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.

    Dr. Cullen is in the very early stages of research. Not even close to animal trials and hasn't started studying his test in mice. It will be a good 10 years if or before we will see results from his research as we know. I will still support his research as well as Dr. Bloom.

    Write to the NIH. Let them know they need to increase funding for HSV research.
    Email address immediately follows:

    oer@od.nih.gov

    Sample letter:
    Attn:

    I’d like to voice my opinion on “how you are doing.” HSV has now been linked to increasing one’s chances of acquiring HIV, as many as two to three-fold, among many other things delineated below. I am appalled and the woefully inadequate amount of funding researchers are getting for this. This disease ruins lives and research funding must be increased. There appears to be many promising treatments or even cures on the horizon; however, they cannot proceed without funding. As such, I would like to ask for your help increasing funding for both prophylactic and therapeutic treatment for your citizens suffering from herpes and to prevent the spread of the herpes simplex virus.

    Please increase your funding dollars for HSV research. It is certainly needed.

    Thanks.

    I am so tired for waiting for these pharmaceutical companies to do something. I just found out that i got genital herpes from my boyfriend who performed oral sex on me. We didn't really research what a cold sore was and he had it since he was a child so we didn't think anything of it. WE ALL SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Millions of people suffer from it, can we all donate a couple of dollars and fund the scientists to help find a cure? Nobody deserves this disease, I say this because I plan on having children one day and a first time mother shouldn't worry about transmitting something to an innocent child.

      If you would like you can sign the herpes cure petition. This virus is being linked to other medical problems and it's more than just a skin irritation as many believe. NO VIRUS LIVES IN THE HUMAN BODY WITHOUT CAUSING DAMAGE. Seriously, recent research is linking herpes to Alzheimers. If you like you can also send emails to one the members NIH.GOV listed under Martin's posts. Let your voice be heard.

    I suggest all of you who believe in God and in Christ to take a long look at the scriptures I posted around 20 comments above. When you pray for a cure think about what you are praying for.

    Do you think your God has left you at the mercy of capitalism and Duke university? Do you think your God has lied to you or crossed you? According the King James bible God has given you everything you need to be healthy and He has not held anything back from you. Duke cannot and will not provide for you. Duke did not create you. Duke did not design your immune system.

    I'm willing to teach and train people free of charge for the sole purpose of exposing cures for diseases medicine cannot cure, that includes herpes and by no means is limited to herpes.

    There are people willing to promote training sessions in southern California and Florida. I insist on having at least 4 people to train and they will need at least 6 people who want to be cured of any diseases, including herpes. If you want to learn to cure yourself and others I will teach you if you want to be cured of herpes or any disease I will see to it that the people being trained can and do cure you.

    You do not have to mention herpes or any disease. True Cures does not care what medicine and science calls your signs and symptoms because your immune system doesn't care. The only thing that matters in regards to being cured is the fact that you are created with a powerful and super effective immune system and YOU can control your immunity. Don't be fooled by gimmicks and products, nothing you can buy will boost your immunity. Your immunity isn't failing because of improper foods or supplements it is failing because of improper control. True Cures the act of controlling a perfect immune response.

    If you want to be cured or be trained, copy and past this comment over and over so cures that can't be patented can become socially acceptable. CNN is engaged in a little censorship here so it may be up to those of you here who truly are seeking a cure for herpes to carry the torch. You can see for yourself, this blog has been taken over by people asking you for money and they have power to censor.

    Don't let the fear propaganda or the ugly hype behind herpes prevent you from taking responsibility for your health. Right now you have at least a dozen different conditions you can use True Cures to cure without ever having to even mention herpes. If you have allergies on top of herpes, just pursue True Cures to cure the allergies without ever mentioning herpes and your herpes will be cured with the same consistency as if you were being seen for herpes. This is because when you engage your immune system it doesn't stop. It will kill all pathogens, including the ones known to cause the sores known as herpes.

    Donate all you want to Duke but if you want a cure that already exist you have nothing to lose with True Cures because it is free.

    David,

    You must not know what seperates you from the scientist. It's their extensive knowledge of the human body and the herpes virus itself. There are people who support your method of trying to cure herpes. Then, there are those who support the scientist. Please, stop being so negative. People will make their own choices.

