About COLLOIDAL SILVER
Colloidal silver appears to be a powerful natural antibiotic and preventative against infections. Acting as a catalyst it reportedly disables the enzyme that single-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. They suffocate without corresponding harm occurring to enzymes or parts of the human body chemistry. Colloidal silver was in common use until 1938. In America many remember their grandparents putting silver dollars in milk to prolong its freshness at room temperature.
What is Colloidal silver?
Colloidal silver can be defined as a suspension of ultra-fine silver particles in a colloidal base. True colloidal silver products are the least prevalent type of colloidal silver on the market due to the high cost of production. In true colloidal silver, the majority of the silver content is in the form of silver particles. True colloids will typically contain between 50 to 80 percent particles, while the balance will be silver ions. True silver colloids are never clear like water. True colloidal silver with a sufficient concentration of particles does not look like water because silver particles - even very small particles - block light from passing through making the liquid appear darker.
History of silver and colloidal silver:
Silver has been used for medicinal purposes as far back in recorded time as 4000 B.C. Eastern Persian records specifically mention the practice of placing water in silver vessels; the ancient Babylonian and Greek civilizations were also fully aware of silver's anti-biotic properties.
In the 1880’s the process of using silver in medicine was refined when colloidal silver was first created, it was discovered that it’s smaller silver particles provided a much safer and more effective alternative to the more basic silver medicines prior to its discovery.
At the turn of the century scientists had discovered that the body's most important fluids are colloidal in nature; suspended ultra-fine particles. Blood for example, carries nutrition and oxygen to the body cells in this form. Prior to 1938, colloidal silver was used by physicians as a mainstream antibiotic treatment and was considered quite "high-tech," production methods however were costly. The pharmaceutical industry moved in causing colloidal research to be set aside in favour of fast working, more toxic and potentially dangerous drugs. The Food and Drug Administration today classifies colloidal silver as a pre 1938 drug. These products may continue to be marketed as long as they are advertised and labeled for the same use as in 1938 and as long as they are manufactured in the original manner. Some of the manufacturing methods used before 1938 are still used today with an electro-colloidal process, which is known to be the best method.
While studying regeneration of limbs and spinal cords in the late 1970s, Robert Becker, M.D., author of ‘The Body Electric’ discovered that silver ions promote bone growth and kill surrounding bacteria. The March 1978 issue of Science Digest in an article, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," reported: "Thanks to eye-opening research, 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 article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher who worked with the late Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University's Department of Surgery in the 197Os: "Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have." How colloidal silver is made:
Through the process of electrolysis the silver is reduced to its smallest possible particle, achieved by the silver losing an electron. This smaller particle allows for safer more frequent consumption of colloidal silver thereby beating the silver rich predecessor which could lead to cases of Argyria if consumed too frequently.
The uses of colloidal silver:
It can be used on cuts - reduces scarring and acts as an anti-bacterial spray that will not sting or burn. Viruses/ Bacteria/Fungus - can be used to combat viruses, bacteria in or on the body when ingested or applied topically. Colloidal silver can also diminish fungal infections associated with candida, eczema, acne and psoriasis.
Preventative- Dr R Becker found that low silver levels lead to frequent illness. He concluded that silver is a critical factor in the strengthening of the immune system and destruction of bacteria and virus’. As an aside, Royalty world-wide, have been called ‘Blue Bloods’, because of the silver content in their blood, even from birth. They used real silverware, ate from silver dishes, and stored their food in silver containers. Before medicine as we know it the Royals were noted for not catching the same diseases as the common people who had no access to silver. Back to Dr Becker… "What we have done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, a fact which had actually been known for centuries. All of the organisms we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics. In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.”
It is impossible for single-celled germs to mutate into silver-resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver ever develops. Also colloidal silver cannot interact or interfere with other medicine being taken. Inside the body, silver forms no toxic compounds nor reacts with anything other than a pathogens oxygen-metabolising enzyme.
Why it is so effective and how it works:
The reason that colloidal silver is so effective is because of its colloidal state, this allows for incredibly fast absorption into the body this means that unlike the majority of pharmaceutical drugs which are ingested in their solid form, the virus/ bacteria/ fungus doesn’t have enough time to mutate and build up a resistance against the colloidal silver. It is impossible for single-celled organisms to mutate into silver-resistant forms as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver ever develops. Also, colloidal silver cannot interact or interfere with other medicine being taken. Inside the body silver forms no toxic compounds nor reacts with anything other than a pathogens oxygen - metabolising enzyme. The presence of colloidal silver near a virus fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme - its chemical lung - causing it to suffocate and eventually die just 6 minutes after the colloidal silver enters the body. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune and lymphatic systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial enzymes and if taken orally kill friendly gut flora, colloidal silver has no such effect and it also leaves the tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for all mammals (including humans), reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter. In fact we believe that colloidal silver is a particularly safe natural remedy for many of mankind's health challenges.
