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.

Olive Leaf Extract
Posted by Guest123 (Raleigh, North Carolina) on 07/15/2013

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

Onion Family (Onions, Garlic, Celery, Thyme)

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!

Hi I would like to know more information regarding the onion and garlic remedy. So you make a mixture of garlic and onion, then you drink a glass day? For how long? Does this cure or is it a temporary fix?

Replied by Molly

Hi. :) Did you ever end up getting more info about that onion/garlic broth..I'm curious.

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!

Instant pain remedy for Herpes! I found a quick remedy for the pain associated with genital/oral herpes. Being in so much pain, I racked my brain for something that would help. I thought of Orajel aka Ambesol, tooth ache gel. IT WORKED GREAT! I have genital herpes. It halts the pain instantly. Any oral pain reliever works. Just apply a dab to the areas in pain. Within seconds the pain is gone. wears off after a while, but just re-apply. I also found that helps to keep the area extra clean! Soap & water at least three times a day and the the application of the orajel shortens the outbreak to less than 3 days.

I have read the post and I really like it. I thank you for sharing these type of information as I'am always looking for relief.

One thing I can say I do not agree with on the posts is the acetone, I agree with everything else but that. I believe once you have an open sore anything through it can lead to the blood stream and may cause additional health concerns later in life. Perhaps one may reconsider such, the ly-sine vitamin I've been taking along with vitamin C, I take the 1,000mg, and also 1,000gm ly-sine three times a day. because I have a lot of stress I still get outbreaks every now an then which is expected under the circumstances.

This what I have been using which works great for me, the results may vary person to person rather works well for me.

I mix oregano oil and eucalyptus oil, use a q-tip to administer it to the affected area. I will do it overnight and or a few times a day or so, if I do it at night the blister and or bump will be gone in the morning. It will not take 7 days to go away, it literally gone within few days.

I hope this helps a bit.

I am rubbing oil of oregano and coconut oil on my lower back and also taking a few drops under my tongue along with vitamin C and Also a multi vitamin. I have been doing this for only a week now . I was Dx almost 4 weeks ago with HSV 2. How do you know if the oil of oregano is working? Will the oil force you to have an outbreak and discharge?

I detected this at the end of 2015 after an unfortunate encounter and then tested positive for both HSV1 and 2. It was severe for a month. Then I came across this site and used Oregano oil. 2-3 times a day few drops from the filler under the tongue. I leave it there for a few seconds. Did this for couple of months and then it went away. Initially I put it on my penis - it burns like hell. Just dab it very lightly and it works but of course burns bad for a few minutes. I thought I got cured so I stopped and then it came back with a vengeance in 2 months.

Again started using it and didn't stop for 6 months. It went away for good. I get a minor sting when I forget to take it for couple of weeks and I take for a few days just to be sure and then nothing. One thing I can say with confidence is that after mid-2016 I have not seen an outbreak. I just bought it on iherb or Amazon based on price and went with the top reviewed product. Usually around 10 dollars and it lasts you a couple of months. I keep a couple of bottles in my medicine cabinet so I never run out. This site is god sent. Best of luck to everyone.

Has anyone tested negative for HSV2 or HSV1 after testing positive by using Oil of Oregano? I heard about the book "The cure is in the Cupboard" by Dr Cass and saw youtube videos by him where he claims that by rubbing your lower back with oil of oregano twice a day and taking 5 drops twice a day for 6 months and detoxing after that, the virus will disappear and you will test negative. Has anybody done this?

Replied by Anony

Ps to all curious about oil of oregano. You HAVE to get the high grade oreganol. It's a tiny bottle for like 30 bucks. Expensive but you don't go through it too fast. If you don't get the highest grade and potency) there's no reason to get it at all.

I just recently contracted herpes so I have not had it long. I firmly beileve that it is not incurable. I believe there is a cure but we aren't allowed to know it since there's so much many info just suppressing the virus. I have researched and researched and I have read numerous articles as well as people's stories about how it is indeed possible to cure herpes with 100% oregano oil. I'm going to be buying some soon as well as changing my diet as it was suggested. Just really want to hear thoughts on this. :)

Who cares if a cure is suppressed? You know herpes is virus, take all the natural antivirals you can, do what you can to optimize your health and move forward. Sometimes the "cure" is worse than the disease, as when a drug cures a disease but causes other disease.

