Gentian Violet and Infrared Light Therapy for Genital Herpes
Back in the 1980's I remember Gentian Violet used for herpes. I was 19 in the military when a GF (nothing sexual between us) had a genital herpes outbreak. I didn't know what it was, but there had been news reports about the new STD genital herpes. Her OB/GYN treated her with gentian violet 1% painting her private parts and shinning a red infared light, lighting her girly part. I doubt that the treatment was going to have any effect; but in seven days, her outbreak was over.
What is the protocol you used.... anyone?
Take zinc with food. I learned the hard way. Once, I took it on an empty stomach and after a short while I suddenly and violently started vomiting. Barely made it to the bathroom. My face was crimson red (freaky) and it was one of the worst vomiting episodes I've ever had in my life. It was short spell but extreme. Don't think I could have remained in this state long or you'd be thinking you need to call an ambulance. Yeah it was that bad. Felt like I'd been poisoned. Pretty awful and don't recommend making this mistake.

Did you take a blood test?
You may want to try BHT as it will damage and suppress the herpes virus, but you will never completely get rid of the virus as once you have it, you will have it for life. But BHT will suppress it sometimes for a long time. Start with a dosage for the first few days with up to 900 mg and then taper off to about 400 mg. BHT works best when first dissolved in oil as it is only soluble in oil or alcohol, but alcohol is not recommended. This way it is better absorbed in your system. In addition, you may want to use Lysine about 1500 mg/ day as it helps to prevent the spread of the virus. Hope it helps.
I saw your message on Earth clinic regarding the treatment of Herpes. I have ocular herpes and my daughter of 3 years caught it as well. I hope Cimetidine works for us when we use it as she is always in pain.
Hi Ellanor, thank you for sharing this information, it's such a big help.
Could you tell me, did you take all the supplements only when you had an outbreak? or regularly everyday for a while?
Do you think I should attack it only when it's out breaking?
Could you also share if you maintained a special diet during these times?

Yeah, I forgot peanuts can frequent GH, so I eat a big bag of salted roasted peanuts, it gave me 2 flare ups. This site's revisit reminds me of nuts are no no.
Peanut sauce for satay .... peanut is nuts that is a no no for herpes flare up.
You have to take daily for at least 3 months.
Heard about 'The Cure is in the Cupboard' from Christian Green (Nature Heals Us) on YT. He has a strategy and many ppl report in testimonials of having got rid of their virus. He says it's a parasite and recommends a multi-level approach whereby the use of herbs, supplements, 35% Food grade hydrogen peroxide, distilled water only, and super clean eating (zero processed foods) is used to attack and neutralize the virus.
Magnesium citrate can make u constipated. It's not safe for long term.
Hi, any ideas what strength peroxide Happy from AZ used in 2016?
For me so far I can, I've been having outbreaks almost every 2 weeks sometimes once a month based on if I'm on meds like lysine or prescription meds. I've had herpes for almost 4 years I think I got it from a partner but I don't know which one.
I've tried so many experiments like herbal remedies and even home remedies but none helped me like how I see HP does it even stops my genital herpes outbreaks. I hope when I get the food grade one it stops it completely for sure. I recently started using HP oral topically and I'm seeing great results. I notice it blocks the genital outbreaks but the oral ones still come I'm confused as to why but I'll be purchasing the Food grade HP to experiment again.
I hope this helps anyone struggling with this pest of a virus
Thanks for sharing about the digestive issues. With this recent outbreak, I've had a loss of appetite, diarrhea, indigestion, some nausea and nothing food-wise appeals to me. Generally, when having a breakout, I feel literally sick and extremely fatigued. This time the symptoms are worse so I'm wondering if it's the BHT. I've stopped all supplements to see if I feel better and if some of the digestive symptoms leave. This is a horrible disease.
Hi, could you recommend a brand that I can buy online? And does this work on hsv2? Regards Adam.
Hi Suzanne, did you have hsv2 or cold sores?
I have heard herpes was healed by putting on a bandaid with a mix of ivermectin and Neosporin for 2 days. Supposedly the blisters cleared up within a week to 10 days.
