I got infected with herpes HSV 1 and HSV 2 about 8 months ago (in Jan 2013). Blood test confirmed the infection. I have been doing lot of research for cure etc. Almost every one talks about boosting your immune system for your body to fight the HSV viruses. I believe Garlic is a very strong immune booster. Once in Dr OZ. show they were saying that how garlic can kill parasites / worms in your intestines. Even otherwise there are so many benefits of consuming Garlic. What I have started from past 3 days is that I take half a ball of fresh Garlic (about 6-7 cloves) peel them off. Put then in a blender, pour in half a glass of water, make a garlic / water shake and drink it. It tastes very bitter, and very difficult to drink, takes about half an hour to drink it. Feels like a nausea / hangover. I plan to do it everyday for next 6 months. Lets see what happens. I have never had a breakout since other then when I had initially got infected with it. Now on third day of having garlic juice I have one light sore down. Don't know if its cause of garlic juice or otherwise. Even other wise I believe I have a strong immune system because I eat Spinach. Broccoli,carrots, Apple, Banana, Almonds, raisins on daily basis and no meat (being vegetarian). Will keep posted.
