At 40 I starting using Saw Palmetto for BPH, benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of the prostate) to control the life altering affects of not being able to urinate and feeling like you have to pee all the time. I have had genital herpes since 1983 or so. I had stress related outbreaks 1-2 times a month for 2o years. healing time about a week. I noticed, how could I not notice that I have had only 1 very small fast heeling (1day) painfree outbreak in 18 months. I take 450 mg once a day in the morning. I also have oral herpes, oh that is embarrassing to say the least. About six months ago I started using an online product from healing natural oils. www. amoils. com I would also get stress related outbreaks on my lips about once a month, with 1-2 weeks to heal. I rub the oil under my feet twice a day. I would always get an out break after being outside all day. Now I have a high stress outbreak about every 6 months, it does not turn into a blister and heals in 24 hours. No unsightly sores to embarrass me in public. I never get an outbreak after being outdoors or camping. I used saw palmetto a year before using the oil, so I know that the saw palmetto worked for me. Hope someone finds this helpful.
Avoid Meat Injected With Msg
My friend is a nurse and she said that people with the herpes virus should not eat chicken.
In the past i have always used anti viral drugs to control my outbreaks. After 8 years of very frequent outbreaks & almost daily medication i can say that i have finally found the key to my problem:a healthy diet. When i was diagnosed, i was never explained any information about how diet can influence or bring on an outbreak.I was told that antiviral medication is what i needed, with out any knowledge of other more healthier,natural alternatives. So since reading & sourcing as much information i could find on controlling my outbreaks, i discovered that eating foods high in alkaline & avoiding foods high in acid completely knocked out my outbreaks. Lemon/Limes are a big part of my diet & i can say that these amazing fruits avoiding chocolate,coffee,beer etc have turned my life around for the better :)
Avoid Chocolate, Peanuts and keep stress levels low! and you'll be just fine! Good Luck!
Tea Tree Oil
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 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
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 (http://www.doctorajadams.com/OilOfOregano.html):
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 tried the apple cider vinegar cure i take (drink) 2 to 3 shots a day, and also rub it on my privates when I take baths every day. Now its been 2 months and no symptoms sores or anything i still take the shots and rub down in it in the shower but if that's what it takes to never have another outbreak that's Ok with me it can be a little strong so if its to much just add a little water and hopefully you too can feel relief.
Apple Cider Vinegar
IT HAS BEEN NOW OVER A YEAR TAKING ACV 1.OZ 3 TIMES A DAY AND I HAVEN'T HAD ANY OUTBREAKS... AND THE ARTHRITIS AND CARPOLE TUNNEL ARE GONE.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I break out in hives from food allergies. The last rash of hives was very bad and would stop itching so I rub AVC on it and it burned but the itching stopped and the rash wash gone in about a week.
I also have herpes so I though I would try it on a sore and again the itch disappeared and the sore healed in two days. Next I am going to try drinking it and hopefully it will help prevent the allergies and outbreaks. I applied the AVC twice a day with a cotton ball.
