I was diagnosed with genital herpes in 1999. It was a shock to my system, in more ways than one. The nasty bleeding scabs, the weeping sores, the pain - and the horrible sensation on the thighs, like cats clawing at wet skin. (That's just my description.) I heard about coconut oil a year ago and decided to try it. I was guided to take it this way: A tablespoonful in a glass of clear warm water, mix it up, melt it, and drink it. I took it three times a day at regular intervals. I came off my medication, Ayclovir, and waited for the usual attack. (This was after a few months of taking the oil.) But nothing happened. In order to stimulate an attack, to force it, I ate my old 'enemies' - peanuts and bananas, in great quantities, both guaranteed to cause a herpes outbreak. But nothing happened. I have been clear of the genital herpes now for at least six months, perhaps more, and the only thing I want now is to have a blood test to be absolutely sure the infection has gone. Of course doctors will say that the virus is incurable, but something has happened here, something profound and unusual. I have an inner certainty that the virus has been battered about by the oil, to such an extent it has no power left. Of course, I may be wrong. But there is no sign of it.

I have a question of Peter in New Zealand who said in July 2007 he believes he has been cured of herpes and was going to take a blood test. Peter: did you take the blood test and what were the results? Am interested in knowing as I am considering ingesting vco for the same reason. Thanks.

I loved this post and I am taking the coconut oil too. It tastes awful (I always hated coconut! ) and I want to report the same thing in a few months.

Worked Temporarily
I took 3 tablespoons a day of coconut oil for over a month - since I hate coconut, I quit.

I saw great results when I applied coconut oil on the lesions - they would heal quickly, in less than 3 days. Sadly it didn't last long and by my third outbreak, the coconut oil had no effect on the lesions.

I eat coconut oil every day and gag each time I swallow it because it's hard to swallow oil but you can use it in your cooking, put it in a smoothy.... There are so many other ways to ingest it other than eating it straight from the spoon. Coconut oil has so many other healing properties.... Helps with metabolism, insulin, digestion... I use it on my skin and in my hair. You have to make sure you by the unrefined pure organic virgin coconut oil otherwise it won't work. :)

Dear Earth Clinic, I thought in sharing some information that has helped me. Organic extra virgin Coconut oil which contains 50-55% of luric acid that actually destroys the chemical composition of any virus including AIDS, in fact in the Philippines are curing it with this remedy. Now I can work out again with out feeling my body weak and my out breaks have been reduced 80%. about 1 spoonful a day Thank you for your great forum. Regards.

Coconut Oil and MMS  

5 star (1) 

Posted by Carl (Philadelphia, PA) on 09/07/2008

I have also had the same experience with MMS. I felt the tingling sensation but I got no actual outbreaks/sores. MMS works very well to destroy bacteria, fungus, parasites, viruses etc. The issue with MMS is that it is fighting the fight against Herpes alone, hence the tingling sensations. MMS cannot to its best ability fully destroy the Herpes virus when it is protected by it lipid coat (Fat coating). Monolaurin (coconut oil) is a supplement that dissolves away and destroys the lipid coating on the Herpes Virus, leaving it naked and exposed to our immune system. Monolaurin is not a drug, therefore, the Herpes Virus does build immunity to it like it does with Valtrex. Many people who use Valtrex claim it stops working for them after 2 years. The reason for this is because the Herpes virus builds an immunity to it, making the virus stronger, smarter and harder to kill. I would not be surprised if the drug companies introduced a new & stronger drug that claims to be much stronger than Valtrex.

By using Monolaurin, which dissolves Herpes's lipid coating and also using MMS, which oxidizes and kills the virus along with a healthy diet you will be able to stop all future outbreaks. But please keep in mind that you must eat well and clean your system out. Nobody can claim that there is a cure for Herpes, but I believe the cure for herpes is right in front of us. If everyone in the U.S. with HSV donated $2 (for example) we would have enough money to hire our own researchers, doctors or even help a comapny focusing on this cure see their passion to the end.

