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.

      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

      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
