Vaccination Truth


It’s not that doctors don’t know the truth – they are not ALLOWED to know it. To do so marks the end of their career – and for many of late, their very lives. As a former nurse, researcher, writer and natural health practitioner, my dealings with vaccination went far deeper than most medical experts could claim – personally and professionally. This post was triggered by an episode of one of my favourite TV series – Bramwell…

If you get to read the original history of vaccination, it soon becomes more evident that it was a political stunt and little to do with results. The UK show Bramwell – episode 3.9 – dealt with this very thing.

It was validating but also frustrating that this has been known for so long – yet even our most ‘learned’ experts are too dense (or well paid) to understand or work out for themselves.

This is well worth the watch – as in really worth it. If you link it to the heartbreaking Raggedy-Ann story in the same era, it’s a stark in-yo-face dose of reality!

Most of all, Bramwell is possibly the BIGGEST anti-establishment, non-conformist show ever – fought racism, sexism, pædophilia, slavery, child slavery, workplace conditions, poverty – and spat in the face of governments and gentry of the time. Exactly what someone like me needs in her corner.

This particular episode showed right from the start, most intellects were staunchly opposed to immunisation – or innoculation, as it began its life. Money and politics won the day, not improved health – sanitation was the number one factor in our health ‘change’ – and improved diet – but don’t let those little unimportant factors sway a trillion dollar industry…

So, what is the story behind Raggedy-Ann I hear you say… As with modern day disease such as ebola and HIV – with more opposition from the experience, research and educated corner than support, it’s still money and politics winning the day. Life – the very thing they are meant to be defending in accordance with the Hippocratic oath, is expendable. A eugenic society – far from a conspiracy theory, is alive, well and very successful. Your child’s life means little to that noble lab-coated science boffin – and even less to the fat-cat pharma reps. Doctors, nurses and untrained reps make brilliant puppets.

So by now you are asking – ‘where is the hard core scientific proof?’ Believe it or not – there is possibly more scientific proof in existence than that which supposedly proves otherwise. There are more legal experts with cold hard knowledge of what goes on out of the media glare. The only difference? One has money – the other goes begging. YOU are the only one who has a say over your body – not that hard-nose behind the desk denying dangers despite even vaccine package inserts clearly stating them.

And in 2016, De Niro et al are in hot water for daring to share the movie Vaxxed. But this time, they have the attention of the world. I for one think that could be a good thing. The attention is already having a better effect than enforced vaccination antics of late.

And what of that little R word – RIGHTS ???

Most doctors will not officially file your report of vaccine injury – hence the 1 in a million catch cry from any health professional who does not care enough about your child’s health (or your rights). Behind the scenes (not officially reported) stats sit at less than 1 in 100. Then comes the usual ‘Oh but they are just minor cases’ – yet those official reports only record minor cases. All the SIDS, SBS and so forth does not go on record. And rather than listen to the conscience that was consumed prior to the fat GP paycheques, they dismiss any fearful parent’s questions with ‘there are no definitive studies that prove it is caused by vaccine’ – what, even if 5 seconds before that shot, even you said it was the healthiest baby you had seen? Even if in doubt, why push something SO risky, so capable of taking health – and life – why not investigate instead of turning your back?

Well, YOU can report – don’t leave it up to your doctor. Take the forms in – demand they are signed or you will contact a current affairs and news shows. You will sue personally for negligence – did your doctor advise of the actual ingredients? Aborted human fœtus, questionable chemicals, known allergens? Will they sign THIS form that advises you 100% that your child will not be damaged – in the event of said damage, your doctor will agree to be 100% liable?

Download here – No doctor will sign this – try it – please let me know if your doctor signs – I am yet to hear of a single signature.

And what of the official vaccine report of your child’s injury – did you ask your doctor if it was done? Chances are it was not – ask them to sign this as proof your child was injured – Ask your doctor to sign this as well

And then we come to what YOU can do – this page has relevant links – YOU make an official report. Let’s get those stats on a more even playing field before it’s too late –

How to report adverse events (your doctor wont!)

Call it what you like – chest, box, cupboard, box-under-the-bed, bathroom cabinet or some of our more humorous friends, ‘stash’..

Whatever your preferred name, every home, even if you live in a bus or out of your car – needs a dedicated health care/management dispensary. This can include a mix of every modality on earth – basically, all of the true, tried and tested first aid, creams, potions and solutions your family cannot live without.


