I remember sitting on the porch and speaking with Bill one on one, at the top of a mountain overlooking the ocean. Of the many conversations and brilliant things he said, I remember this one the most:
“You know Rich, at the end of the day, even if this vaccine never gets to market, I know that I helped a handful of people and I feel pretty damn good about that.” - Bill Halford
When a person is first diagnosed with herpes, the roller-coaster ride of emotions can be overwhelming. After hearing, "You have herpes," many feel like they are lost and alone, but the truth is they are not. You may not be aware, but there are close to 5 billion people who have herpes simplex and many of these people can suffer in the worst way. I wrote this book to not only share my 20+ years of experience and struggle, but to also share an amazing experience of getting healthier and feeling human again because of the life work of Dr.William Halford. It is because of his 20 years of research on the herpes simplex virus, and his discovery of a viable treatment, that my story exists—a new life of no longer taking heavy daily doses of antiviral medication.
This book reveals my personal journey to find relief from a debilitating form of herpes, one that I have suffered from for over 20 years. This journey will describe to you in great detail, what it was like to find complete relief through an experimental vaccine created by Dr.William Halford, and in full disclosure, all the intimate details during my treatment overseas on the island of St. Kitts.
In this tell-all memoir, complete with descriptions and photographs, I spend a great deal of time discussing the stigma of herpes and dispelling its many myths. It is my hope that I can provide you with a better understanding of how we can all make changes for a better chance of combating the disease and fighting the mistreatment of those who suffer from it. This book explores my struggles and experiences, while hope remains that people who may be unfamiliar with the effects of herpes, will fully understand the suffering of someone they know and/or love. #AskingForaFriend
I do not at any time claim the vaccine is a "cure" for herpes. The phrase, "functional cure" is used to describe the vaccine’s function as a therapeutic treatment—one that allows the body to function normally without showing symptoms of the disease. It is important to note that I do not work for Rational Vaccines, and I am not a doctor, a scientist or a medical professional. I am a human being who has benefited from an amazing treatment and this book describes the details of my personal journey. Opinions expressed within, are based on my personal experience. However, Dr. Bill was a professional and a scientist—a true pioneer—who formed Rational Vaccines with Agustín Fernández III, CEO.
