Clinical Basis

A virus ADN infection of the herpes virus group (chicken pox, zona, Epstein Barr, and cytomegalo virus) are of two antigenic herpes varieties :

Eruption : vesicular, or phlyctenular
Site : cutaneous mucinous junctions : lips, cornea, genitals
     large cutaneous mucous area : cheek, buttocks

Recurring affection caused by a short, temporary disturbance of the equilibrium due to an initially unstable terrain linked to repeated and periodical aggression of variable intensity. The reaction may be variable without direct relation to the effective cause, returning rapidly to the initial level of the terrain without modifications.

The resulting scar tissue may vary according to area and extensiveness.

The instability of the initial terrain in its acute phase is the cause of the brief failure of the suprarenal - beta sympathetic nervous system. The lack of stability during the pre-acute phase is the consequence of a hyperactivity of the alpha sympathetic response to a basic parasympathetic system aggravating the glycocorticoidal decline of the adrenal cortex.

The most frequently encountered disturbances of the terrain in pre-acute and acute cases are :

The most frequently encountered factors associated within these pre-acute and acute cases are :

The associated symptoms, cause of the prolonged crisis most frequently encountered are :

All interrelated phases

1. Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) (antiviral cutaneo-mucolytic, adrenal cortex tonic, releases betasympathicotropic substances, antivagotropic, immuno-stimulant participant, digestive anti-infectant, digestive anti-mycotic, choleretic, cutaneo-mucous contact cicatrizant, participates in inflammation inhibition, digestive musculotropic antispasmodic, cutaneo-mucous contact analgesic, neurologic)
2. Ribes nigrum (black currant) (adrenal cortex stimulant, aid in secretion of betasympathicotropic substances, supports betasympathicotropism, participates in immuno-stimulation, cicatrizant, anti-inflammatory, participates in limitation of allergy)
3. Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice) (cortisone like action, participates in activation of the betasympathicotropic substances, ovarian oestrogenic action stimulant, luteal stimulant activity - testicular stimulant activity - immuno-stimulant aid, anti-inflammatory, digestive antispasmodic, helps in limitation of allergy)
4. Inula helenium (Elecampane) (cutaneo-mucous, antiviral, genito-urinary, supports (favors) glycocorticoid secretions, betasympathicotonia, furthers oestrogenic secretions, progesteronic, adenohypophysic stimulant, ACTH-FSH-LH, immuno-modulation participant, digestive anti-infective, digestive anti-mycotic, genito-urinary, participates in containing inflammation, aid in limitation of allergy)
5. Viscum album (mistletoe) (thymo-stimulant)
6. Vaccinum myrtillus (Huckleberry) (intestinal disinfectant)