Thanks for the information. I had been consuming coconut oil to thwart outbreaks then decided to try mms for other reasons. In researching mms, I learned some have had success keeping hsv2 at bay. Yesterday that proved to be true. I had the sensation that the virus was active although I had no sores. I did take a few different things.. Olive leaf extract, a heaping tbs of extra virgin coconut oil internally (in addition to cooking with it) and evco externally (just in case). The sensation had subsided, but a distinct pain I get on my right side which can vary from hip to foot remained. I was on the verge of taking a pain killer but decided to take mms instead. Within a few hours the pain was completely gone. This morning no sensation remained. I chalk it up to a combination of both coconut oil and mms, but really it can be either or.

Coconut Oil, Oregano Oil

I have been taking 4 20ml tablespoons or organic coconut oil daily along with 5 drops of oil of oregano 3 times a day under my tongue since my 1st outbreak in June. I have not had another outbreak, but still get bi-monthly tingles. I am also rubbing oregano oil on my spine 3 times daily but not convinced that's doing anything. Every month is a test since I know I still have herpes when I get that dreaded tingle which is so tiny but is a reminder. In my mind the symptoms are seriously not noticeable but I just want all symptoms gone! I will post again WHEN I don't get that monthly tingle. Once that happens for 3 months in a row I will get a blood test and report back.

UPDATE: I have added 15g of vitamin C tablets and my tingles have nearly stopped. As well as taking Oregano Oil 3 times a day.

Colloidal Silver

Posted by Cornelia (Cornwall, Uk) on 11/23/2014

I started to feel the telltale tingling and burning of a herpes outbreak and, as I was away on a trip, I didn't have my usual cream on me.
However, I did have a nasal spray bottle full of colloidal silver, so before going to bed, I soaked a cotton makeup remover pad and placed it on the affected area and kept it in place with my underpants. The next morning all symptoms had almost disappeared. During the day I continued to spray the area every time I went to the bathroom and by that evening all symptoms had disappeared.
However, I didn't know if this was just a coincidence and that it was just some other irritation.
But another time, I was travelling again and I had the beginnings of an outbreak. As I didn't have any colloidal silver on me and the shops were closed, it developed into a small open sore. The next morning I found a place where I could buy some and I applied it as above. The next day the sore had almost completely healed. I had never seen an open sore heal so quickly!

I was taking valtrex for genital herpes for two years 500mg a day and it worked well to prevent outbreaks, it was not good for my body or health. I tried 100% colloidal silver, for six months, worked a little, then made my own 30x and took massive dosage, one pint a day, one cup in morning one in evening, and had been clear of outbreaks for one year, then mild outbreak, but I had cut my dose to a few mouth fuls of colloidal silver a day by then.

I took colloidal silver 30ppm on and off for 3 months. I bought it at Whole Foods. Sometimes I would take 2 tablespoons a day (morning and night) and for about 2 weeks I took 4 tablespoons a day.

I was having outbreaks every 2 weeks and the itching and the lesions were a nightmare. As soon as I started taking the colloidal silver a big outbreak came, like if the virus was trying to fight against the CS.

Even though I took CS, I still had outbreaks every 2 weeks but I noticed that they would end in about 3 days and the lesions were tiny; they looked like blisters and were not painfull. If I applied the colloidal silver directly on the lesions they disappeared in a day or less (I would keep a cotton ball soaked with CS on it overnight).

Colloidal Silver, DMSO, Hydrogen Peroxide

I have tried all sorts of things that were recommended on this site, but nothing helped.

When I was taking Vitamin supplements and L-lysin the ob's definitely came les frequently, but unfortuntaley they didnīt vanish and I also didnīt want to take so many tbls all the time because it was expensive and anoying.

After giving colloidal silver a go I kept researching and came across a cream containing silver.

