[YEA]  ACV for Herpes (genital)

I'm a believer! I have suffered from herpes for over 15 years now and I think I am one of the lucky ones. My outbreaks are few and far between but when they come on, the come on strong. I was on Valtrex for a while but my outbreaks are so infrequent I did not see the point. Also, Valtrex did not stop outbreaks and when I had to double up during an outbreak, I felt ill to my stomach and did not see the length of outbreak get any shorter. So, I quit. I have tried several things since then (Zorivex, tea tree oil). I have had 2 outbreaks in the past 18 months. I came here yesterday (this is the second outbreak) to look for some options.The tea tree seemed to help but I wanted something to shorten the duration. Started applying ACV last night via cotton swab, slept with a cotton swab on infected area last night. OH MY GOSH! I can tell it is almost gone. Soreness is almost completely gone from lesion and the swollen lymph node is noticeably less sore. I will continue to use for another few days but, at this rate, I am looking at a recovery time of 2 maybe 3 days as opposed to 7 maybe 10 days. I also plan to try Ted's solution. I do believe there is a cure for this and I am tired of being at the mercy of this virus. Thank you to Earth Clinic and all who contribute. Thanks to this site, I see light in the darkness that is herpes.

[YEA]  I break out in hives from food allergies. The last rash of hives was very bad and would stop itching so I rub AVC on it and it burned but the itching stopped and the rash wash gone in about a week.

I also have herpes so I though I would try it on a sore and again the itch disappeared and the sore healed in two days. Next I am going to try drinking it and hopefully it will help prevent the allergies and outbreaks. I applied the AVC twice a day with a cotton ball.

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with Genital Herpes last year and all I can say that is destroying me, little by little. I was happy to have found your site, you were a Godsend! This month has been a horrible month, lots of stress in my life, so you all know what that means, I've had outbreak after outbreak! I was desperate, since I hate taking drugs I decided to try Apple Cider Vinegar and for the most part it worked right away. No inching or tingling, all gone. But nothing is perfect. I used it on a breakout on my left butt cheek (it was pretty bad) and again it worked right away, but the skin in that area has now become raw hamburger meat, it's so tender, I can hardly sit down! Could it be that I applied it incorrectly? Please can someone help me out??!!! I love the instant results that I get from using ACV, but the aftermath has been a bitch!!!!!!

yeah, try diluting it. vinegar is very acidic, and applied to skin directly and undiluted can cause irritant reactions :)

[YEA]  I have had genital herpes for quite some time but have had few problems pop up over the years. But when they do, it's devastating. I've tried all kinds of pharmaceutical ointments and they work eventually after a period of days have gone by. The other day I had a "breakout of one". And if you have this problem ONE is all you need to screw up the next week to 10 days. I had been reading about apple cider vinegar and decided to put it on me but a bandaid was out of the question for me and the area concerned. So I did this. Before bed I soaked the first 4 inches of an ace bandage wrap in apple cider vinegar...both sides until it was saturated. I then wrapped this around my unit on the problem area, continuously wrapping until the wrap was finished. It was only about 12 inches long. I then put a piece of tape over the wrap to hold it in place and let the ACV do its work and went to bed. Holy crap! The next day the swelling was completely gone and the blister was done. With the exception of me knowing where the blister was you can't even tell I've had anything. Just because I'm overly cautious I'm gonna do it again tonight.

Women, I would suggest soaking a cotton ball down and using a bandaid that can peel off easily...maybe children's bandaids? Regardless, do it and let it work overnight while you sleep. ACV won't bother your skin at all. Hope this helps at least one person.

[YEA]  Apple Cider Vinegar. I am a former wrestler who contracted herpes from wrestling mats. Doctors gave me the wrong diagnoses so I ended up having it on the side of my face for about three weeks. I finally researched the symptoms for myself and once I figured out it was herpes I started searching for natural cures. I heard alot on apple cider vinegar so I gave it a try. From my experience it is not a fix it right away cure, but it does definitely speed things up. Alot of it depends on how soon you start using it. If I notice something forming in the morning, but don't recognize it as herpes or don't have the means to start treating it till the end of the day or the next morning then it usually takes about 4-5 days to clear it up. If I notice it first thing in the morning, recognize it and start treating it immediately, then it will be cleared up usually within two days.

