Here’s some lovely first-hand advice from a rescue centre:
I have used DMSO topically on humans ,horses, most of my animals and now been adding the DMSO into the CDS for the distemper.Apart from their smelly breath, they all alot better.I have been adding CDS to all their water indoors so that the chickens,ducks,dogs,birds,geese and cats get it and to the horses food in the morning and evening.I have “played”with the doses for the dogs to see how far I can push the CDS before they get queasy.
This is all amazing and I am so glad I found the CDS as using the MMS was rather difficult in dosing so many dogs ,with the CDS it is not as bad. I have completed a course of 4 weeks of with 8 hours a day of CDS for 17 dogs. I am carrying on but have reduced it to 6 hours every hour.
The Distemper specifics :
I started using CDS when we realised that we were dealing with a more vicious virus than just common everyday virus in a dog. I started with the protocol 1000 to get their bodies used to the CDS building up to the protocol 2000 and then to the 3000 – using -+ 15 -18 drops per dog in the beggining,and I was using DMSO with every CDS dose. At that stage I was prepared to over dose the dogs and treat dehydration than treat distemper and watch my dogs have seizures and literally fade away under my nose.(we lost 3 dogs as we started with the MMS / CDS treatment with the neurological side effects of distemper)
I maintained a course of dosing for 9 hours every day for 4 weeks , the same protocol one would use for HIV (dosing dogs of different sizes became a challenge as we have dogs from dachshund sizes to Weimeraner and Labrador size) and dosing 17 dogs daily, for 9 hours a day for 4 solid weeks was exhausting . I had to watch for nausea , vomiting and runny tummies daily. Once the 4 weeks came to a final close and I was satisfied that the dogs could only go forward and not backwards, I reduced the dosing to 6 hourly with DMSO, watching them like a hawk for ANY side effects of twitching,snotty nose etc.
We are currently on day 4 on the first week on the 6 hourly doses. We have completed a whole 4 weeks of dosing with no relapses and not another heart breaking death …… so we can only be on the right road now!!! I will maintain a steady dosing pattern for another few weeks to just MAKE SURE we are all healed and that we cannot encounter any form of relapse.
I will reduce it every week until we are on a maintenance level (as long as there are no relapses). I gave up my job to be with my dogs through this devastating time.
I have now put CDS into my horses’ food, dogs’ water, cats’, ducks’, geese, pig, birds’ and chickens’ water on a daily basis and i will never be without CDS again!!!!!
Thank you to Yvonne,Shannon and Gordon for helping me out with questions and answers and numerous frantic deliveries when I couldnt …and still can’t leave the farm due to the hourly dosing!! If it weren’t for you three and countless prayers……. I wouldn’t have a single dog left by my side!
This is interesting. After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.
Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes. But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. PMS: Forget the pills – eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
200 students at a Twickenham school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.. Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
Many other cultures see bananas as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature. So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’
Articles of Health are the writings of Robert O. Young D.Sc., Ph.D., based upon his theory that the human organism is alkaline by design and acidic by function. He suggests that there is only one sickness and one disease which is caused by an over acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking. There is no way to have health and acidity — health and alkalinity is the way!

A New Study:
Acidic Aluminum Adjuvant In Vaccines
Transfers to the Brain!
Newly published research by Keele Conference scientists shows that aluminum adjuvant in vaccines transfers to the brain. They have documented the path from injection site to the brain, and that once in the brain, it persists. Newborns, the elderly, and people with a certain genetic variation are particularly at risk.
by Heidi Stevenson
A new study adds a major link in the association of aluminum adjuvants in vaccines with neurological disorders. It demonstrates the pathway along which aluminum in vaccine adjuvants is transferred from the injection site to the brain, where it persists indefinitely. They have also identified a likely carrier and a means by which the process occurs.
The study is exhaustive, eliminating a wide array of options that might mitigate against their findings. They also focused on two groups to determine if their findings indicate that they’re at particular risk. They include newborns and people with a certain genetic variant. On top of that, the elderly may be at significantly higher risk for aluminum adjuvant-induced neurotoxic harm.
Please note that variant does not mean defective! We all have genes that are not like those of the majority. That does not indicate a defect, only a distinction. Viva la difference!
Reason for the Study
Nanoparticles are not as new in medicine as generally believed. The study states:
The use of nanomaterials in humans is not as contemporary as is recently portrayed. For decades, alum, a nanocrystalline compound formed of aluminum oxyhydroxide, has been the most commonly used adjuvant in vaccines.
In macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF), “alum-loaded macrophages [are] typically detected at sites of previous injections (up to >12 years later), resulting in a specific granuloma called macrophagic myofasciitis or MMF.” *
CCL2 is a cytokine that recruits monocytes, memory T cells, and dendritic cells to sites of inflammation. Earlier work has shown that 252 ASIA patients had an increase in circulating CCL2, along with a variation in the CCL2 gene. It’s also known that:
Danger signals from the CCL2 cytokine draw monocytes, which causes them to convert to macrophages before migrating to lymph nodes.
Dendritic cells (DCs) transfer antigens to a large network of distant dendritic cells, also known as antigen-presenting cells (APCs).
Alum injections are known to incite “significant changes linked to activation of the innate immune system in distant organs”.
These facts resulted in this study to detemine whether injected nanomaterials, most particularly alum, could be moved to distant organs through phagocytosis and CCL2 signaling.
Experiments were done on laboratory mice. A fluorescent surrogate for alum particles, fluorescent latex beads (FLBs), was used to assess movement and distribution of intramuscularly injected materials. Morin stain and particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE) were used to assess movement of alum hybrids, Al-Rho, which match the particle size of injected adjuvant aluminum. Using graphics from the study, I will attempt to explain what was done, though not all aspects of the study will be covered.
Standard C57BL/6 lab mice were injected in the tibialis anterior muscle (equivalent to a calf muscle in humans) with an alum-containing vaccine at a dose equivalent to that given to humans, with the amount calculated by an FDA standard. As is intended with an adjuvant, an intense localized inflammation ensued, which lasted until day 4 post-injection, when it stabilized. The local aluminum concentration decreased rapidly until day 4, remaining stable until day 21.
Aluminum-loaded macrophages were found encased in granulomas from day 4 post-injection, as shown in this image. The left-hand image shows a photo of a granuloma, and the right-hand image is a PIXE graphic demonstrating the high aluminum load. (Yellow shows the greatest load.)
