I have herpes a and. I keep it relatively in control with

I have herpes a and b. I keep it relatively in control with Dynamiclear, vit C and dmso, and outbreaks are rare if ever. The problem is that i often feel tingling sensation on lips and sometimes spread to cheeks and nose, and would feel dry eyes then. It is feeling that virus is active even if i dont have all out outbreak. This happens when my immune system is lower; like after sex or if i am very tired for a few days.Anything that exist to sublimate virus so i dont experience these ? An antiviral or other method.I have heard that hyperbaric chambers helps to hyperoxygenate body to prevent this. Are there research on this?Thank you

Dr. Thomas, MD NeurologistThanks for previous answer Wife improving from Hypoxic Brain Injury, secondary to overdose . I thought about then looked up Hyperbaric Oxygen Use, and saw scant yet amazing results....seems to be rather incredible but no one using?I want her to get this....is plain logical (Have access in TJ Mexico if need be) One local Sharp Hospital has one...for use with "Ischemia" they are careful not to say too much Have you looked at or had any experience and comment for me please, on adding this modality into her hopeful continued recovery. She is alert and facial movement only (and typical reflex movements) 5 weeks in now. Eyes tracking and BIG smiles (and some tears) for me and others. Many Thanks Dr. Bob (DDS)

My family was hospitalized (Tuesday evening) and underwent

my family was hospitalized (Tuesday evening) and underwent hyperbaric OT (Wednesday)at NUMC in East Meadow. Because my initial levels were higher than my wife's (30 in the ambulance I'm told), I had asked, at the encouragement of my brother (a physician who was trying to follow the events of the events but who is in a different state) , to undergo a second round of the oxygen therapy.Wednesday afternoon , an attending told me my troponin level was .39 . I was later discharged by the doctor overseeing the hybaric treatment.Two days out I'm still having episodes of 'neck tightness' - sometimes more pronounced upon exertion - as well as some mild fatigue. I have an ICD and a diagnosis of HOCM and use verapamil 360 as well as a statin/thinner because of a stent in July 2011.I'm also experiencing also some mild headaches and minor confusion (I had a tendency to forget things before the treatment I suppose).The physician in the hyberbaric section said the confusion symptoms are 'in my head' and told me not to worry but if I wanted to check out the heart issues I could come back to his ER!My cardiologist doesn't think this is any big deal either. Yet, when the event occurred I believe I was having rapid breathing (I was uncontrollably sobbing for no apparent reason) and I remember my head sweating profusely.The symptoms that gave rise to (first) the stent in 2011 and later the ICD was basically shortness of breath - No heart attack event. The tightness in my neck, I'm thinking could be related to heart muscle strain. I'm not feeling any other symptom other than the neck tightness and some mild fatigue (common after HBOT?).Should I wait it out or check it out? Does check it out mean they will have to take an arterial blood gas? (I'm petrified of this?).A doctor I spoke to Friday at the Georgetown hyperbaric section said I should get an echo. But if my specialist cardiologist doesn't think I need any follow up , then what to do?

What would be your approach to to the following hormone scenario:

What would be your approach to to the following hormone scenario: 70 year old woman who had a complete hysterectomy at 37 develops a tumor in a breast in a place that received trauma from a return serve tennis ball nearly 40 years earlier; the tumor seems to be producing estrogen because the estradiol level from saliva tests keeps rising in spite of therapy with Anastrozole. The tumor has grown in spite of alternative treatment with vitamin C IV's, ozone added to IV, hyperbaric oxygen, and a ketogenic style diet with emphasis on avoiding sugar intake. The woman's doctor is treating with very low levels of progesterone cream daily, low testosterone cream three times a week, and low estriol cream three times a week. He believes that too much HRT will translate to more estradiol. This woman feels that there is an imbalance in the body the needs to be corrected or even mastectomy will not be effective and the problem will surface elsewhere. The scenario is mine and I believe that the body has the ability to heal itself if it is given the right assistance to balance itself. The estrogen level has probably been high all of my life since I began menstruation at age 10, had long heavy menses, and never missed a period until the hysterectomy stopped production. ***** *****, MD, sited a study in his newsletter many years ago that detailed how a small late-stage breast cancer pts were treated successfully with high doses of bio-identical progesterone. What is your opinion of that approach or of any other was to try to balance the hormones in the body. Thyroid and adrenals are being treated alternatively with supplements. BTW, I ballroom dance usually once a week and teach a yoga class to older women once a week, so I am moving my body to some extent.
