IV Hydrogen Therapy and the herpes virus

Is it possible through IV Hydrogen Therapy to flush the herpes virus out enough that it would not be detected in the body. I know the virus never goes away, but if I have this therapy would it help so there is no viral shedding at all, even if the symtoms are not there?

Herpes hides out in the dorsal ganglia of the nerve roots as they exit the spinal cord and the corresponding ganglia of the cranial nerves. They are there forever, as far as we know. A high percentage of the population is thus infected, and there are many other concommitant viruses present in most people. We are so much a part of nature that it will be impossible to separate from it. For example, most people have fungus in the blood and only in rare cases are there symptoms. I think of it in the "dog and leash" analogy. When the dog is on the leash (the virus is controlled by the immune syatem), no problem. Off the leash - problem. IV hydrogen peroxide is a good beginning to stop symptoms, but in most cases rehabilitating the immune system so that herpes is neven again a problem requires more extensive steps and I have to tell you - few doctors of any stripe have a clue how to achieve that.
