My Diary DMSO, oregano oil, coconut oil, L-lysine

Recommended Posts

TheAlchemist

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

doh!

Where exactly do you put the ointment-ie where is the base of your spine?

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.

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

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.

Superb news! I thought you were long gone, thanks for coming back in!!!! Happy dancing with you!:barmy:

This is a pretty complete list at the bottom of one of your articles https://justherpes.com/herpesremedies/natural-herpes-remedies-list-home-cures/

Quote

Aloe Vera

Research from 1999 showed that Aloe Vera cream actually heals genital herpes outbreaks when applied to the infected area, and fast, in 70% of study participants. Aloe cream seems to work best, but freezing pieces of aloe and using them topically can also help. (Read more about Aloe Cream for herpes and where to buy).

Baking Soda

Some say baking soda can improve the alkalinity of the body’s pH, which helps prevent outbreaks. Others use it topically for faster healing of sores, but warn that it burns. We’re not sure we recommend this one.

BHT

BHT is usually used as a food preservative for fats and oils, and that’s the only thing it is approved for by the FDA. However, it has documented anti-viral properties and some herpes sufferers report success using it to stop outbreaks by taking it in small doses. Others warn that it may be toxic in higher doses. This is a remedy that is more controversial than others.

Cayenne

A teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of warm water may help stop outbreak symptoms, including neuralgia. A derivative of cayenne, Capsaicin ointment may help relieve pain when applied topically.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a fantastic, proven natural herpes remedy. Coconut oil’s lauric acid is proven to have antiviral effects. The body converts it to monolaurin, which destroys the coating around lipid-enclosed viruses. Specifically, it has been shown to disintegrate the herpes simplex virus in in vitro testing. (Recommended: Nutiva Coconut Oil).

DMSO

Another controversial home remedy for herpes.

Epsom Salt

Most people know that Epsom salt can be added to baths to relieve muscle cramps. It’s also sometimes used as a natural herpes remedy to make herpes blisters heal faster. Just soak in a tub of it for 10-30 minutes. Epsom salt has lots of other health benefits, too. (Read more about Epsom Salt for herpes).

Grapefruit seed extract

Grapefruit seed extract is a natural disinfectant that also kills viruses, bacteria and fungi. It is generally considered to be safe for people who are not allergic. It is used by mixing one part of the extract with nine parts water and then dabbing this mixture onto the affected area with a cotton swab.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Some people report results from diluting food-grade hydrogen peroxide in distilled water. It’s doubtful that doctors would recommend this.

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

Lemon balm can be used by soaking a cotton ball with lemon balm extract and dabbing it on any signs of a herpes outbreak. Lemon balm tea can be used to wash the area as well. It’s available as a tincture, a tea, or in pill form (like these lemon balm softgels). Adding a bit of lemon balm to water everyday may even cut back on the amount of times you have a herpes outbreak. (Read more about Lemon Balm for herpes and where to buy).

Lysine

Lysine and arginine are amino acids found in foods. Of all the natural herpes remedies, earmark this one now. It’s important to balance these in your diet so you are consuming more lysine than arginine if you want to have fewer herpes outbreaks.

Manuka Honey

High-grade manuka honey is the only type of honey that should be used for natural herpes treatment. A 2002 review of Manuka honey’s antibacterial properties concluded that it was potentially useful for many types of wounds. It is used by dabbing it on the infected area several times per day. (Read more about and buy Manuka Honey for herpes).

Monolaurin

Monolaurin supplements have been shown to reduce viral loads in test subjects. The body can also make this helpful substance by consuming coconut oil.

Neem Oil

Neem is a medicinal herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine and is nicknamed “Nature’s Drugstore”. Neem oil can be applied topically to treat herpes, and used as neem tea to prevent outbreaks. (Read more about Neem Oil for herpes and where to buy).

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract is used to treat herpes by taking 500mg tablets. It contains elenolic acid, which has the ability to inhibit viruses. The tablets are reputed to relieve outbreak sores, increase healing time, and restore energy levels that may have been depleted by the virus’ active phase. One private study showed that olive leaf extract tablets treated an outbreak more effectively than prescription acyclovir, which just goes to show the usefulness of natural herpes remedies. (Read more about Olive Leaf for herpes and where to buy).

Oil of Oregano

Reputed to kill viruses, this beneficial (but funny tasting) oil can be used by taking drops under the tongue and by applying it to the affected area. Dr. Cass Ingram’s book, “The Cure is in the Cupboard,” even recommends rubbing it over the area of the spinal column to help fight off genital herpes! Oil of Oregano also makes your body’s pH level more alkaline, which prevents outbreaks. The highest grade oil of oregano will be labeled “P73” on the bottle. If you can get past the taste, this might be for you.

