Increase Herpes Research Funding

4,697 Letters Sent So Far

Please increase research funding to promote a cure and better treaments for HSV 1 and 2.

Herpes is a national, and worldwide epidemic. It increases one's chances of acquiring HIV, it causes blindness, it has been linked to Alzheimer's and certainly causes depression, anxiety and untold suffering amongst the afflicted and their loved ones. Additionally, herpes makes individuals who have AIDS more infectious.

The CDC estimates that 48 million people in the United States alone suffers from genital herpes. It is estimated that there are 500,000 new cases each year in the United States alone. Various estimates indicate the direct costs of treating genital herpes alone to be over 1 billion dollars per annum. This does not take into account productivity losses and the costs to treat resulting depression, etc. Additionally, this also does not reflect the economic burden associated with HSV-1 or oral/facial herpes which affects as many as 50% of the United States population and as many as 90% of the US population 50 years of age and older.

As a signer of this petition, taxpayer and proud citizen of the United States I respectfully ask that you do everything within your powers to increase research funding for this terrible disease!

The following are the achieved results for the cure of sicknesses caused by the herpes virus varieties 1, 2 and 3 , and also Human Papilloma Virus as well, which nowadays these diseases are considered incurable, and all this work has been the results of investigation in the last 8 years. It should be considered that all the investigations were conducted with the minimum of equipment and financed by me, I used visual tests as evidences, pictures, and in some cases PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technique to detect the HPV.

1.- Herpes Virus Eradication.

I started the investigation 7 years ago with the herpes virus eradication : oral, genital and zoster type using electrical current with almost 100% of efficacy treating the simple and easy cases as well as the severe ones using only a pair of pads, a signal generator and an amplifier; or hydro electrical treatment in severe cases. It is worth clarifying that up until this day these diseases are considered incurable therefore once a person comes into contact with the virus and gets infected the person will carry the virus their entire life. It does not have to be that way anymore!

During the investigation I discovered some of the following important aspects:

1.- Sensibility.
The viruses, in general, regardless of the type are highly sensitive at the passage of electrical current, they are eliminated!

2.- The levels of electrical current and voltage
These procedure is completely safe and harmless for a person, a device called EMS, TEN or EMS/TEN, is used in the treatment and both work with a 9 volts battery and are approved by FDA in U.S.A.

3.- The electrical treatment parameters were:

a. Use 1 mille ampere (mA) for a pulse generator; if a sinusoidal or square wave form generator is used then it should be applied 5 mA. Treat one by one the affected area, each part from 5 to 10 minutes lasting.

b. Use the generator maximum frequency to reduce the voltage needed.

4.-Herpes virus elimination.
The procedure to elimination of the active herpes virus (causing the common cold sores when they are out the nervous system cell where they are hidden and protected) is to place a pad over the cold sore (affected area) and the other pad positioned on the side 5 to 7 centimeters away.

5.- Latent virus.
When the Virus lies dormant or latent, is not known in which part of the body it lodges, just a small amount remains in a place where the infection started; I have found hidden viruses within the scalp.

The treatment is safe and easy so it can be applied by the affected person himself. The TEN, EMS are approved by the FDA, therefore all electric current levels are proved to be safe to the person.

7.- Cost.
The required devices for the stimulation can be purchased in any country around the world or online at a lower cost of $70.00 USD.

HSV virus is infecting many people such as myself. I am glad their is a cure being established. Thank god but i hope enough funding is reached for a cure.
Millions of people are suffering and millions more are infected. Some problems CAN be solved with more funding. HSV is one of those issues. Please fund research for a cure.
