TEN WAYS TO USE COLLOIDAL SILVER’S AMAZING HEALING ABILITIES
NaturalNews – PF Louis) Colloidal silver consists of silver atoms suspended in distilled ion-less water. The particles of silver are small enough to penetrate on a cellular level and destroy pathogens of all types, including bacteria, fungal spores, parasites, and viruses.
Not only does silver get rid of pathogens, it helps promote rapid healing of the tissues infected or destroyed. Most burn centers use various forms of silver and silver soaked bandaging for burn victims.
You can buy colloidal silver online or in good health food stores or make your own cheaply and easily. Colloidal silver has many applications and is easy to apply. It has no adverse side effects. It leaves beneficial bacteria intact. Reports of argyria (skin turning blue) are greatly exaggerated.
The Medical Mafia has a tendency to blow up rare incidents of minor adverse effects from natural remedies and blow them up as scare tactics while ignoring the hundreds of thousands of annual adverse side effects from correctly prescribed pharmaceuticals.
Ten ways to use colloidal silver for self healing
1) You can spray it onto burns to prevent infections and promote faster healing without scarring.
2) You can also spray or dab it onto ringworm, boils, herpes sores, and warts for faster healing.
3) If you’re having bronchial problems or walking pneumonia, you can put some colloidal silver in a nebulizer and breathe it into your bronchial area and lungs directly.
4) Small amounts taken daily as a tonic will give what some call a second immune system to guard against flues and colds. Easy and inexpensive if you make if you make your own.
5) Colloidal silver drops can be used for ear infections without any harmful side effects. Some use it for eye and nasal infections as well. Perhaps it can be injected anally with an enema bulb to help cleanse the colon.
6) It can be applied topically for vaginal yeast infections or oral thrush (yeast infection). Could be useful for chronic jock itch as well.
7) Colloidal silver can be used by pregnant women to assist fetal development and easier delivery of the newborn child.
8) It can be taken early with the onset of a cold, flu, or bronchitis to get over it quickly without harming beneficial bacteria. Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria.
9) Colloidal silver can be used successfully to combat MRSA infections. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a staph infection that can be fatal and is now resistant to antibiotics. It usually occurs during hospital stays, but has become rampant enough to originate outside hospitals.
10) There has been some success using colloidal silver with AIDS patients. It adds a layer of needed additional immunity while destroying existing pathogens.
More about colloidal silver
Early 20th Century western medicine used silver as a prime antibiotic and anti-fungal until the 1930s. Then antibiotics became a major source of Big Pharma revenue.
As more and more antibiotics were created, the pathogenic microbes began evolving into resistant strains to them. The health dangers imposed by antibiotics by destroying friendly gut flora needed for digestion and immunity were disregarded.
Antibiotic use lowers immunity by destroying the good bacteria along with the bad. Lately, some fluoroquinolone based antibiotics have even permanently and painfully crippled those who had been prescribed them.
Since silver seems to act by stifling the enzymes pathogens use for survival, pathogens are unable to develop resistance to them. Fortunately, alternative medicine has re-discovered colloidal silver for healing all sorts of ailments. A few years ago, the EU banned colloidal silver sales.
NATURAL SOLUTIONS’ BODY HEALING CLEANSE TO ELIMINATE VIRUSES AND BACTERIA
A simple, straight-forward 40 day recipe for restored health
For the next four weeks consume raw organic fruits and vegetables, with an emphasis on keeping fat intake low.
Limit salt intake, only a sprinkle of Himalayan salt to a dish as needed.
Stay hydrated with plenty of water, coconut water, herbal tea and or fresh juices. Drink one cup at a time as the body cannot absorb more.
This is just a sample menu, you can swap the lunch and dinner dishes. Or eat two salads. Or have a smoothie for lunch or dinner. Eat as many greens as you like
BREAKFAST Make a fruit smoothie for breakfast.
A good blend is:- three bananas, two dates, and one cup of berries. Papayas, pears and mangoes make delicious additions. Other healthy smoothies include greens like spinach, kale, or cilantro, celery or barley grass juice extract powder.
MID MORNINGHave another fruit smoothie or make two servings in the morning and have the second now.
LUNCHMake a salad with spinach, lettuce, and cucumbers as the base, and then toss in the fruits of your choice. Berries sliced mangoes, papaya chunks, grapes, and orange or grapefruit segments. Add garlic or ginger to taste.
SUPPER Spinach soup, as an example choice:- here you combine two bunches of spinach, three medium or large tomatoes or equal quantity of cherry or grape tomatoes, the juice of one orange, one stalk of celery and a small handful of cilantro and clove of garlic. Add basil or other herbs that appeal. You can serve this over cucumber noodles. If you are still hungry after dinner; snack on apple and date.
This is just example menu – the idea is no flesh foods, and no fat or dairy for the four weeks. During this process your cells will release toxins. You may experience unpleasant emotional and physical sensations as part of the detoxification. The bloodstream will purify itself. Your Liver will start to do its work.
You will need extra rest during this period. After you finish this healing protocol, introduce foods slowly, but keep to pure and natural (no processed). Humankind depends on fruit for overall good health.
Please see sample menu list below.
The Tree of Life was an ancient symbol of interconnection, fertility and eternal life. Fruit is part of our essence, a basic element of who we are. We cannot survive without fruit on this planet. It outweighs the nutrition of any other food. We have the understanding to avoid processed sugar because diseases can potentially feed on it, but the trouble is that too many people see fruit as a source of harm because of the sugars it contains. Fruit is anti cancerous, it actually fights cancer more effectively than any other food, and anyone with cancer or overcoming any ailment who removes fruit from their diet is giving up their most powerful natural weapon against the very disease they are trying to eliminate. Not only does fruit fight cancer, it kills all types of viruses and bacteria, and certain fruits such as bananas, wild blueberries, apples and papayas are the most powerful natural destroyers of viruses on earth.
It is vital to ensure gut health, which is essential to a healthy immune system. For example the pectin in apples, and the skin pulp and fiber in figs and dates are exceptionally effective at destroying and/or clearing out anything that doesn’t belong in the intestinal tract, including fungi such as Candida, (yes fruit kills candida cells) worms and other parasites. Another misconception is that fruit sugar hinders the liver.
Almost all liver diseases are protein and fat related, because viruses thrive on protein and fat. The best way to get someone over liver diseases and or hepatitis C is to feed them solely fruits and vegetables.
Hypoglycemia often starts because of a dysfunctional liver that’s lost its store of glucose due to a diet too high in fat and protein. Women need enough fruit so they can avoid fatigue, cancers, tumours, viruses , and other illnesses.
So whatever you may be suffering from, or healing from, a s your body to eliminate stored toxins, chemicals and diseased cells. It will leave you feeling far more energetic and ‘light’. As with any detox program, you may experience headaches or other symptoms as your body adjusts.

