Oregano Oil for Herpes Outbreaks:

I happened upon this about 4 years ago, I've had herpes now for several years and break out about twice a year or sometimes more, if I am not getting enough sleep.

I was using Oregano oil for something unrelated during the beginning stages of a herpes outbreak. Those who have herpes recognize the pain that comes with the beginning of an outbreak. After taking the oregano oil, the outbreak was very mild and I continued the oregano oil for a few days until the outbreak disappeared altogether.

For the last 4 years or so, this has worked for me every single time I've had an outbreak. I've never had a severe or painful one since, as long as I take oregano oil for about 3 days from the onset of the symptoms.

Amount: I cannot take the taste of oregano oil, so I buy the oil and I fill up an empty capsule and swallow it with water, followed by a glass of water. I usually take one capsule, twice a day for about 3 days. At first I thought it was coincidence, but for me this is tried and true.

I hope this helps others.

I wonder if this would eventually kill the virus by taking it daily for a prolonged period of time?? However, I don't know how healthy it is to take Oregano oil on a daily basis.

Any feedback to these questions would be very much appreciated.

I have just starting taking Oregano oil everyday, so I don't know if it is working yet but I am hoping for the best. I heard about it through my stepfather he lives by the stuff (for everything). My brother also takes if to boost his immune system. He has been taking it everyday for the last 4 years and hasn't gotten sick. Therefore, I think is is safe to take on a daily base. I take 4 drops of it in the morning and 4 drops at night. I also rub it on the base of my spine since that is where the virus lives and the oil will seep in through the skin.

To Liz from Boulder, CO...How is the oil of oregano working for you? Have you had any OB since you starting taking and applying the oil of oregano? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I was doing some additional research on a particular brand of Oil of Oregano (as I mainly used another brand) and came across info regarding it's effectiveness to cure Herpes. While I have not used Oil of Oregano for this purpose, it's one of the staple natural remedies I've been using for years. Some of the things I've successfully used it for are: Yeast Infections, Abcesses, intestinal parasites (after eating Pork they usually make themselves known), bleeding gums, itching skin and I'm sure there are many more things it could be used for. Give it a try and see what happens. It's a little pricey for the small bottle but it lasts a long time. It can be used internally and externally. It's very caustic taken in liquid so after a while I got smart and now buy gel capsules and use the dropper to fill it and take it that way. If you try it, please report back your findings so others may benefit.

For Herpes (
In "The Cure is in the Cupboard", Dr Cass Ingram's states that "a study done by Sidiqqui determined that the oil completely destroyed herpes viruses, 'disintegrating' them. He states to daily rub the oil vigorously over the spinal column since that is where the virus lives when it is dormant. He states to take 5 or more drops of the oil under the tongue twice daily. Naturally, everyone's immune system is different so no time frame is given; however, one of the testimonials given in the book states that a woman's genital herpes completely disappeared after only 1 month, after having it for several years.

Also visit Edgar Cayces' site on using Caster Oil packs to strenthen your immune system. Don't recall the URL so you'll need to Google it.

P.S. Make sure the Oil of Oregano you purchase comes from the Mediterranian. This is the only kind that contains the medicinal properties.

I am writing about severe, non-responsive, apparently untreatable genital herpes.

I have had herpes for tweny years. It was never a huge problem till two years ago when I came down with a painful outbreak with swollen genital glands, which have continued to this day. No anti-viral or natural remedy has had any effect. I have had continuous outbreaks while on anti-viral medications. I have also been in a state of constant outbreak for the past two months,so painful that I cannot stand it. At first I though BHT was working, but it didn't. I am on daily: BHT 3,150 mg Lysine 3000 mg Zinc, 50 mg Vit C w/bioflav 2000mg Vit A 24,000 IU Vit E 1600 IU Selenium 200 mg B50 2 per day Vit B1 1000mg Ted's Apple Cider Vinegar recipe Applied topically: ACV Hydrogine Peroxide Black tea

I am in terrible pain; please help me if you can. Many thanks

Eat flounder. Here is how: Prepare without seasonings, after it is cooked, then u can season if u wish. I just squeeze fresh lemon or lime and eat weekly. It worked for this man and it is working for me. Change your diet and u will never have OB again. It stops it in its track Avoid chicken soups. I no longer live in fear. In the meantime I am working on curing it by using other things. Read my post. If u can't afford flounder. Use cod, tilapia or catfish. I try to use flounder since this is what worked for this man.

