Whether you call them cold sores or fever blisters, they are both the same thing - oral herpes outbreaks. Each year nearly 97 million folks in the US alone will suffer distracting, painful and embarrassing cold sore outbreaks. And most of them will again go to the drug store to buy some new cold sore remedy that turns out no better than the last oral herpes treatment they used. It is a darn shame really. As far as cold sore remedies go, any over-the-counter cold sore treatment is strictly for comfort. Research shows that none of them have ever been shown to be a cold sore cure.

You can stop cold sore outbreaks and the social herpes tag. You can stop them before they ever get to your lip or nose. Creating an internal cold sore cure is as easy as taking a GOOD vitamin supplement.

Yes- a good vitamin supplement is, by far, your most basic cold sore treatment program. And, in fact, there is no one on the face of the planet that would not benefit immensely by taking a GOOD vitamin and mineral supplement. Even nutrition experts that are very particular as to what they eat - yes, even these people take vitamin supplements. Why? Because they know that even with a nearly perfect diet, especially in today's environment, they benefit from the extra supplementation of basic vitamins and minerals. Imagine how much more you and I can experience with our far-from-perfect diet.

Diseases develop when your health level is lower than it should be. Your immune system is only as good as your health level. Oral herpes outbreaks occur because the herpes simplex virus is opportunist virus that senses when it can get to the surface of your lip and replicate - without interference by your immune system.
If you get a cold sore, it may be because of some isolated incident of stress that weakened your defenses. If you get several cold sores or fever blisters a year, it is a sure sign that you need to strengthen your immune system with nutritional supplementation.

I apologize if I sound preachy. It's that I really do care about you. And research continually shows nutritional supplementation is imperative today.

Cold sores, fever blisters or oral herpes are not life threatening. Certainly not. Nor are most forms of common colds and flu. But if you are getting recurrent cold sores, it is a sign that you have deeper problems to come in the future. Nutritionists and health professionals have been stating this for 50 years and even the American Medical Association has finally gotten on board (see my last post). You can learn to cope with the occasional cold sore, but other chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart problems are not so tolerable. The threat of a potential outbreak of bird flu, which too is a virus, plus other mutated viruses, are constantly hanging over our head.

Taking a good vitamin supplement will go a long way in cold sore prevention - plus protect you from all other chronic diseases and virus threats. It won't make you "bullet proof" but it will certainly put the odds greatly in your favor for a long, happy, healthy life. Plus, supplementation has been proven to make you look younger very quickly after starting a nutrition program.
