It is estimated that around 90% of the population worldwide suffer from the herpes simplex virus. This virus is common among both adults and children. Children get infected by this virus mostly due to direct contact with adults. Many people in the developed world are affected by this cold sore or fever blister virus more than Asians.
Once you get affected by this virus it makes you a host and stays there with you till the end of your life. Temporary cure is available for this virus but there is no permanent cure. It is important to note that this virus is anaerobic which means that it cannot survive in environments where there is oxygen.
The cold sore virus lays dormant for its entire life if your immune system is strong. This virus needs an acidic environment and it is anaerobic which means that it doesn’t need air to survive. It survives without air, oxygen acts as a toxic gas for the virus. Adequate exercise coupled with good intake of anti – oxidants makes the virus dormant. This virus may lie dormant for years without any blister formation but in some cases it may appear regularly and at the same place again and again. There have been certain cases where this virus has created huge medical problems.
Oxygen is very important for the survival of humans. Oxygen supports some of the vital functions such as digestion, blood flow, brain function, heartbeat, immune response, digestion, etc. If oxygen level in the body gets below the normal level then every function of the body suffers and creates diseases much greater than this virus. Cigarettes suck out oxygen from the body and create mental fog.
Oxygen plays very vital role in protecting and enriching our immune system. Cells which are the least oxygenated are most susceptible to diseases and viruses. These viruses colonize and degenerate the metabolism. These cells multiply and destroy other cells in their vicinity (Cancer). Herpes simplex virus is anaerobic and it cannot survive in places where the level of oxygen is high.
There are oxygen supplements in liquid form which provide oxygen to the cells. Anything in liquid form is easily absorbed by the body. Improved levels of oxygen can act as lethal weapon against the herpes virus.
