Is there any natural treatment for herpes?
The Herpes virus has a tendency to hide in the nerve ganglion, making it difficult to treat. Most medicinal systems assert that herpes is incurable, since the attack cannot be resolved at the molecular level. However, the symptoms can be relieved and maybe even controlled with topical creams, ointments and anti-vitals. There are some natural therapies from Ayurveda and Resonance homeopathy as well.
Conventional treatment of Herpes
Medical practitioners generally prescribe antivirals such as acyclovir. Acyclovir works by inactivation or competitive inhibition of the virus's DNA Polymerase chain, or by terminating the growth of the viral DNA chain, thereby impeding further replication of the virus. Although the inhibition is effective, its efficacy varies for every individual and is not 100% effective in eliminating the virus. Bio-availability of acyclovir is pertinently low (15-30%), and could trigger certain side effects such as neurotoxicity and risk of renal failure. Other commonly prescribed antivirals include famciclovir and valacyclovir.
Natural Therapies for herpes
The Herpes virus, once in the body, remains hidden and dormant, and flares up whenever there is a decrease in immunity. Outbreaks tend to happen when the immune system is weak. Combating the virus directly makes the virus mutate itself, and eventually anti-virals become less effective.
Natural therapies for herpes are traditionally believed to work by making the body stronger, more resistant to viral attacks, creating an inhospitable environment for the virus, and essentially addressing the infection at the level of the elements that make up the human body to ensure freedom from outbreaks.
Natural therapies for herpes include Ayurvedic herbal extracts, resonance homeopathic formulations, natural supplements, advanced nutraceuticals and bio energetic imprints of the Herpes virus. Some of the prevalent natural treatment methods are: • Monolaurin - Also known as glycerol monolaurate, is a mono-glyceride that has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, in vitro. Monolaurin works by dissolving the viral envelope, allowing easy access to the viral DNA.
• Ayurvedic herbs and plant extracts that are believed to have strong anti-viral and immune boosting properties that make your body an inhospitable place for viral infections to proliferate. The best researched of these are herbs of the Hypericum family. Our Hyperisince formula contains extracts of Hypericum Mysorense and Hypericum Hookeranum.
• Homeopathic nosodes such as HRPZ Formula III & H-factor are potentizised bioenergetic impressions of the herpes virus that works on the homeopathic principle of "like cures like" and are believed to have the potential to coax a specific immune response. In an independent clinical trial conducted in France, herpes nosodes benefited 82% of the patients tested.
• Herbal and mineral formulations such as Alclearize and Alkoolize, along with Visarpa clay balances the five elements in your body, soothing your skin and provides relief to your blisters to promote quick healing.
Also employable, is the latest psychoacoustic technology (H soundscape) positively influencing the subconscious mind by subliminal messaging, to coax the body and the immune system to be inhospitable to the virus and reach a peaceful medium soothing the symptoms, and relieving pain.
