How to Use Colloidal Silver for Strep Throat

A friends 6 y/o son had a fever and was had pain in his lower side abdomen, they thought it was a appendicitis, he took him to the doctor and it turned out to be strep throat. He has pain in the lower side of the abdomen because there was a infection. He took him home and gave him 16oz bottle of 15ppm CS and told his son drink as much as you like or can. His son drank the whole bottle in one night and the strep / fever / pain / swelling in the back of his mouth was gone the very next morning.

Oil of Oregano and Colloidal Silver spray cured my daughter's strep throat. I called my naturopath, who is also and MD, and he told me to use the colloidal silver and probiotics. I also added the oregano for safe measure. I dosed her just like "conventional" antibiotics, three times a day. Oil of Oregano - 1 capsule 3x a day (with food or it will upset the tummy!! )

Colliodal Silver (10 parts per million) spray to the back of the throat - 3x a day. Probiotics - 3x a day on a empty stomach.. At least 2 hours before or after the natural antibiotics.. Or it will render the probiotics ineffective. She was fever free within 2 doses, and sore throat free after the first day. I believe I kept her on the system for 7 days.

Word of caution - That man that turned blue from the silver spray?? He didn't use it like an antibiotic and took it every day for years. Don't do that! Use it like a medicine (only for bacterial infections) and only for 1 week at a time, and you will be fine. :)

The man who turned blue was taking silver proteins, not colloidal silver.

I work in a health food store so I hear a lot of home remedies. We also have great products. When someone comes in asking for something for sore throat the first thing I show them is a product by Peaceful Mountain called "Throat Rescue". It is a spray that has ionic silver in it. They have proven that it works better than some antibiotics against strep. I have had people tell me that they gargle with straight apple cider vinegar for a sore throat. I have read that zinc kills viruses on contact and this is why the zinc lozenges are so popular. The cayenne pepper tea mentioned is easier for me to take if I use a liquid cayenne extract instead of the powder. Anything that is marketed to improve the immune system ought to be helpful if you have a sore throat. Some great herbs to have on hand are garlic, goldenseal, echinacea, and andrographis. Most people are not aware of how important the probiotics are for the immune system or how important it is to keep the bowel clean. Also, liver support is so important to our overall health.

This is what we use in our house, too. Peaceful Mountain Collidal Silver. I have a hard time with antibiotics and was very glad to find this the last time I had a case of strep that just wouldn't go away. iherb sells it and I'm never without it now. My daughter just got strep throat and I'm checking the boards to see if there is anything else I can give her to help it clear up any faster.
