them I want it and as yet, have
never received it. This doctor, who made Elvis jokes about my herbal
usage, is a paid interferon researcher. I think he has made it impossible
for me to receive it. Further, this Hep C research doctor wrote a
letter to the gastro. It states that I needed to be checked at least
once a year for primary liver cancer as I have extreme family history
and after cancer, radiation and chemotherapy, my liver is in much
more danger than my biopsy indicates. No one ever told me about this
letter, I discovered it three years later when requesting all the
tests the Gastro had. Builds confidence in the professionals doesnít
it. I have had the yearly tests all come back negative.
9. ANNA: Tell us about the non-profit status of
your organization. What does it mean? What is the purpose of your
LLOYD: The purpose of Hepatitis
C Free is to inform victims of hep c that there is treatment available
that works. I want people to know that their doctors do not always
have the answers and that it is up to each individual to find out
how to save their own lives. I began the quest to help people who
have had no success with the medical community and to offer an alternative
to the disastrous interferon. I found a way to heal myself all the
while feeling great and it became my crusade to share this information.I
was also hoping that I would get some tax deductible donations in
order to help the thousands who cannot afford the program.
10. ANNA: Are there some nutritional supplements
that you advise HCV patients NOT to take?
LLOYD: Be sure not to take supplements containing
Iron, unless you have a blood test that suggests you need it. Also,
donít "over do" Vitamins A, and E, and avoid Tylenol. It is also possible
to take too much Selenium so read your dosages carefully. Live Cell
frozen thymus is the central theme I suggest to eradicate the virus.
The program is a synergy and I remind everyone that it is a group
of items that allow your body to heal, not a single item. After Interferon
did nothing but make me sicker, my doctors told me that I had 3 to
5 years left and that perhaps something may come along. This is when
I learned of the benefits of the thymus gland and thus began my search
for live cell thymus.
11. ANNA: WHAT IS LIVE CELL FROZEN THYMUS?
ANSWER: Enough cannot be said about Thymus.
Thymus is the number one killer of the Hepatitis C virus. There are
many forms: pills, liquid, natural and artificial. These all range
from worthless to terrific. One of these synthetic products is called
Thymosin. It is currently being tested in several countries around
the world in conjunction with Interferon. The results that have been
reported are good. However, Thymosin is not an item that I took, nor
do I recommend it. (Refer to Appendix C: Business Wire 11/18/94).
I tried several times to purchase this product directly
from the company and was denied. They did, however, advise me that
I could go to Singapore. There I could purchase a large quantity of
it and probably would not have any trouble bringing it back into the
U.S. The Thymus gland is a primary organ of the human immune system.
It reaches maximum size during early childhood. The
Thymus atrophies with age and the production of defense cells gradually
declines, making humans more vulnerable to inflammatory diseases and
The Thymus gland creates the T-4 "helper" white blood
cells that perform their specialized job in the human body of locating
invaders such as viruses, bacteria, or abnormal cells. The Thymus
gland also sends out the T-8 "killer" white blood cells to find invaders
and destroy them (11).
Those of us with advanced liver pathology, while feeling
better after practicing my recommendations, may not completely reverse
the path of the virus unless you incorporate the most aggressive and
NatCell frozen Thymus extract will deliver the best
possible results. I attribute most of my successful eradication of
Hepatitis C from my body as a direct result of consuming several thousand
dollars of this product in eighteen months. Keep in mind that I had
to pay as much as $ 600.00 a box to obtain the thymus from doctors.
I am proud to provide this same item for $200.00. I took one frozen
vial every other day. I thawed it in my hand, poured one half vial
under my tongue and held it for five minutes, and repeat. If I could
afford it, I would take it for the rest of my life. If Cortez had
found the fountain of youth, this would have been how he felt. You
can find cheaper products, for example Thymoic Protein A, listed in
Health and Healing, March 1997 (11). I took this product post healing.
I did not notice the jolt or the feeling of well-being associated
with the natural form. I question whether or not it was as effective.
Thymoic Protein A contains only one of the seven main properties of
the thymus gland. I also took Thymus pills every day. Be warned there
are some of these products that would not dissolve in water, even
after an entire month. These pass through you completely and into
the toilet. If you have Hepatitis C, you need NatCellô Thymus extract!
Thymic hormones and their down stream cell products
(such as interleukins and interferons) control all phases of maturation,
development, antigen commitment, proliferation and cytotoxic activity
of the various T cells. Thymic hormones also stimulate non-specific
phagocytic and cytotoxic cells to respond against foreign or "non-self"
Liver diseases, including chronic hepatitis and primary
biliary cirrhosis, have been successfully treated by thymus extract.
Results of a study using 102 patients with chronic hepatitis and primary
biliary cirrhosis showed an increase in T lymphocytes, increased functional
activity of mononuclear cells (increased chemotaxis and inhibition),
and decreased immunoglobulin counts. All of these indicators signify
an increased competence, which favors controlling the immunoinflammatory
process in the liver and a normalization of the clinical manifestation
of the disease leading to a favorable outcome (12).
These results are important not only for successful
treatment of a very difficult disease, which frequently has an unfavorable
outcome, but also for the implications for treatment of hepatitis
produced by other causes. Many of the inflammatory conditions of the
liver are caused by viruses, fungi, or mycobacteria (tuberculosis)
(13). Cellular immunity is the chief defense against these agents.
Successful treatment using thymus extracts suggests many exciting
possibilities for treatment of the presently untreatable ailments
of the liver using immunomodulating substances such as thymus extracts.
