After I was diagnosed with HG last week, and being pregnant as well, I started looking for natural solutions right away. The one I liked while looking at this site was the one with the Flower remedies. I went straight to the store, got the essences (holly and walnut) and within a day the infection got less; within 3 days it was gone. No more agony (for now), and I'm a happy woman! Thanks.

Bach Flower Remedies
The past three years, I have had an outbreak of genital herpes outbreak every few months. I altered my diet, stayed out of the sun, stopped drinking alcohol... all the things you are supposed to do. Also took lysine daily. I then went on medication. The meds helped the severity of the outbreaks, but still did not stop the bi monthly outbreak cycle. In desperation, I looked on the internet and saw Earth Clinic's suggestion for flower remedies as a potential cure. I was skeptical, but willing to try... I located the brand of flower remedy you recommended at a holistic pharmacy and started applying it (holly and walnut) in diluted form to the outbreak area. I also took it internally 4x a day. That was a few months ago and I have not had another outbreak! I still continue to take the remedy internally a few times a day. The minute I feel that tingling, warning sensation, I put a few drops on the area a few times a day and nothing manifests. Wow. Such relief!! Can't tell you how grateful I am. Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Hey everybody! I learned of a very strange but very effective treatment for outbreaks at a Herpes Awareness Seminar in Illinois last year. It hasn't gotten much attention as it has only come to being in the last year or so. Anyway, all you have to do is soak a little bit of BBQ sauce on the area of the outbreak. The acids from the sauce seep into your skin and neutralize the problems. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and you will feel a slight 'tingle' effect. After that, clean the area off with water and then witch hazel. This really works and came as a huge relief to me! (Just one more thing, this only works when there is an outbreak present.) Glad to help!
I was averaging 1-2 outbreaks a month of HSV 2 for many years (maybe 20 years). Acyclovir stopped them if started early enough, but only temporarily. I started taking BHT 300 mg, 5 months ago and I have not had even one outbreak. I am in heaven. SO grateful
BHT for HSV
Tried BHT (1000mg divided doses; 2x daily) with St John's wort for 6 months with no improvement. Took it with 6-8g of Vit C daily.
Hi. I've had hsv2 for almost 2 years now..one night with an ex. I was suffering from this disease every single month. I only get outbreaks every 28 days..when it's that time of the month. I was nervous about trying BHT, but I'd already tried lots of other things and said why not. I tried the Oregano oil mixed with coconut oil...this didn't help at all. I've also tried extreme doses of Vitamin c and Lysine pills...this didn't help either. Finally I tried BHT, I ordered it from amazon. Because I know exactly when my outbreaks will happen, I started right away taking either 4 or 5 250mg pills in the morning with one full bottle of water. I'm now one month free of outbreaks. This is the longest I've ever gone without an outbreak, while I don't think I'm cured, I certainly think that I've found something that give me some sort of relief.
Also during the week when the outbreak was prone to come I took 2 more 250 mg pills at night so I was taking a total of 6 to 7 pills a day. During the time that I'm less likely to have an outbreak, I just take 4 pills in the morning. I will keep you guys posted hopefully I'll never have another one again. I've also bought the food grade peroxide, but haven't tried it yet because the BHT seems to be working. I hope I'm not taking too much of it.

Hi to all . I suffer from genital herpes I experience an outbreak about every two weeks. I have tried everything. From Red Marine Algae, lysine, olive leaf extract, green algae, Mediterranean Oregano oil, red Pepper, cayenne pepper, Ginger, garlic, turmeric, Prunella Vulgaris, onion water, Apple cider vinegar, multi onion blend smoothie, mineral clay and that is about it. I say that with a very sarcastic under tone.
I started BHT this past Wednesday. I am starting to feel an outbreak right now. I see some red spots coming up. They are on and around my genital area in places that they have never been before. I got a blister in my mouth Friday which is now gone. I have never had a blister that looked like what I get down there anywhere but down there. I do get fever blisters but you cannot see them at all they just hurt a little bit and that's about it. I also have one that came up yesterday inside my nose. Is this normal ? Nothing has worked to date! I will say that nothing has made it run for the hills like this . Should I be concerned about this or is this the HSV reacting to the medicine ? I did take Valtrex for about 1 1/2 years it worked. I'm not real big on taking a pill for the rest of my life. So I started doing research and found many mixed reviews on a lot of different products. I have pretty much tried all of them.
So I'm going to give BHT a shot. Is there anything else that I should take with BHT and can I take it out of the capsules and apply it directly to the infected areas or the areas that are tingling before an outbreak ?

Hello there, I have been reading about BHT and it is so controversial that I haven't decided yet if I will take it or not. I want to try it for herpes but I read that it passes your brain barriers. Please educate about this. Have you seen anyone eliminating the herpes virus with BHT? Is it safe? I appreciate your reply, blessings, Isabela
There was what I consider a very important and instructive posting from Karin from Germany regarding this issue that was posted in this forum back on March 3, 2012.
Karin`s strategy is to hit those genital herpes outbreaks hard with a 500mg dose of BHT Twice a day for 3 days at the first indications of an outbreak and then to drop that dosage to one 250mg of BHT per day with water on an empty stomach. This is what I consider a very instructive posting. Here is what Karin had to say:
03/02/2012: Paul from Otterndorf, Germany replies: "Hello Oscar, my name is Karin. I am the wife of Paul from Germany / Otterndorf. After my husband has done such a great experience with BHT, I wanted to try it. I have genital herpes for about 30 years, the last 5 years I had an outbreak every two weeks, that was really cruel. I notice it every time, just before it breaks, I feel a burning sensation in the legs and partly in the face.
When it started again last week, I took the first 3 days of BHT 500mg twice daily on an empty stomach. I usually do not believe in miracles, but for me is probably a miracle happened - the herpes outbreak has not occurred. Additionally stops I feel as good as never before.
I will now continue with BHT-treatment with preventive 1x daily 250mg. Thanks again for your excellent work. All love from Germany, Karin"
Now Karin was a long time sufferer of this infection. Over 30 years. Her intuition as to how best to use the BHT for that infection is very impressive to me....Oscar
Oscar, I know BHT has worked for some people with the herpes virus, but, is it possible to have a reaction to this. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and just now, as soon as I took the pill I started itching & then appeared a bump on the site at the base of my spine. Top of my buttocks area... I only take one pill at bedtime. I suffer quite badly with this virus, every month... Any suggestions?

