(SilverBulletin) Every year, millions of people suffer from outbreaks of shingles, a viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus (the same virus that causes chickenpox). Mainstream medical science tells us that there are no cures for shingles and that only mainstream drugs can effectively manage symptoms. In actuality, there are a number of natural remedies which can help manage and relieve shingles and possibly even eliminate the virus.
Anti-Herpes, Shingles, and Cold Sore Protocol
Shingles spreads through the skin as a rash or blister similar to chicken-pox. It is associated with grueling pain, itchiness, burning sensation and sometimes even numbness. Once the blisters burst open they can often be healed within a week or two, leaving behind light scars which will soon disappear.
While shingles may not be a deadly disease, it can be dangerous for people with weakened immune systems, such as those suffering from HIV, those getting mainstream cancer treatments and those who have organ transplants.
When shingles rash appears on the cheek or near the eyes, it is important to get prompt medical attention, as shingles in the eyes can cause temporary or permanent loss of vision.
To avoid shingles outbreaks:
*Build and maintain a strong natural immune system. See:
*Get plenty of rest.
*Avoid and manage stress.
A good combination for getting rid of shingles is colloidal silver, proteolytic enzymes and olive leaf extract.
Colloidal silver is an extremely effective pathogen destroyer which can be taken internally as well as applied topically. Recent studies have found that: 1) Colloidal silver attaches itself to viruses and prevents them from replicating and 2) There are specific silver receptors on human nerve tissue – the location where the shingles virus "hides out".
Proteolytic enzymes are produced naturally by the pancreas to help digest the protein, and they are reported to be able to strip away the protective outer layers and heads of viruses. These enzymes are found in certain foods, such as papaya and pineapple, and are also available in supplement form.
In a German study, 96 people with shingles took proteolytic enzymes for 14 days and another 96 people with shingles took acyclovir, a standard antiviral medication. Both groups experienced similar pain relief and skin improvement. The group taking proteolytic enzymes had significantly fewer side effects.
Olive leaf extract is a very effective anti-viral that has been reported to conquer viruses that mainstream medicine considers impossible to eliminate, such as Hepatitis-C. One patient who had suffered from shingles for nine years reported experiencing complete relief within two days after beginning to use olive leaf extract.
