Vitamin C Outperforms The Shingles Vaccine!
Vitamin C is known to strengthen the body’s immune system. As reported by Natural Health 365, we don’t know of any virus that isn’t scared silly of the nutrient.
Why is that important? Well, shingles is much more likely to occur in individuals that have a weakened immune system.
Vaccines try – and fail – to solve this; in clinical trials, the leading shingles vaccine only worked in 51% of all patients.
That’s pretty abysmal, especially when you consider the side effects of that vaccine, which include:
Joint and muscle pain
Compare this to vitamin C, which has been shown in studies to reduce the incidence and severity of diseases like shingles for just about all patients with minimal side effects.
The vitamin is even effective when the virus has already begun to act up.
Vitamin C and Shingles Treatment
In the 1940s, a doctor by the name of Frederick Klenner discovered something remarkable about vitamin C.
It all began when he gave shingles patients 2,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin C via injection every 12 hours. He also had his patients drink 1,000 mg of vitamin C in fruit juice.
Within two hours, 7 of Dr. Klenner’s 8 patients reported total pain relief. Within a mere 72 hours, each patient’s blisters were healed. Keep in mind that this condition is supposed to be debilitating and last between 3 to 5 weeks.
Also keep in mind that the only medical industry-approved ‘solutions’ for people with existing shingles are painkillers and antibiotics – in other words, symptom management as opposed to treatment.
