To SallySue from Chicago (ll/20/07) Hey, be happy that your diagnosis was herpes and not worse. For herpes, chicken pox, shingles or other virus, adults take 2grams L-Lysine (2000mgm) 4 times a day. Many viruses can recur, as anyone who has had a cold sore (herpes simplex) can tell you. If you restart the lysine at' the first sign of recurrence, it will be greatly improved the next day. I take L-lysine for colds, flu, cold sores, or any other viral ailment.

My doctor just called me to give me the worst news of my life. he told me I had herpes! I had no outbreaks ever, not even a cold sore, I asked him if by any chance the results could be a false positive and he told me yes. so i have to wait for 3mths to be retested. the reason i got the test was because for the last 7 years i have gotten a vaginal discharge almost like a yeast infection..I took an HIV test and that was negative so my doctor said lets take this test so that we can see if thats what it is, and sure enough I get the worst news of my life. anyone ever experienced this?

I hope you're not talking about the usual vaginal discharge that every woman has just before she's ovulating. Don't think that you have an infection or you're dirty. I certainly hope that your doctors haven't lead you on a goose chase for 7 years. I've been reading a book which thoroughly explains the "normal" patterns of monthly cervical fluids for women, in fact it's used as a means of birth control or pregnancy planning. I hope this helps you!

re: Genital Herpes on Face. Greetings! I have had'only a couple of outbreaks in the last 25 years but right now I have a very painful one on my lip as bad as my first one! Daily, I take two doses of lysine (2 500 mg. capsules each time). In the morning I take _____'s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, with lemon juice from our Meyer lemon tree and sweeten with 100% Pure Maple Syrup Grade B because germs and possibly viruses (?) do not live in pure maple syrup! I would not ever use baking soda in any form because it is harmful for the body and has something to do with aluminum. However, for the last few weeks I used a good form of honey because we were too busy to drive to where we purchase the maple syrup. (Trader Joe's) I also used to take a cool form of cayenne capsule that I will go back to doing. I really want to destroy this virus once and for all! However, maybe the only thing we can do is keep it at bay and I mainly have for the last quarter century. I hope that this helps!

L-Lysine, Oil of Oregano and Cell Food (Oxygen and hydrogen to the body). I was diagnosed with Herpes Simplex 2 one week ago, and was devasted. I am 45 yrs old and have been married 5 years. We are faithful people! I am perplexed over this because I can't imagine how I contracted this or when! Nevertheless, I came across this site and it has changed my life and mental state. I didn't think I could handle this as I am a well rounded and have always been vigilant about everything, including my encounters in my single life. I decided to come off the Valtrex right aways and began the regiment that most agreed with my spirit. I only had on lesion on the back of my lower thigh - I was first diagnosed with shingles. I have never experienced any of the symptoms I read on this site, but the one lesion and the pain was enough!! I have been on the regiment for about one week, with only having had two OB. But, my body feels completely different, I can literally feel the effects of the Oil of Oregano immediately. There is a calming affect that happens, it feel wonderful. It seem like when I take the Lysine at night I get a tingle/buring feeling in my private area, strange because I never had prior to taking it. It just seems that whenever I think about the "herpes" thing now, I immediately feel a tingle/burning sensation down there. So, if I keep my mind in a positive place and think victoriously, I control the feeling. It's wierd, but at times I can feel the creepy virus slithering its way around my nervous system! I begin to denounce that demon! The cell food give me so much assurance because the virus cannot survive when oxygen is fed to cells. I am still adjusting the full dosage, it was too strong at first. I have changed my eating habits immediately, which is a challenge. I like to eat what I like, within reasonable bounds. I know I just started this regiment, but I feel really good and like I have already beat this demon! I plan to stick with this regiment for 6 months and take another blood test. By the way does anyone have knowlege about the levels. My was only 1.18, which positive reading is >1.09. Just curious. Thanks to all who have contributed to this website and for giving all of us hope and strength. God Bless everyone and may we all be healed!

Hi. I have found that taking cell food was causing me to get outbreaks! I wasn't sure until I stopped taking it for a while then started taking it again. Sure enough, after the first day of taking it, I got an outbreak. Happens with stabilized liquid oxygen too. Not sure if the oxygen brings the virus out to kill it or what, but will not use it anymore as I don't want anymore outbreaks.

