–Colloidal Silver. First thing in the morning, before breakfast. An empty tummy means better absorption. I use it as general support for my immune system. Since I started taking it daily, I’ve barely been sick as much as once a year. And with a swish in my mouth before I swallow, I also use it to help fight pathogens in my mouth that could cause problems like bad breath or cavities. I use it again after I shower—just a quick spritz on my skin.
Every now and then I feel myself getting sick, or suspect I’m getting a cavity, and I up how many times per day I take it (maybe a cap full at a time). If I eat something questionable, I take some after. And if I do get sick, I do a sinus rinse, or I sit with the nebulizer a few times a day.
-Coconut Oil. This is my best discovery this year. In Colorado, the dry weather sucks moisture from our skin, no matter how much water you drink. Add to that frequent hand washing (when cooking, after changing diapers….and it’s at least a couple of times an hour!) and my hands will quickly crack and bleed. Coconut oil restores oil to my skin in a way that feels very natural—not greasy (well, for maybe a minute before it sinks in), and it works very quickly at reversing damage. Plus, it’s cheap.
It’s also got a myriad of other uses…paired with a spritz of colloidal silver, it’s a great diaper rash cream. And of course, it’s edible. Last year anecdotal evidence started cropping up that the ketones in coconut oil can help reverse or slow Alzheimer’s Disease by giving brain cells energy that the disease otherwise blocks.
-Probiotics. For me it’s yogurt and an occasional supplement (when I feel food poisoning coming). Probiotics help cultivate healthy bacterial colonies all over you body, and are associated with a reduced risk of harmful pathogens like H. Pylori, staph,and fungal infections.
Yogurt is great because it’s delicious by itself, frozen, or in a smoothie with fruit.
