ok so, i only just started taking that herbal oral supplement h-control, but i have definite news on h-balm. h-balm is a topical treatment, a blend of essential oils and there are two kinds. one is a daily suppressive treatment and the other is extra strength, for use during outbreaks. i bought both online on the forces of nature (organic essential oils for all kinds of ailments) website. i was a bit skeptical of the efficacy of essential oils against a viral infection, sounded a bit wishy-washy to me, but i read into the ingredients and the extra strength formula contains naturally occurring terpene oxides which are effective virucidal agents. Both formulas also contain ingredients with strong antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities.
i was in the midst of an outbreak, so i haven’t yet tried the daily h-balm but i have so much to say about h-balm extra strength. it is the bomb. first of all, it soothes the area immediately. i was going through a moderately painful outbreak and i had nothing to treat it except lysine and red marine algae supplements that i take daily anyway. it soothed the whole area with a happy tingly warm menthol-y sensation so that i could actually move around and function without the outbreak bothering me. as directed, i used it 3-4 times a day (which i was glad to do as it was the only thing that could soothe the area enough for me to focus on other things) and a little less than three days later the outbreak was pretty much gone (just a slight bit of tenderness so i just kept using it on as it has a lot of ingredients to speed up the skin’s healing process). it is AMAZING. acyclovir didn’t even clear up my first outbreak this fast.
i read a lot of reviews by people that said the smell bothered them but personally i like the smell. it smells the tiniest bit medicinal but, as a person who sometimes wears essential oils instead of perfume (hippy, i know) i found the smell pleasant and comforting.
after such an amazing experience with the extra strength h-balm, i’m pretty comfortable relying on h-balm daily for suppressive treatment. and i have high hopes for h-control.
go alternative medicine!

So I was meditating yesterday and had a pretty strong vision, which has never happened before. I’ve had.. Experiences but never anything so pin pointed to an exact message. I’ve been asking for guidance lately, guidance to someone or something to help me find my own purpose. I’ve been practicing meditation for over two years now but this was definitely something deeper… Like a trance. I dont think I can comprehend into words any visual parts of this vision, but just an overwhelming feeling to help people heal. Many faces I saw ones I don’t recall ever seeing before. Right now I am a CNA, nurses aide, and am starting school. I (was) considering alternative medicine. And now I feel like my heart is completely in the right place. Alternative or natural medicine is anything pretty much not pharmaceutical all natural healing, and then yesterday meet two people with degrees in this. Totally by chance. And after talking to them and Even just meeting two on the same day as this meditation has me
Convinced. Healing people’s mind body and soul will be my goal :) bridging the importance of mind effects on the body.
