How Do I Tell My Husband?

Dear Dr. David,
"This has come out of the blue and I am still stunned with the findings. I have been in a monogamous marriage for 35 years and have no idea where I picked up this virus. For the last two years I have been working with a naturopath and nutritionist to naturally heal a small breast cancer. At Christmas I told my general doctor that I feel better than I have in my life - and now this. It feels like insult to injury...

"I didn't put two and two together until late Sunday when I began thinking about the symptoms that I'd had all week, and on closer inspection I found more red bumps. On Monday morning, after my husband left, I got on the computer and typed in all the symptoms (burning when urinating, low grade fever, general feeling of malaise, achiness up the back of my legs and ankles etc.) and genital herpes came up. Needless to say, I was beyond upset. A visit to a local clinic confirmed my suspicions and now I have to find a way to tell my husband.

"I've had maybe eight lesions, and after reading your book and following your treatment plan, it is beginning to subside. As I said, I have to find a way to tell my husband, but what explanation do I offer? I haven't been unfaithful and I'm sure that neither has he, so where did this come from? I'm hoping that you can offer some explanation as everything else that I've read hasn't been much help. Toilet seats are mentioned, but only as a remote possibility. I suppose the how doesn't really matter, the fact is my life feels forever changed. "

Dear R.,
Being so stunned as you are is normal. Most people feel this way when learning they have herpes. Due so much to the shame attached to having the virus, and also because it is contracted through sexual contact. There is much fear associated with having this as well. You are not alone. Remember this, one-third of Americans have some form of the herpes virus. One-third of Americans have some form of HPV (warts), and one-third of the total of both groups have both warts and herpes. This is a lot of people. This means every third person you see has one of these and every sixth person you see has both. I hope this puts your situation in perspective. This also means that all of these people have an immune system that is unable to handle viral infections well. Their immune system needs help.

What else does this mean? Since your individual situation, dealing with cancer, is involved in the immune system, so is dealing with herpes. For whatever reason, having this infection now is due to your low immune system. And most likely, somewhere in your past you were in genital contact with someone's lips or genitals who was carrying the virus. As you say, you and your husband have been faithful to each other, so this is the only explanation. Therefore, since your exposure, the virus has been lying dormant in your skin cells waiting for an opportunity to emerge. You will need to ask your husband if he is also having problems. You can also look at him yourself first before talking with him. He needs to know. Be gentle on yourself, you have been ill. Your immune system has been down. This gives viruses the opportunity they have been looking for to multiply. This virus "coming out of the blue" is still showing you that you have an immune system that still needs help. Think about this. What about the two-thirds of the population who do not have herpes. I believe their immune system is unable to handle the exposure so they never contract the virus.

Since you have purchased my ebook, both you and your husband need to be on my program. Both of you also need to be taking the herbs I recommend to fight the virus on a daily basis. You can find all the herbs conveniently in my antiviral formula.

Will I Be Able to Safely Have Children?

Will your product keep you from passing the virus to others and will I be able to safely have children? Will I have to tell anyone that I have this at all if I use your system.
Need to Know

Dear Jay,
Be sure you go to and read the FAQ page. Especially read the last question and answer. Everyone you come in contact with has the right to know you have had herpes. If you start on my program you will be able to tell them how long it has been since you had an outbreak. The longer the better. As a man, you can safely have children. As a woman, it is possible to have a normal birth if she does not have an active infection at the time. If she is in an active outbreak at the time, that is when doctors recommend a Caesarian birth.

What my program is all about, hence the title, is Stop Herpes Now And From Coming Back For Good. I mean it. No more outbreaks! You need to be on my program and my antiviral formula if you want to stay free of herpes outbreaks. Trust me, this works. Do NOT simply rely on something topical. Just applying something topical is NOT enough. You need to know the foods not to eat, the herbs to take internally, and the supplements to take to keep herpes outbreaks from coming back.

My program has hope and promise for real.

Why doesn't my doctor prescribe these herbs?

This is a great question! I am glad you asked. The answer is simple. Herbal medicine is not something most doctors (MD) are interested in or educated. Medical doctors, also call allopaths, are only educated in pharmaceutical medicine. Therefore, they graduate only having learned what drugs to prescribe for which disease. Most medical schools have very little or no herbal medical education for doctors. Herbal medicine has been around for centuries. The success of herbal medicines threatens the hold that pharmaceutical companies have on medicine today. No one person or company can patent an herb. When herbal medicine becomes more widely accepted, the pharmaceutical companies will loose billions of dollars in future profits of drug sales. There are so many studies that show the effectiveness of the herbs I recommend for fighting herpes as well as other viruses. These herbs have been around well before since herbal medicine was even known as medicine. It has only been in the last 15-20 years that more and more studies have been performed to prove herbal medicine is as or more effective than pharmaceutical medicines. Pharmaceutical medications are synthetic. Herbal medicines are as natural as nature intended. Which do you prefer to put into your body? I choose natural. Every time!