So, how do you establish a safe, effective medicine chest in your own home? To go onto a pharmacy or even discount supermarket and set up a good dispensary would cost you hundreds of dollars. One of the reasons I set up an account with iHerb, which now allows my network to not only get discounts on everything but also an extra $10 off at checkout by ensuring my coupon code of LSH273 appears before payment.

Simply go via my link here and set up a free, no pressure account to order what you need, as you need it.

  • Basic first aid –
  • Storage
  • Bandages (clean, cotton gauze)
  • Swabs (clean cotton gauze or cotton wool)
  • Disinfectants (herbal, non toxic)
  • Creams (pawpaw, hypericum, etc)
  • Extra assortment of little handy first aiders (pen torch, sting/splinter removers, forceps, scissors, ice/heat packs, etc)
  • Pharmaceuticals (mild analgesia, electrolytes, etc)
  • Tissue salts – by far, the most effective first aid kit in the world – each simplex – along with a guide booklet –

Mag Phos, Silicea, Nat Mur, Nat Sulph, Nat Phos, Calc Fluor, Calc Phos, Calc Sulph, Kali Mur, Kali Phos, Kali Sulph, Ferrum Phos – I guarantee every single health issue on the planet can be aided by use of one or more of these remedies. I have seen true miracles happen even in emergencies, in transit to hospital and when geographical location prevented us seeking medical assistance.

By using this basic kit, I can guarantee that your family’s health will be much better off. In fact, thousands of families now follow these basic guidelines and rarely need medical attention.

Of course, discretion is required, but in most cases, a well equipped home medicine chest is the best protection your family can have to ensure you do not lean heavily on our health system or need frequent trips to the local clinic. It’s not luck, it’s effective, common sense.

As for a HOME HEALTH DISPENSARY, don’t set up a home without it. You can also find an alternative first aid kit suggestions on the Chrysalis homeopathic site on the ailment list page.

Changes to this site – including recommendations

Many changes are afoot for this page. A full name change is necessary since the recent interest in not just the name Chrysalis Health but Chrysalis Integrated/Integrative, Chrysalis Homoeopathics, Chrysalis Naturals and so on. For a word that was nowhere to be found when I began, it is now one of the most used/misused words in natural health care. Some I am fine with as they are truly noble groups but seeing others not only use my name but imagery, even my work, I need to distance myself. So if you notice the URL/domain changes, don’t panic.

Secondly, after a very disappointing turn of events, I am no longer involved with either Neways or Sisel. I have found a great company that not only provides comparable, better priced and ethical alternatives but all vegan, and am in the process of adding all the recommendations to his blog – along with a PDF with all necessary links.

Thanks for your patience!

Cellulite – vanity or dangerous health issue warning?

Cellulite – is it a vanity thing or a health issue? It may be news to some that my natural therapy training took me to PhD studies quite a few years back now. Hardly surprising – considing I had to finish about 10 years of studies just to be considered even remotely close to a GP. Not that having ‘Doctor’ in front of my name would make me any more smart or worthy, but it’s the way society sees us – and sadly, some will only trust a naturopath if we have those two little letters in front of our name (or in my case, the 3 letters after my name). So, what was the subject of my thesis?


My research led me to the conclusion that cellulite, like ALL health symptoms, is not a stand-alone issue. In fact, even though it is predominantly a female issue, men can and do suffer from it (but just called fat) and yes, it is attached to a L-O-N-G chain of chronic and even terminal health issues and afflictions. It’s a sad thing that so many women I see have been told it’s just part of being a woman…

That’s not to say you rush off and panic about some hidden sickness. Basically, my research led me to realise that the lymphatic system is possibly the most overlooked and undervalued system of the body. Think about it – like a sewer, the lymphatic system is invisible. It is responsible for taking the waste away that your blood cannot flush into the intestines for excretion. Over time, the lines become gluggy and built up. Yes, we all know about swollen glands, but what about totally bunged up lymphatic pathways?


We should all be able to gently rub our skin with our fingertips without tiny nodules being palpable. Yet today, almost 100% of the patients I see, if I run my fingers over their skin, all display rugged little bumps and irregularities. Run your finger over a child’s skin and even if they are chubby, they will have incredibly smooth skin. Yet within 20 years it feels like a microscopic off-road track. It came as no surprise that almost 100% of case subjects had symptoms of chronic illness and obesity, even though very thin, young and seemingly healthy girls could also have the dimply demons.