World-Wide Praise for Colloidal Silver from Clinical Researchers 2015-12-07
World-Wide Praise for Colloidal Silver from Clinical Researchers
Clinical research experts worldwide are singing the praises of colloidal silver, silver ions, silver nanoparticles and other forms of antimicrobial silver.
Only in the U.S. are medical authorities still clinging to the Big Pharma-inspired notion that silver is “ineffective” or “obsolete.”
Indeed, many cutting edge clinical researchers from around the world are beginning to admit that colloidal silver and other forms of antimicrobial silver might just be the answer to the worldwide crisis of antibiotic-resistant super-bugs, hospital infections, and other serious problems.
Let’s take a quick look at what some of these researchers are saying…
At this link you can find over 100 clinical studies, medical white papers and reports on the effectiveness of various forms of silver against disease-causing pathogens and related disease process.
Below you can read short quotes from clinical studies conducted by researchers from around the globe on various forms of silver and their proven effectiveness against pathogens and disease processes.
Egyptian Researchers: Colloidal Silver IsSuperior to Antibiotic Drugs in Effectiveness Against Disease-Causing Pathogens
“All tested bacteria were resistant to more than one antibiotic. The important observation was the antibacterial activity of colloidal silver against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa which exhibits superior effects when compared with other antibiotics.”

