Herbal Treatment For Genital Herpes - Fight Herpes Naturally

Author: Adriana Sands

If you've recently been diagnosed with genital herpes, you know it can be a harrowing experience. The implications of the disease on your social life, love life, your self esteem and sense of worth can be devastating. This, combined with the fact that there is no cure for the virus, can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety.

Something you might not know is, genital herpes is a very controllable, manageable condition, and with the right treatment you can live a normal and happy life. Despite what you might have heard, you do not need to rely on expensive and side-effect ridden prescription drugs to control herpes and avoid outbreaks. Herbal treatments for genital herpes are not only very effective, they are very easy to obtain, very cost effective and can really give you a new lease on life, despite having this nasty virus.

The first thing to do is a small lifestyle adjustment. One thing that people with genital herpes must avoid is stress because this is the number one trigger of genital herpes outbreaks. Ways to avoid stress include medication or relaxation therapy, plenty of exercise, and setting aside a small amount of time every day to do something you enjoy, be it reading a book with a cup of tea, participating in a hobby, or just relaxing in your favourite manner.

If you want to be a bit more proactive in dealing with the disease then you should consider taking a herbal or homeopathic treatment for controlling your symptoms.

When it comes to herbal treatments for genital herpes, there are a lot to choose from. Honey, tea tree oil, aloe vera, red marine algae and eucalyptus are effective topical genital herpes remedies especially during outbreaks. These herbal remedies can help soothe pain and minimize the inflammation associated with outbreaks. The advantage with using a herbal treatment for genital herpes is that they are generally safer to use compared with prescription drugs, and have no side effects.

There are also supplements you can take to prevent outbreaks from occurring, such as Lysine. Lysine is a number one opponent of herpes outbreaks, and helps prevent the virus from multiplying enough to cause an outbreak.

Beat Eczema

You can get all the above ingredients separately from health food stores, or you can get a concentrated homeopathic blend from a naturopath or homeopathic doctor, which maximizes the convenience of dosage and ensures you get the right amounts of each treatment.

Several fruits and vegetables are also effective in controlling the symptoms associated with genital herpes. Cranberries, broccoli, cabbage and Brussels are just the some of the foods that individuals can integrate into their diet more because of their beneficial effect in reducing symptoms and outbreaks.

Remember, herbal treatment for genital herpes is only part of the fight. You need to keep your immune system and body in tip-top condition if you want to eliminate symptoms from your life completely. This means getting plenty of sleep, avoiding stress, getting regular exercise and eating a healthy balanced diet.

    I found out my boyfriend has herpes, are there any herbal remedies that can stop the outbreaks?

    • stascia says:

      no herbal remedies available. herpes is caused by a virus, so anything herbal wont stop the virus from growing. you would want to go to a doctor, who can prescribe something like zovirax (acyclovir) to lessen the duration of the outbreak and can hel pto lessen the chance of future outbreaks if t aken regularly.

    Herpes, has herbal remedies, why is orthodox approach against this approach?

    • myherpescure says:

      The herbal and natural remedies have had a encouraging rate of success and work very well for many people afflicted with the virus.

      You cannot patent natural ingredients and therefore you cannot make money or add any value by marketing under a Pharma brand.

      Several of these alternatives are described in the source page below.

      HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR SKIN DISEASES (Eczema, Allergic Dermatitis, Uriticaria, Skin Allergy, Psoriasis, Herpes etc)

      Note. Skin affections ares merely local manifestations of some constitutional affection. They represent the effort of nature to get rid of some poison in the system, congenital or acquired, which effort should not be suppressed but abetted.

The symptoms calling for it are very clear; there are moist scabby eruptions on the scalp, face, bends of joints, between fingers and behind the ears.

Indications are a dry and impoverished skin, cold hands and feet. Psoriasis is a pregrowth symptom of cancer.

    For those of you already infected with Genital Herpes, what steps do you take to keep from spreading it?
    A few months back, my now ex boyfriend cheated on me and infected me with Genital Herpes. I am now beginning a new relationship with an individiual, and I am just curious as to different steps people take besides wearing condoms during sexual intercourse to keep from spreading this disease to my future partners. I have heard that there are herbal remedies that work to help prevent the transfer, as well as other things you can do. Any information would be greatly appreciated :)

    • LINDSEY S says:

      Do let your partner know of your status if they don’t know all ready then you should tell them.
      You should know condoms don’t do much to protect against genital herpes, they don’t cover all of the areas of the genitals that herpes can affect. If there is some thing going on out side of where the condom covers then you still have a chance of passing herpes to your partner. You can use condoms in between out breaks and take antiviral therapy / medication regularly.
      You should think about going on antiviral medication and taking it regularly. This can help prevent you from spreading herpes to your partner, even in between out breaks (condoms can only do so much when it comes to herpes).
      Herbal remedies are more used to help prevent out breaks, they don’t do much to help prevent transferring it.
      Get to know your symptoms and tell your partner if you think your getting an out break so you can avoid having sex until it’s completely over.
