Athlete’s Foot – bye bye!

Colloidal Silver for Athlete’s Foot and Other Topical Fungal Infections

Can colloidal silver help with stubborn topical fungal infections such as athlete’s foot?  Well, according to these colloidal silver users, it sure can!

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com

Topical fungal infections can be quite nasty and very frustrating.

Prescription anti-fungal drugs don’t always work.

And because of the potentially harmful side effects – such as liver damage — not everybody with a fungal infection wants to use the prescription drugs.

Is there a safe, natural alternative?  You bet there is!

Colloidal silver has been demonstrated in clinical studies to literally decimate fungal pathogens, including those that cause athlete’s foot.

In fact, in the recent study described in the article at the link above, colloidal silver even proved to be more effective than some of the most powerful prescription antifungal drugs!

But that shouldn’t be surprising.  After all, Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., known as the father of electrically generated silver ions, demonstrated back in 1976 (in a study titled “Antifungal Properties of Electrically Generated Metallic Silver Ions”)…

…that silver has astonishing anti-fungal properties!

A Practical Method of Killing Athlete’s Foot Using Colloidal Silver!

My good online friend and fellow natural health journalist Tony Isaacs wrote a great article for NaturalNews.com covering seven different natural ways to heal athlete’s foot.  One of those ways, of course, included colloidal silver.

Here’s what he said:

“One sure-fire home remedy is to use a combination of apple cider vinegar, water, colloidal silver and moisturizer.

Soak your feet in one part white vinegar and four parts water for 20-30 minutes. Dry your feet and apply colloidal silver over the entire foot, being sure to get in between the toes.

Allow to air dry thoroughly and then apply a good moisturizer, such as the oil found in crushed garlic from the grocery store. Other good choices are tea tree oil, sesame oil and olive oil.

The combination of vinegar and colloidal silver kills the athlete’s foot fungus and the moisturizer helps the skin heal.

Repeat the procedure twice daily and your athlete’s foot should be gone in a matter of days. To prevent future outbreaks of athlete’s foot, repeat the above remedy once each week.

Note: colloidal silver is optional, but it helps speed the remedy and makes it more effective.”

Does It Work?

I’ve heard from many readers that colloidal silver does indeed work wonders for fungal infections such as athlete’s foot.  In fact, in many cases, colloidal silver alone was all that was needed!

Here’s a testimonial from the Colloidal Silver Success Stories web site, from a man who uses colloidal silver to cure stubborn fungal infections in horse’s feet:

Colloidal Silver Works for My Athlete’s Foot, As Well as for Fungal Infections On My Horse’s Feet!

“I use the colloidal silver for many things.

I’m a farrier and I give it to customers for clearing up thrush in horse’s feet. It has controlled chronic infections in a number of horses I treat.

It’s been successful in treating summer itch which is a fungal infection that horses get in warmer weather.

I also use it myself for athlete’s foot, skin injuries, as a mouth wash, and just about any external injury.”

— Philip S., Littlerock, CA

And here’s another testimonial from the Colloidal Silver Success Stories web site, from a woman who tends to get athlete’s foot often during the hot summer months.  She wrote:

Cured of Athlete’s Foot By Soaking My Feet In Colloidal Silver!

“I often get athlete’s foot, especially in the summer when it’s hot and I have to wear shoes, for example to work in my flower garden.

I do go without shoes whenever I can or wear sandals. The athlete’s foot seems like it can strike overnight! I will even get blisters between my toes and the itching almost drives me crazy!

But since I have your Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator I can use as much silver as I want at a fraction of the cost.

So when these “attacks” happen, I use a glass 8×8 cake pan and put 2 cups of full strength colloidal silver in it. I then soak both my feet at the same time.

I wear a size 7 shoe and put the pan at an angle in front of me, it being a diamond shape not a square. My big toes are in the top point and my heels in the bottom point. They fit perfectly.

I soak them for at least 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening, after my shower.

