Homeopathy Success Stories
Homeopathy is an ancient medicinal practice that is now experiencing a modern revival. Since its official inception in 1840, homeopathy has induced no known side effects, while maintaining an extremely high success rate . . .
"Hello! I want to share my experience with (homeopathics). At first I was skeptical but gradually the results proved that I was wrong. I was reluctant; it is hard to imagine that you can heal something like this and make yourself look better. However, you can. If you have the initiative to do something you are a step closer to a cold sore free life."
- Helen, California
"I have been using (homeopathics) for 5 years and I have had only 2 cold sores since that time. The cold sores lasted no more than 3 days and they never fully broke out - no scabs, just little bumps. There have been numerous times I absolutely knew a breakout was coming. I applied the (homeopathics) and it completely stopped the inevitable. I used to get cold sores 3 or 4 times every summer."
"I've been trying for years to get rid of the cold sores that appear every time and then on my upper lip. They are just too ugly and whenever I had them I just feel to stay at home until they go off. Surprisingly, after only a few days (using homeopathics) there's no sign of any cold sores anymore. They just healed off! ... It was not just about cold sores, but about all the pain that I used to feel when I had to go out with them. Fortunately, this is something of the past now..."
- Amanda, Canada
"Two years back I developed a red patch on my right ribs with intense burning and pain. The patch later became white greenish with eruptions. It gave me lots of trouble in the night. It was diagnosed as herpes simplex. I tried different therapies but the problem would reappear again after some time. After taking ... homeopathy medicines my condition is cured almost completely. The scar is also reduced considerably. I get slight pain still but it's not as intense as before."
- Aparna Hirlekar, Kansas
"I would recommend (homeopathic medicine) to anyone (who) has herpes, I even bought it for a friend of mine (who) gets it on his lips. A year ago, I tried (homeopathics for) different parts of my body where I would get the virus. First of all, it does shorten the duration of the outbreak, and since I have used it ... I really have not gotten herpes there since."

Q: What is Viratrol?
A: Viratrol is a liquid OTC formula that uses a multi-tiered approach to naturally relieve herpes symptoms and to promote healthy lifestyle recovery. We stabilize natural active homeopathic ingredients into our organic purified ionized mineral water complex.
Q: Is Viratrol approved by the FDA?
A: Viratrol is an FDA product listed natural medicine, and uses an OTC formulation. The active homeopathic ingredients are officially recognized, as listed in the HPUS and Homeopathic Materia Medica.
The FDA has regulated homeopathic medicine since 1938 by means of the guidelines in the HPUS, as per the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Said regulation is conducted in the same manner as that of nonprescription OTC drugs, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM). Viratrol is manufactured and packaged following the FDA's Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP).
Q: How do I take Viratrol?
A: Dosage and directions are included on the label. You can add liquid Viratrol to a glass of purified water, or dispense directly into your mouth. See detailed instructions in picture below. You can also use Viratrol externally, just apply to affected areas as needed.
Avoid contamination: Do not touch the dropper to anything other than the product. (fig. 1,2)
When dispensing, squirt the homeopathic into your mouth without touching the dropper to your mouth. (fig. 3)
If dispensing directly into mouth is not convenient, you can put the solution into a spoon or a glass of water. (fig. 4,5)
Make sure to use non-metallic objects, as the metal can change the product's effectiveness.
Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid direct sunlight, along with prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
Q: How often do I take Viratrol?
A: For optimal benefit, take Viratrol consistently every day, once in the morning, and again at night.
Q: How soon can I expect to see results from Viratrol?
A: Viratrol is designed to start working with your body to relieve your symptoms. For many individuals, results will be apparent within a few hours of the first dose. Because every person is different, however, the exact time taken for relief is indefinable. Viratrol functions best in a body free of underlying conditions, which can hinder the body's ability to achieve balance. A healthy lifestyle that observes proper nutrition and regular exercise is essential in order to experience the results of Viratrol.
