How I Cured Myself of Herpes (HSV2)...

by Heather
(U.S.A)


My boyfriend had just picked me up from the airport, and after two weeks being gone he seemed upset, almost angry at me, wanting to argue about everything that came up. I finally just asked him to take me home, and he left. I figured he had some things he was working through, so I just gave him his space. A few days later he came by my place and we spent the next two days "making up", then he was off to take care of his kids.


Two days later I started having a burning sensation in my vaginal area. I thought it was a yeast infection, I started Monistat right away but things only seemed to be getting worse. White spots. Nerve pain. And I was so swollen I couldn't even sit down. I had no idea what was going on, but something was very wrong, so I scheduled an appointment with the Women's Clinic Gynecologist.

By the time I got in to see her, I was in so much pain I was in tears. She said she hadn't seen something like this before but took some swabs and blood to run tests. Then the waiting game began. Somehow I remained calm. I had never had something like this before but figured whatever it was, my body would work through it and it would be gone.

A few days later while driving to work, I received the call. The nurse who called with the results wasn't overly friendly and just blatantly stated, "Your results came back positive for herpes. I'm sorry." I went into a state of confusion and asked her questions I can't even remember. What I do remember is that she grew more and more agitated and quickly got off the line. I turned around and drove home, then immediately called my boyfriend in frantic tears. "How could this happen? I don't understand how this happened! Did you sleep with someone else? What do I do?! How could this happen?" I felt like I kept saying the same words over and over because he seemed unable to offer any words of comfort. Then he too got off the line quickly, saying he needed to go pick up his kids and he would check on me later. I said, "I've never once asked you to put your kids aside for me, but I really need you right now. I don't know what to do, I just don't know what to do!" He hung up and I fell apart even more.

Lost. Trapped. Suddenly I felt trapped inside this infection that I had always been taught to fear. In one single moment I felt like my life was over. I called my aunt and cried frantically until I literally couldn't breathe. No words can calm the sudden psychological prison I felt I had just entered into. I felt as though if my heart didn't fall out of my chest first, I would suffocate from the inside. That's the best way I can describe how isolating a feeling it is to find this sort of news out.

I called my best friend and without hesitation she told her boss she had an emergency and drove an hour to me. By the time she got to me she was soaking wet with sweat and she just hugged me, and cried with me. She let me know that she was with me. She joked around to make me laugh, even though I always ended up crying again. She also helped me devise a plan to pack up my things and move into her home until I could figure out what I was going to do. Then she headed back home, and I was alone again... alone with my fears, alone with what was. I cried until there just weren't anymore tears. I couldn't eat and barely slept. I didn't leave my apartment. I just laid in bed for three days feeling numb, betrayed and so very violated by the man I trusted.

Finally, I picked up my phone and started Googling every phrase about herpes I could think of to gain some insight as to what I was dealing with. One thing that stopped me dead in my tracks was discovering that the herpes virus can lay dormant in a person's system for years before they ever get their first breakout. This shocked me and flipped my mind completely. What if I had gotten this from a previous relationship and I'm the one who gave it to my partner? What if he had gotten it from a previous relationship and didn't know it and now I'm making him feel awful for something he was totally unaware of? For the first time since finding out, my emotions calmed way down. I went into search mode, but everything I read made it sound like herpes was a life sentence once you had it. Blogs, medical sites, YouTube videos, everyone was just announcing their acceptance of this STD.

My mother raised us with a belief that the body has a way of healing itself if you give it what it needs. So I kept searching. Eventually, I found a place to live with wonderful roommates and low enough rent so that I could begin gathering up the herbs I needed to start this raw food diet I had been learning about. Throughout my daily research I had come across both James Destroy Disease YouTube videos along with Troy's website... Life-Saving-NaturalCures-and-nauralremedies.com. I then started to create my plan with the 5 Step Foundation of Dr. Schulze (www.herbdoc.com) in mind, which is...

1.) NUTRITION
Everyone needs to flood their body with good nutrition.

2.) ELIMINATION
Blockage is the root of all disease. Get the waste out!

3.) IMMUNE
Build a strong and powerful immune system!

4.) DETOX
Cleanse and detoxify all of your elimination organs!

5.) SPECIFICS
Focus on your body's specific needs. (Herpes Cure protocol).

"Your body has the ability to heal itself completely of any disease." - Dr. Richard Schulze.

Dr. Schulze is also one who believes in the body's healing capabilities. His book, "THERE ARE NO INCURABLE DISEASES" is a 30 day intensive cleanse and detox program for anyone who's been told by their doctor that their disease is "incurable" (yes, this includes herpes, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson's Disease, you name it!) I didn't go so far as to complete the program but it was the runner up. I mainly just focused on making the 5 steps the guiding light and molded it into what Troy and James were teaching.

I regularly purchased Dr. Schultze's Intestinal #1 Formula, and wish I would have known what his Intestinal #2 formula actually did (look him up on YouTube, he explains it) because I definately would have purchased that one too. The Intestinal #1 helps to clean out your pipes. (Blockage is the root of all disease - get the waste out!) The Intestinal #2 you start once your bowels are working really well, it binds to the debris. It has clay which sucks up fecal matter that's been stuck in there for years. Fruit pectin draws out the heavy metals. This is a huge deal, because the herpes parasite hides behind heavy metals at the base of your spine, and the point of taking the organic Mediterranean oregano oil is so it can get past the heavy metals and chip away at the lipid coating of the cells that herpes has wrapped itself within. (I may not have that totally right, but that's how I understood it.) Once you chip away at that outside coating of the cell, the oregano oil can get to the herpes virus and kill it, but this all takes time. So patience is the key!

Here's some other things I did to flush the heavy metals out...

*LL's Magnetic Clay Detox Bath: This stuff was amazing! Along with pulling out the heavy metals, it also calmed my anxiety and depression and helped me to focus better at work. I also slept better.

*Detox Foot Pads by Global Healing Center: These pads pull the heavy metals out through your feet (reflexology points) while you sleep.

Going completely RAW was something I struggled with and tried to take short cuts on. I contacted Troy about 6 months in telling him I was still getting infections and that I was pretty much raw except for "organic corn chips" and a couple other things I thought were staples. I remember him telling me "Raw foods are one of the hidden secrets to the success of this protocol - so CUT OUT THE CORN CHIPS!" Of course he didn't capitalize it like that, but I understood it like that. I wrote it on the front of the notebook I took with me everywhere, along with the plan outline and must do's of my herpes protocol.
So the bottom line, stick to raw. Preferably organic. I know it's crazy expensive. I did non-organic in the beginning and then veered into organic. I felt really ungrounded until I added a lot of avocados (homemade guacamole) and raw organic peanut butter with banana's. Troy said soft boiled eggs were ok too (mine were more medium boiled). Breakfast was ALWAYS the antioxidant shake (James makes these on his YouTube channel... James Destroy Diseases). Lunch was a salad and an antioxidant shake. Dinner was either a shake and seaweed snacks or a shake, 2 medium boiled eggs with raw or steamed hummus and seaweed snacks.


DAILY PROTOCOL ROUTINE:

#1: 3-4 drops oregano oil in water, followed with 1-2 tbsp cold pressed organic coconut oil (AM & PM) AND 1-2 drops with coconut oil rubbed on the lower spine (watch James's video).

*Tip: If I felt an infection coming on, I would increase to 6 drops of oregano oil, AM & PM, along with putting coconut oil and 1-2 drops of oregano oil on a Q-tip and applying it to the infected area. But WOW this hurt to tears so don't forget to add a good amount of coconut oil.

#2: 2 capsules Olivus olive leaf MAX (AM & PM).

#3: 5 drops of Sovereign Silver colloidal silver (up to 5 x's a day).

#4: Antioxidant Shake (breakfast, lunch, and evening). Here's what was in it...

*Pomegranate Powder (Navitas Naturals)
*Maqui Powder 1 tsp
*Camu Powder 1/4-1/2 tsp
*Acai Powder 1 tsp
*Chlorella Powder 1/2 tsp
*Matcha Green Tea 2 tsp
*Maca Powder 1 heaping tsp
*Wheat Grass Powder 1 scoop

How I Cured Myself of Herpes (HSV2) Continued...


The point is to flush your system with these nutrients. If you don't like the way it tastes, then chug it! Just get these nutrients into your system. I couldn't afford all of these at first, so I researched to see what each one did and which were specific to directly having an impact on herpes. Google and read up on Maqui, Camu Camu and Pomegranate powders, they have a direct impact against HSV2. Pomegranate powder actually prevents herpes 1 & 2 from replicating.

Add lots of cilantro to your shake with chlorella as these help your body flush out the heavy metals. Also, if you can join a gym that has a sauna, this will help alot as well. Reading through this site, I came across Dr Garry Gordon, who is all about freeing the body of heavy metals. In one of his interviews (Dr Garry Gordon Interview) he says he uses the sauna every single day. It makes a huge difference because in pulling out those toxins you feel calmer (and keeping a low stress level is super important). You can then think much clearer and you sleep way better as well.

One last thing to mention is organic grape fruit juice. After a couple of months, I started drinking it every day. Herpes HATES grapefruit juice, but the point was to draw it out once I could feel the infection coming on less and less. So draw it out, and when you get an infection - drop the whole arsenal on it and increase the olive leaf extract, oregano oil and colloidal silver! This is what I did, but doing this did make me cranky. My boss got on me a couple of times about being too sharp with customers. I became highly irritable, so just be aware of this.

#5: Morning Tea; Usually a banana with peanut butter and a "Calm" drink (by Natural Vitality). Boosts your magnesium levels to literally chill you the **** out! I took this along with doing breathing exercises. There's also a coffee replacement drink if you need something that tastes similar but has NO caffeine and NO acidity called Dandy Blend. It's an instant herbal beverage that gets your dandelion dose into you for the day. 5 drops of colloidal silver in water.

#6: Lunch; Big salmon or shrimp salad & antioxidant shake. 5 droppers of colloidal silver.

#7: Afternoon Tea; Seaweed snack & fruit. Calm drink. 5 drops of colloidal silver

#8: Dinner; Antioxidant shake. 2 medium boiled eggs. Raw hummus and seaweed.

#9: Before Bed; 3-4 drops oregano oil in water, followed with 1-2 tbsp cold pressed organic coconut oil (don't forget to put it on your lower spine too). 2 capsules Olivus olive leaf MAX. 5 drops of colloidal silver.

Tip: If you have trouble sleeping due to anxiety or stress, I took Kavinace Ultra PM by NeuroScience to help calm me down. Stress and lack of sleep will obviously take a toll on your immune system, and while you're body's going through all of this healing, don't make it harder on your system by letting the stress or lack of sleep burden your immune system any more than it needs to. Heaven knows you've been through enough already. Your body can and will heal if you give it the right environment to do what you're asking it to do.


Suppositories...

I know, right! But hear me out. Now, I'm not sure how much this actually helped, but I wanted to do everything I felt guided to do. I came across the website www.thesupermandiet.com where this guy tells the story of his deep depression due to heavy metal toxicity. Doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong and so he took matters into his own hands and what resulted was a complete night and day turnaround. He said he felt... "a very hard to describe feeling of unusual, unexplainable wellness, bliss, peacefulness, contentment, joy and unusual calmness" after detoxing. Just goes to show how heavy a role toxins play not only in our body but our brains too!
On his website he actually tells you exactly how to make your own suppositories. I figured, since that area is closer to the lower spine (where herpes is hiding) than the mouth, then maybe it could benefit by getting the virus-killing agents in through the "back door".

He explains (in Detox - Part 2): "And what is more powerful than delivering nutrients and medicines through the skin is delivering them through the inner skin of our colon. That's when they can bypass the digestive system and have a much higher chance of getting absorbed directly into the bloodstream".

It's not pleasant, but then none of this experience that I was going through was. I didn't use the suppositories more than a few times a month. Just another consideration. And speaking of absorption through the skin, I found this out about coconut oil for herpes...

"Coconut oil's lauric acid is proven to have antiviral effects. The body converts it to monolaurin, which destroys the coating around lipid-enclosed viruses. Specifically, it has been shown to disintegrate the herpes simplex virus in invitro testing." Again, I'm not sure how big a role this played, but after reading this I started slathering coconut oil all over my body every night.


Body Products...

Since we're on the subject of detoxing, you may want to consider swapping out some of your body products, at least while your body is summoning up all of it's power to get you back to full wellness. Deodorants tend to have aluminium, so throw the Wal-Mart brand and either don't use any or get aluminium-free. Your standard tube of toothpaste has fluoride which is toxic. Chemicals are also in shampoo's and body soaps. Try to really watch out for what you're exposing your body to during this time.


Negativity and People Who Pull You Down...

When I was going through struggle after struggle, the end goal that was constantly in my mind was to be free of this virus. I remember reading a blog online from people going on and on about having herpes and how there are no cures and there is no hope. One guy finally said, "Look, the people who have already been cured aren't gonna be on any of these sites because it's not their problem anymore!" That actually gave me motivation to keep digging. I felt inside like it had to be true. And I now know that it is.

The day before I started the Raw Food diet, I went out to have a big juicy burger with a friend of mine. I asked him if he believed that the body could heal itself, if it were given the right nutrients. I told him how there's been story after story of people healing their bodies of things doctors never imagined they could by going on a raw food diet. He for some reason became adamant that it was all completely bogus. Sometimes people take away any hope, but then leave you with no solution and then they're off on their merry way. I felt even more heavy hearted by the time I left, and decided that I was going to have to really be precise and intentional with who was going to be in my inner circle. No one was going to go through this for me. No one understood what I was feeling. The intense isolation is enough to make you really want to give up, but don't give up. Isolate your world to the point where you feel in control of your healing process and keep all negativity out or it will drain you of the strength and momentum you've gathered to take this head-on.

Honestly, this was not a short process. I started and stopped the raw food diet multiple times. I did a few months, not that serious about going totally raw, then tried three months fully raw but without the supplements. One day I came across a post from a guy in the comments section of one of James's videos who said he went raw but wasn't all that committed until he saw another persons post saying that they had tested negative from following the raw food protocol. He got serious about it and in six months he tested negative. I guess a lot of people heal and once they're in the clear they don't look back .. but I gained massive hope from the few people who posted in the comments that they did actually test negative. And even though I wasn't totally clear on how to fit all these random pieces of the protocol together, I just put one foot in front of the other. I contacted Troy on multiple occasions and was surprised at how genuine his responses always were. He always gave strong suggestions and was good at redirecting me if I was steering in the wrong direction.

Here's a list of his NO-NO's...

No alcohol.
No chocolate.
No refined sugars.
No processed food.
No tap water. (Reverse osmosis is good.)
No caffeine (impairs the healing process). The one exception to this is Matcha Green Tea, because the healing benefits outweigh any negatives.

How I Cured Myself of Herpes (HSV2) Part 3...


Some Things That Helped...

It helped to condense my plan into a notebook with a simplified version and then a more detailed version. I also put a calendar up on the wall with the "Start Date: XXX" and "End Date: XXX " and also "Test Date #1: XXX, Test Date #2: XXX, Test Date #3: XXX". You cross out daily the days you've completed so you can constantly track your progress - marking along the way which days you had an infection and how bad it was. This way you can accurately monitor the progress you're making.

In the evening, as I was falling asleep, I turned on Louise Hay's audio (YouTube) "40 min's everyday to change your life forever - guided meditation" where she talks you through releasing any resentment you've been holding onto for others and forgiveness and love for yourself. Sometimes we're not even aware of things we've been holding onto in our subconscious. I always felt lighter in the morning. I really believe this helped put my mind at ease and set me up for a calmer day. In the mornings I listened to Abraham Hicks ("Stop doubting, start believing" is a great one). It helped set my mind up to stay in a positive mind-set and really "feel forward" as she calls it (where you feel the result of what you want, but in the present).


The Final Results...

From start to finish of my "serious" go at this (my 3rd time was a charm!) I was on the raw food protocol for about seven months (this was fully raw along with taking all of the recommended supplements daily). I scheduled my first igG test and then waited two days for the results: Negative!! Then I waited another two weeks and did the igG test again: Negative!!

Now just to back up a little... after I had initially done the three months raw, I went and got tested and the nurse gave me my results which can back negative. I was stoked! I told my girlfriends and we celebrated and boy was I happy! I went into the office to pick up the results and as it turned out she had misread them to me (newbie). I was still positive. My heart dropped and I was shattered all over again. So, this time I was not going to get my hopes up if there was ANY margin for error with these last igG tests. I contacted Troy and asked him how I could be sure that these weren't false negative's (I had read that there can be false positive blood tests).

He's so great! Here's what he said: "The igG test is basically #2 on the accuracy test. The Western Blot is #1. It's highly unlikely that the two igG tests would both come back as false negatives... Highly unlikely! igG tests can sometimes throw back false positives but rarely false negatives (and especially not two false negatives from tests done apart from each other)".

He said the igG is a very accurate test, but if I wanted 100% certainty and peace of mind, that I could consider taking the Western blot test (the gold standard of herpes testing). It's not usually an easy test to get and it's not cheap, but this whole experience hasn't come cheap - not mentally, physically, emotionally or financially. Paying for peace of mind is not money wasted, in my book. So I called the University of Washington and requested they send me a kit, which they do at no charge. And they're all super nice and very knowledgeable! I had called the doctor's office to make sure my doc would be willing to do the test before I went in. When she called me back she said, "You tested positive a year ago, what kind of results are you expecting?" We all know, and have heard it a million times, that doctors will tell you herpes is incurable and you've gotta take meds forever and ever and blah blah blah. Well, forget everything they've ever said to you about it, because they really have NO CLUE! She filled out the paperwork and drew the blood. They had to spin it, and then I took the vial and overnighted it to the University of Washington, where it took two weeks for me to get the results. They came back negative!!!


I wish I had the perfect words to make you feel better, as you're likely also going through what I went through. I found that no one really knew what to say to me, and it wasn't their fault either. They just didn't understand... and how could they? You really have to come to the understanding that this is something you have to go through and face on your own. It's not something you were meant to have for life. The body can heal. I looked into things like Ayahuasca (which I never tried, just researched), and Ormus (white gold) which is supposedly known to heal the body of ailments doctors have no cure for. I just didn't find one that I felt a noticeable difference with. So you could also dig deeper into these, if you feel so inclined.

"Wellness is the natural state of my body" (Louise Hay). Say this like a mantra, and believe it when you say it. I'm hoping my story helps some of you. I hope it helps to lift your spirit, knowing that people are actually being cured by doing this Raw Food and supplement protocol that Troy and James have rolled out to us. They are huge blessings from God. I'm baffled at how they have so fully compiled this information and so freely laid it out to everyone without charging a dime. You just don't see that nowadays, and it's a very big deal. My heart is just so full of gratitude to them, and to God for leading me to them, along with every other piece of the puzzle that got me to the end of the tunnel.

Please hang in there.

Sending you a big hug and lots of love,

Heather.
xoxo

A really terrific story Heather, and so much detail on the specifics and what you used to cure yourself of HSV2. I'd been keeping an eye on your progress and it was really good to see you achieve the result you wanted. You worked hard and did everything you could to rid yourself of the virus so you deserve it. Congratulations!

After taking the Western blot test (which is 100% accurate), no one, not even the most hardened skeptic, can doubt your result. Your story will help and inspire lots of other herpes sufferers out there who may be thinking that there's no way out or no cure for this awful virus - so thank you for taking the time to share it with us.

Congratulations to you once again. :)

HSV-1
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

I read that HSV-1 lies dormant in the trigeminal ganglion. Should I be rubbing oregano oil on that area and not the spine? Also, is this protocol only effective when you have an outbreak or can it be done and kill the virus when it is dormant?

Feb 19, 2017

Yes it's true that HSV1 lies dormant in the trigeminal ganglion, however, there is no need to rub the oregano oil on this particular area. You still apply the oregano oil (with some coconut oil of course) to the base of the spine as it travels up from this area to the trigeminal ganglion. This is the safest and most effective way to apply the oil.

Also, this protocol destroys the virus regardless if you're having a breakout or not. If the virus is currently dormant, using the oregano oil, olive leaf extract, etc, will bring the virus out of it's dormant state (which is needed to destroy it). This will usually cause an outbreak (or multiple outbreaks) so you should be ready for this. Outbreaks aren't necessarily a bad thing when you're trying to kill the virus - remember they WILL lessen over time until eventually you get them no more.

Hope this helps.

All the best. :)

HSV1
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

Thank you for answering my previous question on a Sunday night. Why is coconut oil necessary? I have been rubbing just the oregano oil. Something else has been bugging me too. You seem to know a lot so I will ask.... back in January 2016 is when I got a lesion. The doctor gave me a bacterial cream called Fucidin and it worked overnight, clearing it up. Then again in August 2016 I had another lesion and my family doctor gave me a cream called Clindoxyl for acne. Once again it cleared it up with 48 hours. I am the one who pushed to get tested for herpes and he finally agreed so I went for the blood test (not sure which one) in November 2016. It took 9 weeks (doesn't that seem long?) to get the results, which came back positive for HSV1. My doctor was hesitant because I have been with the same partner since mid 2009 and there has been no cheating on either side. I started the oregano oil North American Herb Super Strength P73 orally and externally about a month ago and started the Olivus super strength capsules on February 1st and Lysine as well. It seems odd to me that acne creams help. Have you ever known of a test to be wrong? I'm think of getting retested.

Firstly, the coconut oil is combined with the oregano oil so it doesn't burn. The oregano oil you are using is not strong enough, which is why you are able to apply it undiluted. This is the oregano oil you should be using... ZANE HELLAS Wild Pure Greek Essential Oil of Oregano.

As far as a herpes test being wrong? It happens all the time! You must make sure you get the right test done (igG type specific) or Western blot. Have a read of this recent Q&A we did on herpes testing for a full understanding... Herpes Testing - What Works, What Doesn't, and Where to go From Here.

My advice... get retested by a reputable lab such as Labcorp if you want to know for sure.

All the best!

Oregano oil
by: Shota

Dear Troy,

You mentioned "Zane Hellas Wild Pure Greek Essential Oil of Oregano" (this is the one I purchased) - James destroy diseases mentions NEW AGE Oregano oil. Which is the one we must use? Is there any big differences between these two apart from the cost? Thank you in advance.

I read your story and I want to thank you immensely for caring enough to take the time to share your story. You are truly inspiring Heather!! I am soooo happy for you!! I do have a question? You listed the powder antioxidants in your shake but what else goes in there? Fruit or greens and what kind and how much? I watched James's video but it didn't really say, unless I watched the wrong one.
Thanks for your help, you are an inspiration and I hope to be able to overcome this obstacle too by following in your footsteps and with positive thinking.
Thanks a million.

Both oregano oils work EQUALLY as well and both have a minimum carvacrol content of 70%. The price is the only differing factor.

Best regards. :)

The antioxidant shake Heather is referring to is this one... Help Fight Disease With a Powerful Combo of Antioxidant Powders. She also lists the ingredients above under the "Daily Protocol Routine" section. The other things she says to add are cilantro & chlorella (for your heavy metal detox). You could also add some organic coconut oil, beets, garlic & kale too for an extra potent mix if you want. :)

Outbreaks
by: David

Was diagnosed with Genital Herpes at the beginning of 2015. First few outbreaks were harsh. Suffered 4 outbreaks during 2015. Started taking lysine at the beginning of 2016 (1 capsule daily), since then had only 3 relatively minor outbreaks during 2016.
This FEB started using OLE and Oregano oil as recommended here, along side with the lysine, vitamin C, Echinacea, apple cider vinegar, zinc and trying to maintain a healthy eating routine (mostly raw foods).
Have not added yet the BHT + St. Johns wort (still a little hesitant about immediate effects and long term effects - can you elaborate a bit about possible harm using these?)

I'm outbreak free since November. Have not experienced any outbreak since I started using OLE + Oregano oil - as others seem to experience. Does that mean that it's not 'working' properly on me? Any other ways in tricking the virus to come out of its hiding and meet these substances? I guess the lysine itself did a great job so far during 2016.
And conclusions from your point of view?
(Still have here and there tingling feeling down there but that's about it).
Tnx
David

Hi David. There's nothing to worry about with the BHT and St Johns wort as long as you follow the recommendations and build up the dosage slowly. Just don't consume alcohol while on the BHT (which you shouldn't be doing anyway). I recommend adding these - they work extremely well. The fact that you aren't experiencing breakouts is a good thing. It's neither here nor there if you get breakouts or not. Because you were already taking the lysine, etc, beforehand probably has a lot to do with this. If you want to bring the virus out, do what Heather did (drink grapefruit juice). This will do it. Then when it does come out hit it with everything you've got (OLE, oregano oil, etc).

You're on the right track so stick with it.

All the best!

Just OLE oregano oil and colloidal silver?
by: Anonymous

Hey Troy, so I just read this success story and I'm so happy. I did have a question though? Throughout the story she only mentions OLE, Oregano oil and colloidal silver out of all of the supplements. Are these enough to cure it like she did or did she miss out some of the stuff like the BHT and the lysine etc.. thanks!

I have 12 screws and two rods drilled into my spine, starting mid lumbar and ending mid thoracic. Will these metal implants impede on my supplement regime? I bought the foot pads Heather mentioned as well. My regimen is: 6 silver, 6 Olive Leaf, 4 BHT with 4 st John's wort, 3 lysine, 2 VIT C, vegetarian diet, steam and sauna at least 4 times a week. I also exercise a lot.

Dosage
by: Justin

Hello Troy

I'm a bit confused regarding the dosage Heather mentioned above so could you please help :-)

She mentions:
1. 3-4 drops of oregano oil (AM & PM)
2. 2 Capsules of OLE MAX (AM & PM)

Does (AM & PM) mean 2 times a day? In other words should we take 3-4 drops Oregano oil & 2 Capsules of OLE 2 (two) times a day - so a total of 4 capsules per day?

Thank you in advance.

Technically, yes, the OLE, oregano oil & colloidal silver are enough, however, we would still strongly recommend the BHT. It works extremely well and stops the outbreaks (something Heather struggled with). Heather did include a few other things to her protocol but the basic premise is still the same... detox, detox, detox! This is what destroys the virus.

All the best! :)

Wouldn't think that the metal implants you have would impede on anything to do with this protocol. In regards to exercising, just be sure not to overdo it. Exercise is only good for you up to a point. If you go too hard too often you can actually lower your immune system rather than build it up. :)

Herb Pharm is a very good brand that's been around for a long time. Tinctures are good when used in combination with the liquid/capsules - olive leaf extract tinctures used with the capsules for example. :)

Oregano oil dosage
by: Anonymous

Hi there,
Thanks so much for all the info, this has been the best thread I've found!
I've been following Heather's regime and am wanting to confirm whether the 3-4 drops of oregano oil with water (AM & PM) are diluted drops? Currently I can only just manage one drop of pure oregano oil in water as it's extremely strong.
Many thanks

Dear Troy. I was diagnosed a couple of days ago... devastated depressed and felt like life was over. Doctor gave me a prescription (I didn't get it) and said I was stuck with this for life. Before I saw this site I found another & started their protocol yesterday... has me eating real/organic food for 10 days, then 13 days of OLE, Lysine, Vitamin C and a bunch of B's for 13 days and claims this will eliminate the virus... is that possible?

Reply to "Oregano oil dosage" comment

The 3-4 drops of oregano oil should be placed in 8 oz of clean filtered water. If this is still too strong, go up to 10 oz's, but 8 should be fine. The oregano oil is strong stuff (if you have the right type, which it sounds like you do) so it must be diluted.

Here's the exact protocol for the oregano oil according to James from DestroyDiseases...

Steps on How to use the Oregano Oil:

First: You must take several drops of this oil in water, usually 6-8oz of liquid. You need to do this once or twice per day. The less liquid, the stronger the solution will taste. The less liquid, the stronger it will be. You must use at least 4oz of liquid, or, it may have more of a slight burning sensation on your lips. Applying some virgin coconut oil can relieve that sensation.

Next: You need to rub the oregano oil diluted with some virgin coconut oil on the bottom portion of the spine. Cover about 2 to 4 inches starting from the very bottom part of the spine right near the top of the butt area. Try not to over-dilute the oregano oil or it will not work. A slight tingling sensation may be felt and this means it is diluted properly! Normally, just a small amount of coconut oil will be needed with around 3 drops of oregano oil. It should never burn the skin, only tingle a slight amount. Since the virus lives in the lower part of the spine this is a very significant part of the process that should be made. This should be done once in the morning and once at night for best results. This may need to be done for many consecutive months to "ensure" best results. If an outbreak occurs, which can happen when the body is fighting back this is especially necessary to do.

Finally: You need to dilute 2 or 3 drops of the pure oregano oil with the gold label virgin coconut oil and hold this under your tongue for at least 10 minutes. Be careful to make sure you dilute this enough, so it has only a slight tingling feeling; otherwise you might temporarily burn the bottom of your mouth. This should be performed at least once per day. If an outbreak has occurred, this should be done several times per day. If that happens, just use plain coconut oil (no oregano oil for this) should fix this problem by holding the oil under your tongue for several minutes. Repeating this step by holding the coconut oil under your tongue several more times may be necessary.


Hope this helps.

All the best!

A total of 33 days to rid your body of the virus? Highly unlikely in my opinion. What they suggest is not bad (similar to what we recommend by the looks of it), I just don't believe you can detox/bring out the virus and destroy it in 30 days. Possible maybe? But not likely. Even Dr Sebi (a man I greatly respect) says it can take up to 12 months to completely eliminate the herpes virus from the human body. :)

If you read the article we recommend on raw food eating, you'll find that this is made up of eating organic natural foods ( exactly what you are saying), so yes, it can. The OLE, colloidal silver, oregano oil & BHT (with St John's Wort & coconut oil) are also strong enough to destroy the virus on their own. Detoxing & internal cleansing is the key to ridding the body of any virus or foreign pathogen. :)

All three if you want to give yourself the best chance possible. A parasite & colon cleanse are especially important.

Firstly, yes you can still eat organic chicken, lean red meat, fish, etc. Read the "Raw Food Diet: Benefits & How to Go About it" article for more information on what you need to be eating. A multi-vitamin is also a good idea, along with extra vitamin C (your should be taking at least 5000 mg's day - see #5 cure) and B vitamins. However, the protein shakes/bodybuilding supplements are no good (none of them). They contain too many additives & unnatural/man-altered ingredients, many of which you can't even pronounce (read the labels and you'll see what I mean). Sorry. The protein shakes have to go. :)

Dear Troy, the Olivus max is not available for another 10 days, however the regular one is available. Would it be better to wait? Also, I am just starting this protocol, should I have the oregano oil, colloidal silver and bht/st johns wort in a day or two?

Tribulus and Cissus Quadrangularis
by: Anonymous

I'm very glad to have found this website.
What is your take on the herbs Tribulus Terrestris and Cissus Quadrangularis?

For suppression of outbreaks, these two (each on its own) were the only supplements that actually helped me. And I have tried many. They would even allow me to drink coffee and alcohol on a regular basis. Before I found them I had outbreaks almost every month and the itchy tingling feeling was there constantly. But whenever I stop these supplements or when I switch from one to the other, I get outbreaks again.

Do you think these herbs can be combined with your protocol? Is there any incompatibility or can they replace other supplements that you suggest?

Wait for the Olivus OLE MAX. The standard ones aren't strong enough. When you get them, take two per day, one morning and one at night, for 3 weeks then increase to 4 per day (as per their website recommendation for treating viruses). Rather than waiting, you should start on the diet/eating regimen AND start taking what supplements you have straight away. Then add the OLE once you get it. Get your body detoxing now! Don't forget about the lysine, zinc and vitamin C too. These work extremely well & in synergy with the other supplements, along with helping your body detox much faster.

Hope this helps.

As long as the BHT is taken at a different time to the colloidal silver, both will still be effective.

6 months maybe? The problem is your IgG antibodies are slow to go back down (read this article for a full understanding on herpes testing), which is why 12 months is the usual time frame. This gives your antibodies enough time to peak and then retreat.

Waiting between one to two hours before taking each supplement is the minimum time frame (except for the ones that need to be taken together such as the BHT & St John's Wort of course). The BHT and colloidal silver should especially be kept well apart for effectiveness. :)

Colloidal silver
by: Anonymous

Dear Troy,

A question on the colloidal silver. I appreciate all the questions and answers here, hope you don't mind me asking. With the silver, I have read that it could turn skin silver? Also, can you explain how this protocol is able to get to the virus when it's dormant? Or is the protocol to beef up the immune system while waiting for the virus to come out to the skin? What if the virus does not come out for 6, 8 or 10 months or longer? How does the substances being taken get to the virus in the nerves?
Thanks

Mar 24, 2017

Firstly, colloidal silver will not make you turn blue! Please stop believing the BS about this. The silver particles would have to be large particles for this to happen and you would need to take a massive amount. Silver hydrosol (Sovereign Silver) is extremely small particle size and cannot turn you blue... no matter how much you take! The whole "turning blue" farce was started from this fraudulent article about the "Papa Smurf" blue man... The Blue Man Fraud. Don't buy into it.

In regards to how this protocol attacks the virus, this is a whole article in itself, but in a nutshell...

You are bringing out the virus via detoxing the body (detoxing the cells) AND also building up the immune system. So it's a 2 pronged approach. If the virus is dormant, you'll usually get a breakout (or multiple breakouts) when you begin this. That's actually a good thing. The virus can be destroyed once it's exposed. The herpes virus also attaches itself to heavy metals, which is why the detoxing process is so crucial. Getting antioxidants, nutrients and viral destroying chemicals into the cell where the virus has attached itself is crucial to destroying it. That's what the foods & supplements recommended do. They contain all of the antioxidants, nutrients and chemicals needed for this. James's article is also helpful for more information on this... DestroyDiseases.

Hello.
I read that Lysine and Olive Leaf cannot be taken together? Is this true? I'm confused because I have read that both should be taken on an empty stomach?

Olive Leaf - how long after the BHT can I take it? For the first month I take Olive Leaf 2x per day and then after this take 4x per day?
To complete the protocol the dosage should remain 4x per day or 2?

Apr 05, 2017
Reply
by: Troy

Yes the lysine & olive leaf should be taken at separate times. This can be 20 minutes to half an hour apart - that will still suffice. Basically, the more you can break up the times when you take your supplements the better. Having them all at once, for instance, wont be as effective compared to spreading them out throughout the day. Remember, your body can only absorb so much at a time! With the OLE dosage, after the first month of 2 capsules per day, you increase to 4 per day and stay on this amount for the next 11 months. As far as taking the supplements on an empty stomach, even an hour after eating will still be okay. If you can wait 2-3 hours even better. Don't over think all of this. Keep it simple. You cannot be "perfect" when it comes to taking your supplements. Just do the best that you can. They will still work!

Hope this helps.

All the best to you. :)

I saw a post on a blog which provides much hope... a girl posted she used the oregano oil and 3 months after she tested negative with the pcr test but was still positive with the antibody test. I fully understand that the antibodies could stay in the body for a lengthy time, especially without detoxing as she did not in fact do this and said she ate everything under the sun.

The colloidal silver is best taken under the tongue (more rapid absorption) but either way is still fine. With the oregano oil, you can certainly take the Zane Hellas capsules instead of the oregano liquid in water, but you will still need to do the oregano oil and coconut oil mix under the tongue (dilute 2 or 3 drops of the pure oregano oil with organic virgin coconut oil and hold this under your tongue for at least 10 minutes). The dosage for the Zane Hellas capsules is one per day with food. As far as eating bread, no wheat breads should be eaten.

Reply To "Pcr/dna Test" Comment

No the PCR and Western blot are two completely different tests. The Western blot is the gold standard of herpes testing by a country mile. However, the PCR test can still be valuable to a point, because, like you said, IgG antibodies take a long time to go down, and in actual fact, they never go down to zero (this is why a result below 100 is considered a negative result). Once an antibody has been produced and is in your system, the "remnants" of it will always be there for your body's "future reference". That's just how it is (doesn't mean the virus is still alive or active or even still in the body of course). If someone were to test negative for a PCR test AND an IgG test then this would be highly accurate in my opinion. The Western blot test is similar to an IgG test in that it should be done after the 12 months, whereas with the PCR test, you can have it done at any time (a minimum of 6 months would be the best option). Don't rely on a PCR test on it's own though. Even the CDC isn't a big fan of this test. Like I said, taken with an IgG test it can prove to be valuable, especially for your own piece of mind. If you can get the Western blot done though, go with this.

