Report on Colloidal Silver
Silver is a powerful, natural prophylactic/antibiotic, used for thousands of years, with no side effects. It is a catalyst, disabling the particular enzyme that all one-celled bacteria, fungus and virus, use for their oxygen metabolism, they suffocate. Yet it is of no harm to human enzymes or any part of the human body chemistry. And it kills all disease-causing organisms, in six minutes or less, upon contact, even those pleomorphic, no matter how they mutate. Resistant strains fail to develop, and the body doesn't develop a tolerance. Colloidal Silver is both a remedy and a prevention of infections of any kind. Having sufficient Colloidal Silver in your body is to have a superior, second immune system. It was in common use until 1938. Great Grandma put a silver dollar in the milk, to keep it fresh at room temperature. (Ref-1,9)
Oral Formula (4-oz. bottle): After taking one teaspoon daily for four days take one half-teaspoon daily, as adults, (and proportional, by body weight, for children), or apply directly to cuts, scrapes and open sores, or put a few drops on a small Band-Aid and wear over warts, cuts, abrasions, or any open sore, or dab directly onto eczema or such 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, and shake again, wait six minutes, and drink. Mix it this way, it's tasteless, and drink two quarts, over a day's time, especially with meals, as a great digestive aid, because it eliminates fermentation. It is the ideal food preservative, because it is also good for you. Use in canning at one-quarter teaspoon per quart. Those already using Colloidal Silver report that they catch milder, and fewer if any, colds or flu. The emphasis is on the prevention of all infections. There are never any side effects. It never does any harm to the liver, kidneys, any other organ, system or any part of the body. No-one has ever overdosed, regardless of the amount, as it is not at all an allopathic poison. The Intravenous Formula, (1/2 oz. bottle/adult, proportional), is often preferred as it is more long lasting and for some people, works better. Syringes are available from veterinary suppliers, like IFA. (Ref-1,7,9,11,12,d)
The following is a partial list of the more than 650 diseases that Colloidal Silver has been used successfully against: acne, acne rosacea, AIDS (Ref-2), allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, athlete's foot, tuberculosis, bladder inflammation, blood parasites (cause gray hair), blood poisoning, boils, bubonic plague, burns, cancer (Ref-7,8), candida , chilblains, cholera, colitis , conjunctivitis, cystitis, diabetes (Ref-1), dysentery, eczema, fibrositis, gastritis, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, impetigo, indigestion, keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, neurasthenia, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, pleurisy, prostate, pruritus ani, psoriasis, purulent ophthalmia, rhinitis, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, seborrhea, septicemia, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, thyroid, tonsillitis, toxemia, trachoma, trenchfoot, dermatitis, all forms of virus, warts, whooping cough, yeast infection , stomach ulcer, and also canine parvovirus and other veterinary uses. Also in all bacterial, fungal and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted Silver on the leaves and add to soil water. (Ref-1,2,3,4,7,8,11,12).
There has never been a drug interaction with any other medication. Colloidal Silver has been found to be both a remedy and a prevention for all colds, all flu, all infections and all fermentation due to any bacteria, fungus or virus, especially staph and strep, which are found present in every disease condition. Through simple high school biology studies we learn that all living things exist in the colloidal form. The body can more readily use medications already in the colloidal form, as opposed to crystalline. Colloidal Silver is the most useable form of the most effective disease fighter there is. The body actually needs Colloidal Silver to fight disease-causing organisms, and to aid healing. The adult RDA for Silver is 400 milligrams. Taken orally each day, it's like having a second immune system. Older folks feel younger because their body energies are used for something other than fighting disease, and digestion is better. Medical research has proven that Silver promotes rapid healing, with less scar tissue, even in the case of severe burns. Silver aids the developing fetus in growth, health, and eases the delivery and recovery. Fantastic successes have been reported in many cases previously given up by establishment doctors. Colloidal Silver is tasteless and won't sting, even Baby's eyes and won't upset the stomach.
It is produced today by a modernized original process, at a tiny fraction of the pre-1938 cost, and is more concentrated. Contains no free radicals, as the Silver acts only as a catalyst, and is stabilized. This is not a chemical compound containing Silver, but pure metallic silver of submicroscopic clusters of just a few atoms, held in suspension, in pure water, by the tiny electric charge on each atom. It is absolutely non-toxic, (except to one-celled plants and animals), and non-addicting. Colloidal Silver is the remedy for all infections, even the non-apparent, low-grade general body infections most people have. Parasites are also killed, as they have an egg-stage in their reproductive cycle, which is one-celled and therefore killed in six minutes or less). Keep from freezing, and in a cool, dark place. (Ref-1,2,9,12)
- Use of Colloids in Health and Disease. Colloidal Silver is 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 non-toxic. Rather than in a chemical compounds the Silver, in the Colloidal state, may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with correspondingly better results. All fungus, virus, bacterium, 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, at a dilution of as little as 5 parts per million, though there are no side effects whatsoever from high concentrations.
- Provo Herald 13 Feb. 92, pg.D1: Colloidal Silver as a cure for AIDS.
- American Drug Index, section on Inorganic Pharmaceutical Chemistry, recognized Silver for its germicidal action, calling a stabilized form: Mild Silver Protein. There are several forms of Mild silver Protein.
- The Condensed Chemical Dictionary 6th Edition: Mild Silver Protein is listed for medical use, (the "Protein" is the trace used as a stabilizer).
- The FDA has stated that because Colloidal Silver is (by fifty years) a pre-1938 drug, it may continue to be marketed. A 13 Sept. 1991, letter received from consumer safety officer, Harold Davis, U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Moreover, the FDA has no jurisdiction regarding a pure, mineral element.
- Environmental Protection Agency's Poison control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver, considering it harmless in any concentration.
- Dr. Robert Becker The Body Electric, recognized a correlation between low Silver levels and sickness. He said the Silver deficiency was responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system. Dr.Becker's experiments conclude that Silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or damage to any cells of the body, (being tissue and not single cells). He also states that the Silver was doing something more than killing disease-causing organisms. It was also causing major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and even elderly patients noticed more rapid healing. And he discovered that all cancer cells change back to normal cells. All strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are killed by Silver. Yet at that time he couldn't find a Silver supplement on the market.
- Dr.Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used Silver in his cancer cure method, for many years. He says the whole thing is quite simple. This brought rapid remission in patients given up by other doctors.
- Silver Our Mightiest Germ Fighter Science Digest March 1978. As an antibiotic, Silver kills over 650 disease-causing organisms; resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is absolutely non-toxic. Silver is the best all around germ-fighter we have. Doctors are reporting that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera and malaria, diabetes and severe burns. Richard L. Davies, executive director of the Silver Institute, which monitors Silver technology in 37 countries, reports: "In four years we've described 87 important new medical uses for Silver."
- Colloidal Preparations of Silver in Pharmacy British Medical Journal, Feb 1923 , Pure silver is entirely non-irritant. In tests, at very high dilution rates, exceeding two-hundred to one, it has been shown repeatedly that the rapidly exerted disinfectant action is of considerable therapeutic value.
A very important note: There are some manufacturers who have come out with a Colloidal Silver product of greater concentration in an attempt to improve it's effectiveness. They are operating under a false premise, the reverse is true. It is less effective and in some cases can even lead to toxicity. Please don't be fooled by claims of the benefits of greater concentration. We don't carry these products for this reason.
