I haven't had any out breaks for 2 months and no indications of an out break of Herpes.
As far as antibodies go..... I don't know if you will ever get rid of them. You may not have the virus but still carry the antibodies which indicates you have been exposed. You can be clear of the virus and still have the antibodies for Herpes.
The way I'm doing it is use the Dr Beck protocol for 6 months to start. Take a 1 month break and then go at it for another 2 to 6 months. It all depends on how long I can stand having my wrists electrocuted 2 hours a day! LOL!
Only way I will be absolutely sure is if I never get another out break.Right now I don't take any suppression supplements and eat drink all kinds of foods that have L-Arginine in them.
