Genital Herpes Virus (HSV-2) Can Block the Urethra; CBCD Reviews the Scientific Literature

Industry: Health & Fitness

A review of the scientific literature reveals that HSV-1 and HSV-2 can cause a blockage of the urethra. The CBCD discusses the medical literature.

“Are you infected with HSV? We recommend taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

A person may experience bladder problems and not realize that the herpes virus is responsible. Knowing the cause is important since HSV caused bladder problems can sometimes be severe. In fact, the Mayo Clinic says that “In some cases, the sores associated with genital herpes can cause inflammation around the tube that delivers urine from your bladder to the outside world (urethra). The swelling can close the urethra for several days, requiring the insertion of a catheter to drain your bladder.” (1) In addition, “The herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) may infect the urethra, making urination painful and emptying of the bladder difficult. Other viral UTIs, such as bladder and kidney infections, do not usually develop unless a person’s immune system is impaired.” (2)

The CDC notes that “Herpes is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that any sexually active person can get.” (See the CDC, last updated May 15, 2014) (3) Additionally, “most people with genital herpes infection do not know they have it.” (3) This means that if a bladder problem occurs, an individual may need to get tested for HSV.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that individuals take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against the latent HSV. 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 HSV 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 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.” (5) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

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

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.

Doctor Siamak T. Nabili, MD, MPH says that “An infection in the pelvic area, such as herpes, can interfere with nerves in the (bladder) area. Inflammation and swelling caused by infections can also compress the urethra.” (6) Dr. Nabili is a member of the American College Physicians and the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.

Doctors Mancino, Delessandro, and their team agree with Dr. Nabili. “Complications in urinary tract nervous routes due to herpes viruses as VZV and HSV-2 are well known. Acute urinary retention and chronic neuropathic pain are not rare when sacral dermatomes are involved by these viruses.” (7) Dr. Mancino and his team are from the Clinic of Infectious Diseases, University of Chieti, Italy.

The CBCD believes that these facts, combined with the medical evidence presented above, indicate the need to target latent viruses like HSV.
