Getting Rid of Herpes: The Best Natural Remedies

girl-and-window

The herpes simplex virus (HSV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STI). Unlike other forms of herpes such as chickenpox that stay in the body, HSV can be eradicated from your system if the right steps are taken. If you still have sores that result from HSV, these indicate that the virus is still present in your body.

 

What is HSV?

If you have HSV-1, commonly known as oral herpes, sores usually appear on your lips, chin, gums, inside your cheeks, or the roof of the mouth. HSV-2, genital herpes, commonly results in open sores in the genital region (penis, vagina, buttocks, or anus).

Cold sores or fever blisters are common and are the primary outbreaks of HSV-1. More than 50% of adult Americans are infected with HSV-1, and both HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be transmitted when there is direct contact between the infected area on one person and broken skin or mucus on an uninfected person.

 

Symptoms of HSV-1 & 2:

A person will experience symptoms 2-12 days after being infected with the virus, but most people experience symptoms after 4 days. HSV-1 patients commonly have sores around the mouth, and HSV-2 patients usually experience sores around the genital region. Symptoms include:

  • Oral Sores (on the lips, chin, gums, inside of the cheeks, or roof of the mouth)
  • Genital Sores (on the penis, vagina, inside the vagina, anus, or buttocks)
  • Pain, Burning, or Itching (at the infection site before sores appear)
  • Fever
  • Body Aches
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes
  • Pain When Swallowing
  • Painful Throat with Possible Ulcers (rare, but this can affect people in their 20s)
  • Problems Urinating

Natural Remedies for HSV:

  • It’s a good idea to avoid eating the L-arginine amino acid, which can be found in chocolate, peas, or nuts and seeds, as it can promote herpes outbreaks. Switching to a more plant-based diet can also be beneficial to your overall health because you’ll be getting the purest forms of nutrients from fruits and vegetables. By avoiding meat products, dairy products, sugar, salt, alcohol, and tobacco you can help rid your body of the virus.
  • Oil of oregano is a great natural remedy to combat HSV. Oil of oregano has a compound called carvacrol, which can help kill the cell membranes that herpes bacteria hide behind. You can take drops of oil of oregano orally, which is the best way because then it enters your central nervous and blood systems.
  • You can help remedy your oral sores by using baking soda. Dip a cotton ball in baking soda, dab it on the infected area, and that should help stop itchiness and dry out oozing blisters. To avoid contamination, do not dip the cotton ball back in the baking soda box.
  • Herbal teas can help reduce the swelling of open sores. Turmeric, cinnamon, chamomile, ginger, or goldenseal teas have incredible anti-viral and anti-inflammatory benefits that can decrease swelling and help stop the itchiness.
  • Consider taking part in our Anti-Viral Cleanse, which is designed to help naturally rid your body of parasites and viruses. You can repeat the Anti-Viral Cleanse to keep lowering your viral load until you can get the virus out of your system.
  • Echinacea has powerful anti-viral properties and it is known for boosting the immune system. You can consume Echinacea in the form of herbal capsules, tea, or use its extract to help decrease symptoms of HSV-1 or HSV-2.

 

Both HSV-1 & 2 can be flushed out of the body if the right steps are taken. Eating antiviral foods like garlic, ginger, Echinacea, turmeric, beets, or lemons can help rid your body of the virus. Cleansing is the most effective remedy because it can completely rid toxins from your major eliminative channels.

    Q: I have sores that are on my tongue and don't go away. The first doctor I went to said cold sores (herpes) but the second doctor said it was not cold sores. Nothing seems to work and the sores are constantly on my tongue and never go away. It has been a year since they appeared. I did the FULL BODY DETOX but did not have the money to do the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. What should I do since these sores are in my mouth and since I am getting a positive and negative blood test report from doctors?

    A:

    USE THE ORAL ANTISEPTIC SPRAY!!!!! VISIT OUR ON-LINE STORE!

    Q: Hi. I am very interested in pursuing your detox (both the full and anti-viral, one after the other as it is recommended) however I am a little bit confused. In the actual product description, it states that all other products available only "manage" viruses such as herpes, meaning that the virus still remains in the body. It states that Dherbs helps to eradicate all viruses. It also states in the Q and A it is guaranteed that one will test negative for herpes after the treatment (if it is followed correctly). However, all the articles on your website talk about changing one's lifestyle etc to help CONTROL the virus and therefore prevent outbreaks and that the anti-viral kit can help in the preventing outbreaks (but again that means the virus will remain in the system). SO....I am wondering what the actual potentials of this product and regimen are. If followed with the raw food diet for 6 weeks (3 weeks on the detox and 3 weeks on the anti-viral) will the herpes virus be completely eradicated from one's system so that medical tests will show negative results OR is this regimen just another way of managing the virus, while having it still remain in the system.

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse and the Anti-Viral Cleanse can help cleanse and detoxify your entire system to help you heal from Herpes. Every person responds differently to the cleanse, depending on the toxicity of your body.

