Using Colloidal Silver for Mononucleosis (Kissing Disease) and Other Epstein Barr Virus Infections
While there’s no clinical evidence that colloidal silver is effective for mononucleosis (aka mono) or other related Epstein-Barr viral infections, the anecdotal evidence continues to grow.
Many colloidal silver users say they were able to beat their mononucleosis, glandular fever or even chronic fatigue syndrome infections (all caused by Epstein-Barr virus) once they added colloidal silver to their nutritional supplement regimen.
Here are just a few of the anecdotal reports I’ve seen in which Epstein-Barr virus-related infections such as mononucleosis, glandular fever and even chronic fatigue syndrome were beaten once colloidal silver usage was started…
In the above testimonial we see that a dosage of one teaspoon of colloidal silver given twice per day worked, and it worked within three days, which is quite astonishing.
This was obviously a milder case of mono, compared to the case described in the earlier testimonial. Sometimes one’s colloidal silver dosage has to be adjusted in accord with severity, which is to say, mild cases might need less colloidal silver, whereas difficult or chronic cases might need significantly more for a short period of time.
An article posted on the Green Mom website states:
“When I had mono seventeen years ago, my mom brought over a bottle of colloidal silver for me. I didn’t know the first thing about the stuff, but my mom is a lifelong health nut and I trusted her. I don’t know if it helped speed my recovery, but I did start improving directly after I started taking it.”
Naturopath Elizabeth Noble, author of Nature’s Amazing Mononucleosis Cures, states that “Colloidal silver (at 5 parts per million) is recommended at 1-4 teaspoons a day as a preventative. It is safe for extended periods of time. In times of acute illness this can be increased to 3-12 teaspoons per day for up to 30 days before dropping to a maintenance dose…I personally take colloidal silver twice a day at a maintenance dose. I will increase it to four times a day, at the first sign of an infection appearing. I also find it great for kids as you can pop it into their water or juice, and it does not really have a taste…for children aged 4-12, one third to one half the recommended adult dose is suggested. Please check with your health practitioner for further guidance.”
Natural health practitioners often recommend colloidal silver for Epstein-Barr virus-related illnesses, as well, including for glandular fever which is more severe form of mono, and is similar to tonsillitis. According to Ayurvedic practitioner Nish Joshi of the Joshi Clinic in London, “I give colloidal silver as a treatment for coughs, colds, sore throats and stomach upsets, and use it in conjunction with other treatments for glandular fever.”
Another woman wrote that colloidal silver healed her husband
of a nasty case of chronic fatigue syndrome, which, as I mentioned earlier, is
widely considered to be caused by the same Epstein-Barr virus that causes mono
and glandular fever. She stated:
"My husband had chronic fatigue and could never stay awake and was achy all the time. I started giving him colloidal silver and now I have to tell him to go to bed. He has more energy and is not tired all the time. Started out with 2 ounces twice a day, now down to 1 ounce twice a day. Also the family takes it.” -- K.M., Oregon
Another woman wrote in to tell us about her experience with Epstein-Barr virus and Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS):
"I have my own Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator I purchased from you and have been taking colloidal silver on an
ongoing basis for about the last year. I've taken anywhere from a teaspoon to
tablespoon a day as I have had Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) and then it went into
chronic fatigue syndrome (CFIDS) back in 1990 and then relapsed in 2000 .
winter I always got bronchitis and my doctor would find mycoplasma in my blood
every year which causes pneumonia. I would have to be very careful so I would
not fall back into Epstein-Barr virus even though it was many years later. The
relapse that I experienced in 2000 was caused from getting bronchitis to begin
with in that year. I have fought with the fear ever since of possibly relapsing
again, since it happened to me back then.
As you can see, many people have found profound relief from Epstein-Barr virus symptoms by using colloidal silver. Silver seems to drive the Epstein-Barr virus into its dormant state, so healing is faster and the symptoms of the disease disappear more rapidly than they otherwise might.
Smaller Silver Particles Work Better
According to the WikiHow web page the covers natural treatment options for Epstein-Barr virus:
“Consider colloidal silver. Colloidal silver is a liquid preparation containing small atomic clusters of electrically charged silver. The medical literature shows numerous viruses successfully treated with silver solutions.
But efficacy depends on size (particles should be less than 10nm in diameter) and purity (no salts or protein in the solution). Subnanometer-sized silver particles become highly electrically charged and can destroy the most rapidly mutating viral pathogens.”
