The SHC Respiratory Kit is a great buy. It features a low-noise compressor - and all the items listed here:
•Silver Air compressor, 4 medicine cups, 4 oxygen tubings, 3 corrugated tubings with adapters
•(1)16oz bottle of Nebulize Patented Chelated Silver
•(1)16oz bottle of Colloidal Silver
•Wound & Skin foam Topical
•Adult sized horse mask, a human mask, and a disinfectant spray.
This equine respiratory kit is complete and ready to use. This is a great product for horses with seasonal allergies and molds in hay.
We reached out to Becky Canday an owner of Silver Horse Care for a detailed response "I designed the mask to be light weight, easy to clean, and no crevices for bacteria to harbor. I want the horse to have access to the mist and have a good escape for the exhale.
If you seal in the mask you are also sealing in the C02 when the horse exhales. If you feel like you want to seal the mask around the horses nose you can add some foam pipe insulation around the top. Our colt mask comes with the foam - not to seal but to cushion the horses nose from the edge of the plastic. I do not see a benefit from sealing the horses nose in the mask - my opinion is that cutting off the air just makes the horse uncomfortable. I am not trying to force the air down the horse, like a bypap machine.
How far does it get into the lungs you might ask…. The silver goes where the air goes. I do not know of a factual way to monitor the depth. Our silver has been laboratory tested to kill bacteria in 60 seconds - out performing the competition hands down. A full kill of the bacteria is essential.
* Please keep in mind - It is recommended that you consult your veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment options for your horse. Clinical case studies have shown that the duration of respiratory ailments such as bronchitis, viruses, colds and various upper & lower infections may be shortened or eliminated with the use of silver solution and respiratory therapy.
What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal Silver is a tasteless, odourless, non-toxic, pure, natural substance consisting of sub-microscopic clusters of silver particles, suspended by a tiny electric charge placed on each particle, within a suitable liquid. The molecule's size usually ranges from 0.01 to about 0.001 micron in diameter (very small). The particles do not settle but remain suspended since the electric charge exerts more force than gravity on each particle. Colloidal is the form of choice since the body must convert a crystalline solution to colloidal before it can be used. Taken daily, it is a powerful adjunct to our immune systems, by killing harmful disease-causing organisms, and aids healing.
Silver and all minerals are obtained from food we eat. This comes directly from organic soil containing living organisms. These organisms assist in making the minerals available to the vegetation. However, if we eat fruit and vegetables grown on chemical fertilizers, as most plants are grown today, we do not get the necessary quantity of vitamins, minerals and trace elements which occur in organically grown foods. This results in deficiencies which progress over time resulting in an impaired immune function. The results are diseases of aging. Dr. Robert Backer noticed a correlation between low silver levels and sickness; colds, flu, etc. Some Biochemists suspect that a silver deficiency is possibly one of the main reasons cancer exists and is increasing at such a rapid rate today. Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used silver in his cancer treatment for many years. He says it has brought on rapid remission in many patients whom other doctors had given up on.
How Colloidal Silver Works
The presence of liquid Colloidal Silver benefits humans by disabling the oxygen metabolism enzyme of a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. One of the primary Colloidal Silver benefits is that unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics that destroy beneficial enzymes, Colloidal Silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus Colloidal Silver is absolutely safe for humans, animals, plants and all multi-celled living matter.
Liquid Colloidal Silver Benefits
Liquid Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver into a liquid, such as water. These microscopic particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Liquid Colloidal Silver benefits us by working as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one- celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. In short, the bad guys suffocate. Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to develop. In fact, antibiotics are only effective against perhaps a dozen forms of bacteria and fungi, but never viruses. Because no known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver, liquid Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease- causing pathogens.
Colloidal Silver Uses
Since there is not enough room to list all the Colloidal Silver benefits, here is a partial list of conditions it has been used successfully to treat: acne, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, blood parasites, bubonic plague, burns (colloidal silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive), cancer, cholera, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhoea, hay fever, herpes, leprosy, leukaemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, toxaemia, trench foot, all forms of viruses, warts and stomach ulcer. Colloidal silver benefits animals too, with veterinary uses including treatment for the canine parvo virus.