Signs of aluminum were found in the spleens and brains of these mice, as shown in these graphics:
Photographic images show spleen (left) and brain (right) tissues, with areas of PIXE imagery indicated with bright pink squares. The PIXE images showing aluminum loading are on the right side of each photo.
The graph on the left shows the percent of areas in the brains found to have aluminum spots. Notice the small number in unvaccinated mice. The numbers shown on days 21 and 365, one year post-vaccination, demonstrate that the aluminum does not dissipate. (The authors believe that the bar for day 180 is an anomaly, caused by either “interindividual variations in aluminum handling or to sampling problems related to variable proportions of grey and white matter in the randomly scanned areas”.
The aluminum that makes its way to the brain is persistent.
Movement of Alum Surrogates
The image to the right shows the movement of FLBs by macrophages from the injection site to interstitial spaces in the muscle around it. Notice the bright red slash in the image to the left showing the fluorescing surrogates for alum, FLBs (fluorescent latex beads) one hour after injection. The right-hand image shows how they’ve been dispersed by macrophages four days later.
The image to the left is a graph of the number of cells loaded with FLBs (surrogate alum) found in popliteal (knee area) lymph nodes (P-DLN) and inguinal (groin) lymph nodes (I-DLN) at one hour, day 4, and day 21. Notice that movement of FLBs to lymph nodes is dramatic by day 4. Other images (not shown) document that this movement can be accounted for by inflammatory dendritic cells and macrophages that are derived from monocytes.
Another related part of this section of the experiment utilized injection of a compound known to inhibit FLB movement by phagocytes to popliteal lymph nodes. At day 4 movement to popliteal lymph nodes was down by 32%, and to inguinal lymph nodes by 69%. This treatment resulted in significant reduction of FLB in lymph nodes, further confirming that macrophages are the primary means of transportation to lymph nodes.
After moving to lymph nodes, the FLB alum surrogates moved to the spleen, as shown in the image to the right. The left-hand graph shows the number of FLBs in the spleen peaking at day 21 and decreasing to a little over half that number on day 90. Compare this with the previous graph, which shows FLBs leaving the lymph nodes between days 4 and 21. This increase in FLBs in the spleen between these same dates indicates that they’re moving from lymph nodes to the spleen.
The question then is: How does that happen? There is no connection between lymph nodes and the spleen. However, if you look at the graph on the right, you can see that FLBs are found in the blood, too. The authors surmise that the FLBs must travel in macrophages through the thoracic duct, the largest lymph vessel, which releases most of the body’s lymph into the blood system. Thus, macrophages carrying the alum-surrogate FLBs are transported from lymph nodes into the blood system, and then arrive in the spleen.
The authors wrote, “Cerebral translocation of FLBs was delayed but relentless until the d90 endpoint in C57 mice,” and the graph to the left shows it. Only a small amount of the alum surrogate injected into the standard C57 lab mice reached the brain on day 4, but you can readily see how the pace picks up by day 21, and more than doubles again by day 90, the endpoint of the study on C57 mice.
The CX3CR1GFP/+ mice, indicated by the white bars, have an inserted gene that allows visualization of the microglia, which are a particular kind of macrophage found in the brain and spinal cord. As you can see, the FLBs were still increasing on day 180, the study’s endpoint for these mice.
The image to the right shows FLBs in the brainstem of a CX3CR1GFP/+ mouse. The inset is a photo of a stained slice of brain with their locations indicated by dots. The larger image is of an unstained section on day 21 showing the FLBs located mostly just under the pia membrane, i.e., on the surface of the brainstem.
Preventing FLBs from Transporting to Organs
Some C57 mice were given the FLB injection intravenously into the tail, rather than into the tibial anterior leg muscle. The result is shown in the graph on the left. Notice that hardly any FLBs ended up in the brain by either day 21 or 90. Clearly, little, if any, immune response resulting in macrophages engulfing FLBs is triggered by an intravenous injection.
After ablating (destroying) popliteal and inguinal lymph nodes, the number of FLBs reaching the blood, spleen, and brain was reduced by 60-80%. The graph to the left shows the percentage of FLBs remaining compared to controls. The number that reached the spleen was only about 20% and the number reaching the brain was about 40%. This indicates that movement of FLBs by macrophages to local lymph nodes is part of the process for movement of most FLBs—and by analogy, most alum—from injection site to organs, including the brain.
One of the concerns in clinical procedures involving toxic elements on newborn babies is their weak blood-brain barrier. Mice with a leaky blood-brain barrier, called mdx, were used to see what happens in this situation. The graph to the right shows that, by day 21 the number of FLBs reaching the brain of an mdx mouse with a leaky blood-brain barrier is significantly greater than in a normal C57 mouse, and that this remains a problem over time.
Images from the muscles, spleen, and brain chimeric (genetically engineered) mice with a green fluorescing protein confirmed these findings.
Confirmation: FLBs Correlate with Alum Adjuvant
The Morin stain for aluminum showed “Al-Rho particles were avidly phagocytosed after i.m. injection and formed intracellular agglomerates similar in size to the vaccine adjuvant”, as can be seen by the clusters in the “Vaccine” and “Al-Rho” images to the left. These images are similar to the first image of an aluminum-induced granuloma shown above.
The graphs below show Al-Rho movement from lymph nodes to spleen, and spleen to brain:
The Al-Rho nanohybrid surrogates for alum showed up prominently in the popliteal and inguinal lymph nodes, which are nearest to the injection site, by day 4, as shown in the left-hand graph. Most have moved by day 21, showing up in the spleen, as you can see by the middle graph. By day 90, you can see that a significant number of Al-Rho have left the spleen. However, from the graph on the right, you can see that they’ve been moving from the spleen to the brain. The movement is strikingly similar to that of the FLBs.
Effect of CCL2 Cytokines in Alum Distribution
The CCL2 cytokine is suspected to be at the center of some ASIA disorders because research has shown that ASIA patients have high amounts in their blood, along with a genetic variant related to CCL2. Mice bred to be deficient in the CCL2 cytokine were used to see what effect they have on distribution of the alum surrogate, Al-Rho, to lymph nodes and organs.
In the left-hand graph of the image to the right, you can see that there is significantly less movement of Al-Rho from the site of an intramuscular injection to organs. Compared with controls, 65% the amount of Al-Rho is found in the nearest lymph node at day 4, and even less, 34%, gets to the inguinal lymph node. On day 21, only 15% as much is found in the blood, 29% in the spleen, and only 18% as much Al-Rho is found in the brains of CCL2-deficient mice compared to controls.
The graph to the right of “CCL2 Deficient Mice” shows the amount of Al-Rho found in the same kind of CCL2-deficient mice after they’ve been injected with rCCL2, a recombinant form of CCL2 that was used because no other version is available. The results are dramatically different. First, note that the y-axis scale is dramatically different, running up to 600%, instead of only 80%. By day 21, the rCCL2 injections increased distribution of Al-Rho to the blood by 274%, the spleen by 180%, and the brain by 341% as compared to controls.
These experiments, along with others not described here, document that more CCL2 cytokines—which draw monocytes and dendritic cells to the site of inflammation—than normal are directly associated with the distribution of alum to the brain.
This study has demonstrated that aluminum adjuvant particles can be transported to the brain through CCL2 signaling that brings monocytes to the site of vaccine administration. The route is shown to be:
First to the nearest lymph nodes.
Through the lymph system’s thoracic duct.
Through the thoracic duct into the bloodstream.
Through the blood to the spleen and possibly partially directly to the brain.
From the spleen to the brain.
This process appears to occur in all mice, though at a slow rate. However, in mice with high levels of CCL2 cytokines, the process is speeded up dramatically. The study also documented that an inefficient blood-brain barrier, as is found in the youngest babies, allows significantly more alum through to the brain.
The toxic potential of aluminum is high. This study has demonstrated that injecting alum adjuvants with vaccines results in transferrence to the brain, where it persists. Most people have a high tolerance to alum. However, there are limits in anyone. In the case of people with high levels of CCL2—such as those with a genetic variant leading to high CCL2 levels, as found in ASIA patients—even small amounts of injected alum can be disastrous.
Consideration needs also to be given to the association of aluminum in the brain with Alzheimer’s disease, which is afflicting an accelerating percentage of people as they age.
As the study’s authors point out:
It is likely that good tolerance to alum may be challenged by a variety of factors including overimmunization, BBB immaturity, individual susceptibility factors, and aging that may be associated with both subtle BBB [blood-brain barrier] alterations and a progressiveincrease of CCL2 production.
With the rapidly increasing number of vaccinations recommended, and even mandated, in schedules, along with the increasing number of people suffering from chronic neurological and autoimmune disorders, surely it’s past time to sound the alarm. At the very least, serious research to investigate these risks must be launched.
The researchers involved with the Keele Conference are doing valuable research aimed at identifying and mitigating these risks. It’s long past time for the agencies supposedly concerned with public health to follow these leaders of science.
Three of the study’s authors, Christopher Exley, Romain Gherardi, and François-Jérôme Authier, attended the 10thKeele Conference titled, “Illuminating and Elucidating Aluminium’s Exposome: From Geochemistry to Neurochemistry, From Microbe to Man”:
Dr. Exley was the conference administrator and has published a large number of studies on the topic, not to mention being involved in several of the studies and references of this conference.
Dr. Gherardi presented his latest work on macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF), a new vaccine-associated disease, indicating that the cytokine CCL2 is not simply a biomarker of MMF inflammation, but is also associated with its pathophysiology. He suggested that CCL2 should be investigated in relation to other autoimmune/inflammatory syndromes (ASIA).
Dr. Authier reported on a new non-invasive method to diagnose MMF, which has hitherto been diagnosable only via muscle biopsy. He also suggested that MMF is probably more prevalent than currently realized.

Jim Humble’s MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) has evolved into a much easier product with the following benefits :
no having to activate drops – it’s already done for you
mix up a day’s hourly dosages in one bottle
no potential nausea
super fast acting
ability to take high dosages without any negative effects
Ta ra …….. introducing ………
CDS: Chlorine Dioxide Solution
What is CDS? In a nutshell, this is the new way of making MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution). In time, further information regarding this multi-functional product will be made available. Problems with MMS, such as the taste and nausea are eliminated with CDS, enabling one to take up to 24 drops an hour with no side effects. It tastes just like water. *Mixing CDS for a single dose: We recommend starting with 10 drops and gradually increasing, if you wish to, to 24 drops. Always listen to your body and your instinct. *Mixing CDS for an 8 hour period: You will need an empty one litre bottle for this protocol. Use a marking pen to divide the 1 litre bottle into eight sections – this will indicate your eight doses to be taken hourly for Day 1. From the 200 ml bottle pour 2,5 ml into the 1 litre bottle. Fill the bottle with water. Every hour, pour out one of the eight measures and drink. If no side effects are experienced after day 1, it is possible to increase the number of drops gradually to 192 drops per day (*8 ml of CDS in the one litre of water). Establish the level that you are comfortable with. Note: 24 drops = 1 ml .. 8 doses per day = 8 ml * a measuring cup is provided *Spray bottle (handbag size) Using the 50 ml dropper bottle, add 10 – 20 drops of CDS, fill with water and shake to mix. For topical application, always test the solution on a soft part of your skin. If there is any reaction, reduce the number of drops until there is no reaction.
Applications : Deodorant; for skin problems; to disinfect public toilet seats; keep toothbrush clean; treat dandruff etc. Keep in your handbag or car cubbyhole (out of the sun). This will last for a month before needing to be refreshed.
*Teeth and mouth hygiene : Put 5 ml CDS into 50 ml of water (a small wineglass is good), brush teeth and rinse as usual.
1. Chlorine Dioxide Solution Kit: R 185.00 ex. VAT (includes 30 ml dropper bottle/empty spray bottle/200 ml CDS/measuring cup) 2. CDS 30ml: R 21.00 ex. VAT 3. CDS 200ml Top Up: R 140.00 ex. VAT
* Important notes : *1. Anti-oxidants dilute the benefits of CDS so it’s best to avoid them altogether whilst taking CDS. That would include tea, coffee, vitamin C and fruit juices. Otherwise take only after three hours of a CDS dose. *2. Please be careful when decanting because CDS may stain surfaces and clothes *3. Ladies please note that CDS may negate the benefits of contraceptives.
Will CDS hurt beneficial gut flora?
The oxygen potential of Chlorine Dioxide is .95 volts.
Oxygen is 2.30 and oxygen doesn’t hurt good tissue.
Chlorine dioxide is a “weak” oxidizer but strong against the pathogens which have a lower oxygen potential . Other strong oxidizers that come in at (1.7) and (2.05) DO and can hurt good tissue. They’re just too strong

Published February 24, 2013, filed under HEALTH
Dr. Maurice Hilleman made astounding revelations in an interview that was cut from The Health Century — the admission that Merck drug company vaccines had been injecting dangerous viruses into people worldwide. Bear in mind that Dr. Hilleman was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program. He developed over three dozen vaccines, more than any other scientist in history. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. He received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. Hilleman was one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.
Dr. Mercola’s Comments:
I think it’s important to remember history when it comes to vaccines, especially in light of current developments.
For starters, the HPV vaccine Gardasil, which is being vigorously pushed on unsuspecting young girls and women to theoretically guard against cervical cancer still has never been proven to actually prevent cancer. On the contrary, evidence suggests that under certain circumstances the vaccine increases your risk of precancerous lesions by nearly 45 percent, and an ever increasing number of girls are being seriously injured by this unnecessary vaccine.
As of December 13, 2010, 20,915 adverse reactionshad been reported in the United States alone, including 89 deaths, 297 miscarriages or stillbirths, and 370 reports of abnormal pap smears post vaccination.
All of this from a vaccine that has only been on the market for four years!
Making matters worse, as of 2009 the US FDA approved Gardasil for use on young boys as well, and the first male death has also been reported. In September of last year, a young boy died just eight days after being vaccinated with Gardasil.
So what’s going on here?
Is it possible that vaccines sold by drugmakers like Merck are causing lethal disease? Judging by history, the answer may be yes.
Contaminated Polio Vaccine Responsible for Human Cancer Cases
In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year.
What was it contaminated with?
SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus. The puzzle began in 1994, when Dr. Michele Carbone, a Loyola University researcher, found the virus SV40, which had never before been detected in humans, in half of the human lung tumors he was studying. Since then, 60 different lab studies have confirmed the results, and SV40 has been found in a variety of human cancers, including lung-, brain-, bone-, and lymphatic cancer.
At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population.
But in the censored interview with Dr. Maurice Hilleman above, Hilleman admits Merck’s responsibility in unleashing this virus via their polio vaccine, as well as the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading the AIDS virus in the same manner.
Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?
Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program.
He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization.
When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what’s now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenzavirus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, “vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20thCentury.”
Vaccines Can Cause the Very Disease They’re Meant to Prevent, and Worse
For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals between 1953 and 1963 and caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.
Still, the FDA and health authorities turned a blind eye.
In addition, just like Gardasil may well increase your risk of cervical cancer rather than reduce it, the live polio vaccine has also been found to cause polio. And, in rare instances the virus in the vaccine has even been known to mutate into a much deadlier version. As reported by MSN News in 2009, genetic analysis has proven such mutated viruses have caused at least seven separate outbreaks in Nigeria.
According to the CDC the last case of wild polio in the US—meaning polio caused naturally and not due to the live polio vaccine—occurred in 1979. From 1980 through 1999, there were NO wild polio cases in the US. Instead we had 144 cases of vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) caused by live oral polio vaccine.
Polio outbreaks in Haiti and the Dominican Republic in 2002 were also traced back to a strain of oral polio vaccine (OPV) that mutated back to virulence.
According to a report by Neil Z. Miller of the Global Vaccine Institute, the live polio virus from the vaccine can remain in your throat for one to two weeks and in your feces for up to two months. So not only is the vaccine recipient at risk, but he or she can potentially spread the disease to others.
In 1999, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended that the United States replace the live-virus vaccine with an inactivated “killed” virus vaccine, which is what remains in use today. However, the inactivated polio virus vaccine has not been without its share of serious side effects either.
Rotavirus Vaccine Contaminated with Pig Virus
Last year, the US FDA suspended the rotavirus vaccine Rotarixafter an independent lab discovered it was contaminated with “a substantial amount” of DNA from the porcine circovirus. In pigs, this virus causes poor growth, weight loss, weakness, enlarged lymph nodes, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, jaundice, stomach ulcers, and sudden death.
As expected, both the FDA and GlaxoSmithKline spokespeople stated that the contaminated Rotarix vaccine carried no known human health risks. However, this is easy to say since there are no studies to confirm or deny a link between these viruses and human disease.
In the case of the polio vaccine, the link between the SV40 virus and human cancer wasn’t discovered until 40 years later! It is actually surprisingly common for vaccines to contain various animal matter, including foreign animal tissues containing genetic material (DNA/RNA).
Once the Rotarix contamination was discovered, new technology was used to test eight infectious attenuated viral vaccines, and in addition to Rotarix, two others contained “unexpected viral sequences.
1. A measles vaccine was found to contain low levels of the retrovirus avian leukosis (AVL) virus—a virus known to cause cancer in chickens. This despite the fact that vaccine manufacturers have been required to use eggs from leucosis-free stocks for over 40 years.
2. Rotateq, Merck’s rotavirus vaccine, was found to contain a virus similar to simian (monkey) retrovirus—the SV40 virus previously linked to human cancer.
Are you willing to bet that they a) know what they’re talking about, and b) are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the potential health dangers of all these vaccines?
HPV Vaccine Now Routine for Boys as Well…
So far, very few parents have voluntarily lined up their sons for the HPV vaccine, but that may soon change. As reported by Paging Dr. Gupta, the American Academy of Pediatrics’ 2011 schedule of recommended routine vaccines for children and teens now includes the HPV vaccine for boys aged 9-18 as well.
Folks, this is a disaster in the making. I shudder to think about the statistics we’ll see in a few years if parents fall for this nonsense.
I urge you to consider the risks already revealed in the four short years since Gardasil came on the market. Already, there are close to 21,000 reported incidents of adverse effects and death, despite the fact that only two out of every 10 women in the approved age group have gotten the vaccine so far.
Add to this the fact that an estimated 90 to 99 percent of all adverse effects are never reported, and the abnormally large risks of the HPV vaccine compared to other vaccines should give most people reason to pause.
Although the FDA ultimately dismisses all side effects, including deaths, as being within the norm, even they have stated that:
“In VAERS, a higher proportion of Gardasil reports were of syncope [fainting] and VTEs [venous thromboembolic events] compared with other vaccines.“
And according to the National Vaccine Information Center, the incidents of miscarriage and still birth events from Gardasil supersede the same event from all other vaccinations.
According to a recent Sane Vax press release on PR Log:
“There is no doubt the vaccine’s safety and efficacy has not been thoroughly investigated. And independent investigation on the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix must be conducted before there are more injuries and deaths.”
What’s most frustrating about this is that not a single one of these 21,000 children and young women needed to be harmed or die.
There are still outstanding questions about whether HPV is or is not the direct cause of cervical cancer. The FDA knows there are many other co-factors involved with the development of cervical cancer, and as of 2003 acknowledged that “most infections (by HPV) are short-lived and not associated with cervical cancer.” The same news release also states that “with proper screening, cervical cancer is avoidable, and if caught early, curable.”
In essence, three years before the HPV vaccine came upon the scene, they knew that what was needed—if anything—was simply improved screening methods, such as regular pap smear testing for girls and women that are far less risky than getting an HPV shot.
Interestingly, and disturbingly, routine pap smears have DECLINED, coinciding neatly with the release of the HPV vaccine. Between 2007 and 2010, cervical cancer screening rates declined by nearly 7 percent, the New York Times reported in December of last year.
When you consider that the HPV vaccine increases your risk of cancer if you’re already infected with certain types of HPV, this is a double-whammy of bad news since rarely, if ever, are girls and women given HPV pap screening before they get an HPV shot.
It’s all madness! Not only is the HPV vaccine is one of the mostunnecessary vaccines on the market, it is also the most dangerous! And now they want to unleash it on young boys, and they’re trying to get it approved for older women as well.
Weighing Benefits versus Risks
Even without a potential contamination scare, there are serious risks to every vaccine. The HPV vaccine is a perfect example. So before vaccinating you really need to be certain that the benefits will outweigh those risks.
In the case of Rotarix, along with RotaTeq (a similar vaccine made by Merck), the benefits are very questionable, especially if you live in the United States or another developed country. Typically, when a child in the United States contracts rotavirus, and most do in infancy and early childhood, all that is required is lots of rest, good nutrition and plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration from diarrhea. This infection also provides natural immunity that will protect your child for life.
Along with showing little benefit for a disease that is typically entirely treatable with fluids and rest, a recent drug review by the FDA found that Rotarix is associated with an increase in pneumonia-related deaths in children, compared to a placebo.
So with this particular vaccine, children living in developed countries like the US are potentially taking on serious risks with what appears to be very little benefit — and that was before the contamination was uncovered.
In the case of the HPV vaccine (Gardasil and Cervarix) the choice is clear. It has a high rate of risk and the potential benefits are unproven:
• In more than 70 percent of cases, HPV clears up on its own within a few weeks or months. In over 90 percent of cases, it’s gone within two years, causing no symptoms or disease.
• Only about 26 percent of girls and women ages 14 to 59 have been exposed to any HPV strain at all; and
• Only 2 percent have been exposed to strains 16 or 18 – the two that Gardasil and Cervarix protect against – meaning this vaccine is completely unnecessary because HPV infection very rarely leads to cancer.
• Women whose partners wore condoms during vaginal intercourse are 70 percent less likely to become infected with HPV. That’s a FAR greater level of protection than you can get from this vaccine!
For more in-depth information about the HPV vaccine along with the top 10 reasons why you don’t need it, please see this previous article.
The moral of the story?
Do your homework before subjecting your children to any vaccine. A great way to get started is to simply use the Search Feature at the top of each of my Web pages and search my site as it contains a litany of research on vaccine safety, and the lack thereof. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) also provides well-referenced information on vaccines and diseases, such as HPV, rotavirus and polio.

From the chemtrails being sprayed over our neighborhoods to the poisons killing our bees and making our food toxic ‘medicine’ we need a way to purge the deadly elixirs of a greedy government, owned and run by corporate interests. For the sake of keeping your attention, I won’t go on ad nauseum about fluoridated water, oil spills, and contaminated air and water due to fracking and mining.
As research since the early 1900s suggests, our bodies simply cannot handle the level of toxicity in our environment without some help, though it was originally designed to cure itself from every conceivable toxin – from heavy metals to the common cold. We have simply burdened the mechanism so profoundly, that the intelligence of the human form is being strained to its acme. We either learn to adapt to the toxic environment that our governments so blatantly support, or we die. We can’t wait for congress or the senate to do the right thing. It’s time to get radical. It’s time to tell your friends about this, even if it is absolutely rabble-rousing.
For some time we have been able to simply ignore, or turn an apathetic ear toward warnings about our food, air and soil being polluted, but when the EPA and FDA, arguably puppet institutions meant to placate farmers and citizens into thinking that their concerns over our war-time and consumer-based lifestyles are benign, states that yes, pesticides ‘are harmful to human health,’ then its time to pay attention. That kind of confession is like telling us the sky is blue. If they didn’t at least state the painfully obvious, it would be very difficult to maintain even a modicum of respect in social and political circles. Most people are already laughing them out of the room.
Our Blood and Bones Contain Over 85,000 Different Toxins
We are a toxic world. Our blood and bones now contain over 85,000 different chemical pollutants. Depleted uranium from bombs, and nuclear energy sites like Fukushima, as well as chemicals as sinister as Agent Orange and toxic mold are now part of our genetic make up. There are too many other toxins to name here. Their names and devastating health effects could fill books. These toxins have seeped into our cells, causing cancer, depression and even insanity.
These pollutants are making our children less intelligent and slowly breaking down our immune systems until they can’t even fight a simple virus. Our hormonal systems are so out of whack from these toxins that both boys and girls are starting puberty way too soon, and fetuses are not developing properly. ADHD, ADD, and Autism are on the rise like never before. Our bodies are fat and tired too, because a toxic body can’t metabolize fats and proteins properly.
Channels of Toxic Elimination
Under better conditions our bodies can get rid of toxins through numerous natural channels:
· Finger and Toe Nails
In lab tests, extremely high levels of toxins can be found in a single strand of hair, even in people who think they live a ‘healthy’ lifestyle – they workout, don’t smoke, try to eat their vegetables, etc. Hair is actually one of the most telling when testing toxicity levels. It even contains remnants of LSD and cocaine in people who used drugs more than six months prior to testing. It also shows traces of aluminum, mercury, bismuth, lead, arsenic, tin, titanium, silver, asbestos, chlorine, tar, uranium and antimony, just to name a few toxins.
