My 'HSV negative' friend demonstrates the wide range of experiences and expressions of the virus. Tests look for specific antibodies to HSV, and she hasn’t produced any for a while. It is very rare, but many conditions can disappear, or appeared cured. It is the basis of many claims from alternative health practitioners. “This person had cancer and ate carrots only and is now cured. Carrots cure cancer”.
Unfortunately Science isn’t based on one off ambit claims. It is a double edged sword as trials cost millions of dollars and the money has to be put up by someone who expects to get more than he put up back. The good part is that the results of the trials involve large numbers of people. The trials for chemotherapy for example, are available for anyone to see, involves large numbers and that is why today it is used widely. I know numerous people who have been saved by it. Many would find your comments offensive as the emotional cost of cancer is massive; I’ve experienced it numerous times with those close to me.
An example of the weakness of the current pharmaceutical and medical trial system is the link to stomach ulcers and bacteria. There was reluctance, and of course no one to put up the money for trials, but the researchers continued on and these days Antibiotics treat successfully millions of people who would have previously suffered.
If you have an interest in this area and want to make a difference, the system you think is against you is easy to use against itself. Learn as much as you can, mainly through university courses in biomedicine and finance your own trials on small scales for large scale funding applications.
If you don’t have the interest in a course, magazines such as New Scientist and Scientific American are a good start to articles on health studies and from there find the journals these articles are sourced from.
All my knowledge of HSV2 is based in published peer review articles in medical journals. The language can be heavy but with a good dictionary, soon you will understand the terminology, and see how the conclusions are formed.
You could well come up with some unseen link in the treatment or even a cure to HSV that no one has seen because they are looking in the wrong direction. If calcium is the key, what are the mechanisms in the body that cause this, why do they break down? Continue on the work of DR Leek proposing the processes involved not just a statement of “this is so and everyone else is wrong”. Just because others are right it doesn’t exclude other views.
