Natural Treatments for Genital Herpes, Cold Sores and Shingles

Natural Treatments for Genital Herpes, Cold Sores and Shingles (Second Edition) - John W Hill

This book discusses the major Natural and Alternative treatments for the Herpes Family viruses that have been documented in the Scientific and Medical Literature. It discusses several nutritional supplements and inexpensive over-the-counter medications that boost the immune system. It also discusses several foods, supplements and herbs that have anti-viral properties. The emphasis is on correlating potential natural and alternative therapies with relevant published research. Some have substantial supporting research and others very little. Get the documented facts, not unfounded claims.

  • Cimetadine (an inexpensive OTC drug with immune enhancing properties) has proven to be equal to or superior to expensive antiviral drugs in treating herpes simplex and herpes zoster. See why and how and what protocol researchers used.

  • Coconut oil lyses lipid coated viruses including the herpes family. Learn more about the anti-microbial and other health benefits of coconut oil.

  • Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Zinc in combination can significantly enhance the function of your immune system. Thymic Protein A, Lactoferrin and Beta 1,3 Glucan are additional innume system boosters that may be beneficial without risking side effects.

  • BHT (an inexpensive food preservative and antioxidant) inactivates the herpes (and other lipid coated viruses) by solubilizing the lipid coating. Learn more about the research findings, history and treatment protocols.

  • In vitro research showed that Incole-3-Carbinol (I3C) and Resveratrol are 99% effective in preventing the herpes virus from replicating in human cells. Learn more about the health benefits of these supplements and their derivatives.

  • Omega-3 fatty acids strengthen cell membranes making them more resistant to viral attack.

  • Lysine supplements and diets with a high lysine/arginine ratio inhibit herpes virus replication.

  • Garlic, Olive Leaf Extract, Green Tea and Propolis have antiviral properties. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of using these and other natural supplements.

  • Researchers discovered that oral proteolytic enzymes were more effective than antiviral drugs in reducing the length and severity of outbreaks.

      It is believed that there is no cure for herpes virus infections. This is because they infect the nerve cells and lie dormant in the nuclei of the nerve cells in the brain waiting for the immune system to weaken so they can become active again. The conventional medical treatment for herpes virus infections is several anti-viral drugs and an assortment of drugs that provide only symptomatic relief. These drugs suppress the virus reducing the severity and frequency of outbreaks but do not eliminate it from the body. On-going drug therapy is required to keep the virus in remission for some individuals. The herpes viruses do not die, they go dormant when the going gets rough.

      The current medications used for herpes have the disadvantages of being very expensive, not offering a cure and having potentially harmful side effects.

      This book discusses alternative treatments for herpes simplex type1, herpes simplex type 2, and herpes zoster infections. These treatments are alternative in the sense that they are not FDA approved standard treatments for these viral infections. However, these treatments are documented to varying degrees in the medical and scientific literature.

      None of these alternative treatments are likely to ever be approved because they are inexpensive and unpatentable.
