Shingles and Postherpetic Neuralgia Along with Scolioisis
Dear Ted, My PHN pain is so severe, and there seems to be no help at all from the olive leaf Phyto Caps which I have taken now for about two weeks. What kind of relief comes first? I have not had any relief from pain all these two years, and realise that maybe it is because of the length of time I have had shingles/PHN, and the fact that in the beginning I had to decrease the dosage of acyclovir due to dizzyness.
There is not one cream, oil, ointment or salve that does not cause extreme pain when applied, and no relief after application.
I will continue with the oilive leaf extract Phyto Caps, but like the other information I have researched, they all clam to help or money back, but none help relieve pain, and none seem to fight the virus other than tea tree oil- this is painful when applied to eyebrow area. (When not ill, tea tree oil never caused me pain, but does now..)
My Ph has been 7.4 except for several days when I did not drink the green drink (barley sprout juice powder) twice a day; also I used sour cream with fish, which may have contributed to acidity.
If you had shingles for two years, what would you take for it? Systems are differant, but few ads mention this, and I do not see how I can endure this for more and more years! I still take the boron (in water and supplement three times a day, plus other supplements), and will have to take my strong pain reliever soon, which drug I would rather not take at all- a form of vicodin- morphine.)
Thank you for being there not only for myself, but for the many you help! Earth Clinic and you deserve an Award!
