I think the goal is to keep your immune system strong, and keep your body more alkaline based than acidic.

Booze and cigs (and I'm not sure about pot) throw your system into a more acidic base and weaken your immune system.

I'd say moderation is the best.

ouch

I occasionally drink...I occasionally have a ciggie...usually WITH said drink...

and you know what? I have not had any issues with either one. These do not seem to trigger outbreaks. For me, it seems to be stress and certain foods.

(which, since Cleansing twice...my body is so jacked up on lemon juice I think it is kicking the shit out of the herpes virus! yay! no signs of outbreak(s) in a while!)

So as Shayna said, anything in moderation. I would just abstain from getting super pissed on liquor! Keep the old immune system good and strong!

A lot of times doctor's don't know for sure. And everyone is different. For some people, alcohol is a trigger. For some people it's not. You'll really just have to try it and see.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
