Juicing Recipes for Shingles Relief

Many people are surprised to learn that shingles is actually caused by the herpes varicella zoster virus, the same one that causes cold sores and chickenpox.  As a child, when a person develops a case of chickenpox they heal but the virus that caused the illness is left within the body where it sits dormant.  When the body’s immune system is strong, it helps fight this particular virus, thus preventing a case of shingles.  However, extreme stress, poor general health, and a compromised immune system can trigger the herpes virus into action.  As a result, extremely painful sores known as shingles develop.

Because the virus responsible for herpes remains in the nervous system, when shingles is triggered sores appear along nerve paths typically around the waist, on the underside of the arms, and on the chest.  While living a healthy lifestyle certainly helps keep shingles at bay, sometimes sores appear anyway.  Seeing a doctor would be important, especially in severe cases but one thing people can do is use juicing recipes for shingles relief.  With the right fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, seeds, and nuts, the immune system can be bolstered, which in turn provides relief.
