Herpes 1 & 2: My husband and I have had HSV 1 [in my mouth] &2 for nearly 20 years; we are both pretty healthy [he is a Vegan, I eat chicken may be four times a year, so primarily a vegetarian diet]. Try to eliminate sodas, anything artificial and meat from your diet if possible and anything with Yeast and ALL Fungus foods like Mushrooms, Cheese from Animals. -There are too many delicious alternatives today not to.
For the last twelve months we cut all yeast from our diet, began taking Olive Leaf Extract capsules for nearly twelve months and began drinking at least 2-3 cups of Cinnamon Tea with Honey daily [which I make every week]. We also incorporated Blackstrap Molases and Apple Cider Vinegar daily [1 tbs ea. to 8 oz. of room temperature distilled water] twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. In addition to our daily liquid vitamins, minerals, greens.
Anyway, we have not had any outbreaks or symptoms in at least the last nine months where we always had two to three outbreaks a year and I believe eating healthy foods like raw fruits and vegetables in addition to Olive Leaf Extract and Cinnamon [which are both anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacteria and kills yeast].
In regards to the Cinnamon tea, I usually heat up a large pot of water boil for 15 min. add 3 to 4 cinnamon sticks, cover, add about a cup of raw and unheated honey and leave on the stove overnight and put in the refrigerator the next morning and drink all week and repeat as I get low [usually makes about a gallon and a half. It is so delicious, just make sure to brush your teeth afterwards, it will stain your teeth. ;)
