I desperately want to be vegan and Im on my second week. But I got herpes about 6 years ago and it has flared up majorly this week. I know its what Im eating, ive been eating oats, oatmeal, nuts, cacao.
I truly believe that veganism is the cleanest diet we can give ourselves however if im eating all these arginine rich foods i cant avoid a herpes flare up. Its so debilitating. Im taking lysine now to help ease the symptoms.
Does anyone have any information on this? I dont want to have to always take lysine and I know that just wont work and I'll end up going back to my pre vegan diet.
Would appreciate any advice!!
Many thanks xx
