 Let's examine the medical facts before we jump to conclusions about being hopeless about Herpes.

Herpes Simplex type 1 and 2, commonly know as genital herpes is one of the most common infective causes of genital ulceration in developed countries. At least 50 million people in the U.S. alone are infected. Approximately one out of six people between the ages of 14-49 years in the U.S. have genital HSV-2 infection. The infection is life-long and often goes unrecognized because the infection is often subclinical and asymptomatic. However, in immunocompromised hosts, infections can cause life-threatening complications.

Pathogenesis :

  • Double Stranded DNA viruses
  • Exposure to HSV at mucosal surfaces or abraded skin sites permits viral entry and replication in cells of the epidermis and dermis
  • During latency, HSV is maintained in a repressed state compatible with the cell's survival and normal activities

Transmission of the herpes simplex virus typically occurs from sexual contact with people who have active ulcerative lesions. It can also take place via persons without clinical manifestation of disease who are shedding HSV virus or on whose mucosal surfaces the virus is replicating.Transmission of HSV-2 may be more efficient from men to women. Think about the plumbing. This may partly be due to the higher rate of disease recurrences in men which may make them more infectious. Asymptomatic shedding occurs in both men and women, but is more easily detected in women, mainly from the cervix and vulva.

The transmission from mother to baby usually occurs during vaginal delivery and is dependent on the prevalence of genital viral shedding at the time of delivery. Intrauterine (5%) and postnatal transmissions (10%) are rarer. Intrapartum transmission is rare in recurrent maternal infections (3-5%), but rises to between 33% and 50% where the mother has a first episode genital infection, with the greatest neonatal morbidity following late gestation primary infections.

Typically genital herpes are caused by HSV-2 however in recent times there has been a trend of HSV-1 causing genital herpes in young adults. It has been recognized that HSV-1 herpes infection can be transmitted to the genital area via oral sex.


  • Acquired in childhood by contact with oral secretions containing the virus
  • 90% + adults have the antibodies to HSV-1 by their 50s
  • HSV-2 antibodies prevalence rates correlate with sexual activity and vary among population groups
    • i.e. sex, age, socioeconomic status, and race
  • Acquired at earlier age than HSV-2
  • In populations of low- socioeconomic status, most persons acquire HSV-1 infection before the third decade of life


  • HSV-2 antibodies prevalence rates correlate with sexual activity and vary among population groups
    • i.e. sex, age, socioeconomic status, and race
  • Prevalence rates are about 5% higher in women than men
  • Infection can be sign of sexual abuse in children
  • Seroprevalence of HSV-2 antibodies was 45% in blacks, 22% in Mexican Americans, and 17% in whites.

Now you know that a large percentage of the population has HSV-1 and HSV-2 increases with unprotected sexual activity and the virus can shed even if there is not a lesion present. 

What to do?


The Herpes Box

This box was developed to support both people living with HSV1 and/or HSV2. The Herpes Box is bursting with viral specific immune system support ingredients and mucous membrane support.  The Herpes Box was designed to neutralize and remove toxins. It is effective against viruses and significantly boosts your immune system.  In addition to the Herpes Box, if you are experiencing chronic HSV-1 and/or HSV2 outbreaks, we highly recommend scheduling once a week I.V. Ozone MAH with German homotoxicology remedies for 12 weeks to achieve functional remission and we prescribe standard of care medicines to control expressive outbreaks.   

  • Support Immune System
  • Remove Toxins
  • Anti-Viral Super Powers



Ozone is one modality that works for chronic infections and is very effective for reducing and eliminating high viral loads.

Patients bring their documentation of their viral loads and after 3 10 pass MAH treatments, they retest and we see the numbers change. We have seen acute infections or IgM antibodies completely disappear, IgG antibodies from previous infections reduce and if someone is really lucky - they seroconvert; meaning the virus does not show up in their blood labs.

We have specialized medicines specific for herpes from Germany that are put into your MAH treatment to lure the virus out of tissue storage so that high dose ozone can bomb it in the bloodsteam. Herpes does cross blood-brain barrier and is linked to dementia and Alzheimer's in later life. We can review your diet and lifestyle habits and make strategic changes so you are not a good environment for viruses to thrive in. We also identify your "dirty genes", clean up your diet and lifestyle habits to help prevent recurrence. While there are no 100% guarantees of a cure - I.V. Ozone is one of your best treatment options for better health.
