With this virus inside your body, your body is fighting and working hard to get rid of it and cure the body of this disease. Most people consume junk and foods that are preventing them from healing and getting better. In fact, they are making it harder for their digestive system and aren't giving their bodies the help and nutrients that it needs to cure shingles fast. This is why the use of a healthy Shingles diet is so important – it allows your body to speed up recovery and cleanse itself from any toxins you might have inside you.
In this article, I will share some useful Shingles diet tips that you can apply right away:
Fruits & Vegetables
Most people overlook the value and benefit of fruits and vegetables as a Shingles diet.
First, understand that the biggest expenditure of energy is digestion. Which means that when you eat certain foods (meats, dairy, junkfood), your body has to work over-time and expend energy to break it down and digest it. Your body needs all the energy it can get to cure Shingles fast. That's why eating certain foods that are EASY for your body to digest and use is important. Fruits and vegetables are easy for the body to digest because they are raw (not cooked and nutrients are alive), and filled with water.
I recommend kiwi, watermelon, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, wheat grass, blueberries… most fruits and vegetables will work well as a Shingles diet.
That means you want to AVOID junkfood, meat, dairy products, or anything that your body can't properly use.
Vitamin C is a useful supplement to consume, as it will help your body heal and cure Shingles faster. You can buy Vitamin C at the supplement store, or even get it in certain foods (like oranges). I recommend consuming a lot of Vitamin C while suffering from Shingles.
Making sure you're drinking lots of water is important to stay hydrated, as your body will flush out toxins through your urinary system. Not only that, but drinking the RIGHT water is important. Avoid tap water, as it's filled with chlorine and other chemicals. While bottled water may be clean, it is also acidic (it has a negative pH balance). I'd recommend clean water, bottled if you have to, but add a lemon to it. This will help alkalize the water and give you a healing affect that you can add to your Shingles diet. Make sure you're drinking LOTS of water every day.
As you can see, a proper Shingles diet is extremely important for you to be able to cure Shingles. If you don't follow these principles, you will continue to suffer. And what I shared here is just the tip of the iceberg. In the How To Cure Shingles e-book, I go into specific details on what foods to eat and specific diet plans.
