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,

      I hooked up with my ex after being apart a short time (during this time , as any other with him, he slept with other people). About a week later I notice what looked like a small scrape and I figured I had cut myself shaving. I was slightly suspicious because I didn't remember feeling any pain when I shaved. but over the next few days it got larger and I noticed other small spots becoming red. I figured maybe it was getting infected but deep down my stomach was turning and I was afraid that I had really messed up this time. then I noticed a large bump on my side, the same side where the sore is (after research I realized this my lymph node is very swollen). This morning I went and got a visual diagnosis from a nurse practitioner at an STD clinic. She said although there is a small chance it could be something else, she believes is it herpes (I already knew but desperately hoped I was wrong). She got me a prescription for the acyclovir and sent me on my way. I had the conversation with my ex immediately after. He did get sad, but he didn't seem surprised. I can't help but wonder if he had his own suspicions. Anyway, I encouraged him to go get checked out and explained what was explained to me. He didn't say much. I'm so lost, it doesn't feel real. I keep hoping I'm one of those that will never have an outbreak again. How will I talk to people about this when I start to date? How will I be careful not to spread it if condoms don't protect a person 100%? How can I make sure I don't spread this to other parts of my body? Is there any way to reduce the chance of another outbreak? I wish there was a way to make this go away. I feel so gross and alone. I Know I will learn to cope but I am disappointed in myself for having unprotected sex (or sex at all) with someone who I KNOW is not only extremely  promiscuous but also is never careful in the least bit.

      Can u go on birth control pills?

      WilsoninAus , Nice job at Stigmatizing the young lady by putting her in the "unlucky" class of those who have many outbreaks AFTER the initial OB with many issues and will constantly have to be reminded of her STD.  Nice job at comforting her! Stigmata 2;  You were  infected by someone who technically doesn't have an STD !!!!! therefore its not his fault?? Because the narrative in the public domain is cold sores are not an ST fuckin D. Completely , chiefly and predominantly Ignorant.  Advice to all WOMEN : Dudes want to have sex ...males are  GDF'in ANIMALS! !!. I will crawl through miles of shit, swim the oceans, eat cockroaches, flies, dead rotting fish and thorny cactus to maintain my vigor just for a chance.??..to have sex with you. Herpes will not stop me!!. Not to mention WOW !! you won the Fucking Herpes Lottery ? Who says this? WTF is wrong with YOU ? Who should pay your doctor bills.?? All the morons who say cold sores are not an ST Fucking D. P LLLLEASE.

      Hey @Hester! I thought I was going to need to take daily suppressive therapy, but it seems I've been able to manage it fairly well by just taking the antivirals when I feel the predome symptoms - I feel mine are fairly obvious and probably typical as I can feel tingling in my leg and an itch. I think everyone is different so it's probably best to speak with your doctor and see how your body reacts to the virus as in my experience and what I've read it seems to be a case by case situation. My doctor did not prescribe me on daily antivirals but instead advised me to get in tune with my body and to look out for signs of an outbreak, to get to know the predome symptoms - I keep the antivirals on me at all times as I seem to have a short window of time to take them before it becomes an outbreak

      Good way to put it! Well, I brought the question up to a friend (and the only friend who I've told IRL) who has had herpes for 3+ years and still has a wonderful dating life as if nothing happened (none of the girls he dates care either. Maybe he just knows how to pick them?!). His response? "That is the most ridiculous question! Your chances of getting hit by lightning are more than that." I'm just curious to know if it can spread like that because our bodies already have the antibodies... Still learning about this. He says he has HSV-1 though on his genitals. He's gotten oral sex and made out with his girlfriends for 3+ years and it hasn't been an issue for him. But, that's HSV-1... not sure what HSV-2 is like. Supposedly HSV-1 doesn't do well in the genital area and HSV-2 doesn't do well in the oral area.

      I would like to know if I have a new HSV2 infection or not, and I attempted to communicate that to the doctor.  She didn't seem like she believed that I would have any knowledge of what I was in there for.  I realize the margin of error, and the doctor was trying to dissuade me because of the confusion the results could cause.  I think that given the information I have absorbed here, I am not that confused about what the test results could imply. 
    • VVK
      The blood test - if it's IgG - would only show you if you have a new or historic infection by HSV-2.. and even then with a relatively large error margin for false negatives. It's a matter of explaining to your doctor what you want to find out from your testing.
    • VVK
      I'm going to propose approaching your questions from a different perspective: What do the chances need to be in order for you to take the risk or not to take the risk in each scenario?

      very solid points  i feel the sams way to be honest  but we can't drop everything and start from scratch to cure hsv the cost of lost opportunity will be too high just take u for a great example, you are smart and have done a lot but a lot of your time might be wasted if you decided to chase curing hsv newton wasted a lot of time after he decided to become an alchemist    i think the best thing we can do is support it financially via investment, donation or start our own bitotech company to cure it  
    • Jeremy Spokein
      If I'm on suppressive therapy and NOT having an outbreak (gHSV2), and a girl performs oral sex on me and then we make out, could she pass the virus on to my mouth? From this post below, I see that the chances are less than 1% without suppressive therapy for HER to get the virus, but wondering what the chances are to move from one part of the body to another in both circumstances: oral sex without suppressive and oral sex with suppressive therapy. Thanks
