Colloidal silver has been used for 115 years as a natural antibiotic in countless applications. It fell out of favor with the advent of prescription antibiotics. But in recent years, as antibiotic resistance to potentially lethal bacteria like MRSA and SARS has escalated, the use of colloidal silver is making a come back and gaining respect. Like anything else, there has been much debate on the different forms of silver (ionic silver, silver protein, true colloidal silver). I want to save you a lot of time, and focus on the scientifically backed principles and guidelines for the best option: true colloidal silver. I’ve listed a number of resources at the bottom of this page that validate the safety and effectiveness of colloidal silver. For now, we’ll focus on the benefits. So what can colloidal silver do? Here are a just a few of its incredible health benefits: Proven effective against antibiotic resistant microbes like SARS and MRSA Helps eliminate the streptoccocus and staphloccocus bacteria It can be used for ear infections When used topically, creates a healthy environment for thriving skin by killing bacteria and dissolving pore blocking sebum. Use it topically for yeast infections, oral thrush and jock itch It has anti-tumor properties against MCF-7 human breast cancer cells You can spray it on wounds and infections for faster healing and to minimize scarring Use it regularly to support your immune system Clearly colloidal silver is liquid gold! It is my go to supplement choice for regular health maintenance, just about every sickness from the flu- to strep throat and even topical applications for minor scrapes and burns. My husband and I have reduced our medicine/first aid cabinet to a few boxes of Band-Aids, some hydrogen peroxide and our favorite brand of colloidal silver, Sovereign Silver. So are you surprised that I incorporated and said “liquid gold” into a […]

I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days to January one. New year, new start and many goals in mind. Something about the new year births new ambition in me! Not only will I be kicking myself back into healthy eating, I decided to take it a step further and challenge myself (and you) to some serious skin care commitments with serious results. Over the years, I have become well diverse in the many facets of beauty. Growing up in a salon, attending Aveda for cosmetology, practicing hair and skin for the last decade and eventually creating my own wholesome line of organic beauty products, one thing remains. No matter who you are, where you come from or where you are going, the image of yourself remains crucial for your overall well-being. While I believe that beauty truly does comes from within, it is a fact that your outward opinion of yourself directly affects your inward self. This is called self image. There is overwhelming research showing how ones self image can directly affect everything from daily moods and career success to social status and intimacy behind closed doors. If we know that the way we feel about ourself is directly related to the way we look on the outside, doesn’t it make sense to nurture and protect the organ that covers our entire body? Our skin is an organ that thrives on daily cleansing, exfoliation and nutrient-rich topical food (also known as serum and daily moisturizer). It wasn’t until I started creating and using my own nutritious skin care products that I saw a miraculous change in my skin. Not a day goes by that I am not complimented on my skin. Not my shirt, or the necklace I am wearing, my skin! I can tell you that THAT makes […]
Stretch marks. Every pregnant woman’s enemy! When I was pregnant with my first child, I went to all lengths to prevent stretch marks. What I am about to confess will surely have you questioning my sanity! OR, maybe…you will wonder why you didn’t think of my idea. I guess it just depends on how much you fear(ed) stretch marks!!! My first pregnancy came as a surprise. At 20 years old, little did I know that stretch marks were the least of my worries! Oh to go back to that time. If only I could tell my young self that there would bigger fish to fry than a few stretch marks imposing on my perfect skin! Never the less, here it is, for your entertainment (and my embarrassment). I would start nightly routine by lathering jojoba oil over every inch of my body. Next, I would call my sister into the room. God knows, she is the only one I could allow to see this ridiculous routine. She would hold the saran wrap while I twirled round and round until my entire trunk was wrapped up like a saran covered mummy! I would leave my mummified body to soak in the oil for the next 4 or 5 hours! 9 years, and 2 more kids later… I am thankful that I took great care of my skin while pregnant, but even more thankful for the knowledge I have acquired! Much has been learned, and I have much to share! While hydrating and feeding your skin can help limit or reduce stretch marks, sometimes, there is nothing that can prevent them completely (sigh). Stretch marks happen when your body grows faster than your skin can keep up with. This causes the elastic fibers just under the surface of the skin to break, […]