I am commenting on the discussion about herpes and artificial sweeteners from the following link:

I noticed I was getting more herpes outbreaks, and I suspected it was due to having slim fast shakes for breakfast. Just out of curiosity, I typed in "Slim Fast Herpes Outbreak" into Google and came across this discussion, where someone else mentioned they had a Slim Fast diet bar and immediately had an outbreak. I'm assuming the two are somehow related.

From the research I have done, the best herbal treatments for Genital Herpes is L-Lysine and Red Marine Algae. I also spray my groin area with Hydrogen Peroxide each night before I go to bed, and again in the morning when I wake up (about 20 mins or so before taking a shower). My doctor wants me on suppressive therapy (i.e., 500MG Valtrex per day), but I don't like the way it makes me feel, so I only take the Valtrex during outbreaks (2grams initially, and then 500MG twice daily until symptoms are gone) along with putting extra-strength Gold Bond Medicated Powder (Green Bottle) and Zovarax cream on the area during outbreaks, while spraying with hydrogen peroxide twice daily.

I've heard the following is also good for Herpes outbreaks: CoQ10, Echinachea, Pau D'Arco/Taheebo, Omega 3, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium, Zinc, Garlic, Cat's Claw, Lecithin, Organic Geranium, Lipoic Acid, Lemonbalm/Melissa Leaves, Tea Tree Oil, Multivitamins, and Orange Juice, but I can't verify any of that.

Do *NOT* use petroleum jelly, cortisone creams, or antibiotic ointments as they will make the outbreak worse or last longer.

***AVOID*** eating Gelatin, Chocolate, Carob, Oats, Whole Wheat, White Flour, Soubeans, and Wheat Germ.

Stress is the number one predictor of an outbreak, so get plenty of rest and exercise to minimize outbreaks.

I have used 2500mg of L-Lysine a day, 50mg - 100mg of zinc a day and I haven't had a outbreak since I was told I had it 1 year ago. If I feel a outbreak coming on I drink Pau De Arco Tea and put 20 drops of Pau'De Arco in there. Also if you have an outbreak if you put 3 cap fulls of bleach in some warm water in soak sores will disappear in 2 days.

I tried Lecithin. A Bechtel engineer who worked at a laboratory when he was younger told me that they grew the herpes virus. They used Lecithin to control and kill the herpes virus. He saw the herpes breakout on my face one day at work. He told me to take 2500 mg each day for a month. I asked him why he hasn't come forward with this information. He said that the FDA was too powerful to fight.

It worked for me. I haven't had a breakout in 20 years.

As I understand it, hospitals use Lecithin based baby formulas on new born babies born to women with genital herpes.

Lecithin 2500 mg a day for a month

I tried lecithin because of Freddy's comment. I started lecithin (3600 mg/day) almost 2 months ago and have not had an outbreak since. Prior to that I was getting outbreaks every week or two due to the amount of stress I am under. Stress is still there but herpes thankfully is not. You can buy it any any health food store. It comes in 1200 mg softgels and the recommended dosage is 3 softgels per day. Freddy said to take 2500 mg for a month but it has worked so well for me that I'm afraid to stop taking it because of the weekly breakouts I was having before. Occasionally I do feel a tingle in the spot where I used to break out but the blister never appears and the tingling quickly disappears. I read through all the boards and this is the only remedy I've tried and luckily it worked for me.

I purchases lecithin (soy based) for the first time this week because of Freddie's comment above. It happened so, that day I felt that burning, tingling feeling of an outbreak starting to surface, usually I never have much discomfort but when I do it's no stopping it. I decided to take 2 gel capsules 1200mg each, and IT WORKED! To my surprise that darn thing never appeared. My challenge now is to take it daily for a month and see what happens. I'm just concerned about any side effects and if it's safe to take the higher dosage over an extended period of time. I am an otherwise normal, healthy individual and from what I read this supplement is good for other health benefits. I don't want to cause any additional health concerns. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I started this week on Lecithin, 2 capsules of 1200mg each once a day and will let you guys know how I am doing.

Btw, I am not only doing this but I am doing the 3 tablespoons a day of apple cider vinegar and a 1/2 cup a day of water with 1/4 tsp of baking soda and 1/4 tsp of lemon (one of Ted's recipes).

