    Please try this!

    I just joined this site solely to share the following and hopefully make some of your experiences a lot better: First of all, before the main point of my post, I know L-Lysine is hit and miss for HSV2. Thank God, for me, it helps tremendously. I usually don’t remember to take it every day, but I down 3,000 mg as soon as I feel something coming on, and then continue with at least 2,000 mg daily for the next week or so. This usually prevents a break out completely or at least shortens it from a couple of weeks to just a few days. I’ve also started combining it with Eleuthera capsules becaus

    Lemon - good or bad for cold sores?

    Are lemons good or bad for cold sores? I love my water with some juice from fresh lemons but recently came across an article on livestrong.com that actually says lemons are bad for cold sores? Anyone have any feedback on this?
  3. Anybody see this article out a few days back? sounding interesting... https://phys.org/news/2020-01-unique-antiviral-treatment-sugar.html
  4. Excellent well researched and referenced layman’s article on the importance of a high lysine diet for health. Some good jumping points for depth post publishing of the 5CC if one wishes to research further or experiencing difficulties in treatment. Contains concepts of some the principles of HTMA science of which the Synergy protocol is based. Although Synergy can be done with preferred diet and their generalised diet recommendations are slightly different in focus (they emphasise leaner proteins of small portions, certain vegetables as a base and coconut water). It’s not luck or magic b
  5. Hey all, Found this on GEN-03, the vaccine that couldn't fund the final trials. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31103365?dopt=Abstract Seems like they are trying to find investors possibly. Does anyone have insight on this? I would love to have a series of vaccine shots versus a daily antiviral pill.
  6. Hi there, Long time lurker, first time poster, and I'll keep it simple and condensed. I've only signed up because I realize the depths of suffering some people are in, trying all sorts of desperate treatments, and I've basically been sitting on something that has taken me to near 0 outbreaks (hsv1 genital). When I first got infected some years back, I had an atypical presentation--no pain or itching, but permanently there. Bumps going up and down within the same day even, but pretty much permanently covering the head of my penis. Doctor swabbed it--came back hsv 1; he said it
  7. Hello, fellow reader I am in the process of having the government of Canada start a experimental treatment to cure herpes. I have been following alot of the research sexual transmitted illiness, and have noticed good results for gene therapy. I reason to believe that herpes can be cured within the next 2 years. With an experimental gene treatment. With recent cure of cells with HIV using crispr cas9. I believe a cured can achieve using a cocktail of drugs and gene therapy. The process works by forcing the virus to awaken, while pumping antiviral to stop the spread of the virus. This would all

    Antibiotics against herpes?

  9. Pretty cool article discussing a study done in Vivo with rabbits targeting latent HSV1 and using what looks to be a different approach than CRISPR to prevent latent reactivation. I’m not a scientist, but the percentages quoted here sound pretty promising. https://jvi.asm.org/content/92/16/e00812-18.full
  10. I'm going to start this thread with several posts that contain a summary of my HSV experiences and observations. I've broken this down due to the length and the number of related topics I feel need to be covered. However, I feel the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, so hopefully people with invest the time to read each section. I've tried to make this less of a rant and more of an informative depiction of my experience. My purpose in posting this is to hopefully help guide others who are confused about what is happening to their bodies and to cope with the implications (in my ca
  11. Hello people well let me start by saying I've suspected that I've had HSV for years now me and my wife. But I've been to afraid to come to her with it. She's had fever blisters as she calls them and she gets huge painful bumps and clusters of blisters at the top of her butt crack and she has major irritation down there often. Which makes me believe we have it. I dont usually get anything but itching and as of lately I have irritation inside my penis and on the head but never had an outbreak. Well I had an encounter with a sex worker I used a condom but for some reason she decided to put l

