 Breaking News!

Mike is a carpenter, he has helped us build on a thousand square feet on two different houses and we have known him for sixteen years and have become very good friends. One week ago he called and said “I have to see you guys. I’ve just come from the medical doctor and I need you to look at my leg.” I thought “Oh no, it must be bad, and here we go again.” Because cases like Mike’s always seem to find us like the pictures on pages 90-100. We always hope we won’t need to be called in on situations like this. The medical doctor looked at it and said “Here’s two weeks of antibiotics and I’ll see you in fourteen days.” Mike’s leg was beet red on the front, the size of a cantaloupe. Well, it sure looked like blood poisoning to us and the scab was healed over. So I told Mike “All we can do is put clay on it and see where the infection is, as the clay won’t dry on the infected area.” To make a long story short, tons of infection drained out. We used clay, catalyst water and potato poultice every day and in one week it is almost healed. He could have lost his leg; needless to say Mike is very grateful and angry at the same time that he was treated so neglectfully by the medical doctor. Just so happens our grand daughter Ashley was here getting a massage and had a camera phone with her, so we were able to capture what the clay, potato poultice and catalyst water was able to do to help save his leg. Sovereign Silver Colloidal Silver Gel  and drinking half  a gallon of colloidal silver water that Mike made himself also helped the recovery of his infected leg. We are hoping this lesson of taking responsibility for your own care will be a teaching tool for you and if you have a problem; get a second opinion immediately.
