Wondering what has worked for people to get their viruses down? Prescription meds? A-V, herbs?

Thank you

I'm still trying to figure it out. I have SEVERAL active viruses. Stuff I've tried...

Byron White did nothing (in fact allergic to some of the ingredients). Homeopathy did nothing.

Reishi is suppose to help, but not sure. Valtrex has helped some people, not me.

Good luck.

My doc says my immune system should also be able to keep the viruses down once my bacterial load is down.

Thanks Judie. I am trying Byron White's A-V now but don't feel a thing from it so.... may ask for Valtex at next appt.

Hoping my immune system kicks in and knocks this stuff back on it's own soon.

So confusing!

Ugh! Me too. I'm beginning to think viruses are why I continue to feel so crappy.

Doc says all my viruses have reactivated.

EBV CMV HHV6

Also I would bet my teeth some others like arbo and entero

Insects suck.

I tried A-V for the longest time. I couldn't get higher than 2 drops per week without being bedridden.

I think the astralagus in the A-V doesn't jive with my body.

Currently I take lauricidin three times a day with meals. (monolaurin).

I also used thieves oil in my body oil as a moisturizer.

That is it. I don't know what else to do for viruses.

My LL says my bacterial load is still too high to try any virus specific meds.

Today I went and got some groceries. I didn't rush, I toodled around. Hour and a half with the drive.

When I was done putting the groceries away, I had a nap.

For 5 hours.

These viruses are knocking me out.

Sorry I don't have much advice birdie or Judie. I just wanted you to know I'm in the same boat. I'm hoping others who have conquered viruses will chime in.

I'm glad you started this thread birdie.

For us too viruses are the last big hold out.

I'm using photon therapy for my son along with elderberry tonic.

He does well so long as we keep treating every couple of months or so but I'd like to see them clear completely.

Every time he over does it he needs to treat viruses again or he feels sick and tired.

Melissa essential oil cured a rash I'd had for 8 years, with just a few days of application topically on the rash. The rash did not respond to anything else I had tried (iodine, antifungal cream, antibacterial cream, Thieves oil, dietary modification, homeopathy, many herbs, etc.).

Muscle testing and dowsing said the rash was viral.

Melissa essential oil is the strongest anti-viral essential oil.

"I think the astralagus in the A-V doesn't jive with my body. "

Astralagus was my one of my issues. It was the LLPA that prescribed the Byron White.

I went over the ingredients with my ND whom I've worked with for years when I had the bad reaction. She said she sees astralagus cause autoimmune reactions in some people.

That's the problem that I have with Byron White stuff, there are so many ingredients and if one doesn't work for your body, it can really screw you over.

Does Melissa have a strong smell? It looks like it's used in aroma therapy and I might not be able to tolerate it.

I've had some rashes and they aren't fungal. I hadn't considered that they could be viral. Interesting...