I am also taking vitamins A, C, E, d3, L-Lysine, Zinc AND Magnesium. I am doing everything I can to get rid of it. I had 6 outbreaks in 8 months, and enough is enough.

Update: I did feel a bit of itching down there and rubbed coconut oil on my genital. So far the lecithin hasn't worked in full effect, but I am glad the coconut oil kept the herpes from creating a new outbreak.

I was underweight, so I think my immune system was compromised, and that's why the lecithin hasn't worked yet. I'll keep you guys posted, and hopefully next time I post, I will be reporting no itching or outbreaks!

Replied by Maryland

I increased the lecithin dosage from 2400mg to 4800mg and will try for another month.

I still have itching coming and going, if a lesion appears I use coconut oil and they disappear fast. I think the virus is becoming weak, when lesions appear they are usually tiny or just a bump.

I am also taking 1000mg lysine and vitamins A, E, C, D3, zinc and magnesium.

Grow some lemon balm (melissa officianalis) in your garden. It is easy and prolific in a sunny spot. Just before it flowers, cut down about 1/3 of the plant and hang it upside down in a dry, out-of-the-sun place. When it is really dry (crumbles in you hand), crumble the leaves into a bag or dish. Discard the stems (makes good compost.)

Further chop/mince the lemon balm using a food chopper to as small as you can... this should be the consistency of ground spices or as small as you can go. If you can find gelatin capsules, get some and stuff the ground lemon balm into the capsules. You will get 1/2 to 1 teaspoon into a capsule. If you can't find capsules, take a teaspoon in some yogurt - let it soften a bit first.

At the first sign of a herpes outbreak, take one or two capsules 2 or 3 times during the day for a day or two. It will avoid or greatly minimize the outbreak. For an extra boost, take 3 to 4 garlic tablets at the same time. Both lemon balm and garlic seem to stop herpes in its tracks. Lemon balm is most effective. It helps to become attuned to your body so you can detect the subtle signs before they become a problem.

I have been learning from some very informed people that Lemon Balm is much more potent if used fresh, since the volatile oils are scarce compared to other herbs. I take the fresh herb and pulse in blender with vodka. Then I put it in a jar and let it sit in a dark place, shaking it up every day or so. Just as easy and you get all the oils this way.

Treatment for Herpes

I usually take a Lime and cut it in half and squeeze the juice onto the sore then rub the lime in the sore. It is painless and the sore is usually gone the next day. It works for me. I never take or buy the pills.

Alright guys and girls, listen up! I have had an outbreak for going on a year nothing would make it go away. I would cry everyday, So much because I am so young and attractive.. I am also not sexually active at all. I dont know how I got it to be honest but I do. I guess by kissing not sure. I was giving up on life but I decided that I am not going to let this destroy me. I would come up with my own cure. Well Im 90 percent sure I have since my outbreaks have subsided 99 percent, im not gonna lie i still have 4 of those nasty things on my face but they are fading. Keep in mind that I ony started my last expirement 2 weeks ago and they have started to just completely fade after going on year with an outbreak. Heres what you do and please try this and give me feedback and tell me how it works. By the way always remeber to pray to god. He will help you in the process. for those of you who dont believe in him find him! I promise you he will help you!

First: Buy yourself a bottle of lysine. It strenghtens your immune system. Buy the 1000 miligram one and take 3 a day for 2 weeks. (to many pills to take if you take the 500 miligrams one) Its only like 9 bucks.

Second: buy enchinacea i forgot how u spell it. Its like 3 bucks. Just google it. When you buy it take 3(1500mg) your first time at 12 pm. then take 1 pill after that every hour at (500 miligrams).So youll take 1 at 1pm, 1 at 2pm and so forth. Till your last hour of bed time. (always take one before u go to bed!) Do this method for 3 days and you will notice your herpes fading quickly.

