Genetial Herpes Simplex- 2
The herpes simplex virus is a master of ambush. It spends most of its life hidden deep within the nerves and waiting for the immune system to drop its guard. When the coast is clear, it rushes to the skin, causing ugly, painful sores that can last a week or more. Then it retreats back into the nerves, waiting weeks, months, or even years before rearing its ugly head once more….
Don’t let Herpes to get Strength
An egg or a bowl of baked beans would have much stopping power against the herpes virus. The herpes virus uses certain amino acids to build the protein sheath that surrounds it. Lysine inhibits the growth of the shield, so the virus can’t flourish.
Eggs, baked beans and legumes are good source of Lysine. Now the lysine capsules are available over the counter at pharmacy/Medical stores without prescription. Between 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams a day is safe to take. In one study, researchers found that people who got 500 to 1,000 milligrams of lysine a day above their normal intake rarely had outbreaks. Even when they did have outbreaks, the sores were smaller than before and in some cases lasted only half as long.
It’s easy to get large amounts of lysine in your diet. Two eggs provide 900 milligrams, and 1cup of baked beans has 960 milligrams. Eat boiled eggs or fried them in butter. Avoid cooking vegetable oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil or other nuts or seeds oil.
Don’t supply the foods that Herpes love
Just as foods high in lysine can inhibit the herpes virus from building its protective coat, foods high in arginine may strengthen its defenses. “Arginine is an amino acid that herpes relies on for building its protein coating. Therefore, stop taking high-arginine foods including chocolate, green peas, peanuts, coconuts, walnuts, other nuts, and beer, almonds and tomatoes. Don’t give high arginine foods to herpes simplex to grow. Avoid vegetable oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, or any oil from seed or nuts. Use butter instead of oil. Take 1 gram of vitamin-C, 3 times daily or moderate amounts of vitamin C and vitamin + E 400 IU.
