How to Cure Autoimmune Hepatitis Caused by the COVID Vaccine and COVID-19 Infection


The development of autoimmune hepatitis caused by the COVID vaccine has been demonstrated in all of the major vaccines that are approved in developed nations across the world. Of course, prior to the development of vaccines, the COVID-19 disease itself was noted for causing autoimmune hepatitis and other liver disorders. In this discussion, we talk about autoimmune hepatitis misdiagnoses and infectious agents that commonly lie dormant in the liver and other organs, sometimes for decades, that can be “triggered” by infection, surgery, or vaccination. Doctors in the United States often do not look for these infectious agents, which are primarily parasitic because they are not trained to believe that Americans would never get a parasitic infection


Americans and Europeans are particularly squeamish about the idea of having a parasitic infection of any kind, particularly those involving worms, flukes, or any animal-like creature that can be seen with the naked eye. But the good news about a parasitic infection is that you can cure it at home. If you have been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis and wish to find a cure for this disease, consider the possibility that you have been misdiagnosed. Some bacterial infections can also cause symptoms of autoimmune hepatitis. Often, you can use the same treatment (e.g. Chlorine Dioxide Solution + Dimethylsulfoxide) to cure autoimmune hepatitis symptoms that are caused by bacterial or parasitic infection.


In this discussion, we offer information about common parasitic infections that can be triggered by illness or by vaccination. These infections are regularly misdiagnosed as autoimmune hepatitis. If you believe you may be host to one of these parasitic infections, it is possible to cure the disease using at-home treatment options.


Though scientists have theorized that perhaps the COVID virus attacks liver cells, this has not been scientifically validated yet at the time of this writing. Direct infection of liver cells with the COVID-19 virus has not been found, but residual viral antigens, on the other hand, have been observed in liver tissues in patients who have recently recovered from COVID-19 (up to 6 months post-recovery). So while many patients are led to believe that the COVID virus itself has perhaps compromised liver tissues, this has not yet been shown scientifically. Other theories regarding how COVID affects the liver include blood supply changes resulting in a lack of blood supply as well as infection of the ducts that conduct bile out of the liver and into the digestive system. Interestingly, however, hydatid disease (which is caused by infection with the tapeworm larvae) can cause larvae cysts to rupture, which can release larvae into the body to infect other organs. In turn, new larvae cysts can grow to quite a large size, causing pressure on the organs. Often, these cysts are mistaken for (or rather misdiagnosed as) cancerous tumors or as other disease processes that cannot be cured.

What is Autoimmune Hepatitis?

Autoimmune Hepatitis is defined as the presence of liver inflammation. It was first described in 1951. Scientists recognize that this disease seems to develop in people who have some sort of “susceptibility” and who develop the disease after being exposed to a “trigger”. A multitude of complicated theories have been presented in scientific literature, but consensus science dictates that there is no known cause and no known treatment for autoimmune hepatitis. Thus, scientists continue to investigate the intricacies of the immune system to come up with more and more complicated theories of how and why autoimmunity exists. But as their research delves deeper and deeper into the microscopic world of our immune system function, our holistic human experience disappears and the mechanistic view becomes less and less relevant to solving real-world problems.


In this discussion, we argue that the cause of autoimmune hepatitis following COVID-19 infection, influenza, or any number of infectious diseases and/or the administration of the COVID vaccine (or any vaccine) is a low-level infection that cannot be identified through standard laboratory analysis or that doctors don’t look for because they believe there is no known cause and no known cure for autoimmune hepatitis. In some cases, diagnosis of the diseases we talk about in this chapter depends on skilled lab workers who understand basic lab procedures such as keeping samples on ice at a particular temperature. Often, lab workers do not know how to successfully test for these diseases and actually find evidence that they exist. Indeed, doctors in the U.S. and Europe are not educated about parasites and often do not even believe that they could possibly exist in their American or European patients. 

The concept of “susceptibility” and “triggering events” is worth considering. There are other autoimmune diseases involving the liver that have successfully been matched with surprising underlying causes such as bacterial infection during childhood. Psoriasis is a good example of this. Psoriasis is a disease of the organs of detoxification (e.g. liver, kidneys, and skin) though it often also includes major digestive issues (such as Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis) and psoriatic arthritis (which is indistinguishable from rheumatoid arthritis except that it occurs in individuals who have psoriasis). Scientists have noted that many people who develop psoriasis have peptidoglycans from the streptococcus bacteria that cause severe digestive irritation and leaky gut syndrome. These peptidoglycans travel through the blood and end up in the joints and the skin tissues, causing severe irritation at these locations as well. Though most doctors believe there is no cure for psoriasis and subject their patients to devastating long-term chemotherapy treatments, studies have, in fact, shown that 80% of psoriasis sufferers who take only ox bile supplements (to not only support the liver, but to also dissolve the streptococcal peptidoglycans in the intestines) often cure their disease with other type of treatment. In psoriasis sufferers, lack of bile (due to liver infection with streptococcal bacteria) leads to a deficiency of fat soluble vitamins that are normally digested by the bile. A lack of these fat soluble vitamins leads to a downward spiral in terms of health and well-being, allowing the continued colonization of bacteria, viruses, or parasites in the liver, gallbladder, and other organs. 


