A dual protocol, with updates

Recommended Posts


Ok so my first post here, and I'll give a quick introduction. HSV2 popped up several years ago, and I became one of the unlucky few where it got worse with time so I spent 2/3 of the time always in a OB. Not fun, but the upside is I became a great guinea pig to test the effectiveness of different remedies. I'm not an overly holistic individual, but western medicine doctors do truly frustrate me, as they want you in and out as quick as possible, and just write you a script so they can hurry off to the next patient. Through multiple injuries and now this, I can appreciate alternative therapies and practitioners. I'm a big believer in a yin and yang theory, and anything that can be created, can be destroyed, anything that can cause life can also take life, there is never a problem without an answer... you get the picture.

So, I was sure there was to be some ways to at least get this in check and possibly over time start cleaning it out of your body. Over the past few years I've dabbled in about everything you could find on a google search. I keep records of what I was trying and how I reacted. Lots of stuff was... complete nonsense. Lots helped, a few really made a difference. I'm still playing with some TCM stuff but it's really hit or miss. However, I think I have enough anecdotal evidence from me and a few others, to start a protocol that I plan on following for the year to see how it works and wanted to see if anyone else wanted to try and provide first of the month updates along with me. I believe the key to everything is consistency, so ... this is relatively cheap and easy to follow, and as long as you're consistent, let's try this.

2 steps. From inside and from out.


Olive Leaf - 6 grams a day

Daily intake of an antiviral. I take a few but hands down the one I noticed the most impact from was Olive Leaf. If you have never taken it and you have an OB, take it... and you'll notice your OB will get 3x worse. But THEN, actually heal faster. So basically blows it up, purges it out, and then heals up. Out of everything from Lemon Balm, to Elderberry to oddball stuff from a witch doctor in Tahiti... Olive Leaf was the one I could actually witness a reaction with. I believe most people take too little of it though, and since it's very low toxicity, I'll be doing a minimum of 6 grams a day. 2 grams at 3 intervals. You can find the powdered leaf online and either shake it up with a lil juice to take it as a shot, or buy a cheap $12 capsule maker and make your own 00 caps.



Zinc Sulfate Spray - 8 times a day

A search on this site and on google will show that there is a good argument for topical Zinc. I've played with a few kinds and strengths and like Olive Leaf, it's one of the few I've tried where I noticed a definite difference. From the studies I've been able to find, it appears Zinc ions draws the virus to the surface (so be prepared for a bit more of an OB than expected), and then kills it. So the hope is that it will not allow as much of the virus to go back into latency, instead, it holds and kills it. So I will be using 2 teaspons of Zinc Sulfate with 1/2 liter of water, mixed up well and kept in the fridge, and then pouring that into small spray bottles (you can find tiny purse sized ones that fit in your palm online for 50 cents each), and then using that as a quick topical spray atleast 8 times a day, every day, unless you have scabs from an OB... in that case let them heal as Zinc will then start to irritate the skin.

Do a bit of research on Zinc first before trying this as you'll want to supplement with copper while on this and if Sulfate irritates your skin then either water it down a little more, or roughly double the amount and use Zinc Gluconate instead. Everyone has different tolerances so just watch how your skin reacts and adjust the zinc potency as needed.

If anyone wants to join and report monthly, it'd be a lot more organized than random hit or miss trials. This protocol is simple, cheap and should be much safer than some of these collaidal silver/bleach/liquid oxygen $#@! I have seen. Feel free to research and tweak if you'd like (for example I may use prunella tea instead of water for my zinc topical), and just report monthly if there is progress. Any other supplements that help the immune system in general, would of course be beneficial and I do believe a supplement that breaks down the lipid coating of the virus (such as monolaurin or BHT) would be very beneficial to add in.

I use nigella setiva and cats claw morning and night 2 capsules. Also i supplement selenium and magnesium and around 32 mg of Iodine. The iodine is use is Lugols 2%. Also look into pokeweed. It has a chemical known as pap-43 and has shown anti herpes abilities. How much you can actually get in your system i dont know. Also as far a zinc, try using a zinc oxide cream. Its usually meant for baby rashes and stuff but ive used it and it works wonders to dry up the herpes.

Sorry slow on the updates. So Olive Leaf & Zinc definitely speeds up healing time, but doesn't appear to really affect regularity. Will still continue though

      Hey there. Best thing to do is to go in and specifically ask for a herpes IgG blood test and a swab if you have any active sores / bumps present. That's the only way to know for certain. Your symptoms do not sound like the typical symptoms one would experience, but, each person experiences this virus differently. Best to get checked before assuming the worst. Best of luck to you!

      Good question. I want to know the answer too. I apply Abreva to the infected area preventively and take multivitamin to boots up immunity. I am not sure how effective my method is but it is better than doing nothing I guess.

      My assumption and ignorance of herpes was oozing puss filled blistering sores, pain and sickness. You get it by sleeping with whores and sketchy people. Boy was I wrong. I know this is long but hopefully some of you can relate. A week ago I woke up to small painless blisters on my penis out of nowhere. Never happened before. No pre-itching, no pre-tingling, no redness, no sick feelings, no pain, no discharge. I hadn’t slept with anyone in over a month, so wtf. The next morning they were gone, with cuts/sores left behind. They didn’t itch or hurt, only as much as a cut would. I left them alone. I went to a doctor and showed him a photo of the blisters (because they were already gone), he said looks like herpes. How could it be? No woman I’ve ever slept with in the past two years has mentioned it before, during or after me. I didn’t have one night stands. I had regular friends with benefits who could tell me. The doctor did a swab. I asked for a blood test and he said there’s no point. He was certain, so I went to another doctor. He looked at the photos and said it doesn’t look like herpes. I was confused. I asked for a blood test. He was hesitant, but I got an IGG. Now in the past couple years I have had some cuts between my buttcheeks. I always chalked it up to yeast or not wiping enough or too much. It always came out of nowhere, no sickness, no brutal pain, no ooozing puss filled blisters. I never went to a doctor about it. It was uncomfortable, but eventually went away after a week or two. I had assumed genital herpes meant penis, and I wasn’t having anal sex. On this very forum when I was doing research waiting for results, someone said I was being ridiculous thinking I have herpes with non-symptoms like these. Well, today I went in for my swab results. I’m still waiting for the IGG test, but the herpes culture came back positive for HSV2 isolated. The doctor is certain the IGG will come back positive. I’m not really sure how to deal with all this. Right now I feel like a leper, like damaged goods, but also if I’ve had this for years and had no idea until now, I also feel like it’s no big deal. Not a single person in the past two years has got it from me to my knowledge or were incredibly lucky to get a version that shows no symptoms. My concern is explaining that to people going forward who have my prior assumptions, and will not want me. One doctor told me I should for legal reasons go back a year and tell everyone I’ve been with. Another doctor said that’s not realistic. I didn’t have a major episode where I can pinpoint infection, so how far back should I go? I don’t have contact info for many of these people now. I’m not sure what to do. I have so much more to say. I look forward to talking to you all, and am happy this forum exists. Thanks for listening.

      Thanks for the reply - I’ll try not to think about it and I’ll update in a couple weeks either way.
