I have had Herpes 1 and 2 for about 5 years. I take L-Lysine with Garlic and Red Marine Algae. Both of these together have helped to combat my outbreaks. I notice they are less frequent too. When I start to feel the beginning signs of an outbreak (tingling, etc) I take 2 Super L-Lysine and 1 Red Marine Algae. I will take these once a day until the outbreak is gone (about 2-3 days). Sometimes it stops the outbreak in it's track. Thanks!

Hey, have u tried Stabilized Liquid oxygen, (SLO)? You have to change diet and others have testified it has worked. The key is to get your body to be alkaline. There are other steps to take such as change in diet etc.

Synergy Protocol

Posted by Sweetpea (The Garden Bed) on 12/16/2018 1 posts

This is a thread for those following the Synergy protocol for herpes infection. This thread in no way is associated with the business of Synergy Pharmaceuticals. It seems to be having issues keeping threads up over at the Honeycomb HSV forum due to factions within the community. Honestly, there are massive issues in that community that they allow people to post and advise inaccurate information regarding this infection that borders on negligence and breech of duty of care in the opinion of this writer.

People would like to be able to speak freely of their experiences with Synergy protocol away from medical dogma.

EC: Are any of our regular readers familiar with this protocol? We've never heard of it before.

We'll post for now and see what kind of posts we get about it.

Hi! Did this end up becoming a thread?

I did use the Synergy protocol - Dec ‘18- Sept ‘19. My IgG score started at 14.5 and was 17.8 nine months later. I noticed after a month a huge lessening in symptoms and that continued the whole time such that I felt ‘cured' until I got my test results. I took some months off for my liver to rest and later started my own protocol using their suggested products but from different supplement providers as the company was shut down for a bit due to shipping and new ownership issues.

A year later, this past September, my IgG score was 12.5. I believe I've been symptom free since November and need to test again. I will give Synergy praise for their excellent customer service. You don't need to be a paying customer for them to help you tweak your diet and supplements. I learned from them that Vitamin C is high in Arginine - I was daily taking a few thousand grams of it. I feel truly cared for. The price is the same whether you use theirs or buy the listed products locally. In my break period I met a young lady that had been cured by their protocol but her starting IgG score was less than 3 and she started it right away. That may be critical in the cure as any score 5> is high. Sadly, she has since gotten reinfected and is back on their protocol. Her asymptomatic partner's IgG score had come down from 9 to 6 in two months on Synergy. In lieu of their mystery amino acids, I am using 500mg Glutamine on an empty stomach both morning and night, 500mg Glycine at bedtime on an empty stomach, and 500mg Methionine with food in the morning along with 45mg Zinc Gluconate and 200mcg Selenium. I take 500mg Lysine 4x/day on an empty stomach. They have approved of my added Vitamin D3, Ubiquinol, Magnesium, Vitamin B Complex, Green Tea Extract and ApoLactoferrin. Their website also suggests, and I take apart from the amino acids, Melatonin and Monolaurin. Rhodiola Rosea, Tribulus, and Astragulas in 750mg dosages are also included in their protocol and taken away from my personal protocol. They emphasize staying away from Arginine foods as the body processes it differently from Lysine and Herpes will make a little go a long way for replication. A guy I know also used it and it didn't work for him but he wouldn't give up high Arginine beer nor make any needed dietary or lifestyle changes otherwise. You may glean something from their user friendly website.


I just retested Feb ‘22: 5 mos since my last IgG test for HSV-2: 13.3.

I have had genital herpes for about 20 years and tried many thing with little relief, that is until I asked myself what having herpes was doing for me. I asked myself what brought about the choices to contract this virus and what was it teaching me. The secondary gains were surprising and as I took responsibility for my emotional, mental, physical and sexual wellbeing, the symptoms reduced to one or two per year. Now when I have a short attack of 3 or 4 days I take stock and review my thoughts and feelings and let my body do the rest.

I hope this helps alongside all the other wonderful solutions on this site.

Tanamu Oil

I was starting an outbreak of genital herpes and my husband who had just got tanamu oil for a rash told me I should give it a try, that it was terrific for skin problems. The herpes had just formed a blister so I applied the oil 4 times a day and by the third day the Herpes had cleared up! Those of you with Herpes know that these outbreaks last for at least 7 painful days so getting rid of it in 3 is pretty amazing. It's been a week now and it hasn't come back! You can buy the oil online. It's originally from the South Pacific and they swear by it down there! Good luck!

Tea tree oil really helps me to prevent herpes outbreaks. When i feel the infected area starting to become itchy, which is a symptom for me that i'll be having an outbreak, i apply tea tree oil 2 to 3 times during the day. This prevents any sores from appearing.

I can totally back this up. Tea tree oil is great for herpes, wherever it may be. Apply it as soon as you feel an outbreak coming.

Tea Tree Oil is the only thing that has worked for me. As soon as I feel any tingle or pain or itch I put some on a cotton pad and apply it to the area for about an hour.Then for the next 24 hours I apply it after using the restroom. If I catch it as soon as I feel anything I can abort the outbreak. If I dont get it till the blisters are already forming it usually cuts the outbreak down to 24 hours or less. I also have found taking lysin and ST. Johns wort 3x a day has really boosted my immunity and provided less breakouts.

It definitely works but apply it as early as possible, then there is a chance the blisters will be avoided at all.. When you are late and the blisters are already there, try to rub the oil as deep as possible, even try some slight scratching, so oil enters deeper - I let it burn a bit down, then you get the best results..

