Most people know what shingles is, but did you know that you may be missing out on how to prevent it in the first place? Skip on down the page if you already understand all the characteristics of shingles. You do not need to suffer unnecessarily.
What Is Shingles?
Shingles (Herpes zoster in Latin), is a viral infection marked by intense pain and often a blistering rash, which appears only on one side of the body.
Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After one recovers from chickenpox (usually as a child), the virus can remain dormant in the nerve roots for years. It can then be awakened by some trigger. When awakened, it presents itself as shingles rather than chickenpox.
Unfortunately, it is possible to get shingles twice (or more). Or even have shingles last like it will never go away! The longer you experience severe pain after shingles (called post-herpetic neuralgia), the higher your chances of a shingles recurrence. (source)
But anecdotally, it is possible to put a stop to it, and I’m also one that is benefitting.
“My friend who was having a lot of pain and problems with rather frequently recurring shingles decided to try this bottle of Shingles Nosode. It did not help much with the bout of shingles that she had at the time, but she faithfully finished the whole bottle according to directions on the bottle, and has not had any more shingles ever since, in 3 years. Before, she was having them once or twice a year. In my experience, these bottles take faithful usage for 3-4 weeks (or until bottle is gone) to work as a future preventative. I also took this after my one bout of shingles, and have not had any shingles since. For price, quality, effectiveness and ease of use, it cannot be beat.” ~Deborah, Bordentown, NY
“I have had continual shingles outbreaks for 2.5 years. This product is great the only thing that keeps my shingles outbreaks managed without steroids. I have now been shingles-free for 3.5 weeks. This product also greatly reduces my severe neuropathy to barely noticeable.” ~Linda, Indianapolis
I Call This My ‘Shingles Killer’:
Shingles nosode by Professional Formulas is an OTC remedy (used to be by prescription only) that could be described as an “oral vaccine” in the sense that its purpose is to “immunize” the body against a specific disease —in this case shingles.
“A nosode is similar to an allopathic vaccination, but without the thiomersal, aluminum hydroxide, MSG, gelatins, and other harmful ingredients found in immunizations. Nosodes have been used throughout homeopathy’s history and are recognized in all homeopathic pharmacopoeias throughout the world.” (source)
Shingles nosode contains equal parts of homeopathic Rhus Toxicodendron 4X (specific for itching and pain); Echinacea Augustifolia 6X; L-Lysine 6X (blocks replication, speeds healing) ; Mezereum 6X (specific for severe itching); Natrum muriaticum 6X (speeds healing for blisters), 30X; Croton tiglium 8X (for itching); Herpes simplex 200X; Herpes zoster 200X; Varicella 200X (these last 3 to stimulate immunity).
“There is a considerable body of evidence (gathered over the last 200 years) that strongly suggests nosodes can and do provide immunity. (source) Historically, early homeopaths found that “Lathyrus” is able to prevent polio. “Mercurius Cyanatus” was effective in preventing diphtheria. “Baptisia” was useful for preventing typhoid fever. The list goes on.” (source)
This effective, inexpensive ($18.) shingles nosode is essentially what my naturopath dispenses to build resistance to shingles, (but she’s way more expensive!)
I love that it contains Lysine because Lysine decreases symptoms of viral infection in 80% of patients by 70% in the first 48 hours. So taken at least once/month, it’s a powerfully shingles preventative. Also works preventatively for cold sores. Shelf life is at least 5 years.
There are 2 ways to use Shingles Nosode:
- For Acute Care: Keep the remedy on hand and treat at the first symptom (read the reviews and the ingredients – impressive!) Dosage: Adults and children 12 and over, take 10 drops up to 3x/d. Place drops under tongue 30 minutes before/after meals.
- For Prevention: Dosage: To aid with future resistance and recovery, take 10-15 drops once weekly or monthly.
And #2 Preventative:
I’ve also heard (and believe) that Vitamin D w/K2 can do wonders taken daily. Could both the shingles nosode and Vit D together totally eradicate shingles?
In this 7 minute video, Dr. Berg explains why this specific amount of Vitamin D may prevent you from ever getting shingles again:
