Anybody who has been following my mom's story knows that she was on the brink up until less than 8 weeks ago. None of her doctors could figure out what had made her SO sick SO quickly, completely dependent on oxygen and prednisone. Awaiting results of her bronchoscopy, she had an appt scheduled with Dr Philley at UT Tyler, but they did not want to see her until she had received a FINAL REPORT diagnosing her with MAC, not just the preliminary results. My mom was so sick, and the doctors knew time was not on her side. Therefore, they decided to perform a VATS procedure on January 4. She was released from hospital the next day but came down with pneumonia on January 8. Two days later, her chest, abdomen, neck and face swelled up. She had developed pneumothorax. Basically a collapsed lung/leak and her body was filling with air. A very rare complication. Pushing on her body, it sounded and felt like rice krispies. The weirdest thing! She was kept in the hospital until the 'leak' had repaired itself.

Immediately upon being released, she began nebulizing colloidal silver. Fast forward 2 weeks later, she was completely off oxygen and prednisone. 1 week later, she was out walking a mile daily. This is the woman who three weeks earlier could not walk to the front door without her sa02 dropping into the 80's. My mother began walking her daily 4 miles again two weeks ago. This is all in my previous posts for the full story.

She had her first appointment with UT Tyler and Dr. Philley on Friday. Spending two hours reading over all her records, she did not expect to walk in and see such a healthy woman. Dr. Philley said my mom was VERY ILL, and to see where she was now made her a complete mystery. She also said her MAC is in remission.

Mom attributes her healing to these three things: colloidal silver, Bragg's apple cider vinegar, and prayer. Dr. Philley agreed with the prayer and told her whatever she was doing was working and to keep doing it. She did state there are not any studies that prove or disprove that colloidal silver heals MAC, nor did she tell her to stop doing it. Whether it helped or was coincidental, it sure didn't hurt. It's a beautiful day here in Dallas, and she just took my daughter horseback riding.

Her lung capacity in early January was 48%. As of yesterday, less than 60 days later, her lung capacity is 87%!!
No antibiotics, no oxygen, no prednisone!

Is it the fluid extract for Adults and Children or the Honey syrup herbal supplement? Ordering now along with the cough drops.

I am certainly not suggesting anybody nebulize the silver, only sharing her experience. Colloidal Silver has always been her go-to if anybody is sick in our family: ear infections, stomach bugs, colds, cuts, etc.
In addition to these alternative therapies, and that which I truly believe has pulled her through, has been her ridiculously positive attitude and refusal to allow this to control her or take up residence. I often questioned if it was denial. Actually, I believed wholeheartedly she was in denial. But yesterday, she did her full 4 mile walk she has always done 4-5 days a week up until September.

Update:
Seven weeks ago, my mom had a VATS procedure. She had been so sick since September relying on prednisone and oxygen, they had no other choice. Three days later, she developed pneumonia followed by pneumothorax. It was at this time she started to nebulize colloidal silver. She does it every other day, along with drinking Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar daily. She has now been completely off the prednisone and oxygen for 4 weeks, and her improvement is nothing short of remarkable. She is back in the gym 4 days a week. Her doctor's cannot even believe it is the same patient. They literally said 'you could not twist my arm to treat you; keep doing exactly what you're doing!' Maybe it's coincidence, maybe not, but 6 weeks ago we didn't think my mom was going to make it.

In addition, my father got the flu and an awful cough a few weeks ago. She flat out refused to allow anything to interfere with her ability to take care of him and, much to my dismay, insisted on sleeping with him. I was LIVID at their senselessness, but she didn't get a thing!

She is still scheduled to go to Tyler on March 6 for her first appointment since the MAC was confirmed 3 weeks ago.
