How Hypericum Mysorense and Hypericum Hookeranum suppress Herpes Simplex?

Hello Dr. Arjunan, I am interested in two herbs identified in this news report - Hypericum Mysorense and Hypericum Hookeranum and their ability to supress HSV1 completely. Might you be able to tell me how I may get a treatment consisting of this herbal remedy from India or provide me with a contact to herbal traditional healers in Nilgrili Hills area. Thank you very much. NEW DELHI, Aug 23 (Bernama) -- Indian scientists claim to have identified two plants in the Nilgiri hills that may contain a cure for life-threatening diseases caused by Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), said the Press Trust of India (PTI) in a report Monday. The finding assumes significance as drugs currently available to treat HSV infections are very few and not efficient. P Vijayan and co-workers at the J S S College of Pharmacy in Ootacamund in southern state of Tamil Nadu report that extracts of Hypericum Mysorense and Hypericum Hookeranum suppressed HSV infection 100 per cent.

there are many claims the ultimate fact is our body is good enough to produce the immunity which can eliminate the virus from the body. and for the good immunity there should be proper nutrition. instead of searching in the hills it is better if we search in ourselves and activate the appropriate system to boost the immune response.
