Ok so probably not the first thread about this.

I just wanna know if anyone is taking this for hsv and if yes how many grams per day and have you been able to tell if it might have helped you?

I do take a gram, but I also take B complex, DHEA, magnesium oil rubbed on me, BHT dissolved in oil, turmeric, fulvic acid, St John's Wort, whole vitamins. Blitz protocol shakes and I stay alkaline unless under stress.  Dr. Berg says people under  stress will be too alkaline) I can say one thing though, if I don't sleep I will get in trouble!! I make myself get 8 hrs sleep.

    I think you might already know, but checkout glutamine. 

    "Mice treated with glutamine also had higher numbers of HSV-specific IFN-γ–producing CD8 T cells in latently infected ganglia. Thus, glutamine may enhance the IFN-γ–associated immune response and reduce the rate of reactivation of latent virus infection."

    Name of study: Glutamine supplementation suppresses herpes simplexvirus reactivation, 2017

time to go

Hi, I have the blitz shakes protocal. I haven't started it. Was wondering how it worked for you @Quest . Do you follow exactly as instructed. What can I expect once I start. Makes it seem like you will have a lot of ob until complete. Did you continue to drink the shakes even after the first 21 days?

Yes, I take glutamine (5gms a day at bedtime). My own experience it that it does seem to reduce the number of breakouts.

We are not mice. We usually have plenty of glutamine from our diet.

I tried it for several months and didn't notice the smallest difference.

Anyway, it is cheap and harmless (unless you go way above the usual dosages), so go ahead.

I started taking glutamine as well not too long ago, about 5mg a day but haven't noticed much but I also haven't had a genital break for a couple of months now, but I did have an oral outbreak about 3 weeks ago.  I get about 1-2 oral outbreaks every year, had it since I was a child.  But besides that I think what really works for me is just maintaining a healthy diet, exercise and good sleep.  I don't eat any processed foods, rarely drink alcohol or eat sweets and try to get to the gym like 3-4 times a week.  I've pretty much eliminated all of the supplements I was on and only take 4000mg of AHCC (an immune booster), red marine algae, fulvic acid and the glutamine. @Quest

Great job! 

If you take 2 grams of glutamine it will up your human growth hormone on an empty stomach! Did you mean 5 mg or 5 G?

I am taking two grams on an empty stomach because it also increases human growth hormone if you take 2 grams

      yes, get IGG testing ASAP, but be prepared for it to come back negative this first time if it is your first infection. A swab would be better if you have fresh blisters.  If they are already healed, and if its your first infection, be prepared for another subsequent OB (I'm sorry to tell you) coming soon after the first.. You can get swabbed at that one then.  Stay strong.  Support your immune system. Get rest. Take Vit. C and some other herbals might be nice...I have posted some stuff about that in the past. collodial silver gel or spray perhaps too directly on sores hugs to you

      No, no Custer. I pop it and it comes back. Thanks you so much for responding.

      @Franky26 your vows include "from this day forth" - there is no fine print that grants you annulment for previous actions and certainly not for the random assortment of herpes viruses that every person walks down the aisle with. To the extent that it was required (and I do not believe it is, although this is not relevant) your partner has been forgiven in the eyes of the Lord for all her past actions; as part of your marriage vows you are joined in that forgiveness. That blood test is notorious for false positives, Having an oral HSV-1 cold sore infection is a known risk factor for a false positive. So yes I do recommend obtaining a further ELISA test. You may even try to obtain the Westernblot from University of Washington for the definitive word on the subject.

      It is pretty definite he has HSV-2 so at least you will be concordant in that respect with no fears of passing it to him. Yes, there is a good possibility of some outbreaks within the first few months, however, this will not be a sign of your longer term experience which should improve tremendously.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.
