When will we see a herpes cure?

As a feature of CNNhealth.com, our team of expert doctors will answer readers' questions. Here's a question for Dr. Gupta.

From Lloyd Bartley, Bowling Green, Kentucky

“How close are scientists to developing a cure for herpes, figuratively speaking will we be seeing a break through in 10, 20, or even 30 years?”

Answer:

Well, Lloyd, there is good news and bad news on the herpes front. The good news: Researchers have made serious strides and now better understand the mechanism behind herpes outbreaks. The bad news: There is very little funding for that research.

After receiving your question we reached out to a leading herpes expert, Bryan Cullen, the director at the Center for Virology at Duke University. Cullen is hopeful that a cure for herpes could come within 10 years, once funding hurdles are crossed.

Nearly one in five people over age 12 in the U.S. is affected by herpes. It is caused by a virus - either the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) or the herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). Both strains can cause genital herpes, but HSV-1 usually infects the mouth and produces cold sores.

Despite funding challenges, Cullen and his team are inching closer to a cure. They conducted a study recently that identified the pathway herpes takes as it infects. They now know how herpes embeds itself into the cells and how it eludes treatment. Now that they have honed in on the physiology of the disease - and its triggers - researchers believe they are steps closer to creating drugs that could cure herpes.

While we wait for a cure, there are drugs out there that can at least suppress herpes. Three antiviral drugs: acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir are commonly recommended to quell outbreaks. A physician might recommend taking these drugs when an outbreak occurs to quiet symptoms; or taking them continuously to reduce the likelihood of an outbreak.

And of course the best way to avoid spreading herpes is to abstain from sex, but if you are sexually active, engage in safe-sex practices such as using condoms.

Editor's Note: Medical news is a popular but sensitive subject rooted in science. We receive many comments on this blog each day; not all are posted. Our hope is that much will be learned from the sharing of useful information and personal experiences based on the medical and health topics of the blog. We encourage you to focus your comments on those medical and health topics and we appreciate your input. Thank you for your participation.

    I want to give up and forget about you all but I can't. I can't go bird hunting without thinking about how to get through to brainwashed consumers. I can't golf without trying to think of a way to snap people out of their mindless state. I can't even watch a movie without trying to think of a way to get people to put common sense before marketing.

    I just got out of the shower and this is what was on my mind.

    Every drug or alternative product must go through double and triple blind studies before they can be marketed as treatment for this or that. More so with drugs. The only way a drug can be patented and marketed is if it proves to be more effective than a PLACEBO pill.

    DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT MEANS?

    It means that a pill that gets patented is typically only slightly better than a sugar pill!

    IF YOU PEOPLE WANT TO UNDERSTAND TRUE CURES, you are going to have to accept the fact that a sugar pill doesn't cure anyone but when a person takes a sugar pill for a reason they might just control and engage an immune response that is MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE DRUG THE OTHER PEOPLE ARE USING.

    This means YOU can actually control your immune system IF YOU GET LUCKY! If you become scientific as I have for the past 16 years YOU CAN LEARN HOW TO CONTROL THE IMMUNE RESPONSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SUGAR PILL! When you learn how to control the PLACEBO behind a sugar pill or drug you CAN MAKE THE RESPONSE CONSISTENT!

    HERE IS WHERE THE GOOD DOCTORS AND INTELLECTS FAIL. They can make it here with this comment but they do not understand that one person can engage a placebo response in another, BUT THIS IS WHY SCIENCE HAS THE TRIPLE BLIND STUDIES.

    YOU SEE, A DOCTOR OF ANY TYPE OF MEDICINE, OR ANYONE WHO COMES UP WITH A CURE WITH THE USE OF A PRODUCT CAN BE VERY CONSISTENT IN THEIR LAVATORY AND CLINICAL STUDIES and then COMPLETELY FLOP ON A TRIPLE BLIND STUDY!

    This is because the doctor is actually unknowingly commanding an immune response with his or her patients. True Cures is the act of KNOWINGLY commanding an immune response!

    I learned long ago that alternative medicine is pure placebo and instead of crying about it I took the placebo products out of the picture and insisted on developing the science behind the placebo. This is why True Cures is a new and pure science. Medicine has never investigated why people are able to cure themselves with a sugar pill, if they had they would be using True Cures and True Cures would be an old science. Matter of fact, in medical science the placebo pill almost always, follow me here, the placebo pill almost always performs better than the medication being tested. This means the zillions and zillions of dollars you people donate end up being used in test where sugar pills prove to be more effective than the drug your donation went to research and develop.

    Medicine is the science of drugs and chemicals, True Cures is the science of the cures that take place when a person engages and immune response on their own or after eating a sugar pill and how to make the science an effective and consistent cure. These two sciences are not intertwined or related in anyway. Medical science has NO CONCERN for why sugar pills are more effective than medicine. I personally know why sugar pills are more effective than medicine and I personally can make any sugar pill 100% effective.

    So for you brain dead intellects out there claiming I am doing the Vulcan Mind Meld as a joke, here is something you may be able to wrap your brainwashed distorted minds around, YOU BRING ME A BOTTLE OF SUGAR PILLS AND I WILL GUARANTEE THAT A TWO WEEKS SUPPLY OF THEM WILL CURE YOU OF ANY DISEASE! I'm not going to mess around with anyone who can't grasp this concept.

    I REALLY DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T LIKE ME BAD MOUTHING YOUR BELOVED SCIENCE. Stick with them if you don't like what I am sharing here and see what it gets you.

      If you are living in poverty as you say, will you post your 1040 and business tax returns on here in a cut and paste format for us to see. Also, please provide the names, email addresses and telephone numbers of 100 people that you have cured of herpes. Please also provide their medical reports that prove such and not just your word saying they have been cured. By the way, what is your telephone number? I'd like to talk to you interactively and maybe I can assess your spirit a little better.

      If you cannot comply with ALL the above, take kindly take your spin elsewhere.

      True Cures. I still don't know why you have such a fascination with sugar pills and the placebo. You seem to have no understanding of the immune system or even the most basic functions of the human body. You seem to recognize that people can get severe allergies. You claim to have cured people of potentially deadly allergies. No I don't believe this. But. If something can be put into the body that can have such a detrimental effect, well wouldn't it just be possible that you could put a substance in the body that might have a very positive effect? Or are all of the deadly allergens completely harmeless and made deadly because of some kind of reverse Vulcan Mind Meld? I mean come on. You obviously have never taken or passed even a basic science course in your life. You have strictly become fodder for the masses on this board. And for the most part I consider you harmless because I can see through you. But. It appears others haven't been so lucky. Give this gig up and take the truck driving job. If you haven't made it in the True Cures gig in 16 years – well you ain't ever going to make it. And for good reason. It certainly appears you have cured no one. So please do your family and friends a favor and take that job. I think you will have a happier life.

      I haven't filed a tax return in 14 years. What I own could be loaded in a car if I owned one. All my time and energy has gone towards the science of cures but I wrote you a poem. And for the record martin, put your full name here and show us your herpes test that says you have herpes and show people how easy it is. Even if you had herpes and I know you don't, but if you did you wouldn't admit to ever having herpes either. People who talk about herpes and share their stories do so behind an anonymous handle and they leave it that way. Why???? Because of all the bogus ugly propaganda YOU create.

      I wrote you a poem though. Enjoy.

    David Flowers bless your little cotton socks, you are back again

    I am actually going to be civil now because I think my poem may have touched a nerve, I mean you called me a creep

    Ok my friend here goes I am going to tell you something in which I agree and I will have a civil conversation with you

    Firstly you are right going back centuries even when Jesus Christ was walking this earth we have the ability to self heal ourselves...that I can agree with you on

    The major problem I have my friend is that in this day and age we rely on an injection or pill to cure us and yes you are right these doctors, scientists and companies do not want to talk to you because they will make no money from you

    For you to say that the people we are donating to is the wrong thing to do is a little unkind as its in these companies best interest to find the cure......agreed? Also thats like saying donate money to charity every month and we all know that a small majority of that dollar you donate will not see the charity its the same for these companies....agreed?

    The other problem I have my friend is your name is mud on the internet just type in David Flowers scam and you will see for yourself, then type in David Flowers cured me......nothing unfortunately, also if you cured all of these people they would very kindly be donating alot more money than your making out as you would have given their lives back

    Remember the vast majority of good people on here would do anything for a cure....just like me.....think of it this way everyone has a great remedy for a coldsore for example put ice on it, use a certain cream , take lysine etc etc etc so we have all explored these avenues and spent lots of money.....we all know nothing really helps other than valtrex or acyclovier and that is a medicine my friend

    The other problem is that every company out there scam people with herpes as they all have this miracle cure and I have done it myself where these people play on your feelings and make you believe that the scientists and doctors are not telling us the truth, you go spend money on a product/s and you have been scammed so your really in a tough market my friend.....agreed??

