Herpes Help Please


I contracted HSV 2 almost 3 years ago. I am a 36 year old male, weigh about 175 pounds and work out about 3-4 times a day. Due to my job, I need to go out with clients often and therefore drink alcohol often. I also smoke but am planning to quit soon.

I have tired all different treatments to try to get rid of this disease and found this site.

I am desperately looking for a cure to this and wanted to see the homeopathic experts to help. I have read different types of treatments on this site and was wondering if someone can help.

I would really appreciate some guidance here. Thank you!

Please take Arsenicum Album 200c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thanks Kadwa!

Thank you for the reply. I ordered the arsenicum album. I was wondering how long I have to be on the homeo restrictions. Is it for just that day, or is it a week, or is it forever?

Also, will this cure the virus, or just suppress it. I was wondering if there was a way to completely cure the virsus.

Thank you!
deanjones20 last decade
The restrictions no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes apply for the whole treatment period.
If a homeo remedy works it leads to cure and not to suppression.

You are always welcome JH.
kadwa last decade

Since this treatment only takes one day, is it right to assume that I need to be on the homeo restrictions just for one day?

deanjones20 last decade
Hello, I also want to know about the diet restrictions and how long because we eat a lot of raw onions and garlic.
gardenerd last decade
A homeo treatment starts with the patient taking the doses of the remedy and it continues till the remedy is successful in stimulating the vital force. So to be on the safer side one should observe homeo restrictions until one is cured.
kadwa last decade
The remedy acts internally and it is not correct to equate the period of dosing with the period of treatment.
kadwa last decade
So how would one know when that person is cured? Based on your previous experiences, what do you recommend one should do to determine if that person is cured? Thank you.
deanjones20 last decade
From the homeopathic perspective, when all symptoms are cured, and when the miasm is completely uprooted, then the miasm is completely cured.

I just got my arsenicum album. I normally drink two coffees a day, but will stop drink the coffees. When should I start the treatment? I did't drink any today, so is it ok to start tomorrow? Also, can you tell me when I can start drinking coffees again?

Also, I looked at other posts, and it seems like the Jewish Homeopath like to prescribe Nat-M. Just out of curiousity, I was just wondering why I was prescribed to the arsenicum.

Thank you so much.

**If you can't do without coffee you may take 2 cups (1 morning, 1 evening) a days after 2-3 days of taking Ars.

The remedy suggestion will differ from patient to patient and from prescriber to prescriber !!
kadwa last decade
Can learn more about Ars. and Nat-M. Smoking and drinking can be indications of Nat-M, if the emotional symptoms are there.

Thanks Kadwa and Jewish Homeopath,

I do smoke and drink. Should this change my treatment? I want to cure this once and for all. Thanks again.
deanjones20 last decade
Please read the descriptions of Nat-M and Ars.

The drinking and smoking could be indications for Nat-M.

I received that Aresenicum and plan to take in on Monday. Is alcohol at part of the homeo restrictions?

Also, thanks Jewish. But I read the links and can not understand what its saying. Please help interpret for me.
deanjones20 last decade
A good advice, never ask a patient to read the materia medica. It will only lead to confusion. Many remedies have similar symptoms. You are the homeopath, not the patient. :-)

Sincerly Parakletos.

I took my morning dose with water. Is that ok? I also had a few cigarettes. I wanted to know if this was permissable.

Next time shold I just take the pills without water?

Thank you,
deanjones20 last decade
No cigarettes 1 hr before or after. No water with pills.
kadwa last decade

Thank you. So I did ended up doing 4 doses, each 4 hours apart. THe first was with water. The last three I did not use water. Was this ok?

PLease advise. Do you think I should do it again, only three times?

Thank you.
deanjones20 last decade
Now you should not take any more doses and report back after 15 days.

This is from Kent's lecture on Thuja, but it is relevant to Ars. in a herpes case.

'In syphilis and psora Arsenic acts a long time and eradicates the complaints, when similar to them, but it is not similar to sycosis. Arsenic does not go to the bottom of the trouble, but Thuja and Natrum sulph. will take up the work and cure. Natrum sulph. and Thuja bring back the primitive manifestation that has been suppressed for years.'

I've seen this in some of my own cases that Ars. will cure the rest of the miasms, but not the figwarts. I know that some authors grade Ars. as an anti-figwart, but in this case, I think Kent is right.

You might want to take that into consideration in this case.
Homeopathy International 1 last decade
Thanks. I want to report that I got another OB today. This is 3 days after taking the arsenicum.

Any recommendations?
