Shingles is caused by the same virus as Chicken Pox. The virus may lie dormant in a nerve root in the spine for many years until reactivated by stress; when this happens, the virus multiplies and attacks the nerve, causing searing, knife-like pains along its course. A few days later the skin above the nerve erupts in itchy blisters; these generally heal within one week, but the nerve pains can last for many weeks.
Shingles has been treated by homeopathy.
Shingles requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
