Hey i have been using something for a while now and I'm convinced it works. I don't want to be greedy so I'll share my recipe and I'd be interested to know how u get on. Can be used as a daily ointment on the area effected or 3 x a day when u sense an outbreak coming on applied with cotton wool.

25 ml fractioned coconut oil

25 ml virgin olive oil

12 drops Tea Tree oil

20 drops origano oil

 8 drops propolis liquid

 

Mix well before use and if any irritation increase olive/coconut oils

 

Good luck

I also want to keep u up to date with my progress. I use the above to treat/stop an outbreak and have recently started the following to work on ridding myself of the virus altogether.

Morning and evening 5 drops of an oregano oil mixed with unrefined olive oil under the tongue. Mix 8-10 drops of oregano oil to every ounce of olive oil. Shake well before use.

I will rub 4 drops of oregano oil mixed with pure coconut oil at the base of my spine. Only recently added dmso to this.

 

Well it's  been 3 weeks so far and no hint of an ob. Ill keep u posted

Feel down your back from your waist, follow the curve out to the point that is furthest outward. From that point back up your spine for about 6" will cover your root and sacral chakras for optimal healing.

Makes no sense.

The virus lives in the nerves of the ganglion. When it activates, it travels from the cell body of those nerve cells, along the axon, and eventually to the synaptic knob just below the skin at the location where the infection entered your body. In other words, the skin of your genitals. When you apply your witches brew to the skin area where your ganglion resides, what do you think actually happens that would in anyway stymie an OB?

I hear a lot of "spread this on your spine" stuff from herbalists with no logical explanation as to how it is supposed to work.

To cas9. My way of thinking is if the virus is trying to break out in an environment thats designed to kill it, then it will be unsuccessful or at least less successfull. I didnt pick these things at random, i  done a lot of research/trial and error and wouldn't bother posting if I hadn't had some success with it.

Heres a few threads I've read amoungst countless others.

No Alchemist, that's not how it works. Your potion does not pass through your skin, absorb into the nerve bodies of your infected ganglion, and subsequently kill the virus. That doesn't happen. Therefore, the virus will persist in the nerve. Each nerve cell in the ganglion, is comprised of the nerve body, a nerve axon, and the synaptic knob. Here's a picture of a nerve cell:

https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEVvxWReJYqSYAtSUnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjB0aG5zBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=Nerve+Cell&fr=yhs-mozilla-004&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-004#id=1&iurl=http%3A%2F%2Fres.cloudinary.com%2Fdk-find-out%2Fimage%2Fupload%2Fq_80%2Cw_1440%2FAW_Nerve_impulse2_tcnrmm.jpg&action=click

The left side orange thing with the purple in the center is the nerve body. The long yellow thing in the middle of the diagram is the axon. And the axon then leads to the thing on the right with all those smaller orange branches with circles at the end. The circles at the end are the synaptic knobs, which are just under your skin. But not the skin at the base of your spine; the skin of your genitals where the virus entered.

So the way you were infected was the virus got on your genitals, broke through the epidermis/skin, entered the synaptic knob, traveled down the axon, and entered the nerve cell body of the ganglion, establishing latency. This occurred in many of the nerve cells when you got your infection, not just one nerve cell. And it all started at your genitals and all of it ended up in multiple nerve bodies in your ganglion.

When the latent viruses in the nerve bodies awakes from time to time, it travels down the axon of each infected nerve cell body, and replicates in the area of the synaptic knob. Those new viral particles emerge from the synaptic knob and infect your skin cells at your genital area, and replicate in those cells also. The result is lesions/sores. In the meantime the latent virus returns to the nerve cell body where it goes into dormancy. When it wakes up again, it repeats the above process, giving you another OB.

The path is always the same; the infected nerve cell body in the ganglion, to the skin of the genital area where you were infected, back and forth. Putting your salve at the base of the spine will do nothing. Of course if you think it's doing something, that's what we call the placebo effect.

