Whooping Cough Strikes Again; Colloidal Silver to the Rescue!
Whooping Cough Strikes Again; Colloidal Silver to the Rescue!
by Steve Barwick, author, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual
According to this news article, a large number of youngsters across Los Angeles County have suddenly been stricken with whooping cough, also known as pertussis, and often called “the 100-day cough” by parents of children afflicted with the disease.
The article states:
Health officials say they are monitoring three large clusters of highly contagious whooping cough among 11- to 18-year-olds. The county Department of Health issued a health alert to pediatricians and other health care providers about the uptick in whooping cough last week.
School officials say they have done all they can to control the outbreak, including sending students home, sanitizing classrooms, and implementing a new protocol that requires students who stay home sick must be tested at a hospital for whooping cough before they can return to class.
And now for the clincher: The article states, “None of the 30 students who contracted whooping cough were not vaccinated.”
In other words, of the 30 students stricken by whooping cough at one exclusive Los Angeles school, each one of them had already had their whooping cough vaccinations. Yet they all came down with whooping cough upon exposure to it.
Wow. But should we be surprised? According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, an astonishing 81% of whooping cough cases occurred in people who were already vaccinated for the disease.
Indeed, as I previously explained in my article titled Colloidal Silver and Whooping Cough (Pertussis), since 1990 there has been an 838% increase in cases of whooping cough among children who had already been vaccinated against it.
According to experts, this is largely because today’s whooping cough vaccine was modified in 1991 to have fewer side effects. But the modifications made the vaccine significantly weaker than the previous version. So it provides far less protection.
Thankfully, many parents claim colloidal silver is quite effective against whooping cough. Here are some of the anecdotal accounts published in my previous article:
Colloidal Silver and Whooping Cough
Unfortunately, I can’t find a single documented medical study demonstrating that oral use of colloidal silver is effective against whooping cough, aka pertussis.
Yet if you do a Google search for “colloidal silver whooping cough” you’ll find 17,600 results from websites claiming colloidal silver is indeed effective for this malady (but citing no clinical studies). I did find a handful of very interesting testimonials, which I’ll quote from below, and comment on, in just a moment.
Additionally, according to a chapter in the Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, whooping cough was one of the 109 diseases that colloidal silver was used to treat in the early 1900’s, before the advent of prescription antibiotic drugs. However, the medical citation is “J. Mark Hovell in the British Medical Journal, Dec. 15, 1917.”
Looking up that particular old citation, I found that it was not from a clinical study at all, but instead, from a short article in the British Medical Journal that stated, “Colloidal silver has also been used successfully in septic conditions of the mouth (including pyorrhea alveolysis – Rigg’s disease), throat (including tonsillitis and quincies), ear (including Menier’s symptoms and closure to Valsalva’s inflation), and in generalized septicemia, leucorrhea, cystitis, whooping cough and shingles.”
So that’s quite an old medical journal citation, and there’s no way to know if the silver was used orally, intravenously, or through inhalation, etc., when used for whooping cough. No dosage information is given, either.
In a 2010 article, Russia’s premiere newspaper, Pravda, makes the following claim:
“The best natural remedy against whooping cough, colds, and flu is the age old remedy of colloidal silver. The metal silver in its colloidal state can be safely consumed and used in the body. Bacteria and viruses cannot develop resistance to silver.
Silver disables a vital enzyme and mechanism in all bacteria, viruses, and pathogens so that they cannot survive. It is good to take a few teaspoons of colloidal silver daily to maintain health. More colloidal silver should be taken if experiencing illness.”
And in a 2012 news article published in the nationwide Grit newspaper, colloidal silver is mentioned as a natural “option” for treating whooping cough.
The earthclinic.com site also recommends colloidal silver as a natural healing adjunct for whooping cough. As one reader on that site commented:
“My sixteen year old came down with whooping cough six weeks ago. Yes he was vaccinated and had a booster. After lots of research I learned that 90% of whooping cough patients had the vaccine. What really helped our son was vitamin C and colloidal silver. It minimizes symptoms.”
And here’s a testimonial from the website of TheSurvivalDoctor.com:
“My four year old had whooping cough at 17 months. It took about 6 weeks to get a diagnosis. I started using colloidal silver in a nebulizer after learning that the pertussis bacteria reproduces in the area at the back of the nose.
The treatments, which I did several times a day, as well as when he was sleeping, dramatically reduced the frequency and intensity of the coughing spells. You could probably achieve the same result with a colloidal silver nasal spray.
I also treated 5 of my other unvaccinated children who had mild coughs, though not officially diagnosed. As far as infants go, I would use a colloidal silver nasal spray once or twice daily if there is any chance of exposure.”