    I tell you what David I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt here CURE ME like you are saying you can and then I would happily tell everyone how great and right you are

    I do not wish to meet you or pay for any of your golf, plane or hotel expenses, if you cure me I will give you my months wages happily, I would even go on TV and radio tell them you cured me, I will say one thing and just being honest I do not believe you can cure me I do still think its in your best interest to be here promoting your company for your wealth

    Now here is a challenge surely you cannot resist

      I lost you there Jay. Can you explain how a cure for herpes will be in pharmaceutical companies, Duke University or U of F's best interest? The donations cease to exist, the daily Valtrex consumption ceases to exist and the whole herpes industry comes to a stand still. If you feel food stamps are in their best interest, I guess I can't argue with you. I disagree.

      I wrote you a poem too.

      To your challenge. Prove you have herpes right here on this forum by showing your test results with your personal information and prove you have a means to share the results with any form of mainstream media and I will hitchhike to you if I have to and live in a tent and cure you.

      I tell you what, if you prove you have a media source who will do an investigative report I will let you prove to me you have herpes in private but you will have to sign a contract that you will go public with the cure with all details.

    This is fun. Here is my poem...

    There are people but mostly there are sheeple.
    You can tell a sheeple from a people by their blind faith in a wealthy but failing industry.
    There are all kinds of sheeple, some with PhDs but all with absent minds.
    Some sheeple proclaim “we are wiser than sheeple with their names on their shirts”.
    But sheeple are sheeple, all lame despite their educational claims.
    Sheeple take pharmaceutical’s corrupt medicine at face value without question.
    Sheeple live with herpes, HIV and all kinds of pestilence.
    Sheeple pay and pay for the drug of the day, but in the end…
    Sheeple still live with herpes and AIDS and during their mindless stay…
    Sheeple continue to ignore people who can save them.
    And they wonder and they pray but immunity is not their way!
    Sheeple can only pay and pay!

      David,

      if you have 'given up' ... why not give up on here?
      If you really had a cure, you would have been on the news by now.

      Everybody on this page want a vaccine which will kill the cells / antibodies and any trace of the virus, so that we are normal and healthy again.

      I'm not attacking you personally.... If you really claim to have a cure, then go to the media and make it global.

      Herpster,

      Why don't you find a media that cares about cures that put their advertisers, stock holders and owners out of business and I will go to them.

      Here is my standing challenge. Give me 20 people deathly allergic to peanuts, shellfish or any food and I will have them cured in less than 14 days and feasting on the foods that would have killed them and I will do it without any products. I guess I could give them some sugar pills if it would make for a better story because you people can't possible fathom an immune response doing anything so I will dress it up with some sugar pills just for show. How's that.

      It only tales 7 to 14 days to cure any allergy and medicine cannot claim a person eating shellfish without any reaction is not cured. A person with herpes will have antibodies for 4 months to a year after they are cured which make for a longer wait. When a person is cured of herpes the OBs are done but the antibodies will take time to disappear.

      None of this matters. Your beloved science has seen to it that any claims of cures outside of medical science is to be dismissed without any consideration. There is no mainstream media able to do a report that would expose cures that cannot be patented. Now I am going to repost the information about sugar pills because the information drives a point home that cannot be disputed.

      By the way, I have given up the fight. You see I don't have herpes, couldn't get it longer than a day or two if I tried. Now I am just having fun at your expense. You see, not everyone reading this blog disagrees with me. Many who have found me here have seen me in person and gone about their business. I'm giving up on them. They have no intentions of fighting those of you promoting a failing corrupt medical industry or even telling anyone they ever had herpes. I'm giving up on fighting the fight. I am not curing anyone until I know it will be public or otherwise beneficial.

      If Jay wants a cure, Jay will have to prove his cure will benefit not only others with herpes but me as well. I've lived without money for a very long time so don't think I'm only interested in money and property. I'm mostly interested in respect. You disrespect me because you believe the media and medicine is interested in cures and if I had cures they would break down my door to get to them. This is because of the sheeple mentality in the poem I wrote. There will be no media or mainstream science interested in cures that cannot be patented. If you want me to cure you, you better start a new petition.

    This comment is critical if a person is to consider any degree of immunity as being an option. People have claimed I have no understanding of immunity, what a joke that is. The idiot who said it has no control over his but says he knows more about it. If he knew about immunity he would be here sharing the information I am sharing. Medical science has no interest in immunity, if they did they would be pretending to be looking for a cure for herpes right now. They would have cured herpes 100 years or more ago.

    I want to give up and forget about you all but I can't. I can't go bird hunting without thinking about how to get through to brainwashed consumers.

      Herpster, I've helped over 300 people cure herpes. It would have been over 500 people if I had known from the start that herpes isn't a virus.

      I can count the number of people who have donated on my fingers. Please don't fall for the propaganda here and then ask me to help you. Please don't tell me you will support cures once you are cured. You won't. Because you won't want anyone to know you had herpes. It's quite simple why, really. Jay and John will be here to convince everyone that there is no cure for herpes and they will have Duke and U of F backing them up and as such when you tell the members here that you have been cured, they will simply dismiss you as being me or as being a liar. You will be banned from any other medical forum and no one will care. You can make a testimony for my website and I will be called a liar for posting it.

      Herpster, I have been curing people free of charge for 16 years. When I travel, I come out in the negative because I don't get any cash and I don't collect anything for my time, for the gas it takes me to get to the Boise airport or for parking. I spend two or three days working my ass off with 20+ people all looking at me for a cure but have no intentions of ever helping me, and guess what helping me means helping you.

      The only way you know a person is cured is when they disappear from the forums. The Herpes_Cure hubpage dried up after I saw 200+ people from it. Some of them have tested negative.

      When you are cured, you will not take on John and Jay. You to will leave quietly and start your new life. If I saw everyone from the forum all that would be left in a month is John, Jay, Melody and all the others who do not have herpes but want you to pay them through donating to Duke and U of F.

    Jay- Be careful with this one. I believe... I couldn't really figure out the all story because I was sort of new to the other hub, and because it's been going on for so long some that of the stuff had been deleted. But I believe he blackmailed one of the hubbers, her profile name is Kim he threatened to disclose her identity or something like that or maybe he even did. They were complaining about it a few months ago but it was something that had happened a while back when they went to meet him in NY and get his treatment whatever it is.

    OR ... everyone with herpes could take 1500 mg of L-Lysine every day, and never again have another herpes outbreak. But, it seems that nutritional supplements used as cures or treatments for medical conditions doesn't seem to be popular. (See "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" published in 1985.)

    David Flowers you’re like a fat man at an all you can eat buffet......you just keep coming back for more

    I read post your are now making fun of us hey not very nice David, is that because everyone knows you for what you are

    David Flowers to answer your pathetic questions

    If you think they are making a magic pill at Duke or any other company trying to find a cure then you are deluded, the cure will not be placed in pharmacies it will be an injection that you would not be able to buy over the counter ITS A VIRUS……that’s like saying if they found a cure for HIV you would buy it over the counter and it would be patented so stop singing that old broken song to us

    To answer your question

    "To your challenge. Prove you have herpes right here on this forum by showing your test results with your personal information and prove you have a means to share the results with any form of mainstream media and I will hitchhike to you if I have to and live in a tent and cure you. I tell you what, if you prove you have a media source who will do an investigative report I will let you prove to me you have herpes in private but you will have to sign a contract that you will go public with the cure with all details"

    Oh sure David you want my personal details to plaster over the net and then blackmail me for money, do you want me to bend over while I do it so you can just ass rape me

    I have acyclovir prescriptions which cannot be bought over the counter you have to get them from a doctor for herpes so I can prove that to you easily I would happily sign the contract and go public…..why wouldn’t I

    Why do you think I am on here?? I have herpes simplex and complex, what do you think I work for Duke??? I am not here to promote a company like you scamming people out of there money and yes in the UK there is a media source asking about people living with infectious diseases to come on telly so there is your chance

    "If Jay wants a cure, Jay will have to prove his cure will benefit not only others with herpes but me as well. I've lived without money for a very long time so don't think I'm only interested in money and property. I'm mostly interested in respect. You disrespect me because you believe the media and medicine is interested in cures and if I had cures they would break down my door to get to them. science interested in cures that cannot be patented. If you want me to cure you, you better start a new petition"

    No thanks we actually like the petition that is going around which I happily signed, Why do you think me and 99.5% of other people are on here.....one guess we have herpes and you don’t you are just a trickster wanting to fly around the world playing golf and eating in 5 star hotels using Jedi mind tricks on people

    You want respect?? you lost that a long time ago when you scammed people out of their hard earned cash making them pay for your plane journeys, meals and golf fees, JUST LOOK ON THE INTERNET EVERYONE DAVID FLOWERS NAME IS MUD

    I knew you could not rise to the challenge because Y0U CANNOT CURE ANYONE, I called your bluff anyway my poem obviously made you cry