We encourage you to take Viratrol twice daily for 30 days to begin experiencing the results desired. If you cannot see improvement in the first 30 days, you are welcome to take advantage of our 60-day satisfaction guarantee and return the product. If you do see some improvement, however, we recommend that you stay with the program for 3-6 months to receive the desired results. Please see our 60-day return policy.
Q: How long does one bottle of Viratrol last?
A: A single bottle of Viratrol is two fluid ounces. The product's dosage is given according to weight. So, if you weigh 50+ lbs, each two-ounce bottle will last approximately one month for one person, depending on your individual health needs and usage.
Q: How much Viratrol will I need?
A: Each bottle of Viratrol offers a one month supply for one adult. Children may need less, and multiple family members taking Viratrol may need more than one bottle per month.
Q: Can children take Viratrol?
A: Yes, Viratrol is formulated for safe and effective herpes symptom relief in adults and children over age 2.
Q: How safe is Viratrol?
A: Viratrol is made with natural ingredients and is, first and foremost, formulated to be safe. Viratrol has no reported side effects or drug interactions, and may be used with other prescription or OTC medications. Viratrol is safe for both adults and children 2 years of age and up.
Q: Has Viratrol been clinically tested?
A: The individual ingredients in Viratrol have claims based on the Homeopathic Materia Medica. As a composite formulation, however, Viratrol has not been clinically tested.
Q: Can I safely take Viratrol with medications?
A: The ingredients in Viratrol are natural and safe, but if you are currently taking prescription medications, we recommend you consult your health care professional before use.
Q: Is Viratrol an herbal remedy?
A: Viratrol is not an herbal remedy. Herbal remedies are based on the herb's use in traditional medicine, while homeopathy uses the "law of similars." Herbs use larger quantities of the product per dose. Homeopathic medicines use minute doses of the substance to address the symptoms. Herbal substances are regulated as food, where as the FDA accepts homeopathic products as drugs.
Q: What is the "law of similars?"
A: The "law of similars" is the idea that like relieves like. Homeopathy demonstrates that a substance that produces a certain set of symptoms in a healthy person can relieve the same symptoms in a sick person experiencing them. The homeopathic medicine is diluted to such minute doses that the ingredients are very safe.
Q: What is "Natural Medicine?
A: As a natural medicine, Viratrol safely activates the body's natural relief and balance mechanisms unlike many other OTC formulations that rely on chemical responses to activate or block these responses, and come with notable side effects, as per their product indications.
Natural medicine is safe, and the ingredients in Viratrol are regulated by the FDA according to the guidelines for OTC homeopathic formulation. While "natural" implies indications about the ingredients (Viratrol does contain natural active homeopathic ingredients), "natural medicine" more accurately refers to how the medicine works.
Q: What is Integrated Medicine?
A: Integrated medicine is a functional, balanced approach to wellness. Rather than relying solely on conventional methods, such as prescription drugs and surgery, or alternative methods like acupuncture and homeopathy, integrated medicine recognizes that the two can work together for optimal results. Health care providers who practice integrated medicine will use methods such as homeopathy in complement with more intense and/or invasive treatments.
Q: What is homeopathy?
A: Homeopathy is an officially recognized medicinal therapy that uses safe, naturally occuring substances to relieve symptoms of self-limiting conditions in the body. Observing the homeopathic dilution process per regulatory guidelines, we formulate the active ingredients in Viratrol for safe and effective relief from herpes symptoms.
Q: What is the homeopathic dilution process?
A:Homeopathic Medicines are believed to be more effective when its active ingredient is diluted. This is the minimum dose approach to homeopathy. The purpose of potency is to dilute the product until it can do no harm to a person. Homeopathic drug potency is indicated by such terms as "10X," 30X," and "LM1." These refer to the amount of times and by what ratio the base substance has been diluted.
Q: What is HPUS?