Psoriasis is viewed as an “autoimmune disease” that also has no cure, yet people do cure this disease using ox bile, sunlight and sea water, and/or Chlorine Dioxide Solution. In this discussion, we argue that the common liver fluke and/or other types of infections pathogens may colonize areas of the body like the liver and gallbladder. When a person receives a vaccine, this “triggering event” leads to symptoms that doctors currently identify as “autoimmune hepatitis”, but in fact, these so-called “autoimmune” symptoms are actually symptoms of other curable diseases that doctors simply are not trained to recognize. 

Cholangiopathy / Infection of the Bile Ducts in the Liver

The biliary tree is a series of ducts in the liver through which bile is produced and flows into the digestive system. Bile is an important substance in the body. It is so important, in fact, that early physicians classified patients according to the four humors, two of which were related to bile (yellow bile and black bile–the other two humors were blood and phlegm). Many people today know practically nothing about the liver or bile or the important functions that bile performs in the body. 


Bile is produced by specialized cells and peribiliary glands in the liver and then it must travel through a series of tunnels or “ducts” to be dumped into either the gallbladder for storage or directly into the small intestine. Cholangiocytes are specialized cells that line the bile ducts and help in the production of bile. Infection of the cholangiocytes can lead to bile production issues and there are a number of disease states that result from clogged bile ducts. 


Issues with bile can lead to gallstones in both the liver and gallbladder (in those who have not had their gallbladders removed). Pharmaceuticals that are meant to control cholesterol levels in the body can have a negative impact on bile and the flow of bile, predisposing individuals to autoimmune hepatitis after the COVID vaccine. 


Gallstones can cause a variety of symptoms from upper back or shoulder pain to nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea. If you have recently been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis due to the COVID vaccine, consider doing Hulda Clark’s gallbladder cleanse to spur the removal of pathogens and toxins from the liver and gallbladder. 


Bile Ducts Clogged by Infection

The liver and the lymphatic system work together closely. When the cells that line the bile ducts become infected, abscesses may develop (cholangitic abscess) inside the liver. This type of infection often also involves the lymphatic system which is relevant in particular to the development of autoimmune hepatitis and the general feeling of ill health that accompanies this diagnosis.


Chronic infection in the liver may lead to a number of changes in the bile ducts. In primary sclerosing cholangitis, bile ducts become inflamed and scarred which ultimately causes them to become too narrow for the proper passage of bile, which in turn, causes chronic bile build-up inside the liver. The build-up of bile then damages the liver. 


In some situations, however, the biliary tree may experience a build-up of cells if normal programmed cell death does not occur. Issues with the DNA in liver cells can lead to cellular overgrowth. The lining of the bile ducts may then proliferate abnormally, another condition that can be caused specifically by liver flukes (Clonorchis sinensis, Opisthorchis, or Fasciolidae) infection. Lesions may appear in the liver ducts during an infection of this type.


Autoimmune Hepatitis Misdiagnosis #1: Liver Flukes Infection


Infection with liver flukes may include mild symptoms of indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, or abdominal pain. These symptoms are mostly caused by inflammation of the bile ducts. 


Liver flukes are a type of parasite that can live in the body for 25 to 30 years. They can infect the liver, the gallbladder or the bile duct in humans. Most people show no sign of infection or their symptoms are misdiagnosed by doctors. The longer the infection persists in the body, however, the more serious symptoms may become. Diagnosis of infection with liver flukes involves identification of the liver flukes’ eggs in the stool. 


There are several types of liver flukes that exist on all continents across the world. These parasites can infect humans quietly and cause no symptoms for decades until provoked or triggered. Infection may occur through contact with infected water. The flukes can easily enter the body through the skin or as a result of infected food or water consumption. 


Conventional medicine doctors often prescribe one of the following drugs for the treatment of liver flukes: Triclobendazole, Albendazole, Clorsulon, Closantel, Oxyclozanide, or Rafoxanide. Unfortunately, however, liver flukes are becoming resistant to most of these medications. So, in addition to misdiagnosis with autoimmune hepatitis, many patients with an infection with liver flukes then receive medications to which liver flukes are resistant. But luckily, if you suspect that you have an infection with liver flukes that may be causing symptoms that your doctor has labeled as “autoimmune hepatitis”, you can treat the infection with non-toxic alternative treatments that are available over-the-counter.


Clonorchis Infection

Infection with a Clonorchis liver fluke (also known as the oriental liver fluke) can occur if a person eats raw or undercooked seafood or if they are exposed to contaminated water. It can infect the liver, gallbladder, and bile ducts in humans. Symptoms may be non-existent, mild, or severe. The average lifespan of a liver fluke of this type is 25 to 30 years. 


