Pathophysiology of HSV Infections

What follows is an summary narrative of the pathophysiology of Herpes simplex infections.   While the paper does not contain any direct reference to herbal interventions, it does exemplify the necessity to cultivate a deep understanding of the varying physiologic processes involved in movements away from health.  It also highlights how an integrative perspective necessitates viewing not just the pathophysiology of a disease process but also how that disease process integrates to effect other organ systems.  Furthermore it reinforces the utility of looking at the “Big picture” of diseases and determining how often times they are the result of evolutionary adaptive responses.
