Before spending your hard earned money may I suggest a few alternatives? And most of the suggestions, you will find with some searches, have to do with alkalizing. Better nutrition will also help.
For shingles Take a look at http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/shingles.html
A few examples
“"I ended up on your site looking for a cure for shingles. I found it and it involved among other things Apple cider vinegar to be ingested and a mix of Aloe vera and crushed cayenne pepper rubbed on the redness which almost instantly brought the blisters to a head. I was done with shingles in about a week. Because of all the testimonials here, I decided to keep on taking the ACV orally 3 times a day. In liquid form or capsules. I realized that my flow of urine got stronger and started to last much longer. I had prostate problems for a few years and I was taking every day some very expensive herbal tea that was working somewhat. I decided to stop the herbal tea and stay on the ACV only. I now pee like a 15 years old and I'm not on any medication. ACV also cured me of my insomnia! ”
“What I first thought were infected insect bites turned out to be shingles. While I did not have any pain, I had extremely itchy lumps that blistered and spread till they formed one large area on my neck and were popping up in other places as well. I had tried various things like hydrogen peroxide, aloe vera gel and betadine but they only gave temporary relief from the itching and did not stop them spreading. I remembered your site and read about using ACV for shingles and thought I would give it a go before I gave up and went to the doctor. I just used a cotton-ball and dabbed it straight onto the whole area that was affected every couple of hours. It gave me immediate relief from the itching (although it stung a bit for a few minutes) and within a couple of days it had dried up completely, the scabs were healing and it had stopped spreading. It is now about a week since I started using ACV and the shingles have virtually disappeared. Thanks heaps!”
Now for Herpes

"For this week, I am doing experiments on the efficacy of zinc acetate and magnesium chloride solutions against genital herpes virus and herpes simplex virus. It took me only two days to cure my aunt, but hope to reduce that to only one day would be nice. However, she was suffering months using the typical hospital meds (it is actually almost a year but who's counting?) I also found that zinc acetate and magnesium chloride solution (and some fulvic acid) effectively stopped food poisoning due to bacteria. So I guess it is great for stomach ailments.
With this treatment, Herpes is gone within a day, but the virus can remain dormant for a month. I haven't got the Science
of virus down to a tee how long they can remain dormant. This is true of any viruses, whether they are AIDs or even Herpes simplex. You still need to keep applying the solution of Zinc Chloride and Magnesium Chloride at least 4 times a day and do it for at least a month.
The exact measurement for the herpes simplex cure is a 5% concentration of Zinc Chloride and a 5% concentration of Magnesium Chloride. This is the simplest formula that is most easy to remember. Viruses take a long time to kill because they hide inside your body.
To quicken the kill so they can no longer hide dormant, you should take 25-50 mg. of zinc acetate for a week alternatively. This means take this one week on and take it one week off. Do this for about two months.
The other thing is you need to alkalize ...
"The easiest treatment and simplest treatment for herpes is to use fresh olive leaf or use olive leaf extract. However, in practice I used more than one just to make sure they don't come back again.
Since I am talking about olive leaf, this is also used against Epstein-Barr Virus and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as well, due to its antiviral properties. As a result, I have cut and paste portions describing in more details the oleuropeins found in olive leaf -- see below. I suspect that olive leaf extract when mixed with apple cider vinegar would increase its antiviral potency, especially when you have the common colds or pneumonia coming.
For those already against vaccination
the olive leaf can be eaten regularly as a protection against other deadly viral diseases as well."
"Try about 1-2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar three times a day. If it is too sour for you, mix it in water. I do have some reservations about using honey but if necessary you may add it. If you can get a good clear solution of Colloidal Silver
it is really helpful for herpes conditions. While most help will be from olive leaf, it is best that you take whatever you have with you.
The secret to alleviating your herpes has a lot to do with your diet as it affects your immune system. Most important is to avoid Sugar
completely, especially avoid soda pop, shakes, candies, cookies, cakes, and ice cream. These are main sources of Sugar
which fuels viral growth and shuts down your immunity system for about 2-3 hours. [** Earth Clinic's additional note: completely AVOID any diet products containing Aspartame
as this ingredient can trigger a herpes outbreak within hours.**]
Secondly avoid all fried foods, and fast foods, these harm the liver with needed toxins, and most obvious is smoking and drinking. Alcoholic drinks destroys the liver by hardening it. Vegetable oils and margarine are the worse offenders as they are both hydrogenated and trans fatty acid, which is forbidden by farmers in feeding pigs. Pigs will die from hardening of arteries if you feed pigs with vegetable oil rich foods. Eating just fresh vegetables -uncooked and unsweetened salad dressing, such as olive oil and lemon. Partially boiled eggs is helpful as it contains lecithin and will help the liver recover. Take some zinc supplements, especially zinc acetate and/or zinc gluconate as these zinc compounds are strongly antiviral. One secret to curing herpes that my friend mentioned sometime ago, is to take aspirin twice a day along with a strong black coffee. For some reason, aspirin has been shown to be strongly antiviral. If it wasn't for aspirin with some caffeine, my sister would have died of pneumonia. For some reason, authorities do not like using aspirin, but they do work on herpes just as well.