I work at a hospital and silver coated dressings are regularly used on infected wounds and they work a treat. Because the colloidal silver particles in the one that I was taking weren't small enough, it didn't have any effect on me, but I know silver definitely is virucidal.

When I had an ob in the morning I immeditaley put on the cream and the same night the sore had completely vanished!!!! It was amazing.

I didn't want anything complicated that I had to put on several times a day over a few days, because I simply don't have time for that. So, this was a fantastic fix.

This didn't rid me of my gh problem though and the ob's kept coming, so I decided to try DMSO and 3% hydrogen peroxide applied to my lower spine right down to the of the spine between the butt cheeks. I wrapped it with cling wrap and left it for an hour.

This was several weeks ago and I have to say I have not used the silver cream since, because I have not had a single ob since then.

I will give some more time and will then get a blood test to see if the virus is still tracable in my blood. If you want to try the cream, it is silvadene or silver sulfadiazine creme 1% (used for topical burns).

Colloidal Silver, Grapefruit Seed Extract

Posted by Pam (Santa Barbara) on 02/24/2007

My solution for genital herpes is a combination of colloidal silver and Grapefruit Seed Extract. I put the Colloidal silver in a spray bottle and add 10 drops of GSE. As soon as I feel the tickle of a beginning outbreak I spray the area with the mixture. I keep it in the bathroom and spray every time I go there. This will usually avert the whole outbreak. If I can't spray right away and the outbreak is already happening it will cut the process down to three days instead of ten. It works every time.

Colloidal Silver, Ice  

Posted by Maryland (Los Angeles, Ca, Usa) on 08/22/2011

Use ice cubes on your genital when you are feeling that itching or tingling that tells you a new herpes outbreak is coming. Rub on the area that is itching as much as you can, several times a day if possible, and you'll prevent an outbreak!

I also used colloidal silver on my genital to decrease the size of a little lesion that felt like a pimple. I put colloidal silver on a cotton ball and kept on the area the whole night. In the morning, the lesion had disappeared completely! I used colloidal silver several times a day on my genital when itched (without the aid of the ice) and also worked wonders.

Those are treatments that work right away to avoid breakouts. Once you have a breakout, the ice won't work, but the colloidal silver will speed the healing process.

Coral Calcium

I have mad lots of research on Herpes HSV2. I have tried L-Lysine, Immune Boosters, Red Marine Algae, Olive Leaf, and a few other supplements. The only results I got was not getting sick. Or if I did get sick I was over it within 24HRS. Then I ran into several articles that stated viruses can not live or can not thrive in a alkaline environment. It made since to me because bacteria and parasites thrive in acidic environments. So I order Coral Calcium and some PH test trips. Before taking the Coral Calcium I tested my Urine on daily biases and frequently and I found out that my body was slightly acidic all the time. So I started taking the Coral Calcium and I got into a Alkaline Diet. As the days went by I started to notice that every time I tested my PH level with the PH trips that my body started to become more and more alkaline. And as of today my body is 95% of the time Alkaline and I have been out break free for two weeks so far. Compared to having an out break just about every week. I also noticed that drinking excessive alcoholic beverages would bring down my PH level very quickly and would allow me to get an outbreak. If you have any questions or comments please dont hesitate to e-mail me.

Genital Herpes Diagnosis 2 days Ago

I'm taking acyclovir, but the pills were quite pricey at $120 for a bottle of 70 pills. I would like to do something a little more natural and less expensive.

I've been reading about cornstarch as a way to dry up the sores, and I tried it today and got instant relief from the burning rawness. I actually felt happy today for the first time in a week or so since the first sore appeared, and maybe I can get a goodnight sleep. I am going to try some of these remedies listed here in the future, but hopefully I can avoid having another outbreak for awhile with the regular use of ACV as suggested in some of the posts. I love that I have a bunch of it in my cupboard just ready to use!

Thank you for being here. I don't feel quite so alone anymore.

