Hello Folks, I've been coming to this forum for awhile, usually after I get a breakout of GH and I've tried several of the methods here with some success so I thought I would share my experience. I get breakouts 2 or 3 times a year and here is what I've found helps the most. First off I can not stress the importance of a healthy diet (No sugar!!! ) the next most important thing is Sleep make sure you get lots of it. When I get any signs of outbreaks I immediately apply 70% Rubbing alchol to the area a few times a day, take massive doses of Oil of Oreganol 20 drops under the tongue 3x per day and if I catch it fast enough and watch my diet and sleep well I can usually avoid an outbreak altogether. If it does outbreak well then I keep applying rubbing alchol and 3% hydrogen peroxide throught the first several days 4 to 5x per day with a cotton swab and it usually dries up pretty quick and reduces the healing time. It doesn't always work but it works more often then not. Good luck and I encourage others to keep posting as well as follow ups to what happens to you after treatments! If we team up we can make a difference together.
Hey everyone, I had mentioned that next month I will get retested, but I changed my mind and decided to do it by year end. Here is the reason why. I have just began a vegan diet as of this week and figure I will be ready. I still take flounder and consume the "onion garlic " drink which I believe is masking the condition with GH. Masking is not enough, I want it gone! I was still eating meat and other foods I should not be consuming so hence I am not ready to be retested. With my new lifestyle, I believe the end of the year would be better. I no longer take spirulina since I found out it is high in arginine. I only take the onion/garlic drink, cinnamon drink, lots of freshly squeezed lemon for ph, virgin raw coconut oil and oil of oregano. No more oily foods, salt, sugar etc. I try to eat mostly organic foods especially fruits and veggies raw or blanched. The fact that my friend has evidence that these two people are cured, I feel it is time I get serious. I do not want to be an old woman with this when there is evidence out there of cures. I want my life back.
Folks, do not bother with those who post that there is no cure, all things are possible. Some people want to eat the same old foods and get good result. This is insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. We also have a God who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. Oh, I also forgot to tell you I take purges and enema as well. Do not give up. The evidence is out there. I will keep u guys updated. God loves us in spite of. His nature is to love. Do not be discouraged!
Genital herpes Diet: I am aware that a healthy diet is important to prevent an outbreak of GH. Some readers swear to lay off peanuts, chocolate, oats, beer, wine, sugar, artificial sweetener etc. etc.
I wonder if a kind contributor could list out the type of food to avoid totally and also a recommended list to take to for GH sufferers.
Please pardon my ignorance. I am not sure whether the food I take is doing me any good. I take milk( pastuerised good milk) yoghurt, multigrain & wholewheat bread, hard cheese (Edam & Gouda). I also like brown rice, pasta, chicken,pork, salmon, ham, fresh salad. For fruits, I love banana. I heard it is a no no. Others include quava, grapefruit, kiwifruit, papaya, pineapple. I hope someone can point out which food/fruits I am taking is not suitable for me.
My GH regimen includes LLysine, BHT, Olive extract, Zinc, magnesium.
Hoping for a favorable response.

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!

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.
Avoid Chocolate, Peanuts and keep stress levels low! and you'll be just fine! Good Luck!
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 :)
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. ;)
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.
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.

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 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.
DMSO, Hydrogen Peroxide
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!
Echinacea for genital herpes works if you catch it early.