third: get a bottle of calaclear lotion. It cost a dollar or 2 at the dollar store. Also buy a bottle of vitamin C at 500 mg and a bottle of peroxide. The peroxide is like 50 cents. Now what you do is take the calaclear lotion and squeeze it all into a cup. Then take 30 vitamin C pills ( thats 15000mg) and crush them in a zip lock bag. Crush them to a powder. Now you take the powdered vitamin c and pour it into the cup of the calaclear lotion and mix it all together and nothing else!, this recipe doesnt cause any redness! THen stir it up and put a foil with a rubberband around the top of the cup so no dust or dirt gets in but air does. then poke holes on top so the calaclear lotion can dry up. It should turn into a clear or yellowish color and act as some what of that candy like fruit roll up in a way.It should feel the way a contact lens feels. Then when it dries up you should be able to tear it to pieces after like 3 days. Now take a piece of it and get a foil and pour peroxide on it. Then take the piece of the CVC (calaclear with vitamin C mix)and put it in the peroxide for 30 seconds ,( now the piece should be the size of your sore. )Now take it out of the peroxide and put it on your sore. It should stick. The peroxide will break through the sores and then after 20 - 30 min the CVC should start melting into the sore. And you will notice redness and the bump and everything start to fade. You should never pop a sore. This method will elimate it. Then just peel off and repeat if necassary. Do this everyday if you want till there all gone. Trust me it works I hate herpes and Im sure you do to. Oh yeah and stay away from heat and stay in cool places. Also sleep in front of a fan facing your face and pray to god everynight before you go to bed you will notice everything will be better love you guys! And try this I didnt do all this typing for nothing lol j/k. But try my method it works. Sorry about the typos im very tired and sleepy well good night and god bless.

I have read through all of these testimonials, but have not read anything to support the use of MMS for herpes. Can any of you give some feedback on that? I know a number of people that are plagued with this and want to know if anyone feels 'cured' by using MMS.

Hello Mary,

I have no personal experience with using MMS for shingles (Herpes Zoster), but shingles is caused by a virus and MMS is said to kill out bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi, and others.

My thinking is that if MMS can kill out the genetically engineered virus (HIV+) causing AIDS, it should find killing out an unaltered virus like Herpes Zoster. it would certainly be worth the trial since current thinking is that Herpes Zoster is the same virus that caused chicken pox in youth, just sitting there in your nerve endings all those years to create havoc with shingles. If MMS kills the virus, you shouldn't get shingles again unless you are re-exposed to it.

I would be careful of MMS. I am not a doctor but I have an extensive chemistry background. The problem I have with MMS is the CL atom. Yes chlorine. The science of ionization of the 2 oxygen molecules in MMS is the same as the chemistry of Hydrogen peroxide. So I would try peroxide therapy before MMS. Look at the results of peroxide and they should be the same as expected with MMS.

Replied by Robert Henry

JOE, I'd like to expand this discussion about Chlorine and its effects. In the paper industry I spent 40 years in many mills through out the South bleaching pulp from brown to various degrees of white.

First, chlorine is an element and MMS is primarily chlorine dioxide, a compound. They are not the same and do not react the same. Other chlorine compounds used to bleach pulp are Sodium Hypochlorite and Calcium hypochlorite ( Clorox ). These are chlorine compounds that also react differently. The temperature, time and pH of the reactions control how drastically they take place. Other chemicals used to bleach pulp are Hydrogen Peroxide and Oxygen, which do not contain chlorine but both do contain oxygen. They too react differently from each other and from chlorine compounds.

All these chemicals are talked about on this site everyday, and they are used in our body's to obtain a certain reaction. We can not control our body's temperature but can influence our pH. In bleaching pulp, the lower the pH the more drastic the reaction and I think you can say that about your body. Not all our body's have the same pH, thus each person will react differently. Our temperatures are about the same so that is not a factor.

After saying all this, I think I can draw the conclusion that chemical reactions in your body are milder if your body is in an alkaline pH range as Ted keeps harping on. Apple Cider Vinegar is malic acid and baking soda is alkaline. Combining the two gets you close to neutral. I personally think that getting your body out of the acid pH range is the most effective you can do to improve your health. It changes your reactions to various nutrients you consume and how the bacteria in your bowels function. And no, I did not do a double blind study before I said this.

One last comment, Cloudy ACV is malic acid with all the enzymes and original trace compounds . Clear super market ACV is distilled malic acid and is not the same. White Vinegar is acetic acid, a completely different animal.

Sorry if I sound preachy but that's the way you are when you get old.

JOE, as the little boy told the little girl when she told him she was pregnant........... EXCUSE ME.

