Ailment: Chicken pox
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!

For an adult, two 500mg tablets during the first two days of the outbreak, then revert to one tablet per day. Half this dose for smaller children
