Herpes Simplex is a virus. It is on the scale of viruses including the common cold, Epstein-Barr and at the very far right of the spectrum, auto-immune deficiency Syndrome ( AIDS).. Because it can lay dormant in the body for many years without surfacing, herpes is known as an “envelope” virus. Your state of health is a large part of the viruses ability to surface and cause blisters, neurological pain and exhaustion.
With adequate tissue Calcium, the virus has a difficult time surfacing. In order to transfer Calcium from our gut into the blood stream, we need Vitamin D. In order to transfer Calcium from the blood stream into the tissues requires polyunsaturated fatty acids, known in my office as Cataplex F. Without the proper fatty acids in the body, Calcium cannot get into the tissue and provide an environment that the herpes virus cannot grow in.
Tissue calcium does not only involve herpes, but must also be looked at if you have canker sores in the mouth or polyps in the nose or rectal area. Any tissue disorder requires Calcium and Fatty Acids to nourish the tissue.
So, getting sunshine is great for producing Vitamin D and transporting Calcium from the gut into the bloodstream, but transporting Calcium into the tissue requires further nutritional considerations—polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Foods that contain polyunsaturated fatty acids:
- fats and oils:
- safflower, linoeic, grapeseed
So, if you suffer from Herpes Simplex or chronic canker sores, avoid all processed foods that destroy the natural fatty acid bond, use Cataplex D, Cataplex F and Calcium Lactate on a daily basis for six months to renourish the tissue near or on the surface of your body.
