The number of disease organisms presently identified that colloidal of silver is effective against is now over 650!
How It Works
Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body's cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing ensures fast absorption. In three to four days the silver will have accumulated in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin. Colloidal size silver particles easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. They act as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one-celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for oxygen metabolism, "its chemical lung." Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves normal tissue cell enzymes intact because tissue cells have radically different enzymes than the primitive single-celled life. Thus, colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, animals and plants.
Colloidal Silver vs. Antibiotics
Pathogens can and do develop resistance to antibiotics, but they don't have the capacity to develop resistance to colloidal silver. Antibiotics are only effective against a few specific forms of bacteria and fungi and are not effective against viruses. Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease causing pathogens, including many viruses. No known disease causing organism can live in the presence of minute traces of metallic silver. Colloidal silver is virtually nontoxic, making it safe for both children and adults, as well as pets. Antibiotics are becoming even less effective as resistant strains grow. The Los Angeles Times states, "� in the last decade, a broad resistance to antibiotics has begun to emerge. And because bacteria can transfer genes among themselves, experts only expect the resistance to grow. The potential nightmare is an Andromeda strain, immune to all antibiotics that could wreak havoc." (Arsenal of Antibiotics Failing as Resistant Bacteria Develop, October 23, 1994). Interest in colloidal silver has increased rapidly as pharmaceutical antibiotics fail to protect us.
Colloidal Silver Strengthens the Immune System
Unlike antibiotics, colloidal silver does not weaken the body's immune system. In fact, it does the opposite. It boosts the immune system against diseases of all kinds. Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, has used silver in his cancer cure method for many years. He states in Silver, Our Mightiest Germ Fighter, the whole thing is quite simple, and brings rapid remission in patients given up by other doctors. (Science Digest March 1978) Colloidal silver has proven particularly effective in cases of intestinal troubles. Dr. Henry Crooks found that silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely nontoxic. All fungus, virus, bacteria, streptococcus, staphylococcus, and other pathogenic organisms are killed in three or four minutes. In fact there is no microbe known that is not killed by colloidal silver in six minutes or less, in a dilution of as little as five parts per million. Colloidal Silver is the best all around germ fighter we have. Doctors are reporting that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera, malaria, diabetes and severe burns. (Bio/Tech News, 1995) Colloidal silver is a safe and reliable option for people who are looking for alternative medicines. However, consuming large amount of silver colloid over long periods of time may kill some friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. Anyone taking large amounts may want to supplement with yogurt or acidophilus to restore these friendly bacteria.
How To Use Colloidal Silver
When used as an antibiotic, adults and children twelve and older, take two, three or four tablespoons by mouth three times a day. Younger children can take half this amount. It is tasteless, odorless and non-irritating to sensitive tissues such as the eyes, so it can also be used like a first aid spray on cuts, sores, burns, insect bites, etc. Apply topically to cuts and scrapes using a sprayer. Spraying it in the mouth allows the silver to be absorbed sublingually (under the tongue), getting it into the system sooner, and also bypasses the intestinal flora. A good quality colloidal silver can be diluted as much as 8 to 1 and still be highly effective. Colloidal silver on the market in many health food stores today often sells for as much as $10 per ounce, and may contain as low as one part per million of silver.
Do you have an antibiotic in your home Emergency Preparedness Kit? How about a way to purify contaminated water?
Apply directly to cuts, scrapes, or open sores. Put a few drops on a Band-Aid and wear over warts. Dab directly on eczema or itchy areas, or acne, mosquito bites, or any skin problem. Water is purified by adding one half teaspoon per gallon, shake well, wait six minutes, shake again, wait six minutes and drink. No home emergency preparedness kit would be complete without a method of making water safe to drink. This purified water makes a great digestive aid because it eliminates fermentation. It is the ideal food preservative because it is also good for you. An example of using it to help preserve food is to put about � teaspoon in a quart when canning.