(As an aside, you can learn about how people use colloidal silver in a nebulizer – which atomizes the liquid and allows you to inhale it into the lungs as a mist, here. And you can see how people use colloidal silver as a nasal spray in the short video, here.)
Doing some additional research, I found this testimonial about colloidal silver and whooping cough at the Utopia Silver site:
“My youngest son is very susceptible to just about every virus and germ known to man, I think. He had whooping cough about 2 years ago. We treated the usual way with antibiotics from the doctor… two months later he was still coughing and wheezing.
Then, last spring he somehow contacted it again. We caught it very early on and had the diagnosis confirmed by a doctor, that he truly had whooping cough for a SECOND time. We gave him as much colloidal silver as we could, including a nasal spray of it, as the back of the nose is where the whooping cough virus likes to hide.
Within 36 hours there was no trace of a wheeze or whoop in him. His pediatrician couldn’t believe it as I handed him back his prescription for erythromycin 2 days later and my son had a clean retest for the virus. He just couldn’t believe that 2 days before a test had confirmed it and it was now totally gone.”
That’s an impressive testimonial. Only one thing that bothers me: The dosage information is quite inadequate. The parent states, “We gave him as much colloidal silver as we could, including a nasal spray of it, as the back of the nose is where the whooping cough virus likes to hide.”
I don’t know what “We gave him as much colloidal silver as we could” means. It could mean a couple of ounces a day over several days. Or a couple of pints. I wish people would be more precise when relating their personal accounts and experiences, so that others can benefit more directly from the information.
On an Associated Content news site, I found another colloidal silver testimonial in an article about the dramatic rise in pertussis (whooping cough) infections. The reader commented as follows:
“I stopped the choking cough by using colloidal silver solution (3 ppm- 1/2 mL, 4x per day). I am an adult. The severe coughing, choking, and vomiting spells began on a Saturday and, finding no help from my doctor, on the second evening (Sunday) I began to take the colloidal silver solution by mouth. I would just let it sit in the back of my throat until I swallowed naturally.
I also began to take Elderberry capsules 2x per day. I also put some drops of colloidal silver in each ear to assure I would not get earaches. By that night I had only one coughing spell and it was not very severe. By the next day I had maybe two coughing fits all day. By Tuesday I no longer had any coughing fits at all.
I have not had a return of symptoms although I plan to continue taking the silver and Elderberry for two weeks (until 12/26/09) just in case. I now feel completely fine. Hope this works for you.”
Once again, there’s something wrong with the above testimonial in my view, as it advocates as a dosage “1/2 mL, 4x day.” That would be a small fraction of a single teaspoon – actually less than ¼ teaspoon – taken four times a day.
Maybe that would work for a child. But it’s hardly a worthwhile or efficacious amount of silver, considering it’s an adult who wrote the testimonial and took the silver.
So I don’t know if that’s a typo, or an overly conservative colloidal silver user, or if maybe she failed to say she was using the colloidal silver in a nebulizer and breathing it into her lungs (a process in which only very small amounts of colloidal silver are needed, generally speaking).
I just find it difficult to believe that such a small dose of colloidal silver taken orally would have had any beneficial effects at all against whooping cough in an adult. But…with colloidal silver stranger things have happened. It’s often said to be a “miracle” substance by those who use it.
As I continued to research the subject, I came across another testimonial – on a completely different website — that appears to be from the same woman who wrote the one directly above. Thankfully, this version fills in a few more details:
“I just wanted you to know what I did to help my whooping cough. I am a 54 year old woman. The severe coughing spells began Saturday December 12th. I vomited several times the first night, and then by the next morning and afternoon I had severe “pins and needles” pains on my skin of the upper back and chest.
Anyway, on the Sunday (the second) evening I began to take .5 mL of colloidal silver solution by mouth (3 ppm) 4 times per day. I would just let it sit in the back of my throat until I swallowed naturally.
I also began to take Elderberry capsules 2x per day. By that night I had only one coughing spell and it was not very severe. By the next day I had maybe two coughing fits all day, and very minor “pins and needles” feeling. By Monday I no longer had any coughing fits at all.
I have not had a return of symptoms. I have continued taking the silver and Elderberry for two weeks. But I feel fine. Hope this works for you.” —B. Blockerson
So it appears the woman simply held small amounts of colloidal silver at the back of her throat as long as she could, and then swallowed, four times per day. And perhaps that – along with the elderberry capsules (which are said to be anti-viral) – was the key to being able to use such a small amount. The back of her throat might have been the site of the main colony of pertussis bacteria.
On the other hand, the woman also doesn’t specifically say she was ever officially diagnosed with whooping cough. She merely says, in the first version of her testimonial above, that she found “no help” from her doctor.
