Hello, I have been on your product for almost two weeks now and I'm seeing amazing results. I've read that I can take it for two months and then stop as long as I follow your diet recommendations but could find what those recommendations are. I only eat fish and chicken with an occasional steak(3 times a year) and drink almond milk, and eat lots of vegetables.

Herpes is characterized in Traditional Chinese Medicine as dampness with heat and toxic pathogens. In Paul Pitchford's book HEALING WITH WHOLE FOODS he suggests a regeneration diet for at least 6 months. The regeneration consists of primarily grains, vegetables seaweeds, legumes, sprouts, micro-algae, omega 3 and GLA foods and oils, with only a small amount of spices. This diet will include a small amount of raw vegetables or sprouts if desired, but most food is cooked moderately or mildly. Seaweeds are taken unless there is diarrhea. There may be supplementation with fish or other animal products if necessary. Proportions of foods in the diet 45% grains; 35% vegetables; 15% beans and other legumes and 5% other recommended foods. In this regeneration diet it is important to emphasize avoiding all intoxicants (including coffee and tobacco) , all concentrated sweeteners, all fruits (including tomatoes), all nuts (especially peanuts) and oil bearing seeds except flax seed and it's cold pressed oil. Also avoid sesame oil (small amounts of olive oil are accepted). Spirulina provokes dampness , however chlorella and wild blue-green algaes are often helpful. A fter six months if the lesions have not appeared for at least six weeks, one may begin to include fruit, goat - dairy products, and small amounts of other animal products. I also want include a quick note on supplements. One very common supplement Lysine is often used, this amino acid may suppress the frequency of external symptoms, however, lysine use inhibits the formation of arginine, an amino acid essential to the manufacture of white blood cells, which plays a vital role in immunity.

When the lip type cold sore is blistered, is it a good or bad idea to pop open the blister and remove the fluid?

A good question. It is not recommended to squeeze, pinch, pick or pop bisters to drain fluid because of the chance of re-infection to other areas of exposed skin tissue. Our free manual contains detailed information about the treatment and maintenance of this disorder.

Are there any chapsticks that help prevent or heal cold sores quicker?

Your idea is good, however the problem with a chapstick is the possibility of infecting other areas of healthy skin tissue. ZENMED® has now developed AvaCare as a topical spray for the inflammation and pain.
