Genital Herpes Triggers
Posted by Katherine (Vancouver, Canada) on 05/14/2008
Thank you all for the information regarding clearing up and preventing outbreaks. I've suffered from GH for about 10 years. I find my outbreaks are related to a latex sensitivity that I have. If I use prophylactics that are non-latex, I don't usually have much of an issue. Problem is, these products are very expensive. Also have found that excessive sugar in my diet can easily bring on an outbreak. Sun seems to counteract this. I think outbreak triggers and methods of clearing up outbreaks are very personal and different for everyone. Thank you all for sharing though, gives me possibilities to try.
Grapefruit Seed Extract
Posted by Ian (Sydney, Australia) on 07/13/2008
[YEA] I have found a product called Traveler's Friend 'Citrus Seed Extract' which the health food shop assistant said he was sure was mostly Grapefruit seed extract. I tried it amongst many things I am exploring having contracted herpes. I am improving every day and continuing with oral coconut oil, colloidal silver and (carefully diluted hydrogen peroxide). The reason why I'm posting this is that I had three small blisters appear on the top of my p----. As well as all the rest of my genitals being affected this was too much. I put a drop of grapefruit seed extract on these three (they were close together). To my huge surprise within half an hour they had retreated, then got small scabs and healed far quicker than anything else has!! WARNING: I then got excited and put the gfs extract on other larger sores, and suffered severe pain which I think was a result of this. Nonetheless, the incredible speed at which the gfs extract turned those three sores (painlessly) into final phase needs to be mentioned and is surely worth exploring. I am now taking gfs extract orally (15 drops in a glass of water 3x/day and may increase)
Healthy Diet, L-Lysine, Lemon Balm

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] I have been plauged with sores on my lips since getting kissed in high school by a guy who had a sore (I remember noticing it but didn't know what it was). I tried every prescribed medication but never really found relief, especially after the sore erupted. Over the years, I have experienced fewer outbreaks and I attribute that to: eating healthier, developing better ways to cope with stress, and including l-lysine and lemonbalm in my supplement regimine. As soon as I feel that tight, tingly spot in my lip, I load up (just about triple) my dose of the l-lysine and lemonbalm, and the outbreak doesn't come through. This has been a terrible week (including the death of a family member) and I missed that tight, tingly feeling. Today, I have blisters. I've read and read and read everyone's posts. I'm trying the hydrogen peroxide treatment and calling in sick to work. I'llbe happy to post the outcome later, but I wanted to let you guys know what I've found that prevents the sores to begin with. Research for your self to determine the best dosages and frequency of before you begin any herbal supplementation, but I personally attest to the effectiveness of this regimine.

[YEA] I had breakouts all the time. I went to a holistic doctor which gave me the following for for 45 days(Flora max 2 caps 2x a day, Colostrum 600mg 2 caps 2x a day, Red Marine Algae 500mg 2 caps 2x a day, BHT food grade preservative 2 caps 2x a day, Colloidal Silver 400ppm 1/2 tps in 2 oz of water 2x a day and Host Defence made from organic mushrooms 2 caps 2x a day. Part 1 build basic immune system and weaken the virus breakouts go away in about 2 weeks. Part 2 introduce special agents herbal medicines that kill the virus. You will continue to take Red Marine Algae, BHT and VRP Colloidal Silver. I have not had another breakout again and this really works.

[YEA] For herpes, break open a vitamin A capsule and apply. I've tried everything. This helps me prevent a full blown outbreak. I get the virus on my nose!
Herpes and Sex Lube
Posted by Ann O (US) on 05/29/2008
[WARNING!] I was reading the Herpes pages, and someone mentioned to avoid foods and drinks with arginine. I think everyone should know that virtually all sex lubricants on the market contain arginine! I have not been able to find one that did not contain this, and it causes outbreaks immediately.

Herpes Outbreak Prevention Tips
Posted by Kelly (Dallas, Texas) on 07/26/2011
While reading the various treatments others have posted for herpes, which I will try some of these myself, I have not read what symptoms people notice they are having prior to an out break. Getting more in touch with your body's symptoms prior to an outbreak can completely prevent the outbreak altogether as the virus can be suppressed.
I will have fatique for sure... Also my "nerves will bother me" a lot! I will feel hot and cold, (sometimes but not always) and many times my stomach will rumble and act peculiar 24-48 hours prior to an outbreak. I have very carefully learned this over the years.
I have to avoid completely eating any type of acidy foods like tomatoes, tomatoe sauces, orange juice, jalapenos or spicy types of foods. Acidophilus tablets double or even tripling the normal dose along with eating yogurt is very helpful. If you have valtrex or similar product, acylovir and take as soon as you notice symptoms this will allow the virus to calm down and then go dormant as apposed to raising to the surface of the skin. Pay attention to feeling of your neck on each side, near the glands as this usually is very tender and hurts right before an outbreak occurs on the skin. If you feel it is coming to the surface but has not formed yet a sore, usually doubling the medication at that point will help that the sore is greatly reduced from what it could of been without taking it.
Also the nerve endings are effected by the virus so taking B vitamins and mineral supplements that help the nerves will be greatly effective in calming down the system and helping in suppressing the virus. Stay away from stressful situations as much as possible if you can and use deep breathing really helps....

If you are finding a herpes fighting solution than Dalinex is an effective homeopathic formula. It can be taken without any risk as it is made from organic products that do not causes any harm on the body.

Hello, I was diagnosed with herpes type 2. Have read that this oxygen therapy may cure my herpes. I am going to try the food grade 35% h2o2. 3 drops 3x times each day in a 6 oz glass cup! Then, day 2 it goes up to 4 drops 3x times each day and I will keep increasing the number of drops untilI have reached the maximum of 25 drops.
Then the very next day I will start dropping the amount back down to 24 drops 3x times each day, then 23 drops 3x each day and I will continue down to maintenance level of 10,5,3-whatever feels right! Is this ok?
Also, I am bit confused about this whole regime like others. So.. I know it has to be taken with distilled water on an empty stomach 1 hour before food and 3 hours after food and water or liquids 1/2 hr after is ok.
But I have also heard of the three hr window too. I am a bit confused on to how to complete this oxygen therapy. When to eat.. Etc.. What can?I drink? Can I go back to drinking spring water after the 1/2 hr? I do take mulit-vitamins so I've read that it is a no no. But, is that only between the 3 hr window or the 1 hr before food and 3 hrs after food thing? Any information I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you so much!!! :) oh!
Also, was thinking about taking the hperoxide 35% food grade into a bath because I think I would have a hard time following the procedures of taking it orally and I have heard that you can eat whenever while inducing the formula into a warm bath so that might be the way to go for me but was wondering if it would have the same effects as taking it orally as a result to try to get rid of the simplex virus! ? Again, thank you so much. I do look forward to hearing form you! I am excited to start! " I am really not sure how this site works. Posted this about three times and have not gotten a reply from Ted or anyone? feel free to email me so I can get a response. Thank you.
