BHT and Lysine Together

Posted by L on 12/26/2007

Dear Ted: I read on a recent herpes blog that you should not take Lysine while on BHT treatment as the Lysine inhibits the BHT from working. Do you know if this is correct?Thanks

L: For Herpes, the BHT and Lysine is often taken together, but I might also take occasional zinc gluconate 50 mg, to further discourage the viral growth too. In fact lysine and BHT is commonly taken together, as mentioned here: "Herpes Simplex Type I Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a potent deactivator of lipid-enveloped viruses. Many people throughout the USA are using BHT to successfully keep the lesions dormant, with no sores as long as they consume BHT regularly. Some people develop sores once every 3-4 months opposed to higher frequency when not using BHT. The majority of those who use lysine regularly along with 750-1,000mg of BHT daily keep the sores from ever occurring. The only human antiviral test that has been conducted with BHT was for herpes, the outcome of which was successful." But it should be noted that sometimes adding some peppermint oil in drinking water also helps too, but most importantly is to get the body alkalized sufficiently and keep the blood sugar low to allow recovery, which I might take 100 mg of sodium vanadate, weekly or twice weekly, although B1 Thiamine with B50 vitamin B complex are helpful too in controlling blood sugar, which helps the raise the body's immune system.

Wait.. This is not for genital herpes here, what we're talking about. Is it? So BHT is for type 1 not type 2? I have genital herpes warts that I have not been able to get rid of... The first outbreak I had and cannot get rid of them. What do I need to do? What do I take what don't I take? What do I do topically to get rid of this?
