Shingles is a condition of skin rash caused by the virus called Varicella Zoster. This is the same virus which causes chicken pox. If you have had chickenpox the virus may take shelter in your nerves and stay dormant. After a few years this virus can reappear because of a weakening of the immune system due to stress, drugs, surgery, old age or poor health.


If you are in search of natural remedy for shingles, here are few;


 Lysine: Lysine is proved to be a best available natural remedy for shingles. It prevents the absorption of a chemical called arginine which is required by the virus causing shingles to stay active. 1,000mg of lysine can be taken up to three times a day. Lysine can provide you immediate results. Lysine should not be taken with any milk product. If used properly lysine can be one among the best natural remedies
