Herpatherm- not available in the US

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Been a while since I've been on line. I recently read a post here where someone was having success in preventing an OB at the onset of podrone by using a 'heat' treatment where he applied a heat to the area in question using heated water at 122*-127*. He claimed it stopped symptoms and prevented outbreaks if he cought it early enough. If he is too late, the OB was smaller and healing was faster. So, I did some google searches and I found a product that is available in Europe, Canada and other countries but not The US. So, for some of us, this could be a win. And for the US peeps, it's something we can try to McGyver up ourselves at home. Check out the reviews. Pretty encouraging I think...

Did you read the reviews from users on this?

You can use heat to treat jellyfish stings. Jellyfish use a protein based toxin and the hot water breaks the toxin down. 112* is all it takes. I have personally tried this with success. Obviously, H isn't a jellyfish sting. But the fact that heat can break down certain proteins makes this worth considering. And with overwhelming positive feedback from actual users supporting this assertion, it does not sound quite so stupid to me.

So, I decided to give the thermo approach to treating an OB on my last OB. It was triggered by alcohol and sex. I saw a small red spot that was developing into a blister on the shaft. Since you can't get the Herpatherm tool in the US, I decided to use my hair dryer. I turned it on and held it to the tip of a meat thermometer to see how far I should hold it from my skin to achieve 125* (the temp the Herpatherm reaches). Then I held my hand at this range so I knew what it felt like. I used my hand to cover the head and applied the hot air at the correct distance. It was painful for a few moments but manageable. I repeated this 3 more times that day and just before I went to bed. The blister never grew any larger and appeared to be disappearing by bedtime. The next morning, I was going to repeat the heat treatment again only to find the blister was gone and the skin was much less red. This is only one attempt but it seemed to have worked well, providing similar results described in the Herpatherm reviews on amazon. I'll try again next OB and report back.

      I like rice flour for coating. What about arrow root. I used it in recipe and it was fine. I would stay away from nut flour until you have your protocol in order.

      No, but in the right amount s it may have promise? Quercitin should only come from food Let us know what you think. If it is not high dose I would walk. I use BHT check Steve Fowkes Free book Two grams acerola cherry vit C 2g glutamine Whole vitamin like Gold liquid... I take 25% I eat somewhat clean 25mg DHEA micronized Lemon water for alkalinity sometimes apple Cider vinegar St. John's wort Idol iodine I was very vitamin deficienct Monolaurin, and black seed oil if I am breaking out Which will only happen if I am not taking my thyroid or BHT. Zinc applied to the groin area zinc sulfate

      He was helping, you just didn't see it. The number one thing you can do right now to overcome stress and depression is.... smile!

      You are only a few weeks in, the virus is causing the outbreaks regardless of whether you eat half a piece of toast, ten pieces of toast, or two bananas! You've got to wait until your immune system is in full implementation, about a year. Then it's about not stressing your immune system. 'Stress' in its holistic sense is the number one cause of outbreaks and is that way for the absolute majority of people with herpes. A lot of people might say that peanut butter is a trigger, or alcohol... however it is not these substances that are the issue in and of themselves but the WHY you had so much peanut butter or alcohol!
