BHT is an initialism for butylated hydroxytoluene, a lab-created antioxidant that is often added to foods for use as a preservative, but it also is used as a home remedy for cold sores and herpes in general. The chemical is a fat-soluble organic compound closely related to vitamin E and is considered generally safe as a food additive; however, medicinal doses are much higher than that found in foods, and some have reported links between BHT and both hyperactivity in children and cancer development.
As a complementary therapy, BHT is regarded as a strong antiviral and antioxidant, especially when used in tandem with Vitamin C and L-lysine.
Home Remedies: Applied directly to a cold sore, BHT is said to speed healing by attacking the herpes virus. It is also sometimes used internally (capsule form) for treatment of AIDS symptoms or the various herpes conditions.
do you know of anyone that has tried a combination of coconut oil and bht? The coconut oil dissolves the lipid coating of viruses. Then the bht may be more effective. I have read about a study done in the Philippines in which coconut oil got rid of hiv virus.
Do you know of anyone that has used dmso on the liver area and had positive results in healing? Thank you
Dear Oscar, Have you had any feedback from anyone with your BHT protocal with regards to Peripheral Neuropathy? Is it safe to use with that condition? I have tried to go on your yahoo site but can't seem to get on there. I am a computer novice and will keep trying. Thank you.
