Alternative Answers for Herpes SimplexHerpes Virus: HSV1 causes cold sores. It spreads by direct contact with fluids of a cold sore or skin eruption from someone who carries the virus. HSV2 genital herpes, is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a strain of the herpes simplex virus.

This virus enters the body through small cuts in the skin or mucous membranes.

Pregnant women can also pass this virus to their babies during vaginal delivery. Both men and women can become infected. The condition requires careful management. Once an individual is infected by the virus it remains in the body, usually dormant, until some other factor such as stress, sun, infection, or weak immunity, triggers an outbreak.

Experts do not know exactly what causes the virus to lie dormant for long periods and then abruptly awake. Many think that a weakened immune system is the cause. Therefore, it would be wise for you to keep your immune system strong and under control with a well-rounded diet, lots of rest and relaxation, and regular exercise. This program below assists in acute outbreaks and long term care for HSV1 and HSV2.

What is Acupressure?Originating from China, acupressure is a combination of acupuncture and pressure. By applying pressure to the points used in acupuncture many symptoms of discomfort are relieved of pain. This pressure application is done with the use of the hands, the elbows, or other equipment.

The body has an energy current that travels inside the body along an invisible path, according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) principles. These pathways are known as meridians, which are thought to number 14, that interconnect our organs with other body parts. The pressure that is applied to our bodies during acupressure lie on those meridians. It is believed that the blockage of these meridians is what causes our ailments.

It is thought that when this pressure is applied to the points in question on the body natural pain relievers, endorphins, are released thereby relieving the pain.
