Herpes has no cure once the Herpes Simplex Virus enters the body. Almost fifty million people in United States are infected with Herpes Simplex Virus. The fact that even more astonishing is that almost 80% of the infected population is not aware of the illness because the symptoms do not occur so soon. Once the HSV enters the body, it goes to “sleep” mode and becomes “activated” only after some time. This may take 6-10 days or even more to show the first set of symptoms. HSV-1 causes oral herpes and HSV-2 causes genital herpes. But studies have shown that HSV-1 leads to genital herpes in many cases. Almost 85% of the genital herpes cases were diagnosed to have been infected by HSV-1. Causes of Herpes Herpes is transmitted by direct contact by the following means  Anal, oral and vaginal sex  Unprotect sexual contact  Kissing  Mensuration  Touching the broken skin  Pregnancy  Hormonal changes  Abdominal weight gain The indirect modes of transmission are as follows  Sharing towels and bath tubs with infected people  Sharing razors  Infected blood transfusion  Surgery near the genitals  Dysfunctional prostate gland   Ayurveda for Herpes When the initial symptoms are noticed, it is essential to get it diagnosed immediately.

  If you are a long time sufferer of herpes, then you know all too well about the discomfort and symptoms that show up at the most unexpected times. Your doctor has probably explained to you that you that there is no cure for herpes and you may experience outbreaks for the rest of your life. You likely had left the doctor’s office with very little hope, but a prescription for infinite refills. Even though your doctor and the internet will tell you that you aren’t alone and read off statistics that tell you that a large percentage of people have genital herpes, you will still feel dirty. You will feel like you did something wrong. You might even slip into a state of depression. But wait, the game is not yet over. Medicines are not the only thing that can cure disease. For infections like herpes, we need to look beyond conventional medications.   If we talk about the traditional methods of treating herpes, we don’t have much option. The same set of drugs was prescribed a decade back and the same thing is being given to patients today. Doctors are very quick to prescribe medication. After all, it’s what they’re trained to do and have been doing for centuries. It’s true; some prescription medications do a great job of eliminating the itching, burning, and unsightly rashes that come from a herpes outbreak. But they not only cost more than a few dollars regularly, but also come tightly coupled with bundle of probable side effects. The common antiviral medications like Acyclovir and its variants are the generally prescribed medicine to treat herpes. Acyclovir being the oldest has a larger […]



With the ever increasing number of herpes patients it is high time we hear the news about a complete cure of herpes. The disease which is now affecting one out of every 6 people in the United States is soon going to spread so fast that it would be impossible for the other 5 to stay away from the virus. Every now and then we get excited after reading the news of a new method evolved to deal with herpes, but once we go into the details, it is yet another ineffective treatment and nothing more than that. Once again our dream of living a herpes free life crashes and we get back in the reality soon. This cycle has been continuing from years and all the victims of the deadly virus are still living with the virus. Some of us have become used to it and others re still struggling from the heartbreaking fact that they have this life long infection. At this point of time we need to completely change the viewpoint and stop thinking in a conventional manner if we want to cure herpes. If we do not do it right now with a strong determination of treating herpes holistically, the day is not far away when almost all of us will be carrying the infection. You might not believe it at first but I am declaring it only after going through all the data and figures related to infection in the past 10 years. HSV generally remains dormant. Many people never have symptoms even though they are carrying the virus. The symptoms, if at all they occur are not feeling well, fever, blisters and ulceration on […]

Herpes is caused by Herpes Simplex Virus, which is of two types; Type-1 and Type-2. HSV-1 is known to cause oral herpes while HSV-2 causes genital herpes. But studies have proved that HSV-1 can cause both oral and genital herpes. It is a fact that almost 90 percent of the U.S. population is suffering from herpes, but the only half the infected population knows that they are affected by it. The maximum number of cases that has been diagnosed is for genital herpes. The chances of getting a recurrent episode of herpes outbreaks are higher in the case of genital herpes when compared to oral herpes. It is important to note the symptoms at an early stage and consult a doctor for early treatment. However being infected by HSV doesn’t mean the end of life. After being diagnosed with herpes, it is not wise enough to lose hopes on curing it.

The side effects of these medicines are even more complicated than that of the disease itself.   Side Effects of Herpes Medicines Kidney dysfunction Toxicity in the nervous system […]

There is no cure for Herpes as such, but there are treatment and other natural medicines which can remove Herpes from occurring again and again.

