Step 1: Separate Fact From Fiction
4 Most Common Herpes Myths:
You will know when you have contracted herpes. While the condition sometimes leads to symptoms that include itchy or painful sores in the genital area (outbreaks) many people experience no outward symptoms. The truth is these problems usually disappear as soon as the condition is treated properly. While a few of us seem to be more prone to recurrent attacks and relapses of the condition, others who are afflicted with the condition may be almost asymptomatic.
A positive diagnosis will drastically impact your social life. The truth is that one must be careful and take preventive measures to avoid infecting partners. Herpes is often contagious, regardless of the presence of sores or their absence. However, with careful treatment and safe practices, the chances of transmission can be nearly eliminated.
Another common myth is that you can only get Herpes if you are promiscuous. The truth is, even one sexual partner can transmit the virus. Incidence of infection is fairly consistent throughout different groups regardless of ethnicity, economic status, or level of sexual activity.
There is no cure for herpes. The term "cure" is charged with meaning and can create a strong response from different interests. In some ways it is true that once infected your body will always carry the specific HSV antibody. This is a normal feature of the human immune response. But we carry the antibody for every viral infection (cold, flu, chicken pox, etc.) to which we have been exposed. For this reason we use the term solution. In other words, a treatment that can stop the outbreaks and rid your body of the viral pathogen is in fact a solution.
Step 2: Understand The Virus
So what is Herpes???
Herpes, both oral and genital, is not only embarrassing and painful, but left untreated it may also lead to more serious conditions later in life. Other research indicates that HSV sufferers are more likely to become infected by HPV and possibly HIV. Unfortunately, it is estimated that more than 70 percent of adults in the United States have oral herpes, and that an estimated 48 million people have genital herpes. The fact that only 20 percent of HSV2 infected people are aware of their status (due to the lack of any outward symptoms) insures that this will continue to spread until the solution is found.
The path that leads to this solution begins with some understanding of the Virus itself.
A Brief History of Herpetic Virus
The virus was first written about over 2,000 years ago, however, no one can be sure exactly how long this parasitic infection has existed in humans. The traditional medical community addressed herpes by using natural compounds that either treated the outward symptoms or tried to push the virus even deeper in the body so that outbreaks did not occur.
In the 1970's 1980's researchers discovered the virus responsible for HSV1 and HSV2. They focused their research on inhibiting this process. The result is an anti-viral approach that inhibits the virus but does not result in complete and total removal. The few that survive in a dormant state will eventually replicate and result in further outbreaks.
Many current alternative medicine practitioners have rediscovered that there are natural substances that can reduce the frequency and severity of outbreaks. This approach is based on the concept that by boosting the body's immune response the virus is kept at bay. Admittedly, this approach is preferable to the more invasive anti-virals, however, it still falls short of solving the underlying problem.
Both of these methods are problematic. The problem with treating the outward symptoms is that it does not correct the underlying problem – the herpes virus that is residing in the cells of the spinal ganglia. The problem associated with pushing the virus deeper into the body is that you will eventually have outbreaks when your immune system is weak, and you are increasing your chances of developing other more serious auto-immune disease later in life.
A new approach was developed in which, using a combination of organic compounds coupled with a targeted delivery mechanism, the virus is stimulated to reproduce. The active components permeate every cell in the body, including the cells in the spinal ganglia.
Once the virus is out of the dormant state it naturally migrates from spinal cells and into the bloodstream. Once exposed, the host immune response quickly disposes of the live virus. So, unlike the Western medical approach, Viradux-AU resolves the infection as opposed to suppressing it with the requirement that the sufferer continue to take expensive and potentially harmful pharmaceuticals.
Left untreated, the virus will not go away. The decision to take action is difficult but critical.
Viradux-AU takes a multi-faceted approach to interupting the replication of the virus that is responsible for genital HSV1 and HSV2.
Step 3: Taking Action
There are several compounds which can inhibit the viral reporduction process. If the virus cannot replicate, it will die.
