Genital Herpes Cures

Genital Herpes Cures: A Possible Solution

The phrase “Genital Herpes Cures” instantly gives rise to an immediate question, “Can genital herpes be cured?”

What is a cure, by the way?

If you are in this page and reading this article, it is certain that you need more information about genital herpes cure.

If curiosity is the reason that you are here, you will get some information here, but, my words are less likely to touch you.

This article is intended for people who are already frustrated with the present system of treatment of genital herpes.

The following passage from James Tyler Kent, an American, a renowned doctor, healer, homeopath, illustrates what the highest ideals of a cure can be from Samuel Hahnemann’s Organon of medicine.

 "The highest ideal of a cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the sickness to health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles."

This seemingly simple definition is very deep like an ocean in its meaning. In simple terms this means three things.

Restoration of health, and not the removing of symptoms

All the cases where the symptoms are removed can not be called a cure. If the removal of symptoms is not followed by a restoration to health, it cannot be called a cure.

Restoration is to be done promptly, mildly and permanently

When a medicine causes side effects it can not cure. There is no question of permanence as there is n0 cure. The curative medicine does not act violently upon the economy, but establishes its action in a mild manner.

The method of treatment should be based on fixed principles

The third point is "upon principles that are at once plain and intelligible."
This means law - fixed principles which do not keep on changing from case to case.

This is not easy for somebody to understand who is not trained in the classical Homeopathy.

I am sorry; the scope of this article is too limited to elaborate on this point.

The possible Options for a Genital Herpes Cure

Let’s examine the methods used presently to treat Genital Herpes.

The anti-viral method of genital herpes cure.

As the cause of this disease is believed to be HSV 2 virus, there is an effort to suppress or kill the virus by antiviral treatment. This method achieves very temporary results. The worst part is the patient has to keep on taking the medicines or there will be a relapse.

Now a strong theory is emerging which tells HSV2 is responsible for dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

It is not a possibility. It is a reality that we will soon discover that long term suppression of any chronic disease will cause many more other complicated ones in addition to the above ones.

For immediate relief of bothering symptoms, one can resort to a medicine which gives relief. These agents should be mild and effective. We need not to keep on using them through out our lives. Dealing with these sort of symptoms  can be tricky  and Homeopathy  can  be a very effective and harmless option.

Herbal Cures are Better
In this method of genital herpes cures, we increase the vitality of the body so that the body immunity system takes care of the virus.

Here, we must use herbal ingredients as a tonic to the body and resort to healthy living. Here the practice is difficult but the results make it worth while.

For this system to be effective one must follow the following.

Maintain a regular life style
Take nutritional food and plenty of water, be a vegetarian
Exercise regularly
Take plenty of rest
Resort to Yoga, Pranayam or Meditation to minimize your stress level

It is difficult I know, but HSV-II infection is a more difficult situation. Like the cure of any other chronic disease, genital herpes cure is no easy task. Unless people lead an orderly life they will not be cured of their chronic diseases.

Genital Herpes Treatments with Herpeset

The trauma of a genital herpes infection can only be understood firsthand. It is like adding insult to injury when one finds out that there is no permanent cure to this disease.

Genital Herpes Treatments available around fall into two distinct categories, namely anti-viral and immuno-boosting. The former tries to weaken or suppress the functioning of the HSV-II virus where as the latter tries to boost the immunity system of the patients’ body. Each system has its pros and cons, but the suppressive system is surely more harmful for the patient than for the virus. When surely the virus adapts to this type of medication, the patient surely falls a victim to it.

Why Herpeset is a better option

Herpeset does not suppress

It does not suppress the disease like other anti-viral medication. It treats the symptoms homeopathically and hence is safer.

Herpeset is from a FDA registered company

With so many types of genital herpes treatments available in market, it becomes overwhelming to choose the genuine ones from the rest. If the company manufacturing the product is a FDA registered one, it becomes easy to trust.

It is a Homeopathic formula

Homeopathy is a principle of applying a medicinal substance to a disease, based on the totalities of the symptoms. The guiding principle is “Similia Similibus Curenteur” or “Like cures Likes”. The ingredients chosen for herpeset are capable of creating similar symptoms as genital herpes on healthy people if taken internally.

The medicinal substances are taken mostly from plants, animals, metals and minerals. Homeopathy uses a unique method called  ‘potentization’ to develop the dynamic power of a substance, which is carried by a medium of  100% alcohol. .  The physical quantity of the medicinal substance is negligible in a homeopathic preparation. You can test this by allowing the alcohol to evaporate from the vial of any homeopathic preparation (not the mother tinctures).  As the material quantity is negligible, there is no chance of  side effect.

Most of the products found in the market target very few symptoms where as  the ingredients used in Herpeset help address a wider spectrum of symptoms. With continued usage for four to six months, it offers complete relief with no recurring attacks.

Following are the nine constituents of Herpeset formula:

  • Apis Mellifica: The material is extracted from the stings of honeybees.  It helps relieve rosy hue on skin, swelling and puffing up of various parts, stinging pain and burning sensation, intolerance to heat and touch, soreness and fluid retention.

