  • I have has this for 7 years I am always sick. I have a fungal infection and yeast infection. Not HIV I always have blood in my urine and have abscesses that hurt badly. I feel parasites biting me


  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I have been taking ibuprofen regularly for headaches (not bad headaches) but also had a recurrence of herpes after nearly 40 years' dormancy after a stressful car accident. I began taking Acyclovir which was not very effective. Then my doctor gave my Valacyclovir. It was more effective but made me feel really hyper and not well at the same time. I stopped it after a few weeks. However, I also had the ibuprofen use and Acyclovir use before the Valacyclovir. I was complaining to my doctor about not being able to get over a cough and a sinus infection after 2 months. I am energized but don't feel or look well. She found lowered white blood cells among other pointers to bone marrow stress or damage. Ooooh I am going to be so careful now with what I put into my mouth. I don't know the outcome yet.

    For the herpes, I have tried many things including alternative medicine. The best results have been from a frequency generator that runs a current through you with a specific series of frequencies. It has virtually knocked the herpes out after a little over a week using it at night. No side effects!!
