Bach Flower Remedies for Genital Herpes
Commercially available, the all-natural Bach Flower Remedies are flower extracts (those with the greatest potency are provided by Healing Herbs of Hereford, England). When used to heal cold sores and herpes, you should take the remedies both internally and externally. Evidently, the most potent flower remedies to heal herpes are holly, walnut, and crab apple; however, any one of the these tinctures will work by itself. You can also take the three together in a formula.
[YEA] 03/15/2006: Els from Barcelona, Spain: "After I was diagnosed with HG last week, and being pregnant as well, I started looking for natural solutions right away. The one I liked while looking at this site was the one with the Flower remedies. I went straight to the store, got the essences (holly and walnut) and within a day the infection got less; within 3 days it was gone. No more agony (for now), and I'm a happy woman! Thanks."Replies
12/24/2009: Skyy from Las Vegas, Nv replies: "which store can I find this holly and walnut from? is it an oil or an actual flower?"
EC: Bach flower remedies are tinctures made from the flowers. More info here: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/flowers.html
12/25/2011: Sam from New York replies: "I was wondering if anyone could provide some follow up to these earlier testimonials? They sounded very promising."
[YEA] Clara from Philadelphia, PA: "The past three years, I have had an outbreak of genital herpes outbreak every few months. I altered my diet, stayed out of the sun, stopped drinking alcohol... all the things you are supposed to do. Also took lysine daily. I then went on medication. The meds helped the severity of the outbreaks, but still did not stop the bi monthly outbreak cycle. In desperation, I looked on the internet and saw Earth Clinic's suggestion for flower remedies as a potential cure. I was skeptical, but willing to try... I located the brand of flower remedy you recommended at a holistic pharmacy and started applying it (holly and walnut) in diluted form to the outbreak area. I also took it internally 4x a day. That was a few months ago and I have not had another outbreak! I still continue to take the remedy internally a few times a day. The minute I feel that tingling, warning sensation, I put a few drops on the area a few times a day and nothing manifests. Wow. Such relief!! Can't tell you how grateful I am. Thank you Thank you Thank you!"Replies
11/19/2012: Help-please!!! from Memphis, Tn replies: "How do you mix or dilute the holly and walnut? Can u buy it locally somewhere?"
12/02/2012: Hopeful from Brooklyn, NY replies: "http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/flowers.html see what they say about diluting"
[YEA] 07/10/2008: Eduardo Gomez from Reese, MI: "Hey everybody! I learned of a very strange but very effective treatment for outbreaks at a Herpes Awareness Seminar in Illinois last year. It hasn't gotten much attention as it has only come to being in the last year or so. Anyway, all you have to do is soak a little bit of BBQ sauce on the area of the outbreak. The acids from the sauce seep into your skin and neutralize the problems. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and you will feel a slight 'tingle' effect. After that, clean the area off with water and then witch hazel. This really works and came as a huge relief to me! (Just one more thing, this only works when there is an outbreak present.) Glad to help!"
09/20/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, USA: "There was what I consider a very important and instructive posting from Karin from Germany regarding this issue that was posted in this forum back on March 3, 2012.
Karin`s strategy is to hit those genital herpes outbreaks hard with a 500mg dose of BHT Twice a day for 3 days at the first indications of an outbreak and then to drop that dosage to one 250mg of BHT per day with water on an empty stomach. This is what I consider a very instructive posting. Here is what Karin had to say:
03/02/2012: Paul from Otterndorf, Germany replies: "Hello Oscar, my name is Karin. I am the wife of Paul from Germany / Otterndorf. After my husband has done such a great experience with BHT, I wanted to try it. I have genital herpes for about 30 years, the last 5 years I had an outbreak every two weeks, that was really cruel. I notice it every time, just before it breaks, I feel a burning sensation in the legs and partly in the face.
When it started again last week, I took the first 3 days of BHT 500mg twice daily on an empty stomach. I usually do not believe in miracles, but for me is probably a miracle happened - the herpes outbreak has not occurred. Additionally stops I feel as good as never before.
