29. I developed Shingles this Spring. I am convinced my use of Turmeric tempered the problem

I wouldn't discourage people from getting the vaccine but a friend who had the most extended and painful experience developed Shingles months after getting the vaccine.

I have a very strong immune system, so the turmeric, nightly soaks in Epsom Salts baths and coatings of an anti-itch, analgesic gel got me through the experience. I developed a few blisters and the rash, while very uncomfortable, never turned into the nightmare situation my friend experienced. The thing I wasn't expecting was the extended period of numbness that happened after the rash cleared. I could still feel a mild itch, but scratching was a waste of time.
