Is Herpes Blitz Protocol a Scam? – In My Opinion Yes It Is

Herpes Blitz Protocol scam

The Herpes Blitz Protocol it is said to be some amazing protocol that can eliminate the herpesvirus from your body in as little as 19 days. But is it really as good as it is said to be? Or is Herpes Blitz Protocol a scam that you should avoid?

The truth is that this pretty much as a scam. I’m not going to call it a “full-blown” scam but at the very least it is somewhat of a scam due to the extremely misleading and deceptive marketing tactics used.

Most of the reviews out there online are talking about how amazing this product is, but they are making money off of promoting it at the same time… Which is why they’re claiming it is amazing.

In my honest review I will be going over some of the lies and misleading information given to expose this for what it really is.

Herpes Blitz Protocol Review

You are probably reading my review now because you saw the video presentation for Herpes Blitz Protocol and thought it seemed a little bit too good to be true. So of course you did some research and came across my review here. And it’s a good thing you did… If you would’ve bought this product based on the information provided you would likely be extremely disappointed.

Some of the main claims that are stated about this product include…

  • Can eliminate the herpes viruses types 1 and 2
  • Only takes as little as 19 days to work
  • Big pharma companies are trying to shut it down
  • 3 simple natural ingredients

The creators a guy named “Josh Parker”, he was supposedly an Army officer. The reason I am putting quotation marks around his name is because this likely isn’t his real name. Based on all the other lies that I’m going to show you, I am hesitant to believe anything that they say.

But anyways… Supposedly his girlfriend “Emma” was suffering from an infection and this is what led him to dive deep into research and finally come across this incredible protocol.

He claims that this 3-food protocol is so effective that it can get rid of embarrassing symptoms caused by the herpesvirus in as little as 48 hours…

And it can supposedly completely eliminate the virus from your body in as little as 19 days…

Basically this protocol consists of eating three ingredients that you can pick up at your local grocery store. It is very simple and the reason that Josh says it is still unknown is because the big pharmaceutical industries are doing everything they can to keep it that way.

According to him, they are trying to stop this information from getting out there so that they can keep the sick people sick and continually drain their bank accounts.

How It Works (Allegedly)

So as I said, this protocol consists of eating three ingredients.

The 3 ingredients include:

  • Quercetin: Found in red onions, apples, and tomatoes.
  • Curcumin: Common spice in Morocco and used by many other parts of the world. Comes from the Turmeric root.
  • Resveratrol: Found in red grapes.

Now what you may notice is that all of these three ingredients are rather common. You likely haven’t heard the scientific names for them, but as you can see both Quercetin and Resveratrol are found in common foods that many people we every single day. The only one that is more uncommon is Curcumin, which is found in  turmeric. This isn’t consumed quite as commonly, but you can find it in pretty much any major grocery store.

My point here is that these ingredients aren’t very uncommon. So how is this amazing protocol going to eliminate herpes from your body? If this were the case then there should be a lot of people with herpes getting cured on their own from eating these foods without even knowing it.

While these ingredients are all good, and they do have a lot of scientific research backing their health benefits, one of which being the ability to help strengthen the immune system which could in turn help fight off the herpesvirus, there is definitely no scientific research showing that these three ingredients will eliminate herpes from your body.

The bottom line here is that there are a lot of unverified claims made in the sales pitch.

Unverified Claims

Has been used by over 67,000 people

Josh claims that this protocol has been successfully used on over 67,000 people yet there is no information about this being true in any way. It seems that Joshua just made up a large random number to try to sell more of this product.

If this really had cured over 67,000 people and don’t you think they would be more people talking about it? I mean I know that he claims the big pharmaceutical companies are doing everything they can to stop it from becoming mainstream, but I am sure there be people posting all about it all over social media and things like this.

Scientifically proven to work 

As I mentioned above, there is no scientific evidence that shows these ingredients to eliminate the herpes virus. There is a lot of research showing that it can improve health and boost your body’s ability to fight off unwanted invaders, such as viruses, but no direct research on the subject proving what he says.

