I think they are related. I have a weird case, i cant get a positive blood test but i had a positive swab, so pretty for sure im positive Wilson Aus, so dont even go there! Ive had three tests so far. Shortly after being diagnosed i was diagnosed as hypothyroid. My thyroid is attacking itself. I really think its related to my hsv. I dont make antibodies to hsv, but my antibodies are going crazy on my thyroid instead! Great!
I am a year since diagnosis and the virus is a nuisance at its worst for me, other that the stigma that is, but i firmly believe my thyroid autoimmune disease is related to hsv.
Hi I too diagnosed in March just not certain if I have 1 or 2 on genitals. What do you have? How were you diagnosed? Tell me how you found out.
I told my 3 sisters about this and 1 good friend, it was important for me usually I dont tell anyone things I am ashamed of, trust me not telling others but its good to have someone to talk to this about, a friend, family member, therapist, people on this website. have you gone on the caht room? this helps me a lot even when I jsut sit in the back and dont say much.
I felt in the beginning to end it all, sitma hit me hard, never felt like that before, I thought I was smarter than this. Another man reached out to me just as I was infected. I thought I would not respond to him. But I did he was going out of town for week and wanted to call me when he got back. Well he came back and we hit it off, I avoided too much kissing and touching, he thought I just liked going to dinner. I told him at 6 weeks, he was totally accepting i told him we could both learn about this together, he doesnt want this H but he wants me! We are still together and we are both in love with each other, we a bit older and realize this is it!!!. Yes it can happen. Trust me I have heard other stories. KEEP SHARING HERE!!!
They say once you lose hope, you lose it all. Many days I ask myself what the point in going on is. I have been diagnosed since March and I have not met anyone who understands me or anything. I feel lost, confused, I have so many questions and I don't know who to ask. It hurts. I feel I will never find love and I will never have kids of my own. All these things in my mind 24/7. How do I know when it's the right time to tell someone? How do I know if i should even talk to anyone. Help?
basic tenet when dealing with pain in traditional medicine is that "When there is pain there's is stagnation, and where there's stagnation there's pain."
So herbs that help move stagnation are appropriate. SJW does more stagnation in it's own special way. Garlic, thins and warms the blood to help it move more easily.
Olive leaf is like herbal antibiotics. And is 'energetically cold'. bacteria is a hot pathogen. Rx antibiotics are extremely cold in nature from the whole TCM standpoint.
Colostrum is like a from-the-source/momma food grade ginseng. It has these growth factors and prohormone compounds, immune building blocks etc.... so it's fuel and the fuel catalysts to heal/promote healing and support supplement the immune system... generally speaking...
Oil of Oregano. People swear by it but idk. I find noticeable benefit by taking 400mg of lysine every day. I have a Lysine-monolaurin (200mg:200mg) supplement called Laurisine. I like it and it's food grade. But for pain in the pelvic, nether region I'd try the japanese knotweed(resveratrol...).
Genocea is using an adjuvant matrix which stimulates both Th1 as well as Th2 cytokines. Th1 helps while Th2 makes the disease worse so I'm not surprised their results were marginal. Further their claimed ATLAS, antigen discovery platform messed up. IMHO they should have dropped glycoprotein D (around half of symptomatic people already have Ab's to that already) and added 3 more ICP's (that keep people asymptomatic - they picked one of the top 4, not the top 4) that would have made the vaccine near perfect for 100% of the population.... oh well.
Efficacy – A drug (especially vaccination) has to be working at 75% or greater efficacy to go to market. If lower, it goes back to the drawing board. This is done on people with a small testing pool (Say 150) to test the dosage.
While that link and quote says 75%, it's not far off. The end point for FDA is to lower transmission; meaning to eliminate shedding or greatly reduce it. Nucleoside analogues drugs (Valtrex, famciclovir, etc.) are already around 50% efficacy in reducing transmission by nearly eliminating shedding. FDA for drug approval will want to see a substantial statistical improvement before approving it, thus saying they need 75% is kind of accurate. Note because there are already pills for HSV the FDA will not fast track approval of any HSV medicine (ugh).
