herpes-simplexIs it possible to get rid of genital herpes for good? The sad truth about herpes is that once it infects you, you carry the virus for life. But carrying the virus for life doesn’t have to mean you carry herpes symptoms whole of your life. Well, you cannot get rid of the virus – but you can do away with the signs and symptoms associated with it. There are many people with herpes who are living their lives the way they want to because they have learned how to manage their herpes symptoms. You can get rid of genital herpes by preventing its signs and symptoms from appearing.

Here are some vital points you need to know to get rid of genital herpes symptoms permanently:

Herpes Diet: following a strict diet is helpful in managing herpes symptoms. There are some food choices, especially those high in arginine, which can aggravate your herpes and cause symptoms to appear. These foods include nuts, raisins, and chocolate. Citrus fruits and processed foods should also be avoided.

Natural Herpes Remedies: there are plants which act as natural medicines for herpes, such as licorice root and garlic. These two plants have antiviral properties. Using naturally occurring remedies to get rid of genital herpes is often more beneficial than using highly potent drugs that may have too many side effects.

Herpes Supplements: Taking vitamin and mineral supplements along with specific anti-herpetic remedies is also a smart alternative in managing your herpes symptoms. These supplements can sometimes consist of a combination of several antiviral ingredients and therefore produce a greater effect in managing your symptoms.

Unfortunately, many purveyors of homeopathic brands out there just don’t seem to know what they are doing. They are either trying to turn homeopathy into a non-existent cure (with no virus left in your body) or just selling so-called blended remedies, which are far from efficient, at a highly inflated price. There is no known cure for herpes. Therefore you can get rid of genital herpes virus with this treatment regime, but what you can surely do is to eliminate its symptoms.

To control your genital herpes symptoms, all you have to do is to modify your lifestyle and diet. Unless you survive on junk food and sodas or beer every day, it does not have to be the too drastic shift. A drastic herpes diet is only necessary at very specific times. However, a healthy lifestyle with no recreational drugs or heavy smoking or drinking is a must. With reasonable adjustments to your diet, lifestyle and the supplements you will do away with the genital herpes whole of your life.
