I purchases lecithin (soy based) for the first time this week because of Freddie's comment from 2010. 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 tried lecithin because of Freddy's comment from 2010 below. 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 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
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.

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!
I drink lemon water to prevent the outbreaks, still outbreak free. I did have another minor OB when I started slacking on drinking the lemon water. I am 100% sure this is helping me. I have never used it directly on a OB though.
For GH, drinking Lemon Water every day is the only thing that has worked for me.
Sounds simple but I definitely has been a miracle for me.
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.
Despues de probar todos los remedios posibles el unico que evita un brote a la primera señal en mi que tengo una cepa muy resistente es la miel de manuka mgo 80 osea de 30. La pongo 2 veces al dia y uso una toalla sanitaria para no embarrarme y no llega a salir la llaga.Lo hago 3 dias seguidos tarde y noche.Mejor que el antiviral y no es necesario tomarlo si hace esto abortara el brote.Habia probado aceites, lisina, lecitina, agua oxigenada, vinagre de manzana, sabila, monolaurina, hongo ganoderma, multivitaminicos, valtrex, aciclovir, flores de bach, prunella.Pruebe esto y compartalo.No lo cura definitivo pero evita de manera natural un brote a los primeros sintomas y no necesita tomar antiviral.

After trying all the possible remedies the only one that avoids an outbreak at the first sign in my that I have a very resistant strain is manuka honey mgo 80 osea de 30. I put it 2 times a day and use a sanitary napkin to avoid embarrassment and the sore does not come out. I do it 3 days in a row late and night. It is better than the antiviral and it is not necessary to take it if this does abort the outbreak. I had tried oils, lysine, lecithin, hydrogen peroxide, apple vinegar, sabila, monolaurin, ganoderma fungus, multivitamins, valtrex, acyclovir, bach flowers, prunella.
Try this and share it. It does not cure definitively but it naturally avoids an outbreak to the first symptoms and does not need to take antiviral.
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.