Can Herpes Be Cured?

Herpes is a highly contagious disease caused by Herpes Simplex Virus. It is classified as Type-1(HSV-1) and Type-2(HSV-2). Oral Herpes, whose symptoms are cold sores and blisters near the mouth and on face, is caused by HSV-1. Outbreaks in and around the genitals is caused by HSV-2, leading to Genital Herpes. The major concern about Herpes is that, the virus once entering the body, goes to “Sleep” state and become “Active” only after sometime. Most of the time, the person infected with HSV does not know the fact until the onset of the first set of symptoms. It may seem to be mild rashes with itching sensation, but things may get worse in the second round of symptoms. Painful blisters, weakness, sore throat, swollen glands and fever occur in the next stage. According to American Sexual Health Association, more than 50% of the adults have oral herpes. Children too get infected when they come into contact with the adults while kissing or touching the broken skin. CDC statistics show that 1 in 6 Americans aged 14-49 carry HSV-2. This is alarming stats because according to this 16.2% of the adults are infected with Genital Herpes. The point to be considered here is that HSV-2 is not solely responsible for genital herpes and HSV-1 can also carry the risk of infection equally. Another study reveals that almost 75%-80% of American are infected by at least one Herpes Simplex Virus (Type-1 or Type-2). The above findings can be far more realistic because, the chance of spreading genital herpes from someone having cold sores during oral sex is relatively high. A person affected by HSV-2, can transmit the infection to a healthy person […]



Herpes outbreaks can be painful and depressing for the people who are infected by the virus. Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) goes to “sleep” once it enters the body and becomes “active” after a while, causing cold sores and blisters. Both genital herpes and oral herpes are transmitted by direct contact with the broken skin of the infected person.   Causes of Herpes The reasons for transmission of Herpes are, Direct contact with the open sores Kissing Unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex Multiple sexual partners Over-exposure to UV rays Touching the blisters or sores Direct contact with the mucous membrane Surgery in or around genital Prolonged stress and illness triggers herpes outbreaks   Symptoms The symptoms might not be visible for weeks or months after the Herpes virus has entered the body.

“Herpes is incurable” is a total myth! Misleading information about herpes has been doing rounds on the internet. What herpes does to the mind is far more dangerous than the body. It has devastating effects, psychologically and over the time this takes the form of dangerous mental disorders like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. All they need is little changes in lifestyle and motivation to cope up with their illness. It is a fact that herpes outbreaks are painful and quite embarrassing to be discussed openly with others. The recurring nature of herpes outbreaks makes this disease most dreaded of all. It is necessary to incorporate positive changes in lifestyle and complete the course of medicines.

Nature has cure for almost any disease in the world. But people trust drugs and medicines more than natural remedies. Herpes antibiotics are widely used in the form of creams or tablets, in order to get relief from the symptoms. It also helps in further outbreaks by attacking the DNA strands of the Herpes Simplex Virus. Although HSV has no way out once it get in the body, it is curable by following healthy and hygienic lifestyle. Every pharmaceutical medicine has its own side effects. It may reduce the length and period of outbreaks but it leads to other health issues like headache, poor digestion, fatigue, loss of appetite and constipation. Prolonged exposure to these drugs might lead to behavioral disorders like mood swings, depression, anger and irritability.

Herpes Simplex Virus is easily transmitted through sexual contact or physical contact. The fact that nearly 80% of adults in the United States of America are affected by either oral or genital Herpes, is truly an alarming figure. What’s even more shocking is that only 25% of the affected are aware of their disease. Herpes Simplex Virus, after entering the body, multiplies itself and the symptoms occur when it becomes active. It starts with small blisters, itching and redness in the genital area or rashes in the mouth area. Proper diagnosis to confirm if it Herpes is important before taking any medicinal drugs.   Diagnosis of Herpes The following medical examinations are carried out on the patient to rule out or to confirm the presence of HSV in the body.   1. The PCR Blood Test This test is commonly conducted for people with genital herpes. Blood from the infected body is tested for DNA bits of the Herpes Simplex Virus.   2. The Cell Culture Test In this test, the culture is taken directly from the sores and examined for DNA strands of HSV. The above two tests hold good only during current infections. It may show false or negative results in the case of healing sores or between concurrent outbreaks. It cannot determine the early stages of infection when the symptoms are not visible. So estimation of being affected by Herpes is difficult with the above two tests. It requires an even more advanced test to prove the presence of HSV in the body during early stages itself. This can be confirmed only by an Antibody test.   3. Antibody Test Antibodies are the substance produced by the […]

A lot of people lose hope on getting rid of herpes, once they are diagnosed with it. It can be emotionally testing to live with Herpes because of the fear of passing it on to someone else.