Wild Mediterranean Oil of Oregano cured me! I swear to you. Take 5 drops, under the tongue (hold it there for at least 30 seconds) then wash it down with water, twice daily. I have 100% faith in this. It worked for me. I swear by it. It has to be the Wild Meditterranean Oil of Oregano that says P73 on the bottle, it has the strongest healing properties. You can also rub a few drops, vigorously, on your skin at the base of your spine, each day. The results were so very quick for me and my body is eradicated of the virus. The Oil of Oregano disentigrates/destroys the virus, with consistent use for a couple of months. Also, look into a book called "The Cure is in the Cupboard. How to use Oregano for Better Health. " by Dr. Cass Ingram

Funny story... Well not really. I had a bump on my labia, went to the Dr and was advised that it looked like genital herpes. The Dr took a sample culture and ran blood test. Blood test came back positive for HSV-1, however some how the culture was too warm to test and the bump was gone. After reading some of these post Im not 100% sure the bump was Herpes, I didnt experience tingling and pain, just a little soreness and an itch. But this has happened twice, Jan 2012 and June 2012.... Bump similar in nature but on opposite sides of the outer labia. But because I did test positive for HSV1, although I've never had a cold sore, I am going to go ahead and try preventative/curative remedies. The first this I saw online that spark my attention was Oil of Oregano! I ordered it immediately from a distributor out of Greece it is 83-85% carvacol. Cant wait for it to arrive!!!

Question....Cured from New York.... Did you have blood test ran after completing your 2 months of using this? Im just curious what the results showed?

Take 3 to 4 drops in a shot glass of hot water, then immediately chase it with another shot glass of coconut milk. This will pretty much end the bad taste issue.

Stay off suppressive meds. They don't actually suppress the virus, they suppress how your immune system responds to the virus to lessen the appearance of outbreaks. I have stopped my outbreaks doing the following.

Chaga mushroom tea, which I make I buy the chaga mushroom online in a grainlike form and you seep the grains of the mushroom in warm water not boiling but almost it tastes like spicy vanilla, Chaga is a antioxident and amazing immunesystem boster you should look up about chaga this is some info on what the heck it is its a fungus and truelly it kills virus and such its awsome.

The Oregano oil is awsome tastes horrible foul springs to mind oregano oil the wild organic mediteranean version with 75 % carvacrol it is great stuff truly awsome when u get a outbreak put the oil in the mouth on any oral sores it stops the itching and it does help when u first start taking this the outbreaks get less and less I recomend it.

Basically it lowers lvls of metals in your blood and its anti viral and such hsv 1 and hsv2 love to thrive and the oregano seems to knock them dead.

Think about this logically, most of the meds out there are actually derived from nature and they basically put masses of modified chemicals in also the pharma companies., they put enough things in to supress but not to cure if they cure it think how much money they loose. Frankly also my aunt's a doctor and you know that doctors take a huge bonus from med companies for prescriptions they hand out and people turn in for meds.

As a doctor you learn all these methods to treat but you're not going to give those out cos u sign a nice agreement with the government and pharma companies stopping you from doing so legally binding contracts. sure you tell your family and such of other more benefical means. My aunt is a doctor told me to say the hell of acyclovir its like a total poison to your body after taking in a few yrs outbreaks will hit u like a truck cos you spent 2 years hitting your immunsystem with hard meds that actually damage you in the longrun. all those side effects its a sign of toxic reactions to chemicals in your body your body hates these chemicals and its fighting them as well as the virus and you just get more and more sick.

Avoid arginine rich foods coffee nuts chocolate and big no no is grapes, alcohol knocks your body also basically live as healthy as u can and avoid processed foods as much as u can, put good foods in your body and stack up on vitamin D3 builds on your immunity. basically make your body strong and you stop that nasty hsv coming out not by supression but by keeping it under raps yourself.

L-lysine basically if you been eating a bunch of l-aranine rich foods take a bunch of the l-lysine to knock back the hsv, it is known for thriving on l-arganine and helps the replication of the virus.

