Earth Foods….Shingles on the Rise

Shingles outbreaks in the US are on the rise and considered a very serious condition. Your doctor has limited treatments for shingles but you can do much more to help yourself. Herpanacine is the best choice for treating and preventing shingles. If you have suffered from shingles you know you don’t want it again. The pain from shingles is excruciating and nerve pain (postherpetic Neuralgia) can last for years.

Sovereign Silver Gel is very effective at healing the blisters associated with Shingles and will not sting.  


Note: The shingles vaccine should not be used by anyone being treated for immune system problems including, cancer, radiation, HIV/AIDS, those on anti-viral treatment, steroids, and those receiving immune suppressants for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Herpanacine is a great way to treat and protect against shingles infection.        

The signs and symptoms of shingles usually effect only a small section of one side of your body. These signs and symptoms may include:

  • Pain, burning, numbness or tingling
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • A red rash that begins a few days after the pain
  • Fluid-filled blisters that break open and crust over
  • Itching

Some people also experience:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Fatigue

Your physician will diagnose and provide treatment for Shingles.  Shingles around the face and eyes is a medical emergency and can result in blindness. Shingles in any area of the body should be treated as an emergency and you should seek help.
