“Infected with the herpes virus? The CBCD recommends taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

The genital herpes virus (HSV-2) can spread beyond the genitals to other body parts. For example, Dr. Lawrence Knott wrote that “herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) may cause primary infection of the oral cavity, typically in association with orogenital sex, but recurrent oral HSV-2 disease is rare.” (1) Dr. Knott was a former senior partner at Freezywater Primary Care Centre in Enfield, England. In an article reviewed by Dr. Sarah Marshall, M.D. it was noted that herpes can also infect “the hands and fingers (herpetic whitlow). Plastic or rubber gloves prevent its spread. The anus (herpes proctitis). Herpes proctitis is often more severe than other types of genital herpes. The eyes (herpes keratitis). Herpes can be transmitted from the mouth or genitals to the eyes. This can cause blindness if it is not treated early. If your eye is very irritated or if you feel pain in your eye, see your doctor as soon as possible. The liver, lungs, and joints. This occurs mostly in people who have impaired immune systems.” (2) Dr. Marshall is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of California, Davis, in Sacramento, California.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that people who suspect an infection with the herpes virus (HSV-2 or 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.” (3)  The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (3)

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

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.

Infection with HSV can cause pain and blistering in the infected body parts. When it comes to HSV-2, “most people infected with genital herpes have very minimal or no signs or symptoms of their disease. The first attack of herpes usually follows this course: Skin on or near the sex organ becomes inflamed. Skin may burn, itch, or be painful. Blister-like sores appear on or near the sex organs. Sores open, scab over, and then heal. Symptoms that may also be present when the virus first appears include: swollen glands, fever, headache, burning when passing urine, muscle aches, the first outbreak of herpes can last for several weeks. After the outbreak, the virus retreats to the nervous system, where it remains inactive until something triggers it to become active again.” (4)

“On average, people with herpes experience about four outbreaks a year. The first outbreak usually is the most painful and takes the longest to heal. The pain and recovery time often decrease with each outbreak.” (4)

What treatments are available for a herpes infection?

“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.” (3) There are also natural remedies that target the latent HSV. Two of these clinically backed remedies 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.
