S.O.S. IONIC SILVER is a health product. It is not intended to diagnose treat or cure any disease and has not been evaluated by the FDA.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that no minimum dose has been scientifically established for Ionic Silver, but maximum dosages are well within safe international EPA guidelines. The uses of Ionic Silver shown below are compiled based on anecdotal evidence. They are included ONLY as a starting reference point to give a general idea of how some people have used ionic silver as a remedy. These ideas are expressed in generalities and are by no means to be construed as scientifically acquired evidence. The following is a collection of general suggestions that have been made by individuals who have used Ionic Silver. Please note that these are based on user testimonials and are not definitive scientific studies. Always consult your health care professional in the context of any problems or treatments.
Saturate a cotton ball or pad,use in place of your regular toner. Using the spray bottle, spray on skin after washing. Silver functions as an antibacterial and disinfectant. Also helps heal skin fast and reduces scarring.
Silver is an anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and an astringent and enhances oxygen delivery. All necessary components for the relief of allergies. When inflamed or irritated spray with nasal sprayer 3 times repeat 4-6 times a day. For maintenance spray once a day. If eyes are bothered by allergies drop silver in each eye. Use in nose,throat and eyes before exposure to known environmental allergens. This will lessen a reaction.
BURNS, SORES & CUTS:
Spray directly onto the wound. Leave uncovered and wet for 5-20 minutes per application. Apply one to three times per day, depending on severity. For deep cuts on the fingertips, fill cap or shallow dish and soak in solution for 5 minutes several times a day. Personal reports suggest that the burns and cuts will heal very rapidly. One little girl had splashed scalding oil on her face and had a large burn area. Her mother sprayed the solution directly on the burn twice daily and left it wet with the solution for 15-20 minutes. The girl showed an 85%-90% recovery within two weeks. Six months later, there was virtually no visible scarring on the girl. Bedsores heal faster with silver applied.
CANKERS & OTHER GUM/MOUTH SORES:
Approximately one tablespoon, gently swishing in mouth for at least five minutes. Repeat this three to four times a day. Noticeable improvements within 24 hours have been commonly reported. Soak a piece of gauze in silver and pack against area in need. Repeat often.
Because of impaired circulation, it is common that for diabetic's cuts and scratches heal more slowly. Taking Ionic Silver appears to shorten healing time and also to reduce pain in the extremities. The solution should be both taken internally (1-2 tsp per day) and sprayed directly on affected areas two to three times daily. Soaked gauze placed and left on affected area will speed healing and bring down inflammation.
DIAPER & OTHER RASHES:
Spray affected area at each change of diaper. Leave wet and put on new diaper. For other skin irritation and rashes, spray affected area and leave wet for at least five minutes. Repeat two or three times per day. Expect improvement in most cases within 24 hours.
Concerned about clean surfaces? Effectively inhibits surface contamination without alcohol or bleach. Eliminates air-borne bacteria and disease causing microbes. Mist kitchen sponges, towels, cutting boards to eliminate E.Coli and salmonella bacteria preventing food poisoning. Spray on any surface and let dry.
Streptococcus pneumonia or H. influenza bacteria cause most ear infections. Ionic Silver has been proven to kill both organisms. Warm silver in dropper bottle in warm water. Lie down on bed or couch with affected ear facing up. Place four to five drops of ionic silver in ear. Remain in this lying position for a minimum of 3-5 minutes,then tip and let run out. Repeat as often as possible. Noticeable improvement has been reported in as little as 4-24 hours. 1 drop in the ear may be used and left in.
The US EPA has reported that silver is neither an eye nor skin irritant. Silver has also been used in the eyes of newborn babies for over a hundred years because of its ability to combat eye infections. Drop a few drops into the eye, every 2 hours to combat infection. Good results have been reported within 1-3 days. To alleviate sore or tired eyes, use the same as directed above. Safe for contact lenses. A drop a day keeps pathogens away! If an eye infection does not quickly begin to improve, see your opthamologist immediately.
FLU & COLDS:
Take one tablespoon by mouth two to three times per day minimum. Hold the solution in the mouth (gargle, if possible) for one to two minutes before swallowing. I have recommended taking an oral dose of silver hydrosol every 30 minutes held in the mouth for the first day along with nasal spray. Second day dose every hour, and continue through the third day.
Provided one takes the ionic silver at the onset of the flu, and at more frequent doses noticeable improvement has been reported in one to three days. If the flu has become entrenched in the body, improvement is slower. Use your nebulizer to deliver silver directly to the lungs as you take your oral doses, especially if you are susceptible to chest infections. I recommend you invest in a nebulizer for home use. Do not let up on frequent doses until 3 days after feeling better. Use your other immune supportive supplements and herbs.
Ionic Silver has been proven to kill six types of bacteria that commonly cause food poisoning. Drink one ounce of solution at onset. Positive results have been reported in as little as 10 minutes, and as long as three hours. In some severe cases of bacterial food poisoning, 2-8oz have been taken at onset with positive results in 1 -4 hours.
