My personal cure

27 posts in this topic

First, no two people are exactly alike. My genital herpes outbreaks where from about once a month to now zero.

My solution - mega doses of garlic. I read somewhere that a person cured their warts with garlic intake as well as warding off mosquito bites. So I thought it may work with herpes being both warts and herpes are a virus form.

In between meals I took three refined extract pills (Wal-Mrt brand) each day along with two raw crushed cloves each day, for three months. I'm at month six and still no outbreaks.

I eat peanuts, chocolate, wear jeans, high job stress, etc... no outbreaks.

Is it permanent? I don't know yet.

The only reason I am here is in hopes that it may help someone else also.:)

I haven't done any of that that you are talking about, but I must ask. With the massive intake of Garlic don't you smell like Garlic?? I am in no way trying to be rude, but I know that when I eat enough of it I smell like it. and people notice.

As for my "cure" I have a serious case of the F*C* Its! I have 5 kids, a high stress job, a high stress husband, a high stress PTA and still 8 months in I am still OB free!! Haven't had one since my 1st OB.

My own experience...

Garlic seems to be good for just about everything. It kills bacteria and viruses, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol...so why not herpes?

I eat a lot of garlic, usually raw. I may go over to Walmart and get some capsules, too.

I do find that, if I eat a lot of garlic, it becomes necessary to eat a lot of parsley, too. That helps the odor thing. The chlorophyll in parsley seems to cancel out the odor.

I remember seeing some odorless garlic pills at a health food store. Maybe you could give those a try? Garlic upsets my stomach so I don't think I can try this remedy : (

To the F*c* it Queen

That's so funny, I've been accustomed to just smiling and nodding, and saying ok, then completely forgetting what just happened.

This customer at my job got stupid with me.She was persistant after I already tried to help her and explain the policies and why I couldn't do what she wanted. Finally I just kept nodding, saying ok, and just stared at her. she got so mad. it was so funny.

thats my way of just saying F it.:mrgreen:

Great! I'll try this

I am going to the store right now to get some garlic softgels and pills. i will try any natural treatment cure. I am so fed up with monthly outbreaks. I fell like it is just one continuous soar that never goes away. I've been researching all day for natural remedies. At least to lessen the Ob's and painful soarness. I hate herpes... be gone now!!

haha the f*** it cure works for me too. I had monthly outbreaks when I first got this and I worried and stressed about it constantly. When I finally realized that I should just say F*** it and DELIBERATELY try to push it out of my mind my obs decreased significantly and now I haven't had one in over a year yay! I think the power of positive thinking is greater then we think. I also like to eat a lot of garlic though too tho lol so who knows. I know that garlic definitely does have antiviral and antibacterial properties.

Has anyone here tried the Dynamiclear with good results? They sure hype it up on the website. I think I'm going to order it. I really do like the f a w k i t cure as well! I know that I was feeling a whole lot better when I was reading Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. I left it in the car the for the past few days and my anxiety has returned. Marriage troubles certainly don't help either. Also, the condition of my house right now is reflecting the state of my mind. Comments, anyone?

The brain is more powerful than people realize. I don't know if anyone has read any of the books regarding the law of attraction but it is very eye opening. Negative energy brings negative results. Positive energy brings positive results. If you are going to sit and think about the negativity of having herpes it will have a negative effect on your body. Look at the effect stress has on peoples bodies in the way of migraines, ulcers, heart pain, muscle tension, depression and on and on.

F*** It Boosts The Immune System, Garlic is Good Too

I was studying various herbs for a project and came across how Garlic was introduced to England Long ago.

When the Romans Attacked the soldiers put garlic cloves in between their toes, therefore, they fell out all over northern Europe. Maybe that's why it stinks so bad.

Garlic has been known for thousands of years to be the ultimate anti viral herb.

Then there is the F*** it cure. I am going to give credence to this.

I got a chance to view some work of Nick Hall Ph.D

Get this, he is a psychoneuroimmunologst. A WHAT?

He studied psychology, immunology and their relations, he also wrestled alligators and participated in Endurance Races.

His work revolves around the study of the body, the mind and how they relate together and effect your health. I can't quote it here but he does say something like if things get really bad you must think of something worse, that isn't happening, and be grateful that your only dealing with XXX.

The mind relaxes and the body relaxes and therefore, allows the immune system to function effectively.

