Pure colloidal silver has a broad range of applications as an antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral. It is often a surprise for people who have tried every other means of conquering a difficult health problem like sinusitis to find that something this natural, simple and inexpensive can do more to help them than any pharmaceutical or other remedy they’ve tried.
This is often the case for people who suffer from sinus conditions like sinusitis, which produces symptoms that can range in severity from being simply uncomfortable to debilitating.
What is Sinusitis?
Sinusitis is a fancy word for sinus irritation or inflammation, which affects millions of people and costs millions more dollars in pharmaceuticals and downtime from work, annually. The symptoms mimic those of the common cold, except they don’t usually subside after just three to four days.
There are three categories of sinus problems:
- Chronic, lasting several weeks, months or even years.
- Acute, which is characterized by a sudden onset lasting several days or a few weeks.
- Recurrent, which is typical of seasonal occurrences and may last a few days to a few weeks until the irritant or allergen dissipates from the environment.
The sinuses are passages which run inside the bones of your skull and are located around the eyes, forehead, ears, and near the jaw. When you encounter an irritant or allergen, you body produces mucus in these passages to protect them. If this mucous doesn’t drain properly, it leads to pressure and pain. The trapped mucous becomes a breeding ground for harmful pathogens leading to sinus infection.
Fortunately, colloidal silver is an excellent defense against these irritants and pathogens.
What are the Symptoms of Sinusitis?
The first symptoms are usually sneezing and stuffiness in your nose and possibly some pressure in your ears. Pain can in the forehead, the jaw line, the eye sockets, and even in your teeth. Sometimes this pain moves from place to place. A common indication of sinus congestion is pain that is worse on one side of the head than the other.
You may also experiences a diminished sense of taste and smell. If the sinus congestion or infection goes into your ears, you will probably experience pain in your ears along with dizziness and, possibly, greater difficulty hearing.
How to Treat Sinusitis Naturally, Inexpensively and Safely with Colloidal Silver
If you were to go to a conventional doctor, he would probably want to treat your sinusitis with sinus pills to dry the mucous in your sinus passages and, in the case of infection, he would prescribe antibiotics, which you would have to take for one or two weeks. These pharmaceuticals have unpleasant side effects and there are inherent dangers involved in taking pharmaceutical antibiotics, which involve your body becoming increasingly resistant and a host to mutant strains of bacteria.
Your doctor will probably not prescribe you anything to help with the actual cause of your sinus condition. According to a Mayo Clinic Study, cited in an article entitled, May Clinic Study Implicates Fungus as cause of Chronic Sinusitis,” at Science Daily, most cases of chronic sinusitis are caused by fungal infections.
Colloidal silver is a safe and effective all-natural antibiotic and anti-fungal, which can be used as a rinse for the sinuses. Pure colloidal silver in 10 to 15 ppm can also be taken orally as an antibiotic. Experts say when colloidal silver is made properly, using a colloidal silver generator specially calibrated to create 1 to 10 nanometer-sized silver particles, it is safe to use as directed, and has no known side effects.
To use colloidal silver orally, many experts recommend taking one or two tablespoons in the morning or evening. You can drink it undiluted or add it to water or juice.
The two most common methods of administering colloidal silver directly into the sinus passages involves spraying it or snorting it.
To use colloidal silver as a nasal spray, you will need a little bottle with a spray top. You can purchase 2-ounce amber bottles at many health food stores, which are ideal for this purpose. Carefully, pour pure colloidal silver into the clean bottle and cap it with the clean sprayer top. To avoid spilling you may want to use a small funnel.
To administer your colloidal silver nasal spray, cock your head to one side and spray the colloidal silver directly into each nostril.
To snort colloidal silver, insert a few drops into your nasal passages using a dropper bottle or inhale a few drops into your nostrils through a straw.
If you find either of these methods uncomfortable, you can add a couple of tablespoons of colloidal silver to a neti pot and gently bathe your sinus passages. This has the effect of soothing your sinuses and delivering the colloidal silver to the places where you most need it to go very quickly.
The idea is to get colloidal silver deep into your sinus passages where it can neutralize the infection-causing fungal or bacterial pathogens.
Snort, spray or otherwise bathe your sinus passages with colloidal silver two or three times per day until your symptoms subside. This may take a few days or a week, depending on the severity of your condition.
Colloidal silver is a natural substance with a long history of use as healing agent. According to the experts, it has no known interactions with medications. The statements in this article have not been evaluated by the FDA or other government entity.
It is important to use colloidal silver responsibly. There’s a lot of controversy about safe doses because there are no official established guidelines as there are for most other nutritional supplements. Fortunately, an excellent, free 16-page report helps to answer this question, “What’s the ‘Safest’ Daily Dosage for Colloidal Silver.” It is available exclusively from The Silver Edge.
The author of this report, natural health journalist Steve Barwick, has done extensive research on colloidal silver. He also wrote the 547-page book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, a veritable compendium of information on this subject, which also gives you appropriate dosages and uses for colloidal silver.
