Natural Holistic Remedies for Shingles

Just recently a good friend of mine came down with shingles. Aww man, I feel so bad for her. It must be horrible, and I wish there was more I could do for her to ease her suffering, so it prompted me to look it up in my article list. Sure enough, I found it was one of my orphaned articles from the old Yahoo Contributor Network / Associated Content library. I’m going to pass is on to her and hopefully have enough ingredients to make her my relief spray. She’s at the doc’s now, and hopefully they’ll give her something to alleviate the horrible symptoms.

Anyway, here’s the article from 2009 in it’s entirety:

There are so many natural and holistic remedies for all types of maladies these days that it is difficult to weed through all the bad or mis-information strewn across the web. This series of articles, “Natural Holistic Remedies” will address only the tried and true remedies and natural therapies, either through personal experience or gathered from trusted sources. I’ve been studying these types of holistic cures and aids for over over 20 years and have discovered many new concepts as well as debunking some older (and some newer ones too).

General Shingles Information

Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral infection of the nerve roots. Shingles affects the nerve endings in the skin and results in pain and a rash. Shingles affects 750,000 Americans annually. It can strike at any age but is most common in people older than 40.

Possible Causes of Shingles

Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox When a person has chicken pox, it lives dormant in the body. If it becomes active, it results in a case of the shingles, not another bout of the chicken pox. Approximately 90 percent of people who have chicken pox are at risk of developing shingles. Stress, cancer, use of anti-cancer drugs, spinal cord injuries, the common cold and immune system problems can trigger shingles. People who have never contracted chicken pox have very little chance of developing shingles.

Possible Symptoms of Shingles

The first signs of shingles appear as three or four days of chills, fever, body aches and sometimes pain in the affected area. Then tiny blisters with red rims appear, along with extreme pain and sensitivity at the site. Other symptoms of shingles include fatigue, numbness, depression, tingling, shooting pains, swollen lymph nodes, headache and fever. This phase usually lasts one week to 10 days, when the blisters dry up and fall off. In most cases, shingles lasts a few weeks, but some people can experience pain for months.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Shingles

There is no way to prevent shingles, but people can avoid getting chicken pox by being immunized with the vermicelli vaccine. People who have never had chicken pox should avoid contact with anyone who has the disease. Avoid contact with anyone with shingles because the fluid from the blisters is extremely contagious. Pregnant women, infants, children and anyone with immune deficiencies should not be in contact with anyone with chicken pox or shingles. Also, things like meditation, Yoga, Pilates, or any naturally calming practices will help keep shingles to a minimum as stress makes shingles worse. Try to keep stress and anxiety to a minimum, whatever works for you!

Personal Experience: Shingles “Natural Remedy” Skeptics

If you’ve ever had shingles before, you know the pain that can be associated with it. Both a cousin and a friend of mine came down with shingles and were both in serious enough pain to ask me for help. While one was very skeptic of “natural cures”, the other was right away willing to try my natural remedy. Needless to say, after making them my “Shingles Relief Spray” and advising them of some dietary adjustments, they are both believers and ask me for all kinds of natural cures and advice now.

Beneficial Dietary & Herbal Aids

  • L-Lysine is important for healing and for fighting the virus that causes shingles.
  • Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids aids in fighting the shingles virus.
  • Vitamin B Complex is needed for nerve health and to counteract deficiencies.
  • Zinc enhances immunity and protects against infection.
  • Calcium and Magnesium for nerve function and healing.
  • Garlic is excellent for building the immune system.
  • SAMe aids in reducing pain and inflammation.
  • Cayenne relieves pain and aids healing.
  • Lemon Balm – This lemon scented herb helps the body fight viruses.
  • Licorice – The licorice has virus-fighting ingredients that can inhibit the herpes simplex virus. It appears to interfere with the growth of the virus. It also fights inflammation and can be used instead of products containing cortisone without the side effects. Taken internally, it can be used as a tea and is often blended with other herbs for taste. Do not take for longer than 6 weeks at a time, and do not take licorice if you have high blood pressure or a history of heart disease.
  • Alfalfa and Dandelion promotes healing.
  • Baikal Skullcap This is an herb that has been used since ancient times in China. It fights bacteria and infections, so it is helpful in treating shingles as well as many other conditions. Used topically, you can make a paste using the ground root mixed with water. Apply the paste to the affected areas as needed.
  • Astragalus Root and Echinacea boosts immune function.
  • Bi phaya yaw (Clinacanthus nutans)- an herb used in traditional Thai medicine, has been shown in clinical studies to shorten the time it takes to recover from shingles in some cases. It is applied in cream form.
  • Olive leaf extract aids in fighting the virus of shingles. Eat plenty of foods that contain vitamin B6, including bananas, nuts, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
  • A combination of oat straw, St. John’s wort, and skullcap helps to reduce stress and itching. Mix equal amounts of oat straw, St. John’s wort, and skullcap tinctures together, and take one teaspoon of this mixture four times daily.

