  1. You have apparently not been reading in the right places. Please read my reply to Keith, and you will never be able to say that again.
  2. I don't recall the site. The excerpt was made because the article also discussed other topics. However, I found a collection of quotations about colloidal silver on another site, and it contains quotations by most of the sources cited in the excerpt I published. Here is the link for that site: http://csilverhl.com/12701.html Here is a link to the Science Digest article: https://www.advancedsilver.com/third_party_silver_info/Science_Digest_March_1978.pdf And here are the quotations from the csilver.com site: Professional Quotes Regarding Colloidal Silver "… in this eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine… perhaps, it soon will be recognized as: OUR MIGHTIEST GERM FIGHTER. For example, even the most powerful pharmaceutical antibiotics are effective against only a small number of microorganisms, and then only until drug-resistant strains develop. Yet, research at Washington University School of Medicine … has shown that silver is bactericidal to nearly 650 different disease-causing organisms, and that silver–resistant bacteria strains do not develop." ---Science Digest "It killed not only the HIV virus, but every virus that was tested in the lab." ---U.C.L.A. Medical Center "When silver was present, the cancer cell de-differentiated and the body was restored." Dr. Gary Smith "…major enhancement of both the rate and competency of the healing process…the germ-killing of silver has been known for some time…the Soviets use silver ions to sterilize recycled water aboard their space stations… It kills even antibiotic strains, and also works on fungus infections… It stimulates bone-forming cells, cures the most common stubborn infections of all kinds of bacteria, and stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues." Robert O. Becker, M.D. –author of The Body Electric "… studies showed the spectrum of organisms susceptible to electrically generated silver ions was wide and …. compared favorably with…other antibiotics" --- J.A. Spadaro, Ph.D. "I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes." Dr. Henry Crooks "…the colloidal metals… are remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states."--- Dr. Hirschberg, John Hopkins Hospital "Silver is one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is for all practical purposes non-toxic. Silver has been proven to be effective against hundreds of infectious conditions. It has tremendous anti-microbial power; the history of safe and successful colloidal silver use is extensive, and the number of current health professionals and individuals that successfully utilize colloidal silver to reduce the length and severity of infectious disorders is growing exponentially." Zane Baranowski, CN "To primitive life forms…silver is as toxic as the most powerful chemical disinfectants and this, coupled with its relative harmlessness to animate life (i.e. mammals), gives it great potential as a disinfectant." N.R. Thompson – Runcorn Health Laboratory in England "With the many research reports and personal testimonials of it being a full spectrum natural antibiotic that destroys virtually all known and developing/mutating pleomorphic pathogens would be a lot of excitement regarding colloidal silver, especially from within the medical community…The harsh reality regarding the FDA, AMA, Pharmaceutical, and scientific community is that there appears to be a lack of enthusiasm. Reluctance to help validate the effectiveness of colloidal silver seems all too common. Although this is changing, the reason for the possible resistance may be rooted primarily in economics. For example, colloidal silver is regarded by the FDA as a pre-1938 drug. Moreover, the FDA does not have jurisdiction regarding a pure mineral element. There has been no incentive for the aforementioned bodies to go through the expensive process of controlled studies to provide proof regarding uses and effectiveness, such as the UCLA and others have done." E. Vincent Goetsch in his book, "Colloidal Silver Maker & Researcher’s Manual" "Silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650! Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic." The Association for Advanced Colloid Research "Silver Colloids greatly assist in eliminating all known pathogens and guard against opportunistic infections. This ‘second immune system’ is synergistic…" Dr. Robert C. Beck, DSc., wrote in "Explore!" "Colloidal silver is very effective in treating periodontal disease (gum disease). My patients enjoy the clean fresh breath as colloidal silver immediately cleanses the mouth and destroys odor-causing bacteria. I would recommend that colloidal silver solutions be used after each dental procedure or surgery to eliminate infection and speed healing." S.R. Cobble, D.D.S. Obstetrics and Gynecology “The medicine department of obstetrics and gynecology at UCLA conducted tests in 1988 regarding the use of silver solutions as disinfectants. Anti-microbial and anti-bacterial effects were demonstrated in 10/5 concentrations per milliliter of the following: neisseria gonorrhea, gardurella vaginalisis, streptococcus pyogenes, staphylococcus aureus, candida albicans, candida eolobata, m. furfur, salmonella typhi.” Larry C. Ford, M.D., UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, November, 1, 1988. AIDS Study “Eight people recover from the AIDS virus in a scientifically documented study. An additional seven AIDS patients recover as verified by anecdotal reports”. Dr. M. Paul Farber, M.P. N.D., Ph.D., D.C. Author of the "Micro Silver Bullet TM" 4th Edition, November 1996 ISBN 1-87742-00 X Pages XIII & XVI. Lyme Disease “Borrelia burgdorferi and hermsti, organisms associated with causing the symptoms of Lyme Disease, were tested at the Department of Health and Human Services, Rocky Mountain Laboratories and Fox Chase Cancer Center, respectively, in 1995; in the Rocky Mountain Labs study, it was demonstrated that no live spirochetes of either borrellia burgdorferi [B310 orhermsti (HS-1)] survived after 24 hours of exposure to colloidal silver in concentrations of 15 ppm and 150 ppm.” Schuan, Tom, Ph.D., Burgdorfer, Willy Ph.D. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, Rocky Mountain Laboratories, January, 13, 1995. Cancer Research Research by Dr. Robert O. Becker, and others indicated that laboratory tests conducted reverted cancer cells back to normal (not kill them but return them to normal). Other observations made such as a correlation between silver deficiency and illness or proper immune system functioning, burns, soft tissue and bone repair acceleration, and the formation of cells that appear to be able to repair virtually any part of the body. Reduction of inflammation and the antibacterial, germicidal, astringent, antibiotic attributes so far observed are yet to be fully understood. The Body Electric, Dr. Robert O. Becker ISBN 0688069711 Quill, New York or William Morrow & Company The Environmental Protection Agency’s Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver; it is therefore considered harmless in any concentration. However, all of the silver salts are identified as toxic, although the only adverse effect noted is Argyria. Therefore the concern is with silver salts and compounds, not colloidal silver. C.E. A. MacLeod reports colloidal silver being used with marked success in the following cases: "Septic and follicular tonsillitis, Vincent’s angina, phlyctenular conjunctivitis, gonorrheal conjunctivitis, spring catarrh, impetigo (contagious acne of face and body), septic ulcer of legs, ringworm, soft sores, suppurative appendicitis after operation (the wounds cleaned rapidly), pustular eczema of scalp and pubes, chronic eczema of meatus of ear with recurrent boils, chronic suppuration in otitis media, and bromidrosis of feet. By injection: gonnorrhoea and chronic cystitis (local), boils, epididymitis." Lancet, Feb. 3, 1912 p. 83. "The germicidal action of certain metals in the colloidal state having been demonstrated, it only remained to apply them to the human subject, and this has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration, either orally or hypodermically, they have the advantage of being rapidly fatal to the parasites both bacterial and otherwise without any toxic action on the host. Colloidal silver solution is quite stable even in the presence of salts and the normal constituents of the blood. Its destructive action on toxins is very marked, so that it will protect rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanic (from tetanus) or diphtheric toxin." Searle, A. B. The Use of Colloids Health and Disease (Quoting from the British Medical Journal, May 12, 1917 p.83), E.P. Dutton & Company, New York, 1919, p.75 John Meredith, an experienced medical writer, has written a good article entitled: "The Rebellion of Germs Against Antibiotics". Mr. Meredith points out the dangers of the modern world for the easy spread of infections that antibiotics can do nothing about. He explains why drug companies hate natural remedies. They do not make available grant money to study what they feel that they cannot make money on. Mr. Meredith makes reference to a number of cases that colloidal silver has helped including "Gulf War Syndrome" and a number of common medical conditions. He makes reference to a Dr. Tipton who feels that it should be a daily mineral supplement. The article makes a point on why every household should keep colloidal silver on their shelves. It is great to protect children and the elderly. A reference is make about protection from food poisoning which is becoming more and more a serious public health issue.
