[YEA] 02/17/2009: Freddie from Buckeye, AZ, USA: "I tried Lecithin. A Bechtel engineer who worked at a laboratory when he was younger told me that they grew the herpes virus. They used Lecithin to control and kill the herpes virus. He saw the herpes breakout on my face one day at work. He told me to take 2500 mg each day for a month. I asked him why he hasn't come forward with this information. He said that the FDA was too powerful to fight.
It worked for me. I haven't had a breakout in 20 years.
As I understand it, hospitals use Lecithin based baby formulas on new born babies born to women with genital herpes.
Lecithin 2500 mg a day for a month"Replies
[YEA] 06/10/2010: Ss from Ca, Usa replies: "I tried lecithin because of Freddy's comment. I started lecithin (3600 mg/day) almost 2 months ago and have not had an outbreak since. Prior to that I was getting outbreaks every week or two due to the amount of stress I am under. Stress is still there but herpes thankfully is not. You can buy it any any health food store. It comes in 1200 mg softgels and the recommended dosage is 3 softgels per day. Freddy said to take 2500 mg for a month but it has worked so well for me that I'm afraid to stop taking it because of the weekly breakouts I was having before. Occasionally I do feel a tingle in the spot where I used to break out but the blister never appears and the tingling quickly disappears. I read through all the boards and this is the only remedy I've tried and luckily it worked for me."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 07/30/2010: Julie B from Las Vegas, Nevada replies: "I purchases lecithin (soy based) for the first time this week because of Freddie's comment above. It happened so, that day I felt that burning, tingling feeling of an outbreak starting to surface, usually I never have much discomfort but when I do it's no stopping it. I decided to take 2 gel capsules 1200mg each, and IT WORKED! To my surprise that darn thing never appeared. My challenge now is to take it daily for a month and see what happens. I'm just concerned about any side effects and if it's safe to take the higher dosage over an extended period of time. I am an otherwise normal, healthy individual and from what I read this supplement is good for other health benefits. I don't want to cause any additional health concerns. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated."
10/05/2010: Niki from Decatur, Ga., Usa replies: "Julie B I'm new to this forum, but I was wondering How r u doing? Is the lecithin still worker? Please let me know."
04/23/2011: Maryland from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "I started this week on Lecithin, 2 capsules of 1200mg each once a day and will let you guys know how I am doing.
Btw, I am not only doing this but I am doing the 3 tablespoons a day of apple cider vinegar and a 1/2 cup a day of water with 1/4 tsp of baking soda and 1/4 tsp of lemon (one of Ted's recipes).
I am also taking vitamins A, C, E, d3, L-Lysine, Zinc AND Magnesium. I am doing everything I can to get rid of it. I had 6 outbreaks in 8 months, and enough is enough."
[NAY] 05/14/2011: Maryland from Los Angeles, Ca, Usa replies: "Update: I did feel a bit of itching down there and rubbed coconut oil on my genital. So far the lecithin hasn't worked in full effect, but I am glad the coconut oil kept the herpes from creating a new outbreak.
I was underweight, so I think my immune system was compromised, and that's why the lecithin hasn't worked yet. I'll keep you guys posted, and hopefully next time I post, I will be reporting no itching or outbreaks!"
05/23/2011: Maryland from Los Angeles, Ca, Usa replies: "I increased the lecithin dosage from 2400mg to 4800mg and will try for another month.
I still have itching coming and going, if a lesion appears I use coconut oil and they disappear fast. I think the virus is becoming weak, when lesions appear they are usually tiny or just a bump.
I am also taking 1000mg lysine and vitamins A, E, C, D3, zinc and magnesium."
06/23/2012: Citygirl27 from Richardson, Tx, Usa replies: "If the pills aren't getting results, try granulated lecithin. Looks strange, tastes buttery."
11/29/2012: Hopeful from New York replies: "Can you please specify which Lethitin you took to get rid of herpes ( the soy based or egg yolk based one)? Thank you"
12/29/2012: Enxy from Karachi, Sindh replies: "Hi there. I wanted to ask that do we have to keep on taking the lecithin tablets forever or just a month like Freddie said? im confused, pls help!! Thanks!!"
