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.

  1. 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).
  2. 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! )
  3. ACV, HP, and/or tea tree oil used topically when the outbreak starts helps dry it out quickly.
  4. 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.

You mention two things I was curious about red marine algae, do u know the latin name for the ones you suggest? Palmaria palmata is the most common dulse, but there are many. Which parasite test and cleanse do u recommend? how is candida related to herpes? Thx so much!!!

Please, READ MY POST: Buy "Ravensara essential oil" and "Tamanu oil". Make sure its RAVENSARA not Ravintsara!

Mix it 50/50. Apply it twice a day to the affected area. It does NOT hurt. After one day, the lesions look much fainter.

It takes 3 days to clear the lesions completely. After two more outbreaks, every other month, I did it the same way, my outbreaks stopped. This was 2 years ago.

Try it, don't waste your time with other stuff, because I tried it all. Yust do it!

P.S. Try to avoid re-infection by treating your partner with the same mixture.

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 :)
Love, KB

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 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 cant tell you how much hope this post gave me. Everything you said was perfect. Im a highly competitive runnner and Athlete. After being diagnosed, dealing with non stop outbreaks the first 3months, financial stressors that wont end, gaining 20 lbs, and trying to mend a severly broken heart, your post is my light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for my newfound hope...

What great responses! I must commend both of you for your courageous outlook. I have experienced herpes for many years. Exercising and yoga does strengthen the immune system - I didn't have an outbreak for at least 5 years. At that time, I stopped exercising! Minimize stress and you will indeed counteract breakouts. Stay encouraged.

Replied by Jt

I have to agree with Newhope, this really gave me some encouragement. I have walked around feeling guilty and ashamed knowing what I have ever since I found out. I was diagnosed with HSV-1 but feared that I also had 2. I've had outbreaks and looked on google images to compare my symptoms and the sheer terror of what I found probably didn't help! I told my partner about my results with a heavy heart and she took the news pretty well. I still worry abput things getting much worse but I had no idea about natural remedies. I have been at a point where I don't want to go through life like this anymore but after reading all of these posts I feel like there is hope for us. I'm still not sure how to talk openly about my concerns with my partner about preventing outbreaks. It's a shameful conversation to have even though it's a one we have had small talks about. Any tips?

Thank you so much!

I have read all of your stories.

I am 53 and have had our little problem since age 23. I have learned to live with it. Taken ZrX prescribed by my doctor years ago. I went many years without anything happening. After my divorce I started seeing somebody that I respect more than anything in this world. The last person I wanted to tell. The first person I should've told.

So far all is well and I go through very hard times explaining I just cannot at times. I must say, life has been very hard. I have been looking for another solution other than mentioned medication above. I just ordered pure organic oregano oil. Three drops under the tongue mixed with a little olive oil for the duration of 3 to 5 minutes.

I have read many blogs on this. This is a terrible thing to live with but it is nothing to be ashamed of. I have not been with many people. It just happened. They say that there is a cure on the rise. If so I will be first in line. Until then know that you can have a normal life. Be honest with your partner


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.

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!!!

neem oil cured herpes

A very cheap bottle of neem oil that I found in a non-chain Asian pharmacy has turned out to be one of the best purchases I have ever made. Most effective in halting outbreaks of Herpes that Tea tree oil has been quite good at too but this was better. Radically improved the condition off all my skin even facial. The bottle said it was 100pc neem oil, I added 2tsp to 100ml liquid shower gel. Add to mouth wash once in a while.

I suffered from back to back breakouts in the vaginal area, sometimes twice or three times a month for almost 10 years. It would always happen around the time of my period and sometimes would occur after having sex. I am now so happy to say that I have not had an outbreak in forever. I honestly cannot even remember the last time I had one. It's been at least a year I would say. Here is what I did. I took the Humaworm cleanse and was outbreak free for about 4 months, then it came back. When the outbreak came back I was really really angry. First, I believe in the power of the mind. I was sick and tired of having outbreaks and I just got so angry, so mad, and decided that this virus would no longer live inside my body. I became determined to find a cure and no longer accepted that there was no cure. A cure existed on God's green earth and it was mine to claim. I am a firm believer in the law of attraction and the Secret. So I found a site that said to use DMSO and another site that said Neem was an antiviral. So I put a small amount of DMSO on the blister and then immediately put Neem oil on the area. Please be sure to wash your hands first and to wash the area before applying DMSO. Then I got some DMSO and placed it at the back of my spine and put some Neem oil in that area as well. Well I don't know if it was the positive thinking or the DMSO or the Neem. But since that day, I have not had a single outbreak.

Neem Seed Oil

Posted by Fighting (Florida) on 10/27/2015

Recently I contracted genital HSV 1. I've been doing a lot of research as how to fight this virus. In another website I read of a couple of cases where people ingested organic neem oil (cold pressed) while continued on a strict healthy diet and following Dr. Hulda Clark's various cleanses. They both had stated that they were cured.

