This is part four of a series on HSV-1, HSV-2 and Herpes Zoster.
In addition to the other conditions now believed to be linked to herpes simplex infections, there is new evidence that even more health situations may have HSV as an underlying factor.
Herpes and Alzheimers link studied, in people who have both HSV-1 and a gene called ApoE4. This same article details a complication known as Eczema Herpeticum, which can afflict HSV patients who have pre-existing skin conditions or a compromised immune system.
Other potential herpes-related complications that anyone with a compromised immune system and HSV infection should note include arthritis, increased risk of cancer of the throat, ulcers in the stomach lining, certain types of kidney disease and blood disease, and inflammation of the cardiovascular arteries. Although these, like Herpes Encephalitis, are considered rare, they pose a greater threat to those with a compromised immune system so should be ruled out if symptoms warrant such evaluation.
The point Im trying to make here is that this virus, herpes simplex, and all its strains are not just stds. They are systemic infections that can cause far-reaching and very dangerous health problems if not managed carefully.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a proponent of prescription drugs. I suspect that Valtrex will present with some side effects in the future that are not now known, and I sincerely hope Im wrong about that. My path to healing has always been the natural healing path. Luckily, nature does have some of the most potent antiherpetic substances on earth.
Essential oils for herpes work so well for so many because eos can pass the blood/brain barrier, which means rapid absorption and assimilation.
Ive added an entire section on the herpes simplex virus over at the wellness library. You can start on that series here:
And rather than jump on the fear bandwagon of Valtrex and the drug companies, lets arm ourselves with information and take aggressive action to stop herpes now.
