Viral infections


Use of seaweed (Kelp) for protection against viruses.

Diet design

Research concerning the minimization of incidence and severity of herpes in humans usually involves experiments directed toward four objectives:

(1) Reduction of initial production of herpes infected cells by metabolic or exogenous substances.

(2) Increase in systemic resistance to the establishment of infected cells as growing tissues.

(3) Reduction in rate of growth/reproduction and infection of healthy tissues once they have been established;

(4) Techniques for selective destruction of herpes tissues/cells.


During recent decades there has been increasing recognition that the relative and absolute amounts of ordinary nutrients in the diet can have important effects on all four of these objectives. Nutritional experiments are, however, laborious, time- consuming, empirical, and often practical only in animal systems, so progress has been slow. Even if it doesn't eradicate it, it will extend life. If it extends life long enough it effectively becomes a cure since all any cure does is delay the inevitable.

Historically, there has been no long-term relief for chronic sufferers of herpes simplex infections, let alone a cure. Herpes sufferers are seemingly at the mercy of this viral menace. Despite failure at the eradication of the herpes virus, success in the short term by temporarily suppressing its proliferation has yielded positive results. One such agent, acyclovir, a nucleoside analogue, has been regarded as the drug of choice by the medical community. However, as with most drugs, there are side effects. Treatment with acyclovir relieves symptoms, reduces the amount of infectious virus released from the sores and speeds healing. The treatment does not prevent subsequent attacks or diminish their frequency or severity. The effect of acyclovir in a herpes virus infection is to inhibit the synthesis of viral DNA. Prophylactic courses of oral acyclovir can have a modest impact on recurrent infections, but the cost of the drug and its potential toxicity over the long term do not justify such regimens in most cases. In the majority of cases for genital herpes, general recurrence patterns returned within 8 to 25 days after stopping long-term use.  Are there no alternatives?




The protective effects of some of the poly-anionic substances or polysaccharides present in different seaweed on the reproduction of herpes simplex virus (HSV) and other viruses were first reported almost four decades ago and have been shown to extend to different types of viruses, including viruses that emerge as opportunistic pathogens, herpes simplex virus, and cytomegalic-virus in immune suppressed (e.g., AIDS) patients since 1988. Most used are Irish Moss, Dulse and kelp Laminaria. The family of sulphated polysaccharides is very heterogynous group depending and varies with the different seaweed species. Dumontiaceae is a specific strain of red marine algae shown to contain natural immune-modulatory and antiviral agents. Sulfonated carrageenan's are the elements in marine algae that help fight off local viruses. These grant additional immune system defences and are also believed to help fight against the Herpes Simplex Virus, particularly. More recent research on extracts of red marine algae suggest that specific carbohydrates (sulphated polysaccharides) may inhibit both the DNA and RNA of viral infections and may operate both outside and within infected cells.

 It is at the same time a nutritious food supplement, also useful for weight loss and lowering cholesterol and fat. Sold in quick dissolving capsule provides 250mg of Wild Harvested Dumontiaceae Red Marine Algae. As a food supplement or antiviral agent, take 4 capsules on an empty stomach for 10 - 30 consecutive days on the first sign of viral breakout. Use as often as needed.

Other research done with Dulse a red type seaweed and Irish moss including extracts as used in the food industry. At a dose of virus that infected all of the control mice, 1% solutions of carrageen protected 85% of the inoculated mice. Carrageen is an extract of Irish moss and looks most promising in this respect.

Further studies done and published on mice indicate that vaginal formulations of the sulphated polysaccharide carrageenan are highly effective in protecting mice from herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) infection, using a 1% solutions placed in the vagina of mice. At a dose of virus that would infected half of the control animals, an 1% solutions of either lambda, kappa, or iota carrageen was enough to prevented infection in almost all of the test animals. Publication of further research and concentrations as low as 0.05% protected a large majority of the mice.  Also, researchers did found that other sulphated polysaccharides were less effective or showed no efficacy in preventing HSV-2 infection. These researchers are able to block the reproduction or grow of HIV replication in cell culture at concentrations as low as 0.1-to 0.01-microgram ml-1 without toxicity to the host cells at concentrations up to 2.5 mg ml-1. In addition Sulphated polysaccharides may act synergistically with other anti-HIV drugs. Slow growth as far as virus-drug resistance development and they show activity against HIV mutants that have become resistant to reverse transcriptase inhibitors. There are sprays based on extractions of Irish moss either lambda, kappa, or iota carrageen. The spray/inhaler used to fight cold and flu uses extracts made of Dulse a red type of seaweed. Other way would be to integrate seaweed in your diet or take a few grams a day capsulated.



