How I Cured Myself of Herpes (HSV2)...
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...
Everyone needs to flood their body with good nutrition.
Blockage is the root of all disease. Get the waste out!
Build a strong and powerful immune system!
Cleanse and detoxify all of your elimination organs!
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.
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.
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 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,