  3. I recently spotted the following information in an internet article and found it to be both educational and interesting. Please check it out. El Matador Colloidal Silver is produced electronically and in extremely small particle sizes (nano particles), This is important because the smaller the particle size the more easily the colloidal silver can pass through various membranes in the body, including the blood-brain barrier. It is made with very high quality distilled water that I produce myself and filtered immediately after it is produced to remove any extraneous material that may be produced during the electrolysis process. Each batch is spot-tested with a strong laser to ensure that the colloidal silver shows the Tyndall Effect to prove the presence of silver colloids. I use brown glass bottles for the smaller size because it is the traditional color. But El Matador Colloidal Silver is so pure that it is not affected by normal levels of light and can be kept in any color bottle, including clear.. There is a fallacious belief that colloidal silver is affected by light and also that it can cause a condition known as Argyria in which the skin and nails can turn gray or blue. This can only happen with poor quality, contaminated colloidal silver such as may be made with tap water containing chlorine. Even colloidal silver made with crude electrical setups, such as with three nine-volt batteries, will not cause argyria if made with very pure distilled water. But such setups make silver colloids so large that they are not nearly as effective in one's body as nano-silver made with electronically controlled voltage and current. Every household should have El Matador Colloidal Silver on hand for illnesses, cuts, scrapes and particularly burns. Even better for burns, cuts and scrapes is El Matador Ouch-Aid Colloidal Silver Gel. It is made with a stronger concentration of colloidal silver especially for topical use and made into a gel so that it will stay where you put it. Some people very effectively take two teaspoons of El Matador Colloidal Silver every day as a way of keeping their immune systems strong and avoiding colds, flu and other infections. El Matador Colloidal Silver is available in 8-ounce bottles for $!5 and in 32-ounce bottles for $45 (a 25% saving). I usually have colloidal silver and other El Matador products available at the Tuesday market. You may also order in advance for Tuesday or arrange pickup at my house by sending email to usn11958@gmail.com You may also request a free Colloidal Silver User's Manual and other El Matador information. At the market I wander around wearing a white tee shirt with the red El Matador logo. Make an inexpensive investment in your health with El Matador.
  4. There's bad killin' and good killin' I am usually at the Tuesday Market every week, wearing a white Tee shirt with a red El Matador logo on the front and back. El Matador means “the killer.” There is a lady at the market who chastises me because she thinks “El Matador” implies evil in some way. If she will listen, I ask (as I now ask you), is it BAD to kill bacteria, viruses or fungi that do harm to your body? Is it BAD to kill arthritis, osteopenia or osteoporosis and their pain? Is it BAD to kill mold that grows on your shoes, caps, draperies, furniture, etc. and triggers your allergies or causes infections? Is is BAD to kill mold, food odors or cigarette smoke odors in your house or car? The brand name of my line of products is “El Matador” because each of them kills something that needs to be killed. If you want to do a little beneficial killin’, see me at the market and get some El Matador Colloidal Silver that will kill over 600 different bacteria, viruses and fungi. There’s also El Matador Ouch-Aid Colloidal Silver Gel for burns,cuts, scrapes and infections. Or get some El Matador Boron Supplement to prevent or treat arthritis, osteopenia or osteoporosis. If you have mold in your house, get a spray bottle of El Matador Mold Killer or rent the El Matador Ozone Generator to treat your whole house or apartment, even your car. I even have nitenpyram capsules that will kill the fleas on your dog or cat in thirty minutes and El Matador PupFresh between-bath spray for smelly dogs. It also repels fleas and ticks. For information about El Matador products and how to use them, send an email to usn11958@gmail.com with the subject “El Matador,” and I’ll send you several documents with important information. If you want to order El Matador products, send me an email to tell me what you want. I’ll have it at the Tuesday Market, or you can pick it up at my house. My address is usn11958@gmail.com I try to have a good selection of products with me each week, but ordering in advance will ensure that I bring what you want. Thanks from El Matador !
