Life With Herpes – Breaking the Stigma and Shame with Alexandra Harbushka

Alexandra Harbushka

Linda Kreter and WiseHealth Radio speaks today with Alexandra Harbushka to discuss an often stigmatized condition that affects millions: Herpes. Nearly 80% of adults have herpes, and whether it’s a cold sore (HSV1) or genital herpes (HSV2), herpes may lie dormant for years, or trigger easily. It’s uncomfortable, can be unsightly, and worrying about it may raise the occurrences. The causes of outbreaks: exposure, high stress, sunlight, foods high in arginine (peanuts, chocolate), or a weakened immune system.

Alexandra is easy to listen to, matter-of-fact, and shares many stories of how to educate yourself and others whether or not you have herpes. It’s so prevalent, yet so rarely discussed that the ways to mitigate the risk, medications or holistic prevention, and especially how to recognize the need for excellent communication with partners (and potential partners) may be unknown. No more!

Even physicians can be squeamish about discussing herpes, yet being informed is the best way to reduce transmission and the discomfort of a herpes outbreak. Learn from this amazing woman who breaks down the facts and gives excellent “life advice”. Herpes is simply one aspect of your health, and managing herpes is doable with factual knowledge.