Nigerian Researchers: Colloidal Silver Is Potent Against Drug-Resistant Bacteria
“Our study has further confirmed the potent antibacterial activity of colloidal silver concentrate against Pseudomonas aeruginosa…In the present study, colloidal silver was shown to demonstrate very potent antibacterial activity against P. aeruginosa isolated from post operative eye infection.
This activity should be urgently explored in the development of highly active antibacterial therapeutic agents to combat the rapidly increasing infectious diseases that currently challenge the present arsenal of antibacterial drugs.”

Iranian Researchers: Silver Nanoparticles Wipe Out Bacteria Behind Hospital-Acquired Infections
“Hospital-acquired infections are one of the most important causes of complications and mortality in medical centers. These infections have been considered as the sixth leading cause of death in US and Europe. As well, they contribute 10-50 billion dollars to the economic burden annually.
For this reason, we studied the effect of different dilutions of silver nanoparticles on some of the common hospital organisms at specific intervals. Results: All the three dilutions of silver nanoparticles studied had definite positive effects on the bacteria under study…resulting in more than a 99 percent reduction.”

Chinese Researchers: Silver Ions BeatStaphylococcus aureus and E. coli by Preventing the Pathogens from Replicating
“Silver ions have long been known to have strong inhibitory and bactericidal effects as well as a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activities. Some forms of silver have been demonstrated to be effective against burns, severe chronic osteomyelitis, urinary tract infections, and central venous catheter infections…
…To investigate the mechanism of inhibition of silver ions on microorganisms, two strains of bacteria, namely Gram-negative Escherichia coli and Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus were treated with silver ions and studied using combined electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis.
Similar morphological changes occurred in both E. coli and S. aureus cells after silver ion treatment. The cytoplasm membrane detached from the cell wall. A remarkable electron-light region appeared in the center of the cells, which contained condensed deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecules. There are many small electron-dense granules either surrounding the cell wall, or depositing inside the cells.
The existence of elements of silver and sulfur in the electron-dense granules and cytoplasm suggested the antibacterial mechanism of silver: DNA lost its replication ability and the protein became inactivated after the silver ion treatment.”

Indian Researchers: Colloidal Silver Prevents Infections by Bacteria, Viruses and Fungi
“Scientists have discovered that the body’s most important fluids are colloidal in nature: suspended ultra-fine particles. Blood, for example, carries nutrition and oxygen to the body cells. This led to studies with colloidal silver (electrical silver atoms). An electro-colloidal process, which is known to be the best method, is used for manufacturing the colloidal silver.
Colloidal silver appears to be a powerful, natural antibiotic and preventative against infections. Acting as a catalyst, it disables the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. They suffocate without corresponding harm occurring to human enzymes or parts of the human body chemistry. The result is the destruction of disease-causing organisms in the body and in the food.”

Spanish Researchers: Silver Nanoparticles Make Antibiotic Drugs Work Better
“Recently, due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and the use limitations of antibiotics that can cause serious diseases and is an important public health problem, the synergetic effect of silver nanoparticles with antibiotics has been studied combining silver nanoparticles with different antibiotics like ampicillin, kanamycin, erythromycin and chloramphenicol against gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
The antibacterial activities of these antibiotics increase in the presence of silver nanoparticles against gram positive and gram negative bacteria determined by the disk diffusion method. Different diameters of inhibition zones have been shown around the different antibiotic disk with or without AgNPs.
The combination effect of nanosilver and ampicillin has more potential compared to the other antibiotics and may be caused by both, the cell wall lysis action of the ampicillin and the DNA binding action of the silver nanoparticles (Fayaz et al., 2009).
The antibiotic molecules contain many active groups such as hydroxyl and amido groups, which reacts easily with silver nanoparticles by chelation, for this reason, the synergistic effect may be caused by the bonding reaction with antibiotic and silver nanoparticles.”

British Researchers: Silver Successfully Attacks Pathogens Through Multiple Pathways
“The most important finding is that silver-unlike most antibiotics-works in more than one way. This is perhaps why bacteria may find it difficult to build resistance to the chemical. Here is silver’s multi-pronged approach:
First, silver sticks very strongly to sulfur, found in parts of [bacterial] proteins. These sulfur groups normally bond to each other, holding proteins together and keeping the protein folded up in its correct shape. But if silver interacts with sulfur, then the protein cannot fold correctly, and thus it cannot do its job.
Next, silver interferes with how bacteria use iron. Iron is often held in place within proteins by binding to sulfur. Since silver also interacts with sulfur, it blocks the iron from doing so. Finally, silver causes bacteria to produce extremely toxic substances called reactive oxygen species. These go on to cause damage inside the cell, harming the DNA, proteins, and even the membrane that surround cells.
The net result of this silver onslaught is bacteria with severe damage to their basic biochemistry. In addition, the membranes and walls that surround the bacteria are leakier after the silver treatment.”

