The Return of Silver in Medicine:
Colloidal Silver
Nature's Alternative to Antibiotics


OTHER ESTABLISHED USES OF COLLOIDAL SILVER

Usage


By: K. Adachi
The list of minor and serious conditions that can be resolved using colloidal silver is practically endless. Colloidal silver has the capacity to help you rid yourself of an untold number of infections, disease conditions, or environmental concerns caused by or aggravated by the growth of bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungus, or molds that are either inside or outside of your body, or in your living environment. Paradoxically, this extremely wide breadth of applications has the tendency to overwhelm most readers. The list is so long that people tend to de-focus and unwittingly minimize the full range of therapeutic possibilities that colloidal silver offers. They might rinse their gums with colloidal silver before swallowing, but not think about using it for anything else!

So, besides drinking it, put it into a small atomizer pump bottle (2 or 4 oz size) and carry it in your pocket. I obtained mine by rinsing out a bottle that originally had eyeglass cleaning solution it in, but there are dozens of products utilizing this type of fine sprayer bottle that are found in any drug store. By spraying it externally, you can clear up everything from Acne to Athlete’s Foot & Diaper Rash to Poison Ivy. You’ll be amazed and pleasantly surprised by the results. The ideas listed below are designed merely to stimulate your imagination. Don’t limit yourself by assuming that this list is exhaustive. It’s only the beginning! Remember, you need to try it in order to see for yourself what silver colloid can do.

If you’re a mother with young children, watch how quickly diaper rash, eye infections and ear infections clear up with colloidal silver. For diaper rash, spray directly on the body and into the fresh diaper. You can apply it with an eye dropper for any type of eye infection. Ear infections quickly heal after spraying colloid in the ear, saturating a small piece of cotton for an earplug and then periodically re-spraying. Spray it on band-aid pads to shorten healing time. Spray immediately on burns (sunburns too) to prevent infections, lower pain, and promote faster healing with less scarring. Add to bath water, gargles, colon irrigation and Water-Pic solutions. Added to douches, women will find that it will rapidly clear up vaginal/yeast infections and most cases of cystitis.

Older folks who are bedridden can especially benefit from silver colloid. Rinse all sheets, pillow cases, towels, blankets, etc by pouring a large cupful into your washer during its rinse cycle. Naturally, spray it directly on festering bed sores, skin rashes, psoriasis, etc. and watch what happens! Add to soaks for dentures and dental appliances.

Allergic reactions to certain foods or other irritants can cause hives or welts to appear on any area of the body of susceptible people shortly after exposure. Instead of running off to the doctor’s office for a steroid prescription of topical Cortisone or worst yet, Prednisone, spray colloidal silver on the affected area and watch the hives completely disappear in 15 minutes or so!

I never come down with a bug after long plane trips because I always spray silver colloid in my mouth and inhale the mist through my nose and lungs every 30 minutes or so while on the plane. Oral spraying also eliminates bad breath and reduces gum inflammation or abscess pain.

Pet lovers need to add a capful to their pet’s drinking water and spray inside opened cans of pet food that are stored in the refrigerator. Add a cupful to birdbaths, the dog’s bath or your bath. Of course, spray it into Fluffy’s fur and skin if she has any type of eczema, skin sore, abrasion, or a wound that won’t heal, etc. Spray bedding and let it dry.

Put the colloidal silver in a larger pump bottle for use around the kitchen and bathroom. Mist sponges, towels, counters and cutting boards to eliminate odors (especially when preparing sea food), salmonella, E.Coli 0157:H7, (the tainted beef bug that you’ve been reading about in the newspapers lately) and other food-borne pathogens. Spray on fruits and vegetables before storing. Use when canning, preserving or bottling. Add to milk to slow spoilage. Spray garbage cans and refrigerator shelves to eliminate unpleasant odors. Add to dishwater and mopping solutions.

In the bathroom, spray shower stalls, toilets, bath mats, and pour a couple of cups into hot tubs or Jacuzzi. Add to water poured over saunas rocks or utilized in steam baths. Use in gymnasium foot dips. Spray it on urinals, bidets, toilet seats and sinks.

