Sleepless nights


Recommended Posts

I'm currently having my first outbreak and I've gone several days with barely any sleep and I'm going crazy. I am trying to keep a positive attitude but it's hard with lack of sleep. Please help.

this works for me when i had to come off sleeping tablets- lavender oil on a tissue under my pillow and a nice warm drink (milk - has some additive that induces sleep ) or chamomile tea. Then read a boring book.

I have had HSV2 for almost 35 yrs and feel your pain. You want to fight this from the inside out as well as topically.  Remember each symptom as it starts so you can identify what is happening at its initial stage so you can attack it before it attacks you!  Have you tried Oil of Oregano to stop the virus in its replication stage? I have been able to prevent outbreaks at first indication with that. These supplements also speed healing or reduce outbreaks. L-Lysine, Vitamins C & E, Acidophilus/Bifidus. Licorice is supposed to stop replication  as well so you may want to look it up. Vitamin E may help the pain if you open a capsule and apply the oil directly to lesions. Believe it or not Castor Oil packs applied to belly area work wonders to draw toxins from the body! Epsom salts bath or foot soaks. I add antiviral essential oils to the epsom salts for more punch.

 I would recommend finding a respected Naturopathic Doctor (ND) or Master Herbalist to help you, sooner than later. You will want to research foods that trigger such as peanuts to avoid and ones that offer immune support. Here are a couple links from a herbalist I follow that my help you find direction. Old post but information is relevant. This affects us all differently and what works for me may not be for you but having a place to start will give you the strength you need to fight back. We are smarter than a Virus!!!!

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