    Q: I have finished the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Hopefully, the herpes virus is completely gone. I feel great! Now, what is the next step? Should I take any of those products as a regular maintenance? Also my face is breaking out like crazy even around my mouth. What should I do?

    A:

    Focus on maintenance! Maintenance formulas include: ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA, BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , IMMUNE SUPPORT Formula, and RAINFOREST TONIC TEA. Keep the diet healthy as possible - this is key! For the mouth breakout: HEALING SKIN OIL

    Q: I am curious about the anti-viral regimen and how exactly it works on viruses. In the product description it states that every other product only "suppresses" the herpes type 1 and 2 virus, therefore having the virus remain hiding in the cells and not providing a cure. If one undergoes the regimen, following the diet etc., will the virus be completely eradicated from one's system? Or again, does this regimen only suppress the virus as well? P.S. IF it does eradicate the virus completely, will it be eliminated after the 20 day period?

    A:

    Herpes can be eradicated after completion of both kits (Full Body Cleanse and Anti Viral Kit) with strict adherence to our dietary regimen. Both cleanses detoxify the blood and the other eliminative channels to help flush viruses, infections, and toxins out of your system.

    Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, our products and cleanses work to heal naturally from the inside-out. This means there are no harmful side effects, and does not mask any symptoms. Holistic healing can eliminate viruses and allow you to live freely and confidently.

    Q: I've come to your website many times in the past few days and I would like to start ordering some products to begin detoxing my body and to rid my system of the herpes simplex virus and any other std that may be lingering within. I was diagnosed with this virus on 12/5, but since then I have been given amoxicillin by the doctor. After doing some research, I bought some Olive Leaf Extract, L-Lysine and Echinacea with goldenseal. I feel a lot better, especially since I began to stop eating certain foods, like cheese, pork, peanuts and chocolate. I've also been maintaining a positive attitude and believing that I will be free of this virus. I am extremely interested in starting a cleansing ritual beginning at the end of the month, but at current, I would just like to begin with a supplement you would recommend to cleanse my blood, my genital and vaginal area. Your recommendations will be deeply appreciated.

    A:

    If I had to recommend one product before your Anti-Viral Kit for you, it would be Dherbs STD-RID formula.

    Q: Hello, I have the herpes virus that occasionally causes me to get a cold sore about once a year. I eat very healthy i.e. no dairy, fried foods, red meat etc. What do you recommend as a cure for this virus. I don't want to take something that will make the virus continue to stay dormant in my blood stream but something that will completely kill it out of my system so I never have an outbreak again. I'm certain there is a remedy that exists. My belief is that God has created a natural cure for every disease. Can you help, thanks?

    A:

    We have a very potent Anti-Viral Kit & Regimen that can help eradicate herpes from the body (especially if you perform the Full Body Cleanse before or after the Anti-Viral kit) and build the immune system to prevent future outbreaks.

    Also, read our article entitled "Genital Herpes" under "Articles" on our site.

    Q: I purchased and fully used your ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Unfortunately I don't feel as if it has eliminated the current virus within my body. I was diagnosed with Herpes about 8 years ago. Since using your product I have not had an outbreak, however I still have the symptoms that accompany it. This would be the aching in the legs, hip, or pelvic area. I am in dire need to relieve myself from this virus once and for all. What is your take on this and is there something else that I must do?

    A:

    If you feel you have not eliminated the virus then you still have it only because you claim it. Your symptoms are not those of genital herpes but something else. Clearly not herpes! To really get my take on matters I suggest you schedule a 1-hour consultation. Please read all 4 herpes articles on our site

    Q: I'm currently on the Full Body Cleanse. It's my 10th day. :) I have developed some sores and tenderness in my mouth. Is this from the cleanse?

    A:

    The mouth sores and tenderness is NOT from the detox, but are symptoms of your body's healing, which the detox has greatly initiated.

    You see, the herbs don't dictate where the emphasis goes (as far as healing goes), the body does. The body knows all the areas of your body that need addressing (emotionally as well as physically).

    Internal skin is skin just as well and the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, so your body will use whatever channel is available to eliminate waste from the body.

    The mouth is part of the alimentary canal so this situation with your mouth only and simply denotes that much healing is taking place in your colon.

    Mouth sores are only temporary but they do dictate that the mouth's pH balance is too acidic. The mouth is naturally acidic, but it's a healthy acidic (6.8 pH)

    .

    To facilitate healing of the mouth sores, gargle with a little tea tree oil (2-3 drops), hydrogen peroxide (half a teaspoon), and sea salt (half a teaspoon) in some warm water, throughout the day.

    Q: If I have herpes symptoms could I take just the virus cleanse by itself to get it out my system, opposed to taking the other products as well.

