Is Quickclear a scam?

Question:
Hi has anyone tried this product (QUICKCLEAR)? ive just been diagnosed wtih hsv2 (could the doctor be wrong could it be shingles???) anyway, ive started on valtex one a day as a suppression and i saw this product claiming it gets rid of the virus. even as im writing this im guessing ive just done my money.

im taking 1000mg of c
multivitamin/antioxidant
500mg l-lysine
2 salmon oil caps

a day.

its very scary all the not knowing. I did ask my doctor some questions when he said i had hsv2 but i was crying so much i dont remember it all. maybe i will go back in tomorrow.

anyway, if anyone has any ideas on supplements that are helpfulor foods that are really great immune boosters i would love to hear from you as i would really like NOT to be taking drugs every day. also i dont know what hte side effects of valtrex are.

wish we werent here on this website.
:oops:

Answer:
I, too take lysine, although I only take about 500mgs a day when NOT having an outbreak, and then I jack it up to 2000mgs during. I also take about 1000mgs of C and a Bcomplex vitamin. That is it. nothing fancy schmancy. Until recently, I went about six months of no outbreak, if I felt "the tingle" down there, then I would up my lysine.

I think I had this recent outbreak because I was eating nuts, and a TON of oatmeal! (I made oatmeal cookies too... :oops: ) I didn't know oatmeal was a MAJOR force in contributing to outbreaks. So....no more of that. Ahem.

This outbreak I am having now is just brutal. Add to this I am having my normal monthly "girl problems" and I am just so bummed right now, but I have jacked up my lysine intake. I hope that helps. I tried taking acyclovir and I think it made things WORSE for me. When this outbreak first started....I took the meds...and it felt as though the one tiny lesion was going away. After a week of meds, I felt great (except THEN I got weird bumps on my lips...this has happened before!) Stopped taking the meds and almost immediately, i felt another outbreak coming on. I said screw it, I am going to ride this crap out and NOT take the meds. And that is what I am doing. So, lets see what happens after this outbreak. If I can go another 5 or 6 months outbreak free, then I shall continue doing what I am doing and I will NEVER take meds again. They just seem like a joke to me. A very expensive joke.

If I start to get outbreaks every month again like I was before, I might alter my diet some and do suppressive therapy for a few months, just to get my outbreaks in control. But I am like you, I don't want to take meds all the time. yuk.

Unfortunately, this virus affects us ALL differently and we all have different 'triggers" to set this virus off. You kinda have to be your own guinea pig. And watch out for those folks who say they have the "cure" for this shit. they don't. They just like the looks of your wallet.

Good luck to you ...have fun being your own personal guinea pig. Let us know what works for you too...it may help another person on here!

Answer:
oh shit. i was considering switching to oatmeal in the mornings. thank god i read your post. i dont know about quick clear but coraphor helped for me.... although you cant expect anything to completely stop outbreaks cold. but it helps. ouch is right - *Unfortunately, this virus affects us ALL differently and we all have different 'triggers" to set this virus off.

Answer:
can i just say thanks so much for bothering to reply. Ive been on panic stations just trying to devour as much info as possible

so im going to take the valtrex for six months, give up drinking wine, up the vitamins (just bought chlorella and iron yesterday) and wait and see.

my dr seemed to think that outbreaks generally not as strong as the initial one but guess there is no knowing at this stage.

i gave him all the crapola i had printed out about quickclear to read this morning and he said he would look it over to see if he thought any value in the herbs but im guessing its probably just a dream for sale.


is it possible to have 1 outbreak and then never again? or is this wishful thinking.

ive felt like crap for a week and a half. when you get an outbreak do you feel sick? how do you go to work if your neck glands are swollen and you are sore?
or do you just get pain in the area after initially contracting hsv2?

Answer:
:cry:

Answer:
hey there woo,

oh absolutely when I have an outbreak I feel like crap. I have had headaches the past few days, and I am really tired.

Again, I would not go overkill on all the herbs and stuff. This is typical for "newbies" to herpes to go loco (crazy) over using new products and stuff....sometimes we overdo it and make ourselves worse.

I will find the list of bad/good foods that might possibly trigger herpes and post it here for you and bledflower. I just recently ate all KINDS of oatmeal and THEN oatmeal cookies to boot (mmm homemade.) next thing I know....UGH! a super bad outbreak. SO, no more oatmeal for me. Live and learn, eh? owwwie! the hard way! :lol: However, it says (and people on here will tell you) nuts are bad, but honestly, I haven't had a problem with nuts. Especially when I was doing a high protein, low carb diet, I ate a TON of almonds and I NEVER had an outbreak then. Maybe the answer there is all the delicious, yummy, meat and proteins I was consuming then. (I REALLY need to get back on this diet!)
And lysine lysine lysine.

I will post that for you too Bledflower, I happened upon it here somewhere, but I will repost it all the same. Might help alot for folks to play around with different foods and stuff.

I have read posts on this chorphor (sp) stuff...I may try it, not to HEAL me, but to just have it clear up the outbreak quicker. Worth a shot. Hydrogen peroxide does wonders and keeps things "sanitized" but the healing process is not neccesarily quick.

Back to WOO....there ARE some lucky souls who have one, maybe two outbreaks in their life, then nothing ever again...OR one in like, five years or something . Again, everyone is different, this virus affects us all differently. I NEVER had outbreaks until I was 6 months pregnant with my son, and now I have them all the time. It is weird. I am sure hormones, stress, crappy diet have all played a roll in this. Don't let yourself worry about it too much, that will also make things worse (as the recent stress you had might have 'triggered" an outbreak. Also, don't go overkill on the garlic. They have those garlic pills you can take, might be better. (and less stinky! hehehe!)

Try your best to relax, and take everything (herbs/meds/etc) in moderation. you are lucky you get valtrex so cheap......compared to us here in the US. it can also help with your outbreaks if they are frequent.....good luck woo!

The same thing happened to my lip while I was on Acyclovir after my first ob..... I, too take lysine, although I only take about 500mgs a day when NOT having an outbreak, and then I jack it up to 2000mgs during. I also take about 1000mgs of C and a Bcomplex vitamin.
