The bones in your forehead, cheekbones, and the area between your eyes are all hollow chambers called SINUSES. They are linked by little waterways. They produce mucus, which maintains moisture inside your nose. This in turn aids in defending against pollution, dust, and allergies. Air is present in healthy sinuses. But when they clog up and are filled with fluid, bacteria can develop and spread infection.
Also known as SINUSITIS is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. When sinuses become clogged and filled with fluid even though they are usually filled with sir, bacteria might develop and lead to an infection which is called Bacterial Sinusitis. This condition is also called “Rhinosinusitis” with “rhino” meaning “nose”. If the sinus tissue is inflamed, the nasal tissue is usually always swollen.
Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include:
- Common cold (the widespread flu).
- Allergic rhinitis – swelling of the nose’s link g brought on by allergens.
- Nasal polyps – tiny growths in the nose’s lining
- A deviated septum – causes a displacement in the nasal cavity.
There are different types of Sinusitis. The following terms are used by doctors when diagnosing a patient with a sinus infection.
- Acute sinusitis usually starts with a runny, stuffy nose and facial pain. It could begin abruptly and last for two or four weeks.
- Severe sinusitis usually lasts for four to twelve weeks.
- Sub-acute (chronic) sinusitis usually lasts for at least a year as symptoms persist.
- Recurrent Sinusitis happens many times a year.
Common signs and symptoms of Sinusitis are Post Nasal drip(mucus drips down the throat), stuffy nose or thick yellow or green discharge from the nose(nasal discharge), facial pressure, headache and or pain in your teeth or ears, bad breath(Halitosis), cough, tiredness, and fever.
A sinus infection can happen to anyone. However, there are an estimated 31 million people in the United States with sinusitis. People with allergies, nasal polyps, asthma, and abnormal nasal structures are more likely to get a sinus infection. Smoking can also increase how often you get a nasal infection.
How To Choose Colloidal Silver For sinus infection
Colloidal silver is a solution containing tiny particles of silver suspended in pure water. As a liquid solution, colloidal silver can be used as a broad-spectrum antibacterial agent. Therefore, colloidal silver can treat not only sinus infections but eye, and ear infections, various skin ailments, colds and flu, respiratory tract infections, burns, cuts, and scrapes.
With its antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial qualities, Naturistics colloidal silver is a secure and reliable complementary medical treatment for sinus infections are among the most frequent low-risk diseases, with about 32 million cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention each year. Even if the illness has a modest risk for adverse health consequences, therapy is nonetheless recommended and sometimes required.
Colloidal silver is a natural mineral. It is an effective home remedy for a wide range of conditions, particularly sinus infections. As soon as signs or symptoms of sinus infection begin to reflect, the affected person should sniff a teaspoon of colloidal silver solution into the sinus cavity, use a neti pot, take a spoonful or inhale the mist from a nebulizer. Usually, a neti pot is used in conjunction with colloidal silver. The liquid form of the silver is available and can be poured into a solution of warm water. Once the mixture is ready, pour it into the neti pot and use the nozzle to put it into the nasal passages. Then the sinus drains.
A nasal spray with colloidal silver can also aid in the treatment of sinus problems. Within a few minutes of contact, it can eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It’s also easy to use – Simply spritz into each nostril directly while taking a deep breath in. The colloidal silver will make touch with the infected tissue thanks to this “aggressive” spraying. Use the spray frequently until you notice a reduction in your symptoms.
With its excellent antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, you can see that colloidal silver nasal spray is safe and effective for treating sinus infections.
Possible Adverse Effect
Colloidal silver is regarded as a safe treatment when used sparingly. The product does, however, carry the danger of body silver build-up. The medication shouldn’t be used by nursing mothers or pregnant women. Natural antibacterial silver removes infection without drying out the sinuses to provide the most effective level of relief.