[YEA] 01/24/2009: Meg from Grafton, WI: "Grow some lemon balm (melissa officianalis) in your garden. It is easy and prolific in a sunny spot. Just before it flowers, cut down about 1/3 of the plant and hang it upside down in a dry, out-of-the-sun place. When it is really dry (crumbles in you hand), crumble the leaves into a bag or dish. Discard the stems (makes good compost.)
Further chop/mince the lemon balm using a food chopper to as small as you can... this should be the consistency of ground spices or as small as you can go. If you can find gelatin capsules, get some and stuff the ground lemon balm into the capsules. You will get 1/2 to 1 teaspoon into a capsule. If you can't find capsules, take a teaspoon in some yogurt - let it soften a bit first.
At the first sign of a herpes outbreak, take one or two capsules 2 or 3 times during the day for a day or two. It will avoid or greatly minimize the outbreak. For an extra boost, take 3 to 4 garlic tablets at the same time. Both lemon balm and garlic seem to stop herpes in its tracks. Lemon balm is most effective. It helps to become attuned to your body so you can detect the subtle signs before they become a problem."Replies
09/29/2009: Harmonious1 from Alamogordo, New Mexico replies: "I have been learning from some very informed people that Lemon Balm is much more potent if used fresh, since the volatile oils are scarce compared to other herbs. I take the fresh herb and pulse in blender with vodka. Then I put it in a jar and let it sit in a dark place, shaking it up every day or so. Just as easy and you get all the oils this way."
[YEA] 12/21/2009: Lisa from Ohio, USA: "Treatment for Herpes
I usually take a Lime and cut it in half and squeeze the juice onto the sore then rub the lime in the sore. It is painless and the sore is usually gone the next day. It works for me. I never take or buy the pills."
[YEA] 05/02/2007: Jayden from San Antonio, United States of America: "Alright guys and girls, listen up! I have had an outbreak for going on a year nothing would make it go away. I would cry everyday, So much because I am so young and attractive.. I am also not sexually active at all. I dont know how I got it to be honest but I do. I guess by kissing not sure. I was giving up on life but I decided that I am not going to let this destroy me. I would come up with my own cure. Well Im 90 percent sure I have since my outbreaks have subsided 99 percent, im not gonna lie i still have 4 of those nasty things on my face but they are fading. Keep in mind that I ony started my last expirement 2 weeks ago and they have started to just completely fade after going on year with an outbreak. Heres what you do and please try this and give me feedback and tell me how it works. By the way always remeber to pray to god. He will help you in the process. for those of you who dont believe in him find him! I promise you he will help you!
First: Buy yourself a bottle of lysine. It strenghtens your immune system. Buy the 1000 miligram one and take 3 a day for 2 weeks. (to many pills to take if you take the 500 miligrams one) Its only like 9 bucks.
Second: buy enchinacea i forgot how u spell it. Its like 3 bucks. Just google it. When you buy it take 3(1500mg) your first time at 12 pm. then take 1 pill after that every hour at (500 miligrams).So youll take 1 at 1pm, 1 at 2pm and so forth. Till your last hour of bed time. (always take one before u go to bed!) Do this method for 3 days and you will notice your herpes fading quickly.
third: get a bottle of calaclear lotion. It cost a dollar or 2 at the dollar store. Also buy a bottle of vitamin C at 500 mg and a bottle of peroxide. The peroxide is like 50 cents. Now what you do is take the calaclear lotion and squeeze it all into a cup. Then take 30 vitamin C pills ( thats 15000mg) and crush them in a zip lock bag. Crush them to a powder. Now you take the powdered vitamin c and pour it into the cup of the calaclear lotion and mix it all together and nothing else!, this recipe doesnt cause any redness! THen stir it up and put a foil with a rubberband around the top of the cup so no dust or dirt gets in but air does. then poke holes on top so the calaclear lotion can dry up. It should turn into a clear or yellowish color and act as some what of that candy like fruit roll up in a way.It should feel the way a contact lens feels. Then when it dries up you should be able to tear it to pieces after like 3 days. Now take a piece of it and get a foil and pour peroxide on it. Then take the piece of the CVC (calaclear with vitamin C mix)and put it in the peroxide for 30 seconds ,( now the piece should be the size of your sore. )Now take it out of the peroxide and put it on your sore. It should stick. The peroxide will break through the sores and then after 20 - 30 min the CVC should start melting into the sore. And you will notice redness and the bump and everything start to fade. You should never pop a sore. This method will elimate it. Then just peel off and repeat if necassary. Do this everyday if you want till there all gone. Trust me it works I hate herpes and Im sure you do to. Oh yeah and stay away from heat and stay in cool places. Also sleep in front of a fan facing your face and pray to god everynight before you go to bed you will notice everything will be better love you guys! And try this I didnt do all this typing for nothing lol j/k. But try my method it works. Sorry about the typos im very tired and sleepy well good night and god bless."
