When I was 20, I got mono. Apparently, it manifests differently in everyone and everyone has different symptoms (other than the fatigue).
I got the regular fever, achy, and fatigue symptoms, but I also got pink eye in both eyes and a yeast infection. So fun!
Looking back, just like the book The Fourfold Path to Healing says, each time you get sick it is a spiritual AND physical transformation. When you get mono, a big transformation is going on and that was true for me at that time. I was processing a lot at that time about my mother and my health was so poor because I had been a vegetarian for a couple of years at that point.
*Note: I think there are some people who can thrive on vegetarianism, by eating lots of grass-fed butter, raw milk and pastured eggs, but I was not doing any of that. I was eating lots of grains and tofu. I was a vegetarian because I wanted no part in the cruel treatment of animals that happens in industrialized farming. I had no idea that I had another option of buying directly from farms that are dedicated to compassion and sustainability.
Anyway, so to deal with my pink eye I got antibiotics because I didn’t know any better.
Later, I found out about colloidal silver. For the next year or so, after I got mono, I got pink eye often, and whenever I felt it coming on, all I had to do was spray some colloidal silver in my eye and it was gone the next day.
It works great on styes as well. Just last week, I thought I had a pink eye. I had a horrible stye and my eyes were red and itchy. Turns out it was just the pollen making them red, but the stye was awful looking and painful.
I sprayed the colloidal silver in my eye and within an hour it came to a head. Later that night, I was able to lance it (pop the white head). I sprayed the colloidal silver in my eye again before bed and it was gone the next day.
Colloidal silver is highly antibacterial. So on top of using it for infections in your eye, you could spray into a glass of water and drink it to help fight any cold or flu bugs.
Have you ever used colloidal silver before?