Do you know much about DMSO cas? I'm interested to get your opinion on it. From what i read It has a uniquique ability to penetrate nerve cells and in laymen's terms is also absorbed along with anything its mixed with into the body. I'm no doctor, i take everything I read with a pinch of salt, I've tried many alternatives to my current regime and there was no "placebo effect" achived then. My "potion" at the top isn't a cure, I'm not suggesting this is will surf up your ganglions and kill anything that moves. I've found if I catch it early enough it prevents any sores developing or massivley reduces the recovery period. It kicks the shit out of acyclovir (for me). I dont take those anymore as the make me feel sick and seem to have next to no effect. The DMSO & oregano oil on the area of the spine is something I'm trying as I have read a lot of interesting articles and testimonials on it and I think its worth a shot. If it fails I'll post it up here as knowone seems to post the long term results of this. It's almost 4 weeks now and so far so good :)

Week 5 getting way to confident. I have kept my eating and drinking reletively healthy these last few months up until this last week.

I hadn't felt so symptom free since the b4 the diagnosis and endulged in a lot of the no go food and drink feeling invincible :/

Dissapointed to say had an ob 2 days ago, albeit the most minor ob to date as has all but dissappeared already.

The info I've read says it's quite normal to have an ob during this treatment so im cracking on.

5 weeks my new record :) Resetting the clock.

And how was your ob's before this natural remedy ? 5 weeks without an ob and before it ? I am thinking to do the same remedy but without the coconut  oil I heard it's very bad for herpes but the rest are very good. But I don't have visible blisters only the 24/7 itching I don't know if it could work for me or not will try and update as well we have to find ourselves alternative solutions since the medical community left us like the street dogs

Hi Mackie. Before my obs were every 2 weeks and pretty much every time after sex. I have stopped applying to the base is my back since my last post, but continue to use this little ointment which is approx 10 drops dmso, 5 drops oregano oil and 15-20 drop fractioned coconut oil. I randomly apply it like every 2 to 3 days and every time after sex to the area thats affected. I haven't had an ob since the last and it's about 3 months now!:)

I also maintain 1 lysine tablets a day and 1 vit c both 1000mg

The only other things I have changed is completely cutting out coffee and stopping the occasional cigarette iused to have socially. So far so good. I actually feel normal again!!!!

Cas - thanks for that explanation, very helpful. I have also found the "apply X at base of spine" to be a bit voodoo but to each his own.

In same vein, given the process you described and many people whose HSV2 goes dormant; let me ask your opinion on the following. can the virus be reached at the synaptic knobs on your genitals? If a substance with proven anti-HSV2 qualities hijacked the virus at that point; could it be suppressed? Is that how conventional AV meds work? Just trying to understand it a bit more - got it a few months ago. Thanks.

In the US, and mainstream medicine, this is the common theory but in alternative medicine, they look at the body/healing in a completely different way. In Europe, most specifically Germany and France there is plenty of evidence that shows that oils do enter cells. Also, there are internal oil treatments. I don't know about herpes cures but its very difficult to get a hold of their medical journals, also the FDA and pharmaceutical companies have no interest in pursuing that line of treatment.

 8 drops propolis liquid

 

Mix well before use and if any irritation increase olive/coconut oils

 

Good luck

I also want to keep u up to date with my progress. I use the above to treat/stop an outbreak and have recently started the following to work on ridding myself of the virus altogether.

Morning and evening 5 drops of an oregano oil mixed with unrefined olive oil under the tongue. Mix 8-10 drops of oregano oil to every ounce of olive oil. Shake well before use.

I will rub 4 drops of oregano oil mixed with pure coconut oil at the base of my spine. Only recently added dmso to this.

 

Well it's  been 3 weeks so far and no hint of an ob. Ill keep u posted

Still going strong with this. such long periods between obs now and the few (2 since first post) I've had were to be expected. i.e. long periods with no rest, high stress + silly diet. One thing I have learned is that storing mix in an eye dropper bottle seems to maintain its potency. I had it in an open top dish b4 but seemed to get weaker as time went on. 

Has anyone tried this?

 

This is all I use now only when needed as above along with olive leaf extract for a day or two capsules if I feel any prodrone symptoms

 

oh and one 1 x lysine per day for good measure

I applaud your dedication to self and your pursuit to finding what is most appropriate for your healing. I question why you are using Fractionated Coconut Oil over regular virgin coconut oil? That process removes the lauric acid which is an hsv fighter.