I did not address directly your post in my first reply.

Our Chelation Doctor tells me that the way your white corpuscles attack foreign invaders is to produce Hydrogen
Peroxide naturally.

So I think you gave the poster good advice. Do Hydrogen Peroxide before you do Chlorine Dioxide.

We do hydrogen peroxide intravenously to build up our immune system in-lieu of the mercury contained flu shots.

I've been diagnosed with GH for little over a year now (my fiancée had had GH for 6-7) We both came into our relationship with GH from prior partners. There is hope having GH AND a normal relationship!

Anyway.....I was put on Valtrex immediately upon my diagnosis. They always say your first outbreak is your worst....well the one I'm currently on is a close second. We both have had small outbreaks over the last year we've been together; we thought that one was free and outbreak free, passed it on to the other. It's been a pretty crappy cycle. I stopped taking the Valtrex (and it's generic) for not only how ungodly expensive it is, but because the side effects are terrible. I know that I will be one of the people that will say we both don't want to be on a pill for the rest of our lives.

I have tried coconut oil to the affected areas, no luck. I have tried rubbing alcohol (holy hell the burning was terrible), and peroxide. I have also tried Lysine (not since I've been diagnosed with GH). I plan on trying the Lysine and Bach remedies for sure.

I have changed my diet, I get daily exercise, and I try to stay away from as many sick people as possible. Having GH means that we ALL have an auto - immune disorder, we stay sicker longer and when when we're sick....we get outbreaks. I have also noticed that simply changing your body wash, is also a huge difference too. I used to use body wash; but after having back to back outbreaks, I have been using Dial antibacterial bar soap during my showers. And that alone has helped my outbreaks. Females have more outbreaks than males. So we have to kill as much bacteria down there as possible.

I also have psoriasis, which is genetic and another autoimmune disorder. Many women suffer from endometriosis, and if you're one of those unlucky women like me...nothing has worked. I have noticed that when my hormones are off, I have an outbreak. This last one was because of my Lupron shot, I'm having a forced menopause at 26 because my "monthly visitor" has became so excruciating painful...that I'm on a shot to kill the cells in my ovaries.

Since I have been on this last outbreak for the past 2 almost 3 weeks, I am using witch hazel. Specifically the Tuck's (or walmart brand) Hemorrhoidal Pads when I go to the bathroom. The witch hazel has helped shrink the lesions, and will eventually dry up. Since I have been using the wipe pads the last 4 days, I can now use the ladies room in peace! No burning or itching! The last 4 days, I have noticed less itching, hardly any burning or itching, and the sores are going away. The pads have witch hazel, and a hemmroidal astringent in it. So there is some type of cooling sensation, and some numbing. I'm not saying it's a cure, but witch hazel does help with the sores and bathroom usage. I got the equate pads at walmart. 200 pads for $7.

After reading some of the awesome suggestions on here, I plan on trying the Bach Flower remedy soon for the both of us.

Also, you can spread it from your genitals to your butt crack (and sometimes inside) if you use the same wipe, piece of toilet paper, etc. Be careful with your hand washing and cuts. Herpes isn't just a virus, it's in your bloodstream. Don't share toothbrushes, razors, shower loofahs, towels.

Hope this all helps!

I've suffered from it horribly for 28 yrs. What works and is guaranteed to work is L-lysine. I take 1,000mg morning and night in powdered veg caps. I haven't had an outbreak in 2 yrs or since I started taking it diligently. If you do have an outbreak, take echinacea/goldenseal combo, red clover (helps with fever & inflammation), elderberry, acidolphilus, pau d' arco, burdock. I don't know about Ted and the snake oil things he's talking about. I know L-lysine is inexpensive, and easy. You cannot cure yourself of HSV, it's in your DNA, there's no way to remove it, sorry to tell you. I would get so sick, have horrid fevers, be in and out of consiousness, bad sick. Females have it worse with mucous membranes down there. I use tea tree oil on sores, it dries them out. Tea tree is absorbed into the layers of skin and helps keep it from getting infected, and dries them out fast. It's also cooling to me. You can also use witch hazel, it has antiseptic and pain killing properties. Most importantly, keep it clean and dry. I used aloe baby wipes. Something else I figured out after a few years of hell with this....... Ibuprofen can take away not only the fever, but that sick, puking feeling, and seems to help it heal faster. I found immediate relief, but for me ibuprofen is a no no these days, I have gastritis from taking it for many years. So eat when taking it, never take on an empty stomach.