A: The Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) is a compilation of standards for the components and preparation of homeopathic drugs. It has been in continuous publication since 1897, and became the official U.S. homeopathic regulatory guideline in 1938, as stated in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
The HPUS is compiled by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Convention of the United States (HPCUS), which is a non-government, non-profit scientific organization of experts trained and experienced in the field of homeopathy. The HPCUS works closely with the FDA and U.S. homeopathic organizations.
Viratrol's active homeopathic ingredients are listed in the HPUS, and are therefore officially recognized.
Q: What is "Materia Medica"?
A: "Materia Medica" (Latin) refers to a body of information about medical knowledge. At HelloLife, we refer to specific Materia Medica that contains information on homeopathic ingredients. In general, we refer to William Boericke's Homeopathic Materia Medica.
The active homeopathic ingredients in Viratrol are recognized by such long-standing Materia Medica and thereby are not required to undergo the same safety and interaction testing as new OTC drugs.
Q: What is purified ionized mineral water?
A: Purified ionized mineral water uses organic trace minerals to supplement the minerals necessary for enzyme functions in the body. This can speed up cellular metabolism and support your body's natural repair processes. The purified ionized mineral water in Viratrol is an effective stabilizing agent for the homeopathic ingredients, as opposed to alcohol, which is common to most homeopathic preparations but irritating to your system.
Q: How is Viratrol different from conventional products?
A: Viratrol is intended to safely relieve herpes simplex virus symptoms AND promote optimal overall health, while conventional products typically address only the symptoms, and usually with negative side effects.
Q: Is Viratrol a cure?
A: Viratrol is a natural medicine that works quickly to relieve herpes symptoms, but it is not a cure. Instead, Viratrol is intended as a component of a healthy lifestyle, safely relieving your symptoms so you can focus on the big picture of your health and life. Choose whole, fresh foods; clean, pure water; and plenty of positive thought and movement, and you will naturally increase the effectiveness of Viratrol and the overall health of your lifestyle, and over time find yourself naturally relieved of symptoms.
Q: What are symptoms?
A: Symptoms are the aspects of illness that you can see and feel; they are the way your body responds to an underlying problem. Although they tend to be negative manifestations, they are actually good in the sense that they are your body's way of telling you what is wrong. Viratrol is intended to help relieve the negative symptoms you are experiencing. When you are no longer hindered by uncomfortable symptoms, you can concentrate on helping restore your body to its healthy balance.
Q: Is Viratrol a drug?
A: Because the ingredients in Viratrol meet the "Criteria for Eligibility of Drugs for Inclusion in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States(HPUS)," and that the HPUS is an officially recognized compendium of homeopathic drugs by the FDA, Viratrol is considered an OTC homeopathic drug. Therefore, it has to comply with the Labeling Guidelines of the FDA. Homeopathic products have been considered drug products since 1938, as stated in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
It is important to note that, although Viratrol is technically considered a homeopathic drug (remedy) by law, its ingredients are natural and safe for supporting your body's healthy balance. Viratrol is not intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease.
Q: Will this product cause me to experience detoxification symptoms?
A: The purified ionized mineral water base of this product is formulated to initiate a seamless detoxification process, but some sensitive bodies may experience initial detoxification effects. As minerals begin to activate enzymes and chelate toxins and metals, sensitive bodies may experience mild acute symptoms of sores in the mouth (similar to ones caused by eating excessive salty or acidic foods) or loose stools. Symptoms should last only 24 hours.
Q: Does Viratrol come with side effects?
A: According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a systematic review found homeopathic products such as Viratrol to be generally safe and unlikely to cause severe adverse reactions when taken as directed. Viratrol contains no alcohol, making it superior to many other OTC homeopathic formulations in that regard.
While some individuals express concern about homeopathic aggravation (temporary worsening of symptoms after taking a homeopathic medicine), there is little evidence for it in clinical studies. Regardless of Viratrol's safety, it is always important to inform your health care provider about any self-medication you may use.
