Red Marine Algae and Lysine? please advise me!

3 posts in this topic

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

      @_Garden_girl You got to do what you need to do! It does sound like he knew he had it and took no precautions at all to protect you and that's very very fucked up! You have every right to be mad as hell..If he knew that he had it then it really is nothing short of sexual abuse to lie and not wear a condom. In my opinion, what he did is worse than stealthing as you did not consent to the risk of hsv (again, if he knew he had it). You do sound very level-headed and I would certainly encourage you to be composed. As you said, confronting him isn't going to change your diagnosis, but it may prevent it from happening to someone else...and more importantly, people who do bad things need to be held accountable and he should know what he did was wrong.  I rambled a bit...but say what you need to in order to move-on.  I'm sorry you're in this situation. You'll be fine

      Yeah, we're about to kill ourselves as our physical and emotional pain torture us every day while solution could be close... It's all about money after all and our governments don't care. Frustrating! http://aurx.com/2016/10/05/hello-world/

      The igG used to be very suspect and still seems to get it wrong many times. Certainly the survey parts are almost completely unreliable. Never said 1% prevalence...I'm not going to guess.. My point on this thread is only that it's silly to think that prevalence can be so high (on this thread some suggest everyone has genital hsv) and yet transmission so low (it's suggested transmission can be as low as 1% a year above).  They don't want to misestimate. Welcome to humanity where much is uncertain and many errors are made! We all can.

      My quality of life has been demolished. We now have to bear through the rest of our life with no prospect of escaping it. Every morning the first thing I think about is HSV, as I feel burning aching pain. It robs you of laughter, love, motivation,and any hope for a better future to work towards. Everything I do now, I'm teased of what I could have enjoyed if I didn't have this.

      Extremely unlikely that he would become infected from the activity you describe. Essentially zero chance.

      Makes no sense. The studies are as the studies do. What flawed test are you talking about? What point are you making. The statistics are reliable and interpretable. If you want to believe that only 1% of people have HSV or whatever it is you're trying to say, fine, say it and move on. Why on god's earth would anyone want to misestimate the prevalence of any disease? Schoolboy ignoramus stuff mate - you can do better.
