While it’s commonly believed that herpes doesn’t have a cure, it’s probably a widely known fact that it’s highly treatable. However, some not-so-reliable but important research that has been done recently on some herpes treatments suggest that it may be possible to get rid of the condition for good.

While we don’t wish to get into that, we certainly want to explain you how you can easily “treat” herpes to a considerable extent, even if not completely.

Herpes Medications

You’re probably already aware of this. There are a few herpes medications out there that have been proven reasonably effective for many when it comes to controlling the outbreaks and symptoms.

While some do experience certain side effects of these medications, they are usually considered safe enough for most.

However, some major downsides of these drugs is that they are very expensive, and you usually have to take them very regularly in order to keep the outbreaks under check. This means that they are a very temporary solution, not to mention very expensive as well.

Finally, it’s also a little disappointing that these drugs are known to just suppress the symptoms, and not really help much in getting rid of them.

A Healthy Diet

A healthy diet certainly seems to be a reasonably effective and natural way of trying to keep the outbreaks under control. However, a healthy diet for herpes isn’t the same as a healthy diet in general, as it involves skipping certain foods which may otherwise be considered healthy.

The very first thing to do would be to avoid alcohol and smoking, as they tend to lead to flare ups, making it very difficult to control outbreaks. Similarly, eating fast food or processed food is almost like asking for trouble, as they tend to weaken your immune system, making it easier for the virus to cause outbreaks over the long term.

Finally, while there are many other things to consider, and an important one is that foods that are rich in arginine need to be avoided as well. Arginine is believed to be crucial for the growth of the herpes virus, which makes it obvious as to why you need to avoid its intake as much as possible.


There are also certain herbs out there that seem to be working surprisingly effectively not only for controlling the outbreaks, but also for improving your immune system and restricting the growth of the virus. In fact, there seems to be some evidence that some herbs may even help get rid of the outbreaks for good, which is obviously your ultimate goal while dealing with herpes.

Herpes Remover seems to be an excellent eBook to read if you want to learn about these herbs and achieve the same surprisingly positive results some others have managed to using them.

A Strong Immune System

A weak immune system is probably one of the last things you would want while dealing with herpes, as it makes it so much more challenging to control the outbreaks and restrict the virus. While shifting to a healthy diet and avoiding some things that we mentioned above is a good start, there’s a lot more to it that you can probably find through some research or in Herpes Remover, the eBook that we just talked about above.

HSV 2 Eraser seems to be a fairly popular product out there, which is apparently based around some treatments that aren’t considered very mainstream. There also seems to be a reasonable amount of hype around it, perhaps due to some tall claims by the vendor.

However, it’s important to note that based on our research, Herpes Eraser isn’t an ebook designed to permanently hsv 2 cure. Instead, it’s simply designed to make the condition more manageable, and even get rid of the outbreaks after following the treatments it suggests over a period of time.

While we won’t try to offer our opinion on the product, we would certainly be sharing something important below that might be linked to the aforementioned ebook and may turn out to be highly effective. Before we get to that, however, we think you need to understand the fact that your first goal while dealing with herpes may simply be to control the outbreaks.

Getting Rid of the Outbreaks

Apparently, many people with herpes simply try to go after the virus itself thinking they may be able to get rid of it for good, but it doesn’t seem to be turning out that way most often. The thing is that you are perhaps supposed to take one step at a time, and probably the first one should be trying to control the outbreaks, and gradually work towards stopping them altogether.

This may make your condition significantly more manageable, which will probably allow you to get into a position where you can think about taking further action against the virus. However, you may not want to go all after the virus, as without a strong immune system and a very good overall health, you’re probably very less likely to succeed at it.

That being said, working towards strengthening your immune system and improving your overall health may well turn out to be the things you need to focus on. They may help improve your resistance against the virus, making it extremely difficult for it to cause outbreaks. They may provide the base you require to get rid of the outbreaks for good, and hence it’s where you should probably be starting.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at something that seems to be highly effective at not only achieving the two things we mentioned above, but also in many other ways at getting rid of the outbreaks for good.

Diet Changes

Most products offering information and advice to deal with herpes effectively, including HSV 2 Eraser, don’t fail to mention the importance of making certain diet changes. Similarly, we just can’t emphasize enough how important it is to make the right diet changes. It can simply make it or break it when it comes to controlling and getting rid of outbreaks.

Furthermore, if you aren’t having the right diet (for herpes), the treatments you may be following may end up being considerably less effective than they otherwise would. In other words, managing herpes better without making the required diet changes may just not be possible.

So with that said, let’s take a look at some of the most important changes you need to make in order to make it more challenging for the herpes virus to cause outbreaks as well as reproduce itself.