      Propaganda B, most people will not make their own choices hence the your barrage of propaganda here. You just tried to convince the people here that scientist have an extensive knowledge of the human body! NOT TRUE AT ALL. You tried to convince the people here that scientist have an extensive knowledge of the "herpes virus"! NOT TRUE AT ALL. You Tried to convince the people here with your propaganda that scientist have a better knowledge of herpes and the human body than I do! NOT TRUE AT ALL.

      You see, Propaganda B, with knowledge comes cures. So either science does not have more extensive knowledge of the human body and the virus thought to cause herpes due to their inability to cure herpes or they do have the extensive knowledge you say they have but ARE TOO CORRUPT to use their knowledge for good!

      Either way propaganda B you are the one here convincing people to put their faith in a failing or corrupt science. They are failing if they really haven't came up with a cure and they are corrupt if they truly do have an extensive knowledge of the human body and the virus thought to cause herpes because the knowledge you speak of ALWAYS leads to a CURE.

      If you readers are tired of the propaganda and the medical fraud and scams begging for your donations please sign the petition for cures that cannot be patented to be accepted and used by medicine. Here is the link. Still have not heard one work other than an out of office reply from Bloom and Cullen PROVING THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN CURES THAT THEY CANNOT PATENT!

      B, I will work with you if you want to create some rules and guidelines. If you will leave out all the fear propaganda and hype and stick with only the facts I will let up on your comments.

      The facts.........
      1) though herpes can be uncomfortable and irritating herpes is virtually harmless (leave out the fear propaganda)

      2) Duke and U of H have yet to come up with a cure or reasonable treatment despite the unmeasurable amounts of money donated so far in the past 100 years.

      3) Stick with the fact that there is no real or true evidence that herpes sores or OBs are caused by a virus!

      You adhere to these facts and I will have nothing negative to say about your efforts here.

    In college here and i have had a girlfriend for 2 years, except when we took a break for a week. I think i may have contracted the disease over that week. I have not yet been tested because the only thing that happened was everytime i had protected sex with my girlfriend, it burned and skin would turn red then dry up. I first thought i might be allergic to latex but without a condom it did the same thing, and now im worried. I show no symptoms without having sex but after having sex (portected or not) it gets red and irritated every time. Anyones thoughts about this? Please.

      Robbie,

      Your symptoms are the same symptoms as Jock Itch and yeast infections. If you are with the same girl you can be getting yeast every time you are with her. If you are with a different girl you can be aggravating your own fungal issue with the activity of sex as in the sweating and such.

      If you are having sex after drinking and staying up late that too could cause a fungal flare up causing the signs and symptoms you are describing.

      Use and keep some over the counter fungicides on hand for yourself and have your girl do a monastat yeast kit. Treat yourself for jock itch. Jock itch can easily cause the body to produce the antibody that would make you test positive in a blood test for herpes.

    David, what if the swab test comes back positive?

    November 4, 2010 at 00:28 | Report abuse | Reply
    • David

      Thank you Freddy for asking a very important question that will put you and everyone else on track for being cured.

      A swab or culture test does not detect the actual virus. It is a chemistry reaction test. They add a dye and if it turns the right color your life is ruined not because of the almost harmless pathogen you have been told is a virus but because of the stigma and propaganda. The fact is, if a doctor would lie to their patients and tell them they tested negative it would probably be a 50% chance that they would never have another OB or rash again. The stress of being diagnosed with herpes weakens the immune system more than any other factor.

      Back to the swab test. The test relies on indicators and the test itself more than likely says on the bottom of the test that it does not mean you have herpes when you test positive. The test is only a tool to aid a doctor's opinion.

      THE FACT IS Freddy, the test can be picking up any of a hundred bacteria, viruses, and fungus. The other important fact is no one every actually sees a herpes virus and if they can't see it THEY have no idea if it is causing OBs or not.

      Herpes testing is nothing more than pure speculation and opinion. There is NO way to know if any kind of herpes testing from swab, culture, PCR or blood testing is picking up a virus or a fungus. Antibodies are a part of your immune response and the antibody most often associated with a positive herpes test could be a result of ANY type of immune response including jock itch in men and yeast infections in women.

      Freddy, if you had a swab test that came back positive the test turned a certain color indicating the dye picked up something, the question is what did it pick up? More than likely it was a fungus, but it could have been a bacteria or even a slight chance of it being a virus either way it is easily cured if you do not fall for the hype and fear propaganda.

