Herpes

Use this protocol to manage outbreaks:

Osha Root – 6-15 drops 3 times daily
Osha root is a Rocky Mountain herb, and has been used by the Native Americans for treating respiratory infections and conditions of the digestive system. Today the herb is used in alternative medicine for treating colds and symptoms of viral infections. Osha root extract also induces sweating, and for fevers that will not go away, it works to kick out viral infections before they can become full blown. It is known for its diuretic action, and may help to relieve urinary problems such as, stones and excess retained water. Like other bitter herbs, Osha stimulates appetite “feeds a cold”. 

Many people struggle daily with mucus and congestion problems, and it is a wonder that the benefits of Osha root tinctures are not more well-known. The herb can help to clear mucus from the sinuses and lungs, thereby helping to relieve congestion and make breathing much easier. It contains a number of volatile oils, including camphor, essential oils, saponins, terpenes, ferulic acid, phytoesterols and lactone glycoside. It has been found to have the ability to elevate body temperature and induce sweating. It is used for such conditions as head colds with dry or wet cough, irritating coughs, sore throats, bronchial infections, early stages of tonsillitis, pneumatic complaints and pharyngitis. Also helpful in asthma to keep the lungs clear and the bronchials dilated. Combined with Echinacea against leukocytosis, an increase in white blood cells, it can be extremely beneficial as a powerful antiviral, and antibacterial herb, but mild for the other body systems. 

It has been used internally in the treatment of digestive complaints, painful menstruation and retained placenta. It has also been used to in cases of TB and headaches. An infusion of the roots is used externally to treat body aches. It aches like a mild anesthetic and numbs the area to reduce toothache pain. 

Ingredients: Osha Root, Distilled Water, 20% Alcohol.

Non-Alcohol: Osha Root and Vegetable Glycerin.

Instructions: Use 6-15 drops in juice, water, under the tongue or as desired. May be taken 3 times daily. Shake well. Store in cool dark place. Keep out of reach of children.

Contraindications: Pregnant and nursing women should not use Osha Root as it may act as an abortive in the first five days of pregnancy. It should not be used by those who have impaired or inflamed kidneys. Do not use if you have edema (swelling) as a result of kidney or heart disease. Excessive use (many times the recommended dosage) may cause kidney damage.

Osha is a plant. Historically, the root has been used as medicine by Native American and Hispanic cultures.

Today, osha is used for sore throat, bronchitis, cough, common cold, influenza, swine flu, and pneumonia. It is also used to treat other viral infections including herpes and AIDS/HIV. Some people use it for indigestion.

Some people apply osha directly to the skin to keep wounds from getting infected.

Be careful not to confuse osha with the very poisonous plant hemlock. The leaves of the two plants are very similar. Osha must be identified by the root, which people say has an unpleasant celery-like odor. Be sure to buy osha from a reputable source, so you can feel confident that the product really is osha.

Osha grows at higher elevations in the western US and is difficult to cultivate. The popularity of osha has led to over-harvesting of the wild plant. As a result, osha has been designated an endangered plant by conservationists.

OSHA Uses & Effectiveness What is this?

How does it work?

Osha contains chemicals that might help fight bacterial and viral infections.

Some people think of chickenpox as a dangerous health condition, especially among children. But it is not life-threatening. In fact, it is actually nature’s elegant design to defend you against a more problematic disease – shingles.

  According to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC),1  shingles is more common in individuals over age 50 who have had chickenpox in the past, although those who are immunocompromised are also at risk. Fortunately, exposing yourself to the chickenpox virus in your childhood years—as well as developing it early on—may significantly lower your risk of developing shingles.

Shingles: A Reactivation of the Chickenpox Infection

Chickenpox and shingles are caused by similar viruses, both belonging to the herpesvirus family. The former is caused by the Varicella zoster virus, which is associated with Herpes zoster, the virus responsible for shingles 

    When you get chickenpox and recover from it, the virus can remain dormant in your nerve roots for years. The virus may reawaken through physical or emotional stress and resurface as shingles. Certain medications such as steroids (like prednisone), chemotherapy, and radiation may also set off shingles – whether you are over 50 years old or not.

