Cold Sores

A wakeup call that your immune system is weak

Cold sores are caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus, they become noticeable from 3 – 10 days after infection and can last as long as three weeks if not treated.

Treatment is vital from when you fist notice a cold sore developing to prevent further spread.

Reducing the risk of infections

Our world really is a melting pot of compounds, enzymes, bacteria’s and viruses. Some of them are beneficial and some of them are potentially harmful. We know and this knowledge is backed by the scientific evidence that when we are fit and healthy we become less susceptible to infection by any pathogen.

But building community is akin to building good health fitness which starts before birth with the parents. Assuming the parents are in good health and the living conditions are adequate, a new child gains its initial immunity from the colostrum in its mother’s milk. When a child is young there are a great many pathogens that can cause health problems.

The most common

Modern antibiotics are one of the primary tools of allopathic medicine in treating disease, but viruses and bacteria are adapting and we are unable to create new antibiotics to defeat them.

As our population grows and we live packed more tightly together, the risk of disease increases and when our immune system becomes weak, we become more susceptible to the bacteria and viruses which cause disease.

In nature we have this idea of the survival of the fittest. For example the Lions in Africa will hunt down and

Treatment of Infections

In the era of ayurved, sciences such as pathology and bacteriology were not developed and those such as virology had not even been imagined. The microscope had not been invented either and thus, infections were described in terms of pitta-dushti (pitta=one of the basic body constituents, dushti=aggravation) or rakta-dushti (rakta=blood tissue).

Antibiotics were largely unknown to ayurved but the principles behind them had been thought of by ayurvedic scholars. Thus the use of colloidal silver, copper and gold had value as a preventive medicine, and these compounds also played a role in healing.

In this article we will deal with some common infectious conditions like vrana (ulcers), pitika (acnes and boils), and arbuda
