Just when you thought chickenpox was gone forever, it comes back with a vengeance. This vengeance is called shingles. Shingles occurs when the herpes zoster virus, the virus you are infected with once you get the chickenpox, is reactivated many years later.

The result? Painful, burning red rashes and blisters on your skin, mainly along your body’s nerve pathways.

Shingles usually makes its presence known in the elderly, (in those over 60 years of age,) but at this point, if you’ve already had the chickenpox, you’re probably pretty concerned and would like to know a remedy for shingles, or better yet, a prevention method.

”I thought I got over the chickenpox!”


You did, kind of. You certainly don’t have a bunch of itchy red spots on your skin anymore. But, the virus never fully clears from the body; it just remains dormant in your nerve tissues. Physical and emotional stresses that weaken the body’s immune system trigger the virus back into action, causing it to spread along the nerve fibers.

Early symptoms of shingles include a burning or tingling pain, or sometimes a numbness or itch on one particular location of the body. After a few days, a rash will develop.

How to Deal With Shingles the Natural Way

Homeopathy, a medical practice based on the belief that the body has the power to heal itself, has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment and cure of both chickenpox and shingles. Here are four homeopathic remedies to help this virus stay away for good. Always consult your health practitioner before trying any of these remedies.

Ranunculus bulbosus

For the shingles rash that is bluish in color, on the ribcage, deeply inflamed and producing stabbing pains, ranunculus bulbosus is a homeopathic remedy worth trying. Ranunculus bulbosus, better known as bulbous buttercup, is a plant often used to treat skin diseases, arthritis, gout, nerve pain, the flu and meningitis.

This homeopathic remedy should not be used on anyone breastfeeding or pregnant.


Rhus tox

This plant is a common homeopathic remedy for treating shingles. It is used to relieve the itching and pain that shingles causes. Rhus tox is used for rashes that consist of small, red fluid-filled vesicles or blisters that break when scratched. Hot baths and warm compresses can bring temporary relief to the shingles discomfort as well.

Iris versicolor

Also known as blue flag, this plant is used when the shingles rash is worse on the right side of the abdomen and under the right arm. Those suffering from stomach problems as a result of shingles can benefit greatly from this homeopathic treatment.

Arsenicum album


This homeopathic treatment is best for blister pains that are relieved by heat and tend to be worse at night. This type of shingles can make the sufferer restless, anxious, thirsty for cold drinks and afraid to be alone.

Once again, be sure to consult your health practitioner and/or homeopathic doctor before using any of these remedies to ensure that they are appropriate for your specific condition.
