THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE ANTIBIOTIC KNOWN TO SCIENCE
What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is a pure, all natural substance consisting of pure water and
submicroscopic clusters of pure metallic silver. Colloidal silver is manufactured
by a non-chemical process where the microscopic particles of silver are held
in suspension by an electrical charge placed on each particle.
What Does Colloidal Silver Do?
Colloidal silver is a germicide. While most antibiotics are effective against
about a half-dozen disease causing organisms (germs, bacteria, fungi, parasites
and some viruses), silver is effective against over 650 organisms. Colloidal
silver is tasteless, non-toxic to living tissue and can be taken orally or applied
Is Colloidal Silver Safe to Take?
The Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity
listing for colloidal silver and considers it harmless in any concentration.
Colloidal silver is the safest and best all around natural antibiotic germ fighter.
What Is Colloidal Silver Effective Against?
Colloidal silver has been proven effective against all species of fungi, bacteria,
protozoa, parasites and certain viruses and is non-toxic. Based on laboratory
tests, destructive bacteria, virus and fungus organisms are killed within minutes
What Is a Colloid?
A colloid is a substance that consists of ultra-fine particles that do not dissolve,
but remain in suspension. These ultra-fine particles are larger than most molecules,
but so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. In a true colloid of silver,
the ideal size of the silver particles falls within the range of 0.005 - 0.015
microns in diameter. These particles are electrically charged to activate the
germicidal quality of the silver and allow the silver particles to remain suspended
Does Particle Size Matter?
Particle size is a crucial factor. Much of the efficiency of the colloidal solution
depends on the actual size and uniformity of silver particles. Particles that
are too large are less effective. The preferred particle size for optimum results
and safety of use should be from 0.005 - 0.015 microns in diameter.
What About the Color Of The Final Product?
An excellent indicator of the quality of colloidal silver is the color. As the
size of each silver particle gets larger, the color of the solution ranges from
clear to yellow to red to brown to gray and black. Colloids of silver that are
produced using the proper electrolysis method are a different color than the
grind or chemically produced colloids, except in the case of some products that
contain artificial food coloring to get the right color. The ideal form of colloidal
silver is a clear to light yellow color, which in part has to do with using
ozonated water in its production. It has been reported that using ozonated water
will produce the smallest silver particles.
Are Higher Parts Per Million Like 500
PPM More Beneficial?
In the range of 3 - 20 ppm (parts per million), colloidal silver has little
effect on "friendly" bacteria, while being highly useful against infections
and eliminating various microbes, viruses and fungi. Colloidal silver that is
too concentrated may upset the delicate balance of the digestive tract by destroying
significant amounts of friendly bacteria. It may also be toxic due to larger
particles which clump together.
What Are Some Uses For Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is tasteless, odorless, non-stinging and non-burning
to sensitive tissues - - even a baby's eyes. It may be taken orally, applied
directly to cuts, scrapes, open sores, warts or used as a rinse for acne, eczema
and other skin irritations. It may be gargled, dropped into eyes or ears, used
vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs.
The number of disease organisms presently identified that colloid of silver
is effective is now over 650. Some people wonder why the FDA would allow such
a powerful antibiotic to be sold over the counter without a prescription. There
are two reasons: The first is that true colloidal silver is a Pre-1938 drug
(by over fifty years), proven non-toxic, and is therefore "grandfather". The
second reason is that the FDA has no jurisdiction over a pure mineral element.
Since it kills disease causing bacteria, fungi and viruses within a few minutes
of contact, but leaves unharmed the "friendly" bacteria, many people take it
internally daily as an immune system boost.
How Does Silver Naturally Get Into The
We get silver and all minerals into the body through the food we eat. It gets
into our food through living soil where living organisms in healthy soil, of
which there are billions in a handful of dirt, break down the soil so plants
can assimilate the minerals. Plants convert raw minerals to colloidal form.
