23 Mar How to Keep Your Immune System “Tuned Up” to Prevent Outbreaks

healthy fruitsYour immune system is your best defense against outbreaks (as well as other illnesses) Here are some tips on keeping your immune system running it’s best!

Get plenty of rest- Preferably eight hours a night.  Sleep gives your body the chance to re-energize for the next day, as well as recover from the current days stress on the body.

Avoid Poor Quality Food – Fried, processed, high sugar and high sodium foods tax your body instead of supporting your immune system. Try to eat fresh foods prepared with as little fat, salt, trans-fat and sugar as possible to give your immune system the fuel it needs.

Avoid smoking, drugs and alcohol – the less your body has to deal with substances that are harmful, the more your immune system can work on keeping you healthy and avoiding outbreaks. Drink alcohol in moderation.

Get Regular Exercise – Exercise keeps your immune system up, so even if you just go for a walk around the block it will pay off! A little sunshine each day (careful to use lip balm with SPF if you are prone to cold sores) will also help by boosting your natural vitamin D.

Include Fresh Fruit in your diet – Fruits are rich in anti-oxidants, so be sure to include them in your daily diet whether it is eating them or juicing them.  Fruit is the easiest way to incorporate daily anti-oxidants in your diet!

Take an immunity boosting supplement – Supplements such as those advertised on this website will insure that you are getting the nutrients that keep your immune system functioning.

Take care of your emotional health – Make sure you take time out for yourself, focus on the positives in your life, watch a funny movie or TV show, do what makes you happy for at least a few minutes every day. If you find you are dwelling on things that make you unhappy, consider therapy to help you break out of that pattern.

23 Mar Top 9 Triggers for Cold Sore Outbreaks And How To Prevent Them

lips-856628-m

There are many triggers that can cause a cold sore outbreak.  Below are a few of the most common causes, and what you can do to prevent them.

Skin damage – Laser treatment for hair removal or other skin treatment can trigger an outbreak.  So can dental treatment, chapped lips or even razor burn from kissing a partner with stubble.  Keeping your immune system running at top notch can help mitigate a reaction to skin damage.

Pregnancy – The hormonal changes during pregnancy can trigger an outbreak.  While there is not much you can do about the hormonal fluctuations, a strong immune system will help.

Menstruation – The hormonal changes during your monthly cycle can also trigger an outbreak. As with pregnancy, there is little you can do about the hormonal fluctuations that come with your cycle, but you can try to keep your immune system strong.

Fatigue and Lack of Sleep – Fatigue and stress can lower your immune system and make you more susceptible to an outbreak.  Make sure getting enough rest is high on your priority list!

Stress- Stress is a big trigger for outbreaks as it lowers your immune system and allows the virus to rise to the surface.  Try to reduce stress and focus on immune system boosters by eating healthy and including immune system boosters in your regimen.

Cold Weather – Cold dry weather can be a big factor in outbreaks. Lip balm provides good defense against the dry cold air, make sure to use it every time you are exposed to cold dry air..

Sun – Just like cold dry air, intense sun can also trigger a cold sore. Lip balm with a high SPF factor will help protect your lips from the sun and avoid outbreaks.

Sickness – If you have a cold, flu or fever you are more vulnerable for an outbreak. Taking a fever reducer can help lower the risk.  Keeping your immune system boosted will help prevent outbreaks.

Lowered Immune System – Anytime your immune system is compromised, whether it is from lack of sleep, stress or an illness, you are prone to an outbreak. Try to keep your immune system boosted with a healthy diet, plenty of rest and immune boosting supplements can help.

25 Feb Herpes and Peanut Butter

It may be hard to believe, but eating a simple food like peanut butter can cause a herpes outbreak! Whether you experience HSV1 that causes cold sores, HSV2 that causes genital herpes, or herpes zoster (better known as shingles) you need to know what foods to avoid so that you can reduce your risk of outbreaks, or lessen them.

We heard reports of people saying they thought outbreaks might be triggered by peanut butter, and after researching the issue we found there is a scientific reason this can happen.

It has been discovered that foods high in an amino acid called arginine can trigger herpes outbreaks or prevent an outbreak from resolving. The arginine actually “feeds” the herpes virus and allows it to reproduce.