Essential Oil Recipe Blends & Dilutions for Energy Work; Clearing & Balancing the Chakras

If you’re interested in making your own essential oil blends, or just wondered what might go into specific recipes for energy work, read on, I have a real treat for you. This was originally written for YahooContributor back in ’09, but since they’ve shut down the site, it needed a home.

It includes:

Primer, “Rose Base” Recipe (used in many of the following recipes), Clearing Room Spray, Positive Energy Spray, Setting Up Boundaries or for Protection Blend, Asking for Spiritual Guidance Blend, Clearing the Aura After Energy Healing Work Blend, and a beautiful Facial Winter Spritzer.

None of the links in this article work, they are no longer linked to Yahoo as the site has been taken down.So here’s another of my orphaned articles I’ll share it with you here… I’m working on finding homes for the rest of them. 🙂

enjoy!!

 First, a primer, or a little refresher course-

 About Dilution of Essential Oils:

Almost all pure essential oils should be used diluted (mixed with a carrier such as sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, etc.), especially if you will be using them on the skin. Remember that essential oils are extremely concentrated, as they include the whole spirit or “life blood” of the plant, flower, resin or root they originated from. Did you know that it takes 30 large roses to make 1 drop of rose oil, and 60,000 roses (about 180 lbs. of rose petals) to make 1 ounce of Rose oil? Now you know why it is so expensive!

Really, none of the essential oils should be applied neat (undiluted) with the exception of lavender or tea tree essential oils. And remember too, that they come from natural plants so some may be allergic to their properties. Please try a patch test before using any essential oil blend on your skin by applying 1 drop of diluted essential oil to the inside of your elbow, cover it with a band-aid and leave for 24 hours to check for allergic reaction.

Dilution Ratios for Blends and Essential Oil Recipes

Using the following ratios for your essential oil blends and recipes should keep you within the safe zone.

  • 60 drops e.o. / 1 oz. carrier = 10% dilution ( for room sprays, aromatic spritzers, + inhalers)
  • 30 drops of e.o. (like rose, jasmine, neroli, sandalwood, etc.) to 1 oz carrier such as Fractionated Coconut Oil or Jojoba makes 5% dilution.
  • 20 drops e.o. / 1 oz = 3% dilution.
  • 15 drops essential oils / 1 oz of carrier is called a 2.5% “normal” dilution.
  • 9 drops essential oils / 1 oz of carrier would constitute a “light dilution”, also called a 1.5% dilution.
  • 6 drops e.o. / 1 oz carrier is 1% dilution
  • FOR INFANTS or SMALL CHILDREN, ELDERLY or PREGNANT use 3-6 drops e.o.  / 1 oz of carrier for a  0.5-1% dilution
  • There’s about 600 total drops in 1 fluid ounce if you want to figure out a different dilution percentage.

Body sprays can handle up to 60 drops of e.o. per every 4 ounces of carrier, and for room sprays, up to 100 drops per every 4 ounces of water (or carrier) is the normal range .

 ON to the good stuff!!

Extending Expensive Essential Oils and “Rose Base” Recipe:

Creating a 5% or 10% dilution is also a great way to extend the life of the more expensive oils (like rose, sandalwood, jasmine or neroli). For example, to make a “rose base” add 30 drops of rose otto to 1 ounce of fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil –because of their little to no scent and long lasting properties – use this as your “scented base” for the recipes calling for rose.

