Natural Cold Sores Treatment – Alkalinize Your Body to Cure Your Cold Sores with The Right Nutrition
Cold sores can be detected early if you can make yourself aware of the warning signs. Common signals such as tingling, itching and warmth at the point of occurrence should be an indicator of cold sore developing. This phase lasts for several hours and is the best time to take precautions.
During this phase the infected area should not be touched. Touching or itching will act as a catalyst for the virus to spread to other parts. In case you want to touch, it would be advisable to clean the surface with anti – bacterial agent and then wipe it with cotton.
Nutrition plays a very important role in making the herpes simplex virus dormant. Good exercise and dietary habits need to be followed if you want to make the virus dormant. It is very important to understand that simple slight changes in food habits will improve the alkaline content in your body thus making the virus dormant for very long periods, if not the rest of your life.
The herpes simplex virus needs an acidic climate to thrive and multiply. A balanced dietary approach between acidic and alkaline foods will help you in getting the much needed respite from herpes simplex virus type 1. Diet restriction is very important because it can actually make the virus dormant. Do consult a nutritionist before taking any advice.
Some of the foods which should be reduced or completely avoided are as follows:
Pork, shellfish, margarine products, artificial sweeteners, junk food, mayonnaise, caffeine, MSG, high fat dairy products, alcohol, saturated fat foods, etc. Chocolates should be completely avoided by people suffering from the herpes simplex virus. This virus can also get triggered from artificial sweeteners because of the chemicals and various kinds of preservatives used in them.
Foods which have a high fibre content are good for the heart and also for the increasing metabolism. Care should be taken to avoid acidic foods when you are suffering from herpes simplex virus. Juices, water and milk are the best ways to stay healthy and fit. Caffeine can be consumed in a limited quantity if you are in the habit of drinking it a lot and smoking should be totally avoided.
Natural Cold Sores Treatment – Curing Cold Sores by Increasing the Amount of Oxygen Your Body Processes
Cold sores are a contagious disease residing in the host body. Normally it starts as a small lump and then it bulges out and forms a blister which is painful, oozing and contagious. This blister is not a pretty sight as it is usually on the face and it swells and forms a red spot which grows into a bigger lump before passing into remission. This virus may lie dormant for years or it may attack you every month.
Some of the early symptoms that the virus is getting ready to flare up are a tingling feeling and then a small lump which eventually develops into a bigger lump. This bigger lump may not swell but in some cases a small lump swells up and presents a nasty oozing sore. Many people find it emotionally disturbing to find this lump right at the corner of the lip.
As we know, humans need oxygen for basic bodily functions. Oxygen contains certain properties which help in metabolism. Without these basic functions the human body cannot continue to live. Lack of oxygen in the blood cells causes diseases to be able to run rampant.
Disease causing bacteria and virus tend to survive in conditions where there is low amount of oxygen. Herpes simplex virus type 1 cannot be destroyed by increasing the amount of oxygen levels in the body but it can be made dormant.
Oxygen supplements are generally recommended by doctors all over the world. Alternate medicine consultants also recommend medications and oxygen supplement drops. These oxygen supplement drops are easily absorbed by the body due to their fluid state. These drops are available in pharmacies and from chemists and over the internet as over the counter drugs.
Increased level of nascent oxygen is very helpful for other body process such as digestion, increased level of energy, blood flow, immune system, etc. Oxygen is a free radical scavenger and it is known to cure many diseases caused by anaerobic bacteria in the body without damaging the tissue and aerobic bacteria.
Oxygen supplement drops do not have any smell and they do not tend to cause a nauseous feeling. These drops react with the stomach acid to produce nascent oxygen which is readily absorbed by the body, thus helping to make the herpes simplex virus dormant for long time.
