A sore throat is generally caused by bacteria, but may also be a result of a virus. To kill the bacteria that cause pus, swollen tonsils, and red spots in the back of your throat, rinse your mouth with one ounce of structured silver for six minutes. Allow a small amount of the solution to trickle down the back of your throat and swallow every 30 seconds. Swallow the remainder when you’re done. Pump structured silver into your nasal cavity as needed for sore throat, congestion, or postnasal drip. Sinuses and throat need to be treated simultaneously so one does not infect the other.
