Grow Youthful: How to Slow Your Aging and Enjoy Extraordinary Health

Ailment: Herpes simplex

Remedy: Tea

Make half a cup of strong black tea. Use ordinary black tea, not green tea or herbal tea. Do NOT add sugar or honey! It needs to be strong and dark, so let it steep for 10 minutes and give it a good stir or jiggle.

When the tea is cold, put a couple of drops in each eye every 3-4 hours. Also soak a cotton ball in the tea and use for cleaning.

Do not leave the tea out all day. It must be sterile.

Don't give up, and don't let the virus dominate you, try to focus love and forgiveness on your body, and visualize the smooth, unaffected skin and organs you have when healthy. I have had outbreaks for 50 years, there are many treatments I have used for oral and other herpes. I think I might have self-contaminated my own body.
The most immediate is gentian violet, it instantly dries and stops the tingling and itching, but it is deep purple and stains everything, though it scabs up and flakes off. The next is a tea bag, the tannic acid dries up the blister, but it takes time. Earl Grey tea has bergamot, an added benefit, and bergamot oil works somewhat, but it works best mixed into some clay bentonite or green or white clay mixed with water or aloe vera juice. I have done ozone, too destructive to the intestinal flora for me! I and now am trying H2O2 in the form of footbaths, and homeopathy especially thuja, sepia, and rhus tox . But the most important thing is self-care and love, you notice how it flares up when we are distressed or stressed, even good stress. So balance and gratitude are very important, good luck to you!
