If we are to believe conventional medicine, there is no cure for herpes. They offer antiviral medications to reduce the active outbreaks of genital herpes, as well as reduce transmission to a sexual partner and there are also vaccines currently in clinical trials(CDC).

However, did you know that there is an effective, powerful and natural herpes treatment available? Many people don’t know that optimizing the immune system and administering ozone therapy can reduce herpes outbreaks. Let’s explore what herpes is, its symptoms, causes, and conventional and natural herpes treatment.

What is Herpes?

Herpes is a virus that may remain dormant, or may cause a flare up in the body. There are two main strains.

Although there are eight strains in the herpes virus family including Epstein-Barr virus, we are going to focus on the two most common forms of the herpes simplex virus (HSV).

Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), the form of herpes called oral herpes is transmitted through saliva. Many people with oral herpes were likely infected during childhood or adolescence through sharing a cup, straw, eating utensil, piece of gum, toothbrush, or through kissing.

Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), also known as genital herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the instances of genital herpes in the U.S. is over 1 in 6 persons aged 14-49. It is also about twice as prevalent in women than in men.

Herpes Symptoms

HSV-1 or oral herpes can cause cold sores or fever blisters in the mouth and on and around the lips. It may also cause genital and rectal blisters.

HSV-2 (genital herpes) can also cause blisters or herpetic lesions to form around the genitals, rectum, and the mouth. When these lesions break open they leave sores that can take 7 days to 4 weeks to heal. Other symptoms may be:

  • A burning sensation while urinating
  • Bad smelling genital discharge
  • Bleeding between periods in women
  • Symptoms before an outbreak such as:
    • Genital pain
    • Shooting pain or tingling in the butt, hips, or legs

During the infected person’s first outbreak, they may have other flu-like symptoms such as:

  • Headache
  • Body aches
  • Fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes

People with genital herpes may have several outbreaks in their lifetime as the virus stays with them for life, unless properly treated with natural herpes treatment. Subsequent flare ups may be less severe over time.

It is also common for people with oral or genital herpes to have no symptoms, or only mild symptoms. Many people who carry either form of the virus do not even know they have it. This is because either they have no symptoms, or the blisters are mistaken for a different skin problem such as an ingrown hair or a pimple.

    What Causes Herpes and How is it Transmitted?

    Oral herpes or HSV-1 is transmitted through saliva. During oral sex, HSV-1 may be transmitted to the genitals and cause a genital HSV-1 infection.

    Genital herpes or HSV-2 is transmitted through contact with herpes blisters, genital secretions, and mucosal surfaces. Both viruses may also shed from mucosa or skin that does not appear to be infected or having symptoms. (CDC)

    To prevent contraction of genital herpes, a person must abstain from vaginal, anal, or oral sex with anyone who has HSV-2. To do this you can abstain from sex altogether, or only have sex in a mutually monogamous relationship where neither partner has genital herpes.

    The use of condoms may reduce the risk of contracting genital herpes, however the lesions can be present in areas not protected by the condom, and there do not need to be lesions present for the virus to shed. Other ways to prevent or reduce the spread of the virus may be to take medication every day to prevent an outbreak, or not engage in oral, anal, or vaginal sex during an outbreak.

    Conventional Treatment for HSV1 & HSV2

    Conventional treatment uses anti-virals and other potentially toxic drugs, which the person usually stays on long term. These drugs have stated negative side effects.

    acyclovir (Zovirax) stomach upset
    loss of appetite nausea vomiting diarrhea

    We know that toxic substances have the ability to damage the mitochondria within the cells. Mitochondiral damage is responsible for its own litany of health conditions.

    Thankfully, there is a better, more natural approach!

    Treating HSV1 & HSV2 Naturally

    At LifeWorks Wellness Center we take a whole-body approach to restoring your health and wellness. When dealing with HSV1 or HSV2, one of the first things we have to look at is the immune system. Getting the immune system functioning optimally is the first target, since your immune system is your best defense and will prevent

    the virus from becoming active and therefore reduce the number of outbreaks.

    In this step, you will receive a functional evaluation to assess your overall health and identify any hidden or pre-existing conditions which are preventing your immune system from keeping this condition suppressed. These are usually things such as food allergies, heavy metal toxicity, lyme disease, and other factors

    Once these conditions are ruled out and handled, we create an individually tailored treatment plan which commonly includes ozone therapy.

    Contact Us Today about HSV Treatment

    LifeWorks cannot promise a cure of herpes, but with the combination of ozone therapy and improving your immune system, health improves and outbreaks are usually less frequent if at all and also less symptomatic.