If any of the channels of toxin elimination are compromised, it can make the body very ill and eventually cause it to die. Our liver works diligently to eliminate toxins through bile production. Our skin, one of the largest detoxifying channels, is constantly shedding skin cells to rid itself of poison. Our bowels and digestive organs including the bladder and kidneys, large and small intestines also work very hard at keeping us toxin free. The lymph system keeps T-lymphocyte cells circulating to help kill foreign invaders like viruses that come from mold exposure.
Recycling of Toxins Leads to Disease
The problem is that once the body tries to get rid of a toxin, repeatedly trying to make it water soluble, for example, (though this is just one way of eradicating a toxic poison from our systems) so that it can be excreted, then it starts to recycle that toxin in an effort to find some channel, any channel that can expel it properly. This is how disease starts to happen. A Russian scientists and naturopath named Eli Metchnik did extensive research on this phenomenon in 1904.
In Ayurvedic medicine this is called the ‘multiply and localize’ stages of disease development. A toxin starts to move through blood plasma, and into the reproductive cycle of cells and tissues, so wherever you are weakest in your body, you are likely to develop disease. A disease is ‘born’ in the physical body when genetic predisopositions for disease give way to environmental stress – i.e. toxicity.
What Can I do to Detoxify My Body?
Fortunately, there are inexpensive ways to start to cleanse the bowels, hair, skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, and even the cells, but it starts with realizing we are toxic. Then we must take action.
· Install a HEPA filter or a High Quality Air Purifier. You can also spend time in nature, since trees and flowers act as natural air purifiers.
· Start by throwing out all the toxic cleaners we use to spruce up our homes. Turn to vinegar, baking soda and citrus, particularly lemon juice, and sunlight. These four items can clean our houses (and sometimes us) from top to bottom without causing depression, hormone disruption, cancer, and a host of other diseases caused by the carcinogenic and toxic substances in household cleaners, like diethanolamine (DEA) and triethanolamine (TEA) just to start.
· Sweat. Indian sweat lodges aren’t just for inducing a vision quest. While many people attain spiritual insights from participating in a sweat lodge, they also help to clear the mind and body of toxins, so we naturally become more lucid. You can also use a dry-heat sauna for the same effect.
· Fast. Most of us don’t want to skip even a single meal, but just taking one day off form eating to allow the body to purge toxins stored in fatty tissue can make a world of difference. Fasting has been practiced by different cultures and religions around the world for centuries as an effective way to detoxify. Nutritional cleansing programs like the Isogenics cleanse include periods of intermittent fasting (alternating periods of fasting and non-fasting).
· Purge. There are ancient yogic teachings, which cleanse the mouth, tongue, trachea, stomach and intestines by drinking sea-salted water and then eliminating it. Much like a natural enema, Shankhaprakshalana helps to clean out the entire intestinal tract. The term is actually a Sanskrit word meaning Conch, as in the shell, and it refers to the circular and winding shape of our internal cavity – from mouth to anus.
· Use the six Shat kriyas or Shat Karmas practiced in Hatha Yoga. These Sanskrit words refer to six ancient cleansing techniques. Shankhaprakshalana is just one of them. Some like Nauli, or stomach churning are difficult for beginning students, but Jala Neti, nasal irrigation is easy for almost anyone to practice.
· Drink more water, but only if its purified. Many toxins are water soluble, so if you drink clean, purified water, you can help to remove them. Just make sure you aren’t drinking unpurified municipal water, it is often full of hundreds of toxins.
· Bathe in hot then cold water. Bathing in the ocean was practiced by the Kumu Hula (master teachers) as a means of purification, but not everyone has ocean front property, so bathing is a great purification ritual. It is also practiced all over Japan, Turkey, India, Africa, and Australia, just to name a few countries with bathing purification traditions or rituals. Bathing in first hot water, expands the blood vessels, and helps the ‘brown’ fat cells work more efficiently to reduce fat and toxins from the body. The cold water allows multiple dips, and also allows us to remain in the hot water longer. If you live near a hot springs or untainted, natural underground water source, many of these pools have excellent nutrients in them, which help to draw toxins out of the body. Also, just warming the body improves the lymph system and immune function. Epson salt baths can help if you don’t have a natural hot springs or the Dead Sea near you (but even the Dead Sea is becoming toxic!)
· Try one of the myriad natural cleansing products available on the market today. There are lots of products that are affordable and help to cleanse everything from the bowels to the liver.
· Eat Detoxifying Foods. You can detoxify with green tea, coffee enemas, and cilantro even. Turmeric is great for detoxifying the body, as is sour sop fruit. Apple Cider Vinegar is wonderful and so is lemon juice and ginger.
· Use Shaolin Clay to Draw Impurities From the Skin. Shaolin Monks used a special clay to help draw impurities from their bodies and to heal more rapidly from injuries received practicing martial arts. It was made into a paste with several herbs and placed on the skin, or ground into powders and taken with herbs (like Dan Gui, Nan Xing, Bai Zhu, etc.) as an oral herbal treatment. Clay baths are especially effective at removing heavy metals and mercury or lead.
· Take Milk Thistle, or Dandelion Root to Detox the Liver. This important organ removes toxins from our blood stream. These two herbs can greatly help the liver process toxins before they ever reach the bloodstream, so that they can be purged from the body via the feces or urine.
· Increase Your Vitamin C. Several studies pointed to a simple Vitamin C supplement in higher doses (which are safe since Vitamin C is water soluble) as a very effective means of detoxiing from Nuclear Fallout.
· Consider Aboriginal Kanwa Minerals are extracted from bubbling pools deep in the desert areas of Australia that are full of hundreds of trace minerals that can help detox the body. Also known as Calcium Montmorillonite Clay, this special ‘mud’ can do everything from absorb bad bacteria to reverse bone decay. Only because this soil had been untouched for millions of years, is it filled with important minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, silica and manganese, as well as other trace elements that help restore a toxic body.
Even though companies like Monsanto, Bayer, Pfizer, Roche, GlaxoSmithKline and the military industrial complex want to keep pouring toxins into our world and us, we can detox with some simple remedies to make living a healthy possible in a contaminated world. We may not be living in a pure environment, but we can still treat our bodies as temples, and purify them of the spoils of war and a fast food, pharmaceutical empire.
(NaturalNews) Herbal medicine has been around for centuries, and it just so happens to have a much more comprehensive track record of success than conventional medicine, which more often than not comes with nasty side effects. And while it may not serve the interests of the pharmaceutical cartel, modern science continues to uncover the vast health benefits associated with natural herbs and plants, many of which are freely available at grocery and health food stores, as well as farmers markets and local farm stands, depending on where you live.
