Increasing protein intake helps? Just taking lysine alone will cause side effects I think.


Be careful with supplements. Your probably better getting lysine from foods.


Supplements aren’t dangerous as long as you know how to use them or get guidance how.

In fact in most countries in the world complementary and orthodox medicine are treated with equal relevance.

It’s mostly in western countries that orthodox medicine kind of has tried to “replace” complimentary medicine.
