Enzyme Therapy

Read about Enzymes and read more about enzymes.

Then read this article.

Read about Protein Folding

Understand that a large portion of the cell’s nucleus is not just DNA, but proteins.

Also understand that proteins are everywhere even in the lipid coating surrounding our friends Herpes & Candida. An enzyme is a special type of protein that is like a key that can cause larger proteins to fold & unfold. As you age, your body slows down the production of enzymes and by supplementing, you can make an efficient use of the proteins in your diet and rebuild your nuclear protein stores. You can also speed up chemical reactions – like the destruction of foreign bodies in your system.

I am currently on a high-potency enzyme. I take 3 each night before bed as they can’t be mixed with food, otherwise, they just break down the food.

[UPDATE 5/14/13] After a week on 3 high potency (180,000 HUT each) each night before bed the lymph nodes in my right armpit became very sore so I cut back for a few days until the swelling went down and I’m starting back in at 2 per night. I’ve increased my exercise to attempt to flush the lymph system. Always listen to your body and throttle back anything that may be overloading your waste removal system.

Anemia – Increasing Red Blood Cells

David Blaine held his breath for 17 minutes and one of his secrets was increasing his red blood cell count through a number of methods.  I did a little research and found out that Don Quai and the supplement Hema-Plex (beets) help increase RBC.

Why is this important?  What are some of the things people claim help alleviate Herpes symptoms – oxygen, ozone, Valtrex, herbs, etc.  People attempt to get more of these items into the system through things like hyperbaric chambers, ozone IV, etc.  Or, people can attempt to have these items more effectively transported throughout the system by increasing the mechanism which transports these items through the body – Red Blood Cells.  These little powerhouses transport oxygen and assist with transporting nutrients throughout the body.  According to Wikipedia:

When erythrocytes undergo shear stress in constricted vessels, they release ATP which causes the vessel walls to relax and dilate so as to promote normal blood flow.[14]

When their hemoglobin molecules are deoxygenated, erythrocytes release S-nitrosothiols which also acts to dilate vessels,[15] thus directing more blood to areas of the body depleted of oxygen.

It has been recently demonstrated that erythrocytes can also synthesize nitric oxide enzymatically, using L-arginine as substrate, just likeendothelial cells.[16] Exposure of erythrocytes to physiological levels of shear stress activates nitric oxide synthase and export of nitric oxide,[17]which may contribute to the regulation of vascular tonus.

So, increasing red blood cells will not only transport more oxygen throughout the body assisting with the oxidation process (killing of viruses, bacteria, etc.), but will help dilate vessels and open up areas which may not be getting the oxygen they need.

 

Since taking two pills daily of Don Quai and a nightly Hema-plex a majority of my Herpes symptoms have disappeared – no more sharp pains in the groin region.  However, I did have initial complications with caffine and arthralgia.  Since nutrients are transported more efficiently and I normally drink 2-3 large coffees daily you can imagine what happened to my heart rate as that caffine began to course through my system.  Next was the Valtrex which I hated taking initially because it created arthritis like pains in my knuckles, shoulders, and any other site that had injury and swelling.  My right shoulder underwent serious pain, but it has been relieved by massage, Glucosamine-Condroitin-MSM, and Collagen.  Also remember that MSM/Sulfur is part of the Budwig Protocol that I find to be useful which also helps with oxygen transport.

There are other issues that need to be considered like getting too much iron in the system or too many red blood cells so proceed with caution as always.

BHT – do not use!

Okay, it has been like 3 years since I used BHT to try and eliminate herpes and it created a hole in my ear – something called CNH.  It took 3 months of polysporin on my ear every day to fix the hole.  Here it is 3 years later and I took like 200mg and the hole in my ear immediately came back and I got light headed.  It has been like 3 months of a very painful ear and it is slowly closing up again.

My recommendation is to us monolaurin as it is far more effective with far fewer side effects.

