From time to time I like to post a recent question that I received about a natural health topic. Sometimes I forget all the little things that I have learned along the way so here is the most recent.
Shingles is becoming prevalent among the baby boomer generation, do you know why?
The shingles virus is the same as the chickenpox virus. Since the advent of the chickenpox vaccine children are no longer getting chickenpox during childhood. This might be nice for the kids but unfortunately for those adults who did have chickenpox as a child, the only way for them to continue their lifelong immunity is to be re-exposed to the virus periodically from their children, grandchildren, etc. So the result is shingles. Now it seems funny to me that they have created a shingles vaccine to correct a problem created from the chickenpox vaccine. The good news is you don't have to live with shingles, I have had some very good success with a program blending herbs, essential oils and other nutrients for helping the body eliminate the virus. If you're interested we are taking appointments now. Just call.
