THE SILVER BULLET WORKS...A MUST HAVE IN YOUR FAMILY
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary (5th ed.). Springfield, Massachusetts: Merriam-Webster Incorporated. 1994, a bullet is a component of firearm ammunition and is the projectile expelled from the firearm's barrel. The term is from Middle French and originated as the diminutive of the word boulle (boullet), which means "small ball".
Although by no means advocating violence, I find this description fitting for the amazing immune builder and killer of many viruses, bacteria, fungi and such like, known as colloidal silver or nano silver. It is the "small" or 'nano' size silver particle suspended in water which destroys the enemies of many elements causing sickness today.
When our church first learnt about Colloidal silver, through talks by our minister Br. Nyron Medina, I was very grateful because the world was talking about the threat of Ebola which killed many, especially in African Countries, in recent times. Also, other hemorrhagic fever viruses such as Chikungunya virus (ChikV) and Zika virus (ZikV) came on stream and many were suffering terribly from them. I read a lot about them and helped discover many facts which were important for us to understand as Health Reformers in our church-facts such as the fact that ChikV was developed as a bioweapon and that the United States Department of Defense had studied and found that nano sized particles of silver was successful in stopping the replication of these viruses in the human cell. This finding was eventually declassified and made available in the public domain. It also proved that Silver could kill Marbug and HIV viruses too. Learn more here https://www.scribd.com/document/317906922/Defense-Threat-Reduction-Agency-Silver-Nanoparticles-Neutralize-Hemorrhagic-Fever-Viruses
It became obvious to me that my family would have to ensure we had this health ammunition against the many created viruses and diseases in our world in these last and perilous times. In this short piece I wish to share my experiences with colloidal silver usage in two areas: To fight the flu and to address eye infections. A friend's experience with its usage against tonsilitis is also included.
1. Quick healing from flu symptoms.
One of the key things when using colloidal silver is to understand the difference in necessary protocol as an immune builder as opposed to after the onset of an infection. If you are using it to protect from infection, to build your immune system, then a teaspoon three times a day may suffice. For this purpose we keep it in a spray bottle and take it with us when we move about in society. About 10 sprays in the mouth (at any one given point in time) and held under the tongue for a minute or so before swallowing is effective.
However, if you already have symptoms of an infection, you need to take this same silver solution more often until the symptoms go. I remember well how horrible I was beginning to feel and knew that some virus was affecting me. I was out of silver and went straightway to the store to get some. I started taking 2 tablespoons from about 3:00 pm (15:00hrs) that evening. At that time I had a fever, headache, tired eyes and that feeling like your whole body is about to crash. I knew it was some sort of flu.
I knew I would need about two tablespoons every hour or two hours for the rest of the evening into the next day and for as long as it would take so I bought more than one bottles. Following this protocol into the night, I even took it whenever I would awake during the night to use the bathroom. I felt my body fight and knew by about 11pm that I had passed the worst. By about 9am the next day I was 90% better and I could not believe it. I was almost through the bottles we bought, especially since my husband was using it as well to ensure he did not contract the same virus I was fighting to get rid of, but it was more than worth it! I was relieved and told the story over and over.
2. Killed my Eye Infection (bacteria) over 2 days.
I had a heavy feeling in my eye and could feel pain when I blinked. It reminded me of the beginning of a stye inside my eye. I knew it was infected and when I examined it in the mirror I could see the extra redness, a bit of swelling and the appearance of a pimple like, which was very painful. I decided to use silver in my eye because from my reading it was beneficial for that also. My method including simply spraying the silver in the affected eye as often as I felt I needed to. By the end of one day I had done it several times. The silver burned, naturally I believe and it was not so different from using an eye drop as I recalled. The difference was it did not leave my eye feeling dry in any way, just stinging for a while and then subsided.
On day two I still had the infection but persisted with the silver, determined to use it for as long as was necessary. I had a presentation to make on day three and did not want to have a swollen eye. By day three I was normal and had almost forgot that I had pain in the eye just a day before. The pain was visibly gone and I kept batting my eyelids, searching for the pain which was no longer there. The eye had also cleared up and the pimple was gone. It seemed so miraculous.
A little over a month later I experienced a similar problem and instantly knew what to do and true to form it took only two days of several sprays in the eye for me to see complete recovery. I advise if your spray bottle is strong to pour out some in the cover and drop in the eye. An infected eye is extra sensitive and even a spray can seem harsh on it. (I know I went through that with a different spray bottle). You can also use a dropper instrument if you have one.
3. Tonsilitis and Sorethroat healer
A facebook friend complained in a post about a terrible throat problem she had which left her unable to eat. She expressed her suffering and I entered into her feelings and inboxed her. the conversation went something like this:
Me: "Good day. I hope you are well
I am sorry about your tonsilitis.
I use silver to get rid of virus and bacteria causing problems. You may wish to consider it because it works.
Colloidal Silver and Strep Throat
Is colloidal silver effective against strep throat? You’d better believe it is. In fact, it’s one of the fastest and safest strep throat remedies I’ve ever seen. Here’s how my wife and I learned about the powerful strep-fighting qualities of colloidal silver.
When I was in new york 2 years ago I bought the brand silverbiotics at the vitamin Shoppe. There are other brands as well
I wish you all the best.
Michelle: Thanks a lot I will look for it
Me: Good. The article gives an idea of how you use it, both drinking and gargling or holding at the back of the throat as much as possible.
I have done both
Michelle: Wow I am definitely getting this.
