This is my concept on exactly how BHT works. It is my hope that by understanding the fairly simple concepts and principles I discuss people who are interested in the BHT treatment can best use it.
I wish to start with the images provided by wikipedia of the ways in which lipids arrange themselves in water here:
The reasons why these arrangements occur are discussed at the above link. The lipids that encase the different lipid coated viruses also are embedded with certain protein structures that are involved in the infection processes. It is enough to know that for the purposes of this discussion.
So if you can strip away the different lipid coatings the different viruses can no longer infect uninfected cells. Also the natural processes involved in recognizing and destroying the RNA and DNA of said viruses take over and occur.
It is my proposal that the metabolites of BHT are the right size. Small enough to penetrate but large enough to readily disrupt said lipid coatings. Also and importantly said metabolites of BHT are compelled to move about very rapidly because the metabolites of BHT discussed in the different WHO BHT toxicology reports have [ O-H ] groups occur in those tert-butyl groups. When oxygen is bonded to hydrogen a PARTIAL ELECTRICAL CHARGE at both the hydrogen atom [ a partial positive charge ] and a [ partial negative charge ] on that oxygen atom. The very same forces that make water a dipolar liquid.
And, very importantly: Those BHT metabolites though somewhat water soluble because of those [ O-H ] groups are still VERY lipophyllic [ lipid seekers ].
To work, to destroy those lipid coated viruses, those BHT metabolites must both readily seek out those lipid coated viruses and then still be small enough to penetrate said viral coatings. If you screw up that process you degrade the BHT treatment.
IMPORTANT: BHT is power stuff. Careful dosing is required. For people who weigh 125 pounds or less use only 250mg of BHT per day or LESS. For people who weigh up to 200 pounds 500mg per day is the recommended dosage. For people who weigh more than 200 pounds some more BHT may be required. And those are ONLY rough guidelines. Age, fat content of a person`s weight are factors.
My rule is: If adverse reactions to BHT occur, LOWER the dosage used. MORE is NOT better. You have to find out what is the right amount for you. And even that can change especially for people over 50 and very lean people.
I try very hard to explain all this as best I can. But if you choose try this treatment always lower the amount of BHT used if adverse reactions occur….Oscar
I cannot tolerate ML or LC [monolaurin and lauricidin]. When I first went on ML, it improved my mental clarity in a major way, but later on it began to mess up my GI tract and cause me to have to avoid certain high carb foods. I talked to at least one other person that said “ML causes yeast” to form in the GI tract. They claim it doesn't, but it surely did with me. I would never take ML or LC again.
Thank you for posting such specific and scientific information! I was just recently diagnosed with herpes 2. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I figured I would check out as many treatment options as possible and make the best of the situation.
I haven't taken Valtrax yet, but I did get a prescription for it. Do you know of others with my condition that have taken BHT? If so, do they still have outbreaks if they were taking it daily? And finally would you consider BHT to be safer than Valtrax?
Oscar…. I want to try the BHT therapy, but need a brand that does not contain fillers such as cellulose, magnesium Sterate, or silicon dioxide. All of these upset my stomach. Any recommendations on brands that do NOT contain any filling/additive agents? TIA.
Hello Mimih, This is the first time I even heard of BHT being sold mixed with fillers. As far as I know the brands: VRP [ Vitamin Research Products ] and " LifeLinks " both sell BHT in or as a product with a very high degree of purity. So there are two brands that seem reliable from all I have heard….Oscar
Lifelinks BHT is not pure BHT. Some type of powder with very little crystals mixed in, powder must be silica and some other filler because I'm allergic to silica and get symptoms of silica allergy from taking this lifelink BHT.
I spoke with seller at Lifelinks before purchasing and they assured me that their product was pure and contained "ONLY BHT". After I took one capsule and got reaction. I spoke with the same person and he was defensive and told me that they have different sources and it comes in "different forms" other than pure crystals. I don't trust this company at all now, my capsules are a mixture of crystals and powder.