Herpes is no longer un-curable

He tells you that herpes is no longer un-curable and that the big pharmaceutical industries just want you to believe that it is so that they can keep taking your money. This of course is completely unverified and as far as I’m concerned, untrue.

There are still no cures that exist or herpes… Only treatments to help prevent and shorten outbreaks.

Deceptive Marketing At Its Finest

This is a great example of deceptive marketing. They lead viewers to believe that the entire medical industry is evil and out to get you. They just want to keep you sick so that they can keep taking your money. This is a statement I have come across when reviewing other scammy health products as well, such as Fungus Hack and Patriot Power Greens.

And of course these big pharmaceutical companies are trying to shut down the Herpes Blitz Protocol website right now… So you have to buy in as soon as possible before it is gone forever.

All of this is done to scare you into buying this product.

Just about everything you are told is either misleading or a lie. In fact, the testimonials that Josh presents from people that have supposedly been cured by this protocol, such as the one below with “Toni Rose”… Are completely fake.

Toni Rose was supposedly some college student that had herpes and got made fun of a lot for it. Of course she started using this protocol and eliminated it, which would be amazing if it were true… But it is not. I did a reverse Google image search for the image presented here and found that it is a stock photo that anyone can purchase and use online…

What The Heck is Herpes Blitz Protocol Really?

So throughout the whole video presentation you are misled and might not even know what Herpes Blitz Protocol really is. You might be thinking is a supplement that you are buying into or something like that, when it is not.

Herpes Blitz Protocol is just an e-book that talks about these 3 “odd” foods and what they can do for you. The book is 108 pages long

Final Thoughts – Worth Buying?

The ingredients that are recommended within this e-book are definitely good, and will lead to a stronger immune system if you aren’t already taking them, but they are definitely not any miracle workers.

I find it extremely unlikely that these three ingredients are going to eliminate a serious case of herpes. Now maybe they would be effective at keeping herpes from getting started and spreading in the first place, but to eliminate an established case that already exists seems very unlikely.

You don’t have to take my word for it. You could always go to your doctor and ask them about these three ingredients to see what they think about them. I am willing to bet they are going to tell you it is a scam… But then of course the entire medical industry is out to get you… As Josh leads you to believe.

Scam or Not?

I think we can pretty much all agree that this is a scam. Yes, there is value in this e-book and they aren’t completely scamming you out of your money, but it is definitely a scam in the fact that this product is nowhere near as amazing as it is said to be. That said, if you do wish to purchase this ebook you can do so from the official website Here.

Please share this post if you found it helpful and want to help spread the truth. There are a lot of scam health products being promoted out there and I am trying to spread the word on the sorts of things. Also, leave any comments, questions, or concerns below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

Wayne says July 28, 2018

This article sounds much like a “pharm rant”. Over $37 it’s worth a shot. I have genital herpes and get maybe 3 outbreaks a year and cover a small area so as my herpes is a weak strain I’m surely in the “got more chance of success” bracket than others. I got mine from “escorts” when I was young I was earning 2-4 k a week so regularly purchased 2 or 3 girls at a time. Lucky I didn’t get Hiv

    raka says October 23, 2018

    Hi I recently diagnosed with hsv2 got it from an escort. I am depressed and feeling terrible I don’t know how to overcome this stigma can anyone help me please

      joe know says November 9, 2018

      Even the sites claiming to expose this scam are scam sites promoting the scam.
      If you’ve got herpes frequently, it will be much much less frequent if you have your mercury fillings removed, especially crowns since they usually hide mercury fillings underneath crown. These are the major mercury sources, crowns with fillings under them create a battery effect allowing higher mercury accumulation in body and brain. Only use Andrew Cutler protocol for mercury. Next to that, best improvement comes from high dose Vit. C three times per day. Of course Lysine helps greatly, and so does Lemon Balm teas and extracts. Everything else, including acyclovir type drugs are worthless.
      I had it chronically twice per month for over 35 years, until I had mercury fillings removed. Now I only get breakouts if I eat tons of chocolate and nuts, and alcohol.