      Behave yourself Propaganda B. There is not ONE STITCH of PROOF that herpes causes blindness in any country! Post the link to such nonsense and I will shred it with truth and facts and expose it as pure fear propaganda.

      For those of you who aren't offended about discussing facts and who are really trying to understand what they are told is herpes, there is ABSOLUTELY no evidence that herpes is a virus. And there is no evidence that it causes blindness.

      For the record, fungicides are the most effective medicine for herpes. Topical over the counter fungicides might no work perfect on all sore and they certainly wont cure herpes BUT they will work as well much much better than antivirals and Lamisil tablets from a doctor will cure herpes every single time.

      So lets keep with the fact here propaganda B. If you have a problem with people in third world countries going blind sign my petition.

      ONE THING FOR SURE, the only reason why someone will not sign my petition is because they are against cures that cannot be patented. And you will not notice Propaganda B's signature or mark on it. Take a look at the petition and see if the people here begging for money for their medical scams have signed it. They won't. They aren't here to end your suffering they are here to ensure your suffering and take more and more of your money the way they have for more than a hundred years.

    One last comment! Of course pharmaceutical companies most likely are the reason it's taken so long for a cure to be supported. Next, why support a cure when people respond well to antivirals? Now, the herpes virus is developing resistance to antivirals. What's next? Pharmaceutical businesses are being forced to develop either new treatment or a cure. Let's not forget for years scientist have ignored the latency stage of this virus. Why? The molecular structure of this virus changes in the latency stage, making this the #1 reason why this virus could never be cured. Well, good news! After several years of extensive research, Dr. Bloom has developed the cure. It's only a matter of time before a cure comes about. Why would pharamceutical companies support the vaccine if they are content with antivirals? If I'm not mistaking vaccines would put the antivirals on the back shelf.

      Freddy,

      There are likely a dozen pathogens that can show up as Type 1 if the test is detecting any pathogens at all. You see Freddy it is extremely rare for sores to test positive in the first place. With all the million sores out there being swabbed only a few turn the right color to supposedly indicate a type of herpes but herpes testing is completely and 100% unreliable and a POSITIVE HERPES TEST DOES NOT MEAN ANYONE HAS HERPES, even your doctor will agree 100% with that. You may have to pin them down and let them know you didn't just fall of the turnip truck like propaganda fear mongers here.

You will notice that Martin has not signed the petition (link above) indicating that Martin is only interested in cures U of F can patent and sell.

    You will also notice only 10 people have signed the petition and those of you with herpes wonder why there is no cure. Why should U of F or Duke cure you when you play right into their hands and donate and donate and donate and donate and donate while Duke and U of F continue to ignore cures that cannot be patented and they have surely scrapped a hundred medical cures already during their research for the perfect drug that will help control herpes without curing it.

I am now taking a moment to contact you both so that I can let people know that I am indeed in contact with you guys. I will continue to stay in contact with you because according to the CNN blog at (website removed to prevent moderating) you guys are the leading herpes researchers of the times and would like you to be aware of cures that already exist for herpes but cannot be patented and sold.

    According to the blog, University of Florida and Duke are both on the verge of major breakthroughs in curing herpes and the only thing said to be in your way is lack of funding hence the demands on the blog for more donations for your work. Now, I for one am willing to concede that both Duke and University of Florida have always been on some verge of a breakthrough or another for the past 100 years without every really breaking through so I feel it is important that the consumers and the Universities are made aware of existing cures that cannot be patented for herpes and other diseases. I know medicine and the media ignore cures that cannot be patented and I like to assume as such the cures are consequently hidden from you two and that you guys are indeed more interested in cures than profits so here I am making you aware of cures for herpes that cannot be patented.

    It is my intentions to share the cure with you guys, but due to the obvious corruption of medicine and media I cannot sit back and assume this email will be taken seriously so I have sent a copy of it to several media sources so they can also be made aware of cures that cannot be patented and therefore ignored and if they too choose to ignore the cures they can be held accountable as well. I will use this email for proving that the media, Duke University and University of Florida are indeed aware of cures, whether you choose to investigate them or not. You see the only way I am discredited is by the belief that if I was telling the truth about cures, you guys would be selling them and the media would be reporting them. This is why I am putting the ball in your courts. You can now prove that you guys or the media is truly interested in cures that cannot be patented and sold.

