Just Google Fasting and Immune System.  There are many articles about fasting for 3 days to reset or regenerate your immune system.

I try to do intermittent fasting where I eat between an 8-10 hour window daily.  This has more to do with maintaining my weight and working out though. Personally I can’t go 3 days without food as I would be very cranky lol.

@VladimirM Has fasting helped you personally? If so, how long have you been doing it and how much less frequent are your symptoms/outbreaks?

Yes, fasting helps me. Once I accidentally skipped breakfast and all symptoms disappeared. You must know that o.b. it's not my biggest problem. Confusion and dizziness and flu like symptoms and Itching  are my biggest problem. So that symptoms were corrected. For o.b. I really do not know.

Be sure that I soften the true state of mater. Another case for which I know who is infected with the same strain of the virus is completely lost. He was no longer able to recognize anything in his surroundings. Forgetfulness-confusion 100%. I'm not that bad but I'm not far away also ..

What do you mean about confusion and dizziness?

It's all the same symptom, but I use more words to describe it. forgetfulness, cofusion, dizziness, fuzzines, loss of short-term memory. All these symptoms are due to the immune system reaction. As I learned in the hard way. For the time being, zinc oxide is the best help. Complete oblivion is the worst thing that this strain of herpes virus can do that I am able to testify This strain of herpes virus I picked up in West Africa.

Prolonged calorie reduction actually improves healthspan and lifespan. The reason is that it literally effects which genes are expressed. HSV is a DNA virus. It's very possible that cells regulate themselves differently in a fasted state.

      Coming back to report that after vaccinations in May and July, today I have one vesicle. Called the doctor and will report back later. Slightly pessimistic at this point.

      I think I need to treat this as an ocd thought (that I've got herpes) and not check myself compulsively, not seek constant reassurance from doctors and the internet, just try and forget about it. Re disclosure, I would tell future partners that i could have hsv but I don't know, all the visual examinations and tests I've had have come back negative but there's still a possibility that i have herpes. Then they can decide whether to take the risk. I always assume someone is positive for everything unless there are tests to prove otherwise. I don't do casual relationships so always get a full sexual health screening with my new partner so we can both be safe. But they could have herpes and not know as it's not routinely checked for. It's a risk for all parties involved. I spoke to herpes.org.uk helpline and Marion told me that blood tests are routinely bringing up false positives/negatives and that having the virus doesn't predict when and where you're going to have an ob. I therefore wouldn't trust the result of the test and would be repeatedly getting tested, as I did when my hiv ocd was really bad. That was a hugely stressful and anxious time and I don't want to go through that again!! Especially for a virus that can't kill you!! So I think I'm going to have to live with the uncertainty of having herpes obs and avoid sexual contact whenever I feel sore down below if/when I'm in a relationship.  Being on this forum is just exacerbating my Ocd, so I think that I should stop posting as it's reassurance-seeking. Wishing you all the best and thank you all for your help, advice and support. Remember - it's just a virus that billions of people have and doesn't make us dirty or unworthy of love or a good life. Stay safe and well xx

      And I’ll help you up until the second coming. I think this is an unhealthy dose of imaginitis as far as herpes is concerned. Wouldn’t you agree?
    • WilsoInAus
      Yes man that’s correct. I mean we don’t really want more people in the delusional room with mirrors that see nothing, do we?
    • WilsoInAus
      There’s nothing visually or in what you describe that is suggestive of herpes. See your doctor if you have concerns, there’s plenty of things on the list of possibilities here.
