Singing the praises of colloidal silver!

I love the stuff!

I have been able to fight off many a sinus infection with colloidal silver nasal spray, I have a generator to produce my own. But having sterile solution in a nasal spray package is so handy.

To produce my own, for oral or topical application, I heat a gallon of reverse osmosis water to boiling, add a scant pinch of sea salt(bet you haven't heard that term since your Grandmother), attach the .999% pure silver wires(12 gauge and NOT sterling(sterling is an alloy, you want pure))to the generator. Then set a timer for 14 minutes(no longer) and wait for the buzzer.

Store your colloidal silver in either glass or a clean hydrogen peroxide bottle(this is because the H2O2 bottle is inert ionically speaking and the silver ions won't bond to the surface.)

Colloidal silver has helped me clear up both bacterial and yeast(heat rash is a yeast)infections.

By consuming no more than 2 ozs. of silver solution a day, you can keep many of the common diseases from settling in your body. In flu season this can be very beneficial.

After the 2004 hurricane season, a neighbor and I came down with a terrible yeast infection of the skin. It ran from our shoulders to our knees in large raised welts that itched like a son-of-a-gun!

I started making the silver up, we drank and applied the silver, we both did yeast cleanses and increased our acidophilus consumption and changed our diets to starve the yeast. It took a few months, but we both cleared up without the liver damage caused by Difluken.

There are several generators out on the market, if you are interested, do your research and go for it.
Or go to this site; http://www.endtimesreport.com/Colloidal_Silver_Generator.html to learn how to make your own generator. Which is like the one I have.

colloidal silver helped zgirl get over an infected tooth until we got to the dentist - the doctor's office wanted $85. for the office visit and of course we would have had to purchase a prescription.

great stuff.

we found a lady who makes it up the road - AND she gives it away!

i like free...of course i left her a pretty good tip...

nanc said...

p.s. - i've taken the liberty of deleting the first post - it was for our information only.

The Merry Widow said...

S'al'right! I agree, and this stuff is terrific!
I wonder how Cubical found us?

nanc said...

it's probably in one of our profiles - i wasn't going to add it to mine until we were up and running - guess nowztha time.

The Merry Widow said...

I had mine hidden too, IT'S ALL BROOKE'S FAULT! LOL!

Brooke said...

Holy Smokes! I've never heard of the stuff; I'm going to have to look into it!

Dang. So much for my career as a spy...

Jungle Mom said...

I could have used this information awhile ago. Looks like a great blog!

The Merry Widow said...

We just started it, actually it was supposed to open on May 5th, but a few things came up, or went down(like Nanc's back). So we were delaying the start.
JM-I'll bet you have a peck of ideas...drop them in the "mail-slot" and we will be happy to publish them!

The Merry Widow said...

Brooke-There has been bad publicity because of some people's lack of good sense! So they ended up blue, but as a nurse, you know of the use of silver as an antimicrobial agent.
The UK is going toward using curtains with a thread in them to kill MRSA. And bandages are being manufactured for post surgery dressings.
And don't forget the use of silver nitrate to kill STD's in baby's eyes and ears after birth!

David Schantz said...

I just found out about the site, very interesting. Z http://gollygeeez.blogspot.com/ gave you up. I would say welcome but I've heard of all the contributors before so this isn't new to you.

I havn't used colloidal silver in quite a while. I quit because the price of store bought went sky high. I've caught colds and the flu every since I quit using it.

The instructions for the home made generator were well done, a big help. All I have to do now is come up with some sky high priced gas so I can go get the parts and I'll be back on the road to better health.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Brooke said...

They put the nitrate in the baby's eyes now, no matter what. It also kills normal bacteria in the birth canal.

It used to be my job to lay the stuff out for the neonate nurse.

The Merry Widow said...

There has also been some very good results in elderly patients that have sores or breaks that won't heal. They have put low level silver electrodes in the area, almost miraculous!
Welcome, David! I thought that that was the best homemade generator I've seen. And it is just about identical to the one I bought years ago. Which still works!

kevin said...

Thanks for the Gas Buddy link and good luck with the new blog.

The Merry Widow said...

You are welcome, Kevin!
I figured that that one would come in handy, for everybody.

The Frank Family said...

I'm with Brooke here. I've never heard of this product.

Pinky said...

TMW, great post!!
I've been dealing with candida skin rash for 18 frickin' months! TONS of acidophilus...NO simple carbs (lost nearly 40 pounds), tried three-lac, cut milk out, tried just about everything. Ugh. Docs think I'm looney. I've developed 'immunity' to Diflucan...my liver hates me. (This really is TMI, huh?)

I don't think I could make the silver myself, but I could definitely benefit from it...for the skin as well as the sinuses.

Excellent! I've had it recemmended by numerous health food employees, but just thought they were trying to sell me somethin'. ;-)

Thanks!

nanc said...

brooke - is that also the stuff they make the cream out of for burns? if so, i've used it and it's wonderful!