Usually the first couple of soaks will relieve the itching, and within 2-3 days the blisters are healing nicely. I use the same silver for 2 soakings and then discard.”

— J.K., Presque Isle, MI

Here are a couple more short testimonials, also from the Colloidal Silver Success Stories web site:

Colloidal Silver Healed My Athlete’s Foot, Bronchitis and Red Eye!

“My own experience has been phenomenal.

I had bronchitis for about 3 weeks when my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator arrived. I made a batch and started taking it.

Within two days I didn’t have any bronchitis symptoms. I was only taking a teaspoon per day. I was amazed.

It also cleared up my red eye which occasionally happens, as well as my athlete’s foot!”

— W.E. Quirein

Colloidal Silver Clears Up My Athlete’s Foot Immediately!

“I’m diabetic, which means cuts and scratches in the leg or feet are sometimes difficult to heal.

If I get a scratch or a cut on my legs, I rub colloidal silver up and down where the wound is.  The silver heals the wound twice as fast.

I also use the colloidal silver for athlete’s foot — clears it up immediately.

I will not go anywhere without my machine.”

— Mike T., Challis, ID

Spraying My Athlete’s Foot 3 Times Per Day With Colloidal Silver Healed It!

“I had athlete’s foot. Sprayed colloidal silver on my feet and it went away in a short time. I sprayed generously, 3 times per day.”

— D.A. Lenz, MN

Colloidal Silver Cured My Boyfriend’s Athlete’s Foot For the First Time In Years!

“My boyfriend has cured his athlete’s foot for the first time in years. He also suffered from bleeding gums, also gone.

This stuff is magic and no wonder the selling of it has been banned in Europe.  Why? Because it WORKS! And it can be made for cents by every individual.

This is NOT what the pharmaceutical industry wants. They want us sick and paying them to remain sick.”

— Lucy J.

I Could Feel The Colloidal Silver Working On My Athlete’s Foot Immediately!

“Hi, I’ve used colloidal silver for about a year. It’s cured my nail fungus, athlete’s foot, swimmers ear.

I’ve used it for sinus with success and many other problems. I have a generator and wouldn’t be without it now.

The nail fungus was only on my big toe to one side. I trimmed that portion off, exposing the nail bed. I soaked my feet in a baking dish full of colloidal silver.

The athlete’s foot problem was on the other foot, so it took care of both problems at the same time.

I could feel the colloidal silver working on the fungus toe almost immediately and continued this for about a week and half.  It took a while for my nail to grow, now I can wear sandals again.”

— Susan A.

Colloidal Silver Resolves Athlete’s Foot for Postal Carrier!

“I said that I would write back and let you know how things have been going with my new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.

I have to say, things are great and I know it’s working. I’m still trying it on different things but it has worked very well on some issues.

… I used it on my feet, since I’ve had athlete’s foot and I’m walking in my shoes all day long six days a week, as I am a postal carrier.

Again, problem was solved. No more itching. And my feet were getting very nasty during that time!”

— Curt S.

Colloidal Silver Cured My Daughter’s Athlete Foot!

“My 25 yr old daughter had been treating a foot fungus with many different over-the-counter products, with no luck in clearing up the fungus.

She had suffered with the pain and itching for almost a month. I encouraged her to dab on some silver water. She did and immediately the itching stopped.

I sent her home with a small bottle. The next day she called me….she had applied it several times that day. The pain was gone and the deep redness had changed to a pale pink. In 3 days after first application…..fungus was gone!!

I am no longer skeptical about it.”

— Nancy S., Topeka, KS

Colloidal Silver Cured Athlete’s Foot and Several Other Problems!

You people have a fantastic product. Thank you very much!”

— Mike T., Idaho

Colloidal Silver Healed Nasty Fungal Infection That Even Lamisil Wouldn’t Cure!

“While trimming her toe nails one day my sister discovered a hole in the skin between her baby toe and the next toe, she could actually stick the end of a Q-tip into it. She hadn’t felt any pain from it so I guess that’s why it took so long to notice it.