Symptoms of infection include:


  • Indigestion
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Nausea


Clonorchis sinensis Alternative Treatments


  • Chlorine Dioxide and DMSO



This type of infection is treatable using Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Solution and Dimethylsulfoxide.  Follow Jim Humble’s Protocol 1000 PLUS for up to 6 months or longer to kill liver flukes and cure autoimmune hepatitis.



  • Ivermectin and Albendazole


Ivermectin can be used to cure autoimmune hepatitis, but patients need to be aware that liver flukes may be resistant to ivermectin, especially if it is used as a stand-alone treatment. Consider combining ivermectin with albendazole to treat not just liver flukes but also tapeworm larvae that may be hiding in your liver or gallbladder.


Opisthorchis Infection

This type of liver fluke infection is also caused by eating raw or undercooked seafood. Like Clonorchis, an Opisthorchis liver fluke infection often does not produce any symptoms or the symptoms may be mild and can last a long-time. These liver flukes also have a 25 to 30 year lifespan. Symptoms may become more severe over time. 


  • Indigestion
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Nausea

Opisthorchis Alternative Treatments

Autoimmune hepatitis is treatable using Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Solution and Dimethylsulfoxide.  Follow Jim Humble’s Protocol 1000 PLUS for up to 6 months or longer to overcome the infection. When you overcome an infection with liver flukes, it will cure autoimmune hepatitis if this was, in fact, the underlying cause.

Ivermectin and Albendazole

Ivermectin can be used to cure autoimmune hepatitis. However, patients who use this medication need to be aware that liver flukes are often resistant to ivermectin, especially if it is used as a stand-alone treatment. Combine it with albendazole for higher success rates. One could also combine ivermectin treatment with the use of CDS and DMSO as long as the ivermectin is administered at least 1 hour before and after CDS / DMSO administration which should be taken by mouth.

Fascioliasis Infection

An infection with the Fascioliasis parasite is also known as the “common liver fluke” or the “sheep liver fluke”. This type of infection is common throughout the world wherever there are sheep or cattle. People become infected with this type of liver fluke by eating immature larvae present on plants that are contaminated with the parasite. Young liver fluke “worms” move through the intestinal wall into the abdominal cavity eventually finding their way into liver tissues and the bile ducts. Inside the bile ducts, they mature into adult flukes that produce eggs. 


Fascioliasis Alternative Treatments

This type of infection is treatable using Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Solution and Dimethylsulfoxide.  Follow Jim Humble’s Protocol 1000 PLUS for up to 6 months or longer to kill liver flukes and restore liver health. 

Ivermectin and Albendazole

As a cure for autoimmune hepatitis, ivermectin and albendazole or fenbendazole can work by killing liver flukes or other types of infection in the liver, but patients need to be aware that liver flukes are often resistant to ivermectin when it is used as a stand-alone treatment. Combine it with albendazole /fenbendazole or Chlorine Dioxide and DMSO treatments. 

Autoimmune Hepatitis Misdiagnosis #2: Pre-existing Hydatid Cyst and Tapeworm Infection

Infection with tapeworms, also known as hydatid disease, hydatidosis, or cystic echinococcosis is a problem worldwide. This disease is caused by infection with the larvae of the parasite Echinococcus granulosus. This species of tapeworm can create cysts in organs such as the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, bones, kidneys, or brain, but the liver is the most common location for these larvae to take up residence. These cysts are often misdiagnosed as cancer or autoimmune necrosis of the liver or other organs. In the liver, the cysts tend to cluster near the biliary tree, where bile is conducted through the liver to the gallbladder or into the intestines. They form tiny “fistulas” or tunnels from the cyst that lead into the biliary tree allowing the tapeworm larvae to still have an impact on digestion and general health via the liver.


Larval stages of Echinococcus may also infect the lungs and cause alveolar echinococcosis and respiratory symptoms.


Humans are typically infected through pets or farm animals. Tapeworm parasite eggs are found in food, water, and soil. Infection occurs through direct contact with the eggs. Dogs are definitive hosts for tapeworm eggs. Though deworming measures may help prevent human infection, it is often not enough to protect dog owners from the disease. Other methods of infection include through meat products or through interaction with the environment. While this may seem like grim news for dog owners, or anyone who likes to spend time gardening, the fact is, tapeworm infection is a ubiquitous problem not because of exposure, but because the human immune system is not strong enough to fight off these parasites. Improving the strength of the immune system and doing regular anti-parasite cleanses should be part of a healthy routine for those who wish to avoid serious adverse effects this type of infection.


Hydatid infection can happen quietly and last for many years until the cysts either grow large enough to cause symptoms of disease or rupture due to a triggering event such as vaccination or another type of infection.