Monolaurin (monolauricedin)

I take it back, this stuff is working great when taken 3-4 times a day.  However, you must have a clean liver and clean colon for it to work.  Since herpes infects the bacteria in the colon, monolaurin helps remove the lipid coating so the body can identify and eliminate the virus from the colon and liver.
Since starting additional great things have happened.  I had little moles all over my body and they became thin, burst, scabbed over and disappeared.  More than one benefit to monolaurin.
Also, I was having ‘ant bites’ on the privates, this stuff has helped reduce and eliminate those.
It is pricey, but you can get 21oz. On Amazon for about $50.

Valtrex, Famvir, and Acyclovir

How does Valtrex work and why would you want to take it daily?  First you need to understand how a cell works and how a virus works and realize that herpes is a lipid coated virus that reproduces through a Lysogenic Cycle and most likely exit the cell via “budding” or wrapped in portions of the cell.  More can be learned about herpes here as well. So, herpes can stay dormant in cell or many cells for years and at some point they all begin reproduction and millions or billions of herpes viruses are then release into the system overpowering the immune system and causing an outbreak or viral shedding.  The viral lipid coating and the “budding” of the virus makes it very difficult for the immune system to identify the virus and attack it allowing it to reproduce almost unchecked.

Along comes Acyclovir and later Valacyclovir which stays in the body longer.  This drug is taken up by infected cells, 100 times more so than healthy cells, and literally inserts itself into the herpes viral DNA chain which halts further reproduction by the herpes virus.  Thus, by taking even small doses of Valtrex daily the drug courses through your system looking for potentially infected cells and halting the future reproduction of the herpes virus.  Valtrex also interferes with free floating herpes viruses in the system rendering them harmless.

New research is discovering how to wake up the herpes virus as it lays dormant in your cells.  By waking up all of the herpes viruses as once and causing a massive explosion of herpes viruses from every infected cell you could then take massive doses of Valtrex which would render them all harmless and thus you would be cured.

However, even though infected cells are 100 times more likely to take up Valtrex that still leaves a lot of cells that may not take up the Valtrex and they will produce a cell full of millions of herpes viruses.  By having Valtrex coursing through your system on a regular basis you can potentially stop any free floating herpes viruses before they re-enter new cells and begin the process all over.

The question is just how much Valtrex do you need to take.  Before discovering the benefits of colon cleansing, liver cleansing, parasite cleansing and BSC (baking soda, sea salt, and vitamin C) I was taking 1000mg of Valtrex a day and I was still having terrible outbreaks about once a month.  At that dosage I also had terrible arthralgia in my shoulders, my hips, and my fingers.  I was incredibly sore and felt very old.  While cleansing I was taking 250mg Valtrex daily and I noticed zero symptoms.  Beginning today (2/18/09) I am going to maintain a regular maintenance dose of 125mg to 250mg per day.  At some point I may try 125mg or 250mg every other day.

Update (3/15/09):

The Valtrex is working very well, however, it has it’s pluses and minuses.  I am taking 250mg every day, but I began to get arthralgia in my right hip socket and it was very painful.  I stopped Valtrex for 2 days and had an immediate outbreak without any prodrome symptoms.  It started as a single red follicle and by the end of the day was a quarter sized patch.  However, as soon as I took 250mg of Valtrex it stopped and reversed.  Leave it up to the magical pharma companies to get you 100% hooked on their drugs.  My inability to go without a drug for 2 days makes Glaxo-Smith Klein my crack dealer and I’m their crack whore.  Luckily I’m at least reducing my dependency.

Additionally, since being on Valtrex for the last month, the vibrations in my left hip and left tail bone have certainly decreased when using my Doug Coil Rife machine.  I’ve mentioned in the past that the Doug Coil is great for detecting health issues, but I’m not sure it is very good at killing items as small as viruses.  However, I am now getting strong vibrations in my liver and the left lymphatic system indicating that this virus is being disposed of by the body, but it is stuck in these waste elimination systems.  This is why Bob Beck recommended the use of the magnetic pulser for herpes and that is why I use a Doug Coil machine.

For those that are interested, the frequency I use is 1552 Hz with a square wave.  1552 Hz certainly causes better vibrations than 1550 Hz.  Additionally, I use 532 Hz, 540 Ha, 541 Hz, and 832 Hz for herpes and 880 Hz for general health since 880 Hz is listed as helping over 300 ailments.

