Background Bees create propolis, a natural resin, to build their hives. Propolis is made from the buds of conifer and poplar trees, beeswax, and other bee secretions. Historically, propolis was used in Greece to treat abscesses. Ook bij Herpes Zoster (gordelroos) heeft Propolis Zalf een goede werking. Today, propolis is commonly found in chewing gum, cosmetics, creams, lozenges, and skin creams. It is frequently used in foods and beverages with the claim that it can maintain or improve health.
Propolis has shown promise in dentistry for dental caries and as a natural sealant and enamel hardener. The effectiveness of propolis against herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 and parasitic infections has been demonstrated in early studies. Why haven’t you heard about bee propolis? Numerous case reports have demonstrated propolis to be a potent allergen and sensitizing agent. Medical studies have confirmed that propolis is an effective treatment for the sores caused by genital herpes. Re: Holistic/Herbal Remedy Trial So I got my Propolis capsules and tea tree oil. It was also shown to have a synergistic effect with existing antiretrovirals, and is reportedly being used to reduce the side effects of HAART (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy).
Graag zou ik van dat alles af geraken want het is erg irriterend. A resin made by bees, propolis is full of immune-boosting, infection-fighting antioxidants and flavonoids. The pills contain a mix of anti-fungal to stop the spread of the sores an antibiotic to help with the virus itself and some anti-inflammatory medication for the swelling. Diets must be heavy in B vitamin-rich foods, including plenty of whole grains, foods like nutritional yeast, natural foods like bee pollen, green foods like the spirulina, the blue green algae, and all kinds of seaweeds. 11, 13, 16-18 In cultures, propolis inhibits the growth of various viruses and fungi including herpes, influenza, rota, candida and aspergillus. I’ve removed diet sodas (fake sugar), caffeine (I was doing that anyway though), most sugars and candies, and chocolate. re: trying some things Just got the monolaurin and took my first dose of it as well.
Some evidence suggests that propolis may speed up healing and improve sight. However, human research is needed before a recommendation can be made. Early studies suggest that using a propolis mouthwash may reduce plaque formation, reduce bacteria in the mouth, relieve dental pain and gum inflammation (periodontitis), be useful as a sealant after root canal surgery, and help heal dental wounds. Early study using a gel prepared with propolis and caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) applied to the gums found that the gel provided comfort and was accepted by the volunteers. Although there has been promising research, particularly in the area of plaque reduction, most studies have been small, low quality, and not fully convincing. Better studies are needed before a recommendation can be made. A Brazilian commercial ethanol propolis extract, formulated to ensure physical and chemical stability, was found to inhibit oral candidiasis, a fungal infection of the mouth.
More studies are needed to determine if propolis is safe and effective for treating oral candidiasis. Laboratory studies report that propolis may have action against viruses, including herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2. Early results from poorly designed human studies suggest that propolis used on the skin may improve lesions from genital herpes virus infections. However, without better human research, including comparisons to prescription drugs, firm conclusions cannot be drawn. Animal and laboratory studies suggest that propolis may help treat various types of infections. If you are up to taking one more herbal helper, I would go grab yourself some wild oregano oil. Make sure it is the wild stuff from the health food store.
Additional research is needed before a recommendation can be made. These diseases are characterized by the death of bone at the hip joint (called the femoral head). Limited human research has tested propolis injections into the joint after hip replacement surgery for these conditions. I’ll definitely add it to my growing list of things. Based on anti-inflammatory effects observed in laboratory research, propolis has been proposed as a possible treatment for rheumatic and other inflammatory diseases. However, there is currently not enough scientific human study to make a clear recommendation. Some evidence suggests that propolis and some of its components may stop the growth of Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium that causes stomach ulcers.
Further studies are needed to determine safe and effective doses of propolis to treat stomach ulcers. The application of raw honey saved countless lives following the horrible Bali nightclub fire of 2003 in which over 400 people were trapped and burned. They often have not been thoroughly tested in humans, and safety and effectiveness have not always been proven. I am sure you know all about it and how the virus works. I like to do as much research as possible to try and understand how it works and how best to combat it. I am going to try and find some marine algae and give that a whirl. Ik kauwde ze zoals kauwgom en plakte het op zijn voeten.
Ginseng is known to have the ability to strengthen the immune response, which may make it helpful in fighting off the effects of an active herpes episode. Bee Pollen Herpes people who experience numerous outbreaks can take oral antivirals daily for up to one year to decrease virus activity and prevent recurrences. One antiviral drug that has been proven to be effective against the virus that causes herpes simplex is acyclovir. How many tests do you guys have over there?. We only have a pcr test which needs a sample of a spot and a blood test that tests for the HSV2 antibodies. There appear to be problems with both. Safety and effectiveness have not been established.
A dose of two 250 milligram propolis capsules has been taken by mouth three times daily for three days to treat bacteria in the urine. A 20-30% propolis extract has been taken by mouth for five days to treat giardiasis (milligram dosing not clearly described). Safety and effectiveness have not been established. A dose of 2 milliliters of aqueous propolis extract has been injected every 14 days for up to seven months for Legg-Calve-Perthes disease/avascular necrosis of the hip. Effectiveness and safety have not been established, and dosing should only be under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional. A 10% ethanol extract of propolis has been taken by mouth over five days for giardiasis (milligram dosing not established). Note that ethanol (alcohol) preparations should be used cautiously in children.
Safety and effectiveness have not been established. A 0.5 milliliter propolis nasal spray (Nivcrisol®) has been used once weekly for five months in preschool children (average age six years) and school-age children (mean age nine years) over a five-month period to treat respiratory infections. Safety and effectiveness have not been established. An herbal preparation (Chizukit) containing 50 milligrams per milliliter (mg/mL) of echinacea, 50 mg/mL of propolis, and 10 mg/mL of vitamin C, or placebo (5 milliliters and 7.5 milliliters twice daily for ages 1-3 years and 4-5 years, respectively) has been used for 12 weeks. I never took any antivirals and I wonder whether this made me build up an immunity shield a it quicker than taking all the antiviral medicines?. I am not actually sure how they work – do they try to suppress the virus from coming out of its hiding spot?. Food and Drug Administration does not strictly regulate herbs and supplements.
There is no guarantee of strength, purity or safety of products, and effects may vary. You should always read product labels. In theory, if you can take the antivirals to reduce or prevent replication, and your antibodies can destroy the virus you should be able to get rid of it… Consult a healthcare provider immediately if you experience side effects. Patients should avoid propolis if they have had allergic/hypersensitivity reactions to propolis, Populus nigra L. (black poplar), poplar bud, bee stings/bee products (including honey), or Balsam of Peru. There are multiple reports of swelling, fluid collection, redness, burning, eczema, swelling, fever, and other allergic reactions (including a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis) with repeated use of propolis on the skin.
I’m hoping this helps. Allergic contact stomatitis has been associated with the therapeutic use of propolis. I’ve been applying that and it seems like it really helps. Only bummer is it is brown and stains… in the underwear… Succes ermee! Propolis – A resin made by bees, propolis is loaded with antioxidants that help fight infection and boost immune function.
HopefullyCured, how many drops of Oregano Oil do you take a day. I am trying another serving of it diluted in 20 oz of water and it is still pretty terrible. How do you usually take it?
