Shingles is an infection from the varicella zoster (herpes zoster) virus showing up in places on the body supplied by spinal nerves. The infection results in blistering skin and pain for most people. The typical outbreak stems from childhood chickenpox after which the virus remains in nerve cells for years.
A long list of analgesics and antiviral drugs like acyclovir and corticosteroids are mainstream therapies
The rash usually goes away in two to four weeks and residual nerve pain can linger for months and years after an outbreak of shingles.
Vitamin C treatment, Dr. Fredrick Klenner
Clinical studies by Dr. Klenner (1949 and 1974) gave shingles patients 1,000-5,000 mg, depending on body weight, of vitamin C injections every twelve hours with 1,000 mg in fruit juice by mouth every two hours. Complete pain relief was reported within two hours of the first injection and the blisters began to heal rapidly in seventy-two hours, a stunning result for a debilitating disease. Reoccurrence can still happen.
Chickenpox and vitamin C
For chickenpox patients, healing recovery was complete in just four days. Vitamin C being anti-viral and anti-bacterial neutralizes the infection, pain and eradicates the disease.
The spike of the bacteriophage shingles virus is iron and this is how it penetrates the nerve cells. Viruses accumulate iron and copper. Viruses, cancers and pathogens can be killed by vitamin C (Vilcheze et al. 2013), and should always be the treatment protocol.
