Herpes (genitals)

We would also suggest the following:

A healthy intake of nutrients: One needs to focus on the immune system. To help keep the virus dormant.

Foods rich in L-lysine: An amino acid that stops the herpes virus from mutating. *Fish, chicken, turkey, vegetables and legumes. *Supplement 1000mg 3x per day*.

Antioxidant foods: These are your carotenoids, bioflavonoids and Vit C to help boost the immune system and speed healing up. *Orange and red vegetables*.

Omega 3 fatty acids: Helps with inflammation and tissue repair. *Wild-caught fish is a good source*.

Lean protein: The body needs protein to heal. Organic, lean is best. Fish should be wild-caught, poultry should be pasture-raised and grain-fed and beef should be grass-fed.

Zinc: Can protect the body from viruses. *Food sources: Liver, grass-fed beef, pumpkin seeds, nuts, vegetables, especially spinach, *supplement 30mg 2x per day*.

Avoid foods that will cause inflammation and will lower your immune system: *sugars, processed foods, refined carbohydrates, packed foods*.

Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • Ginger Essential Oil
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil

Application – Buy a base oil: sweet almond or jojoba. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 4 drops of Eucalyptus, 4 drops of Tea Tree and 2 drops of Ginger. Apply the mixture over the affected area, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 2 drops of Eucalyptus, 2 drops of Tea Tree and 1 drop of Ginger. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes

Compress – (A warm or cool compress). Add 2-3 drops of Essential Oil into a bowl of water. Soak the cloth in it. Apply the cloth to the area for 15 minutes or so. (1 drop of each oil)

** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **

** Tea Tree – Avoid up to the age of 5. Can irritate the skin and be very drying on its own **

** Eucalyptus – Avoid during pregnancy/lactation, epilepsy, on homoeopathic remedies. Avoid use for children under 1 and with caution up to the age of 8 **

** Ginger – Use low doses, a strong, warming oil. Avoid during pregnancy, HBP, Heart conditions, Cancer, Diabetes, Liver damage, Skin disorders/sensitivity. No sun direct sun exposure to any skin applications for 24hours **
