Kill Herpes with Garlic

The two forms of Herpes simplex, HSV-1 and HSV-2 are viral infections that create painful blisters either on the mouth or genital region.  Antibiotics only treat bacteria and are not effective against herpes, which is a virus.  Garlic, on the other hand is effective against viruses.  Garlic kills viruses upon direct contact, including those responsible for viral meningitis, viral pneumonia, as well as herpes infections.

Cold Sores (Herpes simplex HSV-1)

At the first sign of an outbreak, take garlic orally.  The best form is raw, minced, with your food, as often as possible.  Herpes on the mouth, or cold sores, once erupted, can also be treated directly with garlic.  The safest way to do that in order not to burn the surrounding skin, is to crush or scrape a clove of garlic and add a few drops of olive oil.  Apply regularly, and watch the cold sore shrink and disappear.

Genital Herpes (Herpes simplex HSV-2)

Dr. Tari Abdullah, a garlic researcher at the Panama City, Florida Akbar Clinic and Research Center, reported that serious outrbreaks of genital herpes could be controlled by taking garlic orally (Prevention Magazine, August, 1987).  For a direct contact approach, a hot sitz bath of 20 minutes is also recommended  (The Healing Power of Garlic, by Paul Bergner).

Sitz Bath for Genital Herpes

To prepare a sitz bath, chop a  bulb of garlic and pour a quart of boiling water over it.  Let it cool to room temperature.  Pour into a shallow basin or tub, with just enough additional water  to cover the anal and genital areas.  Sit in it for around 10-20 minutes.

From the inside and out, use garlic regularly at the first signs of an outbreak.  Make garlic a regular part of a healthy diet.  Include it daily in your meals!  Garlic not only kills the herpes virus during an eruption, but also strengthens the immune system to fend off future outbreaks!

Note:  Herpes is considered “incurable,” meaning that once you are infected, the virus remains in the body, hidden deep in the nerve cells.  Outbreaks of herpes frequently occur during times of physical or emotional stress and fatigue, lowered immunity and immune-suppression, during mild or severe illness, including surgery and HIV infection.

I just had an outbreak of Cold Sore in my lower lip, it was recurrent every year for the past 10 years, I always had used Aciclovir and it lasted for a few days and got cured. I learned about Garlic to cure Cold sores and used a half clove cut by the longest part and applied directly to the sores, it burned a little bit but in less than an hour the pin was gone and now they are drying up. Seems that this is the best cure I have found and are eating now a raw clove of garlic before each meal, this will kill all viruses that remain in my body. Thanks for this great post.

Friends few months back I got infected with HSV 1 & HSV 2 Virus, that’s Herpes. Garlic seems to a very natural & effective and cost free cure for Herpes. I have started a new routine where I would peel off half of garlic ball (about 5-6 cloves) put them in a blender with half glass of water, make a garlic water shake and drink it. Plan to do it for next 6 months. Will go back then for lab tests to see results.

Thank you so much for the post. I can only assume as a child someone unknowingly past on the HSV1 to me, as I have suffered all my life. I was taking Lysine to control the outbreaks and do not eat chocolate(my favorite food) at all! With this information, I can naturally kill the virus and keep raw garlic for any sudden outbreaks. Again, thank you!