The reason peanut butter is an offender is the high arginine content in peanuts. Peanuts, like other nuts, are very rich in arginine.
Foods besides peanut butter that are high in arginine include chocolate, drinks that contain arginine, protein shakes and oats. Some multiple vitamins or muscle building formulas also contain arginine.

Arginine naturally occurs in the human body, so you can’t avoid it totally, but reducing your intake of arginine can help avoid outbreaks, and if you are having an outbreak it is even more important to avoid arginine.

It is essential to be aware of the arginine content in the foods you eat, so that you can limit the arginine in your food and drinks as much as possible. You can search online to see the arginine content in food, so that you can adjust your diet to eating foods low in arginine.
This doesn’t mean you can never eat foods with arginine in them, but if you are aware that a food you commonly eat (like peanut butter!) has a high arginine content, keep your portions small and don’t eat it every day.

21 Jan Stop Genital Herpes Outbreak

An estimated 81% of people who have genital herpes are unaware of their condition. Are you one of them?

Because there is no herpes cure, genital herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. Genital herpes, most commonly caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), affects 16% of the U.S. population – meaning statistically, one out of every six people you meet or walk by on the street may have genital herpes. What is more alarming is what the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has determined: an increasing number of people are getting genital herpes from HSV-1, the virus responsible for causing cold sores which appear on and around the mouth.

Since an estimated 81% of people who have genital herpes do not know they are infected, and because HSV-1 genital herpes has been on the rise, the CDC estimates that the percentage of the population infected with genital herpes could be much higher than 16%. Since the general public is not very educated on this condition, many people do not recognize their symptoms or misdiagnose themselves, and thereby unwittingly spread the condition to others.

 What Can Be Done About Genital Herpes?

Even though herpes symptoms are on the skin, the virus itself resides in the nerve cells, often hidden away in the spinal column. For this reason, many topical remedies are widely regarded as ineffective because creams only soothe the skin, and cannot penetrate to the nerve root.

Long-time sufferers of genital herpes will be able to attest that the best form of herpes treatment is an antiviral herpes remedy. Antiviral herpes treatments are not cures; they can “cure” symptoms by suppressing the virus, but they cannot actually degrade or destroy the virus.

Most people consider expensive prescription antivirals like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex as their only source of relief for oral and genital herpes. These harsh chemical drugs have many side effects that can be nearly as discomforting as the condition itself – common side effects include diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness, and general feelings of weakness. Many people have also experienced alarming allergic reactions that can damage the skin (in rare cases causing lethal conditions like toxic epidermal necrolysis) and other organs.

FENVIR, a new natural antiviral herpes treatment, has garnered great success in its short time on the market. This herpes remedy uses natural compounds to effectively accomplish the same results as prescription antivirals, without any reported side effects. Many have claimed that it is even more effective than traditional antiviral herpes treatments. FENVIR, like all antivirals, is capable of reducing the length of time it takes for outbreaks to heal, inhibiting instances of viral shedding, and can even prevent outbreaks from occurring altogether if taken preventively as part of a daily regimen.

If you have recently found out that you or someone you know has genital herpes, make the safe, smart choice, and use FENVIR to address uncomfortable herpes symptoms. Genital herpes is the most common STD; do not for a moment feel that you are alone when facing this condition. If you would like to learn more about this condition, visit FENVIR.com today.

21 Sep Genital Herpes

genital herpesGenital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease borne of the herpes simplex virus type 1 (usually associated with oral infection) and type 2 (usually genital). Genital herpes is contracted most often by having sex with someone who has the condition whether they have visible sores or not. Many people who have genital herpes experience either no symptoms or very mild ones that can be mistaken for other skin conditions. Because of this many people with genital herpes are unaware of their infection and can unwittingly spread it to others. There are no cures for oral or genital herpes, but treatments exist that can help people with herpes limit the number of outbreaks they have.

Want to Learn More About Genital Herpes?

“Herpes viruses are a leading cause of human viral disease, second only to influenza and common colds. They cause overt cold sores and chickenpox, or they may remain latent for many years to be reactivated in later life, as in shingles.

The name herpes is derived from the Greek word herpein which means to creep. This reflects the spreading or creeping nature of the skin lesions caused by many herpes viruses.

There are 25 types of herpes viruses. Six types cause medical problems in humans.

Herpes simplex 1 and 2 can infect both humans and other animals, but only humans show the blisters typical of the disease. The hallmark of herpes its ability to infect epithelial mucosal cells or lymphocytes. The virus then travels up peripheral nerves to a nucleated neurone where it may stay for years and be followed by reactivation.