Red Marine Algae

Specific types of red marine algae are immunity boosters with antiviral properties, especially known for being effective for virus sufferers. Red algae is usually taken orally in capsule form to prevent or stop herpes outbreaks from HSV-1 and HSV-2. (Read more about Red Marine Algae for herpes and where to buy).

Tea Tree Oil

Of all the natural herpes remedies, tea tree oil seems to be the most popular and well-known. This herpes remedy has a reputation for relieving both oral herpes and genital herpes within hours. It’s a natural antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal that can boost immunity and fight off infections. (Read more about Tea Tree Oil for herpes and where to buy).

Visarpa Clay

Visarpa clay is an Ayurvedic treatment for herpes that is known to stimulate the healing process and relieve pain. It can be applied to the infected area as a paste, and is sold primarily online. (Read more about Visarpa Clay for herpes and where to buy).

Vitamin C

Vitamin C can be taken orally on a regular basis to stop herpes outbreaks, and applied topically to areas affected by herpes outbreaks.

Zinc

Zinc is used as a supplement or as a topical zinc cream. Studies have shown that zinc cream can deactivate the herpes virus and can inhibit the virus’ reproduction. There are also many zinc-rich foods you could add to your diet. (Read more about Zinc for herpes and where to buy).

Superb news! I thought you were long gone, thanks for coming back in!!!! Happy dancing with you!:barmy:

This is a pretty complete list at the bottom of one of your articles https://justherpes.com/herpesremedies/natural-herpes-remedies-list-home-cures/

 

I am pretty much taking most of the items on that list. I did stop taking the Red Marine Algae a couple days ago as I am trying to shrink the list of supplements down to what exactly works for me. I do like the coconut oil. It's great to rub on and it tastes just as good. Of course I don't think I can do more than a couple spoonfuls at a time. I do hope this one works as I started using it in my eggs as well.

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.

If you google “where is the nerve ganglion,” you’ll see that it is at the point where the nerves leave the spinal cord. So, putting the oil at the base of the spine makes sense, because that’s where the ganglion are, and that is where the latent virus is hiding. Now. The big question is... can the oil be absorbed through the skin and muscle and reach the nerve... and pass through the cell wall?  I don’t know, but I’m trying this method as well. It can’t hurt. Oregano oil has a lot of heating properties besides potentially killing The Herp. I’ve never heard of DMSO, but I’m going to look into it now!

Cells allow entry via their receptors. Those receptors are like a lock. If a substance has the right key to that lock, only then is the substance allowed entry. Oregano oil molecules are not allowed entry into a nerve cell. End of story.

By the way, even if a substance was allowed into a cell does not mean it can kill the virus in the cell; i.e. What a substance can do outside of a person does not necessarily correlate to what happens inside the cell.

As far as absorbing through the skin, and past the muscle, NO.

      All I have been doing is research over the past three weeks and I still don’t even know where to begin this post because it’s still so shocking. This post might be long but I hope someone will read it and help me.  I feel like the doctors don’t really truly know about this topic in depth and I have no one to learn from and I’m so so scared.
      My first outbreak was 10 months ago. I had just had sex with a new person and started my period.  The doctor said it was BV and a yeast infection.  I knew that it couldn’t just be that.  My labia was terribly swollen and cut up that it was so painful to go to the bathroom.  Got better but then was cut up again about 2 weeks later and I think after antibiotics really had a yeast infection too.  About 3 weeks ago I felt really itchy one day and the next day I had a cut on my inner labia and started my period that same day.  After closely inspecting it I realized that maybe it could be a blister.  I got the doctor to swab it and they confirmed it was hsv2.  From the time the doc saw it my labia did get a little more raw but def not as bad as what happened 10 months ago.  Of course at that point my stress levels are high and I went back to the doctor a week later to get tested for everything else to make sure I was ok.  So of course high stress again.  Once my initial cut was healed I shaved and ended up with what I think was another outbreak but this time next to my outer labia.  I went back and forth if it was from shaving but I feel like there were two spots and they had itched and were painful. Those spots are not fully healed but no longer hurt.  This morning and for most of the day I felt a sunburn type feeling on my right butt.  When I’m looking at it now I swear that I can see these small bump patches that might look like little blisters ... I don’t think they look like regular little butt bumps. They are so small and it’s hard to see but it does feel tender.  So this makes it seem like the 3rd little outbreak within 3 weeks.   I have always had very dry sensitive skin and I have been very super aware of every little thing since this diagnosis.  I’m supposed to start my period next week and I’m terrified that with it will come a 4th little outbreak.  This is not as painful as that first outbreak but it’s more upsetting cause it feels like it’s lasting longer.
       
