HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS infection is a recurring viral infection of the skin or mucous membranes indicated by the appearance of a single or multiple blisters filled with a clear fluid on an inflamed base. Later, the clear fluid will turn to pus. It is itchy and painful. It usually appears on the lips (herpes labialis), in the mouth (herpes gingivostomatitis), genitals (herpes genitalis), and eyes (herpes keratoconjunctivitis). After the initial infection, the virus lays dormant in the nerve center, ganglia.
The Herpes simplex virus remains in certain nerve cells of the body for life, and can produce symptoms during outbreak depending on the immunologic state of the infected person. This viral disease affects 40-50 million people in the United States alone or 1 out of 5 Americans are herpes infected.
As of the present time, there is still no absolute cure for herpes infection. Available drugs treat the symptoms for temporary relief. Dormant virus residing in the body may still cause future outbreaks if the immune system is weakened.
The best way to manage this viral menace is by strengthening the immune system. Take an effective dietary food supplement that can help boost the body’s natural defenses against foreign invaders. This is where Narra tea can help. It contains pterostilbene, a potent antioxidant shown in a 2010 study by Wang et al. to boost immune function. Another step one must take to prevent future outbreak is to be observant as to what food one eats that can trigger an outbreak, usually it is shrimp, crabs, or shellfish, or products that are derived from it.
Since 2002, many herpes sufferers have already been helped by Narra tea. The beneficial health effects can be felt in a few hours such as the decrease in pain and itchiness. In a few days, the lesion will dry up and scabs will form which is the start of the healing process.