Update (3/24/09):

Unreal, I missed a single dose two days ago and I had a small outbreak this morning.  Nothing outrageous, just a small redenning this morning and a little bit of swelling this evening.  Not sure exactly how this is possible, but I will try to understand this better.

Update (5/25/09):

I just can’t do it anymore!  Almost 3 months into the Valtrex treatment at 250mg daily (1/4 of 1000mg pill) and the arthralgia is just too much to take.  Every single joint in my ankles, feet, hands, wrists, shoulders, everywhere simply ache way too much to take.  After reading about the Lysine I am going to try to go back to 6-8g/day and drop off of the Valtrex.  Now that my liver is clean, it should be able to process the lysine and keep the virus at bay until I can elminiate it.

On a positive note, I’ve been off of the Valtrex for 5 days and the Doug Coil Rife machine is not registering a growth in virus.  However, it usually takes about a week for the Valtrex to wear off.  My joints are certainly feeling better though.  If I do notice an increase in the intensity of the Rife “hits” then I may go to 250mg every other or every 3rd day.

Hopefully this is not important, but the lymph nodes in both of my arm pits are swelling up.  But there also seems to be another large stone stuck in my liver after my 14th liver cleanse – perhaps these are related.  The liver was a little sore this morning and my allergies were off the charts.

Update (6/3/09): Never just stop Valtrex like I just did.  I would recommend slowly coming off of it.  I had some of the worst OB pains ever in my hamstrings and actually in my femer bones just above and behind the knee.  Very painful.  It may have been related to the 6-10 grams of Lysine I was taking, but not sure.  I did of course have immediate outbreaks after beeing off the Valtrex for about 5 days, but my joints feel so much better. I was able to curb the OBs with lots of baking soda and zapping, but I really do not think the Lysine does much.  I reached tolerance with Lysine at about 10 grams/day and it still has little to no effect.  I will go back on Valtrex, but will try to turn it down to 125mg/day or every other day in order to avoid the joint pain.  I will also be doing 6-8g of Lysine a day.

However, Arginine (which Lysine interferes with) is the pre-cursor to growth hormone so long term usage of Lysine is probably not recommended.

At this point in time it seems like Valtrex and some ingredient in Paragone parasite cleanse are the only things that stop my outbreaks.

Update (4/21/2017): OK, reading some old posts here and the good thing in Paragone and Humaworm is Pau D’ Arco, see the post on my Holy Trinity pill recommendations.

 

Liver Cleansing

Warning – these images are graphic, turn away now.

Okay, after my 10th liver cleanse about 3 weeks ago this thing came out of me.  Yes, this was stuck in my liver and or my gallbladder:

monster

Notice that this stone is made up of lots of little stones all stuck together.  I have felt this thing pressing on my spine for the last 2 years.  I noticed it after my first cleanse.  I believe it has been blocking the liver function for the left side of my body.  It has single handedly been stopping the processing of the lymphatic fluid by the liver.  That lymph was loaded with herpes virus and my body simply never eliminated any of the herpes virus.  Or, it did it very, very slowly and much slower than the virus replicates.

However, it doesn’t really look all that impressive until you compare it to the other stones that typically come out during a liver cleanse:

10th-cleanse

And realize that these “small” stones are actually very large.  Recall that I am a sick person, a healthy person should have no stones coming out of them.  I had these stones and The Monster come out of me in one cleanse – creepy:

10th-cleanse-2
My 10th Cleanse

Or at a minimum they should have small stones like the ones that came out during my 11th cleanse.  This is everything from my 11th cleanse.  There is practically nothing there and I expect my 12th cleanse to be even less.

11th-cleanse1
My 11th Cleanse

A day or two after this came out I began to have herpes pains all down my left leg – my LEFT leg.  I have NEVER had pain down my left leg, it is always behind my right knee.  But that day it was all the way down and into the heal of my left foot.  Something major was afoot.

Also, using the Doug Coil I can now tell you that herpes lives in the lower spine which we know, but it is also being carried all around by the lymphatic fluid, it is filtered out by the liver, and it is ejected out the colon.  Today my liver, my lymph, my lower left spine/hip, and my intestines all “hit” on the herpes frequencies.