Hello. Is it the sunflower lecithin I need to take?
I tried so many other suggestions from people on earth clinic. None of them worked. I would get regular outbreaks every couple of weeks no matter what I did or took.
The magnesium citrate has been nothing short of a miracle! It's been over a month and I've been outbreak free! Thank you so much! I feel like I have my life back again!
Thanks for this! Have you been re-tested? Do you think it has been suppressed or eradicated/cured?
No more herpes outbreaks or shedding
High quality magnesium citrate supplement. I guarantee you will never get another outbreak again. Puts the virus completely to sleep. Men take 400mg per day women take 300mg per day. This is not an if or maybe, it will work. It 100% works for everyone. No more guessing or hoping something will work.
I just retested Feb ‘22: 5 mos since my last IgG test for HSV-2: 13.3.
Lecithin cures herpes. There is an old post on Earth-clinic about lecithin. I tried everything to get rid of herpes, like I imagine other sufferers have. Lecithin works. Take it and you will never have an outbreak again. Yes, you continue to take it.
I buy the Now brand and take two a day. I started with two in the am and two in the pm. Now just two a day and I even miss days. Lecithin works and it's cheap.
And I'm curious as to which form of HSV she had: oral or genital?
Vitamin C in ascorbic acid turns into oxalates crystals that damage the kidneys.
Over time, oxalates can damage the kidney enough to cause renal failure. The kidney is the main organ focused on excretion, and the stress and inflammation from oxalates can overwhelm it. Patients with kidney stones have been shown to have decreased mitochondrial function in their white blood cells.
When oxalates are deposited into your organ tissues, they trigger inflammation. Specifically the NLPR-3 inflammasome .NLPR-3 has been implicated in numerous chronic diseases, including cancer .AutismThis study found that patients with Autism had 3x the levels of oxalates in their blood than normal individuals.
Skin and Eye Issues
High circulating oxalate levels leads to deposits in numerous organs throughout the body. Two of the most common are the skin and eyes .Oxalates are abrasive causing skin and eye issues when deposited there.
I did use the Synergy protocol - Dec ‘18- Sept ‘19. My IgG score started at 14.5 and was 17.8 nine months later. I noticed after a month a huge lessening in symptoms and that continued the whole time such that I felt ‘cured' until I got my test results. I took some months off for my liver to rest and later started my own protocol using their suggested products but from different supplement providers as the company was shut down for a bit due to shipping and new ownership issues.
A year later, this past September, my IgG score was 12.5. I believe I've been symptom free since November and need to test again. I will give Synergy praise for their excellent customer service. You don't need to be a paying customer for them to help you tweak your diet and supplements. I learned from them that Vitamin C is high in Arginine - I was daily taking a few thousand grams of it. I feel truly cared for. The price is the same whether you use theirs or buy the listed products locally. In my break period I met a young lady that had been cured by their protocol but her starting IgG score was less than 3 and she started it right away. That may be critical in the cure as any score 5> is high. Sadly, she has since gotten reinfected and is back on their protocol. Her asymptomatic partner's IgG score had come down from 9 to 6 in two months on Synergy. In lieu of their mystery amino acids, I am using 500mg Glutamine on an empty stomach both morning and night, 500mg Glycine at bedtime on an empty stomach, and 500mg Methionine with food in the morning along with 45mg Zinc Gluconate and 200mcg Selenium. I take 500mg Lysine 4x/day on an empty stomach. They have approved of my added Vitamin D3, Ubiquinol, Magnesium, Vitamin B Complex, Green Tea Extract and ApoLactoferrin. Their website also suggests, and I take apart from the amino acids, Melatonin and Monolaurin. Rhodiola Rosea, Tribulus, and Astragulas in 750mg dosages are also included in their protocol and taken away from my personal protocol. They emphasize staying away from Arginine foods as the body processes it differently from Lysine and Herpes will make a little go a long way for replication. A guy I know also used it and it didn't work for him but he wouldn't give up high Arginine beer nor make any needed dietary or lifestyle changes otherwise. You may glean something from their user friendly website.