I will now continue with BHT-treatment with preventive 1x daily 250mg. Thanks again for your excellent work. All love from Germany, Karin"
Now Karin was a long time sufferer of this infection. Over 30 years. Her intuition as to how best to use the BHT for that infection is very impressive to me....Oscar"
[SIDE EFFECTS] 06/27/2012: Alia from Birmingham, Uk: "Oscar, I know BHT has worked for some people with the herpes virus, but, is it possible to have a reaction to this. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and just now, as soon as I took the pill I started itching & then appeared a bump on the site at the base of my spine. Top of my buttocks area... I only take one pill at bedtime. I suffer quite badly with this virus, every month... Any suggestions?"Replies
06/28/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Alia from Birmingham UK, Let me see if I can help you. Did this bump you describe EVER occur PRIOR to trying the BHT ? Is it like a big pimple, or more like a boil ? Or something else ? Some people have experienced different skin reactions with the use of BHT. For now, cut back on the BHT to one capsule every other day. There is no big hurry with this treatment. We need to find a dosage you are OK with. Also these capsules can be opened up and you can tap out half the capsule and try half a capsule per day. And because you are having adverse effects please do join the BHT cures group here: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/BHTcures/
Look, this BHT really does seem to work remarkably well as a treatment for hepatitis C. For some people it takes getting used to. If needs be you can simply stop taking it if this problem does not go away or gets worse and start again with the BHT treatment in a week or two if this condition goes away. Also a menmber of this forum did report breaking out with pimples. He said he always broke out with pimples when detoxing. He also said: these pimples went away and his skin was like that of a baby`s, much improved, with the BHT treatments.
So for now, lower the dosage of BHT you are now taking and let`s see what happens....Oscar"
06/30/2012: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Alia, I do suggest you join the BHT CURES group. That way you can stay in contact with me and other members using the BHT treatment. To do so go here: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/BHTcures/
For most people any problems with the BHT treatment tend to go away and soon [ within a few weeks ]. For some the BHT takes getting used to. For now: lower the dosage of BHT to allow your body to adjust to this BHT and let`s take it from there. Most people have NO problem with the BHT treatment. Some do.
Also, and impotantly: eating a heathy low fat diet is important. The same is very much true for doing an adequate amount exercise....Oscar"
[QUESTION] 10/30/2009: Bella from Los Angeles, Ca: "herpes and BHT
If anyone can tell me where to look to buy BHT? I would love to know. I don't want to give my credit card info. to some anon.company off the internet from a google search. I've read there are quite a few scams out there: especially with
companies knowing that we can't normally buy BHT in stores any longer. At least not in Los Angeles.
Bella - firstname.lastname@example.org"
[YEA] 05/05/2009: Michele C from Waterbury, CT: "I read here about taking BHT for genital herpes. I tried it and it worked great. I had been managing it for years with just L-Lysine, 500 mg, but increased to 3,000 for the occasional outbreak. But it wasn't working any more. In desperation, I checked out your site for a new remedy and found the BHT. I simply take one 250 mg. capsule per day, every day, and it started to work immediately! It has be two weeks and I have not had an outbreak. I can highly recommend this remedy. I am looking forward to good health for the future. Thank you so much for all that you do.
[WARNING!] 06/04/2009: Christian from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina replies: "WARNING! I TRIED BHT. IT GAVE ME THE MOST SEVERE HEADACHES OF MY LIFE. I COULD NOT GET OUT OF BED FOR THE WHOLE NEXT DAY. TRIED IT TWICE WITH THE EXACT SAME RESULTS."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 11/04/2012: Michele from Waterbury, Connecticut replies: "This is an update from Michele in Waterbury. After taking BHT daily for three years, which was successfully managing my Genital Herpes outbreaks, I started having digestive problems. Constant gas, discomfort, bloating, intolerence of wheat and hemorrhoids. I read on this site that if you have hemorrhoids, you have a yeast infection in your gut. I am wondering if the daily dosing of BHT caused an im-balance in my gut and that now I have an overpopulation of yeast in my gut. I had to stop the BHT, and am treating the gut yeast infection with raw garlic and pre-biotics. I feel much better, but I can see that it will take some time to get back to normal. If I stop the raw garlic, the symptoms return. Since BHT is a preservative that kills bacteria, I think it killed off the good bacteria in my gut. Anyone else having gut problems?