Wait for it!

Those “hits” are getting weaker, and weaker every single day.  I’ve added MMS back into the mix and I’m drinking 5 drops per night without any diarrhea side effects.  The herpes pain that I have felt in my lower back every single morning for the last 5 years is gone.  I no longer wake up every morning with the first thought on my mind being, “Ouch – I have herpes”

So

Suffice it to say I am a HUGE fan of liver cleansing.

Update (4/30/2009):

Okay, so my 12th liver cleanse did not go as I had planned.  I figured I would have practically nothing after what came out in the 11th cleanse.  This clearly shows why it is critical to do periodic liver cleanses while you are sick.  You liver is working over time trying to filter the garbage out of your body.  Here you can see some very large stones.  During this cleanse I did a lot of yoga stretching after drinking the oil.  I curled up as tightly as I could into a ball and did back bends and side-to-side stretches.

My 12th Liver Cleanse
My 12th Liver Cleanse

Update (5/10/2009):

And here is my 13th liver cleanse results:

13th Liver Cleanse
13th Liver Cleanse

Now to compare my last few cleanses to understand exactly what is going on:

  • 10th Cleanse – Older, darker stones that were released with the large monster stone which was blocking my liver from being able to process the lymphatic fluids on the left side of my body where 75% of the lymphatic fluid resides
  • 11th Cleanse – Many fewer stones as the liver is now pretty clean
  • 12th Cleanse – The liver is fully back online after the large stone is removed.  It is processing all of the lymphatic fluid which has been blocked up and dormant in the body for many years.  A massive number of stones are released.
  • 13th Cleanse – Very few stones produced, the liver is alive, working well, and properly disposing of waste without becoming congested.
  • 14th Cleanse – Large stones like 12, but fewer overall stones I believe.

10th-cleanse-211th-cleanse112th-cleanse-213th-cleanse14th-cleanse


I have been using my Doug Coil, I have been taking MMS, and I have been using my Bob Beck zapper.  All of these things are killing viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa off at a very high rate, but that garbage is being collected in the liver and causing it to become congested again after the 11th Cleanse and produced a massive number of stones in the 12th cleanse.

I also had an outbreak the day of the 13th cleanse and it lasted about a day.  I have been lax on my baking soda, salt, and vitamin C.  However, it may be regression or it may be that I still have parasites.

However, my Doug Coil hits are going from a scal of 5-8 to a scale of 1-4.  I am no longer getting hits on my left lymphatic where I used to get hits in the 6-8 range.  The liver really is removing this virus from my system.

Update (5/22/09):

Well, the 14th cleanse is complete and the results leave me with mixed feelings.  Am I happy because I’m purging so much garbage or am I sad because after 14 of these dumb things there is still so much garbage in me.  A lot more than in 13, but less than in 12, however, there are large stones like in 12.

14th-cleanse

There is also a whole lot of “chaffe” or “sand”.  Is each one of these a virus that has been trapped, filtered out by the liver, and encased in a bile tomb – I really, really hope so.

chaffe

I also seem to have dislodged another large stone at the end of this cleanse and it is poking around inside me.  My liver had some sharp pains this morning (5/26/09) and my allergies were off the charts.

[Side Note] Many say that the liver is responsible for allergies and I will postulate that it is responsible for histamines.  The liver is the first line of defense, when it identifies that there are indeed foreign invaders in the blood that it is actively filtering out, I believe the liver notifies the body to “release the hounds (aka histamines)”.

Here is a good site for a quick rundown on what the liver does and why it is important to keep it clean:  http://www.sensiblehealth.com/Journey-01.xhtml

My Personal Liver Cleanse Recipe (This is not medical advice, this is simply how I do my cleanses):

WARNING (From Curezone):

Make sure you are able to tolerate Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt) before you attempt to consume 4 tablespoons.

People unable to tolerate Magnesium Sulfate may suffer negative reaction, even death.

Several people died from the results of Epsom Salt overdose.

Only after 14+ days on a parasite cleanse are you ready for your liver cleanse.  I would do it Friday night/Saturday. Drink lots of distilled water after your cleanse to help flush/wash the liver.

