Herplex? Anyone tried this?

Recommended Posts

I was looking in the lip balm section of the super-duper-we-sell-everything store, and found a little red box called Herplex, which claims to be a homeopathic herpes treatment. I've never heard of it before, has anyone tried this stuff?

http://www.herplexfree.com/Default.asp?bhcp=1

The ingredients are strange:

Active Ingredients: Natrum Mariaticum (Sodium Choloride) 30x, Rhus Toxicodendron (Poison Ivy) 30x, Ranunculus Bulbosus (Buttercup) 12x, Malus Pumila (Crab Apple) 5x, Phytolacca Decandra (Pokeroot) 3x, Borax (Sodium Borate) 1x

Poison Ivy? Huh?

It claims to be able to treat both type 1 and 2.

I wonder if it's safe to take with my other vitamin supplements. The dosages are similar to when I was on acyclovir, 3 times a day. Except you wouldn't just have one tablet, you'd chew 3-5 each time.

I seen it and bought it and have used it for 1 day. I will let you know in a few days what I think? Did you buy it and try it?

I've been using it since the day I originally posted, but it's hard to tell how it's affecting me with all the other vitamins I've been taking. I'm going to stop taking my supplements for a few days and just take the herplex to see what it does. I've noticed I'm feeling kind of uncomfortable and crampy, but I'm not sure if it's the herplex or something else. I can't find any information about this stuff anywhere.

So I went off *everything* I was taking, then went back to vitamin C, E and B-Complex alone for a day or two. I added 2g of Lysine daily for two days, with little improvement. I've dropped the Lysine and started taking Herplex 3 times a day instead, and boom, a day latter it's healed.

I'm going to stay on it keep everyone informed of how it does over time. Good so far in my opinion.

My Personal Herplex experiment is over.

It did not prevent my third outbreak or lower its intensity, and I have reason to believe it heavily contributed or is completely responsible for a UTI.

Not worth it at all.

Herplex has been very effective for my husband and I

My husband and I both have genital herpes. We tried Valtrex for a while but stopped due to cost, and questioned whether or not it was actually effective. I stumbled on Herplex at Wally World and tried it during an outbreak. Within 2 days my outbreak was gone. Perhaps coincidence... But my husband and I have eached used it on several subsequent outbreaks and each time the symptoms are gone in a day or so (they would otherwise last much longer).

We haven't taken it daily as a preventative, so I can't speak to how well it works for that. It is great at stopping an active outbreak though.

I can't say if it will work for everyone, but we are huge fans at this point. The hard part is finding the stuff. Not every Wally World has it. It's for sale online at the manufacturer's site, but more than I want to pay. I occasionally see it on ebay and pick it up there.

      All I know is what the pipeline says. And it says that trials don't start until 2019/2020. How long they will run and whether they will be successful remains to be seen. Also remember that the start of trials depends on whether the animal studies are successful. And there are always delays even when things are going well from a medical standpoint. So don't get your hopes too high that the trials will start as they currently state. Their biologic is a functional cure at best, not a sterilizing cure. But I don't think there will be too many complaints about that. I thought you already new about Excision Bio and their work.

      It is possible, but id be getting a definitive test. Id get a swab and blood test for confirmation.

      This is not caused most probably by herpes. Suggest you need to see a doctor to pursue some other directions.

      You said that you hoped this would help someone. Well, today it helped me.  I've been broken too many times to count. Unlike that glow stick though we get broken over and over again sometimes. But if we allow ourselves to heal from the brokenness; we can light up this dark world.Thank you:)
