chronic constipation

Recommended Posts

jojo3377

I have had first Outbreak for 10 days.  My bowels have totally stopped working - it doesn't matter how much fibre, veg smoothies, laxatives or anything that I use - the muscles that make faeces come out - just don't work.   does any one have any advice on what to do or if this clears up? nb the stools are soft so that side is not a a problem. thanks

Same problem! And if you Google it, many people experience the same. It's my problem number 1 with ghsv. I lost few kilos because of that and it effects the immune system badly.. Sometimes it effects my stomach and I get diarrhea instead. My advice is eat nutrition food with less fiber because this way you can have enough calories and nutrients but less stuff for filling your bowels. I eat full fat yogurt, drink kefir, eat bananas, cooked potatoes with butter, fish or chicken meat. I always had high fiber diet, but in this case it would hurt more than help. For constipation I use stool softeners and smooth move tea. I was also recommended triphala medicine to detox in one inet discussion. I got that advice from a man who suffer with GI issues due to ghsv for more than year. Triphala was recommended by GI specialist he visited. Also, that GI specialist admits the issues are due to hsv playing with nerves. I hope it's reversible. Good luck. I am much better now than in the beginning (I have ghsv for 5months), but still kind of celebrating when I go to washroom :-) sorry, but you know what I mean....

could try an aloe vera drink.    Blend some aloe gel with a banana (in water).   If ya needed some type of measurement then 2 heaping TBS of Aloe gel.   ...Aloe has a bunch of beneficial properties but can leech out potassium, which is why the banana is important (as well as taste).  To name some of them:
-Aloe is a restorative so it heals any damaged tissue.
-Aloe is anti-inflammatory
-Anti-viral
-a laxative, depending on how much is taken.

But yeah, sacral nerves relate/innervate to/with the Large Intestine and genitalia.

You can pick up some an aloe vera plant from any plant nursery.

Light exercise like walking, lots of water, and metamucil should help. (Not all fiber is effective)

      Have sex  with at least one of you wearing clothes + a condom  next time, if you really want to protect him.

      All negative, Except for hepatitis B which is something you're vaccinated (They give you antibodies) against in the military. Before, I go through the trouble of re cropping another damn picture for you. I'd like to ask what your response will be if I show you the results and they're all negative?

      Universities receive most of their  funding from Pharma companies. Scientific studies aren't cheap, Pharmaceutical companies aren't going to fund research on food supplements when there's no pay off for them. It's naive to  think big businesses would fund research that'd directly decrease profit.  Then there's the possibility of the pharmaceutical companies bribing the government agencies from genuine health research, to keep themselves in business. https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/04/big-pharma-pays-universities-for-most-medical-research-in-u-s-today/   Also, No one outside of the research community has the resources/contacts to prove they're cured. Even if they scored a negative on a western blot test/IGg, scrutinizers would just claim the virus was dormant or they never had it at all. Other than blood test, There is no easily accessible method to determine whether or not the virus is completely eradicated from your body.