They both ingested 3-4 Tablespoons of Neem seed oil twice a day (about 4 hours apart each time) for two days consecutively. It seemed as if they would only do it again month apart given that the Neem Oil is harsh on the body.

I have read that consuming the neem seed oil can be harmful to the body (I guess it depends on what kind of body). Has anyone tried this and had success in killing off this horrible virus?

To Fighting, (Florida) ---

Neem seed oil should not ingested but used topically, that is, trans dermally. But the neem leaves powder can be used as a tea, or better, in capsules.

Such large amounts will derange the doshas and create serious problems. In moderation, it improves the immune system among numerous benefits.

For your particular problem it may also be worthwhile to research turpentine and visit Walter Last's website. If there is a weight issue, Neem will help, but if weight loss is no problem, caution is advised. Neem will do many things but it would be advisable to find out your particular dosha and then proceed with caution.

Just a suggestion and wishing good success. Namaste, Om

What do you mean by dosha?

Replied by Om
(Hope, Bc Canada)

Fighter (Florida) ---

If me, I would google "Ayurveda - what is my dosha". That will most likely lead to a very interesting questionnaire about your person, habits, looks etc.

When you have done that, you will know your body's chemical composition with which you were born. Then you can learn to balance your dosha and be ahead of all the westerners that have to fit "one shirt for all". You will know what foods, what recreation and personal disciplines are most conducive for good health.

I hope this is not too complicated for you and I wish you "perfect balancing".

Namaste, Om

Olive Leaf and Turmeric

Posted by Jane (London, Uk) on 02/09/2015

I am taking Olive Leaf extract for genital herpes with the hope of eradicating the virus completely from my body. My question is, I have also read that turmeric is good for keeping the virus suppressed, if I took Turmeric with Olive Leaf would I be making it more difficult for the Olive Leaf to rid the virus from my body? Because I want to draw the h virus out, hiding/suppressing it would suggest a push - pull between taking the Turmeric and Olive Leaf? Any thoughts?

Secondly, I am disappointed that anyone who claims to have been cured by using Oxygen or some other remedy is not returning to the forum (I suppose they don't return to look at the posts, or earth clinic doesn't send alerts to their email) but it would give us all a lot more hope if we knew that years later people are really free from this virus and also be great to be advised of particulars, such as brand, dose and so on.

Massive, miserable outbreak had been going on for at least 6 weeks when I finally decided to try Olive Leaf extract. Itching, burning, misery nearly gone by the next day. I didn't mess around and went to the health food store and bought the best grade I could find. Taking (2) 900 mg+ per serving every day. Take between meals on an empty stomach. Symptoms often return if I miss a few days. Cost is about .76 cents per day.

I honestly had no clue that I had herpes. I didn't have any major outbreaks, maybe tingling but nothing serious enough to think I had herpes. I was absolutely shocked when I found out I had it.

I was reading online that Olive Leaf Extract was good for fighting herpes so I started taking it. After I started taking it I actually starting having more issues with my herpes. I read online that people usually get more but less severe outbreaks when they take Olive Leaf Extract b/c the herpes is fighting the medicine. It was annoying but I knew it must be effective. It was mainly a bump here or there before my period started, and not every month. It wasn't severe, just annoying b/c I didn't have any issues prior to taking Olive Leaf.

I started to combine Oil of Oregano with the Olive Leaf Extract and the combo worked really well together. I take the pill form in both. I stopped taking both about two months ago and I haven't had any issues with my herpes and I feel good. I'm going to take an ionic foot detox to see how that works also.

I just like to thank you for your postings on this website. I tried a patented brand of colloidal silver that I tried for colds stomach problems ETC and it worked wonderfully. And then combined that with olive LEAF extract with high amounts of oleuropein and its been 5 count them 5 months since a outbreak. the only effect at first with this certain brand of colloidal silver is after taking it i had flu like symptoms for about 3 days. The company told me that was common in some people because its the sudden killing of the germs and pathogens in your body but after a build up of the 2 in my body I have not had another symptom so in closing i still take it every day just in case and i'd like to say thank you and god bless you have my email anybody can ask me anything I would be glad to help have a blessed day.

Can I ask, what dosage do you take? For a while I was getting the odd outbreak... Fairly small and not painful, just itchy. However, for nearly a month now I've been getting one outbreak after the other. One lesion goes and another appears almost instantly. I had a laser hair removal session on my bikini line a couple of days before the first lesion. I have since heard that this can trigger an outbreak but I have never suffered like this. Getting very concerned now. Here's hoping... London, England

Hey guys. Here is an update from my recent post of man cured after six months of drinking herbs in the onion family. I did my research and found that Garlic, chives, scallions, leeks, onion and shallots are all part of the onion family. I heard that the doctors ran more test and found no signs of the HSV 1 and 2. He warns that we DO NOT drink excessive amounts of the 'onion' drink since it can cause a serious drop in blood pressure which he experienced in his early days of drinking it after having to be rushed to the hospital. He was then advised to drink one cup fresh morning and night.