herpes and BHT
If anyone can tell me where to look to buy BHT? I would love to know. I don't want to give my credit card info. to some anon.company off the internet from a google search. I've read there are quite a few scams out there: especially with
companies knowing that we can't normally buy BHT in stores any longer. At least not in Los Angeles.

I read here about taking BHT for genital herpes. I tried it and it worked great. I had been managing it for years with just L-Lysine, 500 mg, but increased to 3,000 for the occasional outbreak. But it wasn't working any more. In desperation, I checked out your site for a new remedy and found the BHT. I simply take one 250 mg. capsule per day, every day, and it started to work immediately! It has be two weeks and I have not had an outbreak. I can highly recommend this remedy. I am looking forward to good health for the future. Thank you so much for all that you do.

BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS
This worked the very first time out for me so maybe it will give someone else relief too. FYI....This will be a little long because genital herpes has ruled my life for so long so I've got a lot to tell. First I'll tell you what didn't work, Bach flower therapy, I tried it for six months, no, Choraphor was good when the lesions are active but for me, I experience a lot of discomfort before the actual outbreak so I hated waiting for a lesion to weep before doing anything about it. Then the pain applying to the lesion was too much in addtion to the price. Red Marine Algae, no, spirulina, no Lysine rich diet, no..monolaurin and lysine supplements, I think they are good in reducing the severity of colds and flu but not reducing the severity of genital herpes. I haven't had sugar in about a year, I don't wear binding clothes, I stopped chewing gum with aspartame....Everything I've used or tried, didn't seem to work. I was still getting outbreaks bi-monthly. (I'm not sure why, it may have to do with hormonal changes, I always get one right before my period and now I'm catching on, when I'm ovulating). As you can see, has been a quest. The only thing I didn't try was BHT. I had heard horror stories about it. However, I was so frustrated I finally purchased it and was only on my second day of taking it AND getting over a very bad outbreak of three lesions, when I felt another one was on its way. The pain in my leg was so great I knew it was going to be a doozy too. I immediately took 700 mgs of BHT as soon as I got home that day and took 700 mgs more in the morning and the evening for 2 days straight. Once I felt the lesion raising up, I also applied it topically. I broke open about 6 capsules of it and melted it in olive oil. I used a cotton ball to swab it on down there. What I liked about it was that it wasn't painful like Choraphor. I applied it topically for 2 days as well. After day 2 into day 3, all I had was the tiniest bump which I swabbed again. This is the fourth day, and while I still feel 'remnants' of the pain there are no active lesions at all. I know this doesn't mean I'm not contagious but at least I'm not suffering from the pain and discomfort. I'm going to buy the powdered version so that I won't have use my capsules again. Meanwhile, I read up on BHT and found that St. John's Wort can be used in conjunction with it to make it more effective. Since I've had outbreaks twice a month for almost 20 years I need all the help I can get. For now this is the regimin: 350 mg of BHT, one a day St John's Wort, and two to three shots of apple cider vinegar a day. I'm also taking Stress B Complex, Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamin and Calcium. I still have lysine and monolaurin left but I don't know if I'll continue taking it since it didn't help too much before. I just may take the minimum required of both lysine and monolaurin because as I said before it seemed to reduce the severity of colds and flu. For outbreaks, I'll up the dosage to 700 mg of BHT twice daily, and swabbed the infected areas with it melted in olive oil. Thanks to the anonymous person that posted it here, it really worked this time around, I'll keep you all posted. Maybe I'll have even more good news in a few months.

BHT dissolved in olive oil is the greatest topical treatment I have ever tried. For every 5ml of oil use 5-350mg capsules or 1750mg of BHT powder. You must heat the oil but not hot enough to fry anything. Use a dropper to apply and do not contaminate the oil. Before I used peroxide and it would work but it turned my finger tips white and it left scars. There is absolutely no scarring using BHT and Olive oil and it even helps fade old HSV scars. I use it daily even when I'm not having an outbreak and so far so good. Hasn't been long enough to claim a reduction if outbreaks but the duration is like 2 days and you can't even tell you had an OB. AND it kills any pain from the ulcer. Try it.
I recently paid $10 for two pages of information from this web site: www.finallyfree.us. Basically, the information said you can cure HSV (become antibody negative) using BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) for a year or two at a dose of @50 mg to 1,000 mg (I am going by memory - you'll need to do research yourself). There is a book called "Wipe Out Herpes With BHT" by John A. Mann and Steven Wm. Fowkes. copyright 1983. which is where this information is sourced from. He said that the best source for BHT is www.1to1vitamins.com
There, I just saved you ten bucks! Hope this helps.
EC: BHT is butylated hydroxytoluene, phenolic compounds that are often added to foods to preserve fats. BHT may have antiviral and anti microbial activities. Studies are underway concerning the use of BHT in the treatment of herpes simplex and AIDS.
