Genital herpes topical application. Tried many different things. These are the most effective cures I have found when I experience an outbreak. Mostly I rotate between a few drops of a colloidal silver dmso solution and bht in liquid dmso. 2 or 3 times a day I will rub a very small amount of organic virgin coconut oil on the sore followed by a drop of dmso. Occasionally I do a combination of 2 or all 3 at the same time. I think the bht dmso is the most effective of the 3 but I definitely see visual results with the silver as well. The coconut oil doesn't do much for me aside from cutting down on soreness and irritation. But this regimen seems to get rid of my outbreaks within 5 days or less. Which might not sound like much but before I started using this combination they would last 2 weeks to a month.
BHT, Oil Pulling
Greetings from the UK! I have recently been researching natural remedies for HSV and HPV and stumbled across Earth Clinic. I am currently looking to improve my overall health by detoxing my body, eating healthily etc prior to starting either an H202 protocol or the BHT protocol (sooooo much information about both, I am feeling like a rabbit in headlights! ) I think I am leaning towards BHT...
I am a long term HSV sufferer (although I use the term 'sufferer' relatively loosely, as I tend to get only 2 - 3 mild OB's a year. I was diagnosed in 2001, sucked it up and got on with my life. I believe (although not formally diagnosed) I have had HPV for approximately 4 years also (a fellow HSV partner, who very kindly shared this 2nd gift).
As part of my research for getting uber healthy in preparation for the BHT protocol, I have been reading about the benefits of oil pulling - does anybody know of any reasons why I could not combine this while on BHT? I want to give my body the best chance possible, so am concerned that one might contra-indicate the other in some way... I would be opting for the 100% pure organic coconut oil.
This is a great site by the way, I wish I had searched for it many years ago!
Bitter Melon for Herpes! I had started to have regular outbreaks of genital herpes and I scrambled everywhere for a cure. I found that Bitter Melon is used for Acyclovir resistent herpes so I figured if it works for Acyclovir resistent herpes it must work wonders for the regular herpes. I take it as directed and I have not had any outbreaks since then. When I first started taking it my outbreaks became less and less and less bothersome until I have had no outbreaks. I had an outbreak recently because I stoped taking the Bitter Melon but it was only for two days and I got right back on the Bitter melon and I'm all good now! I thank God for all His herbs He provided for us!!! I prefer the Solaray brand which is the most effective for me. It's hard to find in stores so you're better off buying it from Amazon.com which makes it a bit pricey but TRUST me it's worth it. 'I hope this will help many of you and God bless!

Bitter Melon for genital herpes. I used get the outbreaks every month for many years. One would finish and then a within a week it would be back. I went a few years like this. I then started working near a Chinese food court and quite often would eat bitter melon there. Thinking back that's about the same time my outbreaks started to decrease and came only 2 or 3 times a year. After getting on the net and doing some research about herpes I stumbled upon bitter melon as a weapon against herpes. Put 2 and 2 together. Must be something to it and I would say it's worth it to add it to your list of healthy "foods with benefits" list. Last but not least it's not called bitter melon for nothing. An acquired taste and can be bought in tea form too.

Mountain rose herbs has the actual bitter melon, just google the name and it will pop up. I get all my stuff there.
Was just reading up on this site on natural cures for Herpes 2 with a cup of black tea in my hand. Thought, "Gee, I can try this out right now", took the warm tea bag, broke it open, and applied the black leaves on the sores (really packed 'em in good, as I am a woman) and continued to read for another half hour. Upon gathering up the leaves and washing them away, ahhhhhhh, relief! The most I have felt in more than a week! I cannot believe that my infection decided to take a turn for the better just as I applied those leaves. There must be a connection! Goodby Valtrex!! It has made me very forgetful and detached. Have not been getting my work done. Will update.
Black Tea is a remedy to drink against hsv, also, placing a tea tea bag on the sores, truly desperate do both (the tea bag should be luke warm for placing on sore leave for a good bit & do time & again throughout the day-also, place tea or tea bag in a plastic in freezer and do the treatment-works! It is an antioxidant naturally & the Tannin acid makes it unbearable for the virus! Hope this helps anyone-I know that this ailment is a sentence in hell for me for the past 14 years! I would not wish it upon my worse enemy trust me.
Black Walnut Hull
Black walnut Tincture.
I struggled with Herpes 2 outbreaks almost monthly until I went to a kinesiologist who prescribed Blackwalnut Tincture. It's now been about 15 years since my last outbreak so either it went into total remission or I have been cured completely. I really hope this works for others. I took it internally (you can't take BW for too long) and I cannot remember what my dose was but I don't think I took it for a particularly long time. (6-8 weeks?) You can also apply it topically on any sores. I really hope this helps anyone struggling with outbreaks.