06/06/2009: Mary from Phoenix, Arizona: "I have read through all of these testimonials, but have not read anything to support the use of MMS for herpes. Can any of you give some feedback on that? I know a number of people that are plagued with this and want to know if anyone feels 'cured' by using MMS."Replies
06/06/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn. replies: "Hello Mary,
I have no personal experience with using MMS for shingles (Herpes Zoster), but shingles is caused by a virus and MMS is said to kill out bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi, and others.
My thinking is that if MMS can kill out the genetically engineered virus (HIV+) causing AIDS, it should find killing out an unaltered virus like Herpes Zoster. it would certainly be worth the trial since current thinking is that Herpes Zoster is the same virus that caused chicken pox in youth, just sitting there in your nerve endings all those years to create havoc with shingles. If MMS kills the virus, you shouldn't get shingles again unless you are re-exposed to it."
[WARNING!] 12/05/2009: Joe from La, Ca replies: "I would be careful of MMS. I am not a doctor but I have an extensive chemistry background. The problem I have with MMS is the CL atom. Yes chlorine. The science of ionization of the 2 oxygen molecules in MMS is the same as the chemistry of Hydrogen peroxide. So I would try peroxide therapy before MMS. Look at the results of peroxide and they should be the same as expected with MMS."
12/06/2009: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa replies: "JOE, I'd like to expand this discussion about Chlorine and its effects. In the paper industry I spent 40 years in many mills through out the South bleaching pulp from brown to various degrees of white.
First, chlorine is an element and MMS is primarily chlorine dioxide, a compound. They are not the same and do not react the same. Other chlorine compounds used to bleach pulp are Sodium Hypochlorite and Calcium hypochlorite ( Clorox ). These are chlorine compounds that also react differently. The temperature, time and pH of the reactions control how drastically they take place. Other chemicals used to bleach pulp are Hydrogen Peroxide and Oxygen, which do not contain chlorine but both do contain oxygen. They too react differently from each other and from chlorine compounds.
All these chemicals are talked about on this site everyday, and they are used in our body's to obtain a certain reaction. We can not control our body's temperature but can influence our pH. In bleaching pulp, the lower the pH the more drastic the reaction and I think you can say that about your body. Not all our body's have the same pH, thus each person will react differently. Our temperatures are about the same so that is not a factor.
After saying all this, I think I can draw the conclusion that chemical reactions in your body are milder if your body is in an alkaline pH range as Ted keeps harping on. Apple Cider Vinegar is malic acid and baking soda is alkaline. Combining the two gets you close to neutral. I personally think that getting your body out of the acid pH range is the most effective you can do to improve your health. It changes your reactions to various nutrients you consume and how the bacteria in your bowels function. And no, I did not do a double blind study before I said this.
One last comment, Cloudy ACV is malic acid with all the enzymes and original trace compounds . Clear super market ACV is distilled malic acid and is not the same. White Vinegar is acetic acid, a completely different animal.
Sorry if I sound preachy but that's the way you are when you get old."
12/06/2009: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa replies: "JOE, as the little boy told the little girl when she told him she was pregnant........... EXCUSE ME.
I did not address directly your post in my first reply.
Our Chelation Doctor tells me that the way your white corpuscles attack foreign invaders is to produce Hydrogen
So I think you gave the poster good advice. Do Hydrogen Peroxide before you do Chlorine Dioxide.
We do hydrogen peroxide intravenously to build up our immune system in-lieu of the mercury contained flu shots."
[NAY] 12/26/2008: Jane from Golden, Colorado: "I've just started taking Monolaurin for an HSV-2 OB. Haven't had one in over three years. Not sure if I'm using the right amount, but it doesn't seem to be slowing or curing the sores. Has anyone else had experience using Monolaurin?"
