Silver vs. Sore throat

Causes a Sore Throat?
Sore throat is a symptom of many medical disorders.
Infections cause the majority of sore throats and are
contagious. Infections are caused either by viruses such
as the flu, the common cold, mononucleosis, or by
bacteria such as strep, mycoplasma, or hemophilus.
While bacteria respond to antibiotic treatment, viruses
Viruses: Most viral sore throats accompany flu or
colds along with a stuffy, runny nose, sneezing, and
generalized aches and pains. These viruses are highly
contagious and spread quickly, especially in winter. The
body builds antibodies that destroy the virus, a process
that takes about a week.
Sore throats accompany other viral infections such as
measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, and croup. Canker
sores and fever blisters in the throat also can be very
One viral infection takes much longer than a week to be
cured: infectious mononucleosis, or "mono."
This virus lodges in the lymph system, causing massive
enlargement of the tonsils, with white patches on their
surface and swollen glands in the neck, armpits, and
groin. It creates a severely sore throat and, sometimes,
serious breathing difficulties. It can affect the liver,
leading to jaundiceó yellow skin and eyes. It also
causes extreme fatigue that can last six weeks or more.
"Mono," a severe illness in teenagers but less
severe in children, can he transmitted by saliva. So it
has been nicknamed the "kissing disease," but
it can also be transmitted from mouth-to-hand to
hand-to-mouth or by sharing of towels and eating
Bacteria: Strep throat is an infection caused by
a particular strain of streptococcus bacteria. This
infection can also damage the heart valves (rheumatic
fever) and kidneys (nephritis), cause scarlet fever,
tonsillitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, and ear infections.
Because of these possible complications, a strep throat
should be treated with an antibiotic. Strep is not
always easy to detect by examination, and a throat
culture may be needed. These tests, when positive,
persuade the physician to prescribe antibiotics.
However, strep tests might not detect other bacteria
that also can cause severe sore throats that deserve
antibiotic treatment. For example, severe and chronic
cases of tonsillitis or tonsillar abscess may be culture
negative. Similarly, negative cultures are seen with
diphtheria, and infections from oral sexual contacts
will escape detection by strep culture tests.
Tonsillitis is an infection of the lumpy tissues on each
side of the back of the throat. In the first two to
three years of childhood, these tissues "catch" infections, sampling the child's
environment to help develop his immunities (antibodies).
Healthy tonsils do not remain infected. Frequent sore
throats from tonsillitis suggest the infection is not
fully eliminated between episodes. A medical study has
shown that children who suffer from frequent episodes of
tonsillitis (such as three- to four- times each year for
several years) were healthier after their tonsils were
Infections in the nose and sinuses also can cause sore
throats, because mucus from the nose drains down into
the throat and carries the infection with it.
The most dangerous throat infection is epiglottitis,
caused by bacteria that infect a portion of the larynx
(voice box) and cause swelling that closes the airway.
This infection is an emergency condition that requires
prompt medical attention. Suspect it when swallowing is
extremely painful (causing drooling), when speech is
muffled, and when breathing becomes difficult. A strep
test may miss this infection.
Allergy: The same pollens and molds that irritate
the nose when they are inhaled also may irritate the
throat. Cat and dog danders and house dust are common
causes of sore throats for people with allergies to
Irritation: During the cold winter months, dry heat
may create a recurring, mild sore throat with a parched
feeling, especially in the mornings. This often responds
to humidification of bedroom air and increased liquid
intake. Patients with a chronic stuffy nose, causing
mouth breathing, also suffer with a dry throat. They
need examination and treatment of the nose.
Pollutants and chemicals in the air can irritate the
nose and throat, but the most common air pollutant is
tobacco smoke. Other irritants include smokeless
tobacco, alcoholic beverages, and spicy foods.
A person who strains his or her voice (yelling at a
sports event, for example) gets a sore throat not only
from muscle strain but also from the rough treatment of
his or her throat membranes.
