Be Herpes Free

By: Pablo
Herpes is a prevalent virus which effects at least a third of the world, be it cold sores or genital ulcers, Herpes is painful and embarrassing. The pain of Herpes is caused by the fact that the virus lives in the nerves. It hibernates in the ganglia, and is officially impossible to kill. Living Herpes Free may be to live symptom free, or it may be to kill the virus.

Joining forums and support groups is a great way to dispel the power of Herpes, especially genital herpes, which is due to its STD nature hard to talk about. Unfortunately what a lot of people are unaware of is that condoms are not enough to avoid transmitting genital herpes. It is passed on by infected skin to skin contact, not through sexual fluids. I have had a lot of shocked clients, and known shocked health workers who believed they were being safe through using condoms, to find that they still contracted Herpes.

As a naturopath, Herpes is one of the most common reasons people come to me. I have had great results because I understand how Herpes works in the body, what feeds it, what starves it nutritionally, emotionally and topically. Herpes is a virus that needs to be treated on all of these levels. As Herpes essentially lives in the Nervous System, state of mind, state of emotion and state of being is the environment in which Herpes lives.

It is hard to fathom, but Herpes can be an ally. It is a barometer to your health and well-being. Once identified triggers can be minimized if not eliminated, and if the tingling of the Herpes virus is noticed you may be able to tell if you are making a wrong turn somewhere. I know of loads of cases where genital herpes came up due to uncertainty in intimate relationships, or pressure from being unable to set boundaries. When Herpes comes up in these stressful times it is important to treat the immune and nervous systems, as well as looking at how to manage relationships with partners, friends, family and colleagues in a way that isn't compromising your boundaries.

Herpes breaks the body's premier boundary - the skin. Metaphysically it is essential to maintain integrity. Integrity is what holds boundaries together. One of the biggest signs of a Herpes outbreak being on its way is the foul of foulest moods. It has been described as "being dirty on the world". With this going on maintaining integrity and right relationship is way difficult, and doesn't Herpes know it. If you feel this happening start treating yourself.

Treatment for Herpes is individual. My preferred treatment is to boost the immune system, support the immune system, use the antiviral drugs during an outbreak alongside a herbal cream topically and nutritional advice. Just prior to and during an outbreak, it can feel like this is a life sentence, but you just need support, physically, nutritionally and emotionally. Seeking advice from a naturopath or herbalist is invaluable in treating Herpes. Even if you don't kill off the virus, you can lengthen the chain it may hold around you. There is hope to live symptom free, Herpes Free.
