Question
My sister has had shingles for 3 years or more.  Treated with Western medicine.  With little help.  Has Acupuncture or Chinese medicine of any help for this condition.

Thanks,
Judy

Answer
Hi Judy ,
Yes, there are good treatments for shingles and post herpetic neuralgia with Traditional Chinese Medicine,herbs and acupuncture. She should find someone on NCCAOM.org in her area.  That is the board certification commission website. She wants someone that has their masters degree in Oriental Medicine. Good luck.
