Are you inferring this from a study you've read?
You think an injection into the CSF, like an epidural (could even be caudal), would work? That way the treatment would be immersing the whole spinal cord-nervous system. Or do you suspect that the DRG is a layer that needs to be reached more directly?
Thanks you guys. What you said really helps. I just need to find a good way and time to tell him. I also just moved up to New Jersey about a month ago from the south, and I have no friends or family nearby to talk to or confide with. This guy is like the first potential friend and boyfriend I've been able to make, so it just makes me really afraid to lose him, and potentially a lot more people when I'm already so alone. Maybe this is just life's way of forcing me to find the strength within myself instead of trying to find it in other people.
I think it's important to keep it simple and to the point. I did share some facts though, didn't give too many though, as I didn't want to overwhelm or confuse him. But I don't think some people understand the low risk of transmission with proper precautions so I thought that was important to educate him about. I think things will go well for you, I will keep you in my thoughts.
You may be on to something with regard to temperature.. Temperature is also directly related to metabolism and energy. A big part of the reason I'm doing T3 and HC is to restore a lack of energy, metabolism, and temperature.. The T3 only and HC are intended to be temporary.. My body temperature first thing in the morning before the T3 and HC kick in is in the 96's.. After they kick in, it gets somewhat higher, but rarely to 98.6. For years, my average temperature was somewhere between 96.5 and 97.5.. Average caloric intake was less than 1200 (sometimes a lot less), for a 6 foot tall 200lb man. I could gain weight on 1200.. This, as I understand it, is/was due to the RT3 shutting down the T3 receptors in the cells, preventing the body from eating itself..
So, everything I've been doing has had the beneficial impact of increasing activity and temperature, and perhaps this increase in temperature has had a negative impact on the HSV.. Although my level of energy and temperature is still less than normal, and I've not heard this connection elsewhere.
I hadn't considered a chinese herbalist, and I'm not sure how I would go about that.. I'll look into it.
Thanks for the thoughts..
btw.. Nobody seems to be saying "Yeah, cut out the protein shakes!"
Ideally 10 people for a trial and yes I rounded up but $1 mill is not necessary. It all depends on money and effectiveness of the vector. I could save a lot and avoid a lot of vector problems if I can get a skilled surgeon (outside USA) to precisely navigate a needle with radiographic or ultrasound imaging to directly inject the DGR. Then I would need only a fraction of the amount as opposed to intradermal injection.... that has already been done in humans, but again cost.
In the end I don't have licenses to sell it commercially, only use it for research but it would be a monumental jump over the FDA if we just did it and proved the concept. A lot more people would come forward afterwards demanding it.
