How to Reduce Swelling with Silver

How to Reduce Swelling with Silver

Are you know how to reduce swelling with silver
Inflammation, from the Latin root meaning “a setting on fire,”[1] is one of the body’s ways of responding to threats. If you’ve ever had swelling, pain, or redness in any part of your body, you’ve experienced inflammation. You might notice that the area feels hot or warm. If it’s really inflamed, it may be hard or almost impossible to move it. 

1. It even plays a role in the common cold and bronchitis. In fact, it’s inflammation that causes the symptoms of the common cold… and bronchitis is inflammation in the bronchioles. 

2. It’s also possible to have inflammation without noticing any symptoms. This is frequently the case with the chronic inflammation that leads to diseases.

3. Whatever the cause or type of inflammation, My Doctor Suggests pH-Balanced Structured Silver can help reduce it by going after its root cause.

Why is Inflammation Painful?

The release of these mediators also causes the small blood vessels to widen so that more blood makes it to the damaged tissue. The increased flow of warm, red blood is what makes the area hot and red.

A big benefit of the increased blood flow is that the blood carries immune system cells like white blood cells to the injured tissue. These cells help facilitate and speed healing.

Pain is the result the effects of histamine and bradykinin. These chemicals irritate nerves, which send pain signals to the brain.

Want to get rid of the pain? Not so fast!

The pain is there for a reason… it serves a purpose. Pain is our body’s way of forcing us to take it easy. The presence of pain makes us more careful or cautious. It is there to keep us from further injuring or hurting the affected area.

 It’s ok and perfectly normal to want the pain to leave, but when it’s associated with an injury that needs to heal, remember that it was there as a reminder of the injury. Numb the pain if you want to, but don’t continue any activity that might cause more damage.

Causes of Inflammation

Inflammatory response, or inflammation, is one of the ways the immune system protects the body. Inflammation helps fight off pathogens and heal injuries. Inflammation can be caused by:

The pain is there for a reason… it serves a purpose. Pain is our body’s way of forcing us to take it easy. The presence of pain makes us more careful or cautious. It is there to keep us from further injuring or hurting the affected area.


Pathogens or germs (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) cause inflammation as the immune system responds to their presence and sends out the forces to attack.

 Injuries such as cuts, scrapes, and burns

The body’s immune system responds to external injuries with inflammation. It’s a way to isolate or stop potential germs from entering further into the body and causing infection.

Exposure to toxins

Toxins, poisons, chemicals, and radiation… whether natural or not, can result in inflammation as the body defends itself from the threat.

Certain food

Believe it or not, in addition to obvious poisons and/or toxins causing inflammation, many of the foods we eat that are supposed to nourish our bodies, cause inflammation, too. On the big “no-no” list are fried food, soda, red meat, refined carbs, and shortening, lard, and margarine.[3]

Inflammation… the Good and the Bad

Most of the time, inflammation is there to help… it facilitates healing of an injury or other tissue damage. But sometimes it gets a bit overzealous. There are two basic types of inflammation… acute (sudden, sharp, and/or brief) and chronic (lasts a long time, usually three months or longer).[4]

Acute inflammation is the body’s response to an injury or some other external attack. It is one of the ways the immune system protects and heals the body. When everything is working properly, acute inflammation does its job then goes away once it has completed its mission. Acute inflammation is essentially good inflammation.

Chronic, long-term inflammation may be initiated by an injury or it may not be… and can go on for years.

Chronic inflammation has been linked to heart disease, stroke, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. In fact, chronic inflammatory diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide.[5] In 2014, almost 60 percent of Americans had at least one chronic inflammatory condition. Many had more than one chronic condition.

Diseases known as chronic inflammatory diseases are autoimmune disorders in which the immune system becomes the enemy, causing inflammation and attacking healthy tissue. Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis are examples of such diseases. Some people suffer from chronic inflammatory diseases for the majority of a lifetime.

Chronic inflammation is definitely bad inflammation.

Reducing Inflammation, Swelling, and Pain with Silver

Silver is a valuable tool in destroying inflammatory agents like the bacteria, viruses, and yeast that attack the body and cause a multitude of symptoms and diseases.  

Silver takes the workload off the immune system, freeing it up to rebuild while promoting the healing and rebuilding benefits of immune cells. The obstacles that interfere with normal immune function can be reduced or removed by silver as it mobilizes and activates stem cells.

The immune system is then able to focus on regenerating healthy cells, restoring immune function, and reducing inflammation caused by autoimmune attacks.

As we mentioned before, pain is caused by inflammation.

Structured silver can help reduce inflammation and swelling and the pain associated with it by going after and destroying the cause. Silver destroys inflammatory agents like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. These pathogens attack the body causing a multitude of symptoms, illnesses, and diseases and almost always causing inflammation. 

Structured silver can fight these causes. 

Here are some ways pH-balanced structured silver can be used:

Effect on Body

on injured skin

An inflammatory response is sometimes seen around an open wound, with or without an infection. Apply structured silver gel to the affected area twice daily. If there’s an infection, drink two teaspoons of silver liquid twice day to help fight it off and reduce the inflammation.

In the throat

A sore throat is a common symptom of colds and flu. Sore throats will usually be red and inflamed.

Rinsing your mouth and gargling with one ounce of structured silver for six minutes several times a day will help destroy reduce the inflammation by destroying the pathogens that are causing it. Allow a little bit of the liquid to trickle down the back of your throat and swallow every 30 seconds. When you’re done, swallow what’s left of the silver liquid.