Because sexual transmission is responsible for the majority of HIV infections worldwide; this transfer is mediated via cells that infect epithelial cells of the genital tract; and because these poly sulphates effectively inhibit cell-cell adhesion, poly sulphates can be potentially effective in a vaginal formulation to protect against HIV infection too. 
Several sulphated seaweed polysaccharides now have shown high antiviral activity against enveloped viruses, including important human pathogens such as human immunodeficiency virus, herpes simplex virus, human cytomegalovirus, dengue virus and respiratory syncytial virus. They can be obtained in major amounts and at low costs, have low toxicity and in some cases, lack anticoagulant effects. Even if the systemic applications have many drawbacks, their structure and mode of action indicate potential for topical uses to prevent virus infection. The herpes simplex viruses attach to cells by an interaction between the envelope glycoprotein C and the cell surface heparin sulphate (HS). The virus-cell complex is formed by ionic interactions between the anionic (mainly sulphate) groups in the polysaccharide and basic amino acids of the glycoprotein, and non-ionic ones depending on hydrophobic amino acids interspersed between the basic ones in the glycoprotein-binding zone. Hypothesis is advanced of the corresponding hydrophobic structures in the polysaccharides. The antiviral activity of the sulphated seaweed polysaccharides is based on the formation of formally similar complexes that block the interaction of the viruses with the cells.



Viral + Glutathione.

Glutathione is probably the most important cellular defence that allows the body to prevent and fight infections and disease. Glutathione is the natural defence of every cell in our bodies working hand in hand and dependent on a plentiful supply of selenium for its existence and function. Glutathione, the most important antioxidant in the body, is that place where sulphur and selenium meet up to protect us from cancer as well as viral infections.

Glutathione plays crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process that neutralizes drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes, beats down viruses, bacteria and reduces toxins and carcinogens as are increasingly present in our environment.

The immune system cannot function properly without plentiful glutathione and antioxidants such as vitamins C and E rely on it to function properly within the body. Glutathione (GSH) and the GSH-replenishing enzymes keep the antioxidant status of normal cells at a level where they can avert ox radical-derived mutations. When we talk about the organic sulphur pathways and sulphur sufficiency we are at the same time touching bee honey because it does contain up to 26% sulphur. It most be produced within and by our own body and cannot added through the digestive system. Within our digestive system certain parts are predominantly neutral, acid like or alkaline and effecting the digestion of food/capabilities in combination with enzymes.
Glutathione is manufactured by every one of our trillions of cells, and the level of glutathione in our cells is predictive of how long we will live. Without the cleaning and chelating work of Glutathione (magnesium and sulphates needed) cells begin to decay as cellular filth and heavy metals accumulate - excellent environments to attract deadly infection. Without sufficient GSH, the body accumulates toxins and acid residues, degenerates rapidly, ages prematurely and dies more easily from viral and bacterial infections.

Low glutathione levels, low cg syndrome or low GSH levels are associated with over 74 diseases or conditions and is a major biological player when it comes to dealing with viral infections. Supplemental GSH has been studied extensively and seen to inhibit viral production indicating and has been seen to be valuable in the prevention and treatment of other haemorrhagic viral infections like dengue.

Over 98,000 scientific studies and articles on Glutathione are recorded in PubMed, the official U.S. Government library of medical research. Glutathione is sulphur based enzyme and can float up to anything and attach itself to it. It is like sticky flypaper; whatever GSH attaches it to cannot escape and is removed from the body. GSH is our body's natural scavenger knows what is normal and belongs and what does not. Obviously, anything that is not normal like bacteria, viruses and fungi will be quickly removed if there is enough GSH present to do the job.

In another major active defensive pathway, glutathione makes sure that all components of the immune system are strong and operating efficiently. Without the interaction of GSH with the immune system it remains weak and unbalanced thus leaving patients with infections, vulnerable to death. It does not matter if a virus or bacteria has mutated or not, it will be recognized by GSH and removed.

GSH is a basic first line of defence and should be used for all life threatening infections. The first step in anti-viral or bacterial medicine is to build the strength of the immune system. Our immune cells are designed to protect us, but what protects the immune cell? Glutathione is the protector of the immune cell and allows newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attack germs and viruses. Glutathione feeds, protects, and strengthens our immune system Glutathione boosts white blood cell production to fight infection, particularly the T-cells, which are called lymphocytes. T-cells are at the core of our immunity, and tailor the body's immune response to pathogens, viral and bacterial infections or anything the cells recognize as being invasive. Studies have shown that Glutathione is food for the immune cells, boosting the strength of lymphocytes. B-cell lymphocytes identify the unwanted pathogen that the T-cells then attack.

GSH protects us from viruses, such as the herpes virus, flu viruses, and probably from Ebola as
well. Our white blood cells are cells help fight off viruses. They need an abundant supply of glutathione to be able to effectively protect us from invading microorganisms and viruses. Inhibition of cellular respiration, oxidation of glutathione oxidation of glutathione and induction of apoptosis has been reported in epithelial cells infected in vitro with influenza A virus (IAV). Extracellular human immunodeficiency virus type 1 viral protein R causes reductions in astrocyte ATP and glutathione levels compromising the antioxidant reservoir. Reduced and oxidized glutathione levels were determined in liver biopsy specimens obtained from patients with chronic liver disease including chronic active hepatitis and cirrhosis. In patients with hepatitis B virus infections, GSH and GSH/GSSG levels were significantly low compared with those in controls. Ingesting Glutathione does not raise Glutathione levels since it is poorly absorbed through the digestive system. The fragile tripeptide (3-amino acid) structure of Glutathione makes surviving the digestive tract a near impossibility. This is why using the above suppositories brings excellent results as do glutathione IVs.

Healthcare providers give glutathione by injection into the muscle for preventing poisonous side effects of cancer treatment (chemotherapy) and for treating the inability to father a child (male infertility). IV glutathione is used to treat diseases related to the brain (Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, MS), liver (alcoholism) or help those with suppressed immunity (HIV or patients undergoing some chemotherapies like cisplatin).

Healthcare providers also give glutathione intravenously for preventing "tired blood" (anemia)
in kidney patients undergoing haemodialysis treatment, preventing kidney problems after heart bypass surgery, treating Parkinson's disease, improving blood flow and decreasing clotting in individuals with "hardening of the arteries" (atherosclerosis), treating diabetes, and preventing toxic side effects of chemotherapy.

Glutathione can be nebulized for treating lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and lung disease in people with HIV disease.

Dr. Julian Whitaker writes, "Alpha lipoid acid also ramps up glutathione synthesis and
significantly enhances detoxification, and we use it at the clinic, along with selenium and silymarin, to treat hepatitis and other liver diseases. Recent research suggests that the "sleep hormone" melatonin boosts glutathione status too, by stimulating production of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase. The association between viral disease and nutrition has long been thought to be due to effects on the host immune system. This theory suggests that when a host is malnourished, the immune system is compromised, and thus increased susceptibility to viral infection will occur. However, the virus itself may also be affected by the nutritional status of the host. This is true for all viral infections and no less true for Ebola. It is one of the basic reasons that separate the survivors from the majority who perish. The difference between life and death can be measured in the severity of cellular stress.

When it comes to human papilloma virus or HPV, or any virus problem for that matter, it is crucial that you are getting adequate amounts of selenium in your diet or using a supplement. Glutathione requires selenium for its production. Selenium is a trace mineral that the body incorporates into proteins to make over 25 different seleno_proteins including the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. Researchers working with the flu virus discovered that animals deficient in selenium were more susceptible to infectious diseases. Test on Animals with a selenium deficiency, were contaminated with the flu virus, the flu virus mutated into a far more virulent form before passing on to the next animal. The AIDS infection rate is highest in those African countries with low levels of selenium in their soil.

The pre-cursors of glutathione synthesis are the amino acids glutamate, glycine and cysteine, with cysteine being the most important amino acid. Dietary sources of glutathione are therefore necessary to replenish stores and avoid losses.