  5. A long and widespread electricity outage was scheduled for today, Thursday, 5 September, but it was canceled because of the very heavy rains on Wednesday evening. There is a strong possibility that the electrical outage will now occur on Friday and thus conflict with the Great Boquete Soup Fest, which will be at the Boulder 54 Restaurant on tomorrow, Friday, from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. DO NOT DESPAIR! You can still attend the Soup Fest, still park in the BCP parking lot and still pass through the gate to the restaurant. If necessary, there will be alternative arrangements for keeping the 22 or more soups hot for you. The bread, butter and cookies will not be affected! Please be there and help the Knitters & Quilters with their mission of providing cuddly warm things for some of Boquete's smallest and neediest little people.

Available in eight ounce bottles ($15), sixteen ounce bottles ($24) and quart bottles ($45) The USFDA will not allow medical claims about colloidal silver because it is untested, but they won't test it because it can't be patented. Go figure. Meanwhile, we know that it kills over 600 microorganisms---bacteria, viruses and fungi. Use for colds, flu, gastroenteritis (stomach flu), cuts, scrapes, fungal infections, etc. Two teaspoons daily will strengthen the immune system and prevent many infections. Useful for pets.

I usually have a selection of products in my car at the market on Tuesdays. Watch for me in my white tee shirt with the red El Matador logo. Bob Gregory E-mail: usn11958@gmail.com
  7. El Matador --- Prisoner of Bottle Availability I usually sell El Matador Colloidal Silver in 8-ounce bottles (sometimes 250 ml) for $15 and in quart or 1 liter bottles for $45. As Forrest Gump might say, “Bottle availability in Panama is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.” Right now I have only three 8-ounce bottles of colloidal silver available. However, I have a pretty good supply of 500 ml bottles (just over 16 ounces) I plan to fill some of those 500 ml bottles and see if people buy them. They will be a good deal because they are two times the size of the $15 bottles for a price of $25. I still have the one liter bottles for $45, which is an even better price per ounce. But not many people seem to want to buy the large size. In case you are wondering, the shelf life of colloidal silver is very long---almost infinite. You just want to be sure not to store it in a refrigerator or freezer or store it close to an electrical field from a microwave oven or something with a running motor. The reason for this is that extremely small particles of pure silver are constantly moving around in the pure distilled water. Each particle has a positive electrical charge so that they all continuously repel each other and remain in suspension. Cooling them down or taking away their charges in an electrical field will allow them to sink to the bottom of the bottle. That is your science lesson for today. I hope that the recent problem with gastroenteritis has subsided. If you should be unlucky enough to have it, two ounces of colloidal silver in six to eight ounces of water on two successive days should make you well. If any symptoms persist, continue to take two tablespoons of colloidal silver per day for two or three more days. I generally keep a stock of El Matador products in my car so that you can get some when you see me around Boquete or at the Tuesday market. Ask me for Colloidal Silver, Boron Supplement, Ouch-Aid Colloidal silver Gel, Mold Killer, Nitenpyram oral instant flea killer for dogs and cats and other El Matador products. At the Tuesday market I wear my white tee shirt with the red El Matador logo. If you would like information about El Matador products and how to use them, send an email to usn11958@gmail.com with the subject line “EL MATADOR.” Many people are using El Matador products for themselves and their pets with good success. Colloidal Silver kills over 600 microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses and fungi---even MRSA and C. Dificile. El Matador Boron Supplement prevents and treats arthritis and osteoporosis and will also treat intestinal Candida infections. El Matador Mold Killer will permanently kill mold on caps, hats, jackets, rugs, furniture, draperies, etc. And El Matador Ozone shock treatment will kill mold, cigarette smoke odors and cooking odors in your home or car. El Matador means “the killer,” and every El Matador product kills something you want to kill.
