With more than two-thirds of the entire population under the age of 50 being infected with herpes, it’s no wonder there are hundreds different HSV treatments available today. A quick Google search of “herpes cure” reveals numerous websites offering natural protocols, treatments, and pills that, supposedly, can help you get rid of herpes forever. Sounds too good to be true? Well, that’s because it probably isn’t. As of now, there is no FDA approved cure for herpes. Once a person gets infected, his immune system will produce antibodies that stay in the blood forever. So if theoretically, a person was cured of herpes, a regular blood test would still detect those antibodies in his body.
No one can tell you this for sure. There are several companies working on a vaccine at the moment. But even if one of the vaccines gets approval, there is still a very slim chance that it would, in fact, cure herpes rather than just treat symptoms. Because of all the misinformation floating around, many people think that they will have to take herpes medication for the rest of their lives. And that’s right here is what we consider to be one of the biggest herpes scams. People are looking for an easy solution, and they are made to believe that pills can make herpes go away. Soon they stop worrying about transmitting the virus and become irresponsible. Keep in mind, that even if you don’t have any herpes symptoms, you can still pass it to other people through asymptomatic shedding. Antiviral medications cannot make herpes go away; they can only relieve painful symptoms. These types of drugs weaken the immune system, which may lead to more frequent and severe herpes outbreaks in the future. And if you’ve taken antiviral drugs before, then you probably already know all about the terrible side effects they may cause.
Scam of being socially ashamed of herpes
Herpes affects not only physical but also mental health. From the moment you find out you have herpes, you start feeling ashamed of yourself. Our society has made us believe that herpes is some nasty virus and that we need to stay away from those who have it. Don’t fall for that lie. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. Having herpes is not something that should stop you from having a normal relationship and sex life. You just need to learn how to live with HSV. There are ways to control the virus and live outbreak free (we’ve recently talked about this topic here). Don’t expect it to happen overnight just by taking some magical pill.
Most people don’t realize how important it is to keep the immune system strong if they want to get rid of herpes, or any other virus for that matter. Have you ever wondered why some people suffer from awful HSV outbreaks each and every month, and others go years and even decades without having one? The answer is simple: those who take care of their health and don’t rely on drugs have a much better chance of getting rid of herpes and having a normal life.
What can be considered as a scam and what is not?
Let’s take a look at some of the herpes treatments and medications available on the market today.
First, there are pills approved by FDA and prescribed by many doctors. We’ve talked about them earlier. They help ease symptoms, but can’t cure herpes. Therefore, it’s not a long-term solution.
Then, there are pills not approved by FDA. Those are considered illegal and may be dangerous for you. Not worth the risk.
Also, there are natural supplements and remedies. They are not considered to be drugs, therefore do not require FDA approval. However, for that reason, these supplements cannot be labeled as “cure” or “treatment”. They can be very effective in boosting the immune system.
Lastly, there are various herpes protocols. Some of them are created by doctors, and others simply use information found on the Internet just to make money off it. Many protocols are based on personal experience and offer programs that focus on lifestyle and diet changes and use of natural treatments. These programs are praised by millions of people, and many believe that they are more effective in relieving herpes symptoms and preventing outbreaks than antiviral medications. Most protocols cost much less that traditional treatments – around $20-50 – and offer a money-back guarantee.
So how can you avoid herpes cure scams on the Internet?
Do your research. Read reviews, both good and bad ones. Always look for products that offer a refund – that usually means they are legit. Give it a try and see how it goes.
Sadly, many people are either too lazy or scared to take charge of their health. But at some point, you have to realize that no one’s going to do it for you. You have two options here: either continue doing nothing and become a social and sexual outcast because of your problem, or learn what you can do to make herpes symptoms and outbreaks go away. If you don’t know where to start, there are several great programs out there that can help you regain health and get rid of herpes naturally. Don’t wait for someone else to come and solve your problems, start acting today and become a better version of yourself in just a few short weeks.