Echinococcosis infection of both the liver and the lungs has strong associations with allergic reaction and autoimmune symptoms. Both types of infection (in the liver and the lungs) can lead to anaphylactic reactions in some patients. Anaphylactic reaction is a dramatic expression of the connection between autonomic nervous system and the immune system. Anaphylaxis is a strong allergic reaction. Allergic reactions are related intimately to autoimmune reactions. The primary difference between allergy and autoimmunity has to do with the type of T-cell involved in both types of reaction and also the fact that autoimmune reactions involve tissue destruction whereas allergic reactions do not. In an allergic reaction, the immune system reacts to antigens that are harmless. In autoimmune reactions, the immune system appears to be attacking human tissues (though in at least some cases, the immune system is actually attacking a pathogen that doctors are not trained to be able to identify). 


To successfully infect a human host, tapeworm larvae release substances that modulate the host’s immune function. The substances they release stimulate a strong anti-inflammatory reaction as well as autoimmune responses that make it easier for the tapeworm to survive in a human body unharmed by the immune system. Though the immune system may produce certain antibodies, it is possible for the tapeworm larvae to survive in the liver due to their efforts at modulating the human immune system.   


Tapeworm larvae in the liver produce the following immune system responses in the human body:


  • Complement modulation
  • Metabolic adaptation to the host’s body
  • Immunogenic antigen B release into the cystic fluid
  • Induction of CD4+CD8+FOXP3+T
  • Impaired activation of the toll-like receptor
  • Dendritic cell maturation influence


Symptoms of Tapeworm Cysts Rupture in the Liver, Lungs, Spleen, Pancreas, Bones, Kidneys, or Brain


Symptoms of hydatid cyst infection depend on the location of the cysts. Often patients are infected early in life and experience no symptoms of infection for up to 15 years after the initial infection takes place. Infection with tapeworm larvae may occur at any age. There are case studies of children who have been misdiagnosed with epilepsy when, in fact, they have hydatid cysts in their brain tissues, for example. Seizures caused by tapeworm eggs in the brain is called neurocysticercosis.


General Physical Symptoms of Tapeworm Cysts


  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Hives or rash
  • Inflammation / Edema
  • Respiratory symptoms
  • Allergy symptoms
  • Brain fog

Symptoms of Liver Cysts


  • Pain in the upper right abdomen, just under the ribs
  • Tachycardia (fast heartbeat)
  • Low blood pressure (hypotension)
  • POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)
  • Inflammation of the abdomen (due to liver swelling)
  • Anaphylactic Shock (if cysts rupture)
  • Itching

  • Misdiagnosis of liver cancer / liver tumor
  • Weight loss
  • General malaise and weakness
  • Signs of liver failure
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • Misdiagnosis of autoimmune hepatitis 
  • Metastases of the larva and cysts (which may be misdiagnosed as cancer) to other organs such as the brain, lungs, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, intestines, etc.


Symptoms of Lung Hydatid Cysts


  • Chronic cough
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chest pain
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Misdiagnosis of lung tumors / lung cancer


Symptoms of Spleen Hydatid Cysts


  • Dull, dragging ache in the abdomen

  • High blood pressure due to compression of the cysts against major blood vessels
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Often misdiagnosed as splenic cystic lesion, epidermoid cysts, pseudocysts, splenic abscesses, hematomas, or spleen cancer


Symptoms of Bone Hydatid Cysts

Bone hydatid cysts are regularly misdiagnosed. MRI does show distinctive features that allow doctors to properly diagnose hydatid cysts in most bone tissues, especially in the spine. In the past, treatment of bone hydatid cysts was strictly surgical, but today drug therapies may be prescribed by doctors who are able to recognize this disease. 


  • Misdiagnosis as tuberculosis, chondrosarcoma, or cancer of the bone tissue
  • Misdiagnosis as giant cell bone tumors or bone cysts
  • Misdiagnosis as osteoporosis
  • Misdiagnosis as spondylitis
  • Misdiagnosis as chronic osteomyelitis
  • Misdiagnosis as aneurysmal bone cysts
  • Misdiagnosis as neurofibromatosis
  • Misdiagnosis as fibrocystic disease
  • Pain in the bone tissues
  • Pathological fracture of the bones (osteoporosis symptoms)
  • Severe back pain
  • Weakness
  • Disturbances in the function of the anal sphincter 
  • Neurological disturbances


Symptoms of Brain Hydatid Cysts


  • Misdiagnosis as epilepsy, particularly in children
  • Increase in intracranial pressure
  • Neurological problems
  • Paralysis
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Mood alteration
  • Skull deformity
  • Swelling of the optic disc (due to increased cranial pressure)
  • Anaphylactic reaction (if the cyst ruptures)


Spontaneous Cure from Tapeworm Infection

There are numerous reports of people with tapeworm infection experiencing a “spontaneous cure”. Immune suppression appears to create a situation that makes tapeworm infection worse in human hosts which means that steroid treatment for autoimmune hepatitis could worsen the general health situation of most patients who are misdiagnosed in conventional medical settings. The disease is sometimes considered to be “opportunistic” in that it may primarily occur in humans who have a lower level of immunity. Steroid treatments suppress the immune system which gives liver flukes and tapeworm larvae the opportunity to grow and cause additional health problems in human hosts.