Around the house (or barn or survival area), add a capful to a gallon of water and use as a plant spray to stop fungi, molds, rot, and most plant diseases. Eliminate unwanted organisms in planter soils (E.g. Square Foot Gardening) and hydroponics systems. Add it to suspected drinking water when traveling or camping. It will neutralize all disease causing pathogens within six minutes. Spray it in your shoes or sneakers to eliminate foot odor. Household repairmen can add it to water based paints, wallpaper glues, and sizing compounds and never worry about mildew and mold again. If you live in a humid environment, spray it on carpets, drapes, and stored clothing and free yourself of musty odors and mildewed clothes.

Dr Bob Beck has repeatedly pointed out in his many lectures, that there are literally thousands of other beneficial uses for colloidal silver that need to be attempted and explored. So this is your chance. Do your part and experiment with this marvelous gift of Nature.

GLOSSARY

An amazing, yet still only partial list of more than 650 diseases that Colloidal Silver has been used against include

(in alphabetical order): Acne, AIDS, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis and athletes foot, bladder infection, blood parasites, blood poisoning, boils, bubonic plagues and burns; cancer, candida, canine parvovirus, chilblains, cholera, colitis, conjunctivitis and cystitis; dandruff dermatitis, diabetes and dysentery; eczema and encephalitis; fibrositis; gastritis and gonorrhea; hayfever and herpes; impetigo and indigestion; keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis and lyme disease; malaria and meningitis. Also, neurasthenia; parasitic infection, pleurisy, pneumonia, prostate infection. pruritis ani, psoriasis and purulent ophtalmia; rheumatism, rhinitis and ringworm; scarlet fever, septic conditions (eyes ears,mouth and throat), seborrhea, septicemia, shingles, staph and strep infections, stomach flu and syphilis; thrush (yeast infection), thyroid infections, tonsillitis, toxemia, trachoma, trench foot and tuberculosis; ulcerated stomach; virus (all forms) ; warts and whooping cough and yeast infection (females).


RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SKIN PROBLEMS

While Colloidal Silver is used as a preventative against viruses, bacteria and funguses through daily oral use; Colloidal Silver has been also applied directly to open wounds and sores to eliminate surface infections. Apart from its beneficial effect Colloidal Silver does not sting or burn. Other antiseptics sting when applied to a wound because they are killing the surrounding tissue cells as well as killing the germs. But whilst Colloidal Silver kills the topical germs within six minutes, it does not harm any surrounding tissues.

Acne: In addition to omitting sugars,fats and chocolate from the diet, any person with acne should wash and rinse the face thoroughly four times a day; and after each rinsing, use a small amount of Colloidal Silver and massage it onto the problem areas two to three times with a finger or a tiny piece of cotton or tissue. This wash- rinse-massage activity may be continued throughout an acne breakout, or better, as a continuous prevention through the teen years. This continuous habit precludes breakouts, leaving the skin continuously clear. Most people find it helpful to carry a 50ml or 200ml bottle of Colloidal Silver with them for availability throughout the day.

Cuts and abrasions: Apply Colloidal Silver directly to the open wound and onto any dressing used. Colloidal Silver may be used as the only medication on the dressing, or it may be used with another medication.

Eczema and skin rash: Dab Colloidal Silver directly onto affected area, rubbing slightly. Repeat often to keep the area moist. Bandage lightly, if desired, keeping the bandage moist with Colloidal Silver. Change bandage daily. Warts: Cover the wart with a small adhesive bandage saturated with a few drops of Colloidal Silver. Keep the bandage moist. The wart should disappear within a few days. Large warts may take a few days longer to disappear.


RECOMMENDATION FOR INTESTINAL PROBLEMS

Optimum digestion: Put all, or a fraction of the recommended daily amount of Colloidal Silver, as determined by titration, into the beverage of choice accompanying any meal. As the food is digested, the presence of Colloidal Silver will keep the food from putrefying in the digestive tract, killing any germs ingested with the food, and leaving the food more useable. Also there will be no flatulence.

