The Secret Society Wellness products started out with just one product and it was the Lifesaver SPF Lip Balm. The concept started when you guys wer…

If I Were Diagnosed with Herpes Today: 3 Things I Would Do Differently

If I Were Diagnosed with Herpes Today(Blog Banner)

I was diagnosed with herpes in 2011. That doesn’t sound like it was too long ago and that we haven't had to many changes but really, when you think about it we’ve had a ton of technological changes. Let me take you back to 2011. There was google, but it wasn’t what it is today. There was Facebook and Instagram, but neither had the impact that they have today. So what I’m trying to say is that there wasn’t the information out there that there is now. When I googled herpes, or who had herpes bac…

Do Exercise and Herpes Go Together?

Do Exercise and Herpes Go Together (Blog Banner)


This has been a big topic on social media as well as in our Secret Society community. I’ve been getting lots of questions like; will sweat cause an outbreak, will friction cause an outbreak, will HITT cause me to get an outbreak, professional bodybuilders have asked questions about pre-workout and so on.

Food is way more important than we think. It has to ability to heal your body or make you sick. This was something that I didn’t really realize until I was diagnosed with herpes.

Before we go into foods that nourish your body with a herpes diagnosis I want to preface that I’m not a doctor, nor a nutri…

Is There a Herpes Cure

is there a herpes cure (Blog Banner)

This is something that we all ask as soon as we are diagnosed. When we find out that the answer is no. We then ask, why not?
