Shingles and Postherpetic Neuralgia Along with Scolioisis
Ted, I hope that you can help in my case. I have had shingles/postherpetic neuralgia for almost two years; this is complicated by scoliosis which occurred about the same time, though an injury to the spine while in school started the problem of a gradual tilting, but became dreadfully painful with the shingles attack. Could the scoliosis be from calcification? If so, could acv with baking soda help restore me to health? I have tried many oils, ointments, creams, and take vitamins and nineral supplements, also eat a healthful diet, but nothing has stopped the pain. I am also electricity sensitive, (ES), and turn off the circuit breakers in rooms to be out of electromagnetic fields. My nerve injury from shingles may have been caused by following the very limted diet of Dr. Max Gerson's, but that was long ago; also I did not have chicken pox when a child, but may have had it a few years ago when contaminated distilled water was brought to me which had a white powdery residue in the container after drinking it. Nothing has relieved the great pain- neither healthful diet, vitamin E applied, or other balms. Your recommendation to take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda with acv brought to mind that I read that one should never use baking soda on vegetables (to retain their color in cooking) because it depletes vitamins. From your comments baking soda is necessary with the acv, and contributes to alkalinity and fighting viruses; as this is an auto-immune disease (with additional rashes), what can you recommend for restoring health? Thank you, and i hope to read your reply soon!
