Hepatitis



The hepatitis virus has an incubation period of 15 - 50 days before its symptoms start to be revealed. The symptoms range in severity from mild cold symptoms to extreme health disorders. The main symptom is fatigue which can be accompanied by a loss of appetite, fever, dark urine, vomiting, sour/sweet taste, upper right stomach discomfort, yellowing of the sclera, and jaundice symptoms.

Using TCM theories this pattern is closely related to the Spleen and Liver functions.