Hope this helps.

Oregano oil and spine
by: Anonymous

Troy,

I have been putting the oregano oil on my lower spine now for a few weeks. I use my finger to put on 3 drops and then some coconut oil on after, however, I am starting to get a rash. Before I was putting 3 drops on a q tip with some coconut oil but it seemed like the q tip was soaking all of the oregano oil and as much was getting on my back. I know this is a must with this protocol but if the rash gets too bad it will prevent me from being able to do this. Apply it in a different way? Apply to the left and then the right of the spine for a while? Any suggestions or just tough it out and keep putting it on the irritated skin?

Thank you for you answer about the dsmo. From my research essential oils will pass through the skin and into the body? I understand that dsmo can do this easily and trying a slow dose to start is the way to go. Have you any info or opinion if using the oregano oil solo or with dsmo could possibly do any damage to the sheathing on the nerve? I have only seen one out of many many posts on blogs of this. I, like everyone here, desperately seek a cure but of course don't want any more problems. It's sad to see so many people on the blogs suffering and as I do more research I am certain that the FDA/drug companies/AMA are not interested in cures but treatments. There's a good video on youtube with 60 minutes from 30, yes 30 years ago, about dsmo and how big pharma/FDA dismisses anything that competes with FDA drugs. Very very sad.

You can't keep putting the oil on straight if you are developing a rash. The rash will only get worse. Pre-mix the oregano oil and the coconut oil BEFORE applying.

Oatmeal is a great way to start your day, however, you do need to be careful what you buy. Firstly, it MUST be certified organic. Secondly, make sure that the oats haven't been cross contaminated, meaning, they haven't been mixed with wheat, etc, during processing (this happens a lot). So be sure to check your supply source carefully.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Monolaurin is a powerful antimicrobial agent. It's contained in rich amounts in coconut oil so you should already be getting some, however, there's nothing wrong with taking it in concentrated form either. It's not harmful to the body in any way.

Hope this helps.

Hi Troy, yes the 60 minutes episode with Mike Wallace was the one I meant....hope you watched it. Also yes my doctor is a heartless jerk and I will be swapping, even though he has been my doctor for 14 years. Maybe it's not a big deal to him but to me it is. I am in my late 40s and my dream is to get married one day soon. I did call the university of Washington and I need a requisition from "a doctor" so when I am 7 or 8 months in I will go see a holistic doctor. Hopefully he or she can help. I will worry about it then. I like all here am very depressed but I will commit to this for a year. I see so many things online... real cures that the FDA has snuffed out. It is terrible. So oats are ok? I found this trail type with oats, honey, quinoa and chia seeds, non gmo? Also, can I drink milk from a dairy farm. We have a local one where cows are fed naturally. They do not have raw milk because of bacteria but I can get it pasteurized and not homogenised. Is this something I can drink?

Firstly, make sure the oat mix you're looking at is organic. Secondly, definitely DO NOT drink pasteurized milk! This is toxic gunk that sticks to the lining of the gut. If you can't get milk straight from a cow then do not drink it. Go for organic coconut milk or almond milk instead (try and make your own).

All the best. :)

Lysine

Dear Troy, I have been looking at charts on lysine /arginine rates on foods and it seems even most fruits have more arginine. I have been taking everything except lysine. Do you think this is good or bad?

Being able to get the high amounts of lysine that you need solely from your diet is virtually impossible. You really need to be supplementing with the lysine (and vitamin C & zinc), along with avoiding the excessively high arginine foods as best you can.

Dear Troy,

The last two times I have had a bowel movement, which is every other day, and is normal for me I am getting some minor bleeding. Any thoughts? I am taking the silver, oil under the tongue and also internally once or twice per day, monolaurin, bht and many supplements. Could it be the oil or possibly the bht? I have been taking the oil a month now. Could this cause that? Been on the bht about a week and I understand this thins the blood. It has happened twice. I have had this happen before but it is usually in November when it is very dry here, just before the start of winter. Please give me some insight.

Dear Troy, I have two questions. First, can I take the bht all in one dose as I am up to the max. It is very difficult to space everything out through the day as I am upward of 25-30 pills a day? Second, before I knew I had this horrible virus I felt great. Like most Americans I ate average foods, some good some bad, coffee daily, was a social drinker, but since I have started this protocol at the end of March I have constant fatigue and my body feels like mush. Do you have any insight? I have not been sleeping well either.

General Question

Dear Troy,

Currently I'm taking Oregano oil, Colloidal Silver, OLE, Vitamin C, L-Lysine and the antioxidant shakes. I purchased Natural Bees Propolis & Turmeric Curcumin by Kay Nutrition. Can I use these two too as well or am I taking too much? Or instead should I take the BHT with St. Johns Wort? I read on the Earth Clinic web page that BHT should not be taken with colloidal silver, is that right ?

If you'll tell me to take BHT with St. John's wort can or should I take Natural Bees propolis & Turmeric curcumin? Also, the oregano oil should be taken on an empty stomach right?

Thank you in advance :)

Firstly, I'm not a doctor. Any matters pertaining to your health should be first checked out by a licensed medical doctor (I'm required by law to put this in). You should also read our disclaimer for information. Remember, these thoughts are purely my own "generalized" thoughts. If you've suffered from this problem before then it's likely caused from something other than what you've been doing for the last month or so. Never heard of these supplements causing any such problems. The most common cause of anal bleeding is hemorrhoids. I'm not sure why the dry weather would cause such a problem? Most likely this is just coincidental. Are you taking in plenty of probiotics? Good gut bacteria are crucial for a healthy colon, along with fiber. I recommend you get this problem checked out, just to be sure. Also have a read of this article... Causes of Rectal Bleeding.

Firstly, no, do not take the BHT all in one hit. The dosage must be broken up throughout the day. Unfortunately, this is how it has to be. As far as the fatigue, this is one of the unwanted side effects of Herxheimers reaction (detoxing effect). It does eventually go, however, the first month or so can be a bit rough. Once you come out it though, you'll feel better than you've felt in your life! If it's a real major issue then back off on all your dosages and then slowly start to build them back up again over a period of several weeks. Doing this helps with the effects of Herxheimers reaction. :)

Hi Justin. The curcumin extract & propolis can certainly be added to your regimen. These are both excellent supplements and contain powerful anti-viral nutrients and chemicals. They can also be taken with, and inclusive of the BHT. Doing this is definitely not too much. It's really no different to eating foods that are high in turmeric, along with eating pure honeycomb and royal jelly. Yes, the BHT and colloidal silver should be taken at separate times from each other during the day, and yes, the oregano oil is taken on an empty stomach. :)

Bringing out the virus
by: Anonymous

Troy, I see Heather talks about drawing the virus out to help kill it while there is an out break. I read in one of the comments you said the protocol will still work if it's dormant? My question is is it more potent or effective to do damage to the virus during an outbreak or is it the same if it's dormant? I myself don't know how to bring it out. For me I think it's stress and my second OB I think was from not sleeping for 3 weeks after I found out. I guess my question is that once I get past my second month of the protocol should I try to draw it out with grapefruit juice? And why does grape juice do that? If you could give me some insight I'd be grateful. I have to say I have been struggling with depression from this but I will continue with great hope. I am sure I speak for many with this terrible virus on that I feel my life is over but I want to be one of the people writing here as soon as possible that my tests came back negative.

Reply to "Bringing Out the Virus " Comment

Firstly, you must stop stressing and worrying. This is absolutely no good and is not going to help your cause. Relax, have faith and continue to live your days as you would if you were free of the virus. Easier said than done I know but this is CRUCIAL to your healing and ridding your body of this pathogen. I can't stress enough (pardon the pun) the importance of this. In regards to drawing the virus out by drinking grapefruit juice and/or orange juice (then hitting it with everything you've got as per Heather's post), this is certainly a handy strategy. How these juices actually do this I don't know. Here's what James says about this...

There has been some controversy over getting tested to see if the virus is still in your system. The medical tests for herpes currently only test for antibodies in the blood. This means that even if the virus has been eliminated or inactive, the test will more than likely still give a positive outcome when you first attempt this test. This does not mean the virus is still active in the body.
In order to test negative, you must completely detox the body. All heavy metals need to be released. Everybody has heavy metals, it can come in many forms. Lead and mercury are just some of the toxins, hence heavy metals. After pure oregano oil has been used for several months and no more outbreaks have been present, only then is the virus presumed to be inactive. Once the blood has been fully cleaned and detoxified, a negative test result should be possible!! This will take several more months after the virus has been presumed to be killed, showing no symptoms or outbreaks.
Drinking grapefruit juice or freshly squeezed orange juice is a good way to test and see if the virus is still active in the body. These fruits should be eaten or juiced several times per week while detoxing. These fruits will cause outbreaks in most cases, only until the virus has been completely killed. As time goes on, the outbreaks will become less and less aggressive and last only a few days. This is a general rule of thumb but everybody is different until the body is completely detoxed and the virus has been destroyed!


Have a read of our article on depression remedies too for some helpful hints... Best Home Remedies for Depression and get a hold of the book "The Magic" by Rhonda Byrne (author of the secret)... The Secret Scrolls. I guarantee that if you follow her program to the letter, you'll never suffer from depression again.

In regards to the BHT. Try and take the capsules in divided amounts throughout the day if you possibly can. This is important. Better to take the colloidal silver less (and in larger amounts) and take the BHT 4 times throughout the day (250 mg capsules) rather than taking the BHT in 500 mg dosages.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Dear Troy, I was able to re arrange my dosing to take the bht 4 times throughout the day around the silver. I take all the items listed plus monolaurin also. I however am still tired all the time and have some muscle/body aches. I read on one blog a person said it could be from bht? Could it be from this or just the protocol as a whole.

Firstly, you're welcome. I do what I can to help. 90 minutes between the BHT and colloidal silver dosage is perfect. And in regards to taking magnesium citrate, this is a highly absorbable and safe form of magnesium. It's not a heavy metal form, so yes definitely continue to take this. Magnesium is a crucial nutrient that's certainly lacking from our modern day diets.

Firstly, I always say that if you're really craving something badly then have it. If you want a beer then have a beer. If you want some chocolate then have some chocolate. Just go for the healthiest choices you can find. Depriving yourself can actually be worse (psychologically) than having what you're craving. In regards to pea protein, it is quite high in arginine, but the arginine to lysine ration is actually quite good. You could go for a green protein food such as this one... PureGreen Protein which has an even better lysine to arginine ratio. Now if you're still losing weight then you need to eat more! Eat 6-8 small to medium sized meals a day if you can. Like I said before, losing weight like you are is not good so eat eat eat!!

The hydrogen peroxide is also very good. Try and fit it in if you can. Follow the protocol listed in this book... The One Minute Cure.

Hope this helps.

Once the 12 months is up you can certainly relax a little. Of course you still would want to eat healthy and not go back to your old ways (if they were bad) but you can most certainly enjoy some treats every now and then - a beer or glass of wine, etc. As far as the supplements are concerned, the only ones I would recommend you continue with are the olive leaf extract, vitamin C, probiotics, and a green food such as wheat grass or chlorella. These will continue to keep you healthy and keep your immune system strong. I've been taking these supplements for over 20 years myself and have never gotten sick once in this time... not once! I highly recommend you do the same at the end of this.

Hard to say if it's from the BHT or the protocol as a whole. The only way to find out is to drop, or at very least, lower the dosage of the BHT. Try reducing it to 500 mg's a day. Also start to eat more. You shouldn't be losing weight, not unless you are overweight. A slight amount of weight loss is to be expected when you start eating a raw food diet, but don't allow yourself to lose too much. 6-8 small to medium sized meals is what you should be having. Eating more should help address your lack of energy problem too. :)

The best way to take the lysine is to have it for the first 6 months and then only again if you get another breakout(s). Because this protocol entails a strong detox, you may suffer from herxheimers reaction in the beginning. This can cause gastrointestinal upsets. Start on the supplements slowly and gradually increase the amounts over a period of several weeks to lessen the effects. Be sure to drink plenty of clean filtered water and take in lots of probiotics (good gut bacteria) as well. :)

Dear Troy, I just wanted to see if what I've been doing now is ok or if anything should be changed. I'm on week 7. Taking oregano oil under tongue and in water and on back twice per day. Using dsmo at night but am nervous. BHT with St John's Wort, olive leaf and monolaurin. As for others, I take a swig of acv twice per day. My diet I have an herbal tea with lemon and a banana in the am. Usually for lunch two eggs maybe an apple. Dinner is wild salmon/chicken with broccoli and spinach. I alternate in onions, sweet potatoes, also carrots and sauerkraut. Lots of water during the day. I always have water with wheat grass powder at dinner and other times during day. I try to mix in cilantro when I can and some avocados. All of it is organic except the sauerkraut. I do have one beer every Friday with my friend just to feel normal. Does this sound ok as I don't want to get 6 or 7 months in to find out I should have done or not done things? Is the idea to just try to keep junk out? Will the supplements do most of the detoxing or should there be more focus on my diet. Thanks.

Ozone Therapy
by: Anonymous

Dear Troy,

I am two months into this. I've actually been to a holistic doctor who is interested in helping (of course there is a cost) but I wanted to get one involved so when it comes time for testing I will have some help. My normal doctor will likely not ok any tests as he set in his ways. Your protocol seems the most honest online which I appreciate. I think "James" is helpful but there are some things that are misleading, such as the guy who had a negative test after 3 weeks using his oregano oil. From my understanding it takes several weeks for antibodies to be detectable so this is why that person got a negative test because it was very near the start? Please give me your opinion on ozone therapy if you have one. There is this guy on YouTube that promotes ozone with his "clearwood" to cure viral diseases. The treatment is super expensive, 14k here in the U.S. and 22k in Malaysia. I just wanted to know if you or anyone on here knows anything about it. As you likely know myself and everyone on here are desperate and very much want to cure ourselves and although I have faith in what you have listed, I still want to keep looking at other options. I would give up everything that I have worked so hard for decades to be free of this... but I also don't want to be scammed. Do you have any knowledge of ozone and clearwood?

You don't mention the colloidal silver, lysine and vitamin C? These are important also for detoxing and building up the immune system. Lysine and Vitamin C are especially important. 10,000 mg's of vitamin C is needed each day. In addition, don't disregard the hydrogen peroxide. This can be used permanently taken either internally or used via the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method without causing harm. Chlorella is also good to combine with wheat grass for removing heavy metals. Finally, don't forget LOTS of onions and garlic too. What you are doing otherwise is good. :)

I haven't heard from anyone who has used this ozone therapy technique to cure their herpes so I can't really comment on it. What I will say is that 14,000 U.S. dollars for this treatment is absolutely ludicrous in my opinion. Ozone therapy is essentially about "oxygenating" the body. That's what it's designed to do. You can get the same results by taking wheat grass & chlorella (to cleanse the blood and remove heavy metals) and hydrogen peroxide (which oxygenates the body). This is why we recommend the hydrogen peroxide (HP) in our protocol. What's more, it costs you peanuts and you can (and should) take it every day without suffering any harmful effects. Read our post on HP (# 10 cure) in our herpes cure article and follow the recommended protocol for using hydrogen peroxide listed in this excellent book...

Hi Troy,

Thank you thank you for answering again. I forgot to say I am taking colloidal silver 5x per day (mesosilver a true silver with 20 ppm and a .065 size). I had asked sometime ago if this was ok compared to hydrosol silver. Absolutely has been a part of my day. I am also taking the vitamin c usually 10 000 but sometimes it is 8 or so. I have not been taking much lysine though but if you suggest strongly I will. I have added chlorella tablets as well. I am proud of myself that I have not had a spec of junk food via, pizza, chocolate, Doritos, packaged food, etc, however I am still very weak all the time. When and will this ever pass? As for the ozone I agree with you, but as I mentioned and I speak for all out there, we are desperate and those who don't have this have no idea the emotional, mental and psychological effect it has on you, not to mention the physical effect. I can add in the H2O2 but can you let me/us know if it will react with any of the supplements in a negative way as I see it must be taken on an empty stomach. Also, to be clear is it 35% drops that go into 8oz of water or 3%? As from my read from the one minute cure it shows 35%. Again it means alot that you replied. I am mentally and emotionally worn and I've only done two months. Just an fyi, a holistic doctor took my blood and wants me to do more tests to check my gut, thyroid etc... turns out my thyroid is a bit low. I was online reading about how to increase it and stopped at cvs today and asked the pharmacist. He told me only medication can help and got annoyed with me when I asked again.

Can I go to seaside and get a suntan? I want to get the most out of oregano oil, so do I take the drops in the morning and afternoon under the tongue and in the evening in capsule form? Is this too much? (Oregano brand is Zane Hellas). Also, should I get James's oregano oil? Is it worth it? I don't mind spending money for a quality product? How many mg of Zinc should I take with the Vit C and L-lysine per day?

From first symptom of an outbreak I do get outbreaks in my genital area every two weeks ( usually after sex with a condom which causes skin irritation). But now the blisters are smaller than in the beginning, it's just keeps coming every two weeks. Is this normal? Will it stop? Can I smoke marijuana, sometimes?

If you're already taking the lysine and experiencing no breakouts then leave as is. With the hydrogen peroxide (HP), it doesn't interact with anything else since it's only water and oxygen. You need the 35% grade, and yes, it's mixed and taken as per what's recommend in the One Minute Cure book. In regards to everything you're taking, just be aware that if you do combine some of the supplements/foods, apart from the obvious ones that need to be kept separate, this is still okay. Remember, you still need to live and have a life!

In regards to your thyroid being low, this may explain why you're lacking energy. Get your doctor to test your iodine levels. If they're low then Lugol's liquid iodine can correct this (yes I know, another thing to take). You should have a read of this article by Dr Marcus Sircus for more info on this...

Getting a suntan is good for you since it raises your vitamin D levels, so yes, this is perfectly fine. You can also take the liquid oregano oil twice a day AND the capsules as well for an extra boost. As far as buying the New Age oregano oil? This would be a personal choice. I will say that James's oil is extremely potent! You could always try it and compare the difference. The zinc (chelated zinc) is taken at a minimum dosage of 50 mg's a day with food. Smoking cannabis is not recommend as it can induce viral replication (and unless the cannabis is 100% organic, it will contain harmful chemicals) so I recommend you don't do it. Will the blisters ever stop? Yes, eventually. The reality is every one has different reactions and suffers through different "side effects". Some people suffer no outbreaks or adverse reactions while others suffer terribly. Unfortunately, you just have to weather the storm until the sun shines.

Hope this helps you out Justin.

When it comes to taking your supplements, just try and break them up as much as you can throughout the day. There is no "right or wrong way" to take them as such. Basically, the colloidal silver is the main one that should be taken on its own at all times. And the BHT and St John's Wort MUST be taken together for absorption. The lysine, vitamin C and zinc should be taken with food for full assimilation. In regards to the vitamin C, a slow release vitamin C supplement combined with ascorbic acid is best. Remember, you need 10,000 mg's a day.

Hope this helps.

Yes, bentonite clay is an excellent supplement. In fact, this is somewhat similar to what Heather used with great success (she used magnetic clay but I prefer bentonite clay). The minerals in bentonite clay are not heavy metals, they are organic so it's perfectly safe. Bentonite clay can be used externally (in baths, etc) as well as taken orally. This article is helpful and worth a read... Edible Clay Benefits. :)

Reply to "EDTA"
by: Troy

While EDTA can be a helpful chelator (heavy metal remover), it does also remove some of the essential minerals from your body as well. I prefer a good chlorella or wheat grass supplement instead. These are excellent detoxifiers and heavy metal removers but come with no negatives. They are a much safer option in my opinion. In regards to taking normal zinc supplements, most are comprized of a cheap form of zinc (zinc gluconate) which is poorly absorbed by the body. You need chelated zinc or at the very least zinc picolinate. If you're going to take creatine make sure you drink lots of water as it causes human muscle to draw water from the rest of the body. :)

Empty stomach
by: Anonymous

Hey Troy, I'm a bit confused. You say to spread out the supplements as much as possible throughout the day but most, if not all the supplements need to be taken on an empty stomach. How is it possible to do this? Also what is the most important supplement to take first thing in the morning? Thanks

Dear Troy, a few questions... I know you said to not bother or worry about getting an IgG test for at least 6 to 8 months but I had blood work done yesterday to have several things checked and the doctor asked me if I wanted to check my IgG levels to see where my count is. I would imagine this is ok. I would do this and then check it after another 6 months or so. Is this ok? I am two months complete now. Also, when Heather was going through the protocol she was trying to induce break outs for the purpose to see if the virus was gone/dead or to try and kill off the virus at the surface. I was talking with a naturopath (of course I showed her your site) and she thought it would be best to try not to induce break outs by using 3000+mg lysine per day as you listed so that the virus "army" would not expand and make more of itself. My question is, is the virus easier to kill off some/half/majority when it's at the surface during a break out or is it here nor there? Am I over thinking and should I be worried about not getting break outs?
Thank you

Even if you only take supplements 10-15 minutes apart, this is still okay. Just do the best you can. It doesn't have to be perfect. The lysine, zinc and vitamin C should be taken with food. The best supplement to take first thing in the morning would be the olive leaf extract. :)

The BHT & St John's Wort must be taken together. The the lysine, zinc & vitamin C should also be taken at the same time if possible (with food). With all of the others, try & take them on their own if you can. Even 15 minutes apart is okay. :)

There's no point in getting your IgG antibodies checked after only 2 months. Depending on when you were infected they could still be rising not falling (this doesn't mean the virus is not being destroyed). Read this article for more information... Herpes Testing - What Works, What Doesn't, and Where to go From Here. In regards to bringing out the virus, I'm not actually a fan of this. I agree with your naturopath. Only use the oranges and grapefruit test after about 8-9 months to gauge where you're at. You are overthinking things. :)

Lysine
by: Shota

Dear Troy, I'm currently taking 3000 mg of lysine a day. In recent comments it was said that it can induce the herpes virus? So how much of it should we use per day? How much vit D iu should be taken daily? I take 10000 iu. Also, can we eat regular vanilla ice cream? :) Thank you.

Detox/Water
by: Eric

Troy, thank you for all your help and knowledge. I continue to follow the protocol and plan. I have been using detox foot pads as well but heard they are a scam and water activates the "toxic brown color" in them. Any knowledge there? Also, can we apply them to our lower spine/would that be beneficial? I am going on a guided camping trip and the only water they will provide is cheap bottled water- any suggestions how to increase the PH or get get decent water source during those 4 days? Can I put something into the bottled water? (I usually drink FIJI)

Thanks again! Eric

Lysine doesn't induce breakouts it helps to prevent them. 300 mg's a day (along with zinc & vitamin C) is perfect. 10 000 mg's of vitamin D a day is awesome and a very good dose. As for eating vanilla ice cream? No, don't eat this, it's not good. Opt for some high probiotic natural yogurt instead.

Hope this helps. :)

Hi Eric. I'm not a fan of the detox foot pads myself. Not sure if they really work that well. You're better off taking chlorella, wheatgrass, vitamin C, drinking lemon water, juicing, etc, to give your body a powerful detox. To increase the pH in your water, you can buy pH drops. Add a few drops to your drinking water for a handy pH boost. You can also add some fresh lemon to your water as well. Lemon juice makes the water alkaline once it enters the body.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Great story. Do you think this will work for EBV and CMV, which are types of herpes viruses?

May 31, 2017
Reply to "Silver" Comment
by: Troy

Yes, we did forget to mention before about not using metal spoons with the colloidal silver. This was our mistake and we sincerely apologize. You can up the colloidal silver to what you were taking at the beginning (5x per day for the next 3 months). There is no harm at all in doing this. In regards to the chlorella and cilantro, follow the recommendations for the chlorella as listed on the side of the container. Take the highest recommended amount (on an empty stomach of course). With the cilantro, have some with the chlorella and on it's own as well (in a smoothie, use it your cooking/foods, etc). You can definitely never have too much cilantro! Both of these are excellent detoxifiers and heavy metal removers. Taking your probiotic supplement with your chlorella is the best idea as the good bacteria feed off the chlorella, making it even more beneficial. I would also recommend you read the book "The Secret" as well as Rhonda's follow up books if you haven't already. The mind plays a very big role in the health and healing of the human body. Don't underestimate it. These books are also very good for helping ones emotional state too. Here's their website if you're interested...thesecret.tv. Also look into the Teachings of Abraham by Jerry and Esther Hicks (Google & YouTube). Their teachings might sound a bit "new agey", but they work unbelievably well.

Hope this helps.

All the best. :)

The monolaurin works well, which is why we recommend organic coconut oil (coconut oil contains monolaurin in its natural state). Do not take the monolaurin supplements as these aren't as effective as the oil. My good mate and coconut oil expert, Dr Bruce Fife, has this to say about it...Which is better for fighting infections, coconut oil or monolaurin? In regards to the Bio-Fibrin, not sure? Don't know of anyone who's had positive results from taking it. :)

Green stuff
by: CJ

Dear Troy, I see chlorella and cilantro are important. I have been taking chlorella in small pellets, two in the morning and 3 before I eat and I have cilantro in it's herb form. I usually eat 4-6 of the stems with leaves at dinner. Is this ok? Enough? Or do you suggest either to be taken different ways or in different forms such as powder or liquid. I read some where to rub cilantro in liquid on ankles and wrists... I am ingesting something every hour of the day, a bit overwhelming but I am hopeful it will all pay off. I also added my name so to speak as I've asked many questions since March and I felt you have been so kind to reply to most, I appreciate it. I will say again, I am hopeful like everyone this will work and one day I will be able to shake your hand and say thank you.

No not all breads are a no no. Rye, sourdough, etc are okay in small amounts (rye does contain a form of gluten). The real problem is the additives (salt, preservatives, etc) that they contain.

Reply to CJ

You're welcome CJ. With the chlorella, it depends on what strength you have as to how much you should be taking. Go with the highest recommended amount listed on the bottle. With the cilantro, you can certainly have more if you wish (in any form you like). You can never overdose on this herb or the chlorella for that matter, only underdose. Just do the best you can in regards to how much. As far as touching your face and transferring the virus to there, it can happen. Usually it's the other way around though (HSV1 being transferred to genitals) but it can happen with HSV2, although this is quite rare. Do you definitely have HSV2 and not HSV1? Your test was a TYPE SPECIFIC IgG test right? Regardless of what's happened, the virus will be going anyway. In regards to your brother eating from your fork and getting infected? The chances of this happening are virtually zero in my opinion. This would be like winning the lottery for this to happen, so stop worrying. Get those books I suggested (I can't speak highly enough about them) and look up The Teachings of Abraham, Dr Wayne Dyer (my mentor) and Louise Hay on YouTube. Heather even mentions these. In regards to there being no posts before February? Heather's story (this article) was only published back at the start of February.

Hope this all helps.

All the best! :)

White blood cells/oils

Hey Troy,
Thank you for everything. A few questions. I have always been low on white blood cells and obviously with HSV2 they are going to continue to be low. Is it still beatable with a low white blood cell count? I understand this affects my immune system but curious to see what you think. Also, I see there is a lot of canola oil/palm oil as additives in hummus, seeds and other foods. Can I consume a little canola and palm oil from time to time since its in some healthy non-GMO foods I like?

Technical Question
by: Cj

Dear Troy, long question. I like others here are putting faith, tears (lots of them and I am a man) time, money, great effort, but most of all hope into this protocol. I am a firm believer in natural cures and repairs. When I was a kid, 13 or so, I had warts on my hands. I was devastated and every day made fun of. I had them froze off and they came back again but more. I did this several times then my mom found a book and it said to put cod liver oil on them several times per day. Would you know it after 2 months the warts slowly started to vanish until they were all gone. As a kid in minor high I felt like I had my life back. Here I am a middle aged man and devastated beyond what any person who doesn't have this could understand, very depressed, but I have hope in you and your instructions, but I wanted to ask how this works? From my understanding the virus hijacks cells and puts it's dna "instruction " info so that the cell rather than replicating making new healthy cells will make millions more virus cells that our immune system cannot detect in the infected host cell (not sure why from my reading). So by getting these supplements in and heavy metals out are we killing off these infected cells? I read a lot and some say the immune system won't attack nerve cells, which I think is non sense. From what I've read the immune system will attack any cell that is sick, damaged or infected? Sorry for the long post. I am not questioning you in a negative light, I just want to understand a bit how this works as there is so much stuff online that shows I am stuck with this for life. I want to be that kid again that knew he didn't have to live with warts on his hands for life. Thank you so much

Am I on the right track
by: Dave

Hey,
First and foremost, thanx for the valuable information you share and provide here for those who really rely on a few encouraging words while suffering with this condition.

I've been following this protocol since February, and almost fully (except the colloidal silver) since the beginning of March (along with a strict detox diet).

I have not had an outbreak since last Nov. (I've been exactly 6 months free).
During most of this period of time, I've experienced a few itching and tingling sensations down there, every once in a while but I did not end up with an outbreak.
I have consumed a lot of grapefruit juice and fresh grapefruit and other foods known to 'induce' outbreaks - but nothing really happened. It actually seemed like I was on the right track.

Last week I got my first outbreak since I started this protocol, and as mentioned - the first in 6 months. Can't say I was not disappointed. It even seems like this one is harsher than the last one 6 months ago.

All effects and possible outcomes of beginning this protocol (Herxheimers Reaction, outbreaks, etc) have seemed to have somewhat of a delay on my body.

I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong?
How can one be really sure that all these supplements that are taken on a daily basis for weeks and months do have any kind of positive effect in dealing with this virus? Does this mean that my body is only now starting to fight the virus? Or maybe, the virus is actually the one who's 'fighting' this unique 'treatment'?

It has been written that outbreaks become scarce and especially of shorter length and intensity as time goes on. Once again, can't stop wondering if this is the case with me, just living my life between one outbreak to another, or is there a certain period of time when this protocol should show any stable physical (and optimistic) conditions.

Would appreciate your thoughts and comments.

Thank you
Dave

Hi Ted. This protocol will actually help to build up your white blood cell count, which is a good thing of course. Make sure you take a green food supplement such as chlorella or wheat grass as these are excellent for building up the blood and white blood cells. Plenty of probiotics too for immune health. Try and avoid canola oil and palm oil if you can (just do your best) - canola oil more so than palm oil. Canola oil goes rancid very easily. :)

Firstly, in regards to the herpes virus, how it replicates and how it gets destroyed, I recommend you search (Google, YouTube, etc) and read everything you can on Dr Sebi (Alfredo Bowman). This guy doesn't have a medical degree yet he understands more about the human body and how to cure diseases than 99.9% of doctors. He's a man I greatly admire and respect (even though he has since passed away). With the ozone therapy, if you can fit it in it would be a good idea. Ozone therapy is great for turbo-boosting the immune system. With the tingling around your mouth/nose, apply some of the 70% DMSO cream with added aloe vera (if you can get it). We've had lots of positive feedback about this cream and people say it's excellent for reducing breakouts and stopping that awful tingling sensation. In regards to taking medication for depression, etc, I simply cannot advise you on this. Sorry. Only you can make that decision.

All the best! :)

Hi Dave. Unfortunately, outbreaks can and will usually occur. Remember, Heather was still getting outbreaks up to 8 months in. It doesn't mean anything, nor does it mean you're doing anything wrong. Realistically, you've been on this for around 3-3 1/2 months, which is not long. Go with the DMSO cream (see our #10 topical remedies update) when you get an outbreak and even combine it with the oregano oil topical use on the base of the spine. People are having tremendous success with this, which is why we've now included it. If you do happen to get an outbreak, it's a good idea to hit it hard (take extra OLE, etc) to jump on it quickly. As far as knowing 100% if the supplements, diet, etc, are working? There is no way, that's the honest truth. It would be good if there was an easy way to test but there just isn't. Look up Dr Sebi on YouTube and Google also and listen to what he has to say about eradicating the herpes virus. He's the only one who speaks any sense on this.

Hope this helps you Dave.

Keep going and all the best. :)

Medication follow up

Dear Troy, thanks for replying on a weekend. I asked about depression medication meaning would such a substance cause negative effects on the supplements? I likely won't take anyway as I have never taken any such meds. Also, please correct me, I thought I read Heather was after 7 months tested negative for 2 igg tests and Western blot? (Regarding your answer to Dave about her break out 8 months in). I might be mistaken? Was she lagging around for a few months prior to the 7 months it took her to succeed? So the process for her was longer in total? I do appreciate you, your site and the info you give. Thank you. I wish you a good day.

Pregnancy

I'm currently taking lysine, zinc, eat pretty healthy and take apple cider daily but I'm still getting breakouts weekly, unless I take my medication. I'd really like to combine all the other options but my partner and I would like to start trying for a baby next month. My question is would there be any benefit to starting the program for a month even just to try and reduce my viral load? I have to come off my medication if I get pregnant, which will mean constant outbreaks and a higher risk that I will accidentally pass this on to my uninfected partner. Is there anything you could recommend?

Thank you.

Additional supplements
by: Dave

Tnx Troy, once again for your above elaborated answer. Coming across a few articles, I was wondering, how do Rhodiola Rosea Extract and Astragalus Extract supplements meet and go together (or not) with this protocol, and if so, what and when is the best way to combine them with the rest of the supplements already being taken. Is there any long term risk/damage for the liver/kidney's due to the undertake of all these supplements (besides the necessity to spread them out for best absorption and results)?

Also, I actually have not consulted my personal physician yet about this protocol (as mainstream doctors, him included, do not tend to believe in natural remedies, etc) and especially about getting tested soon. A simple IgG test is no problem, though I don't really know how well he is going to react and cooperate with my requests to be tested frequently in the next few months and, especially for a PCR test and a Western Blot as well. I do not live in the States but am a U.S. citizen and travel there pretty often. Are there any public/private clinics in the states (NY/LA areas) that run these tests for foreign in-comers (U.S. Citizen though not a resident) without a local physician's reference, who want them done, and are willing to pay for it (do you have an estimated cost?)

Tnx

The depression medication can and probably would interfere with what you're doing (I don't want to say for sure because I'm not a/your doctor and it's really not my place to comment on this), more so in my opinion because of the chemicals/chemical structure of the medication. Try the Kavinace Ultra PM by NeuroScience or Natural Calm (if you haven't already) that Heather talks about. I take Natural Calm myself and it really works. In regards to Heather, she actually had several goes at this so it was somewhere around the 7-8th month mark that she was still getting breakouts. By the time she finished (including her "stop start" attempts), it was over 12 months.

Reply to "Pregnancy" Comment
by: Troy

A month would not be long enough to do a whole lot in all honesty. However, you can still take the OLE when trying to conceive and even when pregnant. If you get pregnant then reduce the dose down to a "maintenance" dose. You could do the hydrogen peroxide treatment listed in the One Minute Cure book right now (see #10 remedy) and the DMSO cream applied topically to any sores/lesions (also listed under #10). Vitamin C and chlorella/wheat grass can also be taken safely at the recommended doses to build up your immunity and remove heavy metals. Following a raw food diet is also 100% healthy, along with consuming lots of probiotics. Although these would probably not be enough to destroy the virus, they would help to keep it under control until such a time as you could commit fully to the protocol.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you!

Rhodiola Rosea Extract and Astragalus Extract can and do fit in with what you're already doing. They don't interact with anything and can be taken at anytime or in combination with any additional supplements/herbs, etc. In regards to causing any damage to your body from taking all the supplements and following a raw food (detox diet), there is no harm whatsoever. In fact, you're going to be the healthiest you've ever been in your life when you get through with this! Every part of your body and every organ of your body will be functioning at it's peek because they'll be 100% cleaned, repaired and regenerated. Nothing in this protocol is unnatural... nothing. Consider the person who consumes pharmaceuticals, alcohol, refined/processed man made disaster foods, and so forth. This is a person who is damaging their body and their internal organs, probably irreparably. You're actually doing your body a favor Dave.

In regards to testing, I'm really not sure where you can go to be honest? There are online facilities such as Labcorp and stdcheck which are apparently very good.

Hope this helps you Dave.

1. In the one minute cure book it says to work your way up to 25 drops and stay on it for 1-3 weeks then go down to 25 drops 2x a day for up to 6 months for serious health conditions. Why are u recommending going up to 25 drops and back down to a maintenance of 3?

2. With the oregano oil on the spine, should I use coconut oil or dmso? Which do u recommend the most? And how much should be used to the 3-4 drops oregano oil?

