Olive Leaf, Oil of Oregano and Outbreaks

Recommended Posts

Arrowhead

Hello Community, 

A bit of an update.  I've had HSV2 now for over 3 months now (at least).  I had 3 mild outbreaks on my penis in the first 5 weeks. 

I am on suppressive antiviral 800 mg a day.  I have also been taking tons of supplements to increase the effectiveness of my immune system.  I take lysine, zinc, garlic, selenium, St. Johns wort, echinaccia vitamin b,c and d.  I also take astregula, and elderberry in my smoothy.  I'm about to add cilantro to rid my body of heavy metals . Topically, I apply a mix of coconut oil and lemon balm oil to both my penis and my anus area, it provides both relief and hopefully an active fighter if I get a break out. I've slowly increased Olive Leaf Extract from 750 mg to 2500 mg/day with no side effects. 

 I plan to also begin to apply Oil of Oregano both topically and orally, along with the cilantro beginning after Thanksgiving when i can get on a dedicated diet of "Less Shit", haha.  Finally my groin, and lips, and eyes, and chafe, and anal itchiness, have gone away. Ive been BREAK OUT FREE for 2 months now.  This is so much better than the first 5 weeks.  I feel that most everything Im taking is good for me or at least is NOT harmful (with maybe the exception of the antiviral meds).  Id like to stop taking the anti viral meds, but not while Im having this success. 

Im thinking with a powerful oral regime of OLE and OOO, along with the vitamins and minerals.  This should kick any HSV 2 ass that is floating around in my system.  Along with the Topical defense of Coconut oil, Lemon balm oil and Oil of Oregano mix for fighting on another front.  I plan on continuing the anti viral until I get another out break, then maybe I will try weening off of those but again still hesitant to get off of the meds when I'm having success. 

Please feel free to add any comments.  Any thoughts, or similar success and failures.  Im also happy to share any info on what I take and how I take it.  I am not a medical student or Dr, but I am a science teacher by trade so I,ve done a lot of research on these topics, and I am pretty good at separating the "BS" from legit science and studies. I really wish there was a place to set up studies on all of these wonderful natural remedies that fight HSV.

Another month Break out free (I think).

So I added the Oil of Oregano both topically and orally.  I started early in mid Nov (10th).  I take 3 Oil Of Oregano pills a day along with mainly the 2500/mg a day of Oilive Leaf and the supplements and Vitamins listed above.  All this along with the antiviral.  3 MONTHS BREAK OUT FREE!!!  I did encounter a small problem.  I may have gone overboard on the topical Oil Of Oregano (OOO).  I mixed it with Coconut oil and Lemon balm, only I made it very strong % of OOO.  I think this caused irritation.  My penis got a couple little red and irritated spots, along with some dry skin and itching.  I thought it was an outbreak (still only 90% sure it isnt), but it never had bumps, blisters, or sores.  Only redness and dry skin.  I just started to put anti fungal/hydrocortizone on it. I know this would be bad for HSV2 out breaks but I dont think thats what it is.  Any thoughts on this???  I will keep updating monthly but as of now I plan on staying OB free!

Be careful with the oils on your penis. 

I did similar things with really bad results later. When you start irritating your skin there, it gets easier to also get herpes there. Once the herpes starts coming at the tip of your penis also, it is really hard to get rid of this condition. I have still problems now for about 6 Months.  Constantl redness, pain and sometimes itchyness but no blisters.

Hi

The best thing on obs when they come it's cannabis oil. It litteraly stop obs and have a long time effect. Such a long that l have no obs for one year.

As internal treatment,  l test many natural stuffs but what it was the best for me is mother tincture of elderberry. Home made. So the concentration of elderberry was higher. 

I don't tell more. If you want more . Just ask ;)

Cool! Do just rub on the cannabis oil or take for internal use too? How can I get access to some?

doh!

Everyone and their dog is making some sort of cannabis product in my 'hood it seems and it's widely advertised on local facebook groups.
@Vinci, neat/concentrate or mixed with, say, coconut oil? I have the latter in my fridge from my brother who used it for skin cancers.

Vinci-  the cannabis oil angle sounds interesting thanks for sharing. Were you getting outbreaks prior to using the cannabis oil, if so how often? I wonder what the clinical reason is for the cannabis oil helping.  I wonder if it's fighting the hsv-2, or it's boosting your immune response. I have been mixing the oils with coconut oils because it also helps with chafing. I will keep cannabis oil in mind.

UPDATE.