      1. Does any of what I’m describing sound normal.  Can you get it in 3 different spots within 3 weeks like this? Why does it keep restarting and it didn’t last time.  Is it ever going to end!? 
      2. How can I figure out what this is going to be like for me if every single circumstance has had different symptoms.
      3. I thought it was mostly supposed to be in the same place so why does this seem like 3 different places? Also, the spot on my butt if it’s hsv2 is this just a place where it can show up or did I spread it there?
      4. If this is a spot on my butt does this mean that I can shed there? I’m so terrified of spreading this to my family.  The spot on my butt is in a place that could be potentially touched by someone as it’s on the top and wouldn’t maybe be covered by s bathing suit. If I’m holding my niece on my hips and her legs happen to rub against that part of my butt and I’m shedding could I pass it to her.  
      5. I went 10 months between these outbreaks and I’m hoping that I won’t have to deal with this often but I’m not understanding why all of the sudden for 3 weeks I’m having something new pop up each week.  I’m so scared that this is going to be my new normal.  I just want to feel like me again and comfortable in my own skin and for the last three weeks all I’ve felt is uncomfortable in my skin.  
      I’d appreciate any help that someone who has been through this can help. I feel hopeless
      I’ve been taking everyday

      b. Vitamin c
      c. Vitamin d

      Hey guys, new here as of today. I’m currently 27 weeks pregnant and I’ve been having more days with outbreaks (single lesion, same spot) than not. I’m praying for a vaginal delivery but obviously want to do what’s best for My Baby but the thoughts of not being able to bring baby into the world vaginally wrecks me...  At 20 weeks I was diagnosed with HSV2 after requesting testing because I had known for probably 3 years but was too ashamed and was in denial to go to a dr  and get the actual diagnosis but wanted to take all precautions for my baby... Anyway, the DR put me on Valacyclovir 3x a day for 7 days and then 2x a day. I noticed absolutely no change.  It was like that one lesion would heal for 2 days and then come back for a week. Today I asked her to switch medications and she told me to just keep taking the Valacyclovir for suppression. I guess my question(s) are #1) how long did it take some of you to see suppression?  2) How many of you had to have a c-section because of active lesions and 3) did anyone’s dr miss a lesion during delivery and was your baby ok? I’m so torn because I don’t want my family to know and what am I suppose to tell them in the event of a c-section when they’ll all be there at the time? 😭—
       
      Thank you for any and all comments in advance. I’m so hoping I can find some peace of mind within this forum. 
      PS: Recently I found that Tree Tea Oil keeps the lesion away longer than the medication did and the dr gave me the ok to continue. Anyone else?

      Does anybody have any suggestions on how you deal with pain at work or when you are out? I have hsv2 I am in the beginning of a break out this one is bad. I can’t really afford to call in so if anybody has any tips I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.

      Has anyone experienced hsv2 on the face/lip/cheek? 
      I know everyone is different but does it look the same as hsv1?

      Hello, fellow reader I am in the process of having the government of Canada start a experimental treatment to cure herpes. I have been following alot of the research sexual transmitted illiness, and have noticed good results for gene therapy. I reason to believe that herpes can be cured within the next 2 years. With an experimental gene treatment. With recent cure of cells with HIV using crispr cas9. I believe a cured can achieve using a cocktail of drugs and gene therapy.  The process works by forcing the virus to awaken, while pumping antiviral to stop the spread of the virus. This would allow crispr cas9 to more easily to shred the herpe's DNA in the cell. This would also be combined with a TRIM5α Proteins to prevent the spread replication of the virus. Alot of this optimism comes from the gene therapy treatment that show results with current gene therapy treatments that appears to be successful. I am currently looking for people who live in Canada and are citizens or permanent resident. To join me in the process. If this is successful after a 12 month to 24 months treatment, a subject may be cured of virus permanently. This could also pave the way for future cure in other viral infection like herpes.
       
      Requirements 
      Living in Canada 
      Covered by national healthcare plan.
      Willing to be part of experimental treatment.
       
      Any one who does not meet these requirements can comment but may not be able to assist with the process.

      I would not be the first one, plenty of others here on the forum who get recurrent OBs despite heavy doses of antivirals. The blisters appear exactly in/around the spot where I had my first OB 4 years ago, plus all the symptoms I have are those commonly described as HSV-2 symptoms. In my opinion, it's a clear case.  But your suggestion is definitely an option that should not be ruled out. I'll wait until I get a bad enough OB again so I can go get another swab test. The outbreak needs to be bad enough to be able to break the blisters to get the liquid from inside right? I recall hearing something like this when I got tested years ago. The doctor used a swab that had tiny needles on it that would pop the blisters open. Do you know if this is right, i.e. you will not get a positive swab just from a mild OB / redness?

