Colds? Allergies? Sore Throats? Read on~

It is FALL….yea!!!!

 It is also seasonal allergy and upper respiratory infection time…
which can make you feel like hiding!

YUCK!!!

 We have a favorite line of defense that we use for those times – one that has worked for us for years!  Take it from one who used to be in the doctor’s office twice a year (spring/fall) with a raging sinus infection… to not having been to a doctor in three years for sinus issues (or anything else for that matter)…

CONGAPLEX
Short-term “I Need It Now” Support – Provides Acute Respiratory Support

Congaplex provides glandular and nutrient support to boost the immune system by providing antioxidants. It contains Vitamin A which is required for normal functioning of the immune system, vitamin C and provides calcium support for a healthy immune response. It also contains ribonucleic acid, which your body uses to build new cells.

Congaplex is also available in a raspberry-flavored chewable tablet, perfect for children.

COLLOIDAL SILVER   For Short-term Immune Support

Colloidal silver is our ‘go-to’ instead of an antibiotic.  It is in liquid form, has a mild taste and can be taken undiluted or diluted with water or juice.  Most adults will take up to one teaspoon of 250 PPM for immune support not to exceed a duration of 7 to 10 days.  Use half that recommended amount for children ages 6-12 and one-fourth for ages 0-5.  There are many uses for this product.  A 4 oz. bottle  lasts for 6 months to a year around our house.

COCONUT OIL
Did you really think I wouldn’t add coconut oil to this list, my crazy good friends? 😉

With its anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-viral properties it is a no-brainer for colds and URI’s.  We make sure we are getting 3 – 4 tablespoons of Virgin Gold coconut oil daily and increase that amount if we feel ill.  It has been noted by many that it seems to shorten the duration of a cold if you increase your dosage to two tablespoons three times per day.  (Warning!  If you have not been using/eating coconut oil and try this you will be cleaning out your system and spending additional time in the bathroom so you must build up to 3 – 4 tablespoons per day not start it all at once.)  The bottom line here is that if you are getting enough coconut oil in your diet your general health and well-being will improve…ours surely has!  The kind we use is the best on the market in our opinion (and we have tried many) and will last quite a while.  I do not cook with the Virgin Gold oil-I use it for illnesses, ailments, abrasions, etc.

And there you have it…our secrets for staying healthy and functional during the allergy/cold season.  Life is too short to spend it suffering from ailments when you can be living a healthy life naturallyso email me for more information on where you can get these ‘CRAZY GOOD’ products!!!  As always…here is to the best of health for you and yours!!!

Colloidal Silver…Another Family Staple

Colloidal Silver…Another Family Staple

If you haven’t heard of Colloidal Silver before it is time you learned about this product.  This is what our family uses in lieu of an antibiotic.  The information below was gathered based on my research and our successes though there are many more claims out there regarding the usefulness of this product.

Ear Health – Several drops (warmed if preferred), 3 times daily up to 10 days

Gastrointestinal & Intestinal Health – One dropper 3 x’s per day preferably on an empty stomach.  Follow with a probiotic at bedtime.

Mouth & Gum Health – 1 – 2 droppers in water and hold in mouth for a couple of minutes, 3 – 4 times per day.  For mouth ulcers, I have been known to put a dropper full directly on the sore.  It certainly shortens the duration.

Toothaches and bacterial irritations diminish or are relieved until one can get to the dentist.

Can impede tooth decay and bad breath.

Respiratory Health – 1-2 droppers 3 times per day for colds, flu, pneumonia, staph, strep…viruses in general.  Using with Congaplex (another family staple) has given us amazing results with flu-like symptoms or sore throats (mix silver with a little water and gargle or hold in throat).

Topical Uses:

Burns –  heals faster, very little (if any) scarring

Cuts, wounds, abrasions, rashes, sunburn, insect bites, razor nicks, acne

Pets

We have used this with our Goldens as well…cuts, sores, ears, etc. I dilute it with distilled water to either 10 or 30 PPM (see chart below).  I put a dropper full directly on the site once or twice a day.  When their systems seem to be compromised, I put a dropper full on their food two times per day – not to exceed 7 – 10 days.

You can order this product from Crazy Good Creations (see ‘Products’ at the top of the webpage)!  We ship our products anywhere in the US using Priority Mail for only $6.00 (up to 10 lbs).

Usage

Colloidal silver has a mild taste and can be taken undiluted or diluted with water or juice.  Most adults will take up to one teaspoon of 250 PPM for immune support not to exceed duration of 7 to 10 days.

Use half the recommended amount for children (6-12) and one-fourth for ages (0-5) not to exceed duration of 7 to 10 days.

The following information is for individuals who prefer to break down the colloidal silver to a lower ppm for daily use. Always use purified reverse osmosis or distilled water. Colloidal silver breakdown by ratio of 1 part silver and pure water ratio according to desired parts per million.

This is a breakdown of 250 PPM for daily use:

1:24 ratio = 10 ppm 
  (1 part 250 PPM Colloidal Silver to 24 parts distilled water = 10 PPM Colloidal Silver)

1:6 ratio = 40 ppm

1:5 ratio = 50 ppm

1:3 ratio = 80 ppm

1:2 ratio = 125 ppm

 Of course, I am no doctor and do not pretend to be.  I have researched via the internet and tried many holistic/natural remedies and coconut oil has worked for me and mine.  I recommend that everyone do their own research for their particular situation to ensure there will be no adverse interactions with their conditions or with any chemicals (medications from physicians) they may be taking.
