Some Women Ignore the Role of Contraception in Preventing STDs; CBCD Reviews the Medical Evidence
Industry: Health & Fitness
Women who don’t use contraception are less likely to practice safe sex (1) The CBCD reviews the evidence and recommends two natural antiviral remedies.

Contraceptions have two functions. These are birth control, and protection against STDs. Although it is a common belief that these two functions are well-accepted. As it turns out, this is not the case. Some groups of women behave as if contraception is only linked to birth control. Dr. Elizabeth Boskey wrote that “Women who don’t need contraception, either because of age, sexual orientation, or other lifestyle issues, are less likely to take advantage of recommended preventative care.” (1) In some cases, this can be life threatening. For example, “Lack of regular pap smears among lesbians and older women has been implicated in their increased risk of dying from cervical cancer.” (1) Because these groups of women believe protection is not necessary, they increase their risk of infection with the genital herpes virus (HSV-2) and the human papillomavirus (HPV). Dr. Boskey is an assistant professor in the Master’s of Public Health program at SUNY Downstate, where she teaches the graduate course in Human Sexual Behavior.
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that women infected with the genital herpes virus (HSV-2) or the human papillomavirus (HPV) 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 and HPV … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)
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.
What treatments are available when a woman becomes infected with genital herpes?
“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.” (2) There are also natural remedies that target the latent HSV. Two of these clinically backed remedies are Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR.
What treatments are available when a woman becomes infected with HPV?
“There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission.” (2) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.
The CBCD therefore recommends that HSV-2 and HPV infected individuals take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (http://www.cbcd.net) is a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization under section 501(c) 3 of the IRS tax code. The center’s mission is to advance the research on the biology of chronic disease and to accelerate the discovery of a cure for these diseases. The CBCD first published Dr. Hanan Polansky’s highly acclaimed “Purple” book, entitled “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease” in 2003. In this book, he explains how foreign DNA fragments can cause many major diseases. The book has been read by more than 5,000 scientists around the world, and has been reviewed in more than 20 leading scientific journals.