Parasites/Toxins/Bacteria/Viruses poison you and clog your liver.  The liver is what cleanse your blood and produces the enzymes that help you effectively digest food.  Once the liver is broken everything else is all downhill.

Read all about it here under the Hulda Clark cleanse:
www.curezone.com/cleanse/liver

You MUST do a parasite cleanse for 2 weeks prior to doing a liver cleanse.  If there are any parasites in your liver they will trap and block stones from getting out and can cause a problem.

-Continue to use for 15 days after your liver cleanse to kill parasite eggs and larvae

Humaworm is very good at removing parasites from your organs and muscles after you have purged the others out of your GI tract:
*http://humaworm.com/

I also recommend a good stone breaker like Chanca Piedra for 14-30 days before the liver cleanse in order to soften and break up any stones.

The Tools and Ingredients:

  • A good parasite cleanse for 2 weeks before
  • Chanca Piedra for 2-4 weeks before (Available as pills or liquid from Rain-Tree Nutrition)
  • 1/2 gallon or more of Apple Juice
  • 2 large fresh grapefruits
  • 4 tablespoons of epsom salt
  • A glass Tazo Tea bottle or similar, emptied, and cleaned
  • tazo-bottle
  • A citrus juicer
  • citrus-juicer
  • A plastic straw
  • Ice
  • A cheap plastic collander
  • Flushable bathroom wipes
  • wipes

The Cleanse:

I personally do a juice fast for a day or two before a liver cleanse.  It makes dealing with the collander that much easier and cleaner.  But fasting is not necessary and you probably are not easily able to fast until your 10th+ liver cleanse.  I now find it incredibly easy to only drink fruit and vegetable juice for a few days on end without any hunger.

2pm – No eating or drinking after 2pm or you will get ill
6pm – 1 tbsp epsom dissolved in 3/4 cup apple juice, add ice, drink through a straw.  Take a mouthful of apple juice after to wash away the horrible taste.
7pm – I drink a large glass of water here (optional, but helps clear the pipes)
8pm – 1 tbsp epsom dissolved in 3/4 cup apple juice, add ice, drink through a straw. Take a mouthful of apple juice after to wash away the horrible taste.
9:45pm – get all chores done and get ready for bed and prepare drink.  Strain pulp and seeds out of your lemon or grapefruit juice, mix 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/2-1 cup citrus juice in a glass bottle with a lid (I use an empty Tazo Tea bottle, the small opening reduces the air inlet and bad taste)
10pm – shake it up good.  Take 4 L-Ornithine pills with your olive oil mixutre and drink it down (Do NOT use a straw – oil will eat plastic)

Immediately lay on right side for about 10 minutes.  Slowly pull your knees to your chest.
Lay on back for 10 minutes pulling a knee to your chest at a time, then hug both your knees if you can
Lay on your left side for 10 minutes. Slowly pulling knees to chest now and again
Feel free to do some yoga stretches here like baby pose, back stretch, side stretches, etc. – anything to stretch and compress the liver under your right rib cage
Sleep on your right side all night

6am – 1 tbsp epsom disolved in apple juice, add ice, drink through straw. Take a mouthful of apple juice after to wash away the horrible taste.
7am – I drink a large glass of water here (optional)
8am – 1 tbsp epsom dissolved in 3/4 cup apple juice, add ice, drink through a straw. Take a mouthful of apple juice after to wash away the horrible taste.
9am – Drink lots and lots of water to help minimize the amount of time you will be stuck around the house, but also make sure to get some electrolytes (1/8 tsp. sea salt and/or 1/8 tsp. baking soda dissolved in water and drink) back into your body.

9am – 4pm you will be around the house not far from facilities for the day.  You should be able to be back to normal activities after 4pm.

1pm – You should be able to start eating after Noon, but I usually fast until about 2pm.  You should be able to return to your regular diet.

4pm-6pm You should have a final visit to the bathroom, but it should be controllable.

It is best if you use a colander when going to the bathroom to capture your output.  Simply pour many large glasses of water over the remains to see what your liver is getting rid of.

Repeat every 2 weeks until there are only very small stones or no stones coming out.