___ Diaper Rash cream works excellent for Genital Herpes! It has zinc in it and it has ingredients in it that heal the skin. At the first sign of a tingle put the cream in the area and it heals so fast. This along with Lysine works better than prescription medication.

Hello Folks, I've been coming to this forum for awhile, usually after I get a breakout of GH and I've tried several of the methods here with some success so I thought I would share my experience. I get breakouts 2 or 3 times a year and here is what I've found helps the most. First off I can not stress the importance of a healthy diet (No sugar!!! ) the next most important thing is Sleep make sure you get lots of it. When I get any signs of outbreaks I immediately apply 70% Rubbing alchol to the area a few times a day, take massive doses of Oil of Oreganol 20 drops under the tongue 3x per day and if I catch it fast enough and watch my diet and sleep well I can usually avoid an outbreak altogether. If it does outbreak well then I keep applying rubbing alchol and 3% hydrogen peroxide throught the first several days 4 to 5x per day with a cotton swab and it usually dries up pretty quick and reduces the healing time. It doesn't always work but it works more often then not. Good luck and I encourage others to keep posting as well as follow ups to what happens to you after treatments! If we team up we can make a difference together.

Dietary Changes  

5 star (4) 

Posted by (Bklyn, Ny) on 07/11/2012

Hey everyone, I had mentioned that next month I will get retested, but I changed my mind and decided to do it by year end. Here is the reason why. I have just began a vegan diet as of this week and figure I will be ready. I still take flounder and consume the "onion garlic " drink which I believe is masking the condition with GH. Masking is not enough, I want it gone! I was still eating meat and other foods I should not be consuming so hence I am not ready to be retested. With my new lifestyle, I believe the end of the year would be better. I no longer take spirulina since I found out it is high in arginine. I only take the onion/garlic drink, cinnamon drink, lots of freshly squeezed lemon for ph, virgin raw coconut oil and oil of oregano. No more oily foods, salt, sugar etc. I try to eat mostly organic foods especially fruits and veggies raw or blanched. The fact that my friend has evidence that these two people are cured, I feel it is time I get serious. I do not want to be an old woman with this when there is evidence out there of cures. I want my life back.

Folks, do not bother with those who post that there is no cure, all things are possible. Some people want to eat the same old foods and get good result. This is insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. We also have a God who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. Oh, I also forgot to tell you I take purges and enema as well. Do not give up. The evidence is out there. I will keep u guys updated. God loves us in spite of. His nature is to love. Do not be discouraged!

Hello, I read your post and I am very curious to know if you have had any recurrent OB after your diet change.

Genital herpes Diet: I am aware that a healthy diet is important to prevent an outbreak of GH. Some readers swear to lay off peanuts, chocolate, oats, beer, wine, sugar, artificial sweetener etc. etc.

I wonder if a kind contributor could list out the type of food to avoid totally and also a recommended list to take to for GH sufferers.
Please pardon my ignorance. I am not sure whether the food I take is doing me any good. I take milk( pastuerised good milk) yoghurt, multigrain & wholewheat bread, hard cheese (Edam & Gouda). I also like brown rice, pasta, chicken,pork, salmon, ham, fresh salad. For fruits, I love banana. I heard it is a no no. Others include quava, grapefruit, kiwifruit, papaya, pineapple. I hope someone can point out which food/fruits I am taking is not suitable for me.

My GH regimen includes LLysine, BHT, Olive extract, Zinc, magnesium.
Hoping for a favorable response.

If you google something such as "high lysine foods," you will find a complete listing of all of the foods that are ok for herpes, since high lysine foods are what starve the virus.

Papaya, beets, mango, apricots, applees, pears, loquat, figs, avacados, tomato juice and soybeans have the highest lysine content. Bananas are a no no because the lysine/arganine content is of equal ratio. Fish, meats and cheese are all high in lysine as far as I can tell, though I am just learning about this diet myself.

