08 May Herpes Simplex Virus Treatment
With nearly 1 million new cases of genital herpes diagnosed every year, it should be no surprise that the herpes simplex treatment market is projected to grow in the near future. While researchers everywhere are trying to formulate a herpes cure, people with herpes must turn to “cures” to manage herpes. Herpes treatment drugs (including Zovirax, Valtrex, Famvir and Denavir) are often prescribed to treat herpes, but with a large number of side-effects and the potential for drug related toxicity, many avoid this expensive option.
Natural herpes remedies are also available to people with oral or genital herpes who want to alleviate the condition and prevent future outbreaks. Formulated using antivirals and immune boosters found in nature, these herbal products can be extremely effective and completely safe.
The Current State of the Herpes Simplex Virus Treatment Market
“Genital herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the US. The prevalence of genital herpes is estimated at 63 million in the US alone, with about 500,000 to 1,000,000 new cases being diagnosed every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the rate of infection of genital herpes has increased by about 30% between the late 1970s and the early 1990s. However, since more than 80% of people with genital herpes do not have an idea that they are infected, resulting in low diagnosis rate, there exists significant growth potential for Herpes Simplex Virus treatment drugs. In addition, the lack of availability of remedies for the complete curing of HSV also bodes well for the development of new remedies. The herpes treatment market presently includes various anti-viral therapies that alleviate painful symptoms of the infection. However, these drugs are known to cause drug related toxicity as a result of their interference with the natural metabolism of the human body.”
Of course, even without cures for oral and genital herpes, treatment exists that can help mitigate the symptoms of herpes. The toxicity from antiviral treatment like acyclovir is well-documented, and can cause rare but serious side effects such as angiodema (severe and rapid swelling of the subdermal layers of the skin). More common side effects of this treatment have been known to cause headaches, gastrointestinal problems, and general feelings of weakeness or nausea.
There is an alternative to this treatment, however. There are natural antiviral remedies that are side-effect free and super effective at battling herpes outbreaks. This treatment “cures” away cold sores and genital lesions caused by herpes viruses; it as just as effective as a prescription medication, and we have heard reports of many users claiming that it has worked when acyclovir-based products have not.
Prescription or not, there are no true cures for oral or genital herpes. These remedies provide “cures” for symptoms, not the virus itself. Herpes viruses are insidious, living inside nerve cells where the immune system cannot find them. When the immune system is weakened – due to stress, illness, or otherwise – the virus senses the opportunity and strikes, causing blisters to appear on the skin. Antiviral remedies work by reinforcing the immune system – forcing it into overdrive, and keeping your defenses strong against HSV and other herpes viruses like shingles.
Considering that only 20% of herpes-infected individuals know that they are infected with HSV, it is no wonder the rate of genital herpes infections increased 30% from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