I am treating the Genital Herpes with a prescription anti-viral. Just wanted to let people knonw, that if you are treating GH with BHT, and experiencing digestive problems, it may just be the BHT."
[YEA] 04/26/2007: Dana from Brooklyn, New York: "This worked the very first time out for me so maybe it will give someone else relief too. FYI....This will be a little long because genital herpes has ruled my life for so long so I've got a lot to tell. First I'll tell you what didn't work, Bach flower therapy, I tried it for six months, no, Choraphor was good when the lesions are active but for me, I experience a lot of discomfort before the actual outbreak so I hated waiting for a lesion to weep before doing anything about it. Then the pain applying to the lesion was too much in addtion to the price. Red Marine Algae, no, spirulina, no Lysine rich diet, no..monolaurin and lysine supplements, I think they are good in reducing the severity of colds and flu but not reducing the severity of genital herpes. I haven't had sugar in about a year, I don't wear binding clothes, I stopped chewing gum with aspartame....Everything I've used or tried, didn't seem to work. I was still getting outbreaks bi-monthly. (I'm not sure why, it may have to do with hormonal changes, I always get one right before my period and now I'm catching on, when I'm ovulating). As you can see, has been a quest. The only thing I didn't try was BHT. I had heard horror stories about it. However, I was so frustrated I finally purchased it and was only on my second day of taking it AND getting over a very bad outbreak of three lesions, when I felt another one was on its way. The pain in my leg was so great I knew it was going to be a doozy too. I immediately took 700 mgs of BHT as soon as I got home that day and took 700 mgs more in the morning and the evening for 2 days straight. Once I felt the lesion raising up, I also applied it topically. I broke open about 6 capsules of it and melted it in olive oil. I used a cotton ball to swab it on down there. What I liked about it was that it wasn't painful like Choraphor. I applied it topically for 2 days as well. After day 2 into day 3, all I had was the tiniest bump which I swabbed again. This is the fourth day, and while I still feel 'remnants' of the pain there are no active lesions at all. I know this doesn't mean I'm not contagious but at least I'm not suffering from the pain and discomfort. I'm going to buy the powdered version so that I won't have use my capsules again. Meanwhile, I read up on BHT and found that St. John's Wort can be used in conjunction with it to make it more effective. Since I've had outbreaks twice a month for almost 20 years I need all the help I can get. For now this is the regimin: 350 mg of BHT, one a day St John's Wort, and two to three shots of apple cider vinegar a day. I'm also taking Stress B Complex, Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamin and Calcium. I still have lysine and monolaurin left but I don't know if I'll continue taking it since it didn't help too much before. I just may take the minimum required of both lysine and monolaurin because as I said before it seemed to reduce the severity of colds and flu. For outbreaks, I'll up the dosage to 700 mg of BHT twice daily, and swabbed the infected areas with it melted in olive oil. Thanks to the anonymous person that posted it here, it really worked this time around, I'll keep you all posted. Maybe I'll have even more good news in a few months."Replies
03/29/2009: Elisha from Austin, Texas replies: "I have had herpes for several years and finally found an ointment that really helps with itching and heals lesions in a couple of days. It's call Lemon Balm for Wise Ways. I apply it with a q-tip to each lesion or with a cotton ball and the itching will automatically go away and stops the pain. I also use Olive Leaf Extract in capusle form and found this to work very well and L-lysine capsules as well. I am now going to try to use the APV directly and internally. "
[YEA] Anonymous from Philadelphia, PA: "BHT dissolved in olive oil is the greatest topical treatment I have ever tried. For every 5ml of oil use 5-350mg capsules or 1750mg of BHT powder. You must heat the oil but not hot enough to fry anything. Use a dropper to apply and do not contaminate the oil. Before I used peroxide and it would work but it turned my finger tips white and it left scars. There is absolutely no scarring using BHT and Olive oil and it even helps fade old HSV scars. I use it daily even when I'm not having an outbreak and so far so good. Hasn't been long enough to claim a reduction if outbreaks but the duration is like 2 days and you can't even tell you had an OB. AND it kills any pain from the ulcer. Try it."