She showed her doctor and he said to put some Lamisil Antifungal Cream on it several times a day. Janie applied the cream 3 to 4 times a day for 3 weeks with no results at all. The hole did not get any bigger but it also was not getting any better either. She was very discouraged.

I suggested she try using the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver I had given her, which I made with my generator bought from The Silver Edge.

So she stopped using the cream and began only using the colloidal silver by putting a cotton ball between her 2 toes to hold them apart and then used a glass eye dropper to put drops in the hole.

Janie would let it air dry before removing the cotton, but if she was in a hurry she used the hair dryer to blow it dry.

She would do this whenever she thought about it throughout the day and being it was summer and warm out, it was quick and easy to do because of being able to wear open toed shoes and no socks to remove each time.

In addition to the topical applications, she also was drinking 1 ounce of the colloidal silver 3 times a day.

After just several days she could see the hole was definitely healing and beginning to close up. Soon after that it had completely healed and the problem has not returned.”

— S. Glentz, MI

Colloidal Silver Heals Persistent Fungal Infections Of the Feet!

“I use the colloidal silver water to treat persistent fungus infections, dipping my feet in silver water for 15-20 minutes every day.

Also I take it to prevent developing stomach flu. In this case I drink a glass of silver water 1-2 times a day.

Thanks for your wonderful product!”

— A.B. Houston, Texas

Used Colloidal Silver to Heal Fungal Infection on Clydesdale’s Legs!

My Clydesdale, Taz, got a type of fungus under his feathers on his legs.

This happens because the feathers — hair — is so long on Clydesdales legs that the hair creates a wet, dark, warm environment for microbes and other things like that to grow.

I would spray Colloidal Silver on his legs/feathers on day, and the next day the fungus was already healing.

During wet weather season I did this 1x per week. He never got fungus again on his legs.

Chronic Toenail Fungus Doing Better After Spraying Colloidal Silver On It!

“Toenail fungus: A chronic problem for several years.

I have been to Podiatrist and had a RX for Penlac. It did nothing.

I then sprayed the silver on my toes daily before putting on my socks. The fungus is not completely gone, but in eight months my toenails have grown back in clean and clear!

I will keep using the silver daily.”

— Dan F., Naples, FL

“I’ve had one of your Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generators for some time and my daughter has used colloidal silver on her fingernails that had some kind of fungus. The silver healed the fingers.”

— George, Torrance, CA

“Impossible To Get Rid Of” Nail Fungus Cured With Colloidal Silver!

“Folks, if you’ve never tried it, this is just amazing stuff. Both my husband and I had toenail fungus, which we found impossible to get rid of—even with tea tree oil—but the colloidal silver did the trick! You could see the changes in just a couple of weeks.

We take an ounce or so orally whenever we think about it throughout the day and spray the silver water onto the affected area first thing in the morning and last thing at night or whenever else remember to do it.

We bought our generator from http://thesilveredge.com, but there are other companies out there as well.

We have no piece of the action at this site, but we highly recommend it because of our results.”

Colloidal Silver “Really Clears Up Toenail Fungus Fast!”

“We have two of your ‘Micro’ machines and love them – as do our clients in our clinic.

We make up our own foot bath electrolytes to treat Peripheral Neuropathy – and colloidal silver makes up a healthy amount of said electrolytes. It really clears up toenail fungus fast!”

— JDS, Chico Holistic Healthcare

“We bought our Micro-Particle generator back in November 2009 and have been using the product which has been helping to rid my feet and legs of a dark fungus.

I take two shot glasses three to four times a day.

I have made over 25 gallons since …we got our unit.

All of the CS is given away to our friends and family. Sometimes they provide the jars and distilled water. Thank you again for all you are doing.”

