I am now still in early stages of using H2O2, so am avidly reading the entries for Candida. For herpes, I was clued into l-lysine some years ago, and it is great. Foods high in L-lysine are listed on the internet, and also foods high in arginine, which is in chocolate, nuts, popcorn, brown rice and other foods. Arginine is used in labs to GROW the Herpes virus, so those chocolate and nut snacks can give you an attack! I have purchased l-lysine over the internet and also at some grocers and health food stores, and just keep it handy. Often when I want to eat some chocolate, I pop some l-lysine soon after and no problem. It is a harmless amino acid and resets the balance in your system.

Candex is very good for Candida but so expensive, I am happily taking the H2O2 and wanted to check increasing the dosage from 8 drops in an 8 oz glass of water 3X a day and here is all this information for me! My Mother and Grandmother died young of breast cancer and I began researching things that cure cancer as I realize the AMA is not chock full of 100% doctors, and found ESSIAC. The herbs can be purchased pre-measured from the Herb Products Company in Hollywood. I am 62, teach yoga and breathing techniques, doing them myself daily and am very healthy!

I just wanted to post this and get some feed back. I'm a big fan of vco so this was a little confusing ...

High arginine foods (These may aggravate herpes virus.) -- Hazel nuts, brazil nuts, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, cocoa, chocolate, peanut butter, sesame seeds, cashews, carob, coconut, pistachio nuts, buckwheat flour, brown rice.

EC: vco = virgin coconut oil

How did the H2O2 work? I read that its supposed to kill viruses because they cant survive in an oxygenated environment. Did you cure your herpes? If so do you attribute it to the peroxide treatments?

Hi, i have read some of the feedback on your site and found it very interesting. I contracted genital herpes in 1981-2. I went to a clinic and they gave me the bad news. I asked what should i do when i get the outbreak as it was so painfull. The answer i got was "run and bath of warm water and pee it that ". mmmm very good. At that time there was no cream on the market or any other forms of treatment so it was a case of suffering for many days. I get the itch and the sore leg and the depression. But as time has gone on it has lessened and i have very few attacks so count myself luck in some respects but let me say i had my share and have sympathy with anyone who has herpes now even with all the treatments you can take. I did start to use a cream after many years called Zovirax which helped a lot.I do find or have found that a healthy diet and i don't mean drinking diet drinks and eating dietary food i mean eating veggies and drinking plenty of water seems to have helped me. I also do eat plenty of garlic and love spicy food.I also think that getting depressed about having herpes actually does not help as the depression brings on the attack. Maybe i am wrong but i feel that feeling down doesn ot help.So try and keep positive about the situation. Man it's not going to kill u unless u give it to the wrong person ahahahah.

To David from Manila: For Herpes or any other virus, I would be taking L-lysine 2 grams (2000mgm) 4 times per day.

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 :)

Lemon is high in acid no? Also ACV is high in acid but ppl say it works. Im confused.

Both lemon and ACV are acidic in nature but have an alkalizing effect when absorbed into the body. I eat lemon all the time (and take it w/ baking soda) and ALWAYS my pH level increases right after.

Herpes 1 & 2: My husband and I have had HSV 1 [in my mouth] &2 for nearly 20 years; we are both pretty healthy [he is a Vegan, I eat chicken may be four times a year, so primarily a vegetarian diet]. Try to eliminate sodas, anything artificial and meat from your diet if possible and anything with Yeast and ALL Fungus foods like Mushrooms, Cheese from Animals. -There are too many delicious alternatives today not to.

For the last twelve months we cut all yeast from our diet, began taking Olive Leaf Extract capsules for nearly twelve months and began drinking at least 2-3 cups of Cinnamon Tea with Honey daily [which I make every week]. We also incorporated Blackstrap Molases and Apple Cider Vinegar daily [1 tbs ea. to 8 oz. of room temperature distilled water] twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. In addition to our daily liquid vitamins, minerals, greens.

