I've been expriencing herpes symtoms. I am worried I will lose my job because I have medical exam each contract. I'm working on the ship, my family is waiting to me and my girlfriend. Having herpes means you will be rejected to medical exam. Please help.
EC: Hi, you will find some suggestions on these pages:
I have had an ongoing issue with a whitish discharge, doesn't seem to smell, but I notice it every time I shower & clean myself out. I've made appointments with my gyno but every time she checks me out she cannot find anything, maybe because I'm showering before I go in (not sure), but each time she's prescribed antibiotics which haven't worked. So I gave up! It seems like I've had this forever. Question, is this normal or is it some kind of infection or STD? Just about 2 years ago I noticed a lesion on the outside top part of my vagina still in the pink area right before the hair. I again went to my gyno & she said I had Herpes, which is really surprising to me since I've been with my husband almost 22 years & have not been with another man. Just recently I've been having break outs from this, which is leaving me feeling fluish each time - I'm wondering if the 2 are some how related. If any one else has this problem & what anyone recommends for me to use. I am new here but I am not into medications & would love to hear about some natural cures. I've been reading on here for months but don't know really how to tell what exactly I should be using, ugh - help!!! I think doctors are to easy to prescribe antibiotics & I refuse to be their test subjects any longer.

I have been diagnosed with genital herpes (visually by doctor, still waiting on lab results). I refuse to believe that I am stuck with this virus for life. I refuse to take medications that will not even cure me but cause more side affects. After extensive research into alternative treatments such as colloidal silver and hydrogen peroxide; I came across some really interesting info on a product called IV-7.
Here is a link to a youtube video of a man who cured a cyst that could have been fatal.
It seems to be similar to colloidal silver but the silver is reduced to a pico size instead of nano. Which from having a electrical background I know pico is. 000000000001 vs nano .000000001.
This stuff is sold as a disinfectant but has selling points like this
IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense for food contact surfaces kills a broad spectrum of viruses, bacteria and fungi and is approved for use on surfaces with which food has direct contact without the need to be rinsed!
the genteleman also mentions it has a zero toxicity rating and that he knows people who have cured herpes-1 and 2.
I would like any and all thoughts on this as I am seriously considering it. Thank you.

I was diagnosed with GH almost 6 years ago I tell u it was the worst thing that could happen to me,because the person knew he had it and infected me on purpose, yeh sure I should have let him give me oral, but I was caught up in the moment like many of you,This bastard ruined my life,I tried to get the health dept to stop him,who knows how many women he infected? I was too embarassed to call the police, I will never forget that outbreak, sores itching,being mesirable,I was on Valtrex but that made me sick do I stopped,6 years later no outbreaks at all,everbody is different, not a sore or lesion, some stings sometimes, but I go about my buisness, I think mentally Im coming along, Im 39 so at 33 when this happens and my baby was almost 3 then it was HARD to deal with,clinic visits, the doctors treated me like a leper, I would never think to give this to anyone, NEVER, I was seeing someone who knew, it was good at first but it didnt work out, oh well, if someone comes along I will always be honest, its my disease not theirs,That creep who gave it to me will get his whereever the Coward is, keep your heads up it will be ok!!!
I just found out last week that I tested positive for HSV-2. I have been looking at internet information for a cure. I do believe there is actually a cure out there because all things are possible. I am looking for a cure not a outback treatment. The doctor says it is a life time disease but I don't believe such a thing. 1) Is there someone that has actually re-tested with negative result? 2) What was you cure regiment? 3) How long did it take you to rid yourself from the disease? I understand that diet, exercise, and herbs, low stress, spiritual balance will help in immune system health. I have heard of people being cured AIDS, so I know herpes can be cure. If anybody can actually help let me know. Remember responses for cures not just outbreak treatments. I know there are real people that have been actually cured out there. Please and thank you for your help.

