Help with results

Ok so I have had this knowing for about 4 months. I got it from my current partner. I finally received her results and it says the IGG was 14.70 does that indicate an infection for a while or could antibodies develop that high in 6 months? It ultimately doesn't matter because we both have it but I am just curious as to what that number indicates.

My understanding is that once it's established and in the strong positive range (which it typically would be after 4 months of time for antibodies to build up) the number doesn't tell you anything about how long you've had it. For example I believe my number was around 5 recently and I've had this over 17 years... it's possible it was higher or lower when I'd only had it 4 months. My understanding is that the only time the number is more telling is if you have a positive swab and a negative IgG and then a few months later a positive IgG. That indicates that initial swab was likely a new infection. Hope that helps but others can chime in...

No it does help she believes she got infected by her ex a couple months before we started talking to each other. She's not sure but that's what she suspects. I was just curious thank you.

Hi Blah, wanting to just know for sure just doesn't go away, does it?  I understand exactly how you feel. Ii think we think knowing for sure will somehow make our choice of action more justifiable or understandable.  Follow your heart whenever you feel ready....you know what I mean.

You cannot be overly sure, but I'd suggest the infection is at least 2-3 months old. The testing supports your partner's thinking regarding when infection occurred.

      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!
