foods low in arginine/high in lysine...I'm confused!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!

Does anyone know where I can get a comprehensive list of foods to avoid when following the high lysine/low arginine protocol? I've looked at several websites but with some of the foods they all have conflicting lists. I'm considering going to a nutritionist as I want to make sure I'm not depriving my body of any essential vitamins and minerals but, thought I'd ask here first.

Thanks for your help

Just remember that arginine is still an important amino acid - you don't want to completely eliminate it, just find the right balance of lysine:arginine.

arginine & lysine diet

Thanks for the replies and the info. I have already seen these lists but again, they don't cover all the food groups and other web sites have conflicting info......who's correct? Does that mean that what isn't on these lists doesn't contain arginine???

Just trying to find a regime that could perhaps lessen my ob's (I seem to have them all the time). I did the DMSO & BOL for 2 years and that didn't work, tried the H-Balm and I'm STILL looking for something that actually works. Just started the Dynamiclear so will see how that goes, seems to dry up the lesions in an amazingly short period of time.

No, the lists generally show foods rich in arginine or lysine. There may be foods that are less known as contributors of either amino acid. If you have specific foods that you are interested in, there are probably nutrition information available if you ask around.

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