After 25 years of herpes, doctors, and drugs, I found what works best the hard way, by experience. And I later found it best summed up here in two short lines:
"-Avoid sugars (that creates dampness), caffeine, alcohol, spicy, greasy foods. -Keep immune system strong -Avoid stress and anger -Get adequate sleep"
Of course, we all learn about Lysine, extra Vit. C, and to avoid chocolate, nuts, too much garlic, too many berries & grapes, Arginine, etc, but the above quote is very important. I learned about sugar, caffeine, and alcohol the hard way.
1. Sugar habit = more frequent outbreaks
2. Caffeine habit = more frequent outbreaks (& hardest to quit, takes great willpower. Use 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon in coffee to lesson outbreaks due to coffee addiction. Use Honey or Agave, NO sugar)
3. Alcohol habit (especially wine) = more frequent outbreaks
4. Spicy or greasy food habit = more frequent outbreaks
5. Long held anger = more frequent outbreaks
6. Six hours or less sleep = more frequent outbreaks
7. Eating within 3 hours of sleeptime = more frequent outbreaks (because Liver can't detox blood during sleeptime if it has to deal with a long and slow digestive operation. Then your undetoxed blood is now even more toxic the next day, soon a viral overload occurs & bam, another outbreak)
* Combine any three of the above and you should expect another outbreak.
* If you drink a bitter herb tea (dandelion, burdock, yellow dock, google for more. I also use Chinese herbs that have strange names I can't recall) before you do the evil deeds, you may escape an outbreak, but the body is now weakened so these evil deeds shouldn't be repeated again the next day. Take a break from all the stimulating action.
* Mushroom extracts (liquid/alcohol) have impressive results on strengthening immune system. (When you are to the point of having a continuous outbreak, try Mushroom extracts, and PLENTY of sleep, at least 8 hours/day) How did I do it: Use 2x or 3x per day for 3 months, then off 1 month, then repeat cycle. Works best by putting 1 dropper full in mouth with about 1 tablespoon of good pure water. Swish around in mouth or hold in mouth for 1 minute or more if you can. Best absorption occurs in mouth, then swallow.
* Licorice herb tea, or extract, for 2 weeks seems to really improve immune system also. Don't use for more than 2 weeks, then take 2 weeks off, then use again if needed.
* Force yourself to go to bed early as a regular habit. And avoid the late eating.
I've had herpes for a very long time and there's one thing that seems to trigger an outbreak without question and i know this will sound weird. the only thing that i can say deffinately causes an outbreak is splashback from the toilet. anytime i go to the restroom and there's a splash large enough to get my butt wet an outbreak will show up there within 24 hours. i'm not sure why this happens but it surely does.
Genital Herpes Triggers
Thank you all for the information regarding clearing up and preventing outbreaks. I've suffered from GH for about 10 years. I find my outbreaks are related to a latex sensitivity that I have. If I use prophylactics that are non-latex, I don't usually have much of an issue. Problem is, these products are very expensive. Also have found that excessive sugar in my diet can easily bring on an outbreak. Sun seems to counteract this. I think outbreak triggers and methods of clearing up outbreaks are very personal and different for everyone. Thank you all for sharing though, gives me possibilities to try.
Gentian Violet and Infrared Light Therapy for Genital Herpes
Back in the 1980's I remember Gentian Violet used for herpes. I was 19 in the military when a GF (nothing sexual between us) had a genital herpes outbreak. I didn't know what it was, but there had been news reports about the new STD genital herpes. Her OB/GYN treated her with gentian violet 1% painting her private parts and shinning a red infared light, lighting her girly part. I doubt that the treatment was going to have any effect; but in seven days, her outbreak was over.
I have found a product called Traveler's Friend 'Citrus Seed Extract' which the health food shop assistant said he was sure was mostly Grapefruit seed extract. I tried it amongst many things I am exploring having contracted herpes. I am improving every day and continuing with oral coconut oil, colloidal silver and (carefully diluted hydrogen peroxide). The reason why I'm posting this is that I had three small blisters appear on the top of my p----. As well as all the rest of my genitals being affected this was too much. I put a drop of grapefruit seed extract on these three (they were close together). To my huge surprise within half an hour they had retreated, then got small scabs and healed far quicker than anything else has!! WARNING: I then got excited and put the gfs extract on other larger sores, and suffered severe pain which I think was a result of this. Nonetheless, the incredible speed at which the gfs extract turned those three sores (painlessly) into final phase needs to be mentioned and is surely worth exploring. I am now taking gfs extract orally (15 drops in a glass of water 3x/day and may increase)
I have been plauged with sores on my lips since getting kissed in high school by a guy who had a sore (I remember noticing it but didn't know what it was). I tried every prescribed medication but never really found relief, especially after the sore erupted. Over the years, I have experienced fewer outbreaks and I attribute that to: eating healthier, developing better ways to cope with stress, and including l-lysine and lemonbalm in my supplement regimine. As soon as I feel that tight, tingly spot in my lip, I load up (just about triple) my dose of the l-lysine and lemonbalm, and the outbreak doesn't come through. This has been a terrible week (including the death of a family member) and I missed that tight, tingly feeling. Today, I have blisters. I've read and read and read everyone's posts. I'm trying the hydrogen peroxide treatment and calling in sick to work. I'llbe happy to post the outcome later, but I wanted to let you guys know what I've found that prevents the sores to begin with. Research for your self to determine the best dosages and frequency of before you begin any herbal supplementation, but I personally attest to the effectiveness of this regimine.
I had breakouts all the time. I went to a holistic doctor which gave me the following for for 45 days(Flora max 2 caps 2x a day, Colostrum 600mg 2 caps 2x a day, Red Marine Algae 500mg 2 caps 2x a day, BHT food grade preservative 2 caps 2x a day, Colloidal Silver 400ppm 1/2 tps in 2 oz of water 2x a day and Host Defence made from organic mushrooms 2 caps 2x a day. Part 1 build basic immune system and weaken the virus breakouts go away in about 2 weeks. Part 2 introduce special agents herbal medicines that kill the virus. You will continue to take Red Marine Algae, BHT and VRP Colloidal Silver. I have not had another breakout again and this really works.

For herpes, break open a vitamin A capsule and apply. I've tried everything. This helps me prevent a full blown outbreak. I get the virus on my nose!
I was reading the Herpes pages, and someone mentioned to avoid foods and drinks with arginine. I think everyone should know that virtually all sex lubricants on the market contain arginine! I have not been able to find one that did not contain this, and it causes outbreaks immediately.
