The recent Intestinal Flora thread didn't have many posts(there are other opinions youll find w a search but no studies Ive ever head of yet, so your on your own deciding quantity). Since the only predicament with larger doses(over a few oz a day) is the ? are we killing those helpful and needed colon organisms. There is a lot of advice on the matter but little agreement or proof of basis between the extremes. Some people(me for one) have taken up to 8 oz a day for days and weeks at a time with no negative experienced, but perhaps they wernt quite aware of what was happening inside either.
The difficulty as you probably know with that class of pathogen(HS) is that is hides from antiviral activity so effectively until opportunity arises and (apparently because of that hiding out ability,(just like AG+ hides in a body systems created structure,) is hard to put down) unless our immune system or an added antiviral agent is introduced right at outset, most often the outbreak runs its own course for a time.
Interfacing the CS with the virus can be done topically, straight using a plastic bandage/covering or by mixing the with: Aloe Vera(1 to 1), glycerin or ect ect.
If I were you and didn't have an outbreak, Id start with a daily oral dose as a prophylactic, of a couple of oz and at the first sign of an outbreak Id have no problem with an initial dose of 8 oz then dosing 2 oz three or four X in a 24 hr period.