    My research (which has lead to consistent cures for diseases such as herpes, showing it is stronger than your 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 herpes with the prescription medicine Lamisil tablets used to cure nail fungus. I'm still waiting to hear of a case where Lamisil doesn't cure herpes or causes ill side effects. So far it is a perfect cure for herpes, but True Cures cures almost everything in the process of curing herpes which is why I do not use Lamisil to cure my clients of herpes, I use the immune system with complete consistency and it takes less than two weeks. In a nutshell I use the same immune response that powers the immune response behind every immune response you guys see in your blind studies. If need be for demonstration purposes, 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's own system generating the relief during your blind studies. True Cures doesn't stimulate relief, it stimulates an immune response that eliminates the pathogens known to cause the outbreaks which makes it a cure instead of relief.

    I have BCC'd several people from the blog above and numerous other potential clients who are waiting to be cured so they are aware that I am no longer assuming Duke and University of Florida isn't interested in cures that can't be patented. I didn't do it to imply anything about you guys or your work but to imply that I am willing to do my part to ensure that Duke and U of F is aware of True Cures for herpes and to make you aware personally. 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 cures than money so I can retract my statements and give you the cure you have been searching for. I look forward to a response to my email or a response on any of the blogs this email is posted on.

    Everyone, I still need to perfect my claim to the James Randi Education Foundation. I need to write this claim up to where it leaves no doubt. Without sabotage I can take 20 people with potentially deadly food allergies and cure every one of them in less than two weeks. I need to write up the claims so that it is clear so if or when James Randi himself refuses to take my challenge it is clear that he knows he will lose. You can contact me in private if you like at dflowers {at} truecures.com.

    I David Flowers will take twenty people with severe and potentially deadly food allergies and cure at least seventy five percent of them within fourteen days, if not all twenty. I am well aware of the the potential for sabotage so I wish to hedge my bet knowing full well that no one else or no form of medicine can cure seventy five percent of their clients or patients who suffer from severe and potentially deadly food allergies. I will not use any products and it will not be tested as a blind test at any time. If need be, I can will be happy to cull out those who are trying to sabotage the test at any time and do so with my natural abilities to detect whether a person is or isn't cured. In a nutshell I can provide a consistent cure to anyone who wants to be cured and is willing to follow directions and protocol. You can't force a person to heal or cure them self, you can only let them and I can tell if someone is sabotaging the work by not following directions and would like to cull them out with my "super special" abilities if need be.

    True Cures is the act of controlling the immune system and its immune responses to cure diseases medicine cannot or will not cure. To control an immune response, there must be communication between myself and my test subjects so no blind studies. The point of the challenge is that I can see to it that anyone wishing to be cured of severe and potentially deadly food allergies can be cured without the use of any modern technology, products or medicine, proving the human immune system is indeed fully capable of immunity. I will require the test subject to avoid close to all sugars and carbohydrates, antiperspirants, deodorants, caffeine and all other chemical products. Test subjects will also be required to sleep no less than 10 hours a day and test subjects will be required to drink at least a half a gallon of clean pure water. The results will be established when the test subjects come in contact and consume the foods they were medically diagnosed as allergic to. If there is no OBVIOUS visible allergic reaction I win, if there is an obvious reaction JREF wins. Obvious reaction would be swelling, hives, redness and any other obvious sign of a reaction that is visible to witnesses. Scientifically speaking I will prove that the placebo effect can be virtually 100% effective in curing severe and potentially deadly food allergies.

    Either CNN has issues with their program here or CNN is doing what they can to censor me. I started out using David Flowers as my name and my main email address and it stopped working, either because of CNN censorship or a glitch. I changed to just David and used a secondary email address and after a few days the same thing has happened. Now I am using True Cures and a third email address which I assume will stop working as soon as CNN catches on.

    This is why you people are unaware of existing cures. The discussion of them is simply not allowed. It truly is a miracle that I have been here as long as I have. Believe me when I say this, when you no longer see me here it is because CNN banned me from sharing the truth here. Censorship is perfectly acceptable when it comes to protecting the medical industry's corruption.