What the Experts Say About Colloidal Silver and Fungal Infections

Experts agree that colloidal silver and other silver-based antimicrobials are often astonishingly effective against fungal pathogens.
Here are just a few quotes from various experts attesting to the powerful healing qualities of colloidal silver against fungal pathogens:
“In addition to its antibacterial properties, silver is also being studied as an antifungal agent.
A study published in Mycoses in 2007 indicated that silver is effective against four fungi ‘which cause major fungal infections in humans’:
Trichophyton rubrum, Candida albicans, Microsporum canis, and Aspergillus flavus.
Silver has also been studied as an antiviral, and has been shown ‘to prevent [certain viruses] from being infective.'”
— S.M. Foran, Therapeutic Properties of Silver: an Historical and Technical Review
“Silver is taken up rapidly by fungus spores, so that germination can be completely inhibited after a contact time of 1 minute or less.
Only mercury( I) and (II), and to a lesser extent copper, offer serious competition.”
— Miller, Lawrence P., and McCallan, S.E.A. 1957. Toxic action of metal ions to fungus spores. Agricultural and Food Chemistry, 5(2), 116-122.
“Silver was similarly toxic to a range of [fungal] pathogens including Pythium aphanidermatum, Thielaviopsis basicola and Fusarium oxysporum f.spp.
Most zoospores of phytophthora spp were killed by Ag+ in the range 5-50 ppb, bursting at the higher concentrations…
Zoospore cysts and germlings showed the same sensitivity to silver. Oospores were mostly killed over the range 25-100 ppb…
…It is surprising that no silver-based fungicide has been developed.”
— Slade, S.J., and Pegg, G.F. 1993. The effect of silver and other metal ions on the in vitro growth of root-rotting Phytophthora and other fungal species. Annals of Applied Biology, 122, 233-251.
“Spherical silver nanoparticles (nano-Ag) were synthesized and their antifungal effects on fungal pathogens of the skin were investigated.
Nano-Ag showed potent activity against clinical isolates and ATCC strains of Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Candida species (IC80, 1-7 microg/ml).
The activity of nano-Ag was comparable to that of amphotericin B, but superior to that of fluconazole (amphotericin B IC80, 1-5 microg/ml; fluconazole IC80, 10- 30 microg/ml).
Additionally, we investigated their effects on the dimorphism of Candida albicans. The results showed nano-Ag exerted activity on the mycelia.
Thus, the present study indicates nano-Ag may have considerable antifungal activity, deserving further investigation for clinical applications.”
— J Microbiol Biotechnol. 2008 Aug;18(8):1482-4., Kim KJ, Sung WS, Moon SK, Choi JS, Kim JG, Lee DG. Department of Microbiology, College of Natural Scienes, Kyungpook National University, Daegu 702-701, Korea.
“…the antifungal activity and its mechanism of silver, Nano-Ag specifically, was investigated.

Nano-Ag, in an IC80 range of 1-25 µg/ml, showed significant antifungal activity against T. mentagrophytes and Candida species.
Toward all fungal strains, Nano-Ag exhibited similar activity with amphotericin B, showing IC80 values of 1-5 µg/ml, but more potent activity than fluconazole, showing IC80 values of 10-30 µg/ml.

…Many studies have shown the antimicrobial effects of Nano-Ag (Klasen, 2000; Russell & Hugo, 1994; Silver, 2003), but the effects of Nano-Ag 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 Nano-Ag can inhibit the growth of dermatophytes, which cause superficial fungal infections (Kim et al., 2008).
Nano-Ag also exhibited potent antifungal effects, probably through destruction of membrane integrity (Kim et al., 2009).

To the author’s knowledge, this is the first study to apply Nano-Ag successfully to dermatophytes and pathogenic fungal strains.
Secondly, the fact that preparation method of Nano-Ag described here is cost-effective is also of importance. Therefore, it can be expected that Nano-Ag may have potential as an anti-infective agent for human fungal diseases.”

“In addition to being effective against fungi, this method of silver application has also been demonstrated to be efficacious against a broad spectrum of bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant strains.
The results of the current study demonstrate the excellent in vitro performance of silver, particularly the nanocrystalline form, against a variety of common fungal pathogens.
The most remarkable aspect of the fungicidal experiments is that nanocrystalline silver appears to be effective against the resistant spores produced by some of these organisms.”