    So firstly you said you kill and cut up your own food?? Elk I have never tried that can you make it into a stew?? you must save me some one day, you also grow your own vegetables (organic I hope), your so poor you live off food stamps, wow sounds like you live in the ghetto, the onion truck driving job sounds like fun everyday would be different for you

    I might write another poem for you but don’t want you to cry or put you off your golf stroke

    David Flowers I couldn’t help this poem its definitely my favourite so far

    Sitting behind his desk eating nothing but corn
    Flowers got more lies than Hugh Hephner’s got porn
    Taking your money is where he gets his kick
    He won’t go away, he’s like an Alabama tick

    He might socialise if he dips and dives
    It’s the daily routine on which he thrives
    I asked him to cure me and called his bluff
    Best take your friends advice and drive that onion truck

    True cures stinks with almighty smells
    Stop paying for his golf fees and 5 star hotels
    He’s got all the lyrics as if butter wouldn’t melt
    Yet he’s going out shooting and serving up yelk
    Plus he got the baddest house on the hill
    His bank accounts full but his souls empty still

      There once was a crock, who went by the name of spock.
      He would play 18 holes on the links, then go and play with his dink.
      He claimed he could cure, but we know that ain't true for sure.
      He would wow you with his Vulcan Mind Meld, and then delegate you to a living Hell.
      His promises were fast and furious, so he lured in the curious.
      They paid for him to travel, and then were forced to listen to him babble.
      Certainly not for the weak, having to listen to this creep.

      But he certainly kept at it, until finally the people had had it.
      They exposed him on the net', so he couldn't pay his debts.
      This guy certainly loves the Power, but oh what a wilted Flower.

    I am going to continue to heap hot coals on Jay and John here and anyone else trying to convince you medicine is the way to go after it has failed you for 500 years.

    I keep reposting the sugar pill information because it destroys John, Jay and medicine. The fact are this, the next greatest HERPES drug will have to beat a sugar pill out in double and triple blind studies. This is a "scientific" fact. NOW PAY ATTENTION EVERYONE.

    THE SUGAR PILL WILL UNDOUBTEDLY PROVE TO BE AS HIGH AS 20% effective and the new HERPES DRUG may test to be 40% effective. KEEP IN MIND that the sugar pill is 20% effective so it stands to reason that part of the NEW DRUG percentage will have also been pure placebo as well\, if not COMPLETE PLACEBO. THAT'S RIGHT, just because the drug showed 40% effective doesn't mean that the 40% who showed relief showed it because of the drug. You can automatically assume that half of the people in the 40% relief came from placebo and the which in reality means the the NEW AND GREATEST DRUG IS REALLY ONLY AS EFFECTIVE AS A SUGAR PILL.

    WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU, it means that the human immune system which is what drives a placebo is as effective or more effective than any drug on the market. Now run and donate to Duke and U of F if you wish to be foolish with your money but if I were you I would double your intake of sugar because sugar is much more consistent than drugs. Millions of drugs have been scrapped because sugar was more effective. DO YOU GET IT????? Sugar pill + immune response = placebo which is IMMUNITY.

    This comment is critical if a person is to consider any degree of immunity as being an option. People have claimed I have no understanding of immunity, what a joke that is. The idiot who said it has no control over his but says he knows more about it. If he knew about immunity he would be here sharing the information I am sharing. Medical science has no interest in immunity, if they did they would be pretending to be looking for a cure for herpes right now. They would have cured herpes 100 years or more ago.

    I want to give up and forget about you all but I can't. I can't go bird hunting without thinking about how to get through to brainwashed consumers. I can't golf without trying to think of a way to snap people out of their mindless state. I can't even watch a movie without trying to think of a way to get people to put common sense before marketing.

    I just got out of the shower and this is what was on my mind.

    Every drug or alternative product must go through double and triple blind studies before they can be marketed as treatment for this or that. More so with drugs. The only way a drug can be patented and marketed is if it proves to be more effective than a PLACEBO pill.

    DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT MEANS?

    It means that a pill that gets patented is typically only slightly better than a sugar pill!

    IF YOU PEOPLE WANT TO UNDERSTAND TRUE CURES, you are going to have to accept the fact that a sugar pill doesn't cure anyone but when a person takes a sugar pill for a reason they might just control and engage an immune response that is MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE DRUG THE OTHER PEOPLE ARE USING.

    This means YOU can actually control your immune system IF YOU GET LUCKY! If you become scientific as I have for the past 16 years YOU CAN LEARN HOW TO CONTROL THE IMMUNE RESPONSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SUGAR PILL! When you learn how to control the PLACEBO behind a sugar pill or drug you CAN MAKE THE RESPONSE CONSISTENT!

    HERE IS WHERE THE GOOD DOCTORS AND INTELLECTS FAIL. They can make it here with this comment but they do not understand that one person can engage a placebo response in another, BUT THIS IS WHY SCIENCE HAS THE TRIPLE BLIND STUDIES.

    YOU SEE, A DOCTOR OF ANY TYPE OF MEDICINE, OR ANYONE WHO COMES UP WITH A CURE WITH THE USE OF A PRODUCT CAN BE VERY CONSISTENT IN THEIR LAVATORY AND CLINICAL STUDIES and then COMPLETELY FLOP ON A TRIPLE BLIND STUDY!

    This is because the doctor is actually unknowingly commanding an immune response with his or her patients. True Cures is the act of KNOWINGLY commanding an immune response!

    I learned long ago that alternative medicine is pure placebo and instead of crying about it I took the placebo products out of the picture and insisted on developing the science behind the placebo. This is why True Cures is a new and pure science. Medicine has never investigated why people are able to cure themselves with a sugar pill, if they had they would be using True Cures and True Cures would be an old science. Matter of fact, in medical science the placebo pill almost always, follow me here, the placebo pill almost always performs better than the medication being tested. This means the zillions and zillions of dollars you people donate end up being used in test where sugar pills prove to be more effective than the drug your donation went to research and develop.

    Medicine is the science of drugs and chemicals, True Cures is the science of the cures that take place when a person engages and immune response on their own or after eating a sugar pill and how to make the science an effective and consistent cure. These two sciences are not intertwined or related in anyway. Medical science has NO CONCERN for why sugar pills are more effective than medicine. I personally know why sugar pills are more effective than medicine and I personally can make any sugar pill 100% effective.

    So for you brain dead intellects out there claiming I am doing the Vulcan Mind Meld as a joke, here is something you may be able to wrap your brainwashed distorted minds around, YOU BRING ME A BOTTLE OF SUGAR PILLS AND I WILL GUARANTEE THAT A TWO WEEKS SUPPLY OF THEM WILL CURE YOU OF ANY DISEASE! I'm not going to mess around with anyone who can't grasp this concept.

    I REALLY DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T LIKE ME BAD MOUTHING YOUR BELOVED SCIENCE. Stick with them if you don't like what I am sharing here and see what it gets you.

I told you I disagree and I know you cannot fabricate a poem that would make anyone believe a cure would be in any medical business's best interest. CHOP CHOP

    Its in the best interest of Universities not pharmaceutical companies to find a cure as they would be rich my friend and that you cannot dispute, why have they found cures for other STI's i.e syphilies, hepatitus the list goes on

    If it wasnt in their best interest how come we have cures for those??? people use to dies of those diseases in the past so how come all of a sudden after lots of testing they have cures and they are availalble to the general public??

    You tell me why they do not want to find a cure when there are lots of companies out there trying to find cures and vaccines for herpes? why david why are they doing it??

So tell me how a university would get rich if they found a cure for herpes being that is the best dispute you could come up with. You got and the other sheeple here have been freeling donating zillions of dollars for herpes research for the past 75 to 100 years so tell me how killing that golden goose is going to make a university richer than they are now from FREE donations.

    Hi Everyone just found another testimonial on David Flowers and True Cures

    PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS MAN HE IS A SCAMMER WHO PLAYS ON YOUR FEELINGS

    David you have a big nerve coming on here and trying to tell us you live in poverty and you rape innocent victims of their money, GOD is watching you my friend and you will get what you deserve

    TRUE CURES DOES NOT CURE
    There are many people out there claiming that they can cure Herpes. I am going to tell you about one of these so called healers named David Flowers aka True Cures. Back in March 2009, 14 people met with David Flowers in New York. We were all suffering with the herpes virus.

    Mr. Flowers told us that he could cure us in just two weeks. Some of us flew in from different states and one person even cam from Canada. He also put us on the no carb diet. He claimed that we all suffered from fungus and parasites and when the fungus and parasites were eliminated then we will be okay. We paid for his hotel, his meals and gave him money and most of us gave him money individually.

    One month later some of us were still getting outbreaks and we complained to Mr. Flowers. He told us that was impossible and cursed us out. He complained that we were only saying that we had herpes to avoid giving him more money. Now, he had originally said to us that we don't need to pay him but that quickly changed as soon as we complained that we were not cured. A few of us tested and reported that we were still positive for the herpes virus but that angered him even more.