[YEA]  i tried the apple cider vinegar cure i take (drink) 2 to 3 shots a day, and also rub it on my privates when I take baths every day. Now its been 2 months and no symptoms sores or anything i still take the shots and rub down in it in the shower but if that's what it takes to never have another outbreak that's Ok with me it can be a little strong so if its to much just add a little water and hopefully you too can feel relief.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda   1  0   

Posted by Olwen (Snowy Mountains, Nsw, Australia) on 05/21/2013

[YEA]  I've been alkalizing with ACV and baking soda for at least 5 months and in that time have had outbreaks of herpes almost reduced to zero (I think just one outbreak in the whole time). Before that I was having outbreaks on the least exertion every few weeks. Twice a day I take 2 dessertspoons of ACV in water with baking soda to neutralize as per Ted's instructions.

So, you mix the ACV and BS together and drink it? How much BS do you put in the ACV?

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have had undiagnosed Genital Herpes for almost 4 years now. It should be diagnosed, but the "Doctor" said I wasn't affected. I didn't have insurance was the real problem. I never really cared for perscription/non-perscription drugs anyways. I usually always sought out a more natural way if possible. For the most part I was able to keep the sores under control, however, recently the sores got worse and I was in need of a cure! Not a temporary fix! For the most part I have a great understanding of how I could cure all of my aliments, and be illness free, BUT it was all out of reach for me at the time financially.

So, I started doing more and more research until I finally fell upon this website. I am aware of other websites similiar to this one, such as but you had to pay for its services. I was hoping I could find something inexpensive and just as powerful and I did! I started using Apple Cider Vineger (____) and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. What I did was heat up 2 cups of purified water on the stove-top and removed it before it could boil. Then I added 2 Tbsp of ACV. I then took some cotton balls and dabbed this mixture on affected areas. I let it air dry and then applied Coco Oil to the same areas. I allowed the Coco Oil to be absorbed into my skin before coming in contact with clothing. After just 3 days of this my sores had practically disappeared! I hope this helps you as well! Please keep in good faith, you are not alone! Together, we can heal! ;)

Apple Cider Vinegar, L-Lysine   1  0   

Posted by Melissa J. (Thomasville, Georgia) on 11/29/2007

[YEA]  Hello My name is Melissa J. I am from the south georgia area. I have had herpes type I since i was a kid and got herpes type II in 1985. Back then there was not much help even the doctors were not effective in treatment. I was going to take what they prescribed i started reading about the drug and i didn't like what the side effects were. So i set out in what would help me. This is what i use as a combination it may not work for you its a matter of trying something until you find what works for you. I highly recommend L-lysine it also works in case you have you HVW that is herpes viral warts PPV i mean. So my recommendation is L-lysine, B-12, apple cider vinegar, vitamin E, stay away from artificial sweetners, reduce stress and get enough sleep. Also i use mind over matter if i feel that i am getting any kind of outbreak i will mentally make it go away and it does. However this method takes practice. The main thing is to not focus on that you have herpes. I don't mind and herpes doesnt matter. I had to tell myself that over and over again. When i stopped focusing on what i had i became much better. Its not easy dealing with it and when you meet someone new you know the risk if you tell them they walk away but i would tell them hey you might have something worse than me. How do you tell someone you have it just be honest if they walk away oh well someone will understand one day just dont give up hope ever of finding the right one....Good luck

Thank you so much for the encouragement. I'm suffering from my first outbreak, and the past few days have been so stressful. The physcial aspect of it isn't so bad, but the emotional has been really hard for me. What you said helped more than any pill or remedy I could take.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have been using ACV and Tea tree oil, (every time a have a recurrent of Genital Herpes), for more than 4 years, and I am happy to say is wonderful. I have recurrents, sometimes, when I have my immune system low, that happens when I get a cold in winter time. Every time I have a itchy bum, I simply pass a drop of Tea Tree Oil, and drink some ACV or put it on top and that's it. Wonderfull tip of EC, and I am so grateful. Thank you so much.

