One good text to be familiar with is Dr Becker and G. Selden's book The Body Electric, which is initially about experimentation concerning the ability of certain animals to replicate limbs, eyes, ect after damaging them and how that knowledge might asssit us in our healing. This book covers how we learned about the once ignored low amperage electrical field properties of organisims. In their work they found that silver was the best choice for delivering currents and keeping the injured sites anaseptic. Later descovering that silver itself was also a part of the makeup of our biology. This book covers a wide range and is valuable for any interested in knowing about body dynamics.
Your expereince w silver solutions is good anecdotal info for u but do know that the Science of silver being a bacteriacide is found in many sources for at least one hundred years and used as a therapy for thousands and evan now is being used in Bandaid brand bandages for that ability. Its being a necessary component of our systems is also to be found in the biological litereature. Of course this doesnt mean we can ingest any thing found in our systems w no or little understanding safetly, we do need to do diligent investigation , not just going with what some one person or group advises, as u mention, it is often organised ignorance that propells people to agree about something being actually true, when it is actually false.
Iodine is also a necessary component in every human cell and organ, for healthy life and activity. It is well documented that the thyroid uses Iodine more than any other organ but all cells and organs use Iodine for activation and conversion proceses. It is elemental in our immune system and many who suffer continued or chronic flus ect do so simpley because the sinus glands are Iodine deficient. If we are evan minamally deficient in iodine we will surely suffer since the thyroid is so important in acitvating every one of our glands and many other process as well, if it is subpar all our systems will be subpar. If we are suffering, acutely or chronicly we should always take in to consideration first the health of our thyroid gland. It is well documented that iodine is not toxic tho if we are deficient in iodine, then the items which have taken iodines place, not only negativly alter our bodies functions but will also cause discomfort while they are being erradicated by the ingestion of Iodine and thus confuse us by mimicing toxic events.
Not sure how the vit c (#3) plays out in your understanding but in mine it is one of the much needed and much used enzymes, as all vitamins are, that activate process' in our cells and organs and if we are deficient our systems will again like w iodine run faultely, look for substitutes, which often confuse, and thus cause improper action or worse. Furthermore re ascorbic acid tho it is certainly acidic and w all that that implies , it being actually a toxin is debateable, besides that to the degree that might be true, along with the unfortunate fact that humans are one of the only mammels who do not have the ability to produce their own vit #3 , we excrete any excess we have ingested imediately.
Sure the natural way is great and powerfull but we need to go all the way if we choose that fashion and since it is easier said than done, and seeing as most of us are the products of and full of many unnatural creations, and we live amidst more unnatural situations, outside in society as well as inside our bodies, than in recorded history, that sometimes we do follow protocols that mightnt be considered exactly natural, as we wind our way back to healthy ballance. Tho natural vs unnatural are reletive terms, kinda like truth, people often say to me truth, whats the truth, and the answer is whats not, because illusion is only a mental fantasy, ultimately haveing no substance, no actual validity to be revealed, similarly natural and unnatural can be a confusing topic to those of us holding to some mental equation of how things are.
Course we dont want to fall into the confusing thinking of the Luddites not do we want to proceed along the opposite lines of endevor, and for me, I dont think a middle ground is the best either, but rather a continued full investigation w out fear or attachment, using any conception, any protocol, any tool, so that we can uncover the way to freeing ourselves from suffering, physical and mental.