Have you had a recent IgG test? I wish more would post the results of their testing. It does not have to involve a costly Doctors visit. There are a few online testing companies that are affordable and will send a prescription for your HSV testing to your local LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics. You get your results privately online. I've used ‘Request a Test' here in North America the last 2yrs. My next option is ‘STDCheck.com' or ‘UltaLab'. This allows me to affordably self-monitor what is or isnt working.

Molke, Grains are high in amino acid Arginine which feeds the virus. Check online the ratio of amino acid Lysine vs Arginine of everything you ingest. Lysine helps to starve virus.
Apple Cider Vinegar
The Baking Soda is a quick way to alkaline ones body.
Eleanor, have you had an IgG test done to see if your method affects that? I wish more would test prior and after their experiences for reference.
Weeping, I used Oregano Oil every which as prescribed on the internet for 18mos to no avail of my HSV-2. Though my HSV-1 was eradicated in less than 9mos. My starting IgG score for HSV-1 was 2.45. My last IgG score for HSV-2 at the end of the Oregano Oil experience had gone up to 14.5! I've found anyone eradicated of Herpes had an IgG score of <3. A score of 5> is high.
Maryland, you don't need to take coconut oil by mouth. It's the Lauric Acid in it that works against viruses ie Herpes. Monolaurin is a dry product from coconut oil that is made of the Lauric Acid. I order my monolaurin from Lauricidin. Google it.
Coconut meat is high in Arginine and feeds the virus. Coconut Oil is the only part that folks with Herpes can use - an example from Coconut Oil is monolaurin which is an antiviral. Antivirals ie Astragalus fight viruses, antibacterials fight bacteria; antibiotics kill bacteria not viruses.
Kevin Trudeau's Protocol
Coconut water and onions are both high in Arginine and feed the virus. A diet higher in Lysine vs Arginine will starve the virus. It's important to check online the Lysine vs Arginine ratio of everything you ingest. Even Vitamin C supplements are high in Arginine. We know Herpes is a protein based virus and reacts to Amino Acids which are the building blocks of protein.
And as Lyn has pointed out, regular blood tests of your liver and kidneys along with your IgG score for your Herpes is important to monitor your health.

Black walnut Tincture.
I struggled with Herpes 2 outbreaks almost monthly until I went to a kinesiologist who prescribed Blackwalnut Tincture. It's now been about 15 years since my last outbreak so either it went into total remission or I have been cured completely. I really hope this works for others. I took it internally (you can't take BW for too long) and I cannot remember what my dose was but I don't think I took it for a particularly long time. (6-8 weeks?) You can also apply it topically on any sores. I really hope this helps anyone struggling with outbreaks.
Hi! Did this end up becoming a thread?
Topical Application of Colloidal Silver for Herpes
I used a $30 bottle of colloidal silver from my local pharmacy with great success. I caught herpes from my first partner and it was unfortunately recurrent plus it began to worsen over the past five years. I am amazed at how effective this is. After all that money wasted on useless medication and stress over the condition, all it took was a month of topical application and I haven't had a symptom since. I highly recommend!
Genital herpes topical application. Tried many different things. These are the most effective cures I have found when I experience an outbreak. Mostly I rotate between a few drops of a colloidal silver dmso solution and bht in liquid dmso. 2 or 3 times a day I will rub a very small amount of organic virgin coconut oil on the sore followed by a drop of dmso. Occasionally I do a combination of 2 or all 3 at the same time. I think the bht dmso is the most effective of the 3 but I definitely see visual results with the silver as well. The coconut oil doesn't do much for me aside from cutting down on soreness and irritation. But this regimen seems to get rid of my outbreaks within 5 days or less. Which might not sound like much but before I started using this combination they would last 2 weeks to a month.
Only thing that worked to keep outbreaks at bay was 1 scoop of specifically lauricidin with 1 teaspoon of virgin coconut oil 3x daily. If I ever miss a single dose, outbreaks will come back in a matter of hours. 2x a day is NOT enough. 1 scoop (3 grams) 3x/day.... once in morning, once late after and once at bedtime. No hot drinks with it or your stomach will hurt. NOTHING else works. Coconut oil WITH it makes a difference.