Parasitic infections: To take an amount of Colloidal Silver, again as determined by titration to preclude parasitic diseases caused by tiny, worm like animals that burrow through a particular organ, or in some cases throughout the entire body. In every case, these parasites reproduce by laying eggs and these eggs have the same characteristics of the oxygen-metabolising enzyme as the single celled bacterium. These eggs cannot hatch when there is sufficient Colloidal Silver in the surrounding body tissue. They are killed within a short time and subsequently eliminated by the immune system. Diarrhea diseases: A number of diseases such as cholera, canine parvovirus or other diseases, where the pathogen resides mainly in the large intestine, can be fatal. The fatality is mostly due to the dehydration of the body resulting from severe and prolonged diarrhea and vomiting. The pathogen causing the problem is active in the large intestine, the one place where Colloidal Silver when used correctly will not penetrate. There are two different methods to overcome this barrier.

The first is to take a 200 ml glass dosed with Colloidal Silver together with three or four big glasses of water on an empty stomach. This way the Colloidal Silver will get into the large intestine and should within a short time take care of the problem.

The other method is by way of colonic irrigation the dose rate using a 50mg. Colloidal Silver preparation is 15 ml per 200ml. of sterile water. This method in fact brings the fastest relief from the disease, Medical literature reports that Cholera has been cured with Colloidal Silver. Healing crisis: This is a condition wherein the Colloidal Silver is killing the pathogens very rapidly. The body's five eliminatory systems, the kidney, liver, skin, bowel and lungs become temporarily overloaded. This especially is true in the case of overcoming AIDS with Colloidal Silver. One may feel as though he or she has the flu. It is recommended to continue the silver regimen, yet drink up to 4 liters of water a day, take five or six grams of vitamin C and a high enema. Repeat for two or three days. Please note if the healing crisis persists see your local practitioner for additional advise.


RECOMMENDATION FOR PURIFYING FOOD & WATER

Water purification: Colloidal Silver is an excellent water purifier. Water stored with one or two tablespoons of Colloidal Silver per 5 litres will be safe and sweet tasting for a very long time. Water containing germ contaminants (not toxic chemicals) can be made drinkable by adding two to three tablespoons of Colloidal Silver per every 5 litres of water. The Silver whilst purifying the water is also beneficial to the body, unlike the commercial tablets containing toxic chlorine bleach!

To guard against such water-borne diseases such as dysentery, the following airlines now use either silver water filters or a well known Hydrogen Peroxide/Colloidal Silver combination. British Airways, Swiss Air, Scandinavian Airlines, Lufthansa, Air France, Canadian Pacific Airlines, Alitalia, KLM, Japan Airlines and Pan Am. The Swiss and Australian Government has approved either or both the silver water filters or the hydrogen Peroxide/Colloidal Silver preparation which are now used in homes offices and town water supplies.

After testing 23 methods of purifying water, NASA selected a silver system for its space shuttle. Home-canned foods: One-half teaspoon of Colloidal Silver per 1 litre in home-canned foods precludes the growth of all bacteria, virus and fungus. As the food is consumed, the presence of silver will aid in the digestion process by not allowing fermentation of starches contained in the food, and will prevent the putrefaction of protein or rancification of fats in the digestive tract. Neither will there be a formation of gas in the bowel, nor food decay from toxins to diminish a sense of well being.

Most commercial food processing operations to date have elected to use preservatives which, unlike Colloidal Silver, are toxic and poisonous to people. were these commercial food processors to use Colloidal Silver instead, it would yield the triple benefit mentioned above.

Questionable refrigeration: In addition to keeping prepared foods cool and well sealed, add about one table spoon of Colloidal Silver per 1 liter (volume) to picnic foods containing mayonnaise, dairy products, or anything that has a potential for Salmonella growth and poisoning. Stir in very well.

Leftovers and Condiments: Mix about one quarter tablespoon of Colloidal Silver into each container of mustard, ketchup or pickle relish. Mix one half teaspoon into items that spoil more easily, i.e. mayonnaise, milk etc. They will store longer, remain fresher and benefit digestion.


VETERINARY USES OF COLLOIDAL SILVER
The following conditions in animals, birds and fish have been successfully treated with Colloidal Silver:
* Bacteria and parasites in house pets, farm animals and birds.
* Parvovirus in dogs.
* Revival of belly-up goldfish.
* Scours and undulant fever in cattle

 

UNDERSTANDING THE COLLOIDAL STATE

Most chemistry text books have a chapter on the colloidal state, as if it were a special case. Actually, the colloidal state is the only state for all living things.