  8. As some of you know, a few months ago I was fortunate enough to find a source for Nitenpyram. Nitenpyram is an FDA-approved oral medication for dogs and cats which kills adult fleas within 30 to 45 minutes. To take care of young fleas, eggs and larvae, you can continue to give one capsule per day for a few days or wait two or three days and then give one capsule per day for a couple or three days more. You should treat all dogs and cats in the household at one time so that they don't pass fleas back and forth among themselves. Nitenpyram has no bad side effects, but can increase itching and scratching for a day or two. This does not happen in all pets. I still have some capsules remaining from my initial supply, but I know that with my own dog and requests from others, they may not last a lot longer. Today I stopped into a pet store to check to see what is available there. There were a couple of brands of oral flea medicines. For small dogs and cats, a one month supply costs $21. For larger dogs, the price is $28. Another brand was $40. These prices are for a one-month supply. That sent me looking for a new source for Nitenpyram. The good news is that I did find a good source. The most common price for Nitenpyram capsules is $3.00 each in packages of six for $18. I have been selling Nitenpyram capsules for larger dogs for $1.00 each With the new source, I'll be able to continue selling it for $1.00 for quantities up to nineteen, but for twenty or more capsules, I can cut the price in half to fifty cents each. (Pretty much a no-brainer, no?) By the way, these capsules are for dogs from 25 to 125 pounds. For smaller dogs and for cats, you can snip the capsules into halves and sprinkle the medicine on food or in an ounce or two of milk. That is a much less expensive way than to try to find lower dosages that will cost more. I plan to place an order very soon so as not to take the risk that the source will dry up. The reason for this notice is to determine the level of interest so that I know how much to order. Also, I DO have some capsules available now for $1.00 each. That is a very good price---only 1/3 of normal---so don't keep your pet waiting if you need to get rid of fleas. The new order will probably take two or three weeks. Oh, yes, the expiration date for the new capsules is some time in 2021 (and they are actually good beyond the expiration date) My principle with El Matador is to solve problems I need to solve for myself and then figure that other people probably have similar problems. I make, or, in this case, find problem-solving products and make them available at very reasonable prices. You can either pre-order a quantity of Nitenpyram capsules (from one up to any number) or just tell me that you anticipate using them from time to time to help keep your pet(s) free of fleas. Ordering will give me a better idea of how much to order, but I don't want to require you to commit. Of course, I'll give priority to delivering all pre-orders. If you want to order a specific quantity or tell me that you plan to get some capsules from time to time for your pet, please send an email to usn11958@gmail.com. Use a subject of FLEAS. I'll reply with some additional information about Nitenpyram and also include several documents with information about El Matador Colloidal Silver, OuchAid Colloidal Silver Gel and Boron Supplement, all of which are great for pets and people too. I have not tried El Matador Pup-Fresh on people,.but it does keep your dog smelling nice between baths. Please respond as soon as possible so that I can place my order If you need some Nitenpyram soon, I do have some available. I try to keep some in my vehicle and can often deliver it when you see me around town and virtually always at the Tuesday Market. You can spot me at the market wearing a white tee shirt with the red El Matador logo. Thanks, Bob Gregory

  10. Special Pet Edition To many of us, keeping our pets healthy and well taken care of has a very high priority. And just as with humans, maintaining good health and dealing with problems quickly is important. Let's review some El Matador products that can contribute to health maintenance be used to treat various problems. Colloidal Silver Colloidal silver kills bacteria, viruses and fungi. It can be used externally on cuts, scrapes and infections. It can be given internally for intestinal, respiratory and other infections. The dosage amount for internal treatment is approximately proportional to weight. Here is a list for guidance: 150 lbs – 2 ounces for two days, then 2 tablespoons