[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.
