I am a woman, age, 33. I have been suffering from bi-monthly outbreaks of genital herpes simplex. Needless to say, this has severely impeded my ability to have a decent relationship with a man. You told me to stop all foods with sugar including fruit juice, coffee, marijuana and other recreational drugs. You also advised a diet based on whole grains, vegetable protein supplemented with fish. You also administered weekly acupuncture treatments for about three months and during that time prescribed a Planetary formula (HerbaDerm) and a tea to take daily. At first, my symptoms occurred with less frequency and less severity. Gradually this continued to progress until now, six months later, I have not had a herpes outbreak for two months straight and happily I am beginning a relationship with a man who I like very much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
