Doc told me I need to have 10 episodes in a year and there not lot safety data on 1 gm as prophylactic treatment.


if you have an outbreak on 1 gm daily, what dose do you take for the outbreak?

I had an outbreak every 3 months after diagnosis.  But last summer, I was getting them every 2-4 weeks, so I hooked up with a dr. who treats with natural remedies.  He mostly works with cancer patients but had an extensive list of other issues he works on.

The program I was put on was for 6 months....24 capsules per day....8 before each meal.  It wasn't cheap (about $250/month), but, to me it was worth it.  As of today, I've been outbreak free for 128 days.  What happens is our immune goes down; that's what he helped me with.

I'm not supposed to have any more outbreaks; if I do, he will put me on another program.  If this is something you're interested in, find a natural doctor in your area who works with HSV.  You have nothing to lose right now.  If you can't find one, let me know.