I wish he can post on this site himself since I cannot disclose his painful experience and what led him to get help and how he came upon meeting this woman who gave him remedy. All of this info I am relating comes from what he told my friend who lives out of state. She saw his condition and never knew what it was until he told her. She knew of herpes but did not know the extent of the disease. After he told her, she then told him to let her know exactly what he did so she can help me.

The taste is not pleasant and most days I do not have all of the stuff, but I stick with the basic onion and garlic, bring water to a boil, add and turn off. I let sit for a little while, strain, cool and add to GLASS jug and put in fridge. I make it every other day or so. If I have time, I would do it fresh daily. My own analysis made me figure out why this works: Onion and garlic are antiviral and also is alkaline which raises ph. Thank You!

Replied by Annonymous

Hi. U drink as desired. He is completely cured. U blend all of the onion family products. I boil it but not to lose it's strength. In fact, after blending I decide how much liquid to add. Bring to a boil and as soon as it does, I turn off stove, cover and let sit to avoid it losing its strength. I squeeze with cheese cloth and drink 3 cups daily if I'm at home. Use your discretion and monitor your organs since this is strong. Use organic only.

Flounder is excellent as well, but it affected my liver. Instead of drinking it straight, I make a soup with it. It still works but seasoning it I think weakens the lysine that affects organs or damages them.

Hey y'all. Got some new info for those suffering from GH (genital herpes). Just got a call from a friend in another state who met a young man who has GH and got severe outbreaks even on his face etc. She saw it firsthand. He tried docs but nothing really helped. He met an Indian woman who told him to use everything he could find in the onion family. For six months he has been boiling lots of onion, garlic, (celery and even thyme as well) and much more. After six months he got retested and it was negative. The doc is shocked and told him there is no cure but he recommends he should get retested again in two weeks. My friend asked him because she wanted to help others. I do not know if he changed his diet. I also heard he used tumeric as well. Just found this info out the week of December 11, 2011. This is hopeful. I am a firm believer that everything we need is already in the earth.

Update on "onion" cure for herpes. Two people have been cured. This is not a make up story, but the truth. The young man who got cured has been spreading the word so he told this other woman who got cured sooner than he did. Here is an update: Both of these people have been eating healthy after finding out they have the HP so it was easier or faster to be cured. Although they never knew each other and not being related, they do not eat anything processed, but ate only organic. No meat nor fish, greasy foods, etc. Be warned that too much of the onion mixture will lower your blood pressure. Google everything in the onion family. They have experienced low BP. From my understanding the young man has been helping others by spreading the word. The overall key is proper diet. My last severe OB was in December in the genital prior to learning of the mixture. I drink one cup in the morning and one at nights. I blend all the stuff, bring water to a boil and turn stove off and add mixture so it will not over cook. I let cool and squeeze with towel and place in jug in fridge for a few days(not too stale). I also take spirulina powder daily which raises ph. I can't afford organic, I wash everything in white vinegar and salt. These folks ate ground foods and fruits and have continued to maintain a healthy lifestyle. After being hospitalized for low BP, the doctor advised her to stop drinking stuff and when retested she only had a trace. Now she is all clean after taking repeated test. I will get retested in August. My friend in georgia knows the them so she keeps me updated. She met the young man first and then told the woman she knows had the same thing. She saw their faces so this is all based on evidence. She is the one who gave me ingredients she got from youngman. Do not give up hope!

Hi there, I would like to know specfic instructions on how to make the garlic onion drink. Do I put the garlic and onion in the blender and then add to water after boiling , or do you just cut the onion and garlic and add. How much water do I use, also how long do you leave in water before you take them out. Also how long can you use after you refregerate. How many oz. Do I drink everyday and how long should I use to totally cure GH. Will I stop getting outbreaks right away? Also what kind if test do I get to know that I am totally cured, and where can I get it? Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

Hey Brooklyn, thanks for this! I'm in Bed-Stuy most of the year, glad to hear about your friends. Like others I need to get rid of this thing for good as it's causing other health issues. I also believe we have everything here we need on the earth. so far I've cut out meat, dairy, alcohol and most grains, all processed foods. Basically vegan (no honey, etc). Coconut oil (on food and on areas) and looking into 35% h202 protocol but I'm trying to follow your recipe before doing that. Did some research and I am impressed...posting a summary here to help others: Garlic, chives, scallions, leek, onion, shallots, celery, thyme. Blend together and add the mix to boiling water...let cool, optionally strain or drink as-is. Store remainder in glass jar, drink 1 cup, twice a day. tumeric, spirulina, and fresh lemon added to water too.

Please clarify ingredients/quantities (am I missing any?) or least which you are using - you said just garlic and onion? Does it matter what type of onion? I saw white had the most acid... tumeric is awesome! Cinnamon too! Have you gotten retested? thanks again, blessings to you and good luck!