Sulphur itself is another basic nutritional medicine that is instrumental in raising glutathione levels. Glutathione is a sulphur-based amino acid, known in biology as the repair amino acid. No sulphur, no glutathione and the most important sulphur sources are bee honey, cinnamon and turmeric.




Magnesium deficiencies cause glutathione depletion and production of glutathione is also dependent on magnesium. Glutathione synthesis does need glutamic cysteine, glycine, ATP, and magnesium ions to form glutathione. Adding magnesium oxide, chloride, sulphate or citrate will buffer your blood in the alkaline part being around 7,3 or 7,4. 7 being neutral and below 7 it is called acid.

Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our body's biochemical reactions. It does this by controlling the speed of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves through our body and effecting voltage. The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution holds. Therefore, electricity travels slower with higher ph. If we say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast.  Alkaline pH on the other hand, biochemically speaking, is slow and cool. Proteins can be modified both in vivo and in vitro by increases in acidity. In fact pH is the regulatory authority that controls most cellular processes. The pH balance of the human bloodstream is recognized by medical physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry. pH is the acronym for "Potential Hydrogen".


Other substances are very necessary like Vitamin C and E. Glutathione best seen as a body based natural medicinal agent.

Sulphur itself is another basic nutritional medicine that is instrumental in raising glutathione levels. Glutathione is a sulphur-based amino acid, known in biology as the repair amino acid. No sulphur, no glutathione. Even healthy people would benefit from glutathione supplementation though at much lower dosages than people under viral attack. It goes for selenium. Only a little goes a long way to reduce one's chance of dying of cancer.

Our body has several natural defence mechanisms against viruses. The body's first line of defence is the innate immune response, which is non-specific and defends the body against a variety of threats. Inflammation, coughing, sneezing, and a variety of other non-specific defense mechanisms are examples of the innate immune response in action. The adaptive immune system, on the other hand, targets specific threats. T Cell and antibody activation are examples of the adaptive immune system's defence mechanisms. In addition, scientists have developed vaccines and anti-viral drugs to assist the immune system and/or disrupt viral replication mechanisms.

Lymphocytes, or white blood cells, are the body's main defenders against foreign invaders. There are two major types of
lymphocytes, T cells and B cells. Of the T cells, there are T helper, cytotoxic, memory, regulatory, and natural killer cells. Each type of T cell has its own purpose in immune response. Helper cells assist and activate other cells at the first signs of infection, cytotoxic T cells destroy infected cells, preventing more viruses from being released, memory cells store antigens, allowing the body to quickly recognize previous infections to make fighting future infections more efficient, regulatory T cells shut down immune response after an infection has subsided, and natural killer cells can help kill tumour cells. B cells, on the other hand, recognize antigens and develop anti-bodies once the correct antigen for an infection has been found.

Rapidly reproducing strain when an infected person or animal was deficient in selenium or vitamin E. When selenium is deficient, we can assume that glutathione levels will be dramatically lower. "This raises the possibility that selenium deficiency in host populations may actually foster viral replication, possibly triggering outbreaks and perhaps even facilitating the emergence of more virulent viral strains," In the case of MMS iodine is a better safer alternative with many if not all of the same results through the fulfilment of nutritional law instead of the use of a substance that is alien to the body.

The vast majority of Americans consume an excess of acid-forming foods. Research has shown that tumour growth increases in an acid environment. The blood is maintained in the body at a slightly alkaline level of between 7.2 and 7.4.

Eating alkaline foods keeps the blood pH in its ideal range, which is important for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Ideally, the diet should consist of 80 per cent alkaline-forming foods, such as those available from many raw fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. List of recommended alkaline-forming foods:

Fruits: Berries, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, currants, dates, figs, grapefruit, grapes, kiwis, lemons, limes, mangos, melons, nectarines, olives, oranges, papayas, peaches, pears, persimmons, pineapple, quince, raisins, raspberries, strawberries, tangerines, and watermelon. (The most alkaline-forming foods are lemons and melons.)

Vegetables: Artichoke, asparagus, sprouts, beets, bell peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, collards, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, ginger, horseradish, kale, kelp, seaweeds, mustard greens, okra, onions, parsley, potatoes, radishes, spinach, squash, tomatoes, watercress, and yams.

Whole Grains: Amaranth, barley, oats, quinoa, and wild rice.