      90% elimination of the latent virus in thr ganglia probably will be a functional cure. Sure the small remaining amount can reactivate, but thete is a viral load threshhold for transmission. More than likely that won't be enough to cause transmission, or enough shedding for transmission. Damage enough of the latent virus and we are good to go. There is already a Crispr trial on humans going on right now https://newatlas.com/crispr-trial-underway-vertex-gene-therapy/58643/ So we are just waiting on Keith Jerome's lab and Excision Biotherapeutics to begin their trials. I've beem following Crispr for years now, and it keeps gettimg more accurate. I believe researchers at Duke have recently made a big breakthrough on accuracy, by changing the level of regulation instead of cutting DNA. I wonder if these labs collaborate with others such as Jerome's?

      No need to be tired at all, I'm sorry of you cannot accept the facts surrounding testing, but here they are. Your note is full of inaccuracies so let's iron those out. I don't need you to believe anything, I am just putting the facts out there. Here's a few studies: https://jcm.asm.org/content/37/5/1632 Here we have 29 patients with recent HSV-2 infection... 100% turned positive, 0% false negatives. https://jcm.asm.org/content/36/3/845/figures-only Here we have over 1,000 positive samples from people who have swabbed positive and compared to three different blood tests - over 95% accurate. https://jcm.asm.org/content/26/4/662?ijkey=9ebe349f98ed94f019ed788604c8fa19864a2c7e&keytype2=tf_ipsecsha Here we have 76 people who swabbed positive, the Westernblot detected 99% and an immunoblot 96%. Can you elaborate what is vague about these items of research. I'm sure now you'll want to review the references to these papers where you'll find even more. Some of them are in easy text for the beginner. So you stand corrected, it is in fact your comments that are spreading misinformation. That is not tolerated on this website. Also what nonsense that people do not get lesions to swab upon infection? Where did you read that? Hello Dolly? I'm afraid it is back to the books for you to do some more research before having such a rambunctious spew like above. STOP IT - we are all tired of your unsubstantiated drivel. This is 2019 we want something tangible, something real, something sound and wholesome and not drooling rants equal of the park bench antics of the drunks at 2am Sunday morning! I will NEVER stop because no matter how immature, how bombastic, how fantastic, how inaccurate, how frivolous, how false the spew that ends up on this website - the TRUTH will always be the light, the love, the guidance, the deliverance and the justice... no matter how many capitalised swear words are thrown!

      I took an IgG blood test 6 months after the episode. HSV-2 was negative (less than .91) and HSV-1 was high at 3.18
    • RainyDay2
      My comment was about THE BLOOD TEST!  You’re 95-100% accuracy for it?  Garbage.  Pure garbage.  You might as well have pulled that number out of your ass. Google search HIV accuracy... almost every medical site will tell you 4th generation HIV testing is as close to 99.9% percent you can possibly get after a certain period of elapsed time.  They will pretty much GUARANTEE you that you are indeed negative if you have a negative test. That defined certainty of accuracy WILL NOT AND CAN NOT be found for HSV blood tests.  You get vague descriptions of it’s accuracy from almost every site you visit.  NO CERTAINTIES.  Thousands of us on these forums KNOW the test isn’t accurate. When your score is between 1.1 and 3.5, this could be a false positive.  Certain sites list almost 1 in 2 tests can be false positives.  50 fucking percent!! And you want me to believe the test is 95-100% accurate? How come so many sites also seem to dance around the possibility of false negatives?   All that isn’t necessary in HIV testing.  Because if YOU DO get a low positive, the confirmatory HIV test checks for the actual VIRUS in your system.   And there are almost NO FALSE NEGATIVES.    NO HSV BLOOD TEST CAN DO THAT! Not even the Western Blot.  At the end of the day, it’s just a more detailed look at antibodies.  And many sites will tell you a “small” number of people may never develop. How small are we talking???? That can be any number.   Trash. And again, a large margin of people with herpes DO NOT GET LESIONS to be swabbed.  Google tells you that.  If majority of herpes infected have nothing to swab,  well that pretty much makes PCRs and cultures worthless for the most part doesn’t it?  If there is nothing to swab after a year, in your words, you are clear of herpes. BULLSHIT! So Wilso, just stop it.  You have never done scientific testing in a lab yourself on herpes. You are not a doctor.  You are constantly telling people false information.  Assuring them of promises you have no authority to make.  I’ve seen you do it time and time again.  Do you have regrets???????????  Im tired of your lies.