The sinuses and throat are connected so it’s important to spray structured silver into your nose as well. This will help get to the areas that are harder to reach.

Structured silver lozenges can be used as needed to reduce inflammation and soothe a sore throat. Allow the lozenge to dissolve slowly in your mouth. As a bonus… they taste great and their all-natural ingredients will coat and soothe the sore throat. Silver lozenges are safe to use up to a maximum of 20 lozenges in a 24-hour period.

On The Ear

Earaches are a sign of inflammation in the ear canal. Use a dropper to put at least five drops of structured silver liquid in the ear while the ear is pointed up. (Most people will find it easiest to lie on their side.) Keep the ear tilted up for 12 minutes. This allows time for the silver liquid to get all the way down into the ear canal. Repeat this process in each ear every 12 hours until the inflammation is gone.

On the Eyes

Eyes can become red and sore (inflamed) due to allergies, a cold, or infection. Conjunctivitis, or “pink eye,” is an inflammation in the eyes (the suffix “-itis” means inflammation).

Use a dropper to put two or three drops of structured silver liquid directly into the eyes one to four times a day.

Combine Silver with an Anti-inflammatory Diet

Just like there are foods that cause inflammation, there are foods that help to reduce it.

Stay away from food containing:

  •         Sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. Sodas, candy, and other sweet treats have some of the highest levels. But these are hidden in many processed foods… read the label the next time you pick up a box of crackers, salad dressing, ketchup, or barbecue sauce.
  •         Trans fats, also called partially hydrogenated oils. The process of hydrogenation converts liquid oils into solid or semi-solid fats. Fried foods and margarine are the most common places to find partially hydrogenated oils. They’re also found in processed foods like baked goods and in some peanut butter.
  • Although they were banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June of 2018, anything containing trans fats that was made before the ban went into effect can still be sold. And if there’s less than a half a gram per serving, the nutritional label lists it as having zero grams… so small amounts can be slid in under the radar.
  •         Refined carbohydrates. Refined carbs have been processed to remove the beneficial fiber. Examples are bread, pasta, and sweets.
  •         Alcohol. Moderate consumption isn’t a problem for most people, but more than a drink or two a day can increase inflammation.
  •         Meat. Don’t worry, we’re not telling you to go vegetarian. But processed meat and red meat are the worst and limiting all meat consumption will be beneficial in reducing inflammation.
  • Eat (or drink) more foods containing antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids. Some of these are:
  •         Fruits… especially berries and tart cherries.
  •         Vegetables… especially green leafy veggies and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
  •         Water… clean, filtered water is good for just about everything.
  •         Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel.
  •         Nuts and seeds… walnuts, flaxseeds, and chia seeds top the list.
  •         Other healthy fats like avocado and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.
  •         Turmeric, which should be combined with black pepper for best results.

 Supplement with pH-Balanced structured silver.

About Structured Silver

Silver has been used to protect health for thousands of years. And it has appeared in many forms over the years. There was ionic silver consisting of charged particles (ions) that float around in a solution. Unfortunately, with ionic silver the ions or particles fall out of solution, settling in a layer at the bottom. The ions can fall out after they’ve been consumed. If you’ve ever heard stories about people turning blue from consuming too much silver, that’s a side effect of ionic silver in the body. The condition, called argyria, happens now with homemade silver solutions.

Colloidal silver is a big improvement over ionic silver, having more powerful electrical charges. However, colloidal silver may separate out of solution like the ionic form, resulting in blue skin if taken in large volumes.

Acidity and the Human Body

The big problem with these more recent forms of silver is their acidity.

The human body is alkaline by nature… its pH ranges from between 7.35 to 7.45. Alkaline is the opposite of acidic. Because of this, the immune system tends to reject acidic silvers like colloidal and silver hydrosol.

That’s where pH-balanced structured silver comes in.

pH-balanced structured silver is bonded to pure water. Structured silver has a crystalline tetrahedral structure. It carries a charge that allows it to fire repeatedly at and destroy the microbes that cause inflammation. And its bond does not break… it does not fall out of solution. And it’s alkaline.

With alkaline structured silver, rather than being rejected by the immune system (and giving the immune system more work to do), it works with the body and the immune system to support it.

What people are saying about My Doctor Suggests

Never be without.

Bought these and the honey and lemon ones, and like them both. I like the honey & lemon ones best, but plan on trying the other flavors as well and buying some for stocking stuffers. They taste good and do help with the sore throat I have from strep throat. I also have an occasional chronic cough from one of my bp meds, and plan on having these on hand for that as well.

Great for first aid and wrinkles

I have been using My Dr. Suggests gel, liquid and lozenges for a while now. This gel is wonderful for wounds and burns and is the very first and most important thing in my first aid kit. It is the best thing ever for insect bites, fever blisters sunburns but my favorite use is as a wrinkle treatment. Almost like magic it makes the lines disappear and firms the skin. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did!

These are the best throat lozenges I have ever used!

these are the best throat lozenges Ive ever used. The ginger is strong and soothing and I feel like the silver did shorten the duration of my sore throat.

Very nice soap

Very nice soap. Lathers nicely, nice fragrance, but you can definitely tell there’s no added fragrance, which is great for me, since my skin usually rebels against most nasty additives. I had a problem with a rash on my leg that wasn’t getting better with any OTC treatment. I started using this & within a week there was definite improvement. Love it for my face as well, leaves skin soft & in less need of moisturizer.

Great Lotion!

Super moisturizing! My kids all have eczema and this lotion kept it at bay. We’ve been thrilled with the results. It’s not too thick, either. Absorbs beautifully.
