It may sound crazy to hear several institutions testing a tree in India to treat herpes, so here are some links. I can't find all of the original studies I read two years ago. But here's a few that come up today.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/24118020/?i=1&from=Neem herpes

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3767196/

Neem oil and Neem Capsules are the absolute best thing I've tried for my hsv2. It prevents outbreaks from occuring.

Zero adverse side effects in adults. 

More below in comments.

https://www.nap.edu/read/1924/chapter/8#62

Page 61 and 62, Germany testing neem to treat herpes viruses and finding it effective. Used to treat chicken pox. Prevents outbreaks, by protecting the unaffected cells. 

 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9437563?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum

A clip from John Hopkins Research, that found Neem effective at blocking hsv2

Another study I read Neem was tested and compared to acyclovir and found more effective.

To find more studies with actual trial details and results search Azardirachta indica tree and hsv. A lot are in downloadable PDFs, which I'm not posting links for.

New studies being done around the world in Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America.

Do they say anything about if the Neem is equally effective for HSV 1?

Yes, the second link was only studied on hsv1. It does say in the study that hsv2 and hsv1 are so similar in the way they invade a cell, that it's effective against both. 

In one of the other studies I read, it said found effective against all herpes viruses. 

I love the stuff.... It's worked great for me. After one and a half years of constant outbreaks, I've now been outbreak free for 2 years using neem capsules and neem oil.

Is there a regimen that you follow ? For example, number of applications (per week or per day), and strength of the oil that you use - like. e.g.,  do you dilute it?  I read some of the benefits of the plant oil, and it sounds like one could use it on their hair and nails, even polish the furniture :joy:

cheers

LOL...

I started out taking neem capsules (Organic India) two capsules twice a day. And rubbing neem oil (NOW brand) on any place on body with sores and any place on body that ever itched, tingled, etc. at least twice a day. (I have ghsv, so I drop a few drops on toilet paper, smear, and coat skin).

It worked fast, but I kept that regimen up for about two months (even though outbreaks had halted).  

At two months, I cut back capsules taking 5-7 days on, then break for 10-14 days off.

I cut back applying neem oil to once a week before bed. (Oil smells like a garlic Thai peanut sauce). So apply, bed, shower before leaving house.

Thanks for sharing! I started using diluted neem oil throughout the day and a less diluted solution at night just because I can’t stand the smell. I mix it with coconut oil and vanilla essential oil or peppermint oil and it’s bearable for day time. I put it on every couple of hours. 

I haven’t tried the capsules yet just because I have SO MUCH other stuff to finish. 

Ive had back to back outbreaks for 2 months. I just started the fulvic acid and neem oil applications 2-3 weeks ago. I had 2 obs since. The second one healed up and I’m currently on day 3 or so with no signs yet of another. Every time I get an itch, I’m headed to the bathroom to apply the oil just in case.

Yeah, it smells like a garlic Thai peanut sauce to me, I never diluted it, but I don't apply real thick. I just put a few drops on toilet paper and kind of wipe and smear. So it's not too bad, or maybe I just got used to the smell, lol. 

I was having outbreaks on the back of my ear too though. When I apply weekly, my boyfriend calls it his repellent! 

So, it could be worse, ;)

thanks all for replying. So helpful. I started Fulvic acid yesterday, waiting on the Ashwagandi pills. I will get the neem and start a weekly regimen of that too just because it seems to be helpful in many ways. I've been lucky - I got my first OB Jan 2017 and got an OB every 10-12 weeks like clockwork - but always could feel it coming on, and had Valtrex on hand each time. I never got anything more serious than a few bumps that looked and felt like ingrown hairs. But I've not had anything since early March this year and hoping my OBs are fading. 

I'll report back. Thanks again.

Ashwagandha is great for stress. I've had a lot of friends and family members take a good adrenal blend (they almost always contain ashwagandha). They're a great chill pill, with no loopy side effects. 

I do suggest the neem capsules. It's a great hsv suppressant. The neem oil is like a second line of defense.

Hi Feeling Normal Again, thank you for the information.  Have you read up on any of the side effects of neem and the tea that you mentioned in one of your other posts. I wanted to try the neem and tea but I always read side effects before and then I get nervous to take it.

Of course. Neem has no known side effects in adults, but not recommended for children or breast feeding mothers.

Graviola tea does have a study that linked it to Parkinson's. But when I found information done on the study, I wasn't too concerned. It was a very small study done on the island of Guam, where a main staple of their diet is soursop fruit. 

With as severe as my symptoms were, I thought it was worth the risk for me to try it. 

I also scoured reviews on several sites (from sale sites like Amazon to medication information and review sites like Webmd, and several more) looking for anyone who reported negative effects and found none.

I first ordered one bag just to give it a try, the results were so significant. I did cut back to one cup a week after symptoms subsided. I thought one or two a cups a week will probably not be enough to cause side effects. The Parkinson's study was done on an island where they consume a lot of Soursop over very long periods of time.

But to me the study done would be like doing a study in Japan and linking to the consumption of fish, or pineapples in Hawaii. ;)

Another way I look at the natural herbs, fruits, teas, vitamins, and supplements, their possible side effects list is usually very short;  0-5 reported on almost everything I take.

But I looked up valtrex and acyclovir, and they each have at least ten pages of possible side effects. I actually took screenshots of all of them, lol.

One of those studies above goes into how they're finding the human body's reception is much better of natural treatments than it is of synthetic prescriptions.

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.

      Oral was involved too....