    He then told us that the cure date was no longer 2 weeks but 2 years.

    Today, December 28th, 2009, and everyone one of the 14 who saw True Cures back in March 2009 are still uncured. We have been humiliated and we feel deceived and scammed by True Cures.

    Mr. Flowers aka True Cures is still peddling his one man show. He now claims he can cure HIV. Because of his practices he has been banned from several sites. He has been banned from several sites such as racoon.com, shutupandpost.com

    BUYER BEWARE – HE CANNOT CURE DISEASES! HE DID NOT CURE THE 14 IN NY OR THE OTHER PEOPLE HE SAW IN FLORIDA, CHICAGO AND TEXAS.

    TRUE CURES has NOT cured ANYONE of any diseases/viruses! Ask him where is the test showing they are negative and he cannot product it!

      Shame on you for publishing other people's work without giving them credit. If you want to copy and paste someone information from someone else it is consider ethical to give the reference to the information.

      For those of you who can spell Hepatitis and know Jay just claimed there is a cure for it even though he cannot spell it can tell Jay is out of his league. Now he is copying and pasting from a blackNgold/positiveenergies hub page article where she claims no one got cured. What she doesn't mention is that one of the 14 people is one of the people who as already tested negative on several test. PE/BnG has created a hub after she banned me from her CureZone along with more than 10 other long time CureZone member who reported they were cured without any products.

      She claims to be speaking on behalf of 14 people but only she is claiming that anyone is or isn't cured. BlackNgold aka Positiveenergies is just like you Jay and has only one purpose and that is to protect her CureZone sponsors why you are here to protect your universities and pharmaceutical companies.

      You will notice that out of the 14 people she is the only one trying to take down cures that destroy her business.

    Servin' up that hors d'oeuvre kid, now eat this meal

    Using Jedi Mind tricks, says he’s living in the pits
    Got a house on the hills, innocent people paying his bills
    He’s got land, he’s got ponies and swimming pool
    He got loot and a flash car, the man is a fool
    Says he has the cure, he just keeps coming back
    Just one word of advice flowers, stay off the crack

    He makes me physically sick, like strawberry quick
    Because we donate he says were all wrong
    Someone please pull down his pants cause he wearing a thong
    Grows his own organic veggies calls a potato a spud
    Just look on the net the mans name is in bright lights and it reads MUD

    I can't believe all of you bashing on true cures. Ofcourse there is gonna be peoe talking bad about him. Why? Why else because these doctors wanna keep sucking every penny out of you. None of these scientists give a damn about you. They don't want to cure you just want to keep getting you for every dollar till you die, funny how magic Johnson is still living what does that tell you. It's all about the money. God blessed all of us with an immune system true cures speakes the truth. Stop believeing in a cure it's never gonna happen. We have to wake up ! You think the government wants to cure us, they don't!! Who you think started the HIV virus and all those Incurable diseases. Read a book and do your research. Give the man a chance, it might be the last chance to get cured before the new world order. Please wake up people!!! It's reality

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORRUPTION OF MEDICINE AND CAPITALISM IN REGARDS TO CURES THAT ALREADY EXIST.

    I have never ever turned a person away from being cured. Techie Girl is from the original 14 people I saw in New York city who has tested negative several times without testing positive again. Positiveenergies aka BlackNgold is not speaking on her behalf or on behalf of anyone else from New York and Techie Girl is not going to cast her pearls before swine anymore. PE/BnG will say that MMS cured Techie Girl even though thousands and thousands of people have used MMS without even eliminating their OBs and NONE of them have tested negative other than Techie Girl who also saw me. I have 500+ clients, some who have tested negative but mostly they know they are cured because they do not have OBs anymore and do not care to test.

    Techie Girl was rare. She had OBs and they were gone after seeing me but she still wanted to test. She had a history of researching the testing processes and had a special interest in testing negative. The only people who tend to test after being cured are the ones who where considered a-symptomatic. They had no OBs to go away so they had no way of knowing if they were cured so out of 500+ people I have only a dozen or less interested in testing. I'm hoping they will make their test results public but so far they are not. Once I treated them they stopped posting in public and only contact me in private. It is rare to treat people who are a-symptomatic so I do not get as much research on testing as I would like. I can only assume the antibodies will drop off, and how long it will take is still questionable.

    Miami, thanks for standing up for the claims I make. You can help me and all the others contacting me from this blog by demanding the corrupt money changers here to dispute my claims or shut up.

    One of the money changers known as Jay claims it would benefit universities if they came up with a cure, but Jay thought they already cured hepatitis, if they have they haven't put it on the market and are still getting billions of dollars in donations which could be the case. But Jay can't spell hepatitis so we can't really assume he knows what he is talking about.

    I am getting emails and contacts from people who sincerely want to be cured, and they are people reading this blog. I have never turned anyone away. The problem is I cannot afford to cure people at my expense. That is why the other foot hit the floor three days ago with the big blow up on why I should or should not continue to offer cures. That is when I came to understand I had no reason to offer you people cures anymore. You can change that.

    I understand the emotional turmoil in all of your lives, at least those of you who actually have herpes. A good rule of thumb is this, those who attack True Cures do not have herpes. This is a fact. People with herpes are meek and understanding. People without herpes but make their living off of herpes like Postitiveenergies/BlackNgold, Jay, John and Martin here are here for only one reason and that is to steer you away from the truth.

    Those attacking me here do not have herpes. Those attacking me on the internet do not have herpes. No one with herpes would dismiss the logic of my claims with such disrespect. How do you know if I am right when I say this? It's simple, you have herpes and you would never ever dismiss a claim without exhausting all of your good sense. You would attempt to dispute my claims either in public on in private until you realized my claims are indisputable. Those who do not have herpes never ever try to dispute my claims because to do so would be to revealing of the truth which they can't afford.

    I need all of you thinking of contacting me to stand up to those here who do not have herpes and tell them to jump in a lake. Tell them to dispute my claims or shut up. All I need is a reason to cure people, it doesn't have to be money.

    True Cures. You really are one in a million. You tell the world that you are going to give up the curing business and get a job, yet you keep coming back on here to tussle with those of us that have herpes. And yes your claim that anyone here "attacking" you doesn't have herpes is a load of you know what. Don't you think the massive amount of people "attacking" you here would have better things to do with their time if we didn't have herpes? What a crock you are...

    So now we hear about someone called Techie Girl who was supposedly cured by you and who has had numerous negative tests. Well get her over here and lets here her story and see some of those test results! I mean, come on. Who do you think you are fooling? At first you claimed here that you had cured 500 people of herpes, then it was 300, well now are we down to a single person? And you can't even get her to come on here? And you expect us to believe you? A guy who seems to turn to mud every place he travels on the internet, with tons of bad press following him around, yet no defenders? Again. Come on.

    True Cures. I have rarely encountered someone on the internet who knows less about the immune system and human body then you do. At least in terms of people claiming they are experts. You can't even tell us exactly what it is you really do. Robin branded it a Vulcan Mind Meld. And well, I think it is an appropriate term. Jay referred to is as an old Jedi mind trick, and well, that may be appropriate as well. Untill you can give us a "scientific" explanation – and you claim that you have been "scientifically" developing cures for 16 years – well I think those two terms will suffice.You are sci-fi at it's best – or worst. Say hi to Yoda for me next time you see him.

    That challenge I put up to you True Cures is still waiting to be fufilled. Bring 12 people here out of the hundreds you have cured of herpes so we can hear their story. Oh yeah, that's right. People seem to run from you after you treat them. I almost forgot about that. And you never hear from them again. Then how the hell do you know they were cured?

    Anyone want to buy some stock in a new company I am starting up that will sell sand to people in the Middle East??

    I went into the doctor last week, because i had a groth on my penis, i didnt think much of it because i have a desiese that gives me benign tumors that can appear all over my body. but i wanted to get it looked at and have an STD test because at 25 i have never had one. and like an idiot trusted the "im clean" as safe sex. but i can count the number of girls i have slept with on one hand and number of girls i have kissed madeout with on two. its tough to get girls to talk to you when you have a fake leg, cafe a lait (look like big birth marks) all ove the place. but so i got a call back from the doctor saying that my HIV test came back negative. then a week later i get another call saying that i have come into contact with cold sores, but only in the mouth. i was not told about anything i can take even after asking several times. and she never really said you have herpes. just i have come into contact with cold sores, but to be carefull and look at my genitals in the shower every day. so i get off the phone with her, stressed out all to hell, and instantly can feel a cold sore coming on. and since i shave my genital area, the day she told me i sarted getting itchy and slight burn on a few bumps. but i have looked at pictures and they dont look like any picture, so i think that razer burn? but i know the feelings that everyone is going through. i hade trouble with girls before this, now what the hell am i suposed to do? go live in total issolation? then i talked to my mom, and she told me that i have had a problem with cold sores since i was a little kid. so i dont feel right geting mad at my ex who i think gave them to me. i just dont know what to do, and to see that they are 10 years out at the earliest for a cure gives me some hope but 10 years is a long time. almost half my life. now i am living with 3 uncureable desieses. and one for sure i will pass onto my children if i ever find someone that wants to be with someone like me. i did however get a text from my best female friend saying that she would still make out with me. it still sucks. life has a way of keeping me down.

    on another note i do a lot of looking up of desieses on the internet and cures for ones, i read something a while back saying that there is a cure for HIV/AIDS, but they have not tested it in humans, and its about 5 years out from human testing. so thre is hope for all of us, but its just a how long can we hold out.

