Lysine

Recommended Posts

Looking for results people have had using Lysine for HSV-2.  Also dosage recommendations.  I'm a 190-200 lb male, thinking 2000mg/day, half in the morning and the other half in the evening.  

I've been having OBs since 2011, usually about 1 a month.  Hoping to at least cut the OBs in half.

You will need to review the information yourself, but I have have a couple of problems surrounding lysine.

First there is no evidence that arginine contributes to an increased outbreak frequency. Once I learnt that, it was enough for me to stop using lysine. The other issue is that the correct intake of arginine is necessary for correct body function for an increasingly identified number of systems, such as your heart! Emerging research suggests there are benefits to increasing 

Even if you were to believe that arginine was an issue, in most diets there is already a surplus of lysine. The average intake of arginine is about 5g a day, the average intake of lysine is 20g a day. What would 2g extra of lysine actually do is a question worth considering.

i did that and it helped me with nerve damage . stop taking it when feel better . off and on it . probably same thing as expensive valtrex but works . lol.  i'd use that and  turmeric powder sprinted on food. make golden milk .  now i use a couple brands of bee propolis . sweet as.    olive leaf is supposed to be good . i found some good lysine with it in it but costs more than bug bottle from nature store ..  horse pills .lol.  only worked for me doing like 1000 in morning 1000 at night .   then only do it when eating bad food or drinking to much .  now i just eat foods that don't have additives .. makes huge difference. more tea , coffee and water now .  eating meat veggie fruits .  now i can cheat again , sweets go for real desserts . pies , cakes you make. brownies .  store cakes all ready made are full of extra gunk . ii . tool me years to finally do it . feel better , stomach way better . used to blow up non stop .  salt pepper spices . can't go wrong .  dp that ya wont need anything , haha .

This treatment should be on an empty stomach, like in between meals for best results.

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
