New York (PRUnderground) July 13th, 2014
Most individuals deal with emotional trauma when they receive a genital herpes diagnosis. Dr. Anna Wald, M.D. said that “Herpes has a stigma attached to it that even HIV doesn’t have anymore.” (2) This is because “genital herpes is sexually transmitted. Growing up in our society, most of us come to view a sexually transmitted disease as a fate that befalls only those who have done something wrong.” (1) Womenshealth.com says that one of the best ways to begin feeling better is to find an antiviral treatment that reduces physical symptoms. (3) In other words, when someone becomes sad and depressed over their herpes infection, it is because they feel they have no hope. They feel they have no control over their lives. They feel doomed. Giving these herpes patients back a sense of hope and control is therefore the first step in healing their emotional trauma. A search for an effective antiviral herpes treatment is a first step toward an emotional recovery.
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that people infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1) take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products 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.” (4) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (4)
Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR 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, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
While it is not likely that the genital herpes virus (HSV-2) will kill an individual, it still causes symptoms that may be difficult to deal with, physically and emotionally. “No one should underestimate the havoc the diagnosis can play with emotions. You may feel ‘dirty’ or sexually undesirable. You may get depressed thinking about a lifetime of symptoms.” (5)
Going from being powerless and helpless to regaining control is directly linked to knowledge about the condition, and understanding what one can do about it. The CBCD therefore recommends learning everything about the herpes virus, and specifically the active and latent phases of the virus. The Center also recommends learning about the available antiviral treatment options. These include both antiviral drugs and natural antiviral remedies.
According to Medline Plus, “Once you have HSV-2, the virus hides within nerve cells and remains in the body. It can remain latent for a long time.” The site goes on to say, “The virus can reactivate at any time. This may be triggered by: fatigue, genital irritation, menstruation, physical or emotional stress, injury etc. Some people have genital herpes attacks only once a year, while others have them so often the symptoms never seem to go away. Repeated attacks are generally milder in men.” (6)
So, what is latency?
After an initial period of activity, herpes establishes what scientists call a latent infection. When a virus is latent, it behaves like it is sleeping. It is latent.
How does one defeat the latent herpes virus?
The best defense against a latent herpes infection is a healthy immune system. That’s why the CBCD recommends Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR, two natural herpes remedies designed to target the latent HSV virus.
“The key to your health is to reduce the level of the latent viruses in your body to harmless levels.” – Dr. Hanan Polansky
By helping your own body’s immune system to maintain low concentrations of the latent herpes virus, you are also taking control away from the herpes virus, and giving it back to yourself.
What anti-herpes drugs are available?
“Two types of antiviral treatments against HSV are available: topical and oral. The treatments include penciclovir, acyclovir, famciclovir, and valaciclovir. However, their effectiveness is limited. For instance, a meta-analysis of five placebo-controlled and two dose comparison studies evaluated the effect of aciclovir, famciclovir or valaciclovir on symptoms. The meta-analysis showed that oral antiviral therapy decreases the duration and the associated pain of an outbreak by merely one day.” (4)
What anti-herpes natural remedies are available?
There are two clinically backed natural remedies. These are Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR.
In light of the above information, the CBCD recommends that individuals infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2) take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.
