I used to link to a product that I believe can help the body aturally deactivate the herpes virus in your system. I did this because I completely believe in the ability of certain natural substances such as pure essential oils, as powerful and effective anti-herpetics. Why?
1. Because pure essential oils can cross the blood/brain barrier, which means their effects are almost immediate.
2. Because most pure essential oils are either antiviral, antibacterial or both, which means they are potent tools to use when assisting your body in controlling herpes outbreaks.
However, regardless of whether or not it can be proven (and it can) that pure essential oils have antiviral properties, it is apparently no longer legal in this United States of America to recommend them for addressing viral states in the body such as shingles or herpes simplex virus.
For me, this is a sad day in America.
Prescription drug remedies for treating herpes simplex virus only suppress the virus. None of them claim a cure. Neither did I claim a cure; I do claim that natural antivirals may help the body as much as prescription antivirals and I still believe that.
I also believe that natural antivirals have less capacity for side effects.
As of this writing, there still exist many topical herpes ointments. This may certainly not be the case in the days to come, if we don't all voice our right to self-treat and to be free to share stories of success.
If you are considering a natural antiviral formula, a key question to ask is whether these antiviral creams sit on the top of the skin, and possibly offer some relief to the area where the outbreak has already happened (which may be valid relief) or whether the active ingredients actually penetrate into the skin and attack the virus before it comes to the surface and as it is attempting to surface into an outbreak.
I sincerely apologize for being unable at this time to offer a natural antiviral blend. However, I can say that teatree oil has natural antiviral properties, applied topically and herbs like Melissa and Wild Olive Leave Extract have antiviral properties with taken internally.... At least, I think I can still say that.