If you have a really nice rose otto or rose absolute use this method to really open up the scent, as right out of the bottle rose absolute is quite overpowering and bombards the senses. With most essential oils it seems the more they are diluted, the more delicate the aroma, allowing the scent to fully open and be appreciated for all its attributes. Essential oils like lemon or lavender do not need to be stored this way, as they are light enough to begin with, so just keep them in the dark bottles they came in, and store in a cool and dark place.

For Energy Work use this Cleansing and Clearing Blend:

  • 25 drops of Lavender,
  • 20 drops of Rosemary,
  • 20 drops of Lemon,
  • 15 drops of Cedarwood (Atlas),
  • 5 drops of Eucalyptus,
  • 5 drops of Juniper,
  • 5 drops of Pine, and
  • 5 drops of “rose base”
  • in 4 ounces of purified water

Makes a lovely room or “space-clearing” spray, or use a few drops of the undiluted blend in a diffuser.

Use a “normal” or “light” dilution if using as a body spray. Make sure to always shake well before each use.

MORE RECIPES:

Positive Energy Spray:

  • 4 ounces of purified (or distilled) water
  • 10 drops of “Rose base”,
  • 10 drops of cedarwood (Atlas),
  • 7 drops of vetiver,
  • 7 drops rosewood ,
  • 9 drops of lavender,
  • 6 drops “neroli base”,
  • 12 drops pink grapefruit,
  • 12 drops of orange,
  • 12 drops of tangerine,
  • 8 drops of lemon,
  • 8 drops of bergamot (BF–bergaptene free)

Shake well and use as a room spray. For a body spray, use about 45-60 drops of this blend and add it to 4 ounces of distilled or purified water, shake well each time before use.

Cleansing and Positive Energy Combination Spray:

To cleanse the space and bring positive energy at the same time, you might want to try one of these combinations:

  • 30 drops Pink Grapefruit,
  • 25 drops Lemon,
  • 25 drops Tangerine, and
  • 20 drops Lavender
  • with 4 ounces purified water.

Or

  • 35 drops Cedarwood (Atlas),
  • 35 drops Grapefruit,
  • 20 drops of Orange, and
  • 10 drops “rose base”
  • added to 4 ounces of purified water.

Always shake well before using.

Setting up Boundaries or Protection blend:

You might want to use this blend to aid in protecting your space from negativity or bad energy:

  • 1 drop fennel,
  • 3 drops of rosemary,
  • 3 drops of juniper,
  • 8 drops of lemon,
  • 2 drops of hyssop and
  • 3 drops of vetiver
  • diluted into 1-4 ounces of carrier

You can use a few drops of this blend for an anointing oil, or use a few drops of the blend diluted in 4 ounces of purified water as a spray.

Asking for Spiritual Guidance blend:

Add 1 drop of the following blend placed on the “third eye” chakra before meditation or asking for spiritual guidance:

  • 7 drops of cedarwood (Atlas),
  • 3 drops “neroli base”,
  • 3 drops of “rose base”,
  • 2 drops of jasmine,
  • 1 tiny drop of angelica (pre-diluted at in a carrier as angelica is VERY strong),
  • 1 drop of both German and Roman chamomiles,
  • 7 drops of lavender,
  • 4 drops of geranium,
  • 1 drop of cistus (pre-diluted in a carrier) and
  • 4 drops of frankincense (pre-diluted in a carrier)

blended into 1 ounce of jojoba, sweet almond, grapeseed, or unscented coconut oil,

this may also be added to 2 ounces of purified water to make a spray if you’d rather not place anointing blend directly on skin.

To clear the Aura after Energy Healing work;

It is best to use a drop of rose base diluted in purified water sprayed around you, or one drop of rose base diluted in a carrier oil as an anointing oil to clear the aura, though, the clearing spray works fine too.

Facial Spritzer Winter Recipe:

A nice winter facial spritzer for almost all skin types

  • 3 drops of the “rose base”
  • and 3 drops of the “neroli base”
  • ( no more than 10 drops total maximum)

added to 4 ounces of one of the following;

  • purified water,
  • rose,lavender or neroli hydrosols,
  • or even distilled water.

My favorite facial spritzer in the winter is;

  • 4 oz. of neroli hydrosol,
  • 4 drops of “neroli base” (you can also use a 3% dilution for any of the “base” recipes such as “rose base” or “neroli base” ),
  • 2 drops of geranium,
  • 2 drops of sandalwood and
  • 2 drops of bergamot; but make sure the bergamot is bergaptene free (or bf). Bergaptene content in regular bergamot causes photosensitivity and since the bergaptene has been removed in this type, it allows it to be used in skin and hair care formulations without worrying about sun exposure after use.

Mix together the essential oils and hydrosols in a dark glass or PET plastic (PET is a type of plastic that can withstand essential oils) spray bottle, shake well before each use, and spray over face anytime for a nice moisturizing spritz.

Rose Geranium Essential Oil

Rose Geranium

Pelargonium roseum is not only beautiful, but happens to be one of the most useful, and wonderful essential oils we have. As you’ll soon see, it’s uses are many and it’s beauty is more than skin deep.

Rose Geranium, or Geranium Rose-

AuraCacia has this to say about Geranium essential oil:

Pelargonium graveolens, the rose-scented geranium, belongs to the same plant genus as the popular red-flowered window box geranium. Geraniums are native to arid areas of South Africa’s Cape Province. The plant is highly drought resistant, thanks to its semi-succulent, water-conserving stems and leaves.

The essential oil in rose geranium leaves has constituents — geraniol, linalol and citronellol — that are also present in rose oil. It’s not surprising that the aroma of geranium’s fragrance resembles that of rose with a musty, minty-green undertone.

Geranium oil has been described as a natural perfume complete unto itself. It’s often used to scent soaps and detergents because, unlike many other essential oils, rose geranium’s aroma profile is not readily affected by the alkaline nature of soap products.

Rose geranium varies much across strains and distillations, in part because the plant is greatly influenced by the climate and soil in which it grows. Geranium oil can range from very sweet and rosy to musty, minty and green. One type of geranium oil, known as Bourbon, has established itself as a premium perfume oil. Bourbon geranium is cultivated and distilled exclusively on the island of Reunion in the Indian ocean. The environment of Reunion has produced a strain of geranium with a very rich, rosy aroma. Perfumers prefer to work with Bourbon oil because it blends well with a wide array of very different oils including clove, sandalwood and lavender.

The main geranium oil-producing regions of the world are found on the African continent, Russia, China and Reunion. Russian and Chinese oils tend to have a greener, fresh-rosy aroma while Egyptian and Reunion oils tend to be heavier and darker.

Geranium oil is distilled from the above-ground parts of the plant. Most of the essential oil glands are found in its leaves. After cutting, the plants are partially dried to increase the yield of oil. That way there’s less water to be vaporized and extracted from the plant material during the distillation.

Popular during the Victorian era, rose geranium was often kept potted in parlors were a fresh sprig was always available to revive the senses. The fresh leaves were also offered in finger bowls at formal dining tables.

Today, geranium is an indispensable aromatherapy oil. It’s one of the best skincare oils, offering relief from congested, oily and dry skin. On an emotional level, geranium promotes stability and balance.

RECIPE for

Sunshine Smiles Aromatherapy Recipe

Ingredients

  • 10 drops Bergamot essential oil
  • 10 drops Grapefruit essential oil

  • 5 drops Rose Geranium essential oil
  • 3 drops Ylang ylang extra essential oil
  • 3 drops Spruce essential oil (or sandalwood for more calming)

Combine all the ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle. Store it in a cool, dark place (not your bathroom – it’s too warm and humid.)

Handy Hint: This aromatherapy bath oil is excellent for acne. To boost its acne-fighting powers, use grapeseed oil as the carrier oil (it’s astringent – helps tighten pores and reduce oil production.)

Description

In a therapeutic blend bringing together Chinese Medicine, reflexology, and cranial sacral therapy, massage therapist Deborah Eidosn shows how essential oils and Bach Flower Remedies can be used to identify and free up emotional blockages which may be causing you problems.Eidson explains that all chakras have a location associated with organs, as well as a sound, color, and element. Giving a good massage can involve stimulating meridians and meridian points, finding the location of blocked energy, and then working with oils to affect change.