Hello I have been reading on all the sites about this herpes treatment till now this is the more convincing site I see out here the other are mostly fake responds, but I notice that most ppl have found a cure or they got something that did stop the outbreaks, but are waiting to get cured complete. Now for me just go get tested so see if your cured already or check what kinda results would come out, why wait so long. Everybody is waiting to drink more of the medications to be sure, maybe you dont have to wait so long. Go get tested and let us know what the results be. And also ppl post some information about some cure and you never see them or hear from them again so whats up with that?

After two weeks of taking Oil of Oregano P73, ACV and Olive Leaf Extract, my Blood Pressure measured in today at 92/60. After doing some more research, all three of these things are known to lower BP, so please be careful.

Hi Ted, I've been an big fan of you for a few years now. Never have replied to anything but am always reading your posts!

I believe I have some form of the herpes virus in my bladder. It began 2 years ago with what felt like a UTI that never showed bacteria. I went to a naturopathic doctor who treated me for 'a virus in your bladder'.. Never telling me what kind because he didn't know. A few months down the road I began taking high doses of l-lysine and Vit. C for cold sores and noticed, miraculously, my bladder symptoms became less. I have had insomnia and wake up every night at 4am unable to go back to sleep since this started but when I take lysine I am able to get an okay night sleep. I also try to stick to a 'herpes diet' and have noticed improvement from the exclusion of nuts.

I'm sorry this is so long. What I am wondering is, would the same remedy work for having this virus in my bladder (possibly kidneys I don't know)? I believe with all my heart that many people diagnosed with interstitial cystitis, as I was numerous times, have some un-detected virus in the bladder or urinary tract. I have read the Epstein Barr virus loves the lining of the bladder. Go figure.

CURED!!! I've suffered from GH for years and tried several different natural remedies, to no prevail, UNTIL I heard about Oil of Oregano. It has to be the one that was ORIGINALLY made from wild meditteranean oregano. Not imitators. This brand is the strongest source on the earth. Put 5 drops under the tongue, 3 times a day and hold it there for at least 30 seconds. Also, I took 3 capsules of Oregamax twice daily. The symptoms were gone so quickly it made my head spin and they haven't returned!!! I am going to get tested again soon and I will post an update. I know my body is clear of this ugly virus. I can feel it!

There is a Doctor who wrote a book about the oregano cure and stated that Oil of Oregano (has to say P73 on the bottle) disintegrates the herpes virus from the body, seeking it out of it's hiding place. You must continue to take the drops for a couple of months at least to eradicate the virus completely. It is such a relief! I can get married and have a family without having to worry about burdening them, as I have been burdened, with this horrible virus. I must also add, that I have done alot of spiritual healing and that has helped with the emotional issues that came hand in hand with this virus. I know that there is a higher power and he put natural cures on this earth for us. I am so grateful for that. Thank you for reading. I know if you have faith in these wonderful cures and give them a try, using them consistently, that you, too, can be cured!! I wish you happy healing.

Hello Cured from Chicago. I just bought some of this Wild Oregano Oil online today. I will be receiving it early next week. I read to do a combination of internal & external treatment with this oil. I also read that genital HSV-2 hides at the lower portion of the spine along the nerve pathways. Is there a specific location along the spine to rub the oil externally? I know where the lower spine is located but a particular lumbar(s) area?

I guess I can just rub a general area at the base of the lower spine to make sure it's covered. I'll start out at 3 drops twice daily internally & increase gradually to the 5 drops 3x daily. I've suffered from HSV-2 for over 17 years. This looks like a promising cure! However, I'm also going through a candida cleanse/protocol provided by Bill here at EC as well. Heck, maybe by the time I get this candida overgrowth under control the HSV-2 might just disappear as well but why wait?

Plus, the oil is also antifungal as well so it can only help with my candida problems too. I probably even have other viral infections I don't know about. Can HSV-2 spread to other parts of the body especially if you have a candida overgrowth? I think with all of my health problems I might even have EBV(Epstein-Barr Virus) even though I've not been diagnosed with it.

I'm sure I have other viral related concerns though. This oil will take care of a lot of my health issues. I bought enough for at least 2 months of treatment. Hopefully, I can get rid of this awful candida problem & take care of the HSV-2 and/or other viral overloads with my complete protocol for candida & now the Wild Oil of Oregano multiple cures. Thanks & God Bless!

I have not been tested yet but I have had literally no symptoms since I have been taking the Wild Mediteranean Oil of Oregano consistently. I now take 7 drops, under the tongue, twice daily. Oh, and I use super strength Oil of Oregano. It has 3 times the potency. I plan to continue taking it for several months before getting tested to make sure the virus is completely disintegrated.

I'm really confused by Ted's remedies for curing Genital Herpes as they vary with each posting. Plus, although I want to believe as much as anyone that there is a cure, when he mentions treating a man and then this man is outbreak free for five years I don't think Ted can necessarily claim it as a cure, because there are people on this message board who also claim not to have had an outbreak on over ten years. But then they do. I think the 'testing' of anyone who is cured would need to be more thorough, such as deliberately trying to evoke the virus with all the no-no foods, such as alcohol, peanut butter and so on. Does anyone have any thought on Ted's remedies or such?

Ted has given his wisdom to you and us for free here in these pages and he is also being persecuted in his own country for doing so.

Our medical system that we are all funding rarely cures anything and what does get fixed has other side effects . The meds they are selling at a premium have two prices, one in dollars and the other in long term side effects still wreaking havoc on me. You are free to choose your course!

Ted, so eating olive leaves will eventually kill the herpes virus? Or am I required to do all the therapies you listed above? If not which ones do u recommend the most?

In Ted's remedy he suggest "5% concentration of Zinc Chloride and a 5% concentration of Magnesium Chloride." solution 4 times a day? Is this topical or should it be taken internally? Can someone please provide specific instructions?"
