This is the second in a series of blogs about using flower essences as an effective energetic support against viruses. It’s best to read the previous blog on herpes simplex 1 before reading this. It’s short and will give you a helpful orientation.
Herpes Simplex 2 (HSV-2) - Genital Herpes
Herpes simplex 2 - or genital herpes - is generally transmitted through sexual intercourse and mouth-to-genital contact. There is a simple swab test for this, but a blood test is more reliable if a person has had symptoms for several years. The type of sore can vary from a rash to sore pimples to small lesions. In some cases, there is no rash, but a neurological tingle in the pelvis.
I’ve found pansy flower essences to be essential allies in working with cases of herpes simplex 2. Red Pansy, Burgundy Pansy and Orange Pansy are, in my experience, the best ones to use - 3 drops, 3 times daily. Rotating these colors on a weekly basis seems to work even better.
As with herpes 1, many of the clients I’ve worked with experienced an abatement of symptoms right away - some even stopped having outbreaks for months. Others, however, either did not respond or would improve and then cycle back into regular outbreaks. Again, there was something deeper to consider.
With stubborn cases of herpes 2, there is almost always some pelvic trauma present that has partnered with the virus and supports its persistence in the system. Trauma generally has a lowering effect on the body’s immune resistance and level of energy. Repressed or stuck emotions in the pelvic area contribute to the life of the virus.
Here are some of the issues (over many years) that my clients and I have needed to address before the virus would clear:
* Childhood physical or sexual abuse by a parent, family member or caretaker
* Inappropriate sexual comments in childhood
* Being regularly exposed to sexuality in childhood
* Abusive relationships
* Sexual awakening before puberty
* Physical, sexual, mental or emotional abuse by a partner
* Sexual fears
* Fear of pregnancy
When these conditions are present, the herpes virus does not respond as well to the pansy support.
There are flower essences that address all of these issues and processes to use for each. Some of these cases took weeks, and some took years depending on the depth and intensity of the issue. Working with viruses means working with the trauma, thought-forms, emotions and situations that support the virus energy. In all of these cases, I continued to use the pansy essences while I was working with trauma or trapped emotions.
Here's one case that illustrates the effect of trauma and trapped emotions on herpes simplex 2.
At 24, “Sara” had been having herpes outbreaks monthly for 3 years. She contracted the virus in college through a partner who did not know he had herpes. When we tried Red Pansy (stock level at 3 drops, 3 times per day), she stopped having outbreaks. She would occasionally get a tingle which usually preceded an outbreak, but she no longer got blisters.
A few months later, Sara started a new relationship which was becoming sexual, and the outbreaks started again. In exploring Sara's past, I found she’d had two abortions in recent years. Although she said that there were no emotional issues connected to the abortions, she felt her legs and hips warm up when we talked about the experiences.
I switched Sara to the Orange Pansy and made her a blend of Casa Blanca Lily, Hyssop and Fraxinella, mixed at a dosage level, which she took for one week. She contacted me and reported that some grief was starting to come to the surface. I added Onion to the blend to help her with the emotion. During the month, Sara had vivid, disturbing dreams and processed guilt, shame and sadness that she did not know were there. The outbreaks subsided and after a few months, we stopped using the pansy essences.
In the 1920s, Dr. Bach warned the medical community about its obsession with what was then called the “germ theory.” He was certain from his research that disease had other causative factors in the personality, itself, and that over-focus on the physical aspects of disease would lead us in the wrong direction.
In our culture, “looking for cures” often means ignoring dimensions of the personality that are vital to work with when illness is present. In my experience, there can be no real, long-lasting cure unless all aspects and dimensions of a personality are considered.
Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to contribute a comment – congratulations to Jana Carrey! She will be getting bottles of Red Pansy, Orange Pansy and Burgundy Pansy for posting. If anyone has questions about our Pansy essences, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. David will be writing another entry soon about flower essences and HPV.
I will start using pansy with herbs that are antiviral like elder, lemon balm, etc. I bet that will boost results. Thank you for your insightful and careful research.
Thank you for this series David and will continue to read the ones you post in the future. As a flower essence practitioner and as someone working to heal from the EBV virus, your posts of great interest to me personally AND professionally. I am looking forward to your upcoming workshop in Marin in March @ Gathering Thyme about using flower essences for viruses! I’ve already signed up and look forward to meeting you in person.
Thank you for the commitment to your healing work.
So true David! When I worked in Gynecology, it was uncanny that there was almost no diagnosis as devastating as Herpes. This always interested me. Also because it can so physically painful, it’s almost like a penance, attached to deep shame or guilt. I love this case study. Fascinating!
Hi David, clients are reporting wonderful success with Pansy Plus 20 this year. Both for prevention as well as shortening the time of illness if sick.
These essences are both subtle and powerful … a true gift… nature conspires to help!! 😁
Very insightful! I’m always looking for simpler (less-harsh) ways to help clients with such conditions that in and of themselves carry so much trauma. Thank you for posting! 🙏🏻
I’ve been having great results with the viral set too! So grateful – thank you!
Your work with viruses is intriguing. Hoping to see you next month in San Rafael.
