Industry: Health & Fitness

Review of the scientific literature reveals that herpes can cause complications in the eye that may lead to blindness. The CBCD discusses the medical literature.

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

Dr. Michelle Wright says that “severe and recurrent herpes simplex eye infections may lead to serious scarring, impaired vision and even blindness in some cases. If blindness does develop, a corneal transplant may be the only option to restore vision.” (1) Dr. Wright is the Medical Director of HealthFirst, a Swiss company delivering a range of child and adult First Aid Courses and Health Education Seminars for individual members of the public as well as providing tailor-made training to schools, businesses and NGOs. Inflammation and scarring of the cornea is sometimes referred to as a cold sore on the eye.

“Caused by the type 1 herpes simplex virus, eye herpes (ocular herpes) is a common, recurrent viral infection affecting the eyes. This type of herpes virus can cause inflammation and scarring of the cornea that sometimes is referred to as a cold sore on the eye. Herpes of the eye can be transmitted through close contact with an infected person whose virus is active.” (2)

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that individuals take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against the latent herpes virus. 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 EBV 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 and other viruses)…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) 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.

“Most episodes of active infection are due to a reactivation of the virus at some point, often years after a primary infection (the first time you noticed symptoms of an infection). Symptoms include: redness of the eye – mainly around the cornea, ache or pain in the eye, photophobia (discomfort when opening the eyes in bright light), watering of the eye, blurring of vision (and) you may also notice a blistery skin rash around the eyelids (but not in all cases). It is usually one eye that is affected.” (1)

Anyone with a herpes infection, especially HSV-1, can develop at least one episode of active herpes in the eye. Almost everyone who develops a herpes eye infection has had cold sores at some point in their lives. Those who wear contacts may develop a herpes infection more often than those who do not. (1)

The CBCD therefore suggests that individuals take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin to help their immune system target the latent herpes (HSV-1) virus.
