I suppressed my HSV II for several months with acyclovir and the usual diet and physical constraints. After about 3 months of no outbreak, I stopped the acyclovir and did all the things that ensure an outbreak. When the outbreaks are frequent they aren't as large as when the outbreaks are far apart. Signs of viremia: fever, lymphandenitis (sore lymph nodes in the groin), aching all over (similar to the symptoms we all experienced when we first experienced HSV II) and general malaise need to be present for this technique to work. After I had significant symptoms of viremia, I drew up 10 cc of venous blood from my arm and injected it into my gluteal muscle (Caution: ask a nurse or a qualified health care worker how to due this to avoid injury to the sciatic nerve, they may also assist you in the venapunture to obtain the viremic blood) The point of this is to stimulate production of antibodies to the HSV, an ectodermal virus. Ectodermal tissues are not good producers of antibodies (skin and neural tissues). Endodermal tissues (muscles) are good producers of antibodies. Since doing this treatment about 8 years ago, my outbreaks have become so infrequent that I can't even remember the last one. Prior to the treatment, outbreaks were continuous for weeks at a time and had occurred for several years. I have repeated this treatment maybe three times in the last eight years. A vascular surgeon in Chicago developed this treatment years ago. I don't recall his name. He recently passed at nearly 100 years of age. He called it “autohemotransfusion”. I introduced the idea of waiting and creating conditions for a viremic episode. This really helped me. I hope it helps you.