As always thank you.

Raw food diet and weight loss
by: Anonymous

Troy, I am so worried about the raw food diet because I have a slim curvy figure, thicker lower body, but I am still small at the same time, it's been two weeks that I have almost entirely cut out pasta and rice and starchy foods and I have gotten a lot slimmer... I am worried that I will loose even more weight during the next few months as I try to rid this virus.. (hpv1). I am also very active because I am a dancer. So I get a lot of workouts in. I wanted to know what can I really eat just so I can maintain some of the weight and not become too skinny... I don't eat any meat but am planning on eating a little bit of salmon... I eat full avocados..... but it's hard to finish one whole one and two boiled eggs (breakfast), I have to force myself. Also, would it be contradicting to eat too much fat on the raw diet? Because the herpes virus also hides underneath lipids right? (Not sure) is mashed potatoes ok if I use vegan earth balance butter and Himalayan salt with some pepper and garlic? What about sweet potatoes? Is it ok to have a plate of pasta every few weeks or maybe once a month?

Jun 14, 2017
Reply to "2 Quick Questions" Comment

You can certainly stay on the 25 drops of HP twice daily for 6 months if you want, or the maintenance dose of 3 drops 3 times daily, or between 5 and 15 drops per day. There is no set amount or "right" way as such. Set your maintenance dose to how you're feeling. The hydrogen peroxide is primarily about creating alkalinity in the body. If you're taking a wheat grass or chlorella supplement (which hopefully you are) this will also produce alkalinity in the body so you can take less HP. Like I said, there is no perfect amount or way as such. With the DMSO and coconut oil, the most effective way is to use the oregano oil and DMSO combo on the base of the spine 3 days per week (Mon, Wed, Friday for instance) and the coconut oil and oregano oil for the other days. Somewhere around 1/2-1/4 teaspoon of DMSO and even less for the coconut oil is roughly what you need. :)

Losing too much weight can be a problem when following a raw food diet. Pasta every few weeks or once a month is probably okay, just keep it to a little. In regards to potatoes? No, not normal potatoes. Have sweet potatoes instead as these are a much better alternative. With fats, as long as they are good fats (omega-3, MCT's from coconut oil, etc) these are fine. You need fats and fats from coconut oil for instance will help give you energy and maintain your body weight.

Specifics

Some questions before I begin the protocol:

1. Are there any spices or dressings I can make/use to make my food taste better?

2. How can I consume enough calories on a raw food diet so as to not lose too much weight? I'm already a bit skinny.

3. To consume oregano oil, can I place a few drops in my juices/smoothies, or does it have to be with water?

4. Can I steam my vegetables lightly (e.g. carrots, zucchini, etc) and I can eat baked sweet potatoes?

5. Can I take detox baths that include hydrogen peroxide, Epsom salts and baking soda? Or just one at a time?

Jun 19, 2017
Reply to Nicole
by: Troy

Any herbs and spices can be used to add flavor to your food, they're all good. The best "dressing" to use on salads, etc, is raw, organic apple cider vinegar. Read the Dr Axe article for everything you need to know on following a raw food diet. Eat extra free range chicken, eggs and fish to keep your calories up if need be. The oregano oil must be taken in water, under the tongue and used topically for best results. Yes, it's okay to lightly steam your vegetables and yes, sweet potatoes are okay/good to eat. If you do take detox baths (which are definitely a great idea) it's better to use just one mix at a time (eg, Epsom salt). So if you use the HP one day, go with the Epsom salts the next day and so forth.

Hope this helps you Nicole.

Good luck and all the best to you! :)

Troy, so I finally received these products to begin my process of curing my HSV1. Sovereign silver, BHT and St. John's worth, OLE, oregano oil, chlorella tablets, purified water, and all of the berry antioxidant powders that James destroys diseases recommends for his herpes cure. I have been drinking the entire weekend and eating whatever I want so I can enjoy it before I start this process. But now that I have the products, I don't know where to begin... do I use the products right away or is there a protocol I should do before I start incorporating these products? Meaning, I know that certain organs need to be detoxed in order to cure diseases. So should I buy a good colon cleanse and maybe go on a juice cleanse for a few days or a week before I start using the products? I just need instructions on where to begin!

Hi, do you need 5 full droppers or just 5 drops of the colloidal silver?

Thank you for everything.

Silver and dmso
by: Cj

Dear Troy, first I wish to apologize if I have asked too many questions. I am sorry as I work alone and live alone. You can't imagine the isolation and being able to ask you things and get answers is comforting. Anyway, I just wanted to know your thoughts on applying colloidal silver to the lower back and dmso use? Thank you

I would recommend going on a detox and colon cleanse for the first week then start on the supplements. If you've had a big weekend or what I like to call a "last supper binge" (don't worry, lots of people do this) then give your body a week of "cleansing" first then get into it 100%. You'll also give your body a good "boot" by doing this. :)

You need 5 ml's per serving (placed under the tongue). How many eye droppers you need to make up this amount will depend on the eye dropper you have as they come in all different sizes. :)

Hi Cj. Oregano oil mixed with and combined with DMSO seems to work really well. Many people are reporting excellent results from using this combo on the base of the spine 3 times per week (eg, Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and the oregano oil and coconut oil combo for the remaining days. Buy the 70% DMSO cream with aloe vera if you can get it. The pre-mixed cream with the aloe vera helps to stop your skin drying out. Better to go with this rather than using the colloidal silver.

Hope this helps. :)

Where to begin
by: Stacey

I have an important question. I have HSV1 and have been learning how to reverse it with raw diet detox through James cures diseases and this blog. I'm eating greens and berries and have purchased all of the above supplements listed, along with all of the berry powders and wheat grass, Chlorella, apple cider vinegar, charcoal, Epsom salt, etc. So where do I begin before incorporating the supplements for killing the virus? Do I need to do a strict juice detox and colon cleanse? Which comes first? Basically I want to know how do I prepare my body to cleanse itself before I use the ole and oregano oil colloidal silver BHT & SJW.

Peanut Butter/Nuts

Hey Troy,
Heather indicated she felt better (internally and externally) when she added peanut butter to her raw diet. I am wondering if we can eat peanut butter in reasonable doses as peanuts have the highest arginine content of all whole foods, apparently?

Thanks!

Migraines and valtrex
by: Anonymous

I have started this detox for a couple of weeks now. I am about 110lbs and slightly muscular since I workout daily. I do not eat dairy, cut out caffeine, and have been home cooked healthy meals. I don't think it is practical for me to eat completely raw so I baught a juicer. I have been drinking a smoothie made with the juice each day, 6 drops of oregano in a capsule, 2-3 drops under the tongue with coconut oil for 10 minutes, oregano on the spine twice a day, one of the BHT with ST johns wort before breakfast, attempt 2 OLE in the morning and one at night and lysine and maca. I also have been still taking valtrex daily. Is this something I should discontinue? I've been having migraine everyday now for about 3 weeks. Am I taking too much supplements? Please help. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Questions
by: Winter

I have quite a few questions:

1. Will taking the hydrogen peroxide kill the the effects of a probiotic? I am currently taking glutamine once a day which I mix with matcha powder and my vitamins. (I see now I need to spread out my doses so will make that change). I also had real bad herxheimers! I could hardly get up or stand up straight! So I slowed down my dosages now working my way back up. I'm on week 4.)

2. Will a diet with salt negate the effects of colloidal silver? My Dr of natural medicine mentioned this. She also said 3% peroxide from the store was more stable. 85 drops a day 3 times a day. To me this seems the equivalent and another way of taking the 35% just in a lower strength with more drops.

3. Sometimes I take tramadol and ambien. Not often. For pain, and I travel a lot. It's very limited. The ambien is a few times a year and the tramadol is for menstrual pain. I hope this does not introduce heavy metals into the body.

4. I have an autoimmune disease. I am supposed to take plaquanil and methotrexate for it. I don't take the plaquanil at all. With the methotrexate, does this suppress the immune system? I have not taken it for about 4 weeks but when I stay off of it too long in the past I can't stay awake and the quality of my life goes down and it gets hard to work. I also have Epstein Barr, which a Dr I saw felt contributed to my autoimmune condition.

5. I am doing the full protocol. I started a raw foods diet a couple months before I even knew about this cure. So thankfully my detox started before the pills.

I am taking about 6 chlorella a day and 1 wheatgrass pill.
1000mg of lysine 2-3 times a day
Silver about 2/3 times a day
Oregano oil 1/2 times a day
6000mg or so of vitamin c (I was taking 10000 but it messed with my stomach. Asorbic acid tastes like bile to me so I'm sticking with the vitamin C exclusively)
Elderberry
500-1000 mg of BHT
Up to 2 pills of ole. Had to back off because of insane detox reaction. But I'm up from 1 pill a day.
50mg chelated zinc
1 spoonful of coconut oil
1 spoonful of Manuka honey
1 tablespoon of glutamine
2 table spoons of matcha tea
Peroxide 2 times a day/ working up to 3 times a day. Following protocol of increasing drops up to 25. And gonna stay on the 25 for 3 weeks before going to maintenance.
I am adding protein powder metagenics immune boasting and gut healing powder.
Selenium drops
I'm gonna start the magnesium drops but boy is it nasty!

6. Is the ole the main culprit of herxemers? I don't know so I cut everything down and working back up to max doses on everything. But do I just need to cut down on the ole?

7. I am currently 4 weeks in and having the most itching I ever had. I never had itching just the occasional breakout. I assume the protocol is working!

8. Can I take chlorella and cilanto drops for heavy metal removal? It's hard to get enough cilantro on a daily basis in my food.

Thank you for the encouragement and information!

And some suggestions for painful urination during a out break... use a water bottle and spay down there as you go so it dilutes the acid of the urine and you have no pain!

I made a mix in a bowl I keep in the fridge of
Apple cider vinegar
Coconut water
Turmeric
Cheyenne
Cinnamon
Manuka honey (be generous)
Lemon
I will add fresh ginger juice the next time around.

I found this is an easy way to get a ton of the ingredients quickly a couple times a day. I just stir it and scoop some out of the bowl and into a cup twice a day. I slowed down on this due to the herximers because I wasn't sure what was causing it. The key is to add a lot of honey and cinnamon while still adding a lot of cider. And it tastes quite good!

Lastly, thank you for the meditation suggestions. Strangely having this disease didn't get me down but lots of uncontrolable personal problems have made it impossible to stay happy. This is a god send to have all your suggestions and I can't wait to start the suggested meditation and positive thought readings, video and audios. Thank you for answering every question in this forum!

Sorry this was so long. But I have read every question here and everyone's questions have helped me refine this process!

You don't exclusively need to do a juice detox and colon cleanse before starting on the supplements. It can help, yes, but it's not mandatory. If you do decide to do a cleanse first then 7-10 days would be enough. In regards to your IgG test results, it depends on how long you've had the virus as to what your IgG antibody levels will be. You should read this article for more information on herpes testing... Herpes Testing - What Works, What Doesn't, and Where to go From Here. If you've only recently acquired the virus I would recommend waiting 6 months for an IgG retest to give your antibodies plenty of time to peak/subside.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

I don't actually recommend peanuts (neither does James), or any nuts really. I know Heather ate peanut butter, but you definitely want to avoid arginine as much as you can and get plenty of lysine instead. Most foods contain some arginine but peanuts contain lots. Unless you want to test yourself for the virus towards the end of the 12 months (along with eating oranges and grapefruits to bring out the virus) I would give peanut butter a miss. :)

Reply to "Migraines and Valtrex" Comment
by: Troy

Many people still take Valtrex when beginning on this protocol and then gradually wean themselves (reduce the dosage) slowly over a period of 3-4 months. The headaches are caused from herxheimers reaction due to your detoxing. If you've never detoxed or eaten only raw foods then usually (as a rule) you will suffer more than someone who eats/has been eating more healthily. The headaches will go over time. Drink as much water as you possibly can every day to help yourself get over this. :)

As long as you continue to keep your probiotic intake up with a good quality supplement and eating lots of probiotic rich foods the hydrogen peroxide will not hamper or affect any of this. With salt, ONLY eat Himalayan pink rock salt (crystal salt). This form of salt is extremely good for you and wont cause any ill effects in regards to the colloidal silver. You can use either the 3% grade or 35% grade HP. Both still work. Your Dr is overthinking this one a bit. In regards to your medications, sorry, we cannot comment or advise on these. You would need to talk with your health care practitioner. Yes, OLE is usually the main culprit and cause of herxheimers, however, a detox in general can still cause significant reactions. Build up the OLE to the maximum amount as soon as you feel better. The OLE is crucial. Take/eat as much cilantro and chlorella as you can - you can never have too much of these. They are both extremely powerful detoxifiers and heavy metal removers! What you are doing and the protocol you are following is perfect and right on the money. You've obviously done your homework.

All the best to you! :)

Can I kill HSV1 if it remains dormant?
by: Anonymous

Troy, Stacey again. Thank u for your reply!!
I have another question. I have never had an outbreak at all, I believe I was infected about 6-10 months ago. Will this protocol work if I never bring out the virus to get an outbreak? My goal is to get rid of this within 4 months, instead of one year. I know I sound impatient, but I don't think I can go longer than this time detoxing without truly suffering a lot. I have lived a pretty healthy lifestyle before this point (vegan, then vegetarian). I have done heavy metal detoxes in the past, I have been drinking purified water for the past half a year, so I don't think my body would take very long to heal. I have been praying extremely desperately and meditating towards my healing. I have also seen in James's YouTube channel that a lot the people who came forward about their results coming back negative took them about 4-6 months. If I don't get the virus to come out (break out with a sore) and it remains dormant, would this protocol still kill my HSV1?

by: Troy

You definitely don't need to bring the virus out to kill it. I know that this is something that Heather did but I'm not actually a fan of it. You can certainly get rid of the virus in 4 months (even quicker according to Dr Sebi). The reason we stress 12 months is this gives your body more than enough time to detox and cleanse.

Good luck and all the best to you Stacey!

H2O2
by: Cj

Dear Troy, first I want to wish you a super holiday weekend... I have one question and two comments. I've had the h202 now for a week. I have not used it yet. I am very nervous as I think anything that makes one vomit, causes nausea, etc, can't be good. Is this a must to do? Comment regarding Stacy, I'm not down playing hsv 1 but she should feel lucky. Anyone with hsv 2 would trade in a heart beat as I do not think one human on earth would reject or not want to be with someone because of it. In fact, most people don't even know cold sores are herpes. I do of course and hope she is successful in ridding herself as like all of us the emotional and mental stress is horrible - beyond words. Also, you are correct that bringing the virus out is not productive. I was able to communicate with a scientist from Duke university who explained the virus only sends one infected neuron to cause an outbreak while there is always a reserve in the nerve of about 10 thousand infected cells. If the entire virus came out it could be eradicated according to them. Of course they have been trying for decades... The outbreak at the skin replicates millions but the immune system takes care of it. With Troy's guidance and knowledge we can all have some hope and I thought adding comments here also could help, especially with some of the scams out there. I am 100 days into this and at times I want to quit... constantly taking something from 6 am until bed time, not one spec or anything I used to eat before, skinny as a pole but I will continue. Thank you

Colidal silver
by: Stacey

Thanks again for your reply, I greatly appreciate it. I feel so much better knowing I can cure this in a little less time. I started using the OLE today and the oregano oil under my tongue and lower back, on top of using the antioxidant powders and chlorella tablets and wheat grass everyday for the past week.

I want to begin using the Colloidal silver and the BHT & SJW. I read online that colloidal silver shouldn't be taken more than 14 days in a row... is this true? If so, how often should I take a break from using it?

Another question, I have been eating raw all week with juices smoothies, fruits and vegetable bowls, lentils, pumpkin seeds, etc. Today I had a homemade chilled oatmeal that's made with oats, organic soy milk and fruits. Is this ok to have? Or should I avoid oatmeal because it's technically a processed food. It's a very small amount that I eat (10 oz cup)

Once again I really appreciate your responses. I know a lot of people have so many questions all the time and a lot of them are repetitive. I appreciate that you take the time to respond to everybody.

Protein

Hey Troy,

Thanks for all the support and continuous feedback! Quick questions regarding protein; is 100% raw grass-fed whey protein a quality option? No additives, preservatives, sweeteners, emulsifiers, etc. Is hemp protein okay? Also, what is an optimal amount of protein intake that wont interfere with the protocol?
Also, I've heard collagen interferes with this process because gelatin is high in arginine?

Dear Troy, this may be helpful for all... I take a cooler every where I go - my kit as I call it. I have all the supplements in it so I don't miss a dose. I have not taken time off from work in a long time and of course the expense of doing this has hit the budget a bit. Working Sat and Sundays now to pay for everything. Anyway, if I/others wanted to take a weekend off or even a week from this would that mess things up too much? I could easily bring the supplements and get in most doses but eating organic would be impossible, I think, or should I just wait until I get through the months I have left. Sorry for the silly question but I feel like a prisoner to this virus. Thank you

Dear Troy, I have been consuming cilantro. I try to find organic but is not always possible. Is eating non organic ok and also would cilantro pills be an option as it would be easier although I really don't wish to take more pills. I don't mind the taste of cilantro at all but again it's not always available and sometimes not organic. There is also a write up on pub med about viral infections and bacteria using heavy metals to hide.

Help, I'm a rookie!
by: Anonymous

I just found out I got herpes yesterday. I was upset but not devastated as I've always believed that anything is curable, although part of me feels like I'm not excepting this at all. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or if I'm in denial. All I know is I want nothing more than to cure this and that this has to be my focus. I know this is going to be the biggest challenge in my life but I intend to give it everything I've got. I have been addicted to sugar so I know the process will most likely be painful and difficult, but not impossible. I have a couple questions. First, while I am detoxing and having outbreaks, is it ok to take my antibiotics from the doctor, or are these just going to suppress it? Are there natural fast solutions for the blisters and the burning pains during the process - I don't know how I am going to work with constant outbreaks. I'm a security guard and this first outbreak has been hell. Also, is there a book I can purchase with a day to day guide or what to take and eat?

Just want to say thank you for sharing this. I was getting worried as I was reading there was no way out of this and I didn't want to believe it. This article brought me so much hope peace and courage.

The BHT is important. Go back on the lowest dosage and slowly build up to the maximum over a period of 4-6 weeks. Make sure you have it with St John's Wort as well and a small amount of coconut oil. Smoking cannabis can "possibly" induce herpes breakouts according to a few small studies, although the jury is still out on this one. The cannabis would at least need to be organic and chemical free if you were to use it. :)

The hydrogen peroxide shouldn't make feel sick or nauseous. If you have any concerns simply go on the maintenance dose listed in the One Minute Cure book and stay on this.

As long as you take the correct type of colloidal silver there is absolutely no harm whatsoever. Here's what Sovereign Silver (the brand we recommend) have to say about taking their colloidal silver... "BE SAFE: Our tiny particle size yields greater surface area, making our 10 ppm product more effective than competing brands of much higher ppm. Taken 7 times a day for 70 years, Sovereign Silver still falls below the EPA's RfD for silver". That's how safe it is! With the oats, go for the organic raw oats. These are perfectly fine.

Hope this helps.

Grass fed whey protein or hemp protein are both perfectly fine. Don't be overly concerned by having too much protein. Protein helps to keep your body weight up, which is important when you're eating primarily raw foods. Yes, gelatin is high in arginine. Just do your best when it comes to consuming arginine. It's in most foods so eliminating it completely is virtually impossible. :)

If the cilantro isn't organic, this is still fine. Better to have non-organic cilantro than nothing at all. The pills are an excellent option too if you can get them.

Hello rookie. You are right about one thing you said, this is definitely going to be one of the biggest challenges of your life. Don't underestimate the challenge you are about to undertake. It will test you like never before. With that said, the rewards of following through and giving it 100% are enormous. There's a lot to take in here. What I recommend is you have a read of Winters question (June 28th). The protocol they list is pretty much spot on (no, sorry, we don't have a book either). The DMSO (#10 remedy) is excellent for reducing and relieving herpes outbreaks. Most people continue to use/take their medication in the beginning too. Gradually, you will need to wean yourself from it though.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and all the best to you! :)

Vitamin C

Dear Troy, keep wanting to ask... I have been taking 10k vitamin C per day. 3 in the am 3 at lunch 3 at dinner and one at bed time. I have only taken pill form not ascorbic acid powder.
is this ok? They are basically the same? To ease Stacy's mind I am about a 100 days into this taking colloidal silver (messo silver ) brand 20 parts per million 5x a day and no issues and no I have not turned blue. Only a protein silver has the chance to turn you blue or if you make your own and make mistakes. The only issue I have had after 100 days is sometimes loose bowels with the vitamin C. I will start the H2o2 end of week. My biggest issue now is depression, stress and anxiety which I am trying everything possible except medication to deal with it.

The pill form of vitamin C is okay. You do need to be mindful of vitamin C causing diarrhea in some cases. It can most certainly do this. Taking a probiotic supplement is crucial along with eating probiotic rich foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi, and so forth. Try and make your own if you can rather than buy the pre-made varieties. This handy website shows you how... Cultures for Health.

Hope this helps. :)

Coffee
by: Anonymous Me

Hi, I have had HSV2 for 4 years now. I am currently going vegan and freaked out because most foods I can eat are said to trigger outbreaks. I came across this site while searching info and I just cannot believe it. I am overjoyed for the possibility to be free of this. I have already started ordering the recommended products. My question really is about diet and if a strict raw diet is really necessary... and also as far as giving up coffee, is that for life? I'm a very big coffee drinker and the thought of giving it up makes me want to cry but I am willing to give it a shot in hopes of being free of HSV2. But to never have a cup again....Ahhhhhhhhhh. So would it be no coffee forever? I appreciate your time and response and really appreciate all the info on this site you have provided. Its like a light at the end of the tunnel.

Fillings

Dear Troy, do you think amalgam fillings in the mouth could be a problem for heavy metal content continuing? I have two I think but having them removed may be even worse with the gas the comes from it and the particles. Any thoughts? I hate to spend another 8 months on top of the 4 I have completed only to find out this was an issue. I am still sticking with this and seeing it through. It has been tough, in fact the toughest thing of my life other than finding out I had hsv.

Dear Troy,
I'm writing to ask you if eating cooked corn is ok (if it is organic)? My aunt grows it in her garden. Also, I wanted to ask if eating more fruits than vegetables on the raw diet is ok. I am overseas and find a lot of fresh natural organic fruits such as berries, watermelon, fruit smoothies, grapes, etc. I try to get my greens from oregano as seasoning and parsley with my cucumber and tomato salads, but I am unable to find kale here and things like that (I'm in Greece). I also wanted to ask how often is it ok to eat salmon? I tried reaching out to James and he has said that avoiding animal products is better, even salmon and eggs (which confused me because he has recommended them before in some videos) but maybe that was not for people with hsv. I see Heather ate shrimp or salmon as part of her diet but not sure if it was an every day thing. I just want to keep my weight on.

Processed foods
by: Anonymous

In regards to the process foods, would organic processed still break this rule? I have been experimenting with new recipes. For the most part I do not consume processed foods besides organic spaghetti sauce, organic canned tomatoes, chickpea pasta, and organic taco shells. I figured that these things should be in moderation along with making sure I get a lot of raw fruits and vegetables in. I just want to know how strict the guidelines are. A couple of "go to" substitutes for my recipes are sweet potato toast with organic eggs over easy (figured it would be more comparable to a soft boiled eggs) and cauliflower rice for rice and gravy.

Following a raw food, primarily plant based diet is crucial to the success of this protocol. Your body must detox completely and rid itself of all heavy metals. That's what a raw food diet combined with the food/supplements will do. In regards to quitting coffee for life? No you don't have to. While eliminating coffee completely for the next 12 months is vital (and switching to green tea/Matcha), you can eventually begin to drink coffee again if you so choose. I would recommend quitting coffee for good and staying with green tea though. Coffee makes the body acidic (which is not a good thing) and leaches minerals from the bones. Most coffee's are also heavily contaminated with chemicals and pesticides. A coffee here and there as a "treat" would probably still be okay (after the 12 months of course).

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

While there's certainly evidence that amalgam fillings cause a leaching of heavy metals, particularly mercury, into the body, I don't think having these is a game breaker. It's like going outside and being subjected to pollution (car fumes, etc). While these are not good, as long as your're eating/taking/consuming detoxing foods (chlorella, cilantro, etc) your body will continuously filter out and rid itself of these toxins. To me, it's the same with things such as amalgam fillings. While having them removed would certainly be the best option for your overall/long term health, leaving them in is not going to be detrimental to the success of this protocol in my opinion.

All the best to you Cj. :)

The smoking cannabis question is actually a popular one. There is some evidence that smoking cannabis can induce breakouts in herpes sufferers, yet using the RSO (Rick Simpson oil) protocol can actually help. If you did decide to use the RSO oil (see our two Rick Simpson interviews for more information on this) then the cannabis would definitely need to be completely organic and chemical/pesticide free (most aren't unfortunately). As far as continuing with the raw food diet for the rest of your life? We recommend you do this just for your overall good health. You would not need to be as "strict" though. We also recommend you still take your green food (chlorella/wheat grass), probiotics and OLE as well to keep your immune system strong and healthy. What you decide to do would be your choice at the end of the day though.

All the best to you Lilly! :)

Non GMO corn from your aunts garden is perfectly fine. I don't believe that you can ever eat too much fresh fruit so don't be concerned about this either. Salmon is definitely okay to eat, just be careful where you get it from. It's the contamination of salmon that's the problem (which is why James no longer recommends it) not the actual salmon itself. Fillets of Wild Alaskan salmon are a good option. Steer clear of farmed salmon. Eggs are also good so eat lots of them (pesticide free, of course). Don't forget to consume plenty of cilantro/coriander as well.

Am I On The Path To Being Cured?
by: Jean

Hello Troy! I have read Heather's story, all the comments, the replies, and watched James Destroys Diseases Videos. Very inspiring! As everywhere/one else says there no cure. Well, I was diagnosed with HSV2 in May 2017 with symptoms in 2016, which I thought was from my electric shaver. Please let me know if what I am doing will cure, not suppress the virus. I started at the end of June. Here is what I'm doing...
I am now a vegan & eat raw foods. Occasionally I will have organic blue, yellow, & vegetable tortilla chips, organic sweet potato chips, boom chicka boom sweet & salty popcorn and Dave's Killer Bread Powerseed with almond butter (no sugar added in butter). I eat mainly organic fruits/veggies (sometimes I'll get conventional, like lemons, limes, frozen fruits), with beans, quinoa, and some Brazil nuts from time to time. I do drink Deer Park water (low pH) as its really expensive to drink Essentia & Fiji water (high pH) the way I do deer park. Will the deer park water affect my way to being cured?
In the Morning: 4 Zella Oil of Oregano drops in 4-5oz water....antioxidant shakes with Navita powders exactly like Heather's amounts. 3 drops Zella Oil of Oregano on the spine. 2 capsules of Island Olive Leaf (as mentioned on this site for an alternative to Olivius). 1Tbsp of Coconut Oil. I was using colloidal silver but I can't afford that anymore, so I use the coconut oil.
Afternoon: 2 drops Zella Oil of Oregano in coconut oil under tongue for 10mins. 1tbps coconut oil. Antioxidant shake with navita powders.
Evening: 4 drops of Zella Oil of Oregano in 4-5oz water, 3 Zella Oil of Oregano drops on spine, antioxidant shake, 1 capsule Island Olive Leaf, & 1 tbsp coconut oil (if my stomach doesn't feel funny from the coconut oil). I don't take the BHT, St John's Wort, DMSO, etc because I can't afford it and I want to stick as close to nature as possible. With all my meals I add cilantro. Doing all of this, will I be cured? Looking forward to your reply and thank you so much!

Have I missed anything?
by: Natasha

Hi Troy. Firstly, thank you for taking the time to help all of us! I just wanted to run my schedule by you to double-check that it's OK (been on it 2 weeks now). Also this might be helpful to others, as I've researched thoroughly and combined your advice with James Destroy Diseases and also Dr Richard Schultz. This is my method :

- Olivus OLE (4 caps/ day on empty stomach)
- Oregano Oil (3x/day, in water, under tongue, on spine, as per James Destroy Diseases)
- Colloidal Silver (5mls under tongue, 5x/day, taken apart from BHT and on empty stomach)
- BHT, St John's Wort (>0.3% Hypericin), Coconut Oil, Fast Release Vitamin C (2x/day, 10 mins before food)
- Lysine, Slow Release Vitamin C, Zinc (chelated) (2x/day, after food)
> Total 10,000mg Vitamin C, Total 3000mg Lysine
- H2O2 as per One Minute Cure (3x/day)
- Astragalus, Rhodiola, Tribulus capsules
- Drink Super Powders in water (approx. 1/2 tsp Maca, Lucuma, Camu, Matcha, Pomegranate, Acai, Maqui, 3x/day)
- Drink Super Greens in water (approx. 1/2 tsp Spirulina, Chlorella, Cilantro Seed, 2x/day)
- Power shot of ACV, Manuka Honey, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Turmeric and warm water (1x/day)
- Eat only organic, raw, fruits and veg (and juices/blasts)
- Drink only Fiji water
- Use all organic personal care products and household cleaners
- Sauna (every day)
- Detox Foot Pads (every night)
- Oil Pulling (coconut oil, every day)
- Suppositories, used a few times per week (home-made with garlic, coconut oil, oregano, etc.)
- I also started by doing the 30 day "Incurables" Detox by Dr Schulze (liver, kidneys, gallbladder, intestines, including castor oil packs, enemas, skin brushing and hot/cold treatment, etc.)

I think that's about it! Just wanted reassurance, as it's a big investment moving forward and need to confirm that what I'm doing should hit the nail on the head, so to speak :) Thank you for your time Troy!

If you're on a super tight budget then this is a good "all in one" supplement for all three... Vitamin C Complex with L-Lysine, Bioflavonoids, Zinc. Be aware though that you will still need extra vitamin C so an ascorbic acid powder (which is reasonable cost) would also be a wise choice. :)

by: Troy

Hi Jean. Remember, this protocol/list/recommendations is a guide. You take/use as much of the recommendations as is financially viable for you. Yes, this is not a cheap protocol. I would strongly recommend you include the colloidal silver if you possibly can. I really does work extremely well when combined with the OLE and oregano oil. Remember, detoxing and the removing of heavy metals is the key so lots of cilantro, and chlorella if you can. In regards to the water you drink, filtered water is the best. I never recommend bottled water, you don't know what you're getting and many companies have been busted for supplying crap water... Bottled Water Scam- Dr Mercola. The fluoride free toothpaste is okay but get rid of the Old Spice! This stuff is full of chemicals such as aluminium and is an antiperspirant, which means it stops your body from releasing toxins from out under the arm pits (which is crucial). Use good old fashioned baking soda powder instead. It works a treat for body odor and is safe. I would still recommend you consider the BHT and DMSO/hydrogen peroxide as well.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Hi Natasha. What you're doing is perfect except for a couple of things. Get rid of the Fiji water and go with a good quality water filter instead. It will actually save you money in the long run over the Fiji water, which has been found to be yet another bottled water scam... What You Didn't Know About Fiji Water. Also try and eat plenty of probiotic rich foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, miso, yogurt, etc, too if you can. It's best to make your own... Cultures for Health.

Apart from these, you've definitely nailed it!

A common myth is that "all fish is acidic". No they are not. While there are some that you should avoid, others are perfectly safe and healthy to eat. Have a read of this article for more information on this subject... A Must Read Before You Eat Another Piece of Fish. Peanut butter is best avoided if you can as peanuts can (sometimes) initiate breakouts. This is not always the case though so you can always use it if you like and see if it has any negative effects on you. Steaming your vegetables is perfectly fine, just don't overcook them. :)

Reply to Cj

I don't believe there is any need to take chaparral, and you do need to be somewhat cautious of this herb (although, as long as you followed the recommended dosages you would be fine). You still need a certain amount of protein, hence why grass fed chicken and wild caught salmon should be eaten (only in small amounts of course). An IgG reading of 4.0 is not actually that high. Some people have had a reading of 12.0 and over, so yes, you can certainly get this down to below 0.9 (negative reading) in the next 8 months. The dryness from the oregano oil is likely a rash, not the virus "spreading". Use the DMSO with aloe vera to moisturize. A "treat" meal once a week is also okay and a great mental release (like I always say, you still have to live). Just don't go overboard though. :)

Thank you

Dear Troy, you don't have to reply this, it's more of a thank you. I was more at ease when you said a 4.0 was not that high. That was the end of May, which would bring me to the 6 month point. The end of November is when I am fairly sure I got this so hopefully the level did not keep climbing. I will stay away from the chaparral for now. Also, I am up to 10 drops with the h2o2 and no issues yet. I do however take it at 6 am, 1130 am and 330 pm to work around my food. If you think I should re adjust the times let me know but otherwise again I just wanted to say thank you for replying to me and others. No matter my outcome after the 8 months I have left I wanted to let you know I appreciate all the replies. Thanks and have a good weekend.

My routine
by: Stacy

Dear Troy, I'd like to post an update.

I have been on the detox for 30 days now.
My diet consists of mostly fruits like apples, a lot of watermelon, peaches, plums, grapes, a daily salad with cucumber, tomato, parsley Himalayan salt (which I just added one week ago) and coriander (also just added one week ago). I eat cooked lentils (soup) and drink freshly squeezed orange juice, carrot juice, pomegranate juice, and mix lemon with orange as well. Also, when I eat out I eat cooked mushrooms with no salt or salad with no oil or salt. I have my antioxidant shake once a day with broken cell wall chlorella tablets and wheatgrass powder. I also put hemp seeds and chia seeds in a cup of water and drink it once a day. I take zinc & lysine supplements every day with fruit and snack on pumpkin seeds or goji berries. I have not experienced any negative effects other than a lot of weight loss (I was thick now I am skinny/petite, lost a lot of weight in my lower body and arms and feel thinner). My skin has broken out but I usually do have minor break outs (not herpes; pimples). I have never experienced a herpes break out but I tested positive for hsv1. My bowel movements are insane at the moment (4-5 times a day some times). These last few days I have been fatigued, hungry, no matter how much fruit I try to eat since that is all I can eat mostly.

As far as the protocol I am taking 2 OLE in morning and at night along with the oregano oil on my spine, in water, and under the tongue with coconut oil for 10 mins.

I was using colloidal silver the first two weeks 5x a day but I left it back in the US (I'm overseas and can not find it here). I will continue to use it when I get back in 3 weeks.

Is there anything I am missing or why do I feel fatigued/malnourished? I just desperately wish I could eat the food my family is eating daily while we are on this vacation. It has been emotionally and physically draining. If you have any advice, please help.

I contacted James and asked him if the antioxidant shakes should be taken more than once a day and he told me once a day should be fine.

Type 2 permanent herpes cure
by: Anonymous

I am curious to know if any of this is even real? Its hard to know what to believe on the internet these days. Like others, I contracted type 2 herpes from an EX girlfriend. I used to get several outbreaks a year. I never got much of the symptoms - the flue type symptoms usually but no itching at all except maybe a little when healing. I'd just see the ugly blisters and they would go away in 3 to 7 days. It has been a long time since I have had an outbreak. Honestly, I can't remember my last outbreak, but even though I haven't had a visible outbreak I worry I still have the virus and can give it to other women. I want to kill this thing for good and really want to now if there is any truth to this at all?

You're very welcome Cj. The times you are taking the h2o2 are perfect in my opinion. They are spaced out nicely. You're doing extremely well and have passed the worst of it (detoxing phase), so be sure to keep that at the forefront of your mind. You're on the downhill slide.

No outbreaks while detoxing?
by: Steve

I've been on the detox since May 5. This was after having an outbreak on April 16. I took the IgG test on June 13 and was positive and high (7.00). However, I have not had any outbreaks while on the detox and taking the oil of oregano. Is it possible to kill the virus without having outbreaks, or is having outbreaks part of the cure? And when should I take the test again?