    A:

    If you have herpes like symptoms you should go get tested for the STD before starting the anti-viral cleanse. In the meantime we suggest starting with the Full Body Cleanse to eliminate the waste and toxins that can be contributing to the condition. After doing the full body cleanse your body will be in a better state to heal from the virus if you are suffering from one. We would suggest doing the Anti-Viral Cleanse followed by the 10 Day Electric Greens Combo Regimen if you test positive for virus.

    Q: I would like to ask you some advice. At this moment I have herpes outbreaks and warts (they are inside my vagina). I want to do the full body cleanse, then anti-viral kit and finally the female cleanse. At this moment I begin to take products from neveran outbreaks (oxygen water). So if I begin to use your products will oxygen water reduce the effectiveness of your products? After all these kits what kind of products I should use after that to ensure no outbreaks? I am very curious about your products and I hope they will help me run away from all this.

    A:

    Oxygen water won't interfere with any of our herbal formulas. As a matter of fact, drinking oxygen water may help while doing all 3 Dherbs kits you mentioned (Full Body Cleanse, Anti-Viral, and Female Cleanse).

    After the kits, we recommend that you take Anti-Viral formula and Tea, Blood and Lymphatic formula, and Yoni Cleanser as maintenance and prevention.

    Q: I just finished your FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN). I do feel much better however I am still having a constant discharge from my penis foreskin. Dr's who have looked at it say it is not herpes but if not then what? It has discharged since mid November and has not stopped. There is no pain associated with it directly but whenever a get tingling in my feet it feels that that as is the source of the problem. Someone told me they had tingling because of acidic body but then what about this discharge? Is it an infection? All normal STD's were negative but after hearing what the Dr's said I didn't get a blood test. Again I want to say that I think your products are fantastic and have made me much healthier. I did eat some sushi with brown rice, avocado, and kim chi after the kit and woke up the next morning with a headache and sore throat. Also I felt a throb under one of my arms which I had prior to taking the anti-viral kit. Maybe a lymph node? I had a number of raw food meals at a restaurant that used dehumidifier and nuts or seeds in most of their things and would also feel the tingling sometimes after eating this. I have read on some sites that herpes can be set off by nuts so I'm wondering. Anyway where should I go now to completely clear my body of any of these penis sensations discharges and tingling? Also I wanted to say that wow I have had a lot of mucus coming out of my body and my guess is there is probably more that wants to come.

    A:

    Your solution is not in anything external such as the kits (FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN). They only assist you. Your chronic problem means further work. Keep detoxing, eating a strict diet, etc. until the discharge goes away. Also, you are being compelled by your body to reassess and revise some things pertaining to your sexual belief system. The problem is with the penis so the underlying problem is pertaining to your sexuality. Tell you what: concentrate on your colon and reproductive system. Alternate between the FBD and the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE until you get your results. Healing requires patience! But deal with the underlying problem! What have you been doing sexually or what are your beliefs pertaining to sex? Are they healthy? You have a discharge because something (belief, thought) needs to be discharged.

    Q: Hello, I want to purchase your ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA for my herpes, but before I do let me give you some background. I have had this since I was 19 and I'm 21 now. I have outbreaks every month around my menstrual cycle. Also, I'm constantly applying abreva to my lips several times daily. I take valtrex but it doesn't help. I have changed my diet and nothing helps. Is there anything else you recommend taking with this anti-viral product? Thank you I hope to hear from you soon.

    A:

    I suggest you read our â€GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)†article on our site under Articles. If you feel nothing helps, check your MENTALITY. Doubt cancels out healing. So does worrying and skepticism. Read the article â€THINK YOURSELF HEALTHY†You can heal, Beloved. Changing your diet, did you go all raw foods and give up meat and dairy products? Around your menses, drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA. Bathe in hot water and sea salt (2 boxes) and add in 2-3 drops of essential oil of Clary sage and Geranium (available at Whole Foods). There's so much you can do! At some point, perform our FULL BODY DETOX followed by our ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN.

    Q: Well, I took the FULL BODY DETOX and the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I was just told by the nurse I have the antibiotics for the herpes simplex virus (HSV). I was disappointed to find that out. I thought the herbs were going to be the cure. I have no outbreaks. However, I feel burning in my buttocks often.

    A:

    Why did you think the herbs would be a cure? Did you get this from one of our articles such as "GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)", "IS GENTIAL HERPES REALLY CURABLE?" or "HERPES OUTBREAK ON THE BUTTOCKS"? Did you read these articles? Maybe you never read them. How did you come to the conclusion that the herbs would be a cure for herpes?

    Q: I was wondering if anyone has actually tested negative for viral infections (such as herpes or aids) and whether it is a normal result to be considered "virus free" after completion of your detox. Or is it is just like any other detox where it "may help u feel better" by releasing certain toxins but really leaving the virus in your system.

    A: Yes, in many cases, after completion of the Full Body Cleanse or the Anti-Viral Cleanse, there are many customers that are completely virus-free. It is important to stick to the guidelines of the Cleanse in order to achieve the best results.