Also drink lemon change your ph lvls to make your body a hostile enviroment for hsv. Basically its chemistry and researching about the virus what it likes doesnt like and finding the right balance for you.

I had been using peroxide since I had seen it mentioned on several internet support sites. I continued to have the worst outbreaks in years. Told my doctor and he said Hydrogen peroxide antagonizes herpes so I stopped and the severity of the problem was cut in half in a few days. Monolaurin has helped but you need about 3 grams a day during outbreaks but it does work very well compared to the three antivirals my dr put me on. No peroxide on the sore is my advice.

I've had HSV2 for over 40 years - with chronic, severe outbreaks. I've tried just about everything that's been mentioned on this site... with no success. I have found something that helps. In a small container, I mix coconut oil and pure oil of oregano. When an outbreak starts, I put this mixture on - and continue applying until it goes away. This has speeded up the healing and diminished the pain.

Oil of Oregano is an anti-viral and coconut oil is a mid-chain fatty acid that supposedly dissolves the outer covering of the virus, thus allowing the body's white cells to destroy it.

Good feedback happygirl. U've tried a few things that I had in mind so I found your posts helpful. Thank u and well done, please keep posting. So what do u think about ingesting oregano oil then, possible cure? Or drinking the silver water, is it not the miracle cure it's claimed to be? Chris - uk

Okay, so I was diagnosed w/hsv2 back in Dec/2012. Since then, I have tried everything from Valtrex both oral and topical, Fenvir, Dynaclear, L-lysine, olive leaf extract, colloidal silver, massive dosages of vitamin C (which has done wonders for my skin BTW-pimples are gone), vitamin B-complex, zinc, hydrogen peroxide, ACV both interally and externally--nothing seemed to work. I felt like I was having an OB every other week. They were minimal though. I would get the tingling/sore feeling and sometimes a tiny bump would form, but no blisters. My skin would just be irritated probably from all the junk I was putting on it. But never the less, it was literally EVER other week.

Well, about 3 wks ago I had an OB and OMG did it hurt. I went to a Chinese herb doctor on the second day of my OB. She put me on pills..... I was taking 30 pills a day and a 6 weeks supply cost me $200. She told me I would have to continue taking the pills for at least 6 months, possibly all the way up to year before I would see results, meaning--no more OB's. I bought into the idea for about 3 weeks, then decided I was tired of swallowing massive quanity of pills and quit bc I was still getting the tingly feeling/irritation.

So, I further researched the web and decided to give oil of oregano a try. It was $30 for a small dropper bottle, I figured what do I have to lose. I've tried just about everything on the web!! I began doing 4 drops under my tongue (twice a day) and then at night (4 drops) rubbing the oil onto the base of my spine. (Yes, at night bc the scent is very powerful and not pleasant).

I had one episode about 2 days into it, where I got the tingly feeling, and decided to drop OOO on a q-tip and put it on the irritated area. OMG, did it burn. I should have diluted, but didn't. Lesson learned!! Anyways, with one treatment, the tingly feeling went away and I have not had one since.

I was having such good results, so I decided to take it a step further and ordered DSMO in the cream form (the rose scented one off EBAY). I began rubbing a mixture of OOO and DSMO onto the base of my spine every night.

Not saying this is for everyone, but it has been amazing for me. Not once since I started using this combo have I had any predome symptoms. I couldn't be happier. I do have to say, if you decide to try the DSMO on the base of your spine, use a light (and I stress, light) coat. I've experimented and went heavier one night and got so sick. I wanted to throw up so bad. It passed, but it was an awful feeling. So, keep it light. I've read that some ppl have actually been cured using this method for a month or two. Not saying I am or will be, but if the symptoms stay away--that's all I'm asking for.

I am also trying the oregano oil (10 drop 3 times a day and on spine 3 times a day), vitamin C (9.5g) day, coconut oil drinking (4 tablespoons a day). I am now only getting a tingle for say 15 minutes bi-monthly. I want it gone though and then get tested. How much DMSO do you put on so you do not get sick now? Thanks very much and please keep us posted. Did you get a positive HSV2 test? Will you do another test soon?

