Course: Naturopathic Approach to Herpes Simplex Virus
Naturopathic Approach to Herpes Simplex Virus
Emaline Brown, ND

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a ubiquitous and troublesome skin condition. It is characterized by blistering sores that eventually burst and leave a painful, ulcerated base. There is no known cure and herpes often reoccurs throughout a person’s life. Although oral antiviral medications are generally well-tolerated and convenient, some patients prefer a more holistic, immune-supportive approach to treat and prevent flares. This course discusses naturopathic remedies for both the prevention and treatment of HSV.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and standard of care for HSV infections
  • Compare dietary approaches for the prevention and treatment of HSV infections
  • Recognize the value of topical botanical and nutraceutical-based treatments for HSV infections