“The present study demonstrated that anodic silver (Ag+) at low direct currents had inhibitory and fungicidal properties.
Broth dilution susceptibility tests were made on several species of Candida and one species of Torulopsis.
Growth in all isolates was inhibited by concentrations of electrically generated silver ions between 0.5 and 4.7 mg/ml, and silver exhibited fungicidal properties at concentrations as low as 1.9 ,ug/ml.
The inhibitory and fungicidal concentrations of electrically generated silver ions are lower than those reported for other silver compounds.”

“Beginning in the 1970s, several independent researchers found that silver ions easily destroy Candida and other fungi.
But it wasn’t until a pilot study during the mid- 1990s that included human patients suffering from terminal AIDS that medical researchers established solid evidence showing just how quick and effective silver ions can be in the treatment of Candida as well as HIV.
In this study, nine individuals who were near death were divided into two subgroups. One group suffered from HIV and a terrible Candida infection.
The other group suffered from both HIV and an extreme form of malnutrition (known as Wasting Syndrome).
The researchers found that in both groups the colloidal silver was capable of killing pathogens and purging the bloodstream of germ defenses in order to restore the immune system.”
— Dr. Jonathan Wright, M.D.
“Topically, it can be used to fight fungal infections of the skin or nails and to promote the healing of burns, wounds, cuts, rashes, and sunburn. It can be used on toothaches and mouth sores, as eye drops, and as a gargle to fight tooth decay and bad breath. It can also be used as sterilizer and can even be sprayed on air-conditioning filters and air ducts and vents to prevent germs from growing.”

Scientific American: Silver Has Been Used to Fight Infections for Thousands of Years

“Like werewolves and vampires, bacteria have a weakness: silver.

The precious metal has been used to fight infection for thousands of years — Hippocrates first described its antimicrobial properties in 400 bc — but how it works has been a mystery.

Now, a team led by James Collins, a biomedical engineer at Boston University in Massachusetts, has described how silver can disrupt bacteria, and shown that the ancient treatment could help to deal with the thoroughly modern scourge of antibiotic resistance.

…Collins and his team found that silver — in the form of dissolved ions — attacks bacterial cells in two main ways:

It makes the cell membrane more permeable, and it interferes with the cell’s metabolism, leading to the overproduction of reactive, and often toxic, oxygen compounds.

Both mechanisms could potentially be harnessed to make today’s antibiotics more effective against resistant bacteria, Collins says.”

Colloidal silver works to destroy bacterial, fungal and viral infections in cats and dogs just as well as it does in human beings. Furthermore, because colloidal silver is odorless, almost tasteless and non-toxic, experts say you can use it for both dogs and cats internally and externally.

If you are looking for a healthy, alternative way to take care of your pets and avoid expensive veterinary bills, colloidal silver can go a long way in helping you achieve that goal. Whether you are looking for a disease preventative, a way to clean your pet and his bedding or deal with illness and injuries, it can help you.

It is a very inexpensive, easy to make and use alternative to pharmaceutical antibiotics, and it is much more effective at stopping preventing and treating diseases in animals.ore effective at stopping preventing and treating diseases in animals.

Colloidal Silver Knocks Out Deadly Canine Parvo Virus

For example, one of the deadliest and most feared viruses among dog and kennel owners is canine parvo.  But, colloidal silver is a well-known alternative treatment for dogs suffering from parvo, and according to pet owners it has saved a lot of lives.  On the other hand, conventional veterinary treatments fail because they only have antibiotics, which do nothing to stop viral infections.  Yet, they prescribe them in cases of canine parvo and about 80% of the time, the dog dies.

It is Safe for Cats

Colloidal silver is also good for treating cats because it does not have a strong odor and will not be harmful to them if you put it on their fur.  In cases where a cat suffers from a bacterial, viral or fungal skin condition, colloidal silver can be used.

