I suffer from pretty severe cold sores (outbreaks every 4 to 5 days) that were finally brought under control when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
I want to do a full body cleanse, so I started out using Oxypowder for the bowel cleanse. After 4 days of taking 4 capsules, I started getting terrible herpes breakouts. Literally was sprouting new breakouts daily.
As soon as I stopped using the Oxy, the breakouts stopped. I was having a little bowel difficulty and took some a few weeks after this - 4 capsules for one time only - and with in hours had a cold sore breakout.
So - just a word caution to those with herpes who want to use Oxypowder .
