Pain from Shingles
by: Terence

We are aware that a few customers have used our olive leaf extract tincture for shingles. We have not promoted it for shingles and I do not have any written testimonials but have had the following verbal feedback:

1. When taken early on it apparently reduced the duration and severity of the attack. This is hard to prove but was the belief of the lady concerned.

2. We gave some via a friend to a young man well into a severe attack. Over about two or three weeks it completely cleared up. Apparently the rash went half way around his waist and was excruciating but he was of the opinion that it was the olive leaf extract that cleared it up.
Once again there is no way of knowing whether it would have cleared up by itself in the same time or not.
Dr. Morton Walker in his book "Olive Leaf Extract" lists shingles (Herpes Zoster) among the conditions for which olive leaf extract acts as an antimcrobial agent.

If it is only the pain after a bout of shingles that some people have that you are asking about, I would suggest trying DMSO. Dr. Walker also wrote a book about this which may help. You can look at it by pasting the link below into your browser.

How is your vitamin D level? Dr. Pinkus insists we need 5000 units per day to get to a serum level of 50 in the blood for optimum health. Worth trying is his sublingual formula-call 1-800-910-9921 for his ultra absorbable formula.

Note: Vit D3 levels should be tested after a month as too much is toxic.

It works!
by: Elaine

After getting shingles and being in so much pain, I started researching. I learned about Olive leaf extract and started taking it. The Dr. said shingles could last from 6 months to 2 years. I said, I don't think so. After 6 weeks shingles and sensitivity was gone. Now I take olive leaf extract regularly. I never want the shingles again. I also believe it keeps me from getting flu and other things.

Vitamin E
by: Anonymous

My daughter was diagnosed with Shingles few years ago when she was a teen.
I read somewhere that vitamin E can treat it and reduce the pain, I started giving her between 400 to 800 international units of vitamin E, plus put the vitamin e on the painful areas where the Shingles boils were showing and the painful areas.

I did that every day for about a month; the pain was gone before the end of one week, but I continued the topical treatment, and the infected areas bumps and boils were gone after about a month. This happened to my daughter more than twenty years ago, the Shingles never came back.

I suggest continuing to take 400 IU of vitamin E every day, as a maintenance treatment after the one month initial treatment.

B 12 is your friend
by: Anonymous

An injection of 1200mcg of B12 does wonders for shingles. If given at the first sign of breakout it will dry them right up, however it needs to be given once a week if they still linger or are slow in disappearing.

Mother-in-law 89 years of age with shingles on right side of face. Apart from mainstream medication Prednisone and Valtrax we have used Olive Leaf Extract (15% wanted 20% Oleuropein) 4 capsules 6 times a day without food. As well as supplementary vitamins suggested on the net (e.g. proteolytic enzymes, colloidal silver, Vit C, E B's pantothenic acid, brewers yeast, liquid greens...

Her request for pain relief tablets began to fall the day we got a therapeutic dose of Olive Leaf Extract into her (about 4 days after blisters appeared) and 3 days later no pain relief tablets taken, she has mild sense of pain still in her forehead.
Also using emu oil on blisters

I am sorry to be so ordinary, but when strong painkillers didn't help my shingles pain I took regular aspirin. It didn't get rid of it completely, but decreased it by at least 50%.

Wife's Shingles - Female area
by: Anonymous

We were told to use steroids. The cream was worthless. She got the most healing benefit from "Apple Cider Vinegar" mixed with filtered water at a ration of 1TBS to 3TBS and applied topically every 2hours. This was alternated with Tumeric mixed with coconut oil, water, and black pepper. Ratio: 1/2 cup organic turmeric to 1 cup of water heated on low heat to thicken into a paste for about 7 minutes. You want it a bit loose like good gravy. Then add 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1 tsp or black pepper. Mix throughly. Put in storage container. Apply to shingles. Wear gloves and protect bed, etc. Stains. Takes out the pain and swelling. Apply alternately with the vinegar solution.

Week three applying Olive Leaf Extract made with two capsules opened and powder mixed with 2 TBS olive oil. Stir to mix and infuse for at least 3 hours. Amazing results. This has replaced the turmeric and vinegar now. Be sure to mix enough ahead to have on hand through the night. Also, take two Olive Leaf Extract capsules every 4 hours for at least two days and reduce to 3 times a day.

vinyl gloves a must for all. A kitchen garbage bags with an old towel on the bed or chair. It all stains.
