On a completely random note, I’ve been drinking silver.
No, I haven’t boiled down my kitchen utensils,
I’ve been experimenting with colloidal silver.
Why would I do this cry thing, you ask? Good question.
So, I’ve shared some of the interesting health issues I’ve had over the last year. I’ve engaged both typical docs as well as pursued a more naturalistic route. I’ve tried some interesting things along the way, and I must say that on an overall basis the more targeted natural treatment has done quite well. I am not against engaging in medicines or other treatment if necessary, but I do not want that to be the first path I take.
In the past year I’ve managed to get my blood pressure down and improve my overall health without medication. I won’t bore with the details.
So, at some point I decided to study the uses of colloidal silver. After a lot of reading, consultation, and testimonials I decided to take the plunge.
The first thing I realized was that buying colloidal silver is prohibitively expensive. But you can make your own. So I bought a highly recommended colloidal silver generator. It’s still pricey at over $200, but if used consistently it pays for itself very quickly. In fact, it already has.
Here’s my own experiments so far: (1) I swish an ounce in my mouth and gargle every morning and evening before swallowing. (2) I have put a few drops on a band-aid and put it over a wart I have had forever. (3) I spray if on a skin tag I have once or twice a day.
(1) This maintenance dose is supposed to help attack any microbials you may have ingested that are sitting in your stomach, and the gargling helps to attack any hanging out in your throat (tonsils). Silver is a natural antibiotic but doesn’t come with the same risks of resistance as traditional antibiotics. It’s also shown to have anti-viral properties. While this small does won’t guarantee you won’t ever get sick, it’s supposed to help prevent getting sick. (2) Under the theory that warts might be caused by viruses, I tried this. It’s not gone, but much smaller, and looks to be working. (3) Spraying the skin tag has done absolutely nothing that I can see.
I share this for one main reason – I really don’t care whether or not people think it works or doesn’t, is nutty or isn’t. I won’t argue or debate it. Do your own research and believe what you will. But what I will say is that anyone who argues that this is harmful or could kill me is simply wrong. There are countless people using colloidal silver with no ill effects, and the concerns on the product date back to a much cruder version, at much higher concentration, and much higher doses. So, try it or don’t, but anyone who scares you off on it – even a physician – doesn’t really know what they are talking about. The guy pictured above is a poster child for fear-mongers. He drank a bunch of colloidal silver, apparently, and look what happened!
One thing to understand is that this condition is rare. The other thing to know was that he was drinking 10 to 20 ounces per day for 10 years, and using salt as an absorption accelerant. The final thing to know is that despite the appearance, there was no actual health issues that came from this condition. His death at the age of 62 was smoking related. Basically, the point is that abusing anything can lead to undesirable side effects.
One of the main reasons I got it was because silver is a proven natural antibiotic. I don’t know what the future holds. I do know there are many more cases of medical antibiotics not working, and who knows if they will ever be in limited supply. This, to me, was a prudent step to prepare for uncertain times.
Just thought I’d share.
