Natural Path Silver Wings Colloidal Silver for Immune Support

Going Green, Lifestyle

You heard right, I said pharmaceutical grade Colloidal Silver to help support your immune system. Colloidal silver is a dietary supplement in the form of an amber colored liquid which contains various mixtures of ultra pure water and ultra fine silver particles. There is a man who took daily supplements of colloidal silver and turned blue, but the label itself says not to exceed 2 tsp per day after a two week period. So it looks like that guy just didn’t read the label, silver is safe to take but I’d recommend it at times when you feel a cold really coming on and not as a daily supplement like Gingko Biloba or Echinacea.

When I reached out the Natural Path Silver Wings I didn’t know they’d send me so many amazing products. They have made it easy for anyone to have colloidal silver in their bathroom cabinet between the brand’s bottles of various PPM in liquid tincture form and even a healing topical line with one type of ointment for moisture and one meant to dry skin out. I’ve been researching and boning up on how to properly use this item and the time finally approached. We went out to dinner in the teeny tiny town that we call home and our waitress very clearly had a coldy flu-ey thing. She was sniffling and coughing and had a stuffed up voice; the nice person in me let it slide but the passive aggressive person in me made notes to take tons of precautions to avoid getting sick.

Aside from making special tea blends with elderberry syrup the next couple of days I decided to break into the Natural Path Silver Wings and see what the fuss was all about. I’m going to start off by saying that I’m a seasoned veteran when it comes to yucky tinctures but colloidal silver has quite it’s own breed of yuckiness, I will preface this with the fact that I was taking 500ppm. The metallic taste hangs on just for a bit before melting away. But after having the sniffles and starting to feel scratchy in my throat it felt well worth it. My sniffles were completely gone the next day with just 1 tsp dosage, but I’m a person who eats a lot of veg and takes pretty good care of themselves. If you have a more compromised immune system I’d recommend following the bottle’s recommend 1 tsp twice a day. I’d use this product again, it’s a better alternative to getting sick and then getting high for three days on over the counter medication.

What’s In My Cup? Tea to Kick That Cold

Lifestyle, What's In My Cup?

Elderberry syrup is one of my most favorite things, I’ve loved it since I worked at Medithrive in San Francisco. We carried an amazing medicated elderberry syrup that fought colds and got rid of body aches almost completely. Since then I’ve been so interested in the other ways that elderberries can be used. This cup of tea is adapted from the Wellness Mama‘s recipe for immune boosting tea using my own favorite blend of herbs.  I personally felt a cold coming on yesterday and this blend is just what I needed to warm up my immune system and kick it into gear before Cowbae’s mom’s epic party coming up this weekend.

Simply Mix Together:

2 TB dried elderberries

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp dried ginger root

2 tsp dried echinacea

pinch of black pepper

1 tsp local honey

Combine 16 ounces of water, elderberries, turmeric and ginger root into a medium sized saucepan and simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Take the saucepan off of the heat and stir the echinacea leaves and black pepper into the pot. Let steep/cool for 10 minutes. Strain into 2 mugs and quickly stir in honey, 1/2-1 tsp depending on our preference. Draw the aromas of your cup into your senses and imagine yourself building a strong white light of energy around yourself. Use whatever healing light that you prefer, I like to imagine it sparkling and white. Drink your brew and emanate your protective, healing light and focus on the mantra: Healing is a power within me.