[YEA] Jenny : "I recently paid $10 for two pages of information from this web site: www.finallyfree.us. Basically, the information said you can cure HSV (become antibody negative) using BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) for a year or two at a dose of @50 mg to 1,000 mg (I am going by memory - you'll need to do research yourself). There is a book called "Wipe Out Herpes With BHT" by John A. Mann and Steven Wm. Fowkes. copyright 1983. which is where this information is sourced from. He said that the best source for BHT is www.1to1vitamins.com
For more info go to:
There, I just saved you ten bucks! Hope this helps."
EC: BHT is butylated hydroxytoluene, phenolic compounds that are often added to foods to preserve fats. BHT may have antiviral and anti microbial activities. Studies are underway concerning the use of BHT in the treatment of herpes simplex and AIDS.
05/07/2011: Ez from Phila, Pa replies: "Has any one ever tried BHT dissolved in DMSO? would this be safe because I know dmso makes absobstion of chemicals very effective. I was thinking about placing this application on the lower spine where the herp likes to hide
What do you think??"
08/10/2011: Wuwu from Sf, Ca replies: "I appreciate anyone who saves people money. Will try sometime. Thanks so much!"
12/04/2011: Careful from Madrid, Spain replies: "I have read horrible things about dmso; maybe you'd better try another of the many remedies available. I am now taking lysine, and will start Evening Primrose Oil, for the hormonal imbalance which I read causes outbreaks around your period.
Very good luck"
[YEA] 11/13/2007: Michael from Des Moines, Iowa: "Bitter Melon for Herpes! I had started to have regular outbreaks of genital herpes and I scrambled everywhere for a cure. I found that Bitter Melon is used for Acyclovir resistent herpes so I figured if it works for Acyclovir resistent herpes it must work wonders for the regular herpes. I take it as directed and I have not had any outbreaks since then. When I first started taking it my outbreaks became less and less and less bothersome until I have had no outbreaks. I had an outbreak recently because I stoped taking the Bitter Melon but it was only for two days and I got right back on the Bitter melon and I'm all good now! I thank God for all His herbs He provided for us!!! I prefer the Solaray brand which is the most effective for me. It's hard to find in stores so you're better off buying it from Amazon.com which makes it a bit pricey but TRUST me it's worth it. 'I hope this will help many of you and God bless!"Replies
[YEA] 07/26/2010: Dmember from Vancouver, Bc, Canada replies: "Bitter Melon for genital herpes. I used get the outbreaks every month for many years. One would finish and then a within a week it would be back. I went a few years like this. I then started working near a Chinese food court and quite often would eat bitter melon there. Thinking back that's about the same time my outbreaks started to decrease and came only 2 or 3 times a year. After getting on the net and doing some research about herpes I stumbled upon bitter melon as a weapon against herpes. Put 2 and 2 together. Must be something to it and I would say it's worth it to add it to your list of healthy "foods with benefits" list. Last but not least it's not called bitter melon for nothing. An acquired taste and can be bought in tea form too."
08/18/2011: Crystal from North Hollywood, California, Us replies: "Mountain rose herbs has the actual bitter melon, just google the name and it will pop up. I get all my stuff there."
[YEA] 03/13/2007: Seema from Chicago, Il: "Was just reading up on this site on natural cures for Herpes 2 with a cup of black tea in my hand. Thought, "Gee, I can try this out right now", took the warm tea bag, broke it open, and applied the black leaves on the sores (really packed 'em in good, as I am a woman) and continued to read for another half hour. Upon gathering up the leaves and washing them away, ahhhhhhh, relief! The most I have felt in more than a week! I cannot believe that my infection decided to take a turn for the better just as I applied those leaves. There must be a connection! Goodby Valtrex!! It has made me very forgetful and detached. Have not been getting my work done. Will update."
[YEA] 02/25/2007: Lucy from NY: "Black Tea is a remedy to drink against hsv, also, placing a tea tea bag on the sores, truly desperate do both (the tea bag should be luke warm for placing on sore leave for a good bit & do time & again throughout the day-also, place tea or tea bag in a plastic in freezer and do the treatment-works! It is an antioxidant naturally & the Tannin acid makes it unbearable for the virus! Hope this helps anyone-I know that this ailment is a sentence in hell for me for the past 14 years! I would not wish it upon my worse enemy trust me."