But people bank upon natural remedies for prolonged relief without any side effects.   Honey for Herpes Honey was a conventional medicine for all infections back in 19th century.

overcoming herpes stigma


Herpes has become a synonym for stress, anxiety, shame and disgrace these days. The time we hear this in public, our behavior changes completely and we fill with all the negative thoughts. No matter how advanced we are today, there is still a hesitation in talking about it and we cant overcome herpes stigma. And things get even bitter if by mistake we get to know that someone near us has it. Herpes does not bother us physically as much as it breaks us emotionally. The virus targets our cells, but we and our society makes herpes effect our mind even more than that. One day I called my friend but he didn’t answer. Thinking he might be busy with something I went back to my work. Entire week passed by and I did not see him in college. He totally disappeared and even then there was no answer from his number. I was curious and more than that was worried of what could have happened. As I could not resist myself anymore with all the bad scenes coming to my mind every now and then, I decided to visit him. While I was on my way, I was thinking what might have happened to him. Will he be alright? But if everything was fine with him, then why was he not responding to my calls, neither he came to any of the classes. Finally I concentrated on driving while convincing myself with a hope that he will be okay. I rang the bell again and again as I could not wait anymore. After a while he came out, and I had a big smile on my face after seeing […]

living with herpes


It is not an uncommon thing to see people living there entire life carrying the virus inside their bodies. But then why living with herpes is given so much hype unnecessarily. No doubt it is a disease that is bothering mankind and spreading with a very high speed. Also everybody will agree that the reoccurring episodes of outbreaks, the irritating cold sores and the symptoms really create trouble in our lives. Still I would say that living with herpes is not as much traumatic as it is made out to be. Dealing with herpes isn’t typically harmful at all; it is just more of an inconvenience rather than a complicated state. It does not lead to any other serious diseases. It does not cause long-term deterioration of anything, and will not cause a person to be unhealthy in any way. It just means that you sometimes get cold sores, usually on your mouth or on your genitals. The virus for which so much of research is going on is not as much dangerous as it is thought to be. Actually there are times when this herpes simplex virus comes into action and that leads to outbreaks. But do you know when it occurs? Or do you really have an idea of how many times the virus becomes active in one’s lifetime? Let me tell you that many people live their lives carrying the virus and never have any symptoms. There are herpes patients who have the virus and due to no or mild attacks do not know they are infected. It seems hard to believe but it is really true that many people with herpes die without even realizing their infection. […]

Herpes outbreak on lips


Herpes is not a joke, at least not for those who are a sufferer of this disease. All of us are now aware of the two different types of herpes infections. One is genital herpes, which is believed to be caused by HSV type 2, and the other one is the herpes outbreak on lips which is said to be caused due to the HSV type 1 virus. This is scientific differentiation and one major myth about the two types is that genital herpes is more dangerous than oral herpes. I think while designating herpes outbreak on lips lower than genital in terms of severity; the separators might have not taken the emotional issues into account. Herpes outbreak on lips is something that we can not hide from others, no matter how hard we try for that. This attacks on our confidence and self esteem. We break our relations, isolate ourselves form the society and our group. Much before our relatives and friends get a chance to do that, we our self start feeling dirty about it and live in a feeling of guilt. This feeling of shame and isolation makes herpes outbreak on lips even more painful and full of humiliation. Since the infection site is on the lips and mouth, it is impossible to manage hiding it. Everybody around you will know you have herpes as soon as you step out of your house with an outbreak. It is hence a compulsion in case of herpes outbreak on lips to treat the cold sore on the face pretty soon. But there is no magic wand to do this, right? If it was there, all of us would have been living a […]

cold-sore herpesecure


Cold sores, also known as fever blisters, are common viral infection. these small painful blisters can potentially appear anywhere on the entire body of the carrier of virus, but the most common places are lips, mouth, face, inside or on the nose. They are tiny, fluid-filled blisters on and around your lips. Cold sores are a result of herpes infection. Cold sores and herpes are not two different things, but closely related, so much so that one can’t exist if the other is not there. It is not rare to see it on your own face or on someone else’s. But we take it for granted as they disappear gradually after slight discomfort and pain. Have you ever thought of what is the reason behind these sores. I am sure nobody bothers even to visit the doctor until it is really painful. Because we know they are common. They will come and will also go away soon. Nobody suspects anything serious in these. We all take them lightly and have a tendency to let it go. The same thing I also did till things were bearable. One morning I woke up and as a regular practice took my toothbrush in hand. The moment I looked into the mirror, I was literally shocked. I was feeling slight pain near my lips last evening but I ignored it. But I never imagined the pain would turn into something like this. There were ugly sores around my lips. It was so awful that I myself was finding difficult to look at. Although it was just a blister, I was no comfortable with the idea of going out with this. I tried to cover […]