EC: OB = Outbreak
06/09/2012: Miserable_in_bama from Oneonta, Alabama, United States: "I've suffered from it horribly for 28 yrs. What works and is guaranteed to work is L-lysine. I take 1,000mg morning and night in powdered veg caps. I haven't had an outbreak in 2 yrs or since I started taking it diligently. If you do have an outbreak, take echinacea/goldenseal combo, red clover (helps with fever & inflammation), elderberry, acidolphilus, pau d' arco, burdock. I don't know about Ted and the snake oil things he's talking about. I know L-lysine is inexpensive, and easy. You cannot cure yourself of HSV, it's in your DNA, there's no way to remove it, sorry to tell you. I would get so sick, have horrid fevers, be in and out of consiousness, bad sick. Females have it worse with mucous membranes down there. I use tea tree oil on sores, it dries them out. Tea tree is absorbed into the layers of skin and helps keep it from getting infected, and dries them out fast. It's also cooling to me. You can also use witch hazel, it has antiseptic and pain killing properties. Most importantly, keep it clean and dry. I used aloe baby wipes. Something else I figured out after a few years of hell with this....... Ibuprofen can take away not only the fever, but that sick, puking feeling, and seems to help it heal faster. I found immediate relief, but for me ibuprofen is a no no these days, I have gastritis from taking it for many years. So eat when taking it, never take on an empty stomach."
04/29/2012: Anonymous from Bklyn, Ny, Usa: "I stopped using all those supplements I had mentioned previously in a post I submitted months ago that I had asked ted about.
I use: The herbs that belong to the "onion" family twice daily(look at my previous post about two people who are herpes free after using it and changing their diet). I boil and strain or u can drink as is.
Spirulina powder twice daily, sometimes a little more.
fresh lemon in water to remove toxins and raise ph
Lots of cinnamon drink I make every few days.
I use to buy pure echinacea root(dried) from health food store, but after severe breakout of hives I stopped using and is trying to get rid of dark spots. I drank too much. When I drank a little it never bothered me. I would still recommend, but do not drink too much. $7 an oz at health food store in bklyn.
I eat lots of flounder which can stop a break out really fast or prevent OB. I have proof of that. Read about it in book.
To prepare fish: do not season to cook. When finished add seasonings if u prefer. Loaded with lysine. The internet said catfish, cod and tilapia too, but I stick to flounder since it worked for someone. I use other fish if I can't afford flounder. Other times, I season it, but I make sure to haveit the way he recommended a few times a wk. Change your diet. I am not using any meds. My last major OB was christmas of 2011, prior to using all of the above and changing diet. Avoid processed foods. Read my other post. I use abreva daily on mouth and around so I do not get OB. Once in a while a little pimple around mouth, but it never gets bigger and never pop. U will think it is a regular pimple. That fish works! Will get retested to see where I am."
[YEA] 01/11/2012: Julien 2b from New York, Us : "Hi everyone! I was reading all your comment, and that make me want to talk about my experience...
I got herpes since 2 years ago. My wife gave it to me... She doesn't know that she had it... Last year after blood test, they found I had Genital Herpes 1 & 2...
I don't want to take the Dr medicine, I prefer to use plants. On the begining, I had Breakout maybe every 3 month, since last summer, it's almost every month. and now, I get another one after 2 weeks!!! F......
In general, after 6/8 days, everything is gone. That doesn't hitch, that doesn't hurt. What I use its Apple cider vinegar. It's better than nothing. Also I do echinacea Tincture, it's good for your immune system. I order Olive leaves, but they are dry, so I don't know if the property is the same...
Last week I found that the Sumac Extract was apparently use to cure herpes.
I give you that link but I can't found the original one...
Also I know I'm kind of Stress, so I'm sure that doesn't help! And since I'm in US, my alimentations not very healthy, but I try my best...
What I was thinking, it's to do a cure for blood cleansing. I mean, I do my own treatment for 3/4 month. I'm doing spiritual practice and healing, and I'm sure if you heal your body and your mind ( soul) on the same time, you can have some wonderful result. But it's a lot of work... But 4 month in our life, it's nothing, right?
On a begining I wanted to go to amazonia with a shaman for starting the process, but first I think I'll try to do by myself. After some research I found that we need to avoid :
· Oil, no fat
· Pork meat
· Milk products
· Meat except chicken and some fish
· Acid or sweet fruit (you can eat bananas and apples)
· Cold water or ice
· Strong sun
· Sexual activity
Also need to practice sport activity, yoga, meditation, etc etc.
