Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Still have the thrush so after today, it’s goodbye to the silver. The stuffiness in my nose has been quite sore the past couple of days and I think it’s linked to the added thrush I’ve had recently. I had an idea.

Is it possible to use colloidal silver as a nasal spray? Yup.

Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray, 10 PPM

ADULTS: Take 1 – 4 sprays per day for no more than 10 days at a time. This product is not intended for long term use.

Sinusitis, December 06, 2006
Reviewer: Michael Cummins Raleigh (United States)
In a matter of three days, my chronic sinusitis was totally under control by using colloical silver nasal spray at the recommended usage. Wonderful! Thanks. M. Cummins

So around lunch time, I take one spray into each nostril.

Today I wanted to try going back to the garlic. I don’t really have the time to take it when I’m home on the weekends. So it’s back to work, and back to taking garlic. I wanted to try a higher dosage and I manage to eat three cloves of garlic before noon.

I checked in the mirror and I have thrush. It’s been better than this so how did it get worse? I had a cucumber for breakfast, plain yogurt and garlic so how did I get thrush?

I mentioned my morning experiment with my wife and she checked with her friend who also has candida. He said that taking garlic will kill the good bacteria as well as the bad and was the reason I have thrush. I can’t imagine garlic being that bad so I decide to do some research:

Supporting probiotics with diet

It’s important to support probiotic use and your existing friendly flora through optimal nutrition, especially by minimizing refined sugar and processed foods in your diet. For more information refer to our nutritional and lifestyle guidelines.

Good bacteria feast on fiber. The bad guys love refined sugar and animal fat. Given a ready supply of vegetables, legumes and whole grains, good bacteria live long and prosper. Polyphenols, found in foods like garlic, green tea and ginseng, are also helpful in fostering friendly flora.

Fermented foods such as miso, tempeh, soy sauce and yogurt are renowned for their health-boosting qualities. They introduce active probiotic cultures that help wedge out unfriendly bacteria by competing directly with two main food poisoners: the toxic strains of E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Many longevity experts have extolled the health benefits of eating fermented foods — now you know why!

A few nutrients called prebiotics have been isolated that set the stage for probiotic survival. These include fructooligosaccharides (FOS), and inulin, which are natural sugars found in bananas, chicory root, onions, leeks, fruit, soybeans, sweet potatoes, asparagus and some whole grains. Prebiotics help probiotics survive passage through the acidity of the stomach and foster their growth in the intestines and colon.

A night of trying to find any reference to the fact that garlic is bad for your intestinal flora and I’ve found nothing. The above article states that garlic is good for your flora so I don’t know what to think. I ate three cloves of garlic and I ate them with plain yogurt. Then I come across another reference:

Some manufacturers have enteric-coated their garlic powder so that it would bypass the stomach. Assuming the best, that a high quality garlic powder is used initially (one that is not exposed to high temperatures which can deactivate alliinase), this form of garlic could potentially deliver alliin and alliinase to the intestinal tract. However, simulated intestinal fluids have been shown to inhibit 40% of the allicin production. The remaining allicin may exert anti-microbial effects on bad bacteria, however, it may also destroy friendly bacteria.

So does this explain the thrush? Possibly, but I’m also using the Colloidal Silver. Can that have an effect on the friendly bacteria? Yup…

Top grade Colloidal Silver contains 99.999% pure colloidal silver particles 0.0001 microns in diameter with a concentration of 20 parts per million that have little effect on the friendly bacteria in our digestive tract. However, be aware of products with higher concentrations as they can attack friendly bacteria just like some antibiotics. This could upset your natural balance and lead to other complications. With colloidal silver, higher concentrations are not necessarily better. As a matter of fact, the opposite is usually true.

The spray that I have is only 5 to 6 ppm but I’ll see if there is any change tomorrow without the garlic and if not, I’ll stop taking it altogether.

Entry for February 07, 2007

I’m meeting with the nutritionist tomorrow and I’ve decided to try one more thing before I meet with her. I was in the health food store and I came across colloidal silver in a spray format. I’d heard about it before and it wasn’t expensive so I’ll try it.

A friend of mine recommended colloidal silver last year before I was into these alternative “cures” and he had results in three days for a really bad cold. He swears by it.

Colloidal Silver

The intestines form perfect breeding grounds for candida. If the condition becomes bad enough, eventually the candida irritate an area of the intestine so much that their toxins penetrate the intestinal wall into the blood stream, where they can break down the immune system. Soon the candida infection itself passes through the intestinal wall and the white blood cells are consumed in their struggle to control the infection, further destroying the immune system.

Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.

Candida can sometimes be controlled by increasing the acidity of the body, especially the area the yeast is growing in. This can be done by eating acid foods, such as vinaigrette salad dressings, and by applying vinegar mixed with water to the problem area.

The best antibiotic commonly used to treat this condition is Nystatin. But Nystatin is only marginally effective against yeast, and remember that the problems probably started with the use of antibiotics to begin with.

Normally the body can handle minor yeast infections. However, when the yeast reaches the infectious stage wherein it is poisoning the blood and the immune system grows weak, such infections as athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, and fungus infections under the nails cannot be fought off.

A common treatment for the general infection is a diet completely free of all sugars, even fruit and starches along with taking Nystatin. However, anyone who has tried this treatment will tell you that this very strict diet is almost impossible to follow and does little more than keep the infection from proliferating.

The most effective tools against yeast infections of all kinds are acidophilus (yogurt), colloidal silver, and upper colonics. Combined, they can rid the body of yeast infections about as fast as the body can dispose of the toxins from dead cultures. However, disposing of these toxins can be a real problem, for two reasons. First of all, if the intestinal infection is killed off too sudden, it is possible for the intestines to become blocked. Obviously this can be serious and sometimes requires professional treatment to clear the bowels. Second, the body tends to dispose of toxins from the blood through the skin, which causes an itchy rash when the process is too fast. Toxins from dead spores can also strain the liver and kidneys.

Therefore, it is wise to take as much acidophilus as is convenient, but to build up the use of colloidal silver gradually, usually starting with four oz. of colloidal silver a day, of about ten parts per million, or the equivalent. This is usually increased by about one oz. per day until a breaking out appears or the conditions are relieved.

The colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.
