Candida and Structured Silver
For some individuals, they may be all too acquainted with something called ‘Candida.’ For others, it is a new term they may have heard of but don’t really know what it means. Well, to begin, ‘Candida’ is a general term that refers to a number of related species of yeast that commonly inhabit the body’s mucosal membranes, including in the mouth, the genitourinary tract, and the digestive tract. And if this yeast is in small numbers, it doesn’t typically cause us any problems. However, if it begins to overgrow and then over-colonize such areas, we can experience a number of undesired side-effects and nagging symptoms including:
- Vaginal yeast infections
- Athletes foot
- Jock itch
- White coating on tongue
- Digestive upset including bloating, gas, pain, and more
- Sensitivity to eating sugar and carbohydrates
- ‘Brain fog’
- Fatigue and malaise
These yeasts, when over-abundant, can make us sick due to the toxic metabolites they produce
including something called acetylaldehyde, which contributes to many of the symptoms so many people experience from an over-growth of candida.
Thankfully there are ways to curb candida overgrowth besides prescription medications and of one of these agents is, you may have guessed, structured silver! The effectiveness of structured silver against candida is quite marked. In fact, in research studies, structured silver is able to kill candida albicans in ten minutes or less! So whether you’re using it topically or internally, structured silver can get to work quickly in culling the overgrowth of candida in your body.
Typically it is best to dose silver internally for candida at minimum (consider starting at two teaspoons twice daily) and then if you have a topical overgrowth such as in the genital region or on the feet, you can also apply the topical gel for extra help in that area or for women, even use structured silver liquid as a douche solution by mixing three ounces of silver liquid with three ounces of purified water and pumping into the vaginal cavity and holding for ten minutes before releasing. For many women, doing this for five days should clear the infection but for some cases, you may need to do it longer if it is a bad infection or it has been ongoing for a long time.
Furthermore, reducing your intake of processed foods (especially carbohydrates—this includes juices, sodas, cookies, cakes, chips, etc.), making sure you’re well hydrated with lots of water to flush the candida toxins out and keeping those areas dry and well ventilated as much as possible (as candida also thrives in moist conditions) is also helpful in helping to expedite the clearance of a candida overgrowth.
Other natural agents such as grapefruit seed extract, caprylic acid, and berberine have also been shown
to highly effective in helping to kill and curb candida growth, so for some individuals they may also want to combine silver with one or more of these agents for even more swift and complete clearance of candida if they’ve had an especially bad candida infection.
Candida can be a serious and nagging problem. So if you or someone you know is struggling with it, remember there are natural solutions that may readily help change that situation and structured silver is one of the very best and safest to consider!
