Lysine & Arginine Balance?

5 posts in this topic

I heard an imbalance in these two is what causes outbreaks, recently ive started making smoothies with raw cacao powder, which has arginine in it & today it may have caused me a mini outbreak of coldsores (a cluster of 4 very small ones)

I also snack on nuts & seed throughout the day, i consider this all very healthy yet today coldsores have popped up

Seeing as i have not had one for over a year & ive only just started using the cacao powder, it seems thats whats causing it.

Its actually really healthy stuff but maybe i just dont have enough lysine in my diet?

If i counter this with more lysine will this be okay?

Like if i put spirulina & seaweed in the smoothie aswell?

I also eat fish & chicken...

I really want to keep making the smoothies with the cacao powder & eating nuts...maybe today i just used too much, as it is very potent stuff

Thanks in advance for any help

i only get coldsores on average once a year so i think that a balanced diet will be okay, the nuts & seeds i currently eat have never triggered anything before

at the time i was also eating pumkin seed oil on salad which i think actually triggered it

I was pretty stoked to discover the apple/peanut butter snack (yummy and healthy? I'm down) but I'm starting to think it's what causing my current ob. This is only my second ob since the initial one (the first was caused by stress) and it's bugging the living shit out of me that I'm going to have to abandon my new favorite snack. I'm glad I'm not the only one whose diet is suffering because of this bastardly little virus.

Just to let you all know my outbreak went fast because i put aloe vera on it all day everyday, i also started eating lots of legumes (high in lysine) & also started having huge salads with spinach & watercress (high in lysine), i also found chicken breast helps too, i also make smoothies with the spinach, watercress & some spirulina. I think the spirulina really helped its amazing stuff.

But the aloe vera i felt really help this from becoming blistered, ive never had a coldsore before without it becoming painful & blistered, im 100% sure the aloe vera helped

so the point is USE ALOE VERA!

      Is there a reason that you're still staying with him? Also how do you know it's HSV-1? Were you diagnosed through swab/blood test? And how were you tested when you got your HSV negative status prior to all of this? One of my ex-gf's used to get BV - I found a way to fix that by making sure that we were both showered/bathed prior to to having sex and her afterwards. However, if it's the semen that's causing your issues then just don't let him ejaculate inside of you. He should at least be sensitive enough to understand that BV is no fun and if he's the problem, he needs to deal with it.

      They cannot take a swab unless a sore is present. Sarah, please go and take an IGG blood test if you want further confirmation

      He may have hsv1 oral or genital so thats how you received it

      In order to move forward you need to manage symptoms.  Are you on anti virals.  This anger eycay contribute to your symptoms.  Stress is not good for herpes.  Did you get tested for hsv as its not standard in your initial test.  What exactly do you have and what does he have.  You say your negative for 1 and but he has herpes.  Need to clarify.  
    • Lisajd
      Look you have hsv1 which provides some immunity. He had sex with prostitutes who you dont even know have hsv2 plus he used a condom.  I think you either go get tested or accept you are unlikely to have hsv2. No one here can diagnose you.

      Out of all the possible outcomes, this one is as good as it gets for being HSV positive. If you're not sticking around here, I hope you will provide us with an update a few months down the road to tell us how you're doing.

      So they can't swab without sore ? Yeh he said he doesn't but he never has been tested his been to about 10-15 prositutes I dunno if that puts him at higher risk was with Condom
    • cantdoit
      Absolutely they can.  To see if they can pick up virus. It's needs to be a PCR swab.

      He didn't have a cold sore, and I've never seen him with one. We just had vaginal intercourse when this happened to me. We have had oral sex before, but I never had a reaction like after sex. We also have a long distance relationship so we have sex every 3-6 months.  My OB/GYN swabbed my vagina when I went in for the bacteria infection. 
    • Lisajd
      They would do a blood test if its likely to be 3 months from infection.  Have you asked the ex if he has hsv2