Korean Researchers: Nanosilver Is Effective Against Pathogenic Fungal Microbes
“Many studies have shown the antimicrobial effects of nanosilver, but the effects of nanosilver against fungal pathogens of the skin, including clinical isolates of T. mentagrophytes and Candida species are mostly unknown.
The primary significance of this study is the observation that nanosilver can inhibit the growth of dermatophytes, which cause superficial fungal infections. Nanosilver also exhibited potent antifungal effects, probably through destruction of membrane integrity.
To the author’s knowledge, this is the first study to apply nanosilver successfully to dermatophytes and pathogenic fungal strains. Secondly, the fact that preparation method of nanosilver described here is cost-effective is also of importance. Therefore, it can be expected that nanosilver may have potential as an anti-infective agent for human fungal diseases.”

Pakistani Researchers: Silver Ions Are Toxic to Infectious Microbes Without Harming Normal Cells
“Silver is non-toxic, safe inorganic antibacterial agent being used for centuries and is capable of killing about 650 microorganisms that cause disease. Silver has been described as being ‘oligodynamic’, that is, its ions are capable of causing a bacteriostatic (growth inhibition) or even a bactericidal (antibacterial) impact.
Therefore, it has the ability to exert a bactericidal effect at minute concentrations.
It has a significant potential for a wide range of biological applications such as antibacterial agents for antibiotic resistant bacteria, preventing infections, healing wounds and anti-inflammatory. Silver ions (Ag+) and its compounds are highly toxic to microorganisms exhibiting strong biocidal effects on many species of bacteria but have a low toxicity toward animal cells.”

Australian Researchers: Colloidal Silver Safely Stops Staphylococcus aureus Sinus Infections
“In the safety study, normal saline (control) and 30ppm colloidal silver solution (test) was used to flush the frontal sinuses for 14 days in 8 sheep (4 sheep each). In the efficacy study, following frontal sinus infection with Staphylococcus aureus, sheep were treated with either control saline or topical silver solution of varying concentrations (30 ppm/20 ppm/10 ppm/5 ppm) for 5 days, with 4 sheep in each group.
Sheep treated with colloidal silver showed a significant decrease in biofilm biomass compared to saline control. Although average blood silver levels were higher in the treated groups compared to controls, blood counts and biochemical parameters were normal. Histology and ciliary structure analysis did not show any difference between control and treatment groups…Conclusion: Topical colloidal silver solution has effective antibiofilm activity in Staphylococcus aureus CRS in a sheep model and appears safe.”

African Researchers: Silver Nanoparticles Reduce the Growth of Melanoma Tumors and Breast Cancer Cells
“Previously, we reported the cytotoxic effect of colloidal silver on MCF-7 breast cancer cell line. However, there is scarce information on its antitumor potential. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-tumoral activity of colloidal silver or silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in a B16F10 melanoma mice model.
In vitro, B16F10 cells were treated with different concentrations of colloidal silver or silver nanoparticles and cell viability was evaluated by MTT method, both treatments had cytotoxic effects against B16F10 cell line. In vivo, B16F10 melanoma cells were implanted in six weeks old C57BL/6 mice.
About 8 days after cells injection, the subcutaneous treatments were started with colloidal silver or silver nanoparticles, tumor volume and tumor weight were evaluated and the difference of treated groups and control demonstrated that melanoma tumor growth was significantly decreased. Our results suggest that colloidal silver or silver nanoparticles could be useful as an anti-proliferative drug, inducing an impairment of tumoral growth.”

