I was just doing some research around CZ and found some interesting information regarding Colloidal Silver and Candida... mainly in the dosage. Trapper took high doses of colloidal silver, and had cured his candida over the course of 3 months.
From what I have read it is recommended not to go over 20 ppm, and to dose yourself slowly at first... then gradualy build up as herx and detox might be to much.
As you have read... alot of people get bad reactions from Colloidal Silver. I believe this is because thier organs are functioning below the level necessary to deal with the large amount of die off... or experience a huge amount of die off that brings on reactions. As it is said... things get worse before they get better.
It is my experience that prior/during any successful parasite/candida therapy... a person needs to go on a diet that not only starves the parasites/candida in the body, but is also less stressful/taxing on the organs and allows for healing. This would most definitly involve food combining... and eating quality foods. It also explains why the raw food diet worked so well for me, it combines the best of both worlds.
I have already ordered a silver puppy to generate colloidal silver, because it is highly recommended... and it produces ionic colloidal silver. I also plan on taking 20 ppm, but in high doses... roughly 4 oz w/h202, 4 - 5 times daily... mainly because right now I am experiencing parasite die off and a reduction in my symptoms. It is also recommended not to take Iodine while taking CS because of the potential for iodized silver, which I wont... but I will take norwegian kelp... I also am not going to be taking an MMS because of the potential for silver chloride.
I dont believe this is the only therapy that works... but I do believe it has the potential to be a critical component of a successful candida protocol.
This is exactly what I've been trying to tell the current posters on this forum for over the last month...
However before you can "cure" candida (candida never leaves your body, ever, as it resides naturally within your intestine and thats where you are aiming to make sure it goes back to, and stays there under control by beneficial flora, as it was before you became poorly) you have to resolve your leaky gut (if you have one) before using Colloidal Silver .
If you dont resolve your leaky gut before using colloidal silver, all that will occur is a constant fight for aslong as you take the colloidal silver as the candida will keep coming up from the intestine into your blood supply, however consuming colloidal silver will alleviate the symptoms during the fight. The risks of using colloidal silver (developing argyria is the only risk) are minimal if clean/safe colloidal silver is produced (use distilled water and dont add salts) however if you commence consumption before resolving your leaky gut you will inevitably end up using it a long time.
The best way to deal with this situation is to follow my protocol as it is simplicity itself and only involves taking colloidal silver for a few weeks.
1: Resolve leaky gut. (Healthy diet, colon flushes, slippery elm, marshmallow root, chlorella and most importantly kefir grains (not the milk, just the grains unless you can tolerate the cultured milk.)
2: High dose colloidal silver for a few weeks... you have to assess your own progress as the events unfold, and consume loads of anti-oxidants during this period.
3: Stop colloidal silver when tongue is going/gone pink and symptoms are alleviated (make sure you continue to consume colloidal silver for atleast a week after tongue goes pink) then continue by consuming loads of KEFIR GRAINS for 2 days then add a little cultured milk on top of the grain consumption.
You should stay on a low GI diet for the duration of the protocol, and it is also important that you view your personal health from a holistic perspective, so to say, focus on every aspect of your body... liver flushes, acid/alkali balance, positive mind etc.
For what its worth I bought a colloidal silver generator manufactured by SOTA Instruments as it also doubles up as a silver pulsar. People here seem to report the silver puppy producing safe colloidal silver so thats great, however I can only comment on the unit I bought which has been well worth the minor investment for me.
Since I regained my health I can use colloidal silver for other minor problems and it hasn't affected my intestinal health or beneficial bacteria because I'm constantly topping up with kefir grains and kefir culture. Once you get to the consuming loads of kefir grains stage (after the high dose Colloidal silver stage) and/if you develop candida symptoms again it is ok to take smaller doses of colloidal silver just to kick down the candida albicans whilst continuing to consume loads of kefir grains. I suggest if you have to take colloidal silver to kick down any re-occurance that you should take the colloidal silver during the morning, and leave it atleast 4 hours before consuming the kefir grains.
One last point, I used colloidal silver before stage 1 in my protocol as I couldn't bear the symptoms any longer and needed time to mentally regroup whilst I regained my intestinal health. What is important is that you begin to taper off the colloidal silver dosage as your intestinal health returns prepairing for stage 1 of my successful protocol, assuming you decide to use colloidal silver before stage 1.
I find the part about kefir grains interesting... by eating that which eats grain, it could be very beneficial. I also find the part about the pink tongue interesting aswell, I like it because it is a bodily indicator.
I do have some concerns though... first I dont like the possibility of the candida becoming resistant to the Colloidal Silver , I have read about this.. I suppose the cycling the CS would be a good idea... unless a person is making progress. If a person isnt making progress i would think they should go off the CS so that the candida doesnt become CS resistant... or possibly raise the dose? I havent played with it to much so I cannot say for sure. But I do know that the people who recovered never stopped taking it... they took it continueously... some for years.
Candida cannot become resistant to Colloidal Silver because it is the polarised electrical charge between the two entities that creates the foundation to kill off the candida albicans. Colloidal silver will disable the chemical lung of candida albicans from now until the begining of time.
Hi. New here. New to experimenting with MesoColloidalSilver to treat candida. I'm not seeing any talk about the importance of taking probiotics. Silver kills the good bacteria as well as the bad. Good intestinal bacteria is essential to the gut for health. I was advised by the retailer to take silver and probiotics at least 4 hours apart.
Also, when taking high doses of silver, can you take it all at once?
I'm taking 1T a day at around 2 p.m. which is in-between the two doses of probiotics. I take a high quality brand.
Kefir can cause Gawd awful die off. It is a good probiotic if it doesn't make you feel terrible. One way or another one needs to get daily good probiotics and prebiotics at a time some hours after teh Colloidal Silver . Otherwise your good bacteria could be adversely affected too.
