Preventing Shingles

Monday, 10 October 2011 09:20 AM

Question: Is it a good idea to get the shingles vaccine? Is there a better way to prevent them?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

I never advise anyone to get an adult vaccine. Having an attack of shingles is a sign of immune suppression. To avoid this, one needs to avoid immune-suppressing oils (vegetable oils), eat a healthy diet with 10 servings of vegetables, avoid sugar, and take supplements that boost immunity naturally.

These supplements include astaxanthin, beta-1,3/1,6-glucan, and a well-balanced vitamin/mineral. The dose for astaxanthin is 4 mg twice daily, taken with meals. The beta-1,3/1,6-glucan dose is 250 mg to be taken on an empty stomach with water once a week. The vitamin/mineral brand I recommend is Extend Core.