Silke Steg says August 12, 2018

Hi. Thanks for the article. We are using mostly peppermint oil and rhus toxicodendron to treat the herpes. Me and my kids got it mainly at lips and face. What do you recommend as a treatment? Thank you.

colin smith says August 15, 2018

Thank You for this article as one of the great American suckers for some of these things. Just listening to the rant was damage enough. please let me know on any other reviews you have done and whats next. you can save me a lot of time. Your approach is refreshing

    Kyle says August 19, 2018

    Glad you liked it Colin. You can keep coming back to my site to find new reviews that I do on these sorts of products.

test subject says August 17, 2018

This is a scam and i am sure priced based on a marketing group that discovered people with herpes would easily pay $37 dollars for a cure.
I followed the protocol exactly and guess what, it did nothing. Really just activated my herpes to leave me in a breakout which i havent had for years.
DO NOT BUY this product, do not fall for this scam,
It is bull shit and does not work.

Shame on you Kyle!

    Kyle says August 19, 2018

    Did you even read my review? I am not promoting this product. I pretty much tell people it is a scam and NOT to buy it.

    Dave says August 25, 2018

    You mean shame on this so-called Josh Parker in the
    promotional video.

      Kyle says August 27, 2018

      Ya I think that is what he meant. Hopefully.

Susan says August 28, 2018

Thanks for the info! I tried taking curcumin supplements and after a couple of weeks started having massive nosebleeds, one of which landed me in the ER. Never again and certainly not with this “program” either.

    Kyle says August 28, 2018

    That is quite a reaction. Were there any other ingredients in the supplements that could have caused this?

Dissapointed says August 29, 2018

DO NOT BUY into this bullshit! Honestly do not, Kyle you are spot on. I followed the “protocol” to a tee, even went off the antivirals for the duration of the treatment while drinking the daily smoothies.
In the end I spent money on the smoothie ingredients and had an outbreak after being symptom free for over a decade! Josh or whomever you are, shame on you for inventing this bullshit scam and shame on you for giving people false hope.
I did use the money back guarantee within the 60 days and got my money back which I would highly encourage any of you who bought into this make believe crap!!

Ashley Dennis says September 3, 2018

Pls help,e-mail me when ever you have information about herpes cure,or good treatment.thanks all

Test says September 4, 2018

Hi Kyle, I can agree with the 2 previous comments that this did NOT work & within weeks, discovered a breakout that I haven’t had since my first one. Hopefully I am still within the 60 day money back trial period.

    Kyle says September 4, 2018

    Hopefully. And hopefully they will honor the refund policy, which it seems that they don’t do all the time.

Bob Rhodes says September 9, 2018

Thanks for saving me time,energy & money from being wasted on that scam artist,Kyle!

Wendy says September 14, 2018

Thank you for this review. What tipped me off was the number 67,000. I believe that was what “Dr. Christine Buehler” said was cured with Erase Herpes (, which I bought in 2016, but never got around to doing the protocol. I can’t access the info b/c the site no longer exists.

Another tip off was mentioning that it’s onlu for a short time b/c big pharma is on its heels to shut it down. Realistically, if this protocol worked, word would be out in medical support groups and others who don’t profit from our staying infected.

    Kyle says September 18, 2018

    Hi Wendy.

    Ya a lot of info in these scams is recycles. And one of the problems, as you mentioned, is that they don’t last long. So you may buy it and then never get access to it after it disappears from the face of the earth.

Oliver says September 22, 2018

Thanks Kyle I almost paid for this piece of shit..please I’d love you to email me when there’s a cure or any natural hero that may suppress this embarrassment. Thanks

Pam says September 30, 2018

Thanks man, you confirmed my suspicions

Bruce Gill says October 3, 2018

I would to know if you and I could email in a TOTALLY & CONFIDENTIAL manner about another topic? Thank you!

    Kyle says October 4, 2018

    What other topic?

