I had a used plastic nose spray bottle left over from using the Afrin for sinus infection. I washed it out very well, let it dry for a few days and then filled it with a 500ppm colloidal silver water solution that I had bought online. I then put one drop of 5% Lugol's Iodine (also bought online) into the bottle of colloidal silver water solution and shook it up well. I then proceeded to put two to three sprays of this into each nostril while sniffing it deeply into my sinuses...did this three or four times each day ending at bedtime. I have used this to kill my sinus infection and it kills mine in anywhere from a few days to a week of daily use.
I have also used Colloidal silver 500ppm internally at 1/4 tsp four times a day taken internally on colds and also the flu and it works well to kill the germs that are causing the illness. I have also used just Lugol's Iodine 5% in a cup of warm coffee in the morning.
Not telling anyone else to do what I do as I am not a doctor, but I have healed myself with these methods for many years. The way I use the Lugol's on myself and my spouse is: I put 6 drops of Lugol's Iodine 5% into my one cup of coffee in the morning along with a teaspoon of coconut oil and yes, I do use sugar in my coffee. I put the six drops of Lugol's into a glass of water in the middle of the day and drink it all in an hour, then again before bedtime. This works for us very well. Thanks for having this site to help people help themselves and I hope this helps someone as it has me and mine. Read up on it, there are many nay sayers out there to try and keep us from healing ourselves, to make us have to rely on big pharma but I for one don't fall for all of their crap they try to tell us. I believe that we can heal ourselves but we do have to do our research on things very well. Like I said, I am not a doctor nor am I telling anyone to use this and I would not take this much of iodine but just to give you an idea of how much has been used...Here is what I read online:
Just to give you an idea of how high iodine dosages have been taken to in the past we have to revisit the 1930s when iodine was still a universal medicine, present in the US Pharmacopeia and was used at much higher dosages than anyone even dreams of using today. The usual dose for treatment was 300 mgs (46 drops of full strength Lugol's) to 1 gm (1000 mg, 154 drops).
“Extremely high doses of iodine can have serious side effects, but only a small fraction of such extreme doses are necessary to kill influenza viruses, ” continues Derry who tells us, “In 1945, a breakthrough occurred when J.D. Stone and Sir McFarland Burnet (who later went on to win a Nobel Prize for his Clonal Selection Theory) exposed mice to lethal effects of influenza viral mists.
The lethal disease was prevented by putting iodine solution on mice snouts just prior to placing them in chambers containing influenza viruses.”
