10/17/2011: Pam from West Des Moines, Ia: "I have suffered for 2 years with PHN from shingles. I've read where IV Vitamin C has helped many with this condition -- but my doctor will not do this. I've read that oral Vitamin C offers no benefit -- only the IV Vitamin C allows the development of hydrogen peroxide in the tissues which makes it a pro-oxidant not an antioxidant. Is there a treatment with actual hydrogen peroxide that will do the same as IV Vit. C?"
08/17/2011: Patrice04 from Corona, Ca, Usa: "Is it possible to have Shingles in just one small spot? My cousin says this has happened to her many times- now, it seems to have happened to me as well. Just on my right arm, like my cousin. I have ALL the pain, signs, etc. However, when I see pictures online it seems that others have blisters in a much larger area."Replies
09/13/2011: Gramma Lynne from Springville, Indiana replies: "Yes, as I understand it, shingles can definitely break out only in one area. I am currently working through an episode involving only my right shoulder, arm and hand. I do believe there are underlying health issues that cause the shingles to occur in a particular area. In my case, that is a weak rotator cuff in my right shoulder. The nerves become inflamed, triggering the latent virus left over from smallpox.
I came to this site looking for help for the deep residual pain and a few persistent sores. At the moment, I'm dabbing on some ACV which I've had here all along, but didn't know to use. Too early to tell yet, but it seems as though it may be helping.
Blessings to all of you as you fight through this. It is certainly one of the more difficult things this ol' 70 year old Gramma has ever had to deal with!"
Geranium Oil Applied Externally
03/03/2014: Seanjk from Norcal, Usa: "I was looking for an internal solution to the Shingles problems for my older mother.
I very quickly cured the external shingles with geranium oil after reading some scientific papers about geranium oil. It worked far better than anything I tried, apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, etc so I thought I would pass that along. Geranium oil appears to be the magic bullet for shingles externally if my mother's case is typical.
As far as reducing the stress on the internal organs, body due the virus, I tried common antiviral organics on her after the doctors prescription antivirals failed to do anything, externally or internally, and he refused to prescribe anymore for her, even though she has an expensive private plan. The 'kind' physicians told her to go home and die more or less. He must get a bonus for not prescribing
I have her on...
- 2000 mg day of neem leaf extract -very, very safe strong antiviral , antibacterial, useful to fight cancer as well
- 2000 mg a day of olive leaf extract, strong antiviral
- 2000 mg a day of elderberry extract, strong antiviral, safe
- 6000 mg equivalent of garlic oil, strong antiviral, safe
- 6000 mg a day of time released buffered vitamin c,
- also vitamin e, d, b-complex
- and Cayenne extract
That provided some significant improvement to the stress on her, but I think I need to dose her higher on the cayenne extract. I was not watching her carefully enough on the Cayenne and she was not dosing her high enough.
There are other antivirals out there that are strong like licorice root but they can't be taken for a long time at higher doses. I had her on 2000 mg a day of licorice root for about a month."
[YEA] 07/04/2011: Dan from Bisbee, Arizona: "Hello, I want to suggest goldenseal tincture as a remedy for shingles. It tends to sting a bit but really helps to alieviate my symptoms. Also works on mouth sores and funky gums. I aply it topically and in the case of mouth problems I swish it around as long as I can then swallow it. One dropper is enough."
[YEA] 05/01/2011: Elationrelation from Minneapolis , Mn: "Natural cures help but are slow, and overall one needs to look at stress, diet, etc.
The best cure for shingles blisters is "Staphaseptic, " which is a natural ointment available in a tube from your pharmacy over-the-counter shelves. Most stock it and others will order it. (The box is white with rust-orange, yellow-gold with black accents, and is good to have on hand for other things, from simple infections, to boils, staph and even MRSA). You will see a dramatic change or even resolution within 24 hours. Apply 2-3 times per day.
The cure for the disease itself and the nerve pain is homeopathy, and though ideal to see a doctor trained in it, Arsenicum 200c works for many people. Pain level can decrease quite quickly. Continue for 2-3 days after symptoms are gone. Dosage is up to your practitioner, but often 3-5 pellets, 3-5 times a day, works.
These two things will bring dramatic change within 24 hours."Replies
05/03/2011: Eva from San Jose, Ca replies: "Homeopathic Rhus tox C30 stops the pain of shingles. I used it years ago, and now a friend of mine got shingles and he healed within a day."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 01/10/2011: Jessaka from Tahlequah, Ok: "Hi, I have been using Tabasco Sauce for years whenever I had a sore throat and always wondered how well it would do on shingles. Then my friend's husband got shingles, and I told her about it. He tried it and felt so much better that he went to his doctor and bragged to him about it. I have tried capazin on certain things, but it doesn't kill the pain as well as Tabasco Sauce."
Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda Paste
[YEA] 08/03/2013: Candace Pfau from Franklin, N.C.: "I have shingles, taking the anti viral. But accidently found out that a paste of hydrogen peroxide mixed with baking soda stops the spreading. Or changes its course. Stopped from going up my face cold turkey. Of course then it started working down my neck. Each place you feel it breaking out, the itch, a paste of this will kill it or stop it. It also makes the blisters feel better. I had used this on cuts to heal them when nothing else would. Going to try the cayene pepper."