Colloidal Silver Drops/Dosage For Sinus infection
Colloidal silver can kill germs in a relatively short period of time. Silver ions appear to hold onto oxygen molecules and attach directly to cell membranes. This dual action interferes with the oxidation process of germs (cellular respiration), which, in turn, kills them and stop their reproduction.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2 million people in the US suffer illness every year because of antibiotic-resistant infections. 23,000 die from these infections, according to the CDC. This powerful ability to kill all germs holds great promise for modern medicine. As a powerful antibacterial agent, patients are advised to use an internal silver product in conjunction with a high dose of probiotics (living bacteria; on an empty stomach). Probiotics shouldn’t be consumed within three hours of silver products.
We have seen individuals with acute or chronic Sinusitis, in particular, benefit tremendously from utilizing colloidal silver as a nasal spray (20 ppm – parts per million; four sprays into both nostrils up to five times a day). The spray can also be applied straight to the throat or gargled with warm water. Additionally, you can use a “neti pot” with a few drops of silver as a nasal douche or wash (adding salt to a neti pot may reduce the power of silver). Colloidal silver offers tremendous promise for recovery in the future and will also be beneficial in the 20% or more cases of sinus infections caused by bacteria as viruses and/or mold are the most common causes of sinus infections.
Some patients add 5 to 10 drops of liquid silver (250 ppm) to their nebulizer and use it three times a day for 10 – 15 minutes. Others add colloidal silver and essential oils to 3inches of boiling water and inhale the medicinal vapor deeply into their lungs.
Finally, colloidal silver has the ability to fight against bronchitis and pneumonia when taken internally since it is a natural germ killer, particularly if drugs have failed to treat the infection if the germ is viral. All that may be required is a dose of 1 teaspoon of colloidal silver (250 or 500 ppm) administered twice daily for 5 to 7 days.
The Use of a Nebulizer With Colloidal Silver For Sinus Infections
A Nebulizer converts medication from a liquid to a mist so you may breathe it into your lungs. They come in home (tabletop) and portable models. Portable nebulizers run on batteries, or you can plug them into a car outlet. Some are only a bit bigger than a deck of cards, so you can carry them in a bag or briefcase.
Nebulizer has three types:
- Jet: This creates an aerosol using compressed gas (tiny particles of medication in the air)
- Ultrasound (soundwaves): By means of high-frequency vibrations this produces an aerosol. When jet nebulizers the particles are larger
- Mesh: The aerosol is created by liquid passing through a very thin mesh. The tiniest particles are released by this type of nebulizer. Additionally, it is the most costly.
- Nebulized therapy is often called a breathing treatment. Nebulizers also use a variety of medications, both for curbing asthma symptoms and for getting relief away.
- Anti-inflammatory corticosteroids (such as budesonide, flunisolide, fluticasone, and triamcinolone) can help you breathe more easily.
- Bronchodilators can also be used to open airways.
A portable ultrasonic mesh nebulizer is adaptable, versatile, and effective. It can be used at home and during traveling by adults and children. It can also be used with batteries (rechargeable or not) or a connection to a USB outlet.
How To Use a Nebulizer With Colloidal Silver
- Make sure you measure the colloidal silver precisely as directed.
- Use a clean measuring tool or the nebulizer cup’s maximum fill line. Overfilling the cup may prevent the nebulizer from producing a mist.
- Get comfortable in a chair and sit up straight. Relax and settle in.
- Remove the cap from the nebulizer’s nebulizing end and attach a mask or mouthpiece. If you are using a mask, use the clear spacer to secure it to the nebulizer. Alternatively, connect the mouthpiece to the nebulizer directly.
NOTE: It is important to keep the nebulizer upright while in use to avoid spillage and ensure optimal nebulization.
- Place a mouthpiece between your teeth and seal your lips around it if you are using one. Breathe slowly and deeply through your mouth.
- If you are using a sinus mask, breathe in through your nose as much as possible. Each breath should be held for two or three seconds before exhaling to allow the colloidal silver into the airways.
An ideal first step to effective nebulizer use is proper breathing. The colloidal silver can coat the lungs and still have enough left over to reach the deepest parts of the lungs when inhaled slowly. The thin mist must get to the actual site of the infection for the treatment to have the best chance of success. You can totally fill and entirely empty the lungs by breathing from the diaphragm. Use your nebulizer several times throughout the day because you might not experience immediate relief.