Another month break out free!  Thats 4 months.  Im happy with this.  I did scale back the topical oils on my penis.  I have a condition called BXO, which is basically sclerosis  on  my penis.  It makes my skin more sensitive, and the oils were drying me out, and making my penis pink and sore, inflamed. I still use the oils (OOO, lemon balm, and coconut oil mix) on my anal area, lower back and testicles.  As far as predome  symptoms, I still get itchiness in areas that goes away in hours usually.  Again my oral reg is...

Anti Viral 400mg twice daily 

Olive Leaf 2500 mg/day

Oil of Oregano (NOW brand) 3 softgels/day

Lysine-  2000mg/day

Zinc- 100mg/day

Selenium- 400mcg/day

St. Johns wort- 600mg/day

Garlic 4000/mg/day

Echinacea- 800 mg/day

Vita- B,C,D

I also make a "Power Smoothie"  Which has tons of natural herbs and supps in it.

 

Again, please try this if youd like, add something.  Share what is working, not working...  So far, the only legit contribution to this post has been the cannabis oil.  Im thinking this may be better than the coconut oil for a base for the other oils.  However the Coconut oil has other benefits as well for the skin.  I experienced a full 5-6 weeks of chaife in the anal area after I contacted HSV2, the coconut oil was the ONLY thing that got rid of it. GOOD LUCK!

Anti viral: valtrex?

You tried it just with the antiviral? Be interesting to see which is most effective - valtrex or herbals. Anti viral I'd say. 

For me Valtrex once a day, twice if I ruined the immune system with alcohol keeps it at bay.

I take Acyclovir 400mg twice a day.  No I have not tried just 100% natural remedies.  I added the  herbs and supps because I have read several studies that claim the fewer outbreaks you have your first year, the better you will be in the long run; meaning less outbreaks.  So, I'm taking everything possible to keep them from coming back.  Eventually I would like to either go with just the antivirals or just the natural remedies, however because I'm having success, I'm not going to change my regiment until I have an outbreak.

Tayelle,  if you read about Herpes on any of the trusted online medical sites. they all claim that outbreaks decrease after the first year.  Many of them also claim that the intensity is less severe.  Mayo, family dr, livestrong, etc.

Just another update...

5 months break out free.  I do get more pimple like blemishes on my thighs and butt region.  But still no outbreak!  Awesome.  Almost 100% off of topical oils, just the supplements and antivirals.

I have just finished my anti viral meds after my first outbreak and being diagnosed last week, and all symptoms have pretty much gone away.  I am leaving for Mexico today and a little worried that I could have another outbreak on my vacation, will be there 9 days.  I am thinking I can get the meds down there?  Anybody know this for sure?

Monthly update.

Now 6 months of no break outs.  Ive reduced my intake of the herbs, and no longer using any topical oils.  I do use the zinc ointment .if I feel chafe or predome symptoms.  Im still taking all of the oral supplements, but drastically reduced them because they were getting hard on my stomach.  I now take about half the amounts, which is good because I wanted to slowly ween off of everything.  I still take the Acyclovir 400mg, twice a day.

So lets recap what Ive learned after 6 months.

I had my first breakout 7.5 months ago. (Mild HSV2 break out on penis)

My 1st 6 weeks I had 3 break outs, back-to-back-to-back, maybe 2-5 days between.

Dr thought suppression daily might be needed, thus the Acyclovir. (Also started all the above herbs and topical oils)

Other symptoms to my body persisted, chafe butt, pimples. slowly went away over next 4 weeks.

My thought at this point was to bombard the hell out of the virus and hope my first year was mild and breakout free. Reading that the less severe and less frequent the out breaks are the first year USUALLY, the less severe they are for the rest of ones life.  

So Id have to say this protocol has been VERY successful  as I have had no out breaks at all.  Im sure it is the anti-viral doing its thing, but Id like to say the herbs are helping. 

I also have unprotected sex with my girlfriend daily and she has had nothing as well.  Keep in mind she may already have this virus?? we dont know yet.

I can also say that if I had to rate my immune system on a scale of 1-10 id give me a 3.  I have Lymphoma.  My lifestyle is also poor, I work 2 jobs, so about 70/hrs a week, raise 3 teenage children, and drink alcohol and smoke weed.  so not much rest.  So Im not one to think a night of partying leads to out breaks.

I have experienced more pimples on my thigh and butt region, also my scalp.  Im not sure if these are some type of outbreak, I read "probably not", but I didnt seem to get them before i was exposed. 

