According to latest herpes research data over 110 millions people in the United States have been diagnosed with herpes simplex virus-1, herpes simplex virus-2, or both. Every year another 250 thousands people get infected with herpes. Once the herpes virus enters a body it goes into nerves, where it may stay for a long period of time without any symptoms or activity, and in some cases herpes virus never awakens. Many studies have shown that herpes outbreaks and other symptoms may be caused by stress related factors such as: poor health condition, low immune system, stress, sunburns, surgical procedures, trauma.
One of the biggest concerns is that because of the fact that herpes virus sometimes remains in a person’s body, and often without their knowledge, it can be easily passed to another person. Herpes simplex virus-1 can be passed by having sexual contact with someone who has active cold sores. Contaminated personal items such as: utensils, glasses, razors, telephones or even towels may be a cause. Herpes simplex virus-2 can be passed by having unprotected sex with someone who has or doesn’t have active cold sores or blisters. Using condoms decreases that possibility but not significantly, because herpes simplex virus can be released from the skin and contaminate the partner.
Recent herpes study in Cape Town, Africa showed, that the constant use of vaginal gel containing tenofovir reduces the risk of getting infected with herpes simplex virus-2 by 51%.
Herpes simplex virus is a serious disease and if left untreated may cause serious damage. Symptoms of herpes simplex virus-1 include sores and blisters in oral area. In some cases it may infect central nerve system which leads to death in 70% of cases. Herpes simplex virus-2 can cause painful genital sores, lower immune system and lead to different diseases and complications such as: fever, swollen glands and severe headaches. Latest study conducted by Hugo Lövheim from Sweden showed that herpes simplex virus increases a
person’s chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease in the future by 50%. If herpes simplex virus is diagnosed early then the antiviral therapy could lead to positive treatment outcome. Professor Gil Lee and his colleagues at University College Dublin have made a great breakthrough when they discovered a new and more efficient way to detect herpes virus on early stages. Even though there is still a lot of work that needs to be done in order to complete the research, Professor Lee and his team are certain that this study can be used to improve herpes treatment in the future.
Herpes Treatment And Possible Cure
Most popular medications prescribed by doctors only deal with herpes symptoms and shorten the outbreak period by one day in average. They also cause side effects in the long run. Recent study showed, that the recovery for people with herpes simplex virus-1 and herpes simplex virus-2 who used raw honey was respectively 43% and 59% faster than for people who used acyclovir. Pain and crusting were also reduced significantly compared to the results that were achieved by people who used drugs and creams.
Clinical study using homeopathic medicines that involved 53 subjects with genital herpes showed great results. This study followed subjects up to four years. People achieved improvements in symptoms and less likely had recurring herpes outbreaks.
Another research was conducted by Dr Christine Buehler (who suffered from herpes in the past) and Dr. Ken Languin, and involved 479 clinical trials. 27,442 people were successfully treated for herpes simplex virus. Dr Buehler’s research is based on a natural approach and she claims that her program can cure oral and genital herpes symptoms, control outbreaks and even prevent the virus from replicating in less than a month. According to Dr Buehler, her method helps separate protein ICP-47 from the nerve cells and lets body’s defense mechanisms eliminate herpes virus. Dr Buehler recently published an e-book and shared her “Herpes Cure” program, which works for both men and women and has no age restrictions (e-book is also covered by a 60-day no questions asked money back guarantee).
