Fortunately, there is another recourse besides the typical oral dosing of antibiotics that the inflicted sufferer has available to them.
Application of an aerosol anti-fungal and antibacterial agent directly to the infected surface of the sinuses can kill the overgrowth and allow the body to once again regain a healthy balance or stasis. This can be accomplished with a broad-spectrum antimicrobial such as an enhanced colloid of silver.
A pure silver colloid of sufficient strength (greater than 30 parts per million) can be enhanced by the addition of a surfactant, such as polysorbate 20, to become an even more potent and lethal anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent.
Kill ratios of 106 and 107 have been demonstrated in-vitro against Staph., Strep. and P. Aeruginosa. The broad spectrum nature of this anti-microbial agent allows the fauna and flora to be attenuated (killed) evenly so as not to leave resistant organisms behind. This markedly reduces the shifting of the fauna and flora towards more difficult-to-kill pathogens. The result is that all types are killed and so there is no tendency for the patient to develop a resistance.
Moreover, this enhanced silver colloid is effective against Candida and other fungus commonly found in the sinus passages. Since the active agent is both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, there is no tendency to kill one pathogen and leave the food supply and a hospitable environment for the surviving organisms. This is a significant and clear advantage over antibiotics.
By applying an aqueous silver colloid directly to the nasal and downstream sinus passages, the active agent is not orally ingested and consequently diluted throughout the entire body.
This application is direct and the result is that it reduces overall body burden by at least one thousand times and represents a significant advantage over oral, systemic antibiotics. Since the agent is delivered directly to the infected region, it produces little or no effect in other regions of the body.
The amount of this antimicrobial agent that reaches the intestines in an active state is insignificant, thereby eliminating the concern of attenuating bacteria necessary for digestion in the intestinal tract.
As an example, a typical dose of antibiotics may consist of a couple grams of Amoxicillin per day. Distributed throughout the entire body of a 75kg person, this would yield roughly 27 to 30 micrograms of antibiotic per milliliter of tissue. This is a lethal level to both good and bad bacteria throughout your entire body.
Comparatively, it is important to consider the normal course of intra-nasal administration of an enhanced silver colloid. This would typically be two 100 micro-liter sprays (one in each nostril) every 30 minutes for 15 hours a day. This spraying regimen results in a total dose of 6 milliliters per day.
The silver content of this amount of spray is roughly 180 micrograms (0.18 milligrams). This is no more silver than what the average person ingests each day through water, air and food. However, and most significant, is that when delivered to the surface of the nasal passages-ways, it represents more than 20 micrograms per milliliter of tissue area. This is a very lethal dosage level that directly eliminates the bacteria and fungi in that area.
To finish this treatment comparison, in the case of antibiotics, your entire body must be subjected to 2,000 milligrams of toxic antibiotics each day. In the case of the intra-nasally applied enhanced silver colloid spray, your body is subjected to just 0.18 milligrams of non-toxic silver per day. The difference is roughly 10,000-to-1 in favor of the direct application of the enhanced silver colloid to the infected tissues versus the ingestion of antibiotics.
The silver product’s advantage further increases when one considers that in order to make a fair comparison, one would have to add an anti-fungal to the antibiotic regimen. The silver colloid product is highly effective as both an antibacterial and antifungal agent.
There is an excellent analogy to illustrate this point. If you have a grease fire on your stove, do you:
a) Go down into the basement and break the water inlet to the house so that the entire house floods. The water eventually reaches the level of the kitchen stove thereby quenching the flames. This is, in effect, what happens when you treat a sinus infection with antibiotics.
OR, do you:
b) Grab a fire extinguisher and directly spray the fire in the pan. This illustrates what happens when you spray an enhanced silver colloid directly into the affected area.
Obviously, the more sensible approach here is to spray the pan and treat the problem directly.
The most sensible approach to treating sinusitis is to apply the antibacterial and antifungal agent directly onto the infected tissues. This can be done with a local nasal spray of the active agent.
Additionally, it can be supported by treatment of the sinuses with a nasal rinsing system such as a neti-pot or nasal squeeze bottle to administer an enhanced aqueous colloid of silver through the entire sinus region.