Michelle: Finally found it
Me: I'm glad you did
I pray you get great help. I wish you had got a bigger bottle.
How is your situation today?
Michelle: Really bad after 4 conference calls for an hour each I can not use my voice
Me: oh my, that's bad
Michelle: And my sister was diagnosed with Zika today
Me: use different methods..swallow some as well as try to gargle or keep at back of throat/affected area
shocks....she needs silver
I gave silver to a sister at church sabbath gone who could barely move one arm from zika
that was like after 2pm she took it and by evening when she got home after 7 she could use the hand again
Michelle: Wow this is powerful. Thanks for the recommendation.
Me: Good day Michelle
Hope you are well. How is your tonsilitis?
Michelle: Hello I am doing a lot better. Three hours after taking the silver I was able to drink water and eat a mango.
That is great to hear!"
Silver is becoming like water in our house now. We try our best not to be without it. The cost cannot be considered when one understands the benefit and how it can save your life. Please learn more about it. It is being credited with killing cancer cells, pneumonia, helping patients who suffer from eczema and asthma (you can indeed find the silver gel for topical use for healing of skin problems), yeast infection in women, the aggressive H Pylori bacteria and more. Do your own research and see what you find. As for me and my house Health Reform in these last days definitely means using silver regularly in our diet. Our next step is to make our own, soon by God's grace. We thank God for every good gift and knowledge he has given to us as we serve Him in spirit and in truth, that we might be preserved in good health as our soul prospers as he wishes and for His glory. 3 John 2.

MY VEGAN CHEESE SAUCES
I recently shared this on a caribbean food page on facebook. I share it here with you all.
The following recipes are for two cheese sauces I normally make for use on foods such as baked potatoes, lasagne, macaroni pie and pizza. The original recipe is not mine but I have adjusted it according to my liking and to incorporate locally grown and made ingredients such as homemade coconut oil and sea salt picked from the salt pond in Union Island in my multi-island state St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
RECIPE#1- NACHO CHEESE SAUCE
- 2 potatoes,
- 1 carrot,
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast,
- 2 tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil)
- Juice of half a lime - garlic powder, sea salt, paprika to taste -Cayenne pepper (optional)
RECIPE#2-EASY CHEESE SAUCE
Ingredients: - 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1 cup coconut milk -
2 tsp nutritional yeast -
Dash garlic powder, sea salt, cayenne pepper.
NOTE- Vegan food is healthy, nutritious and just as tasty as foods you were accustomed to with flesh in it. I find that the tastiness of these cheese sauces, to vegans and non-vegans alike, is proof f the fact that seasonings make all the difference. So if you liked cheese and are changing over to veganism, you can still replicate the cheesy taste from highly nutritious nutritional yeast and these other ingredients prepared correctly. Even you will be surprised. Just try it!
Original recipes as well as two other vegan cheese options (including a solid cheese) can be found at the link below. I will share my experience when I try them.
Also original recipe shared on the caribbean food page is here
May you prosper spiritually and in good health by selecting the best option for food, revealed to us by God-the vegan health reform diet of the Bible- Genesis 1:29 KJV. Amen.

DISCOVERING PURPLE SWEET POTATO
My upstairs neighbor recently asked my husband to help him dig some sweet potatoes he had planted in our yard. I never expected to see this bright reddish-purplish sweet potatoes for the first time in my life. Not only was it my first time beholding this plant food but I was amazed at the rich color thereof. Apart from looking forward to eating it, I wanted to know its health benefits and was I surprised at my discovery! Called Okinawan sweet potato because of its popularity in Japan, this purple tuber has been scientifically proven to prevent cancer, to be rich in antioxidants and comparably stronger than its white and orange cousin variety in these respects.
We have since steamed it, fried it and even mashed it and I am hungry for more as I discover its rich health benefits. The taste is similar to the white sweet potato but I find its texture rather soft and melting in the mouth. If you can find it near you, you should definitely include it into your diet. If you grow it, better still.
So What's in a purple sweet potato?
Well according to www.downtoearth.org it is a "power purplehouse of nutrition". "The primary nutritional benefit, and the one for which Okinawan sweet potatoes are especially prized, is their high antioxidant levels. The antioxidant known as anthocyanin is the pigment which is responsible for the brilliant purple color of the flesh. It is the same pigment that gives blueberries, red grapes and red cabbage their color. Blueberries are well known for their high antioxidant levels, however, the Okinawan sweet potato actually has 150 percent more antioxidants than blueberries"www.downtoearth.org/health/nutrition/okinawan-sweet-potato-purple-powerhouse-nutrition (Be sure to check the resources at the bottom of this article ). Amazing huh? As you may know antioxidants fights against free radicals which cause cancer. They are also good for cardiovascular (heart related) health.
Scientists have even gone as far as to extract the anthocyanin antioxidant from the purple sweet potato and sought to create what they call an 'anthocyanin enriched purple sweet potato' variety which they have tested and found has preventative powers in treating Colorectal cancer (colon and rectum cancer). Take some time and read about it here www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3980565/
Remember also that sweeet potatoe leaves may be consumed for its nutritional value as well and for a gentle reminder of how you may cook it, see my previous blog piece on the subject here www.thusiasdaevangel.com/health-reform-blog/benefits-of-sweet-potato-leaves
Santé! To your good health and Bon appetit!
Most of all, may God bless you with His revealed truths that you may by faith select/choose His original, healthy vegan diet for mankind, in order to face the tests of these dangerous times in the earth. Genesis 1:29, Revelation 22:2