    I'm not sure who else has mentioned reports of this drug, so I'm just putting this out there: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-02-class-drug-herpes-simplex-virus-.html
  13. Need some advice
  14. I need to talk about my condition to someone who is in my similar situation. Please feel free to write to me.
  15. Has anyone heard of NanoViricides Inc? http://www.nanoviricides.com/ They are working at creating special purpose nanomaterials for antiviral therapy. They will be presenting at the Ocular Microbiology and Immunology Group for the treatment of herpes-induced Acute Retinal Necrosis. However, their aim is to treat many viral conditions to include HSV-1/2. I was wondering if anyone had any insight into this company or method.
  16. The purpose of a therapeutic vaccine like Theravax is to present the immune system with a clear picture of the virus so it can produce antibodies against it. This is the same principle behind all therapeutic live or subunit vaccines. The Vitaherpavac Russian vaccine is a dry inactivated HSV culture that is also supposed to work the same way. The theory behind why the VZV / Chickenpox / Shingles vaccine works for herpes, is because HSV1, HSV2 and VZV (Chickenpox) share many structural proteins. I have also read studies that theorize people who have HSV1 are less likely to get HSV2, presumab
  17. Hey friends, I've been looking through the forum and can't seem to find an answer to my question so I'll just post it here: At what point does the "wait a few days" period start after an outbreak? I get OBs twice a year, and every time I do it seems to take forever to go away. The bumps are gone, and have fully healed over - but there is still some markings where they were and the markings can sometimes take two weeks to fully go away. They're like patches of slightly darker red skin where the OB happened. Is this still technically part of a risk period? Or does that risk period start a
  18. So I found an article date Sept 1st 2017, about the epigenetic approach to curing/treating herpes. This approach is the most interesting to me as it would truly eradicate the disease by activating the dormant virus and then attacking it with antivirals. I know some have speculated it may cause nerve or tissue damage to reactivate all of the virus. But I don't think it's been explored enough to know. And I though this research was abandoned in favor of crispr. While crispr sounds good in theory, it has had very little success reaching the dormant virus. I think springing the virus a

    Exposure therapy

    Hi everyone I had an appointment with a holistic doctor today and she mentioned hsv exposure therapy, where dead hsv cells are taken (under the tongue) in order to help your immune system recognize the virus. Has anyone heard of this or better yet tried it? She said it wasn't the right course of action for me, yet, I was just diagnosed and have only had one very minor OB, so hopefully I can control my outbreaks with more traditional methods, but I like to look a head and have a plan if my condition ends up being intrusive on my life. Thoughts? Expirences?
  20. Hi ALL, Please excuse the long absence. As you can imagine it has been incredibly difficult to deal with the passing our our founder and my very close friend Dr William Halford. Before his death he tasked me with carrying on his vision. We have been working diligently to make that a reality. I am happy to be back and share with you the progress and answer your questions.
  21. A friend of mine suggested I try glutathione cream, because of its immune boosting health benefits. After a full weekend of sun and drinking, I felt the early signs of an OB. I had pain along my outer thigh (my usual OB site) and sacral area, the pain includes shooting electric pain and burning. I applied the cream all along my outer thigh, and the back of my thigh, as well as my sacral area (where the dermatomes are located, as well as the nerve root). I applied the cream three times that day, and the next morning the pain and sensations were gone! I kept applying the cream 3x day for th
  22. Below is a link to a good article with a wealth on everything Genital HSV-2 (some Genital HSV-1). If you're giving advice on this site, definitely a good read. Topics: Epidemiology (manifestations/symptoms), Diagnostics, Treatment, Genital HSV Shedding, Genital HSV-2 Infection & HIV Infection Connection, HSV-2 Vaccines, and Molecular Epidemiology https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4771215/ Conclusion section from article Genital HSV remains a highly prevalent infectious agent with a significant impact on sexual health and risk of HIV infection.

  24. Hey guys! I would appreciate it if you can help me out with something I'm confused- I have done my own research and have read that taking Valtrex can significantly reduce transmission rates, nearly cutting them in half (it should be noted though that this varies amongst couples based on sex, condom use and other variables)1. Today, I went to my Gyno to discuss treatment options. She wanted to treat me with Valtrex only as symptoms arose (which seems silly to me, seeing as how taking Valtrex long-term according to what I have read, has no negative affects, also who wouldn't want to reduce t