Fish, chicken, beef, lamb, milk, cheese, beans, brewer's yeast, mung bean sprouts and most fruits and vegetables have more lysine than arginine, except for peas. Gelatine, chocolate, carob, coconut, oats, whole-wheat and, white flour, peanuts, soybeans, and wheat germ have more arginine than lysine.

Ratio of Lysine to Arginine in Certain Foods, by James M. Scutero

The effect of lysine and arginine:

Lysine is known to inhibit the herpes virus and on www.herpes.com/Nutrition.shtml you can find the lysine/arginine ratio for a long list of foods. Lysine inhibits herpes and arginine stimulates it. Apples and pears have the highest ratio of lysine/arginine of any fruits, and much higher than any vegetables except for beets, which has the highest.

Conclusions: in test for anti cancer diets they finally concluded that a strict fruit and vegetable diet had the strongest inhibitory effect. However, when they added large doses of vitamin C to the fruit and vegetable diet they found an even inhibitory affect. It would have been interesting if they could have tested the combination of vitamins C & E with the fruit and vegetable diet. They might have done that had they recognized their synergistic effect.

The book "Cancer" by Matthias Rath, M.D. is devoted entirely to making the case for lysine inhibiting Cancer.

Dr. Rath states that in order for cancer cells to spread (metastasize) they have to penetrate the walls of blood vessels, etc. In order to do this they have to dissolve collagen. The dissolving process requires special enzymes, generated/stimulated by the cancer cells, which bond to the collagen and dissolve it. Lysine stops this process by attaching to the bonding sites preventing the enzyme attack. The connection to lysine inhibiting herpes viruses may be that the viruses have to stimulate the same collagen dissolving process.

Arginine associated with enhancing cancer growth and spread?

It is well known that lysine inhibits herpes while arginine promotes it. That is why the data presented in Diet & Nutrition is presented as a ratio of lysine to arginine. This is what is important to those suffering from herpes. Could it be that arginine does this by enhancing the collagen dissolving process? If we now extend this to cancer, it would predict that a diet rich in arginine would promote the growth and spread of cancer. Supporting evidence: In experiments involving 38 different diets and 1846 non-athymic hairless mice exposed to UV radiation, the researchers discovered that the rate of growth of squamous cell carcinoma varies over a 20, fold range as a function of nutritional balance. This suggests that nutrition should be carefully researched as a useful component of cancer therapy. When we refer back to the mouse studies,
they found any benefit from a fruit and vegetable diet would be totally negated by adding protein to the diet. However, the protein they added was seeds and nuts. If we refer to the table in Diet and Nutrition, we find this source of protein is very high (the highest) in arginine. If the above premise is true, it is no surprise that it counteracted the beneficial approaches. It would have been interesting if they added a different source of protein, such as cheese, which is very high in lysine. Perhaps
they would have found that adding such protein had an inhibitory effect or at least no cancer enhancing effect. Also infer that any effective diet for inhibiting cancer would be very similar to one where a person wants to inhibit the spread of herpes. People with herpes are commonly familiar with this. That is the purpose of the table presented in Diet and Nutrition, which presents sufficient information for people to design their own diets intelligently. The deffinition of protein or fat is not good enough when used for special diets.
There are other studies in which the desired affect was nullified when adding fat. But theres are different fats and fish or cod oil can work different than soy-oil. Saturated or not, omega 3 is much healthier than omega 6 and should possible be reduced or avoided.

One exception might be the consumption of some fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, grapes, elderberries, orange juice, etc. where they are known to have profound health benefits, but they also have a very low lysine/arginine ratio, similar to that of nuts. Even though the ratio is low, so too is the total percentage of protein present and thus total arginine content- unlike that of nuts. I would suspect that the low lysine content could be compensated for with lysine supplementation, improving the ratio.

One could then still benefit from the rest of the highly beneficial phytochemicals in such fruits without stimulating cancer growth. In another experiment they discovered a feed that contained moderately enhanced vitamin C and vitamin E had a strong inhibitory effect. They then tested each separately at the same level and found no benefit from either alone. They concluded that the benefit must have been due to something else. However, as discussed here, vitamins C and E will act as partners were vitamine C can enter the first membrane of a cell and Vitamin E the second. Many cell do have two membranes one letting through water solible substances and the second letting through the oil loving parts.