    Makes sense there might be natural cures. But when they have not been proven by clinical trials regulated by the FDA then there is no REAL cure. Need a pharmaceutical company to support the treatment or cure. It's the unfortunate part about living in a capitalist society. I see your fingers getting dirty. It's important to have clinical trials. Not all natural substances are safe especially when taken in large doses or having an inadequate diet.

      B, there is no need for any drug or product to cure diseases that is why you have an immune system and it runs on food and knowledge. You rely on your immune system every day to protect you from pathogens even viruses and fungi. The only reason you are not aware of the overall power of the immune system is because greedy people have convinced you taking pills is logical and reasonable.

      Here is the new petition and it sends a letter to your senator. I would like you to sign it. Sign it at your will and then after it has been signed and others have signed it over yours you can announce you signed it and no one will know who you are.

      People have been curing diseases without medicine and science from the beginning of man, to suggest we need a modern pill is quite contrary to reason and logic.

    True Cures. No glitch. You have been thrown off of this blog several times yet you keep coming back under different handles and e-mail addresses. How sad. None of us here have that problem. You see we are honest and upfront with people. You lie. Sorry, but there is no easy way to put it. Last month you gave us some cocknbull story about how you were going to clean up your act and actually get a job. And quit harrassing people on support forums. And it appears you have broken that promise. Not suprising. You have an internet rap sheet a mile long. So many negative sites that have been created about you. And you tried to blow them off to us here. And well, here you are sneaking back on this site with new handles and e-maill addresses. Pathetic. And you hold yourself out as some kind of healer. How sad. Get a life Flowers.

      Martin,

      Start a petition on change.org where the people who sign it can have a letter sent to the government of your choice. Ipetition is useless for swaying the government, says so right on the petition.

      If you redo the petition with a online petition that takes it seriously I will sign it and post it with my information as long as it is open to all cures. However I expect to see your signature on the petition I have started as well that ends not only herpes but all disease.

      http://www.change.org/petitions/view/will_medicine_and_science_use_a_cure_that_cant_be_patented_not_wo_your_help

      Please sign this petition. Once you fill in the details you can choose to have your name hidden or not. When you sign this petition you are potentially putting an end to herpes and all diseases. When you sign this petition you are not telling the world you have herpes you are telling the world you want to see cures that can't be patented made available to the public and it covers everything from herpes to cancer. You are telling the world you no longer care about how profitable medicine can be, you care about cures.

    I SUPPORT DR. CULLEN AT DUKE UNIVERSITY AND DR. BLOOM AT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. I will continue to support them even if a cure never comes about. Which I highly doubt do to all the current researches on this virus. A vaccine is being designed to completey stop the shedding of the virus. But, of course we all know vaccines are not 100%. But for those who constantly shed the virus this could make a huge difference in their life. Then there are vaccines being designed to prevent people from becoming infected with the virus. It's a hot topic these days and much research is being focused on curing or preventing the virus from infecting others.

    Consider contacting the White House and express your sentiments requesting more funding hsv 2 research. It is a quick form that can be completed in 3 to 5 minutes.

    We need to keep our push on, every day!
    The more they hear about our cause, in my opinion, the more we increase our chances for increased funding and better treatments/cures EARLIER...

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact

    You can modify my submission if you like. Here is what I posted:

    50 million taxpaying US citizens are affected by hsv 2. It is a gateway disease and increases ones chance for acquiring AIDS and it has been linked to Alzheimers.
    Funding for this disease is minimal compared to other diseases, even though as much as 20 percent of the population is affected by this.
    I respectfully ask that the White House put some emphasis on the wellness of the sufferers and help to push for a cure within 5 years.

    If the bible is true you already have a cure for herpes. Unless you don't think God believes a cure for herpes is a "need". Notice in the scripture He says He has given us everything we need. It's truly up to you if want what He has given you or if you want to wait for the world to give you what you THINK you need. For the rest context of this scripture scan for my earlier post above. One thing for sure, you cannot serve both God and Mammon. If you try to get your cure through donating mammon you are going to have to wait. If you want to get your cure from God, all you need is the truth.

    Mathew 6, 25-33

    25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    When you sign this petition it sends a letter to YOUR house representative/representatives and tells them you want cures that can't be patented made available to you. Funding is not an issue. Signatures are the issue and when you sign this petition it doesn't tell the world you have herpes. It tells the world you want cures that can't be patented and that covers herpes completely.

