This week on Beating Neuropathy and Chronic Pain, we’re going to talk about shingles. Shingles is a recurrence of the chicken pox virus, varicella zoster. If you had chicken pox as a child, the virus can be reactivated in your body and become shingles. It can present as unexplained acute mid-back pain and should be treated with antiviral medication within the first 72 hours of onset. Early diagnosis and treatment will lessen the duration and likelihood of complications from shingles.
One of the side effects of shingles is difficulty performing daily activities, pain, lesions, and postherpetic neuralgia. Post-herpetic neuralgia is a significant complication that occurs in about 50% of shingles sufferers. It presents as shooting pains, burning, or tingling that can last to months–or even–years after a shingles episode.
Treatment for shingles complications often consists of strong drugs, pain injections, and radio frequency ablation. There are some recent studies showing the effectiveness of other, less invasive modalaties for treating shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. These include TENS (transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation) and LLLT/LED (low-level laser therapy and light-emitting diode therapy).
One study showed that treatment with TENS showed a significant lessening in the development of postherpetic neuralgia. This kind of treatment must be administered by a trained clinician. Another study showed LLLT was effective in treating both active shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. Yet another, related article shows LLLT was also effective in treating the same kind of herpes that causes cold sores.

As of this posting, community activist Alfred Flowers has been released from Hennepin County Jail. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local politicians who put pressure on the city of Minneapolis and invite our listeners to tune in on Wednesday night to find out the series of events that led to Mr. Flowers arrest and release. We also will examine the role of some community leaders who sat by idle and could not make a move to the left or right because their hands are dirty. The phone lines will be open. We invite you to listen and call in as the team of Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen give you the news and information the mainstream media will bypass.
A father posts on "Youtube" his video of whipping his daughter with a belt because she has been missing for three days and is out somewhere dressed in a short, revealing dress. A mother posts on "Youtube" her video of whipping her son with a belt, commanding him to stand with his pants down and his rear end sticking out to give her a better aim at the target, as punishment for him skipping school. Often people will say that the problem with today's disobedient children is that they didn't get enough "discipline" in the form of corporal punishment. But does this type of "correction" actually correct the problem? Or does it merely instill just enough fear for the child to obey until they are bigger than you and old enough to do as they please? Relationships that are based on fear have to be maintained with violence. What happens when the roles are reversed, and the child you used to whip is now the adult who must watch over you, a frail and helpless elderly parent? These beating rituals, held over from a slave culture, does instill something in the child. But it's not what you think. Discover the real effect of physical "discipline" and how to effectively "train up a child in the way you would have him to go, and he will not depart from it."