Conventional Medicine Treatment for Hydatid Cysts

Hydatid infection of the liver is usually treated with surgery by conventional medicine doctors. Sometimes doctors use a laparoscopic procedure to remove cysts from the liver though some doctors may prefer to use more invasive methods. The surgical procedure involves removal of the tapeworm cysts from the liver followed by scolidical (anti-tapeworm) medications. Surgeons then fill the empty holes left from the cysts with tissues from the greater omentum. This procedure has a high mortality rate and should not be used unless the cyst is pushing on a vital organ and death is imminent without surgical removal.


Scolicidal agents produce serious side effects. Hypertonic saline solution (20%) is the scolidical medicine most commonly used to clean out hydatid cysts in the liver because it has the lowest rate of serious side effects. However, some studies have shown that hypertonic saline solution irrigation causes the hydatid infection to spread. The spreading of a hydatid infection mimicks the metastases of cancerous tumors in the body and some experts even believe that many cancers are actually misdiagnosed parasite infections. 


When injected directly into the liver tissues during surgery, hypertonic saline solution causes the bile duct and biliary tree tissues to swell and become damaged, yet another reason to avoid surgery as a treatment for hydatid cyst disease. 


Eucalpytus Essential Oil 1% as a Surgical Scolicidal Agent

Some studies have looked at the use of Eucalyptus essential oil (1%) as an alternative to hypertonic saline solution in the treatment of tapeworm cysts in the liver. Eucalyptus essential oil has a scolicidal / anti-tapeworm larvae effect. Unfortunately however, when injected directly into the liver during surgery, Eucalyptus essential oil can also damage liver tissue and cause inflammation in the bile ducts that make up the biliary tree.

Normal Saline Solution as a Surgical Scolicidal Agent

Normal saline solution, in contrast to hypertonic saline solution, can also be used as an anti-tapeworm agent during surgery. Normal saline solution does not cause bile duct injury or inflammation. However, again, surgery is not the recommended course of treatment if your doctor follows up a request for a re-evaluation of your autoimmune hepatitis by trying to prove that you have a tapeworm disease. If you are diagnosed with tapeworm cysts, note that there are pharmaceutical agents that can effectively treat this disease.

Conventional Medicine Treatment Summary

Research has shown that direct exposure of the liver and bile ducts to scolicidal agents tends to cause tapeworm infections to spread. Surgery is no longer the recommended treatment strategy. Rather, doctors who are knowledgeable about tapeworm infection in humans may prescribe albendazole and ivermectin to kill tapeworm larvae in organ tissues. Patients may be able to obtain these anti-parasitic medications over-the-counter as veterinary medications if they are not available as human medications in the country where they are living.


Albendazole + Ivermectin (Over-the-Counter Medications That Can Be Used as an At-Home Treatment for Autoimmune Hepatitis Symptoms Caused by Hydatid Infection

There are alternative treatment options available to cure hydatid disease, but if you would prefer to use pharmaceutical medications, over-the-counter treatments are available. If you have been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis and told there is no cure for the disease, you may wish to try taking albendazole, ivermectin, or a combination of these two medications to see if they alleviate your autoimmune hepatitis symptoms. If your autoimmune hepatitis is, in fact, caused by hydatid cysts / tapeworm infection or another type of parasite, then these over-the-counter medications can help you overcome the problem. 

Note that these medications may only be available in your area as veterinary medications. This author has successfully used these medications without serious side effects or health problems.

At the end of this article, however, we discuss the use of Chlorine Dioxide Solution and Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Dimethylsulfoxide as more powerful alternative treatments than albendazole and ivermectin. The natural cures that we discuss at the end of this article, including herbal cures for autoimmune hepatitis can kill tapeworm larvae in any organ of the body as well as other types of pathogens that may be causing symptoms of autoimmune hepatitis. 

Fenbendazole can be substituted for albendazole if albendazole is not available.

Autoimmune Hepatitis Misdiagnosis #3: Leishmaniasis Infection

Another type of infection that is often mistaken for autoimmune hepatitis is Visceral Leishmaniasis (also known as kala-azar). Leishmaniasis is caused by Leishmania bacterial infection which is transmitted by sandflies. It is common in the tropics, subtropics, and southern Europe including the Mediterranean basin. Countries where this disease is common include Turkey, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sudan, and Brazil though some studies have indicated that this disease may be able to spread through other mechanisms outside of the endemic areas via human and animal “reservoirs”. 