"One of the fatty acids that’s mostly removed in fractionation is lauric acid—a type of “healthy” saturated fat found in high quantities in coconut and palm kernel oils. It’s a great fat to have in skin care because it’s so moisturizing and cleansing. Removing it, though, gives us the liquid product . Once the lauric acid and other long-chain fatty acids are gone, you’re still left with a lot of good stuff, including medium chain fatty acids like capric, caprylic, myristic and palmitic, all of which retain their super-moisturizing capabilities. You also still have the natural antioxidants, which protect from environmental stressors, and nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E."

If it is just for the convenience of liquid, putting a small amount in your hand will liquefy it quick enough. You are using essential oils and they degrade quickly in oxygen so yes keeping covered and cool is important to the integrity and strength. Did you do the calculations on what percentage of essential oils you are using to carrier oil and wondered why you chose that number? Not saying anything wrong just wondered your rational for that strength.

I hope you are aware to give your body a break from these strong essential oils after a period of time to allow it to rest and absorb because too much of a good thing can also be hard on the body.

Great that you seem to be reducing your OB frequency but you are dreaming if you think you are killing the virus in your nerve cells. Maybe the virus you’re shredding externally by that’s it. You’d have to open your spine and rub into your nerve cells.

I don't think I'm killing the virus in my nerve cells, did I say that? I gave up on the whole rubbing dmso and oregano oil into the base of the spine thing as it it wasn't great for the skin and I didn't really note any remarkable results. 

Just using the oil blend for management now. if a cure comes out great. for now I'm quite content feeling that I got a handle on it.

Apologies. I actually did go back to regular coconut oil. I did use the other stuff for convenience but I found the regular Coconut oil dissolves into oil once mixed with rest of the oils anyway.

      Has anyone ever heard of capturing the secretions of your herpes breakout in tiny medical jar so that the virus can be collected and put into pills so that you can take them on the daily as a way to prevent recurring outbreaks?
      I had a naturopath suggest this option to me as a way to decrease outbreaks. He even gave me the jar to capture and bring back to him whenever I have my next outbreak. Something about reintroducing your own herpes virus into your body helps build your immune system? Anyway someone there testified to it working for them for the past 6 months so I'm actually considering it. What do you guys think?

      So I had a rash on my vag. Peeling skin, burning and swollen. Two doctors confirmed it was an allergic reaction to clyndomyacin. While they were checking, they ran an STD test which showed I was positive for chlyamidia. I took meds and cleared that up. My urgent care doctor said I should do a follow up visit and check for syphillis and HIV because those are sometimes connected with Chlamydia. I then went and got tested & my primary care doctor also put on a herpes IgG blood test. All my results were negative except HSV2 I tested as follows : HSV1 negative .02 & HSV2 positive 8.0. In my head I was thinking there no possible way I’ve never had a bump lump lesion nothing ever that resembled herpes before. I did tons of researching and freaking out. My doctor then calls me on Monday and told me “all your tests are negative you do not have any STDs” and i said no no no hold on my “mychart” says I’m HSV positive and it’s a high positive and she said correct you have had it in the past but not currently. And I said that doesn’t make sense once you have it you always have it and she said yes it stays dormant but because you have never had a break out it’s notning to worry about and I’m STD free. I then called my Gyno and asked her the exact same thing & she said “your primary care doctor should not have given you that test that test has a very high rate of false positives and being that you have never had symptoms of herpes in your life it doesn’t make sense that you have herpes. She then told me “your other doctor was correct to presume your test is negative and your STD free” and I said so I’m good I have nothing to worry about? & she said “nope if you ever see a lump bump or open sore I want to see you immediately, however I don’t see that happening” (side note all I could see were the test results not any extra notes or anything else that doctors can see) 
      shoukd I still be concerned ? Should I tell future sex partners i have HSV2? Should i get another blood test ? Do I have herpes or not ?

