While the shingles are now gone, she is still left with shooting pain in her left side.
Dear Terry, “In March of 2013, my mom had shingles. While the shingles are now gone, she is still left with shooting pain in her left side. We have tried around 20 different things plus a number of supplements, steroids shots, acupuncture, massage therapy, pain management and nothing is helping her. Do you have any suggestions?” — Shirley S., St. Louis, MO
Dear Shirley, I’m sorry to hear about your mom’s ongoing ordeal.
When it comes to addressing her pain, I would recommend these four ingredients: highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to help get your mother comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking these four ingredients three times daily.
I believe she would also benefit greatly by taking a combination of nutrients including B vitamins, biotin, alpha lipoic acid, chromium, zinc, and boswellia. B vitamins (B1-B3, B6, B12, Folate, and Pantothenic Acid) help nerves function better, delay damage to nerves, and reduce the frequency and intensity of pain symptoms. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) can boost levels of glutathione, one of the body’s natural antioxidants, which helps protect delicate nerves from oxidative damage. Current research also shows that ALA can help to reduce the pain and tingling symptoms. Extremely effective as an antioxidant, zinc helps to promote tissue and wound healing. I recommend taking these ingredients three times daily.
