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.

I've just started taking Monolaurin for an HSV-2 OB. Haven't had one in over three years. Not sure if I'm using the right amount, but it doesn't seem to be slowing or curing the sores. Has anyone else had experience using Monolaurin?
EC: OB = Outbreak
I've suffered from GH for two years. My outbreaks, although not very sever, would flair up monthly. Sometimes back to back. I've tried most of the remedies recommended on this site, but they mostly aleved the symptoms (ACV, coconut oil), but I wanted to prevent the flair ups; not just aleve the symptoms. After oregano oil caused a HUGE flair up I decided to do some more research and have found the perfect combination for me. I take (2) 990 mg of monolaurin acid along with (2) 500 mg of L-Lysine a day and viola no more flair ups! Monolaurin Acid has been studied and tested . "The monolauric acid essentially disintegrates the herpes virus within its own cell walls." I recommend anyone suffering from this terrible virus to research the effects of momolaurin acid. It really works. Going on 5 months symptom free and I refuse to go back!
I have had genital herpes since I was a teenager, but seldom had outbreaks until I was in my forties and fifties (I am female and now 57).
I tried many remedies, but recently I decided to use a multi-pronged approach to the problem. Every time I would have an outbreak, I took massive doses of vitamin C, including a lypospheric vitamin C that gets into the system very quickly (expensive, but worth it) and plenty of plain old ascorbic acid spaced throughout the day. I also took a pricey beta glucan supplement (1 or 2 doses per day on empty stomach), olive leaf extract (2 doses per day), egg yolk lecithin (1 dose per day), lauricidin (potent form of lauric acid - 2 to 3 doses per day), oil of oregano capsules (2 doses per day) and red marine algae (2 doses per day). I would also stay home and mix up some liquid oil of oregano with some good quality castor oil and put this all over my pubic area and leave it on. Even though taking all these things didn't immediately stop outbreaks, I could tell that the virus was getting weaker and weaker. You can't really attack the virus itself very effectively until it shows itself with symptoms and attempts to replicate. I think the real kicker was when I ordered some very potent oil of oregano that comes from Greece. Ever since my last round of using all the anti-virals, plus diluting the Grecian oregano oil with castor oil and putting it on the pubic area for a day or two in a row, I have been outbreak free. I also tested the waters by eating lots of peanut butter, chocolate, coconut (coconut flesh, not oil, is high in arginine), drinking alcohol, coffee, red wine, basically any and everything that could possibly trigger an outbreak - and nary a tingle! All you that are suffering out there and feeling hopeless - I tell you - it is possible to overcome this virus!!!! Don't give up. Any of the products I mentioned here can be purchased from Amazon.
The Greek oil of oregano takes time (about 6 or 8 weeks) to get to the states, but it is cheap. The beta glucan is about 75 a bottle, but I haven't even had to use a whole bottle of it yet. The lypospheric vitamin C is 30 a box for 30 packets. The other supplements are more moderate in price, I think. And plain old drugstore vitamin C is not expensive. Just be persistent and consistent. You can overcome this. Take as much vitamin C in ascorbic acid form as your system can tolerate. And pay attention to the directions for taking any of these supplements - some MUST be taken on an empty stomach in order to work properly (lypospheric vitamin C and beta glucan, for example) and some work better when taken with food. The lecithin and the lauricidin are excellent for lipid coated viruses - helps destroy that lipid barrier and then the other supplements can go to town on the virus.
I have found something even better. My last outbreak was a BAD one. I had a high fever because of it. I immediately went to the kitchen and took one tablespoon of l-lysine powder mixed with one teaspoon of vitamin c powder and a tablespoon of genuine new Zealand manuka honey mixed into a Luke warm half cup of purified water.
Made a turmeric, chicken and vegetable soup which is all I ate for the next three days and made up a small mixture of manuka honey, turmeric and vitamin c paste which I then slathered on to my entire vagina, I used a sanitary pad to stop the honey leakage and put on black pants (this stuff stains), laid a towel down and put myself to bed for the day while I ate bowls of turmeric, chicken and vegetable soup.
My soreness was completely gone by morning and by the next day I couldn't even tell I'd had an outbreak.
I was amazed. I've suffered for 10+ years, every outbreak lasting 7-12 days.
And now, thanks to my tireless research and trials, I have put together ingredients that cleared my outbreak within 24 hours.
I hope this helps someone.
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.
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.
Hi everyone! I was reading all your comment, and that make me want to talk about my experience...
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......
I have to write and thank everyone who has posted information to the this site. I was having Genital Herpes outbreaks more and more frequently until it was virtually one on top of the other. What a miserable way to live. This site saved my life, I swear.
Here are the things which have helped to me on my way to being GH OB-free.
- I had no idea that artificial sweeteners were such a trigger. I was consuming so MUCH in an effort ot be healthier, ha! so I eliminated those right away and it made a HUGE difference. after a certain period of time I tried to reintroduce non-aspartame sweetners and found that *only* natural based sweetners are safe for me (like stevia).
- I started taking l-lysine, 1000 mgs 2-3 times per day. (I think this also helped keep me from contracting this terrible cold and flu virus that has had everyone around me on their backs for a week plus at a time! )
- ACV, HP, and/or tea tree oil used topically when the outbreak starts helps dry it out quickly.
- I stopped using the acycolvir my doc prescribed when I felt an outbreak coming on because all these natural remedies work BETTER AND FASTER for me.
