PH Level Control

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

PH Level control is the way to go.

THE STORY:

I've had uncontrollable herpes outbreaks for 18 years...While currently its incurable, I've continued looking for a control to outbreaks.

Originally I went to the doctor and they prescribed Valtrex. Its effect reduced over time and totally stopped working for me after the 5th year.

Unbelievably, in 18 years the pharmaceutical companies have nothing else (Conspiracy?) !

Anyway, over those 18 years I tried everything I could including all the scams. DMSO, Oxygen drops, Olive leaf.. all that crap didn't work at all.

ACV TRIAL:

About 2 years ago I tried Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) during an outbreak with significant success.

I took ACV 3 times a day during outbreak to try to suppress the attack. I got the legions to go in 2 days as opposed to 9 days untreated.

PH LEVEL TRIAL:

I've since learnt that its not the ACV that is having the effect but the change it makes to my PH level.

For the last 6 months I've been trialing Antacids to increase my PH level during outbreaks with very encouraging results.

During an outbreak I take Eno (antacid) twice a day and have noticed that the lesions don't make it to the surface. I can feel them trying.

THE RESULT:

I've just had an unusually massive attack last month with the back of both my legs painfully hypersensitive (usually only one leg) and the usual prodrome genital irritations. I maintained a higher than normal PH level using the Antacids and measuring with personal PH testing Litmus from local pharmacy (Best way to measure is to piss on it).

The lesions didn't make it the surface. Very encouraging.

WHAT I WANT:

I'm very keen to hear from anyone who is using (or can try)  this approach and post the results.

The pharmacies can't afford to help us... so I turn to the people I trust... those with herpes.

ps... I forgot.. the other thing I do is take Lysine and Vit C twice a day. Over time the Lysine seems to toughen the skin.

After having my baby I’m continuously had terrible outbreaks.. one after another.. also got candida outbreaks all around.. what a crap!!! So I started to take ACV, and cut off any acidic food. I think it’s help.. but I’m still stress everyday.. because my symptoms were always mild.. sometimes I didn’t realise that I have an outbreak until it’s creeped..

      Ridiculous comment. They know a lot about herpes. And they know enough to be aware that the virus hides/resides in the neurons, not the blood. It amazes me how ridiculous some of the comments are on this forum. People actually thinking that simply purifying your blood and liver is a cure (or therapy) for herpes. Boy those scientists must be the dumbest people on the planet for them not to have known that [sarcasm]. Give me a friggin break!

      I believe there will be a cure for a gun and I do not want to lose my faith

      What do you think about ahcc? It is used in the treatment of HPV and increases immunity. Can it also prevent hsv? because increasing immunity will reduce recurrences. can it work? sorry for the spelling mistakes because it is not an anthropology

      Bleh, been a little over a month since I posted this and still having the burning pain since April. Will I ever feel normal down below again without taking meds for nerve pain?

      Although I am male, I have nerve pain down below as well. Instead of my leg, it is actually in my scrotum. I contracted this virus last year in December 2017. My initial outbreak was in my throat, nothing down below at all. Test in January confirmed that I had HSV-2; tested looking for IGG antibodies which were at 23. In April, I believe i had a very minor outbreak with just one spot that may have been a blister in my groin. Although there was no pain, I was afraid that it would get worse so I decided to take my valtrex for 5 days (the spot disappeared within 3 days). Two days after I stopped valtrex, the nerve pain came about and was in both of my inner thighs and my scrotum. From that moment on, the nerve pain moved from the thighs and stayed only in my scrotum and has persisted daily ever since.  My nerve pain is constant; not in the sense of 24/7 non stop, but on and off throughout the day, every day. So in essence, I'm in the same boat with you where I don't have any visible symptoms (no redness though in my case), but have the constant burning sensation. I will admit, hearing your story and knowing that this has persisted for you for over 16 years is kind of disheartening to me. I keep telling myself that because I am still new to this virus, my body is still getting use to it and that after the first year one day the nerve pain will stop completely. Now I am not so sure.
