There are more than 40 million people in the world who are suffering from herpes today. That is a grim statistic when you consider that most people will end up spending the rest of their lives saddled with the condition.

So is it possible for you to prevent the herpes outbreaks? And if this is the case, how can this be done? One of the first things that you have to realize is that although there are several natural methods which you can use to stop herpes outbreaks they will often take some time to get into your system.

It’s also true to say that what works for one may not work for another. So some of the ways to get rid of herpes may work well for you or they may not work for you at all. On a lighter note there are quite a few ways in which you can get rid of herpes or at least stop herpes outbreaks.

To treat herpes and other conditions one of the best ways to start is at the beginning so to speak. What I mean is to set your immune system up to work at its optimum capacity. Unfortunately as we get older the body’s immune system has to deal with more and more which makes it harder and harder to control or stop herpes outbreaks.

The problem often comes from all of the toxins which remain in the body. These are remnants of numerous things such as heavy metals, processed foods and environmental factors; the list of items which cause the problems is huge and much too big to list here.

The point is; these factors force your immune system to work harder and harder, and it becomes almost impossible for your body to get rid of herpes.

So what can you do to stop herpes outbreaks?

Fast; although fasting will not get rid of herpes in itself it will remove a lot of the toxins from the body which in turn allows the immune system to recover and thus fight the herpes simplex virus. If you do nothing else we would encourage you to do regular fasts in order to keep your immune system working properly. If done properly, fasting has the potential to stop herpes outbreaks.