Heard about 'The Cure is in the Cupboard' from Christian Green (Nature Heals Us) on YT. He has a strategy and many ppl report in testimonials of having got rid of their virus. He says it's a parasite and recommends a multi-level approach whereby the use of herbs, supplements, 35% Food grade hydrogen peroxide, distilled water only, and super clean eating (zero processed foods) is used to attack and neutralize the virus.

Oregano Oil
Posted by Ppod (London, Uk) on 09/20/2014

Hi, I wanted to report that I tried using Oil of Oregano - (internally; drops in water, and on the bottom of my spine) - to rid myself of the herpes virus. I tried this for 3 months as recommended by a poster here. It was the wild and Mediterranean type of oil, but it did not work. I wouldn't recommend taking this oil for such a long period of time because it depleted calcium in my bones and I'm not sure how safe it is to take the oil for several months on end?

I wish there was a cure, but there seems to be only 1 or 2 people on here reporting that they are completely free of symptoms, compared with others who are just managing their symptoms.

Has anyone else had success with oil of oregano? I may try stabilized Oxygen Drops next...

Good luck all.

Just an idea. I wonder if anybody has tried using Probiotics to fight herpes.

I have had chronic shingles practically my entire life. This probably created the chronic meningitis later on which I haven't had a problem with for a while. I noticed when I took an antibiotic, my shingles acted up. This leads me to believe that the source of infection is related to the colon gut flora. That is where most of the immune system lies.

Maybe try addressing the problem that way.

Ppod from London! I have to totally agree with you about the Oil of Oregano for treating herpes. I tried the Wild Mediterranean source as well but the supplement never touched my herpes outbreaks. I used it for 6 months straight too. This was pretty expensive as well. I was taking it in pretty high doses internally as well as applying it topically to the spinal area where genital herpes hides. I was using close to 1 bottle per month at I believe around $45 bottle the best I can remember.

I've not had much success at all with any supplements though in treating my long term herpes (20+ years) problem. I'm on the BHT protocol right now and hopefully I will see some improvement with this soon. I'm at just over 2 months now on the BHT treatment so I've got to give it a while longer before evaluating the results. Hope you find a solution for your herpes because what works for one doesn't mean it will work for all. God Bless!

To Prioris from FL. I haven't necessarily used Probiotics for treating my chronic & long term herpes infection. I've been taking them for digestive issues.

I've been on both the supplement form of probiotics as well as making my own water kefir from grains. Kefir water is much more powerful than taking probioitics in supplement form.

I do combine them both though but use them at different times of the day. I don't use them at the same time. The water kefir has helped me quite a bit with digestion but not with the herpes part of my sickness.

I use these probiotics all in pretty high doses too so if it was going to do anything for my herpes I would have seen it by now. Been doing this for months. I'm just keeping my trust in the BHT protocol now but am considering taking that protocol up a notch or 2. Thanks & God Bless!

I was diagnosed with HSV1 (genital) about 2 years ago, I followed this treatment during my first set of symptoms. I didnt have another breakout for 6 months, I followed the same procedure and havent had another breakout since. Here is what I did:

Buy yourself a bottle of Oil of Oregano (I get mine at GNC store, about $15/bottle)

Topical treatment: Mix 1 tbsp olive oil with 10 drops oil of oregano, using a cleam cotton swab use the oil mixture to treat areas with sores twice daily until they heal. (it burns like hell for about 5 minutes.. I use the oil of oregano straight without diluting it, but that's just me)

Oral Treatment: take 2 drops of straight oil of oregano twice a day orally, (tastes bad.. ) do this for atleast 6 weeks for the first time you use it.

Ongoing treatment: at the first signs of a breakout (itchy, pain, tingling etc) use the oil of orgeno topically, it should stop the outbreak from forming, take the oil orally if you think you are getting a breakout. The oil can also be rubbed into the skin at the base of the spine where the virus is believed to hybernate.