    You don't have any other options. Do yourself a favor and sign this petition before CNN bans it for threatening the powers to be controlling CNN. This petition has already been banned from other sites. Take a look at it and see why CNN would want to ban it like other sites that make their living off you human suffering.

    Another organization we can send letters and emails to asking kindly to fund the herpes cure researches.

    Also, we should send letters and emails to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This foundation is largely involved in finding a cure for HIV and we know that genital herpes increases your risk for becoming infected with HIV. Curing herpes will unravel the chain for curing or finding better treatment for other diseases, like HIV/AIDS!

    All this talk of petitions, we need to remind those of you with herpes and nail fungus that you can cure herpes when you cure nail fungus. Go get a prescription for Lamisil tablets and use it as directed by your doctor for your nail fungus and it will cure any skin disease, especially herpes every time. Google Lamisil cures herpes every time.

    But do sign this petition. It is the only one that doesn't require your donations because you have already donated enough. There is no need for funds to cure herpes because it doesn't cost anything to cure herpes. It just takes knowledge and know how.

      When ice doesn't work the most effective topical treatments will be fungicides like jock itch creams or sprays or athletes foot products. Lamisil Tablets from your doctor will cure herpes once and for all every time, but you do need to have nail fungus before you can get Lamisil tablets.

      You see a lot of petitions here trying money to be invested in herpes research. You see a lot of people asking for donation for herpes research.

      I'm asking for people to sign a petition so medicine will be forced to used existing cures for herpes and all diseases that cannot be patented.

      Please read and sign this petition and decide right now if you have an immune system because once you understand you have an immune system it is only a small step to learn how to use it. You learned how use a toilet, ride a bike, tie your shoes.

      From Ipetitions Q&A

      Can iPetitions petitions be used for government referendums?

      Not at the moment. But an iPetitions petition can still have an effect on governments and policymakers. Many of our petitions are directed at individuals or institutions within governments. Although they are not legally binding, they still carry the weight of public opinion.

      Regardless there is no end of research for herpes. There will be zillions of dollars spent on herpes research in the next year or two. There lies the problem. As long as money is going into research there will never be ONE dime in cures, especially cures that can't be patented.

      Your only chance is to sign my petition and force Duke and U of F to use the cures I have discovered even if they can't patent them for sale.

    I posted this with both petition links and it was flagged for moderation and sat for a day or so. You will find the link to my petition above and the Ipetition last posted by Martin.

    Everyone, please sign the two petitions.

    The top petition is about taking direction over funding for research in hopes of finding a cure and the bottom petition is about forcing medicine and science to utilize existing cure available already for herpes and other diseases. Both are worthy of full attention and by signing both you truly are hedging your bets.

    Sign the first one and it could lead to medicine marketing prescription Lamisil Tablets as a herpes cure, being that it cures herpes every single time someone uses it. But YOU will have to force medicine to cure you, this is not being argued and this is why the petition are being circulated.

    Sign the second one. It is a very official petition and you will be sending a letter to your house of representatives so you will have to use your real information. You can go completely anonymous to the public by removing the check just below your information to prevent your info from being public. When you sign this petition, you are seeing to it that science and medicine no longer ignore cures just because they cannot be patented.

    Hedge your bets. See which petition will get you cured of herpes.

    I know some of you believe in Christ and as such you MUST believe you can cure herpes. Here is the scriptures that tell you that you can cure herpes yourselves without the world getting involved.

    19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

    22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

    24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

    If the bible is true, you have everything you need RIGHT now, if you do not know this, you simply lack the knowledge and blame that on medicine and science as they are the ones who convinced you that chemicals are the way to better health even though the chemical you take today will be the class action lawsuit tomorrow!

    I just found out I am diagnosed with herpes. I am 30 yrs old and can not believe I caught something I can not get rid of. I feel different every day knowing I will never find any one out there who will accept me for what I got. Its very imbarassing to even tell a man I got this. I am praying that God will bless physicans to come up with a cure because this kind of disease is taking peoples lives away that is diagnosed with it. I have learned my lesson to always practice safe sex from now on and should of learned to do it before.
    So until then a cure will be found I will have to live to treat my out-breaks an learn to deal with this virus.

