My personal cure

Recommended Posts

Just a Visitor

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

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.

      Meds and condoms is really all you need. Statistically, HSV2 is so widespread because 80-90% of  people who have it are unaware that they have it, and so they don't take all recommended precautions (including using condoms). Oddly enough, if you were to replace your HSV2+ girlfriend (aware of HSV status, using condoms, using suppressive meds) with the average American woman (unaware of HSV status, but 25% risk, which is average - and using condoms at all times, since presumably you could insist on it), you would actually NOT reduce your risk of HSV2. The statistical risk would be approximately the same for both theoretical girlfriends (about 0.7% per year assuming sex 2x per week). That is a bit simplistic, because maybe you could decide to date only women who are verified virgins (essentially no risk), or maybe "below average risk" in some way (younger than average, fewer prior partners than average, etc.), or you could have all prospective girlfriends IgG blood tested for HSV as a condition to dating them (or having sex with them), which would reduce the risk significantly (especially if you confirmed the paperwork), but not completely (since antibodies take some time to develop). At some point, beyond-standard precautions become inconvenient and not worth the hassle (or risk of being perceived as paranoid). The risk isn't zero, and probably would never be zero, short of taking extreme measures. Efforts to reduce risk beyond standard practices, which already reduce risk to relatively low levels, are naturally subject to the law of diminishing returns. Accepting some level of risk is (unfortunately) part of the deal in most reasonable endeavors. Also, there is statistically a greater likelihood of two people passing HPV between them one way or the other, than HSV2 (assuming all recommended precautions are being taken). Of course, you could get the HPV vaccine (everyone should!). But the vaccine only covers 10-15% of the types of HPV that are out there. And tests for HPV are imperfect, and generally not available for males. And HPV (some types) can cause cancer (cervical, penile, and throat - maybe others). So, keep that in mind as well. And then, of course, there are all the other risks . . . Best not to be paranoid though . . .

      That’s correct. HIV is a distinct virus. No virus morphs into another one.

      Hey @thebrightsidegirl I hope you’re going ok, I’ve read your posts and will see if I can draw some threads. I see that you have genital HSV-1 and your partner has oral HSV-1. I’m not sure if he has tested but given it’s somcommon there’s no reason to disbelieve that’s what he has. This is the best concirdant scenario you can hope for in a sexual relationship. You both already have the virus and your immune systems are established and your experience with herpes is your own. You cannot induce an outbreak in each other by virtue your own HSV-1 and transmission to a new location on your partner is too small to worry about. If HSV-2 is present, then it needs to be brought to the relationship. It’s not at all likely you have it given you were infected genitally with HSV-1.  I suggest these symptoms are very unlikely to be related to herpes at all. If they are, then it’s far more likely to be a recurrent outbreak issue with your HSV-1 as opposed to an initial infection with HSV-2.

      Ozone is basically toxic to humans at high levels. Its probably as likely to kill your cells as the virus. Add to that the virus is not in the blood and I'd say this 'treatment' is probably totally ineffective and if it does include high levels of real ozone likely dangerous. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_therapy