Apple Cider Vinegar, L-Lysine
Add to Lysine, Lauricidin Monlaurin supplement. You can ever buy a combo thru Solaray. The only time I had a new outbreak was when I took a break from them. I now also take a shot of ACV daily... and going to try Essaic tea (with the sheep sorrel root, not just leaves).
DMSO, Coconut Oil & Lemon Water
Final Update: I just decided to stop everything except lemon water. I went from drinking a warm cup of lemon water in the morning to drinking a whole squeezed lemon in 1.5 liters of water and drinking it throughout the day. The month long flare that would go away went away in 2 days. Drink it with a straw so the acid from the lemons don't damage your teeth. Also drink more water with electrolytes during the day because I've heard too much le.on water can dehydrate you if you don't drink anything else with it. All I needed was to drink more lemon water and drink it through the day. So it looks like all I need is a whe lemon squeezed in 1.5 liters and drink that every day. I understand some may not be able to handle the initial acidity of lemons, but as I understand, after digestion, it actually turns alkaline and can clear up acidity and inflammation in the body. So turns out drinking enough lemon water during the day is all I need.
This is the ONLY thing that has ever worked (and believe me I have tried EVERYTHING), but you HAVE to stay with it and do it everyday. 1 lemon in 1.5 liters of water throughout the day. Drink with a straw to protect tooth enamel. Drink additional water with electrolytes to stay hydrated. It is the only thing that cleared up a month and a half long flare that nothing would help. After a few days of lemon water, the flare was gone and never came back. People say it's the vitamin C, but I've tried enormous amounts of intravenous Vitamin C that still didn't help 100%. I think it's the fact that even though lemons are acidic, they make the body alkaline after digested. This is a miracle treatment. Is it a cure? Probably not, but a miracle treatment t that keeps it away nonetheless. I don't have a sex partner so I don't have anything to worry about there, but the outbreaks are incredibly painful. I hope this help helps someone. Good luck!
FINAL UPDATE! I stopped using everything and started inreasing my consumption of lemon water. Month long outbreak gone in 2 days!!! Only lemon water. That's it. So I will still try the lecithin for a few months because it has other health benefits, but I've found my miracle..... 1 lemon squeezed in 1.5 liters drunk throughout the day. Drink additional water with electrolytes so you don't get dehydrated and drink with a straw so it doesn't damage enamel on teeth. Hope this helps!!!
I've actually tried huge doses of Lysine in the past. It never worked for me. But now, I actually have a little trouble with my liver. So for that reason, high doses of Lysine is not a good idea for me. But I agree it's a great option for many out there.
DMSO, Coconut Oil & Lemon Water
So I have slacked off big time on my regular lemon water regimen. And a huge outbreak popped up. I've been dealing with it for a month. This morning I started back drinking one and a half liters of lemon water a day. The DMSO and coconut oil help keep the sores from turning into blisters. But the sores would not go away. I started drinking lots of lemon water again at 9 a.m. this morning and it is now 4:30 p.m. The itching and burning has finally gone way down. So it seems the key to prevention is mostly the lemon water. I will still use the DMSO and coconut oil. I'm going to start adding in lecithin. But this is really and truly the dream combo for me. I wish everyone good luck!
Ok, so the outbreak would not go away! I did realize that my lemon water consumption went down quite a bit. Before, I was drinking one and a half liters of lemon water throughout the day. And I would squeeze in a whole lemon. So this morning, the bumps were really, really bad. And the only thing that keeps them from blistering is keeping DMSO and coconut oil on them throughout the day. But they still never go away. I've been fighting this outbreak for an entire month! So this morning, I decided to take a risk. I went to the grocery store very early and bought a bunch of large lemons and bottles of spring water. I started drinking lemon water this morning at 9 am. It is now 4:30 p.m. I decided to just use the lemon water and none of my other treatments. I did not use any DMSO and coconut oil this morning. The sores were burning and I could tell they were trying to turn into blisters this morning. But now, the itching and burning is gone. I can still feel remnants of the bumps there. But they are going away. I am still going to use the lecithin everyday because it is good for your liver and because the virus will not be able to infect the cells If I stay alkaline with the lemon water. Then they will be very susceptible to the lecithin and the lecithin can weekend and perhaps maybe eventually kill the virus altogether. So, if the lemon water stops working I will let you guys know. But as of right now, lots of lemon water all throughout the day seems to be my best option. Not just once a day or twice a day... gulps of it all day long. So the key to fast outbreak healing prevention is lots of lemon water over the entire day and perhaps the cure over the long haul is indeed lecithin. I will also use DMSO and coconut oil on the area daily for extra prevention.
