  2. I think you're right about 'having a good flow', i.e. splitting the dosage throughout the day to make most use of it. You're also right about potential strain on your body for overdoses, however there is conflicting information about this based on studies I've read. There are several of studies indicating benefits of high doses of vitamin C for fighting viral diseases. I've done quite a bit of research on this as in the past I used to suffer from common colds, often over one week in duration and up to 6 times a year. With Zinc and Vitamin C I've managed to reduce these to once a year, and their duration to under 6 days. Some of the studies used IV administration of Vitamin C, which is of course different to taking it orally, but some of them had success with high oral doses as well: Dr. Harri Hemilä from the University of Helsinki, Finland, analyzed the findings of two randomized trials each of which investigated the effects of two vitamin C doses on the duration of the common cold. The first trial administered 3 g/day vitamin C to two study groups, 6 g/day to a third group, and the fourth group was administered a placebo. Compared with the placebo group the 6 g/day dose shortened colds by 17%, twice as much as the 3 g/day doses did. The second trial administered 4 g/day and 8 g/day vitamin C, and placebo to different groups, but only on the first day of the cold. Compared with the placebo group, the 8 g/day dose shortened colds by 19%, twice as much as the 4 g/day dose did. https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/4/339/htm High dose IV Vitamin C has been shown to be effective against viral infections such as the common cold rhinovirus (Hemila and Herman,1995); avian virus H1N1 (Ely,2007;) Chikungunya (Gonzalez et al. 2014; Marcial-Vega et al,2015); Zika (Gonzalez et al 2016) and influenza (Zarubaeva et al.2017). Also oral supplementation with vitamin C (doses over 3g) appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections (Carr and Maggini, 2017). https://isom.ca/article/high-dose-vitamin-c-influenza-case-report/ We had a case in which a patient with herpes zoster did not respond to conventional therapy so we attempted to administer intravenous infusion of vitamin C which resulted in an immediate reduction in the pain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3111558/

    Being Blamed/Feeling Guilty

    Hey @Antoinette63 you do absolutely nothing. If infected with HSV-2, then the initial outbreak would have occurred within days of the infections. Symptoms after 4 months are not really likely to have been from that episode. If she does have a recent infection of herpes, then it will be from her new boyfriend!
  4. Hang on @viralfrog let’s be rational here. The male body can only usefully metabolise 100mg of vitamin C a day. Any excess does not have any known impact on the body as it doesn’t actually get to where you might be thinking it goes. It goes out via your kidneys, potentially causing toxic effects. The real trick with vitamin C is making sure there is a good flow moving through your intestines such that your body can metabolise the full 100mg easily. To achieve this, you are much better off taking a tablet of about 250mg with each meal. Anything more than 2g a day of vitamin C is not only useless but commences a strain process on your body that may include outcomes including kidney stones.

    Hang on, no one is talking about testing again for herpes. We are suggesting an analysis of the serum in the blisters that will give clues as to the cause.
  7. Currently I'm taking my Ascorbic acid at two doses throughout the day, 6g at lunch and 6g at dinner. It's already a hassle as I have to dilute it in water, rinse my mouth with coconut oil and then I take a shot of it from a shot glass and rinse my mouth quickly with water after. Even with the coconut oil, I'm worried for my teeth. I was going to order a capsule filler machine and some gelatin capsules, but realised it will cost me almost the same than just ordering 1g vitamin tablets from iHerb. Also, this means I still have to be eating 12 capsules per day which is not ideal. I wonder if I could figure out some DIY method to be able to squeeze 3-5g of the Ascorbic acid into some coating to be able to swallow it without risking my teeth. I had a look at liposomal C too, but what put me off was the quick expiration date if making it yourself. Unless I'm wrong, you have to do a new batch like twice a week.

    Thanks for the information. I also agree with Blurneworder -not doing testing again if you have already tested positive multiple occasions.

    Haven’t disclosed after months

    Awesome! I am proud of you! I was worried about the social media blast and physical harm you were writing about.

    I have to take valtrex after the first 2 years..Im cutting off meat and will be trying his food method
  14. Happybee