Cellulite, as ugly as it is, is still ignored by the health profession – very frustrating from an iridology angle – a blocked lymphatic system is VERY visible… And considering it’s linked to lymphatic cancer, lymphadenitis, and even elephantiasis, I really can’t believe that it’s one of the many diseases that are addressed AFTER the fact – considering it’s so easy to address early on.


As one GP said to me, “Once you develop such a bad blockage of the lymphatics that you need a wheelchair, we have very good services and aids in place that could help with mobility.” So, for the thousands out there who simply seize up thanks to mismanagement, we would have to just accept an invalid life? Another GP once said to me ‘Just eat less calories’ – oh, so you mean less calories than the mostly salad and rawfood diet I was already eating? Less calories than the regular fasting I was doing? So much misinformation out there!


In the 90s, motivated as much by fear as I was by clinical frustration, I developed a two pronged program – internal drops and external body brushing and lotion which could loosen up what had become untouchable internally, by either the lymphatic or circulatory vessels. No, cellulite will do no more to your health than cause embarrassment, but it is very closely associated, out outward sign of true, chronic sickness – not quite causing it, but just may possibly be seen as a side effect of a wide range of sickness.

For example, why is it linked only to around 40% of obesity patients? Why is it so common in diabetes, but only in the abdomen? Why do those with leg cellulite display more heart disease symptoms than anyone else? Why is it very common in depression cases? Why do generations of unvaccinated and unmedicated families show no signs of lymphatic ill health? Of course, these are all serious issues that need addressing and simply removing cellulite wont get rid of the other symptoms. But for now, let’s look at removing the ugly side of these health issues. So, what do you do about it?


Around the time I did my thesis, a French company released (an unnamed) miracle treatment for cellulite that, thanks to overpricing, left my patients rushing to my clinic in droves to buy the treatment I had formulated for less than half the price. At the clinic I was practicing in at the time, we had wealthy ladies from Singapore actually fly to Perth just to buy this heavily promoted fad in bulk. What they spent on one trip could fund an entire village for a year – including their health problems – but such was the clever media coverage and advertising.

Meanwhile for my long story short, lots of success, lots of incredible results (including knock-on effects on other associated symptoms) and hand written thanks (yes, in the days before PCs and facebook) – but without financial support and a ton of attack thanks to the TGA and Australian medical association, I was forced to stop selling it. In short, and in the TGA’s own words, ‘If your product does not have the capacity to cause harm, we cannot approve or register it.’

There are treatments – it takes an alkaline diet and a safe transdermal cream to break down the blockages. Treat the entire body – remove toxic build up and fibrous networks of unnecessary gunk. Unfortunately my products are no longer on the market but I have found products that work just as well. So, what steps?

Get your body alkaline – information here – you wont get rid of cellulite without this one step. The diet is found here

It’s not just fat that causes cellulite – in fact one of the very first really bad cases I saw as a teen was with my ærobics instructor – she was as fit as anyone I knew but suffered badly, only in the thigh area – she ate healthy and played sport all day, but was addicted to bread and other processed carbs – a massive portion of cellulite is linked to  both carbohydrate and protein toxicity (ask why bodybuilders and athletes who overdo the protein and carb intake all end up suffering the worst from the visible effects) – your lymphatics become blocked and engorged, trapping other foreign particles that form the glue in your arteries – calcium, parasites, waste…


Gluten is one of the main causative criminals in cellulite formation – it’s amazing at just what a difference removing gluten from the diet makes. Massage is a great step, as is JET type therapy, so is manual lymphatic drainage. Colonic irrigation will begin a great flush but if you are not up for that, there is a great internal flush link below. At-home coffee enemas shock the liver and in turn, the lymphatics and are a great way to remove unnecessary fats. cupping therapy easily done at home will also bring rapid results. I am currently working with an orgone scientist to develop an exclusive cupping set to have even more harmonising benefits.

Hot lemon drinks in the morning – just fresh lemon juice in hot water, is the best start to a day you can have. Add a heaped teaspoon of coconut oil or eat that separately – it works like soap upon waste and fats in the body. Dry body brushing gently encourages your lymphatics and capillary tone and gets things moving.


But how do you flush your body? How do you stop it from happening again once you succeed?

Make sure you cut down on processed carbs – processed foods in general. Get healthy. Make chronic health issues history by making cellulite history. Eradicating this issue is by no means an easy one – but it really is that ‘simple’.