Aug 02, 2017
Reply to Stacy
by: Troy

What you are doing is good Stacy. If you could include the colloidal silver again and start on the BHT that would definitely be handy. I also recommend adding wild caught salmon to your diet for protein (I know James doesn't agree with this but I believe you need enough protein so you don't lose an excessive amount of weight). Yes the diet/eating is tough, no doubt about it - particularly when you're on holidays or during the festive season. You have to keep your mind focused on why you're doing it and the end result. Reading positive books is extremely important in my view. Look into Louise Hay and Dr Wayne Dyer. Also read "How the Secret Changed My Life"... The Secret - Official Website. It's a "must read" in my opinion.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Reply to Steve
by: Troy

You do not need to be having/getting outbreaks for the virus to be destroyed. I would caution you in thinking that you may not get any more breakouts in the future though. This can, and is usually the case, and can occur even up to 8 months into the protocol. Every persons body reacts differently to a detox. Some people experience mild symptoms/side effects while others experience horrendous side effects/reactions. A re-test is recommended after a full 12 months of the protocol. Sometimes it's even better to wait a little longer if your count is high or you've only recently been infected. This gives your IgG antibodies enough time to go back down as they are very slow to retract... Herpes Testing - What Works, What Doesn't, and Where to go From Here.

Hope this helps.

You are definitely right about one thing, the internet is littered with scams and fraudulent activity, so it is hard to know what is genuine and what is bogus. I'm not here to try and convince you of the authenticity of this protocol, you have to/must make up your own mind. I always say to people though, if the information you read is given freely and comes at no cost (no money required upfront for books, downloads, etc) then at least you have the option of considering it first before outlaying any of your hard earn't money. Nothing about the protocol we list is hidden. Every ounce of information is given in full and without cost. :)

Important Questions. Please help!
by: Nicole

After doing some research, I’ve found some other supplements that are supposed to boost your immune system and/or be antivirals. Are the added supplements okay? Do I have to worry about any combination of these supplements with the ones you’ve recommended? Are there any specific brands you recommend, or added ingredients I should be weary of? I don't want to take TOO much and damage my body, but I want to give myself the BEST chance of beating HSV.
-ginger
-omega three fatty acids
-flax seeds and chia seeds
-garlic extract
-astralagus supreme
-calendula (Dr. Axe says this can relax muscles
during menstruation)
-capsaicin
-astragalus
-echinacea
-cat’s claw
-Vitamin A and D
-pomegranate Powder
-Magnesium Citrate
-Vitamin E (taken orally and used topically)

What are your thoughts on Diatomaceous Earth (food grade)?

Is it okay if I apply the oregano oil and coconut oil on my back and then place a bandage over it to mask the strong scent? I would leave the bandage on until I re-apply in the evening.

Is midol okay or will the caffeine inhibit the benefits of this protocol? What are some other natural ways to treat menstrual discomfort (abdominal cramps, lower back pain, etc.)?
Is my use of regular store-bought deodorant, toothpaste, etc., really detrimental? I live in South Texas where we are averaging 106 degrees on a GOOD day.

I love infused water (i.e. cucumber and lemon water, etc.). Can I take the oregano oil in this or does it have to be plain Jane water?

I understand that tomatoes should be eaten rarely. Is this true?

As far as the diet goes, I can’t afford anything too extravagant. Are eggs, yogurt, shrimp and fish from my local Sprouts store, and fruits and veggies from Wal-Mart okay? I know coconut water is good for me, I like the brands Zico and Goya; are these okay?

Can I make salad dressings using apple cider vinegar, olive oil, spices, sesame seed oil, honey, teriyaki sauce, etc?

Can I add vanilla extract to my juices/smoothies? Or vanilla beans?

I read that peppermint tea and lemon balm tea are good for inhibiting the herpes virus. Can I drink these? Can I throw a peppermint tea bag into my iced-infused water?

Aug 03, 2017
Reply to Nicole
by: Troy

Hi Nicole. Firstly, remember that this protocol is a guide. To get rid of the virus you must detox the body of all chemicals and heavy metals and significantly boost the immune system. That's what a raw food diet and supplements such as the OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver, BHT, and so forth will do and help with. Everything you have mentioned including and adding to your protocol is perfectly okay. None will hurt (and none will damage your body, on the contrary they will make it healthier and much stronger). The Diatomaceous Earth is particularly good too. Placing a bandage over the oregano oil/coconut oil is fine also - just make sure it doesn't soak into the bandage or the benefits will be lessened. Tomatoes are high in lycopene antioxidants so you should eat these (yes, they are acidic but will not harm/affect your pH level that much). Taking the oregano oil in infused water is okay too. Try and use good old fashioned baking soda as a deodorant, teeth whitener, etc, instead of store bought items. It works a treat. The caffeine could be a problem in all honesty. These natural remedies may help you... Home Remedies for Menstrual Cramps. Anything natural (herbs, spices, etc) can be added to salads/used as dressings. Vanilla beans are better to use than vanilla extract. Peppermint tea and lemon balm would also be good inclusions.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Hi Troy. It has been a while since I checked this website and these blogs. I'm quite surprised to know that no one else has been cured till now apart from Heather. This protocol has been out for quite a while and from what I can see many people are following it. I'm in no way doubting this at all since I believe in it 100% and I know you are genuine, but I would like to know why no one else has been cured yet? Did Heather follow a different protocol perhaps? Thank you for always answering my questions.

by: Cj

Hi Troy, again thanks for replying... you are right, the detoxing side affects are gone. I am up to 16 drops of h2o2, not problems yet (crossing fingers). I will just keep taking the supplements and eating the foods suggested with my one beer a week and my dinner out which is usually fish or chicken with veggies anyway. I have not had a pizza, pasta or any junk. I do feel pretty good other than the fact I've lost 25lbs. Still exercise with weights in my basement as I have since high school but I can't do the amounts I was doing before... hopefully next year I can. I will read the questions others post to stay up to date on anything. Shouldn't have a question for a bit. I was bummed seeing that guy had a 7.0 igg reading. I am hoping that mine from back in late May/early June of 4.0 was peaking but I don't know as I have not tested again. As I said, I am fairly sure I have had this since the end of November and I'm positive that was the first out break. Thanks again... until the next question.

Importance of filtered water
by: Sky

It's only been a week since I've found out my partner has HSV2. Finally got him to make an appointment to get checked out; came back positive. I haven't been tested but went through all the symptoms, lucky me. We've only been together three months so I've obviously recently been infected, and it was absolutely miserable. Within days I started the protocol (he's even joining in). I've started everything, literally everything; what a pretty penny that was. Well, I started everything besides one thing; filtered water. I never drink tap water, but still purchase gallons of Gerber Water. No one ever recommends a decently priced filter and what to look for when purchasing. Any suggestions would be great. My Moms getting a Kangen 8 Water ionizer and is very happy to bring water over, but I really want something reliable in my own home that wont cost me a few grand. Again, thanks for the help.

BHT & others.
by: Shota

Dear Troy,

Again thank you so much for everything, I've some questions please. I'm taking all the supplements including BHT+St.John's Wort.

1. Sometimes we have weddings or some essential parties once a month, so can I drink home made red and white wine - an organic one as I take BHT 4 times a day? I know that we shouldn't drink alcohol but how dangerous is it to drink abut 1-2 liters of wine a month with the BHT. Should I stop taking BHT before I drink, if so how many days before?

2. The antioxidant shake from James - should we take before we eat or after?

3. I used DMSO when I felt an outbreak was coming and no blister appeared, but then my homeopath doctor told me to let it happen because it comes out from the body and you must not block it otherwise it goes back. So it should come out and do the phases and heal itself. What do you think about this ?

4. Can we drink our supplements with water diluted with hydrogen peroxide?

Thank you very much in advance, and wish you all the best. :)

5 months in
by: Jay

I was diagnosed in January 2015. I never had an outbreak in my life. I was just having bad flu like symptoms. I was devastated when I got my results. I found out about James Destroy Disease in March of 2015 but wasn't in a place to attempt what he was teaching. Finally I started the raw diet with shakes and the oregano oil in March of 2017. When I tested in November 2016 before starting my bloodwork came back hsv1 12.5 and hsv2 7.6. When I tested again in July of 2017 my levels were hsv1 1.5 and hsv2 3.4. I'm currently on month 5 of the detox and I'm feeling pretty tired... family deaths, back and hip surgery's, pending work, school and family drama has taken its toll. But I'm gonna keep going until I get that negative result.

No, no-one else has come forward to say they have been cured. The unfortunate reality is only about 2% of people who start on this will stick to it to-the-letter and see it through. If you follow James at Destroy Diseases on YouTube you'll see that this is the case with his protocol also. Most people commenting and posting here have not completed the whole 12 months. We said we would always be truthful in posting REAL success stories, not made up ones or ones from people using an "anonymous" name (which many so-called "herpes cure" articles/protocols post).

Hi Rick. Mate, I'm not going to get into an argument with you over the authenticity of Heather's story. If you think I sat down and wrote out an in-depth story like this then you're delusional. In truth, Heather didn't even want to put her name to her story in the beginning, I had to convince her to do so. I actually wanted her to put her last name and provide the copy of her Western Blot test results that she sent me for everyone to see but she was dead against this. She, like every other herpes sufferer, was afraid of the backlash and the stigma that's attached to this STD and was afraid of being judged. Her parents didn't even know (and probably still don't know) that she even had the herpes virus. As far as the affiliate links? Yes we may receive a commission on some purchases, but we've made this perfectly clear and open to everyone in this link, which we ask everyone to read before posting a comment...

Emotional
by: Anonymous

I contracted HVS2 in June 2017. My emotions are up and down about it. I hate the fact everyone says "it will be okay" when they're not going through it. Every time I feel anything "down there" I think its an outbreak so I hurry up and put oregano oil on it. Having outbreaks is normal during this process right? Even though I've only had one so far. Anyway, I've been taking olive leaf, oregano oil and colloidal silver. I recently just got the BHT. For food I usually eat shrimp salads, tuna with spinach, baked fish, yogurt with blueberries, bananas, raspberries and strawberries. I drink detox tea with organic honey because I can't really afford the other stuff. I was drinking kale, kiwi and cilantro smoothies until my blender broke. Also, I eat "Willy's Mexicana Grill" a lot. I get a veggie plate with brown rice, beans, lettuce, olives, guacamole and cilantro. Sweet potatoes are my sides majority of the time. I still eat chicken from time to time and organic veggie pizza. I just want to know if I'm doing okay so far. If you could reply it would be appreciated.

Yes, it is still common to get breakouts and you should brace yourself for more as this can be a regular occurrence, particularly in the beginning. Try and add a green food such as chlorella to your regimen and if you can get back on your smoothies that would also be highly beneficial. As far as eating food from "Willy's Mexicana Grill", I don't know enough about their food quality to really comment on this. Remember though, food is always best when it's sourced yourself and made yourself rather than bought from a restaurant. The H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) treatment is also a worthy addition and is very cheap. Have a read of the One Minute Cure book (see the link in our article) and follow the protocol recommended.

Hope this helps.

Alcohol consumption should definitely be kept to a minimum when on the BHT. You also don't want to stop taking the BHT as you will lose the benefits. A drink here and there is okay though. James's detox drink is best taken on an empty stomach, so before/in between meals. What your homeopath is saying does have some truth to it, however, with the DMSO all your doing is lending a helping hand to your body to help speed up the healing of your sores/lesions. Remember, the virus is destroyed from the inside. The HP is best taken on its own if you can.

Hope this helps.

In fact, because this protocol boosts your immune system so much, it will actually help with your MS/symptoms. You can read more about preventing and treating MS in this article... A Powerful MS Cure Every Sufferer Needs to Know About. Corn chips, even if they are non GMO are best avoided or kept to a minimum. Fresh natural foods always trump processed foods. The DMSO, along with the H2O2, is extremely effective so yes, try and add these if you can as well. Don't forget that detoxing is the key, so lots of detoxing foods (cilantro, etc) along with green foods such as chlorella and wheat grass.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Reply to "Acyclovir" Comment
by: Troy

Many people still take the Acyclovir in the beginning as insurance or because they're basically too afraid to drop it. At some point though this medication does need to be dropped as it's not natural and the ingredients can interfere with the detoxing process. I cannot advise you on what to do though. This must be your decision.

Best regards. :)

Hi Troy, thanks for the quick reply. I appreciate it. I have hypothyroidism and take levothyroxine. Does any of the above said supplements for herpes interfere with this medication? Thanks.

Jay/Heather
by: Cj

Dear Troy, I wanted to wait a while to ask or comment. Hope Jay reads this as I am also 5 months in... this protocol is very hard mentally and physically and sometimes I also want to quit but I will not, I will finish. It is some what torture, always taking something from 6 am until bed time so there is never a break and it is always on my mind, never mind the cost for supplements and organic food and the diet. That brings me to the Heather scam remark. It hurts me and of course it doesn't help to think Troy would scam us. I was scammed the first few days I found out I had this so I have been cautious, but have to take a chance. There are many scams out there and if this protocol was a scam it would be inhumane, having people suffer even more than having the disease itself. I myself am spending hundreds a month on supplements and food and have spent thousands in 5 months. It is horrible to think all the time, money, effort, mental and physical stress and pain would be for a scam, but I do not think Troy or this protocol is. He would have to be a sick human being. As I stated before, if this works and come March when I am complete I will gladly post my results and my first and last name. I hope I am able to do this. Although I don't like to see negative comments like that, I appreciate they are posted.

As I've said a few times before, a scam is where you pay out your hard earned money up front for something (book, course, etc) and receive nothing of value in return. What we list in our article is available completely free of charge. Everyone has the option of perusing it first before deciding if they'll follow it. Nothing is hidden here... nothing. I've seen one "herpes cure" protocol that costs over $700 just for the so-called "secrets". The supplements and diet costs are on top of this.
It would have been very easy for me to simply delete Rick's comment (which he expected me to do) and ban him, but I didn't. A little scepticism is not necessarily a bad thing. This is all I will be saying about Rick's comment.

Hi Troy, I just wanted to be clear, I do not think for a moment you are a scammer or I would not have started this protocol. I did get scammed for 70 for that ridiculous hsv eraser that claims a 21 day cure. Ricks comment was a bit deflating especially as I have put so much effort into this... in fact the most effort of anything in my life. As I have said before, I will see this to the end no matter what and as always I appreciate your replies. The fact that you do reply is incredible as I cannot get James from YouTube to reply and others want to charge to ask questions. Thank you again and I hope you did not misunderstand my comment. I absolutely never thought this was a scam. I just don't need others putting doubt in my head but I appreciate that you posted Ricks comment anyway. Have a good weekend.

I can feel the results
by: Anonymous

I have been only doing this protocol for about 3 months. It is extremely hard and does require a lot of dedication. I would consider myself to be a healthy individual before I started this journey so I might be seeing results faster than others. I can feel the virus changing in my body. I've also been able to completely get off of valtrex, which I was taking daily for suppressive therapy. I was also able to stop another medication I was taking for anxiety. This alone is a win for me, being able to change to natural remedies and get off those medications. Those who do not believe simply do not want to do the work that this protocol entails in my opinion. It might take me longer than 6 months to completely rid my body of the virus but I honestly feel it is working. The virus does not feel as strong as it use to be. Good luck to everyone who is doing this because it is not easy by any means!

Hi Troy,
I have been reading Heather's story, which is very inspiring. However, I see that she did not take zinc, lysine, vit c and bht supplements during her regimen. How essential is it to take these?

The vitamin C, zinc, lysine and BHT are all powerful detoxifiers. They also boost the immune system significantly. Detoxifying the body and increasing your immunity are the crux to ridding yourself of the herpes virus. While it's true that Heather didn't use these, she used other/similar supplements instead. I would recommend you include these but the choice is always yours. The LLC magnetic clay baths should be taken 1-2 times a week for best results.

Hope this helps.

Trying Like Everyone Else
by: Chelsea

I was diagnosed with HSV2 in June... I contracted it in April from the guy I've been dating since February. My first outbreak was absolutely horrrrrrible - I went to the emergency room. He went to get (blood) tested after I got my positive result & sure enough, he was positive. He is asymptomatic & never even had a cold sore, so he says. My health has always been so important to me so the burden of having this and it being deemed incurable is truly mentally, physically, & spiritually taxing. However, I too believe that our bodies are beautifully designed to heal themselves but faith without work is dead. So I've been searching like crazy & have mostly been taking information from James Destroy Diseases on Youtube. I haven't told a soul & I'm still dating the guy from whom I contracted it from but I have no desire to have sex w/him because he doesn't seem too concerned about curing himself, even though he eats rather healthy & says he's incorporated oregano into lots of his food - he's just not all that interested in doing a complete regimen with me. I guess there's no urgency since he doesn't have to deal with the symptoms. I have had outbreaks every week since my initial outbreak (talk about feeling defeated) but they have been much more milder, only lasting about 3-5 days. And I hadn't had an outbreak in the past week *knock on wood* but I have the tingling in my feet & legs & buttocks. So far I've been putting Oregano oil that's diluted with Extra Virgin Olive oil on my spine. I try to do it twice a day but sometimes fail to apply it at night. I did initially do the drops in the 8oz of water in the morning but I slacked off. I'm going to start back on it in the a.m. I don't eat pork or much red meats (cant remember the last time I had beef) but I love fish (I get wild caught Salmon & Swai & Cod) and it's such a relief to know that I can incorporate this back into my diet. I've been transitioning into the raw food diet - mostly eating salads at lunch &/or cooked veggies from the cafe at work. I finally cut out breads which is really hard for me - I became dependent on a raisin & cinnamon bagel for breakfast since learning I could no longer have eggs or any animal products. I've been drinking alkaline water, pH 8.8, from my local Sprouts store. I also had been having a Garden of Life Raw Organic Shake & Meal Replacement w/o Stevia - it's NON GMO VERIFIED & stamped USDA Organic & raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy free & soy free w/live probiotics & Enzymes & no added sugar. But I stopped drinking it last week after seeing a video in which James says all (protein powders) are bad. Is this particular product bad? I loooove veggies but do I love them all raw -not so much & I know that cooked veggies lose most of their nutrients. So it would be of convenience & benefit to incorporate it back into my diet as it provided me w/20g of protein & lots of the nutrients I need. (I am considering getting a dehydrator & veggie spiralizer). Be that as it may I've been making smoothies/juices w/Kale, celery, spinach, almond milk, a banana, strawberries, blue berries, ground flax & chia seeds and sometimes a cube of avocado I've frozen. It actually tastes better than the Garden of Life organic shake mix. But buying fresh & organic produce so often is not really within my budget. I put cilantro & parsley & lemon in my 64 oz water bottle in the mornings & drink that throughout the day at work. I also take a daily multivitamin & 2 echinacea capsules in the a.m. I was taking 500 mg of Lysine in the a.m too but I hadn't this week since reading that it's not healthy to take everyday for long periods of time. Since last week I've accumulated hives on my fingers and feet -it itches sooo bad. Could this be a detox reaction? My skin is also breaking out really bad on my back, chest, upper arms & a little in the center of my forehead. I figure that's just toxins coming out of the largest organ of the body?? I also have lots of flatulence & more frequent bowel movements (I have never pooped 3 times in a day, lol).

Anyway, I'm going to incorporate the antioxidant shake & BHT & St.Johns Wort into my regimen. I have Sovereign Colloidal Silver & will start using that too. I am determined to heal my body!!

Last thing, I read that we should avoid starchy foods since they turn into sugar which feeds viruses/parasites but you give the okay for brown rice & sweet potatoes? Can you clarify/advise of your reasoning?

Troy thank you for all your help and Information! I've been doing the Oregano oil morning and night - Ole Max morning and night as well as BHT 3x's a day. I am also doing the colloidal silver 2x's a day. I've been doing clean eating, raw food berries, melons, etc. Also what about sweet potatoes, are they okay? And organic potatoes? What about organic sweet corn? I also read that you should do DMSO - is that right? What about MSM? I'm 3 months into this and want to make sure I get it right. My igg was 5.0. I want to rid my body of all of this I appreciate your help. Thank you!

The reason James says all protein powders/meal replacements are bad is because fresh is always best. This will always be the case Chelsea. However, you must also do what works for you and what is practical for you. I see no problem with the meal replacement you mention - it contains lots of healthy and essential ingredients. With starchy foods such as sweet potatoes and brown rice, we only advocate a "small" amount of these, which is not enough to cause any problems. Just make sure that you commit to taking your supplements every day without fail and following a raw food, primarily plant based diet every day without fail. This is extremely crucial as missing days/missing taking your supplements will definitely impact on you having a successful outcome after your 12 month period is up.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Chelsea!

Do not eat normal potatoes as they are high in resistant starch (which is difficult for the gut to digest). A SMALL amount of sweet potatoes is okay as these have less resistant starch - just be sure you don't eat too much. Organic sweet corn? Same again, not too much. Read the Dr Axe raw food diet article for more information on what you should and should not be eating... Raw Food Diet: Benefits, Risks and How to Do It. It provides a great outline.

Herpes test result?
by: C

Hi Troy. I really need your help. So I just got tested. I initially had sex with a female last August and shortly after she informed me that she had an outbreak and got tested on the lesion, along with a blood test, and the doctor told her it was genital herpes. Ever since then I just assumed I had it until recently when I read this whole article and really understood everything in depth. Last week I went to the doctor and told him my situation and requested an IgG blood test. He accepted but also ordered an IgM blood test even though I told him I wouldn't need one. The results came back and on the IgG level it was 0.5 and the IgM was a 2.49 - both are negative results. Does this confirm 100% that I'm negative or is there any reason at all I should doubt this and opt for a retest?? I want to be very sure before I move forward in my life and put this behind me. Oh and by the way, I'm currently living in South America so the Western blot test isn't an option. Please give me your advice. I really trust you over any doctor out there. Thank you.

H2O2 Drops
by: Cj

Dear Troy. 5 months in and I feel good, just a lot thinner and have less strength. Have been on the h2o2 for several weeks. Went up to the 25 drops and now working back down... now at 14. No issues other than got the HP on my lip and finger a few times not diluted and they turned white for few hours. Do you suggest to continue on the drops for the remaining 7 months I have left and if so how many drops. Kind of a pain because it has to be very regimental around food. I have seen on a site (Grow Youthful) a blog of people writing that some, not all, got a negative IgG result after doing the one minute cure. Do you suggest I just wait until my time is up to get tested again. Thanks. Enjoy the weekend!

I'm not sure if you've heard of Dr Joel Wallach or Dr Peter Glidden, but I heard their Youngevity product is remarkable. I'm thinking of going on a gluten free diet and using colloidal silver and Oregano oil to beat this. What do you think?

Reply to C
by: Troy

Hi Camilo. If it's been almost 12 months since you were/thought you were infected and this is your IgG antibody count/result then it's very likely that you were either not infected in the first place or what you have been doing/the protocol you have been following has killed the virus. Because you jumped on it straight away and hit it hard this is likely what has happened. IgG test results are rarely wrong. They can be out a little but a 0.5 IgG number is about as perfect as you can get or wish for. You can take the test again in a few months time just to be sure or you can actually opt for the Western blot test done by the University of Washington. Speak to your doctor about having the Western blot test done and have a read of this article... Getting the Western Blot Test Done. You can still get the Western blot test done even if you don't live in the U.S. Your doctor has to agree to this though, which is the hard part. Personally, I think you'll find that you no longer have the virus, however, a re-test can definitely be a good thing for your own piece of mind.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Staying on the maintenance dose/low dose recommended in the One Minute Cure book would definitely be worth it. It's a pain, yes, but the effort will be worth it big time in the end. Try and hold out until your 12 months is up before a re-test. If you can't hold out for that long at least wait until the 8-9 month mark for an IgG test and then another after your 12 months is done.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Garnet Yams?
by: Skye

Hi Troy. I read some of your messages in regards to sweet potatoes, but what about organic garnet yams? I've been eating about one a day along with a very clean raw diet, and honestly its been the one thing helping me get through the diet with my sanity. lol. I will say that I've been putting them in the microwave because it cooks a lot faster. Would the oven be considered healthier? Also, is one a day too much? I also now rarely eat the organic cage free eggs I bought, but is scrambling them instead of boiling them a big deal? I make sure to use cold pressed Greek extra virgin organic olive oil, but stopped doing so when I saw Heather mention boiled eggs being better? I just much prefer scrambled. Advice greatly appreciated.

Garnet yams are a type of sweet potato (they are not actually a yam). These are perfectly fine to eat. Try and oven bake or slightly roast them instead of microwaving them though. Scrambled eggs are also perfectly fine to eat, just don't add pasteurized cows milk to the mix. :)

Binged
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy, I was 7 weeks into the protocol and one day I binged. The binge has went on for about almost two weeks now. And when I say binged I mean horribly... eating everything in sight every day in high amounts. Chocolates, ice cream, pizza, desserts, cheese, alcohol and a little weed, ALOT OF THESE foods. I'm clogged up and can barely use the bathroom lately. I'm planning to start fresh on Friday or Monday. Did this binge un-do any of the work I did in 7 weeks? I was tested for a low case of hsv1 (igg 1.12) and I was following the regimen for 7 weeks straight perfectly. It was hard and torturous especially being summertime. I am planning to get tested soon just in case those 7 weeks of work killed the little bit of the virus I believe I have. Is this a possibility? Or should I not even bother? My question is that, and my question is also, did I completely undo those 7 weeks of work with this binge? Or can I pick up where I left off and continue? I feel like I need an intense detox boost right now and unload all of this.

Unfortunately, you wouldn't have done yourself any favors. That's the reality.

Pain in the Liver

Hello Troy, I have been taking Olivus 25% oleuropein since early June this year. While I have seen some improvements, I did however still feel the effects from it, namely pain in the joints/muscles, and lately pain in my upper right abdomen - I think around my liver area. Started off at 4 doses/day down to 1 now. I am aware my body is very toxic judging from years of alcohol abuse, adrenal issues and stress brought about from work/herpes, etc... Do you think the liver pain is normal or should I discontinue the OLE momentarily? Thanks

Olive leaf extract actually helps to support liver function, along with flushing out the toxins. This flushing however, combined with the die-off effect, can certainly cause the liver to become sore, along with other side effects such as painful/aching muscles. Stay with a light dose and then slowly increase of a period of several weeks if no adverse reactions are felt. Don't forget about the raw food diet and other supplements also, particularly a good probiotic supplement and a green detox food such as chlorella - plenty of cilantro as well. If your symptoms do persist, see your doctor (we are required by law to put this in).

All the best to you Edward!

Hi, thank you for sharing your story with us and giving us hope. I have some questions to ask please.

I have totally changed my diet and got all the supplements you recommend and are following your protocol.

However... I am struggling a lot to eat totally raw, no meat is not a problem but I am a professional athlete and still eating some cooked potatoes and a little roast veggies daily. Is this a big no no??

And my second question is since I have started this regime my outbreaks have gone from 1 every 5 months to 1 every 3 weeks. Does that mean its working or could I be doing something wrong?

Many thanks. A reply would be so helpful.

Milk

Dear Troy, still going strong. Another week will mark 6 months on this protocol. I have been doing well and have only missed a day or two the whole time, just for a break. Still on mostly raw and organic and still thin. Everyone asks me what's wrong. Never really know what to say and I hate lying. I have to say that I will be glad when it's over. I am still taking everything daily suggested here except some of the herbs and honey. It's become a routine for my daily life.

Just an FYI to the athlete losing weight... there is no way around it. I used to be a stocky 180lbs with some muscle tone and I am down 30lbs. I still exercise in my basement with weights but not much muscle left either.

Anyway Troy, I happen to find a farm stand that sells raw milk (not pasteurized or homogenized) from grass fed cows. Had some, it was great... actually the best thing I have tasted in 6 months. Can I drink this once a week? I would like it daily but it's costly. I want you to know I'm still going strong on this protocol and will finish the 12 months. I am still hopeful.

Thanks Troy.

Unfortunately by law, when it come to prescription medications, and because you're currently on prescription meds and under the care of a doctor for your pain/condition, I cannot comment on this. Hope you understand. The only thing I would say is that the CBD (which is a natural substance) is perfectly fine and will not affect your progress since it contains no THC (THC may affect herpes breakouts according to some reports, although no substantiated evidence has ever been presented on this).

All the best to you. :)

Eating some roast veggies every day is perfectly fine. With the potatoes, try and go with sweet potatoes if you can as these are lower in resistant starch (resistant starch is difficult for the gut to digest). You definitely need some carbs (and protein of course). With the increase in breakouts, this is normal. If you read the other comments you'll see that this happens to almost everyone. The virus is being drawn out, so unfortunately, breakouts can and usually do increase, quite dramatically in some cases. These will eventually slow down though and then go altogether. You just have to weather the storm. Apply some of the DMSO aloe vera cream on any lesions for extra fast healing and relief.

Hope this helps.

Herpes 1 and 2

Hi Troy, recently I was diagnosed with herpes 1 and 2 via an igg test. A week ago I started on the diet as you described, GO GREEN and RAW FOOD ONLY. Plus the coconut oil and oregano oil applied under the tongue and applied at the end of my spine. So far its been 2 weeks. With this treatment I've had no outbreaks at all. Is this considered good? And I am still going to continue for the next 6 months on the same diet. Please tell me if the virus doesn't appear is this good or bad? Is what I'm doing working or not? Thank you so much.

Keep in mind that two weeks is not very long. Your body will still be detoxing. While not having any breakouts can be a good sign, you should still brace yourself for possible outbreaks in the future. Try and add the OLE (especially this) and colloidal silver as well, at the very least. A green food such as chlorella and plenty of detoxing and heavy metal removing foods such as cilantro are also crucial.

Hope this helps.

Breakout?
by: Cj

Dear Troy, I have now completed 6 months. Must say it's been very difficult. Anyway, over the weekend I had what may have been a break out - a small red spot the size of an easer. It was gone in 24 hours. Usually I get a blister or two which lasts for 7 to 10 days. My last breakout was mid June (knock on wood), again not sure if this red spot was a BO but I have to assume it was as I never got random red spots before this " issue" started. If it was, would this be considered good news that it lasted only 24 hrs and was just a red spot? Also, I am considering taking chaparral for a couple of months but am nervous as I have read mixed reviews about liver damage and it causing hepatitis? I will get tested in December, which will make 9 months, and if I am still positive I was also considering ozone for the final months to deliver a knock out blow. I am still doing the H2o2 maintenance now. I wonder if it would be worth going up to the 25 drops again and back down? Thank you

Sep 25, 2017
Reply to CJ
by: Troy

The red spot you had could of been a breakout, I'm not sure to be honest. It could of been something else entirely too. Regardless, the fact that it went within 24 hours is a powerful sign that your immune system is strong and definitely on top of things. This is exactly what you want. The chaparral herb is a terrific herb. It contains some extremely potent antioxidants. The smear campaign against chaparral was (as usual) started by the medical mafia. They know it works and for this reason don't want you to have it! There has never been one ounce of proof that chaparral causes any harmful reactions to the human body. Don't buy into these lies. I recommend you take it if you want to (be sure to follow the directions on the container for dosage amounts of course). In regards to the h2o2, you can safely keep your maintenance dose anywhere between 5-15 drops daily (see chapter four of the One-Minute Cure book), so you could go up to 15 drops and see how you feel on this. If you feel okay then you could stay on this amount.

Hope this helps.

All the best Cj!

Heather diet
by: Pili

Hello,
On the diet by Heather she doesn't speak about BHT, lysine, vitamin C or zinc? She said she used oregano oil (AM&PM) but I didn't see it back on her description at #5 or #6. She mentioned it only on #9 before going to bed, the same for OLE. I get so confused. I'm trying to write down a typical day with everything I should take and when. I mostly camp so the quantity of stuff I can carry is reduced.
Can you help me to see it more clearly and make it easier? I've never been on a diet in my life as I already don't drink coffee, rarely alcohol, no fast food, I love fruit and vegetables, I don't eat fish. I live in nature most of the time. I don't think I'm intoxicated with heavy metals that much. How can I know?
I never get sick, my outbreaks (HSV2) are not that bad. I had my first one in June 2017. Since then I've been devastated as they are coming back every 2 or 3 weeks. I don't take any medicine. I just put on some herbal cream and wait a few days before it's gone.
I just want my life back.
Thanks.

Other supplements?
by: Anonymous

Is it okay to take apple cider vinegar during all of this and a multi vitamin? Also, is the olive leaf pills a must? I've only just started the treatment and any helpful tips would be much appreciated!!

Yes it's true that Heather didn't take the BHT or vitamin C and zinc (she did take lysine though but forgot to add it to her story), however, you should still consider adding these to your daily regimen. The reason? Getting rid of this virus is all about two things... detoxing the body and removing the heavy metals (yes you will still have heavy metals in your body. Have you been around pollution or car fumes ever in your life?) The fact that you already eat well and live well does go in your favor. Just remember that food alone is not enough though. You need immune boosting and detoxing supplements such as OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver, vitamin C, zinc, lysine, BHT and a good quality green food supplement such as chlorella. Have a read of all of the above comments, questions and answers for more insights, especially Natasha's comment on July 25th 2017. Also have a read of Jessica's story too... How I Successfully Treated & Cured My Herpes.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and all the best to you Pili!

ACV is perfectly fine to take and is actually included in the protocol (#9). The olive leaf extract is 100% CRUCIAL to the success of this protocol. Without it you'll be wasting your time so make sure you get on it (along with the oregano oil, colloidal silver, BHT, lysine, vitamin C, chlorella and zinc). Remember, lots and lots of cilantro also. You don't need to take a multi vitamin. Go with the supplements listed above instead. These are much more beneficial.

All the best!

Non-Organic? Frozen?
by: Anonymous

Just a quick question- I can't always get organic everything (e.g. cilantro and berries, etc). Is it better to have tonnes of non-organic cilantro/berries etc., or just a little bit of the organic stuff? Like, is it still doing me a little bit of good, or is it actually hindering the process?

And are frozen organic berries ok? Or does freezing kill them?

Thanks so much Troy. You're a star!

Good question. In my opinion, it's better to eat/consume tons of non-organic herbs, berries, etc, rather than just eating a small amount of organic produce. Obviously a large amount of organic would be the ideal, but you will still benefit if you don't have access to organic (or can't afford it). Just do the best you can. Your body will still detox. The OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver, H2O2 and BHT will help with this as well. Snap frozen berries are okay too if you can't find fresh ones (or it's the wrong time of season).

Hope this helps!

Silver by IV
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,
I too am thankful for all the information you have on this site. I was diagnosed in 2012 and recently found a doctor who provides silver treatments by IV with the objective of killing the herpes virus in me. It is a 2-hour a day regime (Mon-Fri) and I am supposed to do this for 9 weeks. What are your thoughts about this regime? I would really appreciate any insight you may be able to offer. Last question, when I was originally diagnosed in 2012, my IgG level was at 6. When I received my results from this doctor a few weeks ago, it was at 4.12. Is it normal for the level to fluctuate?

I’m 2 months in and I’ve been following the protocol closely. I feel much better than before. I had a reading of 1.9. I tested negative for the blood test but positive for the swab test. They were able to catch it early - I jumped right on protocol 2 days after I found out. I just wanted say thank you Troy for giving us hope!!

Daily schedule
by: Dave

Hello Troy, would you be kind enough to provide a full daily schedule of what needs to be taken / consumed on daily basis. I am looking for a full schedule including ingredients / food / pills and more. I do not know how long I have had HSV-2 for. I was always under the impression that the small spots in my crotch area were sweat pimples. Never did I think this might be HSV-2. I had this scratching feeling for years. Even my doctor was treating me for prostatic but never knew it was hsv2. After finally digging online I discovered my symptoms were similar to herpes. I decided to test myself last week and results were positive. I would appreciate if you can give all of us in need a daily schedule to help us fully understand what needs to be consumed with what. Thank you.

Lysine
by: Cj

Dear Troy, I do not watch too much of James destroy disease on you tube because he never replies to me, however, I watch on occasion to see if there is something new, such as milk thistle which he pushes. But he says lysine is a joke and that it contains heavy metals. I am still taking it at around 500 to 1000 mgs a day, not 3000. Any advice or comments on if it contains heavy metals? Seems difficult to think it would.
Thank you.

Oct 02, 2017
Reply to Dave
by: Troy

Hi Dave. This is somewhat impossible because each person has access to different supplements, foods, etc. The basics are the OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver, BHT, St John's Wort, lysine, vitamin C, zinc, a green food supplement such as chlorella or wheatgrass, and H2O2. Of course a raw food diet, eating lots of cilantro, turmeric, garlic, onions, probiotic rich foods and so forth is also paramount. Have a read of Natasha's comment back on July 25th 2017. Apart from the Fiji water (I recommend you drink your own filtered water instead), this is pretty much spot on with what is required. Remember, there is no EXACT way as such. Detoxing the body and removing all heavy metals is what will rid your body of the virus.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you!