Another Interesting Account
Are there any other interesting first-hand accounts of using colloidal silver against whooping cough? Indeed there are, including this one which I recently saw posted on the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community page on Facebook:
“My daughter got whooping cough last December. It was either 10 days of antibiotics, or moms’ old fashioned way with colloidal silver. I was also to keep her home for 10 days.
She drank 8ozs of silver per day for two days. 16ozs total. By the third day? It was ALL gone, and I could have sent her back to school, but by law, I had to keep her home for another 8 days.
I now use silver on my whole family every day, including, and especially my 4 dogs. I used a regimen of silver and another supplement to eradicate Lyme disease in my ‘Forever Foster Dog’. 3 months. Gone. Same for horses. I LOVE colloidal silver!!!!” – B.L.J.
Do keep in mind that whooping cough can be extremely serious in young children. And if left untreated, or improperly treated, in serious situations it can result in permanent lung damage or worse. That’s why, particularly when very young children are involved — I always recommend a doctor’s care immediately.
According to the Centers for Disease Control web page on pertussis: “Whooping cough can even be deadly. From 2000 through 2014, there were 277 deaths from whooping cough reported in the United States. Almost all of the deaths (241 of the 277) were babies younger than 3 months of age, who are too young to be protected against whooping cough by getting the shots.”
That’s interesting. But it’s also odd, because another Centers for Disease Control web page states that children are given their first pertussis vaccines – the five dose so-called DTaP vaccines – starting at age two months.
Could it be the pertussis shots, which are given at two months, are the cause of the whooping cough infections that tend to kill babies at three months old?
Regardless, because victims of whooping cough are often young children, I’d certainly recommend you take them to see the doctor at the very first signs of the disease.
As the Centers for Disease Control website on pertussis states, “Your baby can catch whooping cough from adults, grandparents, or older brothers or sisters who don’t know they have the disease. New moms with whooping cough can give it to their newborn babies.”
Nevertheless, if doctor’s care is unavailable due to an unforeseen crisis, such as an unexpected collapse of the health care system, or some type of weather crisis such as flooding, earthquake etc., it’s good to know that colloidal silver has worked for others against whooping cough (pertussis), in both children and adults.
In a crisis situation, colloidal silver may well turn out to be our best all-natural first-line of defense against the dread pertussis pathogen!
But please understand: I’m no doctor. So I’m not prescribing here. I’m just reporting on what I’ve read or heard from others.
If anyone reading this article has used colloidal silver successfully to help the body heal a bona-fide, genuinely diagnosed case of whooping cough, please go to the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook and post a comment letting us know how much you used, how often you used it, how long you used it for, and what your results were.
Who knows? The more documentation we can find on this subject might just trigger researchers to do some real clinical research so we can have some definitive answers.
Meanwhile, I find it fascinating that so many people have had success using colloidal silver against the pertussis/whooping cough pathogen.
Important Addendum: Where to Find Colloidal Silver
If you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America. It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.
But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because colloidal silver works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, it has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.
The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.)
Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 16,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.
What’s more, manufacturers promoting the latest faddish colloidal silver product often charge far more per bottle – sometimes $35 to $50 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.
And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for these commercial colloidal silver products at health food stores because colloidal silver does indeed heal infections and prevent the spread of germs and disease faster and better than any other natural supplement on the planet!
So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:
Make Your Own High-Quality
Colloidal Silver for Pennies!
As I mentioned, typical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.
But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about 36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.
Compared to typical health food store prices, your first two one-quart batches literally pay for the entire cost of your new generator! Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!
In fact, by making your own high-quality colloidal silver with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll be as close to having FREE colloidal silver as you can get, and for the rest of your life!
You’ll never have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices again!
The new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is now the world’s #1 best-selling colloidal silver generator. Here are just a few reasons why you should own one…
- It pays for itself after your very first batch or two — your total cost to make your first one-quart batch is about 36 cents, compared to the $240 you’d pay at a health food store if you bought an equivalent amount (i.e., eight of those little 4-ounce bottles they normally sell for $30 apiece)!
- Safe, simple to operate…No special skills needed…You just set the handy timer, plug it in, walk away, and three hours later you have a perfect batch of therapeutic quality micro-particle colloidal silver…every time! Here’s a short pictorial demonstrating how astonishingly easy it is to use a new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge:
- Produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles as low as .8 nm. That’s a fraction of a single nanometer. Compare that to health food store colloidal silver which can contain silver particles as large as 200 nm to 1,000 nm (or even larger), and you’ll see why micro-particle colloidal silver is the very best there is! Smaller particles mean your body can absorb and utilize up to 99% of the colloidal silver you take, compared to maybe 30% or 40% with many health food store brands!
- Runs on standard household electricity, but uses less power than a tiny Christmas tree bulb – you won’t even see a blip on your electric bill!