Avoid Meat Injected With Msg   0  0

[SIDE EFFECTS]  My friend is a nurse and she said that people with the herpes virus should not eat chicken.

Posted by Lsiggy

[SIDE EFFECTS]   "I have learned this fact thru trial and error. They inject MSG into the chicken for tenderness, etc... And it is made with glutamate, a nerve stimulator. Hence it stimulates and over activates your nerves and herpes. For me, it happens almost right away. If I eat non- injected, organic or kosher chicken, this does not happen. The same goes with turkey. I have to buy the fresh turkey that is not injected. Almost all frozen turkey is injected with a MSG or yeast extract broth.

Why on earth are chicken injected with MSG? I try to avoid it like the plague, not only because I am allergic as well but because it is bad for your health. I have bought a book about MSG which I will read soon. A while ago, while on a trip we didn't have time to stop at restaurants for lunch and there are not a lot in the countryside here so we started buying some bites to eat in the supermarket, kind of crisps and so. After a while I noticed that I had a big allergic reaction everyday at the end of the afternoon and realized that it must have been the MSG because other than that I don't see what it could have been. But inject it in chicken?... It seems to be everywhere and it is even sprayed on fruit. I check everything we buy for MSG but of course only if it comes on the label, other than that I can't do anything. I am not sure but I think that even supplements can have MSG.

Hey, I've been suffering from GH for 4 yrs. After first being diagnosed my doctor prescribed a topical cream to treat my legions which worked well with the outbreaks, but I had to discontinue because I ran out and was too embarrassed to buy some more at the pharmacy luckily my mom is a doctor and I would just take some from her office (embarassed) upon reading more about the topical cream I realized that the virus can develop immunity to it. So I discontinued and tried to find natural remedies. I have just been stacking up on vitamins and making sure that I kept the area clean. I was using hand sanitizers for a while, it helped a little but then I realized my the area of my genitals became discoloured and damaged due to overuse. At that point I was stressing out and what have you, and ive been suffering from a constant mild breakout ever since. I couldnt remember the last time I was completely break out free.

A couple weeks ago I stumbled on this site and I saw that hydrogen peroxide 3% helped. So I tried that for a little, it helped but not 100%. Then I Stumbled across eating the raw aloe vera leaf and drinking ACV. I frist started eating a tsp of the aloe vera pulp about two weeks ago and within TWO DAYS I strted seeing a significant difference. So I added the ACV regiment; 2 tsp of ACV with 8oz of distilled water once a day. Ive beeing drinking the ACV for three days and the outbreak was COMPLETELY GONE. I felt a HUGE weight off my shoulders this was the first time in a while since ive been aboutbreak free for more than a week. Ive been outbreak free for two weeks strt. Bare in mind I havent made any drastic change to my diet. Ive cut out certain foods like peanuts and sugary drinks. But nothing too drastic becasue I still drink alcohol occasionally etc. But ive been outbreak free after taking the Aleo vera and ACV. Nothing but positve results so far and im hoping it stays that way. THERE IS HOPE!!! This site has helped me sooo much and im so grateful!

Bach Flower Remedies   8  0

[YEA]  re: bach flowers for herpes outbreaks -- it's my personal belief that the reason the flower remedy works for the herpes outbreaks is more because the preservative used with the drops is brandy which is alcohol...i have treated many patients and they have all have found relief with diff. types of bacterial otc therefore a strong antibacterial lotion with alcohol will do the same work...the flower essence drops work thru the psychological channels for they are excellent calming and relaxing tools,,,which is good to reduce the outbreaks of herpes...
