I've had genital herpes for a couple of years now and since day one have tried anything I could get my hands on (not ozone therapy yet because I've not had the money to get my hands on that...yet) and have only recently found something that works for me. I've cleaned up my diet (raw/vegan as of a month and a half ago) and have done several liver flushes, etc...but I've only found one surefire way to keep the virus inactive. L-lysine, in mega-doses....any time I feel a little itching down there (prodromal symptom) I pop about four 500mg L-lysine pills and it calms down a ton. Oh, by the way, I'm under constant attack from the virus due to where it resides in the spine (around the 2nd and 3rd lumbar vertibrae)...because my 2nd and 3rd lumbar verts are always off. I used to be able to self-adjust my back and it would stop the virus from getting aggitated but now I just pop the lysine. I also used to try the DMSO, for days at a time, along with H2O2 (Hydrogen-Peroxid) (hydrogen peroxide) but all that did was burn a ton (however it would generally stop the virus until the next night). So basically, DMSO works but it will not eradicate the virus from your body (from my experience at least). Try mega-doses of L-lysine....I don't believe it could hurt you since it is only an amino acid. Anywho, hope that helped some!
