5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 08:37:35
I have a history of herpes related virusses, when I had Cytomegalovirus when I was 16 (15 years ago) my chronic fatigue started and never ended. But before that I already had many many cold sore outbreaks through the years, going together with a sore throat, dizziness and intense tiredness every single time. I have also had the Epstein-Barr virus, and several times the chicken poks as a child.

No doctor 'ever' thought that the above matters, and they never looked into it until I found a natural doctor that told me to try l-lycine. It 100% stopped the cold sore outbreaks (100%!) and this is a major relieve as it also prevents additional tiredness and illness.

Sorry for the long story, but lycine is definitely something to try when you are susceptible to herpes related viruses.
I take 1500 mg a day when a cold sore is starting, for three days, and after that 500 a day for a week.

I have cold sore virus breakouts so I take this especially when I eat nuts. This helps offset the l-arginine in nuts to bring back the balance between that and l-lysine.

Don't think it makes a difference but hard to prove if it is helping very very slightly

I took it because I had a bad cold sore but I think it caused me to 'crash'