Visceral Leishmaniasis infantum is a disease that is transmitted via the sandfly, but dogs are a domestic reservoir and studies have shown that humans can act as a reservoir in the transmission of the disease as well. Certain wild animals also help in the spread of Leishmaniasis. Infections may be present without symptoms. People who do not have symptoms of Visceral Leishmaniasis can theoretically function as a carrier for the disease or a “super spreader” though studies have not officially proven whether or not this actually occurs.


Visceral Leishmaniasis infection produces the following symptoms:


  • Fever
  • Decrease in red blood cells
  • Decrease in white blood cells
  • Decrease in platelets
  • Inflammation of the liver
  • Liver damage
  • Inflammation of the spleen
  • Bone Marrow destruction
  • Rash
  • Joint Pain / Arthritis
  • Photosensitivity
  • Oral ulcers
  • Cachexia / Wasting Syndrome (similar that seen in HIV / AIDs, Cancer, and COPD)
    • Significant Weight loss
    • Lack of appetite
    • Fatigue
    • Significant Muscle loss
  • Autoantibodies in the blood serum


Visceral Leishmaniasis has been scientifically shown to mimic or exacerbate several autoimmune diseases including:


  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Autoimmune Hepatitis
  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Serum Sickness
  • Polyarteritis nodosa
  • Cryoglobulinemic vasculitis
  • Autoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • Ewan’s Syndrome


Diagnosis of Visceral Leishmaniasis can be challenging because the symptoms of this disease are identical to various other infectious and non-infectious diseases like cancer, AIDS / HIV, COPD, etc.. Indeed, the human immune response to Leishmania mimics autoimmune diseases like serum sickness or autoimmune hepatitis. But doctors who attempt to treat Visceral Leishmaniasis with the usual autoimmune disease pharmaceuticals (using steroids primarily), can result in patient death because steroid treatment lowers immunity, which gives a pathogen like Leishmaniasis, the opportunity to grow and spread. 


Conventional medicine doctors often use pentavalent antimony as the treatment for Leishmaniasis, but this treatment can cause serious adverse effects (including death). Chlorine Dioxide Solution or Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Dimethylsulfoxide treatments are at-home treatments for Leishmaniasis that are far less toxic than antinomy and yet still extremely effective.

Alternative Cure for Leishmaniasis



One alternative cure that has been used in conventional medical settings is thermotherapy. Thermotherapy involves removing the blood from the body using a machine similar to a dialysis machine. This machine heats the blood and then cools the blood before returning it to the body. Thermotherapy has been used to cure HIV as well as cancer and doctors have successfully used this therapy to cure Leishmaniasis as well. 


Chlorine Dioxide Solution and Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO)

If you suspect that you have an infection with Leishmaniasis and you have been misdiagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis from the COVID vaccine or from the COVID infection itself, consider doing Jim Humble’s Protocol 1000 PLUS using Chlorine Dioxide Solution and DMSO. Chlorine Dioxide has a long history of use throughout the world as a water purifier and disinfectant. It was used to decontaminate U.S. federal buildings after the anthrax scare and it has the ability to kill Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) as well as Listeria. This powerful medicine has an extremely broad spectrum of action and it can be used to kill any of the pathogens that we are discussing in this chapter.


Herbal Cures for Autoimmune Hepatitis That Has Been Misdiagnosed: Anti- Leishmaniasis Herbs

Several herbs have been studied for their effectiveness as a cure for Leishmaniasis including:



  • Ferula assafoetida



The asafoetida plant is used to treat a variety of health issues including seizures, neural diseases (diseases involving the nervous system), kidney disease and kidney pain, rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic diseases, muscular cramps, hypertension, and as a plant that protects and supports the liver. Ferula assafoetida also supports the memory and appetite.


Ferula assafoetida also has the ability to kill tapeworm larvae and possibly liver flukes in organs throughout the body. It can cure hydatid cyst disease or Leishmaniasis if this is the underlying cause of autoimmune hepatitis. 



  • Zataria multiflora



Zataria multiflora is another autoimmune hepatitis cure for those who have been misdiagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. This herbal cure for hepatitis is even more effective than Ferula assafoetida at treating hydatid cyst disease.


  • Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice Root)
  • Allium sativa (Garlic)
  • Artemisia aucheri
  • Cephalis ipecacuana
  • Eucalyptus globulus


These plant medicines are all candidates as a cure for autoimmune hepatitis triggered by COVID vaccines. Because Leishmaniasis infects liver tissue and these plants are able to cure Leishmaniasis, these plants can also function as herbal cures for autoimmune hepatitis. Choose the herbal cure for autoimmune hepatitis that has a mechanism of action that best fits your post vaccine syndrome symptoms. 

Autoimmune Hepatitis Symptoms

Symptoms of autoimmune hepatitis after COVID vaccine administration includes:


  • Feelings of ill health
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Yellowing of the whites of the eyes
  • Yellowing of the skin (jaundice)
  • Dark-colored urine (choluria)
  • Itchy skin
  • Liver inflammation
  • Pain in the upper right side of the abdomen, just under the ribs
  • Lack of bile secretion or lack of bile flow into the digestive tract (acholia)


What is Autoimmune Hepatitis?


