Shingles or Herpes Zoster

I don't know if you have encountered this before but this is the same virus that causes chicken pox when we were young and when it comes back then you may call it shingles. They usually occur to older people or people who under went surgery and had low immune system. It occurs to my brother when he had Gastritis and his resistance was so weak.

I'll tell you that having this one its no joke and it really gives you a stabbing, tinkling, and itching feeling. Its viral quality moves on the infected nerve and if not treated this will get worser day after day. Doctors may prescribed you antiviral capsules like valtrex which is costly depending on the dosage like 6 capsules everyday that he discontinued taking it after he found out that Aloe Vera leaves can cure it.


Here's my story of my brother's encounter of shingles healed by Aloe Vera leaves in just a few days. He first notice it as a rash on his waist. He didn't mind it and he was thinking it would eventually heal by itself. Day after day its getting bigger and worst and its filled with liquid inside of it. Now he got worried and so he take action by searching it on google and for hours of searching he found it and it matches to the description and images. This is definitely it and to confirm it, He went to the dermatologist then she confirm as herpes zoster or shingles. She prescribed him antiviral medicine which he should take 6 capsules a day. Since he still do not know other alternatives so he bought 6 capsules for a day. When he got home he immediately search the internet of other remedies of this then he found Lemon Balm but unfortunately it is not available in his country and that you have to order it online and It would take more days to arrive.

Since Lemon Balm is impossible to achieve but he did not lose any hope so he dig again for alternatives then he came across to a website made by a fellow Filipino. He stumbled on the site called PhilippineHerbalMedicine.Org he found different native herbal plants like ginger, gummamela, garlic and many more amazing herbs. He continue reading on that site and then found Aloe Vera and its amazing medicinal qualities and the important thing he found is its Antiviral, Antifungal, Antiparasitic and Antibiotic qualities. Next thing he did is he search the internet about Aloe Vera and read some healing miracle on Shingles. Many testimonials confirm that Aloe Vera does heal Shingles and he was convinced to take Aloe Vera to treat his Shingles.

He phone his friends, relatives and co workers to bring some Aloe Vera leaves and they ask why but he said this is what he need to cure his Shingles. He did not buy anymore those antiviral tablets because one it is very expensive and two it really dries up his lips and feel so dehydrated because of the drug's side effects. So the next day his friends came and brought him some Aloe Vera leaves and immediately he peel off the green covering and expose only the gel and sticky fluid. He started applying it on the infected area in a circular motion every hour or every time it dries up. Amazingly for just 5 days he notice changes on his shingles and it started to change its color to brownish and the inflammation was gone. Seven days after continually applying Aloe Vera, his shingles turns to black and it never had a pus on it as what the doctor said to him that It would produce pus in a few days but it never occur.

Ten days later, it started to peel off like an old skin going off. He was definitely impress by Aloe Vera and its effective healing quality.

hi, i just wanted to share that you can add some Oil of Melissa which is Lemon Grass Oil to your Aloe Vera ( I use 100% pure aloe gel) and you can apply this to eczema, red ant bites, shingles, or any blistery, painful skin eruption that you need to. It is VERY calming and healing to the skin. It seems to work FAST too. ALso, there are natural things out here that work on Herpes Zoster Virus. Good luck and have a good one. just wanted to share.

Hi Uzzi. Aloe vera does a wonderful things to me when I had shingles. I really never thought that a humble Aloe Vera leaves is what I need at that time.

I actually had experience shingles twice but the second time it didn't able to propagate because I was able to anticipate it and applied aloe vera gel on it. Right now I'm norturing some Aloe Vera in my backyard and usee it sometimes to my face and neck for cleansing and healing.

Good Luck... Have a great day.
