Just got results :(

Recommended Posts


It's official, I have hsvII. My question is to anyone who is in the UK, what are my options for suppressive treatment? Ok, we have aciclovir and I believe famciclovir (sp). I hear a lot of talk on here about valtrex - is that a name for one of the meds I've mentioned already? If not, is that available in the UK; I'm so confused.

I have a food question also - are olives high in arginine and/or acidic?

I'm so sorry to hear you've got a confirmation Genuissa. I cant answer the question on olives but I'm sure someone else will know and respond to that.

As for anti-virals, acyclovir is probably the least expensive it just takes more doses. Famcyclovir? I think is a generic of Famvir here in the states which requires only a one day 2 pill dose to reduce outbreaks, and in the UK you may have the generic form of Valtrex in Valacyclovir which dosing for suppression might only require 1 pill a day, for outbreaks 1 or 2 pills a day for 5 or 10 days.

I hope you don't have frequent outbreaks and that everything else in your life is going well, it will go a long way in the stress factor that can trigger them.

So sorry, sweetie, if you have any more questions feel free to ask.

thanks for your reply helied2me; I guess I just need to get myself to my docs and see what my options are. I'm trying all sorts of herbal remedies at the mo and supplements, high lysine, low arginine diet + high alkaline diet; although all that is very confusing, lol! I'm trying to get hold of some prunella vulgaris herbal tincture - supposedly a great anti viral. Although, that is proving impossible to source in UK (like most things - arghh, I need to move to USA)! lol!

I hope you are doing well today helied2me and thanks once again for the reply

I'm doing good today Genuissa, thanks.

Your on the right track with trying a natural way to reduce outbreaks, just be patient because they do take longer than pharmaceuticals. I, for one, try to avoid pharmaceuticals myself, but I'll take them if I have to. Google the prunella vulgaris, maybe you will find it online and be able to order it that way. Others here have also had a lot of success with oil of oregano the p73 form.

Hopefully when your immune system adjusts, you can just keep it under control with the natural supplements. Let me know how it works out.

      OK sir, let me explain so even you can understand. When I speak of inaccessibility, I'm referring to the immune system; i.e. In general, the immune system does not enter cells and kill viruses. Further, because the herpes virus resides in the neuronal cells, the immune system wont kill those cells (for obvious reasons) to clear the virus. The end result is that the virus is inaccessible by the immune system and the virus remains for life. My statement is/was accurate.

      Well guys, i had the talk... and it went even worse than I thought. He refused to talk to me in person, so I had to do it through text. He said “well I’ve never had symptoms, so I’m not getting tested. You work in the medical field, you probably paid someone to fabricate those test results to try to trap me into a relationship. I will have no further contact with you” ... and then he blocked me from everything. And THEN less than 24 hours later, messaged my old room mate asking her to come over for a beer and movie night.  HES DISGUSTING!! I was considering taking legal action against him, because with his total lack of sympathy, and the fact that he tried to sleep with my friend less than 24 hours after I told him, I think he knew he had it and just didn’t care... so I messaged his ex on Facebook to see if She knew he had it. She wasn’t sure but she is definitely going to get tested now... she told me he is an extreme narcissist and emotionally manipulates people. ... after doing my research, it all makes sense.    So since hes not sorry, I decided to do some type of revenge. I reported him for fishing without a license, and having a trailer with no tags. I’m not sure if he got cited or not, but the cops definitely investigated... because about an hour after my complaint I got 4 consecutive calls from a blocked number less than a minute apart.... he was angry and trying to reach me.    Im just devastated that he did this to me and doesn’t even care. He lead me to believe he cared about me

      Well you’re nearly there. As you say you can’t patent a natural substance such as vitamin C. Anyone can use it and develop their own product.  Nothing stopping this with your mushroom then!

      @WilsoInAus Another display of ignorance, here’s an example, vitamin c is found in nature, you cannot patent vitamin c, but you can make your own mixture of compounds where vitamin c is the pertinent substance and patent that mixture,  regardles though, the main ingredient is an extracted compound found in nature, or perhaps they synthesized a very close mimicking compound so yes you can patent naturally occurring compounds if you know how to make it original like the example I gave above
