Ailment: Herpes simplex

Remedy: Lysine

L-Lysine is an amino acid that is a building block for all protein in the body. It plays a major role in calcium absorption; building muscles and ligaments; and the production of hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. It is an essential amino acid, which means that your body cannot make it, so you have to get it from your food.

L-Lysine plentiful in all pulses (legumes). Other foods that contain significant amounts of lysine include: red meat, eggs, watercress, carob, caraway seeds, cumin, coriander seed, spinach, amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat.

Shingles outbreak from herpes virus. Knowing excess arginine feeds herpes, I took 1000 mg Lysine 3 times daily to counteract arginine, along with 12 grams sodium ascorbate in split doses, 45 mg zinc, and a teaspoon of bicarb soda in large glass of water, sipped over 8 hr period. I bathed the blisters daily in an eggplant-vinegar mixture I keep for removing solar keratoses and basal cell carcinomas. The result was that my mild flu symptoms were gone in a week and scabs formed on the blisters in 3 days.
Question: I saw that the RNA code for the coronavirus depended on the position of arginine. Is it therefore possible arginine feeds the coronavirus? Could this same regimen be a helpful treatment?

I have used Lysine four or five times on one son who had cold sores. The cold sore virus and the chickenpox virus are closely related. While I was trying to get my son to take 1g/hr of Lysine, I doubt that he took more than 5g in any one day. In any case his recovery from cold sores was remarkable. Before my Lysine trial, his cold sores lingered for weeks. With Lysine they were cleared off no scabs, nothing, no itching, no pain, just clear skin . He was clear of cold sores in three days. Lysine is nontoxic and this has been confirmed in scientific literature for 50 years. You can eat 100g with no ill effect. Because of its stunning impact on cold sores, it makes great sense to use it against a shingles attack, since the two viruses are so closely related. Even if it were to not work, it costs you nothing to try since is non toxic!

Hey Sam here again, I've been on this stuff for a month and 1/2 now. I've been on 3 drops 3x a day since the 9th of January, and let me just say it's clearing up. Little tingly feelings here and there but nothing as bad as they uses to be. I'll be done with the protocol on the 9th of Feb. But seeing great results from using H202. like everyone is saying don't give up. Don't let herpes win! Have a positive attitude. some days I felt like it was never going to go away. But never think like that or you'll bring yourself down and make it come back by worrying about it. Don't give up. My skin is clearing up but from that I have to say I eat 3 green apples a day and have yogurt every morning. Now I drink nothing but water. Soda and coffee well make it come back quick. So stay away from that. Just stick to water. and I also take lysine pills everyday. 6 pills a day at 1000 mg. Two after every meal.

Super lysine from eBay / chemist warehouse in Australia 1000mg tablets c & zinc best value I can find. I eat then like lollies from the first sign for 2 days 20-25 a day. Avoid the bad foods, nuts coffee chocolate, rest and a good nights sleep. If caught early enough that's the end of it. If not caught quick enough it still resolves within a week

Snowpea - it may not be working for you because you take "soy". It contains Arginine that Herpes virus feeds on. Also, if you dilute 3 drops in 8oz distilled water (tap water binds with metals in it) and use all on your outside body (with spray bottle mainly on your back or spine and hip area) it works well too, and after it dries I use DMSO cream to hip and back area and it seems to cure genital herpes even though not directly on that area. I also increase 1 drop a day, to 25 drops, then go back down by 1 drop a day. Taking L-lysine with Vit C and Zinc in it are also good tablets to boost immune system.

Hello. I got hsv2 6 months after my wedding. Well I don't have him anymore but the herp is still with me. I got it in 2010 and didnt have another ob for alnost two years. The last couple of months I have had constant outbreaks. I am wanting to try the food grade peroxide but want to learn more about it. The last few days I felt the tingle cone on so i crushed a lysine pill, made a paste with it and applied it to my down there lips on a paper towl. Burned like a bitch for a few minutes but it was gone in a few hours. Has anyone else had success with this?

Take up to four 500mg L-lysine tablets per day when you notice the onset of a herpes outbreak. You will need to experiment with the dose to find what works for your own body and situation