There you go, that is why F*** It Works! :cool:

I actually take a regiment of a multivitamin, cod liver, and vitamin C and haven't received any outbreaks after I was diagnosed ... pretty much anything that boosts your immune system is gonna prevent outbreaks

Well that does sound weird!!! But i have been taking daily supplement and lysine and i haven't had a OB since my 1st OB. I have a stressful job, and i have been getting harrassed by the guy who gave me the herp..and i still have no OBs...I don't know if this is luck but hey whatever works for you.

For me it was the passage of time that lessened the outbreaks. Lysine did not help. I eat chocolate and drink coffee again and if I do get an outbreak now, it is around my period so mine is hormonal I think.

all natural

don't take the pills, Dynamiclear does not convince me one bit! I work in advertising- don't trust company websites- trust your instinct+body.

Aim for the best health. Curb your intake of junk food/ bad oils/ processed foods - they only help perpetually inflame your system, making it much harder to fight back with natural remedies and/or good health. The healthier you are, the better your body will react to herbal remedies. Pills- Valtrex, Accyclovir etc.. throw off your natural balance and can have terrible side effects. For one thing my Gynecologist told me that all these companies want you to be taking them on a daily basis (more profitable for them)- the reality is that they will destroy your liver (his words) if you do so. Most people note that when they go off them, they have breakouts- why? because your body can't naturally match all that crap those pills contain.

So

Attitude is everything. Be positive, eat healthy, if Obs are an issue here are natural alternatives. I try not to take anything regularly.

Some foods work better, i'm not convinced by daily doses of Lysine through the extract. I think you should try getting them from the foods high with Lysine instead. Look them up.

For the person interested in herbal remedies, here are some of my favorites:

- Lemon Balm Herpes Care by WiseWays Herbals- (contains Organic St. Johnswort, lemon balm, red clover & plantain leaf & flower, echinacea, licorice, lomatium, dandelion, yellow dock & Oregon Grape roots, myrrh Gum, Flower & Gem essences). Its an extract I take sparingly during an outbreak.

-Pau d'arco extract - preventative, just bought this, take once in a while 1/ week or however you like

-Tea Tree Feminine Cream- by Thursday Plantation -my favorite!! "for natural feminine hygiene" neutralizes the smell and helps with discomfort/itch. tea tree is a powerful natural antiseptic.

-Echinacea (immune system) and or Golden seal (natural antibiotic) tea- to boost immune support. I have it on hand.

Also good- there are many, here are a few more: Coenzyme A, vitamin A, viatmin C, zinc, egg lecithin, essential fatty acids, vitamin e, astragalus, cats claw, olive leaf

hope this helps :0)

no luck with Dynamiclear. Tired herpes gold with mixed results. If Garlic works it is probably the cheapest way to go, next to the F! it method.

Optimum health is definitely the key but incorporating proven effective therapies can help. Dynamiclear has been around for a long time and we often recommend it because of the results we have seen. Many members on the forum have had good results with it speeding the healing time and sometimes also lowing the frequency of outbreaks. If you like, you can research some of the potential pros and cons of this treatment here: http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/dynamiclear_pros_and_cons.htm

