Recommended Posts

1960annie

hi ,today i bought my daughter that has been newly diagnosed some l-lysine,from our health shop,her first o/b is finally over and she has finished her antivirols,the l-lysine is 1000mg,so im wondering is any one out there that can tell me how many she should take of them per day being they are 1000mg,and at mo on a special of of £3.29 instead of £6.29,or should i just say not let her take anything,and see if she has another o/b,and see how things go,with a healthy diet,i hope she doesnt get another o/b as my sis never did,just gets a cold sore on her nose now and then,even though she was diagnossed with genital herpes,also on sale is olive leaf,rather expensive at £27,english currency,but im prepared to pay for that for her as i want to make her as comfy and happy as i can,and if stuff like olive leaf will deter an o/b,then so be it,paying for olive leaf,then again its in liquid form,and how much should she take of that per day,the sales assistants were helpfull,but were limited to what they knew,and wasnt sure how much to take as i told them it was for herpes,so i hope someone can give me a bit of advice,thanks to everyone that has been there for me and my daughter the last 2 weeks,woo wooo im of to see her tommorow for three days,she has perked up as i do belive she has taken her self off to 'THE TOWER OF LONDON' with a friend,so thanks again

Click on the link on the left "What is Lysine"

There you can find their recommendations on how much to take per day.

Personally when I am dating someone I take 1000mg a day along with 400mg acyclovir.

However you might want to see how her body adapts to the virus, some people are lucky in that they only get one outbreak and then never another. My body has adapted over they years and I now never get them. I take the drugs as a precaution while I am dating someone.

Also look into kelp extract. From what I have read, that too helps prevents outbreaks.

Good luck to your daughter, she has a tremendous Mommy.

acyclovir

p.s doctors in the u.k only allow you to have acyclovir,when you have an o/b or if you suffer withs o/b's six times a year, then they let you have it,so she wouldnt be able to take that with the l-lysine, unless she has an o/b.think maybe i might see how she goes without taking anything,to begin with,but will get it all in just incase to be on the safe side,i will tell her you take what you do when dating,as she is dating at the mo,and has informed the young man,who has been so suportive to her,and doesnt seem to be bothered,so that was nice and sensible of him,shame theres not more of him about in england,as people are very small minded and ignorant re herpes,

thanks again annie x

You're welcome.

I understand there is a herpes support meeting in London on the 26th. Don't know if she lives near there.

And have her come to the "Live Chat" room. There are many nice people there who could offer her additional support.

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.

      Do you have an APOE4 gene? I do. I also have HSV-2, which so far hasn't been linked to dementia. Itzhaki previously found that cold sores occur more frequently in those who carry a gene variant that confers increased risk of Alzheimer’s called APOE-ε4. "Our theory is that in APOE-ε4 carriers, reactivation is more frequent or more harmful in HSV1-infected brain cells, which as a result accumulate damage that culminates in development of Alzheimer's," she said.

      So basically, if you carry the APOE4 gene and have oral HSV-1, you chances of dementia could be quite high. But if you have APOE4, your chances of dementia were higher already. Look, 80% of the population has HSV-1. 80% of the population does not get dementia. You also seem to skip over the fact that antiviral treatment can reduce the increased chances of dementia to almost nothing. "The striking results include evidence that the risk of senile dementia is much greater in those who are infected with HSV, and that anti-herpes antiviral treatment causes a dramatic decrease in number of those subjects severely affected by HSV1 who later develop dementia," Itzhaki said. The data from Taiwan only applies to the rare severe HSV1 or VZV infections. The next step will be to study dementia rates amongst people with mild HSV1 infections, including herpes labialis or mild genital herpes. "Considering that over 150 publications strongly support an HSV1 role in Alzheimer's, these Taiwan findings greatly justify usage of antiherpes antivirals - which are safe and well-tolerated - to treat Alzheimer's disease,” Itzhaki said."They also incentivize development of an HSV1 vaccine, which would likely be the most effective treatment." I think it behooves you to do your research and actually read the articles you are posting before pulling the alarm and trying to scare people.
