When I was a child, the rest of my family had chicken pox. I was spared because I was away from home most of time attending school. I only came home to sleep at nights and since my room was away from my other brothers and sisters, I had little contact with them.
Years later, after I was married, my son had an attack of the chicken pox when he was 5 years old. I eventually had an attack of chicken pox too since I was home with him performing fatherly duties. I developed burning itching pains all over my body coupled with a strong fever that had me bed ridden for a few days. Within a week, my burning sensations and fever were gone but my body started to experience strange tingling sensations in localized areas of my body.
This tingling effect would not go away until a Financial Director colleague asked why I was away from work. I related my problems to him and he told me that I had shingles. He advised me to leave work immediately and buy a gallon of 100% Pure Florida orange Juice. He said that I should drink two glasses of the juice as soon as I got it. He advised me that I should drink 2 glasses every two hours thereafter until the juice was finished. Later, the fruit basket gifts of oranges my brother delivered to my home served me well also.
I knew that I had the chicken pox virus but the strange sensations on my chest area muscles puzzled me. My colleague also told me that chicken pox could kill adults if they were not exposed to the virus as children. I followed his instructions and drank the juice as he directed and by the next morning the tingling sensations were gone. I finished drinking the gallon of orange juice by the next day.
Later, I found out that I had blisters on some parts of my body but these blisters could hardly be noticed. My friend and colleague said that I was lucky because the blisters could have been worse if I had delayed the drinking of the orange juice. From the feedback he gave me I understood that I could have had many more blisters and scars. I was thankful that my skin condition was not bad.
Further research led me to learn that many people who do not act in a timely manner to take the necessary steps for treating chicken pox can have hundreds or even thousands of ugly scars all over their bodies. These scars do not go away. They remain with you for life. I have seen many adults who were attacked by chicken pox have ugly scars all over their faces.
So, if you are attacked by chicken pox get yourself some orange juice and drink plenty of it. I learned that the high content of Vitamin C, coupled with other vitally necessary nutrients in oranges were responsible for eliminating the strange tingling sensations.
There are other recommended natural remedies for shingles. One of these is to eat a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables regularly to build a healthy immune system. You should also include vitamin-B12 in your diet. An alternative would be to take vitamin supplements as a secondary source. Now is the time to get your fruit basket gifts delivered to your favorite person to promote a healthier lifestyle.
