Ayurvedic Remedies For Shingles

Hey, are you on the lookout for the right management and prevention of this viral attack? Planet Ayurveda is here for your upliftment.


Look around you, the spirit of the season has started to show its trouble over nature and on your body. Yet another season of dry summers with hot blistering heat waves have started and so is the time for many heat-related viral attacks like chickenpox, shingles, conjunctivitis, and many others. Among this category of ailments, the most common one is the shingles.

Shingle is a blistering rash caused by a viral infection triggered by the Herpes Zoster virus. Although Shingles can emerge anywhere on your body, it is most commonly seen as a single stripe of blisters that wraps across your chest on either the left or right side. The early signs of Shingles include itchy rashes with red color, enlarged lymph nodes, fever, and chills associated with tingling or burning sensation on the skin.


The Evolution of the Disease

When the varicella-zoster virus enters your body, it causes chickenpox as the initial onset of disease.The virus goes into the nerve tissues surrounding your spinal cord and brain after chickenpox has completed its course. We don’t know why, but the virus might “wake up” and move through nerve fibers to your skin years later. It then delivers its second blow: – Shingles, often known as herpes zoster.

A compromised immune system may allow the infection to resurface. You’re more likely to have shingles if you’ve had chickenpox or if you are above 50 years of age or under a great deal of pressure. Often diseases such as cancer, HIV, or other diseases that weaken your immune system have also been shown to establish this malady. Individuals who have suffered a severe physical injury or those who take steroid drugs for a long time are also among the category who have a higher risk of this viral attack.

Shingles can cause consequences that continue long after the rash has disappeared, such as; If particular nerves in the brain are affected, it might cause inflammation or facial paralysis or If your rash was in or around your eye, it could cause vision issues and loss.

Diagnosis and Treatment

This contagious disease is diagnosed with its characteristic blister pattern seen on the skin surface. Physical examination and a few blood tests confirm the diagnosis. According to the modern system of medicine, Antiviral medicines can speed up your recovery and reduce your chance of complications. They work best if you take them within three days of the onset of the rash, so consult your doctor as early as possible. The majority of people who develop shingles only get them once. However, it can resurface in persons with compromised immune systems.

Ayurveda in the Field of Shingles

Ayurveda, the age-old science of life, understands and comprehends a disease a little different from the modern view. Here all maladies are understood in terms of the imbalance of the innate bodily entities called Dosha. According to Ayurveda, Shingles occur due to aggravation in all three entities of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Excess atmospheric and body heat, incompatible meal combinations, insufficiently digested meals, improper meal timing, all build-up toxins in the body are all linked to Shingles. As the skin is the Upadhatu of Rasa, the first product of digestion, it is unavoidably affected.

Just as the cause of disease is due to improper diet and regimen, the treatment adopted in Ayurveda involves the two aspects along with supplementary medications.

By combining corrective Ahar (diet), Vihaar (regimen), and Aushadhi (medication), Ayurveda can play a key role in controlling Shingles. Apart from this, Venesection or Siravyadha – a type of therapeutic bloodletting treatment done with the application of leeches (Jalaukavacharana), therapeutic purgation, or virecana, and vasti karma (medicated enema) may be effective for pacifying Pitta and vitiated Rakta entities. External application of herbal pastes is also often practiced.