That’s quite interesting. The author doesn’t talk about the dosage to be used. But he does mention that for silver particles to be effective against viral infections like Epstein Barr virus, they have to be very small “subnanometer-sized.”
And indeed, numerous clinical studies have demonstrated that the smaller the silver particles are, the more effective they are against both viruses and bacteria.
That’s because, while conventional colloidal silver products can contain silver particles and clusters as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm or larger, a typical virus can range in size from only 20 nm to 500 nm. And when the silver particles are larger than the virus itself, the viruses can’t absorb them. This means the silver particles can’t get inside the virus to disrupt its DNA, which is what stops the virus from being able to replicate and cause infection.
Of course, the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge allows you to produce your own high-quality colloidal silver with tiny, subnanometer-sized silver particles as low as .8 nm, which is a fraction of a single nanometer. (See photos showing the difference between tiny, subnanometer-sized silver particles, and standard silver particles, here.)
So being able to use extremely small silver particles when a viral infection is in play appears to be an essential element in terms of whether or not the colloidal silver treatment will be successful.
Other Natural Substances that
Help Again Mono/Epstein-Barr virus
There are other natural substances widely considered to be helpful for mononucleosis infections. Extra virgin coconut oil, for example, contains the antiviral substance known as monolaurin. Many parents of mononucleosis victims swear by giving their child three tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil per day. They claim it relieves the sore throat which often accompanies mono, and dramatically reduces the symptoms resulting in faster healing time.
Pharmacist Dr. Izabella Wentz, agrees, stating that “Monolaurin/lauric acid is one of the components of coconut oil, and has been found to be active against the Epstein-Barr virus.” She also recommends colloidal silver for immune support.
Another helpful supplement, according to website accounts, is high-dose vitamin C, given to bowel tolerance. In other words, according to online accounts from parents who use vitamin C on their children with mono, one might start out taking 500 mg. of vitamin C three times a day, and then gradually increase that to 1,000 mg. of vitamin C three times a day, or maybe even 2,000 mg. given three times a day until bowel tolerance is reached.
The term “bowel tolerance” means that at some point the vitamin C will cause loose stools or even outright diarrhea. That’s when you gradually begin to taper back down from the high dose you’ve reached, until the bowels normalize. According to proponents of this technique, you then stay at that dose until all viral symptoms are gone. Once symptoms are gone, some people recommend returning to the original starting dosage for a few weeks, as a “just in case” measure to help prevent a recurrence of the infection.
Based on online accounts I’ve read, the antiviral amino acid lysine is also considered by many parents to be helpful with mono and other manifestations of the Epstein-Barr virus. It’s generally used according to the instructions on the bottle. But some parents say up to 1500 mg. per day – taken in divided doses, i.e., 500 mg. three times a day – is what helped their children with mono.
For particularly stubborn cases of mono or glandular fever, many people actually recommend taking all three of the above-mentioned supplements. And I see no reason why small doses of colloidal silver can’t be taken also, throughout the course of the day, until the viral infection is conquered.
However, please remember that I’m not a doctor, so nothing I say should ever be taken as “prescriptive” in nature.” I’m just a natural health journalist, sharing my own experiences with colloidal silver, as well as the experiences of others.
How to Make Your Own
Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver
A Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge allows you to make your own high-quality colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart.
Compare that to major health food store brands which usually cost between $20 and $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle, and you’ll see that the savings are astonishing.
In fact, compared to health food store prices for colloidal silver, your very first one-quart batch of micro-particle colloidal silver actually pays for the entire cost the generator. Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first time you use it?
Obviously, having the ability to make your own high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for only pennies per quart is about as close as you’ll ever get to having "free" colloidal silver for the rest of your life, any time you or a family member, friend or loved one needs it.
And because the silver particles produced by this amazing breakthrough in colloidal silver-making technology are as low as .8 nm – a fraction of a single nanometer – their effectiveness against pathogens can be astonishing.
Because of their extremely small size, the tiny, submicroscopic silver particles are up to 1,000 times more bioavailable than conventional silver particles. This means the human body is able to absorb 99-100% of the silver, send it throughout the body to kill pathogens, and then excrete it with ease, afterwards.
Plus, it’s now known that these tiny silver micro-particles are able to kill off entire colonies of pathogens with far greater effectiveness than conventional colloidal silver particles, because of the “zombie effect” described in this recent article about brand new research out of Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Perhaps that’s why so many thousands upon thousands of people absolutely rave over the effectiveness of their micro-particle colloidal silver, as you can see at this web page full of real-life colloidal silver success stories.
