Respiratory Infections Can Be Treated Naturally

By Steven Frank

cancer and heart attacks. People who suffer from COPD, cystic fi brosis or asthma are especially prone. Treatment can be especially diffi cult when we don’t even know whether it is a virus, bacterium or fungus that we are battling. To make matters worse, the standard of care in allopathic (western) medicine has us taking pills. This systemic approach has the harmful drugs passing through the entire body and all of the organs while treating an invader that is primarily on the air-side of the lungs. This treatment is neither appropriate, effi cient nor effective in most cases. Typically we see prescriptions for a broad-spectrum antibiotic fi rst. If that doesn’t work, an anti- infl ammatory is often tried next or fi nally an anti-fungal. This progression of potent drugs is very hard on the body and the immune system. Still, some infections do not respond.


Where to treat: When you are treating an infection on

the air-side of your lungs, you should apply the active agent to the air-side. Lay it down right on top of the invading pathogens. Re- plenish it often to keep the area moist with the antimicrobial. This much more effective delivery can be accomplished by breathing the fi ne droplet mist of a nebulizer. One can achieve far greater local dosing with much less of a systemic dose. The differ- ence can be as great as 1000:1 in dosing and coverage. Put the medication where it’s needed and only where it’s needed. You need less and it works better.

What to treat with:

The next important step is to choose an antimicrobial that kills all three pathogens. In this manner, your doctor doesn’t have to guess the proper drug or try them all

ccording to the NIH, lower respira- tory infections are a greater burden of disease worldwide than HIV, malaria,

sequentially. In fact, you don’t even need to use a drug. Clinical studies have shown that administration of an enhanced aque- ous colloid of silver in this manner will clear even the most diffi cult pathogens. Perhaps the best attribute to this therapy is the complete lack of adverse side-effects. A simple treatment which doesn’t harm or weaken the body and can be easily admin- istered without side effects.

Dosing: When using an enhanced aqueous

colloid of silver of 45 ppm concentration or better, the dosing protocol is usually 3 milliliters, 3 times per day. For acute infec- tions, the 3 milliliter dose can be adminis- tered every two waking hours. One must use a nebulizer so that the liquid comes off in micro-droplets. A vaporizer will not work as it will produce steam from the wa- ter and in the case of a silver colloid, leave the active ingredients behind. The nebu- lized mist is inhaled deep into the lungs where it will coat the invading pathogens.

Duration: Most acute respiratory infections will

clear in a day or two with this method. Chronic infections however, often pres- ent with signifi cant tissue necrosis. This presents a bit more of a challenge as the pathogens can hide in the damaged tissue only to reappear when the treatment has ceased. For this reason, it is best to con- tinue the treatment for a period of time after the symptoms have cleared. For acute conditions, a day will do. For chronic con- ditions, it is dependent on the condition of the patient. A clear sputum test is a good indication that the condition has been driven into remission.
