Herpes is a Viral Infection most commonly found on the lips or in the genital area.

Schüssler-Salts are a great alternative to conventional medicines, as they not only fight the symptoms but also the causes.

The following salts have proven beneficial for Herpes:

No. 4 Potassium chloride 6X

Potassium chloride assists in regulating the fluid balance of the body. It supports the protein-, and sugar metabolism, the heart rhythm, the muscles and nerves, and the function of stomach and bowel. It also has a positive effect on wound repair of skin and mucous membranes.

Potassium chloride is a glandular remedy, as it assists the glands in their detoxifying function with the release of specific substances. It can also be used for blood cleansing, as it cleans the blood of fibrous materials and thus makes it better flowable.

As a detoxifying remedy, Potassium chloride is well suited to reduce side-effects encountered from vaccines, anesthetics, and pharmaceutical substances.

No. 8 Sodium chloride 6X

Sodium chloride is required for the general functioning of nerves and muscles. It regulates the fluid balance of the body and assists afflictions such as oedema, dry skin and mucous membranes, and an increased fluid discharge through tears or perspiration.

Sodium chloride is extremely vital for cell regeneration as well as cell growth. Without Sodium chloride the cell is unable to absorb fluids.

Mucous membranes require Sodium chloride, as it builds up and protects them from dehydration. In the worst scenario, an insufficient buildup of mucous membranes can cause loss of taste and smell.

No. 21 Zincum chloratum 6X

Skin problems and psychological problems are supported by Zinc chloride during their recovery process. Additionally, it balances deficiency states. It helps to  strengthen the immune system.

No. 26 Selenium 6X

Selenium protects the body cells and assists the liver in its detoxifying function. It strengthens the immune system and is applicable in states of exhaustion. Furthermore, it has proven successful in alcohol withdrawal, and support of quitting smoking.


In addition to the salts, use creams No. 4 Potassium chloride and No.8 Sodium chloride, or prepare a paste from a few tablets of No. 4, No. 21 and No. 26 – crushed and mixed with a few drops of water – and apply to the affected areas.
