Herpes Treatment (HSV and HSV 2) with Ozone Therapy
What is the Herpes Virus?
Herpes can be grouped into two types– herpes type 1 (HSV-1, oral herpes) and herpes type 2 (HSV-2, genital herpes). HSV-1 typically involves cold sores or blistering around the mouth and lips. While HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, it is typically HSV-2 that causes herpes on the genitals or rectum.
Causes of Herpes Infection, Transmission and Outbreaks
Herpes type 1 is transmitted through oral sores, and can be spread through kissing, as well as sharing toothbrushes, glasses, silverware etc. The virus typically survives for short periods of time outside of the host, but can live on surfaces for up to 8 weeks. Herpes type 2, on the other hand, is solely transmitted through sexual contact with someone who has the HSV-2 infection. It is important to note that even if no sores are currently present, the herpes virus is still active and can be spread to others.
For most individuals who have contracted herpes, the virus has periods of dormancy and outbreaks. Attacks or outbreaks can be brought on by a series of stressors including:
- General illness
- Emotional and physical stress
Most often, the herpes simplex virus can be diagnosed based on its appearance, and does not require further testing. If necessary, the herpes simplex virus can also be diagnosed using lab tests (DNA or PCR tests), as well as virus cultures.
What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy is the process of administering ozone gas into the body, typically to treat a disease and/or wound. Ozone is a colorless gas that is made of 3 oxygen atoms (O3) that are bound together by energy. Ozone-oxygen mixtures have been reported in scientific journals to inactivate microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Ozone increases metabolism of oxygen, regulates oxidative stress, metabolic regulator, immunological modulator, and broad-spectrum germicide. Data suggests that a wide range of viruses can be inactivated through ozone exposure. The results of Ozone therapy also point to a reduction of viral infectivity.
Treatment: How Can Ozone – help?
Ozone therapy is commonly and effectively used to treat the Herpes virus. Some benefits of Ozone therapy for the Herpes Virus Include:
- Decreased viral and bacterial load
- Systemic anti-inflammatory
- Decreased joint pain
Ozone therapy is also really great for treating a number of different conditions, including cancer, acne, eye conditions, migraines, and arthritis.
Pairing Ozone therapy with the Myers Cocktail or Immune Booster Infusion is very helpful, as these have high doses of vitamin C, lysine, zinc, and glutathione, along with many other ingredients that are beneficial for treatment.