I put a very light coat. The DMSO that I use has a creamy texture, so I just basically run one finger half way across the top of the jar. Just enough to get some on my finger. First, I'll rub the oregano oil onto my spine, then the DMSO follows on top. It seems to be working for me. This is the first time in close to a year that I haven't had any symptoms!!! I'm so happy..... my fingers are crossed it will remain this way.

Yes, I did test positive for HSV2 antibodies back in Dec/2012. Since then, it's been non-stop w/the tingles/irritation. That is until I started the OOO/DMSO!! I may retest if I don't have any symtoms or OB's in about 4 months, or so.

Wow, you do 10 drops? 3 times a day both orally and externally?? How long have you been doing this?? That's awesome you only too only get the tingles and nothing more. Full on OB's hurt. :(

I too still take Vitamin C, but it's just the regular amount, nothing crazy like I was doing. Try the DMSO, I honestly believe this is what has made the difference for me....

Yes, I'm taking 10 drops 3 times daily and rubbing 6 drops 3 times daily. Coconut oil 3 times daily in a 20 ml spoon melted in warm water. How much vitamin C do you take? Please please get tested when you feel in you're heart it's gone.

Well, the oregano oil and DMSO did not work out so great after all. I was still having OB's. About 2 months ago, I tried Kyolic Immune Formula (Garlic pills w/other immune boosting ingredients like vitamin c and mushrooms) and so far it's been working great. I take 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening and my OB's have been kept at bay.....or at least I hope!

Hi Happygirl, how long did you end up doing the DMSO for? Had you stopped when the OB happened? Were you taking the Oregano Oil orally also? Thanks very much

Please, please, please, please, please stay well clear of using DMSO gel with oregano oil. It is extremely dangerous because it goes into your system and burns everything in its path. I had contracted genital herpes and sought every remedy online. I had some success with olive leaf extract but knew deep inside that there probably was a better day but ran out of patience. I had read online that people started rubbing oregano oil on their spine and mixing this with DMSO to take this deep into the nervous system to kill the herpes virus. Whilst this is true, the oregano oil kills everything in its path. That includes your good nerves and myelin sheaths which surrounds your nerves!!

After rubbing DMSO with oregano oil for only 3 days I had to stop as the oregano oil burned my skin which turned ash black and I had to be rushed to hospital suffering from dizziness. I've never had dizziness in my life. Within a few days my legs felt really heavy and I had to take a week off work. I have not been to the gym for two months now despite always going three times a week and I haven't been able to run since. My legs still feel heavy and I still feel dizzy. I have scarring where I put the oregano oil on my lower spine.

I am praying for my full recovery and really hope that I can warn everyone not to be so foolish and stupid as I was which was to follow a dangerous hint online which no doctor in the world would recommend. Oregano oil might be ok but mixed with DMSO and this takes this straight deep into the skin and starts burning its way through your myelin sheaths (protective coat which surrounds the nerves). If the myelin sheaths are damaged you will suffer the SAME side effects as someone who has Multiple Sclerosis.

I am slowly getting better but some days I wake up and feel I can barely move.

Weirdly, I bought the DMSO three months ago and my gut instinct said it was bad to use this but my head thought it knew better. Now I will never ignore my intuition ever again.

Dmso is a chemical that needs to be handled appropriately. It has been used by more than 500 million people but it still needs certain precautions in its use.

As you found out in a hurry dmso acts as a carrier to transport other chemicals deep into tissues. You got to be careful what you mix dmso with since it penetrates skin just like a hypodermic needle.

Mixing dmso with unknown materials is a really bad idea. Dmso is a liquid not a gel therefore the ingredients composing the gel can be absorbed into your body and blood stream. same goes for the oregano oil. Herbs are like any other food crop frequently contaminated with pesticides, fungicides, herbicides. These unidentified chemicals if present can be absorbed into your skin as well. The same can be said of the soaps or lotions on your skin.

People sometimes use antibacterial soaps thinking they are doing their bodies a favor by putting dioxin related carcinogenic chemicals on the skin.

The fda does not regulate chemicals such as soaps and cosmetics applied externally. A surprising number of skin care products are very dangerous.

I found one mascara eye liner product that actually used mercury as a preservative!

Some products like most sunscreens for example actually cause skin cancer! a test of more than 150 leading sun screen products was conducted and it was found that the vast majority contained cancer causing chemicals in them.

