Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. LIST OF CONDITIONS
Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which also causes chickenpox. It occurs in people who have had chickenpox and represents a reactivation of the dormant virus. The disease generally affects the elderly, although it occasionally occurs in younger and/or immuno-deficient individuals.
The first sign is usually a tingling feeling, itchiness, or stabbing pain on the skin. After a few days, a rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots on the side of the trunk or face. The shingles rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters that begin to dry out and crust over within several days. When the shingles is at its peak, symptoms can range from mild itching to extreme and intense pain.
Contact with a person with shingles may cause chickenpox (but not shingles) in someone who has never had chickenpox before.
Although shingles can be very painful and itchy, it is not generally dangerous to healthy individuals and it usually resolves without complications. The rash and pain usually go away within 3 to 5 weeks. Sometimes serious effects including partial facial paralysis (usually temporary), ear damage, or encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) may occur. Persons with shingles on the upper half of the face should seek medical attention immediately as the virus may cause serious damage to the eyes. Most people who have shingles have only one bout with the disease in their lifetime. However, individuals with impaired immune systems, i.e., people with AIDS or cancer, may suffer repeated episodes.
Antiviral Drugs May Have Side Effects
Although antibiotics are not effective at fighting a viral infection various antiviral drugs are available by prescription. As with all such drugs there is the possibility of adverse side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or headache.
How Does the Immune System fight Shingles?
The immune system is a body wide network of cells and organs that has evolved to defend the body against attacks by foreign entities such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses.
About Mesosilver All Natural Colloidal Silver

The particles are of the smallest size, .65 nanometers, and it's this high quality and small size combined with being highly concentrated that makes it the most effective colloidal silver product on the market. Further, Mesosilver has no drug interactions, meaning it will not interfere with any medications you may currently be taking. It also has no side effects reported from its many users. (Of course, do not take Mesosilver if you are allergic to silver). Mesosilver works to support a healthy immune system function. Drug claims cannot be made for Mesosilver.

However, testimonial reports from customers suggest that Mesosilver is an effective supplement to aide in maintaining good health.
Method of Use:
To help maintain a healthy immune system take Mesosilver orally.
Note: Dosages which people recommend for colloidal silver vary since often a small dose is effective while large doses are not harmful. With our product, very small doses are effective since concentration of particles is very high and particle size is very low. The recommended dosage is one tablespoon 4 times a day. At a dosage of 4 tablespoons per day 1 bottle will last 4 days, 4 bottles will last 17 days and, 10 bottles will last 6 weeks.
"I had emailed you over a year ago telling you how skeptical I was over what some related to me what was a " snake oil treatment " for shingles, and how I agreed to try your colloidal silver for no other reason than to prove to my wife that this would just be another useless " tonic " like some of the other remedies suggested by well meaning friends. So I did take internally and topical the silver and not only did I discover my shingles disappeared but also the horrible congestion in my throat which caused me to nearly constantly clear my throat." - Robert Weaver, Las Vegas, NV
"An elderly lady from my church . . . called me last night to tell me that the painful shingles on her face had completely healed! She was so excited! So am I... It really makes my day to know that once again Colloidal Silver wins and misery loses!" - Marsha
"I started taking colloidal silver when I had shingles. The hospital said nothing could be done but put me in the hospital with iv's. My husband found colloidal silver on the internet, and what a blessing. Immediately it started receding from under the eye to the throat. I also took it for 6 months. Then I discovered other benefits, acne, pneumonia, fungus, warts, colds, flu, memory etc." - Mary Shelton, Washington