for 2 days 75 lbs – 1 ounce for two days, then 1 tablespoon for 2 days 40 lbs – 1 tablespoon for two days, then 2 teaspoons for 2 days 20 lbs -- 2 teaspoons for two days, then 1 teaspoon for 2 days 10 lbs – 1 teaspoon for two days, then ½ teaspoon for 2 days 5 lbs – ½ teaspoon for two days, then ¼ teaspoon for 2 days The best way to administer the colloidal silver is to put the dose into a small amount of milk in a shallow bowl and allow the pet to drink it all at one time. If you would like information about using colloidal silver for both pets and people, send an email to usn11958@gmail.com with the subject “El Matador Pets” El Matador Colloidal Silver is available in 8 ounce bottles for $15 and one quart bottles for $45. Boron Supplement Boron supplement has multiple uses. The main application is to prevent and treat arthritis and osteoporosis. It is sad to see a pet with arthritis. It is best to prevent it, but if your pet already has arthritis, it can be treated with boron supplement. Dosage for prevention is one teaspoon for each 50 pounds of pet weight. Treatment dosage is one teaspoon for each 25 pounds of pet weight. The supplement can be added to the pet's water dish if you are confident that it will all be drunk. Otherwise put it in shallow bowl with a small amount of milk. By the way, human dosage is 3 teaspoons per day for prevention and 6 teaspoons per day for treatment. Boron supplement can also be used for treating internal candida (yeast) infections. Use a dosage of four times the treatment dosage for five days. Boron supplement is also good for balancing hormones in both male and female humans. I don't know how to tell if pets need such treatment. A one quart bottle of El Matador Boron Supplement costs $12. It will last for one to two months for humans and longer for most pets. Pup Fresh PUP FRESH is a product from El Matador that both you and your canine friend will appreciate. Many veterinarians advise that it is not good to bathe dogs too frequently because of the risk of drying out and irritating their skin. Of course if they roll in mud or something worse, it has to be done. One veterinarian site states: Bathing your dog once per week or more frequently is wrong. If you bathe your dog more frequently than recommended, the dog may develop problems such as:  Excessive dryness of skin, due to the fact that the skin cannot produce essential oils at a more frequent rate  The coat will get dull, due to the lack of essential oils  The skin will be more prone to infections, because the essential oils also have a protective role. Dogs with long hair need somewhat more frequent baths because they can, and usually do, collect more dirt. Even some dogs with short hair produce more skin oils than others and need more frequent bathing. But, in general, bathing should not be more frequent than every three or four weeks. So what does PUP FRESH have to do with all this? PUP FRESH is a spray-on solution that keeps your dog looking good, smelling clean and repelling fleas and ticks between baths. If your dog has long hair, you can back comb it as you spray on PUP FRESH so that it reaches the skin better and then brush or comb normally. For short-haired dogs you only need to apply the spray from a fairly close distance and allow it to penetrate to the skin. No rinsing or drying is necessary. After spraying with PUP FRESH, the doggy odor is replaced by a pleasant aroma, while the active ingredients do the job of killing germs and repelling fleas. PUP FRESH comes in a high quality 24 ounce spray bottle---enough to last a good while even if you have a Great Dane. PRICE? It's a bit higher than I would like but a LOT less than commercial dog sprays you can find on Amazon.com or at Wal-Mart. One of my ingredients costs about $12 per ounce. A 24 ounce spray bottle of PUP FRESH costs $8.00. For comparison, a 10 ounce bottle of a similar spray by Burt's Bees costs $7.96 plus shipping to Miami, plus shipping to Boquete. That's only about 42% as much as you get with El Matador PUP FRESH. To order, send an email to me at usn11958@gmail.com or call me at 6745-2828. I can usually deliver on Tuesday mornings at the market, or we can make other arrangements on a case by case basis. If you have not ordered in advance, call me while you are at the market. I try to keep extra products in my car if they are available. WARNING! Do not use PUP FRESH on cats or allow cats near it. For a list of all currently available El Matador products, send an email to usn11958@gmail.com and request a product information and price sheet.
