Shingles Symptoms & Treatment

shingles-treatment

People suffering from shingles, naturally would like to get rid of this painful, blistering skin rash by searching for a shingles treatment.

Lasting anywhere between two to four weeks, or even longer, one out of every three people may experience shingles symptoms during their lifetime. And more than half of all shingles cases occurs in people over the age of 60. People in the know are of the opinion that the shingles virus is caused by the varicella zoster virus. This is the identical virus which causes chickenpox. It prefers to live in the nerve cells of the human body, and when reactivated, inflames those cells.

 

Shingles Symptoms

First of the shingles symptoms is often extreme sensitivity or pain in a broad band on one side of the body. This can be in the waist, under an arm, in the neck or even in the face. The sensation can be itching, tingling, burning, constant aching, or a deep, shooting, or “lightning bolt” pain.

Other nonspecific symptoms that can occur at the same time are fever, chills, headache, and itching. One to three days after the pain has started, a rash with raised, red bumps and blisters erupts on the skin in the same distribution as the pain.

 

Shingles Treatment

Colloidal silver has been proven to be very effective against some virus and/or infection. The unique property of colloidal silver is that its silver ions appear to kill pathogenic micro-organisms instantly. It does that by blocking the respiratory enzyme system (energy production).

Bacteria are single celled “animals”. They do not have lungs with which to breathe, so they depend on attaching themselves to certain enzymes for metabolism in order live and thrive. Silver acts upon these enzymes and prevents the bacteria from breathing, therefore “suffocating” them.

 

What is Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal silver is made up of microscopic particles, suspended or dissolved in de-mineralized water. It can be drunk or used in lotions and sprays. For centuries silver has been used for its antimicrobial properties to prevent and treat a variety of diseases and most notably infections. Thus, colloidal silver it is the perfect choice as a shingles treatment.

 

Your Immune System

Besides affecting the skin, shingles also attacks when the auto-immune system is weak. Therefore, a shingles treatment should also include the building up of the immune system. Here too, colloidal silver benefits the body.

According to Professor Patrick Bouic, chief technical officer at a biotechnology company and professor at the University of Stellenbosch, taken as a tonic, ionic colloidal silver (due to the anti-inflammatory properties) “most likely helps to normalize the body at a cellular level, allowing the immune system to operate more efficiently. It helps your body to heal itself.”