  • Arsenicum Album: the source is metallic Arsenic.  Arsenic has been used for centuries to treat tumors, malignant ulcers, skin diseases and infections, and burning sensations with blisters. It cures extreme restlessness.

  • Baptista Tinctoria: The source is wild indigo. It cures symptoms of  asthenic type, low fever, septic conditions of the blood and putrid conditions like typhoid. It works on reducing the inflammation associated with mouth ulcers.

  • Capsicum: The source is Cayenne Pepper.  It is a great curative for affection of the mucous membranes, so very useful for curing sores inside mouth and vagina. Capsicum is on FDA’s GRAS List of safe foods. It is a powerful pain killer  and it reduces inflammation.

  • Dulcamara:  The source is Woody Nightshade. It is also known as “Bittersweet” also.  It has a special affinity to skin and mucous membranes and it is very effective against itching on moist eruptions around the face and genitals. It is very effective for genital herpes in women.

  • Echinacea Augustifolia: The source is Purple Cone Flower.  Echinacea are purple flowers that look like daisies and are native to eastern and central Northern America. It cures cases of blood dyscrasia, symptoms of blood poisoning or general septic conditions. It is very effective in various STDs. It is used to ease redness and stinging of skin eruptions in genital herpes.

  • Nitricum Acidum:  The source is Nitric Acid. It is a great remedy for treating STDs especially Syphilis. It is very efficacious for treating sticking pains as from a splinter, blisters and ulcers in mouth and genitals especially vagina, fissures bleeding or otherwise in rectum or genitals. It also helps in drying up oozing sores and arrest further spread of lesions.

  • Pyrogenium:  Pyrogenium is a mixture of glycerin and artificial sepsin. It is a grea medicine for healing septic states and ulcers of mouth and genitals. 

  • Rhus Toxicondendron:  The source is Poison Oak. It is also  known as poison vine, poison ivy or mercury vine. It is a great curative for red elevated skin eruptions with itching and burning, which develop into vesicles or blisters. The symptoms are accompanied with restlessness. It is found in abundance in the woodlands of North America.

It is in market for quite some time and proven

Herpiset is in market for at least 10 years. It is very difficult for a product to stay in market for so long if it is not genuine.

Quite affordable

It seems the product is fairly priced in comparison to other products available in the market for the same purpose.

Money back guarantee

This product comes with a 90-day money back guarantee, so it is easy to try this product without much worry.

So many testimonials

Testimonials of customers about a product indicate the level of satisfaction a product can offer. In addition to this one can get an idea about the challenges the other patients face during genital herpes treatments.

Lastly, for genital herpes treatments, you have to begin somewhere and have to trust somebody and something. In my opinion, Herpeset  remains a better remedy if not the best, to start with. Rest all rests upon your ability to choose and desire to act decisively.

Genital Herpes Treatments

When you find out that you are infected with genital herpes, it can be humiliating. When you find out that genital herpes has no cure and you have no choice of curative treatments, it is plain devastating. The only course of action you can opt immediately for a future cure is that you can keep calm and lead a healthy life style to get your immune system up. People will definitely like you if you act normal instead of continuously freaking out. It seems to me to be the first step towards a safer and better course towards genital herpes treatment.

It's very important to keep the sores as clean and dry as possible to prevent other infections from developing. Also you don't want to infect another person in your family and among friends, so as part of your genital herpes treatments program, always wash your hands thoroughly after touching the area where sores are present.

If you are pregnant and about to deliver a baby, it’s very important that you inform the person delivering the baby. There are several complications when pregnant women get infected with genital herpes. The doctor may want to cease your oral genital herpes treatments during the period of pregnancy to avoid the side-effects of the medication on the fetus. When you discover you are pregnant and infected with genital herpes, notify the attending doctor immediately.

Normal course of treatment doctors prescribe for genital herpes are antiviral in nature. This type of treatment tries to suppress and weaken the virus, so that further outbreaks are delayed and the intensity of the secondary attacks is minimized. This type of treatment seems to be the only logical solution to every patient as there is no hope of a curative treatment in the horizon at present.  Let me warn you here, it has its share of long term repercussions.  My intension here is neither to frighten you nor to sound wise. I am only trying to state facts.

The antiviral treatments are only effective and have better results if taken before blisters and sores appear. Some genital herpes treatments are to be taken when the genital herpes symptoms are active, and some genital herpes treatments are to be taken all the time, even when the genital herpes symptoms are not active.
Once you develop blisters and ulcers, you might be prescribed anti viral cream to speed up the healing process; however, many medical practitioners believe that anti viral cream has very little effect. Some people find that bathing the affected area in warm salt water helps to relieve discomfort as well as dry out the blisters. Those people who suffer from repeated outbreaks of genital herpes will often be prescribed courses of potent antiviral medicines to try and reduce the number of attacks. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will also help to prevent further attacks of genital herpes.

