I have found the cayenne is a key to killing the virus. We know the virus runs along the nerve. My favorite transport is DMSO. I believe the cayenne acts to “cauterize” the virus. However cayenne works, it kills the virus. Because you have to get it down to the nerve, DMSO is a great solvent as well as an anti-oxident and carrier. (Thus, make sure your hands are clean and the area of application is clean when you use DMSO. ) By the way, the younger shingles sufferer will be able to overcome shingles better than the older because the immune system can fight off the virus better.
To keep the cayenne from burning the skin I also add natural vitamin E. This must be the natural d-alpha tocopherol and not the synthetic E. Then I add any other herbal to “thicken” the mixture to make into a paste if needed. The paste should be very moist but not drippy.
I also add a dozen drops of colloidal silver to make sure the virus is killed.
So my anti shingles paste formula sufficent for two applications, one on day one, then skipping a day use a second time is as follows:
- 10 capsules of cayenne
- 10 capsules of natural vitamin E
- 20 drops of colloidal silver
- 20 drops of DMSO
Any herbal/ corn meal etc to make the liquid more paste like as needed. Put into a bowl and mix until paste like.
Apply on top of affected areas. Let dry until the paste has hardened and is flaking off the skin. I even suggest if applied at night, after drying, put on a tea shirt and just let the paste fully incorporate overnight. Shower off in the morning. You will see the blisters have changed color from a bright red to a rust color… Part of the healing process. Even if the “blisters”are healed over, apply over sensitive spots. This will work to kill the virus even after months where the skin is healed back but pain remains. The pain is there because the virus still lives. This has worked so well… I would say 40 times… I am not a doctor of course, but when the regular medical community fails sometimes logical remedies work.
I also recommend that if one really wants to help the whole system fight the virus, take the cayenne orally, with food to avoid too much stomach burn, along with the natural vitamin E. Do this for a month. (I take these two as part of my own nutrient formula every day… 800 iu of the E and one capsule of cayenne.)
And so much of what is on this wonderful website is good science and good logic. Oh, of course be very careful if applying this formula to the face if the shingles are there; keep out of eyes.
