Red Marine Algae and Lysine? please advise me!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i'm a new member here. 3 months ago i was diagnosed having HSV-2/genital ..i'm still trying to find what's the best natural remedies to prevent my breakout. So far I had only 2 breakouts since my initial infection. but i've been taking valtrex eveytime i feel something wrong down there.. But my doc told me, taking valtrex too often is not good, and can harm my body.He told me to take care my health and built my immune.

so, i would like to ask some supplements below that i have taken for about 2 months...maybe some of you can help me to choose and your critics and advice will be very helpful.

Below are what i've been taking everyday:

1) early morning, 1 hour before breakfast: 1 tablet of lysine (1000mg), the brand is GNC.

2) after breakfast: 4 capsules of red marine algae - @500 mg each. (i recently bought 2 brands: Pure Planet and GigartinaOne).

Please somebody tell me about these brands, are they safe? because i live in Indonesia, and i need to buy it from Amazon and have them shipped to my address, since there's no drugstore which sell it. I've been looking in Singapore and Malaysia too, neither of them also have these remedies.

Especially the GigartinaOne, i can't find the manufacturer and distributor. Maybe i can give the link from amazon and other site below, so you can check it out:

3) after lunch: take vitamin C 1000mg ( the brand is: Ester-C from GNC)

4) after dinner: Vitamin B complex.

Please anyone advise me about this...is this ok if i take it for a long time? because until now, i still often feel a minor "tingling" or" itch" around my genital almost everyday...which is a sign that i'm about to have another OB..it really sucks.

My O&G doctor prescribed me zovirax cream to use it 2X daily until the sign is gone. But i'm looking for a real natural and cheaper supplements , because valtrex and zovirax is really expensive here...i've been spending 50% of my salary just for buying this medicine .it's crazy

Hii there, I am from Indonesia too. I have similar experience but only take L-lysine and vit C both at 1000grm everyday. At times, i still feel the itch but a really minor one.

According to various forums, L-lysine if taken at high dosage (6000grm per day) will harm the liver. Though not scientifically proven. Still you need to consider the fact that any medication taken not according to their appropriate dosage is not recommended.

I don't know how much GNC l-lysine cost but you can try kal from natura farm, it might be cheaper.

On another subject, you will probably have known that i sent you a private message. If you feel that i am intruding, please do tell me and i will not bother you again. The reason i really want to get to know you is that since you are married, how does herpes affect your life, your decision and your partner. I am still single and really want your input on married life.

This is my email: terbangmobil@gmail.com or nick, djhon car. I hope to hear from you.

I do hear good things about red marine algae. I have also heard of many taking Vit.C in very high doses. I personally take Vit.B cpmplex liquid twice a day & lysine 625mgs a day. That along with my antivirals so far have kept me with only two outbreaks ever. I just started the Lysine so I will keep taking for at least a year to see if it makes a difference when I get my next blood test done. Thats for the tips and the links. Truly, Ace

      No I didn't ever have hsv 1 before (was tested in spring). This was a recent exposure. The ex had an outbreak on his genitalia so I got tested. No symptoms but positive for hsv 1 now so how do I know if it's cold sores or gHSV1 
    • hopeing
      If you've never had any symptom I expect you prob have HSV1 from childhood and not genitally.

      I have hsv1, i got off of birth control about  9 months ago, so i dont think this can still be hormonal acne. Why is this happening too meee. Its just getting worse overtime and ive had this happening for a good 3 weeks now just getting worse and worse. They are mostly on my cheek area, but i will get occasional single pimples around hairline or forehead . This is the worst its been! Anyone else have had this issue ? Its gross

      yeah, I got HSV from him and HPV . I'm pretty sure the HPV is from him too but no way to be 100%. I have never tested positive for that before though. The coincidence is too much.   How to trust somebody?? I really don't need any more gifts.

      Since he has given your H then I advise you to make sure that  he's not giving New gift this time  ( another lovely virus) otherwise have sex as you like but not with ob's. I say that because it happened with so many people and I don't want to mane any. Thanks

      I'm so confused! My IgM was positive yesterday and today I found out the IgG test came back that I am negative for HSV2 but showed evidence of IgG for HSV 1 (she said I needed to retest in 3 months).  I've never had ANY symptoms ever. So do I tell people I have genital herpes or do I tell them I just have cold sores virus?  I have no way of know if I have it on my mouth or below! What do I do???