I discoverd one sunscreen product that contained lead and mercury, I could not believe my eyes when I read the report.

Moral of the story: dmso needs handled with respect. It is a safe product if used safely and a dangerous product if used dangerously.

For treatment of herpes, use dmso on clean skin all by its self.

Always reduce dmso before use 50/50 with water.

Osha, Usnea and Echinacea

I don't have herpes but have advised people who do as I work in the healing industry as a body worker and spiritual counselor. I treated my children's viral and bacterial infections while they were growing up with the following herbs.

Osha is a strong antiviral. Usnea is a strong antibacterial and antifungal. Echinacea is a good blood purifier.

Years ago when clients asked if there is anything I could recommend for their herpes breakouts I told them of these herbs. I suggested they take the tinctures orally and to use a combination of the Osha and Usnea as a topical and apply it with a cotton swab. I suggested they take 30 drops of each of the 3 tinctures together every 2-3 hours at the first signs of an outbreak and to take this dosage for the first 24-48 hrs depending on results and then to do the bottle recommendation for at least 5 days. The bottle should recommend about 30-35 drops 3 times a day.

This is the same course of action I would use with my kids at the first signs of any illness. Those who tried it say it stopped the outbreak in its tracks and healed it in a couple of days. These herbs are fine to use in these dosages for the first few days without worrying about overdosing or side effects. I recommend these to people who can't fight off viral infections and they are amazed at how fast they respond to them. Something I have been doing the last few years is to mix these 3 herbs in a atomizing spray bottle and spraying it into my throat where it can really absorb. I have been free of any type of viral infection for about 13 years. The atomizing spray bottle may be a good application for topical use especially when away from home and without swabs. I take the 3 herbs throughout the flu and cold season as a preventative and especially if I'm going to be out in a large crowd such as a convention. These tinctures can also be put into a bottle of water in their daily dose amounts and sipped throughout the day and they will metabolize well through the kidneys. The tinctures are best taken if allowed to absorb sublingually (under the tongue) but these herbs are an acquired taste. Since herbs lack the residual affect of pharmaceuticals it's important to be diligent with taking them during any treatment to ensure their efficacy. I think with the condition of a herpes outbreak treating both topically and at the same time systemically is a good system of treatment.

The Osha is also a good lung herb in that it is a bronchial dilator and is also a good expectorant and as a strong antiviral will fight the virus where it's breaking out and also at its source. The Usnea will help to fight secondary infections at the breakout site and to give an extra boost to the immune system by taking off some of its load of keeping harmful bacterial in the body in check; this will free up some of the immune system to fight the herpes outbreak. Echinacea balances blood PH and in doing so stimulates a sluggish lymphatic system and this will enhance the body's ability to fight infection. I also recommend maximizing the health of the immune system by eliminating all sugars, GMOs, junk foods and their additives, fluoride in water and toothpaste, refined flours and grains, sodas and all sugary drinks, meats and dairy with hormones. Eat organic as much possible and meats that are free range and fed non-GMO grains. Another thing that is wreaking havoc on our health is the over abundance of omega 6 oils to omega 3s. Western diet is lacking in EFAs; essential fatty acids. All these things contribute to a weakened immune system that will make it much more susceptible to diseases and out breaks as well as allergies. Our food and water supply has been compromised for profits and we as individuals need to be diligent about what we are eating and indulging in. At age 61 I'm free of all meds and am in robust health and do aerobics 4-5 days a week, pump iron and eat a healthy, natural, GMO free and organic diet. I'm free of spending time and money chasing my health through a ineffective health system and free of spending money on pharm drugs.

De-stressing and finding inner peace is also conducive to a healthy body and immune system as well as the mind. Meditation daily can add to the health of your overall being and its ability to fight infections and ward off outbreaks. I recommend to start telling your body every day you are giving it permission to heal and rid itself of all viruses. Tell your body it's strong enough to heal itself. When you've told yourself this enough then you will start to feel and know it and it will respond. Every cell in our body is a sentient being and responds to what we give it a tell it. Believe. Faith is an inner acknowledgement of truth. Faith and truth are yours to use for your own healing. Blessings and best wishes to everyone.

