Her cough is deep & mucous-producing. She is in a nursing home and I would want to give her colloidal silver using the nebulizer they have at her bedside.

Hello GardenArtist.... thank you for the response... I make my own colloidal silver at home, so I know it's strength and I'm still learning about it myself. I was so impressed by what I read and my husband healed his Athlete's Foot infection just by our spraying on the CS water 2-3 times per day. I used it and got rid of a cold sore before it even fully broke out. I drink one ounce in the morning on an empty stomach and one ounce at night as well. That's all I've used it for so far. I'm overall very healthy except for regular bouts of indigestion. I can't say that it has eliminated that problem, but that can depend entirely on what and when I eat before bed. If you're interested in more success stories from Colloidal Silver (CS) users, I just fear using it with whatever other antibiotic they are giving her. They have her inhaling meds from her nebulizer 2X a day. I want to put CS water in there and let her breathe that directly into her lungs, but am afraid of creating possible complications and being legally implicated if anything should go wrong. Of course....

Jocelyne, I did some quick research on colloidal silver as I hadn't read anything about it in my herbal magazines. Generally, it apparently works against a broad spectrum of pathogens. I think then the question would be what pathogens are causing your mother's cough and lung infection, and whether or not they are included in those that the silver attacks.

Although initially skeptical, I was quite surprised at its range of healing. If I ever get enough money to see a holistic or naturopathic doctor, I'm going to get more information on it.

I think the next question/issue would be finding a source that's reliable. I wouldn't want anything that was processed in an emerging market or third world country.

I assume you've used it? For what medical conditions have you used it, and how did it work?

And thanks for raising this issue. It's definitely something to research.

Thank you, friends... GardenArtist, mom's in a nursing home and that means the Doctor has seen her. She was on some kind of medicine taken through the nebulizer. The nebulizer just sits there by her bed and it is very tempting to add a little solution and have her breathe it in HOWEVER I hear the concerns and am also worried that if it should cause complications, I would be liable. Not sure if anyone has ever heard to colloidal silver water, but that was my intention. Very natural, but probably still something risky to do. Thanks for the input...

Once you have conferred with the doctor or nurse to about policy I suggest soaking a few cloves of garlic in water and let her drink it. I developed a nasty lung condition at WTC 2001 secondary to volunteering one day. Eventually a couple of years ago I almost died of pneumonia. It just snuck up on me. I was so accustomed to coughing and all. Anyways after my near death I have continuously tried not to ever ever ever get to that place again and one thing that really helps when I have congestion is the garlic. I slice a few cloves and soak in water or nuke and let them cool down. Garlic is strong on stomach so if you have ulcer or stomach issues I wouldnt do on empty stomach. Its also a blood thinner so I would check with md before giving. It works very well for me. I use the cloves all the time for cooking. Ive bought the capsules also.

Yes, it would be a violation per the state health department.

Is it illegal? Probably. It is certainly against the NH rules.

Discuss your concerns and intentions with the director of nursing or the medical administrator or whoever the head honcho is who may want to run it by the doctor.
If you get permission it is not illegal.

Jocelyne, is she getting anti-biotics for her infection? Has she seen a doctor?

If she's getting the traditional albuterol and ipratropium in the nebulizer, I'd be very concerned about adding anything else, especially without checking with one of the RNs on staff as Eyerish suggests.

I'm all for safe holistic treatments, but caution is a byword, especially something that would be inhaled directly into her pulmonary system.

What I've used in this kind of situation is honey lemon tea; inhaling the vapors and drinking the tea helps in 2 ways. The lemon helps to break up mucus and the honey soothes the raw throat. I had to use this method once when I developed a really bad sore throat and had no health insurance. I've also used fresh sage in lieu of honey and lemon.

If you want to try this, after conferring with a nurse, you could also just buy her some honey lemon cough drops and drop them in a cup of hot water to melt.

Check with the nurse before you give your mom anything.
