Yearly "on time" recurrence- same month??

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1 May 2015 (big surprise to me!). Anyways, my outbreaks only come one time per year almost on time. I was just telling my boyfriend a few days ago, "Oh no! It's April, that's my HSV month!" (At least I can now find some humor and peace with it, I suffered with severe depression a couple of years ago due to the diagnosis and "stigma" behind STDs/STIs).

So here are my outbreaks: 

1st outbreak EVER: May 2015

1st Recurrence: April 2016 

2nd Recurrence: (now) April 2017

My doc wrote me a prescription for this, so I haven't been in to ask him what his thoughts are on this, but has anyone else experienced yearly, "on time" outbreaks?! 

I don't have anything consistent in my life at this time of the year.. nothing that strikes my memory of why it would happen at the same time of the year. I did recently suffer a severe sunburn in Florida, which I was reading is a nerve trigger for HSV. Well, if anyone can type their input, I would love to hear it!

      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!
