Natural Cures and Remedies for Shingles
What Causes Shingles?
here for our recommended natural Shingles solution.
Shingles is an infection that affects the nerve and most of the
skin around it. It is mainly caused by the virus that arises from
herpes varicella-zoster and is also known to cause other medical
problems like chickenpox, high fevers, and painful rashes that are
left untreated. Shingles most affects a certain area in the body or
either the left and right side in most situations. However, the virus
never crosses the body’s midline.
Even though it is a virus, it can’t be spread from one person to
another and those who are affected can easily go through their daily
activities, unless they’re suffering from high fever or any of the
other associated symptoms. However, fluid from blisters is somewhat
contagious and can lead to chickenpox, not shingles, in individuals
who have never got chicken pox and received the vaccine. This is why
it is recommended that individuals with shingle maintain adequate
hygiene habits and prevent sharing their items with someone else as
their always a high possibility that the fluid is on them.
Some of the symptoms associated with it are painful rashes that
eventually develop into painful and itchy blisters. These blisters can
also be extremely irritating and can impact movements, especially hand
movements. Additionally, a lot of people feel sick for a couple of
days until the rash finally appears and suffer from high fever.
Other common side effects include feeling dizzy, weak, along with
changes in vision where many individuals have reported finding
difficulties seeing, and not being able to function properly
throughout the day. However, it is essential to understand that these
symptoms usually differ from one person to another especially if the
person is suffering from other medical conditions.
Shingles is somewhat highly associated with chicken pox. Almost 98% of
people get chickenpox when they’re children or later on in early
stages of their life such as when they are teenagers. However, there
are many instances where the virus stays dormant in the central
nervous system but doesn’t cause any harm during this period and this
is why it is impossible to detect when chickpox or shingles.
The body’s immune system prevents it from spreading but it can be
later on reactivated and lead to shingles. It is unknown why the virus
ends up being reactivated again at later life stages but some of the
reasons are lower immunity, stress, or a medical condition that
negatively affects the immunity system like HIV or anaemia.
Additionally, individuals who are older are most likely going to be
prone to shingles than younger adults or infants and this is due to
the fact that younger adults and infants will have chickenpox and the
virus would be still dormant after it is gone and cured.
There isn’t any cure available for shingles unlike other medical
conditions and this is why the condition can be very unpleasant for
many people. In many situations, the rash can last for seven to ten
days and it takes about four weeks for the rash to heal completely and
for the blisters to be removed. However, there are numerous
medications available to decrease the pain and irritation that
individuals go through when they’re suffering from shingles. Most of
these medications and treatments can easily be purchased from the
pharmacy and don’t necessarily require a prescription or diagnosis
from the doctor.
Shingles can also lead to various complications like postherpetic
neuralgia. This is serious nerve pain that lasts for about three
months even if the rash is completely gone or if the rash is ignored
and not treated effectively throughout the first weeks.
This is perhaps the only medical complication to take place and it is
very rare for shingles and the associated rash to develop into another
serious medical condition. However, it is recommended to consult a
doctor if these treatments aren’t working effectively as the condition
is usually cured easily and this might mean that the patient is not
suffering from shingles but from something else. It isn’t always
possible to completely prevent shingles and it is never known when the
virus is going to start affecting the body.
However, Zostavax vaccine has been effective in decreasing chances of
developing this condition and prevents it from taking place. The
vaccine can also decrease the side effects that individuals go through
when they get the condition. However, this is not 100% effective as
there are many people who took the vaccine and ended up suffering from
shingles through later stages in life.

I have known about this for years. I used it on my daughter when she was seven. Aztec Indian Healing Clay! You make a poultice using the clay and vinegar -- I use raw apple cider vinegar -- and keep it on with bandages. Renewing the poultice whenever it gets dry and at least in the morning and at night. It will draw the shingles completely out.
