Denying The Correlation HSV-2 and Nerve Damage

 
The internet helps us everyday in many different ways. Most recently bringing unprecedented awareness of ALS, a disease that destroys the lives of thousands of Americans each year. I believe all ailments, diseases or viruses that compromise quality of any human beings life should garner the same attention in hope of ending misery and suffering. However, there is a particular virus that nearly everyone is aware of that is stigmatized in America more so than in Europe that almost no one seems to want to talk about openly and that virus is herpes. Specifically HSV-2 commonly known as genital herpes.

1 out 6 people ages 14-49 are believed to be infected with HSV-2 or roughly 536 million people worldwide. You have most likely been made aware of the basic symptoms of HSV-2 but here is a much more accurate list of symptoms starting with sensitivity to light (often the first symptom can occur less than 24hr after infection), burning or tingling feeling at the sight of infection on the genitals, burning feeling when urinating or urine feels hotter during urination, painful blistery outbreak (appears 1-2 weeks after infection blisters will break leaving open sores that will reform blisters accompanied with yellow discharge heals in approx. 1-3 weeks), flu like symptoms (day of initial outbreak can last for 1-2 weeks), headache (reoccurring and becoming more frequent after infection), thigh pain or tenderness (persists beyond flu like symptoms reoccurring throughout hosts life), buttock pain or tenderness (persists beyond flu like symptoms reoccurring throughout hosts life) , difficulty passing stool or feeling that your bowels are not completely empty after passing stool (persists throughout hosts life, lower back pain (occurs during the initial outbreak lasts throughout hosts life), pins and needles in extremities especially when standing or laying for extended periods. Many foods and liquids you enjoy will act as triggers for HSV-2 outbreaks and headache. Alcohol is a known outbreak trigger yet alcohol intolerance developed in those infected with HSV-2 along with chronic headache. Let me be clear that HSV-2 is not directly causing this, but rather the damage HSV-2 does to the nerves causes a domino effect. 

Now you may be familiar with most of these symptoms or perhaps only a few, but let's slow down for a moment and ask, why? We know that after initial infection, the virus enters the nerve roots and spreads to the sensory nerve ganglia which serves as the home base for the virus. The ganglia are the nerve junctions which nerves from different parts of the body come together. For the genital area, the ganglia are adjacent to the spinal cord in the lower back. So, already we have a factual connection between HSV-2, your nerves, your spinal cord and your lower back. Yet, the stigma focuses solely on those pesky painful genital sores that come and go and those other symptoms namely lower back pain and nerve damage are dismissed, forgotten or not even acknowledged. Contrary to popular belief there is no "latency period" once you are infected. The virus is alive and awake every moment of your life reeking havoc methodically on your nerves. It borders the realm of sheer cruelty to deny the correlation between nerve damage and HSV-2. The virus enters into the nerves and does severe irreversible damage over time yet people are led to believe that the herpes virus is just a pesky epidermal menace rather than the internal terrorist it actually is. Many are also led to believe that nerve damage experienced coincidently post HSV-2 infection is a direct result of your own incompetence and not the virus.

I urge anyone who suspects they are infected with HSV-2 to go to a virologist and get tested. I urge those already infected to stand strong and fight for the truth to be told about the dangers of HSV-2. So little is being done about the herpes virus while pharmaceutical companies and doctors are making millions off the misrepresentation of what this virus is actually doing to your body. I regularly witness once healthy men and woman suffering with HSV-2 struggle with herniated discs in their spine, compressed nerves, chronic headache, sudden headache after alcohol consumption, pain and numbness in their extremities all occurring within 1-2 years after initial infection. Many of these people have been dealing with these debilitating effects due to HSV-2 for many years left hopeless and struggling with the psychological effects this cash cow of a virus is doing to millions too ashamed to speak up for themselves.

Physical therapy does very little for these people as the virus never stops doing damage to the nerves in the body. Just because your genital sores are not visible or outbreaks are seldom does not change the fact there is a virus doing terrible things inside of your body.

Stand up for the truth about herpes and bring attention to this virus. Enough with the social stigma. This is a debilitating virus and the world needs to know.

I urge everyone to deny their doctors prescription meds for herpes. Herpes is a huge money maker and it's time to standup for truth. If your only concern is reducing outbreaks here is a homeopathic regime that will work take the following every morning before breakfast or your first meal.

1000mg L-lysine 
25mg Aloe Vera soft gel 
Oil of oregano four drops 
Reishi extract liquid form 1mL

Take the following in the evening or before dinner

25mg Aloe Vera soft gel
Oil of oregano four drops
Reishi extract liquid 1mL

I have the utmost respect for doctors and all those who dispose of the ego and devote their lives to the well being of strangers. Taking knowledge earned and gained to improve the lives of others is heroic and fundamental in a progressive and peaceful society. However, there are too many that willfully cause harm to others for personal gain by not disclosing the truth and it is time to dig these cancerous moles out from society and bring their thrones crashing to the ground. 