Some lysine supplements can contain heavy metals, which is why you should always go with a good quality brand. As far as lysine being a joke for treating herpes, I don't agree with James on this one. Research using lysine to combat herpes dates back as far as 1957. It's been proven to work in so many studies that I'm surprized there is even a debate on it's effectiveness. 500-1000 mg's a day at your stage of the protocol is perfect. I do agree with James on the effectiveness of the milk thistle herb though. It's a powerful detoxifier, especially for the liver.

All the best! :)

Yes, colloidal silver can be given intravenously. Theoretically, this would be more effective as the silver is injected straight into the bloodstream, thereby bypassing the liver. I don't know a whole lot about this form of therapy to be honest and haven't heard from anyone who has used it. If you do decide to go ahead with it, my advice would be to make sure your doctor is 100% experienced in this form of treatment. As far as your IgG levels fluctuating? In a 5 year time period between testing, this can happen as antibody levels rise and fall.

Good luck and all the best to you. :)

Tested negative!
by: Stacy

Hi Troy, this is Stacy from a few months ago. I wanted to come back here and share my story. I started this detox at the beginning of June and I continued it religiously until mid August. I ended up going on a binge (anonymous "binge" comment was from me) and that binge dragged on for a month. I told myself all that hard work was gone and I had to start this detox all over again. I only had HSV type one so something told me to take the test again, just in case those two and a half months of detox did do anything good for me (because I really didn't want to start this all over again). Anyways, I went to my doctor who was not the one who initially told me I was positive back in March. I went to my other doctor and asked for a blood test that tested for everything, including HSV 1&2. She called me the other day and I was negative!!!! I almost didn't believe it!! It took me about a week to gather my thoughts. I am so happy and I finally found the time and the focus to come back on this blog and share this. I didn't want to right away because I remember religiously reading every comment on the blog and asking new questions all the time. It got exhausting. But I want anybody reading this to know that if you stick to it you will get the results. What I did was use all of the berry powders James suggested (minus the extremely expensive ones). I had at least 8-9 of them out of the whole 11. Wheatgrass every day and chlorella tablets everyday. Clean water with no heavy metals. Toothpaste and deodorant with no fluoride or aluminium. I ate mainly fresh fruits and vegetables, whole or as smoothies and juices. I put coriander and parsley in many of my salads. The only cooked food I had was lightly sautéed greens, boiled eggs and lentil soup. I put hemp seeds and chia seeds in my lentil soup for protein and healthy fats. I ate salmon maybe once a week, just because I was getting so skinny. I took oregano oil under the tongue for ten minutes with coconut oil every morning and night, along with putting it on my lower spine. And once a day I drank a few drops of it with water. I took zinc and lysine but not so consistently and I also wasn't too consistent with the colloidal silver because I didn't always have it on me when I was on vacation. To be honest, this detox was the hardest thing I have done in my life. I prayed every single day and night for God to help with this detox and make it a speedy one. I felt tortured at family events when I couldn't eat what I wanted to eat. I am thankful that it didn't take me as long as it usually does. They say 4-6 months or even 6-12 months. Being that mine was type one and I was already a pretty clean eater before all of this might have gone in my favor. I just wanted to put this out there because I know how all of you feel. I've been there and it was hell for me to deal with and made me very antisocial and paranoid (to share objects, to date, etc). Remember... THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! Just do it and know that it will be over! I would suggest you get tested maybe every 2-3 months just to know where you're at. Because you just never know. I doubted getting myself re-tested after three months but I did anyways and I'm glad I did. If you do get re-tested and it's still positive, don't give up, just keep going until your result is NEGATIVE!

Alternative brands of OLE?
by: Nicole

The brand of OLE you recommend is great but is a bit expensive. I found some other brands that I'd like your opinion on:

HerbalFactors with 15% Oleuropein.
Other Ingredients: Gelatin capsule (gelatin, purified water), rice powder, magnesium stearate (vegetable grade).


Gaia Herbs; Oleuropein percentage not labeled. Other Ingredients: Vegeatble glycerin , capsule (vegetable cellulose).


Nature's Way Olive leaf Standardized: 12% Oleuropein. Other Ingredients: Gelatin (capsule), magnesium stearate, millet.

Also, I'll will stomach the taste of Oregano Oil if I have to, but oh my goodness it is awful. I experimented a little and I took apart some apple cider vinegar capsules and filled them with Zane Hellas Oregano Oil, making it easier to get it in my system. Is this okay?

Thanks for all your help and support Troy.

Thanks for sharing your story Stacy. I think the fact that you were already fairly healthy to begin with, and the fact that you had HSV1, did work in your favor as far as your short time frame was concerned. You made a really important point at the end of your story which I love. You said... "THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! Just do it and know that it will be over! I would suggest you get tested maybe every 2-3 months just to know where you're at. Because you just never know. I doubted getting myself re-tested after three months but I did anyways and I'm glad I did.

That's the crux to following this whole protocol... "Just keep going until your result is NEGATIVE!"

Congratulations and thank you once again for sharing your story.

Hi Nicole. The problem with the 3 OLE brands you list, they are simply not strong enough. You would need to take at least 6-9 capsules of these a day (except for the second one which doesn't list it's oleuropein content, so I would stay completely away from this brand). If you do the maths, you'll find that these would end up costing you more in the long run. That's even assuming they ARE strong enough. The Olivus OLE and Real European OLE work - there's no question. They might cost more, but there's a reason. Their potency is the highest you'll find. Of course, it's your choice at the end of the day though. In regards to the oregano oil, you can buy the Zane Hellas in capsule form, which is much easier to take orally... Zane Hellas Oregano Oil Softgels.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Oregano Oil Consumption
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy, I noticed you mentioned to Nicole that taking the oregano oil orally in capsule form is easier. I'm having a really tough time drinking it in water as well, but I have it in oil form so I can apply it topically on the base of my spine. I'm a traveller so it's hard for me to carry both forms. What's another oral way I can take the oregano oil that's easier to go down? I want to make sure I'm taking the proper dosage. Just wondering if holding it under my tongue with coconut oil is enough.

Also, I will be living in Vietnam and I'm wondering if you happen to know of any Asian exotic fruits or vegetables that have amazing health benefits so I can take advantage of this. Thanks :)

Oregano Oil Australia

Hi Troy,
I've just begun to gather all the required ingredients to start the regime after researching for one month.

Do you have any other recommendations?

Yes, you need to do a combination of holding the oregano oil mixed with coconut oil under the tongue for 10 minutes AND taking it orally. If you struggle having it with water then try with a fruit juice. In regards to living in Vietnam, most fruits have excellent health benefits. It's where they are grown that makes the difference. The tropics produce more nutritionally beneficial fruits and vegetables that's for sure. I recommend you eat them all, especially mangoes, avocados, pineapples, coconuts, papaya, guava, lemons, limes, and berries. :)

Angry/concerned/sick

Dear sir, I have been following this regime for many months now and I have never posted here or asked a question, however, I have read every question many many times. I see that you have been accused here several times of being a scammer and you are taking advantage of people to line your pockets. I was a believer in you, thought you were someone who cared. I am 6'2", was 220lbs prior to starting this, now I'm 160 and look sick. Have been through hell doing this protocol and having the virus is mentally and emotionally draining, not to mention the physical crap. I have lost my significant other because of it and I am angry. I question you and here is why... In the "Jessica" story "she" used words like "rubbish" and "down the track" just as you do on the home page of the herpes article. At the very end you write that you believe with your method it can be eliminated from the body. Most people do not use those types of words, so it leads me to strongly believe you did write the Heather and Jessica stories... YES OR NO?? Many of us suffering doing this protocol and the money we've spent, if we knew for sure that you or anyone was scamming us I would want to tear your head off. If not and you are honest I would want to shake your hand and tell you how you saved my life. Which one is it? Unlikely this will get posted.

Fully raw??
by: Jade

Hi Troy, I’m so very thankful for this website. Lots of useful information and Heather's story has given me hope. I have a couple of questions. I’ve had genital herpes for about 3 years now. I’ve tried going 100% raw in order to detox this out of my body and I almost withered away. Before going raw I was 130 lbs. After a month, I dropped to 115 and everyone thought I was sick. I really want to get this virus out of my body and I plan on cutting out junk food and animal products (with the exception of eggs and cheese). The plan is to still eat cooked, gluten free foods, and have 2 green smoothies a day. Is this a good plan to rid myself of this virus? I don’t feel like I can sustain myself on a 100% raw food diet. Last time I went 100% raw, I lost a lot of weight and was always tired. Your advice would be great, thanks!

Caught early on...?
by: Circadian

Hello!
Troy, thank you for your excellent work so far and the hope that you've given everyone. I recently found that I had contracted HSV2.
When I did the blood test, the IgG test was negative (it said index = 0.55 while it would require an index >= 1.1 to be considered positive) but unfortunately the PCR swab test (done on the same day) came positive for HSV2.
Does that mean it is a recent infection?
Also, if that is the case, would that mean that I could get rid of it faster?

All the best.

First off, thank you for all the support. Coming back here and seeing your commitment to this page has really given me a lot of hope. My questions is regarding the oregano oil and OLE. I've been going for nine months and I'm throwing everything I've got at this virus. This means I've upped my dosages to two 9 drops servings of Zane Hellas oregano oil and 5 OLE capsules 3 times a day. Should I break these doses up a bit more? Or can I even up the dose? And I'm still taking 5 Teaspoons of colloidal silver. Should I drop it to 3 or keep it as is? Thanks again for all your support. I hope to be writing to you in the year with successful results!

Some basic information
by: Anonymous

Dear Troy, I have been keeping up to date on peoples questions, story's, answers, etc. I to am actually starting to follow this program. I was diagnosed with hsv1 approx 14 months ago and only experienced one breakout. 6 months later I went for a test again and came back not detected for hsv1 from the blood test that was done. The person who did the test said to me that I killed the virus. I was over the moon. I then went on a holiday over seas and due to lack of sleep and a very nervous flyer, on the way home I noticed a single small ulcer. I was so confused that I went back to the Dr and they did a swab test and it came back as hsv1. Now most Dr's in OZ will tell you not to do a blood test because they are inaccurate. So anyway, my main question was does this protocol actually completely cure you from this virus so you never have to worry about it coming back ever again no matter what you eat/drink, or any of your prior triggers to this? Or does this just suppress the virus and leave it still in your system? So for example, if sunburn was a trigger for a breakout does that mean if after you test negative to this virus you will be able to live as you did before you had it? I really appreciate all your information and hope to hear back from you soon. Thanks Troy.

by: Troy

Hello anonymous. I'm not going to get into "justifications" with you over the authenticity of Heather and Jessica's stories. If you believe I wrote them then so be it. Unfortunately, I have no way of proving without doubt that both of their stories are genuine. Neither women would allow their test results to be posted and neither even wanted to give out their first name, so that does make it hard. As far as myself and Jessica using some of the same words, I mean, come on, you can't be serious? And you say that I've "been accused several times of being a scammer"? It's only been once in fact, and that was from Rick (August 5th, 2017). Rick never bothered to reply to my comment after though, even though he ticked the box to be notified when his question was posted and answered - he would have seen it come up.

In regards to the amount of weight you have lost, 60 pounds is a lot - too much in fact. That's why we recommend you still eat protein from chicken, fish, etc, so you don't drop an excessive amount of weight. James recommends you don't eat these but the problem is, if you cut them out totally you do lose too much weight. I don't agree with him on this one. If you feel sick then something is wrong. You don't say exactly how long you've been on the protocol (or give a full outline of what you're doing) but if it's up around the 9 month mark then you should be feeling healthy and full of energy, not feeling sick. List the full protocol that you are doing (every bit of it) and the foods you are eating, along with how long you have been following it for and I will help you. In addition, have you had a re-test to see where you're at? What is your current viral load? I recommend you get re-tested now so you can see how far you've actually come.

Hope this helps.

Best regards.

Yes, this would be a good plan Jade. Going COMPLETELY raw is not a good idea in my opinion. This is one thing that James and I don't agree on. He's all for a completely raw diet but I believe that you lose too much weight doing this (which you and others are finding out is the case). Eat free range chicken, wild caught salmon, etc, (cooked of course) to keep your body weight up. You will still get rid of the virus doing this.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

35% Food Grade HP is the Answer!!!

Hi all, hope this comment is posted. I was following the protocol listed on this website from July but what has really worked for me is the 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. I am also in ozone therapy, and thank God it's working.

I haven't heard of anyone getting rid of the virus with the HP treatment alone. To get rid of the virus you need to hit it with everything you've got. While the hydrogen peroxide method outlined in the One Minute Cure book is extremely powerful (and one I definitely recommend you do), a multi pronged, holistic approach is what will work. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts. :)

Hi Steve. Be careful with the Tilapia. I'm with Dr Axe, it's not really the best option... Eating Tilapia Is Worse Than Eating Bacon. To get your B12, go with a good quality chlorella or wheat grass powder. These are a much better alternative and help to remove the heavy metals as well. Organic eggs and juiced fruits & vegetables are good so knock yourself out consuming these.

All the best! :)

Yes, more than likely you've recently been infected. Expect your IgG antibody level to rise over the next 3 months or more - that's how long it will take for it to come out fully. The question you ask is a common one. If you have been recently infected then, yes, it is easier to get rid of the virus. Jump on it now, hit it with all you've got, and it will be a thing of the past.

You are doing well. The dosages you're taking are good. I would leave them as is, however, if you can break up the servings throughout the day that would be even better. For instance, taking 3 OLE capsules 5 times a day is better than having 5 capsules 3 times per day.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

This protocol is not a band-aid fix. Once you get rid of the virus you get rid of it for good... period! Hopefully, though, you learn something from following this protocol and continue to treat your body well afterwards. Yes, you can go back to eating and drinking whatever you like and "living as you did before the virus", even if these were unhealthy, but if you did do this then you would have learned nothing. This protocol isn't just about getting rid of the herpes virus (even though that's all you care about at this point, which is of course, understandable), it's about you learning to look after your body and take care of it properly so you get to live to be an old man or woman! Once you get to the end and get that negative test, I think you will see the bigger picture - most people do.

Good luck and all the best to you!

What you are doing is so close to the mark. The only thing I would recommend you add is the hydrogen peroxide method as listed in the One Minute Cure book (chapter 4)... The One-Minute Cure. Apart from this, you've nailed it!

Inconveniently Timed Family Holiday
by: Natasha

Hi Troy, it's Natasha again (I submitted an extensive post on July 25th). I wasn't able to continue my regime for some unavoidable reasons that would take too long to go into. I am recommencing with 100% commitment beginning of February 2018 and can go full on until end of October (so a full 9 months). I will get retested (for HSV2) at the end. I am hoping it will have been long enough because in November, I have a family overseas 2 week holiday where I will not be able to do the full regime. My question is... if I have a 2 week break where I do my best (no alcohol, some supplements, bottled water and try to eat as good as I can), can I just go back into the full regime when I return, to complete the next 3 months to get me to 12? My main worry is diet because my extended family don't know I'm on this detox and I will have to eat out at a lot of restaurants whilst on holiday. I can order the freshest thing on the menu but it won't be 100% as per protocol. Can the 12 months continue through this holiday, or will I pretty much be starting from zero when I return? I know there is no black and white answer but I would appreciate your thoughts! Thank you sincerely Troy for all you do for everyone :)

OLE 40% Oleuropein
by: Pili

Hi Troy,
Thanks for your previous answers. I found these on the internet... OLE with 40% oleuropein www.herbosophy.com.au/olive-leaf-x40-40-oleuropein What do you think about them?

Also, with the BHT and St John's Wort, does it matter that I've taken 250mg but with 500mg of St John's Wort? Or should it be the same mg's for both?
Thanks

Hi Natasha. Yes you can do this. After 9 months (if you do everything right commitment wise) you will be very close. You may even be free of the virus by this time (I cant say for certain though of course). Just do the best you can when you go on your holiday. Eat as best you can, but be sure to continue with as many of the supplements as you can. Things like the OLE, colloidal silver, oregano oil and so forth are easy - you can easily take them with you. Once you get back, finish your 3 months - even get re-tested when you get back to see where you're at, see what your IgG level is? That's what I would suggest. Oh, and don't forget to enjoy your holiday. No use going on a holiday if you don't enjoy it!

All the best to you Natasha. :)

I've been asked about this particular OLE supplement before. It's a good brand, so yes, stay with it. With the BHT and St John's Wort, have a read of our article again on how you should be taking the BHT and SJW. It explains exactly how to take them both.

Hope this helps.

Having a Day Off for Hockey Game?
by: CJ

Dear Troy, I will complete 7 months in a few days. A couple questions... We are headed toward winter and here in the north east most of the farm stands have closed up. Must have bought a million blueberries from my local farm stand along with vegetables... all pesticide free. The food markets don't have too much to offer in regards to organic during the winter. Will it be ok to continue the diet on mostly non organic fruits and vegetables? Also, I want to ask if I can take a day off or at least a night off from the protocol to go to a hockey game, have several beers and some garbage food? I have been as strict with the routine as anyone and have stuck with it now for months. Also an FYI to others... I have been taking the H2O2 for about 4 maybe 5 months with no issues. I will get tested again in December, which will make 9 months and I will consider ozone for a grand finale if I am still positive at this time. We had chatted about chaparral not long ago and I will start that soon and report back for others if it's good or bad. This has been extremely difficult but I will continue. Once in a while I cheat with the food but 99% of the time it's the diet laid out and organic - two jobs to pay for the food and supplements. Thank u. Hope u are well.

Need a little help...
by: Dc

Hi Troy,
I was diagnosed with HSV2 in the beginning of September. I think this was around the time I contracted it since I had been messing around with a girl for a few weeks, and driving home after the last time I saw her I got itching and tingling in my genital area. Got a few lesions and went to get tested. It came back positive (1.58). I had a pretty bad outbreak about a week later. About a week after that I started taking the OLE. Soon after I added oregano oil drops in olive oil under my tongue and on my tailbone twice a day. I am also taking selenium, zinc, lysine, Vitamin D, Sodium Ascorbate vitamin C and H2O2. I immediately quit smoking and stopped drinking. Do you think I got to this in time to speed up curing it? Also, I am having trouble with the raw vegan diet. I have been a bodybuilder for 20 years and my body is not adjusting well to this way of eating. Can you recommend any foods I can add to increase my calories and protein as I am losing weight and feeling sick and hungry most of the time. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Troy,

I've been following all the discussions for the last few weeks and started the protocol this week. As with others who have actively posted, I am extremely grateful for your guidance on a natural cure for HSV1&2.

I would like to clarify if there is any difference in efficiency whether colloidal silver is taken sublingually and then spitted out, or must it be swallowed?

Is it ok to eat organic packaged food (eg. cashew carrot ginger biscuits in a carton) or pre-made packaged soups with no preservatives, etc? Just thinking about quick ready food to stock up in case I come home late and am too tired to cook/prepare my special meals.

Which brands and dosage would you recommend for chlorella and probiotic tablets please?

Finally, is it ok to use organic yogurt to make Heather's antioxidant shakes?

Also to clarify, wheat and gluten are bad right? Can you share why?

Thank you!

I feel like I am getting closer
by: Brooke

I'm 30 years old, about 5’1", now currently weighing around 105 lbs after doing this protocol for about 4 1/2 - 5 months. I’ve had herpes type 2 for about 9 years. I worked out daily prior to this and ate similarly healthy. I now only workout a couple times a week including yoga due to recently being in a car accident. My daily protocol is...

6am and 7:30pm; fractionated coconut oil under my tongue with 3 drops of oregano oil and oregano on my spine and normal breakout spot.
7am and afternoon 5pm; I take 5ml of apple cider vinegar mixed in water with a dash of cayenne along with 4 drops of oregano oil in a capsule and 2 olive leaf extract (nusa pure).
Antioxidants in a smoothly breakfast with organic juice, banana, frozen fruit, about a heaping teaspoon of wheat grass powder, chlorella, açaí berry, pomegranate, and camu camu power.
Collidal silver 4 droppers 3-5 times daily
Around 9 I take lysine, C, zinc, Maca, b-12
11:30; coconut oil with BHt and St. John’s wort. (I get that I should probably try to increase this but I have found the BHT makes me feel weird. I originally started by opening the capsule and only taking half).
12:30; C, B-12, and lysine
3:30; C and lysine

My Diet consists of minimally processed organic food. I try to incorporate raw fruits and vegetables throughout my day or at least one salad. I am also eating organic taco shells, organic brown rice, lentil or chickpeas pasta, and organic eggs. I do allow myself cheat meals about once or twice a week. I also drink Tito’s and water about 2 double shots every other week and smoke pot almost daily using a dry herb vape. I just tested myself for the first time since starting this protocol and the results of my IgG were 6.60.

Troy, please advise me on my progress or any additional things I should be doing or not doing. Thank you so much for your help and advice. I believe I am getting closer and will do this!

Sharing my personal experience erradicating G-Herpes
by: Anonymous

Hi, I 'd like to share my experience for eradicating the virus from my body;
First, I followed this protocol including: OLE Olivus MAX + Oregano Oil + Vitamin C 2 stage + Colloidal Silver + raw food diet + pomegranate and acai powder. From July through to now I have avoided eating foods containing higher amounts of arginine than lysine, so my food has been salads with coriander, tortilla (corn), avocados, kale, broccoli, beetroot, carrots, cauliflower, green leafy veg with lemon and any other additional vegetables I could get. I ate fruits such as green grapes, natural orange juice and pineapples because I started to feel weak. I bought iron and calcium citrate for my bones because I started to lose weight. I ate salmon protein and organic whey protein becuase these are rich in lysine. I had been doing this through to September, then I realized that the virus was contained and the itching had stopped, as long as I stopped eating foods that contain arginine. Then I started the Hydrogen peroxide 35% food grade protocol and since I knew my body was being detoxed from July, I started with 20 drops in an 8 oz glass of water. I stooped taking the other pills because I felt there were too many pills in my stomach. I continued with the HP 35% grade (it has to be diluted to make it 3% so you can drink it) and started ozone therapy by injections in my back to eradicate the virus from where it hides. And believe me, I am experiencing a great improvement. My viral load has greatly diminished and I almost don't feel the awful itching down there anymore. My body feels more oxygenated and I know I am eradicating it. I am exercising in the mornings to improve my body oxygenation and continue to eat my salads. Make sure you include lots of coriander with lemon as I read that it was used in the past to fight smallpox. You will feel your virus symptoms disappear much quicker if you do this, along with using the ozone H2O2 therapy. Make sure you stop drinking alcohol, eating junk food, having coffee, or eating anything containing sugar or foods containing arginine. I stopped eating eggs because of their arginine level. In regards to the intake of the HP 35% and ozone therapy, it definitely works. I receive ozone every two days and it is said that the more oxygenated your body is, the easier your body will eliminate the virus.
May The Lord Jesus bless you all!

Hi Cj. Firstly, having non-organic fruits and vegetables is fine. It's definitely hard when winter hits - there's not as much available as in the summer months. Like I always say, just do the best you can. In regards to having a rest day? I can't tell you what to do. What I will say is that I wouldn't do it - not have a FULL day off anyway. You're so close Cj. If it were me I would still take my supplements for that day (as best I could, even if I took many/most of them together before I went and again when I returned - better than not having them at all) and have a few beers and a couple of "treats" while at the game, but without going overboard. Like I said, you're so close to finishing this! I know it's hard, and I get that. Keep your eye on the finish line.

Hope this helps.

All the best, and enjoy the game! :)

IgG test fluctuation
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,
So I been following this protocol and I’ve had this virus for 12 years. Anyway, before starting this protocol and at one clinic my IgG was 3.52. I went pretty hard with this protocol and got tested again at a different lab and my IgG reading went up to 4.82. My question is should my IgG level fluctuate like this? Or is it suppose to be decreasing as time goes by? James did mention that you should always test at the same clinic. Do you think I should retest at the first clinic?

Thank you

Reply to DC
by: Troy

Hi DC. This is a common question. Yes, jumping on the protocol early to destroy the virus is good and can certainly quicken the process, BUT, and I really want to emphasize the "but" because one of the problems I see with people who have only recently been infected is many are still looking for the easy option or quick route. Not saying this is you, but you have to have the mindset that it takes what it takes (6 months, 8 months, 12 months... doesn't matter) and you MUST be willing to give it your all - there can be no back door for this (it's locked shut and you've thrown away the key). With that said, you're on the right track. Get on the colloidal silver and BHT if you can as well - these two are exceptionally good and exceptionally powerful. With the diet, it's not a raw vegan diet you should be following, it's a raw food diet. There is a difference... Raw Food Diet: Benefits, Risks and How to Do It. Eat wild caught salmon and free range chicken for protein. Also find a good quality "natural" non GMO pea protein powder. Yes, they contain arginine, but not excessively high amounts, and they also contain lysine, which helps to offset the arginine (plus you're already taking lysine as well which helps even more).

Hope this helps you DC.

All the best!

The colloidal silver should be held under the tongue first for at least 30 seconds then swallowed. Spitting it out afterwards would waste it's benefits. Don't eat organic packaged foods, they are rubbish and will not benefit you. Make your food/dinner earlier on in the day if you have to and keep it in the fridge. Although this is not as good as fresh made, it's still a much better alternative than packaged foods (even if they're labelled "organic"). For probiotics, I like Dr Tobias. If you can't get this one, go for the one with the highest CFU's (colony forming units) that you can find. With the chlorella, make sure it's organic broken cell wall chlorella with CGF (chlorella growth factor). I like the Potent Organics brand but it's not easy to find. Organic yogurt is okay as long as it's not made from processed cows milk (pasteurized/homogenized). Yes, wheat (gluten) should be avoided if possible. It can cause the body's immune system to attack both the gluten (in the gut) AND the gut wall. This is not what you want to happen. Most people have some type of allergy (in varying degrees) to gluten so it's best to give it a miss to be on the safe side.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you!

Hi Brooke. Firstly, with the OLE, you should be taking 4 a day of these (two in the morning and two at night on their own on an empty stomach is best). The H2O2 should also be included (as per the One Minute Cure book protocol). With the BHT, if you slowly increase the dosage over a period of several weeks you'll find it much easier. Make sure you're eating lots of cilantro too (as much as you can fit in). In regards to having a cheat meal... one (small) meal a week is plenty. Anything more and you're undoing your work. With the Vodka and pot, I have to be honest, they should go (I'm only making recommendations here remember, you're free to do as you choose). Most marijuana contains chemicals/pesticides and can actually induce breakouts. Remember, you have to get your body to detox and rid itself of heavy metals - that's the only way you're going to destroy this virus. It's hard but you need to get rid of anything that's going to hamper your progress. Your reading is still quite high (I don't know what it was before you started) so you've still got a little ways to go. But you're on the right track and that's what matters. All you need to do is tweak what you're doing.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Brooke!

Reply to "IgG Test Fluctuation" Comment
by: Troy

Yes, you should definitely stick with the same testing facility if you can. Your IgG level should start going down over time (not up). You don't say how long you've been on the protocol for or how strict you've been so it's hard to make an honest assessment of your progress. I never recommend a re-test until at least 8 months into the protocol though. By this time, you know exactly where you're at.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Follow up
by: Cj

Dear Troy, just wanted to follow up... I did go to the hockey game (only thing fun I have done in 6 months). I did take all my supplements up to about 4pm then took a break. I did cheat a bit having 2 beers a slice of pizza and a turkey sub but right back to it the next day. Yes it is a routine now but it's hard to say if it's getting easier or more difficult... depends on the day I guess. I really want to put my 25lbs back on and look like I did before and enjoy all those things. I have one cheat meal a week which is usually haddock and veggies from a local eatery and one beer. Other than that I eat the same detoxing foods daily and yes headed into the winter now so organic food is less available and even more expensive. I will keep this up... the only question I had was I am now 7 months complete, still taking BHT 1000 mg per day (with st johns). Should I drop to 500 or continue at 1000? I am still taking everything else on schedule... Ole, Oregano oil, bht, silver, h2o2... everything listed on the home page. Thanks, the game was good and was a needed break.

This article inspired me to hit my disease harder. I really appreciate the feedback, a very collective article. A question I have, and I know everyone is different, but what the heck are we supposed to eat... do we go vegan, go pescatarian, take lysine, don't take lysine? This is going to be a big journey but I am ready for it.

I'm so grateful to have found this post. I just started my protocol 2 days ago. It took me a while to get started and to order everything (still expecting the superfood powders), but I'm so glad I'm finally here. I've probably read this post along with the cure protocol link a thousand times to get it right. I look forward to being free of herpes. It's kinda of strange to say I'm thankful to you and for contracting this thing, but it has strengthened my faith and my love for God. You are awesome.

Some more information
by: Anonymous

Dear Troy. Thank you for replying to my last question. I have some other quick questions if I may.

First of all, as other people have said on this site, when someone who was positive goes to negative then what does their Dr say? For e.g, Heather, after she did that test her Dr would have contacted someone and said "hey this woman just cured her hsv?", Or do they just go ok what Ever? I went to my Dr yesterday and told her what I'm going to do to cure my self and she laughed at me. She said you can do this for your own peace of mind but in 6,8 or 12 months when you retest you will still be positive. So anyway my question is with all your heart, if this is done the way you say to do it will I be able to re test and throw it in her face? She said to me if you come back negative in 6 months or a year I'll be making some phone calls!
Anyways, what other choices do other hsv suffers have at the end of the day? People are following this protocol with no real solid evidence at all. Only your word and some other words from other people. The only thing Troy is that people are already mentally scared from having this virus, let alone being led to change their life style so drastically. That also is so mentally tough to deal with and to stick to this diet. I've been detoxing for 3 months and now about to start the rest of the supplements such as the oregano oil, Olive leaf, etc. Deep down I don't feel like there is any truth to this protocol, but at the same time it's the only thing that gives me any hope of killing this thing and keeps me going. Anyway Troy, at the same time I thank you for all your information and hope and the end of all this I can meet you and shake your hand. :)

When it comes to your diet, it's a raw food diet you should be following (read the "Raw Food Diet: Benefits, Risks and How to do it" article for more information). If you want to go vegan or are already vegan, this is fine too. Make sure you don't eat refined and processed foods, and you eat LOTS of detoxing foods (herbs, spices, green foods, etc). In regards to lysine, I always recommend it. It's been proven over and over again to help treat herpes so why wouldn't you take it? I know James is not a fan of it but I am.

Hope this helps you Jay.

Yes you are right, we don't have any "absolute" proof that this works (in medical terms), nor can we prove outright that Heather, Jessica and Stacy are real people (I've been repeatedly accused of fabricating their stories). But I'm through explaining myself. I always say to people that if you have any doubts (as you say you do) then don't do this. I never try and force anyone to follow this. The reason Heather's doctor didn't shout from the rooftops that there is in fact a cure for herpes is because the medical profession will NEVER believe or approve of alternative therapies. For instance, when someone who's terminally ill from cancer recovers using alternative therapies (baking soda/molasses protocol, B17, calcium therapy, hydrogen peroxide, etc) do their doctors go telling everyone in the country that a cure for cancer has been found? Of course they don't. Why? Because they don't believe in ANY type of cure unless it's a "drug". Instead, they just put you down as a "special case". If you test positive for herpes then follow an "alternative" protocol and test negative 12 months down the track, all your doctor will say is that there must have been an "irregularity" with your first results, or some rubbish along those lines. I really hope you do follow this protocol and see it through and give it all you've got - not so you can throw it in your doctors face, but so you can free from this virus. That's all that matters.

The choice is yours of course. I wish you well with whatever course of action you choose to take.

All the best! :)

Organic Coriander

Hi Troy,

I have purchased all the supplements and such and have embarked on a raw food diet. I have many fruits and vegetables, namely antioxidants, chlorella and many other raw fruit powders for my smoothies. One thing I cannot get hold of is organic coriander. Would it be worth having non-organic or would it be better to have none? Is there a substitute for this... it seems very important. Please help.

Thank you so much.

Looking for answers?
by: Anonymous

I am a 22 year old single female from Canada that has just been infected with HSV-2. I have only ever been in sexual relations with 3 men. I was practicing abstinence for the longest time after an engagement when I made a promise to God I would never do it again, unless I was married. I broke this promise after making the most stupid decision of my life, giving up my body to a man I thought I could trust. A man I used as a void to help ease the pain from my ex. Little did I know, what I was getting myself into was far more painful than anything else I could have ever imagined. I tried to find comfort and healing in a man, rather than God, and here I am. You play with fire, you get burned. I know this now, and it is the biggest lesson I have learned thus far. Now me, as well as everyone reading this thread, is probably going through the exact same wave of emotions I am. Completely and utterly mortified, left with an unlimited amount of questions, facing mixed emotions, thoughts of no longer existing, anger, self doubt, embarrassment, the list is infinite... being a firm believer that there is a cure for everything, and the body can fight off all infections and diseases, I have not, and will not stop researching everything I possibly can to kill this virus and get it out of my system. I am going to gather everything I need and start this 12 month journey as soon as possible, and with the grace of God pray from the very depths of my soul I can rid myself from this terrible disease. Now having absolutely no intentions on being sexually active again until I believe I have found the one, this has taken such a huge toll on me. I can't help but question whether or not I will be able to have unprotected sex years from now with the one I love without putting them at risk. As well as question whether or not I will still have to inform him I once had it... I'm a wreck in every which way. Really hoping you can answer my questions.

Thank you and God bless.

Some basic information
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy. Yes I do agree with you on those points about Dr's not taking anything into regards that are possible cures and may take money away from big pharma. And yes it is up to people to make up there own minds whether they feel it's all legit or not. But sometimes when people are desperate they will do anything.

Anyways, one other thing if I may that somewhat confuses me is with Stacy's story. She says she had HSV1 but she also says she has never had a break out. So in saying that, if a person does a blood test, there is no way of showing exactly where the virus is unless you have symptoms and a swab test is taken, and unless the test shows HSV2 then most likely its genital. Something like 80% of the world's population have HSV1 cold sores. So my question is, why would she go through all this effort and hard work to try and kill the virus if it's most likely she just had the cold sore virus on her lip and maybe never even had a breakout? I'm sorry to continue to ask questions but I really hope you can help me understand some things for my own peace of mind. Thanks Troy for all your reply's. :)

Hi Troy, sorry again for being a pest. Either way I am going to pursue this protocol because it's all I've got to go off and truth be told, you do sound genuine. And yes, what else do I have to loose and what do you really have to gain from this. So hopefully my last questions are below and I'm off to do this. This is what I'm doing so far... 

#1. I'm putting 3 x drops mixed with cold pressed organic olive oil in capsuals and having twice a day on an empty stomach. Am/pm. Is that correct?

#2. I'm also taking OLE 5000 MG containing 100 gm's oleuropein which I think is = 20%. 2 x a day for now until I get used to them.

#3. I'm applying 3 x a day mixing 3 x drops with olive oil on spine and 3 x a day under the tongue for 10 min at a time.

#4. I'm eating everything organic, mainly spinach and cauliflower as well as 1 x banana a day. I'm also smashing everyday at least 2 x bunch of coriander in salads with all organic apple cider, parsley, onion and lettuce.

I'm drinking at least 3L a day of filtered water (fluoride free).

Doing shake once a day as per below.
 . Organic coconut water
 . Spirilina
 . Wheat grass
 . Matcha tea
 . Organic natural vitamin c powder
 . Probiotic powder
 . Fresh organic coriander
 . Parsley Fresh

I'm also washing all my food in filtered water.

Sauna 4 x a week as well as walking for half hour to an hour.

I only just bought the colloidal silver at 10ppm but not sure how to take it and when to take it. Can I add it to water or my shake?

One other thing, I'm eating grass fed meat 3 x a week the size if my palm and I'm eating bacon only in the morning. Should it be nitro free?  As well as wild caught barramundi and some trevally that I catch my self.

I thank you for everything and I'm sorry about the massive message, but I've been wanting to ask there questions for a long time. :) Thank you Troy.

