Chicken Pox (also known as Shingles, Varicella Zoster, or Herpes zoster) is caused by a virus that is closely related to the Herpes simplex virus. This virus is prone to hiding along nerves under the skin and may cause recurring infection through life.
When Herpes zoster infection occurs in children it is known as chicken pox when infection occurs or reoccurs in adults, it is known as shingles.
Shingles is a viral infection of the nervous system that starts with fatique, fever, chills, and intestinal upset. The affected skin areas become sensitive and prone to blistering.
A childhood bout with chicken pox may leave the virus dormant in sensory (skin) nerves. If the immune system is taxed by severe emotional stress, illness, or long-term use of cortico-steroids, the dormant viruses may become active and start to infect the pathway of the skin nerves.
Hopinso, Do you have any essential oils? I would NOT rub them directly on the rash, but instead on the bottoms of your feet. Some essential oils that could be of help would be; lavender, tea tree, oregano, clove, sandalwood, melissa, peppermint, thyme, cyress. I would dilute the essential oils in coconut or any pure carrier oil you might have such a olive oil, then rub them on the bottoms of your feet or along the spine (if you have someone who could do this for you).
[The reason I suggest essential oils is they will clean the receptor sites (cells) so that the Iodine can get to work and do its magic. Also they will raise your body frequency so that your body can fight this virus.]
If what you are experiencing is detox from the Iodine therapy and not shingles, I still recommend essential oils for the same reasons as I stated above.
Also... I seem to remember that vitamin C can be of great benefit. Does anyone know if my memory serves me right??
While taking the iodine, did you follow the other recommended things; Vitamin C, magnesium, selenium, Sea Salt , water? And if so, have you kept taking these after stopping with the internal Lugols? Also, are you painting with Iodine during this time?
