Studies Suggest that Colloidal Silver is Effective Against Pathogens. Here’s What We Love About It:

  • Kills and prevents bacterial growth, including bacteria that are antibiotic-resistant
  • Treats and prevents sinus infections when used as an additive to a sinus rinse
  • Kills some strains of pathogenic yeasts, including Candida
  • Prevents viruses from entering human cells
  • Reduces inflammation in contact dermatitis
  • Disrupts bacterial biofilm (a slimy shield that allows bacteria to hide from antibiotics)
  • Fights against Vibrio cholera and a dangerous strain of E. coli, both of which could cause serious cases of diarrhea.

What exactly is Colloidal Silver?

Glad you asked, it’s actually silver put through a process in which a colloid of micro-fine silver particles is dispersed in ultra-pure water, free of any other ingredient or contaminant. The silver ions attach to bacteria cell membranes and suppress oxygen which does not allow them to replicate. This causes die off of pathogenic bacteria and helps your body flush it out.

Heal Your Body With a Healthy Diet

Read Breaking The Vicious Cycle and Find Out How You Can Feel Better. Diet Works – Heal Your Body With The Foods You Eat.

Breaking The Vicious Cycle

What If I told You There Was A Diet That Could Help Chronic Digestive Symptoms, Reduce Inflammation and Heal Your Gut?

Breaking the Vicious Cycle was written by Elaine Gottschall, biochemist and cell biologist to provide an alternative way to treat digestive disorders using dietary changes.

What’s the SCD Diet?

Elaine Gottschall’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is based on the principle that specifically selected carbohydrates need minimal digestive processing. These select carbs are well absorbed and do not encourage microbial overgrowth in the GI tract.

Elaine’s book talks about using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help reduce inflammation and heal the gut.

What Are the Digestive Conditions Healed by the Right Diet?

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

This book gives  practical recipes that address the problems of intestinal conditions such as:

Celiac Disease
Crohn’s Disease
Diverticulitis
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Chronic Diarrhea
Indigestion

How Does The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Work to Heal?

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is outlined in her book with easy to follow recipes. It’s a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free meal plan.

The SCD works by severely limiting the availability of carbohydrates to intestinal microbes. This is important because of all dietary components, carbohydrates have the greatest influence on intestinal microbes (yeast and bacteria), which are believed to be involved in intestinal disorders. Most intestinal microbes require carbohydrates for energy.

Next time you need antibiotics try anti-fungals instead

anti-fungals instead of antibiotics

Try Anti-fungals Instead of Antibiotics

Unfortunately, antibiotics prescribed today have serious side effects that can take a long time for you to recover from. They wreak havoc on your gut when the good bacteria is wiped out along with the bad bacteria. The good news is that there are many natural anti-fungals that can help you fight bad bacteria and pathogens.

A few of the anti-fungals that we love are Oregano Oil, Berberis and Citracidal. It is well known that before the discovery of antibiotics, herbs were used to disinfect wounds and treat bacteria infections. Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, practiced for 1000’s of years, relies heavily on the chemical compounds found in plants.

We love using anti-fungals along with probiotics to treat digestion symptoms which are caused by bad bacteria, overgrowth of yeast or even parasites. Here’s how these anti-fungals can help you without compromising your health down the road.

Oregano oil

Oregano oil protects you against both bacterial infections as well as viral infections. The antibacterial effects of oregano don’t eliminate all the good gut bacteria the way antibiotics do. Here’s how you can use this “natural antibiotic.”

  • Prevents Viral Infections
  • Eliminates intestinal worms when taken internally
  • Keeps away lice, bed bugs, mosquitoes, and fleas when applied externally
  • Eliminates candida yeast
  • Eliminates UTI’s
  • Treats toe nail fungus
  • Treats sinus infections and allergies

*Oregano essential oil can cause irritation of the skin and mucus membrane if taken in high concentration or dosages. Always dilute oregano oil if taken internally with juice or water. When applied to the skin mix with coconut oil or another carrier oil.

Citricidal Grapefruit Seed Extract

This extract is derived from the bitter seeds and cell membranes of a grapefruit. It’s been discovered that the extract is a powerful anti-fungal and has anti microbial properties as well against pathogens like E Coli and Salmonella. Read more of what this powerful little seed can do:

  • Fights pathogenic organisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses
  • Fights Candida
  • Kills Antibiotic-Resistant UTIs

Berberine

  • Prevents candida species from producing an enzyme called lipase which they use to help colonize in the gut
  • Treats bacterial diarrhea
  • Counteract effects of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and worms
  • Eradicates Chlamydia
  • Helps keep stools regular
  • Reduces bad LDL cholesterol
  • Helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels
  • Treats eye infections

    Consider using anti-fungals if you are experiencing digestion symptoms that are not going away with probiotics. Even better, take a stool test and find out what’s going on in your gut. You might need anti-fungal therapy that will work together with your probiotics to restore the normal balance to your gut.
