Stress, Nutrition and the Herpes Virus...from:
Herpes is a virus that really feeds of the host's central
nervous system. When a person who has the herpes virus is on top
of their game, the virus is kept silent. Hiding in the nerves by
site of infection, but when stress strikes it's like a red flag
to the virus - Party time for old HSV. (Funny how it has the
same initials as a big red car).
Often it is just when a person think ' nothing else can happen',
when the Herpes appears to say, "remember me" with Dr Evil grin.
The best way to avoid Herpes outbreaks, and to minimize them
when they do occur is to really deal with the stress. Some types
are harder then others to deal with i.e. it may be easier to cut
back on caffeine then it is to lock your partner in the closet
to feel calm.
Improving diet can help with minimizing stress hugely, just
think of all the unnecessary preservatives, crap, caffeine,
sugar and chemical whoseewhatsit that is for sale in
supermarkets around the world. If your body is taking, absorbing
and digesting real foods - foods it knows and understands then
the body's stress will be less. Vegetables, fruits, nuts,
grains, fish and fresh meats are food the body readily
recognizes. All of our enzymes have a specific food group that
they deal to, and when there are chemically created and
non-healthful foods being ingested daily the balance is well and
truly thrown off. And the Herpes Virus is there to jump out and
feed on that.
The Herpes virus feeds on arginine rich foods and is inhibited
by lysine rich foods. If you have the Herpes virus chances are
you have heard of these two amino acids - if not it is time to
meet them. High Lysine Foods include Fish, Chicken, Lamb, Milk,
Brewers yeast, Mung beans, Sprouts and Oat flakes. High Arginine
Foods (to avoid during outbreak) are Peanuts, Pecans, Cashews,
Almonds, Chocolate, Peas, Garlic, Ginseng, Whole wheat. It is a
good idea to adopt this guideline around any stressful time.
It is great to take a note of the Arginine-lysine factor when
dealing with stress and the Herpes virus, as some of the foods
are classic ones our hands go out to when we want to feel
better, particularly chocolate and bread. It's not hard to
eliminate these for a short while when the other option is
suffering a Herpes virus outbreak. For other dietary options it
is a great idea to see a naturopath who can provide a
tailor-made you specific plan.
Other ways a naturopath can help eliminate the outbreaks of the
Herpes virus is to provide a plan whereby stress is dealt with
easily, and it is comfortable to keep healthy with an
impenetrable immune system.
The Herpes virus is a serious condition and can be severe with a
lot of people. The stigma attached to having the Herpes virus
also adds to the stress, especially genital Herpes. A great
stress reducing activity could be to join a Herpes chat room, or
tell a close friend, so you always have someone to talk about it
with. Having information is always really useful to not only
recovery but to a life and health extraordinary.
