Herpes :: Taking Antivirals And Natural Remedies Together

Diagnosed via visual inspection and symptoms. Blood test negative. (i believe i have hsv 2, my dr agrees), i've been researching just like everyone else, and have come up with a few questions.

I'm currently taking l-lysine 3000mg per day, oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, colloidal silver, garlic supplement, and ahcc internally. Ive successfully stopped the primary/initial outbreak, but still getting some very mild tingling....

Is there any harm in taking all those anti virals at once? can i take them for a prolonged period?

It would seem the issue with curing this virus is the fact that it hides in the base of the spine, in the nerves, is that the one and only place it hides?

can hsv 2 hide elsewhere?

does anyone know how much of the virus comes out of the spine during an outbreak? is it all of the virus? half? a quarter?

Since the virus can be killed when it leaves the spine, one would think that if you caused outbreaks on purpose, over and over, intentionally, for a prolonged period, or until the triggers stopped causing the outbreaks, while on a high dose of antivirals, that maybe a way to actually eradicate the virus and cure it? has anyone explored this? its an interesting thought to me. Everyone wants to stop the outbreaks, i'm wondering if we are doing this backwards??

does anyone have experience with the dmso stuff? or does anyone have any documented stories of anyone, anywhere, curing this virus?

also, what's the official stance on proving you are virus free? no outbreaks rights? that's pretty much the only thing we can check, cause the antibodies will stay in your blood, right? after a positive blood test, it will always be positive, right? is there any other tests?

anyone have any new news on new cures, or vaccines? from some quick searching the best case scenarios i think i saw, were a vaccine for women in maybe 2 years, and maybe a cure in 5? that might be wishful thinking though... seems like there are a few teams trying to figure this out.

Raynaud's Phenomenon :: Cured With Natural Remedies

Let me tell you I had full blown Raynaud's. I'd need roughly one hour recovery from an attack. Blue fingers white fingers, pain - the lot. I've got low blood pressure so I can't take medication. I have to go to hospital for a week for iloprost infusion. Anyway let me tell you what cured me. I take 3 pills. Butcher's broom, odorless garlic and gingko biloba. I had been taking just Gingko (which didn't work) but I was advised to take Butchers Broom in Holland and Barrett, they also said buy fish oil but I didn't like the thought. Anyway, it's only been 5 days but you could describe me as having bad circulation now but not Raynaud's. I've washed my hands with cold water, gone out without my mittens and I'm ok. I went to an event and minutes after entering I was shaking hands. My hands were warm!! You cannot imagine what it feels like to not have cold hands anymore. I was ready to saw my fingers off. This 'spring' has been awful but now I'm no colder than anyone else . Please buy these natural remedies, it'll change your life.

Menopause :: Natural Remedies For Hot Flashes? Red Clover And Black Cohosh?

I am pretty sure I am in perimenopause. Had 2 periods in a year and the last one was Sept. 47 years old and lately been feeling the heat BIG time for about 2 minutes a few times a day. My sleep pattern is changing and I feel exhausted after work but pick up after a 30 minute nap in the evening. Libido is low but that may be due to the "dryness" making "intimacy" quite uncomfortable. 

Otherwise I feel fine. Been looking into natural remedies but worried about the oestrogen type supplements (red clover and black cohosh)- I thought they would be ideal until i read about increase risk of women's cancers;-( Now I am just confused. I don't know if I should take anything but I just started Menopace to see if it helps.

Hytrin / Generic Terazosin To Help Urine Flow? Alternative/natural Remedies?

Got a couple questions for the board; have any of you been prescribed Hytrin or the generic Terazosin to help urine flow?

My Uro calls my condition bladder neck dysfunction and want to do a TRUP (send chills hearing that...yikes) to alleviate the weak urine flow I've had for about 3 -4 years.

The meds (Hytrin) does help but it makes my heart pound. I don't want to be on meds for this my whole life and I do NOT want to have surgery! I'm trying everything under-the-sun before going that route!

I'm 53 and eat vegan, otherwise good health, not overweight, work out 3 times a week and drink lots of water...well try to.

Considering acupuncture...but hoping for some tried and true other solutions?

Alternative Medicine :: Pain Management With Natural Herbs And Vitamins

This is my first time to post here, so please bare with me. I am 73, have severe back pain due to degenerative disc disease. I also have spondylolisthesis, and sciatica pain. I have seen a chiropractor for many years and have gotten steroid shots every 4 months for the past 2 years for the pain. None of this helps anymore. I have tried lots of herbal and alternative pain medications, none have helped. I got bronchitis last week and had to go to the Dr. She prescribed and antibiotic and Prednisone 10 Mg. for 6 days with a tapering off on the 6th day. I have not felt this good in a very long time. Very little pain. I felt like wonder woman. So I began searching for a natural steroid. I found that Dong Quai is noted for this. So I began it yesterday and am taking 4 pills per day at 250 mg./pill. I am also taking Curcumin2K and Dr. Al Sears Krill, 1 per day. How long do you think it will take before I know that this is working? I just cannot go back to the intense pain that I was in before the Prednisone.

Vasectomy :: Still In Pain After One Month

I had a no-scalpel vasectomy just over a month ago. After the first week, I noticed the cut ends of my vas (the part inside my scrotum that goes up into my body) were staying stiff, swollen and painful; the left side more than the right. After another week, I made a "nurse's visit" to the doctor because he was too busy for an appointment. He came in, gave my testicles a quick grab and declared the swelling and stiffening a normal inflammatory response.

It's now been two more weeks and the condition has not improved significantly. Physical activity (like yard work) and certain clothing increase the irritation and makes the inflammation worse.

Am I just a slow healer and this will eventually go away? Or have I settled into a known permanent side effect?

Vasectomy :: Pain In My Testicles Ever Since

I have lived with pain in my testicles ever since I made the biggest mistake of my life by having a vasectomy. This operation just has to be the most stupid thing I`ve ever done.

It was told it was ¬nothing much` but have been in pain for over sixteen years and it only gets worse. The long term risks have not been well enough explained and is much more common than was told to me.

The best advise I could give anyone thinking about the snip is DON`T

Do your research first before the Quick Snip leaves you with long term pain that can be very difficult if not impossible to get rid off .

Vasectomy :: Infection And Pain Afterwards

My husband had a vasectomy 2 weeks ago. 4 days after the operation he had severe pain and his testicles swelled up to double the size they normally are. We went back to the doctor and he said that he had a rare infection - put him on antibiotics and pain meds.

The antibiotics are now finished and although the swelling has gone down, his left testicle is rock hard and hasn't dropped. It is still painful sometimes and the pain runs up to and around to his lower back. We've been phoning the Urologist every day but he's either in theater or his is busy and doesn't return our calls.

Could it be possible that something went wrong? What can be done to fix the problem? And is it safe to resume normal sexual intercourse I'm afraid something bad will happen!

Vasectomy :: Pain After Surgery

I just had a complicated vasectomy. I had an undescended testicle when I was 12 that had a lot of scar tissue around it. The urologist that I saw said no problem but it would be done in the hospital because he had a hard time feeling the vas tube on the repaired testicle. He said it would take 10 minutes and it ended up taking a hour. He told me I would be sore for a long time, and he was right. It has been 2 weeks and I have begun to get morning erections. There is a string/tube that seems to be stretching around the base of my penis. It is painful when stretched. It seems to lead to the incision by the repaired testicle. Do you think the urethra tube that goes into my penis got sutured into the incision area? I urinate fine. Also, one vas tubes were described as pink-tan rubbery tissue and the one from the repaired one was described as white rubbery tissue. Do I need to be watchful of testicular cancer?
