Colloidal Silver

At the time of this writing, we are in the midst of the cold and flu season; and this has been a terrible year. And the people who seem to be suffering the worst? Those who were talked into getting the flu shot. Personally speaking, I'm not the least bit surprised.

I am grateful that the health food store I work at does not require us to get one. And for those who are required by their employers to get one (if they know to do it), they make a bee-line into the store and grab up either a heavy metal cleanse or a whole body cleanse and start on it right away. And many of these are people who are in the health care industry! They do NOT want it. I don't blame them, I would do the same thing and get that poison out of my system asap

Alternately, there are many ways to try to keep yourself and your family well during these highly contagious seasons and around highly contagious people ~ a quality multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (whole food, if possible), increasing your daily in-take of vitamin D3, echinacea, or even olive leaf extract or oregano extract

Another product that does very well with boosting immunities and has remarkable healing qualities is Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver has been around for centuries and was even recommended and written about by Hippocrates, the "Father of Medicine." I'll bet your grandparents have used it, if not your own family. 

CS can be used both internally and topically and may be bought as a gel (topical use) or in a more liquid state (internal AND topical use). The list of benefits is nearly endless, both internally and topically: 

  • viruses and allergies: from colds, flu, chicken pox, shingles, warts, herpes/cold sores, hay fever, various allergies, etc.
  • skin conditions: simple cuts and scrapes, cradle cap, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, ringworm, poison ivy/oak, insect stings/bites, acne, blackheads, boils, skin tags, etc.
  • inflammation due to infection, bladder inflection, tonsillitis, GIRD/reflux, yeast infections, thrush, parasites, stomach ulcers, gum disease, etc.
  • SOME have even declared benefits for reducing symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, certain cancers, diabetes, arthritis, lupus, gum disease, etc.**
Most companies offer a variety of bottle-types ~ spritzers, squirt, nose sprays, different-sized droppers, pour spout. And, personally, I always look for brown glass bottles. Some companies offer other fine products, but they put them in blue or brown plastic bottles ~ I, personally, prefer brown glass for prolonged purity of product. Also note that the gel form should only be used topically, while the liquid form can be used topically or internally.

The better products are usually made with 10 parts-per-million ~ look for 10PPM on the label. CS is NOT meant to be diluted, use it in the state you buy it in. 

Generally accepted doses:

Maintenance dose: Recommended ingestion for adults - One teaspoon daily.
We [website] recommend ½ dosages for children 4 years and older, or as directed by a health care provider
In the presence of others with compromised immune systems: Recommended ingestion – 1 teaspoon 3 times a day, or as directed by a health care provider.
When confronted with an immediate immune challenge that may have compromised your feeling of wellbeing: Recommended ingestion – Take 1 teaspoon 7 times a day.
Long-term immune stress or compromise: Recommended ingestion – Take 1 teaspoon 5 times a day, or as directed by a health care provider.
How many sprays or droppers = 1 Teaspoon?
50 vertical sprays = 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
30 fine mist sprays = 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
6 (2 oz/60 ml) droppers = 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
5 (4 oz/120 ml) droppers = 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
5 (8 oz/240 ml) droppers = 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
Note: Although the dropper only fills up half-way with 1 squeeze, this is considered to be 1 dropper.

For full disclosure, you should know that my favorite CS brand is Sovereign Silver. (Dosage information, above, is from their website) I think that their products are of the highest quality and sold at the best prices. You can find their products in most health food stores. Another product to ALWAYS have in your first aid kit.

Stay well!
