Healing Herpes Naturally - My Amazing Story (And How You Can Have One Too)!
My story begins about ten years ago, it was nearly four months after beginning a new relationship with a wonderful, kind woman named Stephanie. We had fallen in love and were taking things slowly. We both had lived our entire lives up to this point, free of any STD or STD symptoms, I was forty, she was thirty two. By the time we became sexually active, we were careful to use condoms, until we both had confirmed medical tests that declared us each free of any STD. That is when the story gets a little rocky.
My health suddenly changed for the worse, I woke up one morning with a painful lump and sore on my penis, and immediately went to the doctor for an exam and test. The doctor confidently, upon visual inspection, informed me that I had contracted herpes (HSV-2 to be precise).
To make matters worse the doctor proceeded to quash all hope I had for a cure, and eliminate any possibility the diagnosis was something minor or curable with a simple course of antibiotics. As the Dr. said "the test was simply a formality to confirm her initial diagnosis".
I was devastated! I was angry! I had been betrayed by the person I had fallen in love with! And now I had to confront Stephanie with the bad news, not only had I contracted herpes, but she is the person who gave it to me(I was only sexually active with her)!
My first reaction was an angry phone call to Stephanie, followed by me venting my rage on her voice mail. I had decided that this type of betrayal was grounds for ending our relationship, so later when we spoke in person I was hostile, and not very kind.
What made the situation even more volatile and fired up my angry response even further was that she had denied ever having herpes or ever having any symptoms (I thought this was impossible, not knowing much about the virus at that time). Stephanie tried to suggest I had had it all along. I simply felt she was lying to me, since I was the one who suddenly developed the health problem!
I wondered why Stephanie had lied to me about her medical exam results, and thought to myself "What kind of person would knowingly expose me to this 'permanent' disease?" This person was supposed to be my partner...we were in love...yet she had just given me a "life sentence" of pain, suffering and humiliation(or so I thought).
The next day, after my temper cooled down and we could discuss what had happened more rationally, we decided that she would go and get a blood test. A blood test would confirm if she had any anti-bodies to the virus and determine if she actually had herpes as well.
While we waited for Stephanie's results my focus shifted to treatments. My first response was to follow the doctors orders. I went to the drugstore and picked up the prescription for acyclovir and begin taking it immediately.
The Bad News - Acylovir Will Not Cure Herpes!
What is acyclovir? According to Wikipedia: "Acyclovir (Zovirax) is an antiviral drug. It slows the growth and spread of the herpes virus so that the body can fight off the infection. Acyclovir will not cure herpes, but it can lessen the symptoms of the infection. Acyclovir is used to treat infections caused by herpes viruses. Illnesses caused by herpes viruses include genital herpes, cold sores, shingles, and chicken pox."
I began the diligent use of Acyclovir, taking it exactly as scheduled, but it did not seem to be working. Over time, I discovered that it did absolutely nothing to mitigate my symptoms...yet I continued to take it with each recurrence... hopeful it "may build up in my system" and finally begin working...yet each time it failed to even reduce my symptoms!
"This was the best that modern medical science had to offer?"...I thought to myself. An expensive, toxic medication, that in my case did absolutely nothing! I was feeling as though my situation was hopeless...so I went back to the doctor to see if another option was available. I proceeded to try every other known pharmaceutical anti-viral drug available, and the bad news was that none of them worked for me...not even a little bit.
Natural Alternatives - Do They Actually Work?... Sort of!
Since my treatment using the best that "modern science" had to offer was a total failure...I began to research on the internet, I was delving into the world of "alternative cures" an area that many consider "quackery". I thought I could do no worse than the conventional medicine that had failed me miserably. So, for the next year, I became obsessed with learning what natural substances I could use that would purportedly boost immune response.
I looked into all of the same things you probably did: Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM), Ayurveda, and tried a litany of purportedly immune boosting herbs like Olive Leaf Extract, Echinacea, Golden Seal, Garlic, Colloidal Silver, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Astragalus, Ginseng, Elderberry, Ginger, Onion, Tea Tree Oil, and Oregano. I also tried all of the popular alternative topical (DMSO)and internal (MMS, and Hydrogen Peroxide) alternative treatments for herpes, each gave me hope for an answer.
What I found was that some of these alternative treatments did provide me with some relief, and many had a significant amount of scientific research to back up their claims. I was pleased that some of them seemed to shorten the duration and severity of my outbreaks, yet the herpes outbreaks persisted at a rate of one every two weeks. I wanted a real answer, something that would stomp out the symptoms of this painful menace!
I went on to add immune supportive vitamins and minerals to my routine, vitamin A, C, D, B complex, a mineral supplement, a multivitamin, zinc, selenium, chromium, and then I added the amino acid l-lysine, the severity and duration of my outbreaks improved a little, certainly much better than with the pharmaceutical drugs I tried. Yet, I still found no cure, none of these approaches stopped my outbreaks or prevented them from coming back.
I was not about to quit this journey of discovery, this new world of natural medicine showed promise. Especially since I had experienced some success with these "alternative treatments". I decided to look even further into so called "alternative cures", while maintaining a good bit of healthy skepticism, judging the treatment only by it's effectiveness in my own body.