Much, Much More
Frankly, I could post excerpts from a wide variety of international clinical studies like these all day. There are literally hundreds of them available.
But hopefully the examples above have given you enough detail to see that researchers from around the world are finding colloidal silver and other forms of antimicrobial silver to be astonishingly effective against infectious microorganisms, as well as other disease processes including cancer.
In the future, I’ll post more examples. But feel free to browse through the wide array of silver studies posted here.
Before the invention of the refrigerator, it was common practice to drop a silver coin into a container of milk as a preservative because silver was known to prevent the growth of algae, bacteria and other undesirable organisms.
Dating back to ancient times, silver was also a popular remedy to stop the spread of diseases. Its use as a natural antibiotic continued all the way until the 1940s, when modern antibiotics arrived.
Today, obviously, people don’t need to drop silver coins into their water to experience colloidal silver benefits! All you need to do is carefully take a few drops from a bottle that you buy at the store, which is:
“A solution of water containing nanometre sized particles of suspended silver. The total silver content is expressed as milligrams of silver per litre (mg/L) of water which is numerically the same as parts per million (ppm). The total silver content is divided into two forms of silver: ionic silver and silver particles. (3)
There are basically three types of products that are marketed as “colloidal silver” and these can be categorized as:
Ionic silver solutions
True colloidal silver
Ionic silver –
Ionic silver solutions are products whose silver content primarily consists of silver ions. Although ionic silver is often marketed as colloidal silver, it’s not true colloidal silver. Because it’s the least expensive to produce, ionic silver is the most popular product in this category. The problem? It simply won’t produce the same benefits that true colloidal silver can.
Silver Protein –
In order to keep large silver particles suspended, silver protein-based products add gelatin. Silver protein is the second-most popular type of colloidal silver product on the market and can easily be made by adding water to silver protein powder. Again, it’s also often marketed and labeled as colloidal silver, but should not be confused for the real thing. Silver protein is less effective for human use, and you won’t experience the true colloidal silver benefits.
True Colloidal Silver –
Lastly, true silver colloids don’t contain any protein or other additives, as the vast majority of the silver content consists of nanometre-sized silver particles. (4)
Colloidal Silver Side Effects
Although the National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health reports that colloidal silver may cause poor absorption of some drugs, there is limited research proving that side effects to colloidal silver use even exist. (17)
Nonetheless, you may come across many warnings about it causing an irreversible condition called argyria (when people turn blue). However, this is caused by misuse not of true colloidal silver, but through other cheaper products marketed as colloidal silver, such as ionic silver or silver protein.
One point to consider is that, because colloidal silver is such a potent antibacterial agent, you should be sure to supplement with probiotics during use to be sure that you maintain a proper balance of microflora.
London – The “golden age of antibiotics” is coming to an end, a leading doctor has warned.
Professor Jeremy Farrar, the new director of Britain’s biggest medical research charity, the Wellcome Trust, said infections could become untreatable as a result.
“This is happening now,” he said.
“What we will see is people actually spending longer in hospital, patients getting sicker and having complications and dying, and it will creep up on us almost without us noticing.”
He said complacency set in during the 1970s and 1980s when antibiotics could have been used more wisely to stave off resistance to the drugs developing.
Farrar, who spent 18 years working in Vietnam where he witnessed resistance to TB drugs, said access to antibiotics needed to be regulated because they were available over the counter at low cost in many countries.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “No government can do this on its own because this is a truly global issue.
“This is getting to the tipping point where … we will start to see this, not in infections many, many miles away, but here in London.”
Farrar is the latest expert to warn of impending disaster from antibiotic resistance.
Last year, England’s chief medical officer Professor Dame Sally Davies warned that resistance to antibiotics was a “ticking time bomb” and one of the greatest threats to modern health.
Davies said many of the drugs are being used unnecessarily for mild infections or illnesses – which is helping to create resistance.
About half the UK population do not know antibiotics are inappropriate to treat colds, influenza and viruses, according to evidence given to the Commons Science and Technology Committee. – Daily Mail
What now? Where do we go from here?
Colloidal Silver and Jim Humble’s new CDS (Chlorine Dioxide Solution) are both available from BIO-SIL SA (011 615-5504 or firstname.lastname@example.org). They are both anti bacterial / anti viral and anti fungal, safe, natural and effective.
