According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of six people in the United States aged between 14 to 49 has genital herpes caused by the HSV-2 infection (the herpes simplex virus often responsible for genital herpes). Though this figure is daunting and terrifying no one wants to talk about herpes, much less encounter it.
The pharmaceutical industry claims there’s no cure for herpes, I’m sure for them a cure is too much of an economic loss, it’s much more “fiscally” responsible to sell drugs that somewhat “alleviate symptoms”. Much like they claim epilepsy is incurable, but it can be cured with magnesium. See my article “Can The Cure For Epilepsy Be Simply Magnesium?”
By the way, epileptic drugs are one of the top selling prescriptions in the USA.
This is the reason why we all have to take health into our own hands because the pharmaceutical industry is only concerned with making billions at the expense of everyone’s health.
Genital herpes is an STD that is contracted during sexual contact, usually spread through fluids on the genitals or mouth. You can get genital herpes with or without a condom. Condoms merely lower your risk, according to the CDC. You can even get it if the other person doesn’t have symptoms or visible sores, since the virus sheds about 10 percent of the time for asymptomatic HSV-2 infections, according to a 2011 study published in the Journal of American Medical Association.
I wrote an article on how to cure herpes with Oil of Oregano, but in this article, I’m going to tell you how to stop outbreaks.
Years ago I came across a blog post where this dude stated he had contracted herpes and was told by a nurse who served in Vietnam that by taking magnesium regularly it would stop outbreaks permanently.
My cold sores were cured in childhood by my family’s remedy of supplementing magnesium. A M.A.S.H. nurse who served in Viet Nam was a friend who had extreme herpes and could not have contact with sunlight as it would ignite her condition. She tried the family remedy and had the first suntan of her life since contracting the disease. She supplemented a couple of magnesium pills with every meal (I just use milk of magnesia), plus took pro-biotics and vitamin C with bioflavanoids to help mineral absorption. The theory is the herpes virus can thrive in a body deficient of magnesium. Increase the magnesium level and the virus is stifled. I have turned many friends on to this simple remedy and they have had cessation of symptoms.
This intrigued me and I started to do research, but unfortunately, I couldn’t find any scholarly articles or research articles on PUBMED. I couldn’t even find any information relating magnesium to HSV suppression in Dr. Carolyn Dean’s popular book “The Magnesium Miracle“.
But not everything is “officially” known or recorded, and this seemed to be the case.
I was at a crossroads, all I had was anecdotal information, but unbeknownst to me when I disclosed what I was researching to a friend of mine, that individual disclosed that they were in fact infected with HSV-2. So I told the friend what I had discovered about HSV in relation to magnesium, and the friend wanted to test it out. So I told the friend to start taking 400 mg daily of “Doctor’s Best” elemental magnesium glycinate.
It’s very important if you take magnesium not to buy magnesium oxide, it’s the cheapest form of magnesium and it’s barely if at all bio-available to your body. See my article on magnesium, “Magnesium: The Miracle Mineral“.
Month after month, until it went past a year the friend didn’t have any outbreaks. My friend ate all the so-called trigger foods and even got sick with the flu a few times, but no outbreaks.
According to the dude, “The theory is the herpes virus can thrive in a body deficient of magnesium”.
This may be, but I have no idea how this works. Magnesium is an electrolyte and an alkali mineral, it has a strong effect on the nerves, and the nerves is what the HSV virus uses to travel as well as hide within the body. Maybe the alkalizing effect magnesium has on the body disallows the HSV virus to come out of its hiding place, or maybe the alkaline effect is not conducive for the HSV virus to travel along the nerves. I’ve read where some experts claim that an alkaline diet can minimize and reduce outbreaks.
I really don’t know, but from what I’ve seen with my own eyes, taking a daily magnesium supplement can outright stop the outbreaks from ever happening no matter what one eats or the state of one’s immune system.