The site of the initial infection is usually the oral or genital mucosa, depending on the way in which the person acquires therpes. It is often noted that HSV-1 infects above the waist and HSV-2 infects below the waist, but either version of herpes can infect at either locale, and this reflects the mode of transmission rather than any intrinsic property of the virus. Both types of herpes can also persistently infect macrophages and lymphocytes.”

Original story here.

Genital herpes often appears within 4-5 days after sexual exposure to herpes. Some of the common symptoms include pain, itching, and burning. Other signs may include headaches, muscle pain, and swollen and enlarged lymph nodes.

Cures are unavailable for any type of herpes. Though research for cures has been extensive, there has not been any significant developments among the scientific community for truly killing the virus. Many remedies exist however that provide effective treatment for herpes symptoms. Treatment can vary from natural remedies to prescription treatment, but effective remedies are directly relative to the treatment’s antiviral capabilities. Treatment “cures” away sores by suppressing herpes in the nerve root where it subsides; topical remedies are usually not strong enough to do anything more than penetrate the skin. In other words, the best treatment you can find will come in pill form, and remedies the source of the herpes outbreak – the nerve root.

Until proper cures are developed, remedies are the only source of oral or genital herpes treatment and relief.

13 Sep Herpes Cold Sore

herpes virus cold soreA herpes cold sore, often called a fever blister, is a lesion or bump in or around the mouth caused by the herpes simplex virus. While typically a result of a herpes simplex type 1 infection, these lesions can also be caused by HSV 2 (genital herpes).

12 Sep Are Cold Sores Contagious?

are cold sores contagious

Considering that more than half of the US population is infected with facial herpes, it is no wonder people everywhere are asking themselves, “Are cold sores contagious?” The answer to this question is simple; all herpes lesions are extremely contagious and can easily be spread to a sexual partner’s genitals or face. (It is even possible to have a herpes lesion on the eye.)

While normally referred to as cold sores, herpes simplex virus type 1 can also be caused by herpes simplex type-2 — but while genital herpes is considered a sexually transmitted disease, facial herpes (herpes labialis) is not.

29 Aug Herpes Simplex Vaccine

While there are still no herpes cures available, new advances in medicine may make it possible for infected individuals to stop herpes sores and even reduce the risk of transmitting herpes to others. The Center for Clinical Studies in Houston is current conducting trials on a new vaccine that may be able to boost immunity to herpes and in turn suppress outbreaks.

Current herpes remedies on the market can effectively do the same thing. They are able to boost the immune system in order to suppress herpes within the infected cells. These types of alternatives to dangerous prescription drug remedies are extremely safe and result in no unwanted side-effects.

The Center for Clinical Studies’ Herpes Simplex Vaccine Experiment

“There is new hope for people who suffer from genital herpes. A new vaccine is being tested in Houston.

If it works, it could stop the outbreaks and literally put the herpes virus in remission.

Patients get a series of three shots in this blinded study, and they aren’t told if they got the treatment or not.

“It’s based on studies of people who were exposed to the virus and didn’t get infected and so the idea is these three shots will boost the immunity such that people don’t have outbreaks in the future,” said Dr. Stephen Tyring with the vaccine study.

And Dr. Tyring says researchers believe it may also prevent people from spreading the virus.”

Original story here.

The discovery of oral and genital herpes cures would not just be important to infected individuals and their sexual partners, but would benefit society in general. This type of injection would eliminate the need for expensive daily prescription herpes treatment and could lead to other important medical innovations as well.

Of course, natural “cures” for oral and genital herpes offer faster, cheaper, safer, and better over-all treatment than prescription remedies because of their lack of dangerous side effects. They offer the benefits of a boosted immune system comparable to the vaccination being tested in Houston without the pain of injections, either.

Until real cures that kill herpes labialis and genital herpes at the nerve root are created, natural herpes remedies are the best option to prevent cold sores, ward off viral shedding (infecting other when you don’t have active sores), and boost the healing time of lesions.

Additionally, be aware that many retailers make claims that their remedies for oral and genital herpes are true cures. Do not be deceived. If cures were created for oral or genital herpes, such treatment would be broadcasted world-wide. If Herpes Treatment Site is not reporting on so-called “cures,” then don’t bother with them at all!
