Herpes on the back

Herpes is an infectious disease caused by a virus. It is considered a chronic pathology, since this virus remains in our body and triggers outbreaks according to different factors. The symptoms, the affected area and severity also vary according to the type of virus, which can be simple or zoster.

Both the herpes of the back, and any other variant, appears in our body when our immune system is weakened. Therefore, although we can apply remedies to relieve pain or burning, the most important thing is to raise the immune defenses. In this way, we will prevent it from getting worse, extending and reappearing.

Cure Herpes with Natural medicine

1. Echinacea

Echinacea has anti-infectious virtues that defend us against different pathogens, such as viruses. Actually, it is one of the most famous and ancient medicinal plants that are consumed to strengthen the immune system. In addition, it is effective with both herpes simplex and herpes zoster.

  • So that Echinacea does not harm us, we must take it in the right way. We can not consume this plant for more than three months in a row.
  • It is best to take it seasonally, take breaks and not exceed the dose of 7 grams per day (in adults).

2. Brewer’s yeast

Lysine is an essential amino acid that fights viral infections, in particular, herpes simplex and zoster. Some foods contain good amounts of this nutrient, as is the case with brewer’s yeast or nutritional yeast.

Thanks to lysine and many other nutrients, brewer’s yeast balances and strengthens the nervous system and the immune system. In addition, it also acts as a depurative of the skin.

For this reason we can take it daily, in capsules or with food, as it has a delicious flavor, similar to nuts or cheese.

3. Garlic

Garlic is an excellent natural antibiotic that can fight back herpes, whether it is simple or shingles. This medicinal food has the virtue of reducing inflammation, improving circulation, raising the defenses and preventing the virus from advancing.

We can combine the consumption of raw garlic with the direct application on the affected skin. However, we must do it daily until you submit. We can also perform the surprising Tibetan garlic cure to do a deep purification of the body and prevent outbreaks.

If it is difficult for us to digest it, or it causes us bad breath, we can also take it in capsules.

4. Propolis

Propolis is another great natural antibiotic, especially the green variety from Brazil. This superfood fights all kinds of bacteria, viruses and fungi, so it is convenient for us to always have it in the first aid kit to resort to it at the first symptoms.

We will have to combine the topical and oral use of propolis to end herpes of the back effectively:

  • Oral: 5 drops 1 time a day (preventive), 5 drops every hour (in full outbreak), and 5 drops 3 times a day (maintenance after the outbreak).
  • Topical: Apply 2 or 3 times a day on herpes of the back.

5. Aloe vera

Aloe vera is the remedy we propose to soothe upset that causes irritating symptoms, especially itching, burning and pain. Although aloe does not cure or eliminate herpes, it can offer a quick and natural relief while combining it with previous treatments.

We must apply gel that is extracted from the stalk of the aloe. It is best to have our own plant at home so that it can be used at any time.

We can also buy it. However, in this case we must ensure that it is, almost entirely, pure gel of the plant.