Avoiding Foods Rich in Arginine

Arginine may be an important amino acid, but while dealing with herpes, it’s something that must be avoided. It’s because it’s arginine that helps the herpes virus grow and reproduce itself. Similarly, it also makes it conveniently easier for it to cause outbreaks at will, which is obviously something that can wreak havoc on your overall health.

However, you need not worry about ending up having a deficiency of this amino acid, as your body produces it in certain quantities anyway. So while you won’t be able to completely stop its production, you need to focus on reducing your arginine intake as much as possible.

This makes some arginine-rich foods, such as the ones mentioned below, very poor food choices to include in your diet.

  • Seeds and nuts
  • Lentils
  • Red meat
  • Gelatin (found in many food products)
  • Protein supplements
  • Chocolate
  • Oats

Similarly, there are some foods that are believed to be very acidic in nature, and may hence end up triggering an outbreak. Needless to mention, such foods should be avoided as well. Below are some examples of acidic foods.

  • Alcohol
  • All processed foods
  • Junk foods
  • Foods containing artificial flavors and other similar ingredients
  • Caffeine

Including Lysine-Rich Foods in Your Diet

Just like how arginine helps the herpes virus reproduce and cause outbreaks easily, lysine is believed to do the exact opposite of that. It too is an amino acid, but it works very differently when it comes to dealing with the herpes virus.

Lysine is believed to be very effective at restricting the growth of the herpes virus, and making it very difficult for it to cause outbreaks. In fact, increasing intake of lysine is considered to be one of the best ways to fight the herpes virus and decrease both the frequency and severity of the outbreaks.

During our research, we found that there have been several clinical studies done on the effectiveness of lysine against the herpes virus and based on the results, it can easily be concluded that lysine definitely helps get rid of the outbreaks to a great extent.

Furthermore, the results of the studies apparently also went on to suggest that lysine may be playing a crucial role in strengthening your immune system, too, which is one of the major requirements to fight the herpes virus effectively.

Here’s a look at some of the foods that come with a very high amount of lysine:

  • Homemade yogurt – Yogurt products sold in the market aren’t recommended, and the same goes for yogurt with flavors and other artificial ingredients, including gelatin
  • Milk – Drinking two to three glasses of milk a day is highly recommended to get a huge lysine boost
  • Many autumn fruits such as apples and pears
  • Vegetables such as brussel sprouts and beans


Simple Steps to Stay Away from Addictions

One glass of wine twice a week is said to be beneficial for improving blood flow, enhancing memory and better skin conditions. When this glass of wine grows to become a bottle of alcohol it starts threatening your heart health, kidneys, liver, blood veins and vessels, brain and the whole body. There are three types of drinkers, namely occasional, moderate and heavy types. The next stage to heavy drinking is said to be alcoholism for which there is no known cure yet in the medical field. Nicotine is another addictive substance which is an essential ingredient in cigarettes. It said to be responsible for many disorders affecting health and fitness.

 Steps to Stay Away from Addictions

Moderate Drinking

Alcohol consumption is said to be moderate when it is regulated at 13 drinks in a week for men and 7 for women. 350 millilitres of beer 140 millilitres of wine and 40 millilitres of hard alcoholic beverages in one drink could help in reducing heart disorders. Eating nuts, pork snacks and kebab before your drink can help in easing of alcohol effects. Chicken salads, fish and lean meat after the drink help in digesting the beverages and avoiding next day hangover.

Avoid Smoking

Every time you get stressed out or tensed up your automatic reaction is to reach for a cigarette. A long puff of smoke gives you the illusion of driving away your stress factors and making you feel fresh. In fact it is the opposite which is happening within your body and brain. The cells are getting addicted to nicotine by a process of absorption. Once nicotine enters the cells, there is practically no way it can be removed.  Lungs, blood veins, heart, skin and other sensitive parts of central nervous system start getting weaker due to excessive smoking. But quitting is not as easy as you imagine.

  • Withdrawal symptoms are compounded by the release of epinephrine chemical from your brain which makes it impossible to concentrate and relax. Gradual reduction of smoking (for example three cigarettes a day) could help in long term recovery.
  • Eating chocolates or peppermint when you get a craving for nicotine is known to be helpful. Ginger can help in reducing feelings of nausea and removing toxic substances leftover in your body due to cigarettes. Pepper is a known medicine for clearing your lungs and respiratory system.

Stop Weed and Drugs

People smoke Marijuana for the effects it produces, taking them to a state of hallucination and escaping from reality of life. Soon it becomes an addictive behaviour for the body and brain cannot function without it. Total abstinence is supposed to be the only way in which once can stay away from the addictive behaviour. If the addition is in critical stages one may need medical treatment and therapy before going on programs to stay clean “one day at a time” which are also applicable to alcoholism. Staying   away from additions after being affected by them is not an easy task and needs a desire to stay away as the primary requirement.