What is Alkalizing and the pH Miracle Diet? Is it a Miracle?
In my quest for forbidden knowledge, I discovered the theory of alkalizing and tried sodium chlorite drops (also known as MMS or Liquid Stabilized Oxygen) to alkalize my water, and topical DMSO, these both actually worked well to control my symptoms and I was getting closer to the "Holy Grail". Stephanie skeptically observed as I frantically searched for the truth, amid a sea of alternative medicine treatments.
Still not satisfied with simply improving my symptoms, and firmly believing a natural answer to my problem was right around the corner, I went on to read more about this theory of pH and alkalizing the body. I think I bought every book that Amazon.com had on the topic and devoured them looking for answers.
After all of this reading, I was eventually convinced by the work of Dr. Robert Young, that if I could create an alkaline environment in my body, that no virus, bacteria, mold, or fungus, could survive. I wanted to test the theory out for myself, in my own body. I was emboldened by my earlier progress with other alternative treatments.
The next step for me was to commit to change my eating habits and adopt an alkaline diet. I started eating a raw vegan "greens" alkaline diet, as recommended by Dr. Robert Young, author of the "PH Miracle". I found the diet a pretty radical change and much more difficult than I expected. Ultimately, I went off the strict version of the diet, but I did eliminate a significant number of acidic foods and drinks, and I added a number of alkaline foods to my daily routine.
My symptoms did continue to improve, outbreaks were less and less severe! "This PH Miracle alkaline diet and theory must be true.", I thought to myself. I found it troubling that modern medicine was missing out on what seemed to be a profoundly powerful truth...a truth I had experienced in my own body first hand!
Oxygen is the Key?
I went on to read Ed McCabe's book "Flood Your Body With Oxygen" where I learned that oxygen increases alkalinity of the body, so I added internally ingested hydrogen peroxide to my routine, and bought PH testing strips to see if my system was becoming alkaline...then something interesting happened. The outbreaks continued to be fewer and less severe, I thought I was on to something...who would have thought eating green stuff and a little oxygen would make a difference?
From Dr. Young's writings, I learned that a common kitchen pantry item was highly alkalizing, and started using that as well...right at the first signs of podrome...and guess what happened? My outbreaks stopped! That's right...my outbreaks Stopped! Wow...I was surprised, elated and relieved! Stephanie was relieved too, she had been feeling tremendous guilt for passing this little demon on to me...and now I was free of the of the persistent, recurring symptoms.
By this point in my quest for the mythical HSV "Holy Grail", Stephanie and I had worked things out and come to terms with the fact she was an innocent victim of the herpes virus, as was I. Stephanie had never experienced any symptoms of herpes, despite having tested positive for the antibodies of the virus in the blood test she ordered after I was infected.
The herpes virus was no longer ruling(or ruining) my life and things were getting back to normal. I felt that I could control the outbreaks any time I wanted...with a common kitchen pantry item of all things! This was a highly unexpected, inexpensive, safe and effective treatment that I had in my refrigerator! I felt I had taken control of my health destiny.
I Accidentally Discovered Something New! Should I Try It?
What kept me searching, was the fact that this alkalizing protocol did not completely eliminate the virus from my system, I knew it was still there...lingering...just waiting to erupt with painful symptoms, the threat of a future herpes outbreak kept me ever vigilant and wary of another episode that needed to be extinguished.
Then one day researching "alternative medicine cures" for cancer, to help my sick father, I stumbled upon Dr. Ray Lala...the creator of a herpes "detox". I read the about the ingredients in his "detox" and Dr. Lala's theory of how the "detox" could help my body's immune system push the herpes virus out of the cells...I was intrigued! This Detox is a "Natural Cure That They Don't Want You To Know About" as Kevin Trudeau wrote in his bestselling book.
Dr. Lala's theory made sense to me, it was consistent with my own discovery of Dr. Young's pH theory that alkalizing the body could cure disease. From reading the ingredients in the "detox" I could see that it was made of many different minerals. Dr. Lala's "detox" was made with ingredients that were all alkalizing...presumably combined together in a unique protocol that Dr. Lala says allows the minerals to enter the cell and push the virus out. His approach seemed more advanced than my recently discovered alkalizing protocol. Dr. Lala had spent 20 years working on perfecting the "detox" before releasing it to the public 10 years ago.
I decided to buy the "detox" (click here for more info) for Christmas for both Stephanie and I. I had to buy two "detox" kits, since we ran the risk of re-infecting each other, so we both completed the detox to get the best results.
I can't believe it! My symptoms stopped!
The "detox" took 50 days to complete(we followed it exactly as Dr. Lala's staff instructed us, also eliminating soda, coffee, sugar and I personally had to do two boosters for the symptoms to subside)...and my life has never been the same. I have my health back...and no longer take any medication or use any alternative treatments for herpes at all...best of all I no longer suffer from painful outbreaks. Stephanie and I are eternally grateful for the brave work of Dr. Young, Ed McCabe, and especially Dr. Lala and his herpes "detox".
I hope that the truth of my incredible healing journey is a story that resonates with you and my experience can help guide you to embark on your own quest for true health and ultimately to your own healing success story.
Jeffrey and Stephanie