Here are nine of nature’s most powerful multi-use remedies that have played a prominent role in traditional medicine:
1) Aloe vera. At the top of the herbal healing hierarchy is aloe vera, an impressive and highly-versatile plant that provides a vast array of healing benefits both internally and externally. Besides aiding in the healing of sunburns and skin inflammation, aloe vera is widely acclaimed for its unique ability to cleanse and oxygenate the blood, lower cholesterol, alkalize the body, heal intestinal and digestive disorders, and even reverse the growth and spread of cancer, among other benefits. (http://www.naturalnews.com/021858_aloe_vera_gel.html)
2) Garlic. A powerful immune-booster, garlic contains more than 70 active healing phytonutrients, including allicin, earning it a top spot on the hierarchy as well. Similarly effective both internally and externally, garlic contains potent antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties that make it a go-to remedy for preventing illness and infection. Garlic is also recognized for its ability to lower blood pressure and treat cancer.
3) Turmeric. Sometimes referred to as the king of all herbs, turmeric is an amazing anti-inflammatory spice with a laundry list of health benefits that is continually expanding. A powerful pain-relieving spice, turmeric actually works better and much more safely than COX-2 inhibitor drugs at treating arthritis and other conditions resulting from chronic inflammation. Turmeric has also been shown to help prevent cancer, as well as treat and prevent the formation of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. (http://www.naturalnews.com/turmeric.html)
4) Marijuana (cannabis). Non-psychoactive, raw marijuana leaf just so happens to be one of the most medicinal plants in the entire world. Unique due to its rich and diverse composition of cannabinoid compounds, marijuana has the capacity to not only prevent but also reverse all sorts of health conditions ranging from neurological disease and chronic pain to autoimmune disorders and cancer. The time is quickly approaching when the negative stigma associated with marijuana use finally dissipates and humanity awakens to the amazing healing capacities of this all-natural herb. (http://www.naturalnews.com/035759_cannabis_juicing_health.html)
5) Comfrey. For good reason was it once dubbed the “miracle herb,” that is before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) erroneously banned it from being sold for internal use. But comfrey truly is a wonder herb capable of promoting cell healing and regeneration, encouraging bone growth, and curing digestive disorders. Rich in a cell-proliferant compound known as allantoin, comfrey is an all-around healer that can be applied to wounds, drunk in tea, or taken as a dietary supplement for vibrant health. (http://herbsarespecial.com.au/free-herb-information/comfrey.html)
6) Echinacea. A popular herbal remedy for colds and influenza, echinacea is widely recognized for its ability to stimulate the immune system. The herb’s high concentrations of polysaccharides, flavonoids, essential oils, caffeic acid derivatives, isobutylamides, and cichoric acid are all believed to play a role in echinacea’s ability to boost white blood cell production and activate macrophages, which are responsible for tracking down viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders and destroying them. (http://www.motherearthliving.com)
7) Cinnamon. India’s traditional system of medicine, Ayurveda, as well as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) have both long utilized cinnamon for heating the body, boosting energy levels, and warding off disease. In more recent years, cinnamon has been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, and ward off viral, bacterial, and even fungal invaders such as Candida. Cinnamon is also useful in treating diabetes, boosting cognitive function, and preventing cancer. (http://www.organicauthority.com)
8) Rosemary. A delicious food herb, rosemary possesses unique medicinal and antioxidant benefits such as its ability to mitigate the carcinogenic properties of certain cooked foods. Rosemary has also been shown to help stop the proliferation of cancer tumors, as well as boost memory and promote healthy hair and skin. If your adrenal gland is overworked, rosemary can help stimulate its proper function, and studies have shown that rosemary can also help stimulate nerve growth. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029359_rosemary_stress.html)
9) Ginger. If you have ever been sea sick or suffered from nausea or stomach upset, ginger may have been recommended to you as a remedy. And science shows that it actually works by blocking the nausea-inducing effects of serotonin production, as well as preventing the production of damaging free radicals. Ginger can also help lower blood pressure, mitigate arthritis pain, promote prostate health, and even reduce the risk of cancer.
Make Your Own Natural Health and Beauty Products Using Colloidal Silver
Colloidal Silver for Natural Health and Beauty
by Angela Kaelin
Health and beauty aids are important not only to physical health, but to mental health. When we look and smell good, we feel good. The health and beauty industry takes in hundreds of millions of dollars every year, and their commercial beauty aids represents a substantial expense for many people.
Besides being a drain on your wallet, research has shown that some of the ingredients commonly found in these high-priced commercial beauty products — such as aluminum, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium fluoride and dioxins — can pose serious health risks.
Completely avoiding all of them may not be practical or even possible, but colloidal silver provides some ways to ease your body’s toxic burden by providing a healthier alternative for some of the most common commercial beauty products.
Here are a few ways colloidal silver can provide a healthier alternative and save you money. You’ll be amazed to find that colloidal silver combined with some common items that you may already have in your cabinets or that you can cheaply and easily obtain from your local health food store, can actually do a better job than anything you’ve ever used before!
All of the following recipes are very simple. The essential oils recommended are only those considered very safe, but for the sake of additional safety, don’t get any of these products into your eyes. They are all relatively inexpensive and available at health food stores.
Colloidal Silver Aftershave
This recipe is ideal for men with stiff beards who are inclined to getting bumps and ingrown hairs. Colloidal silver helps to soothe and heal any bumps or scratches. Witch hazel is a natural astringent that tightens the pores, moisturizes without being oily and can greatly benefit skin that’s prone to acne.
2 ounces of distilled water
2 ounces of colloidal silver
4 ounces of witch hazel (available at any department store, drug store, or health food store).
6-8 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)
Blend these ingredients in a bottle. Shake well before each application.
Healing and Detoxifying Mask for Men and Women
Women are much more accustomed to using detoxifying masks, and know the immediate positive results they can provide.
But, this simple mask is also recommended for men who may be having problems with ingrown hairs, bumps or blackheads.
It’s great for anyone who wants to gently exfoliate and detoxify their skin.
Here’s how to do it:
Blend old-fashioned oatmeal to a fine powder in a blender.
Put 1/4 cup of powdered oatmeal in a bowl.
Add 2 to 3 tbsp. of colloidal silver and blend into a paste with a spoon.