Use plants as tea, salad, capsules, You can take bath, with herbs inside, like a big tea and you let yourself inside for awhile.... I use to take bath with 1 cup of ACV, 1 TSP of baking soda, 1 big tsb of epsom Salt and some florida water, its good for your skin and also for spiritual cleansing. Or, the best is to make the same mix in a big bowl and after your shower, you put on yourself the mix, and you let it dry, don't use the towel! It's good to do it the summer time! Don't need to wait too long!
If some of you tried the diet for 3 or 4 month, I would like to hear about the result. And when I'll finish mine, I'll let you know.
I would like to ask you a question about how come did we get it? Do you think things happen for a reason? I mean not just cause we [had sex] with no condom or thing like this but more like a lesson, something to learn... What do you think?
Thank you so much for read my post and sorry if my english is not perfect.
I wish you all good thing for this new year and lot of good energy healing for fight against that s......
12/01/2011: K from Los Angeles, Ca: "I have to write and thank everyone who has posted information to the this site. I was having Genital Herpes outbreaks more and more frequently until it was virtually one on top of the other. What a miserable way to live. This site saved my life, I swear.
Here are the things which have helped to me on my way to being GH OB-free.
- I had no idea that artificial sweeteners were such a trigger. I was consuming so MUCH in an effort ot be healthier, ha! so I eliminated those right away and it made a HUGE difference. after a certain period of time I tried to reintroduce non-aspartame sweetners and found that *only* natural based sweetners are safe for me (like stevia).
- I started taking l-lysine, 1000 mgs 2-3 times per day. (I think this also helped keep me from contracting this terrible cold and flu virus that has had everyone around me on their backs for a week plus at a time! )
- ACV, HP, and/or tea tree oil used topically when the outbreak starts helps dry it out quickly.
- I stopped using the acycolvir my doc prescribed when I felt an outbreak coming on because all these natural remedies work BETTER AND FASTER for me.
Seriously, I cannot thank everyone enough. I hope anyone else who comes in search of information here has as much positive experience as I have. You all are awesome and generous. Thank you thank you thank you!"
06/10/2011: Kelly from Stuart, Florida: "I have found that taking 500 mg of L-lysine, 1-3 doses of 45 mg of Oregano Oil, 500-1000 mg of Olive Leaf, 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar 3 times daily, 18 drops of ChlorOxygen twice a day, eating raw foods, and avoiding dairy, red meats, sugar, alcohol, etc has helped A LOT. Also, if you're having an outbreak, taking red marine algae for 60 days will clear you of outbreaks almost permanently. Eating any kind of seaweed such as dulse, kelp, etc or any kind of algae will definitely help. It's also necessary to do any cleanses such as Candida cleanse, Liver & Gallbladder cleanse, and a Parasite cleanse."Replies
11/11/2012: Qd from Ny replies: "You mention two things I was curious about red marine algae, do u know the latin name for the ones you suggest? Palmaria palmata is the most common dulse, but there are many. Which parasite test and cleanse do u recommend? how is candida related to herpes? Thx so much!!!"
11/11/2012: Molosser from Asuncion, Paraguay replies: "Please, READ MY POST: Buy "Ravensara essential oil" and "Tamanu oil". Make sure its RAVENSARA not Ravintsara!
Mix it 50/50. Apply it twice a day to the affected area. It does NOT hurt. After one day, the lesions look much fainter.
It takes 3 days to clear the lesions completely. After two more outbreaks, every other month, I did it the same way, my outbreaks stopped. This was 2 years ago.
Try it, don't waste your time with other stuff, because I tried it all. Yust do it!
P.S. Try to avoid re-infection by treating your partner with the same mixture."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 03/24/2011: Asheley from Smyrna, Ga, Usa: "So I was misdiagnosed and had a genital herpes outbreak from hsv-1, which is uncommon, for 3. 5 weeks. It was awful... I looked up all the wrong remedies on earth clinic bcuz some dumb doctor made a wrong assumption. Well finally saw a gyno and was tested by blood for 1 & 2 and a culture for just 2. Well those lab results weren't back until 6 days later... I didn't have that kind of time, I was about to lose it so I got on here and this is what I came up with. I had done everything to eradicate something bacterial, so I just assumed I had herpes (viral) and got to work. Turns out I had hsv-1, which like 70-90% of adults have, but it affected me differently.
