Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com...
TV's Dr. Oz has publicly endorsed colloidal silver usage…again, for the third time in the past 18 months.
This time, he's done so along with Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, author of the best-selling new natural health cookbook, It's All Good.
I'll tell you exactly what they said about colloidal silver in just a minute. But first, a little background…
"Antibacterial, Antifungal and Antiviral"
As you may remember, Dr. Oz first publicly endorsed colloidal silver usage on his television program, The Dr. Oz Show back on February 9, 2012.
During the show, he dubbed colloidal silver a great remedy for sore throats, and said other sore throat remedies don't work as well because they don't address the root cause of the problem, which of course, is the infection.
Then, in another episode of his show in February 2013, he introduced his viewers to his father-in-law, the world-renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Gerald Lemole, M.D., and explained that his father-in-law often incurred the wrath of his fellow medical doctors by recommending natural treatments when he felt they were called for.
When Dr. Oz pressed his father-in-law for information on what kind of natural treatments he uses in his own household, Dr. Lemole replied that one of his favorites was colloidal silver, saying:
"Colloidal silver is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral, and it's really good stuff for if you feel an oncoming sore throat, or even if you have a wound. You can spray it on your wound."
Dr. Oz agreed with him, and even allowed his father-in-law to reach over with a pump-spray bottle of colloidal silver and playfully spray some into his throat, hitting Dr. Oz on the chin with some of the silver spray by mistake.
So twice in a one-year period Dr. Oz publicly endorsed the use of colloidal silver on his television show.
What Dr. Oz Says Now
Now, on the August 29, 2013 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, both Dr. Oz and well-known actress Gwyneth Paltrow – star of numerous Hollywood films and winner of an Oscar for her performance as Lady Viola in Shakespeare in Love – heartily endorsed colloidal silver usage.
Indeed, after talking about her new book on natural health cooking for a few minutes, Dr. Oz then took Gwyneth Paltrow over to an onstage display of Paltrow's four favorite natural health remedies, and asked her to explain how she uses each one.
Here's a partial transcript of what they said, from the segment on colloidal silver:
Dr. Oz: (gesturing toward a tiny bottle of colloidal silver) The next trick is to help avoid germs.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Yes.
Dr. Oz: There's actually a TON of data behind it. Please share it with everyone.
Gwyneth Paltrow: (taking the bottle of colloidal silver and holding it up) Okay. Well, people think I'm insane because when I get on an airplane, when I get to my seat, I spray this all over my seat, and then under my tongue, because the research says that colloidal silver really keeps viruses away. It's a real viral-repellant. So I use that a lot, especially when we're traveling. I spray the kid's seats and people think "What is this crazy woman doing?"
Dr. Oz: This actually was the first antibiotic. It was silver.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Was it?
Dr. Oz: Yes. They used to put silver coins in milk to keep the milk clean. These are accepted therapies. And you know, we haven't thought about it very much, because we have antibiotics. But this is a very smart way of killing of stuff. We actually, in our family, are crazy about squirting it in our throat. It's our throat spray, our everyday throat spray. We squirt it in there, and off we go. Do you do that too?
Gwyneth Paltrow: Yes, absolutely.
Dr. Oz: What do you think of the taste?
Gwyneth Paltrow: I don't think it's so bad. It's pretty mellow.
Dr. Oz: It's pretty neutral. But we have some fun home remedies for making it taste more palatable for the kids. If you make it taste good for the kids, they actually will believe it's something important for them. Okay?
Gwyneth Paltrow: That's true!
Dr. Oz: By the way, all of these remedies are available in health food stores.
And that was the end of the segment on colloidal silver. Yes, it was very short. Maybe one day Dr. Oz will do a full show on the benefits of colloidal silver. We can only hope.
But until then, we have to be thankful that a man with such a huge national following has been willing to thrust colloidal silver firmly into the limelight three times in the past 18 months, however briefly!
Bringing Truth to Light
As you can see, Dr. Oz seemed particularly enamored of using colloidal silver as a daily throat spray for the entire family, to help keep germs away.
And Gwyneth Paltrow seemed to be more interested in using it externally, as a viral disinfectant, as well as under the tongue, as an antiviral remedy. (It makes me wonder if she's read my website, Colloidal Silver Kills Viruses.)
Of course, colloidal silver is well-known for its profound antibacterial and antiviral qualities. Those are indeed two of the most obvious and beneficial uses of colloidal silver.
But you can learn dozens more ways people use colloidal silver to fight infection and disease – even serious diseases like MRSA and food poisoning – on the Colloidal Silver Success Stories website.
Obviously, this kind of publicity for colloidal silver from such nationally recognized celebrities and well-known natural health proponents can only be good.
And that's particularly true since the FDA has been so adamant about keeping knowledge of colloidal silver usage suppressed by passing regulations making it illegal for colloidal silver manufacturers to tell the American public about its astonishing array of infection-fighting benefits.
So kudos to Dr. Oz and and Gwyneth Paltrow for taking a public stand on behalf of safe, natural colloidal silver, and helping bring it to the attention of the American public who are still largely unaware of its powerful and medically documented healing and infection-fighting qualities.
