Your body clearing the virus on it's own?

Recommended Posts

When I had my last pap smear, the gyno said that sometimes the body clears the herpes virus itself. It doesn't mean you are "cured", you still have herpes. But she said that for some people, when they are about to have an ob, the body clears it before it happens. She said this is something that sometimes happens for people who have had it for a number of years and it's the closest thing to an actual cure. Anyone ever heard this before? She was saying that it's just the antibodies doing their job and it's possible for people to just stop getting ob's. Any thoughts on this? Of course, it was nice to hear that but I'm just curious about what others might think of this.

Sure its not uncommon for people to become asymptomatic after a while. Some people even stop shedding at a detectable level. This is probably a combination of your immune system learning how to fight the virus and some latently infected cells dying.

Ok, I see the word "asymptomatic" a lot on here. Does that mean no symptoms at all anymore? No outbreaks or shedding?

Asymptomatic refers to no clinical symptoms (like visible lesions). Shedding is just the presence of the virus. It can occur in the absence of symptoms.

Absolutely possible

I know of someone who was treated over 15 years ago for H, and has never had an outbreak that she is aware of again. She is an avid runner, and sticks to an alkaline diet as much as possible. Anyways, gives hope!

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