Medicine is yet to admit that ALL of our health issues, in all their complex forms, are intertwined. We need to think less of diagnoses and more of what our bodies are doing, then act accordingly. Do you have a sedentary lifestyle? Then just get moving! Swim, walk, breathe deeply, stretch and stop slouching. Stop wearing tight clothing as this was proven many years ago to be linked to circulatory damage that leads to lympœdema. I have seen women who were previously size 8 and exotic dancers, end up size 26 because, despite good healthy living habits, their circulation was cut by their clothing, over a long period of time.

HOMOEOPATHIC MIRACLES – more case histories.

Following on from my previous homoeopathic posts, I wanted to share some of the most amazing miracles I have experienced in my career. Most cases came to me only after modern medicine offered no hope. This is what makes them so memorable.

Poisoning 1 – I was once called out to a horse stud, where a number of horses had died from ingesting the core of the native balga (grass tree) plant, which is deadly to horses.


The farmer had called a vet who had proceeded to euthanaze the first horses as they had become paralyzed. I was really flying blind on this occasion (as I usually am in such cases) but decided to use a combination of homoeopathy’s best chemical detoxes – this was a blend of Nux Vomica, Belladonna and Lachesis, all in a 30c potency. I sat with the horses because I love them and my heart was breaking as I really doubted I could do much, and while I spoke to them and administered a few doses over the following few hours, I showed the farmer what to do – repeating dosage every hour as possible during the night, and remove the mobile horses from the paddock which had the chewed grass trees. The horses were in a bad way – unable to move more than their heads, with red eyes (which indicated belladonna). I also advised him if they showed distress or no change occurred by morning, to please call the vet as it was just too cruel to prolong.

Imagine my surprise in the morning when he called to advise me both horses were up and walking around! The whites of their eyes had cleared and even though their gait was wobbly, they were on the mend. I spoke to him the following day and all horses were back to normal. It’s cases like this that remind me that my career path was 100% spot on.


Poisoning 2 – After losing two of my much loved dogs to 1080 baiting, it was something that filled me with dread and fear – and the need to find answers. I was terrified one day when our dog had been out at work and returned with the same tell-tale symptoms – his eyes were red, he was unsteady on his feet, disorientation, drooling, vomiting and early symptoms of seizures had begun. I was afraid I would not have answers as we were some way from a vet clinic and I just didn’t know what to do. As with the horse poisoning story, I gave Horse (the dog) a small dose every 15 minutes and watched him. I had to wait until my then husband returned from work as he had our car. He was instructed to give the medicine every 15 minutes as I had done, while on his way to the vet clinic, over half an hour away. The vet called me 3 hours later to ask what I’d done, and was I sure he’d been baited. He’d taken all the steps to open Horse’s airway, inserted an IV to administer the meds – anti spasmodic and anti emetic yet within half an hour Horse was back to normal. He kept him in for observation but released him a few hours later. If I had known this when my two beautiful labradors were baited my life would have been very different – and they would have actually been able to grow into old dogs.


Poisoning 3 – Existing patients called in a panic as their much loved cat had been bitten by a snake. Again, I had no idea what to do but as the vet was some way away and it was the middle of the night, I advised them to use the combination of Belladonna, Nux Vomica and Lachesis, 2 drops every hour directly into her mouth. I received a call in the morning to say that the cat had stopped vomiting but was wobbly – I called every few hours and by that evening she was back to normal with no signs of illness. Just hours before she was suffering seizures, vomiting and rolling around uncontrollably. They would not have known she had been bitten if they had not seen it happen! She would not be alive if they hadn’t been there.


Poisoning 4 – A patient called to say she had been bitten by a redback spider on her head, had been experiencing dizziness, nausea and vomiting, pain and the site had begun oozing black blood/pus. The doctor had advised anti biotics but said they didn’t know if they could do much more. She did not contact me until weeks after the bite and I feared that the toxicity had set in and perhaps result in long term issues as redback bites are prone to do. I commenced her on the same combination as above. The excretion became clear and stopped altogether, as did the pain. It took over a week to clear up but that was understandable considering the delay. She has had no further related issues since the bite.


These are only a few of the many miracles I have seen in my career. There are many more – if you would like to read more, about any health issue, please just ask.

How To Successfully Treat Candida and Thrush

images-8Candida, or thrush, is a bodily reaction that can be present from birth, especially if the baby was born via caesarian and the mother chooses to bottle feed.

