Daily Vitamins, Remedies for Herpes?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what vitamins/natural herbs/remedies everyone finds helpful?


I've heard echinacea is a great way to boost the immune system, but does it really help with OBs?


I was also told about soaking in a epson salt or baking soda bath. (which ive tried and works great)


and as far as something to put directly on the sores, Im still looking, I have very sensitive skin as it is and am a little scared of harsh substances.


please post what works for you, I'm always looking to ease the symptoms and pain.

hey T... aside from one tablet of valacyclovir 500mg daily, I take a two-capsule combo of Lysine 1000mg with Astragalus and Olive Leaf extract. The amino acid+herbs can be purchased online or at your local health food store. Quantum Health is the brand i choose. Astragalus is an anti-viral Chinese herb and Olive Leaf is another anti-viral. Lysine helps with acidity levels in your body and to keep Arganine (found in food, triggers episodes) under control.


i chose the herb supplement because I've noticed that if i stop taking the Valacyclovir, my episodes kick in.


although i've lived with HSV1 and 2, and i'm mostly asymptomatic, i still stress over shedding and passing it on :\ so i try my best at keeping the drinking/smoking to a very low minimum.


I hope some of this is helpful; if you have any other questions, write me.