Comment/question on the scam accuser
by: Cj

Dear Troy, you know and others also that I have asked many questions. In fact, many of my early questions were anonymous (kind of still are with just a first name). It is of course not helpful that others are saying this is a scam or will never work. I myself was very skeptical and still have some doubt but what I do have is some hope also and have actually put trust in a perfect stranger. Although negative, it is helpful that you post the negative comments and address them. I am into my eighth month and not one day has been easy. The effort, the discipline, the control, and this change of life style for this protocol is very hard. The expense is in the thousands with the food so I have been working 2 jobs 7 days a week since March. I have not been perfect but as close as a person can get doing this. Anyway, I am hopeful it will work but I have two questions... can I have a decaf coffee once a week or once in a while or does it still have caffeine? And if I do not get a negative reading end of term does this mean I still have it and let's say I do still have it (which I won't) will the symptoms return once I stop taking everything? Also, as I said when this works I will be glad to post my test results, name and would like to thank you in person.

No you should not be vomiting. Drop down to one capsule at a time and stay with this for a week or two, then increase again. Take your time beginning this, it's not a race. :)

Let's get together!
by: Circadian

Hello again Troy,

After our last correspondence I have already started detoxing, moving slowly into a raw vegan diet (mostly fruits), and then I will start using the suggested herbs.

Also, I have a favor to ask you. In this fight I have felt very alone most of the time. On most of the discussion boards I find online people are accepting that it is incurable and this really hurts my confidence in fighting this.

On the comments section of your pages I have found many people who actually believe in the cure, and are actively fighting this. This is very important for me. Many times I found myself wanting to talk to them, ask them how they did this or that, get some positive feedback and encouragement. You can't imagine how much this would mean to me, and I believe they would feel the same.

So I wanted to suggest to you to open a Slack channel (or on any other chat board) where anyone who wants can join and talk with each other. It's anonymous and safe. It's very easy and would take only a couple of minutes to open a Slack channel, but if you don't want to spend the time I can do this for you.

I believe allowing us fighters to talk with each other would give us a huge motivational boost!

What do you think? Please say yes!!!
All the best!

Update and Question
by: Dc

Hi Troy,

Thanks for your previous advice. I have switched from raw vegan to raw food and that has helped me stay on track. I added in the colloidal silver at the beginning of last week. The rest of the protocol remains the same. I have to admit life happens. Had a few beers and a shot at a Halloween party but did not drink as much as I normally would on a night out. Some cigarettes have also slipped by. Quitting is hard but the number of cigarettes I have smoked is very limited. I had another test done last week. My initial results were 1.53 (not 1.58 as I said previously). The test from last week came back at 1.28. I was surprised at how far the number has dropped. Is this drop normal at this point? I have only been on the protocol for about a month. I expected a high number. Does this seem like I am on the right track? I don’t know much about how this virus works with the test numbers. Any advice is appreciated.

Yes, coriander (cilantro) is extremely important! If you can't get organic then go with non-organic, this will still be okay and is definitely better than nothing. Be sure to eat as much as you can physically put into your body to remove the heavy metals. Don't forget your other green food such as wheat grass powder or chlorella to detox and remove those heavy metals as well.

All the best!

I've answered a lot of questions in this thread so far, but I have to say, this is the first post that bought a tear to my eye. I feel your pain, as I'm sure everyone else who read your post does as well. What can I say... this virus sucks, no doubt about it. I'd hate to even speculate how many lives it has destroyed over the years. The silver lining is that it CAN be destroyed and eradicated from the body. I absolutely know this to be true and believe it 100% to my core. That's why I sit here and answer people's questions. Continue to do your own research, and when you're ready to start, if you decide to follow this protocol, or even a variation hereof, I'll be here to help and answer your questions. You asked if you will ever be able have unprotected sex with the man you love, even after you test negative? Why wouldn't you be able to? A negative test is a negative test. Granted, you do have a big hill to climb to get there and will need to put in some hard work and dedication to reach your goal, but you can certainly do it.

Keep your chin up and stop beating yourself up over this. The fact that you've only recently been infected does work in your favor, so there's your first positive. Get a hold of the books "The Power" and "The Magic" by Rhonda Byrne and start following the principles outlined in those books. They will change your life.

Good luck and all the best to you. :)

Everything you are doing is good. You will need to up the OLE to 4 capsules a day once you get used to them though. With the colloidal silver, take one teaspoon (5 ml's) and hold under the tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. Do this 5 times a day for the first 3 months. After this, take one teaspoon twice daily for the next 9 months. Also make sure you don't use a metal teaspoon when measuring out your dosage - the metals in the spoon react negatively with the silver particles. Use a BPA free plastic spoon or measuring cup instead. The bacon should definitely be nitrate free and not smoked. If you cant get 100% pure bacon (with no additives), don't eat it. I would also recommend the BHT too if you can, even if you start it further down the track. It really does work extremely well. Also, don't forget about the HP protocol... The One Minute Cure. It's dirt cheap to implement and also works extremely well.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Hi Cj. Firstly, even decaf coffee is not good. It's not the caffeine so much , it's the fact that coffee is acidic to the body and you want to keep your body alkaline. I recommend you drink green tea instead. Even black tea is a better alternative. In regards to your test, even if it were still positive, it doesn't mean you still have the virus. The virus can actually be long gone but your antibody count will still be there and may still even be over the limit. IgG antibodies are slow to go down, which is why a test after 12 months is still the best option. This gives your antibodies enough time to recede.

Keep up the great work.

All the best to you Cj!

Yes, I do agree that something like this would be extremely beneficial. The problem for me is that I physically do not have the time to set it up and monitor it (I'm guessing that someone has to monitor who can use it, comments, etc). I'm already working too many hours as it is. You are welcome to set up a Slack channel (never heard of this before myself) and I will definitely promote it through these pages. Like I said, I think it's a great idea.

IgG test results can fluctuate to a degree but yours definitely seems like it's on the way down. If your IgG antibodies have already peaked then yes, that number can drop fairly quickly. I recommend you don't keep getting tested though. Stick with your plan and if you really must go for another test, at least wait a further 8 months. By this time, you will know exactly what your status/count is.

Keep going. You're heading in the right direction.

All the best!

I cant seem to Figure this thing out? Please help
by: Greg

I have been on the protocol for 3 months and I am getting discouraged. I have been completely vegan, doing raw vegan for a month now. I take my oregano oil internally, I also put it on my back. I'm currently taking 4,000 mg of Vitamin C, black seed oil, 5,000 IU's Vitamin D3, 4 pills of the Olivus Olive leaf extract, as well as Bladderwrack and sea moss. I also juice one cup of cilantro a day. When I first started the process I wouldn't have any outbreaks, now every 6 days I'm having an outbreak to my face and genital area. It clears up after close to a week and then it comes back. I don't understand what I'm an doing wrong. Can you please help me???!!!!!

Hello, my husband and I plan on trying this and I was wondering if having unprotected sex with each other could effect our final results? We both are HSV2 positive so if one of us follows this more than the other, will that effect how well this works for us. Meaning, if I follow this more than he does and it is working for me, will having unprotected sex with him be counterproductive? I hope this question makes sense.

Yes, the HP can make you itchy, along with causing other detoxing (herxheimers) side effects. Read chapter 4 of the One Minute Cure book for a more detailed explanation of possible side effects and reactions. In regards to maple syrup, no you should avoid this food (even if it's classed as organic) as it's much too high in sugar. :)

I'm assuming that these readings are IgG readings? Yes, the drop in antibody levels means your viral load is being reduced. In short, you are slowly ridding your body of the virus. Apply some of the other recommended remedies/diet protocols and you'll get rid of the virus even quicker. :)

Protein source and medication query
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

I have the hsv2 virus and am desperate to try and cure it. I have read through the diet and regime and have looked at the Dos and Don'ts, but I was just wondering if it's okay to eat chicken for example as a protein source and protein shakes, even if it has to be a certain type of protein shake, as I'm into fitness and I'm struggling to see where I could get a sufficient amount of protein when undergoing this raw food diet? If not are you able to recommend any good protein sources that won't inhibit this protocol but allow me to maintain/increase my current fitness level? Apart from anything else I really can't afford to lose too much weight, hence I hope to be able to continue my active lifestyle and increase/maintain muscle mass rather than decrease. Also, I sometimes have to take ferrous sulphate (iron tablets) as my iron levels get low every now again, would this be a problem and inhibit the curing process?

Many thanks

Cilantro
by: Rhonda

Hello all. Many thanks to Troy for this site and hello to my fellow virus fighters! I keep reading how important cilantro is but I don't like cilantro. I really, *really* don't like it (except in very small amounts in salsa.) Will cilantro capsules be as effective? I'm already taking spirulina and chlorella tablets. Does cilantro have an additional benefit or is it essentially the same? Thanks!

High Frequency Wand
by: Anonymous

Thank you so much for answering my husband and wife question. I wanted to ask another. Some time ago I purchased a high frequency "lift wand". It actually really does zap pimples, kills bacteria, opens pores, etc. So the other day while I was using it, I wondered what it might do for HSV....? I know that it’s a virus and not a bacteria, but do you think it may benefit "zapping" the virus if used on the spine? I decided to Google this and low and behold I found a couple people that had the same thought, that tried it and it seemed to work. Here’s what it’s used for:

Rejuvenate dull, tired, dry skin. Improves appearance of scars, blemishes, and wrinkles.
Exclusive Nose Electrode to reduce pores and breakouts. Increases blood circulation and oxidizes the skin. Increases collagen production. Prevents acne breakouts.

Beauticians and estaticians use this product for skin issues. It’s called a "high frequency lift wand". If you have some time, maybe take a look at it and tell me if you think it could be effective to add to this regemine?

FG hydrogen peroxide
by: B

I added this to my protocol recently. I have also read a good bit of the One Minute Cure like you suggested when I asked about itching as a side effect. I’m having problems finding the exact part that would describe the side effects associated. I am really tiny, currently weighing 104 lbs and slowing dropping. I am just concerned that I might not need to go all the way to 25 drops due to my size. I’ve also been slowly increasing, doing the suggested drop increases every couple of days. Is this okay? I am currently at 11 drops 3 times a day. Please advise me on your thoughts on this! Thank you!

Testing
by: Clayton

Troy, I have read all your testing info throughout your site and just want to ask... Can I just skip all the IGG/IGM testing and go straight to the Western blot test to see if I've eradicated the virus? It's been 11 months now since contracting and I just want to get tested again. I have stuck to the protocol and haven't had an outbreak since my initial one which ended in March (2017). I figured why mess around with less reliable tests anyways? Thanks!!

Empty Stomach ?
by: Lynn

Hello again!

So I'm creating my protocol based on all the info you've been so generous to give us in the comment threads in both testimonials. My question is that OLE, Oregano, AND colloidal silver have to be taken on an empty stomach right? So that is going to be so hard to do since we have to do these more than once, and the silver 5X a day. How can we ensure their effectiveness and eat and have our smoothies? I have yet to read the One Minute Cure all the way so I don't know the instructions yet, and I'm hoping I can have this also and it doesn't interfere with the others.

Also, I do not have bad outbreaks at all. If I have anything it is very small and not often, so I don't have to worry about controlling them - does this mean I still have to take 3000 mg of Lysine?

So far I have this schedule, just a rough estimate. Somewhere in here I'll add the one-min-cure. Please let me know if I have this right or if I need to switch it around...

9 am- 2 OLE Empty stomach
10 am - Oregano oil under tongue and on spine
11 am - Colloidal silver (I read it has to be 2 hours apart?)
12 pm- Lysine and Vitamin C/Zinc with Food
2pm- Colloidal silver
4 pm - Lysine and Vitamin C/Zinc with smoothies with the antioxidant powders and chlorella)
6 pm- Colloidal Silver
8 pm -Lysine and Vitamin C/Zinc with Food
9 pm- colloidal silver (not on empty stomach?)
10 pm - Oil of Oregano
12 am- 2 OLE Empty Stomach

You are amazing and we all love you!
My Dherbs detox cleanse is coming to a close. I am feeling quite fatigued and not so energized like I thought but I'm praying it's just my body still detoxing after 20 days.

Reply to "Protein Source and Medication" Comment
by: Troy

Yes, a small to medium amount of organic chicken, along with wild caught salmon can be eaten to keep protein intake up. If you want to use a protein supplement then pea protein is the best. Just make sure it's natural and doesn't have extra additives (there is more information about this in the Q&A's above). With the iron, ferrous sulfate in tablet form is a heavy metal iron and shouldn't be taken by anyone! (You definitely don't want to be taking this while trying to detox). Go with a liquid colloidal form of iron such as this one... TJ Clark Liquid Iron if you need to take one. Remember too that chlorella and wheat grass are rich in natural (safely absorbable) iron so you may not even need to take extra iron if you're having one of these supplements (which you should be to help remove the heavy metals).

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Hi Rhonda. While spirulina and chlorella are both potent heavy metal removers and detoxifiers (and it's good that you're taking both of these), cilantro is extremely powerful also. You can NEVER have too much of all of these. In fact, the more you can have the more you detox your body and the better the results. Yes, you can certainly take the cilantro capsules if you want. Or maybe even try mixing your cilantro in a smoothie or something similar to hide the taste? You may need to chug it down but if it helps it will be worth it.

Yes the HP should be taken on an empty stomach if possible, but of course, this is not always practical. Like I said Lyn, just do the best you can. You will still benefit.

Medication and alcohol

Hi Troy,

Thank you very much for your response to my question on medication and protein source, it was very helpful and reassuring. Sorry to ask yet more questions but something I forgot to mention is that I take lamotrigine to control my epilepsy, would this be an issue? Another thing I wanted to ask is, is it possible to consume any wine during this 12 month period? And if so how much? Its not a problem if it's not possible, I only ask as I have read the instructions and noticed that it says no alcohol, but I've also read through and heard some other comments, etc, including a question on this page and got the impression that it may be possible to consume a very small amount of alcohol over this 12 month period. But I wasn't sure whether to believe it or not. I specify wine as that's the only alcohol I drink.

Hi Lynn. Funnily enough, Retin A contains BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene). This is its main ingredient. Of course, we recommend BHT for treating and curing your herpes. What's funny though is the medical profession claim that BHT is not safe, yet, because it's in a PHARMACEUTICAL cream, it's okay! BHT is a super powerful antioxidant, which is why it works so well for skin conditions such as acne (and for destroying the herpes virus). Anyway, yes, this cream is perfectly fine to use.

All the best! :)

3 year detox
by: James

Hello,
I have scanned and read a lot of the posts here. I read up on James destroy disease on YouTube 3 years ago and I have ate nothing or drank nothing but what he said to drink and eat and have been completely raw for 3 years.... greens, spinach, kale, gojiberries, watermelon, etc. No one on earth eats better than me yet I have not been able to stop the outbreaks. I have had one a month for the past 6 months and I am 3 years into this. I have lost 40lbs. I'm not giving up but I can't figure out why I can't stop the outbreaks. I only eat greens and fruits. I have no energy at all and I am hungry all the time. Anyway, if anyone has any pointers I would appreciate it. And I am seeing a lot on conflicts compared to what jamesdestroysdeseases says, like peroxide and eating meat. James says never eat meat. And colloidal silver... is this not a heavy metal? Why would you put metal into your body when you want metals out? Anyway, I typed this out fast but I don't know what to think about some of the things I have read, however, I have been completely unsuccessful at even stopping the outbreaks and I have been into this for over 3 years - a completely raw food detoxification diet. If anyone has any pointers please reply. I just found this site. Thanks... James

Hi James. I'm going to straight up front and honest with you. What you've been doing is clearly not working. That's a fact. You don't need 3 years to get rid of this thing. While you're on the right track with some things, I believe you're way off track with others. Yes, a raw food diet is important, but on its own is not enough. You MUST give your body and immune system a helping hand. This means you must take supplements. Trying to eradicate the herpes virus through diet alone is like trying to fight a raging house fire with your garden hose. Yes, it will help, but it certainly wont be enough to put the fire out. I'm assuming that if you're following James's recommendations you're at least on the oregano oil and olive leaf extract (and Matcha green tea?) With the colloidal silver, this is not actually a heavy metal - not at all (read this rebuttal for the full facts). Silver is a transition metal not a heavy metal. Colloidal silver (Sovereign Silver brand) is a powerful treatment for herpes. You should look into it more. BHT and lysine, along with high doses of vitamin C and zinc, stop breakouts (yes I know, James doesn't agree with these either). The hydrogen peroxide protocol listed in the One Minute Cure book is also extremely powerful - it works unbelievably well in fact! Are you taking chlorella or wheat grass powder to help remove the heavy metals? And in regards to your diet, if you don't eat any meat then you lose too much weight - this is a fact and it's not a good thing. We only advocate a moderate amount of organic chicken and wild caught salmon, but this is enough to keep your weight up. You're body needs protein, don't forget this. I believe the main reason you're hungry all the time and have no energy is because you're body is protein deficient. "Not consuming enough protein during the day can be a primary reason for fatigue" CNN.com.

My advice to you James is to continue doing what you're doing, but look to include some of what we recommend... Natural Herpes Cure. Like I said, after 3 years you should be completely free from this virus.

Hope this helps you James.

All the best to you!

Mortified but moving on

I am in the best relationship I've ever had. I had a cut and went to the doctors (yep, found out I have hsv2... have never had an outbreak just cuts on my V after waxing). Wanted to die at that moment and even more so when I had to tell my boyfriend with whom I own a house with. So I Googled up a storm and found this wonderful page. I had already started on zinc, B6 and vitamin C the week before and have now added the lysine a few days back - and today olive leaf extract because I now just feel itchy for most likely no reason. I am determined and know I will be hsv2 free in a couple of months. I believe this will work. Thank you.

I even read the "read before you post" thing and didn’t see it. I just want to know if it’s okay to steam some vegetables, meats, and use spices. I feel like some things you have to heat up or cook, like sweet potatoes so I’m just wondering how to go about that. I think eating raw food should still be enjoyable otherwise it might get a bit depressing (but I know nothing that’s worth it is easy). Also if I omit the colloidal silver but use some of the other heavy metal detox, is it possible to clear in the time frame listed above (approximately 6 months?) Thanks in advance!

Oregano Oil Burning
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,
Hope you're well and thank you for your help. I have recently started to take 4 drops of oregano oil in about 5oz of water twice a day. I understand that this is a sign of the power of the remedy, however, I find it very distasteful and difficult to drink as well as it burning my lips, throat and tongue. It's bearable but rather difficult. Does this mean my mixture is too strong or does everyone deal with this? At times I squeeze a bit of organic lemon into it to make it easier to drink. Does this dilute the power or is it ok?

Many thanks.

Hello, I have a question to ask. I was given an IgG test back in Feb 2017 and my test results came back positive for HSV 1 and a low positive for HSV 2 (1.9 to be exact). I have never had an outbreak and I was very sick the day I took the test. My doctor was very uncaring and said I don’t even need medication. After everything I have read it seems the test may have been a false reading. I was thinking of having a re-test in the next few months. Can you give me your opinion if I should?

Thank you
by: Erin

I have no words to give you the thanks you deserve for posting this. You have not only given hope to people suffering from this illness but a way forward. I have been vegan now for two months following the unexpected diagnosis and will be going completing raw soon. I would really love and appreciate it if you outlined a simpler step by step process. Did you apply the oregano oil inside at all or just on outside areas? Did you ever apply colloidal silver directly to the area, I have heard that helps as well?
Thank you and happy holidays
-Erin

To get rid of the virus, one of the key things you need to pay attention to is your acid/alkaline base (pH level). Some foods are acid forming and some foods are alkaline. The tricky part is finding the right ratio. While you want to be eating primarily alkaline foods, you do actually need a small amount of acid forming foods. The ration is two parts alkaline to one part acid, however, when trying to destroy the herpes virus, the acidic foods should be less. With that said, meat (red meat, chicken, fish, etc) are acidic but without a little bit of meat you will end up looking like a skeleton after your 12 months is up. Fish and chicken are less acidic than red meat (red meat is one of the highest), which is why we say to eat a small amount of these. Game meat is less acidic that red (cow) meat so this would be okay. Just remember, only a small amount! Have a read of this excellent article on acid/alkaline foods for a more thorough explanation... The Acid/Alkaline Foods List.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Here's the link to the raw food diet article... Raw Food Diet: Benefits, Risks and How to Do It.You should also have a read of this article... Acid/Alkaline Foods List as you want to be eating mostly alkaline foods (remember, only eat a small amount of meat). The colloidal silver is very powerful. I would recommend you re-consider using it. In regards to Himalayan pink rock salt, this form of "salt" does not contain heavy metals. The minerals it contains are in a free form, highly absorbable form. Pink rock salt is also alkalzing to the body. This is the best type of salt to use in your cooking and to season your meats.

Hope this helps.

Best regards! :)

3 year detox
by: James

Troy, thank you I agree totally!! Over 3 years on a raw food diet is not doing the job. I have not been taking olive leaf or colloidal silver. I have been drinking the antioxidant fruit powders that James stresses. James actually E-mailed me back today and stresses that you detox on berries, etc. After over three years and still getting outbreaks I am taking your advice and I have ordered everything you have mentioned here on this board... food grade h2o2, BHT, everything I have read on this site. I have been taking the chlorella and spirulina tablets. No one on planet earth has ever detoxed better than me and it has not done the job... just as you have said. Thank you, I will definitely post my results in time... I feel my detox is at its best. When I add the herpes killers I feel success is just around the corner!!! Good luck to all. I wish everyone the best!!!! Thank you Troy!!! James

Hi Troy,

Firstly, thank you for all your help. Secondly, I have been on the regimen for just short of a month and I intend to carry out a herbal body parasite and heavy metal cleanse. Should I continue to take the supplements during the duration? Each one is 10 days, with a week break in between each one.

Disk o gram
by: Anonymous

I am scheduled to have a disk o gram done later next month. This procedure is to determine if I would need surgery. My plan would be to hold off on the surgery for at least a year if this test comes back positive. I have been on this protocol for about 5 1/2-6 months. Is there any supplements I should cut back on prior to having this done? I will be on the downward slope of the food grade hydrogen peroxide at the time of the procedure with 8 drops 3x a day. I understand BHT and St. John’s wort are blood thinners and plan to not take these the day before (if it should be longer please let me know). I believe iodine will be injected into my disk to see if it leaks out. Do you know what the effects of iodine going directly in my spine will have on the detox? I have tried to do my own research but have been unsuccessful with finding answers.

Thank you!

I AM CURED!!!!!!!
by: Eric

First and foremost, let this post be a letter of inspiration to everyone reading it. I literally have lived on this website for the past year. I would say at least 20-30 of the above questions posted are me under random alias names (I always had fun making them up). But, I am Eric. That is my real name. I now test negative for HSV2, which I contracted 10 months ago. All of my CBC test results are normal now too. My white blood cells, monocytes, hemoglobin and others were all very low and red flagged when I was initially tested, but are now back to healthy and strong again. :) Also, as additional inspiration to all you doubters, I will not be silent and hide behind a veil. I am going to do multiple things to offer support, insight and guidance to people in this fight against herpes. My face, my full name, my past, my healing journey will ALL be fully exposed because frankly all I care about is helping people realize there is a 'cure'. Or more importantly, I want people to stop doubting what Troy and others have shed light on. I will also be publishing a book I have written over my journey (its actually a full autobiography that culminates with the final chapter being about me beating herpes - I've had a ridiculous life and no joke, curing herpes is probably the least interesting chapter, haha). My herpes healing journey took me around the world, and I spent at least $100,000 ensuring I got rid of it. You will not/do not need to expect to do that, but there are things I did that are not listed on this page that I know expedited my healing process. I will share all of that. Most importantly, I did follow everything Heather and Troy list on this page here. Thank you to both of them for offering this. I honestly do not know if I would have had as much faith that I could cure myself without the information they have provided. And without that faith, I would have gone down a very dark path that probably wouldn't have ended well. So trust yourself, trust the information, and have faith that you can heal yourself. I promise, you can! So much more to come... and thank you again Troy and Heather!!!

Not sure?
by: Cj

Dear Troy, I am somewhat stressed out, feeling down. I am not sure if I'm correct but I think I had a BO, just a tiny spot, could even be nothing as it's so small I need a magnifying lense to see it. If it is and after doing this for 8 months would it even be possible to get a negative reading at 12 months?... meaning, even if the virus was not gone and then after 9 months it was does that leave enough time for the IgG level to drop to negative? I was planning to get tested at the end of December to see where my level is at and if I've made progress. I would be extremely down if the level was the same or higher than before. My first test was back in June, which was 4.0 and at that time I am fairly sure it had been around the 6 month mark since I believe I was infected at the end of November last year. I have been on the protocol since mid March. If this was/is a BO should I be hitting the panic button? I have put so much effort, time, money and sacrifice into this.
Thank you for your insight.

You're very welcome James. I believe you're very close too because you're 100% committed, and that's the biggest battle for most people. Just keep in mind that the OLE can stir up the virus and actually cause more breakouts in the beginning (not always) - just want you to be prepared. The BHT and the hydrogen peroxide protocol will help to tame them down though so these are a bonus. Any questions or help you need you can post here.

Reply to "Disc O Gram" Comment
by: Troy

I would drop the BHT and St John's wort a week before your surgery, just to be on the safe side (although I think they would be fine to continue to take, it's better to err on the side of caution). The week off will still be okay. There isn't anything else that I can see that would cause a problem. In regards to the iodine, I don't really know to be honest. It would depend on what type of iodine they use. But if you need the surgery/disk o gram then it has to be done. Just continue to detox hard afterwards.

Hope this helps, and best of luck with the disk o gram. :)

Advice Please?
by: Anonymous

This is an amazing story! I am a 24 year old female and was just diagnosed with HSV2 two days ago and I am absolutely devastated. I'm a firm believer in defeating disease by living a healthy life. I just feel so overwhelmed by all the research that I've been doing that I don't even know where to begin. And I don't know if I'd be able to afford all of the things needed.

I was looking at what's in the shake and all of the powder seems like it would add up really quickly money-wise. How often did you have to re-stock on this kind of stuff? From what it looks like you probably went through it quickly.

And if you don't mind me asking, about how much did this regimen cost you monthly? I am willing to do anything to get rid of this stupid virus. Any advice on anything about where to begin or anything else would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Troy,

Thank you for all your help. I am having my first episode of genital herpes and it's very painful. I was infected 2 weeks ago but the symptoms started one week ago. As my doctor recommend to me I am going to take the antiviral for 7 days but I really believe in this cure so I decided to start today. For the moment I have been able to find the oil leaf, lysine, selenium, vit c and colloidal silver. I am also taking acv with hot water and raw honey morning and night. Planning to find online the origano oil and dmso cream.

Is it ok to start even if I am still taking the antiviral medication?

I have been researching and there are two herbs that apparently work very well for herpes; hypericum mysorense and hypericum hookerianum. Can I add these to the regime?

Thank you so much.

Hi Cj. Do not hit the panic button, there's no need to. Firstly, it may not be a lesion. Secondly, even if it is it doesn't matter. Remember, Heather was still getting breakouts at the 8 month mark. Hers were quite severe in fact. Sometimes what happens is the body has one last final clean out. This can cause all sorts of reactions, including flu like symptoms, skin rashes, you name it. Just stick with what you're doing and have faith. Get that test done at the end of the month to see where you're at - I think you might be pleasantly surprized. Keep that body alkalized and continue to eat lots of alkaline foods... The Acid/Alkaline Foods List. Also, read Eric's post above. He just got a negative test and is over the moon. This is going to be you soon. Believe it!

Have a great weekend Cj, and no more stressing!

Follow up on BO
by: Cj

Dear Troy, thank you for your reply and lifting me up... I was ready to quit as it was definitely a BO but tiny. It was so tiny I had to use a magnifier but there was no doubt. Very very small blisters, only a few. As I said, needed a magnifier but as I am sure others know I know my skin down there very well. It started on the Wednesday and here it is Saturday and under the magnifier I can see they are just about gone. I am disappointed and feel somewhat deflated, however, it was so small and pretty much gone in just a few days - maybe that's a good sign? I was hoping my test in a few weeks would show negative, that would be unlikely now but perhaps my number is down. I would be very bummed if it was higher than what it was back in June at 4.0. If you think I should skip it for a while please give me your thoughts. I will continue the process until the end. It was, beyond words, to read Eric's post. I hope he sticks with us to help us get to the finish line and win. As I said before, if I can win and rid myself I will gladly share my results and my name here for all to see. Still hopeful. Thanks again.

When to take Lysine?
by: Hopeful from Asia

Hi Troy,

I would appreciate some clarification on when to take Lysine. All the bottles from the manufacturers state "take on empty stomach" whilst your posts state "lysine, zinc and vitamin c should be taken with food". I'm a little confused because first I started with your advice (I haven't added zinc to my protocol yet but hope to soon), then I switched to taking Lysine on empty stomach an hour apart from the other supplements. It would be a lot easier to take with vitamin C and food, but did you state so because it had to do with the combination of lysine, vitamin C and zinc for absorbability? I just want to understand the difference so that I can take it in the right way, either with food or without food. Thank you so much!

Exercise & Portions
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

Thank you for your response and taking the time to answer questions as always. I wanted to ask how much meat and complex carbs are okay to consume per week and day? I know you said to eat these in moderation but I want to rely on eating chicken and fish for most of my protein since I need a hundred grams per day due to my tall stature. I wanted to eat eggs, but those are considered acidic and I don’t know if you can eat those every day, multiple times a day, due to cholesterol levels. I don’t want to become too skinny much like the rest of the people on here. I also know that complex carbs are important. I researched if fruits have complex carbs but they are just simple sugars. I also read the acidity/alkalinity list and it said that exercising creates acidity, primarily lactic acid. But I always thought exercising was good to boost your immune system? I was hoping to work out everyday to increase my chances of clearing the virus. I suppose I’m not sure what the amount in grams of complex carbs or proteins should be per day. Thanks again for your time.

Hi Troy,

Thanks for all your advice. I am still using the same protocol and doing raw food with some flounder and organic chicken. I have also been eating a lot of salads with hard boiled eggs (about 5 eggs a night) on the nights I do not eat meat. I had another test done last week. My initial results were 1.53, the next test which I took on Nov 3 was 1.28. The test last week was 1.09. Should I be eating the hard boiled eggs?

Also, would the fusion brand work as well? Apparently a plant named andrographis also works for the immune system. Please help I'm desperate to get rid of it!

Concerns & questions
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

Sorry for the multiple questions. I just started the oregano oil today and will be purchasing chlorella and the olive leaf extract before the year ends. Trying to gradually add on supplements. The Lysine that I have is 500 mg, so I hope that is ok. That is the only one I could find in bulk. I take it twice a day and will switch to three times a day in two weeks. I have a dilemma, however. I am in professional school that requires me to work and interact with people physically and the smell of the oregano oil is very strong and is seeping through my clothes. I tried to spray perfume over my clothes but that doesn’t mask it for long. I’m not sure what to do since I want to get the best results but I also don’t want to be self conscious around my classmates, who notice everything. I don’t want to sound ungrateful but this is a genuine concern, among others (like the taste of the oregano oil water). Is it possible for me to do the spine regimen at night and increase the number of drops so that I can shower in the morning? Or what do you suggest, if you don’t mind me asking. I’m just very afraid to do this wrong and not get the results that I want; especially since what I’m using will only include the oregano oil, Lysine, vitamin C, olive ole max, grapefruit juice, and detox shakes (with chlorella and pomegranate powder). Thank you again.

PS- how is it possible to consume 10,000 mg of vitamin c if the highest dose is 1000mg. That means you would have to take it ten times a day. Maybe I am misunderstanding.

You're at 8 months. Think about how your body was 8 months ago and what you were experiencing with this virus then compared to now. If you don't test negative at this stage, I would think you would at least be very close.

You can take lysine either with or without food. However, the reason you should take it with food is because, yes, combined with the vitamin C and zinc, you do get better absorbability with all 3 nutrients. Plus, taken with food is alot easier on the stomach, particularly if you get a bit of reflux.

Hope this helps.

Yes exercise produces lactic acid, but it also oxygenates the body, which is a good thing. Exercising 7 days a week is too much though. You must give your body a rest. Remember, exercise is good up to a point. 5 days a week is plenty. In regards to protein... chicken, fish and eggs are acidic, which is why we say only a small amount. Putting an exact figure for this is difficult though, impossible really. With complex carbs it's the same, not too much. Remember, your diet should be primarily plant based. You will lose a certain amount of weight, there's no way around this. Take a good quality pea protein powder (with no additives) for extra protein if need be.

Hope this helps.

This is the strongest Australian brand of olive leaf extract I've seen... Safe Olive Leaf Extract Super. It's a liquid version, and probably tastes awful, but 70 mg's of oleuropein per 5 ml's is super strong! 10 ml's a day of this would be perfect. With the andrographis plant, yes this does boost the immune system, but, as far as I know it's only been found to be helpful for HSV1. You would be better off putting your money towards the other supplements in my opinion. You'll get more out of them.

With the oregano oil, I would suggest that you use it on your spine at night, maybe as soon as you get home and then again before bed. On the weekends or your days off you should be able to do it morning and night. (Doing it only at night will still be okay). You list grapefruit juice as one of the things you're having? Hopefully you mean grapefruit seed extract and not grapefruit juice. You want to avoid grapefruit juice (grapefruit seed extract, however, is a potent treatment for herpes). With the vitamin C, yes it's definitely 10,000 mg's a day, which is why you need ascorbic acid powder (vitamin C) to make up this amount... Ascorbic Acid.

Hope this helps.

19.40 Igg results

Hi Troy,
I just recently got tested for hsv2 and tested positive. I started having symptoms in 2014 but thought it was a really bad yeast infection. My Igg levels are really high (19.40) and I’m wondering when I start the protocol if I should do it longer than 12 months. I just want to be sure I get the virus out.

19.40 is quite high, yes. Once you get retested at the 12 month mark you'll know for sure if you need to continue for longer. You may need to, you may not. Give the next 12 months all you've got - that's all that matters for the time being. Your IgG levels have peaked for sure so the only way for them to go from now on is down.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Chantel!

Salmon and Shrimp

Hi Troy,

If heavy metal toxicity comes from fish, is it best to avoid fish? Heather ate salmon daily in a salad for lunch. Im sure her fish was wild, but with the toxicity of our oceans these days, is wild fish even "clean" anymore? I'm scared to eat seafood 7 days a week because of this. If I completely avoid fish and just eat 2 soft boiled eggs a day, would that be enough protein for the day?

Also, are there any specific vegetables that we should avoid? Or are all vegetables ok to eat?

Thank you again for your kindness and patience!!!

Final push
by: CJ

Dear Troy, you don't have to reply to this. I thank you for your reply after my small BO, I was very discouraged and wanted to quit but your reply has made me more determined. I am doing everything I am supposed to - all supplements including chaparal per instructions on the bottle. I eat cilantro and coconut oil daily. Cannot wait until I do not have to anymore. I have started taking the OO under the tongue 3x per day and 6 tablets per day, however, I have to skip a week roughly with the oil on the back of my spine. I usually put a dab on the handle of a spoon of coconut oil and 3 drops OO, then a few minutes later I smear a light film of DMSO. It typically stings for a few minutes and then is fine - the next day a little dry skin and that's all. This time I tried to put the oil only onto a dab of DMSO and smeared it on, not realizing the stinging was actually burning. Got burnt real bad, looks like a blow torch has been on my lower back so I hope skipping a week or so won't be an issue. Not sure if I did something wrong but for me coconut oil mixed with OO before DMSO is the way to go. Again thank you. My test is December 20. I will let you know the results as I get them and I hope Eric does stick around.

by: Hopeful from Asia

Hi Troy,

Thanks so much for clarifying my question on lysine. I'm now 6 weeks into the protocol, so still slow, steady and early. It's a little scary getting full outbreaks as I was previously on Valtrex antiviral suppressive therapy so it never got to the lesion stage. Since starting this protocol, I've had bi weekly outbreaks but I understand it's part of the detox process so will persevere.

You also answered my question on dairy milk substitutes and ranked coconut milk, soy milk followed by (if can't be avoided), almond milk. I was wondering if hemp milk and quinoa milk are also good choices?

Regarding seeds, which ones are safe to consume? I bought some flax seed to add to my organic oats. I also bought soy nut butter as a substitute for almond butter but not sure which is a better/healthier choice?

Thank you so much, you are a life saver and a God send to all of us!

