Did you have Chickenpox or a “cold sore”?
Most everyone answers yes to this question. If you answered yes then you have a Herpes infection. Both types of viral infections are easily transferred by contact with someone who has a current outbreak. You likely may have both!
Herpes zoster (HZ) commonly known as shingles is a viral disease characterized by a painful skin rash with blisters in a limited area on one side of the body often in a stripe. The initial infection causes the illness Chickenpox, which usually occurs in children and young adults. Once the Chickenpox is gone, the virus is not eliminated from the body but can go on to cause shingles. Herpes zoster is not the same disease as Herpes simplex 1 and 2, despite the similar name, though both Herpes zoster and Herpes simplex belong to the same viral family.
Herpes zoster becomes dormant in some of our nerve cells without causing any symptoms. Many years after a Chickenpox infection, the virus may break out of nerve cells and cause a viral infection of the skin in the area around the nerve. The virus may spread from one nerve to anot
her causing a painful rash. Although the rash usually heals within two to four weeks, most people experience nerve pain for months or years, a condition called “post herpetic neuralgia”. In the past outbreaks usually occurred in the elderly but now it is common for anyone at any age who is under great stress or has a compromised immune system.
Herpes simplex 1 and 2 cause the oral or genital forms of what we commonly simply call “Herpes”. It also spreads in a way similar to the HZ virus, though it has a different reaction to our bodies and to our social life.
Herpes simplex is a viral disease caused by both Herpes simplex virus Type 1 and Type 2. Oral herpes, the visible symptoms of which are often called cold sores or fever blisters, is an infection of the face or mouth. Oral herpes is the most common form and Genital herpes is the second most common form of infection. However, both types can be found both orally and genitally!
Recurrent outbreaks may occur from time to time, especially in times of stress, using alcohol, or when eating foods high in a protein called L-Arginine, found commonly in nuts and chocolate among other foods.
It can be eliminated!
Treatments with antivirals can reduce outbreaks and may alleviate the severity of symptomatic episodes but will not get rid of the infection. Medical Ozone (a gas) is the only medicine known to destroy and rid the body of this horrible infection.
Please don’t believe the commercials on television saying you can never get rid of it. Though with no promises or guarantees, Medical Ozone has been used all over the world to treat infections that normally cannot be fixed, i.e. Herpes in all its forms. Medical Ozone is a gas that when it enters the body intravenously acts like ”glue” to all viruses, bacteria, fungus, yeast and mold. It destroys or inactivates them so the body can remove them completely.
Most importantly Medical Ozone does it without harmful adverse reactions or side effects so typical with pharmaceuticals. In more than 50 countries, over 45,000 physicians have been using it worldwide for over 70 years to successfully and safely treat diseases such as Herpes.
So don’t give up hope and don’t wait! It is absolutely possible to eliminate Herpes from your body.
