Shingles, also known as Herpes Zoster, is a painful blistering rash caused by the same virus as Chicken Pox (Varicella Zoster). After an attack of chicken pox, or even without a history of chicken pox, the virus remains dormant nerve ganglia for many years. If the virus becomes activated in adults, it produces zoster (shingles). In zoster, the virus spreads along the course of a spinal nerve causing a painful eruption in the area of skin supplied by the nerve. It is usually common in older people and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. Some people may experience severe nerve pain that lasts months to years after the rash has cleared. This is known as post-herpetic neuralgia.
Homeopathy has much to offer in the way of remedies for people with shingles and post-herpetic neuralgia. Many people come to try homeopathy when the medical system has not much to offer, or what has been offered has failed. If you have been diagnosed with shingles or post-herpetic neuralgia and are looking for help, homeopathy could be your solution. Stop suffering and call a qualified homeopath today – you might be pleasantly surprised.

“Symptoms represent the body’s best effort to heal itself. Hence, instead of suppressing symptoms, therapists should stimulate the body’s defenses to complete the curative process.”