    Chickenpox is a contagious mild disease where small round lesions appear on your skin. These cause intense itching. On the other hand, shingles is characterized inflammation of the nerves and a painful blistering rash. Shingles is not contagious, but it can still infect a person who hasn’t had chickenpox. When this happens, the virus manifests as chickenpox instead of shingles.

The Vicious 2 to 4 Week Shingles Outbreak

    The first sign of shingles is unilateral tingling, itching, or stabbing pain on your skin, on one side of your face or body. This is followed by a painful red, blistering skin rash on your skin. The infection runs its course within three to five weeks. Once shingles clears up, patients may experience numbness, skin discoloration, and permanent scars.

    However, in people with weakened immune systems, shingles may progress into severe and life-threatening problems. About 20 percent pf of shingles cases may result to a condition called post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN), where pain may last from 30 days to even years after the rash has healed.

Other less frequent complications that the shingles infection may cause include:

Bacterial skin infectionsHutchinson’s signRamsay Hunt Syndrome (Herpes zoster oticus)
Brain inflammation (encephalitis)Bell’s Palsy or motor neuropathyPneumonia
MeningitisHearing lossVision problems like glaucoma, cataracts, or permanent blindness
Bladder impairmentDeath

If you’re currently struggling with shingles, it is best to avoid the prescription drug route. Normally, physicians prescribe drugs to help treat herpes outbreaks, but oftentimes, medications are followed by adverse effects.

    Natural strategies like applying honey on the affected area have proven to be effective against shingles, along with other herpes infections. This sweet food has been used as conventional treatment for infection up until the early 20th century, when penicillin was introduced.

    However, not all types of honey are successful in suppressing infections. Some varieties have 100 times more potent antibacterial activity, while others contribute to the spread of microbes. I strongly advise you to avoid processed, refined honey found at most grocery stores, as it will only worsen your infection – whether consumed or applied topically.

On the other hand, raw honey has been approved for medical use because of its healing properties. High-quality raw honey is beneficial in treating wounds because it draws fluid away from the wound and has high sugar content that inhibits the growth of harmful microorganisms.

Bees also secrete a special enzyme called glucose oxidase, which causes honey to produce low levels of hydrogen peroxide when it comes into contact with your wound.

    Manuka honey, a high-quality variety that originated from New Zealand, has all of these wound-healing properties, along with antimicrobial qualities. Clinical trials have found that Manuka honey, produced from the pollen gathered from flowers of the Manuka bush, can eliminate up to 250 strains of bacteria – including antibiotic-resistant ones like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

    I recommend applying Manuka honey in semifluid form directly to the affected area at least four times a day. The goal is to keep the sores constantly bathed in honey.
  In addition to honey, here are other natural remedies that work well in treating herpes infections:

Symplex powder at the first sign of outbreaks by making a paste with the colloidal silver water and apply directly to outbreak. A powder that you mix with colloidal silver water and Manuka Honey to make a paste to put directly on outbreaks at the very first sign.

L-Lysinehelps to inhibit the growth of viruses. It is necessary for calcium absorption and for the formation of collagen (collagen is a fibrous protein which makes up bone, cartilage and other connective tissue). Take 1000mg per day between outbreaks and 3000mg. during outbreaks.

Vitamin C is also necessary for collagen formation, and a deficiency in either of these results in poor healing wounds and a greater susceptibility to infections. Take 4000mg per day between outbreaks and during outbreaks 6000mg.

Pregnenolone-Improves resistance to stress and adrenal exhaustion, fatigue, and balances moods. Also enhances memory and improves nerve impulse transmission. Helps improve spinal cord injuries.

Gaba-Use for anxiety, stress, brain function, and ADD. It is also useful in enlarged prostate, because it plays a role in the mechanism of regulating the release of sex hormones.
