Drs and people everywhere accept that herpes cannot be cured because anti-bodies stay in the blood stream for life, once infected by the HSV virus. Before HIV came around antibodies were considered a positive sign, the bodies defense mechanism in action creating specific anti-bodies to fight a virus. However HIV changed that as the VIrus was so advanced that it would destroy the immune system designed to protect against it. However anti-bodies are not actual viral matter. There is a big difference between getting outbreaks monthly and never. I personally have gone from getting them once every 2-3 months to none in about 4 years now. My blood may still have anti-bodies but herpes does not bother me anymore. 5 years ago I was under the impression that I would never have another relationship. Today I even forget that I once had it. I struggled with herpes for over 5 years initially and tried almost everything under the sun including valtrex, ozone, red marine algae, letroject, nosodes (bio 88 from germany) and hypericum mysorense. For me the best results came with nosodes and hypericum mysorense which is sold as hyperisince. My personal opinion now is that no cure argument is flawed in essence. We all have anti-bodies for measles, mumps, chicken pox and a whole lot of other viruses, however no one says there is no cure for it. Also once things go into the no-cure category there are serious mental implications to be suffered. The no cure argument that comes from anti-body tests also has no way of quantifying the difference between a person getting outbreaks often and another one getting none. Having been in both places I can assure you that the difference in quality of life is HUGE. Itching daily and worrying about it is in my opinion no way to live. There are also new PCR-DNA tests for herpes that look for the virus itself and not anti-bodies. I believe there is a chance a person will come up with a positive IgG and still have zero viral matter remaining. This would show that the defence is up but the enemy is defeated. I am no expert on blood tests but dealing with herpes and not taking "there's no cure" as my destiny has led me to these facts. Anti-biotics are used only for bacteria and most anti-viral drugs I tried did little to help other than speed up healing time once an outbreak started. However I have found many better ways to tackle viruses in natural ways. Western Doctors continue to say that viruses cannot be cured but many eastern and natural Doctors say with confidence that a the very argument of no cure is flawed and herpes patients with the right treatments can go from being infectious and having outbreaks often to having none and most likely not being infectious.
