Dreambirdie, I too have found the cure to be worse than the disease, pharmaceuticals giving me more problems than they solve. I'm using Cats Claw - I started recently, and I noticed a reduction in neural symptoms almost immediately - and I'm still on my garlic, mostly using Allicinmax. These two are both natural antivirals. Garlic is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial too. They both have a short action, so must be taken continually, in my experience.
I also use redbush tea, with a slice of ginger root sometimes, mint sometimes, liquorice sometimes, every day. All those things have a medicinal action - redbush (roibos) is anti-oxidant, liquorice has helped my sleeping patterns, ginger is anti-nausea, mint too, and all these things taste nice, unlike the bitter white pills that I found so hard to swallow.
