While reading various articles regarding the new flu outbreak, I happened across information about using Silver Colloid as a treatment for FMS/CFS. After reading how this process works (silver nanoparticles binding with bacteria/fungi and removal from the body) I decided to try it. Having been ill for over 35 yrs. I felt I had nothing to lose. The following is an account of my progress thus far.
*May 1, 2009 - Began treatment with 1/2 tsp of Silver Colloid in a.m. and p.m.
I continued this for one week without noticing any real difference in pain or fatigue.
*May 8, 2009 - Increased dosage to 1 tsp. 2x daily for 3 days, then to 3x daily.
I continued this for another week without noticing any difference...or so I thought.
*May 14 - 16, 2009 - Became ill with what were flu like symptoms, but without fever or other signs.
I was so fatigued that I basically stayed in bed 3 days, lots of night sweats, thinking I had a virus. During this period I did not take the silver colloid.
*May 17, 2009 - Finally being able to move without feeling nauseaous, I took a trip to the local urgent care facility.
EEG and bloodwork were fine. No explanation for the lethargy...conclusion: May be viral. Later in the evening I recalled what I had heard about the herxing symptoms that could occur while on treatment. This event takes place while the treatment is working, but the body can not rid itself of the toxins as quickly as they are being broken down. After realizing that what I had experienced for 4 days was herxing, I now know that the Silver Colloid was working and healing my body.
*May 18, 2009 - I had a day that I could describe as great. Very low pain, energy increase...it was the first time in years that I felt almost normal.
*May 19, 2009 - Began treatment with the Silver Colloid, but decreasing the dosage to 2 tsp. per day. It is another day with low pain and i've been able to accomplish daily tasks without tremendous fatigue. I can honestly say "I feel good." It's been a long time since I could say those words.
While I am not advocating use of a particular silver product, it is important to purchase one that is not saturated with mostly ionized water or other substance. I am taking a product that is made with nanosilver particles. True Silver Colloid is yellow in color...not clear. The dosage will vary depending upon individual body weight, toxins involved and herxing reaction. I will keep this journal updated with my progress as it unfolds (be it good or bad). In the meantime, here is some information about this type of treatment and the basis for its foundation. There is a free booklet that may be downloaded, but be sure to read the updated portion on the site explaining about correction to research done after the writer passed on. His work has been updated.
Again, I can only testify to what my experience has been with this treatment. It has been years since i've felt this good. While i'm not looking forward to more herxing, if it produces a few good days a month (as the past two have been) it's certainly worth the price.
