The Herpes family of viruses includes Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) 1 and 2, Epstein Barre Virus (EBV), shingles or Chicken Pox (Varicella zoster), Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and some newly discovered ones.
Herpes simplex virus 1 is the virus that breaks out around or inside the mouth. We call it a cold sore because it often follows a cold in childhood. As children, we may get HSV 1 once or twice each winter. When they come more often the child's immunity is low. Adults who get repeated attacks also have low immunity (this is obvious from a blood test where the white blood cell count is less than 5'000 per mm3).
Herpes simplex virus 2 breaks out in the genital area. It is often blamed on promiscuous sex but I believe it has quite different origins. I believe the virus is introduced to our bodies by another large parasite. Perhaps it is pinworms, or Ascaris. Perhaps it is a tapeworm stage, picked up from dust and dirt.
I have some evidence that it is released from dog tapeworm stages when these are being killed by your immune system. It is probably the same tapeworm stage as releases the Adenovirus (cold virus) which could explain why children frequently get "cold sores" during or after a cold. Nevertheless, you would not get sick from these viral releases unless your immunity was lowered.
Herpes lives in your nerve centers (ganglia) and it is from there that you can be attacked after the initial infection. Evidently your immune system can destroy them as quickly as they emerge. But a meal of aflatoxin or other moldy food suddenly "gags" your white blood cells and lets a viral attack happen.
The viruses can also be "triggered" which lets them out of hibernation (latency) to multiply and travel along the nerve fiber to the skin. Triggers are things that puts these nerve centers to work: sudden cold and heat, trauma from chafing and friction. Never drink water with ice cubes in it. Never eat hot soup with a metal spoon. Don't tweeze hairs.
Begin your prevention program by raising the immunity of your skin; this means removing all toxins from the skin. Use only natural lotions, softeners, cleansers on your skin made from recipes in this book. Health food brands are not superior. [...] Do laundry with borax and washing soda, only, to eliminate commercial detergent as a source, too.
As soon as you feel that warning tingle or sensation, zap. Immediately take a cayenne capsule and 8 lysine tablets (500mg each). The cayenne slows down travel of the virus along the nerve.
Attacks probably occur when triggers act at the same time an immune drop occurs. Immune drops happen frequently due to eating moldy food. Of course, mercury amalgam tooth fillings keeps immunity chronically lowered. Many persons report they stopped breaking out with Herpes 1 after replacing their amalgams. Stopping wearing tight synthetic underpants helps reduce Herpes 2 outbreaks.