While many essential oils are effective in combating such conditions and are often safe to use on dogs, they should never be used on cats.  But, experts say you can use colloidal silver without fear.

Topical and Oral Treatments

Colloidal silver is an excellent alternative to both pharmaceutical antibiotics and prescription or over-the-counter anti-fungal treatments for cats and dogs.  It can be given to your pet in his food or water or applied to his skin or fur a few times a day.

A few drops of colloidal silver on a cotton ball makes an excellent eyewash for pets with eye infections.  Persian cats are especially prone to such infections and must have their eyes washed daily.  Using colloidal silver provides extra antibiotic protection.

One or two drops of colloidal silver in the ears of a cat or dog with an ear infection is a safe, fast and effective way to safely treat them.  There’s no need for a trip to the veterinarian or expensive pharmaceuticals.  A few drops of colloidal silver can do the job in a day or two.

More Ways to Keep Pets Healthy with Colloidal Silver

Many people like to brush their dogs’ teeth. Colloidal silver can be applied directly into a pet’s mouth to help reduce bacteria, heal oral tissues and keep the gums and teeth clean. For dogs, it can also be added to homemade tooth powders and rinses.

Whether your pets live indoors or outdoors, they will be healthier and cleaner and so will you when you use colloidal silver.

Keep your pet’s bedding clean and free of bacteria and parasites when you regularly spray it with undiluted colloidal silver and allow it to air dry.

One or two tablespoons of colloidal silver in your pet’s food or water dish will keep his immune system strong and help prevent disease.

Preserve opened cans and containers of pet food in the refrigerator and make it last a few days longer by adding a few drops of colloidal silver to it.

If your pet is injured, spray or dab colloidal silver on the wound. If possible, bandage it until it heals.

Your dogs and cats are part of your family. Care for them like family members with colloidal silver and protect them from unnecessary visits to the veterinarian. Your cats and dogs will be healthier and live longer.

How to Learn More About Colloidal Silver Uses

It is important to use colloidal silver responsibly. There is a lot of controversy about safe doses because there are no official established guidelines as there are for most other nutritional supplements. Fortunately, an excellent, free 16-page report helps to answer this question, “What’s the ‘Safest’ Daily Dosage for Colloidal Silver.” It is available exclusively from The Silver Edge.

The author of this report, natural health journalist Steve Barwick, has done extensive research on colloidal silver. He, also, wrote the 547-page, “Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual,” a veritable compendium of information on this subject, which also gives you appropriate dosages and uses for colloidal silver.

Bye-bye Bacteria

Study:

Silver Ions Kill Bacteria By

Destroying Their Ability to Replicate 

silver 3 copy

It’s been hypothesized for decades that there are basically three ways colloidal silver stops pathogens from causing infections.

You can read about those three wayshere.

Modern research has demonstrated that these hypotheses are basically correct.

Here, we see a study demonstrating that one way silver ions stop pathogens from causing infections is by penetrating the pathogen’s cell wall and binding to its DNA, thereby destroying the pathogen’s ability to replicate.

No replication, no colonization. No colonization, no infection.

Here’s in part what the study states:

“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 (E. coli) and Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), were treated with AgNO3 and studied using combined electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis.

Similar morphological changes occurred in both E. coli and S. aureus cells after Ag+ 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 detected by X-ray microanalysis suggested the antibacterial mechanism of silver:
DNA lost its replication ability and the protein became inactivated after Ag+ treatment.”

Doctor’s Guide Says Colloidal Silver Cures Pneumonia
“Dr. Marchial-Vega has had considerable clinical experience with a colloidal silver preparation that contains between 20 and 25 parts of silver per million parts of water. This preparation has proven effective in patients with HIV in quickly resolving pneumonias due to pneumocystis, streptococcal, staphylococcal, klebsiella and fungal infections. In the hospital, the therapy is administered by a special nebulizer as well as orally.”

