Acyclovir Can Cause Hair Loss

Gene-EdenAcyclovir is an antiviral drug used to slow the growth and spread of the herpes virus.

Treatment with oral acyclovir can lead to hair loss (1). “Drug-induced alopecia (hair loss) usually occurs as a diffuse noncicatricial alopecia (a non-scarring hair loss) that recovers after discontinuation of the drug.

Drug-induced alopecia occurs as a consequence of a toxic effect of the drug on the hair follicle matrix… in rare cases, alopecia may be permanent (1).

”Those who use acyclovir due to its “ease of administration” (See the American Journal of Therapeutics, from March 22, 2013) (2), should consider this side effect.

A natural antiviral proven to have no side effects in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines is Gene-Eden-VIR.

Acyclovir has other side effects. These include neuropsychiatric effects, tremors, visual and auditory hallucinations, confusion and coma. (See the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, from March 15, 2006) (3). reports even more side effects, such as “abdominal or stomach pain, decreased frequency of urination or amount of urine, increased thirst, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, unusual tiredness or weakness.” (See, updated March 13, 2014) (4)

In addition, a meta-analysis of scientific studies found that “five placebo-controlled and two dose comparison studies evaluated the effect of aciclovir… on symptoms.

The meta-analysis showed that oral antiviral therapy decreases the duration and the associated pain of an (genital herpes) outbreak by merely one day.” (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy, from September 2013) (5).

Due to the many potential side effects associated with oral acyclovir and its limited efficacy, polyDNA recommends that infected individuals ask their doctor about Gene-Eden-VIR. This natural antiviral helps the immune system target the latent herpes virus. Acyclovir is a chemical drug; while Gene-Eden-VIR is natural.
“We recommend that individuals, who want to keep their hair, choose Gene-Eden-VIR, a natural antiviral with no reported side effects.” – Mike Evans, polyDNA

A study published on August 12, 2013 in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs, showed that Gene-Eden-VIR reduced herpes symptoms. Study authors wrote that, “Individuals infected with the herpes virus… reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR (5).”

The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms (5).”

Research shows that an infection with genital herpes also causes a feeling of physical and mental fatigue. Since Gene-Eden-VIR is antiviral, a second post-marketing clinical study showed that Gene-Eden-VIR decreases the feeling of physical and mental fatigue.

That study was published in March, 2014 in the journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy (6).

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.

In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery, called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA. The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments, and specifically, DNA of latent viruses, cause most major diseases.

polyDNA developed Gene-Eden-VIR, an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses.