HSV-2
by: Anonymous

Hello,
I have a small outbreak of three to four small bumps that just sting a little bit sometimes and they’re located at the base of my vulva, a little before my anus. It seems fluid filled and sticky. I haven’t gotten tested yet but this seems to be a pretfy clear indicator that I have HSV-2 and probably HSV-1. I’m hoping that since this seems like a small outbreak that's not too bad that my HSV concentration isn’t too high and that I’ll be able to combat this in hopefully less than 8 months. I want to know when I’ll be able to have unprotected sex without the fear of passing it on to my partner. I really don’t want to tell him because we are very new to dating. I’d like to just beat this ASAP. Also, I’m a little confused as to what is effective to take to deal with this since my biggest concern is having HSV-2. I’m a pretty straightforward gal and I can handle eating like one thing a day and taking a lot of medication. If anything, I would like to see if I can have a cheat day once a week? My favorite food is pho so that’s what I’d be eating. If you could just please tell me exactly what you want me to do daily to get rid of this as soon as possible, I’ll do exactly that.

Hi Troy,

I wrote you a week ago but I can not find my comment, maybe it wasn't published.

I just got HSV2 and thankfully I found your blog. I started all the protocol that worked for Heather but I would like to add these herbs that apparently attack the virus herpes: HYPERICUM MYSORENSE AND HYPERICUM HOOKERIANUM what do you think? Can I add them to the regimen?

Thank you very much for your help!

Will it ever stop?

Do you have to continue the regimen once you're cured? I remember you said it would be helpful to at least keep taking the OLE, but what about everything else? The diet, the supplements, etc...? Thanks for your help! For the first time in months I feel hopeful,

Hi, Troy!

Is it possible to just use the supplements as a way of curing and NOT do the raw diet? I am already practically vegan, but I do eat processed foods. Will this make it so I can never be cured? Or am I still able to achieve a cure without the raw diet? Or will it eventually be cured but just take longer? Thank you in advance!

Hi Anonymous. Was the IgG test you got a type specific test? Meaning, was it just for HSV2? If it was then I would recommend you get tested for both HSV1 & 2, to be sure. With the "tingling", this can still happen. I know Jessica had this right up to the very end, then it vanished and she's never had it again (Jessica tested negative right after). How long have you actually been on the protocol for? In regards to "going back to eating what you like", you can certainly do this, however, hopefully you've learned at bit about health and nutrition since being on this protocol. While enjoying a "treat" every now and then is certainly okay, eating healthy should now be a habit for you and (hopefully) ingrained in your brain. I also recommend continuing with a green food supplement (chlorella or wheat grass powder), along with probiotics, fish/krill oil and the OLE just for overall health. These are what I take every day (and have been doing so for the last 20 years) and people are amazed at how I can work exceedingly long hours, go to the gym and exercise 5-6 times a week, and still have loads of energy to boot! (I'm about to turn the big "50" too by the way). Like I said, hopefully you've learned something and want to continue on the healthy road you've been on - albeit on a less strict regimen of course. I agree though that once you get that negative test, it's definitely time to live a little!

Hope this helps you out.

All the best!

You do need to be very careful when it comes to eating fish. Wild caught salmon is okay, just check your sources carefully. Eating eggs instead is okay. In regards to which vegetables to eat and not eat (all foods in fact), follow the guidelines outlined in this article and try to eat mostly the alkaline foods in the first list...

You tested negative for HSV2 (after being positive) and had an IgG drop of 4.64 for HSV1 after only one month? Man, you should be jumping for joy!! Most HSV sufferers would kill for a result like that! The reason you're probably still getting outbreaks is because of the HSV1 that's still in your system (but on the way out obviously). Continue with what you're doing but add the BHT & St John's Wort, which are both excellent for reducing outbreaks, and even use the DMSO topically on any lesions for extra fast healing and relief. It's only a matter of time before the outbreaks are gone and you test negative for HSV1.

All the best!

Yes, I missed adding quinoa and hemp milk to the list. Both are very good. In regards to seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, hemp and chia seeds are all okay. Nut butter ( I do prefer almond butter) is also fine as long as you're only using a small amount. :)

I recommend you get tested first so you know EXACTLY what you're dealing with and up against, rather than simply guessing. Once you do this (and once your tests reveal exactly what you have/are dealing with), you can then start to look at a plan of action.

Hope this helps.

Strange symptoms appearing!
by: Hopeful from Asia

Hi Troy,

It's me again. This week has been especially tough on the protocol. A couple of strange observations I would like your opinion and advice on please. I'm shy of two months into the protocol and at the beginning, the skin below the base of my spine started to dry up and crack slightly, probably from the burning of the oregano oil. However, I persisted and never missed my 2x/day application.

1) This week however, I noticed a cluster of small bumps (maybe 6-7 red dots) at that base of my spine that look like they could be a rash but they're not itchy nor do they burn or hurt. They're just there. No tingling, no pain either. And about 4 inches above the base is also a couple of red dots (again no pain, itch or burn).

2) I persisted with the oregano oil application ignoring these symptoms, but it's been five days. Additionally, on my mouth, I noticed that my upper lips seemed a little dry, burnt and peeled. I applied lip balm, and once that healed when the skin flaked off, a small similar red/burnt looking patch appeared on the left corner of my upper lips on my mouth. It's been a few days and that's now starting to peel too. I may have burnt my lips drinking the oregano oil with water but why is this happening now when it used to burn my lips in the first few weeks of the protocol but there were no visible symptoms until now two months in? Could this be oral sores? But I don't see any blisters.

I haven't tested for HSV1 or HSV2 but I know I have genital herpes because of an outbreak 3 years ago and I was on valtrex until I found your website. All the lesions have been appearing on my bum and thereabouts. Could I have spread it from below to above?

3) And finally, this is really strange. After dinner two days ago, I felt some pain below my tongue in the soft tissue area of my sublingual glands. When I checked in the mirror, I saw open sores! I almost died! I was so freaked out and almost cried. I wasn't sure if it was canker sores or oral sores and have been researching on difference between both. I still continued with the protocol despite the pain of oregano/coconut oil under the tongue, etc. Basically, despite all the strange symptoms of above, I haven't stopped the protocol. It's now day 3 of the "canker" sores but could this be HSV1?

I'm so afraid because all this is happening this week and so far I've managed to hide HSV2 since it's under my clothing but I'm afraid if it's HSV1 that it will be visible when I'm back at work.

By the way, I'm on OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver, Vit C, Lysine, and Zinc. I really can't fit in anything else without losing focus so I'm hoping this will get me through like Heather and Jessica.

Is my body reacting to oregano oil, is that possible? Or are these symptoms of the virus being drawn out? I'm feeling so scared and almost in tears right now. Please help. Thank you so much Troy.

Raw food diet
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

I have been following the protocol for just over a month but have slipped up a couple times. I have have smoked pot 3 times and derailed from the diet a few times also. I am getting back on track but I am having doubts about whether what I am doing is enough.

I am currently undergoing a parasite, full body and heavy metal cleanse. I take the oregano oil & OLE as instructed. I take the colloidal silver only twice a day as I am unsure as to whether my brand is the real deal... they claim 14ppm, though I am unsure of the nm size... Silver-Tec-Premium-Quality-Colloidal-Silver.

My diet consists of organic food unless stated otherwise:

Breakfast: Smoothie containing pomegranate, lemon, banana, oats, chlorella powder, acai powder & pomegranate powder.
OR porridge oats & fruit. Only my pomegranate is unfortunately inorganic as I cannot find any organic but I opted for it because of its healing properties. I've also heard that thick skinned fruits have little pesticide/insecticide content? Would it be best to cut these out?

Lunch: Chickpea soup/ kidney bean curry & cilantro heavy salad. Again only my cilantro is inorganic as I cannot find any organic.

Dinner: Chickpea soup/quinoa/ kidney bean curry & cilantro heavy salad/steamed kale. Again only my cilantro is inorganic as I cannot find any organic.

Salad contents: Cucumber, tomato, avocado, onion, garlic, cilantro, cos lettuce, sometimes: kidney beans & lentils.

I also drink matcha green tea.

My fear is that in avoiding inorganic produce, I have limited my diet and so am not getting the necessary nutrients.

Lastly, I previously had a swab test. Would it be worth getting a blood test to find out my starting antibody count or should I simply proceed and be tested in the future?

Many thanks & kind regards.

My experience with Hydrogen Peroxide - it works!
by: Anonymous

Hello,

I just wanted to share with everyone that I have been following this protocol for the past 2 months. I was diagnosed with HSV-2 about one year ago and have been suffering from constant outbreaks since then (at least 1-3 OB per month). Since starting the protocol (OLE, oil of oregano, vitamin C, colloidal silver, antioxidant shakes, chlorella, and plant based diet... these are the supplements that I am most comfortable with taking), my outbreaks increased in frequency and occured back to back. Having frequent outbreaks is not easy but I continue to push through with following the protocol.

I have been on the fence about adding food grade HP to my protocol for several weeks now. When I read Troy's comment about HP working for someone who was having recurrent outbreaks, I decided to give it a try (after doing my own thorough research). I have been on the HP protocol for 6 days and I have already experienced its effectiveness. When I started using the HP, I was recovering from an outbreak and so I expected that another outbreak would soon come. About 2 days later I started having symptoms of itchiness where my outbreaks usually occur. I applied diluted HP on the area and continued with my protocol. The next morning, I expected that the outbreak would have progressed to its full state but to my surprise the outbreak had resolved... in less than 24 hours! I still had some mild itching here and there but no where near the discomfort of having painful sores. I haven't had outbreak relief in such a short period of time since adding the HP and I have tried everything from ACV, essential oils, manuka honey, etc (which are all good products). I think the combination of drinking the HP and applying it to the outbreak was really effective. If I had not added HP to my regimen, I know for a fact that it would've taken at least 5 days for the outbreak to resolve. I am happy that I've added the HP and plan to take it as directed for the total duration of this protocol.

I wanted to provide this testimonial for anyone who is on the fence about adding HP to their protocol. I can only speak of my experience and how my body has reacted to it thus far... which has been positive.

I look forward to that negative test in 10 months. Please everyone, although it sucks to have herpes, don't forget to live your life and do the things that make you happy!!!!

I hope this was helpful!

Hello Troy!

Today is my 4th day into this process and I’m very excited about this new journey. In the morning the first thing I take is warm water appropriately 6-8oz with 2 spoons of organic apple cider vinegar and a spoon full of honey. Then I take supplements such as 2 lysine, 3 vitamin C, 2 Olivus OLE, mega B vitamin, followed by colloidal silver under the tongue. 10 mins after I make my antioxidant shake (all ingredients Heather listed). Then I take 6-8 oz of filtered water with 3 drops of oregano oil. I also rub the oil on my back with the coconut oil. Is this ok to start in the morning? Plus per day I'm taking 3 lysine, 5 vitamin C, 4 Olivus OLE, 2 times the step with the oregano oil and 5x with the Colloidal silver. Please let me know if I’m doing everything as I should be. Thanks

Sodium and seaweed snacks
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

My raw diet provides very little sodium, not nearly enough of the daily requirement. Low sodium causes leg cramps, (which I'm starting to experience).

1) What are some good ways to get sodium into this diet?

2) Is organic packaged sauerkraut an ok way to get sodium?

3) Are organic seaweed snacks from the brand "SeaWeed Snax" ok to eat on a daily basis? This has both iodine and sodium. I noticed Heather had seaweed twice a day.

Thank you so much for your help.

Firstly, you should drop the oregano oil on the base of the spine to every second or even third day and apply a moisturizer until it heals. The skin can dry out if you're not careful. In regards to under your tongue, once again, give the oregano oil a break until the sores heal. I would strongly recommend you take chlorella or wheat grass powder and a probiotic and look at using the hydrogen peroxide protocol to get your body alkaline (along with following these tips... The Acid/Alkaline Foods List) - these will help with a lot of your problems. Are you doing the detox drinks like Heather and Jessica as well?

Hope this helps.

All the best. :)

The colloidal silver you list looks okay. I must admit, I'm fond of Sovereign Silvers colloidal silver. It just works so well and you can take high doses of it safely. You can buy it on Amazons UK site also. I notice you aren't doing the hydrogen peroxide protocol. You really should include this, and it's so cheap to implement. With the non-organic produce, this is fine. Just do the best you can with what you have access to. It will still work. I would recommend you get an IgG test if you can to see what your count is. This would be handy for own sake. You don't need to of course and can wait until you finish the protocol.

Hope this helps.

Stay with it.

All the best! :)

Glad the HP is helping. Hope everyone who reads this decides to take your advice. The hydrogen peroxide is just so important and works extremely well. And it's so cheap! Your other advice at the end is also very fitting. Yes, even though you have herpes, you must still get on with your life and enjoy it. Especially now that you know you don't have to be stuck with this virus forever!

Thanks for your post.

Hi Jesse. What you're doing is good, just keep the olive leaf extract and colloidal silver separate from the others when you take these - so completely on their own. Also look to include the hydrogen peroxide protocol as outlined in the One Minute Cure book. You really need this - it's very powerful. Don't forget to eat lots of alkaline foods too from this list... The Acid/Alkaline Foods List.

All the best! :)

Reply to "Sodium and Seaweed Snacks" Comment
by: Troy

These snacks are okay if need be, just don't go overboard with them. Sauerkraut is good for you too but make your own rather than buy the packaged varieties (it's easy to make - all you need is cabbage and Himalayan pink rock salt). For extra sodium, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of filtered water and drink. Baking soda is high in sodium, and it alkalizes the body (like HP does), which is a good thing and will help you also. Now, low sodium is a cause of leg cramps but it's not actually the main cause, a magnesium and potassium deficiency is. Get extra magnesium into you (magnesium citrate), along with organic ACV for the potassium. The ACV will also help with the eradication of the virus.

Canned pink or red Alaskan salmon is also okay. Read this article first before you buy any canned fish though... 4 Canned Fish You Should Avoid At All Costs.

Coconut Oil & Oregano
by: Bummed Out Gal

Hey Troy & Everyone!

I'm 10 days into this change of lifestyle and raw food/supplement plan, after a suspicion that I was infected just over a month ago with HSV-2. Too soon for the IgG test to be reliable so I will test at the 3 month mark to be certain, though my physical symptoms are all text book HSV-2.

QUESTION: After letting the coconut oil & oregano oil sit under my tongue for 10 min, am I supposed to swallow it or spit it out?

I've done coconut oil pulling where you swish it around for 10 min then spit it out, so just wanted to be sure!

Thanks & Merry Xmas!

Hi Troy, after finding out my IgG level this morning and being distraught all day, I thought when and if you reply you may be able to help. Sorry to write twice in a day but so discouraged after 9 months on this... the time, effort, money has been overwhelming. I don't want to quit but I am having a hard time now seeing the finish line. Is it possible the reading was wrong? It is the same testing facility from my June test. I wanted to list what I have been doing since March, maybe I've done something wrong ?

6am. 5 drops peroxide
630am. Olive leaf and silver nader under tongue
7am. Shot of ACV
730am. Oregano oil in water and on back of spine. Organic tea with lemon
8am. BHT, 2 tablespoons coconut oil
830am. Banana and chapparal
9am. Apple and 3000mg vit C. Shot of ACV
930am. OO under tongue
10am. Milk thistle. 2 teaspoons coconut oil
11am. Peroxide
12pm. Fruit salad/apple, banana 3000 vit c
130pm. 5 pills spirulina
230pm. Milk thistle, 2 teaspoons coconut oil
330pm. Peroxide
5pm. Oregano oil in water
530pm. Olive leaf
6pm. 4 or 5 chlorella tablets
630pm. A good chunk of cilantro
7pm. Dinner - Kale or spinach, onions, tomatoes carrots, cucumbers, ACV, 2 eggs, probiotic, zinc, one lysine. Glass of water with wheat grass powder
730pm. 3000 mg's vit c
8pm. BHT, 2 tablespoons coconut oil
9pm. OO under tongue
10pm. Silver under tongue, OO oil on back with DMSO,, magnesium citrate, vit d3
Water only except one beer a week

I have been doing this since mid March, the silver and BHT I dropped to twice per day according to protocol, also doing OO under tongue and olive leaf 3x per day for a month. Most of food is 80% organic (winter time). I eat chicken and salmon organic 2x per month. Eat out once per week, baked haddock with salad and mixed vegetables and one beer. That has been my routine for 9 months. You don't have to post. I just wanted to pass on so maybe you could help me. I am sorry to ask... I just don't know what to do and how others have such low numbers and are getting negative results. Thank you Troy.

Reply to Cj
by: Troy

Hi Cj. Sorry for the late reply, took a bit of a break over Christmas. Ok, lets start with your test result. Firstly, the small breakout you had a few weeks ago could certainly up your IgG count. In fact, this was highly likely the reason why this occurred. The problem with any test that tests for viral antibodies (your bodies immune reaction) rather than direct detection of the virus (which there isn't a test for herpes) is that if you happen to get a breakout, even a minor breakout (which also happens frequently as the virus makes one last ditch effort to survive), your antibody count will go through the roof. Your immune response goes to work and hits the infection with all its got, which is why your antibody level rises. Remember, and I keep saying this a lot, Heather, and Jessica as well, continued to get outbreaks even up to the 8 month mark. Would their antibody count have been high when they got these breakouts? You bet! Any type of infection in the body increases the antibody count. That's how the human body works. The good news is even though your antibody count rises dramatically, it also falls very quickly as well.

Nothing has changed for you Cj. You are still on track. 3-4 months (the time you have left) is still more than enough. Think about the breakouts you were getting around this time last year compared to the one you just had. I'm willing to bet there's a big difference. Yes, it's hard to keep going when you feel things aren't going your way, but like I said, nothing has changed for you. You will still get that negative result - I know it in my heart.

With what you're currently doing/your protocol, make sure you take St John's Wort with your BHT for absorbability - that's really important. If you're taking the Olivus OLE (hopefully you are), you should still be up around 4-6 capsules daily. Remember, plenty of alkaline foods too, particularly cilantro (eat as much as you can stomach), along with your chlorella and sprirulina, and H2O2 of course.

Stay the course Cj and keep the faith. 2018 is going to be your year.

All the best to you!

Wild caught salmon is okay to eat. A small amount of rice is also okay. No chapati though. It's made from wheat, a hybrid grain that you must avoid. The oregano and coconut oil is only used externally on the base of the spine, not the genitals. Use a 3% dilution/solution of hydrogen peroxide (make sure it's this amount or it can burn) on any breakouts or lesions on or around the genitals. :)

Hi Troy,

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas holiday. I have posted questions two or three times now and for whatever reason they have not been approved. I was hoping that in the season of giving, you would have uploaded my comments/questions and provided some clarification. I know you recognize my IP address and perhaps you are upset about the last question I asked about organic grapefruit juice. My intentions were not to discredit you, but rather to understand. As a medical student, it’s in my nature to ask multiple questions. After all, what kind of doctor would I become if I wasn’t inquisitive. I was hoping that once I beat this virus, I could really change the field of Medicine, especially in the US. I know now that I only have God to help me in this journey, since you no longer wish to answer me despite finding the time to answer others.

by: Cj

Troy, thank you for your reply. I was very discouraged, depressed after so much effort, struggle, time, money etc. What you say makes sense... yes my small BO was at the end of November start of December and my test was on the 15th. My ozone Dr said the same thing, that my immune system was in high gear. I have been taking the St. John's wort too, just forgot to list it and I eat half plate of cilantro almost every night. I have not veered the course even after hearing my test result, although I did eat some things at Christmas I shouldn't have; roast beef, potatoes and two tools and ice cream. It was so good but I felt bad after and went right back to the diet. I knew you would reply as always and I appreciate it as always. I will continue until the end of March and re test then. I was thinking about going back up to 75 drops per day of the h2o2. Not sure if this would be helpful? It almost seems like every 10 weeks I have one small BO but back in September it was just a red spot but it was gone in 12 hours, so hopefully this last one a few weeks ago might be the last. Thanks again and hope you had a good holiday. I will keep watching the questions in support of others on here.

Hi Troy,
First let me say thank goodness for you and people like you who educate for free and are dedicated to bettering people's lives. I was just recently infected with hsv-2. I immediately showed symptoms of an outbreak, and received my diagnosis the morning of 12/26. I have been devastated since. I couldn't eat, sleep, think of anything other than the fact that I now have this gross invader in my body that can do whatever it wants to me whenever it wants. The past 2 days I have decided to use the strength I know that I have and focus on beating this, rather than dwelling in the sadness of having contracted it. Coming across this story, this page, has helped my morale more than I could even begin to describe. I have always known how amazing the human body is, it loves us and wants to be good to us, we just need to give it the right tools to do so. I am healing of my first outbreak, finishing up about 6 more Valtrex pills then switching to taking 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil per day, as well as a Monolaurin supplement. I have to still watch your recommended videos, as well as do a lot more research regarding a raw food diet and develop a solid plan before embarking on this journey, as I want to do it the right way and absolutely rid my body of this virus. Now for just a couple questions....

Concerning your knowledge of hsv, the fact that I was exposed, showed symptoms so quickly, and had what appears to be a fairly mild first outbreak that is already going away, do you think that this may mean I have a fairly mild strain of the virus and will hopefully be easy to beat?

Are there any other success stories of following this protocol that I could read while starting it? Heather lays out her story so perfectly, I would love to read anymore like it. It provides a lot of motivation and keeps my mind in the right place, which I believe will be critical during this fight.

I know this is an odd request, but I would really like to know if there is anyone else that is planning to soon begin this protocol to cure themselves of the virus. I would find it exceptionally helpful to have a 'buddy' so to speak. I have not told anyone of my diagnosis other than my mother. It would be nice to have someone else on my side going through this journey. Would you be able to connect me with someone? Or perhaps someone here sees this and feels the same.

Sorry for the long post, again thank you so much for doing what you do and I cannot wait to hear from you.

All the best,
Jessica

Unfortunately, because of the huge number of questions that now get posted every week (and these are continuing to grow at a rapid rate), I simply cannot get to everyone so I have to cull what comes in. The other problem I have is that I spend much of my time essentially answering the same questions. I'm only one person.

I just got tested and my IgG for Herpes 2 came out positive 36,20 (says negative under 20, indeterminate between 20-25 and positive more than 25). I guess my levels are not so high but I contracted the virus a month and a half ago so maybe they are still increasing...

I am a bit confused because I also tested positive (IgG) results for Epstein Barr, Varicella... Infections I had as a child, the antibodies of those virus are still very high 25 years later... The doctor told me the antibodies last forever in the body, so how is it possible to test negative for herpes on an IgG test after this protocol? Is the absence of OB's the only way to know you killed the virus? Nobody seems to have a clear explanation for this.

Looking forward for your answer.

HPV

Would this protocol be effective against HPV as well? There seems to be quite a bit of overlap in the natural remedies recommended for HPV and HSV. Researching oregano oil is what actually brought me to this site.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jessica. You are going through what virtually every person who first finds out they have herpes goes through. Thankfully, you wont be stuck with it for the rest of your life (as per the crazy medical belief). As far as knowing how badly you have been infected and how quickly you can cure this (this is one of the most frequently asked questions too by the way), it's impossible to say. And unfortunately, there is no real way to tell. Even an IgG test wont give the answer as your antibodies take months to peak. I recommend you focus on what you need to do to beat this rather than how long it will take. Do everything right and you will absolutely 100% beat this. You can also read Jessica's story on how she got that negative test here... How I Successfully Treated & Cured My Herpes by Jessica (New Zealand). Eric also recently tested negative (see his post above) and he's planning to help in big way this year once he resettles (he lost everything in the hurricane last year). Eric is planning to start a support group for herpes sufferers as well, which will be terrific. We will let you know as soon as he has it up and running.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Jessica! :)

Yes, knowing what your pH level is every day is crucial. If it's low then consume more green foods such as wheat grass or chlorella (the best), follow the hydrogen peroxide protocol, and even add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water every third day and drink to increase your pH if need be. I use the saliva testing strips myself. Just remember, first thing in the morning before you eat or drink anything is the optimum time to test your pH. :)

I've brushed on this briefly in other Q&A's. Yes the antibodies remain in your body forever (for your immune systems future reference), however, your IgG levels will still drop to below 1.0 (negative reading). As I said, a small (minute) amount of antibodies will remain for future reference but the virus, including epstein barr, will be dead and buried.

Hey Troy

Thanks for responding to my comment on the OLE brands in Australia. I have been taking a lot of OLE (tincture and tablets) and have started taking Oregano oil (internally). I have also started taking some chlorophyll pills which I have heard helps.

Lately though my body just seems to be a bit tired and I've heard this is the body's way of recovering. I have been drinking a lot of water and am trying to get into eating more fruits and vegetables and salads etc, but I want to know if there is a way I can be a bit more active?

Bottled water and holidays
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,
I currently have the hsv2 virus and am planning to start this diet and regime in about a months time. I read that one should not drink tap water and should drink filtered water instead, but I was wondering if bottled spring water is okay? If not can I use tap water and buy a filter? Also over the summer period I'll be going on 2 separate holidays but they're back to back so I'll be away for a total of 4 weeks in a row. I fully intend to stick with the olive leaf extract, colloidal silver, oregano oil, etc, routine, and eat fruits, etc, however I expect that I won't be able to fully follow the strict diet required for this process. I won't be consuming any alcohol though. I mention this as I'm eager to find out how much of a set back this 4 week period will be? And also to see how much of an extension I should add on to the time I spend on this diet/protocol as a result of this 4 week period.
Look forward to hearing your response.
Many thanks.

You're suffering from herxheimers reaction (detoxing effects). Unfortunately, this can go on for a while, particularly if you weren't healthy to begin with or weren't already following a healthy lifestyle. I recommend a probiotic supplement and eating plenty of probiotic rich foods. Get your gut healthy, which will also help to filter and remove the toxins in your body. Start on the hydrogen peroxide protocol from the The One Minute Cure book. This will also make a big difference.

Hope this helps.

MMS can easily be incorporated into this protocol. While I haven't personally heard from anyone who has used MMS, there seems to be plenty of people lauding its effects on their herpes. Just make sure you follow Jim Humbles protocol to-the-letter... The Jim Humble MMS Protocols and don't use the hydrogen peroxide with the MMS protocol, only use one of these at a time. You will also need to drop the colloidal silver while taking the MMS as this can interfere with its absorption.

Do not drink bottled water. The only safe water to drink is water that you've filtered yourself (then you know it's healthy). Have a read of this article on the best water filtration systems by Dr Mercola... The Most Dangerous Types of Water You Can Drink. Even though it's a bit of a sales type page, it still contains some handy info. In regards to going on holidays, just do the best you can while you're away. It may add an extra month to your time frame (it may not though - impossible to say or predict). Just get back fully to what you were doing when you left as soon as you return and you'll be fine.

All the best! :)

Once your IgG level is below 1.0 you no longer have the virus, so you cannot infect another person - it's impossible. This is one of the most difficult things for herpes sufferers to accept, primarily because of the medical belief (and subsequent propaganda and brain washing of patients) that once you have the herpes virus you have it for life. Do not fall for this. :)

Heather detoxed (did a gut/colon cleanse) before she started. Doing a colon cleanse during this protocol is not recommended as, yes, you will basically be throwing (pooping) your supplements down the drain. If you've started on the protocol already, don't worry about a cleanse, continue on. If you haven't started and want to do a cleanse/detox before commencing then by all means do this. Remember, it's best to start taking your supplements (OLE, oregano oil, etc) AFTER you finish your cleanse (most are a 21 day cleanse).

Hope this helps.

Water Pitcher

Hi Troy,

I am one month into the protocol. So far so good.

I just read your response about water. I have bottled spring water. Would it be ok to filter my bottled spring water in a water filter pitcher?

Just want to also caution others to make sure their wheat grass powder comes from a source that does heavy metal testing to ensure it has no lead contamination and that their matcha green tea powder comes from clean regions in Japan instead of China (which may have heavy metals). I made both of these mistakes at first, so I'm just trying to help others. :)

Also just want to wish you a Happy New Year. Thank you so much for all you do.

MSM is a terrific supplement. I take it myself (and have been for years) to help with sore joints - so by all means include it in your daily regimen. A plant based iron supplement is also a good choice but I'm not big on synthetic multivitamin supplements to be honest. Better to get your nutrients from natural plant sources such as chlorella, wheat grass, or plant based colloidal minerals.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Lynn, and happy new year too! :)

Yes, this would actually be a good idea. And yes, you do need to be very careful and check where your wheatgrass and matcha (or any supplements for that matter) come from. Chlorella and spirulina should also be tested, so check your sources carefully with these as well. It's unfortunate that supplement companies can still get away with selling rubbish. They can get their supply from China (which is cheap and nasty) then package it up and sell for a big profit.

Thanks for the reminder and heads up. :)

12 months
by: Matt

Troy,

First off, thank you for everything. I'm now entering the 12 month mark and I'm definitely still having symptoms. A single blister every other month or so, with a slight tingling from day to day... although this has lessened as time goes on. When I first began the protocol, I made a few mistakes as far as diet goes; drinking black tea, eating raw nuts, using a collagen supplement. Also, over the past year, I've partook in alcohol about 5 times in excess. With that said, I've literally been clean eating 365 of those days and have missed the protocol for about 10 of those days.

If possible to assess, how far do you imagine this has set my progress back? And how much further until I should get an IgG test? Just to reassure you, I am not detoured in the slightest and am going to see this out until the end.

Thanks again.

Hi Matt. Very difficult to say how far your progress has been set back, or even if it has been set back. I recommend you still go for an IgG test (make sure you ask for a "type specific" IgG test) after 12 months to see where your at and what your viral count/load is. This way you'll know for sure. You've got the right attitude too. Sticking it out until you get that negative result is definitely what you need to do. It's only a matter of time!

All the best! :)

Reply to "Supplement Question" Comment
by: Troy

If you're not getting breakouts then, yes, you can skip the lysine if you want. Don't skip the vitamin C and zinc though, you need these to build up your immune system. If the colloidal silver is causing problems then either go low on the dosage and slowly build it up or leave it out for the time being and try it again further down the track. If your immune response is significantly low or you have a high level of pathogens/toxins in your body then this would likely be what's causing the problem, not the colloidal silver as such. Starting off on even five or ten ml's a day would be okay. Maybe try this amount first and see how your body reacts?

Hope this helps.

All the best!

We as humans are creatures of habit. No one likes it when their boat is rocked. When you haven't done something before ever in your daily life and then, all of a sudden, you have to make drastic changes, it's hard... only until it's not. By that I mean, once this becomes a habit for you and ingrained in your brain, it will become easy (or at least easier). I've been taking lots of supplements, herbs , spices, you name it, for over 20 years now. When I go out, even to a barbecue or a friends place, I take the supplements I need with me. A friend of mine who competes in fitness competitions (he recently won the INBA world title) takes his Eskie with him wherever he goes with all his prep foods and supplements - it's nothing for him. My point is, you get used to it. Remember too, it's not forever. 12 months goes by very quickly.

I notice Heather did not hold the oil under her tongue. She only mentions drinking it. She also drank the colloidal silver in water without holding it under her tongue.

Don't know if this is good or bad but never had it before. Also wanted to ask how to take baking soda. Morning or night with food or without. I can't find anything solid online. I am heading into my final 2 months of this, doing everything I am supposed to including 6 olive leaf and oregano oil under the tongue 3x per day and 50-60 drops of peroxide with all the others I am supposed to. If you have any advice or suggestions I would appreciate them. After reading Matts post I am worried. I also have only missed 2 days while on this, drank once in excess and maybe had some food I shouldn't a couple times. Still hopeful and trying to keep the faith. I will hit it as hard as possible. I was considering ozone for 8 weeks but I'm not quite ready for that. Thank you

HSV1- genital
by: Overwhelmed

I was diagnosed with HSV1-genital a little over two years ago now. All feels like a blur as I went into hiding and tried to forget the miserable pain mentally & emotionally. Physically I’ve had only about 3 breakouts. (I use the Valtrex they give me ONLY when having one).

My initial breakout my OBGYN said was one of the worst she’s seen. Ugh. She said I had come in contact with the virus within a week. Seeing as my ex was my partner for two years, I was living with him and raising his son... I was completely loyal to him. Never cheated... found evidence he was though. Was tested & told I had HSV-1 genital which is so hard to clarify how to fix it because there is information for type 1 & 2 but not a lot of info on HSV1- gen. Help please!

Anyways... will this process you’re talking about work for me too? So confused & don’t know what to believe anymore. Wasted thousands of dollars on holistic Dr's appointments and they say there's no healing. I believe there is! I just don’t know how to find the right one for me. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! I do lead a relatively healthy lifestyle currently... Fluoride free toothpaste, organic & free of all unhealthy additives, shampoo, conditioner, body lotions, face care. I take Standard process vitamins and young living oils. Eat as clean as I can.

P.S. I've also have had Ulcerative Colitis for the past 6 years. Now sure if this cleanse will help or hurt. The colitis is no joke and I’m really hesitant on doing cleanses. I just got out of a TWO month flare up.

Again. Ty for any answers your have.

Once you test positive for the virus there is no benefit whatsoever by continually testing yourself.

Yes, you can stop with the zinc if you wish, however, one month of taking a zinc supplement would not cause an imbalance (if you're taking zinc chelate or colloidal zinc then this would be impossible as the body uses what it needs and safely discards the rest)). Simply take some colloidal copper to get your copper levels back up (your low copper level is actually causing the imbalance, not the zinc supplement). Cell food oxygen drops are also very good. I definitely recommend this if you can get it.

Hi Cj. Not sure about the "tingle" you speak of or what it may be to be honest. With the baking soda, you take it on an empty stomach 10 minutes before food 3 days per week. Only half a teaspoon or less or you could end up with diarrhea. Test your pH level first. If you're using the HP and taking a green food such as chlorella or wheat grass powder, your pH may already be high enough. In regards to the ozone therapy, it's definitely worth considering if you can. A guy (Zman) recently commented on the ozone therapy and how he's successfully using it in our "Natural Remedies for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia" comments section. It's worth the read.

The second thing I wanted to mention is that I've been reading the article you listed on reliable and unreliable tests. Seeing as I'm in the UK I won't be able to get the Western blot test so I wanted to see if the IgG blood test would be my best bet? I know the article mentions that it's not totally reliable but I'm not sure what other tests would be available.

Thank you.

3% or 12% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
by: Hopeful from Asia

Dear Troy, it's been impossible for me to get any company to ship the 35% Food Grade HP to my city. However, I did find a website, Bobby's Healthy Shop, based in the UK that sells 3% and 12% Food Grade HP. I understand that HP needs to be 3% to apply topically when we get an outbreak at any stage. However I'm less clear on how to ingest this internally. In reference to the dilution table in The One Minute Cure, is that based on 35% food grade HP? Do I need to dilute it further if I buy the 3% HP? If so, do I follow the table? I'm just confused whether the table is for 35% or 3% HP. Thank you for clarifying. I'm finally adding HP to my protocol. It's been impossible before because no one shipped to my city.

Hello Troy,

Thank you for all of your support and the time you spend to answer so many questions! You are truly AMAZING! I know you're hesitant to post email addresses but please consider posting mine: ljheathy18@gmail.com. It is wonderful reading the comments and I know I'm not alone in this but it would be nice to converse directly with others so that we can support and encourage one another. Thank you in advance!

It doesn't matter whether you have HSV2, HSV1, HSV1 genital, shingles, or any of the other strains of herpes viruses, the process is still EXACTLY the same. Detox and cleanse and remove all heavy metals, that's the basics. So nothing changes for you. You still follow the protocol the same as everyone else. Because you're suffering from ulcerative colitis, I would recommend you first start by reading this handy article... Ulcerative Colitis Diet: Foods, Supplements & Natural Remedies that Heal. The big two recommendations for reversing UC are lots and lots of probiotics (supplemental form and making/consuming your own probiotic rich foods), along with lots of high grade organic turmeric (with black pepper and organic virgin coconut oil for absorption). By the time you finish this protocol you will actually be cured of your ulcerative colitis as well as your HSV1 - it will get rid of both. Ulcerative colitis is made worse when you have a virus such as the herpes virus in your body. Did your UC become worse when you contracted HSV1? This is usually the case.

