Q. Dear Terry, “I dislocated my shoulder almost a year ago, but my shoulder still doesn’t feel the same. I did everything my doctor told me to during my recovery. I’m wondering if there’s anything natural that can help my recovery?” — Jake T., Sandy Springs, GA

Shingles are caused by a virus that, in healthy people, lies dormant and inactive in the nervous system. Neuropathy is a disorder of the nervous system, which then causes burning and painful feet, numbing and tingling of the extremities or both. While not life threatening, it can cause a great deal of misery.
I’ve heard more than one doctor claim there is no cure for neuropathy or shingles. After watching TV commercials with their very dramatized characters pushing vaccines for shingles, which irritates me to no end, you would think there is nothing you can do with a natural alternative.
But basically, the nervous system is dependent on a number of nutritional factors which is not found in the American diet. L-methylfolate, L-methylcobalamin, P-5-P, thiamin, chromium, biotin, and lipoic acid are some of the most critical nutrients to support the nervous system.
When supported properly with these nutrients, it significantly reduces the effects of neuropathy and the outbreak of shingles. Maintaining a healthy balance of these nutrients will, in a few short weeks, provide powerful support to the nervous system.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
In Scripture a man came to Jesus and said, “My little daughter is very sick. She is close to death. Will You come to my home and pray for her?” Jesus agreed. But along the way, He kept getting stopped, one interruption after another. Finally, word came back to Him saying, “No need to come. You’ve waited too late. The little girl has died.”
The people were upset and very distraught. But Jesus said to them in Luke 8:50 “Don’t be afraid. If you will only believe, the little girl will be well.” Notice the phrase, “Only believe.” Jesus went to the home, laid hands on the little girl, and she came back to life.
Are you facing a situation that seems impossible? In the natural, you don’t see how you can get well, or how you can overcome the addiction, or how your family can ever be restored. God is saying to you what He said to them, “If you will only believe, I will turn the situation around. If you only believe, breakthroughs are headed your way!”