Hope this helps,

      If I can do it so can you
      With the relative anonymity of the internet, I'm comfortable sharing this. My story sucks. Always considered myself a really good looking guy, and always very sexual, with everything going for me as I was told by my family, friends, teachers, fellow students, coworkers, you name it. Every day I woke up with mixed feelings ranging from how I was somewhat disappointed in the results I was getting in life (no dates, no sex, no decent jobs at a significant number of days) to excitement that it's a new day and I'm gonna make something of it (going to college, applying for jobs, finding cute women to talk to) and over time, it started going more to the disappointing end. I was finding myself dateless, wondering how I could be so charming, but so perpetually single. I graduated from college a virgin. There were times I was shallow, and there were times I felt I had a serious connection and the other person just somehow was oblivious to it. I hired someone at age 25 to end it. About a week later I had my first outbreak. ... So this sucks. A lot went through my head. Why me? I'm meant to be single. Now I still have basically no experience in dating or sex, which I still considered my favorite hobby the whole time even though I never even experienced it, and yet I have this unknown disease causing me to feel and look unpleasant in an area only one person touched intimately. What does it count for to be someone who has some potential and yet I'm working a horrible dead end job with a college degree and the economy sucks etc? Then there were times I was unemployed, had no one to talk to besides family, but no friends who were still around driving distance etc. I always stayed physically fit, addicted to exercise, rarely ever get sick...but dang the outbreaks were horrible, and I kept trying to deal with them and hoped they would stop because that's how I normally dealt with sickness. After about 2 years of this I changed my mind and went to planned parenthood to see what they could do about the outbreaks. They wondered how the hell I dealt with this for 2 years, having outbreaks, no medication to suppress it. I was not having a good day, so I just said something like "Well life sucks and so does this virus. Shit happens and I just ignored it." They actually seemed surprised and prescribed me acyclovir. Well, after taking it for a while, I started wondering why I didn't. No side effects, and I could drink coffee, consume chocolate milk, etc without worrying about it. After some time of this, it started setting in. Herpes is not a big deal, actually. I started genuinely believing it, and more importantly, fully knowing it for a fact. Cancer sucks. Herpes with proper treatment, is no longer even affecting me anymore. And I'm still desirable to the right person even on the off chance that somehow, a now asymptomatic virus would somehow pass through to another person. I went through some pretty crappy jobs, and finally found one that was reasonably permanent (it still sucked but at least I could pay rent and car insurance and food) and life came together again. Except for the dating thing. But at least I became open to it again. So I started talking about a lot of these issues (except having HSV2) to a neighbor of mine. About working crappy jobs, liking to exercise, cooking and food in general, frustrations in dating because people aren't genuine, sometimes we'd have a beer or smoke cigarettes (I switched to ecigarettes which definitely helped cut back on the outbreaks btw) and this became a pretty daily thing. We went out to the bar with another friend of ours and at one point she told me "Only because you're so charming." She hinted at how she's looking for a guy who gets her situation and such. So one night I was working and figured I'm gonna see her when I get home because she's always there. So I better make out with her. Well, she really liked me. I told her about my condition one night after about a week of us somewhat officially, but not officially together, dating..about my condition. How the odds are that it won't be transmitted but there are no guarantees. She didn't bat an eye. When I said the H word she said "Ok." So we had our conversation about it, she said she had a friend with that condition and understands it doesn't make you who you are, and there's a good chance it won't be transmitted. I did not tell her the exact timeline or anything about how I caught it exactly. Actually while we were friends I gave her a different story about how I was with 3 women in the past, lost my virginity at a later age but gave a different number than the real one. I told this to anyone when it came up to keep the details relatively private so that wasn't a personal thing towards her. Well, one night we were cuddling, I got a bit excited. So we took things further. Really further. Like, we now live together as husband and wife, what's mine is hers and vice versa further. I also cleared things up at one point about the actual story, apologized for lying, and she understood. All she said is that "it happens don't worry" and we've been having some seriously mind blowing sex on a routine basis. Like, so good I ended up researching something called "simultaneous ejactulation" which I never even thought possible, or considered the possibility of, before I was with her. She still does not seem to have HSV2. She was tested about a year ago, and is due for another test. But at least we both know if she catches it we know what to do. I was initially really worried about giving it to her when I was uh, well, giving it to her, but that fear passed after a while. Anyone still reading this might be in the boat I was in wondering how they'd meet someone else or find love. Well, it's beyond the physical stuff like what you look like, what you drive, what you do for a living, how much is in your bank account, and let's not forget "Through sickness and in health". Don't focus on the negative. Think about what you have going for you. You know someone who accepts you is a genuine person and you obviously have their interest. You've been through some hardship like I have, dealing with an overrated stigma. I know after all the crap life somehow put one person through and that person happens to be me (some of my hardest stories aren't even in this post) I ain't the weakling I once was. HIV, cancer, schizophrenia...those are diagnoses that change everything. Even a flare up didn't stop me from going to the gym and squatting over 300 pounds or going to work for 10 hours. All I know is, when we're together, there are no dark secrets; only dark stories. And it doesn't matter to us, because it's us.

      My fiancé has never seen me with a cold sore
      This may sound ridiculous but it's a genuine fear I have. I'm about to get married in a few months however my fiancé has never actually seen me with a cold sore. I'm concerned of his reaction.  He does know I get them. One night we were at my parents' house and my parents brought up my embarrassment whenever I do get cold sores. He didn't say anything. I didn't see his reaction due to the fact I was staring at the ground hoping for some kind of escape from my awkwardness. I acted like it was no big deal but on the inside I just wanted to crawl under a rock.  Hes a great guy. Hence why I'm marrying him however I am scared of his reaction the first time he sees me with a cold sore. I'm not scared of him rejecting me and calling things off but more so just being grossed out by me. I'm clearly very insecure.  Do you think maybe if I let him know how insecure it makes me feel that he would be more understanding? I'm not even sure how to bring up the subject.  So he knows I get cold sores but has never actually seen me with one. Has anyone ever been in a similar situation and can offer advice/support?
