What are the symptoms of a Cold Sore?

It tends to be a burning sensation on your lip or around the mouth area.  Then you will get a blister like sore that will appear in the area where you are having the burning sensation.

What is the Root Cause for a Cold Sore?

The root cause of a cold sore is an infection caused by the Herpes Simplex Type I virus because of a decrease in tissue calcium, however, after getting this virus, other situations can cause a break-out. Things that can trigger an outbreak are things such as stress which can deplete the calcium in your body, too much time in the sun which pulls the calcium out of your tissues and into the bloodstream – depleting your tissue calcium. So notice if your body is becoming overly warm when you are out in the sun and supplement with Cataplex F.

During the cold sore season avoid intake of beer, chocolate, soft drinks, and sugar.

Eat foods that have the essential amino acids L-lysine (essential, meaning you have to get it from your diet) such as wild-caught fish. Or take an essential amino acids supplement such as Protefood from Standard Process.

Is there anything Natural that can be done for Cold Sores?

The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronut­­­­rients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
  • Daily dosage are in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
  • MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
  • We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds in the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
  • Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.

    Viruses are phooey, hsv is caused by toxicity which depletes calcium bc calcium alkalizes the toxic hence acidic terrain. The skin becomes thin w calcium deficiency and pink tissues are already thin therefore those w show signs first. I read an article earlier that claimed using activated charcoal healed outbreaks bc it’s (charcoal) a drug delivery system LOL ppl are warned not to take activated charcoal w prescription drugs bc it can bind to and remove the pharmaceutical drug (toxins bc that’s what activated charcoal does, duh) from your system. The corrupt allopathic community crack me up spouting this type of garbage! Nearly all disease is lack of nutrition and a high body burden of environmental toxins. When charcoal or bentonite clay can heal something you’re safe in assuming the illness is from toxicity. In addition to thin skin bc of calcium deficiency think about how many chemicals are in toilet paper, feminine products and any other agent that we put down there …. Jock itch, yeast infections, spermicides; it’s no wonder we have issues there! Lol
