Smoothie for Shingles


Do you suffer from Shingles or other uncomfortable health problems? If so you might want to try this great smoothie recipe.  Even if you don’t have shingles, this smoothie tastes great and is good for you.   All of the ingredients in the recipe are important for helping to cure shingles or any other health problem where your immune system could do with a boost.

This recipe uses several foods that have powerful curative properties, and will help you get your immune system back on track in no time! Try to have at least one smoothie every day to make sure your body is receiving the necessary vitamins, minerals, and other all-natural ingredients it needs while fighting off a harmful virus.

The use of almond milk means that you’re avoiding dairy, which can just cause mucous plaque in your intestines, blocking the absorbance of nutrients. The vitamin C in the orange juice will naturally aid your immune system, while the antioxidants in the blueberries will also help your body restore itself as it fights off the shingles virus. The various vitamins and minerals contained in the spinach and banana (iron and potassium to name just two!) make sure that you are getting enough nutrients to keep your body in its best fighting state! The raw honey adds a touch of sweetness, and also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that can help rid your body of the shingles infection.


Ingredients (makes 2 smoothies)

½ cup almond milk

½ cup orange juice (all-natural, no sugar added)

1 cup fresh spinach leaves

1 handful of fresh or frozen blueberries

1 medium banana

Raw honey, to taste



Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender. If the consistency is too thick, you can add some more almond milk or orange juice to thin it out.

Shingles is a painful and uncomfortable virus that is most common in people over 60 years of age or those with weakened immune systems, such as people with Lupus, HIV, or who are receiving intensive chemotherapy treatments. Shingles, also known as the herpes zoster virus, manifests itself in the form of a painful rash and blisters: these are usually located along the trunk of the body, but sometimes can also appear on the patient’s face.

Those suffering from such a painful and uncomfortable virus can sometimes find it hard to even leave the house, let alone get into see their doctor or healthcare professional! In addition, the costs incurred with medical visits and prescription drugs are often too much for many people to handle, and many would also like to avoid strange and potentially harmful chemicals from entering their body.
