No more outbreaks for me since started taking these.

Well I wanted to wait longer before reporting, but I cant belive that my canker sores (HSV1 confirmed) in my mouth have stopped, and no new ones appered for the past three weeks since I started taking bitter apricot kernels. I had the sores non stop for the previous three months, and I started taking these kernels as preventive for cancer, and I was wowed when the sore dissaperaed and did not come back.

Could it be that these kernels help fight with our immune system against the stelthy herpes virus? I will report as time goes on.

And yes, I have been through all the lysene, Acyclovir, valtrex, garlic pills, vitamins, etc and at best they slightly suppress the virus but still kept appearing, including the big head aches.

I take about 3 kernels every few hours to aout 18 a day. I ordered my kernels from apricotpower.com where it costs $20 for a pound of about 700 seeds, and no I don't work for them, this is my personal story and experience.

How about the taste of apricot kernals... lol... they are absolutely terrible! I had a handful yesterday. Also I think they contain trace amounts of cyanide? So possibly a good idea to only eat in small quantities and not often. To my knowledge they do have a rare vitamin in them that supposedly has powerful health benefits (especially in terms of chelation).

Yes they have a bitter taste, but i just crunch them and eat them by themselves or in a smoothy. I did do extensive esearch on them and they do contain a locked cyanide compound, that's what tastes bitter, and that's what works in the body to kill off cancer and nasties, but not normal cells. Time will tell if they are hostile towards the herpes virus, I hope so. That cyanide is also known as B17, amygdalin, laetrile, but if you eat the kernels that are not bitter, they wont do anything, because they dont have the beneficial substance.

What facinated me was the Hunza tribe from the Himalaya's, live on these, and they have been known to live disease free and livespans of 125 yars. The bible states God Gave man everything he needs on the earth, including seeds and fruits. This could be the miracle that is there for us.

Also I think just having a handful every now and then may not do much, but one that is just starting, take one or two every few hours during the day, and increase it over the week to 3 or 4 every few hours, and see if it helps. I was wondering if anyone else took these who had HSV and if it works for them?

Also over the course of last 10 years of taking acyclovir, lysene and valtrex I had to keep increasing the doses to keep the outbreaks within check, until I was taking three 1000mg of valtrex per day when I had the breakouts, I still had them but they werent so painful (headaches) with the doses, its like the virus adapted and could tolerate the meds. When my insurance changed and did not pay for the valtrex ($500 for 1000mg pills) I stopped taking them and searched for something better.

After three weeks and two days I got a canker sore on my front top gums (gingiva) and the headaches, I had to take a 1000mg of lysene to get rid of the headache, so now I have to re-evaluate what is going on, it seems the apricot seeds by themselves do not prevent the ourbreaks, I'll have to evaluate the dosages and mixtures of lysene and othe immune strengthining substances.

Romo, I feel your pain somewhat. I switched companies and insurance isn't covering me for an extra 3 months. Perscriptions are quite pricey! Had to switch to save $ but they aren't working as well.

Really going to try and focus on my Ph level, going to add more lemon to my diet...and unfortunatly less jack & coke :( I've been eating really well over the past several months, but just can't seem to avoid the tingly, annoying feeling. Even if I'm not having a full blown breakout, I'm afraid of what would happen if I quit the meds.

ahhh...a life without daily H meds... i look forward to that day.

Update: I am still taking the apricot kernels, and I do notice a difference in that the canker sores are not appearing continuously. After the one outbreak a week ago, it healed in a few days and now none, where I kept getting them nonstop. All I am taking now is the apricot kernels (16 a day, 4 at a time spread over the day) 1000mg lysene and vitamins.

I have observed that if taking any drugs: Valacyclovir, famvir, etc longterm, the HSV1 gets stronger and you need to keep increasing the dosages, an HSV still appears.

The best way I found is strengthening your immune system, so it can battle the stealthy HSV virus when it shows up, keeping the lysene-arginine level higher in lysense, because HSV thrives in high Arginine, and keeping the body pH Alkaline, because the viruses and nasties thrive in acidic pH level, (for example when you drink a coke, it brings your pH so low, you need to drink 20 glasses of water to bring it back neutral at 7pH)

Here is some info I found that explains how HSV works: The HSV virus particle will enter a nerve cell at the surface and force it to create new virus. It will then explode the cell to release the cloned virus thus creating a huge open wound.

One of the main ingredients the cell must have to create new herpes virus is arginine. Your cells have special receptors that they use to store arginine.

Lysine and arginine compete for the same storage space. The cell cannot create new virus using lysine.

When you consume high levels of lysine, the lysine will take the place of some of the arginine. This creates a situation where the cell cannot support the production of new herpes virus because of low arginine levels.

In the past I have tried just Lysene at high levels of 7000MG/day and it suppresed the HSV but not 100%, so lysene by itself is not the answer for 100% suppresion. If we could only find which mixture of what ingredients that our immune system could control and keep the HSV virus in hiding for ever..... if not eliminated.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.

      It was properly typed. Definitely HSV-2. No, he doesn’t get oral cold sores. So should I expect this to be another OB coming? I’ve never had an outbreak in my life and have been with my husband for 8 years with no problem! So I hope this isn’t going to keep occurring  
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey @ayekayelle I am afraid to say this is pretty typical of the first few months, a fairly high chance of rolling outbreaks. Maybe the suppressive therapy will be of assistance for a while at least. By the way just to add, was you culture properly typed? Or just assumed to be HSV-2 given location? Its 50/50 seemingly as to whether cultures are typed. Does your husband get oral cold sores?

      I just had my first OB during the first week of April, and was diagnosed with HSV2 on April 12th. I just finished my 10 day cycle of acyclovir yesterday. Today I've been feeling uncomfortable. No burning or pins and needles feelings, just more so uncomfortable and not right down there. Is it possible to be getting another OB this soon, or am I just being paranoid? I'm starting suppressive therapy as soon as I receive my medication. Blah...

      Doesn't sound like HSV. You can get tested in 12 wks to be sure. Get rest
