Are There Genital Herpes Remedies that Reduce Symptoms? CBCD Reviews the Medical Evidence
Industry: Health & Fitness
Working-age Americans are going without prescription drugs because of cost concerns. (1) CBCD reviews the evidence and recommends two affordable, natural HSV remedies.
New York (PRUnderground) October 12th, 2014
Many individuals infected with HSV-1 or HSV-2 cannot afford the leading prescription drugs against the herpes virus. Dr. Felland and colleagues wrote in a study that “one in seven Americans under age 65 reported not filling a prescription in the previous year because they couldn’t afford the medication.” (1) Dr. Felland and colleagues are from the Center for Studying Health System Change. The authors continued writing that “rising prescription drug costs and less generous drug coverage likely contributed to the growth in nonelderly Americans–from 10.3 percent in 2003 to 13.9 percent in 2007–who went without a prescribed medication.” (1) For example, according to goodrx.com, the cost of a month’s supply of the top name brand herpes medication (90 pills), is $1401.00 at the CVS Pharmacy. (2) The cost of the generic brand is only slightly less. The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that HSV infected individuals take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. These natural HSV remedies were shown to safely reduce herpes symptoms in two separate post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. In addition to being proven effective, these remedies are also highly affordable.

The formula of Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against the herpes simplex virus, and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the HSV … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (3) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (3)
Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach.
Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are not drugs. That is, they were not approved by the FDA as drugs. They are dietary supplements designed to help the immune system target latent viruses. In contrast, FDA approved drugs against herpes were designed to treat symptoms associated with a herpes infection.
According to herpesnews.com, the cost of a month’s supply of the leading name brand herpes drug, one of the most common anti-herpes medications, is $1275 for the brand name at the CVS Pharmacy. (4) The cost of the generic brand is only slightly less.
While the generic brand is significantly cheaper, this herpes medication still costs at least $140.00 for 90 pills. (4)
In contrast, Novirin is $52.99, which is $87.01 cheaper than the generic brand and well over $1,000 cheaper than the name brand. Gene-Eden-VIR is $42.99, which is $97.01 cheaper than the generic brand, and is also over $1,000 cheaper than the name brand.
The CBCD therefore recommends that individuals infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2) take either Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR, which were designed to help the immune system target the latent herpes virus.
