Confusaed

I have been a Christian all my life I grew up going to church and became rooted in faith when I was a freshmen in high school. I am 20 now and have had HSV2 for about eight months. Due to other events I stopped going to church almost a year ago, but I never fell away, I still pray and ask God to guide me, but I've just been thinking. This seems a little extreme but now I feel like...well I'm unclean and wont be able to get to Heaven. :/ I know God loves us all but I guess I fell away hard for a little bit and now all these thoughts are circling through me head :(

I one hundred percent believe God would never ever seclude you from Heaven because of a virus. His eyes see the beauty and purity in us no matter what kind of mistakes we've made or what kind of viruses we acquire...He loves us! He loves YOU! :)

I agree with keepswimming, God ponders the heart, not the body. The Bible is very clear that there is forgiveness for ALL sins through Jesus Christ. However I do personally believe that to earn that forgiveness we should always be doing our best to better live up to Jesus' teaching and not continue to carelessly repeat the same sins as in our past. We've all made mistakes, some costlier than others, but it's never too late to gain God's forgiveness and love!

HI punkrockkid...If you are a Christian, you know the path to Heaven is through Jesus Christ...and you know that you when excetped him as your Savior when you confess your sins they are forgiven, and FORGOTTEN! :)

It is normal to feel "un-clean" when you contract this virus..but with time that will get better! This silly little virus is not going to keep you out of Heaven!!

I believe I got herpes because my lifestyle was not the best. There are consequences to sin. I went along with the lie it was okay to sleep with men if they were your boyfriend even though not married. I an a Catholic Christian and know better. Now after herpes, dating and sex are low my list and serving God is #1. God ABSOLUTELY forgives and forgets and He does help u love w the consequences.

      I think you're right about 'having a good flow', i.e. splitting the dosage throughout the day to make most use of it. You're also right about potential strain on your body for overdoses, however there is conflicting information about this based on studies I've read. There are several of studies indicating benefits of high doses of vitamin C for fighting viral diseases. I've done quite a bit of research on this as in the past I used to suffer from common colds, often over one week in duration and up to 6 times a year. With Zinc and Vitamin C I've managed to reduce these to once a year, and their duration to under 6 days. Some of the studies used IV administration of Vitamin C, which is of course different to taking it orally, but some of them had success with high oral doses as well:  Dr. Harri Hemilä from the University of Helsinki, Finland, analyzed the findings of two randomized trials each of which investigated the effects of two vitamin C doses on the duration of the common cold. The first trial administered 3 g/day vitamin C to two study groups, 6 g/day to a third group, and the fourth group was administered a placebo. Compared with the placebo group the 6 g/day dose shortened colds by 17%, twice as much as the 3 g/day doses did. The second trial administered 4 g/day and 8 g/day vitamin C, and placebo to different groups, but only on the first day of the cold. Compared with the placebo group, the 8 g/day dose shortened colds by 19%, twice as much as the 4 g/day dose did. https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/4/339/htm High dose IV Vitamin C has been shown to be effective against viral infections such as the common cold rhinovirus (Hemila and Herman,1995); avian virus H1N1 (Ely,2007;) Chikungunya (Gonzalez et al. 2014; Marcial-Vega et al,2015); Zika (Gonzalez et al 2016) and influenza (Zarubaeva et al.2017). Also oral supplementation with vitamin C (doses over 3g) appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections (Carr and Maggini, 2017). https://isom.ca/article/high-dose-vitamin-c-influenza-case-report/ We had a case in which a patient with herpes zoster did not respond to conventional therapy so we attempted to administer intravenous infusion of vitamin C which resulted in an immediate reduction in the pain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3111558/

      Hey @Antoinette63 you do absolutely nothing. If infected with HSV-2, then the initial outbreak would have occurred within days of the infections. Symptoms after 4 months are not really likely to have been from that episode.  If she does have a recent infection of herpes, then it will be from her new boyfriend!

      Hang on @viralfrog let’s be rational here. The male body can only usefully metabolise 100mg of vitamin C a day. Any excess does not have any known impact on the body as it doesn’t actually get to where you might be thinking it goes. It goes out via your kidneys, potentially causing toxic effects. The real trick with vitamin C is making sure there is a good flow moving through your intestines such that your body can metabolise the full 100mg easily. To achieve this, you are much better off taking a tablet of about 250mg with each meal. Anything more than 2g a day of vitamin C is not only useless but commences a strain process on your body that may include outcomes including kidney stones.

      Hang on, no one is talking about testing again for herpes. We are suggesting an analysis of the serum in the blisters that will give clues as to the cause.

      Currently I'm taking my Ascorbic acid at two doses throughout the day, 6g at lunch and 6g at dinner. It's already a hassle as I have to dilute it in water, rinse my mouth with coconut oil and then I take a shot of it from a shot glass and rinse my mouth quickly with water after. Even with the coconut oil, I'm worried for my teeth.  I was going to order a capsule filler machine and some gelatin capsules, but realised it will cost me almost the same than just ordering 1g vitamin tablets from iHerb. Also, this means I still have to be eating 12 capsules per day which is not ideal. I wonder if I could figure out some DIY method to be able to squeeze 3-5g of the Ascorbic acid into some coating to be able to swallow it without risking my teeth.  I had a look at liposomal C too, but what put me off was the quick expiration date if making it yourself. Unless I'm wrong, you have to do a new batch like twice a week.