The Merry Widow said...

I don't know about burns. But it is very useful.
Another excellent medicine chest must is tea tree oil...you can even get rid of canker sores in 24 hrs. or less!

tmw
I'll write on that goodie next time.

The Merry Widow said...

Pinky-Cut out potatoes of all kinds, vinegar(means mustard too), peanuts, then if your hubby is handy...have him make you one. It is easy to operate, and if you do a gallon at a time, you will have plenty for a while.
Drink 2 ozs. a day and swab some on the rash.
On the 5th day you will have to stay home, you would be amazed(and horrified) with what you will kill off! Your health should improve greatly.
Check at your health food store, they may have candida cleanses, you may have to take it for a while, but it will drive it out of your system...rice crackers!

The Frank Family said...

My favorite two healing ideas are honey and vitamin E. Honey is great for colds and coughs and general allergies and what not. Vitamin E is great for canker sores or cuts and scrapes or making surgical incisions nearly disappear. I get the gel-tabs and break them open and put the vitamin E directly on whatever.

The Merry Widow said...

Honey is also good for sores that won't heal.

tmw

Brooke said...

I don't know about the burns. We've got a Shriner's just a stone's throw away, so most of the hospitals around here just do emergency care and transfer.

Whiskey in a hot glass (just a weeeeee bit, don't worry) with honey in it is one of my faves for sore throats. Anesthetizes and soothes at the same time!

Of course, this one is a no-no for the children! ;)

nanc said...

looks like we'll have to recruit frank family into the fold, yes?

The Merry Widow said...

My Dad used to do equal parts; brandy, honey and lemon. Warm and take 2 tbsps. at a time.
As he used to say; "The lemon juice cuts the mucus and gives you Vit. C, the honey coats the throat and the brandy makes sure you don't give a d^&n!"
Not for ANY children...

Karen said...

I'm lovin' the stuff I'm learnin'! Keep up the great work. Here on Z's recommendation.

Z said...

Honey is great for a lot of things, particularly with cinnamon, apparently..mmm As Lucy would say "it's so TASTY, too!"

David...try AirBorne IMMEDIATELY upon the slightest sore throat, too. My husband calls it a miracle drug.
Lemon, too..a staple in my family growing up. Egg Lemon soup is THE best healing soup; my mother makes it for the sons-in-law who've dubbed it "SICK SOUP" because it's the cure! (and yes.."so TASTY, too...so, try your VEGAMITAVITAMINS.."!!

heidianne jackson said...

wow, this is an awesome tip - going to get this figured out this weekend with the hope that it will cure my husband's sinus issues. thanks guys!

oh, i've linked this site to mine, too!!!

Freedomnow said...

What the heck is going on here?!!!

You guys are snorting silver? Its sounds like a bunch of alchemists gone wild!!!!

Congrats on yer new blog...

The Merry Widow said...

Heidianne-Airborne...3xs a day
colloidal silver nose spray...morning and evening
antioxidant complex(A,C,E)...morning and evening
Mucinex or Walgreen's brand...3xs a day
Zicam...either Cold & Flu or Extreme Congestion...2xs a day
neosporin plus, or generic brand, rub over sinusis or swollen glands, yes it is absorbed by the skin, provides some relief and the antibiotics in them helps fight the infection.
I used to get sinus infections so bad, I would get bronchitis or pnuemonitis. No more!
And the beauty of it is, you can start immediately without waitting to see a doctor or getting a prescription.
I keep these things on hand and jump on the first symptoms, so it never gets so bad!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Z said...

"SNORTING SILVER!" THERE's a good name for a blog! "Hi ho, Silver...awaaaay!"

The Merry Widow said...

HJ-Hope it helps.
Fern-You are a trip!
Z-Have at it...

nanc said...

our tmw - a metal pusher...

where DOES it end???

The Merry Widow said...

My basic bread recipe?

tmw

Pinky said...

TMW, can you share the silver nose spray recipe with me? How much silver to saline ratio? I had a sinus infection two weeks ago that led to a fever of 103, then led to bronchitis...trip to ER.


I have a sinus infection right now and so far I'm just using my neti pot. :-(

The Merry Widow said...

I got the nasal spray at the health food store(run by Christians). And it is not saline in nature. Just the silver ions, there is a throat spray also.
The colloidal silver made by the generator shouldn't have a lot of salt in it, it may cause the silver ions to drop out of the solution.
If you have the things I wrote about above(for Heidianne), or even a couple, USE THEM!
The neosporin plus works wonderfully when rubbed into the skin over the infected sinus.
If you have swollen glands, rub the ointment over them also.
And may G*D heal you quickly! This season is hard on me too!

nanc said...

pinky - check to make sure you're not working in an old building that may have had asbestos in it - i worked in one for over five years and had a sinus infection at least four times per year - since i left over ten years ago, i've not had a full fledged sinus infection - funny thing, EVERYBODY who transferred there WERE NEVER sick until they started working there!