Colloidal Silver defeats Parvo Virus

Colloidal Silver Defeats Parvo Virus

While there’s no clinical evidence that colloidal silver can be used to cure Parvovirus in dogs, there’s TONS of anecdotal evidence.

Indeed, people have been using colloidal silver on their “Parvo puppies” (and grown dogs with Parvo, as well) for many years, and usually to great success, as this video attests.

The key seems to be to keep the puppies well hydrated, because they don’t like to eat or drink when they have Parvovirus.

So Pedialyte for animals (available from the vet or pet store) or some other hydrating fluid is given orally throughout the day, using either an eyedropper (for puppies), or for larger dogs a large syringe, without the needle, of course.

Some people recommend pouring a capsule full of Lactobacillus acidophilus (beneficial digestive microorganism available at any health food store) into the Pedialyte before administering it to the dog, as the beneficial microbes will compete for space in the puppies tummy with the Parvovirus (i.e., called “competitive inhibition”) and also help prevent some of the diarrhea, as well as the damage to the stomach lining done by the virus.

Some people also recommend trying to feed the dogs with baby food (well strained chicken, for example) in order to get some nourishment into them. Others recommend a commercial product called Nutristat (available online), which is a gel-like paste containing nutrients, electrolytes, fats and protein to nourish the dog while eating is problematic due to the virus.

Finally, colloidal silver is also administered orally, multiple times throughout the day until the dog’s appetite returns and Parvo symptoms are gone.

I know a man who had a dual-organ transplant (kidney/pancreas) about four years ago. He has to take anti-rejection drugs daily to keep his immune system from rejecting the transplanted organs. That’s because the human immune system views transplanted organs as “foreign bodies,” and targets them for attack.

So because of the anti-rejection drugs he has virtually no immune system, which means he is basically a walking target for just about any kind of opportunistic infection that comes along.

What’s more, because of the nature of the business he runs, he is in constant contact with the general public during the course of the day, and has very little choice but to be around people who are sick with colds, flu, sore throats, coughs, etc. This is a very dangerous situation for any transplant patient, because, generally speaking, their immune systems are so weak from the immune-suppressing anti-rejection drugs that even the slightest infection can become life-threatening.

However, my friend tells me that each morning he washes down his anti-rejection medication with an ounce or two of colloidal silver. And in the four years since his transplant, he has not had a single serious infection. He’s had a few minor colds and sniffles, but that’s about it. (You can hear all about it, in his own words, in the newly released Colloidal Silver Secrets video, available inexpensively in both DVD and VHS formats athttp://www.lifeandhealthresearchgroup.com).

His lack of serious infections is, of course, very unusual given his circumstances. Normally, it is quite common for transplant patients on immune-suppressing anti-rejection drugs to be afflicted with a number of infections every year, any of which can become quite serious. In fact, many transplant patients become so afraid of catching an infection, they carry doctor’s face masks with them wherever they go, in case they end up in the presence of someone who is coughing and choking with some kind of infection. Other transplant patients simply won’t go out in public very much during certain times of the year when colds and flu are prevalent. But my friend doesn’t let fear of infection stop him. He does what he has to do to run his business and make a living. And he depends on colloidal silver to keep him relatively infection-free all year long.

It makes me wonder if colloidal silver would help with other immune-compromised individuals as well. For the past 14 years, I’ve personally used small amounts of colloidal silver daily in order to keep chronic fatigue syndrome at bay. And I’ve heard from a number of colloidal silver users who are afflicted with more serious conditions, such as AIDS, that while it has done very little to lower their HIV count, it does seem to help prevent opportunistic secondary bacterial and fungal infections from taking hold. It is these secondary opportunistic bacterial and fungal infections that kill many AIDS patients each year.

Of course, there are no medical studies to demonstrate that colloidal silver can protect immune-compromised individuals. Just anecdotal information such as the examples above. But it is interesting to ponder, and you have to wonder why the medical authorities don’t look more closely at colloidal silver as a possible solution to at least some of the very serious problems encountered by immune-compromised patients.