Build your immune system up
If you are suffering from herpes one or two you need to build your immune system with vitamins. I currently take a women's gummy multivitamin by nature bounty and 2000 iU of vitamin d which are gummy from Walmart. I take this daily and so far I haven't had any issues. I eat a regular diet ( must eat meat)but I try to stay away from sugary foods. I take salt baths a few times a week and avoid using fragrance soaps and washing powder.
Choraphor, Zinc Gluconate
Choraphor and Zinc Gluconate didn't cure, just reduced severity. I tried choraphor and it worked ok but did not work as well as the zinc. The zinc will actually penetrate the skin and kill the virus. It reduces the healing time and makes any other outbreaks very mild. I am continuing the treatment hoping to put years between outbreaks.
Take cimetidine (Tagamet) 200mg 2tabs twice/day for 3 days to halt a herpes outbreak. It's most effective at the beginning of a flare up but has some effect even later on. This is an OTC med that can be purchased at any Walgreens or Walmart for heartburn but it also boosts the bodies production of interferon. It is not a long term solution. I have used this many times on my own herpes infection (including shingles, herpes simplex type 2) and on my granddaughter's ocular herpes with nerve involvement around the eye and scalp. It works. She was hospitalized at 5 yrs old with ocular herpes and put on morphine for pain, but it was cimetidine that calmed the herpes and she has taken cimetidine (pediatric dose) at the onset of further symptoms for 3 days as described above. She is now 12 and has had no further serious herpes pain/episodes that this couldn't suppress. (I found this remedy while researching chemo treatments several years ago.)
You may want to try BHT as it will damage and suppress the herpes virus, but you will never completely get rid of the virus as once you have it, you will have it for life. But BHT will suppress it sometimes for a long time. Start with a dosage for the first few days with up to 900 mg and then taper off to about 400 mg. BHT works best when first dissolved in oil as it is only soluble in oil or alcohol, but alcohol is not recommended. This way it is better absorbed in your system. In addition, you may want to use Lysine about 1500 mg/ day as it helps to prevent the spread of the virus. Hope it helps.
Coconut and Frankincense Oils
I contracted genital herpes from my husband after 20 years of marriage. I knew going into the marriage that he had it but anyway I've struggled with them terribly until the last two years. I have no scientific proof or I should say explanation but I can tell you what has worked and completely eliminated outbreaks which I was getting every month for a year.
Lysine didn't help and I was even breaking through the daily prophylactic antibiotic. I knew the antibiotics were not good. Perhaps God gave me the idea,
I took the healthy coconut oil that isn't refined, maybe about a cup, and dropped 20 to 30 drops of frankincense (I use Doterra) And I began applying it to the genitals which also helped with dryness at my age. Not one outbreak.
I began to think I was healed so I stopped and within a week had an outbreak. Naturally, I've been using it ever since and zero outbreaks. I can't explain it I can only tell you it's worked.
I have had genital herpes for 18 years. I have never used anything that worked faster and more effectively than coconut oil.
After a very stressful week I noticed a horrible breakout coming on. The spot on my backside was flaming red, about the size of a quarter and I knew it was going to be bad! The bump was large and it itched & hurt. I tried applying coconut oil the last time I had a breakout after reading about this on EC and it cut down the healing time dramatically, but I didn't start applying it last time until 2-3 days into the breakout. This time I applied the VCO by dipping one finger only once in the jar & then to the sore as soon as I noticed; once in the morning & once in the evening. Wow! I never itched or hurt after I started applying VCO to the area.
What normally takes 10-14 days to heal; took 4 days this time and it is completely gone! No scabs ever came about! The VCO threw the outbreak in total remission! I also took about 3000 mg a day of Lysine to help speed up the process. Simply amazing! Thank you EC :)
Treatment for herpes
If anyone there is suffering from herpes virus, please try applying coconut oil on the affected area. Even if you don't have an outbreak you can still rub coconut oil on the affected areas twice daily to stop an outbreak. Coconut oils are easily available in any Indian shops. You can also make it at home. Take some milk from coconut and boil it under high temperature. Keep boiling until all the milk evaporaes. Squeeze the white substance that is left and you will get pure coconut oil. Please try, this oil treatment it really works. You don't have to spend so much money on antibiotics and it is harmless to your body. Goodluck and best wishes