These figures are a result of easy transmissibility of the virus form one to the next. The transmission of this disease can be due to unprotected vaginal or anal sex, having oral sex with a person who gets cold sores, sharing sex toys and having genital contact with an infected person in any possible way. If a mother infected with herpes delivers a child then there is strong possibility of the child being infected. You need to see the doctor immediately if you suspect any of the above stated symptoms, even in mild form, as genital helps also remains dormant like most of the other sexually transmitted diseases. The disease is spreading at an unstoppable rate. Hence it is important to get a glimpse of what the virus actually is and how it can harm our body. It is beneficial in both the cases, in treating the disease and avoiding it from transmission. Once you reach the roots, it becomes much easier to deal with herpes.   Herpes simplex virus is the root cause of the sexually transmitted disease, herpes. What makes it so crucial is its easy, unavoidable transmission and difficulty in complete removal from human body.   There are two types of herpes viruses causing herpes, i.e. HSV Type 1 and HSV Type 2. Although oral herpes is typically known as cold sores or fever blisters, while genital herpes gets the distinction of the name “herpes,” they’re actually quite similar. 50 % of there DNA is similar as well as there symptoms also.   When it comes to categorization, oral herpes is herpes simplex 1, while genital herpes is herpes simplex 2.

Herpes is a sexually transmitted diseases caused by HSV (herpes simplex virus). This virus affects the genitals, the cervix, as well as the skin in other parts of the body. Herpes is a chronic condition that may lead to genital ulcers sometimes. Today we shall discuss ways to cure herpes naturally. But before talking directly about ways to cure herpes naturally let us first talk a bit about how familiar condition  herpes is becoming.   Many people never have symptoms even though they are carrying the virus. The symptoms, if they occur, include not feeling well, fever, blisters and ulceration on the cervix, pain while urinating and vaginal discharge, cold sores around the mouth and as blisters on the genitals.   It is easily human transmissible. The virus can be transmitted from the carrier to an uninfected person while kissing, unprotected anal, oral or vaginal sex, skin contact, intercourse with multiple partners, exposure to ultraviolet rays, surgery on the genital area, touching the blisters or sores, direct contact with mucous membranes or saliva of the infected person, illness, stress, menstruation, fatigue and surgery also trigger herpes outbreak. Herpes virus can also transfer to a new born baby from a herpes infected mother at the time of vaginal delivery.   Considering it as an incurable disease with the help of antivirals, there is a shift towards curing it naturally. We had some ways to cure herpes naturally but we overlook the useful remedies at home and rush to the medicine store urgently in case of a sudden outbreak or for any other reason. This is due to strict dependency on antivirals. But it is high time now to realize that these […]


One day on just a casual talk I got to know that one of my closest friend who himself was a doctor, was a herpes victim. He told me that soon after being diagnosed he felt shameful and embarrassed, and also he was afraid of telling anyone he had it. He felt guilty about it and was full of self-blame thinking that they “brought it on him”. He was about to go into a depression and started suffering from low self-esteem, wondering if anyone will want to date him or be sexual with him again. He started feeling ashamed of facing the world and just detached and started considering him as abnormal until he checked the statistics.   He told me that almost one of five people in US has herpes. Then he started feeling that he was also part of the crowd and it was nowhere his fault if he got the virus. This made me curious about how common the disease was. Not only this, the rate with which the virus is spreading, no territory can stop it from making the entire world its carrier. “Being a doctor yourself, you could have easily chosen the right thing for your disease” this was my next statement. But the answer left me even more worried. He told me that there is no cure to eliminate the virus permanently till now. As the seriousness of the disease increased my interest we decided to meet one more friend who was doing a research on sexually transmitted diseases for almost 10 years now.   Moving on towards his lab, he told some of the astonishing facts about herpes and the virus causing it.
