Natural Home Remedies for Cold Sores

Cold sores are a very painful and unsightly problem that is triggered by the herpes simplex virus, which often remains dormant for long period of time within our bodies. People who suffer from cold sores often find the problem to be a recurring one, in spite of using antiviral medications prescribed by their doctor or those that are available over the counter. A cold sore will usually disappear after about two weeks, but the fact is that they almost always return, regardless of what you do to prevent them. Many people become discouraged with this state of affairs, and that’s when they start looking for home remedies for cold sores that will permanently cure the condition.

If you’re one of these people, I have some exciting news for you. There’s a natural cold sore treatment that really works! Dr. Derek Shepton, an alternative medicine specialist, did a great deal of research on the condition and discovered precisely how to rid yourself of them forever using only all-natural home remedies for cold sores. This program is discussed in a step by step, easy to understand style in his book entitled Cold Sore Free Forever. And the best part is that this book is in electronic format so you can download it immediately and get started on your program to completely eliminate cold sores from your life!

Dr. Shepton starts out by giving you a thorough overview of what a cold sore actually is, and offers an easy to understand explanation of the herpes simplex virus, the culprit that triggers these painful eruptions. Then he moves onto some fascinating information on the elements in your body that make it easy for the herpes virus to thrive. For example, you probably are unaware that oxygen and herpes is not a good mix. For this reason, one of the recommendations that Dr. Shepton makes in Cold Sore Free Forever is that you need to raise your oxygen levels. Another situation that affects the herpes virus is your pH levels. It’s been shown that the virus is more active when your levels are 7 or lower, meaning that your body is in an acidic state.

But he doesn’t just tell you that you need to do these things, he tells you how to do them in great detail. There are two chapters devoted to step by step instructions on how to increase the level of oxygen in your blood supply and reduce the amount of acidity in your body.

There is also a section on the use of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and toothpaste (yes, toothpaste!). Dr. Shepton gives clear instructions for safely using both of these readily available, over the counter products.

Dr. Shepton wraps up his book Cold Sore Free Forever by explaining how you can live a cold sore free life forever. There are many relatively minor changes you can make to your lifestyle that will help you permanently eliminate cold sores.

And the whole approach will actually save you a lot of money over the conventional way of covering up your cold sore problem.