Why don’t we see herbal medicine being advertised like over-the-counter and prescription medication?
The FDA approves or disapproves what is allowed by companies to claim in advertising for a product’s treatment of disease. It takes millions of dollars to put a drug or herb through this process of approval. The drug can be patented. The company’s drug has the potential for making millions or billions of dollars in profits for that company. This is why the pharmaceutical companies can afford to put a drug through that process. They are willing to invest the risk with the potential making billions of dollars. No one herbal company has the resources to put any one or all the herbs through the FDA process in order to have an herb be listed as treatment for a particular disease. Herbal companies cannot charge for the herbs the pharmaceutical companies can charge for pharmaceutical medications. What herbal companies can afford to do is conduct studies through independent naturopathic and acupuncture schools for the effectiveness of herbal medicines. Other medical schools are conducting studies also. Some studies come from Europe. The herbs are tested in double blind placebo controlled studies and outcome based studies. I list some of these studies in my references in my ebook, Stop Herpes Now And From Coming Back For Good.

My New Partner Now Has Herpes

Dear Dr. David,
I have recently been informed by my partner of only a few weeks that he has just been diagnosed with having genital herpes. I will be going to my g.p as soon as possible to get checked out. However i am wondering how likely it is that it has been passed onto me. I have no symptoms that i can tell. Could you also please tell me how long herpes can lie dormant in a male without him being aware that he has it?
Yours sincerly,
R. (England)

Dear R.,
It is very good you are getting yourself checked. The usual incubation period can range from 1-28 days. Most often transmission occurs with open eruptions, mostly. Transmission can occur with what is called viral shedding. Where skin cells that contain the virus are picked up by the person who comes in contact. As far as just how long it can really lie dormant? Who really knows? The first herpes outbreak will usually happen after a stressful event, and it can also occur following exposure. A person's immune system can have been keeping the virus in check until a stressful event occurs, then they suddenly discover they have herpes and have been carrying it for a time.

Please do not take what I am telling you and use it against what your new partner is saying. Every person's situation is different.

The best thing for yourself is to learn how to keep from contracting it for one, then two, learn how to treat it naturally. The likelyhood of your partner passing it on to you is slim IF it has been a while since he has had an outbreak. Viral shedding can still occur, but the chances are slim. So that you both stay healthy, the best thing the 2 of you can do is to get on my treatment program and stay on it. That will help you both stay healthy and herpes free.

We Both Have Herpes. What Do We Do?

Dr. David,
Both me and my partner have genital herpes. Is it safe for us to have unprotected sex with each other or should we still use protection?

Dear Angel,

If you both have the same exact strain of genital herpes then it is safer than if you have different strains. Your doctor can test you both to find out the strains you both are carrying. The trouble comes when one of you has an outbreak and the other does not. Because, the one who does not can contract a new active infection even over night. If you are both healthy at the time, it is much safer. As you know, you can both become healthy by getting on my program
Stop Herpes Now. While you are both without any outbreaks, taking the herbs and supplements I recommend, and eating the way I have laid out, then I feel I can give you both a green light to have unprotected sex.

If you have different herpes strains, then you are both at risk of contracting the others strain and you should both treat your interactions as if one of you does not have herpes and so then should take the necessary precautions. You can end up giving each other another strain of the herpes virus. Then, you would both have a double infection. If you were not following my program or had a stressful event thereby causing you to have an outbreak, both strains would be causing you problems. Not Good. I do believe however, that the risk of any of the above happening greatly decreases while you are on my program. As I have said before, there is still a chance of passing the herpes virus to your partner while you are in remission, but the chance is small. I suggest you both stay on my program religiously.
Stop Herpes Now.

Can I Still Kiss And Enjoy Relationships?

Dr David,
I would like to know if i kiss any one or smoke the same cigarette after anyone, can they get herpes? I just got herpes and I need to know things about it and I would like to know if you can tell me some things about it so I can be on the safe side. And, how will I be able to still have sex and be with another person? so if you please abon help me i would love to know. --L.

