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.

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
