Re: The start of a long haul

Does anyone know if the vaccinations really help?  I have heard that they only work for a few types of shingles.  Can they test people to see what kind of chicken pox antibodies they have in order to get the right vaccine?

Re: The start of a long haul

Apparently the new (and far more expensive one) is very effective.  The old one...not so much.

Re: The start of a long haul

Schnookie, I would think that a doctor could do a blood test to see how much protection or lack thereof would be in ones system.  When I was pregnant (many years ago-my son is now 35), there was a rubella outbreak in Edmonton.  My father was almost in a panic for me to get the doc to check me out.  Doc did a blood test and wrote the results down so I could show them to my dad - I have enough antibodies in my system to keep me protected well beyond my expiry date (according to the doc).

I have heard the same Sue.  The doc told me the old one is a live vaccine but, the new expensive one is a dead one which is much more effective.

Re: The start of a long haul

I learned via an herbalist class today that pot marigold (not the French marigold)...calendula, is great used externally and internally for shingles. Who knew? I thought if this can help those here with shingles, that I had better pass this on.

Re: The start of a long haul

Calendula ointment is actually recommended to be used to soothe the effects of whole breast radiation!

Re: The start of a long haul

Actually, he mentioned that calendula was being studied in relation to helping out with breast cancer. He barely touched on that.

It can do a lot of things that I had no idea of, actually.

Cool. :thumbsup:
