Shingles: Most will say lysine Amino Acid is a natural remedy for shingles. I have been having great success with silver hydrosol. This has been clearing up our cases within 24-48 hours. We use a particular product called argentyn 23 from immunogenics labs.

I agree that Argentyn 23 from Natural-Immunogenics is an excellent product. I have not given it yet for shingles but seeing cases clear up in 24-48 hours is very impressive!
