Shingles and Postherpetic Neuralgia Along with Scolioisis

Posted by G on 08/20/2007

Ted, I finally acheived my 7.4 Ph balance, and hope to retain it. There has been norelief of pain from shingles/PHN, but I am now taking olive leaf Phyto-Caps, after recently reading that a man who had shingles for nine years was healed after taking olive leaf extract. Do you know if the extract is better than the liquid olive leaf in capsule form? Thank you for your recent advice; I had to stop the acv with soda because my healed 2003 pelvic fracture again became painful. Our parayers are with those suffering from the Peruvian earthquake and recent Jamaican hurricane, Dean, and hoping it will not cause more devastation in Texas or Mexico.

Thanks for the feedback. Shingles is a virus condition, where a temporary relief with olive leaf extract is strongly anti-viral, but if the body's pH is off being acidic, the immunity is problematic where the body lacks zinc, magnesium, vitamin D3, and vitamin K2, the shingles might still come back. Shingles is a virus but my own experience with olive leaf extract varies on its effectiveness, however it does result in quick relief, but other things that prevent them from coming back such as baking soda (alone), zinc, magnesium, vitamin D3, and vitamin K2.

The increased in pain from pelvic fractures sounds like osteporosis like the body needs vitamin D3, magnesium, boron, and K2. My experience is that much of the relief may be obtained with magnesium since it is also antiviral against the shingles as well as the vitamin D3, and vitamin K2. While boron (borax) is anti fungal which causes bones to loose its strenght since mycobacterium is strongly attached to the larger bone area and I suspect boron may provide the needed boost in removing the source of the problem. Mycobacterium and fungus grows slowly and eats through calcium, much like fungus that grows in bathroom. Given enough time they can just digest the calcium ceramics and cement just the same. Because of both conditions, I suspect the body's immune system to be a problem for both conditions. Raising pH to 7.4 should help, although the pain cause by taking baking soda and apple cider vinegar appears more that the body's lack ability to maintain calcium metabolism where vitamin D3, boron, and magnesium should be taken also.