- Produces uniform, crystal clear batches every single time that store for months, or even years, without losing potency!
- Cannot produce silver chloride or unsafe substances – you get pure, therapeutic-quality micro-particle colloidal silver every time!
Just read through some of the testimonials below to see for yourself how you’ll save literally thousands of dollars per year by making your own colloidal silver with your brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge!
Here’s what one customer recently wrote to tell us:
“Owning a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge has given us the luxury of being able to use high-quality colloidal silver any time we need it. And we never have to worry about the costs because it only costs a few pennies per quart to make! It is without a doubt the single-best money-saving appliance in my entire house!
Best of all, the machine is very easy to use, and easy to store. I was concerned about ease-of-use, but my fears were unfounded. After I got mine and used it, I immediately bought one and sent it to my 83 year old mom, and she uses it regularly as well.
Now that I have a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can use colloidal silver for everything — disinfecting the kitchen sinks, countertops, and the cutting board… spraying the toilet bowls, and the bathroom countertops and sinks… spraying it on my toothbrush to prevent bacterial growth…rinsing my mouth with it to prevent cavities and gum disease…you name it.
I even put it in the laundry rinse cycle when I do my linens, towels and kitchen rags, so I don’t have to wash them as frequently. It really keeps them fresh, and there’s never any mold or mildew anywhere in our house.
I also put some in the cat’s water bowl each day, and the dog’s too. We use it in the bathtub for skin problems. And of course we drink it when our tummies are queasy, or when we feel a cold or flu coming on. We also gargle with it in order to get rid of sore throats, and sniff it up our noses to get rid of sinus problems.
My husband even sprays it on his hair in the mornings, and has completely eliminated his lifelong dandruff problem. And he sprays a little bit in his eyes from time to time, and now has no more recurrent problems with sties.”
— K. Sullivan, NM
And here’s what another happy customer wrote to say about the tremendous savings she’s achieved by no longer having to purchase her colloidal silver through health food stores:
“We make a quart of colloidal silver at least once a week with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from the Silver Edge. I finally sat down and figured out how much this machine has been saving us. By making our own colloidal silver we’ve saved $11,503.20 this year alone, compared to the cost of colloidal silver at our local health food store.
The cost for colloidal silver at our local health food store is $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But with my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I can make eight times that amount (i.e., a full quart) for about 35 cents total cost.
If I were to purchase a quart of colloidal silver at the health food store, which would be eight of those tiny, four-ounce bottles, the cost would be a whopping $240 (i.e., 8 x $30 = $240) compared to the 35 cents I now spend to make a full quart!
Here’s the breakdown of our costs to make a full quart of colloidal silver with our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator: It costs us about a dollar for a gallon of steam-distilled water at Walmart. So a quart of the steam-distilled water costs about 25 cents. And I estimate we use maybe a nickel’s worth of electricity and maybe another nickel’s worth of silver from the silver rods for every one-quart batch of colloidal silver we make. So that’s 35 cents a quart, all told, for each quart of micro-particle colloidal silver we make!
And frankly, considering how long the .999 fine silver rods have lasted (over a year and a half, so far, for the most recent set), I think it’s probably even cheaper than that. But it’s the lifetime savings we’ve experienced that’s just mind-boggling to me.
For example, we’ve had our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver unit for nearly five years now. And as I mentioned we make one quart per week, and we spend about 35 cents a week on making colloidal silver.
This means we save about $239.65 a week by not having to purchase a quart’s worth of colloidal silver at our local health food store. So do the math: In just one month, the savings is $958.60…in one year, the savings is $11,503.20…and in five years we’ve saved approximately $57,516.00!
When you put pencil to paper and figure it out, it definitely takes you by surprise. You just think ‘No way. I must have multiplied that wrong.’
But it’s true. The savings is legitimately well over $11,000 a year over health food store prices for colloidal silver, if you make and use a quart of colloidal silver a week like we do! And we reap that incredible savings from the very reasonable $250 investment we made in purchasing our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.
In their advertising literature, The Silver Edge says the unit completely pays for itself after your first couple of one-quart batches. But really, that’s quite an understatement when you realize the true extent of your savings!
Of course, once you start making your own colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you don’t really think about how much you’re saving compared to health food store prices, because it just becomes a normal part of your everyday life. But the savings is nevertheless astonishing when you reflect on it.
What’s especially nice is being able to produce a significantly higher-quality colloidal silver than what’s generally available to the public through health food stores, especially at such a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost.”
— Marie Wilkey, SC
The Bottom Line…
With a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you’ll never again have to pay exorbitant health food store or internet vendor prices for high-quality colloidal silver!
Indeed, your first batch or two will indeed completely pay for the entire cost of your generator, compared to health food store prices!