      HSV. Everyone's favorite topic! If you read my other piece, you know about my struggle with Viral Meningitis. But now I get to share with you (because it was just shared with me) how I got it. As if I wasn’t already depressed, hurt, and confused, here comes the nurse from the hospital calling to tell me that one of the possible causes of Viral Meningitis is the Herpes Simplex Virus and they tested me for it when I was there. Surprise! I have the Herpes Simplex Virus type 2, or as I like to put it, Genital Herpes. I cried almost as loud as I did the day I got the severe headache from the Meningitis. I immediately thought, I am 21 years old and my life is over. I thought about all the cons, no more dating, the difficulties having children without infecting them, dating rejection, my friends judging me, having to worry about infecting people around me, every possible negative thought came rushing at me all at once. I can not believe this is happening to me.
       
      I had to mourn the death of the person I once was for a few days of course, but after coming to, I realized that although it is not curable, this is not a death sentence. I thought let me learn a little more about this before I just shut out the world and everyone in it. I found that 1 out of 6 people have HSV. So if you know more than 6 people, one of them most likely has some form of HSV. Some people know, some people don't, but they do. So yeah that is A LOT of the population. Some people get symptoms like itching, burning, and bumps on their genitals sometimes and some people can go years without having one single outbreak. There are Antiviral medications and even suppressive treatments to help lessen the outbreaks. To prevent the spread of the infection you can:
       
      Use condoms
      getting regular STI tests and ensuring sexual partners also get tested regularly
      reducing the number of sexual partners
      being in a long-term monogamous relationship with an uninfected person
      avoiding sexual activity during outbreaks of the herpes virus
      using anti-herpes medication daily if one partner has the herpes virus
      abstaining from sexual activity
      Source: WEBMD.com

       
      The best thing to do if you find out you have HSV is to contact your doctor so they can answer all of your questions and help you find the best option for treating the infection.
       
      On another note, I felt like although I could treat it to minimize outbreaks, dating is going to be a nightmare from now on. I thought, who would want to be with someone with Herpes, one of the scariest STIs out there. I immediately thought ok, well what if I find someone with herpes like me to date, I could possibly find a guy that way. I mean, who could turn away someone with the same condition as them? This notion, I soon found out was a problem. I signed up for a HSV dating site and I realized that I was scared to share too many details about myself and even post a picture of myself. I noticed that I was scared to reveal that I had herpes even on a HSV dating site. Odd, I know. I was struggling accepting my truth.
       
      I went on to search for forums, discussion boards, etc (as I did when I found out I had Meningitis). I was searching for people my age with HSV who were struggling in the LOVE department. I found them. I could not help but fully relate to every single person on the discussion board. It was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. One blogger expressed how she would never sign up for a HSV dating site, as it can influence people who carry the virus to conform to only talking to or being with others who have it which is crazy. She opened my eyes to understand that we are all people and should not live under the stigma that Herpes is this big scary monster thing and we have to alienate ourselves from the rest of society. After all HSV is really just a few outbreaks of uncomfortable bumps and itching. It's not to say you shouldn't be careful with your health, it is just that the stigma behind Herpes is that it's a death sentence and its not.
       
      The posts made me laugh and informed me of so much. People my age, in college just like me, everywhere, going through the same exact thing. One girl and guy on the board went on to say don't be afraid to disclose that you have the virus to people. The girl told about 50 guys and had  only been rejected by about 5 of them or so. She had been in 7 relationships post HSV. A guy said the girl he met had it and he didn't really care and slept with her. All of this was good news to me, not because I just HAVE to be in a relationship or have sex, but to know that I don't have to restrict myself to find love or be ashamed of myself for my condition. I also learned to ditch the stigma because its not as bad as anyone thinks and is easily contracted. Anyone can get it and not even know it.  
       
      I don't know if I am quite as ready as these folks to be as open as they are with HSV, but I can say that I had a huge sigh of relief that I can be if I choose to. Tip of the day is to not be afraid of rejection. Not everyone will reject you.Take a chance, try it, disclose to someone and be positive about it, because you won't know the outcome until you try!
       
      These are the two websites I went to to research: The first is the forum from the people’s stories that I used in my entry. The other is an article. I hope you find these as helpful as I did.
