Food advice

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm just recovering from my first outbreak and I really want to try everything in my power to prevent another. I'm a little worried because I eat a really healthy vegan diet which I can't compromise on, but there are so many foods that I eat that are apparently a no go. I really want to stay healthy as it's a passion of mine plus key to preventing a breakout.  Did any of you experiment with food and found that you can eat foods that you are not meant to?

Thanks

B vitamins are really important 

Hi

I take B vitamins anyway because I eat a vegan diet.

Thanks

Feeling Normal Again

Being a health freak didn't prevent my outbreaks. I ate only gmo-free, organic, vegetarian diet, and worked out an hour daily.

Extremely healthy lifestyle, and I still had constant outbreaks and other "not so typical" symptoms. The only thing I've found that prevents outbreaks naturally is Neem Capsules and Neem oil.

I prefer Organic India Capsules and NOW Neem oil. 

I do one week on and two weeks off on the Capsules and oil once a week before bed. 

If having an outbreak when first using, use both twice daily. If I ever feel tingly sensation, I apply oil immediately, and sores never surface.

Outbreak free for two years using neem.

Speaking of diet, extra weight sure can cause some problems so any diet knowledge will be useful, thank you. My mother’s BG is very high sometimes. It can rise up to 25 mmol/L so having a very straight diet is necessary. I will definitely show her this videos. She is 66 already almost 5ft and 15th 41bs. She is trying to keep it more vegan and she reduced eating anything that can be sweet even sucrose is not allowed because even tho it’s less harmful it’s still sugar. In order to lose some extra weight, she started using appetite suppressors and it works for now. I think she won’t be using it after she loses some and BG will be easier.

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
