A Look into the Research of Dr. Ken Languin’s HSV 2 Cure

There are many products out there that share ways to treat herpes. However, one product that hit the market not too long ago, and managed to get exceptionally popular seems to be Dr. Ken Languin’s HSV 2 cure. If we are not mistaken, the product is officially known as the Herpes Eraser.

The source that we were referring to said that the product has been developed by Dr. Christine Buehler and Dr. Ken Languin, and is believed to be a HSV 2 cure, or at least to a certain extent. While we won’t go into much details about whether the product is indeed what it claims to be, we will certainly be sharing some highly useful information in this article.

This information, too, is based on some extensive research, though it may or may not be linked to Dr. Ken Languin’s HSV 2 cure. However, we believe that their product, too, does cover this information, as it’s believed to be an important component of the overall treatment method that one may need to adopt in order to get rid of herpes outbreaks.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at what are believed to be some reasonably effective ways of treating herpes.

Lysine Supplement

In one of our previous articles, we talked about the importance of including lysine-rich foods in our diet while avoiding foods that come with high quantities of arginine. It’s because while arginine helps the herpes virus reproduce and cause outbreaks conveniently easily, lysine restricts its growth and decreases both the severity and frequency of the outbreaks.

However, apart from the said diet changes, many people suffering from herpes are also finding fairly good success with lysine supplements. As lysine can really go a long way in achieving various positive changes that help deal significantly better with the herpes virus, taking lysine supplement may work really well for you.

However, one thing you would want to keep in mind while using lysine supplements is to go only with vegan products. This is due to the fact that the non-vegan, or the other lysine supplements may be coming with gelatin, which contains arginine and may hence trigger an outbreak instead of preventing it, which can obviously be very counterproductive.

Similarly, such harmful ingredients may even take a toll on the overall effectiveness of the lysine supplement. Hence, your best bet is to simply stick to vegan lysine supplements, as it would help get rid of the outbreaks for good over time.

Another important benefit of taking lysine supplement is that it strengthens your immune system. While this might not seem directly related to treating herpes, you would probably be surprised at how important it is to have a strong immune system in order to fight the herpes virus effectively.

If your immune system is not strong enough, or worse still, weak, which is generally the case while being affected by conditions such as herpes, it can get very difficult to manage it. On the other hand, a strong immune system makes it difficult for the virus to grow and cause damage to your overall health. It also ensures that the treatments you follow to fight the virus work at their best.

Oregano Oil Treatment

This is a little-known treatment that seems to be working fairly effectively for some people dealing with herpes and seeking relief from the outbreaks. While it may not usually be capable of getting rid of the outbreaks altogether on its own, it can certainly be a great add-on with other effective treatments. In fact, it alone, too, may reduce the outbreaks to a considerable extent, especially with daily use.

It actually works in quite a unique way against the herpes virus. What it does is simply attacking the herpes virus that may be hiding behind cell membranes and using them as protection. It is believed to be capable of breaking down these membranes, hence making the virus vulnerable to its further attacks.

Perhaps one of the important reasons antibiotics do not work against herpes is that the virus hides behind these cell membranes, which antibiotics probably cannot pass through. However, as we just noted, this isn’t the case with oregano oil and, hence, it can turn out to be a “natural” antibiotic for herpes.

As far as applying it is concerned, you can simply put it under your tongue or apply it to your skin. The idea here is to make sure it makes its way to your central nervous system, as well as your blood channels.

However, an important point to note here is that virgin oregano oil is usually very strong. Hence, it’s recommended to dilute it using some other natural oil, such as olive oil. However, if you’re looking to take its effectiveness to another level, you can instead use coconut oil to dilute it, as it may help do the dual task of diluting oregano oil while working against the herpes virus itself.

Vitamins for Herpes

Apparently, improving your vitamin intake, too, can be linked to increasing your resistance against the herpes virus. Here’s a look at some vitamins that may help with herpes and what they exactly do.

  • Vitamin A – It helps strengthen your immune system, while its deficiency may make it easier for the herpes virus to cause outbreaks frequently
  • Vitamin C – A particular study suggested that vitamin C may help fight the herpes virus better, and damage its ability to cause outbreaks
  • Vitamin E – This is probably especially useful for speeding up the healing after you have suffered from an outbreak
  • Vitamin D – This is another vitamin that promotes immune system health and can be very useful at fighting off infections such as herpes
  • Vitamin B12 – This group of vitamins may indirectly help with reducing outbreaks, as they help manage stress better, which tends to be one of the major factors of outbreaks

Natural sources of these vitamins (that are especially recommended for herpes):

  • Vitamin A – Leafy vegetables, fruits and vegetable oils
  • Vitamin C – Mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberries and many other fruits
  • Vitamin E – Vegetable oils and green leafy vegetables
  • Vitamin D – Dairy products and orange juice
  • Vitamin B12 – Milk and milk products

Health and Fitness Goals You Need To Avoid

Who doesn’t want to be healthy? Women, regardless of age, have dreams of becoming healthy. But of course, it all starts with a goal. Without a goal, it is impossible to determine things that you have to do. Unfortunately, there are times when our fitness goals can only make things worse for us. What are the usual fitness goals that you need to avoid?
Losing weight without considering muscle mass
Stunt growth is an important goal especially for someone who is overweight. However, women are prone to just holding back the food that they eat in order to lose weight. Losing weight without any consideration of your muscle mass can be detrimental to your overall health.

