Shingles (Herpes Zoster)

Submitted 16-Feb-11 by

Ben Manalo, Client, Chicago

Keywords: shingles

Two weeks ago I came down with a case of shingles. The rash & blister pattern started on the left side of my chest, traveled to my left armpit and down the inside of my arm. There was also a small patch on my left shoulder blade area. I'd heard stories of how uncomfortable shingles can be - itchiness that kept you awake...shooting pains from the virus affecting the nerves in the area. But instead of going to see a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, I decided to try taking care of it myself by using BodyTalk Access.

Although I don't have anything to compare it to, from reading about shingles on websites for the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) & the Mayo Clinic and seeing some of the images of shingles on the web, my experience was definitely not typical. I applied the Access protocol every 2-3 hours from the time I woke up 'til the time I went to bed. Sometimes that wasn't always possible, so I just did it when I could. I also did the Cortices technique in between. This continued for about 10 days. During that time the itchiness was never unbearable & I had very little trouble sleeping. And even though there were some shooting pains, I wouldn't say they were "painful" at all. In fact on a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being excruciating or almost unbearable), I'd say the itchiness & discomfort never went above 2. I never had an uncontrollable urge to scratch & never took any medication for itchiness or discomfort. Also, the rash & blister pattern never became a continuous patch. It was scattered with large gaps between.

The whole thing seemed to progress very quickly and in less than 12 days of doing Access & Cortices multiple times daily, the rash & blisters disappeared and the scabs came off.