FOOD & DRINK:
Our silver can be used a safe natural food preservative. Only a few drops is needed to make food and drink last much longer. A few drops to a 1/2 tsp in opened foods stop the growth of bacteria, virus and fungus. Prevent spoiling, fermenting, & curdling in foods. Foods like milk, mayonnaise, add to picnic foods that sit out. Always stir silver in and mix well.
FUNGUS INFECTIONS OF THE FEET:
Ionic Silver has also been used for mycotic toenails. File and shine off the toenail (to increase porosity) and then spray the solution directly on the infected toenail or apply the solution directly with a saturated cotton ball and tape to keep in place. Get solution under nail if possible. Repeat two to three times daily. Spray silver in shoes, in between toes, or soak area in solution.
Excellent results have been reported using Ionic Silver to alleviate the burning and itching of insect bites and stings. Relief from a multitude of different bugs bites have been reported including, mosquitoes, spiders, hornets and bees. Immediately spray the affected area or better yet, saturate a gauze soaked in silver and bandaid to affected area. Re-soak gauze often and leave on.
Spray on rear of throat and gargle with at least 1 tablespoon three to four times per day. Expect relief in two to three days. If the laryngitis is accompanied by a sore throat, see the section on "sore throat" below.
Nursing mothers may be hesitant to take antibiotics while nursing their babies. It has been reported that one teaspoon four times a day has cleared up mastitis in two days. May also saturate cloth or gauze and place directly over affected area.
Irrigate with one-half to a whole teaspoon per nostril, three times per day. Use nasal spray bottle and spray 3-4 sprays every 2 hours. Relief can be noticeable in 24 hours, with complete remission often occurring in two to three days.
Both the antibacterial and the anti-inflammatory properties of Ionic Silver may play a role in its effect on sore throats. Take one to two tablespoons (up to 2 oz), gargle for 1 minute, and swallow. Repeat two or three times per day or every 15 - 30 minutes in 4-hour cycles. The throat spray bottle should be filled and spray 15-30 sprays directly on throat every hour. It may also be helpful to fill your nasal spray bottle with silver solution and spray into the nasal passages. Reports indicate noticeable improvement with 12-48 hours or within a day.
In laboratory tests it has been proven to kill two of the primary bacteria implicated in tooth decay. Take one or two teaspoons, circulate the solution in your mouth for a long as possible then swallow. Use gauze soaked in silver and hold over affected area. This will help until proper dental treatment is available.
URINARY TRACT INFECTION:
A woman who had a recurrent urinary tract infection for five years, reported that antibiotics would appear to kill the infection, but that it would reappear soon after she stopped taking the antibiotic. She took two teaspoons of ionic silver a day of for ten days and her doctor told her that the infection had cleared up completely. In laboratory tests it has been shown to be able to kill seven different types of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections.
VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION:
Take 1 teaspoon by mouth three times per day. Use in a douche twice a day. Set your 4-ounce bottle in warm water to warm silver slightly before use. Users have reported that infections have cleared up in as little as two days.
VIRAL INFECTIONS (CHRONIC):
Take 1 -2 oz every 4 hours. Depending on status of infection, results may take anywhere between 3 weeks - 4 months. (Improvements can be measured by drop in viral loads or elevation of symptoms)
Add 1/2 teaspoon to every gallon of healthy water to make it germ-free and safe for drinking. Water containing known germs and other dangerous pathogens can be made drinkable by adding 2-3 tablespoons of Ionic Silver per 5 liters or approx 1 1/2 gallon of water.
VEGETABLES and FOODS:
Spray ionic silver on your vegetables or food and note that they will last two to three times longer. Add silver to seed soaking water and spray sprouts.
HEALING CRISIS or "Herxheimer" reaction:
After ingesting initial dosages of Ionic Silver one might experience a brief detox effect such as a sluggish feeling, mild headaches, or mild diarrhea. This experience is a result of the silver very efficiently killing off too many pathogens too fast for the body to dispose of through the normal eliminative organs. When the body sloughs off a great many entrenched toxins at once, the eliminatory organs can become overloaded in which it is recommended to drink lots of extra water. If these symptoms appear this is a sign that the Ionic Silver is WORKING. If you experience discomfort reduce the dosage of Ionic Silver temporarily and then gradually increase as symptoms subside. Tailor the dosage to the needs of your body.
When temporary symptoms do arise, it's good to know that silver also enhances the clean-up phase of resulting debris via the immune system response.
SAFETY: Remember Ionic Silver is a safe product and you won't make a mistake by taking the 'wrong dose'...simply because there isn't really a wrong dose. Let common sense and logic prevail. SO DON'T WORRY! IF YOU ARE STILL WORRIED, PLEASE SEE EPA (US ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY) GUIDELINES BELOW.
United States Environmental Protection Agency The EPA reference dose (safe daily intake for 70 years for a person weighing 154 lb) is 14 teaspoons of 5-PPM ionic silver per day.
Most references suggest 1 Tablespoon per day as a supplement. This is much lower than the EPA allowance. Children under 12 would generally take one-half the adult dosage. See our General Guide for more references. There have been many reports of excellent results with homeopathic doses of only a few drops per day.
Ultimately, it is the condition of your immune system and level of resident infections that would determine your required doses for good health.
