Hmmmmm, PMS, prostaglandins and outbreaks

Recommended Posts

LovedAnyway

Ladies, I have been suffering from monthly outbreaks before my period and I’ve read that many of you have, too.  I’ve read all about the estrogen and progesterone balance and how estrogen dominance is thought to cause outbreaks.  I’m currently in perimenopause and it’s getting worse. Anyway, I’ve been following this Dr Pridgen in Alabama that treats chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia with antivirals and Celebrex.  He’s had tremendous success and is trying to raise funds for a phase 3 trial.  I’m scared to take Celebrex so I was trying to find natural alternatives.  Celebrex is a cox 2 inhibitor, meaning it reduces prostaglandins.  Turmeric and green tea are excellent Cox 2 inhibitors.  So, I researched how to lower prostaglandins and found links to high prostaglandins and PMS.  Since the Celebrex is working for people to stop outbreaks and cure fatigue caused by hsv, maybe it’s the high prostaglandins and not high estrogen that causes outbreaks around periods.  Am I making sense? Maybe it’s not just estrogen. If we can focus on lowering these prostaglandins maybe we can stop the cyclical outbreaks.  I know magnesium is used for this and omega 3s.

here is the article that talks about prostaglandins and periods.  It’s really about balancing omega 3s with omega 6s so it could help men, too, I think.

less fat meat is better for women s issues .. fat is good for me ..  helps you sleep and relax . keeps stomach full less hungry .  china study proves no meat long life .. huge study . when sick you should fast starve and be vegan .  big book o it . leave it to china ..  starve a little body and organs catch up ..  do better job symptoms go away .  cure fatty liver as well.  medicines back up the organs as well . i went to food controls which i eat tasty beer food and snacks .  fat and sugar together sugar makes fat stick to arteries and such ..  fast problem goes away ..

joking aside mixed wth truth i use things that help body kit attack virus. somethings do kill it but you can't get it all but suppression and symptom killing helps prevent it spreading on you or loved ones ..  healthy more than not ..  same time it prevents outbreaks . i got rid of chronic problems  with bio 30 went heathy for a while ...  now seeds doing it . hemp oil and even puffing  helps body fight it .   balances the system ..  few other things that help but can't take it every day ..  like your post . not so cave man like me ..  explaines why i do and use products .. they proven to kill it and work with body to maintain health.

      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.