(NaturalNews) Most of our society lives with the idea that health is a state of “feeling good” and “not being sick or diseased.” We fear contact with bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. We use antibacterial soap, sprays, pills, potions and lotions. We are constantly “gearing up” for the next big flu pandemic, etc.
In traditional cultures, fevers were always well respected and understood. Most people knew that the fever would build up and then break, much like a wave rolling into shore. Now, our society tries to suppress the fever immediately using antipyretics, or substances that lower temperature.
These antipyretics include acetaminophen and ibuprofen. These quickly lower the temperature, but they also silence the body and hinder the development of the immune system. This allows the invading organisms to survive and contribute to the formation of chronic disease.
Your immune system is a muscle:
The immune system functions like a muscle in that must be challenged in order to grow stronger. Without resistance the immune system cannot get any stronger. An appropriate resistance may at times give someone a cold or fever. This is a natural adaptive response that the body makes in order to allow the immune system to function at a greater level.
Getting a cold or a flu and having feverish symptoms may be the best expression of health for someone. Their individual immune system’s metabolic capacity may have been so weak that they couldn’t handle the natural environmental stressors. So the body became vulnerable and developed a viral or bacterial infection.
Fevers stimulate the immune system:
The immune system responds to fend off infection and strengthen the body. Microorganisms can only survive at unique temperature ranges. The innate intelligence within our body understands this and has adapted since the beginning of time to create an environment that is incompatible for these infectious organisms.
As our core temperature rises, it reduces the microorganism load in the body. The body will not want to elevate temperature to the point of killing off all its good microbes but will if necessary. When the body is under extreme infection, the core temperature has to regulate the internal ecosystem by increasing the temperature and killing off microbes.
Our normal body temperature is said to be 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. A fever is defined by an oral temperature that exceeds 100.4 degrees. At 101 degrees, most bacteria are unable to survive, and at 102 degrees, the viruses are unable to replicate and spread in the body. Fevers are typically self-limiting and short in duration. They are not dangerous until they get up over 104 degrees in temperature.
The increasing temperature activates the immune system:
As the core temperature elevates, it activates the CD8+ cytotoxic T cell. This is a special lymphocyte that is able to destroy cancerous cells and cells infected with viruses. Researchers have found that higher body temperatures raise the number of CD8+ cytotoxic T cells. This creates a significantly greater immune response against infection.
The increase in core temperature also elevates neutrophils, which are unique immune cells that selectively target infectious bacterial cells. The temperature increase also improves enzymatic activity to create an environment that is unkind to the infectious microbes.
According to Dr. John Wherry, PhD, deputy editor of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, “Having a fever might be uncomfortable, … but [research reports show] that having a fever is part of an effective immune response.”
Over-sterilizing our environment and using synthetic chemicals, such as drugs, artificial vitamins and fever reducers, only makes our body weaker. These products are like a crutch that does not allow the body to adapt and get stronger. So we end up weak and vulnerable and unable to effectively adapt to a challenging environment.
The role of mucus formation:
Mucosal surfaces are the primary entry points into the body for pathogenic microorganisms. Until recently, most scientists viewed mucus as simply a physical barrier that helped to prevent against the invasion of infectious organisms. It was also thought to play a lubricating role between tissues. However, the latest research shows that mucus appears to be the primary home of unique organisms called bacteriophages.
Bacteriophages, which are also called “phages,” are viruses that infect and replicate within bacteria. They selectively target antagonistic microbes and thus enhance the health of the host.
Wherever bacteria and other microorganisms reside you will also find phages.
Researchers have found evidence that phages partner with host animals and humans to kill off unwanted bacterial colonies and control the composition of friendly microorganisms in the body. This reduces infectious organisms and improves the immune system.
In times of fever, the body increases mucus to trap bacteria and enhance the activity of phages in order to reduce infectious organisms. This is an intelligent response by the body to prevent chronic infection and disease development. Trust the body and trust your symptoms!
When is a fever dangerous?
You should always consult your natural health physician when fevers go over 103 degrees or last longer than four days. If the fever causes tremendous discomfort, trouble breathing or convulsions at any time, it would be an indication to go to the emergency room.
One should drink tons of clean water and use electrolytes such as fresh squeezed lemon. This will support the body as it uses up fluids and electrolytes quickly in an effort to rid itself of the infectious organisms. If the temperature gets up over 104 degrees, an ice bath can help bring it down a bit so as to not cause damage to any of the vital organs.
