Colloidal Silver versus Cold and Flu Viruses

Here’s a brief review of some of the articles I’ve written over the past few years on how to use colloidal silver effectively during the cold and flu season, including how to use colloidal silver prophylactically to help prevent colds and flu infections altogether…how use colloidal silver to nip a suspected cold or flu bug in the bud before it fully gets started…and how to use colloidal silver to deal with a full-blown cold or flu infection.

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

As most experienced colloidal silver users realize, it’s often easier to stop a viral cold or flu infection before it really gets started than it is to stop it once it’s full-blown.

As one colloidal silver user recently shared on the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook:

“I am so grateful for colloidal silver and the antiviral properties!!

I work in the healthcare field and usually catch 2-3 nasty colds that turn into bronchitis/asthma. Since upping my preventative dose and doubling it during exposure, I have stopped 3 colds dead in their tracks!!

I can feel the cold coming on with a sore throat and sinus irritation, and that is the only symptom I have experienced!

My family is quite amazed to watch this happen, and has started to follow in my footsteps when they feel a cold or whatever coming on!! Thank you, thank you…”

— Jennifer D.

I agree with Jennifer that prophylactic use of colloidal silver – particularly during cold and flu season – is the most effective way to stave off a potential head cold or upper respiratory viral infection.

Taking colloidal silver regularly during cold or flu season often prevents colds and flu altogether. And even if you don’t like taking colloidal silver regularly, taking it at the very first sign of a cold or flu often knocks the budding infection out within just one or two days.

Regular Daily Usage

You might want to read my article “Beating the Winter Cold and Flu Season With Colloidal Silver,” at this link, which explains the clear connection between regular daily colloidal silver usage and higher immunity, which in turn results in fewer colds and flu, or at the very least, cold and flu infections of shorter duration and reduced severity.

The above-linked article also explains a neat little trick for beating back a full-blown cold or flu infection by adding red wine and lemon juice to your colloidal silver to help dissolve the lipid coating that protects cold and flu viruses.

According to Anders Sultan, Sweden’s largest manufacturer of colloidal silver, this simple do-it-yourself remedy allows the colloidal silver to penetrate and destroy the cold or flu virus much easier.

The “Ear Trick”…

But what if you haven’t been taking colloidal silver regularly and you feel that first twinge of a viral infection coming on? No problem. There’s another neat little trick you can try in order to stop the infection dead in its tracks.

You can read about it in my article, “Colloidal Silver and Colds: A Safe, Simple and FAST Way to Stop Colds Before They Get Started!” at this link.

The gist of the article is that a few drops of colloidal silver used in the ears at the very first sign of a budding cold or flu will often stop it from developing into a full-blown infection, literally overnight. Learn why, in the article at the above link.

The Frightening Truth

Keep in mind that according to the Scripps Research Institute there are literally thousands of known viruses, and approximately 200 viruses that cause disease in humans. And approximately 100 of the most prevalent of those can cause colds and flu.

What’s more, it’s almost impossible to get away from viruses. You can’t hide from them.

According to a study in the Journal of Virology, in each cubic meter of air we breathe, there can be anywhere from 1.6 million to 40 million viruses, depending upon the time of year, weather conditions and other factors.

So at any point in time, you’re quite literally living in an invisible fog of viruses, and breathing them in.

And since the average human breathes approximately 0.01 cubic meters of air
each minute, this means you very likely inhale at least several hundred thousand viruses every minute, according to science journalist Malcolm Tang.

While most of these viruses are not generally harmful to humans, it nevertheless makes it more and more difficult to avoid infection during cold and flu season due to the strong prevalence of cold and flu viruses at that time.

Indeed, sooner or later you’re bound to run across a cold or flu virus that antimicrobial silver, with all of its broad-spectrum of activity, might not prove fully effective against.

Thankfully, there are additional nutritional interventions you can use to help augment the effectiveness of your colloidal silver when you get caught in the grips of a nasty cold or flu virus despite your best attempts to avoid it.