      B the itch comes from fungus. There are hundred so of cases of jock itch diagnosed as herpes on the east coast. I know, they contact me and I tell them to spray it with Lotrimin.

      Let me explain how this happens and see if all of you can relate. Young adults have sex, the next day they wake up with a rash that will not go away. They assume it is herpes because they had sex and they are too embarrassed to tell anyone they have a rash and fear that it is herpes. These are kids who have never even heard of jock itch. They go to a doctor already convinced they have herpes because they had sex.

      They go to the doctor and if they are on the east coast the doctor will look at the rash and say, "gee, I don't know what it is" though he has seen jock itch a thousand times so he says "lets runs some test" and boom you just payed the doctor a handsome some to be tested through the herpes select antibody test and a SWAB culture test. You just payed big bucks and naturally the swab comes back negative but low and behold the blood antibody herpeselect test comes back positive for HSV2 or even HSV1 and the scum bag doctor WILL have the nerve to tell you that you have cold sore HSV1 on your genitalia when he knows it is nothing more than jock itch and the scum prescribes a prescription for valtrex and the kids life is ruined EXCEPT the jock itch doesn't ever go away. Even a young immature kid can put two and two together and they start trying to find out why their OB doesn't seem to go away after months. Then they find me and email me and describe their two month long OB and I tell them to go out and buy some tough actin' Tinactin and they are cured in three days.

      B, this probably isn't your story. But there are people who will read this who's story is very similar and they will find more relief from over the counter fungicides than any antiviral drug.

      There is no evidence or proof herpes is a virus. You have never seen a virus known as herpes, your doctor has never seen a virus known as herpes, the lab technicians who's job it is to test for herpes has never ever seen a virus known as herpes. If 50% of the population is having HSV 1 or 2, don't you think it would be very simple for someone to actually see the freaking virus. 😉

      In three years, over the counter fungicides have cured more people of herpes than any other product. If your sores are more blister bumpy sores you are not going to eliminate them with topical fungicides. You will have to get a prescription for LAMISIL TABLETS and to get a prescription you have to have nail fungus. The only way to cure herpes with a drug medication is with a systemic fungicide like LAMISIL tablets with a doctors prescription.

      Good luck B, but don't believe everything you read on the internet. Believe only in results you can see.

    You have A BIG NERVE coming back here trying to ram down your scamming pathetic business, how can you sleep at night telling all these 14 people that flew in from different places, you never cured them in 2 weeks and then told them THEY WERE WRONG you are the biggest scam artists ever

    The only reason you want no-one to donate to good people like bloom and Duke is because YOU AINT SEEING THAT MONEY YOURSELF

    The most funniest thing about you flowers is you think you are A THREAT TO WESTERN MEDICINE.....The joke is on you

    You say you are not curing anybody anymore but keep drumming up business here playing on peoples feelings we can easily proove you have never cured anyone, you make out once you cure someone they never talk to you again and go about their business as they would not want anyone to know they have herpes?? WHAT A LOAD OF BULL

    Here are some snippets from your testimonials

    "Mr. Flowers told us that he could cure us in just two weeks. Some of us flew in from different states and one person even cam from Canada. He also put us on the no carb diet. He claimed that we all suffered from fungus and parasites and when the fungus and parasites were eliminated then we will be okay. We paid for his hotel, his meals and gave him money and most of us gave him money individually"

    How can you sleep at night knowing that you scam hard working people out of their cash.....GOD is watching you sunshine and you will get what YOU DESERVE, Telling us you live in poverty and on food stamps pathetic your a chancer in life

    "One month later some of us were still getting outbreaks and we complained to Mr. Flowers. He told us that was impossible and cursed us out. He complained that we were only saying that we had herpes to avoid giving him more money. Now, he had originally said to us that we don't need to pay him but that quickly changed as soon as we complained that we were not cured. A few of us tested and reported that we were still positive for the herpes virus but that angered him even more"

    So after you brainwash these people into thinking you can cure herpes you then challenge them and get angry when they come back to you stating the results are still positive, you are MUD David Flowers you make me physically sick its no wonder you havent gone to jail for your crimes

    Everyone you have your OWN path to walk here but trust me DAVID FLOWERS IS A CON ARTIST WHO PREYS ON VULNERABLE AND WEAK PEOPLE

    For those of you who have herpes and are not trying to promote a failing medicine on this blog I will repost the facts again so they are easily available. Naturally you want a cure. That's what separates you from John and Jay who are probably the same person and very well may be a Jane instead of a John. My guess is the IP Address behind their post comes from New York City home of blackNgold/Positiveenergies.

    Here is my deal for you all, you find someone on this blog you feel you can trust, someone who actually has herpes and someone who wants to cure it and cure others. Find someone here who you can support and I will train them for free, just like I have been doing for the past year and they can cure you and leave me out of it.

    Unlike the trash here begging for your money, I'm not asking for your money. I'm asking you to cure herpes to help prove it is curable and that is all. After that things should work out.

    For the record, most people who have seen me to be cured invested less than $50 for the travel, room and board. Flights are purchased two weeks out for better fares and the hotels are cheap and so is the food and I usually see around 20 people. I have always covered my own expense to the Boise airport which I will not do anymore. 75% of the people who have paid less than $50 haven't had an OB since. Now keep in mind, when I treated the poor misguided people in New York we were all under the impression that herpes was a virus. I can't tell you how many people have contacted me with herpes that was cured by jock itch spray or athletes foot spray.

    Had I treated the original 14 New Yorkers for fungus all of them would have been cured instead of just the 10 and keep in mind Positiveenergies never had herpes so that leaves only 3 people who still have fungus OBs.

    So, please don't ask me to cure you because "god will reward me". Find me someone else to train to cure you so god can reward them and maybe then god will smite the trash begging for donations here. 🙂

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORRUPTION OF MEDICINE AND CAPITALISM IN REGARDS TO CURES THAT ALREADY EXIST.

    I have never ever turned a person away from being cured. Techie Girl is from the original 14 people I saw in New York city who has tested negative several times without testing positive again. Positiveenergies aka BlackNgold is not speaking on her behalf or on behalf of anyone else from New York and Techie Girl is not going to cast her pearls before swine anymore. PE/BnG will say that MMS cured Techie Girl even though thousands and thousands of people have used MMS without even eliminating their OBs and NONE of them have tested negative other than Techie Girl who also saw me. I have 500+ clients, some who have tested negative but mostly they know they are cured because they do not have OBs anymore and do not care to test.

    Techie Girl was rare. She had OBs and they were gone after seeing me but she still wanted to test. She had a history of researching the testing processes and had a special interest in testing negative. The only people who tend to test after being cured are the ones who where considered a-symptomatic. They had no OBs to go away so they had no way of knowing if they were cured so out of 500+ people I have only a dozen or less interested in testing. I'm hoping they will make their test results public but so far they are not. Once I treated them they stopped posting in public and only contact me in private. It is rare to treat people who are a-symptomatic so I do not get as much research on testing as I would like. I can only assume the antibodies will drop off, and how long it will take is still questionable.

    Miami, thanks for standing up for the claims I make. You can help me and all the others contacting me from this blog by demanding the corrupt money changers here to dispute my claims or shut up.

    One of the money changers known as Jay claims it would benefit universities if they came up with a cure, but Jay thought they already cured hepatitis, if they have they haven't put it on the market and are still getting billions of dollars in donations which could be the case. But Jay can't spell hepatitis so we can't really assume he knows what he is talking about.

    I am getting emails and contacts from people who sincerely want to be cured, and they are people reading this blog. I have never turned anyone away. The problem is I cannot afford to cure people at my expense. That is why the other foot hit the floor three days ago with the big blow up on why I should or should not continue to offer cures. That is when I came to understand I had no reason to offer you people cures anymore. You can change that.

    I understand the emotional turmoil in all of your lives, at least those of you who actually have herpes. A good rule of thumb is this, those who attack True Cures do not have herpes. This is a fact. People with herpes are meek and understanding. People without herpes but make their living off of herpes like Postitiveenergies/BlackNgold, Jay, John and Martin here are here for only one reason and that is to steer you away from the truth.

