Its the end of the 5th day, (since the rash appeared,) and Im putting shingles behind me and not doing much more treatment other than maybe a couple of extra doses of vitamin C here and there.
So basically this is what I did:
In the few days before I had the rash I had a few moments where I felt a cold was trying to latch on to me. To fix this I just took 5 grams of vitamin C and as usual the symptoms would go away. I felt completely fine. I had a couple of moments where with hindsight I think I had a fever, but its the middle of summer here so I just thought it was an extra hot part of the day. I didnt feel ill at all, so I had no reason to think anything of it.
So early Friday morning I developed what I thought were unbelievably itchy hives down my ribs,hip and thigh. I sprayed Schweitzer Formula over them which worked wonderfully at stopping the itching. By the end of Friday the itching as the "hives" hadnt gone away. As they were looking blistery & were only on one side of my body and would suddenly hurt a bit every so often, I started to realise it could well be shingles. Around 11pm they suddenly became unbearable & thats when it clicked. I continued with the Schweitzer Formula until around lunch time the next day. Then I switched to Colloidal Silver . I had vitamin C doses every so often too.
Instant relief from the topical Colloidal Silver and the rash started to reduce too. I was a bit worried that like with when I had Chicken Pox it would disappear before I could see a Dr, so I held off a bit with the treatment.
I didnt see a Dr for medical treatment, I just wanted a diagnosis to be sure.
After seeing the Dr I started taking Colloidal Silver orally & topically, and zapping - and watching the rash start to fade away before my eyes. Its actually amazing how soon you see a difference! I use a Clark Zapper with adhesive pads which is very handy because I was able to move the pads around to direct the flow through the effected area.
I drank lots of water and just stayed in bed reading for most of the last 4 days. Within 48 hours of the rash was pretty much over and done with, earlier even. I knew after the first day Id beaten it. But it still looked very red and there was still the case of the scabs not being fully healed.
Not all of the rash scabbed up, hardly any did really - and very tiny. The rash mostly just shrank and faded away after I started zapping. (Same thing happened with Chicken Pox.)
Ive been eating mostly raw foods, though there have been a couple of times when I havent felt hungry at all, and a couple of times where I felt like eating salty plain potato chips, so I did (-:
So throughout this all Ive not feeling ill in the slightest and there was no discomfort. I was really comfortable up until yesterday just as if I didnt have shingles at all. Ive been a little bit tired here & there, but I consider that normal when the bodies fighting off something.
Since yesterday evening (day 4.) Ive had some minor itching, tickling & tingling here and there. Its annoying. For comparison though, I hung out some washing earlier and got bitten by mosquitos and sand flies - that was worse!
Almost forgot - also the occasional ache in the head. I cant describe it as a head ache because it hasnt been like a regular head ache. Just an odd ache, but again, not for more than a moment or two.
There is redness where the rash was, but apart from a couple of tiny pin prick sized marks, its all healed.
I realise my treatment is experimental & that some people may regard this approach as suppressive - and thats something worth thinking about. For now Im pleased & hopefully there wont be any long term problems from it.
Ive been using zappers and colloidal silver for about 10 years now, vitamin C megadoses for 20 years. They have never failed me.