A simple link that was posted to the Yahoo Miracle Mineral Supplement group and it brought all of the pieces together for me.

Sitting around thinking tonight I believe Herpes is a beneficial virus in that it is a personal health barometer.  Why do some people have a single outbreak and never have a reoccurance? How can we all have chickenpox and only a few people get Shingles?  What is it that causes an outbreak in people?  How can some people have 2-4 per year and why have I had continuous outbreaks every other day for the last 3 months?

Three months is an interesting timeframe as it is the point in time when I discovered “something” living in my intestines via my Doug Coil Rife Machine.  I thought I was waking up the herpes virus from dormancy via the coil which may still be correct, but what I was mainly doing was killing the fungus in my intestines with each Rife session.  For 2 months I have had diarrhea from Iodine and MMS all while my Rife intestine “hits” have been getting less and less, but still there.  Based on info from Know The Cause, as these fungi live and die they are releasing mycotoxins which are flooding my body.  This massive toxic release is keeping my body from being able to attack, suppress, and eliminate the herpes virus.

All of my recent research indicates that you MUST get to an alkaline state to eliminate cancer, viruses, bacteria, and now fungi.  For the last thee days I have been doing the Phase 1 diet described at Know The Cause and I’ve upped my Salt/C/Baking Soda.  I’m including lots of psyllium husk fiber to help remove the mycotoxins from my system.  I’ve stopped the MMS and Iodine until I can eliminate the fungus in my intestines, however, I’m quite confident they will help with the eventual elminiation of Herpes from my system based on earlier results.  The biggest problem has been that the MMS and Iodine were attacking the intestinal fungus causing massive die-off, mycotoxin release, diarrhea, and poor nutrition which has lead to my current state of daily outbreaks.

My daily “creeping” outbreak finally went to full blisters and was quite severe, however, after the regiment of the last 3 days I am clear – no more daily creeping outbreak. I am on a road to recovery and a future of very powerful health knowledge.  I may try the gut antifungal drug Nystatin as the MMS, Iodine, and Phase 1 diet will simply take too long to eliminate this fungus which has been with me for a very long time.  I believe that having this fungus in me is why I caught herpes in the first place as my immune system was ill prepared to handle it.

If you are having more than 1-2 outbreaks per year, you simply are not healthy and need to understand the fundamentals of www.knowthecause.com.  If you are only having 1-2 outbreaks per year then I recommend MMS/Iodine/Salt/C/Baking Soda to help you eliminate your Herpes.

Wow, 5 years of my personal research and probably $50 worth of products and you may be able to eliminate Herpes and any other cancer, virus, bacteria, or fungus from your system.  Throw in some Olive Leaf Extract and you have one hell of a biological war chest.  Once eliminated you need only look to your diet for the answers to your ailments.

It’s rather anti-climactic, but one I am thrilled to have discovered and am happy to share for free.  However, please consider a small donation via the link at the left.

Ultimate Herpes Cure

Salt, Vitamin C & Baking Soda (Salt/C)

Well,

Wouldn’t it figure, the day after “Simply Feeling Great” I began to get outbreaks again.  But these outbreaks were more typical old-school herpes.  I’d get a rash and then it wouldn’t really blister, but it would move or creep (Herpes is Greek for To Creep).  It moved all over the place.  However, a few times it simply dried up and went away – with amazing speed.  What was I doing to cause it to dry up?  To be honest I’m really not sure and I’ve currently got one hell of a blister patch.  I’m doing a million different things right now, but I will focus on the Salt/C/BS protocol which I think is the magic bullet, however, I have a bacterial sore throat right now and I cannot really test my theories because bacteria love an alkaline environment and viruses love an acidic environment, a real catch-22, as one way or another I’m going to be sick.  Right now I’m focused on curing the sore throat and hence I have a hell of an outbreak, but thankfully it is limited to just the blister patch and no back pain.

For the S/C/BS Protocol I take the following at the suggested times (Please read the WARNING below):

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!!!!!

