Ten to fifteen years ago (about 1990), I developed a treatment for herpes outbreaks (both cold sores and other). At that time I tried to share my discovery with different research groups, but was meet with doubt, and ignored. It is a sensitive subject so I let the discovery go at that time figuring the application method was so obvious that the researchers would discover it on their own.
Recently I had reason to revive my treatment method, and found it still works. I also learned that research had not moved forward in this area and probably never will (most research is motivated by profits and this treatment method canít be patented). Therefore I want to move forward with this treatment discovery myself. I feel it is my responsibility to do so. My problem is my evidence of its effectiveness is limited to only a few trial people (myself being one). I've had cold sores ever since I was a kid so I know the effectiveness of this treatment for me, based on my prior history. What I want to do now is to make this information available to as many people as possible and to also begin an informal study of its effectiveness. I am willing to handle the communications and data collection but I still need to increase my exposure so please feel free to share this information with others and encourage them to contact me regarding any questions or feedback.
It's a basic treatment method that I developed after relating a couple of unrelated pieces of information I found in my earlier activist days (see links below). Basically the treatment is just a tincture of rubbing alcohol and marijuana. The THC kills the herpes virus on contact and cuts recovery time in half (at least). Also, repeated use reduces, and possibly eliminates, future outbreaks (I have a theory about that but need more testing).
For your own information I'm not regarded as a fanatic. I'm actually a well-respected, 44 year old Accountant/CPA, currently working in government, and recently completed a BS degree in computer information systems. I believe enough in my treatment method that I am willing to take the risks required to share it.
Derma Dragon - Tincture of Marijuana
*For External Use Only*
1 Ounce of 70% Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
(Grain alcohol, such as 190 proof Everclear, may work as well but Iíve always used rubbing alcohol. Inexpensive and easy to come by.)
Ĺ Gram Marijuana
(The better the quality, the stronger the tincture.)
1 Glass or plastic container with a tight fitting lid (2-ounce size works well.)
(Most people recommend a dark container. Iíve always used clear ones.)
Pour the alcohol into the container, add the marijuana (Donít grind it up. Loses too much THC.), and put on the lid. Let the mixture sit for at least 2 weeks, but preferably 4, giving an occasional shake to stir things up.
At the first signs of a herpes outbreak (cold sore or other) begin applying the marijuana tincture. I usually give the container a little shake and then apply the alcohol to the site of the outbreak using a Q-tip. Applying the alcohol with a Q-tip seems to work best. I usually apply it twice at each application 3 or 4 times a day. The THC in the alcohol kills the herpes virus on contact reducing the chance of reinfection from that outbreak. I want to say that this treatment method will cure the virus but I believe that point is complicated by many different variables including how long the person has had the virus and the number of points of infection. But it is the best, and cheapest treatment method I have found in my 45 years.
