Twenty out of every 100 persons will get Shingles in their lifetime. Most get it only once, however, four out of every 100 persons will have it more than once. Herpes Zoster, or Shingles, is the reactivation of the Varicella Zoster virus, the same virus responsible for chicken pox. Commonly thought to only affect those over fifty, the debilitating pain of Shingles can strike anyone at any age. Erupting along the affected nerves lesions can happen anywhere on the body, causing the nerve endings to send signals to the brain that are interpreted as severe pain, itching and burning. At 26, I am all too familiar with the pain created by Shingles.

I have been working for Dr Andrea McCreery at Life Sources® Inc for a little under a year. Instantly I took a strong interest in the field of Alternative Health. Dr McCreery was kind enough to start teaching me the endless value behind Vital Hematology and Targeted Nutritional Intervention™, her specialties. The most effective way to learn is to do, so we began getting my body and mind in shape by taking samples of my own blood and examining them under the microscope. Feeling under the weather one day, I had Dr Andrea take a ‘peek under the hood’. She found what are called pleomorphic bacteria, a clue that something was going awry within my body! Five days later I was bed ridden with an intense burning sensation across my skin, a high fever and intense fatigue. I was stubborn and refused to go to my medical Doctor, or take Dr Andrea’s advice of using Immuzyme®, Life Sources® Enzyme Energy Formula and OPC-165®’s. However, once a rash appeared I recognized something was wrong, and my stubbornness subsided. A test at my medical Doctor diagnosed me with Shingles. I went home with an anti-viral regimen, opiate painkillers and no real solution for my pain.

I always associated Immuzyme® with our older clientele suffering from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and even MS. Desperation motivated by pain brought me to put assumptions aside and take Immuzyme®. To my surprise, one day after starting Immuzyme® and OPC-165®’s my rash started healing at a much faster pace, and I could do simple tasks like getting dressed, without the debilitating pain caused by the nerve firings.

Proteolytic Anti-Inflammatory Enzymes (Immuzyme®) for those suffering from Shingles is nothing new! Prior to pharmaceutical anti-viral medications, such as acyclovir, Proteolytic Enzyme preparations, like Immuzyme®, were used effectively as treatment for Shingles. In a double blind, controlled, multi-center trial, patients were given either acyclovir or an Enzyme Preparation comparable to Life Sources® Immuzyme®. The study concluded that the Enzyme preparation was just as effective as the anti-viral acyclovir.

Weeks had passed and my rash had subsided, but my pain continued. Made bearable with Immuzyme®, the continued pain I was, and still am suffering from, is called Post-herpetic Neuralgia. PHN is the most common side effect of Shingles, and can go on for days, weeks or years after the rash has dissipated.

After the last visit with my medical Doctor I decided to go full bore with a Life Sources® Protocol. And I am so thankful I did! Dr Andrea and I decided to take another sneak peek at my blood, and it was not pretty. Yeast, parasites, bacteria and liver stress all caused by the pharmaceutical anti-viral have made for quite a ‘mopping-up’. I was found to be B-12 deficient and loaded with heavy metal as well as Anemic. And I mustn’t forget the excessive amount of Mycoplasmas! Immuzyme®, OPC-165®’s, Forever Young and Argentyn 23 have been part of my daily routine for two weeks now; the vast improvement felt across my entire body is impossible to express in writing. Yes, I still have some mild pain. But the fact of the matter, it’s mild! I am getting healthier and able to cope with the pain because of the amazing Life Sources® products. My only regret with the Life Sources® protocol is not starting sooner!