Hi, I have been having Obs for nearly a year and have the occasional outbreak 4 times a year, its normally a small lump that appears somewhere different on my labia, it stings and itches. It normally appears after my period and when I am stressed and run down. I have had cold sores in the past so don't know if I had infected myself or if it came from my ex partner.

The treatment I first used when I first saw it and it works a treat. C------ cold sore patches, u can buy it from Priceline or your chemist. They are for your cold sores that appear on your lips and they are invisible. Its harder to peel of the sticky patch so u need patience and use a mirror, u will end up throwing away a few that get squashed.

Its all worth it cover the ob with the clear patch during day night after washing your Vagina and keeping it dry and clean. My doctor said it was a great idea because it keeps it dry and stops it from contaminating another part of your Labia and its invisible, although will come off with lots of moisture so night time is best when you are sleeping.

I also was prescribed Valtrex and together with the patch it took 7 days to completely clear up, with one tablet a day and a healthy diet and try rest as much as possible.

If you cannot buy the patches, straight away because you are busy with working fulltime kids ect, then use either diluted tea tree oil, or Aloe Vera plant or Banana skin to sooth the pain, garlic also sterilizes it but it stings.

I am yet to try Acetone, but the cold sore patches are great because they work and stops the ob from spreading.

We have been treating many clients who have HSV-2 with Ozone Therapy and we have seen amazing results. There are multiple ways to use ozone and I recommend you see a practitioner that is experience or you should get training before performing ozone therapy on yourself. I am not going to say we have cured the disease but we have seen multiple clients with no OB's for 12 months since starting treatment. Ozone therapy is not legal in every state so I would do your research. There are ozonated topical creams which can also work wonders as well as ozonated olive oil suppositories.

If you are a female I highly recommend vaginal insufflation. Women have an advantage, in that vaginal insufflation requires no preparation, and can be administered for very long periods of time, hours in fact. The gas will usually find its way into the uterus, out the Fallopian tubes, and then into the abdominal cavity. Liver problems and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can be addressed in this way. This is also a good way of getting ozone into the lymph system. Obviously, this method is not recommended during pregnancy. We have more information in our medical library here,

HI U AUSTIN, , , , , , , thank you for your URL and I will use it because we have a medical ozone generator and go to Atlanta for ozone treatments that we can't do at home.

I run up a RED FLAG with your comment that a woman can use vaginal ozone insufflation for hours. That is not what directions we have been given by the ozone generator manufacturer, literature, nor our ozone doctors. You say this so flippantly that it alarms me.


Ozone Therapy
Posted by Jasonbourne (Location Usa) on 10/22/2013


I called Dr Robbins in NYC. He told me that he had treated many herpes patients with ozone therapy and there are 3 types of Ozone therapy, but the method Dr Robbins uses is an injection of air directly in the vein of the arm. The normal treatment is 3 times a week for a few months. I was coming from out of town and I was told we were going to do "what I call the Dr. Robbins fast track method" twice a day for 6 days per week for 3 weeks in total. I was told only 3 patients have an outbreak after treatment. Dr Robbins told me that they were probably reinfected due to their risky lifestyle (eg, a couple that swings)

During the treatment I was told to take as much Vitamin C as possible..I took 2,000 mg every 2 hours.

After 3 weeks of treatments I went and I got tested and I still had the virus. I eventually went 6 weeks and I still had the virus.

Before the treatment. I had many outbreaks as one was healing another would begin. During the treatment. I had one outbreak right as I started and then none for the entire time. I took that as progress and possibly cured. I did double the time I was told I would need.

A few weeks after going out after the treatment I started getting outbreaks again. This is my experience with the ozone therapy.

I just started doing the Bob Beck protocol and it has been 2 weeks...To early to tell

I will say there were other patients there for other ailments that were making progress from Ozone therapy.

@Jasonbourne: It is essential to keep the body a little on the alkaline side PH because that greatly increases tissue oxygenation. Also, combining 35% FG H2O2 up to 15 drops 2x daily in combination w/ O3 therapy would seem impossible to not have a therapeutic affect.

Also, Lipheric Vit-C is the most powerful, by far, form of C. BHT and Chanca Piedra are very good antivirals.

