IV Treatments for Shingles

Shingles is awful. I haven’t experienced it myself but I’ve heard it’s one of the most painful things you can go through. Patients who I’ve seen, find that the pain has affected their sleep so then they are tired for weeks. It’s also decreased their appetite. Having less sleep and eating less food would cause even more fatigue and negatively impact their quality of life.

There’s some great research supporting the use of intravenous vitamin C in the treatment of shingles or Herpes Zoster.

Symptoms of Shingles

The pain usually starts before the rash begins 2-3 days afterwards. Many people have persistent or recurrent pain in that same area that can last for months or years.

The pain of postherpetic neuralgia may be sharp and intermittent or constant and may be debilitating. Vitamin C has been shown to treat and prevent this post-rash pain.

Natural Treatments for Shingles

B12 injections into the same dermatome or around where the rash is also part of the treatment.

High dose vitamin C such as 20g has been researched and supported. Ideally the treatment is 2-3 times the first week as soon as possible and then 1 a week for 3 weeks.

Is IV therapy right for me?

Kerri and I shot our second video with Carole from Sugar Productions this past Friday. We focused on IV therapy and had a room full of great people getting their IVs. The video isn’t ready yet but I wanted to share our sample script to show you all the ways we can help with IV therapy.

Intravenous Vitamin Therapy is an incredible option for our patients. IV therapy truly heals the body at the cellular level so we can get our patients feeling better faster while our other regular treatments start to work.

We bathe the cells in nutrients by bypassing the digestive system where we can lose some of that absorption. We can also get much higher doses of the vitamins in without causing all of the gastric upset.

The number of treatments you will need depends on your condition and how nutrient deficient you are. We will discuss your case during your appointment time prior to starting IV therapy.

IV therapy works exceptionally well for acute conditions like:

  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Cramps – either menstrual or muscle
  • Colds & flus
  • Post surgery wound healing.

It also works really well for things like

  • adrenal fatigue,
  • anxiety,
  • seasonal allergies

Many chronic diseases can also benefit:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Crohn’s & Collitis
  • Cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Eating disorders
  • Asthma
  • Seasonal Allergies

Generally, almost every one can benefit from IV therapy. It is a rapid delivery of nutrients, fast acting, helps detoxification and energy. Essentially, IV therapy is a fast and effective way to jump start your body’s own healing mechanisms.
