Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver is a powerful, natural substance that can be used for all sorts of conditions.  In fact, it is one of the strongest natural antibiotics known to man.  Read on to find out more.

What are Colloids?

Colloids are the smallest biological form of any matter.  They are small enough to pass through membranes and thus they skip past the digestive process and are easily absorbed by the body.

The Benefits of Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver has many benefits.  It supports the natural defense system of the body and is powerfully alkaline.  Colloidal silver is made when an electromagnetic process pulls tiny particles of silver from a larger sample of pure silver into (usually distilled) water.  The tiny electrical charge on each atom holds these silver particles in suspension.  This is vital for its effectiveness as it allows the particles to move more easily throughout the body.

 

Colloidal silver is also a powerful, natural antibiotic.  It works by acting as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that single celled bacteria, fungi and viruses need in order to metabolise oxygen.  This suffocates the harmful cell while not harming human enzymes, resulting in the removal of disease-causing organisms from the body.  It also works through the negative charge on the silver binding with the positive charge on the pathogen.  This causes an interruption of the pathogen’s biological function, which means it is then unable to reproduce.  Various studies have reported that over 650 microorganisms can be killed by colloidal silver.  This does not mean that it can cure disease however.  Nonetheless, it is helpful against acne, allergies, arthritis, athlete’s foot, boils, burns, candida, cystitis, diabetes, eczema, hay fever, indigestion, parasitic infections, psoriasis, ringworm, warts, and yeast infections.

How to Use Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver can be used orally or topically.  Orally, it placed directly under the tongue or put into water and then drunk.  It is recommended that the each dose is held in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing.  This allows the silver ions and particles to be absorbed through the skin beneath the tongue.  Topically, it is used by spraying it onto cuts, burns, skin infections, and acne.  It can be used as an eye wash, as nose drops, or as ear drops.

Potential Side Effects of Colloidal Silver

Argyria is a condition of excess silver in the body that leads to blue-gray hyper pigmentation.  Colloidal silver is thought to cause this condition when taken in excess but it is silver nitrate and silver sulfide that can cause the condition.  There are actually no known side effects to using colloidal silver.