The human body being as it is, we have the ability to fight just about every issue – IF we do things the right way. During the birthing process, one of the thousands of micro processes taking place is that of transfer of beneficial bacteria into the gut and eventually the entire body.

Up until recently, if you mentioned candida to a doctor, they would roll their eyes and ask if you had been self diagnosing or visiting a quack. That simply dismissal has resulted in chronic and even terminal health down the line.

Sadly, the development of candida begins early in life and yes, it’s an emotive topic because it most certainly begins within early days – either from what the mother is eating/drinking or what is put into the baby.


Add to that, vaccinations and antibiotics within a few days/months and you have a lethal cocktail that will prevent even the basic bodily function. And let’s not forget sugar-loaded formulas and baby food – or the worst of all, that wive’s tale of ‘needing solid food’ before the body is even able to digest anything more than mother’s milk (not cow’s, or any other..) Supplementation with probiotics is not only recommended, but imperative. This alone can often make all the difference. So long as the diet that follow is beneficial rather than convenient.


Sugar, yeast, mushrooms, vinegar – and any foods containing them, will cause further imbalance. The usual way most people realise there is candida is by oral or genital thrush. These symptoms only appear long after the yeast organism has spread in excess of what it should be. Yes, yeast is needed for many reasons, not the least because it takes part in the formation of hormones and assimilation/utilisation of B vitamins. BUT once hormone imbalances come into play (perfumes, dioxins, medications, chicken, meat, etc) high oestrogen levels will cause yeast to flourish unbearably. This is why many pregnant women suffer so badly.


I have had indignant women excuse thrush one of two ways – “I’ve always had it, doesn’t bother me. My doctor says it’s nothing to worry about.” or “I am not giving up my favourite foods. My husband can put up with it.” First of all, ewww, but really – don’t people realise that if your body is pushing out abnormal secretions, it must be causing internal damage in the first place? We are also talking thrush being passed via breastfeeding – what about that poor child consuming it? Unusual secretions don’t exist just to be excreted. That happens because there is no more room inside and they have nowhere else to go. Add some warm water to a sachet of yeast. Allow it to ferment for just a few hours – imagine that going on in your body for years! Add a little sugar and let it fester against some raw skin – that is what is happening to your mucous membranes.


There is only one true way to eradicate what has the ability to trigger reactions throughout the body – that is by changing your diet. Yes, you can take homœopathics, wash with tea tree dilution and large amounts of vital probiotics. And there are many on the market – yoghurt is not going to do it – especially if you consider what is in dairy. But there are definitely better brands out there… The thing is, one organism can fast spread to millions in a short time. No bandaid solution is going to change that. You need perfect balance for just the right amount of yeast to be where it’s meant to be.


Alkaline living will allow that – although if you have been infested for too long, you will need to take those measures just to clean up. Other signs of candida (and yes, I did already say ewww) – body odour (cheese…), smelly feet, tinea, dandruff, yellowing nails, yellow coated tongue and of course, the secretions. In babies, SM33 or similar is given to remove the topical signs only, not the actual disorder. Unchecked, candida can affect just about every bodily function involving the mucous membranes. If you imagine itchy feet or even crutch, that aggravation is going on all through the body in different ways – abnormal abdominal bloating and wind, pain, hyperactivity, headaches, weak muscles and organs, fertility issues, cycle, etc, etc – and it CAN be passed on from person to person by sharing drinking bottles, unprotected sex, etc. It can be aggravated by wearing nylon underwear BUT the main thing is diet. Removing external symptoms will not affect the internal workings one iota. See my posts on alkaline diet.


Any homœopathic prep should contain Hydrastis as this is THE candida drainage remedy (see my homeopathic site – http://chrysalishealthdirect.viviti.com/  and check out the CYC info for more details.)

Medicinally, I have seen good results with the use of Nilstat but at almost $100 a bottle (not on PBS) you are better of using probiotics. And believe it or not, enemas and rectal application of probiotic capsules makes all benefits quadruple in effects.

Any foods containing yeast, sugar, mushrooms and vinegar must be eradicated and once under control, kept to a minimum, if ever. It really is that simple. Well, for most it’s not simple as these foods are part of their main diet. Sugar is to eradicated totally – occasional replacement with agave, pear or apple syrup and stevia are pretty much the only sugars that should be used – NEVER replace sugar with artificial sweeteners because they carry a whole new range of health issues. Just remember, candida is simply the reflection that they body is out of balance – the only way to correct that is to change it permanently. If you can’t start that at birth, start at soon as you can and stick to it.