Start off slow with this protocol and you'll be fine. Remember, it's not a race.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you! :)

You can use them as often as you like. The most effective way is to use them for a few weeks, then have a rest for a week or so, then begin again, and so forth. :)

Reply to "Breast Implants and Silver Fillings" Comment
by: Troy

I have to be honest with you about this. Breast implants are toxic, particularly silicone implants. The evidence is clear on this one unfortunately. Amalgam fillings are also not good. Whether you have them removed or not would be a personal choice of course due to the cost, time, etc. :)

HP on it's own is okay. Professional hair dyes add ammonia and other chemicals, which are not good. You could do it yourself if you're careful, which would be the best option. This article is quite helpful... How to Dye Your Hair With Hydrogen Peroxide.

Good luck!

Olivus definitely ship to the UK. When you check out (go to pay for your order) it comes up with what country you would like to ship to. Put in United Kingdom, your city/town, and zip code and it will calculate the cost... OliveLeafMAX Capsules . In regards to testing, the IgG test is still the best option if the Western blot can't be done. Just make sure you ask for a type specific IgG test. This is important.

Good luck and all the best to you!

The 12% HP would be okay to use, you just need to triple the amount to get the correct dosage. For instance, if you look at the chart on page 74 of the book, on day one you take 3 drops of the 35% HP diluted in 6-8 ounces of distilled water 3 times per day. So if you have the 12% grade you would need 9 drops of this to make up (roughly) the same amount. So you would take 9 drops of the 12% HP diluted in 6-8 ounces of distilled water 3 times for the day. At the maximum dosage (day 23) you would need 75 drops in water taken 3 times per day.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Chlorella
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

I felt that adding chlorella to my smoothies ruined the taste a little so I started making a "chlorella tea" which I am in love with. Does the heat eradicate the benefits? If so, do you know any alternative way I can take it?

Thanks. :)

Heating the chlorella destroys the nutrients and live enzymes so do not do this. Try either a cold type of tea, or do what my wife does, mix it in a small amount of water and chug it down!

Colloidal silver?
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

I'm confused about the colloidal silver dosage. Heather says she used 5 drops 5 times/day, a total of 25 drops. This is half a tablespoon or less a day. Is that correct or maybe she wanted to say 50 drops 5 times/day?

How many drops should I take every day or ml? I bought the colloidal silver you recommended on the protocol.(Sovereign Silver 10 PPM)

Thanks a lot!

I’ve been doing this protocol since June of 2017. I slowly added the supplements and changed my diet to meet the protocol’s restrictions. I tested in October and was 6.6. After this, I added the food grade hydrogen peroxide which I’ve done twice now with going to 20 drops (I decided not to go to 25 drops since I only weigh 105lbs). I just received my current test results from two days ago and I’m so heart broken that the antibodies have gone up to a 6.95. Please give me some kind of hope to continue. Thank you for your time!

No. Your body will detox. It's like comparing living in the city with living out in the wilderness. The air is much cleaner out in the wilderness than what it is in the city (no vehicle fumes, pollution, etc) so technically your body would cleanse better if you lived amongst nature. However, it will still cleanse and detox if you live in the city, it can just take longer. Having amalgam fillings is similar to this analogy. If you choose to get them removed great. If you don't, don't be overly concerned. Your body will still detox. :)

Taking these 10 minutes before a meal is fine Matt, however, try not to take so much of the ascorbic acid in one hit. If you can break it down a bit more throughout the day that would be more beneficial. :)

Bone broth and protein
by: Matt

How detrimental is eating 100 grams of animal protein coming from the highest quality source? 100%, pasture raised, wild caught, etc.

Also, I'm a huge fan of bone broth because of the enormous amount of health benefits. But I've heard the collagen and gelatin fuel herpes. Where do you stand on this?

Thank you very much Troy.

Reply to "Colloidal Silver" Comment

With the colloidal silver you take one teaspoon (5 ml's) and hold under the tongue for 30 seconds then swallow. Do this 5 times a day for 3 months, then after this, take one teaspoon twice daily for a further 9 months. Also remember to never use a metal teaspoon when measuring out your dosage.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

I've answered similar questions to this many times. I'm not sure why you would get retested after only 3 months. There is no benefit to doing this. All it does is hurt your progress. Why? Because your antibodies take a long time to peak AND take a long time to go back down. This is how it works. Are you getting any breakouts? How do you feel physically (health wise). These are the indicators you need to focus on, not your antibody count. If you want to test and see where your at, do what James recommends, drink grapefruit or orange juice...

"Drinking grapefruit juice or freshly squeezed orange juice is a good way to test and see if the virus is still active in the body. These fruits should be eaten or juiced several times per week while detoxing. These fruits will cause outbreaks in most cases, only until the virus has been completely killed. As time goes on, the outbreaks will become less and less aggressive and last only a few days. This is a general rule of thumb but everybody is different until the body is completely detoxed and the virus has been destroyed".

Stay the course and don't get retested for at least another 6 months. Like I said, there's no benefit.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

I really don't see a problem if you're eating moderate amounts of high quality animal protein Matt. 100 grams is negligible in my opinion. With the bone broth, I'm also a big fan of this. Yes, it's a bit high in arginine, but like Dr Beverly Meyer says, once your immune system is strong you are better able to handle any reactions (if there are any) to arginine if you have herpes. Try it and see. If you find it causes breakouts then drop it, if not, consume in moderation. :)

Getting Tested
by: Dave

Hey Troy.
Well, just reached the 10 month mark following this protocol, while using pretty much most of the supplements mentioned and recommended. Had only two relatively mild OB's during this period of time.
Must say that I have 'tried my best' to challenge the virus by eating/consuming plenty of grapefruits/grapefruit juice to check its existence, but it had it's own mind and broke out when it felt like it - regardless of any proximity to the grapefruit I was consuming.
I must say that I still experience this tingling sensation down there - which clearly indicates its existence - can't say it's not frustrating and very disappointing. So, I ask, what now? How does one continue from here?

I have not taken the test yet, but considering doing it soon anyway, think it's about time. If it comes back positive, what then? How do I continue with this protocol? Do I level up the amounts and dosages once again to the max? How healthy is it to the body to continue consuming the BHT, Colloidal Silver, Zinc, H2O2, etc?

Regarding the test, (I actually never got tested before but was diagnosed visually for having genital Herpes - not knowing if it's type 1 or 2). At this point, after having this virus for 3 years now, and going through this protocol for almost a year, what is the best test recommended to take from the following for the most reliable and informative results, considering the Western Blot is not an option for me...
1. 'Herpes Type Specific Immunoblot Test by ELISA/IFA.
2. Herpes Type 1 and Type 2 Tests.
3. Herpes Simples Virus, Type 1 and 2 DNA , REAL-TIME PCR.

Tnx

Thank you for your response. I feel great to be honest. I do feel like I am killing the virus. I don’t get the painful tingling sensation I used to get in the spot where my breakouts occur.
I did a bad breakout after the first time I tested in October. I did have a couple of outpatient procedures done since I was in a car accident. I had cortisone injections and they did another test with iodine. I looked up the molecular structure of cortisone and noticed there is oxygen in it so I thought this might have helped kill the virus. Any thoughts on this?
A couple weeks before I retested I did notice that when I climaxed I would have an internal serve of pain. I didn’t think much of it at the time since I didn’t have any other symptoms of having a breakout. I didn’t have any blisters or swollen glands. Now I’m thinking it must have been the virus that was causing this. This internal pain went away two days after I retested.

Recent diagnosis
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy. I was recently diagnosed with HSV earlier this month. They were not able to type it as my blood results came back negative so they said it was a recent infection. I already started with the oregano oil under the tongue and lower back. Other items I am using are chlorella pills, silver, and most of the powders for the shake (pomegranate, Maqui, camu, wheatgrass) and I am also beginning my raw food diet tomorrow. Due to this being a recent infection, how long would it take me to potentially get rid of the virus? Will everything that I have now get rid of it? Do I need to get OLE? I go back for another blood test to "type" the virus at the end of June and I'm praying for negative results.

Tail end of protocol
by: Cj

Hi Troy, trying to keep the questions at a minimum for my last couple of months but as always, thank you. If I embark on ozone therapy, from an ozone Dr not a home machine, I assume this is the "Cadillac" of doing hydrogen peroxide, but will the ozone interfere in any way with this protocol that I have put so much into. After my 12 months is up I really don't know if I could continue as I am leaving my job of 25 years to start my own business, so finances will be an issue and so will stress. Trying to keep stress and depression in check but very hard. Also wanted to add I was able to connect with a couple of the people here that posted emails... truly great people and we do our best to encourage and help each other. Thank u for that also.

Hi Dave. You continue exactly as you are doing. Nothing changes. A person put up a post recently saying that as they've continued on this protocol, they've been regularly getting tested for the virus (not something I recommend, but up to them) and they've watched their IgG levels gradually come down on each test. She made an interesting comment... she said all you need to do is keep doing what you're doing until you get that negative test! It really is as simple as that. If it takes longer than 12 months, or shorter, it doesn't matter in the scheme of things. 12 months is a ball park figure. It will take longer for some people (especially those who've been infected for a long period) and shorter for others. Unfortunately, that's how it is. I always say that it's not a race. Of course everyone would like the virus gone as quickly as possible, but even if you had to continue for another 6 months, or even 12 months (just using this as an example), if it meant you were free from the virus for the rest of your life would it be worth it? I recommend you focus on building up your immune system to the absolute maximum. Hit the supplements and detoxing foods hard for the next 3 months. Get your daily intake of OLE up to 6 capsules a day (if you aren't already). Make sure the oregano oil is used topically on the base of the spine, orally under the tongue and taken with water. Consume lots of immune boosting herbs and spices, chlorella, cilantro, etc, everything you can get your hands on. Redo the HP protocol exactly as what's outlined in the One Minute Cure book. The herpes virus is stubborn. You need to hit it with all you've got to destroy it.

In regards to testing, the ELISA type specific is what you want according to herpes expert Dr Jen Gunter, so go with this if you can get it. It's a pity you didn't get an initial test done back at the beginning so you could compare. At least your current test will tell you exactly where you're at.

Stick with it Dave.

All the best to you!

You absolutely need the olive leaf extract. This is the most important (if you had to pick one). Work up to taking 6 of the OLE capsules a day. With your test, it's unlikely that you will test negative in June as your antibodies wont have gone back down by then. Don't be alarmed, this is how it works. Even if the virus is completely gone from your body by then your antibody count will still be high. Have a read of this article for more information on this...

Hey, great that you were able to connect with some of the other people. With the ozone therapy, I believe it will help even more and wont interfere with what you're already doing/been doing. Also, even if once your 12 months is up all you do is continue to eat healthy and take a few supplements to keep your body healthy and immunity up (ie, OLE, chlorella/wheat grass, probiotics) this will be enough. Remember, it's about staying healthy too so you grow to be an old man! lol.

Hi Troy, I wanted to lay off the questions for a bit to give others a chance. I am extremely discouraged but you may have answered what i was seeking with Dave. Last night and this morning I noticed a small red spot indicative of a break out, not positive but fairly sure. I would guess it's because I never had random spots show up before I was infected. I am extremely discouraged... I have just finished my tenth month. I have had a lot of stress with this, my job and personal life, beyond normal, and I hate to admit as a grown man I cry often. I know you're not Dr Phil but I am grateful to you. I really would like to be done with this by the end of March, which would mark 12 months, but if this is a BO then that may be a pipe dream. I, like many, are putting faith in you. If 12 months is not enough do you suggest longer? It seems like clock work every 8-10 weeks and as I mentioned I have tingling on a regular basis. I'm not sure how to get my stress levels down, my mind does not stop running. I know you are very busy with questions on your site but this is one I would really like help with. Getting a BO this late in the protocol, does that mean I have failed. I have worked so hard, spent so much and sacrificed. Thanks Troy

Regimen
by: Anonymous

Thank you Troy. I just ordered a bottle of the Olivus OLE Max today and should receive it by Monday. I wanted to check with you to see how my regime looks. I am currently on Day 3.

All of my supplements are taken at least 10-15 minutes apart and I will add the OLE capsules in there once I receive them.

Morning (all between 6:30am and 11:30am): 1.Oregano oil/Coconut oil under tongue and lower back along with 4 drops in about 4-6oz filtered water.
2. Silver
3.Drink a warm cup of ACV with a teaspoon of raw honey.
4. Vitamin C 5. Antioxidant shake (with majority of the same powders as Heather used) with cilantro and hemp protein and banana shake with chia seeds afterwards
6. Silver
7. I'm planning to add a cup of Match green tea some mornings as well.

Afternoon (between 12pm and 5pm):
1. Chlorella tablets on empty stomach (highest dose recommended on package is 6 which I take) 2. Vitamin C
3. Silver
4. Spinach and kale salad with cherry tomatoes and 2 caps full of ACV/sometimes another veggie (sweet potato and carrots are what I've been doing so far. Trying to see what else I can add)
5. For a snack in mid afternoon I eat an apple/banana with organic peanut butter.

Evening (usually between 7pm and 10:30pm):
1. Vitamin C
2. Silver
3. Cup of warm ACV and raw honey
4. Antioxidant shake and hemp protein and banana shake with chia seeds (I may include a vegetable as mentioned above)
5. Silver
6. Oregano oil/Coconut oil under tongue and on lower back as well as 4 drops of oregano oil in 4-6oz of water

I drink at least a gallon of filtered water with lemon throughout the day.

This diet has been extremely hard, but it is also only day 3. I'm adjusting. I've been also trying to train myself mentally by listening to motivational speeches, mostly Les Brown and Abraham Hicks. These help me to stay focused and positive.

One last thing, I will be going out of town one weekend this month. I plan to continue to my regime. I was wondering, though, would I be okay to eat out at a vegetarian or vegan restaurant or should I just stick to my own food? If I had, say, one bowl of ice cream or a candy bar, would that set me back? I don't think that I will do this but I thought I'd ask just in case I lose control.

So encouraging
by: Anonymous

I was diagnosed with HSV-2 last July. At first I was in denial as to having the virus because I didn’t have any outbreaks so I thought the test was false. I recently had an outbreak in November that lasted about 3 days. When I sat and looked back I remembered that I had all the same symptoms that I had for a "yeast infection" back in February of 2017. So I probably had contracted the virus then. About a week ago I had another breakout but it was no blisters or open sores, it just hurt extremely bad! I really want to try this but I’m not sure how to start. If there’s anything you can tell me to lead me in the right direction to actually start it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

35% Hydrogen peroxide illegal in UK without licence?
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy,

I hope this message finds you well. I was considering starting the hydrogen peroxide treatment only to read that the buying of 35% is now illegal in the UK without a license? The maximum legal percentage to buy this is 12%. I couldn't find a similar strength of amazon or anything either... am I searching for the right thing?

Here is where I read about the law: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/licensing-for-home-users-of-explosives-precursors/licensing-for-home-users-of-poisons-and-explosive-precursors

I take OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver, chlorella and eat as the protocol requires also. I also intend to do regular heavy metal cleanses containing Bentonite Clay, Cilantro,Activated Carcoal, Bayberry, Chlorella, Spirulina, Moringa,Cascara Sagrada, Dandelion Root, Burdock root and Diatomaceous Earth. Will this work if I am unable to get the hydrogen peroxide?

Daily Breakdown
by: Nami

Hi Troy, all,

I've decided to finally post a comment here after having read through the main article, Heather's story, Jessica's story, and all of the comments and replies on each. It has definitely helped me knowing that I am not going through this all alone.

I also I just want to say that Troy, you are an absolute all-star and I've scarcely come across anybody so kind, helpful and altruistic in my entire life. When I get this nasty thing out of my system, I, like CJ am going to come and thank you in person.

Just like everybody else here I'm sure, I go through periods of great hope as well as periods of great despair and misery. Sometimes I feel totally optimistic, but I still breakdown crying several times a day. The only thing I know for certain is that healing from HSV is going to be a journey and we have to just keep pushing through. Time is going to pass regardless of whether we decide to apply maximum effort to eradicate this thing — so we might as well go for it!

9:15 PM: :) <3
9:30 PM: Oregano oil on spine

Here are some of the treatments I use topically: DMSO gel, tea tree oil, Melissa (lemon balm), oregano oil. I stopped using hydrogen peroxide topically as I read it can actually weaken the skin quite a bit and slow the regeneration process; if you do decide to use it, use it sparingly.

Additional info: The brands for all the products I use are the ones recommended by Troy in the main article or the ones recommended by James Destroy Disease on YouTube. The products are indeed very expensive (total cost), but it's either that or suppressive therapy / meds for the rest of my life — not interested. If you're on a budget, go for the most key components of this protocol that Troy mentions many times throughout the comments section. Most of the other supplements I purchased where specific brands weren’t indicated are from Thorne Laboratories (they have an excellent reputation for producing high-quality supplements).

The oregano oil I use is the Zane Hellas brand (inexpensive, incredible quality, slow shipping). I have a backup bottle in the mail which I suspect will only arrive once my current bottle is almost done. I purchased my colloidal silver (Sovereign Silver) in a huge 950ml bottle from Amazon that was expensive but will hopefully last a while. The OLE capsules from Olivus are also pretty expensive and I was charged an additional $25 in duties when they arrived (I live in Canada). I had a bit of trouble finding a good quality food grade 35% H2O2, but I finally ordered my bottle from Upaya Naturals. I’m still not certain how I feel about ingesting the stuff, though; it leaves a strange taste in the mouth and I’m honestly a bit scared of it but I’m going to keep it going for now…

Finally, I added lecithin capsules (non-GMO) and monolaurin because I’ve read about their wonderful ability to suppress / kill the herpes virus. I’ve also added a liver cleanse supplement (Thorne) to my protocol to help my body rid itself of harmful substances and be prepared to absorb the good stuff.

I sincerely hope this helps somebody out there and just know that you aren’t alone. We will kill this thing and emerge as better and stronger human beings!

Dates and Supplements
by: Anonymous

Hello Troy!

Are organic medjool dates ok to eat? They have 26g of sugar for 2 dates, but they are an easy way to get more calories, which I desperately need.

Also, is 1000mg vitamin C supplement still needed if we are eating camu camu powder (which provides 708 mg of vitamin c in one teaspoon)?

Did Jessica take vitamin C and zinc? I really wish Jessica had explained what supplements she took per day and how much of them. It makes a huge difference for someone like me whose body can't handle taking all the supplements. She mentioned she was tiny, and so am I. I wish I knew exactly what she took and how much of it. Do you happen to know?

Going into this 100%
by: Natasha

Hi Troy- it's Natasha again (July 25 and January 21). I have now started my Dr Schulze 30 Day Detox (1 month of juice only and lots of other intense routines). I am on my 13th day and going strong (have been following it to the letter). My intention is to detox from all the heavy metals and toxins that the herpes virus hides behind and then start the protocol that I outlined on July 25th (based on you, Heather and James Destroy Diseases and a few other sources on the net), which I hope will kill the virus once it has been exposed. I will do this for the rest of the year probably.

I just went through this page again, using my search bar to avoid asking you to repeat answers so I hope I won't ask questions you've already had...

1) Seafood: I understand that we can eat fish (wild caught). I want to go to a seafood restaurant every week or so and order a piece of fish and ask them to cook it with no sauce and no oil. If there is left over oil from the last cook still on the grill, will this be detrimental? (I'm guessing most places use cheap oils that I'm not supposed to eat). I would bring my own organic salad with me. Or could I treat myself and eat a regular non organic salad?

I accept that we shouldn't eat shellfish (prawns, mussels, scallops, crabs, lobster). Are oysters included in this? (I'm pretty sure they are, I guess I'm just hoping for a miracle.) What about octopus? Basically, I guess I'm asking if it is literally just fish that we can eat, or if there are ANY other seafood's.

2) Steaming and BBQing: I read that it is OK to steam our veg (lightly). What are your thoughts on lightly BBQing? I know cooking food in any way is not as good as eating it raw, but is it DETRACTING from our success or just not adding to it?

3) Tattoos and Laser: Can I get my eyebrows tattooed on or will the ink be a toxin? Also, can I have laser hair removal during this process (like, are there any toxins from the laser?)

4) Olives: Can I eat organic jarred olives? (The ones sitting on the shelf at my organic shop, not the fridge).

5)Salt: Is Himalayan pink rock salt OK to eat? (some detoxes warn about all salts)

6)Non-organic: Of course organic is better but if I am at a restaurant or a friend's house for dinner, will it be detrimental to eat non-organic fruit and veg every now and then? I know it's hard to say but would it really set me back that much? I'm really trying to do everything spot on but hoping there may be a little leeway (sometimes I get too strict with myself).

Thanks so much Troy. :)

Breastfeeding

Hi,
I would like to start this protocol once I’m done breastfeeding. I’m afraid that if I start this heavy detoxing when I’m still breastfeeding a lot will go into my milk. I couldn’t find anything on this topic so I thought I’d put it out there.

Could you please advice?

Thank you!

IgG Test

Hi Troy,

I have posted in the past and you have been very helpful. I contracted HSV2 in August. I have been on protocol and diet since September. I have been testing monthly with the IgG test. My scores have been (in order): 153, 128, 109 and 122. My most recent test was negative <.91. I still have OB symptoms but no new ones. Is it possible for me to be negative while my skin is still healing from past outbreaks?

Good morning Troy. I hope you are well. So, I really love chocolate and, of course, I know that sugar is a big no no of this process. My friend was telling me about cacao. Is this okay to use? I found this recipe for mousse that includes banana, avocado, and cacao. It also has options to add vanilla extract and maple syrup or coconut sugar. I just really want to bring variety into this diet and make it more fun. Is this possible?

Raw organic cacao is good for you so absolutely no problems there. Avoid the maple syrup though and not too much of the coconut sugar (it's definitely a much better option than refined sugar of course) - use just enough to sweeten. The recipe you mention is actually identical to the one my wife uses to make her own home made mouse. It's healthy and boy does it taste good! :)

Timing of Supplements?
by: Anonymous

First of all I’d like to say thank you. I was diagnosed earlier this month and felt overwhelmed (understatement) and quite frankly, felt like there was no hope. These articles have given me hope and I am thankful that God sent them my way.

My question is how to time all of the supplements. I’ve been adding them one at a time to get used to taking them. Currently I am taking the OLE and OO and waiting for the colloidal silver to arrive. I just received the HP and now I'm unsure of how to fit it into my regimen since it must be taken at least 1 hour before meals or 3 hours after. I usually take the OLE and OO in the morning as soon as I wake up and again right before I go to bed... about 15-20 minutes apart from each other. Ideally it would be nice to add the HP around the same time but I’m concerned it would interact with those supplements. I take the lysine between breakfast and lunch and the chlorella/probiotic about 10 minutes before lunch. I’m just not sure how to add it all in since everything has to be on an empty stomach.

Thank you for your input and for your time. There are many blogs where there is never a response to questions. I appreciate that you take the time to answer them all.

The hydrogen peroxide wont interact with the other supplements. When it comes to taking all of the supplements on an empty stomach and apart from each other, just do the best you can. Even 10 minutes apart is okay if that's all the time you have.

Reply to Cj
by: Troy

You definitely haven't failed Cj. I still recommend you do what I suggested before. After your 12 months is up, continue to take the OLE, wheat grass/chlorella, and a few of the other supplements for your overall health, even continue to apply the oregano oil a few times a week, along with still eating healthy (but just not as rigorous as what you're doing now). I have to be honest with you, your biggest hurdle is your thoughts. Unfortunately, stress can undo much of the work you've put in. With that said, think about your stress level right now and the breakouts you've been getting (if in fact they are breakouts) and compare this to before you started. When your stress levels were high (before you started this protocol) and you got a breakout, how bad were your breakouts back then compared to now? This will give you a good indication of how far you've come and the progress you've made. If you can reduce your stress levels, that would be terrific for your healing. I know it's not easy, but I believe this is the final piece of the puzzle for you. Stay the course Cj. You're actually much closer to being free from this virus than you think. I would also like to recommend a book to you... "Conversations With God" by Neal Donald Walsch. You'll either think it's a load of cods wallop or you'll get some life changing information from it. It helped me tremendously when I was going through a difficult time in my life. Hope it helps you.

All the best to you CJ! :)

What you're doing looks good. When you get your OLE, make sure you work up to 6 capsules a day. Give yourself several weeks to do this so you don't get hit with herxheimers. I would also recommend you include the HP as outlined in the One Minute Cure book. Listening to Les Brown and the Teachings of Abraham is excellent. I listen to these myself. In regards to eating out at vegan restaurants? If you have to then do so. It's always better to cook and eat your own food though. This way you know exactly whats in it. As a treat, go with something healthy like 100% natural ice cream/sorbet or natural crushed fruit icy poles if you happen to "lose control", rather than candy or commercial ice-cream.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Reply to "So Encouraging" Comment

If you're finding it all a bit overwhelming, don't despair. Start off slowly if need be. Read the Dr Axe raw food diet article and begin there. With the supplements, begin on the OLE, oregano oil, colloidal silver and hydrogen peroxide. Once you get into the swing of taking these, consider adding more like wheat grass/chlorella, probiotics and the BHT. You can take your time with this. There's no need to rush. Make small changes to your diet every day. Once you get used to taking your supplements and eating correctly, it will all become second nature.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Hi Nami. Firstly, thank you for taking the time to share your full protocol with everyone AND your excellent accompanying thoughts. Tremendous! I have to say, you've absolutely hit the nail 100% on the head! Your daily outline/protocol is right on the money. There's nothing else you need to do except go through the required time frame needed to eradicate the virus. Don't be scared of the hydrogen peroxide either. As long as it's food grade, it's perfectly fine to take. The medical profession and big pharma constantly poo poo hydrogen peroxide because they can't patent it (the medical profession actually use HP but don't tell you this). Some people continue to take HP for years, just for the health benefits. This article by hydrogen peroxide expert Dr David Williams is the best I've managed to find so far on the powerful benefits of HP... Hydrogen Peroxide: Curse or Cure? - Dr David Williams. It's definitely worth the read.

I also forgot to mention (to everyone), make sure that when you purchase your chlorella, the manufacturer isn't getting their supply in from China. Unfortunately, there are some who are. You don't want chlorella or spirulina that's been imported from China.

Thanks again for sharing your regimen and thoughts Nami.

All the best to you! :)

Yes, dates are high in sugar. That's the negative. However, I would rather see someone eat a dozen dates if they have to, to keep their calories up, than say, eat a chunk of full fat cheese or drink a glass of milk (both of which you should avoid). So go ahead and eat them. Tahini, quinoa, raisins, organic peanut butter (in small quantity), chia seeds and Greek yogurt are also healthy AND high in calories. Unfortunately, I don't know exactly what amounts and dosages Jessica used and took during her protocol. Sorry. :)

Want to get rid of Herpes
by: Anonymous

Hello Troy,

Thank you so much for helping and giving us information to get rid of this virus permanently.
I got my first genital OB at the end of Jan and my doc told me it was Herpes. She can't tell which type and can't give me much more info either. Living in Germany and having genital herpes is like a death sentence here. I was so depressed as I am a single mom and wish to have a partner someday, but I don't want to transfer this virus to anyone. That is why I want to be cured. I am starting the raw food detox (second day today) and want to ask:
1. It is ok to eat raw chili, onion and tomatoes?
2. I read that kimchi is good for the gut and is great for me as I make and eat kimchi a lot. We did use a bit flour and fish sauce to make the kimchi, is it still ok?
3. I can only find colloidal silver (not sovereign silver), is this still ok?
4. Planning to do the raw food detox for 30 days and then will add the supplements after my 30 day detox finishes. I will then add some salmon/chicken/sweet potatoes/eggs for lunch perhaps couple days/week (how many days in a week can I eat these? And it is ok if chicken and sweet potatoes not organic? Can't really find organic here). I want to add this to my diet as I am quite skinny (103 lbs / 160cm).
Looking forward to your reply and thank you in advance for your help!

Dairy

Hey Troy,

Is 100% grassfed, raw dairy a viable option in moderation? Butter, keffir and cheese all seem to be beneficial for me at times, with no adverse reactions. Thanks!

Also, Lysine with food or on an empty stomach?

Also, I've been taking BHT for about 10 months at 1000mg a day. Is it a health concern to remain at this dosage until I destroy the virus?

Raw chillies, onions and tomatoes are extremely good for you and can be eaten whenever you want. Kimchi is also extremely good for you, in fact all probiotic rich foods. Living in Germany, sauerkraut would be popular wouldn't it? With the colloidal silver, you can buy Sovereign Silver in Germany from Amazon... Sovereign Silver. You don't list the brand that you purchased so i can't say if it's good or not. with the foods you talk about, chicken, sweet potatoes, etc, these can be eaten every day, or every second day. Just not too much. If you're already quite lean then look to eat more high calorie healthy foods. Have a read of the Q&A above titled "Dates and supplements".

Hope this helps.

Reply to Natasha
by: Troy

Hi Natasha. Firstly, I can only give you recommendations, the rest is up to you. Some of the questions you asked you've pretty much answered yourself. With seafood, it's wild caught fish only. Going to a restaurant and having grilled fish (and their salad) is okay every now and then though. You still have to live. Steaming is fine but barbecuing, not really. On a hotplate yes, but not over a grill. With a grill the fat drips onto the flame and creates a toxic gas that goes into the meat. Avoid this at all costs. The ink from tattoo's is toxic yes, and laser removal? Not much better. Olives are good for you, no problems there, and so is Himalayan pink rock salt (I regularly recommend this because of the high amount of absorbable trace minerals). In regards to organic vs non-organic. If you can get organic then great, if not, non organic will still suffice. Just do the best that you can. You're on the right track Natasha so stick with it.

Good luck and all the best to you!

Yes. Strangely enough, symptoms can still occur if your antibodies drop rapidly, but they should be mild and definitely be dissipating. If you get a fresh outbreak then I would say your last test may have been a false positive. Given the fact that your levels have been consistently dropping, however, it's unlikely that it was. Continue to stick with what you're doing (protocol) and monitor your symptoms over the next few months. Try the grapefruit and orange juice technique (drinking/consuming lots of these) and see what happens. :)

The thymol is too low to be toxic (you do need a small amount of thymol remember). You can buy the Zane Hellas oregano oil in soft gel capsule form if you're struggling with the taste. Take one capsule daily. I would recommend you still try and do the under the tongue method along with taking the capsules if you can. Try halving the liquid OO dosage or consider adding more coconut oil?

Hope this helps.

If you can get dairy foods that are raw and unpasteurized then by all means have them. The lysine should be taken on an empty stomach. With the BHT, people have taken up around 1000 mg's a day for years on end with no adverse effects or problems. However, you could probably back off the dosage a bit now, back down to around 500-750 mg's a day.

Hope this helps.

Oven-roasting, chicken wings, pan-frying, oils, sashimi, sunscreen
by: Natasha

Hi Troy. Thank you for your responses as always. I am about to come off the Dr Schulze 30 day juice detox and start eating again. Please may I ask:

- I know I can eat raw and steamed organic veggies. Can I lightly pan fry them? Or could I bake them in the oven? Like, oven-roasted veggies?

- With my organic chicken, can I eat the skin? How about the wings? It would be AMAZING if I could still have wings! (no sauce of course)

- Can I pan fry my fish and bake it in the oven (not in aluminium foil)?

- I know we can have coconut and sesame oils. Which of the following are OK to have? Olive oil, almond oil, peanut oil, apricot kernel oil, sunflower oil (all organic).

- I plan to eat a lot of wild caught fish as sashimi. Is it OK to have raw? And in relation to this, can I have wasabi? Is there anything similar to soy sauce I could have?

- I've read a lot about how toxic sunscreen is. What is your opinion on organic natural sunscreen?

Eating organic chicken once a day, around 100 grams (4 oz), is about what you should be having. Try and incorporate wild caught salmon into your diet also

Hi Natasha. Firstly, oven roasted veggies are the best, however, lightly pan frying in no oil or a little coconut oil is okay (make sure your pan is good quality and safe... Safest Cookware Options). With the oils, the ONLY safe oil is organic coconut oil. All the other oils you mention go rancid are are easily affected (degraded) by heat, light and air so do not use them. With the chicken, no skin or wings, too much saturated fat. Fish can be pan fried (lightly) in a little coconut oil or oven roasted (the best option). Raw fish is okay also. Not sure about wasabi alternatives. Shrimp is best avoided. Shell fish are scavengers and carry a high toxic load. Natural peanut butter is fine. Just not too much of course as it can (sometimes) induce breakouts due to its arginine content. In regards to sunscreens, I don't like any of them personally and never use them myself (along with sunglasses which prevent the sun from stimulating the glands behind the eyes and producing vitamin D). Of course, a natural sunscreen (totally natural) is the best option if you're going to use one. Here's how to easily make your own... Easy Recipe Homemade Sunscreen.

Hope this helps you Natasha.

Tattoo ink is toxic, yes, but no use worrying about what is already done. Your body will still detox. Making a shake in advance is no good.

Olive leaf extract 20%

Hello Troy,
Thanks so much for answering my previous questions. It means a lot to me. I have bought the supplements that I need to start the protocol and really believe I will be cured soon, that was until I got a letter from customs. My package of OliveLeafMax is being held by them so I went there and they said that they need to check if it is allowed to enter Germany. The officer was not so friendly and said that it surely will be destroyed and I will never get it. I have tried to look for it in Germany but the highest oleuropein in olive leaf that I found is just 20%. Will this still work? I am really depressed as I lose a lot of money (bought some bottles to save shipping and so that I can start the protocol without any problem). Please let me know if the 20% oleuropein is still ok?

In regards to the 20% OLE, this will still work, you will just need to make sure you take enough. Work up to taking at least 6 capsules a day in divided amounts.

Need to Clarify a Few Things...
by: Hopeful from Asia

Hi Troy,

Hope you’re well. I’m four months into my protocol and still getting outbreaks, but in the last two months have been able to somewhat resolve them with the DMSO cream - thank you for the suggestion.

OO: My skin rash from the oregano oil on the spine continues to be a problem, so I’m only applying about one inch right above the tailbone as all other areas have rashes that are taking a long time to heal. Will the application on this small area still work? I’m also applying it on the right and left sides of this limited area.

CS: Regarding colloidal silver, you mentioned 5 teaspoons for 3 months before reducing to 2 teaspoons. Should I continue with 5 teaspoons if I’m still having once a month outbreaks, only reducing when I’m outbreak free? Not sure about the 3 month rule.

LYSINE: Lastly, when I wrote a few months back you recommended taking it with Vitamin C and Zinc on a full stomach for better absorption, but I saw a recent reply above to take lysine on an empty stomach. Which is more effective for maximum effect please?

Thank you so much always for all your time, support and caring.

AM snack: 5ml colloidal silver

Lunch: 2 capsules of olive oil extract,
-10 minutes later 1000mg lysine and 1000mg time release vitamin C, 5ml colloidal silver.

PM snack: 5ml of collidal silver

Before bed: 2 capsules olive leaf extract
- 10 minutes later 4 drops Zane oregano oil in 4oz of water, 4 drops oregano oil and coconut oil under tongue for 10 minutes. And 4 drops of oregano oil and coconut oil on spine.
-20 min later 5ml colloidal silver,
- then an hour later the 500mg BHT, 600mg St. John’s wort, 1000mg lysine, 25 mg zinc and 2000mg time release vitamin C

I’m going to also be following the raw food diet (with tons of cilantro) as well as using the shakes that Heather and Jessica recommended with the spirulina/chlorella. Lastly, what kind of filtered water should I be drinking?

Thank you so much!! I can’t wait to get started and write my own testimonial!!

Applying the oregano oil near the site will still be okay, better than not applying it at all. If those rashes are taking a long time to heal then your immune system is still low. Focus on building up your immunity and eating lots of immune boosting foods including cilantro (by the bucket loads!)... Top 10 Foods To Boost Your Immune System. The colloidal silver can be left at one teaspoon taken five times a day for as long as you like (as long as you're using the Sovereign Silver which is safe). Make sure you're getting plenty of probiotics when taking colloidal silver also. With the lysine, zinc and vitamin C, these are all best taken on an empty stomach, however, if they make your stomach feel queezy or generally don't agree with you then taken after food can help to alleviate this problem.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Looks good Teresa. Make sure you include the hydrogen peroxide protocol as outlined in the One Minute Cure book. It really is crucial. Make sure you also check your source for the chlorella/spirulina carefully. Don't buy any that comes in from China - it's contaminated. The best filtered water is definitely your own from a good quality home filtration system... Best Drinking Water Filters. Don't drink bottled water.

Hope this helps you Teresa.

All the best!
