That has never been demonstrated except self reporting. That's simply what people need to know. Still it is good that you have backed off that herpes causes nerve damage as a justification for taking SJW.
People also need to be aware that the FDA has not approved SJW as a potential treatment for anything. This is just a fact for people to consider.
In fact the medical authorities actively promote the following:
St. John’s wort is known to affect how the body uses and breaks down a number of drugs and can cause serious side effects.
Serotonin is a brain chemical targeted by antidepressants. Combining St. John’s wort and certain antidepressants can lead to a potentially life-threatening increase in serotonin levels—a condition called serotonin syndrome. Symptoms range from tremor and diarrhea to very dangerous confusion, muscle stiffness, drop in body temperature, and even death.
Psychosis is a rare but possible side effect of taking St. John’s wort, particularly in people who have or are at risk for mental health disorders, including bipolar disorder.
Taking St. John’s wort can weaken many prescription medicines, such as:
Birth control pills
Cyclosporine, which prevents the body from rejecting transplanted organs
Digoxin, a heart medication
Some HIV drugs including indinavir
Some cancer medications including irinotecan Acyclovir, a medication for herpes
Warfarin and similar medications used to thin the blood.
All important information for our readers.
So does anyone know if herpes is in integrated into the host's cells genome or if there are just virus particles in the nerve ganglia and some of them stay there so that it never is completely eliminated. This hasn't completely been figured out yet? That's scary. I guess the whole latency thing needs to be figured out more. Maybe they will know what's going on better with CRISPR?
Has anyone actually tried sprironactolone for any lenghth of time or anything? I was going to try to get it at the dermatologist. I was just wondering bc I feel like it might be possible to get a prescription for it.
Washington, DC.. I see a few doctors on Wednesday. I am going to see if I can do a western blot with my doctor. I need to know why my IGG are negative and what does it mean if I am not developing antibodies.