Dear L,
Yes, you can still do all the things in a relationship that anyone without herpes can do, however with some precautions. Herpes travels from moist skin to moist skin. So yes, it is possible if you are sharing cigarettes with someone, they could potentially become infected with the herpes virus. More so if you have an active infection than if you are currently in remission. If you are in remission, there is still a slim possibility that someone could still contract herpes from you, but much less likely. Having a blister is when you are most infectious. The virus will be active and waiting for you to kiss or have oral sex with someone to spread itself. Before kissing or sharing cigarettes, it is best to wait until you are in remission. If you have oral herpes, then the best prevention for the other person during oral sex is by using a dental dam. You can find dental dams at
Condomania. For those who have genital herpes, the best protection for intercourse is using female condoms. The give much safer and more protective coverage than condoms and can also be found at Condomania.

To reiterate myself and to state again. There is still a chance while you are in remission of passing the virus on to your partner without protection. It is a slim chance but still know there is a chance.

The best way to go into and stay in remission is by following my program. You will learn what foods trigger and feed the virus, what antiviral herbs and supplements suppress the virus and keep it from coming back for good.

L, the best thing you can do to protect yourself and your partners is to go now to and get my program. You and your partners will be glad you did. You will no longer have those anoying outbreaks that slow down your intimate love life. You will not get this from your MD. Natural medicine doctors like myself understand that treating herpes or any disease requires a holistic approach employing diet therapy, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements while avoiding the harmful side effects of prescription medication. Remember, you also receive a free sample of my antiherpes antiviral herbal formula. It contains all the herbs I recommend in my program to fight and suppress the herpes virus.

Blessings to you and be safe.

Got the flu? My antiviral formula also works for the flu virus!

Do you have or know anyone who has the flu? Do you wish to take something for flu prevention?

I am personally not a fan of the flu shot because of all the carrier ingredients it contains. You can read about the ingredients here; to read my November 2004 newsletter from my practice website. I believe you will find it very informative.

Whether or not you decide to receive a flu vaccine, you will still need some other flu protection. My antiviral formula also works great on the flu virus. It suppresses the virus from being able to replicate itself freely while your immune system is updating itself with new viral antibodies. That process usually takes about 7 days for your body to create its own antiviral antibodies. Go here to order now;

Is herpes safe with a condom?

A condom protects you from all sexually transmitted diseases, but only where you are wearing the condom. If someone has herpes in the groin area or other than in the vagina or on the penis, then it is possible to transmit the virus. So, you see it matters where someone might have the infections occurring. Every person may have them on a different area of skin. Therefore, it is important to discuss this prior to having intercourse. Remember, viral shedding can still occur even if someone does not have an active infection. This happens from skin cells shedding that contain the virus that become transmitted to the person that you contacted.

Remember, herpes also can be transmitted by kissing and oral sex. This is how oral herpes can become genital herpes. And, visa versa. It matters not whether the virus is simplex I or II.The best thing a person can do is to boost their immune system so that their immune system will begin to handle the virus on its own. What is the best way to do that you ask? Simple, follow my program, and you will be doing just that. My program recommends the combination of diet therapy, supplements, and herbal antivirals. You will need the antiviral herbs I recommend. They are the ones most proven to suppress viral replication. This means that the virus will no longer be multiplying itself inside your body. All these things are in the approach I use which is from naturopathic medicine. Remember, you receive a sample of my antiviral herbal formula with your purchase of the ebook.

I Am HSV-II Positive, No Outbreaks But I Am Upset!

I just purchased your e-book and am writing to follow up in regard to your treatment that comes up with the purchase. With regard to my situation, I recently tested positive to the HSV-II antibody in my blood and to say the least have been quite upset about it. I am 35 years of age, educated, healthy, strong, take daily vitamin supplements, and have never had any physical manifestations of HSV-II. I have been reading and tryiing to learn as much as possible about this as possible so that I can lead a normal, healthy, and full life. Please advise.

I understand you are upset. Being upset usually means people are being hard on themselves for coming down with the virus, and resentful towards the person they contracted it from. This only causes stress in your body and does you no good. One-third of all americans have some form of the herpes simplex virus. So, now you are one of them and you are not alone. Accept it, learn how to prevent outbreaks like in my program, Stop Herpes Now. Then, you can go forward with your life.
I have a great idea for you. Take my antiviral formula and the supplements at low daily doses for prevention. Make sure to follow the diet. By taking the herbs
and supplements daily will certainly help you to prevent ever having an outbreak. When you prepare to be intimate with a partner, let them know you have the virus, and tell them how long you have been free of the outbreaks by taking my formula and following my program. Then, get them on the same program so that they may never have an outbreak or end up being tested positive too. Best of wishes to you on your health.