This treatment has been successful for myself (well over a year with no breakouts) and also my boyfriend. It speeds up the healing time of a current outbreak and can help prevent future ones.

Good Luck!

I was diagnosed with HSV 2 approximately 5 years ago and never had an outbreak until 2 days ago. I applied Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) on the blisters the very first day and even slept with a cotton ball drenched in ACV on the blisters. This made the blisters get larger. So I began applying oil of oregano without diluting it and baking soda. And I was amazed by the results. My blisters dried out in a few hours. I keep taking the oil of oregano orally 3 times a day and I also rub it on the base of my spinal cord. I also take L-Lysine 1000mg 3-4 times a day and ChlorOxygen twice a day.

I'm on day 3 since the outbreak and my blisters are almost gone. I have discharge and discomfort but that's about it. I simply cannot believe my eyes, as I heard it takes at least 14 days to get rid of the outbreak.

Oil of oregano is quite potent people!

Hello, February 4th, of this year, I contracted genital herpes. As soon as I felt a sore, I applied garlic and ACV. It was to no avail. Now I am applying Vitamin E (d) and Oil of Oregano, and finally! The sores are clearing up. I am wondering if anyone knows if this could possibly be the first and last time I see sores. Its a horrific experience. I'm praying its the last time. I am on a generic form of Valtrex as well. I am going to continue taking the Oil of Oregano by mouth daily and apply it topically. The sores are clearing up. Does anyone know if the OO will really cure this awful virus?

Posted by Leyla (Columbia Falls, Mt) on 12/27/2011

Just wanted to share my success story with oregano oil to give others hope as it really is key in fighting off this nasty problem. Mind you, the post will be a bit long.

I hooked up with my ex-boyfriend of one and a half years before he moved away for school. One night. Bad idea. I had of course imagined he had been seeing other people since we weren't together, but I never, EVER expected to contract STIs from him. He left me with both genital herpes and genital warts.

Now I also have had gastroinestinal problems since the age of 13, and it has left my immune system in horrible condition. I cannot stress how bad my outbreaks were. Every single one lasted for a minimum of three and a half weeks. I'd be clear for 3-4 days, then it would return again. Each outbreak was just as bad--if not worse--than the last. There would always be a period where the pain and itching was so severe that I was unable to walk. The warts were equally bad, and anytime I had them removed, they'd be back within a single week of the skin healing over. This went on for about 10 months, and it was definitely the worst period of my life. The emotional suffering is really the worst part of it all.

From my very first herpes rash I had begun taking mass amounts of supplements. Olive leaf extract, bitter melon, andrographis, echinacea, astralagus, ginger, Lysine, red marine algae, monolaurin, coconut oil... You name it, I've tried it. Even acupuncture and chinese herbs. It didn't seem to do much of anything. Applying tea tree oil, propolis, or melissa oil on the rash burned like hell, and would help with the pain and itching temporarily but the outbreaks were still just as long. One particular outbreak, I remember not taking anything, just to see what would happen. The rash persisted for nearly 7 weeks. Sorry for rambling but I really want to emphasize how bad my condition was.

I hadn't tried the oregano oil, as it was pretty expensive. I read that it tasted bad and I'm a total wimp. Can't even take cough medidcine I'm so sensitive to taste. On top of that, I believed my doctor when he told me there was no cure so I thought the whole Cure in a Cupboard thing was just a scam. One day I just decided why not give it a try, I've already thrown thousands down the drain in supplements so another couple hundred won't hurt.

Orderd super strength in a small bottle. Begun with the protocol, which was 5 drops under the tongue twice daily. At first, I had to do it in 1 or 2 drops at a time. My eyes would water and my mouth would start salivating like crazy from the burn, but it was by no means unbearable. Hold it under the tongue for as long as you can then wash it down with water. Over time, I increased my dosage. I had no bad side effects, but I believe that was due to me taking the olive leaf extract everyday. I got INSANE die-off reaction the first time I took that stuff, I was shaking with chills and fever and vomitting for 3 days with OLE.