When you have a thin paste, apply this mixture to your face and neck. Let it remain for 10 to 15 minutes.
Bonus Tips: For increased detoxification, you can add a tbsp. of bentonite clay (available at health food stores) to the above recipe. This will help remove blackkheads, pimples, etc., and pull toxins from your pores. You may have to add a little extra colloidal silver if you choose to add the clay.
For moisturizing and skin-tightening benefits, add 1 tbsp. of honey to the above recipe.
Underarm and Personal Deodorant Spray
Many people are very sensitive to the ingredients in commercial antiperspirants and deodorants. If you’re sensitive or just want an alternative to dangerous aluminum-containing antiperspirants, try thoroughly mixing the following ingredients in an 8 to 12 oz. spray bottle:
2 – 3 ounces of colloidal silver
6 – 9 ounces of distilled water
8 to 10 drops of lavender oil
8 to 10 drops of rosemary oil
8 to 10 drops of sage oil
Sage has a light action as a natural antiperspirant. Perspiration odors on the skin are produced by bacteria. Colloidal silver works as an excellent antibacterial and is extremely beneficial to the skin as well.
Rosemary and lavender are not only aromatic, but they have profound soothing and healing properties, too.
Shake this mixture well before each application.
Healthy Feet Soak
Sweet-smelling feet are healthy feet. If your poor, tired feet spend long hours in hot shoes, they need special treatment in order to maintain your health.
Treating your feet to this colloidal silver soak not only keeps dangerous fungal infections away, but it soothes the feet and helps your whole body to relax.
Ladies, this is an excellent after-work soak or pre-pedicure treatment.
Combine the following in a little tub or pan that you can fit your feet into.
1 qt. water
6-8 ounces of colloidal silver
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup Epsom salts or baking soda
20 drops of peppermint essential oil
20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
Soak your feet for 15 or 20 minutes. Then dry feet and toes, thoroughly.
All-Natural Minty Flavored Mouthwash
Commercial mouthwashes are not safe products. Just the alcohol content alone in most of them can cause serious problems, including oral cancer.
You can use colloidal silver by itself as a safe, simple and inexpensive mouthwash. It stands on its own. But, if you insist on that “fresh minty taste” and want to make your own minty all-natural mouthwash, try combining the following ingredients in a bottle.
6 ounces distilled water
2-4 ounces colloidal silver
10-15 drops of peppermint oil or spearmint oil
Sometimes these two oils are available in the baking section of your grocery store. Or you can find them in just about any good health food store. They’re very inexpensive.
Like colloidal silver, both of these essential oils have natural anti-bacterial properties. Spearmint also has a reputation for healing gums and whitening teeth.
Shake this mixture well before each use.
Staying Healthy While Stretching Your Dollars
These are just a few of the many ways colloidal silver can help you stretch your dollars while providing you with some of the very best all-natural personal care products you’ll find, anywhere.
Hollywood stars who are into natural health often end up paying through the nose to have all-natural recipes just like these made for them through local apothecaries. Yet they are extremely simple and inexpensive to make yourself.
Don’t forget to share them with friends and family!
Colloidal silver is a powerful healer, despite irrational FDA opposition to it.
Silver has been used medicinally throughout the ages, with great success. And now some very promising research is being done on silver as a cancer treatment. Patients have previously been treated with chemotherapy drugs containing another metal, platinum. In a head-to-head comparison against a leading platinum-based chemo drug, cisplatin, a silver-based drug was found to be just as effective—and far less toxic to normal cells than platinum. Dr. Charlotte Willans, the lead researcher, calls the research an important step in the quest for effective, non-toxic cancer treatments.
Silver also happens to be the world’s oldest known antibiotic. There’s written evidence that the ancient Egyptians made use of it; the ancient Greeks and Romans stored their water, wine, and other liquids in silver vessels to prevent spoiling and contamination; ancient Chinese emperors ate with silver chopsticks, and wealthy Europeans in the Middle Ages used silver utensils to protect themselves from illness (we still call our eating utensils “silverware” despite it being made from other metals these days).
In the 1800s and early 1900s, colloidal silver compounds were widely used to fight infections, though silver fell out of favor in the 1930s with the development of the first modern antibiotics. Even so, silver is still popularly used today to treat water, purify air, and is used in medical dressings prevent infection in burn victims. Very importantly in today’s world, germs cannot develop a resistance to silver.
The big problem with antibiotic drugs, we now know, is that bacteria can become resistant to them, adapting into “superbugs” that are very difficult to treat. The problem, as we noted in January, is exacerbated by overuse of antibiotics—particularly in animals raised for food, where 80% of US antibiotics are used.
Despite the long history of successful silver usage, including its current use in wound dressings and burn salves, the FDA’s official position is that silver is “not safe or effective for treating any disease or condition.” A 1996 FDA rule declared all over-the-counter silver products to be unsafe and “misbranded.”
The government and other skeptics often claim that colloidal silver can cause argyria—a condition in which the skin turns bluish gray. However, argyria has only been found to occur in response to prolonged exposure to or ingestion of silver compounds, especially silversalts, which are not present in true colloidal silver but are found in cheap imitations.
This was demonstrated rather dramatically in 2008 by Paul Karason, the fellow whom the news media dubbed the “Blue Man.” Although the news media continually reported that he was taking colloidal silver, interviews with Mr. Karason indicated that was apparently making his own silver compounds at home and ended up making silver chloride—a silver salt—which he both consumed in excessive quantities and regularly smeared on his skin before using tanning beds! Silver salt compounds are great for making photographic paper—but not for taking internally or applying to the skin.
A study published earlier this year demonstrated that bacteria are now mutating to evade vaccines for childhood pneumonia and meningitis. So we not only have antibiotic-resistant superbugs, we have vaccine-resistant ones as well. This is just the latest indication that the “miracle drugs” and vaccines of the mid-to-late 1900s are not standing the test of time.
Contrast this with colloidal silver, which has been used as a bactericide for over a millennium—and has never produced silver-resistant bacteria! The recent research into silver as an anti-cancer agent is exactly the kind of research that today’s medical experts should be exploring—and would be, but for FDA opposition.
Why is the FDA so stubbornly opposed? Presumably because the agency does not like competition for its approved patented drugs which are derived from natural sources. People dying from resistant bugs does not seem to move the FDA—they’re only interested in new patented drugs that might quell the superbugs, even though such drugs are not being produced much, and even when they are, they often prove to be too toxic to use.