So there you have it, a CURE?  Nope.  But I would say pretty good results.  Going from a person that apparently couldnt shake the virus, to a person with no outbreaks for 6 months, I will take it.  I will continue to update, I hope this helps someone that may be looking for ways to reduce out breaks, or if your lucky, get rid of them all together

I always want people to remember that what works for one person may not work for the next, you have to mix and match herbal products that will work for you! Now for me I've had herpes for about 6 years and have done nothing about it, I figured if I just ignored it it would go away (lol) I only would have an OB during my period, I never experienced anything other than INTENSE itching before the sore would pop out, after 6 years of dealing with that I decided to look on the internet for help with the itching and ended up finding all kinds of info on using herbal remedies to relieve symptoms and possibly killing the herpes virus altogether! I was all for that because I believe there's a cure for everything, even herpes!! After many, many nights of research on the internet I decided to try Oil of Oregano, Olive Leaf Extract and Colloidal Silver. What a god send so far!! My last OB lasted only 2 days as opposed to 2 weeks! On a scale of 0-10, 0 being no itch whatsoever to 10 being unbearable itching my itch this OB was a 2, so very slight but as soon as I felt it I upped my intake of both the Oil of Oregano and Olive leaf. No itch after 2 days and the sore was gone!!! I truly believe that this is going to be the future of herpes care, you can never go wrong with anything natural! I say try it, find what works for you and try it!!

I’ve done a lot of research. I was diagnosed last week and just started today. Try to stop drinking for a month, eat better for a month (vegetables and fruits, try to cut out meat, eat fish if you need meat). Cut down on smoking as much as you can as it can weaken your immune system. HSV is a mucus, it typically hides in the lower spine. Rub two drops of oregano oil mixed with coconut oil on your spine (lower back, top of you butt crack and up a few inches). And idk what the pills do for HSV, but mix two drops with a little bit of Virgin cold pressed olive oil and drop it under your tongue for at least 30 seconds. Do this twice a day. Try to get sunlight for 30 mins at least 3 times a week for direct vitamin D. I really hope this method helps someone. 

 

***disclaimer: this MAY cause a lot of outbreaks as the HSV will try to fight back against the Oregano Oil. That is completely normal.

@Arrowhead that sounds like a great blend of vitamins/herbs. Have you gotten retested with a pcr or western blot? I wouldn’t be surprised if you have killed the virus!! If you do get retested please let us know your results. Would be amazing to have a testimony for a natural way to kill this thing...

      Once a person get infected with herpes, the very first NATURAL CURE he try to find on is OLIVE LEAF EXTREACT as if within few days it gonna kill virus n turn reports in negative. Moreover human gets so much hasty that they don't even apply a single thought to it n just quickly run to buy it.
      so many products come by in store proclaim to have 30 percent oleuropein in there olive leaf extract or some even more than it, making it sound like a voo do magic going on, but in reality all making fool ( as I personally believe by reading some research)
      just tell me one question in layman terms
      can u drive a car without brakes?
      can u extract something what is meant to be inseparably in that leaf? Yes in this case oleuropein content can't be seperated from leaf since it's the light flavour juice thats attached within leaf, which gives its taste as u chew it in mouth.
      and many person have tried to seperate oleuropein only from leaf but failed.
      So how this high oleuropein percentage picture comes in picture, since it's just dried leaf tincture in form of vegetable capsules?
      and I have talked to many herbal n Ayurveda specialist, which gave me two thumb rules when it comes to reap benefits from nature
      1 always take leaf or any part of plant DIRECT as far as possible since it gives 100 percent delivery of that component, if not possible than in hot water or dried form
      2 always gives a minimum gap of 15 mins between two herbs, don't take two or more herbs in one shot unless it's confirmed that taken in combined manner it give more positive results like 
      misture of below ingredients in dry form in 1/3rd form give birth to a great potion known as "TRIPHALA"
      Amla – Emblica officinalis – Indian gooseberry Haritaki – Terminalia chebula – Chebulic Myrobalan Vibhitaki – Terminalia bellirica – Belleric Myrobalan Coming back to topic i ask all humans infected by H and taking path of nature herbs to heel
      "IS EATING OLIVE LEAF DIRECTLY IS MORE BENEFICIAL OR RATHER TAKING IT IN DRIED TINCTURE CAPSULE FORM WITH LABEL OF HIGH oleuropein STRENGTH, OF WHICH THERE NO RECORDS TO SUPPORT OR METHOD OF HOW THEY EXTRACT THAT HIGH oleuropein?"
      kindly suggest n lead this olive therapy to right way, so others reap benefits of it to fullest?