Tea tree oil diluted with olive oil and applied to sores should work well. I bought from Trader Joe's a body wash with Tea Tree and eucalyptus to kill any shedding the virus may do while dormant. I also take Lysine daily and have maybe one break out a year.

All the best to you :)

I stopped using all those supplements I had mentioned previously in a post I submitted months ago that I had asked ted about.

I use: The herbs that belong to the "onion" family twice daily(look at my previous post about two people who are herpes free after using it and changing their diet). I boil and strain or u can drink as is.

Spirulina powder twice daily, sometimes a little more.

fresh lemon in water to remove toxins and raise ph

Lots of cinnamon drink I make every few days.

I use to buy pure echinacea root(dried) from health food store, but after severe breakout of hives I stopped using and is trying to get rid of dark spots. I drank too much. When I drank a little it never bothered me. I would still recommend, but do not drink too much. $7 an oz at health food store in bklyn.

I eat lots of flounder which can stop a break out really fast or prevent OB. I have proof of that. Read about it in book.

To prepare fish: do not season to cook. When finished add seasonings if u prefer. Loaded with lysine. The internet said catfish, cod and tilapia too, but I stick to flounder since it worked for someone. I use other fish if I can't afford flounder. Other times, I season it, but I make sure to haveit the way he recommended a few times a wk. Change your diet. I am not using any meds. My last major OB was christmas of 2011, prior to using all of the above and changing diet. Avoid processed foods. Read my other post. I use abreva daily on mouth and around so I do not get OB. Once in a while a little pimple around mouth, but it never gets bigger and never pop. U will think it is a regular pimple. That fish works! Will get retested to see where I am.

I got herpes since 2 years ago. My wife gave it to me... She doesn't know that she had it... Last year after blood test, they found I had Genital Herpes 1 & 2...

I don't want to take the Dr medicine, I prefer to use plants. On the begining, I had Breakout maybe every 3 month, since last summer, it's almost every month. and now, I get another one after 2 weeks!!! F......

In general, after 6/8 days, everything is gone. That doesn't hitch, that doesn't hurt. What I use its Apple cider vinegar. It's better than nothing. Also I do echinacea Tincture, it's good for your immune system. I order Olive leaves, but they are dry, so I don't know if the property is the same...

Last week I found that the Sumac Extract was apparently use to cure herpes.

I give you that link but I can't found the original one...

Also I know I'm kind of Stress, so I'm sure that doesn't help! And since I'm in US, my alimentations not very healthy, but I try my best...

What I was thinking, it's to do a cure for blood cleansing. I mean, I do my own treatment for 3/4 month. I'm doing spiritual practice and healing, and I'm sure if you heal your body and your mind ( soul) on the same time, you can have some wonderful result. But it's a lot of work... But 4 month in our life, it's nothing, right?

On a begining I wanted to go to amazonia with a shaman for starting the process, but first I think I'll try to do by myself. After some research I found that we need to avoid :
Oil, no fat
Pork meat
Milk products
Meat except chicken and some fish
Acid or sweet fruit (you can eat bananas and apples)
Cold water or ice
Strong sun
Sexual activity

Also need to practice sport activity, yoga, meditation, etc etc.

Use plants as tea, salad, capsules, You can take bath, with herbs inside, like a big tea and you let yourself inside for awhile.... I use to take bath with 1 cup of ACV, 1 TSP of baking soda, 1 big tsb of epsom Salt and some florida water, its good for your skin and also for spiritual cleansing. Or, the best is to make the same mix in a big bowl and after your shower, you put on yourself the mix, and you let it dry, don't use the towel! It's good to do it the summer time! Don't need to wait too long!

If some of you tried the diet for 3 or 4 month, I would like to hear about the result. And when I'll finish mine, I'll let you know.

I would like to ask you a question about how come did we get it? Do you think things happen for a reason? I mean not just cause we [had sex] with no condom or thing like this but more like a lesson, something to learn... What do you think?

Thank you so much for read my post and sorry if my english is not perfect.

I wish you all good thing for this new year and lot of good energy healing for fight against that s......