Q: What do I need to consider if I'm thinking about using homeopathy?
A: There are five important points to consider and act on, as stated by the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM): First, homeopathy is not a replacement for proven conventional care or a visit to your health care professional. Second, research clinical studies conducted around the homeopathic remedies for the health condition you are trying to treat. Third, thoroughly acquaint yourself with any homeopathic practitioner you may visit. Fourth, women who are pregnant or nursing, or those thinking of using homeopathy for a child, should first consult with their health care professional. Fifth, inform all of your health care providers about any complementary and/or alternative practices you use.

What is Herpes Simplex Virus?
Herpes simplex virus is an extremely contagious and prevalent virus. In the US alone, the American Social Health Association estimates that between 50 and 80% of adults are carriers!
Among those carriers live two common strains of the virus - herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2). HSV-1 is the most common type, and is generally thought of as "oral herpes" in which blisters or cold sores are almost exclusively found around the lips and mouth. Most carriers pick up the virus as children, after kissing a friend or relative who has an outbreak.
The virus can also be spread by shared utensils or razors, sexual contact, coming into contact with a person's saliva, and of course, contact with a cold sore.
HSV-2 is less common, but still accounts for 20% of all US adults with herpes. Also known as "genital herpes", blisters occur on or near the genitals.
Once the body has contracted either type of herpes, the virus will remain in the body for the rest of life. Some carriers will experience symptoms so mild they may never realize they have the virus. In others, outbreaks occur almost constantly. The difference often comes down to lifestyle choices.
While the virus can not be cured, symptoms can be treated and minimized. With healthy lifestyle choices, it is possible to reduce the frequency and severity of outbreaks and decrease the time it takes for them to heal. In fact, with proper treatment, you may never again experience another outbreak!
Herpes Simplex Virus Symptoms
Both herpes simplex viruses can cause a wide variety of reactions. Herpes outbreaks typically occur or increase during times of high stress and poor nutrition. Symptoms of a herpes outbreak include:
- Drooling (in small children)
- Small blisters which form in clusters
- Most common on or around the mouth and lips in HSV-1
- Most common on or around the genitals in HSV-2
- Itching, tingling, swelling, stinging and minor eruptions of cold sores or fever blisters
- Flu-Like symptoms
- Sore Throat
- Swollen Lymph Nodes
At Home Herpes Simplex Virus Treatment
Though no cure exists for herpes simplex viruses and associated cold sore outbreaks, healthy lifestyle choices can help reduce frequency and severity of outbreaks:
- Relax! Stress is a common outbreak trigger.
- Avoid kissing or intimate contact with anyone currently experiencing an outbreak.
- Complete an elimination diet: take note of foods which seem to trigger outbreaks, and avoid them in the future.
- Wash hands and disinfect surfaces thoroughly.
- Use gloves to apply treatment to your own or your child's blisters.
When outbreaks do occur, remember these simple tips to help the recovery process:
- Avoid touching blisters, wash hands frequently, and scrub under fingernails daily.
- For genital blisters, avoid tight-fitting clothes and choose more breathable options such as cotton instead of garments from synthetic materials.
- Avoid acidic or sour foods and drinks.
- Add vitamin C to your daily diet for a boost in immune support.
To quickly and safely relieve cold sore symptoms, natural Viratrol is an effective remedy you can easily use in the privacy of your own home.
Viratrol Herpes Symptom Relief is homeopathically OTC formulated to relieve cold sore itching, tingling, stinging and swelling associated with herpes simplex virus 1 and herpes simplex virus 2. Viratrol is safe for adults and children over age 2.
Additionally, Viratrol goes further than other herpes symptom relievers, and actually promotes balance, recovery and repair. That's because Viratrol works with the body, not against it.
You should still continue to lead a healthy lifestyle while taking Viratrol. If herpes symptoms do not improve or become more severe, consult your health care professional, as this may be an indication of a more serious health condition.
