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
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.