[YEA] 03/23/2012: Ernest from Newcastle, Nsw Australia: "I have suffered with shingles for three years on the left hand side of my face the pain has been debilitating, but I have just found a treatment that has eased that pain. That treatment is a bottle of essential oil called hypericum oil, I rub it into the painful areas twice a day. Hypericum oil is oil of saint johns wort."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 02/21/2012: Renee from Pensecola, Florida: "I have read many of these replies of all treatments you have tried, I have suffered for 3 CONSTANT years now with the shingles on both sides of the body, face, arms and other places. I have found to help stop immediate itch and severe pain till anything you have taken orally can work place ICE on the blisters, red bumps, or just when the itch starts this will calm it and feels great! Ice for 20 minutes at every hour soothes the nerves."
[YEA] 08/27/2012: Sherri from North Adams, Mi. USA: "A 75 year old neighbor was suffering with shingles. It followed the nerve from the center of her back, around and under her right breast. The medicine the Dr. gave her did nothing to relieve her. I took a sray bottle and filled it with ionic silver. 3 times a day I sprayed it on her shingles soaking them good. I put a loose gauze under her breast to prevent skin to skin contact. I also had her drink 1 teaspoon of the silver 2 times a day. It gave her immediate relief. The rash developed but never blistered. It has been 3 weeks and there is hardly any outward sign of the shingles."
[YEA] 07/12/2006: Laura : "I heard about Shingles before but this is my first experience and what an experience had been so far!! It affected the left part of my face having my eye pretty compromised. I'm using antibacterial ointement for my eye, and is improving. I'm very careful with cleanness, washing right away towels, pillowcases etc. that had been in contact with my face. My main concern is to avoid the possibility of infecting also my right eye. I have a big property and love to work in the garden. Well, I'll not put my hands in the dirt until am out of the woods. I had been reading about the topical and internal application with apple vinegar and i'm willing to try since I have now those ugly red scars from the rash, maybe will help to heal faster, I'll be glad to let you know. If someone wants to write to me and exchange tips, please, feel free to do so. Following suggestions from the book in Nutritional Healing - James and Phyllis Balch - I'm taking L-Lysine, Vitamins C, B complex B12 - A - regular medication. Diet is important too, maintain a possitive attitude and stay away from depression, it doesn't help at all."
[YEA] 06/23/2006: Pat from Ann Arbor, Mich: "For me, it's the only thing I've tried, and it works every time. I used to get shingles regularly, and have used l-lysine each time, except for the time the MD didnt recognise the condition, and gave me............ antibiotics! Wow. I also use the dietary guidlines, and eat foods rich in lysine, and low in arginine. Stress will up the arginine, and bring on the outward manifestation of the virus"
[YEA] Donna from Aspen: "L-lysine, when taken immediately upon infection will cure shingles."Replies
[YEA] 09/26/2011: Louise from Saint George, Utah replies: "I have used L-Lysine for over 30 years to PREVENT and lessen the outbreak of cold sores and shingles. I first heard about it in the Saturday Evening Post in the 1980's. They apparently did several studies on the subject. At the time I had cold sore blisters on my mouth almost continually. I began to take mega-doses of L-Lysine (at least 3000 mg per day). I took them for about 15 days and because the cold sores were almost gone, I reduced the dose to about 1500 mg a day for another 30 days. I then took about 500 mg a day for another 2 or 3 months.
Then, because I had not had any breakouts, my drive to take the amino acid had become almost non-existant. What I discovered is that if I felt a tingle on my lip--I knew that an outbreak was immenent and I began to take the mega doses of L-Lysine again for a week or so. Then I never had an outbreak of cold sores again. Each time I got the tingle the L-Lysine prevented the outbreak. What I didn't know was that the virus is sneaky. I broke out in shingles on my chest during a time I wasn't taking the L-Lysine and I didn't know what the pain was signaling. When I started to breakout in the blisters I realized what it was and began the mega doses of L-Lysine again. When I was able to see a doctor to confirm my outbreak--I had no pain, and refused to take the offer of pain medication. He, of course, scoffed at the idea the the amino acid had anything to do with the lightness of my outbreak.
By the way, I've not had another outbreak of shingles, either. If I feel the burning/tingling sensation anywhere on my body. I take the mega doses of L-Lyine and I have never had any more outbreaks. IT WORKS!!!! It saved the quality of my life!"
L-Lysine and Vitaminc
[YEA] 04/04/2008: Valeria from Eden Prairie, Minnesota - USA: "I developed shingles in October 2007, however, all I had was all the discomforts of the disease and never developed the rash. About 3 days ago (4-2-08) I began experiencing the same symptoms again. It was jsut a fluke that I began taking vitamin C and Lysine tablets. I had some Lysine on hand and determined that if the Lysine was good for preventing or lessening the pain of cold sores - why shouldn't it work to help allieviate the shingles. So I began taking the Lysine and also the Vitamin C. The dosage of the tablets for the Lysine is 1000 mg. and the Vitamin C is also 1000 mg. I have been taking two Vitamin C and 2 Lysine tablets about every four hours and it is definitely helping to relive the pain. I have also had pain meds which my doctor recommended last fall - but they do not seem to do much of anything. I hope that this will help someone else - I am 77 and never had shingles before last October. I have not developed the rash this time either."
[YEA] 03/31/2007: Kathy from Mitchell, NE: "Dear sufferers of shingles, Don't. Lysine and Vitamine C seem to be the best get rid of them forever cure. I have had about 3 or 5 breakouts in 20 years since I discovered Lysine and Vitamin C. Always take the Lysine the minute you notice a breakout. Before this my breakout would occure regularly. My life is high stress. stress causes outbreaks. If the lysine and c dont quite do it, add liquid b vitamins also to your diet. So far, I'm going on 8 years since my last breakout!"