    Those attacking me here do not have herpes. Those attacking me on the internet do not have herpes. No one with herpes would dismiss the logic of my claims with such disrespect. How do you know if I am right when I say this? It's simple, you have herpes and you would never ever dismiss a claim without exhausting all of your good sense. You would attempt to dispute my claims either in public on in private until you realized my claims are indisputable. Those who do not have herpes never ever try to dispute my claims because to do so would be to revealing of the truth which they can't afford.

    I need all of you thinking of contacting me to stand up to those here who do not have herpes and tell them to jump in a lake. Tell them to dispute my claims or shut up. All I need is a reason to cure people, it doesn't have to be money.

    You aint getting off the hook that easy Im gonna make sure no-one gives you a single dime you have destroyed people's lives, taken their hard earned money and killed off whatever pride they had

    "Jay and John are the same person"...........WRONG we are two different people

    "My guess is the IP Address behind their post comes from New York City"............WRONG I live in the united kindgom

    "I am getting emails and contacts from people who sincerely want to be cured, and they are people reading this blog" WRONG we all have seen your scamming ways and real testimonials of the crook you really are

    "I understand the emotional turmoil in all of your lives" WRONG your not even close to knowing what having herpes is like mentally and physically

    "A good rule of thumb is this, those who attack True Cures do not have herpes" WRONG its people with herpes who expose you as the scam artist you are

    "Jay, John and Martin here are here for only one reason and that is to steer you away from the truth" WRONG we have told the truth of your scams and testimonials" You couldnt even cure ham

    Copy and pasted from Curezone

    Another David Flowers testimonial

    Another update – True cures aka David Flowers is not only a scam artist but also partially delusional. What a combination....

    He has seen this post and is accusing me of being the same person as a positiveenergies – who is one of his many dissatisfied customers/clients. No we are not one in the same. But I have been in contact with her. She is just one of many of his "uncured" clients that I have been in personal contact with.

    This guy continually disparages Curezone. He has been thrown off of here many times for violations of the TOS. And there are many, many folks out there who he has treated that are, well lets say, very "dissatisfied". And who unfortunately he hasn't cured. And still have herpes, or whatever else he "treated" them for.

    So save your hard earned cash folks. Don't waste it by flying this guy around...... The only result will be a lot of frequent flyer miles for him – while you are left holding the bag. And you will still have every single health issue that you had before.....

      Compare Todd, Jay and John or Toddjayjohn as a fisherman. He or they if they are not the same person are fishing right now. They are throwing out bait here seeing which one you will go for and when that catch you and suck you in you will spend your time WAITING for this promised cure they are casting in front of you hoping you will bite. They have been doing this for over 100 years. Once medical science realized they could scare and coerce people into giving them money, did you get that GIVING THEM MONEY like a bully on a playground medicine dug in deep for the long run. They will never stop coercing you for more money through your fear.

      With herpes medicine has convinced you that you are a diseased monster and your only chance to be human again is if you donate to Duke or University of Florida. They did this through PROPAGANDA because herpes isn't all that bad and it is easily cured through prescription Lamisil tables it just the stigma behind herpes that makes you feel like you are a monster.

      At least with True Cures there is no one putting money as higher priority than you. True Cures does not need your donations to come up with a cure. True Cures needs you to gird up your loins and educate yourself and prove cures exist by BEING CURED AND THEN STANDING UP FOR THE CURE instead of being a selfish person or coward. I know none of you are excited about telling people you have or even had herpes and have been cured of it but you can still stand up and fight the creeps who have told you they would get you a cure for over a 100 years of the same old song and dance.

      For those of you who have herpes and are not trying to promote a failing medicine on this blog I will repost the facts again so they are easily available. Naturally you want a cure.

    Looks like Lamisil Drug has more than just promise in treating herpes. Especially since it is on the market right now and available and 8 out of 10 of you with herpes have god awful nasty nail fungus.

    Funny how almost every person with nail fungus will test positive for herpes or how almost everyone with herpes will have nail fungus. But that is not near as funny as how effective a fungicide like prescription Lamisil tablets will cure both nail fungus and herpes.

    And yes, the comments against existing cures for herpes here that can't be patented and sold to you people who really have herpes are most likely from one person. So, your Jay, Johns, Martins, Todds and all the generic male names here are most likely the same person.

    When people blog about themselves having herpes THEY very rarely use any real name and they typically do not use an actual name either. The pick handles like herpster, scared, Techie Girl, Help and when help is taken you will see HelpI and even as high as HelpIII.

    When you have been as deeply involved with herpes as I have you notice these kinds of patterns like noticing that herpes and nail fungus ALWAYS go together.

    The reason we know Jay, John, Martin and Todd do not have herpes is because they haven't commented on the Lamisil. If they had herpes they would have contacted me about it like the rest of you or they would have commented here. They will call me names but they will not even bring negative attention to Lamisil here. They know if you people see the claim that Lamisil cure herpes enough and that herpes and nail fungus are the same pathogenic disease which is why the two always go together they know YOU people will go to your doctors and get a prescription for Lamisil to cure your nail fungus and be cured of your herpes at the same time.

    It has been reported that the Lamisil ends the OBs from the first pill.

    Cheers

      Mr. No Cure. You certainly are pretty busy trolling this blog for someone who claimed he was leaving the curing business so he could go get a real job and quit sponging off of the Government. What a disgrace. An abled body and physically fit 40 year old male who has never had a real job and looks for the Governement for handouts. Government services are supposed to be a safety net for people who can't work. And I don't begrudge someone who can't work for taking advantage of this.

      You however, are just an arrogant, lazy man who relies on all of us here to support you. What a crock of you know what. And you have the gall to come on here and claim that anyone that hasn't contacted you about Lamisil doesn't have herpes.

      MR. NO CURE – LAMISIL IS A FUNGICIDE. IT KILLS JOCK ITCH. HERPES IS A VIRUS. AND IS NOT AFFECTED BY FUNGICIDES.

      Just thought I would give you a much needed lesson considering even you claim to have no education. Flowers – I hope you aren't spending my hard earned tax money to go out and play golf. Knowing you – well I bet you are. It appears that you have continually manipulated the system for your own benefit. You don't even file tax returns. And yet people are paying for you to travel all around the world. What a disgrace.

    Some may say herpes has little to no affect on people suffering from it. People develop depression, then leads to withdrawling from social events, and as far as people losing their jobs. Depression can lead to death. Often people consume small amounts of food due to depression, and this causes lack of nutrients which then leads to many other medical problems. Innocent people contract either oral or genital herpes. Is it not fair that someone lies to you about how many sexual partners they've had or their current STD status? This could possible ruin any healthy relationship with partners in the future. No individual wants to have a sexual relationship with a person who has the genital herpes infection. Then how about children with no understanding of the transmission of herpes from oral to genital? Innocent children are infecting themselves and they don't deserve to have the social stigma "Ugh, she/he has genital herpes." There will be a cure one day. It will be by a doctor who lives with God by his or her side. Knowing they are changing lives through the belief in God. More than half the population suffers from HSV1 and HSV2. Some also say, well the FDA won't approve of curing the disease because of the loss of money. Wrong, curing herpes will be a forever profit. Individuals will being heading to the doctors on a daily basis to get their medicine to cure herpes. Finding a vaccine will eventually eradicate the virus and one day no person will have herpes and money will be lost. Curing herpes could save lives. Yes, other diseases such as HIV are far more important when trying to find a cure, but that virus is much more difficult to understand and finding medicines to cure it.The herpes code has been broke. It's a matter of time and the right amount of funding that will allow these highly devoted scientist to put this in clinical trials. I would give up five years of income to support this possible cure. For the scientist who develops the drug to cure herpes will live the rest of his/her life knowing they made an impact on millions of lives.

      B,

      There is so much more to herpes than the sores. No one can argue that. I don't want to presume you agree with me, but you at least have to admit it is the stigma or propaganda behind herpes that is so damaging. The propaganda is what causes the depression not the sores.

      Knowing that your sex life is shot causes depression not sores or rashes.

      Sex is a way to pass pathogens, especially fungus, yeast and molds all thrive in the sexual regions. All of these pathogens flare up with alcohol, rich foods like chocolate and are exasperated by having sex after a hard week at work and a long night of partying leading to sex when a person is a fungal attack waiting to happen.

      The fear and depression weaken the immune system making it more likely that the pathogen will cause signs and symptoms and be easily spread.

      Being told there is no cure and that you shouldn't have sex is the straw that breaks the camels back but that is a lie. You can cure it. That is what this blog is about. You have a choice, you can donate to Duke or University of Florida and keep feeding the propaganda and the monster or you can help by creating a discussion where people are comfortable about speaking about other options.

      Duke doesn't like people talking about correlations between fungus and outbreaks thought to be herpes. However their discomfort doesn't change the fact that most of the people reading this blog are also suffering from sever fungal infections like dandruff, nail fungus, psoriasis, eczema and other fungal disease, yellow nails being the most common.

      Lamisil will soon be taken off the market as more and more people cure their outbreaks with it.

