For many years, herpes disease has been a serious health problem faced by many people in the U.S. and around the world.
Unfortunately, there is no FDA approved herpes cure. According to WHO, 3.7 billion people under the age of 50 have oral herpes, and 417 million people aged 15-49 suffer from genital herpes. Antiviral medications including Acyclovir, Famciclovir, and Valacyclovir, are considered to be effective for people suffering from HSV. In many cases, medication can help reduce the frequency and severity of symptoms, but cannot cure the virus itself.
The video covers research on 4 ingredients which include resveratrol, lysine, curcumin, and quercetin found in common fruits, nuts, and greens. It has shown to be effective in fighting HSV-1 (oral herpes) and HSV-2 (genital herpes) strains to help sufferers get their life back. The studies mentioned in the video were conducted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Southern California University; and the links to the studies were provided by Melanie.

Anna said, "It's very interesting. We still know very little about the potential of alternative medicine. Many times natural remedies are more effective and healthier than conventional medicine".
"Herpes is one of the biggest threats to newborns, I don't understand why doctors don't see the huge issue here." - Jake commented.

However, she stated that they have a no judgment rule and try to answer as many questions as possible, which sometimes can be quite difficult due to the enormous amount of spam.