I used the apple cider vinegar on the lesions on my genital and it burned a lot for 5 minutes and then it didn't itch for hours. It was great! But it didn't diminish the size of the lesions.
Then I applied coconut oil and 6 hours later it was itching again :( But when I looked at the lesions, they were smaller! I applied 2 more times and it seems to be working so far.
I am also taking 3 tablespoons of coconut oil a day, after reading a guy's post about eating coconut oil 3x a day and being free of outbreaks.

This is Merryanne in Central FL, , , I would like you to read all the information in our files here on Lysin, L-Lysine, it will kill viruses' you would need to take it at 2,000 mg in each dose at least 4 times a day for a while, , I do not know of anyone that has used it for herpes, but I know it cured me of a very bad virle flu last Christmas, and I thought I was dying and it was cured in 3 days, not even a sniffle left in 3 days. It does kill virel infections.

Well, I am happy to report to you guys that all my lesions disappeared! I had one that looked like a genital wart, and several others and they are all gone. I am still healing but I am so glad that I read this post about the coconut oil. It really worked! I applied 3 times yesterday and today I applied twice.

I was totally devasted five month ago when i was diagnose with HSV2, the pain and the depression that come along with, and this site is a God sent. I change my diet and insert Coconut Oil in all my ailment. ( i find it delicious :) The second outbreak came a month later, but with no pain. so i use along with the coconut oil, the BOL and the DSMO. I have yet have another outbreak. Hope it stay that way. So, I keep you posted.
(Baltimore, MD, USA)
I am responding to the previous posting on Coconut Oil, and my question is: Does anyone know what BOL and DMSO stand for? She mentions this as additional treatments for herpes. Thank you. This is a great website!
EC: Michelle, DMSO is dimethyl sulfoxide and you can learn more about it here.

I was diagnosed with genital herpes in 1999. It was a shock to my system, in more ways than one. The nasty bleeding scabs, the weeping sores, the pain - and the horrible sensation on the thighs, like cats clawing at wet skin. (That's just my description.) I heard about coconut oil a year ago and decided to try it. I was guided to take it this way: A tablespoonful in a glass of clear warm water, mix it up, melt it, and drink it. I took it three times a day at regular intervals. I came off my medication, Ayclovir, and waited for the usual attack. (This was after a few months of taking the oil.) But nothing happened. In order to stimulate an attack, to force it, I ate my old 'enemies' - peanuts and bananas, in great quantities, both guaranteed to cause a herpes outbreak. But nothing happened. I have been clear of the genital herpes now for at least six months, perhaps more, and the only thing I want now is to have a blood test to be absolutely sure the infection has gone. Of course doctors will say that the virus is incurable, but something has happened here, something profound and unusual. I have an inner certainty that the virus has been battered about by the oil, to such an extent it has no power left. Of course, I may be wrong. But there is no sign of it.

I took 3 tablespoons a day of coconut oil for over a month - since I hate coconut, I quit.
I saw great results when I applied coconut oil on the lesions - they would heal quickly, in less than 3 days. Sadly it didn't last long and by my third outbreak, the coconut oil had no effect on the lesions.
(Orange County, Ca)
I eat coconut oil every day and gag each time I swallow it because it's hard to swallow oil but you can use it in your cooking, put it in a smoothy.... There are so many other ways to ingest it other than eating it straight from the spoon. Coconut oil has so many other healing properties.... Helps with metabolism, insulin, digestion... I use it on my skin and in my hair. You have to make sure you by the unrefined pure organic virgin coconut oil otherwise it won't work. :)