I do not see L-Lysine on your list it has long been posted as a great help and an excellent remedy for herpes by many on EC. If a person has shingles, which is also considered a type of herpes, certain foods high in arginine such as nuts and chocolate and other foods high in arginine can bring on an outbreak and so can stress . Lysine supplements will bring balance and restore the correct lysine level to your body system, which will prevent or heal the herpes breakout. You may have to take it more than once a day for a bad breakout.
Early this year I had a bad cold which could have been COVID, COVID is also said to be a type of herpes. I took one 1000mg Lysine supplement every few hours safely for about 2 weeks.
Speaking from my experience with shingles, I have used BHT, vitamin D3, Olive Leaf, baking soda and other things of great help, however I have had a longer victory when I upped my lysine intake.
When we are trying to be the answer to the cry of so many, life can get real stressful, that is why some of us have lost our hair. We have to know when to delegate, and when to stand still to see the salvation of the Lord.
Ted gave us so much to reference back to, this site on herpes is full of his treasures...much love, Charity
Ok so update, the outbreak that acted like it was getting better just came flaring back up in a vengeance. I don't know what else to do other than to add in BHT. Since lecithin supppsedly reaches the nerve cells and is a fat lipid, and BHT dissolves in fat, I am going to try to start taking them together with a little coconut oil to see what happens. This outbreak has not broken the skin because of all I'm doing to treat it, but it has remained very swollen, red and angry and keeps trying to push through. I'm doubling up on zinc, taking tons of Vitamin C, Vitamin D, B Complex, Multivitamin, topical oregano oil, Coconut oil, and DMSO. One thing that I was doing everyday before was drinking lemon water everyday all day long. I'll add that back in and JUST MAYBE something will work. I'll try to update. This one is worse and lasting way longer than the first one I ever had. I'm so sad. I do think lecithin is helping but I think it's just going to be a matter of finding the right combo of stuff. And maybe it is a herx reaction and it gets worse before it gets better. Maybe I have to just keep taking it and understand that the "die off" can make flares worse before they get better. I'm not giving up. And I'll try to keep everyone posted.
Edgar Cayce's Remedy
Does this work for genital herpes or only for oral herpes? Anyone?
Coconut and Frankincense Oils
I contracted genital herpes from my husband after 20 years of marriage. I knew going into the marriage that he had it but anyway I've struggled with them terribly until the last two years. I have no scientific proof or I should say explanation but I can tell you what has worked and completely eliminated outbreaks which I was getting every month for a year.
Lysine didn't help and I was even breaking through the daily prophylactic antibiotic. I knew the antibiotics were not good. Perhaps God gave me the idea,
I took the healthy coconut oil that isn't refined, maybe about a cup, and dropped 20 to 30 drops of frankincense (I use Doterra) And I began applying it to the genitals which also helped with dryness at my age. Not one outbreak.
I began to think I was healed so I stopped and within a week had an outbreak. Naturally, I've been using it ever since and zero outbreaks. I can't explain it I can only tell you it's worked.
Okay so I tried the lecithin granules yesterday. I had a very angry outbreak that was out of control. Since taking the lecithin granules yesterday, the outbreak is about 80 percent gone from what it was yesterday. I've been fighting this outbreak for 2 weeks with DMSO and coconut oil. So they have not turned into blisters or open sores. But the outbreak just would not go away!