Reflux: An occasional cause of morning sore
throat is regurgitation of stomach acids up into the
back of the throat. To avoid reflux, tilt your bedframe
so that the head is elevated four- to six-inches higher
than the foot of the bed. You might find antacids
helpful. You should also avoid eating within three hours
of bedtime, and eliminate caffeine and alcohol. If these
tips fail, see your doctor.
Tumors: Tumors of the throat, tongue, and larynx
(voice box) are usually (but not always) associated with
long-time use of tobacco and alcohol. Sore throat and
difficulty swallowing, sometimes with pain radiating to
the ear, may be symptoms of such a tumor. More often the
sore throat is so mild or so chronic that it is hardly
noticed. Other important symptoms include hoarseness, a
lump in the neck, unexplained weight loss, and/or
spitting up blood in the saliva or phlegm.

My husband is a custom compounder and pharmacist and we
have been sharing the colloidal silver story with our
patients and they are having positive results. One man
had a sore throat and cough for 8 months and the
silver cleared it up in 8 days.
My family has been using CS for about 2 years now. I bought your
generator and TDS tester so have been making CS for my
family, friends and even a little to sell. Essentially I get my CS for free if I sell a little on
We have had great results with CS. A few examples:
My mother-in-law cured toe nail fungus, so did a friend
of hers, cured eye infections, cured infected cuts
and scrapes. It seems to be extremely effective
when used topically.
I have also used it to cure sore throats. I
work outside and would get a sore throat 4 to 5 times a
year which needed antibiotics to clear up. But the
antibiotics were hard on my digestive system.
Since I found CS when I get a tickle in my throat I lay
down and hold CS in the back of my throat for a couple a
minutes 2 -3 times a day. In a day or two no more
tickle, and no sore throat.
We have not had colds or flu in our house in over a
year. At the
first sign of a cold we increase our daily dose from 1/2
tsp once a day to 1/2 tsp 2-3 times a day. We may
get some minor symptoms but never a full blown cold.
I have a friend who runs a day care in her home.
She used to have problems with the kids sharing colds,
runny noses etc.. Now she give each a few drops of
CS in their mouths each day and no more runny noses.
Feel free to contact me about these "cures".
Thanks for sharing CS with us.

I gargled with
colloidal silver a couple of weeks ago when I was
getting a sore throat. I was about ready to go for a
test to see if it was strep as it felt really bad. After
the second day of gargling the problem cleared up
entirely. I have never had a sore throat at that
stage just suddenly go away before.
For several years I had two a pinkish shiny spots on my
shin that would occasionally itch and nothing helped it.
It would quit itching but never went away. My doctor
said it was an excema possibly. I rubbed the area
vigorously with colloidal silver off and on for a few
weeks and it is gone!
I have been using CS for at least 7 years, but I
have normally used it as a topical application on
wounds, sore throat or ear problems. My
little grand-daughter runs to grandmas for
"silver" everytime she falls on her skates.
I remember one time a wild cat that was running the
neighborhood severly clawed our neighbor when he tried
to pet it. His arm was clawed deep and was
bleeding real bad. Knowing that John was a
diabetic, my daughter told me to go get the silver. (Up
until that time she would always just chuckle when her
daughter wanted to come to grandma's for a fall.) We sprayed it all over his arm and gave him the bottle
to apply every hour for the night. The next morning he
went to his doctor and his doctor could not believe how
his arm had started to heal.
I want to share my story and thank you for the
information that you provide to people on the Internet.
I suffered with, I didn't know what, since last
April...sore throat, nasal drip and fatigue ...then it
got worse...felt feverish, severe sore throat,
severe sore tongue and I broke out in four cold sores in
my mouth, overnight. When I went to the Dr. he put me on
antibiotics. I ended up taking four ten-day stints with
them. He changed the type of antibiotics half way
through. They made me feel better, but did not get rid
of this virus. I went on the Internet and read
everything I could about viruses and bacterial
infections. I tried ga rlic, first raw, which is rough
(even though I love garlic) and then aged garlic pills.
