Great idea. I found this website that details salt therapy for our lungs:
"These microscopic salt crystals enter deep into the lungs where they absorb and neutralize harmful bacteria and allergens, reducing swelling in the lung tissue.
As a result, breathing becomes much easier for anyone suffering from respiratory problems such as asthma, shortness of breath, cystic fibrosis, hay fever, allergies, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, COPD and other ailments of the lungs."
Simply put salt water into an ultrasonic air humidifier, and breath deeply. https://www.salinetherapy.com/
Amazon.Com sells inexpensive deep Sea Salt water, I don't recall the brand name, but had something to do with Hawaii.
I think I may even try this out myself the next time my lungs get into trouble.
Hi Heartful, you might want to seriously consider taking 10-12mg of LugolsIodine daily as well and mega doses of vitamin C. Those will mop up very well along with the others. Chances are that if you have had Amalgams for any period of time, you are very deficient in Iodine as most are. My favorite is Lugols. Cheap, effective (200 years) and safe. Besides that, they are vital nutrients nearly everyone is in dire need of. Average Japanese women consume some 13mg every day of Iodine rich food. Pretty darn good for the brain too. :)Blessings.
I would add that the research advice is that the PPM's are often misleading as to the CS efficacy.
As is repeated here and in the research literature, the CS ion atom groupings called 'particles', size, are the defining characteristic of efficacy (not mentioning the obvious or to re-litigate the ion vs non ion atom efficacy in the matter).
This is why (less than)<25nm @ 10PPM is considered the model for therapeutic use and the smaller the particle the more success we should experience.(no matter the PPM's of larger than 20nm particles).
(and when we consider bacteria size and gram state, the size of the particle can be the one determining factor in generating a therapeutic outcome or not).
Questions here are also, what type of burning, how long does it last, is a genuine Neb being used (which seems likely considering the type of illness involved)?
Since there is no discomfort reported using the product straight, the 'Q's' may be irrelevant and the real 'Q' is why even dilute at all.
If the initial treatment wasn't effective, and subsequent uses were deemed necessary, then one supposition would be as stated. The product is suspect as to it's therapeutic efficacy due to it's particle size, since the staph bacterium is gram positive, (and also has a natural defense against our own immune system), the CS ion would need to enter the bacterium cell and work it's antibiotic nature there (which it can do well) as opposed to the much easier membrane destruction which occurs with gram negative bacteria, of which the Pseudomonus is (but particle size, not PPMs, being relevant here as well).
One thing that is worth considering is that due to the nature of CF causing thickened fluid to coat the airways, any burning upon using the nebulizer w water would seem to be odd, tho obviously there is a complaint, so as JE mentioned, figuring out the actual culprit may not be that difficult. One 'Q' might be if the water was steam distilled or chemical distilled, and was it structured/revitalized in some way before using (an important but misunderstood aspect to all water ingestion, especially distilled, tho I'm not thinking that this would be related to your burning experience).
But the real question to me is, how is the treatment working on the symptoms of Staph and Pseudomonas. And if a quick reversal or lessening of symptoms isn't noticed, find another(or make another) CS product.
1st week is showing amazing results in lung function. By taking 1 tblsp 2 x a day my lungs have actually started clearing themselves out, where in years past they would just get loaded up and giving me a chest cold, asthma attacks & even pneumonia.
Without nebulizing, my lung function is returning to normal. This shows up in spades when romancing the wife. No more breathless gasping, huffing & puffing for air. YAY !
So far I am thrilled with taking ionic silver daily as preventive maintenance to prevent my usual chronic annual suffering with lung problems.
One last thing, while sifting through old messages, I discovered this video of using an ultrasonic humidifier to get ionic silver into the air. I have just ordered one from Amazon.Com. Just in case I need more than 1 tbsp 2 x a day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehmxjbIVqUU
Since my new Silvertron Elite generator can make 1 gallon batches at the touch of a button daily, this approach is practical.
How about starting with vitamin D?
The optimum levels are 60-80ng/mL.
Then, vitamin E and iodine/iodide?
I have read that serrapeptase can help, but I don't know anyone that it has helped. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12911824
