There is no magic pill to cure herpes. If there were, people who offer to cure you with expensive products wouldn't be selling you enough magic pills to get you through your next 50 breakouts. But, you can put it in remission.
According to the Mirriam-Webster dictionary, remission is "a period of time during a serious illness when the patient's health improves".
And, according to Wikipedia, "Remission is the state of absence of disease activity in patients with a chronic illness, with the possibility of return of disease activity." and recovery is a restoration of health or functioning. A person who has been cured may not be fully recovered, and a person who has recovered may not be cured, as in the case of a person in a temporary remission or who is an asymptomatic carrier for an infectious disease."
Meaning, you can improve your health, restore healthy functioning, keeping in mind that you are not fully cured, but you have an absence of herpes. I don't know about you, but just thinking about the absence of any dis-ease makes me smile.
There are 3 things that can help you to put your herpes in remission, naturally.
#1 ~ Products to help you manage symptoms if and when they occur.
#2 ~ Information that you can understand concerning "What, Why & How?
#3 ~ Willingness to commit to your own health, well-being and happiness.
I can help you with #1 and #2, but #3 is up to you.
#1. Managing Symptoms
I don't know anyone who can function very well when they are in pain, suffering from agonizing itch, are moody or exhausted because nerves physical and emotional nerves are frayed. And, I doubt anyone in their right mind could handle feeling this way for days and weeks at a time, yet people do. It's HARD!
Whether you are dealing with just herpes or some other illness (or both), it's important to know you can find relief when you need it.
The Captains Lady can help with topical remedies, as well as a with a special tea that boosts immunity, helps to, both, prevent and relieve symptoms, and helps you to relax. Shop the Captains Lady for organic remedies.
#2. Information On "What, Why & How?"
Grab a copy of my e-book, The Old World Diet & Natural Remedies for Putting Herpes in Remission. It's easy to understand and I've answered "What, Why & How?" for you.
#3. Self-Esteem, Commitment & Remission
Often, just the idea of having herpes smacks down one's self-esteem. Don't allow this. Don't listen to that part of you that says you are less of a person with herpes than you were without, that you are used goods, that you are stuck with the person who gave it to you, because no one else will ever want you or love you again, or that you don't deserve love anymore because you gave herpes to someone else and you feel guilty. It's all lies. None of it is true.
Pick yourself up, dust off your feelings, and get back to the business of being you. YOU are not herpes. Herpes is not YOU. Herpes is something you now live with. That's all. You are still YOU. And, YOU are in control.
You will never be able to put herpes in remission if you don't acknowledge your own power to to be able to commit to #3 above, your own health, well-being and happiness. Why not? Because putting herpes in remission requires you to take part in changing a few habits. You won't be able to do this if you think you are powerless over herpes or any other area of your life. If you think you can't, you won't. You'll only end up sabotaging your best efforts.
But, no one changes all at once. No one. So, start with #1 and get some help with symptoms, so you can breathe. Then, move on to #2 and soak up some insights as to how to put herpes in remission. Learn all you can. And, as you are learning, make a conscious choice to commit to what you feel will best help you to put your herpes in remission. Everyone is different. Some people need to focus on diet, others on getting enough rest or finding ways to manage stress better. You decide. #3 is completely up to you. Just remember, you're a wonderful person and even when you are not you still deserve the very best life has to offer with or without herpes.
