I also don't believe in validity of suppressive therapy for Herpes. I think suppression inevitably leads to disease expressing itself in other ways-ways that may be more devastating than conventional outbreaks- so protocol is not designed to suppress outbreaks altogether but rather to lengthen period of time between outbreaks and to shorten their duration and greatly lessen their severity. Some people have had their average duration of outbreaks reduced from 12-16 days to 1 to 2 days. Some people have been able to prevent most outbreaks from re-occouring
The protocol does not cure disease and does not stop all symptoms from appearing. Even those who have been able to stop most of their outbreaks have experienced some mild infrequent outbreaks. many less than one per year. Some far less than that.
After taking someone's case protocol is adjusted depending on many factors including strain of virus, frequency, location and duration of outbreaks. The relative health of client’s self-esteem and relative level of stressors. Whether client is male or female, length of time with disease , etc , etc, etc. For most protocol involves both internal and topical remedies. For all it involves combination therapy- I learned a great deal from studying how other natual practitioners were treating HIV , especially people who had both HIV and Herpes or who had drug-resistant HIV. In North American many people with HIV also have Herpes. Many of same substances that are effective for HIV are also effective for Herpes.
All of substances in protocol are from botanical sources. Many of substances I grow or wildcraft myself. Most of substances I tincture or homeopathically prepare myself. Melissa Officinalis is cornerstone of protocol. Lomatium Dissectum and Olive Leaf and Prunella Vulgaris are part of remedy for everyone. There are also two patented substances- one from a Marine Biologist and Bio-Chemist and one from a MD that are frequently prescribed herbally as part of protocol. The most common homeopathic remedies prescribed in protocol are Rhus-tox, Mezereum and Rananuculus, but there are over two dozen homeopathic remedies that I use depending on symptom picture and another dozen or so herbal substances. Again protocol is a combination therapy. Some of these substances are used internally, some externally.
I am not big on use of L-lysine. I never found it particularly effective and now research is showing long term use of L-lysine can actually lower your immune function. L-lysine is not part of protocol.
For most severe cases, A referral to a Hypnotherapist is part of protocol. Hypnosis has been clinically proven to be very effective in treatment of Herpes particularly when combined with other therapies. Lastly, I counsel people to make peace with disease. To not treat virus as some ghastly invader. But to somehow dialogue with virus and reach some kind of accommodation. The virus is an intelligent, motivated organism quite capable of surviving. The virus is just one of many many micro organisms homesteading in our bodies. I encourage people whenever possible to make an agreement with virus to allow virus to stay if virus agrees to cause as little disruption of host's life as possible. And above all else to not be ashamed of having Herpes. To have courage to speak about disease and not feel like a leper.