These things did not fully fix the outbreak, I think because it had gone on too long, but after 48 hours, I was 50-60% better, the first relief I had in 3. 5 weeks... I was thrilled. After the doctor called, I did get acyclovir, which has finished the job. I don't plan to have to use it again, though.
So I was doing a lot of stuff, but what really made the difference was:
1 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil 3x a day - antiviral
1500mg lysine 3x a day - higher ratio of lysine to arginine prevents virus from replicating.. I used Super Lysine , has some echinacea and garlic as well
1000mg vitamin c 3x a day
1500mg olive leaf extract mixed in water 3x a day
These things 3 times a day and you will be in business. I also put coconut oil on my business after using the bathroom. I am a big believer in having a double or triple threat approach so I can't say with certainty which thing mattered most, but I will say this... After a day, I could tell a HUGE difference. I am almost out of the woods finally!!! This stuff works, and I imagine that if you caught it earlier, would completely knock it out. So to all who are in misery, I feel ya and keep your head up! So quit reading and go to the vitamin store!"
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 05/19/2010: Kb from Canberra, Act, Australia: "Herpes Type 2 - BHT, ACV, Intravenous Vit C (IVC)
Tried the ACV - works with shingles also. Drank it before bed and in morning.
Symptoms (itchyness, pain)abated after applying it topically to sores. Stings on open ones but the pain stops after a moment. I usually get IVC, 30 grams every two weeks as I have continous shingles as well as Herpes( on lower back). This boosts immune system and cures the sores within two days.(I sometimes cant go so the ACV is good to have around.)
I take multiple supplements( too many to list), lysine, zinc, a herbal antiviral mixture and daily 2x, Hydrogen peroxide, food grade, 3% diluted to 25%, about 12 drops.
There is multiple reports on the web on the effectiveness of BHT for Herpes 2. I cannot get it in Australia, so have not tried it yet. Apparently, it dissolves the lipid coat of the virus , that hides it from the Destroyer cells of your body.Then , it can be attacked and killed.
Dirk Pearson says in his book that he has taken it since the 70's and has no attacks, except when he once stopped using it. His partner has never had a attack.
BHT in VERY large doses, is bad for the liver, but the usual dose is too small to do any harm. (DP has not had any toxicity problems long term). It is to be avoided if you have liver problems.)
I hope someone tries this, I cant wait to go to USA and get some!! Hope you all get better :)
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 10/06/2009: Crystalcity from Miami, Florida: "Where to start...I was infected with genital Herpes the first time I had sexual intercourse...which I consider more of a blessing than a misfortune. I've never known sex any other way. I feel that because I've been infected since my teenage years I've had the opportunity to grow with my herpes. First thing is that you have to have open communication with your Herpes such as "Okay big H, we're in this together for the long haul...so stop acting a fool on my skin!" This is a good first step to being outbreak free. The second most important thing is to tell people about it (GASP!) your real friends will remain your real friends and offer you support and advice. Plus, you will be the one they turn to if it ever happens to them (imagine if we all had someone to turn to when it happened to us!) I think that guilt and shame only worsen outbreaks. The third and most easy to obtain treatment of herpes is deep breathing. The second I begin to feel the tingling, I meditate and deeply and breathe oxygen to my groin area. It will increase blood flow to the area and stop itching and tingling at once. I also have used olive leaf extract in conjunction with red marine algae with wonderful results. Note: i run marathons and make it my running mantra to deliver oxygen to my groin region and the base of my spine. I never have outbreaks during training season and occasionally get them in winter when I've been indulging over the holidays."Replies

[YEA] 05/21/2009: Maris from Paris, Ile de France: "i use a phototherapie-stick for labial herpes, works really well!
for genital herpes, though, it is not strong enough, but contributes to the healing.
i got rid of my last OB really quickly thanks to a combination of remedies found on this wonderful website :
i put on a cotton swabbed with ACV for a few hours, then 4 min of photo-therapie.
afterwords i applied a mixture of teatree-oil & gelee royale before going to bed.
the next day the herpes was gone, there was only a red spot, on which i applied again teatree-oil & gelee royale.
now i'm taking lecithin and ACV (2 TS in a glass of water, over the day), stayed OB-free when i got my period and throughout a bad cold.
thanks to everyone!!!"
