Message for U.S. Citizens: Conjunctivitis Precautions
September 5, 2017
In the past couple of weeks, the incidences of conjunctivitis in Panama have been growing rapidly and conjunctivitis is now considered an epidemic by the Panama Ministry of Health. There have been more than 25,000 cases reported nationally and more than 6,300 in the city of Panama alone. Conjunctivitis affects the eyes and is caused by a virus-like micro-organism called Enterovirus. Practicing good hygiene is the best way to avoid conjunctivitis and control its spread:
Here are a few pointers to protect yourself and control the spread of conjunctivitis.
You can soothe the discomfort of conjunctivitis by applying cold compresses to your affected eye or eyes. To make a compress, soak a clean cloth in cold (iced) water and wring it out before applying it gently to your closed eyelids.
Also, it is important to avoid crowded places where conjunctivitis may be spread. Finally, always consult your physician before beginning any treatment.
/-All the drugs in the long list at webmd are for treating bacterially caused conjunctivitis, but the most common cause is viral. The initial post in this thread mentions a viral cause, possibly because it was in the news about conjunctivitis currently plagueing Panama. Bacterial conjunctivitis is "yuckier" in that it has brighter redness and usually exudes pus and causes the eyelid to become stuck shut.
As I said before, there are no regular pharmaceutical treatments for viral conjunctiivitis, but colloidal silver will cure it. It will also cure bacterial conjunctivitis, so using a known one-shot treatment makes a lot of sense. At the same time, it avoids using antibiotics, which are terribly over-prescribed. Excessive use of antibiotics allowos bacteria to develop resistance to them. That is why we now have serious problems with MRSA, CRE and MDRGN which generally have very limited pharmaceutical treatment available and regularly infect people in hospitals. The mortality rates of these three classes of resistant bacteria are about 22%, 50% and 26% respectively.
Both MRSA and CRE are problems in hospitals in Panama, with CRE being found in about 20% of gram negative bacteria. It is noteworthy that colloidal silver will also kill these antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Here is a link to one peer reviewed paper I quickly found: https://www.rroij.com/open-access/the-neutralizing-effects-of-asap-...:
And here is a link to a .pdf copy of an early 20th century book from England about colloids in health and medical treeatment: https://ia802706.us.archive.org/32/items/useofcolloidsinh00searuoft...
Here's a link to another paper, but it is necessary to be a member of the site to download it: https://www.scopus.com/record/display.uri?eid=2-s2.0-34848864995&am...
Belay that. I found the entire paper on another site: http://nanotechsilversolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Ultra... This paper mentions the existence of numbers of scientific papers about colloidal siilver.
I have a digital library of information about colloidal silver, and some of the papers I have may be peer reviewed Often, however, scientific papers are too detailed and abstruse for the average person who just wants to find out what colloidal silver is, how it works and how it can be used to treat problems they have.
I have been making and using colloidal silver for over ten years and have progressed fron a very basic and somewhat crude process to a device that produces nano particles that can cross the blood-brain barrier. The ability of CS to treat viral infections sets it apart from other treatments, though using it for bacterial infections makes much more sense than using antibiotics unnecessarily and possibly having bacteria in your body develop resistance to them. For instance C, dificile is a bacterium that is resident in almost everyone's gut. So is Helicobacter pylori. Both are difficult to kill with antibiotics, though it is possible. They are generally held in check by the good bacteria in the digestive system, but if a course of antibiotics is used, especially for more than just a short time, it will kill off many of the good bacteria and allow free rein to those bad guys. Helicobacter pylori is the primary cause of stomach ulcers. Clostridium dificile can cause serious diarrhea and life-threatening inflammatory colon infections. Colloidal silver can kill both.
As with antibiotics, if you take colloidal silver it is a good idea to take pro-biotics or to eat fermented foods such as kefir, kim chee, active culture yogurt or sauerkraut to help maintain good bacteria in the digestive tract
Thanks for all the info in educating people who don't know how wonderful colloidal silver is. It is the only thing I would use for this condition (and many more). You can find Nano colloidal silver every Tuesday at the market at my table "Finca Feliz" in the octagon room. Use also for any open wound to avoid infection, soak your fresh veggies with some in some water to kill parasites, and kills "bad" bacteria internally. Nano silver is the only one that survives the stomach acid so it can benefit you internally. Also fabulous for getting rid of mold. I have different sizes and a spray bottle as well. See you at the Market.
Here is an excerpt from something else that I just read today:
For hundreds of years, silver’s incredible power to kill germs and stop disease has been known throughout the world. In fact, it’s been used since long before anyone knew what a germ was!
Look, if silver is embraced by NASA and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point – world leaders in technology and innovation, and highly experienced at keeping human beings alive and very well in extreme conditions – that’s a pretty persuasive argument!
Put another way, these benefits have been known for decades. In a 1978 Science Digest article, “Our Mightiest Germ Fighter,” one expert said,
The same article reported on research by Dr. Carl Moyer. Moyer who was the Chairman of Washington State University’s Department of Surgery. There they found a colloidal silver salve to be the most effective treatment for severe burns. And it was a treatment with no evident negative effects.
And as a totally natural remedy, colloidal silver is superior even to prescription antibiotics, like penicillin, ampicillin, etc. Those drugs kill harmful AND BENEFICIAL bacteria. Especially in your stomach and bowels. That’s why so many people experience intense stomach pain when taking these powerful drugs.
And of course antibiotics’ dangerous interactions with other medicines and other harmful side effects are well known. A recent Wall Street Journal article confirms what I have been telling my subscribers for years:
“Silver, in the form of dissolved ions, fights microorganisms by interfering with processes such as how they breathe and reproduce. Tests show that silver ions kill microorganisms ranging from harmful strains of E. coli that cause food-borne diseases to the staphylococcus bacteria responsible for serious infections.”
With food poisoning spreading through our food supply in products like cantaloupes, spinach, and even ground beef, you really need to have this option readily at hand. After all, any one of us could be just one meal away from urgently needing it.
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of colloidal silver users report no side effects at all. The Association for Colloidal Research says flat out:
“Medical journal reports and documented studies spanning 100 years indicate no known side effects from oral or I.V. administration of properly manufactured colloidal silver in animal or human testing.”
Despite a cloak of official secrecy and a near-total media blackout about the benefits of colloidal silver, many large corporations are using silver for public sanitation purposes. Including major airlines
It's for reasons like this that I make and sell colloidal silver. It's better than antibiotics, costs much less and requires no prescription. Anyone who wants more information about specific medical and non-medical uses for colloidal silver can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it, along with a price list for El Matador colloidal silver and other El Matador products.
I see many of my customers in various places, such as the Tuesday Market, Sugar and Spice, The Fish House, the flea market, etc., so I try to keep products in my car with me. If you see me anywhere around town, including tomorrow at the Tuesday Market, and want some colloidal silver, mold killer, boron supplement or Pup Fresh dog deodorant, just stop me and ask. Or send an email to email@example.com
Get off Keith's case. All of us are tired of it.
Actually, conjunctivitis generally is not that serious unless complications develop. Most cases cure themselves in a week or two. A little humor never hurts.