    Dr.sebi

    No because I have not seen no real survivors..however his diet does make sense to lessen outbreaks...no starches...meat**eat all alkaline foods** fasting** im just not sure the herbs he suggested...havent got that far..he does suggest fasting stop eating bullshit which in my case and I can verify when I never used to eat** because of my 1st outbreak was bad after it cleared.i never used valtrex..my first outbreak I never was put on valtrex the doctor told me to ride it out...after my 1st intial outbreak..i never shit expierenced until i started eating meat* breads* sugar**Im just asking if anyone really tried his method why not anything helps
  15. I don't think you really know what you're talking about, which I've already discussed after your previous comment. You're a bio hacker alright
  16. Yeah, the Bubble Boy treatment is pretty cool, but it's a bone marrow transplant fix (like the one or two patients cured of HIV). If gene editing as treatment for a minor chronic disease (like HSV) ever becomes widespread, it will likely come AFTER that approach has already been in widespread use to treat cancer and life-threatening diseases. The most prestigious research is happening in cancer, HIV, genetic conditions, etc. Researchers who are talented do branch out into diseases of lower priority, maybe because they have a great idea about it, or maybe because they can't get funding in a highly competitive area like cancer or HIV, and they still want to test their theories. It just means that it's lower funding, lower FDA priority, and a slower rate of progress, less media attention, and so more need for self-promotion and media campaigns to attract attention and funding. There is really no other way, to be sure, but it is what it is. The most probable way a "functional cure" or therapeutic vax for HSV will get created in the near term is on the cheap - essentially taking a technique developed for cancer vaccines (most likely) and applying to to creating a therapeutic / preventative HSV vaccine. Technically, they already have cancer vaccines tested in humans (though not approved yet) which are therapeutic against cancer, achieved by triggering some pretty significant interferon response and CD8+ T Cell response (exact same responses needed for HSV). Of course it's not so simple as to just take a cancer vaccine, mix in some HSV antigens, and presto, you've got a good HSV vaccine . . . But it is ALMOST that simple. If safe, such an HSV vaccine would likely be at least 60% (and maybe closer to 100%) therapeutic (in terms of symptom / shedding reduction), and highly effective as preventative. The hurdles to having something like that in-hand are much lower than a gene editing treatment - indeed most of the necessary materials are available to researchers already. Of course, it would be great to have both treatment types - gene editing and a vaccine would not be mutually exclusive, indeed, they would likely be complimentary.

    And you believe that bullshit?
  18. Glad to hear! I bought some liposomal C, 1 bottle of gelcaps and one box of packets and am slowly switching over from ascorbic acid while i learn how to make it. Sooner or later u r going to have gas and diarrhea from the AA, which does not happen with liposomal. (Of course, u can just back off the dose that is doing that to u.) Also, its a lot to keep track of, trying to take all that vitamin c throughout a busy day. I think with liposomal that is not as critical, u could probably take it just 2 or 3 times a day, and it makes sense to me that u would not need to take as much either, since you actually absorb it in that form so much better. Im really glad to hear u are feeling better!

    Dr.sebi

    I been watching dr.sebi videos he claims he cured herpes... Has anyone ever tried his products or followed his diet.. Im sure fasting and eating certain foods will help with lowering outbreaks..seems to make sense... when I first was diagnosed with genital herpes i took adderall for my adhd but I rarely ate... because of that medication. I rarely ate meat and bread.. I never had a outbreak until i stop taking adderall and start eating junk food...now im studying his food..makes sense but dont know what herbs he uses...

    My 28 Days Experiment with Amenalief

    Synergy or any product that claims it will cure you is a scam. To prove someone was cured I assume something like a ongoing PCR test would be the way. That test would test for shedding also. I believe shedding occurs fairly regularly. I don't think you can go for months without shedding. In fact, shedding may occur monthly, but I don't know for sure. In any event, if you were to take a PCR test daily for several months and there was no virus present, then it would probably mean you were cured. The only chance of a cure is through serious research, not scams like Synergy or ozone or oregano oil or ........ In animals their nerve tissue can be analyzed. Of course we can't do that in humans which is why we need something like a PCR test.

    My 28 Days Experiment with Amenalief

    I wonder, in a scenario where a cure would exist, I imagine a blood test to check if someone´s actually cured would be a nonsense, would it?...I was recently reading about that synergy pharmaceuticals thread, and in their web they show some "results". The only thing showed to confirm someone is negative for herpes is "not detected", which I assume is a blood test Igg, Igm, but, ¿isn´t it true that even if an infection is resolved, the antibodies remain present?, I mean, viral load or presence of the virus can not be determined by a blood test in case of eliminating the virus, am I wrong?
  22. Update: I stopped antivirals completely a few days ago. I'm now eating Ascorbic acid around 12g/day and added NAC 1000mg/day as I had some in my closet (originally bought for avoiding hangovers). I'm actually starting to feel better now. Still some redness, but I don't feel as lethargic as usual. I actually feel pretty alright for the last days!

    My 28 Days Experiment with Amenalief

    While I personally feel my symptoms are caused by HSV-2, several knowledgeable members here seem to doubt my symptoms look like Herpes. No doubt that I carry the virus, but it's not a bad idea to make sure my condition is caused by Herpes, because my case is very unsual. I have outbreaks practically every day. It would be very bad if I'm filling my body with high doses of antivirals trying to tread something else. Little update: I stopped antivirals compeltely a few days ago and started eating ascorbic acid 12g/day and NAC 1g per day. I'm actually feeling better, still some redness but my energy levels are getting back up.

    Simple HSV-2 Vaccine

    I’m not in the field unfortunately and I can see what you mean about many promising therapies failing. From what I have learned from just researching this stuff is that in the past there was no way of attacking the source of the infection; the latent virus. Now, at least at fred hutch, researchers have been able to do that; something previously not possible. Granted it was in mice it still proves the process can work. Science takes time and maybe I am just being optimistic but I think the large number of ppl infected gives reason to speed up approval of therapies if scientists develop them. Pritelivir for ex. was fastracked by the fda so there is an unmet need for these therapies. Just hang tough bud; things will get better.