I also started on my high dose vitamin C regimen 2 days ago that I had slacked off on. I'm sure that is helping some too. But I really feel like this lecithin is making a world of difference. People take this stuff every day long term for all kinds of health issues. I may never stop taking it myself. I will do my best to remember to keep you guys posted on the progress
You're really not giving it much time. Some people have to give it two or three months. Some people even say as much as 9 months. But you seem to be expecting results with a minimum amount of time and a minimum dose on an already compromised immune system. Maybe try to improve your immune system in addition to the time and dosage. It wouldn't hurt to take some extra vitamin C, B Complex, D3, Zinc, Multivitamins, etc.
I've been using DMSO, lemon juice and coconut oil with good results but not a cure because, after many months, a horrendous outbreak just came on for no reason. I purchased some non-gmo soy lecithin granules. The recommended dose is 7.5 grams a day with a meal. You can get the granules from sunflowers if you have a soy allergy. I got them from a health good supplement store. I sprinkled the loose granules over a salad. I couldn't really taste them and didn't notice them in the salad. Just tasted alone without anything.... they are still pretty tasteless.... maybe they taste mildly like a little bit of butter..... anyway, going to try these and keep you posted on the progress. Still going to take lots of vitamin C, B Complex, Vitamin D3, high quality multivitamin. I drink very little alcohol and try to stay away from processed sugar and too many starchy carbs. Let's see what happens!
DMSO, Coconut Oil & Lemon Water
I wanted to clarify that even when there are no sores present, I apply the DMSO and coconut oil once a day, every single morning regardless. It just acts as a continual line of defense in case any little bit of the virus gets through to the skin. DMSO is important because it carries the coconut oil through the skin transdermally. It's pretty destructive to the herpes by itself. But the coconut is a double whammy because the herpes virus is enclosed in a "lipid bilateral envelope". That means it's enclosed in a layer of protective fat. And one of the few things that can actually penetrate that fat and help break it up to expose the virus' weakness is more fat. Hence the coconut oil. But coconut oil is also a potent antiviral that can kill most viruses in their tracks in a laboratory setting. So the coconut oil helps expose the virus by fusing with and removing that layer of fat so both the DMSO and coconut oil can attack the virus after it is exposed and unprotected; and the DMSO helps carry the coconut through all those layers of skin. So Coconut oil and DMSO are a really great team. I warn about making sure the area is thoroughly clean because DMSO can carry other things through the skin as well that may be harmful.
DMSO, Coconut Oil & Lemon Water
So in the past when I've gotten the beginning signs of a cold sore, I've applied a layer of pure DMSO that I got from the local Tractor Supply Company in the equestrian section. I use the pure 99% gel form. It's easier to use. Then a layer of Extra Virgin Coconut oil, then another layer of DMSO. I let it soak in for 20 minutes before I dress. Do this three times a day. Make sure the area is clean before application. If I catch the outbreak early, it never turns into a sore and goes away in a couple of days. If I drink lemon water every day, twice a day, morning and bedtime, in addition to a daily application of the DMSO and Coconut oil, then I have thus far been able to prevent the outbreaks altogether. Use fresh Lemons, not the already squeezed lemon you buy in a bottle. Also, try to avoid sugar and alcohol. I personally drink coffee every day on this protocol and still am outbreaks free as long as I maintain the regimen daily.
In reply to Jordan from Memphis's post on 11/21/20, who wrote: "My life is controlled by this horrendous disease. I just ordered hypericum from Biogetica. Can you tell me exactly what (else) you took? Were you on a certain diet? I would pay good money to speak with either of you guys. I've been trying for 4 years to get rid of this stupid disease. I am so desperate. Thank you for your reply!"
Hello, I'm sorry for your suffering. I used to break out every month with herpes. I've cleaned up my diet a lot, and quit drinking alcohol. But I would still get an outbreak. I started taking vitamin b5 (pantothenic acid) in high doses, as well as lysine every day. I haven't had an outbreak in probably 6 months or so. I think these two things have helped me. It also cleared up acne problems.
I hope that helps.
How do you know for sure if you were cured? Did you take the hydrogen peroxide on the day you were tested? Because taking that or any antivirals will make the test for antibodies show up super low. It will not be accurate. Have you been tested again or had an outbreak since this post?
Relief from repeated GH flare-ups
I came up with this new recipe for a soothing lotion after reading various sources, especially cures reported by Earth Clinic contributors.