      B, I hope you understand the basics of medical cures. The medical "cure" will have no choice but to be a poison. This does not mean it is something people should avoid. You and those suffering from herpes and nail fungus are superior to pathogens no matter if it is a virus or a fungus. Lamisil is a poison to pathogens especially fungus but you are strong enough to take a small dose of the poison with your doctors prescription and it will not only kill and eliminate the nail fungus, it will eliminate many pathogens as well. It doesn't matter if the same fungus/pathogen that causes nail fungus is the same causing herpes outbreaks because pathogens are much the same as ants and every single pathogen known to man can be killed with the right kind of drug/poison if medicine chose to cure disease instead of invest in disease.

      Every medical disease is an industry providing jobs for millions of people in the industry. There is no way a cure and make up for a loss of a whole industry. This is why Lamisil will be removed from the market soon. However, I am doing what I can to make the world aware of the link between nail fungus and outbreaks thought to be herpes and when Lamisil is removed it should hopefully cause a wake that opens the eyes of the world.

      Medicine is a business, an industry that keeps the world economy going. Pride and love for country will always make it difficult for people to change their belief structure in order to allow people to consider medical corruption as a real issue and not just a have cocked conspiracy theory.

      I wish you the best of luck in your fact finding expedition. I hope you find some of my comments useful.

    For the ones who suffer from any form of herpes, please donate to Duke University. The scientist have broken the code to cure herpes. It's only a matter of time and funding the will help cure those who suffer. There are a few other research universities making progress as well. One university is trying to develop a drug to completely inactivate herpes. There are also vaccines in trial as we speak. But, unfortunately only a small percentage of people do not have the virus. I was watching TV one night, and there was a professional MMA fighter who had the world in the palm of his hands, but was diagnosed with the herpes virus that affects the neck and chest area, and he had to leave the MMA sport for good. He spent his whole life studying and performing MMA and now his dream has been broken by a virus that can be cured. Let's please support the scientist who are fighting to give those who have herpes another chance in life.

      I just called Duke University. There department for Infectious disease is closed now. I will call them tomorrow with the sole purpose of seeing if I can pin someone down with a name and a reason why they cannot investigate claims of cures that cannot be patented.

      Wish me luck!

      Mr. No Cure. Why would anyone investigate the claims of a person who appears to have not graduated from High School or have any grasp on how the human body functions? It would be a complete waste of their time and money. Someone just claimed that Venus is made of swiss cheese but why waste money to go there to investigate this? 16 long years you have been up to this nonsense. And 16 long years you have failed and made your customers pay the price. Why cause anymore pain??

      Hi B

      I think any dontation to these guys are great but I have been reading Dr Bloom at University of Florida he has is developing a ribozyme that blocks any herpes outbreaks where as Duke are developing a vaccine, now correct me if i am wrong but a vaccine would not be any good to people who already have herpes

      So my money goes to Dr Bloom he is one of the closest to the cures 🙂 they are all great though

    Ok everyone Flowers says herpes is really just a nail fungus......... I thought I was in need of a pedecure

    Oh I forgot Flowers says herpes is not a virus either..........to him its just an itch, he recommends jockstrap spray

    He is phoning Duke tomorrow.......I can vouch for all of us on this tell the good scientists we love them dearly for trying to find the cure & keep up the good work

    And quick we all need to get a bottle of lamsil before it gets taken off the market

    Flowers you really are the best ..............I'm cured hooraayy!!!

      Jay, Bloom and Cullen are now working together. Cullen's "cure" is the most comprehensive and completely kills the virus. Blooms renders it inactive forever. I know you are bantering back and forth with DF and it's easy to do; however, I encourge you to spend your time writing letters to the NIH, CDC, Obama, etc vs toying back and forth with DF. That is a waste of time and does not futher the cause. Donating and writing will...

      No offense intended but even arguing wih DF is a waste of time. Put your time to good use. Sign the petition and encourage others to do so...

      Martin/Jay/John or whoever you are truer words have never been spoken when you said...."No offense intended but even arguing wih DF is a waste of time."

      Arguing with me is a complete waste of time. An argument has never cured anyone, a debate has never cured anyone, a donation to Duke has never cured anyone of herpes and none of these futile pastimes will cure anything.

      However learning about the immune system and how you can control it like you control every other aspect of life is a person's only chance at not wasting their time. Thanks for clearing up the obvious.

    I read that Duke is currently trying to find a cure and a I believe Florida University is developing a vaccine. What other universities are searching for a cure? This disease is an emotionally draining and painful for people who suffer. The social stigma is enough for people to commit suicide. It only takes one encounter with an individual who has the disease to have it yourself. Skin contact is all it takes. I've already donated to Duke University. I will begin to write letters to NIH, CDC, and Obama. I studied the field of nursing and always wanted to become a research doctor, but instead I took the role of studying business. But, at heart I have a desire to learn about STI's. Herpes in particular because more people are affected by it than people who are not affected by it. I'm sick of people thinking this disease should be disregarded and money be spent else where. This disease has been linked to other serious health conditions. Innocent babies are born with this disease. Not because the mother wanted to give her child a disease, but rather because so many people don't know they have it. I have faith in these dedicted scientist and they will be able to cure this disease. I'm anxious to see this in clinical trials. Do you have any available information on a possible time-frame this will be in clinical trial. Hopefuly within in the next couple years!

    Many medications are toxic to the human body, but modern medical science is they key to our futures. If you consume fast-food then you are also giving yourself a dose of toxins. The meat we eat! It taste so good, but the amount of steroids and other drugs used to make the product worth more money is enough to kill us alone. If we live in the fear of modern medicine then we should live in the fear of eating. I hope this these scientists are solely designing a cure based on love for human kind. Yes! Money is always a benefit, but we are all God's children. When you die, materials are left behind and the only thing you leave with you is a comfort that you served GOD. You made positive changes in millions of lives. You will forever live in paradise and let the streets of gold serve you. I donate thousands of dollars yearly to research projects and animal foundations. At such a young age, I'm only worried about serving God and living healthy. I'm not worried about the next iphone development or the most expensive name brand purses. Let's find a REAL CURE.

    The key to understanding and curing herpes lies in understanding why YOU have nail fungus. Learn to look at herpes as a pathogen not a disease. Learn about the immune system and how it eliminates pathogens so you at least know it can. Then learn to use your immune system. Its only too bad that you can't patent your immune system or an immune response.

    This is the email I just sent Bryan Cullen at Duke University. Yes I am aware that I used Brian in the subject instead of Bryan. I also Bcc'd a few of the people commenting here so they know I sent it. He is out of the office until Monday so I couldn't reach him on the phone and he is leaving the country for 10 days so it left me emailing him.

    I removed the links to keep this from getting shoved into the moderating bin.

    Here is the email from me to Byran Cullen of Duke University on 10/8/2010 where your donations are going.

    Brian, I am hoping to reach you before you head overseas.

    I know this communication may seem strange but I have been blogging on a CNN blog at (website removed for posting here to avoid moderation) and your name comes up quite often about your work in researching cures for herpes. Mostly they are asking people to donate to your research.

    I have been arguing that Duke would not be interested in cures that could not be patented. Your assistant Christine thought that was an incorrect assumption which I hope is the case. My scientific research has lead to a cure for herpes, however there is nothing to sell or patent. It would please me greatly if you could prove my assumption incorrect and take a little time to respectfully investigate my claims.

    My research has shown that a person with nail fungus (which you should already be aware is extremely common in people diagnosed with herpes) can also cure or at least eliminate herpes outbreaks with the prescription medicine Lamisil tablets used to cure nail fungus. I'm still waiting to hear of a case where Lamisil doesn't stop the OBs.

    I personally do not use Lamisil to cure people of herpes, I use the immune system with complete consistency. In a nutshell I use the same immune response that powers the immune response behind every immune response seen in your blind studies. I can take a sugar pill and make it completely consistent at curing herpes because as you know the sugar pill has no healing qualities, it is the individual own system generating the relief in your blind studies. True Cures doesn't stimulate relief, it stimulates an immune response that eliminates the pathogens causing the OBs which makes it a cure instead of relief.

    I have Bcc'd a few people from the Blog here who have contacted me so they are aware that I am no longer assuming Duke isn't interested in cures that can't be patented. I didn't do it to imply anything about you or your work but to imply that I am willing to do my part to ensure that Duke is aware of True Cures for herpes and to make you aware. I have been very hard on Duke and the University of Florida on the blog and I would be grateful to be proven wrong about my assumptions. I have contacted many universities and research centers which is why I reached the negative conclusion that universities are not interested in cures that cannot be patented. I will also post a copy of this email on the blog.

    I hope to learn we are all on the same page and more interested in a cure than money so I can retract my statements and give you the cure you have been searching for.

    I couldn't agree with the poster above more who said that DF is a massive waste of our collective time and energy. He is rather like a gnat, relatively insignificant but annoying as all heck. Tenacious little bugger too.

