THE PAIN OF SHINGLES
1-in-3 people will get Shingles. And the older you are, the more likely you are to get it. In this episode, we talk about:
--That Shingles is on the rise since around 1994, but it's not certain as to why.
--How the exact same virus which causes Chicken Pox also causes Shingles. And how the pattern of Shingles follows along the pathways of the nervous system.
--Why Dr. Prather calls Shingles an "opportunistic" virus caused by a lowered immune system from illness, stress, and even prescription medicines (such as cholesterol drugs and antibiotics).
--The symptoms of Shingles, including pain that is usually confined to one side of the body. And how Shingles can be dangerous enough to cause death, blindness, or hearing loss.
--Why you can't get Shingles from someone, but you can get the Shingles virus from someone.
--How Shingles can be prevented. Plus, the effectiveness of the Shingles vaccine.
--The natural treatments for Shingles used at The Prather Practice, including certain herbals, vitamins, and minerals that boost the patient's immune system.
--How Homeopathy and Chiropractic adjustments can help with Shingles. And the amazing story of how a Colorado hospital started using a homeopathic spray formula to relieve Shingles because Dr. Prather sent it to the daughter of a patient.
--Why keeping your body alkaline will decrease your likelihood of getting Shingles. And why Dr. Prather calls red laser acupuncture one of their "secrets" to effectively treating Shingles.
--The foods you should avoid to prevent Shingles, including chocolate and carbonated beverages. And the foods you SHOULD eat to help with Shingles.
