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 […]

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. Cutting 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 […]

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 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 […]

ORAL CONTRACEPTION: Myths and Misconceptions

We wanted to start the monthly topic of “Contraception Myths” to dispel so many of the misconceptions women have about using various forms of contraception.  We hope that this short question and answer format series clears up some questions you yourself may have had and that have prevented you from using a reliable and safe form of contraception. MYTH:  COMBINED ORAL CONTRACEPTION (BIRTH CONTROL PILLS THAT HAVE BOTH ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE) AFFECT MY ABILITY TO GET PREGNANT IN THE FUTURE. 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. Answer:  Women who get pregnant while taking the pill do not have higher rates of spontaneous abortion, preterm deliveries, birth defects or pregnancy related complications than women who are not taking birth control pills. Your healthcare provider will advise you to stop taking your pill if you do become pregnant and begin your prenatal care.
