SHINGLES treatment in Brisbane

In Uncategorized

Nutritional Support for Shingles

Shingles is a condition characterized by the appearance of red blisters and can be extremely painful. Effective help however, is available for people who want to proactively manage their disease and enjoy life to the fullest. The traditional approach is medications and physical therapy, but now a substantial amount of nutrient research validates the effect diet and nutritional supplements can have for the body to heal. Positive life style changes can also aid in this process.

Foods to Eat

A proper diet can help ensure that your immune system is working well. When your immunity is strong, the chances of the Herpes Zoster virus manifesting itself are less. Moreover, this virus affects the nerve endings. Thus, if you are already affected with shingles, it is important to follow a diet for shingles that helps to boost your nervous system. The following foods that should form a part of a diet for shingles:

  • Fruits and vegetables provide your body with all the essential micronutrients. Thus, it is important to ensure that you include adequate quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet. This will help you build and maintain immunity.
  • Vitamin B-6 is an important nutrient for those suffering from shingles as it benefits the nerves. Some of the foods that are rich in vitamin B-6 include potatoes, bananas, brewer’s yeast and nuts.
  • Other foods to eat for a shingles diet include whole grain foods such as brown rice.
  • Garlic is a natural source of antioxidants and is a natural antibiotic as well. Try to incorporate garlic into your shingles diet to help heal the blisters faster.
  • Lysine is an amino acid that can inhibit the multiplication of Herpes Zoster virus. Lysine is found in proteins, dairy and most vegetables. Some of the good sources of lysine include fish, red meat, dairy products, eggs, apples, pears, apricots, avocados pineapples beans and asparagus.
  • Drink lots of water as this will help your body flush out the impurities from your system.

 Foods to Avoid

There are also a number of foods to avoid if you are suffering from shingles:

  • Avoid foods that contain arginine. This is an amino acid that can help the Herpes Zoster virus to replicate. Arginine is found in nuts, chocolate, tomatoes, gelatin, wheat germ, brussel sprouts, cashews, grapes, pumpkin seeds, pecans, blackberries, blueberries, peanuts and sugars.
  • Avoid consuming refined carbohydrates such as white bread, white rice, and dishes made with processed flour.
  • Avoid consuming foods that are high in saturated fats.
  • Alcohol and caffeine have a detrimental effect on your body’s ability to fight against diseases and these should be avoided if you are suffering from shingles.
  • Avoid consuming fast food and junk food as they will not provide your body with proper nutrition. In fact they will only serve to inhibit your immune system as the body has to expend more energy to digest such food.

Lysine Rich & Low in Arginine Foods

Lysine is an essential amino acid that plays an active role in growth and development, collagen formation, calcium absorption and cholesterol regulation. Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid involved in wound healing, immune system function and hormone secretion. Both are widely available in food and generally occur together. Eating foods that are high in lysine and relatively low in arginine may help prevent outbreaks of the herpes simplex virus — arginine helps the virus replicate, while lysine counteracts the effects of arginine.
