HERPES SIMPLEX 1
Under a microscope, HSV- 1 and 2 are virtually identical, sharing approximately 50% of their DNA. Both types infect mucus areas of the body, usually the mouth or genitals, and then establish latency in the nervous system. For both types, at least two-thirds of infected people have no symptoms, or symptoms too mild to notice. However, both types can recur and spread even when no symptoms are present.
But be aware that your genitals can become infected with HSV-1 through oral sex if your partner has a cold sore.
It will manifest exactly as HSV-2 in that instance.
It is a common myth that HSV-1 is milder and less dangerous than HSV-2. This is untrue. The reality? HSV-1 is usually mild, especially when it infects the lips, face, or genitals. However, in some cases type 1 can recur spontaneously in the eye, causing ocular herpes, a potentially serious infection which can lead to blindness.
In very rare cases HSV- 1 can spread spontaneously to the brain, causing herpes encephalitis, a dangerous infection that can lead to death. HSV-1 is also the usual cause of herpes whitlow, an infection on the finger, and herpes gladiatorum or "wrestler's herpes" a herpes infection on the chest or face.
HERPES SIMPLEX 2
By comparison, HSV-2 is widely believed to be a painful, dangerous infection that affects only people with very active sex lives. The reality? Some 22% of adult Americans from all backgrounds, income levels, and ethnic groups have HSV-2.The most recent national average is that 4 in 5 American adults have Herpes Simplex.
And even though a diagnosis of HSV-2 can be devastating to the patient, doctors often dismiss it as not being a serious health threat.
According to a study by Wald et al. (New England Journal of Medicine, 1995), among 110 women with genital herpes, the average number of recurrences per year for those with genital HSV-1 was zero. The same statistics were observed in people with oral HSV-2 infections. It seems that because the 2 viruses were specifically designed to reside in a particular hiding place and when they fail to do that, their impact is negligible usually with zero recurrences.
According to the Lafferty study, (Lafferty et al., New England Journal of Medicine, 1987), genital HSV-2 infections were the most frequently recurring herpes infections, followed by oral HSV-1, genital HSV-1, and last of all, oral HSV-2.
Today, most doctors believe that opportunistic viruses such as both Herpes Simplex 1 and 2 only occur in bodies that are not properly oxygenated and hydrated. Dehydration can make such a profound difference because it signals that the body does not have the proper nutrients (which are carried by the red blood cells) to resist an infection.
Oxygen plays such a great role in suppressing opportunistic infections because every cells in the body requires oxygen to survive and thrive. The are no disease-causing pathogens (with very, very few exceptions) that multiply using respiration and require oxygen. Generally a high oxygen environment kills viruses, bacteria, fungii, and other disease-causing microbes.
We have been duped into believing that our immune system must fight off every attacker that comes against our bodies, when in actuality, a properly hydrated and oxygenated body is the first line of defense against disease. (See what the experts have to say.)
Start your own Oxygen Therapy Program. A high oxygen environment may prevent the virus from activating once it comes out of hiding before it can manifest in your body or allow you to unwittingly (through shedding) transmit it to someone else.
So while no one can not say with 100% certainty that oxygen therapy will prevent the transmission of the herpes virus or even kill the virus once it is inside your body, I can say that in the absence of any other curative on the market, it certainly appears that a highly oxygenated body may prevent initial infection and lessen the chance of recurrences once you are infected.
Oxygenate Your Body Today!
Oxygen therapy works so well because viruses and bacteria can not live in high-oxygen environments and your healthy cells can not become infected when they are properly oxygenated.
So what's the link between oxygen-deprivation, viruses and disease? Let's let the experts answer that question.
people ask me why isn't everyone using this safe, simple therapy? Or why
hasn't my doctor told me about it if it works so great? For the answers
to those questions, please see here: H2O2 INFO
And, in all honesty, why should your doctor tell you about this simple compound that will completely eliminate the need to purchase and take hundreds of pharmaceutical pills over your lifetime.
The sad but true fact is that DISEASE IS BIG BUSINESS.
Most people are not aware that the major pharmaceutical companies Merck,Astra-Zeneca, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Bristol-MyersSquibb, and Sanofi-Aventis are the MOST profitable businesses in the world. They build wings and donate millions to hospitals and universities. Their relationship with your doctor is a lot more personal than may be healthy for your good health.
Don't be deceived. The health business has been all about the money for a long, long time!