When we eat the plants, our bodies utilize the colloidal minerals gathered by
the plants. These minerals enter the blood stream and are taken to the various
organs of our body. Hence, we get silver from plants. If digestion and assimilation
are weak, or as the tissues age, we may develop a silver deficiency, and thus
an impaired immune system and ultimately, cancer. Many of our soils have been
stripped of trace minerals through poor agricultural practices which also cause
deficiencies and subsequent health problems.
Does Colloidal Silver Have Any Effect
on Cancer Cells?
Dr. Gary Smith (a pioneer in cancer research) in an unpublished article writes
that: Success depends on the amount of silver in the person's body and problems
result from the lack of silver in the body. When silver was present, the cancer
cells stopped their development and the body is basically restored. When silver
levels are low or not-existent, the cancer growth continues to grow because
the cells cannot reverse themselves.
Does Colloidal Silver Help in the Fight
In active AIDS, the suppressed immune system of the body is open to all kinds
of diseases, colloidal silver is the perfect non-toxic drug to use for its wide
spectrum antibiotic effect. A researcher at Brigham Young University sent colloidal
silver to two different labs including UCLA Medical Center, which said, "It
killed not only the HIV Virus (in vitro), but every virus that was tested in
the lab." According to the FDA rules, colloidal silver cannot be used for treating
the HIV Virus, but it could be used as an antibiotic for all the acquired diseases
of active AIDS.
How Much Colloidal Silver Should a Person
Take Per Day?
When you first start to use colloidal silver, most adults take one or two tablespoons
two to three times a day for four to seven days, then as a supplement cut down
to about one or two tablespoon a day. (Personally, I leave the bottle on the
bathroom counter. I then will take the colloidal silver and swish it around
in my mouth for 30 seconds after I brush my teeth in the mornings and evenings.)
Children or babies would use a proportionally smaller dose. Optimum dose may
require more or less colloidal silver.
Are There Any Known Side Effects From
Using Colloidal Silver?
There are no recorded side effects in the medical literature from the use of
colloidal silver. Additionally, there has never been a recorded case of a drug
interaction. It is non-addicting, the body does not build up a tolerance to
it, and studies show that colloidal silver is not deposited under the skin like
other silver compounds that may cause gray or bluish skin. It is tasteless,
odorless, nontoxic, non-stinging to the eyes, safe for pregnant and lactating
If It's So Great, Why Have I Never Heard
of Colloidal Silver Before?
Seventy years ago, colloidal silver was widely used. Colloidal silver retailed
at about $100.00 per ounce in the 1930's. Recent technology has brought the
price down so that colloidal silver can now compete in the medical marketplace.
Numerous articles in medical journals of colloidal silver can be found dating
usually before 1940. New articles and data will soon be appearing as more doctors
rediscover this safe and effective solution. For many years there was a law
that required hospitals to use a silver solution in the eyes of newborn babies
to ensure that they would not go blind if the mother happened to have gonorrhea.
The silver compound used was black and ugly, but you could make no mistake that
the baby was treated because they would have the tell-tale black eyes for days.
Since the solution was inexpensive and absolutely effective against nearly
all pathogens, the pharmaceutical companies could make no money. They lobbied
for and were successful in substituting their narrow band antibiotics. The "antiquated"
silver solutions were quietly shelved in favor of modern narrow band or selective
antibiotics. Now the doctor would prescribe an antibiotic designed to kill a
specific microbe. If it didn't work, or you got another type of microbe, then
he would prescribe another antibiotic. Since there was no money to be made from
the inexpensive colloidal silver that killed virtually all of the pathogenic
microbes, it was no longer promoted by the pharmaceutical companies, no longer
taught in the medical schools and no longer available through standard medical
Do I Still Need to Visit My Family Doctor
If I Use Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is a great product, but your health is important. When the
situation calls for it, visit your health professional.
Is Silver a Mineral?
No, regardless of its particle size, silver is a metal, unless chemically combined
with other elements such as sulfur, oxygen, nitrogen, etc.
