The Herpes Blitz Protocol is a program that promises to destroy the herpes virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) within days by eating 3 delicious Moroccan foods each day. It is offered by Josh Parker who states he contracted herpes himself and no longer has herpes. Is it a scam? No. I wouldn't say it's a scam, but it is clearly hard to follow.
The program can be started for as little as $27, which sounds great, right? Keyword "STARTED".
One thing you don't know, unless you listen to his very, very, very long video is that these 3 fruits won't work by themselves to 'cure' your herpes. Duh. Yes. I am being sarcastic. I absolutely detest that people get lured into thinking they can eliminate their herpes by eating or drinking or taking one or two or three little items just to find out, after they spent their money, they still, which he admits in his video, will need to follow a myriad of other dietary and lifestyle changes in order to 'cure' their herpes. And, let me just say, there is no cure. And, no one can tell you that you will 'cure' your herpes within a certain amount of days. You can put herpes in remission, but not with 3 fruits. Not even with 3 Moroccan fruits.
Here's the thing about the Moroccan fruit. In his video, Josh talks about how Moroccan soldiers were seemingly unaffected by the Herpes Simplex Virus when a group of sexually active soldiers started coming down with symptoms of herpes while the American soldiers in the group were coming down with symptoms left and right. Long story short, Josh determined it was because the Moroccan's diet consisted of eating these 3 fruits on a regular basis, which kept them from contracting herpes or, at the very least, experiencing any symptoms.
The 3 fruits contain active ingredients quercitin, resveratrol and curcumin, but then he goes on to say how getting in the right amounts each day would be difficult and, even if you could, herpes would still be alive inside your body. So, he goes on to describe a smoothie protocol you are to use for 7 days. Then, to destroy the herpes forever (to kill the virus, so it doesn't even show up in blood tests over and over) you're to go on a 21 day destroy phase to unmask and obliterate HSV-1 nad HSV-2, which he named The Herpes Blitz Protocol.
I purchased the program eager to find out what he was offering. It took forever to get through the checkout process as I was offered a variety of add-ons (which vitamins to use, tips on exercise, sleeping better, diabetes, Alzheimer's, how to lose belly fat, reverse hearing loss, improve vision, increase testosterone, faith healing, cupping, Tai Chi, aromatherapy, cookbooks, grocery lists, etc.) all for an additional amount of money.
After reviewing his protocol, I saw Josh put together a very strict dietary regimen that seems to completely ignore the #1 reason for more frequent or severe herpes breakouts, which is improper pH balance. I thought, perhaps, the foods he says are good for destroying the virus might help to balance pH without saying as much, but his recipes do not suggest this. In fact, his recipes include items known to be HSV triggers, such as chocolate and strawberries.
While Josh does offer some valid information on antiviral foods and herbs I'm not sure he can deliver his promise of an absolute cure. However, he does offer a 60-day, money back guarantee if your herpes isn't obliterated in 4 weeks. How are you supposed to tell? Go get blood tests to see if herpes is still in your system. Of course, it is possible to have a negative reading. He goes on to say in none of his videos during checkout that no one can tell if they have been reinfected with herpes after they've been cured, so he offers you a prevention program, which may just be another way of covering his A$$ (sorry about the crassness) when the program doesn't work.
So far, I see nothing about The Herpes Blitz Protocol that seems humanly possible without extreme overwhelm, which would probably bring on a herpes breakout, or that meets or exceeds what The Online Course: Putting Herpes in Remission, Naturally! has to offer by way of putting herpes in remission. Furthermore, I'm not completely happy with having my inbox blown up with sales pitches for other products, as well as the one I already purchased, that read as if he doesn't even know I am already a customer. Not to mention, the emails from several other sellers I am still unsubscribing from.
Still, if you are someone who prefers a strict menu to follow Josh's protocol may be worth following. However, there's one drawback. he doesn't tell you what to do after the 4 week period comes to an end. Do you go back to eating the way you were, decide on eating a healthier diet or stick to his strict regime the rest of your life? It's a question I asked. The answer? You're expected to follow this strict diet for the rest of your life. Are you kidding me? That's outright admitting the protocol DOES NOT obliterate (kill) herpes as he says it does.
In my opinion, don't waste your money. Instead, check out The Online Course, which isn't a menu plan, but a way of eating to put herpes in remission that's easy to follow.
