Silver Shield Webinar

This was a really good one and we learned a lot. One of the questions that was asked which may interest those of you who did not get a chance to watch the webinar is this:

How long does Silver Shield remain active? What is the shelf life?

They have tested Silver Shield Liquid at 8.5 yrs and it still killed
98.9% of MRSA.

The Silver Shield Gel, once opened, will get more oxygen in which may cause it to gradually turn amber. You might notice that if there’s any residue on the lid, it turns this color. It does not mean it has lost its effectiveness.

So, the end answer was that they considered shelf life to be at least 10 years for the liquid and 3-5 years for the gel.

Another tip was using Silver Shield Liquid in water to purify. A topic that was in the minds of many, at the time of the webinar, that had flooding from the recent hurricane. Dr. Pedersen said you could use 4 drops in a cup of water and to let it sit for 1.4 minutes to purify it.

Little Heroes Highlight

During Leader’s Success Summit in San Diego, we came close to reaching our goal of $20,000 to help build a health clinic in Nepal. The clinic will provide education and awareness about decreasing the spread of communicable diseases and improving overall health and sanitation. It will also provide much needed maternal and pediatric care for the local people. It is estimated that once completed, the health clinic will serve 20,000 people in its first year and decrease the infant mortality rate by 60 percent. Thanks to all those that donated and made this health clinic possible!

There are over 8,000 pages and literally a million links to information. For ideas on health problems, use the online catalog. Testimonials are favorites since they tell you what worked for somebody else. We can’t show them on The Herbs Place due to FTC/FDA laws, so we have posted years of success stories on our site. You can share these testimonials with customers by cutting and pasting it into an email.

It is broken into four main sections: disease overviews, treatment options, drug information (includes information on prescription drugs, over the counter drugs, herbs and nutritional supplements) and clinical trials.

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia and has become the largest reference source on the Internet. Type in the name of an herb, supplement, health condition, etc., and you will be guided to entries with extensive information. One word of caution: Anyone with computer access to Wikipedia can edit the entries. As a result, the entries are quite up to date, but there can also be significant misinformation.

This website contains information about the supplement industry as well as herbs, vitamins and homeopathic remedies. It also has a link to an online version of the Dietary Supplement Information Bureau’s publication, Field Guide to Herbal Dietary Supplements.
