Bumping this thread.

 

Im coming up on 60 hours of water fast. Hoping to do this quarterly. The odd thing is I am having what I consider a outbreak which is a sharp pain on tailbone. Wondering if fasting on the outbreak which change results since virus was/is active @VVK

Hard to say. Can you confirm it was an outbreak? Maybe try a more gentle fast. It may be a matter of finding the balance between the stress response to the fast and the benefits.

Keto and Intermittent Fasting can cause hormone disruption and cause anxiety and stress for some women as well. My HSV flares up more when on strict keto. I find keto to be a very inflammatory diet actually--too much dairy and meat- unless you try dairy free.. Keto doesn't supress HSv for everyone. I suspect it may work better for men or someone who had eaten a complete terrible diet for years and this new diet becomes "healthier" for them.

By dairy do you mean butter? Because milk is not keto friendly. Keto is more eggs and meat than anything. As long as fuel can be obtained from fats rather than carbs and carbs are kept at a minimum (preferably trace complex carbs), the remaining decisions just have to do with sourcing protein. It may be tough for vegetarians and vegans, but I am sure there's a way. I don't recommend long term keto either. Just 3 months or so.

yep, butter,  heavy cream, cream cheese, cheeses and those sort of things, not plain milk ( which is high in lactose sugar, not keto). 

Meats  are inflammatory too. 

and  the issue of too much omega 6s in ratio to omega 3s. Nuts are high in arginine too.

processed carbs are also very inflammatory too though.

I like "slow" whole food carbohydrates ....like beans and squash.

      My Neurologist prescribed me Escitalopram for the nerve pain. Really haven’t started taking it, I was hoping the nerve pain just stops. Some way some how he told me that I will never have an outbreak and I haven’t..Weird?  Anyway I’m married, for 15years. When I discovered I had HSV my wife got tested as we’ll found out she had it since college!! Didn’t know that the fever blisters she got in college was HSV...I trust that this is how I got it. But wouldn’t you know she has no symptoms at all other than she knows she has it. There maybe something to this that there is something else wrong here besides HSV.

      It’s not our heads that cause the sores I think this wound be very stupid for doctors to say as you can clearly see a sore.. however I do think if you are focused on a sensation constantly you will zone in on this feeling and always notice it I suffer from anxiety anyway in general so I do think some of my sensations maybe anxiety related.. but no or course cuts/ blisters  cannot be

      I've noticed a trend of people sharing stories about doctors telling them the tingling sensation is all in their head or caused by the patient themselves. My doctors did the same thing. I explained that I am not making myself confused and dizzy nor am I causing my skin to cut itself open on my penis and lips.