Anyway, we have not had any outbreaks or symptoms in at least the last nine months where we always had two to three outbreaks a year and I believe eating healthy foods like raw fruits and vegetables in addition to Olive Leaf Extract and Cinnamon [which are both anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacteria and kills yeast].

In regards to the Cinnamon tea, I usually heat up a large pot of water boil for 15 min. add 3 to 4 cinnamon sticks, cover, add about a cup of raw and unheated honey and leave on the stove overnight and put in the refrigerator the next morning and drink all week and repeat as I get low [usually makes about a gallon and a half. It is so delicious, just make sure to brush your teeth afterwards, it will stain your teeth. ;)

I read on Earth Clinic to drink cinnamon tea to do a SERIOUS cleanse of the uterus. (I'm trying to rid myself of a non-cancerous, non-fibroid tumor, without doing a D & C. ) I wanted to add a warning to this thread that it can also cause a miscarriage. I'm not worried about that, but women need to be aware of this concern.

For genital herpes, use DMSO as soon as you feel it coming on. Dab Dmso directly onto lesions. Also rub liquid Magnesium onto spine - that's where virus hides when its dormant. Herpes hates Mag and coconut oil.


DMSO

I contracted it from a girlfriend about 40 years ago. I suffered outbreaks about 6 or 7 times a year. I had read about DMSO, can't remember where I first noted it.

I first used DMSO after I suffered with the problem for about 5 years, during which I had outbreaks. I read that the virus stores itself in the base of the spine between outbreaks. I decided to apply DMSO to the base of my spine. I applied it once a week for about 6 weeks. From the date of the FIRST application I have never had an outbreak. During the period after the first application I have been involved in vigorous sexual activity with my wife or girlfriend. I believe that I am cured, but have not been tested, not knowing that such a test existed.

I got this special gift from an ex back in 2001. I use to have small ob's about 3 times a year. Then last July (2014) I had an ob. I put Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide directly on the ob and then topped it off with DMSO (liquid form, with a Q-Tip). It is now November 2015, and I have not had one ob since that last one in July 2014. I KNOW it was the DMSO that cured it! Like I said I was having ob's at least 3x a year for 11 years. Did the Peroxide/DMSO treatment and now nothing. This cannot be a coincidence. Also, since that lasts ob, about once a week I take Q-tip with DMSO and just wipe my vaginal area. Just to be cautious. I am living proof that this stuff works!

So in the past when I've gotten the beginning signs of a cold sore, I've applied a layer of pure DMSO that I got from the local Tractor Supply Company in the equestrian section. I use the pure 99% gel form. It's easier to use. Then a layer of Extra Virgin Coconut oil, then another layer of DMSO. I let it soak in for 20 minutes before I dress. Do this three times a day. Make sure the area is clean before application. If I catch the outbreak early, it never turns into a sore and goes away in a couple of days. If I drink lemon water every day, twice a day, morning and bedtime, in addition to a daily application of the DMSO and Coconut oil, then I have thus far been able to prevent the outbreaks altogether. Use fresh Lemons, not the already squeezed lemon you buy in a bottle. Also, try to avoid sugar and alcohol. I personally drink coffee every day on this protocol and still am outbreaks free as long as I maintain the regimen daily.

I wanted to clarify that even when there are no sores present, I apply the DMSO and coconut oil once a day, every single morning regardless. It just acts as a continual line of defense in case any little bit of the virus gets through to the skin. DMSO is important because it carries the coconut oil through the skin transdermally. It's pretty destructive to the herpes by itself. But the coconut is a double whammy because the herpes virus is enclosed in a "lipid bilateral envelope". That means it's enclosed in a layer of protective fat. And one of the few things that can actually penetrate that fat and help break it up to expose the virus' weakness is more fat. Hence the coconut oil. But coconut oil is also a potent antiviral that can kill most viruses in their tracks in a laboratory setting. So the coconut oil helps expose the virus by fusing with and removing that layer of fat so both the DMSO and coconut oil can attack the virus after it is exposed and unprotected; and the DMSO helps carry the coconut through all those layers of skin. So Coconut oil and DMSO are a really great team. I warn about making sure the area is thoroughly clean because DMSO can carry other things through the skin as well that may be harmful.