That helped more than the raw garlic although the raw
gives instant relief. At my wits end, as the saying
goes, I read everything I could find on colloidal
silver. I ordered a few bottles and tried it. It has
only been less than a week, but I feel better than I
have felt in months. I am only taking 2 teaspoons a day
and it gives me tons of energy. I also put a couple
drops in my nose two - three times a day as I need it as
it seems that the post nasal drip is making the sore
throat hang on, but it is going away, less and less
frequent each day. I want the people to read this to
know that nothing is an instant cure, but the silver
takes very little time to work. My fifteen year old son
has had an acne problem and I had him apply the silver
topically to his face and it started drying up in two
days. He has also been suffering with allergies this
summer and when he takes the silver, he nose stops
running soon after.
Thank you so much for putting this information out
..........I find myself giving away more colloidal
silver than ever lately and sending everyone to your
website to check it out. Have had great results. One
lady I met at a hotel (she was the night desk clerk) had
a son who had been treated by doctors for strep and
scarlet fever. Her son continued to experience very
tender throat, and tender lymph nodes in the throat and
the throat was almost totally closed. Of course the
doctors had no explanation for why the throat hadn't
reopened and why it was sore and tender to the touch. I
told her about Colloidal silver and she bought some (I
had forgotten to take some along on my vacation) and
within a couple of days the throat was opening up again
and the swelling and tenderness was gone. Since then the
throat has totally opened up to normal and all
tenderness and soreness is completely gone. I am giving
a bottle to a friend that has mono. Will let you know
the results after he has taken some for a few days. Am
also giving a bottle to someone at my wife's work that
has shingles (related to chickenpox) - will let you know
results on this too. I take it whenever I feel something
coming on. I've used it for sore throats -
usually gone within hours after taking it. I've used it
for a bladder/kidney infection. After taking it for a
couple days for the infection I went in to the doctor to
have him check my urine. No sign of any infection. I
give it to my 5 year old to prevent ear infections.
Since taking colloidal silver she hasn't had any more
infections and she used to get them one after the other.
It's a marvelous product - wish we could get doctors to
see the light. I think they are afraid that no one would
come to them anymore - plus they don't want to lose
their kickbacks from the pharmaceutical companies.
Thanks for everything.
We have been using Colloidal Silver for about three
years. We find that if we take enough (3-4 oz) of it
several times a day at the first sign of a throat tickle
or sore throat , we most generally can totally
avoid getting sick. This weekend my son got very sick
with a fever and sore throat and cough. He took it as I
mentioned above and in two days was back to work with
all the regular energy and no sickness. We have our own
dairy cow and other animals which we like to keep
organic ie without chemicals or antibiotics. When our
cow got sick we give it colloidal silver instead of
antibiotic and saw an amazingly fast recovery in just a
day or two. That way we can still drink the milk. (You
can't drink the milk of a cow on antibiotics.) It's the
best thing since sliced bread for us who don't like
doctors and can't afford them anyway. Hooray for
On Nov. 21, 2002 I woke up at about 0230 AM with both my
tonsils sore and swollen. I got up and gargled
with silver-water. Then about 30 mins later I did
another gargle then went back to bed and slept till 0730
Am. When I got up I noticed my swollen sore throat was
no more. Folks This really is good self medication.
I just came across this, very surprised it was here.
I've had trouble with colds, headaches, sorethroat.
My daughter in FL. took me to buy some and not only took
it by mouth I rubbed on on on my throat, chest, and I
swear by it. I showed my Dr. and he wanted a copy of it.
I think its great you put it on the web, and internet.
keep going. I would like to start a little business up
north with it. I think if we had more people using
silver there would be less sickness, less money spent on
drugs. thank-you for putting this on . I am going to
sent it to all the people i know and get the word out
there.That there's always hope for the better.