    (He is also directly contradicting himself as to the statements he made above that anyone who questions his claims or attacks him online really doesn't have herpes. But then, logical consistency has never been his strong point.)

      A copy of my email to Robin who contacted me about being cured through True Cures after she posted several supportive post on the healing underground. It sounds like she just told you that I wouldn't take her off my list. I tell you, ugly is ugly and rude is rude and I am never rude unless someone shows useless disrespect.

      I BCC her when I emailed Duke so now you know that the email to Duke has been made and Robin is a witness.

      This was her email to me..

      "Take me off your email list, NOW!"

      If you read the bottom of the email I sent her you can see why I responded with this. I will repost the email here so you can see the very clear and simply friendly option to be removed from my list. I told Robin this...

      "Are you really that immature that you couldn't ask nicely? Its people like you that make me believe there is a God. People clearly get what they give and you have herpes. You have been removed from my list but please be aware that you didn't come across so well with your last post and the healing underground. You might need to do some clean up work there because you simple do not understand and people might confuse your lack of understanding as stupidity if you don't clarify some.

    I understand why people think the pharmaceutical companies will not allow a cure for herpes to be made. Well, the pharmaceutical complanies will make billions of dollars for a long time after a cure is found. Why? Because the drug(s) used to kill the virus will cost a significant amount of money and insurances will not cover it for quite some time. Look a the HPV vaccine although not a cure. Where I live the vaccine cost $750 for a series of injections. I bet many insurance companies will not pay for the medication to cure herpes and only a small percentage of individuals do not have a herpes virus. So, the vaccine will only benefit a few as of now. It will serve it's justice for the younger generation when it's included in childhood immunizations. Think about chlamydia and other bacterial STI's. Have they been completely eradicated? Hell NO! Pharmaceutical companies are still making huge profit from those antibiotics used to treat chlamydia. Herpes will keep being spread after a cure. Now, when the vaccine takes full affect we will long be dead. Our grand children and great grandchildren will benefit the most from that vaccine. At that point, pharmaceutical companies will be making billions off of vaccines. I'm sure there will be a cure for herpes, but funding will slow the process. If we write and contact large organizations explaining the importance to kill this virus the cure will come sooner. Scientist already know how to kill the virus. It's the clinical trials that will determine if the cure is safe on humans. Last I checked, human trials are in the making. Hopefully in the next five years or so we will have a definite answer. I'm sure with the knowledge and technology these scientists will find the cure. If you want a change then find ways to help fund these research projects. Herpes is a serious disease. It causes depression and social isolation. There are many other medical problems this virus can cause. For the one's who say we should spend time and money else where, are the one's that don't understand what it's like to have herpes. Cold sores or genital herpes. They are both devastating. A coworker of mine said, "I would rather have cancer than genital herpes". I asked why and she responded, "There's hope for cancer, but none for herpes". Plus herpes is labeled as a disgrace to society. The social stigma is enough to make someone want to commit suicide. You tell someone you have herpes, especially genital herpes and see if you get another phone call from him/her. I'm talking about a possible boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. You say I have cancer and I bet he/she will be more than willing to carry on a relationship with you. It's the truth. My coworkes is right. Another issue to address. Herpes is so close to being cured, why should we give up now?

    I don't have genital herpes... yet. Basically, what are popularly going around in my country is hand foot mouth which is pretty lethal, then the nuisance of herpes simplex type 1 that team sports people and those who shake hands, go to wet markets usually get and those who got type 1 from being a baby who tastes everything with the fingers or are kissed or hugged by people shedding the virus.

    I am surprised that there have been vaccine development updates recently and there are few interests talking about them here.

    Glaxo's recent vaccine product has failed in its final trial. Sad. But I have heard of other more promising vaccine development routes... since like 2006.

    When will a cure for herpes be available? If competitng drug companies are serious, with the modern scientific advances not available 10 years ago, I'd say in these 2 years we'd have the vaccine to CURE and not just to prevent. Molecular engineering is now far more mature than in the past. We have already broken down the vira DNA and even for HIV. We have the ability to know what DNA strains do what, and we have stem cells which won't age to replace any human cells.

    Herpes simplex type 2 is not the biggest problem. It's very painful, less painful than type 1, but type 4,5,6,7... and 8 are more malicious and dangerous in general. HSV8 induce cancerous karposi sarcoma, HSV5 gives us gestric issue and nasal cancer. HSV5 and HSV4 totally suppresses our immune system to very low. And they can go dormant, or they won't...

    My humble thought is this... Chicken Pox (HSV3) won't kill very often, it usually won't ever recur. But the research that would cure HSV1 using reprogrammed virus due to re-engineering can also mean it can be used in the cure of HSV type Nth. When we know how one goes latent, the molecules or DNA code that does so for every HSV type and we can disable one, we can disable ALL. It's like the same thing as a Math equation.

    I read other vaccine development efforts and I am very optimistic that if we... each and everyone works together and seriously, if there are more companies like Glaxos actively trying to be ahead of the cure market, a cure should be coming for herpes types ALL in years to come.

    From Wiki:
    -----------------
    Vaccines for HSV are undergoing trials. Once developed, they may be used to help with prevention or minimize initial infections as well as treatment for existing infections.

    One vaccine under trial is Herpevac, a vaccine against HSV-2. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States is conducting phase III trials of Herpevac. The vaccine has only been shown to be effective for women who have never been exposed to HSV-1. Overall, the vaccine is approximately 48% effective in preventing HSV-2 seropositivity and about 78% effective in preventing symptomatic HSV-2. During initial trials, the vaccine did not exhibit any evidence of preventing HSV-2 in males. Additionally, the vaccine only reduced the acquisition of HSV-2 and symptoms due to newly acquired HSV-2 among women who did not have HSV-2 infection at the time they got the vaccine.[36][36]

    A laboratory at Harvard Medical School has developed dl5-29 (now known as ACAM-529), a replication-defective mutant virus that has proved successful both in preventing HSV-2/HSV-1 infections, and in combating the virus in already infected hosts, in animal models. It has been shown that the replication-defective vaccine induces strong HSV-2-specific antibody and T-cell responses; protects against challenge with a wild-type HSV-2 virus; greatly reduces the severity of recurrent disease; provides cross-protection against HSV-1, and renders the virus unable to revert to a virulent state or to become latent. His vaccine is now being researched and developed by Accambis, and is due to be applied as an Investigational New Drug in 2009.

    A private company called BioVex began Phase I clinical trials for ImmunoVEX, another proposed vaccine, in March 2010.[39]
    --------------------

    Anyone has any updates on these vaccine development? I especially like acam529.

    Let this virus be killed. I do not know why people believe this virus is not dangerous to the human body. If it can cause cancer, then it's deadly. From corneal transplants to cancer = time for cure. I've been donating and will continue and spread the news that a cure is near, but funding is greatly needed. Giving people a second chance in life is amazing. Hopefully the Herpes Coalition can make another announcement regarding how close the scientist are to curing those infected. Imagine this making headline news!

    Hi everyone there is also a company called biovex

    A Phase 1 study commenced in February 2010.

    The Phase 1 study is an open label ascending dose trial, assessing safety and immune response in healthy volunteers. The study is taking place in the UK at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London and will involve up to 42 already identified subjects.

    ImmunoVEXHSV2 is based on a proprietary engineered form of the causative agent of genital herpes, HSV-2, from which genes that collectively interfere with the functions of immune system have been deleted. The proteins encoded by these genes aid wild type HSV-2 in evading the body’s immune system.

    ImmunoVEXHSV2 expresses all but four of the approximately 80 HSV-2 proteins, maximizing the breadth of the anti-HSV immune response generated, but without the genes encoding for these immune-inhibiting proteins.
    ImmunoVEXHSV2 has been evaluated in the industry-standard preclinical model of genital herpes, in which it completely prevented disease, suggesting that ImmunoVEXHSV2 may be more potent in humans than other HSV-2 vaccines for which published data is available.

    The vaccine also considerably reduced the level of viral shedding following exposure, which if this translates to the clinical setting, may also reduce any window of infectivity from an infected individual.
    "Developing an effective vaccine against genital herpes has historically proved challenging. ImmunoVEX is a rationally designed live attenuated vaccine specifically constructed to address the limitations of previous vaccines. We believe our vaccine is built on sound science, providing a solid basis upon which to anticipate success in the clinic. We look forward to evaluating the Phase 1 data in late 2010 and based on positive outcomes, moving ImmunoVEX into later stage efficacy trials soon thereafter," said Dr Robert Coffin, Founder & CTO for BioVex.

    "Genital herpes is an endemic disease which causes untold physical and emotional suffering. Treatments for those with frequent recurrences are inadequate, and no prophylactic vaccine candidate so far tested has proved sufficiently effective for widespread use. The causative agent of genital herpes, herpes simplex virus 2, is therefore a very important target for vaccine development, both from a preventive and therapeutic perspective," said Dr Simon Barton of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.
