Effective Natural Treatments for Genital Herpes Relief

Stabilized Oxygen Drops

Posted by Lovelytrees13 (US) on 03/10/2015

I am interested in purchasing Stabilized oxygen drops. But if it's possible, I would love a recommendation on a legit brand. Not all brands live up to what this treatment can do. Nobody who commented on the genital herpes thread mentioned any. Please contact me. I understand that you're not a clinic, but I would love some help.

I think you may be looking up the wrong tree on this one, as "Stabilized Oxygen" isn't really oxygen but a "precursor" to Oxygen when taken orally. Stabilized Oxygen is Sodium Chlorite which is not an effective topical antiseptic, but does increase oxygen levels in the body when taken orally.

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and Ozone (O3) can be used as topical antiseptics.

I have genital herpes and I don't have health care, so when I start to feel a burn or itch I rub hawiian tropic with aloe into the spots that hurt. If I catch it in time it will stop it from breaking out or it won't be as severe. Mind u this is an every day application. Apply accordingly.

Hello friends, this virus can be completely eliminated permanently from ANYBODY, no doubt I have seen it again and again working as a natural health therapist. One of my closest friends was recently diagnosed and I see many that are very much in physical/mental/emotional pain over this virus, so I want to share the full spectrum of remedies. Please try some or all, whatever calls and feels right to your intuition.

Firstly there are the remedies to take internally:

1. Fulvic Acid /Humic Acid liquid, drink 4 TBS/2xdaily - this powerful combo of minerals works to attack and destroy viruses throughout the body, plus a general free-radical scavenger. Super powerful stuff. After the first 2 months drop to taking 5x/week for another 2-4 months

2. Wildharvested Oregano Oil - take 3-5 drops 3-5x daily for 2 months, then reduce and continue for another few months, but now take breaks from it every few weeks for 5 days or so (this ensures it remains effective in your body, nothing should be taken every day long term)

3. Red Marine Algae - this stuff is awesome! Take 4 caps/day for 2 - 3 months, then reduce to a maintenance dose for another few months

4. Olive Leaf Extract - Take whatever dose the bottle recommends daily for a few months, you may try alternating it with oregano oil and red marine algae, taking all three in highest recommended doses for the first 2-6 months, then gradually reduce to a maintence dose.

5. Apple Cider Vinegar - drink 2 TBS/2x day most days permanently! ITs great for your total health.

6. Add organic garlic to your diet and enjoy daily - even more powerful add it to fresh pressed veggie juices.

7. eat an alkaline diet (lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains, etc.) and drinks lots of purified/alkaline/spring water

8. Add Reishi Mushroom to your life - capsules or tincture, go for high quality. Take this daily for as long as it takes to feel better! Super immune system power in this mushroom

9. Drink Self-Heal Tea aka Prunella Vulgaris - Awesome anti-viral and healing tonic. Research other immune system builders (too many to name here but I listed the best I know for the herpes virus) and add in to your protocol whatever calls to you. Alternate all your plant/mineral medicines, follow your intuition, and commit to 6 -12 months of healthy living/viral load detox. It's important to note that symptoms from ANY virus occur bc the body isn't working at peak performance - stress and diet and stressed/limiting/negative emotions/mental patterns usually play a big role. More on that in a second...

Here are the Topicals to apply at VERY first sign of an outbreak while you are clearing the virus (eventually you will clear it from the body following the above internals plus simply believing that you can:)

1. Melissa aka Lemon Balm - dilute, apply as needed, very effective

2. Colloidal Silver - buy a quality spray or ointment, super super deadly against all viruses even HIV

3. Oregano Oil - dilute and apply to affected area plus to the lower spine for several months (using your intuition for duration here, but its very good for the system

4. Eucalyptus Oil - dilute

5. Self-Heal Salve/Balm (harder to find but possible)

6. ACV - dilute w pure water, very effective against all viruses

7. Tea Tree Oil - diluted. I suggest combining several of the above essential oils in a carrier such as coconut oil (antiviral) or Neem Oil (antiviral). Alternate the essential oil blend with Colloidal Silver spray and/or ACV. You can also apply any of the essential oils to the bottom of your feet for extra-benefit/powerful support. Finally, YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and YOU CAN And WILL HEAL FULLY! I promise with all the miracles Ive seen in healing chronic/"incurable" conditions, this virus is a puny match for the human body/mind/spirits ability to heal. Study after study plus real life exp. shows that our mental attitude is huge role. If you believe and know you can heal, you will. If you believe the standard medical claim that you will always have the virus, then likely it will remain way longer than it needs to. Affirm that you are getting stronger and more perfect health each day. Affirm when you take your medicines how powerful they are. Eventually you will just feel so free of all virus, you will just know you are cured of the virus. Don't believe for one second that this is incurable!!!! You are beautiful and loved and lovable, and this is a chance to empower yourself by loving your body and yourself through this experience. If you are interesting in learning bout affirmations, check Loiuse Hay's Book Heal Your Body. It is invaluable.

Finally, for those who resonante with the idea of minerals, I recommend Flourite (emits highly antiviral vibration) and Orange Selenite (high vibration that really assists in clearing the vibration of all sexually-linked diseases). I don't have to hope some of this will help, I know it will help and heal back to wholeness. Thanks for being here, with love and light!

Dear Infinitepotential.

Thank you for your list of remedies!

Have you any knowledge of using Hydrogen Peroxide for this? Also... I am a few hours from Portland and I might like to hear more about this in person.

Thank you! Kitty

Well, there is BHT [ butylated hydroxytoloene ] and a very many people have successfully used BHT to treat ALL types of herpes viruses including genital herpes. BHT alone does it. You do NOT need or desire a laundry list of additional supplements for BHT to work. In fact the BHT treatment works best if kept simple. Use BHT only, by itself with a gulp of water on an empty stomach. One or two 250mg to 350mg capsules of BHT per day does work for many people as a treatment for genital herpes....Oscar

Ted and others who can help I need advice on the supplements that I am currently taking or have taken? I have not had an outbreak for the past 7 months and this is what I have been taking daily:- 1 tablet each Vit C 1000mg with Rose Hips, odorless garlic 100mg, multivitamins, vit D3 25ug, selenium 200ug, oil of oregano 1500mg, echinacea 400mg, sea kelp 30mg. Lecithin powdered 100% pure I have teaspoonful in my decaf coffee once a day. Neem moisturising lotion applied to the outbreak area.

These are the ones I do not take frequently cranberry, milk thistle 175mg, zinc 25mg, magnesium 250mg. I last took lysine 1000mg with the very last outbreak. I have also taken in the past Red Marine algae Plus still have some left.

My main concern is am doing any long-term damage with taking all these supplements? Is there some that I can do without as I honestly do not know which ones are working for me.

I really do appreciate all the advice, teachings and guidance.

Tammy, most nutritional supplements, taken at recommended dosage (read labels) are not damaging, they are health promoting. Think of your supplements as expanding and boosting your otherwise deprived daily diet. For guidance on how best to take the N. S., purchase a nutrition handbook. Here in U.S.A. Dr James Balch has sold millions copies of Prescription For Nutritional Healing; which covers the basics and well beyond.

Specifically, careful with Selenium as it can be toxic, especially in regions like where soil and water levels can be abnormally high. Take Vit-E to help your body utilize the Selenium in your body, and maybe S every other day in UK.

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?

Replied by Ellen


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.

Taking Responsibility

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.

Replied by Joost

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?

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.