Within fluid water, the chemical elements of life occur in a flux of halves, or opposite electrical pairs, always in motion and swapping these molecular halves in complex chemical reactions that are the process of growth and repair. In this flux of the body's fluids are the germ pathogens also, whose own molecular pairs interact with those of the body as they strive to survive. They are all parasites that attack and eat the body cells of the host person, dumping their waste into the surrounding tissues and the bloodstream. When this fluid flux contains an electrically charged ion or micro-particle of Colloidal Silver, it selects from among the tissue cells of the body only those disease causing pathogens and suffocates them catalytically, simply by being there; then, unaffected drift on, to repeat the process again and again.

The crystalline state is the condition of dry, dead matter. Most medications are in the crystallized state. The body must first convert them to the colloidal state before they can be used. There is some expense to the body in time, energy and effectiveness. During this process some molecular pieces are left over, which burden the body with their need to be eliminated. In the case of Colloidal Silver, nothing is left!


CHARACTERISTICS OF COLLOIDAL SILVER

Colloidal Silver will react chemically with many of the 92 natural elements and compounds. While many of these compounds are toxic, pure silver is non-toxic. It acts only catalytically with the enzyme, or chemical lung of single celled organisms. Pure Silver won't dissolve in water, however if pure silver is by some process divided into single atoms of micro-clusters of fewer than 15 atoms each, given a positive electrical charge and attached to a molecule of simple protein, it will float in and throughout the pure water indefinitely, creating a so called colloidal suspension. The force of electric charge is stronger than the force of gravity, thus the particle remains suspended. Much has been written and claimed by people displaying a fair amount of ignorance of the workings of a colloidal substance mainly with regard to the color of colloidal silver. True colloidal silver is a colorless liquid because the micro-clusters of the silver are simply too small for light to reflect back to the human eye ( the particular wave length of the reflected light determines the color we perceive) Many manufacturers not being able to make a true colloidal silver preparation resort to using food or other coloring agents to give the liquid a yellow appearance because they somewhere have read that colloidal silver should have a color to its liquid.

Color will be noticed if one of the following conditions are present:
* The Silver used is of a silver sulfide type and not very healthy (yellow, mainly used in the ceramic industry)
* The Silver used is Silver Oxide (brownish, black in color)
* The particles are too big in size
* Food or other coloring dyes were used
* If the silver loses its colloidal state and precipitate out of solution (mainly black) in this case the product will have lost its efficacy and should be disposed of as contrary to some advise to shake the bottle will not revert the silver particles to a colloidal state.

People are best advised to stay clear of these products as they are in many cases of dubious quality and most certainly have little or no beneficial effect. If you have any doubt regarding the actual colloidal silver content, ask the vendor for a Batch Sample Silver Analyses. Reputable manufacturers will have Health Department approval for their manufacturing facilities and have their Colloidal Silver batches analyzed and the result of same available for their customers.


CARE AND STORAGE OF COLLOIDAL SILVER

Keep Colloidal Silver in the food storage, store it in glass containers only and away from electrical appliances. Although glass breaks easier, glass is the only material that will keep Colloidal Silver for any length of time. DO NOT accept Colloidal Silver packaged in plastic as its shelf life is minimal and the silver particles most likely will plate out on the surface and hence are no longer in suspension. There is an inherent electric charge in the hydrocarbon molecule that will draw the charged silver particle out of solution, bonding it to the side wall of the plastic container! You may not see it but it's there all right. The preparation is then unusable.

Do not store Colloidal Silver in a refrigerator or freezer, as the long term electric charge of the appliance can have the same effect on colloidal silver as does storing it in a plastic container.


WHEN IT MAY BE THE ONLY THING AVAILABLE

Some people believe there may be a time in the foreseeable future when food storage may be the only means of antibiotic/disinfectant for any of us. Life would be very different then, with many items unavailable, and a storage of Colloidal Silver could be life saving.

A very different condition in the future could be rampant diseases, plagues from contamination's of the water and air through man made Bio-toxins of germ warfare (as seen in the Strecker Memorandum video) Whatever the source, either invasion or local error any military activity can result in a major outbreak of anthrax or lesser causes resulting in Salmonella poisoning. Another extreme threat for our immediate future is the emergence of so called Super Bugs. Because of the current over-use of pharmaceutical antibiotics today, many virus and bacteria organisms will be immune to the conventional medicines!

