Remember some of these I have tried on myself and others I have not. These are suggestions and should not be used without consulting a Physician. I or any other person which have entered these here or suggested them are NOT and will NOT be responsible for any ill effect these may have on you. Sorry Folks C.M.A. on this one.


  1. In answer to several queries, shingles are a very painful skin condition that is caused by a re-emergence of the chicken pox virus. It causes a rash that swells and reddens the skin, making it sensitive to any touch or pressure. It is not pleasant at all, but will usually subside with time & treatment.


  2. Yes, there are several natural treatments for shingles, here's one of the better ones: Drink 2-3 cups a day of Lemon Balm tea (fresh, not packaged) add, if possible, with 5 drops tincture of St. John's Wort (Hypericum Perforatum) & 10 drops tincture of Baikal skullcap (Scutellaria Baicalensis) to each cup.

    *** WARNING: Do not take the above if you are currently using MAO inhibitors of any sort ie- zoloft, paxil, etc...

    Topical treatment: Rather than mess about making a poultice, if you don't have a prescription ointment, I recommend a pure vitamin E oil, and a lidocane ointment for pain.

    Hope this helps your friend, let me know if you have any questions...
