In this video, we’re going to talk about why it seems that everyone is getting shingles.

Shingles is a viral infection caused by a virus called herpes zoster, the same virus that causes chickenpox. This virus often lays dormant for many years before creating a severe and painful rash.

Normally, 1.5 to 2.5 out of 1000 people will have shingles on average. However, from 2000 to 2007, there was an average of 3 cases of shingles per 1000 people.

In certain areas, this number can be even higher.

Shingles hides in your nerves in a dormant state until you experience a suppression of immunity.

If your immune system is weakened in any way, you can potentially develop shingles if you have the virus.

Someone with a strong immune system is less likely to have a severe case of shingles.

Certain things can be a trigger for this virus coming out of remission and causing shingles, including:

1. Cancer and asthma drugs

2. Prednisone

3. Radiation

4. Stress

5. A poor diet

6. A lack of sleep

7. Pesticides and insecticides

In more recent years, our exposure to pesticides has increased significantly. I believe that this is causing poor immune function and increased cases of shingles.

The best things to help detoxify the harmful pesticides in your body are:

• Fasting

• Vitamin D

• Vitamin C

• Zinc

• L-Lysine

• Melatonin

• Cruciferous vegetables (especially radish)
