Successfully Preventing Herpes Outbreaks

In this piece, we will focus on steps you can take to prevent herpes outbreaks without the use of medication. The fact of the matter is that there are many people who suffer from herpes in terms of having the herpes virus in their bodies, but who never have any outbreaks.

Why should you be any different from them? The reality is that you should not focus on why you are different from them. Instead, you should take steps to become more like them. After all, your goal is to avoid having any more herpes outbreaks!

There are two important elements to consider with respect to avoiding herpes outbreaks. In its dormant state, the virus resides deep in the central nervous system. Here it is out of the reach of the immune system, which is why herpes is permanent. The immune system doesn’t even know it needs to be fighting the virus because it cannot detect it.

However, in its normal habitat in the nervous system the virus is really not causing any problems. So your primary goal is to avoid causing a triggering event. A triggering event is any event which causes a portion of the virus to surface from the nervous system.

It is the emerging virus which causes you to suffer from outbreaks. So if you can avoid the surfacing you will avoid outbreaks. One of the biggest triggers is stress and anxiety. Extreme physical activity or trauma to the body can also be a factor.

There are many natural steps you can take to address the many triggers of the virus. The more of these you implement, the more successful you will be at keeping the virus dormant. People who never have outbreaks have that characteristic. For some it is entirely natural, but for many others tangible steps they have taken have been successful!

The next element for avoiding outbreaks deals with those times when, for whatever reason, a portion of the virus actually surfaces. In this case, the goal is to make the environment which the virus encounters as hostile as possible.

Generally, people who suffer frequent or prolonged outbreaks have metabolisms which the virus finds attractive. Thus, steps to modify the metabolism to make it less attractive for the virus are beneficial and effective.

Natural approaches to achieve this goal are more effective than prescription approaches. Many individuals, through diet, general health, and probiotics use, have been successful in transforming their metabolic balance.

Probiotics can also be described as helpful bacteria. Not all bacteria is the enemy! For those who need to adjust their metabolism in order to create a more hostile environment, this strategy is worth exploring.
