What is genital herpes? [↑]
Genital herpes (herpes genitalis or herpes on genitals) is a sexually transmitted disease (STD), which is usually transmitted by skin contact to skin. It is a contagious viral infection that mainly affects the genitals of men and women.
This disease may be caused by HSV-1 or HSV-2 virus, but is mostly caused by HSV-2. HSV-1 virus (main cause of cold sores) may affect the genital organs in the same way HSV-2 virus (main cause of genital herpes) can be transferred to mouth by oral sex.
The varicella-zoster virus, which causes chickenpox and shingles, does not usually cause this disease.
Herpes on genitals is very common. In United States it is estimated that one of every five adults is infected, but only a third of them are unaware that they have the virus.
Many of these people have no symptoms or have very mild symptoms, which leads to that these people do not worry be carriers of the herpes virus.
Some people who have been infected with the herpes virus does not usually have outbreaks because prevents it their immune system. Other people, on the other hand, have outbreaks of herpes a few days of being infected with the virus.
Transmission of genital herpes [↑]
The virus is spread from person to person by skin to skin contact with an infected area, not through the air like a flu virus.
Oral sex, intercourse and rubbing against the infected area are common examples of how the virus can be transferred. One does not have to have symptoms in order to be contagious. Due to viral shedding, the virus can be spread from contact with the apparently normal skin of an asymptomatic carrier.
The herpes virus does not pass through latex condoms. Condoms do not provide 100% protection because a lesion may be found which the condom did not cover. It is important to remember that the herpes virus can be transmitted when a person has no symptoms through viral shedding.
Therefore condoms or latex barrier should be used when there are no outbreaks. When condoms are used constantly, they are one of the best available ways of prevention.
If you read the herpes stories we have published on this site, you will see that in all of them the infected people did not protect themselves properly.
Herpes genitalis infection [↑]
A herpes genitalis infection goes through a cycle of phases. During the initial outbreak of herpes on genitals it is common to feel flu like symptoms (fever, headache, swollen glands).
The prodromal stage of the outbreak, when one experiences symptoms such as pain, itching, or tingling, often precedes the sores by one to two days. Next is the appearance of a small, fluid-filled blister.
The blister will usually ulcerate (seep) and then form a scab before healing and disappearing completely. The outbreak can sometimes resemble bumps, cuts, sores, or a rash in or around the genital area.
The typical duration of an outbreak is 3 to 14 days but may last as long as 6 weeks.
Once infected with herpes on genitals, the virus remains inside the body forever, usually in a latent (dormant) state.
The virus can become “activated” causing a recurrence due to many factors. When genital herpes reoccur they will typically appear in the same location that they did during previous outbreaks.
There are many factors that can cause, or “trigger” a genital herpes recurrence, however, it is often related to times when the immune system is lowered or run down.
Any of the following factors or a combination of them can trigger a herpes outbreak (but not always): disease, stress, surgery, fatigue, irritation of the skin (like sunburn), diet, menstruation, from the cold, strong sunlight or fever, relationships sexual strong and certain foods or drinks.
Herpes diet [↑]
If you have been infected with the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 or HSV-2), you should be concerned about your diet and lifestyle. This virus is very opportunistic and will start to affect you from the moment your immune system weakens.
Before starting any treatment, you should be worried about eating a diet rich in lysine and poor in arginine.
Lysine and arginine
Lysine is an amino acid that acts as a base; it is present in proteins synthesized by living beings, plays a fundamental role in the absorption of calcium and prevents the replication of the herpes virus.
Arginine is also an amino acid that is present in some proteins and its consumption can stimulate the production of leukocytes.
Unlike lysine, arginine contributes to the replication of the herpes virus. That's why people infected with this virus are advised not to eat a diet rich in arginine and poor in lysine.
The book "The Ultimate Herpes Protocol", which I will tell you about later, contains an extensive list of arginine-poor and lysine-rich foods. These are the foods that every person infected with the herpes virus should eat to avoid outbreaks.
Lysine to arginine ratio in food
The lysine and arginine content of a food is measured in milligrams and depends on the mass of the food.
If we wish to express the lysine/arginine ratio without considering the amount of the food containing them, we must use the lysine/arginine ratio.
This ratio expresses the number of milligrams of lysine per milligram of arginine in the food and it is obtained by dividing the number of milligrams of lysine by the number of milligrams of arginine.
Table 1 shows this ratio for a list of foods. In the first row of the table the ratio is 3. This number indicates that there are three milligrams of lysine in margarine for every milligram of arginine.
The ratio is less than 1 for foods that contain less lysine than arginine. These are the foods that should not be included in the diet of people with herpes.

Treatment of herpes genitalis [↑]
There are many different treatments and remedies to assist with healing and help to prevent recurrences. Topical treatments such as Medavir, Abreva and Zovirax can help to shorten the duration of the outbreak.
There are also treatments, herbs and foods that can help reduce the frequency of outbreaks of herpes on genitals. The drugs act in a way and the rest of the treatments make it otherwise.
One of the alternative treatments that best reputation has to fight herpes on genitals has been conceived by a British doctor. This treatment is known internationally with the name of “The Ultimate Herpes Protocol”. It has been used by thousands of people around the world with satisfactory results.
The treatment is designed to fight outbreaks of herpes genitalis and other types of herpes and is unique in its kind which removes the virus permanently.
