Lysine… The Cold Sore Preventer that Really Works!!


Do you get Cold Sores? I did all the time, especially when glutened. That is until 6 months ago when I started taking 2000mg of Lysine everyday.  Knock on wood I have been cold sore free since.  If I do feel like one is coming on, which is generally when I’ve been glutened or my monthly friend is about to come, I up my dose to 5000mg.  So far it’s  working.

Before I started taking Lysine I used mainly a concoction of alcohol and Abreva and with as much Abreva I used, I wish I had stock in the company.  At $20+ a pop, in such a small container, it really starts to add up for someone on a budget.  Lysine has pretty much ended the Abreva buying spree.

Cold sores are the bane of my existence and have ruined more than a few occasions for me.  So anything I can do I will try.  And trust me, this really works.  If you have stories or remedies you would like to share, please leave a comment or email me.

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training, pursuing certification towards becoming a Registered Dietitian, and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. She has a Bachelors of Science from Illinois State and and a Bachelors of Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Human Nutrition and Dietetics.

I was diagnosed w/ Celiac disease in 2010, my goal is to provide a path for healthy living to individuals who are seeking a tailored made lifestyle specific to them and their needs.

I believe that everyone is different, there’s not one diet that can work for everyone. The word Diet, is a short-term concept, let’s change diet into ‘lifestyle change’ instead and think long-term. Make healthier decisions not just today but for the years ahead of us as well. A lifestyle change is a journey not a sprint.

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from grocery shopping and social events, to deglutening your own household. I will help you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