  11. Bonnie: Thanks for the thorough summary. Other than just directives (which I assume must have been from MBE), did Velkys have any copies of actual government orders or regulations? Based on just the August 1 comunicado, I am fully confident that it addresses only the subject of cosmetics. I also know that health supplements are not mentioned in the sections of the law quoted in the comunicado. As for alternative inquiries, maybe our diputada could ask for clarification. A non-warden could handle something like that to keep you from being involved. 'Any idea how any of this relates to the Free Trade Agreement? It was alleged to have the effect of removing tariffs from around 87% of imports from the US within a couple of years of its signing in October 2012. The official US government site, Export.gov, says this: Tariffs have dropped to 0% for 87% of U.S. Exports to Panama. Panama’s tariffs are already relatively low – an average of 7% for industrial goods, around 15% for agricultural products regardless of where the products are made. But a 0% percent tariff is a competitive advantage for U.S.-made goods. And U.S. products and services are already very competitive, with some 30% market share of Panama’s imports. Are we so unlucky as to bring in a lot of stuff that falls into the 13% that has import tariffs or other restrictions? Do you think the embassy could explain this oddity?
  12. After receiving three written requests from you, has the embassy not even replied at all? Do you think a phone call might help? Perhaps someone who is not a warden can obtain some answers as to why such a clearly stated comuncado is being misadministered, if that is indeed the case. The comunicado has only one operative sentence, and that is the one prohibiting importation of cosmetics for personal use. Apparently that is the only change being made by this comunicado to the way things have been working. Even the opening sentence of the comunicado states that it relates to repeated requests to bring cosmetic products into the country. How did the subject of the law (or regulation) about prescription drugs come up back in June? The comunicado related to this thread is dated August 1, 2017. Have there been other comunicados on the subject? If not, what seems to be the basis for any change in delivery of medicines or supplements? I see no mention of supplements in the quoted law sections. The usual term for them is "suplementos de salud." "Medicamentos" does not have the same meaning. If there has been no other comunicado in this subject area, then what triggered any recent changes in the administration of the requirerments for importing medicines for personal use, and what accounts for any changes in regulations for importing supplements? The TeleMetro artice recenty posted by Keith Woolford also has no mention of supplements. " A statement by the Ministry of Health pointed out that all cosmetic products, medicated cosmetics, cleaning products, personal hygiene, disinfectants, or antiseptics that enter the country under the category of "personal use", must be provided with Sanitary Registration for import, distribution and marketing in Panama." For several months there has been a flat $2.00 additional customs charge for supplements. ------------------------------------ For Bud. I cannot explain what happened, but I wrote the post, made changes to the font size, attached a small file with an image of the last two paragraphs of the comunicado, checked that it showed up and clicked the button at the bottom that said "Submit Reply." I received no error message of any kind and assumed that the post had been made. My only confusion is about why it didn't work. I know what I did and on which forum I did it. I made a separate, additional post to a differernt forum, and some of the wording was not the same. .
  13. I made a post to this topic yesterday evening, and it seemed to work okay, but today it is not present on the thread. Here is another try: I just learned of this today and did something really radical. I read the Spanish language order (Comunicado) dated August 1, 2017. This appears to be sort of a tempest in a teapot. Whether it was caused by misreading of the Comunicado by government employees, by mail order clients or both is not clear. The Comunicado, as written, applies ONlY to cosmetics. Here is a translation of the operative statement in the Comunicado and the antecedent paragraph. As we see the standard, it refers to the requirement and to the cases of Exceptions to the sanitary registry. However, the current norm of exceptions to sanitary registry for cosmetics is not contemplated. In consequence, from this date, entrance into the country of cosmetic products for personal use is prohibited. (bold in original) The Spanish language excerpt from the Comunicado is attached. There is no mention in the Comunicado order of prohibition of prescription drugs nor of vitamins and supplements. The law, itself, is only quoted to provide context and authority for the Comunicado. But the purpose of the Comunicado is to single out cosmetics in the law and state that they are no longer allowed to be normal exceptions to the law. It could be that there are some super gung-ho customs agents misinterpreting the order, or it may be that there is a rush for people to get their panties in a wad over something that will not be a problem. I think a helpful embassy official or a helpful Panamanian government official should be able to straighten it out. Embassy Warden Hank Landis is fluent in Spanish andvery familiar with Panamanian law and probably could handle this efficiently.