      Stephanie, let me help you rise above the fear and lies. You didn't "catch" herpes. There is very small chance that you might have recently been infected but that is extremely doubtful. Chances are you have had the pathogen responsible for the sores for many years. The test that detects what science fiction refers to as "herpes" only detects antibodies not any pathogens. There is no "herpes" test that detects actual pathogens.

      Most likely your primary immune response just failed you. When your primary immune response is active your body will have no need for antibodies for defense. You could roll on "herpes", sleep with "herpes" and be infected with "herpes" three times a day with an active primary immune defense without ever getting a sore or an antibody. You can carry the pathogen for years without testing positive in a test or having a sore but once your primary immune response fails and you shift to your secondary immune response you will start creating antibodies and therefore test positive for many pathogens and the secondary immune response is far less effective at keeping such pathogens in check.

      As for praying for physicians to come up with a cure, that is foolishness. Why would you ask God for something He already gave you? I suggest your pray for wisdom, knowledge and guidance for YOURSELF. God didn't put you here to fear so called herpes or any disease. I suggest you refer to the scripture posted JUST above your comment. The one that tells you that YOU have everything you NEED. If you think you need medicine to cure yourself or end the suffering you don't have the Truth, the Light or the facts.

      I hope you do not take offense. You are not alone. Science and medicine sees to it that you do not understand your immune system or health and healing in any way. They see to it that you rely on mammon instead of God. They have taught you to use science to emancipate yourself from God so they can take full advantage of you.

      Please take a moment to sign the two petitions circulating on this blog. I will try to post them below if CNN does not censor them which they are inclined to do to the truth.

      This petition will not label you with having herpes and can be used to force science to acknowledge YOUR ABILITY TO CURE YOURSELF OF what they refer to as herpes. I assure you, there are existing cures for herpes being ignored by CNN, medicine and science. Sign the petition and save yourself from herpes and save everyone from cancer, especially the children of St Jude who are not going to have to opportunity to last long enough for True Cures.

      Please sign the following petition as well to hedge your bet and to do all you can, because it is up to you, not physicians.

      Stephanie,

      Here is the second petition you need to sign.

      http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/herpescure/

      Don't pray for things you can do for yourself. Take a stance and take control and you will not be a victim.

      You are welcome Herpster. You can tell when someone is sincere about human rights and ending needless suffering. You all have seen me tough talk a lot of people here who were tough talking me. My petition evens the playing field and eliminates the need for tough talk. If someone doesn't like my claims they have a powerful voice by signing the petition to have my claims investigated by the authorities. If they refuse to sign they inadvertently validate my claims.

      I'm not so naive to think others are not scientifically aware that man has the ability to use their immune system for immunity. I would like to offer my theory on immunity. I believe much of it is instinctual and I believe man has lost touch with almost all natural instincts. When we turn to someone else or more importantly to a product for hope of healing or immunity we obviously do not turn to our own immune system. As such we have as a society completely disregarded our immune system and immunity.

      I swear humans have the ability to control their immune system the same as they can control their thoughts, fingers, breathing, walking and any other task we do. Like many task, people must learn to use their immune system until it becomes instinctual again. Make no mistake, I can provide consistent cures, I just can't explain what goes on inside a human when they are restoring their immunity or using their immunity.

      When you make such a monumental discovery, it is very hard to tolerate false accusations and attacks. This petition is such a threat to the medical industry and the media including CNN that it has been banned from many forums I have long been posting on. I have been allowed to post on many forums as long as people had a leg to attack my claims due to my lack of scientific corroboration. Now with the petition they have no way of attacking me so I am not being banned from those forums and the topic's locker or removed. Censorship is live and well.

      It is time people unite by taking the secrecy out of the health and healing industry. The medical industry is as secret as they come and I for one do not believe matters of health should be so secret. Sign the petitions here and demand the truth, demand cures even if they cannot be patented and sold to you as medicine. Please take 30 seconds to sign the petitions here. You can sign with your full name and have it viewed or have it private. When it is private, not even I can see your info. If you know of anyone looking for any cure for any disease please pass on this petition to them and share it on facebook and twitter. True Cures is immunity for all.

      Sincerely
      David Flowers True Cures

      Will medicine and science use a cure that can't be patented? Not w/o your help.