So, what can we take internally? Aside from homœopathics, and bicarb to rebalance pH, there are actually measures that help to flush and speed up healing.

  • A STRONG probiotic to rebalance internal flora – order here
  • Support for the gut while rebalancing internal flora – order here

There is no one step treatment for candida – it is complex and affects every aspect of your health both in short and long term. Please get your pH right and take these measures if you want to address the whole picture.






Shingles – belong on your roof, not your body!



The word alone sends people across the globe into an unnatural but understandable fear frenzy.

I don’t know why. It is simply so mismanaged that for too long, too many have suffered.

Surprisingly, the worst cases I saw were during my nursing days. We nurses were almost conditioned to treat cases as a mix between cancer and psychiatric health. Darkened rooms, morphine, lotions and potions and lots of finger pointing at people who did not vaccinate. Funny that, considering the vaccine only recently came into play – I guess the work was going on behind the scenes long ago, in preparation for the day when it would be included on the vaccine register…

Talk to any expert and I am yet to meet two who agree just what and why shingles exists. Some say it happens when you don’t get chicken pox but are exposed to it later on. Others say it’s because the illness wasn’t allowed to run its course. Others still say it’s because you got chicken pox and it lived on your nervous system. Others still say it’s triggered only in highly nervous/excitable people by the dormant virus lurking at the base of your spine.


Within natural therapies and integrative health we combine research, results and fact – and the fact is, when someone presents to me with shingles I don’t ask if they’ve had it, whether they’ve been vaccinated, if they are highly strung or anything else for that matter. You treat shingles, like anything else – both symptomatically and wholistically.

And contrary to what experts say, you can eradicate it – permanently.

Treatment is quite simple. That is not to dismiss the severity of the illness because it is unbearably severe – especially when it comes on in people already suffering illnesses such as cancer, TB or any other symptom set that is causing pain and illness enough already.

But treatment IS simple. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3 – and 4..

1. Supplementation – I do not care how healthy your diet is purported to be, our soils, water and air are not – and therefore, at some stage (I would say EVERY stage) we need wholefood-sourced supplementation. I have my own preferred super tonics which are discussed in other threads on this blog – and along with working for shingles they will address every deficiency that could be affecting your body – and then some. Extra LYSINE and ZINC is always advisable, just for the duration of the shingles – both of these nutrients have proven to be deficient in shingle sufferers and make all the world of difference, both within the skin and nervous system/pain.


2.  Topical applications – my favourite is Hypericum the herb. It is one of the great nervous tonics and if taken topically, it does not carry restrictions that St John’s Wort usually carries when taken orally. (Note – when you are warned against St John’s Wort you are done a disservice. It is NOT dangerous – the truth is, it is merely an adaptogen and has detoxing properties. This means, if you are on a medication for which your doctor believes you must have in your system 24/7, then by taking St John’s Wort orally, your liver could flush the medicine as a toxic chemical – leaving you ‘unprotected’ by that medication for a few hours. In truth, St John’s Wort is often arguably more effective for the symptoms you are taking the other drugs for…) It can be used as a bathing herb – with the tea poured into water, or as a topical application.


Papaw cream or even a poultice, mixed with Aloe gel – I prefer fresh with both – prepared in a blender or juicer and applied for a few hours a day for relief. Zinc creams have also proven to be soothing and medicinal for the lesions. However with all of these things are almost impossible to apply when the lesions are at their worst, due to fire-like pain. This sometimes needs to be done with discretion and only once the lesions are less painful.


3. Homœopathy – arguably the best line of defence and if taken correctly (you may need to see a homœopath or buy a purpose-made specific remedy) can remove shingles on a permanent basis – something I have seen many times during my career. Just a few of the remedies that work alone or together (my preference in such cases) –

Rhus Tox

Arsenicum Album





You will note, that each of these in their true form is a poison, capable of causing a blister like, painful rash on the person who comes into contact with them. Therefore, in homœopathic form, they soothe and remove/reverse the symptoms present.

4. Exposure/toxic hygiene – see my thread on toxicity of the home. This applies to life in general. For example, someone who is exposed on a regular basis to toxic chemicals that break down the health of the individual, health issues are going to be a major problem. Please clean up your house and home – remove all the toxic triggers. You will find that alongside health issues, sensitivities, allergies and yes, even susceptibility to awful illness like shingles, could be a thing of the past.
