The Herpes Virus
Herpes has many different strains; however the most common is Herpes Simplex 2, which is the sexually transmitted version of that particular virus. Herpes also has a secondary major strain known as Herpes Simplex 1. This can manifest in issues like cold sores and other rashes and is not sexual in nature in terms of transmission. Herpes has many different variations as it a very common type of virus. It cannot always be detected upon the initial infection, however its manifestation can be experienced from a week to years later, usually accompanied with stress to the immune system.
Herpes: Never Goes Away
The sexually transmitted disease form of the Herpes virus can just get downright ugly in terms of the pain, swelling, itching that it causes to the patient. Great caution and understanding must be used when in a sexual interaction with another individual. Protection should always be used in these cases or the disease will most likely spread. Also, if the individual happens to be pregnant with the disease, if untreated, the infant has the possibility of being born with birth defects and receive the disease also. In these cases, medical attention is crucial, and a caesarian procedure for the birthing process is preferred so the child does not also contract herpes from the mother.
Herpes, depending on what kind it is, can usually manifest itself in various forms. The most common understanding how the disease interacts on the body is by forming small pimple like bumps on the affected area. These bumps can often be very itchy and painful. In cases of outbreaks, the herpes virus can even cause these pimples to pop and break, which can be excruciating for the patient. When this happens, the individual who is infected is especially contagious, so any body contact with these areas should be avoided at all costs at the high probability of a virus transfer from the original individual to the recipient.
Change Your Fate the Natural Way
The main way to prevent getting the virus is to always have protected sex if the individual is with a new partner. Where condoms as necessary, and always be on the same page medically with someone, with which you are sexually active. Protected sex is essential for stopping the transmission of these diseases. If there are open lesions or sores on someone with genital herpes, avoid sex altogether. Try dinner and a movie instead.
While herpes does not have a proper “cure” or vaccination against the virus, there are many lifestyle changes and natural remedies that the individual can undergo to lessen the affects of herpes.
Guwel sattva (200mg) and shatavari (500mg) are instrumental herbs that will help against herpes problems.
In terms of an effective diet to combat herpes outbreaks, foods that are high in amino acids should be avoided, as these can give the virus “ammunition” to trigger an outbreak or simply exacerbate an outbreak. Also, highly acidic foods have the ability to trigger the virus to act up, because highly acidic food will make its way to the surface of the skin. If an individual always eats garlic, one can easily smell the garlic residue on the skin. Amino acids work in the same way, and when the acid reaches the skin, it invites a herpes outbreak.
Also, taking herbal supplements can help reduce the severity of an outbreak or even cause outbreaks to occur less in frequency.
