Ways to prevent an outbreak

Recommended Posts

here-to-help

The Herpes II virus has been in my system for 40 years; my husband passed it on to me shortly after we were married. Years ago, I found a website that shares herpes diet information. I printed the report, and have referred to it for years. I haven't been online to keep up with any new findings or cures in all these years, so when I just tried to find this same information site, I'm not finding it. It sure has helped me, though, and I want to share some of it with you. Number one importance is to keep the immune system strong with proper nutrition, good vitamins, and lower stress. In these 40 years, I had some extremely stressful years, and suffered chronic outbreaks until I got onto some good quality multivitamin supplements. Vitamins from the grocery store or even the health food store have never been good vitamins for building up my immune system, for the outbreaks continued. I was a member of Gold's Gym at the time, so I purchased their vitamins. They worked!! I suggest a good vitamin from a gym, for they serve bodybuilders who need quality nutrition. I no longer live near a Gold's Gym, don't belong to a gym, and now I order multivitamins through Shaklee. They are good quality, and work as well. There are foods and substances that trigger outbreaks, which are high in the amino acid, arginine. This amino acid aggravates the herpes, and brings on an outbreak. Some substances high in arginine include nuts, chocolate, and caffeine. Sad, but true, these three things have triggered outbreaks for us here in our home. I don't drink coffee, but I LOVE peanut butter.  The report gives an antidote for arginine, which is lysine. There are foods which are high in lysine.  Lysine retards virus growth, arginine aggravates virus growth. When eating a food high in arginine, counter-acting with a good dose of lysine will neutralize the arginine's attempt to aggravate.  So, I have a jar of lysine powder that I purchase at the health food store, or order off of Amazon, and when I eat peanut butter, I take 2 or 3 scoops of lysine when I eat the peanut butter, and it prevents an outbreak. My husband will use it also, and it works for him as well. It doesn't work 100% of the time, for sometimes I really indulge in large amounts of peanut butter, which turns out to be a whole lot of arginine, and to counter-act that with a larger dose of lysine, it would be a whole lot of lysine that I'm not williing to swallow. But then, there's garlic! Take the garlic dose I mention in "How to kill an outbreak", and viola! Outbreak is gone! If you google "food ratio of lysine to arginine", there should be lists of foods showing which are high in which. This report states to try to eat foods that have a higher lysine content than arginine content. If you do eat a food higher in arginine than lysine, then supplement with a dose of lysine when eating that particular food. If the ratio is pretty low in comparison, then perhaps it won't trigger an outbreak. Here is a short list of items that the report shows for each category: High in Lysine: beef, brewer's yeast, cheese, chicken, dairy products, eggs, fish, meat, milk, potatoes, soybeans, yogurt. High in Arginine:  brown rice, caffeine, chocolate, coconut, nuts, nut products, oatmeal, raisins, seeds, whole wheat bread.  So, perhaps pay attention when eating these high arginine foods, and see if they are triggering an outbreak.  I hope this helps. Short of a healing miracle from our almighty God, this is the best advice I've come across. God bless you all.  (Please read "How to kill an outbreak" on this site, and try the fresh garlic capsules to kill the outbreak at the onslaught. I hope this helps everyone.)

As time progresses, and we find new things that work  better than others, I want to share what is absolutely working for us here at our home, better than anything I listed above, and that is a DAILY large dose of garlic! One reader responded to my post on "How to Kill an Outbreak", saying they also tried a "crap-load" of garlic, and it killed an outbreak for them as well. Well, I've decided to eat a crap-load on a daily basis to PREVENT an outbreak, and it absolutely works. I LOVE peanut butter, but it triggers raging outbreaks for me. I've been eating several large cloves of garlic each day, and sometimes twice a day, plus eating my peanut butter each day, and have not had an outbreak! The jar of Lysine is untouched in the cupboard. All I've been taking is my daily vitamins and a daily large dose of garlic. Now, 6 days ago, I got lazy and stopped eating garlic for the space of 3 days. I kept eating my peanut butter, and it caught up with me. The day before yesterday, I felt the WORST, most PAINFUL outbreak coming on, that it had me bed-ridden. We females have areas that males don't have, and our insides can hurt to a crippling degree. I forced myself to get up and make my garlic capsules, for I don't want to just eat the garlic and smell of it. I did this morning and night. Actually, morning, afternoon, and evening during the excruciating painful day 1, then morning and night on day 2.  I explain the garlic capsules in "How to Kill an Outbreak". (You don't have to take them with just water, but whatever beverage you choose, and you don't have to ingest the garlic by stuffing gel capsules, but can eat the raw garlic however you please. Just basically eat enough garlic that would, after pressing through a press, fill 4 large, size 000 empty gel capsules. I made this correction in the topic "How to Kill an Outbreak Continued". That's all that was addressed in that article, so no need to read that article after reading this!) Anyway, so, the day before yesterday, (day 1),  I was in crippling pain, yesterday, (day 2),  less so, and today there is absolutely no pain, no sign of blisters forming anywhere, nothing. I'm back to normal, and feel great, and it's a miracle.  The garlic kicked it out, but better yet, the daily garlic had been keeping it away!  On a final note, my husband heard on a radio program of a supplement called "Allicin-C". Allicin is the potent ingredient in garlic that attacks the virus, stopping it in its tracks. The Allicin-C supplement is touted to be as potent as 36 cloves of garlic! I googled it, and found several links. I'll list them for you after I post this. Since I now know the power of garlic, I plan to order some Allicin-C and give it a try. I'll post the results when I know them. I hope some more of you would try the daily mega-dose of garlic and see if it helps you as well!

      It is already a hassle getting started with making it.  I end up with more questions than I can find answers for, but stumble on...  I am retired so feel like my job is (finally) taking care of myself.  I have had few health issues, generally healthy--except for the H bomb.  If i have to make liposomal 2x a week, i dont think it will be a big deal.  The big deal is getting the equipment and getting started i think.  I make kombucha, which is sort of like having a not-very-demanding pet.  I dont mind doing this kind of stuff.  But will probably keep liposomal capsules or packets on hand for times when its inconvenient to make it. I cant believe u r sucking down 6 g of AA at a time!  The most i drink with AA is 2 g at a time.  I am currently taking 4 g AA and 9 g liposomal C in caps/packets. The protocol evolves.  I am so thrilled to not have BO's that i dont care what i have to do. They ruined my life.  I am glad u r finally getting good results with your fight against H.  Have u tried drinking the AA thru a straw with the straw toward the back of your mouth to avoid teeth?  I would think baking soda and water swished around in your mouth after drinking the AA would neutralize any remaining acid.  My teeth have pretty strong enamel, so i dont worry about it (but dont do 6 g AA at a time).  If u r worried about acid erroding tooth enamel, why arent u worried about 6 g of AA at a time going down the soft tissues of your esophagus and onward?  Im not saying its wrong, just wondering.   
    • Not sure what I’ve got
      Additionally to the above and to answer you question more precisely, it had been 12 days (probably more) before I started to get itchy (I could swear the rash started as insect bites, each very distinct - I am in a hostel so there is a chance it was bedbugs). Before that it had been a week or two.  I also had been cycling intensely in 35 plus degree heat (temps were around 38 degrees today. And the spot where the rash showed up is the exacts spot where my upper thigh rubs the seat. Finally, my clothes were washed by a laundry service, and the T-shirt I was wearing that was washed in the same load had been irritating my skin.

      @Sabayou have no need to be concerned with genital herpes. Your symptoms are not those of herpes.  If you have concerns, seek out the type specific HSV testing.