It is crucial that you also build muscle mass if you wish to cut weight. Muscle mass is important in losing weight because it can help maintain your metabolic rate. That means more fats can be lost even if you are not doing anything.
vitamin-b-871135_640Cutting so much weight in short period of time
You may have heard of people looking forward to cut a huge amount of weight in such a small amount of time. This is a bad move. It means that you are simply losing either water weight, or you are catabolizing the muscles in your body. This can also be stressful to organs of your body, as well.
Aiming the same body as celebrities
Yes, we are influenced by people who are popular. But does that mean that you need to look like them? This should never be the case. Keep in mind that celebrities might look good on their photos, but you’ll never know if it’s been edited. In addition to this, you have to consider genetics and your natural body composition.
Working out daily
Working out is a great way to achieve fitness goals. Unfortunately, there are individuals who make working out their goal. It is important to give the body time to rest and recover. Even professional athletes are given a day or two to recover. For the average Jane, you should also give your body time to recuperate. Get enough rest and eat the right food after a workout. You’ll be surprised by the progress you are going to get.
Conclusion
If you plan to become health and fit, it all starts with the right type of goal. Unfortunately, a lot of people are misinformed how to optimize their health. It can be because they are overly concerned about aesthetics, or simply uninformed of these realities.

Is Olive Leaf Extract “Almost” a Herpes?

If you’re suffering from herpes, we are sure we don’t need to tell you anything about how challenging it can be to live with it. Yes, there are those medications out there that can (hardly) offer a temporary relief, but at the cost of having to deal with harmful side effects and whatnot.

However, there actually seem to be quite a few alternative treatments out there which seem to be quite effective, perhaps surely more than the typical over-the-counter medications. More importantly, they usually don’t come with any side effects whatsoever.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at one such home remedy that may turn out to be very helpful when it comes to dealing with herpes.

olive-leaf-extractOlive Oil / Olive Leaf Extract – Almost a Cure?

Olive oil and olive leaf extract have apparently been proven to be highly effective against the herpes virus. In fact, some studies even suggest that they may help get rid of the herpes virus for good.

While we are not sure if we can really vouch for that, but we certainly do think that they can go a long way in helping you control the outbreaks and symptoms and make your condition more manageable.

Olive oil comes with high amounts of anti-oxidants, meaning that it will help restrict the growth of the herpes virus. It’s also believed to provide moisture to the skin, which can certainly be very relieving when you’re dealing with an outbreak.

Olive leaf extract, on the other hand, is believed to be even more effective. Based on some research we have done on its effectiveness with respect to dealing with herpes, it is capable of interfering with amino acid’s production in the body, including arginine, which is considered highly essential for the survival of the herpes virus in the body.

Similarly, it can probably also prevent shedding and other such things to a considerable extent that lead to the spread of the virus. Besides, it helps in making the virus “less active”, meaning less outbreaks and, hence, less trouble to deal with.

Now, though we are not sure how reliable this information is, but we have also come across a piece of information that said that it may even help repair infected cells. Now, that’s quite a saying, especially given that the herpes virus is known to live in the human body forever, perhaps except if or when the patient manages to find some little-known cure that comes with the ability to get rid of the virus for good.

However, the thing is that olive leaf extract definitely seems to be a great option if you want to control outbreaks, which is perhaps crucial when you’re going through the initial phase of the condition. Furthermore, it probably also helps prevent flare ups, which is, again, very relieving for those who experience frequent and severe outbreaks.

We read a herpes patient say that they were getting the typical burning sensation which means that an outbreak is coming. They took 6 150mg olive leaf extract and within as less as just a couple of hours the feeling started fading away and they kept improving. So there you go about the effectiveness of olive leaf extract for dealing with herpes.

Answer:  A woman can get pregnant once she goes off “the pill” is quite quickly.  It actually takes around two weeks for a woman to resume her period once she goes off the pill. Studies show a conception range from 72% to 94% in the first year after a woman stops taking her birth control pills. MYTH:  IF I GET PREGNANT ON BIRTH CONTROL PILLS IT WILL HARM MY BABY.

Pregnancy and Your Body

When a woman is pregnant, many dynamic processes take place in her body that she may or may not be aware of. Here are 12 things that expectant mothers may not realize are taking place in her body:   1.  YOUR BREASTS BECOME TENDER. One of the very first symptoms a woman experiences is very sore breasts. Changes in the levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone necessary to prepare your breasts to produce milk result in tender, sore breasts. 2.  YOUR NIPPLES PROTRUDE. Changes in these hormones can also make your nipples protrude more than usual.  In addition, they too can be incredibly tender during this period. 3.  YOUR AREOLAS (AREA AROUND THE NIPPLES) GET DARKER AND LARGER. Your areola (the dark around your nipple) can get darker and may actually increase in size. 4.  YOU MAY HAVE MORE SALIVA. Although experts do not know the absolute reason for the increase in saliva reported in early pregnancy, we do believe that hormone changes may be the culprits.  Women who have nausea with their pregnancy tend to report this sensation more frequently than women who do not experience much nausea with their pregnancy. 5.  YOU MAY EXPERIENCE MORE CONSTIPATION. An increase in the levels of the hormone progesterone. The increase in this hormone helps your uterus to relax preventing contractions before labor. The downside is that all your muscles to relax decreasing the amount that your intestines “move” resulting in constipation. 6.  YOU ARE AT INCREASED RISK TO GET HEMORRHOIDS. Hemorrhoids are veins located in and around your rectum that can become swollen during pregnancy causing pain and itching. Thankfully, these symptoms tend to resolve after pregnancy. 7.  YOU MAY FEEL MORE CONGESTED. Some women experience sinus congestion during pregnancy. The hormone estrogen can cause your mucous membranes located in your nose to swell […]