Incognito said...

Came here through Z... Am an advocate of alternative medicine.. I have my rheumatoid arthritis under control solely through herbs and supplements.. i also have another blog devoted to alternative healing http://youcanheal.blogspot.com, that said.. there have been some problems with overuse of colloidal silver. There are people who have turned grayish/blue from overuse. Just be careful and research, though I'm sure you aleady have.

Congrats and good luck with the blog.

nanc said...

incognito - hope you don't mind, but we'll link up to you - we're going to try and keep our sidebar loaded with those of likeminded blogs - not to negate the blogs we enjoy on a daily basis for other reasons - we're hoping to build a network of people like us - concerned with saving a few bucks and resorting to alternative resources without being called "greenies" - the government will not tell us what we should do when we already know what's good and right for us.

Pinky said...

TMW, Thanks! I'm going to the health food store tomorrow. I do think hubby can rig me up a generator, as well. I've been sick since I had a bout of Stevens Johnson Syndrome, so I need to take better care.

Nanc, the building is brand new and I'm only there once a week or so...I think it's my home! eeek!
We had new carpet put in last year and a thousand square feet added on. TONS of vapors, etc. I could feel it, smell it, and I knew it was making me sick. I should've insisted that they 'air out' the carpet before hand. Oh, and I wish I had researched better flooring choices. :0( oh well.

Oh, I'm so excited about this blog!
Right up my alley!!!! I've always been into the alternative medicine / herbs, and other "green" methods, but didn't want to be dictated to.
OK, I'll stop now. ;-)
Thanks, y'all!

Beamish said...

Silver plays no known natural biological role in humans, and possible health effects of silver are a subject of dispute. Silver itself is not toxic but most silver salts are, and some may be carcinogenic.

Silver and compounds containing silver (like colloidal silver) can be absorbed into the circulatory system and become deposited in various body tissues leading to a condition called argyria which results in a blue-grayish pigmentation of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Although this condition does not harm a person's health, it is disfiguring and usually permanent. Argyria is rare, and mild forms are sometimes mistaken for cyanosis.


You'll be healthy, but you'll look like an alien.

;)

The Merry Widow said...

Mr. B.-That's ONLY if you are stupid about it...as in, "If a little is doing me good, a lot must really help!" That kind of thinking gets you into trouble in anything!
I've used colloidal silver for years, and there is no trace of blue in me.
You don't take it ALL the time either.
I suggest when you first take it, use it for 7-10 days, you will be suprised at what your body will get rid of, especially on day 5.
Incognito-We have been without health insurance for years! So I had to do something positive. I also have ra and psoriasis, I do use topical prescriptions for the psoriasis, but I also hit it with supplements.
After I went the more natural route, my ra has not been the problem it used to be, I may get bouts of aching, but not the swelling and redness. I can work through the aches, and even they aren't as debilitating as they used to be!
Pinky-The neti pot is very useful, but if there are mold spores in your house...is your mucus an odd color just before and after an infection? In California I used to be triggered by one mold that was pinkish-peach in color. Had to bleach out the humidifier for my daughter all the time. The mold in that and my mucus were the same color going into and coming out of an infection.
Start noting what changes signal trouble.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw
BTW-The way I got into colloidal minerals was the fact that my late and I were trying a 22 mineral, colloidal mix. The next flu bug that came along(we were testing it before giving it to our children)our 2 both got sick and we didn't. The children went on it immediately. Cut the flu's legs out from under it.

Steve Harkonnen said...

Wow, this is like helpful hints from Heloise or something...nice work!

The Merry Widow said...

Thanks, Steve. We wanted to do something that would be helpful, inexpensive and less tangled with "official" business.
Besides, overuse of antibiotics has caused more problems, of a worse nature. I know a doctor who is caught on the antibiotics/yeast merry-go-round. She should know better! But she got trapped...and she told me that Difluken was only to be used one time, for chronically ill or terminal patients...well guess what, my doctor had started me on the merry-go-round WITH Difluken, doubleed dose...oooops!
I got off it the more natural way, and am healthier for it!

Z said...

I'm so glad to see incognito came and you're linking up with her. She's terrific and smart and good at this holistic stuff, too.
Heck, maybe I'll even learn something??!!

I hope to see a piece here on lowering cholesterol without statins. And I hope it inludes that bacon/spinach pasta from the Frank Family! miracles CAN happen, RIGHT?

The Merry Widow said...

Z-Red Yeast Rice...and check out some of the mixtures that will scour out the blood vessels like Roto-Rooter!
I can't think of the names of some of these things, will go look them up.
But a really good health food store will have a trained person who can guide you on what to take...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw
BTW- Red Yeast Rice is where they get lovistatin from, BUT because it still has everything else left in, the effects are milder and mitigated by everything else!