Homeopathic and herbal remedies are available to people not wanting to have side effects caused by taking prescribed medications. Eating foods low in arginine may prevent recurring outbreaks; avoid peabuts, chocolate, sunflower seeds, soy and alcohol which are high in arginine. Aloe Vera can be taken orally or used topically as a natural genital herpes treatment. Drinking fruit juice and Aloe Vera juice in a small amount daily can help to control the number and severity of outbreaks.

Genital herpes treatments are just on the horizon, it may be years before any are available to consumers. We can even get some vaccine to totally prevent this infection. Getting the FDA approval is as cumbersome a process as inventing the medicine itself.

FDA Procedures

Before the FDA approves a drug, it must go through rigorous clinical trials, which are divided into three phases.

Phase I.  Researchers try to find out if the drug is safe for people to take. If the drug is deemed safe, it may go on to phase II.

Phase II. Researchers determine if the drug works as it should.

Phase III.   Trials, they expand their research to include more patients in more places. To conduct a clinical trial, scientists need people to participate voluntarily. Clinical trials often involve thousands of patients who volunteer to take the experimental drug.The FDA  and an independent review board carefully monitor every aspect of the trial. There are rules the researchers must follow to ensure that their work is not only scientifically correct, but also ethically sound.The study volunteers have clearly defined rights, such as the right to drop out of the trial at any time. While there are risks involved in joining a clinical trial, there may be benefits, too.

With suppressive treatments, all of us can do our daily activities and keep leading an apparently normal life, but we will always be conscious of the virus we carry. We will never be the same persons again; we were before being diagnosed with genital herpes.  It will be wise to resort to long term herbal treatments, which can strengthen our immunity system and gradually neutralize the strength of the virus.

Male Genital Herpes

Male Genital Herpes is not much different than the female genital herpes, as the virus of infection remains the same, HSV2,  in both the sexes. This disease being one which predominantly manifests in the genito-urinary systems, only looks different in different sexes, to the superficial eye.

Male genito-urinary system is rather simple anatomically in comparison to that of the female, so the manifestation in an average case looks simple, but is equally painful mentally and physically as in the case of a female.

Genital Herpes symptoms vary from one person to the other, but generally everybody gets the majority of the common symptoms. There may be some fortunate few, who have genital herpes, but never show any signs or symptoms. Nevertheless, they pass the infection to their partners. One can have herpes and not know it, but he/she will undoubtedly pass it on to someone who in a few weeks will manifest the primary symptoms of genital herpes.

In male genital herpes, the primary symptoms or the symptoms just after the infection are the following

•    Fever and flu like symptoms as HSV1 or HSV2 manifests its virus symptoms
•    Muscle aches and tiredness
•    Burning or smarting pain with urination, high colored urine
•    Red, inflamed patches on the shaft and glans of penis and scrotum
•    Pain around the rectal area, perineum and inner thigh with red bumps
•    The herpes lesions and blisters are generally come after the other symptoms

Genital Herpes In Men
Approximately a month after one has been sexually exposed, one may begin to start having the above symptoms.  He can also expect to start getting lesions around and on genital area. The first stage of genital herpes on penis is marked by severe itching and red elevated patches, These patches will be itchy and painful. It may be a simple sore pain or burning, smarting, stinging or occasional flying pains. These pains will be, in almost all cases aggravated by heat or covering. The smokers will invariably have more itching around genitals than non-smokers. The itching in some cases is so severe that in the process of itching the itch out, the individual damages the tissue around. Due to constant rubbing and itching, the penis may swell. Just during this time the lesions appear.  These lesions will eventually turn into fluid filled blisters and are painful. Soon the blisters will ulcerate and scab over the herpes sores. These symptoms are likely to last 2 to 4 weeks in an average man, but this duration can be short or long. People with very robust constitutions generally have strong reactions for a short period, and the sores then dry up. People with weaker constitutions generally have mild symptoms, but the symptoms linger for a longer period.

After the primary symptoms are gone, the person still retains the virus. Now he will be getting the secondary attacks depending upon the state of his health, food habits and emotional condition. People with a habit of consuming alcohol, regular non-vegetarian diets, high stress levels and emotional turmoil  in life are very susceptible to regular secondary attacks.

Here, men being emotionally less susceptible can handle the emotional aspect of genital herpes better than the women.  Men need to refrain from sexual intercourse or sexual activity until they are in the remission stages of a herpes outbreak. When they are ready to have sex again, it is imperative that they must tell the sexual partner in advance of the herpes infection. It is comparatively safe to use a latex condom or an acceptable substitute so that she does not get infected.

An outbreak of genital herpes brings a feeling of misery and perceived social stigma with it to any sex. But, it is in the better interest of the individual that he does not hide it.  It is imperative that once you notice the signs and symptoms of a possible herpes outbreak, you must seek the advice of a doctor.  Though genital herpes blood tests are not very accurate (usually tests have a 50/50 chance of accuracy), it always pays for an early diagnosis.

The Treatment Methods:

Just after the diagnosis, almost every patient starts the treatment with the anti-viral method. After realizing that this type of treatment has to go on for ever, many lose interest and change over to alternate methods.

The herpes virus is anaerobic and can not survive in an oxygen rich human body. Some natural methods use this principle effectively and succeed to stop the relapses altogether.