Colloidal Silver is not only a way of prevention now, but may possible be our best choice to store for future use.


MEDICAL STUDIES AND OTHER TESTING

Colloidal Silver and illness: The author of body Electric Dr. R.Becker, noted in his studies a correlation between low silver levels and illness: Those who had low silver levels frequently were sick more often with colds, flu, fever and other illnesses. He said he believes a silver deficiency is the reason for the improper functioning of the immune system and that silver is critical for the destruction of bacteria and viruses. Becker's experiments conclude that silver works on a wide range of bacteria without any side effects and without any damage to the cells of the body. Colloidal Silver and healing: Becker also states that the silver ion was doing something more than killing disease causing organisms. It was, he observed, facilitating major growth stimulation of injured tissues. When human fibroblast cells, which are common throughout the body, were exposed to silver, they differentiated. That is, they changed into an embryonic general cell, able to multiply at a great rate and then change into the specialized cells of the organ or tissue that had been injured. Even in patients over the age of 50 years, tissues healed as easily as a child's tissues.

Colloidal State and Cancer: Again Becker concluded that in the presence of silver ion, cancer cells change back to normal cells regardless of their location in the body. He concluded that the presence of silver ion regenerates tissues and eliminates cancerous cells as well as eliminating other abnormal cells.

Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom of Sweden's Karolinska Institute has used silver in his cancer cure methods for many years. he records that he has successfully cured patients who had been diagnosed by other doctors as terminally ill. Swimming pool water purification: Silver is widely used to purify swimming pool water, and it does not sting as does chlorine. A dramatic demonstration in Nebraska recently placed 250 litres of raw sewage into a pool containing no disinfectant. A standard measure of fecal contamination is the count of Escheri coli ( E. coli) and organism found in the human intestinal tract. The count soared to 7000 colony forming E coli cells per milliliter of water. Subsequently the water was flushed through a silver electrode array, which totally eliminated the E.coli within three hours. Follow-up tests also shown the water to be completely free of other one-celled organisms. Hydroponics testing: Tests in a hydroponics greenhouse showed that Colloidal Silver is absorbed and used by the living plant as are any other minerals. Hydroponics is an ideal gardening method having only one problem: Viruses, funguses and bacteria tend to thrive in the plant nutrient fluid. Colloidal Silver is proven to kill every one of the pathogens, and without any consequence to the nutrient medium or to the delicate plants. In addition, the plants ingested the silver through their roots, thus becoming a source of the silver minerals for human consumption.

Overdose testing: In laboratory tests since 1985 researchers knew that overdose testing needed to be performed. One lab technician involved in the project from the beginning, volunteered himself as a guinea pig for the first project. He consumed 1 liter of water dosed with a high concentration of Colloidal Silver for a period of several weeks. The chemistry of his body fluids was monitored, as was his general well being (colds flu headaches etc. ). He was especially observed for any change in skin color to see if the technicians skin would develop a gray pallor of Argyria. He had no change of color in his skin, felt more vigorous and alert and experienced no aches or colds etc. Others in the laboratory repeated the test themselves finding the same results.

UCLA study: It is claimed that some years ago an independent research laboratory sent to the University of California in Los Angeles a sample of Colloidal Silver to be tested against AIDS and anthrax. UCLA undertook the tests and proved conclusively that Colloidal Silver was highly effective in remedial applications against both disease pathogens. The independent researcher has obtained the same results in his own laboratory, and sought confirmation from UCLA. When the UCLA laboratory director called to confirm those findings, the director of the independent laboratory asked to have as the test results on a letter bearing the UCLA letterhead. However he was advised that a payment of U$ 10,000 was required for this letter. The UCLA lab report confirming the effectiveness remains unofficial.

Nebulizer & glutathione: I have found nebulized glutathione to be incredible for my lungs. I have been doing glutathione IV's for mopping up toxins from lyme disease. I started doing nebulized glutathione to get it in my blood between IV's. I recently had a cold and in the past it always caused a severe lung infection and bronchitis. It would take months to get back to normal. With the glutathione inhalation, there was much less sign of lung infection, and the bronchitis was so minimal, I was back to normal in 2-3 weeks instead of months. Source
