Colloidal Silver (more accurately "ionic silver" the way I make it and most folks make it, since we are using electrolysis rather than shaving small
pieces of silver) goes a long way in preventing and killing bacteria and virus. All one needs is some pure silver, I use .9999 purity, some wire,
distilled water (must be distilled to avoid unwanted chemical reactions!!!) and 9v batteries. It will stop colds in their tracks and can be used
externally as well to clean wounds. It can even be used as an enema to clean the colon. It kills pathogens physically so there is no need to build
it up like antibiotics. Here is a link:Colloidal Silver Instructions
It also works great as a house cleaner (like on kitchen cutting boards).
My year old son had an eye infection awhile back. Took him to the doc and the doc gave us some medicine with warning about painful burning during
administration and restraining the baby while administering etc. I decided to try the silver first. Two applications in one day and the infection
was gone. Totally painless as it is basically just water. Threw the other junk from the doc that had to be painfully applied over several days in
Warning: unpure colloidal silver can cause argyrea (gray colored skin) so do it correctly!
Additionally getting one's immune system in top shape is helpful. For better gut function eat L-Glutamine supplements. This helps your lower
intestine grow stronger cells, absorb nutrients better and fight infections. Classic vitamin C is another great immuno booster.
For a great natural immune booster that has lots of goodness built in I recommend hemp protein powder (no THC in it). Here is the amino profile from
it. Your body has a much easier time digesting these aminos from a plant source rather than animal (trust me though, I'll eat a mouse if I need to).
The little arrows mean that amino is "essential" meaning your body cannot create it out of anything else, it needs this pure form to survive. I
usually just down 2 tablespoons of this stuff in distilled water twice a day. After a month or so of doing it I felt a difference, I stopped for a
couple of months and felt a difference too so went back to it.
Hemp oil also has a perfect Omega 3,6,9 balance for that end of health.
If one wants to deal with antibiotics then I make the observation that farm animals often need many of the same antibiotics that humans do, so next
time you are buying cow feed
grab some antibiotics.
Really getting your immune system cranking will help in preventing bacteria and viruses from being able to survive inside your body because the bottom
line is you can't keep them out.
Also pay attention to little things such as using a paper towel to open a public restroom door on the way out after you wash your hands (fecal matter
from the folks who didn't wash is probably swimming all over the handle) or using disinfectant wipe after you were in a store and touched the
counter. Noro virus can live for a couple of days on a counter top...yuk! All it takes is there to be germs on a countertop at a store that you
placed your hand on and then rubbed your nose and then your immune system is fighting to kick it out when the invasion could have been prevented with
hygiene. For example, soap and water kills birdflu.
Eating whole foods as much as possible helps as well. We live on whole grains, beans, vegetables and meat maybe once or twice a week. I think eating
unprocessed foods helps boost your immune response. Eating this way is actually pretty cheap too.
On the quitting smoking thing. I quite back in 2000. Tough it out!! It is so worth it. I did it cold turkey. The first couple of weeks were hell
but now I simply cannot understand I used to inhale smoke, it just doesn't make sense. Quitting will make you feel so much better! :rol:
