Shingles Homeopathic Treatment

Shingles (also known as herpes zoster) is a virus which affects the nerve endings and results in pain and a blister like rash which follows the route of an affected nerve. Shingles is caused by a reactivation of the previously dormant herpes varicella-zoster virus which is found in the nervous system as a result of chickenpox.

The most commonly affected areas of the body with shingles are the chest, abdomen and ribcage area and the virus tends to affect either the left or right side of the body. There are a range of treatments that can be used to ease the symptoms of the virus but no cure. Shingles homeopathic treatment is an excellent method of treatment and can help to reduce the severity of the virus and allow a sufferer to make a quicker recovery?

What is homeopathic treatment?
