Adding supplements has not been shown clinically to have an impact on outbreak frequency or severity.  

That doesn't mean if you have a nutritional deficiencies that it doesn't.  But for the majority of people who get Al the nutrients they need from food supplements don't seem to have an effect and in general better to save your money.  

Also Just because it doesn't work across the general population doesn't mean your individual results should be discounted.  

Being health is good but I would steer more towards a healthy diet of veggies, fruit, grains and lean protein.

Happybee,  atart with good general health, and do some reasearch.  Iv had this 6months so im not an expert but also i have read 100s of articles.  

Things that help

1) antivirals, still the best at reducing frequency and duration of occurances 

2) lysine, PROVEN to help reduce duration and recurrences.

3) olive leaf extract, cheap, no side effects, very good results in some people

4)  oregano oil, harder to use, a bit more expensive but very good results in some people.

Other oral sups and vita

Garlick, st. Johns wort, eccinacia, selenium, vit b,c,d, 


Lemon balm- PROVEN to help reduces ob and speed up healing.

Zinc oxide- same as above.

I use all of the above.

Other things with good results but i havent tried

Bee pollen

Baby goat milk, i forget what its called 

Laurin, coconut extract


Colladeral silver

thc oil

Read up on these, and remember there is no cure, no matter what people claim

do you have any link that proves this? 

I don't think lysine does that much IMO. I was taking 2000mg a day. ( I have type 2)

"Dietary changes: Lysine is an amino acid that seems to inhibit the virus. ... Unfortunately, using lysine does not usually work for genital herpes. As an alternative, you can try taking monolaurin, a nontoxic, antiviral supplement made from lauric acid (a fatty acid found in breast milk) and glycerin"  :from dr Weil

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      Maybe I should up my intake of olive leaf?

      I'm pretty sure I have ghsv1 but it's not confirmed as I test negative via igg blood test but I probably would not fully disclose even if I had 100% proof. Right now I have disclosed that I think I may have had a coldsore and that's it. Turns out the two girls I've disclosed that to said they get coldsores too so it's a non issue. Hsv1 is a little bit different though in terms of prevalence. If I were in your position (assuming you have hsv2) and took antivirals I probably would not feel the need to disclose during hookups. However in a long term relationship I think it's important. When I disclosed that I may have had a cold sore in the past to a girl I was about to get intimate with she disclosed that she had an oral coldsore before and was positive for hepatitis B. I'm glad she disclosed the hep B because I wanted to make sure I had hep b titers. If the same girl disclosed she had hsv2 I would just make sure she's taking antivirals and wear a condom.