Seriously, I cannot thank everyone enough. I hope anyone else who comes in search of information here has as much positive experience as I have. You all are awesome and generous. Thank you thank you thank you!
I have found that taking 500 mg of L-lysine, 1-3 doses of 45 mg of Oregano Oil, 500-1000 mg of Olive Leaf, 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar 3 times daily, 18 drops of ChlorOxygen twice a day, eating raw foods, and avoiding dairy, red meats, sugar, alcohol, etc has helped A LOT. Also, if you're having an outbreak, taking red marine algae for 60 days will clear you of outbreaks almost permanently. Eating any kind of seaweed such as dulse, kelp, etc or any kind of algae will definitely help. It's also necessary to do any cleanses such as Candida cleanse, Liver & Gallbladder cleanse, and a Parasite cleanse.
So I was misdiagnosed and had a genital herpes outbreak from hsv-1, which is uncommon, for 3. 5 weeks. It was awful... I looked up all the wrong remedies on earth clinic bcuz some dumb doctor made a wrong assumption. Well finally saw a gyno and was tested by blood for 1 & 2 and a culture for just 2. Well those lab results weren't back until 6 days later... I didn't have that kind of time, I was about to lose it so I got on here and this is what I came up with. I had done everything to eradicate something bacterial, so I just assumed I had herpes (viral) and got to work. Turns out I had hsv-1, which like 70-90% of adults have, but it affected me differently.
These things did not fully fix the outbreak, I think because it had gone on too long, but after 48 hours, I was 50-60% better, the first relief I had in 3. 5 weeks... I was thrilled. After the doctor called, I did get acyclovir, which has finished the job. I don't plan to have to use it again, though.
So I was doing a lot of stuff, but what really made the difference was:
1 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil 3x a day - antiviral
1500mg lysine 3x a day - higher ratio of lysine to arginine prevents virus from replicating.. I used Super Lysine , has some echinacea and garlic as well
1000mg vitamin c 3x a day
1500mg olive leaf extract mixed in water 3x a day
These things 3 times a day and you will be in business. I also put coconut oil on my business after using the bathroom. I am a big believer in having a double or triple threat approach so I can't say with certainty which thing mattered most, but I will say this... After a day, I could tell a HUGE difference. I am almost out of the woods finally!!! This stuff works, and I imagine that if you caught it earlier, would completely knock it out. So to all who are in misery, I feel ya and keep your head up! So quit reading and go to the vitamin store!
Herpes Type 2 - BHT, ACV, Intravenous Vit C (IVC)
Tried the ACV - works with shingles also. Drank it before bed and in morning.
Symptoms (itchyness, pain)abated after applying it topically to sores. Stings on open ones but the pain stops after a moment. I usually get IVC, 30 grams every two weeks as I have continous shingles as well as Herpes( on lower back). This boosts immune system and cures the sores within two days.(I sometimes cant go so the ACV is good to have around.)
I take multiple supplements( too many to list), lysine, zinc, a herbal antiviral mixture and daily 2x, Hydrogen peroxide, food grade, 3% diluted to 25%, about 12 drops.
There is multiple reports on the web on the effectiveness of BHT for Herpes 2. I cannot get it in Australia, so have not tried it yet. Apparently, it dissolves the lipid coat of the virus , that hides it from the Destroyer cells of your body.Then , it can be attacked and killed.
Dirk Pearson says in his book that he has taken it since the 70's and has no attacks, except when he once stopped using it. His partner has never had a attack.
BHT in VERY large doses, is bad for the liver, but the usual dose is too small to do any harm. (DP has not had any toxicity problems long term). It is to be avoided if you have liver problems.)
I hope someone tries this, I cant wait to go to USA and get some!! Hope you all get better :)
Where to start...I was infected with genital Herpes the first time I had sexual intercourse...which I consider more of a blessing than a misfortune. I've never known sex any other way. I feel that because I've been infected since my teenage years I've had the opportunity to grow with my herpes. First thing is that you have to have open communication with your Herpes such as "Okay big H, we're in this together for the long haul...so stop acting a fool on my skin!" This is a good first step to being outbreak free. The second most important thing is to tell people about it (GASP!) your real friends will remain your real friends and offer you support and advice. Plus, you will be the one they turn to if it ever happens to them (imagine if we all had someone to turn to when it happened to us!) I think that guilt and shame only worsen outbreaks. The third and most easy to obtain treatment of herpes is deep breathing. The second I begin to feel the tingling, I meditate and deeply and breathe oxygen to my groin area. It will increase blood flow to the area and stop itching and tingling at once. I also have used olive leaf extract in conjunction with red marine algae with wonderful results. Note: i run marathons and make it my running mantra to deliver oxygen to my groin region and the base of my spine. I never have outbreaks during training season and occasionally get them in winter when I've been indulging over the holidays.

i use a phototherapie-stick for labial herpes, works really well!
for genital herpes, though, it is not strong enough, but contributes to the healing.
i got rid of my last OB really quickly thanks to a combination of remedies found on this wonderful website :
i put on a cotton swabbed with ACV for a few hours, then 4 min of photo-therapie.
afterwords i applied a mixture of teatree-oil & gelee royale before going to bed.
the next day the herpes was gone, there was only a red spot, on which i applied again teatree-oil & gelee royale.
now i'm taking lecithin and ACV (2 TS in a glass of water, over the day), stayed OB-free when i got my period and throughout a bad cold.
thanks to everyone!!!
