There are a couple of key concepts that are routinely applied throughout this book. We would like to introduce them to you here.
The first key concept, protocol, is in regards to treating infection. It is imperative that you apply the correct anti-microbial, in the right manner to the right place and with the correct frequency, in order to get the best results.
As an example, many times I have heard people say, “Well I tried silver colloid when I had a cold and it didn’t work.”
Upon further discussion, it became evident that they had used a mild-silver protein and taken a teaspoon daily. First of all, the colloids that are 250 and 500 parts per million in concentration (ppm) are made in such a way that they are far less effective than the pure silver colloids that are 30 ppm.
In this case, they were using the wrong anti-microbial. Secondly, the user took it orally. The cold was in their nose and they put the anti-microbial in their mouth. It hadn’t been used in the correct manner. It should have been sprayed into their nose (not spooned into their mouth) because that is where the infection was not in their mouth.
Also, it was not used with the proper frequency; they used it only once per day. Because the doubling time of most viruses and bacteria is about 20 minutes, if they used a good colloid and sprayed it in their nose, they might have killed 90% of the infectious microbes.
Unfortunately, the remaining 10% will grow back to the starting population in about an hour. The point here is that the frequency of application was not correct and therefore the treatment had been compromised.
What we are trying to say is that the lack of results should not be interpreted as a demonstration that silver colloids cannot be used to stop a cold. That would be an erroneous conclusion.
It is simply that if the wrong anti-microbial is used in an incorrect manner or with improper frequency, the proper results will not be achieved. These problems were entirely protocol-related. If you have a cold, spraying a 30 ppm pure silver colloid intra-nasally every 5 to 10 minutes will end the infection in 12 hours.
Remember to use:
The second key concept has to do with treating a condition. There are a multitude of books on the market that will help you understand what each and every herb will do. There are hundreds of herbs and they all do numerous and different things. So, it is important that you understand which herb should be used and how to use it. This is essentially the art of herbology.
Unfortunately, we too often begin to sample various herbs without knowing exactly what they are, what their benefit can be, and the best manner in which to use them. It is important that the whole condition is properly understood and addressed. The tools that I seek to empower you with, if understood and administered properly, can become part of very effective solutions to your problems.
In most cases, addressing the whole problem by a balanced solution means we need to:
1) Treat the symptoms. Most people don’t even attempt to cure something that isn’t causing them symptoms. We must treat the symptoms (swelling, itching, pain), but we cannot stop there.
The next thing that a balanced solution must do is:
2) Fix the problem. We must address what was causing the symptoms and correct it, so that the symptoms cease.
The third objective of a balanced solution is to:
3) Help the body to heal. Most often, a malady or condition will cause some damage to the body that needs to be repaired.
A balanced solution will serve to control constituents that facilitate a complete and healthy repair of the damaged tissues. It is the combination of these three objects that constitutes a healthcare tool and not just an herbal supplement. Creating these tools requires a knowledge of herbology, physiology, and some problem-solving skills.
All of the products that will be discussed in this book are intended to embody this three-part concept so that you, the user, don’t have to have all of those qualifications in order to benefit from the tool. The user simply needs to understand what condition that they want to treat. This balanced approach to solving the whole problem is referred to as the, “Three-Pronged-approach.”
The Three Pronged Approach will:
It is with those two concepts in mind that the natural health tools described in this book are designed. Some of the protocols have been optimized based on laboratory results and some based on clinical research and experience. All of them have been used and tested for years. The herbal combinations in the natural health tools described herein have evolved through years of testing and experience.
They don’t necessarily represent the only means of accomplishing the balanced treatment. The combinations that we will introduce to you in this book are designed with readily available western herbs. There are likely comparable combinations based on oriental and ayurvedic healing principles as well.