Permanent Cure for Genital Herpes

Hi, I am concerned that I may have contracted Herpes and am searching vigorously for possible cures. I believe that there is a lot of bias in the American medical community, and the idea that Herpes and other viruses are "incurable" is merely the status quo. With corporate influences on the industry from pharmaceutical companies, who knows?

It looks like there's a strong community on here, so I thought this would be a great place to pose my question and see how much hope there is.

According to American medical standards, if a disease's signs have not returned after 5 years, it is considered cured. I think the standard was made for mostly experimental reasons, such as cancer research.

So, who has 1) experienced NO outbreaks or symptoms for at least 5 years AFTER using a specific remedy (without using the remedy itself during those 5 years - I don't count a disease to be cured or virus eradicated if you're dependent on something indefinitely), and 2) has been RETESTED and received a negative result AFTER having tested positive initially?

I think if those 2 conditions are met, it's pretty likely the disease is cured, for good.

Also, if you are cured, what worked for you, exactly?

Thank you for any responses. I'm really looking for answers and hope.

Hi. Someone who is cured by changing his diet using everything from the onion family.. Onion, garlic, shallots, chives, leeks. Boil and drink. He's been retested many times and nothing in the blood. No symptoms and is herpes free. Also, use plain cooked unseasoned flounder with pure coconut water for a while. Watch your organs. Regimen for days, vitamins, herbs, iridologist or Dr supervision. Founder's loaded with lysine. People cured.

Wow. I'm so impressed with this website. People actually use the forbidden word (cure) and are not kicked off.

Everyone I've read had a positive experience with prunella vulgaris but one. I am "symptom free" after drinking prunella vulgaris tea for several months every day. You can also use the tea to put on outbreaks.

This might seem like a lot of tea but I had the virus for decades. My friend who has MS (also a herpes virus) is drinking it now and it has changed his life. I found information about it on a blog that lists "medical research and the herpes viruses" by a curandera. It's great to hear about the onion cure and the flounder cure too! I will incorporate these into my diet.

Dear All,

I have been suffering from HSV-2 for nearly a year. Constant outbreaks were driving me made. I have tried Zinc and Acyclovir, with very little success. Then in Sept 07, I read on the an article on the 'Chemical properties, mode of action, and in vivo anti-herpes activities of alignin-carbohydrate complex from Prunella vulgaris. By Yongwen Zhang, Paul Pui-Hay But, Vincent Eng-Choon Ooi, Hong-Xi Xu, Gillian D Delaney, Spencer H S Lee, Song F Lee, Antiviral Res, 75:3:242-9 (Sep 2007)'.

I went to my local Chinese herbalist and bought a 160g of Prunella vulgaris ( self heal) for AUS$4 a bag. I was advised by the Chinese medicine practitioner to divided the bag into 4 by 40grams and to make a tea from each 40g part. I was to boil 5 cups of water down to 3 cups and, and drink. Do this for 4 days. From day 1 this really aided in shorting the severity and length of the outbreak.

I have been making this tea on and off since and I have only had one outbreak since then, Sept., versus what seemed a constant outbreak.

I tried another experiment. I concentrated about 1 cup of Prunella Tea, down to 1 tablespoon and mixed it with an acqua lotion from the local pharmacy. This lotion is frequently used to 'add' other lotions to it. You local pharmacy will have it and it is fairly inexpensive. I paid AUS$12 for 750g jar of it. I mixed roughly the 1 tablespoon of liquid and highly concentrated Prunella vulgaris with ~-7- 10 tablespoons of the cream. I apply it once in the morning and once at night to the infected area. Keep in cool in the fridge. It feels nice when you put it on and does not sting.

My one and only outbreak over the last ~3 months lasted 2 days, without pain or discomfort. The outbreak place is in a crease on my leg, where I get eczema frequently. The added benefit of this cream is that my eczema has also disappeared.

Please note: I am not selling anything nor trying to encourage the sale of a product for self gain. The Prunella vulgaris has definitely made a positive difference to me and is an very inexpensive solution. I am sharing my experience with you, for your own information.

I have researched Prunella vulgaris (aka Self Heal) a fair bit and have not seen any evidence, either medical or private that states there is any risks to taking Prunella vulgaris as an oral or topical. If you should find an article, please advise.
