Herpes virus has no permanent cure but it can be prevented. There is no permanent cure even for common cold, measles, flu, chicken pox – it is a herpes related condition and mumps. We all have suffered from these ailments at one point or other and these viruses are still in our body. That is why you should be careful of drugs which claim to be the answer for herpes treatment.

In order to prevent the outbreak of herpes, the state of the body's immune system is very important. If the body's immune system is weak, then it will be subjected to viral attacks and illness and is the cause of various diseases.

The state of immune system in the body depends on various physical and psychological factors which can be controlled by us and if you do have herpes, it will be a cue for you to improve your diet and quality of life. The causes of herpes are mainly lack of sleep, improper diet and excessive stress.

The following steps can be useful for treatment for herpes and improve your immune system.

Stress is the cause of several problems and it should not be underestimated. Anxiety and stress will often cause outbreaks of herpes. Yoga, relaxing by meditation and simple exercises are the various ways to avoid stress. They also help you to mentally deal with the various problems positively and calmly.

Fresh fruit and vegetable juices contain antioxidants, minerals and vitamins and consuming them is an excellent way to boost your immune system and get rid of the harmful toxins in your body. Juices are easier to digest and green vegetable juices are supposed to be the best. The supplements which reduce the outbreaks are Lysine, Vitamin C, Zinc and Bioflavonoids. A natural immune booster is Echinecea. These help in herpes simplex treatment.

Herpes is only a viral condition and accepting it will help you recover faster. You can join an online support community to exchange stories and moral support and discuss ways to prevent cold sores.

Apart from the above, we should work at making our bodies strong and boosting our immune system to prevent us from catching the virus and help in cold sores treatment.

There are two types of herpes virus – HSV1 is associated with lip, face and mouth infections and is the cause of cold sores and fever blisters. The second is genital herpes and both are very painful infections. Both of them reside in the nerves that supplies sensation. The virus ‘buds off' from the end of nerves and infects the skin cells which produces a cluster of painful, pale blisters which are highly infectious.

Type 1 infection can reoccur on any part of the body but it does not pose any serious risk to the general health of a person.

Herpes simplex virus causes infections of skin and mucous membranes and is a cause of other serious infections in the body. This virus stays in the body for life. It may also after newborns and in extreme cases can cause mental retardation, severe eye problems or even death.