These include supplements that boost your metabolism and immunity, and can help reduce the most crippling symptoms of the infection, as well.

To learn how I handled one such case several years ago when my wife and I came down with a nasty flu bug, see my previous article titled “Colloidal Silver and the Flu Epidemic.” You’ll learn the specific nutritional intervention we used – along with temporarily increased colloidal silver usage – to help turn the tide.

What Colloidal Silver Users Say…

Finally, remember to take good care of yourself during the harsher winter months, including good diet, regular exercise and plenty of fresh air and rest if at all possible.

There’s no nutritional supplement or drug on the face of the earth that can protect you from cold or flu viruses if you allow yourself to become overly fatigued, poorly nourished, worn out or otherwise out-of-shape.

And remember to take your colloidal silver daily during cold and flu season (see my short colloidal silver safe dosage report, here), in order to help prevent viral infections from ever getting started.

Or at least turn to colloidal silver quickly when you feel that first little twinge of a cold or flu bug starting, and use some of the tricks and tactics I’ve discussed in the articles I’ve linked to above to help nip it in the bud before it fully takes hold.

As reader V. Swinney, from the great state of Texas recently wrote to me:

“I’ve been using colloidal silver since 1994…It’s been years since I have been to a doctor for antibiotics. I’ve quit taking flu shots some time ago. I have not had the flu since I have been using colloidal silver. And neither have I had a cold.”

Or as Nancy S., from Topeka, KS, recently wrote:

“My husband and I drink a shot glass (about 1 oz) of colloidal silver every night before bed. We’ve been doing this for about 4 years now. Neither one of us has been sick since. And I should mention, we’ve been around people who were sick and didn’t catch anything.”

And as Karen H., of Tequesta, FL recently wrote:

“My friend, Ed, had gotten the flu several times in the past, so he knew what the flu felt like and knew the difference between a cold and the flu. He began to experience several flu symptoms and knew he was in for at least 2 weeks of misery.

So he made up some colloidal silver and drank several ounces every hour, on the hour, all day long. He went to bed that night, and when he woke up the next morning, it was completely gone. Not even a hint of a symptom.

Now, he said, most people would think he wasn’t really coming down with the flu. But his symptoms were headache, body aches, scratchy throat and sinuses, and extreme fatigue. He said the only time he ever felt that way in the past was from the flu.

He is absolutely convinced the silver stopped the flu virus dead in its tracks before it could get a good stronghold in his body. Thanks!”

And as registered nurse, Sherri, recently wrote me:

“I take 30cc of Colloidal Silver daily. I do not get the flu, or colds. If I do feel that I’m getting congested, I’ll take 60cc Colloidal Silver daily, and the signs and symptoms of the cold goes away in a couple days.”

And as D.V., from Pleasant Grove, Utah, wrote to say:

“I started using colloidal silver about 15 years ago. I take some almost every day. And when I feel any cold symptoms coming on I increase the dosage each day to several teaspoons and have not developed any colds or flu in all these years.”

A Few Last-Second Tips…

Here’s a few more tips you might find helpful during cold and flu season:

If you find yourself with an earache during cold and flu season, the simple solution is to use several drops of colloidal silver in the ear, as described in the short video, Cure an Earache With Colloidal Silver.

If you find yourself with a sinus infection during cold and flu season, the simple solution is to use colloidal silver intranasally. There are two highly effective ways to do this:

One, you can follow the suggestions in this short video on how to Cure Sinus Infections With Colloidal Silver and a Neti Pot.

Or two, you can follow the suggestions in this short video on how to Use Colloidal Silver in a Nasal Spray Bottle.

And if you find yourself with a sore throat, or even strep throat, during cold and flu season, here’s a short article on Colloidal Silver and Strep Throat that explains how to beat it quickly and easily!

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that colloidal silver can make the cold and flu season much more bearable, if you follow the suggestions and ideas in the articles linked to above.
