Apple Cider Vinegar and Shingles

by Najmah
(Kansas City, MO)

I had a friend who had developed shingles.

I suggested that he try adding a cup of apple cider vinegar to his bath water twice-a-day and just keep splashing it all over his body for 10-15 minutes before bathing himself. He said it gave him immediate relief from the very first treatment.

He was told to make a tonic of acv and honey (1 tablespoon of each in 8 oz spring water)and drink it at least 2x/day.

He said his doctors were amazed when he got rid of the shingles in less than 3 days. He's been using apple cider and honey ever since. That was back in 2003; he just turned 82 years old on March 17th and has no health problems whatsoever!

Shingles & Apple Cider Vinegar

Hello Najmah,

Wow, I wish I would have had your advice a few years back when I had the shingles. I suffered with them for 3 months and the pain was just awful. I tried so many home remedies and some gave me a little relief for a brief amount of time but your remedy would have saved me so much agony.

Thank you so much for sharing your home remedy for shingles...I'm sure you will help many people suffering as I had.

I do know that the Vinegar tonic is excellent for so many illnesses and building our immune system. I have the recipe listed on the left column.
