Colloidal Silver – Catalytic Oxidation
Silver can naturally hold oxygen molecules and it’s known to readily react with the sulfhydral (H) groups that surround bacteria and viruses. It also helps block the life-preserving cellular process.
Cellular respiration refers to the set of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the body’s cells of organisms to help convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is then released as a waste product.
Colloidal Silver – Antibacterial
Colloidal silver is known to have the ability to help control antibiotic-resistant superbugs. A study done by Larry C. Ford, MD at UCLA Medical School in the 1980s involved documenting over 650 different types of disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver.
Unlike its modern prescription antibiotic counterpart, colloidal silver simply doesn’t produce resistance or immunity in the organisms that are killed by it. This point can’t be emphasized enough especially in the light of a recent report from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that over 2 million people in the U.S. suffer from some sort of illness each year as a result of antibiotic-resistant infections, with 23,000 dying from these infections.
Colloidal Silver – Wonder Care/Skin Care
According to Robert I. Becker, MD, colloidal silver can help stimulate healing in the skin and other soft tissues in the body.
Furthermore, according to an article published by Pharmacognosy Communications in 2012, it was particularly recommended that certain colloidal silver preparations should be taken into consideration for topical use to help treat burns, thrush, periodontitis and other conditions.
For example, you can treat ringworm at home with the use of colloidal silver due to its strong anti-fungal properties. Caused by a fungus that thrives on the top layer of the skin, ringworm appears as a round, scaly pattern on the skin. It’s contagious and spreads via skin contact and by contaminated materials like clothing.
The benefits of colloidal silver means that many other skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema can be managed more easily. Colloidal silver also soothes scrapes, and can even help repair tissue damage caused by burns.
Colloidal Silver – Pink Eye/Ear Infections
Pink eye is defined as an inflamed mucous membrane that covers both the eyeball and the eyelid lining. This disease is usually caused by either by a bacterial or viral infection.
Colloidal silver can be used to prompt action against this irritating and highly contagious virus or bacteria. When applied on the infected eye, the tiny silver colloids pick up the infected cells by electromagnetically attracting them and sending them into the bloodstream to be eliminated.
The modern prescription antibiotic drugs are designed to work against certain classes of bacteria; however, ear infections may be caused by multiple classes of bacteria or can even be fungal in nature. In cases like this, the prescription antibiotic will be completely useless, whereas colloidal silver is effective regardless of what may be causing the infection.
Colloidal Silver – Antiviral
The antiviral properties of colloidal silver can be of great benefit for people who are living with HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, herpes, shingles and warts.
According to Dr. Martin Hum from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, colloidal silver is listed as one of the natural remedies that can help stop a virus from quickly spreading. Colloidal silver helps by suffocating the virus and it can even lower the activity of the HIV virus in patients living with AIDS. There are also several notable anecdotal accounts of colloidal silver’s efficacy against the hepatitis C virus.
Colloidal Silver – Anti-Inflammatory
Colloidal silver is considered to be one of the best anti-inflammatory remedy available.
Researchers at the National Institute of Health (NIH) have studied the effects of inflammation after being treated with colloidal silver. They discovered that the inflamed skin of pigs treated with the silver experienced close-to-normal skin after 72 hours. On the other hand, the skin of the second group who weren’t treated with colloidal silver remained inflamed.
Research is starting to reflect what a lot of people have already known for years – colloidal silver can help reduce swelling, speed up healing and helps boost cell recovery.
Colloidal Silver – Sinusitis
Colloidal silver can help cure sinusitis if it’s used as a nasal spray, according to a study published in the International Forum for Allergy and Rhinology. Specifically shown to help kill Staph aureus, you can add a couple of drops of silver in a “neti pot” or by applying it directly into your nasal cavity and letting it drain down your throat by slightly tilting your head back.
In addition, it’s important to take note that recent research indicates that hidden infections by pathogens could be a cause of respiratory inflammation that’s associated with common allergies and asthma. Also, colloidal silver can destroy Pseudomonas seruginosa infections, which could be the reason why airborne allergy sufferers often find such dramatic relief from colloidal silver.
Colloidal Silver – Cold/Flu
Colloidal silver can help prevent all types of flu, including AH1N1 flu (Swine Flu) as well as the common cold.
There have been a couple of studies to test this benefit clinically where experts took 100 children under the age of 12 who were suffering from the common cold or nasal congestion, and then assigned them to one of two groups. The first group was treated with colloidal silver, while the other was treated with saline solution. Although both groups benefited from the treatment, 90% of the children in the group treated with colloidal silver recovered completely.
Colloidal Silver – Pneumonia
When pneumonia is viral, antibiotics won’t help in the least. On the other hand, colloidal silver can help regardless of what pathogen is involved.
Colloidal silver is a remarkable product that will help ward off both bronchitis and pneumonia when it’s ingested internally. All you need to do is to simply breathe it into your lungs (for better utilization). The silver directly contacts the germs causing bronchitis or pneumonia, which typically reside in the lungs. Basically, it’s the same as using respiratory support, though it works fast, clearing the illness up within a couple of days.
The best way to get colloidal silver into your lungs is to use a nebulizer. Generally, use a single teaspoon approximately three times a day for 10 to 15 minutes.
Colloidal Silver – Dosage and Usage
Here are a fewthings you need to remember about colloidal silver use and dosage:
- Always keep in mind to never use it for more than 2 weeks in a row
- 2-5 drops applied to the skin should be enough
- 1 eyedropper amount should be taken orally for immune support
- 1-2 drops into the eyes for pink eye infections
- 1-2 drops can help disinfect any wound or sore by applying it onto a bandage.
If prepared properly, colloidal silver can be:
- injected into a muscle or a cancerous tumor
- injected into the bloodstream via 5 drops added to a neti pot, or directly sprayed into the nose. 5-10 drops can also be applied either vaginally or anally.
