The Herpes family of viruses includes Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) 1 and 2, Epstein Barre Virus (EBV), shingles or Chicken Pox (Varicella zoster), Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and some newly discovered ones.
Herpes simplex virus 1 is the virus that breaks out around or inside the mouth. We call it a cold sore because it often follows a cold in childhood. As children, we may get HSV 1 once or twice each winter. When they come more often the child's immunity is low. Adults who get repeated attacks also have low immunity (this is obvious from a blood test where the white blood cell count is less than 5,000 per cu mm).
Herpes simplex virus 2 breaks out in the genital area. It is often blamed on promiscuous sex but I believe it has quite different origins.
I believe the virus is introduced to our bodies by another large parasite. Perhaps it is pinworms, or Ascaris. Perhaps it is a tapeworm stage, picked up from dust and dirt.
I have some evidence that it is released from dog tapeworm stages when these are being killed by your immune system. It is probably the same tapeworm stage as releases the Adenovirus (cold virus) which would explain why children frequently get "cold sores" during or after a cold. (See Curing The Common Cold)
Nevertheless, you would not get sick from these viral releases unless your immunity was lowered.
Herpes lives in your nerve centers (ganglia) and it is from here that you can be attacked after the initial infection. Evidently your immune system can destroy them as quickly as they emerge. But a meal of aflatoxin or other moldy food suddenly "gags" your white blood cells and lets a viral attack happen.
The viruses can also be "triggered" which lets them out of hibernation (latency) to multiply and travel along the nerve fiber to the skin. Triggers are things that put these nerve centers to work: sudden cold and heat, trauma from chafing and friction. Never drink water with ice cubes in it. Never eat hot soup with a metal spoon. Don't tweeze hairs.
Begin your prevention program by raising the immunity of your skin; this means removing all toxins from the skin. Use only natural lotions, softeners, cleansers on your skin made from recipes in this site. Health food brands are not superior. This will get rid of nickel, chromate, titanium, zirconium, aluminum, and benzalkonium from your skin and probably your whole body! Do laundry with borax and washing soda, only, to eliminate commercial detergent as a source, too.
As soon as you feel that warning tingle or sensation of Herpes, zap or use a NEORife at 293 and 345 KHz (HSV 1) or 360 and 355 KHz (for HSV 2). Immediately take a cayenne capsule and 8 lysine tablets (500 mg each). The cayenne slows down travel of the virus along the nerve.
Attacks probably occur when the triggers act at the same time as an immune drop occurs. Immune drops happen frequently due to eating moldy food. Of course, mercury in amalgam tooth fillings keeps immunity chronically lowered. Many persons report they stopped breaking out with Herpes 1 after replacing their amalgams. Stopping wearing tight synthetic underpants helps reduce Herpes 2 out breaks.
When you get an outbreak, mop up a droplet of the blister fluid and prepare it as a specimen for yourself. If you search for it in your white blood cells when your attack is over, it will not be found because it is in hiding inside your nerve cells. Zapping does not reach them inside your own cells. Nevertheless, you can totally eliminate them by repeated zapping provided you kill them at their earliest warning. Evidently, they haven't multiplied yet, so gradually their numbers go down.
Even after you have been Herpes free for a long time, stick to your preventive principles. Avoid the trigger foods, peanuts, and chocolate, or be ready to zap. Avoid cold wind or direct sunlight on your face. Don't eat abrasive or acid foods like popcorn, nuts, toast, crackers, candy, citrus. Although you may stop the virus in its tracks by zapping, healing the lesion takes time. Keep the skin softened with a cornstarch or sodium alginate recipe (see Recipes).
A lysine mush helps too: crush a lysine table with a large wooden spoon, add a pinch of vitamin C powder and a pinch of zinc oxide. Save part of this mixture for later use. Wet a small bit of it with a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply to lesions.
Bazezew Hailey, 38, started breaking out in the genital area after a period of antibiotic use. She was started on lysine (500 mg, 8 a day), cayenne caps (one with each meal). She was to fill her prescription for ZoviraxTM from her doctor, though. By the time she had it filled, the next day, her lesion had stopped enlarging, and she could reduce her supplements. Her skin was full of mercury, lead, strontium, aluminum. Her white blood cell count was low, showing low immunity. Her ratio of segmental to lymphocyte white blood cells was low, evidence for a chronic viral condition. Her bone marrow contained lead and radon. She stopped using toothpaste (strontium), salt, deodorant, detergents (aluminum). She got the metal out of her mouth and eliminated her radon problem by opening crawl space vents. The lead source was never found, but after she moved to a new house it went away. Herpes 2 stayed away. A year later she still hadn't opened the ZoviraxTM bottle.
