Water is the source of strength for the sick
Let’s start with the most useful component of any diet is water. Why is it recommended to use liberally and frequently?
For the life of the virus Varicella–Zoster in the body of accumulated toxins that are literally poisoning him. To remove them, you must accelerate the metabolism and natural process of purification.
To do this, doctors recommend to drink more water, not soda or lemonade, and simple clean mineral water. The temperature of the drink should be as close to human body temperature — 36 to 39°.

Even if cases completely refuses to eat and drinking only water, the healing process is accelerated. But if he will eat and refuse fluids, the disease will flow long and hard. Here’s the relationship between water and pox.
Products that have to be excluded from the diet in the first place
- hard gelatin — fatty meats and fish, sausage, mushrooms;
- products-allergens — berries, citrus, seafood and everything that you eat rarely or want to try for the first time;
- sweets and coffee/tea with sugar;
- irritants of the skin and mucous membranes — onion, radish, garlic, spices;
- pickles, canned and smoked meats;
- fresh milk (except for breast milk);
Why these Goodies are harmful to the patient. Varicella–Zoster?
Do I need to follow such a strict diet that eliminates almost all the Goodies? To solve, of course, to you, but before you decide, read my arguments. Why is the diet excludes foods-allergens?
The fact that the chicken pox severe itching. Itchy watery pimples, permanently residing in the fevered state. If you add to this picture and even allergies, the patient’s condition deteriorates.
The pimples will begin to itch stronger again will be new, and maybe even more because of allergies.
Irritating the mucous products as well as pickles, preserves and cured meats containing chemicals, is also excluded from the diet because the rash of chickenpox appear not only on the skin, but on mucous membranes.
While there pimples heal slower and hurt them easier.
Why not sweet? Sugar disrupts the metabolic processes occurring in the skin. Articles about acne and teenage skin problems I’ve said many times about the dangers of sugar and its impact on the oiliness of the epidermis.
