Herpes and Lifestyle - The Missing Link
« on: 28/01/2015 19:37:39 »
Hello everyone, recently I came across some blogs which explained how lifestyle changes and herpes, specifically cold sore's, are affected by lifestyle choices.

Those who suffer from cold sores often feel defeated, because of the psychological effect of living with an incurable disease. There are many ways to keep cold sore flare-ups at a minimum or even repress them for months at a time. Many websites claim to have found a permanent fix to cold sores or herpes, but buyer beware these are typically scams.

The best way to avoid cold sores is through healthy living and avoiding stress. Lots of people like to argue that stress is purely psychological, however stress has proven to affect the body is a number of ways. One of these ways is through a weakened immune system.

The immune system is paramount in keeping HVS-1 dormant, and while stressed the human body cannot focus on keeping cold sores suppressed. Avoiding stress can be as simple as talking walks, yoga, finding time alone or doing something relaxing. As for healthy living, a diet rich in leafy greens, vitamins A & C, and lots of fruits will not only make you feel better, but will keep cold sores at bay.

While cold sores can make you feel very down, the best way to combat your illness is with proactive action. The human body isn't perfect though and sometimes you will get a cold sore despite your best efforts. At times like these, it's best to keep a over-the-counter applicator product handy, like InterceptCS (interceptcoldsore.com) or Carmex (carmex.ca).

Keep fighting the good fight, if you have a cold sore just remember, it's not the end of the world. Change your lifestyle a little, and you'll be surprised with the results.

Cheers - David
