Harnessing the Power of Chamomile Tea and Colloidal Silver
Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is a common condition that causes redness, itchiness, and inflammation of the conjunctiva—the thin, transparent membrane that covers the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids. While medical treatment may be necessary, there are several natural remedies that can help alleviate symptoms and support the healing process.
Chamomilla, commonly known as chamomile, is a flowering plant that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine due to its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Chamomile tea is rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids and terpenoids, which can help reduce inflammation and combat infections.
Colloidal silver is a suspension of tiny silver particles in a liquid base. It has long been recognized for its antimicrobial properties and its ability to fight against a wide range of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Although research on the effectiveness of colloidal silver for treating pink eye specifically is limited, its antimicrobial activity suggests it may help combat bacterial or viral infections associated with pink eye.
When selecting colloidal silver, it's important to choose a high-quality product from a reputable source. Look for products that are made with pure silver and have a particle size within the nanometer range for optimal effectiveness. Check out my Fullscript store for a few options.
To make chamomile tea, follow these simple steps:
Boil water and pour it into a glass or metal cup (don't use plastic for any hot liquids)
Add a chamomile tea bag or a tablespoon of dried chamomile flowers
Steep the tea for about 5 minutes
Remove the tea bag or strain out the flowers
Allow the tea to cool down to a lukewarm temperature
Once the tea has cooled, follow the steps below:
Wash your hands really well
Take out 2-3 tbsp of the chamomilla tea and add 2-3 drops of colloidal or smart silver
If you have a dropper, use a clean one to get a few drops in. If you don't have a dropper, take a clean organic cotton ball/disk or a soft cloth, soak it in the chamomile tea mixture
Lie down and tilt your head back slightly
Gently squeeze 1 drop of the tea mixture in each affected eye
Blink a few times to help spread the liquid over the eye surface
Repeat after a couple minutes. (If using a cotton ball, after you put a couple drops in, put the soak cotton ball over your eye and let it sit for a couple minutes instead)
Discard cotton balls in the trash
You can repeat this process several times a day, for a few days, ensuring that you use a fresh cotton ball or cloth each time.