So I have slacked off big time on my regular lemon water regimen. And a huge outbreak popped up. I've been dealing with it for a month. This morning I started back drinking one and a half liters of lemon water a day. The DMSO and coconut oil help keep the sores from turning into blisters. But the sores would not go away. I started drinking lots of lemon water again at 9 a.m. this morning and it is now 4:30 p.m. The itching and burning has finally gone way down. So it seems the key to prevention is mostly the lemon water. I will still use the DMSO and coconut oil. I'm going to start adding in lecithin. But this is really and truly the dream combo for me. I wish everyone good luck!

Final Update: I just decided to stop everything except lemon water. I went from drinking a warm cup of lemon water in the morning to drinking a whole squeezed lemon in 1.5 liters of water and drinking it throughout the day. The month long flare that would go away went away in 2 days. Drink it with a straw so the acid from the lemons don't damage your teeth. Also drink more water with electrolytes during the day because I've heard too much le.on water can dehydrate you if you don't drink anything else with it. All I needed was to drink more lemon water and drink it through the day. So it looks like all I need is a whe lemon squeezed in 1.5 liters and drink that every day. I understand some may not be able to handle the initial acidity of lemons, but as I understand, after digestion, it actually turns alkaline and can clear up acidity and inflammation in the body. So turns out drinking enough lemon water during the day is all I need.

I used 3% h2O2 on a cotton pad to cleanse the affected skin, followed by DMSO (applied with clean hands... NO SOAP) at the first sign of itchiness (HSV2) at bedtime. Repeated for 3 days. Perfect results. Outbreak averted!! I continued to use h2O2 occasionally for the next few days.

Cold sore and Herpes CURE not treatment.

There is a natural cure for herpes. You need to buy DMSO and 35 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide, this is applied to your back upper for cold sore and lower for genital. Please google this info DMSO and 35% percent food grade hydrogen peroxide. Many studies have showed that the hydrogen peroxide has also worked curing cancer but cannot be used in the USA.

If using DMSO for herpes hs2, mix a little 3% h202 and place on lower part of spine or for hs1 base of neck and let sit for 30 min...at sign of outbreak do once a day for 3 consecutive days...it works a treat...

EC: Do you mean mix a little DMSO with 3% peroxide and apply to the spine or neck? Thanks for clarifying!

Hi EC, Looks like this correspondent from the UK is saying to apply the above to the lower spine for herpes simplex, type 2 and to apply it to the nape of the neck for herpes, type 1.

Remember to cleanse the area where you will be applying it thoroughly just before using and I suggest cleansing with H202, not alcohol or soap. Remember DMSO is the most absorbable stuff known and it is also known to carry anything on the skin inside with it when it is absorbed.

I was diagnosed in 1985 with GH, I have found that Echinacea has reduced attacks to once a year. When I get the first signs of an attack I take 20 drops in water 3 times a day, after 2 days its gone. I have also noticed that attacks are very much related to stress and that daily meditation has helped me a great deal in reducing attacks.

After more than 30 years of trying to get rid of herpes, I tried apple cider vinegar (2 tea spoons on 8 oz water early mornings) and it worked for almost 3 months, but it came back viciously. Reading Edgar Cayce's remedies on herpes, I started 1 minute gargles with Glyco Thimoline, 3 times daily, after brushing my teeth. IT WORKS! I had more than 4 months free, until I had to travel abroad and run out of Glyco. Now back to the Glyco gargles, I've had almost 2 moths free up to date. God bless Edgar Cayce and Earth clinic.