Helpful Tip says October 7, 2018

Thanks for keeping us from wasting time and money. I have a great tip, it just doesn’t eliminate the virus for good. I take 1,000 mg of L-Lysine every day and my husband takes 500mg. Years ago, I read that a low lysine to arginine amino acid ratio would activate a breakout. Many foods especially nuts, grains and legumes fall in this category. So instead of eliminating these healthy foods, we started supplementing with lysine. It’s worked for many many years to “almost” eliminate outbreaks. If I feel a telling tingle that an outbreak may be starting due to added life stressors, I immediately take 1,000 mg 3 x a day and it goes away or is a very slight, short-lived outbreak. The pharmaceuticals never worked for me! Good Luck!

Liberty says October 17, 2018

Kyle, the information you provided was great. Finding reviews like this is not easy. I will be following you for future reviews. Thank you!

Carol says October 19, 2018

I, too, have tried the protocol to cure my cold sores. Failed. I came across your website because I was originally searching for the email in which I’d write to receive my refund for this scam! A cold sore returned after less than 2 months of supplements and smoothies that I hoped would work. Left me disappointed and now apprehensive as I’m learning that the virus can lead to dementia, Alzheimer’s and other neurological conditions. I came across pure oregano oil as a detox for this virus to be rid of the body. I, as I’m sure, everyone living with the virus, is willing to try anything to get rid of it entirely!

Tru says October 19, 2018

Thanks for the informative article. The one thing that screams scam to me is the 60 Day “Money Back Guarantee”

If if works in 30 days, then why offer a 60 day guarantee? Maybe 60 days is that magic number to turn a profit on your $37 investment…Maybe?

Elaine says October 27, 2018

Apparently, I’m nearly close to 28 days protocol plan. Two more days and I’m done. Funny thing is during this period I had an outbreak and it even lasted for weeks. It just makes me feel so hopeless. I thought this is legit. It thought it the answer to cure this monster that landed on me. I’m still finishing the antivirals that doctor gave me. I feel like losing hope now.

Daniel says October 27, 2018

I’ve been using this protocol for 11 days now. I started using it during an outbreak and when the smoothies would touch my lips the cold sore would immediately reduce in size. I’ve been doubling every recipe size and taking lysine, flaxseed oil amd drinking green tea. Being that I’ve only been using the deit for 11 days I cant say whether or not it will completely eliminate the virus, but I do feel much better and my outbreak was gone in 4 days and I haven’t experienced another one. I am optimistic. Its important to read the whole book so you know what foods not to eat during this protocol. Also no smoking or alcohol. So far its helping me. But again, I’ve doubled every dose and I plan on getting my blood tested for 8 consecutive weeks after the 30 days like he asks

Andy Mangan says November 2, 2018

Thankyou for your review of this,,,I thought it was too good to be true although there probably are some health benefits in some of the information…social media really is a gift for would be scammers,,

Mike says November 3, 2018

I just got through watching most of their promotional video, and naturally wondered what others were saying, which is why I am here. I was immediately turned off by their “overkill” tactics making it seem as though life is over for those who have contracted the disease. For those under the age of 50, 55 million Americans (one-sixth) have Type 2, and over two-thirds of the population have Type 1, and according to the National Institutes of Health, about 90 percent of adults have been exposed to the Type 1 virus by age 50. Life continues.

No one wants to have herpes, but it’s not the kind of thing that always leads to deep depression or jumping off subway platforms. Yet, maybe “Josh” could be excused, because they are trying to sell a product, and product-peddlers are granted some license to go overboard. (Yet. it’s not a good sign. If the product is as good as promised, there would be less need for sensationalism.)

Lots of other fishy things about the video. I appreciated Kyle for having gone through the trouble of exposing the falsity behind the photo of “Toni Rose.” As commenter Wendy put it, if 64,783 (not quite “67,000”) were put to the test and all had come clean, why not release the official study? (And another claim I did not appreciate was the pitch about how the usage of brand name herpes drugs would cost thousands per year, without mentioning the relatively cheap generic alternative, Acyclovir, which in my experience has proven to be an excellent product, and which has “saved my life” numerous times.)