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda twice a day to akalize your system (8am & 10pm)
1/4 tsp. (1000 mg) good quality sea salt (NOT TABLE SALT) 2-4 times a day (10am, 2pm, 4pm, 8pm)
1/4 tsp. (1000 mg) Vitamin C which is Ascorbic Acid and will fight with the Baking Soda so timing is tough (10am, 2pm, 4pm, 8pm)

WARNING: Increasing your salt intake is going to raise your blood pressure.  Please seek medical advice prior to beginning this protocol.  Additionally, if you cannot drink plenty of clean water throughout the day, do not do this protocol.  Also, after reaching 3 grams of salt a day I did notice heart pains.  Please proceed with great caution.

Okay now for the really important part, ramp up slowly!  Let me repeat – start slowly, e.g. 1/2 tsp BS once a day and 1/4 tsp Salt/C once a day.  I’m not sure, but I think my current sore throat is either a Herx reaction or a cold from getting too alkaline too quickly allowing for a bacterial infection to set in.  BTW, at the first sign of being sick I increased my dosages thinking it would work great on a cold – I have NEVER had that bad of a stuffed head, no amount of decongestant would work.  However, I do believe my sinus infection is finally gone for good.

Also, you must go slowly so that your body can adjust to the new intake of salt.  The first few days you are going to bloat while your body adjust.  If you are too bloated, have a few shots or some decongestant to eliminate the excess water quickly, but drink plenty of water.  Ramp up slowly. Go slow. Don’t take too much too quickly, and go slow.

Why does this work – the excess salt works because that salt will be forced into any bacteria, viruses, or parasites in your body through osmosis.  If there is more salt outside the cell than inside the cell the salt will be forced in – it’s the way of the universe and they can’t fight it or become immune to it.  These things do not like salt water, one of the reasons the Dead Sea is dead.  However, we crawled out of the ocean and are salt water creatures so we do just fine.  I’m not sure about good bacteria in your gut and you will probably want to continue your probiotic intake.

Finally, you can ramp up to Salt/C every 2 hours and you can even double or triple your dosage every 2 hours (6 times a day) which is roughly 18 grams of Salt/C a day.  However, I noticed great results with just 3 grams of Salt/C a day.  Also, please seek medical advice if you are doing more than 2 grams of Salt/C a day as you may have a heart attack.

WARNING:  I did have heart pains after reaching 3g Salt/C per day.  I recommend taking it on an empty stomach with lots of water.  If you take it with food every two hours you may get a massive influx of salt all at once when the food is digested and you may find yourself in a world of hurt.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!!!!!

Lymphatic Massage & Yoga

Link

The lymphatic system is responsible for removing bacterial and viral waste from the body and is a basis for the immune system.  If you have a poor lymph system and you’ve had an outbreak you may have noticed painful lumps behind your knees, in your hamstring muscles, or in your armpits.  Unfortunately the lymph fluid is not pumped through the body like blood, it is moved mostly by the contractions of skeletal muscles.  The sedentary American lifestyle is not one of muscle contractions.  Thus it is important to get lymphatic massage and practice yoga.  These will help ensure that the lymph fluid is flowing properly and that your body is able to more readily remove cellular waste from your system.  If the lymph system is unable to remove the herpes virus, the virus will continue to remain in the system and replicate.  It is important to have a healthy immune system so that it can perform its function properly.

Iodine

Link

Good Link

It looks like my adrenals are shot and they are controlled by the endocrine (hormone) system which is controlled by the thyroid which thrives on iodine.  Hormones regulate everything in your body including your immune system.  Not only am I constantly exhausted my immune system is having a hell of a time with herpes.  Thus, I’m pretty sure I need some iodine.  Iodine is sadly missing from the U.S. diet and a lack of iodine has been shown to cause all kinds of illness.  The Japanese, considered the healthiest people on the planet, get an average of 13-25 mg of iodine a day from seaweed and fish.

The only real source of iodine in the American diet is salt and most people have cut back on salt because of their blood pressure.  It used to be in bread, but that has been replaced by bromide.

Worthless fact: When there is a nuclear explosion the primary isotope which is released is radioactive Iodide and since most thyroids don’t get enough iodine they suck up all of the radioactive iodide and the number one cause of death from a nuclear situation is thyroid cancer.  So, keep your thyroid happy and give it iodine.