As a side note, I read somewhere that a small bottle lasts you a long time. It barely lasted 2 weeks for me! Buy the bigger one if you're going to try it. I started upping it to 5 drops under the tongue 3 times a day within about 2 weeks. After a month, 4 times a day. Usually 8-10 drops. Experts can't seem to agree on a safe dosage for this stuff so just work your way up slowly. For the first 2 months of taking it, I noticed no improvement in my state. I got discouraged, but I remembered reading that it takes 1-3 months to heal so I stuck to it.

Just past the 2 month point, I suffered from the worst outbreak I have ever had. It covered a massive area, my genitals and it even went down a bit into my anal area. It was bright red. I remember crying myself to sleep one night the pain was so severe. But something surprising happened. It cleared up in about 8 days. That was the shortest outbreak I have ever had, and it was also my last.

That was 2 months ago, and to this day, I still have not had another outbreak. Oregano oil has been a miracle worker for me. I know a lot of people are going to question it being healed without a DNA test. I've gotten a few done in the first stages of my infection, and even though I was 100% positive I had genital herpes my tests would come back negative. (Both blood test and a swab of a lesion) So doctor's tests aren't as reliable as you may think.

I don't need a test to tell me I'm cured, I know I am. I continued to take the oregano oil for a full 4 months. Not one day did I miss a dosage, as I was completely determined to rid myself of this virus. My advice to you is to try it. And take it in LIQUID under the tongue if you want results!!! Best way to get it absorbed into your bloodstream. I'm no doctor, just an average 21 year old girl that suffered from the same problem as everyone else on this board. If it worked for me, I'm sure it can work for someone else. I wish good health and best of luck to all of you.

I was just wondering if this is really a cure? I am very interested in knowing because I have been dealing with this problem since 2008 and I have been trying to research a lot of different home remedies that I can use to get rid of this issue. Although I don't have outbreaks on a regular basis, but I do have them, but only in my genital area.

I have been using acyclovir and recently I started using Olive Leaf Extract, the Pills, which I got from a all natural medicine shop. Just recently I researched that pure Unrefined Coconut Oil helps dramatically. I personally have not yet tried it for a long period of time, but reading your story, I feel like it is very similar to mines. I would love for you to reply back to me and maybe help me through this process.

I would love to have my life back and maybe possibly even one day, have a family. I am scared that I might never be able to have kids because of this problem. If this, what you wrote above is accurate and very true. Also if the test have proven that it is completely gone from your system, body, blood-stream and etc. I would love to speak to you and really find out if this is all true. I have read a lot of stories about people finding cures for HSV2 and some of them are not TRUE at all. Your story however seems like it could be true just because like I said our stories are very similar. So please let me know if you could help! Thank you.. and if everything is correct and this is true that you have been cured, well then congratulations to you!

Putting the Oregano oil in a capsule would be easier I think. You could easily get 10 - 12 drops in and do that a few times a day. Make sure not to get Oregano on the outside of the capsule and then put vege oil on the outside so it will slide down your throat. I just put 1 drop on a Q-tip directly on the sore and it only stung mildly for about 5 mins.

I just wanted to add that I tried oregano essential oil once and couldn't continue because it burned too much.

Leyla From Columbia Falls,

What kind of diet were you on when you were using Oregano oil? Was it raw vegan or were you consuming fish or eggs too? Please let me know soon I really need to know what diet plan to follow. Thank you!

Oregano Oil
Posted by Bye Bye Pain (Beaumont, Tx, Usa) on 09/09/2011

Mediterranean oil of Oregano. I am 17 years old and have been using this for over 2 months now and still no genital outbreak! Its Very expensive let me tell you.. 43 fl. Oz. For about $30, BUT IT WORKS. I have had herpes for over 2 years now and I know its very painfull. This really helps, you rub it on your spinal cord once a day. (Spinal Cord because thats where the virus lives. ) and about 4 drops under your tounge twice a day. Keep this up and have a good routine, and it will be gone in 6 weeks or less. It has to be MEDITERRANEAN OIL OF OREGANO, or it will not work. There are many oils out there but this one is P73. Be sure to get that one. I hope you try it.

seriously, Oil of Oregano W O R K S

I was really suffering two days ago with a third outbreak in a month. I must be under a LOT of stress because I usually don't have this problem but once a year.

