I’m sure you’ve seen the commercials... 

Heard the ads…the celebrity spokespeople...    

…The constant reminders that this DANGER is lurking just around the corner—and it’s much more serious than what you experienced as a kid.  

What was itchy decades ago is now an unbearably PAINFUL rash. 

Shingles is no laughing matter.  

If you’re over 50 and you had chicken pox, you’re at a HIGHER RISK than anyone else.  

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, there’s been a huge uptick in the amount of seniors getting shingles near the eyes 

Near enough to lose vision! 

Today, I’ll show you exactly what you can do to SAFEGUARD your eyes against this painful, insidious virus. 

Stay vigilant against this SNEAKY virus 

If you had chicken pox, it means the virus is hiding out in nerve tissues near your brain and spinal cord.  

At any point, it can “wake up” and attack your body. 

And as you age, your risk increases. What’s more, your risk is much higher if you are: 

  • Over the age of 50;  
  • Undergoing chemo or radiation therapy, or are on certain drugs like steroids;  
  • Suffering from a depressed immune system 
  • Stressed out;  
  • Eating a bad diet; 
  • And more.   

The news gets worse: in the last 12 years, the rate of shingles getting in eyes has TRIPLED. 

And that’s pretty much the LAST THING you want to happen; the virus can cause severe damage to your eyes!  

But the good news is that early diagnosis and treatment can help SIGNIFICANTLY reduce serious complications like this.  

Here’s how you can take action immediately—don’t wait until your vision is in danger to take these steps 

The 2 vitamins you NEED 

There are two vitamins that can jumpstart your immune system – intravenous vitamin C (IVC) and B12.  

Intravenous vitamins provide a good deal more benefits than a supplement can, without harming your body.  

In addition to helping you fight and eliminate shingles, they will also help you fight the pain.  

Your first course of action is to reach out to a holistic doctor. Since these treatments are intravenous, they will require a doctor.  

If you’ve read about B12 on the internet, you most likely think there are only two types: cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin. Sources are correct when they say methylcobalamin is better than cyano. But there are cases where methyl is downright bad for you. 

That’s why I always test my patients before I give them a B12 shot. If you’re over-methylated, you need hydroxycobalamin. That’s what will work best. If you’re not, then methylcobalamin is your best course of action.