I was spurred into action when a third outbreak started in less than 6 weeks. Relief was almost immediate, and much better by morning after a bedtime application. By the second morning there was minor swelling but no stinging or burning at all. I waited a few weeks before sharing my good news, because I wanted to be sure of the effect. At the time of writing, I've been symptom-free for 45 days. I hope this suggestion can help ease the suffering of anyone able to give it a try.
CAUTION: Licorice can cause issues such as heart palpitations for some people, so please check with the doctor or pharmacist if you have a chronic health problem or are taking prescription medication
The lotion I made was thin enough to store in a squeezable or pump dispenser bottle but I found it most convenient to use a wide necked container, using a clean plastic spoon or narrow wooden spatula to scoop some out each time. Before use, bathe the affected area with baby shampoo or warm salt water, rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel. Wash your hands before and after applying the lotion. All homemade creams and lotions are best stored in the refrigerator, and you'll benefit from the cooling effect with this one especially.
The recipe produces a decent amount so if you get fast initial results, you can continue to use it at least twice a day morning and evening until it's finished to stave off further outbreaks. I recommend using a panty liner to protect against stains.
Recipe as follows:
- 2 tablespoons Distilled Water
- 1 teaspoon Liquid Sunflower Lecithin
- 2 capsules Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
- 1 teaspoon Licorice Root Powder*
- 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 5 drops Garlic oil**
- 5 drops Oregano oil
- Optional: a pinch of food grade Borax
(make sure everything is thoroughly clean/sterilised)
- 2 small pans or heatproof bowls
- Spatula or small balloon whisk
- Measuring spoons
- Strainer, fine mesh
- Suitable storage container
- Funnel, if needed to transfer to container
Gently heat the coconut oil, add the licorice root powder and allow to infuse for at least an hour, preferably longer. You should see the oil darkening in colour from the licorice root. In a separate container, heat the distilled water, remove from heat and add the Lecithin, stirring until dissolved. Add the contents of the B3 capsules and Borax. Stir until thoroughly combined. Strain the coconut oil into the container with the water based mix, then add the garlic and oregano oils and blend by whisking vigorously until a creamy lotion is produced. Cover and store in the refrigerator. Optionally adding Borax helps to act as a preservative, so it should be possible to store in a cool dark place for up to 4 days, should you need to travel etc.
WARNING: If you share your refrigerator with others, please be super careful with labeling, storage etc - this lotion looks a lot like a creamy pudding!
You can substitute Lavender or Rose water for Distilled water.
*Half a teaspoon of Licorice Root Extract can replace 1 teaspoon Licorice Root Powder, just add it to the water along with the B3 and Borax.
Lecithin granules might work, I've not used them, but they would need to be dissolved completely. Soy is contra-indicated as a potential precursor in many comments I've read about Herpes, so Sunflower Lecithin is definitely preferable.
** I add any leftover cloves of peeled garlic to use later to a jar, cover with extra virgin oilve oil and store in the fridge. The oil makes a wonderful healing salve for minor cuts or burns. If you can't find garlic oil, try my method but use a teaspoonful.
Do you think the reader from 2008 ingested this? How was it used?
I wonder if they have any updates?
Leyla From Columbia Falls,
What kind of diet were you on when you were using Oregano oil? Was it raw vegan or were you consuming fish or eggs too? Please let me know soon I really need to know what diet plan to follow. Thank you!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Ted is always an informative read. My doctor told me I had herpes but is turned out to be from chicken pox and stress like shingles it was herpes zoster.
Apple Cider Vinegar
My doctor told me that 40% of adult Americans have Herpes 1 or 2. You are definitely not alone, but I remember how I felt when I found out. Just FYI, I was told that if you have one type, you probably won't get the other. I got type 2 from my ex-husband, but my current husband has type 1. However, we are careful anyway.

Try Madison Cavanaugh's protocol with 35% solution Hydrogen Peroxide. Read her book titled "one minute cure". It works! I had HSV2 and broke out with it once a month for over three years until I discovered Madison's book.
Did you change your diet or can you eat regular? Thanks.