I contacted a friend of mine a month ago when I first contracted herpes. She has been dealing with it for a number of years and she highly recommended a zapper and sent me a link. I ordered it (she should know best) and have been doing it 2 times a day every day, including as many high lysine foods as possible and ACV. I am getting very good results - my only problem seemed to be recontamination, but the man is gone as of last week, so now I should be a-ok. The zapper is strange - it weakens the cell walls so suppliments and medicines become more effective.

Good luck to you - I am going to try to get a hold of an olive leaf...that sounds very interesting.

Hi 2nd Chance, I just mentioned the zapper last week. It is a device based in Hulda Clark's principles. The actual zapper I use is called The Terminator Zapper. It's simpler than the actual Hulda Clark zappers and very effective. I have had one for a couple of years and wore it all the time for a few months. Now I only use it occassionally. I just had my daughter wearing it as she had a urinary tract infection.

If you google it, you will find lots of information on it. I believe I bought mine for about $115. They can be expensive but it's unnecessary. They can take care of worms, parasites, viruses, funguses. It alkalizes the body and transmits frequencies that kill all pathogens. I would wear my zapper on my hip and at night as well. If you have any other questions, let me know. Hope this helps, Lisa

Do you have any idea why anything with a current would put me in even more extreme pain for a week or more.... Not being able to get up off the floor? That includes accupuncture, tens machine, electronic regenesis machine, accupuncture with a current. I think the zapper would do similar things to me. If you believe in hemaview - my blood showed no healthy cells, flooded with viruses, could only find 1 bit of candida. The naturopath suggested I had a immune system that wasnt working. But a zapper would be useful for killing some of these virus. Ive tried everything else suggested on here for virals. The earthing matt I use a grounding rod. The slight tingling I felt the first 2 nights I do not now.

Hi Robyn, Blood is the carrier of all diseases.

You should try rebuilding your blood cells rather killing bacteria and viruses.

Have you tried Wheat Grass Juice. Wheat Grass Juice builds your blood, the wheat grass juice molecular formula is itself similar to Heamaglobin except it has magnesium than iron in Heamaglobin. It is anti parasitic, which would kill the pathogens.

You should give it a try, in addition take natural home made probiotic foods like: Milk Kefir, Saurkraut, Miso, Kombucha tea, Umeboshi

Hi Robyn, I am actually going to give you the link to the terminator zapper that I use. That way you can read about it yourself and then come to your own conclusions about whether it will work for you or not.

I know you are extremely sensitive so I can't say whether you will handle it or not. I have never felt any stinging or itching but they say that if it begins that way, it will decrease as the body becomes clean.

As for the earthing mat, I'm glad to hear you are using the grounding rod and that the tingling you experienced in the beginning is gone. Perhaps this will be your experience with the zapper. Wish you the best, Lisa

I have no less symptoms but my scans show the brain tumor has gone & the very calcified arteries for my age are also gone. Pity the pain and allergies didnt go with them but I will continue with wheatgrass for the rest of my life, even though it doesnt seem like theres going to be much of my life left.

Robyn, reading your post I can't help but comment anything that could possibly help you as you seem in a special needs group where there is little resolve. As for "wheatgrass", a wholesome "green" drink of many health-conscious folks. But I believe there is a common oversight concerning the wheatgrass. As far as benefits, the mature wheatgrass is way less than its younger stage as "wheat-sprouts". The sprouts are loaded w/ naturally occurring antioxidant enzymes that really supercharge the life of our cells. Have you tried the sprouts??? They would surely help your seeming free radical condition.

Robyn, just a few past experiences:

1. If you can tolerate lemon, you might want to up your intake of that.

When a family member of mine was taking it daily, and his house got infested with bedbugs, and it was mosquito season, everyone got bitten except for him. This might mean that the "bad bugs" don't like lemon, or ppl ingesting it!

2. Another family member resorts to "only fruit and veggies" when Crohn's strikes. It never fails them. Raw or cooked doesn't seem to make much difference here.
