Can ANF Therapy®️ Help With Issues Related to Shingles?

Shingles or Herpes zoster is a viral disease caused by reactivation of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) which is 1 of 9 herpesviruses known to have the ability to infect humans.

It was mentioned as a separate condition in the 18th century. Before then, it was misdiagnosed as chickenpox.

In childhood, when a person usually gets infected first time with VZV, it develops chickenpox disease.

After the primary infection, Herpes zoster spreads to the spinal ganglia and remains in a latent, inactive state throughout life.

The virus is activated due to the decrease in immunity, which occurs after:

 

-Emotional stress

-Intense physical effort

-The use of immunosuppressive drugs

-The presence of malignant diseases

The activation causes typical changes in the skin.

Reactivation can occur in any part of life, but mostly in age 50-70 in about 15% of the population that had chickenpox.

Symptoms & Clinical Picture

Shingles symptoms are varied and include: 

-Slightly increased body temperature

-Fatigue

-Exhaustion

-Tingling and itching sensation throughout the body 

You can see blisters that are arranged in groups (or long stripes) and are filled with clear liquid on the part of the skin where limited redness is located.

The changes can be localized on one side of the body, although they can also occur on both sides (zoster duplex). 

If the part in the area of the trigeminal nerve is affected, complications in the form of conjunctivitis and damage to the cornea (zoster ophthalmicus) are possible, while zoster in the area of the auricular nerve can damage the auricular nerve.

If the abdomen is affected, the pain can be extremely severe.

Risk Factors

Many risk factors can be applied to both young people (and children) and the elderly. Although Shingles is often diagnosed in the elderly, it is not always the case. 

-Some important risk factors for shingles include:

-Being older than 50 when there is a natural decline in cell-mediated immunity

-Being diagnosed with chronic disease(s) such as diabetes, leukemia, or similar

-Being diagnosed with HIV

-Immunosuppressions

-Exposure to immunotoxins

-Psychological stress

-Mechanical trauma

-Radiation/chemotherapy