Please, spread the truth about herpes it's not just a reoccurring blemish on your genitals it's a debilitating virus that terrorizes the body more so than the world and general public are led to believe. Develop a strong voice and destroy the stigma.
I found this on another forum. It describes many of my chronic symptoms perfectly. I included the suppressive supplement protocol although I can't speak for its efficacy- I haven't tried it. I'm considering stopping antivirals, but for those with HSV2- glutamine is more effective than lysine.

Aloe Vera actually contains growth factors for repairing tissues.

Reishi is an immune/heart tonic.

But if this is all about nerves then where are the nervine herbs?  Nervines are herbs that target nerves, settle/cool them and some help regenerate nervous tissue.

I don't know who posted that. I found it on another forum. It helps being able to read my symptoms written by another person experiencing them. I guess those are the supplements they take. I take SJW 300mg 3 x a day. B12 1000mcg, turmeric w/curcumin 900mg 2 x a day. And sometimes I take monolaurin. I've also tried adding 500mg glutamine 2 x a day on an empty stomach, but it makes me nauseous.

Do you notice any extra hair shedding from the SJW?

It's funny you ask that- my hair looked thin today. I thought (hope) it was just parted weirdly and then I remembered reading acyclovir reviews that mentioned hair loss as a side effect. It never occurred to me that SJW would cause that. Crap.

I've only been taking it since the end of July. It's a 900mg tablet that I was taking half daily. I feel like it may be making me shed more. I'm going to cut back to 900mg 2x week and see what happens.

I can't cut back! I need the nerve support. Whatever, I'll wear a wig. I've always wanted to try one anyways. Less time getting ready in the morning!

I read that niacin can help with shedding as well as skin health. If you can stand adding another pill to your regimen, it may help with shedding caused by SJW. Biotin is good hair vitamin too but can cause acne.

Is any of this fact checked? The virus destroys nerve cells? I think it does during ob. Hell if I know

An estimated 20 million people in the United States have some form of peripheral neuropathy, a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system — the vast communications network that transmits information between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and every other part of the body

Infections can cause peripheral neuropathy. Viruses and bacteria that can attack nerve tissues include herpes varicellazoster (shingles), Epstein-Barr virus, West Nile virus, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex members of the large family of human herpes viruses. These viruses can severely damage sensory nerves, causing attacks of sharp, lightning-like pain.

Well this is scary

Yes, I agree. The article gives a comprehensive list of types of damage and resulting symptoms.

Yah i dunno about all that. Near everyone has hsv1 and herpes zoster as chicken pox/shingles in their body; the later being not speak ganglia as well.  Yet vast majority aren’t running around w peripheral neuropathy.  I’d look for another cause than hsv2

      Yeah, I understand what you mean.  Still, if it comes to market, it's possible that some people will want to use it as a suppressive, i.e. every day for years.  So potential toxicities might end up building up.  so I think they have to be cautious about that.   A lot of people say they wouldn't mind side effects etc. but if you end up blowing up your kidneys with some herpes meds, then it won't be much fun. Still, they did lift the suspension in the immune compromised, and even fast tracked the testing, so it could be approved after this phase 2 (potentially).  And they may go back to testing in healthy people as well.   Meanwhile, Maruho will be testing amenalief in healthy people in the US in the not to distant future. The near future looks bright for improved herpes meds.  These drugs might end up being a bridge while we wait for the FHC cure/functional cure.  I'm hopeful.

      for most people the virus gets easier over time, so if your just diagnosed and start in with all the natural stuff, of course you think it's working, but it's more than likely just your natural experience with the virus...not to be a debbie downer, just saying.
    • Kurdt01
      Do you have periods of say a few months where it's ok and then periods where it's off the charts and uncontrollable no matter what you do? Thats how mine is. It's always with me but there are periods where it's better than others....some months are ok, some are just relentless herpes....no rhyme or reason...it's never great no matter what.

      Denavir never did a good job blocking much for me and my derm said this is the norm. my next step is to do a few other blood checks to make sure I’m not destroying my insides and also add in tens which has been shown to reduce shingles outbreaks to hopefully deactivate as much of the virus as possible. Targeting lower back and thighs for this  disclaimer is that I’ve had no positive tests from wb igg culture or dna pcr so going off of visual diagnosis with md and fact I never responded to fungal and bacterial treatments over the course of a year . 
    • Kurdt01
      Yeah I'd love to get a line on somewhere cheaper to get this. There has to be somewhere you'd think...I"m anxious to try it with Valtrex.