Vaccines That Have Been Reported as a Cause of Post Vaccine Autoimmune Hepatitis


  • AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine (ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine)


  • A 79 year old man developed autoimmune hepatitis after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine. He suffered for 3 months with pain on the upper right side of his abdomen, jaundice (yellowing of the skin), itching, dark-colored urine, and a lack of bile flow into the digestive tract. Doctors initially prescribed Hydrocortisone at 100 mg for 3 days, but then switched the patient to Prednisolone 50 mg per day along with Azathioprine 50 mg per day. The patient continued with steroid therapy taking prednisolone at 10 mg per week thereafter.


  • Moderna-COVID-19 Vaccine


  • A 65 year old woman developed autoimmune hepatitis after receiving the COVID vaccine. Her symptoms developed 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine. This patient had elevated immunoglobulin G and antinuclear antibodies. Her liver histopathology showed expansion of the portal tracts and severe inflammation along with tissue necrosis in the liver. Doctors prescribed steroid treatment with prednisolone. 


  • Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 mRNA Vaccine


  • A 61 year old woman developed antinuclear antibodies and anti-smooth muscle antibodies along with elevated immunoglobulin G. A liver biopsy showed histopathological changes that were consistent with autoimmune hepatitis after the COVID vaccine. She developed the symptoms of disease within 1 month after the vaccine. Doctors prescribed steroid treatment and she responded positively.


  • A 35 year old female developed autoimmune hepatitis after the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. This woman had given birth 3 months prior and she developed high blood pressure during her pregnancy for which her doctor prescribed Labetalol, 100 mg twice daily. She received the COVID vaccine 2 weeks before developing autoimmune hepatitis.  She developed itchy skin, yellowing of the skin and eyes, and dark colored urine before going to the emergency room. Doctors looked for liver stones but found instead that the liver showed evidence of drug-toxin related injury, autoimmune hepatitis, infection-related damage. She was successfully treated with steroids.



Conventional Medicine: Autoimmune Hepatitis Steroid Treatment 

Steroid Treatment

As noted in the case studies above, treatment with steroids is the standard for anyone who has been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis caused by COVID infection or from the vaccine. But after initial success with steroids, this type of treatment can worsen your condition if you are actually suffering from a parasite infection. Steroids lower your immune system response, giving infectious organisms the opportunity to grow and propagate inside the body.

Steroid Addiction

Steroid addiction is a major problem in developed countries, particularly in the U.S.. Doctors prescribe steroids to suppress the immune system, but steroids are addictive and patients often find that even treatment with hydrocortisone cream can lead, over time, to severe withdrawal symptoms. 


If you have been prescribed steroids and you wish to stop taking them, read about how to overcome steroid addiction here.


Post COVID Vaccine Autoimmune Hepatitis Herbal Cures

Fumaria officinalis / Earth Smoke Plant for Autoimmune Hepatitis

Fumitory, also known as Earth Smoke Plant or Fumaria officinalis is a plant that can have miraculous effects on a variety of liver and gallbladder problems. This herbal remedy for autoimmune hepatitis should be taken at 250 mg, 3 times daily. Take 1 dose before lunch and then another dose before dinner and the final dose before bed. Treatment with this herbal cure for autoimmune hepatitis may take 2 months to 1 year to take full effect as a cure for autoimmune hepatitis caused by the COVID vaccine or infection. 


Fumaria officinalis has been used to cure the following diseases and disorders of the gallbladder and liver:


  • Psoriasis
  • Liver Disease
  • Gallstones 
  • Post Surgical Cholocystectomy Syndrome
  • Biliary Dyskinesia
  • Chronic Diarrhea


Silybum marianum / Milk Thistle for Autoimmune Hepatitis

Silybum marianum also known as Milk Thistle is an herbal cure for autoimmune hepatitis that is used in a variety of contexts related to liver disease. It is the most researched herbal remedy for liver disease. It may or may not be able to cure autoimmune hepatitis as a stand-alone treatment, but this plant medicine is one of the only medicines that can protect the liver from the effects of eating poisonous mushrooms. It protects the liver through various mechanisms of action that have been scientifically established including:


  • Antioxidant activity
  • Blockade of toxins 
  • Enhanced production of proteins
  • Anti-fibrotic activity (it prevents the buildup of cells in the bile ducts to promote bile flow)
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Modulates the immune system


Milk Thistle has been scientifically proven to reduce liver injury caused by acetaminophen overdose, carbon tetrachloride, phenylhydrazine, iron overdose, alcohol, ischemia (lack of blood flow) due to cold, and ingestion of the poisonous Amanita mushroom. It is a mainstay in the treatment of the following liver diseases:


  • Chronic hepatitis
  • Liver cancer
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Alcoholic liver disease
  • Fatty liver dIsease
  • Toxin-induced liver diseases


If you have been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, this herbal cure is worth considering because it can help resolve a variety of problems pertaining to liver function, from exposure to toxic chemicals in the COVID vaccine to pre-existing infection with a parasite. 