I've decided to analyze myself and started with my diet. I like wine and usually have one or two glasses a night and especially since my husband cooks, it's endearing to share such goodness! But I started wondering if my liver is being compromised because I shouldn't be having this kind of problem. So, after my last two glasses last night, I am quitting for at least a couple months to see how things go. I want health, not suffering. I also wish to be a good example to my 18, 20 and 22-year old children.

So, when this blister with no pain showed up on top of my butt crack, I was mortified and DONE with this curse. I showed it to my daughter as a warning about how it's better to keep your pants on and dress down. she was grossed out.. GOOD!!

I sterilized a pin, popped the tiny blisters, carefully grabbed Oil of Oregano Spirits from Turkey (SUPER HOT!!! ), and with the Thieves oil, rubbed it in before going to bed.

In the morning, with a cup of coffee, I took 2 aspirin which I never take but read here that some found it helpful. Since I like coffee, I thought I'd try it. 30 minutes later, I had a multigrain, organic bread with raw, wild honey, peanut butter and banana. I took 1000 mg. Ester C, 2 L-lysine tablets, 2 zinc capsules, 2 probiotic capsules and 2 Omega 3-6-9 capsules. At lunch I put more oils on, had a big salad and took more supplements. Before going home, I put on more oils and then when I got home, I put on more oils.

By the next night (last night), the very red, very hard lump with 3 blisters on it, at 1. 5" across with the redness, was now nearly all gone, flat and flesh colored again. This was LESS than 24 HOURS LATER. I can't stress enough how much I really, really hate this virus. The lump had 3 small, dark 'pits' in it last night, signs of a very mean virus trying to take over my body. Since last night, there's only about 1. 5 of the pits left, no redness, blistering or less. I'm still taking the supplements and am going to get a few more from looking at the other posts on this.

I have to say that since I've not had much garlic, I have had more problems. I normally eat a lot of garlic, with or without wine, but now - since I've got the husband back from the sea, I tend to eat too much and drink too much wine. I am going to change this.

Henceforth, I am going to get these supplements to also add to my life in case I have any other issues with this:

Olive leaf, VRP collodial silver, Primal Defense, Thieves, BHT, Red Marine Algae, dandelion, and some liver de-tox supplements.

No one should have to go through this problem. With the exercise I do, I should be the image of health inside and out, but I really think my liver is telling me to stop this drinking and let it heal before having more, otherwise, adding these supplements to my diet cannot do anything but increase my overall health.

Oregano Oil

I understand how great the results of ACV can be but why no one is mentioning, or maybe no one knows that Oil of Oregano kills the virus that causes any kind of herpes outbreaks. I know we have been fed the idea that there isn't a cure for it but please check around the web and see what others have to say about the effects of Oil of Oregano to herpes virus. You can take the oil of oregano both orally and apply it topically. You could find it in any health food store and even cheaper over the net.

Some argue that Oil of Oregano works so well because it kills fungal cells and infections and many think herpes infection is similar to fungal ones therefore it would be hard if not close to impossible to kill it with traditional antibiotic prescriptions.

So, do your homework and find out what others have to say. Take the recommended dose orally and apply with a qt topically. Healing should begin immediately. Take the oil orally for up to 20 days to kill the core of the infection (Inside of you, usually within the nerves system, and you may never ever have to deal with this disease again.

Try combining with L-Lysine and ACV and stay away from red wine, chocolate, and citrus fruit during the time of the treatment. Alcohol, cigarettes and coffee would not be helpful either.

P.S. try to find a good source of oregano oil. Some brands are better then others. Again, do your homework if you want to be free from suffering. I wish you health and happiness and I send you love and blessings.

Namas te.

Hi, I just wanted to verify if the Oil of Oregano actually cured your HSV2 Virus or is it just maintaining the outbreak? Basically are you virus free now? Did you go back to the doctor to have test done to see if it is still in your system, the reason that I ask is b/c I was told that there is no cure and that you live with it for the rest of your life. Thank you so much for sharing the info that you've previously provided, it's a huge help!

Was curious how long it takes for the Oil of Oregano to completely kill the infection, since it was mentioned that it takes 20 days for it to kill the 'core of the infection'? Thanks.
