Herpes Simplex Virus
The Herpes Simplex Virus is very common and is one of a family of herpes viruses all of which remain in the body once caught. As many as three quarters of people are unaware they have the virus, some have very mild symptoms and others have very noticeable symptoms.
Type 1 and Type 2 of Herpes can both cause symptoms on the face, hands or genitals, Type 1 is more likely to re-occur when it is caught on the face and type 2 is more likely to re-occur when affecting the genitals. Type 1 does not often recur if caught on the genitals. There is no difference in the visible symptoms caused by the two types.
Symptoms start with itching, inflammation and discomfort in the area affected. There can also be general flu-like symptoms with backache, headache, temperature, soreness and mild swelling of the lymph glands in the groin, armpits and neck.
A good diet and healthy immune system will reduce the frequency and severity of attacks, please see our Dietary Guidelines
Natural Remedies for Herpes Simplex
We recommend Zell-Oxygen
for all health conditions where the immunity is lowered - a product that has many years of successful clinical use behind it and can justly be described as an essential supplement. Rich in all B Vitamins as well as A, E, D, K, beta carotene, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids such as Methionine, Gluthathione and Cysteine. Followed by Co enzyme A and Co enzyme Q 10. plus a number of other enzymes, serves to raise the overall level of health, a vital remedy in cases of Herpes.
We recommend the "Natural Antibiotic" - Colloidal Silver
. Ongoing research may eventually restore Colloidal Silver
to its once accepted status as probably the most versatile and effective natural agent against bacteria. It has a hugely important bonus in that bacteria find it almost impossible to develop resistance to it. It can be applied topically and taken internally.
Vitamin C is vital for the immune system. Taking Vitamin C a as a food state supplement as opposed to a synthetic product will be even more effective in reducing the inflammation and infection. We recommend Acerola Cherry Extract
- one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C, higher than rose hips. It is immune enhancing and helps the growth and repair of tissue; during an attack we would advise taking 6 capsules a day.