NOTE: Take Silybum marianum at least one hour before and/or after Chlorine Dioxide treatment or treatment with any other Reactive Oxygen Species medicine to avoid canceling out the effects of these oxidant medications. Silybum marianum is a potent antioxidant which can cancel out the medicinal effects of oxidant medications. 

Treatments to Address Lack of Bile Flow in Autoimmune Hepatitis

Ox Bile Supplements

If you have reduced bile flow, you may have either diarrhea or constipation depending on your circumstances. Individuals who have had their gallbladder removed may have chronic diarrhea because the liver no longer has its side-kick storage organ (the gallbladder) to regulate bile flow. If your bowel movements are a gray color, that is a sign of reduced bile flow. Diarrhea can also be a sign of reduced bile flow in some cases too. If bile flow is restricted or reduced for some reason, the body may not be able to digest fats, which means that fats go in through the mouth and come out undigested on the other end. 


Taking an ox bile supplement is a way to support the liver and gallbladder function as well general health and well-being. Take this supplement in tandem with meals that include fats as well as with supplements that include any of the fat soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, E, and K). Taking ox bile will help your body properly digest and absorb these fat soluble vitamins, which will improve your immune system function and general health. 


If you are suffering from autoimmune hepatitis due to the COVID vaccine or due to prior infection with COVID-19, ox bile supplements will help you digest your food better, absorb nutrients more effectively, take the burden off of the liver and gallbladder in terms of enzyme production. While the ox bile itself may not be re-absorbed into the hepatic circulation of bile throughout the body, there may be leftover human bile that can be re-absorbed by the liver (through the blood supply), which means that the liver will not have to produce as much bile (because some of it is being recycled). 


If you have had your gallbladder removed and you have chronic diarrhea as a result, it may take a few weeks for your body to build up its natural supply of bile again if you are taking ox bile supplements. 


Take 500-1000 mg of ox bile at every meal if you are currently suffering from autoimmune hepatitis. Continue with this dose for at least 3 weeks to 6 months. If, however, you have had your gallbladder removed, you will need to continue taking this dose of ox bile for the rest of your life.

Coffee Enemas

Coffee Enemas became famous as part of a generalized healing protocol for various diseases through Dr. Gerson, the first doctor to present a legitimate cure for cancer to Congress, whose treatments were later rejected because they endangered the super-profitable cancer industry. Dr. Gerson went into exile and opened specialized hospitals to cure diseases in other countries including Mexico and Hungary, but patients can follow the Gerson Protocol at home, or merely use coffee enemas to support detoxification of the liver and gallbladder after being diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis after the COVID vaccine (or due to an active COVID infection). 

Dr. Hulda Clark’s Gallbladder Cleanse for Restoring Liver and Gallbladder Health

If you are looking for a cure for autoimmune hepatitis, Dr. Hulda Clark’s Gallbladder Cleanse is a good starting place. This is a famous cleanse that releases gallstones from both the liver and the gallbladder without surgery. Gallstones can clog the bile ducts and make it harder to kill parasites that are living inside these organs. Removing gallstones allows bile to flow more easily into the digestive system which will have a generally positive impact on your health, but start by doing a parasite cleanse before jumping into the gallstone removal process using the gallbladder cleanse. 


Dr. Hulda’ Clark’s Gallbladder Cleanse is one of the best at-home treatments that you can use to support liver and gallbladder health. This cleanse will help you restore bile flow, which will reduce inflammation in the liver and gallbladder. It will improve digestion and general well-being. This cleanse works in tandem with Reactive Oxygen Species medicine treatments to kill pathogenic infection. 

Autoimmune Hepatitis Cure for Misdiagnosed or Undiagnosed Infections

Reactive Oxygen Species Medicines

Reactive Oxygen Species Medicines include any of the following:


Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Chlorine Dioxide Solution can be combined with Dimethylsulfoxide to enhance their effects and help them find their way deep into liver and gallbladder tissues to kill infections caused by various types of pathogens. 


Chlorine Dioxide Solution and DMSO can be used together even by pregnant women or women who are lactating. Infants and children can also take these medicines safely.  It is the gold-standard cure for autoimmune disease. Patients do not need to know their exact diagnosis to benefit from using this medication to cure autoimmune hepatitis.  Use the Jim Humble’s Starting Procedure and then move on to the Protocol 1000 PLUS to treat autoimmune hepatitis at home.


Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is an FDA approved medication for use in pregnant women. This substance has a toxicity level similar to that of water, but it is a powerful pharmaceutical with the broadest medicinal action of any substance currently approved by the FDA. Read more about DMSO here to learn how to use it to cure a variety of different diseases, including autoimmune hepatitis caused by COVID or the vaccine.
