Herpeset: A Natural Solution for Herpes
One of the most common sexually transmitted diseases is Genital Herpes. Herpes is extremely contagious and caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus. The disease is characterized by very painful sores or blisters that appear on the genital area. Unfortunately, there is no known cure and the virus stays dormant in your body until something triggers an outbreak. However, there are things that can be done to limit the uncomfortable symptoms and to prevent the spread of Herpes.
It is key when fighting Herpes that you try to stay as healthy as possible. A good strong immune system is your best defense in keeping the disease dormant. Things like Echinacea, vitamin C and L-Lysine which is found naturally in your body will help boost your system. Also, it is very important to keep stress to a minimum. Herpes enters your body through the thin skin of the genital area and travels along a nerve pathway until it reaches a bundle of nerves at the base of your spine. Here it remains inactive, until it’s aggravated in some way. This can come from fever, stress, sleep deprivation, menstruation, sun exposure, rough or frequent sex and eating peanuts in excess. It then follows that same pathway from the base of your spine until it reaches the surface of the skin, multiplies and forms fluid filled blisters that erupt into painful sores. This is when the virus is most contagious.
If a breakout occurs keeping the area clean and dry helps, also applying such natural remedies as apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, or making a paste from French green clay works really great.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle will really help in your fight against Herpes. One that includes exercise, fruits and vegetables, lots of water and plenty of rest will keep your immune system strong and ready to fight! There is no way of totally getting rid of the virus, but staying positive and focused on living a strong healthy life will definitely help.