During my treatment I took 1 vial of NatCell thymus
every other day for 18 months. I also took 5-thymus capsules 2 times
12. ANNA: Is frozen thymus expensive, a lot of people
worry they can't afford it?
LLOYD: I paid a pretty penny for it back then
but now offer it on my website for $162.00 per box (this price includes
a 10% discount). I also offer a quantity discount, for those interested,
call me. There is a $40.00 Fed Ex Priority Overnight shipping fee
on all frozen shipments. For those who think that is a lot of money,
I ask you, how much is your life worth to you? For the record, when
I was sick, I mortgaged my home to the point that I could not afford
the monthly payment and rented it out, and moved into my barn. I concluded
that I had two choices 1. Die. 2. Live and be broke. I choose the
Lloyd Wright has provided a a statement from the
manufacturer of the frozen thymus extract, which explains how
it is different from Thymic Protein A : "The thymus provided by Author
and researcher Lloyd Wright is manufactured using our state-of-the-art
extraction and ultra-filtration process to preserve the integrity
of the active thymic molecules and peptides. The thymus extract sold
by Lloyd Wright provides broad-spectrum thymic peptides of 50,000
Daltons or less. Some thymus products have only one known peptide
(thymic protein A). Moreover, our propritary ultra-filtration technology
is a chemical solvent free process that eliminates unwanted compounds
such as fat and fibrous tissues typically found in powders. The live
cell thymus provides the molecules in the most natural state possible
and it is the highest quality peptide complex available. Kept frozen
to preserve integrity of all peptides.
CONCLUSION: I want to thank Lloyd for taking
the time to answer these questions. It was very interesting to consider
these isssues and learn more about Lloyd, his book, and his organization,
Hepatitis C Free.

REVIEWS OF TRIUMPH OVER HEPATITIS C,the
book written by Lloyd, which describes what he did to become "Hep
"I've seen my dear friend go from standing on death's
door to being a vital and healthy man again. He did it by following
a program that he has since written into his book, Triumph Over Hepatitis
C. Having been in the rock and roll business in the crazy 70's, I
witnessed a lot of abusive behavior by people I admired. Some of those
people are no longer with us but many of them, like Eric Clapton (who's
band I was in for 4 years), turned their lives around and totally
cleaned up their acts. Without the help that's available to people
who need it and ask for it, I doubt many of us would have succeeded.
For alcoholics and drug addicts there is AA and NA, and various other
support groups. For people with Hepatitis C there is good proven advice
in Lloyd Wright's book. If you know anyone who is suffering from this
devastating health problem, before you even go near Interferon, try
everything else you can to help-including getting this book for them.
As I have seen in my friend, it WORKS!" Sincerely, Yvonne Elliman
Recovery from Death's Door: Reviewer: Lyly Duguay,
PhD. from Malibu, CA. USA. January 25, 2000 "I have known Mr. Wright
for a number of years. I observed first hand his struggle with the
ravishes of Hepatitis C and his frustration with the ignorance and
arrogance he experienced with traditional medicine establishment,
just as he describes in his book. I saw how sick he was, and I thought
he would die. He describes this in detail in his book. I also saw
the effects of the healing process he went through, and how he has
recovered. Mr. Wright felt compelled to share his Triumph Over Hepatitis
C with lay people so they might benefit from what he learned and practiced
without their going through the agony and great financial cost that
he experienced. His book is not a treatise on Hepatitis C; but an account,
often times humorous, of his perilous journey through traditional
approaches to discovering and practicing an alternative and holistic
approach with herbs, foods and other natural supplements. His book,
Triumph Over Hepatitis C, is a "no holds barred" authentic account
of an ordinary human being in his struggle for survival. Not only
does he document the struggle, but he also lists specific remedies.
Throughout the book, the author is able to interject a sense of humor
and hope into that would otherwise be just a factual account. I witnessed
Mr. Wright's going from being at death's door to becoming well. I
have read his book more than once and recommend it for everyone who
has hepatitis. The book is also good reading for anyone who enjoys
brutally honest, extremely funny true life adventure."
Reviewer: Dr.John Finnegan from Malibu, Calif. USA
January 15, 2000
I reviewed Mr. Wright's book Triumph Over Hepatitis
C Prior to publication and conferred with him on the published edition.
I have read the entire volume. Mr. Wright was a patient of mine beginning
in 1996 and I worked with him in developing the remedy he describes
in Triumph Over Hepatitis C. Mr. Wright describes in his book his
condition prior to being diagnosed and presents a copy of his liver
biopsy showing chronic hepatitis c as well as significant liver damage
from cancer, radiation and chemotherapy. In accordance with his biopsy
results his liver enzymes readings were AST panel at 210 (1-41 normal)
and ALT panel at 245 (0-45normal). He was bedridden, and he could
not tolerate interferon treatment which he describes in a brutally honest
and gut busting fashion. Through the coarse of the book he describes
the good nutritional program along with a concentrated effort to take
everything in the remedy he describes in his book, he started to feel
much better right away, and a year later he was healthy and virus
free---they couldn't find the virus in him. He has been hepatitis
c free for almost 3 years and has liver enzyme readings of AST panel
at 23 and ALT panel at 12 which he displays copies of. Mr. Wright's
account of the events he encountered from contraction of hepatitis
c to his complete recovery and the remedy that saved his life is a
must read for anyone with Hepatitis C, cancer,HIV and aids. This is
a true patient to patient testimonial which can save new patients
a lot of disappointment, trouble and money. It is a good story that
gives real hope for the patient with dire diagnois. It would not
surprise me if this book is made into a movie in record time.
