Oral Shingles: 10 Years of Unrelenting Mouth Pain
Having Herpes Zoster or shingles is bad enough but having it in the mouth has to be the most painful experience ever imaginable. That was the case of Ann G. who had suffered with severe mouth pain for ten years. All traditional testing, examinations and pain medications did not affect the unrelenting mouth pain. Because there were no typical clinical blisters on the oral mucosa, clinicians did not even consider the existence of herpes zoster. In this case, the virus was present but without the typical appearance of blisters. The clue to the presence of herpes zoster is the severe burning pain frequently associated with this particular virus.
The pain was so severe it prevented Ann from sleeping through the night for the past ten years. Compounding Ann’s mouth pain is the fact that sleep deprivation alone provides its own list of major symptoms: Exhaustion, fatigue and lack of physical energy are the more common symptoms. Exhaustion and fatigue then affect ones emotional state: mood swings, pessimism, depression, sadness, stress and anger. The complexity of this vicious cycle spins the patient’s life out of control with no relief in sight.
The heightened pain and body dysfunction are due to the fact that 47 percent of the motor and sensory neurons of the frontal cortex of the brain are connected to the face and mouth. The brain’s frontal cortex controls speech, memory access, and problem solving activities. The brain relies on sleep to function effectively and insufficient rest adversely affects that ability. The effect on physical energy is also startling: otherwise healthy people quickly show symptoms of age and early diabetes as glucose metabolism falls by up to forty percent. The rapid onset of aging is caused by cortisol, which is released by the adrenal glands. Any distress to the body causes the adrenals to pump out hormones to meet the body’s emergency. These physical reactions disappear when the distress resolves and test subjects are allowed to rest properly. Since Ann’s pain was not able to be resolved, her sleep depravation and accompanied symptoms continued.
Ann’s family dentist referred her to our office. Using Direct Resonance Testing, an accurate diagnosis of oral Shingles was made at the initial visit. Because Ann was so debilitated, she required high quality quantum nutrition to rejuvenate her system. Since her mouth was so sore, Ann gravitated to soft, processed foods with little to no nutritional value. Destroying the chicken pox virus at the beginning would just disperse the toxins throughout her body causing much distress and diffuse pain. Attempting to destroy the herpes virus without opening up the avenues of excretion (liver, kidneys and lymphatics) is a guaranteed prescription for disaster. After six weeks of rebuilding Ann’s immune system with organic phytonutrients uncontaminated with pesticides, solvents or heavy metals, treatment was begun. Specific quantum nutrients were prescribed to suppress viral activity along with bio-frequencies. With each successive treatment, Ann’s oral pain started to subside. Following the fourth visit, Ann was totally pain free and sleeping through the night.
