Pesto, yes or no?

Recommended Posts

Pssm1991

I know everyone's triggers are different but I was wondering if anyone has experienced a trigger with pesto? I love it so, but am scared to try it and get an ob. I heard that pesto can be good to treat herpes, but its made from pine nuts which are high in arginine.

diet/foods are really trial and error with people.. i eat what i choose and the only thing i steer clear from are supplements with high amounts of arginine in them.. you have to feel out your body really to determine what foods are okay for you to eat.. dont restrict yourself at all by not eating a lot of foods, which this can cause stress and lower immune system sometimes... do not be scared of foods... you have to live off of food.. like i said just do trial and error, and take l-lysine supplements so it kind of takes over the arginine (cant think of the word to use lol)....so far no food bother me at all, and i would just allow yourself to eat the foods that you want, and for ALL situations moderation is alwys best... so feel it out and keep us updated okay :)

Thank you so much for the reply. Hearing that people do not have restricted diets makes me so happy. I've restricted my diet terribly since my initial ob a year ago. My second ob, 5 months after the first lasted 3 months and I'm scared of trying trial and error and getting stuck with another ob that lasts months. I know I'm going to have to have to suck it up and try things because I can't live like this forever, but I get so terribly scared of causing a never ending ob. I am taking lysine supplements to help.

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.

      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic

      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
