When we say a natural remedy "helps" "works" "it's good" "alleviates"...what do we mean by that?? :confused:
I too suffer from herpes and have too tried Valtrex...and eventually I went with my own intuit about things and sought natural or homeopathic remedies. The only thing that has worked for me in it's entirety is DMSO and O2. If you are not at a point of being 100% raw right now....then I would suggest looking into DMSO and O2. It has been a great benefit to me. The worst thing that could happen is that you try it and you find no benefit..but I doubt that very seriously.
Over the years there have been many articles debating if cold sore herpes and genital herpes are or are not related. The most recent conclusion that I read (and I have no articles to back me up here) was that a mouth cold sore could transmit genital herpes if placed on the genitalia. I would rather be safe than sorry. People can go many years without an outbreak so I would also like to know if people think that raw can cure it.
I don't know what to say here...things I've suffered from (not herpes specifically) never went away or even improved upon going raw. Some things seem to need something stronger. (No, fasting doesn't work either; believe me; I've tried it, too), but still, I am firmly against traditional medicine. I would find some sort of herb or essential oil to help with it if you can't get it to leave completely.
ive read the herb FEVERFEW helps with herpes .
and also the suppliments LYSINE and VITAMIN E , besides E internally its also applied externally directly to sore . by the way wheat germ oil is a great natural source of E that you could incorporate into diet .
I've been dealing with herpes for a while -- Most will say it isn't curable, but of course it is possible to cure anything. Herpes is a VIRUS, so like all viruses it can only survive in an anerobic condition. The answer to that is flooding your body with oxygen, both internally and externally. Raw foods is great, but I personally have not found it to be enough. Daily green juice, avoiding foods high in arginine (nuts!), alkaline foods are all essential. Aerobic exercise. Also externally applying hydrogen peroxide and DMSO is incredible. Use CAUTION though. DMSO is a SOLVENT. So know what you're doing with it... I recommend getting a small spray bottle and using that. DMSO will take anything present on your skin into your bloodstream, similar to an injection. Taking zinc and B-12 will usually help, because if you have a virus in your body you are probably deficient in these. Stress is also a huge factor with herpes, so yoga and deep breathing can be really helpful.
Onward and upward!
Put some diaper rash cream with zinc oxide and they will go away very quickly and if you put it on as soon as you feel tingling, they won't even show up. Forget dangerous drugs.I used it on the lips, i don't know if it would work for genital herpes, but probably would - it is the same kind of virus, isn't it?
