      My prognosis is that the funding for herpes will be either cut down or completely stop for sometime. Curing herpes was never on the priority list of NIH

      I believe from others studies lysine showed mixed effects. HoweverI would question those studies and designs if they are looking at the right factors. The causative factors of chronic infections are a little more complicated than lysine yes or no.  Traditional diets as one can see are naturally high lysine and it seems important in the case of viral infections whether if appears to help or not on the surface.  I posted it as it’s just such a well written and referenced article and explains a lot of orthomolecular science (HTMA science) and is based on the same science as Synergy (science is science published or unpublished!). I cannot tell you how many times I was told this year “It’s not science till it’s published”.  I thought @hk81 might enjoy it as a jumping point into the foray of hazy patchwork of unpublished and published science while applying their keen intellect.  I give this resource to most people as I think it’s an excellent article.

      I take 1000mg of L-lysine daily.  I heard it helped tremendously with OBs. And I never have OB’s. So. I believe it!  (And I’m on no suppressive drugs)

      I don't  believe this will affect the HSV research too much.

      What makes you think that you have HSV-2 in any or a specific location?

Herpes and Constipation

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that I now have chronic constipation after my primary outbreak. Scientists have found a link to it. Has anyone else had this issue? Treatments?

Have you tried any standard treatments from a pharmacy? Soluble fibre would be a good start.

eat fatty meats .  with its grease ,, even makes meat go through .. chewing tobacco in desperation works better coffee. one chew of kodiak or grizzly .  but many things for constiption.  fiber .  have more veggies on the plate and fruit . prunes .  water with your food soften up .  tiny swig of castor oil a week and spams the colon . haha.

I have a semi constipation since a few years that im beginning to suspect is herpes related

 

for the most part my bowel movements are normal but my sphincter just feels tigheter, it is hard to explain but it makes it hard to push out poo if my dump is going to be small

 

I suspect there is a neurlogical basis to thsi but thankfully it isnt too severe

A year and a half i have constipation. I switch  high dose of vitamine C and chia seeds each month. If you stay on chia seeds after a month it doesnt work anymore.

hi yes i have the same issue. my first outbreak was dec.6 but it took 14 doctors to finally link my urinary retention, constipation, and sacrum pain to herpes. ive been going for colonics every 10 days which isnt sustainable because theyre uncomfortable, exensive, etc but normal laxatives don't work any more. going to see an infectious disease specialist this week who specializes in Elsbergs Disease to find out if this is in fact chronic or still just an adverse reaction to the initial herpes outbreak