You can’t pause their promotional video and go back, but the name of the scientific friend was revealed (the one who conducted the research), and supposedly works at Harvard; that would be something to check. Perhaps a big clue as to the scammery is that “Josh” appears to have been performed by a man with appealing good looks and with polished delivery, increasing the possibility that Josh is a hired actor.

(Narrowing down the genuineness of “Josh Parker” is further made difficult by how generic the name is. A testimonial in the video was from a young blonde with the name of “Lena Franks” from Lincoln, Nevada — a search yielded no results — with another conveniently generic name.)

(I subsequently succeeded in downloading the video to make note of the researcher, “Charles Ellis, a lifelong friend, scientist and specialist in germ warfare with more than 20 years’ experience… now working as an independent medical researcher at Harvard University.” A search for the name and “Harvard” netted nothing. A search for the name and “scientist” netted a couple hits bearing no relation to the one in the video.)

We also must pay attention to the commenters on this page who claim they have tried the product and found the results to be contrary. (Yet we must also bear in mind those who seek out pages as this to offer comments are most likely dissatisfied customers. So if 100 people buy a product, and let’s say 80 are happy, they are most likely not going to spend the time to write a positive review. The 5-10 who are unhappy, will.)

(Plus, we all must be wary of false commenters. What if the negative commenters originate from “Big Pharma,” and they have, say, hired Russian trolls? What if the positive commenters have been put up by the people hawking this product?)

(Bearing in mind the preponderance of those who comment negatively, if you Google “sandiegocan.org buygoods” you will run into a page that does not give high marks to “Buy Goods,” those who are marketing this product.)

On the positive side, the ingredients are all healthy, so at least the odds of health repercussions would be slim. Commenter Susan on this page reported ER-visit producing nosebleeds after taking curcumin supplements, but that kind of severe reaction would appear to be an anomaly, and only Susan knows the amount she took.

In other words, if the “Herpes Blitz” concoction fails, almost none would be the worse for wear, and probably healthier, even if the herpes is not eliminated. Yet would that justify the $37.00 cost and the further money it takes (a comment from a site I’m about to report mentioned it cost $125 to buy the supplements, to save the trouble of preparing the smoothies), as well as the trouble of preparation for those who prepare the smoothies?

I don’t know. Yet before closing the book on the subject, another site I encountered during my cursory search (aside from several with innocuous sounding domain names such as “tophealthjournal.com,” “showergate.net” and “supplementdigestdog613635218.wordpress.com,” which have reproduced many of the same words; that is, what appear to be tricky supplemental sites purporting to be objective, and probably put up by the manufacturer) was the Amazon page offering this product.

Those willing to give this product a shot may be happy to learn Amazon’s price is currently some twelve dollars less (plus shipping and taxes), but what I found more interesting were the reviews. (Some coming from “verified” Amazon purchasers, which may or may not help with the authenticity.) As of this writing, there were six reviews, and five were positive, one (the one who opted for the $125 supplement choice) “cautiously” so.

As for me, I am undecided. I just wanted to remind all there are always two sides, and the truth often lies beneath the easy surface.

Marc says November 6, 2018

do you have herpes have you tried this herpes Blitz protocol or are you just throwing words out there because you don’t like the guy or perhaps you work for the Pharmaceuticals the big question is have you had herpes and have you bought the product

    Kyle says November 10, 2018

    Hi Marc,

    No I have not had herpes, nor do I work for the pharmaceutical companies. I’m just someone who runs a website independently and takes great pleasure in exposing scams like this as well as sharing helpful health information.

      Becky says November 12, 2018

      If you do not have the virus than it’s not fair to judge the product – just saying!

        Kyle says November 12, 2018


Jenna cooler says November 9, 2018

How did the test results turn out?

Dissapointed says November 19, 2018

Please read my comment from Aug 29, 2018. This is pure BULLSHIT period!
