Colloidal Silver – all you need to know

COLLOIDAL SILVER 

also known as The Universal Antibiotic 

Prior to 1938 colloidal silver was considered to be one of the mainstays of antibiotic treatment. It is still considered to be the most universal antibiotic substance that is non-toxic.  It has been proven to be useful against over hundreds of different health conditions, as compared to traditional antibiotics, which are questionably effective against 6-7 conditions

….

From the wonderful humanitarian, physicist, grandfather of COLLOIDAL SILVER –  Dr Robert  Beck (D.Sc)

‘TRUE COLLOIDAL SILVER : Trace elements exist even in distilled water, and when the charged silver particles combine with a specific trace element, the solution can turn one of a number of colors, like gray, yellow, green or brown.  The element the silver chooses is largely irrelevant.  

….

Is it safe?

Zero toxicity – wonderful for your pets too

The body’s ability to process the tiny atoms of colloidal silver makes silver build-up in the body impossible.  The Environmental Protection Agency’s Poison control Center reports a “No Toxicity” listing for colloidal silver.  In fact, it appears that harmlessness is one of the attributes of the colloidal state.

According to the EPA (CASRN 7440-22-4) Daily Oral Silver Reference Dose (RfD) applied to 10 ppm, one may ingest 178,850 servings safely over 70 years

….

Do we need colloidal silver?

Since the body has a vital need for silver – to maintain the immune system and to produce new, healthy cells – and since our blood is also a colloid, the harmonious way in which colloids enter the body may well make colloidal silver the safest medicine on earth.

….

How to administer colloidal silver – 

* One product for a multitude of applications

* A sip a day straight from the bottle is best!

* Just 5 -10 ml per day, or mega-dose, e.g. three or four times a day when the immune system is compromised

* To fight infections increase dosage (30+ ml), even mega-dose until the infection has cleared

* This product can be applied directly to open wounds, eye/ear infections and skin problems

* It can be inhaled or applied into the nostrils with an eye-dropper for sinus, cough and post-nasal drip

* A spray attachment is available which screws onto the bottles,enabling one to use BIO-SIL as a cooling spritzer, deodorant, skin toner, spray for burns and wounds etc

Colloidal Silver and Colds: A Safe, Simple and FAST Way to Stop Colds Before They Get Started!
A personal testimony:
Using Colloidal Silver in the Ears:

…The next time I felt a cold coming on, I used COLLOIDAL SILVER in my ears, instead of hydrogen peroxide. I used three drops of 10 ppm homemade colloidal silver in each ear.
Here’s what I did: I simply lay down on one side, and used an eye dropper to administer the three drops. Then I waited six to eight minutes and turned over and drained the colloidal silver into a tissue. Then I laid down on my other side and repeated the process in the other ear. Wow… …what a difference! No burning or stinging sensation whatsoever. In fact, it was remarkably soothing, instead. No perceptible hearing loss afterwards. And once more the budding cold was knocked out before it could fully take hold. Since that time I’ve used it successfully many, many times to stop fledgling colds from becoming full-blown colds.

Works great on children with symptoms of a fledgling cold, too!

Sinus s(n)orted out with Colloidal Silver

4 Effective Ways to Use Colloidal Silver to Deal with Pesky Sinus Problems (Including Sinus Cough)

 

 

A reader recently wrote me, describing a persistent cough she has been battling after coming down with a cold. She wrote:

I have a cough that I can’t get rid of. This is a dry cough that came on after a cold and I can’t get rid of it. This usually happens to me every winter. This winter I thought I was going to finally go a winter without the cough, but it came on about 1 ½ weeks ago. Is there a way to inhale the silver so it gets into my lungs to help?

I replied:

It sounds to me like a sinus issue, rather than a lung issue. I can’t know for sure, of course. And since I’m not a doctor, I can’t diagnose your condition, nor “prescribe” for you what to do.

However, I get pretty much the same thing every year during cold and flu season, and it almost always happens directly after a nasty cold. I don’t know why. But that’s the way it happens. I’ve been to doctors about it repeatedly over the past three or four years, and in every case the doctor tells me, “It’s your sinuses. They’re dripping down the back of your throat, triggering your cough. You need to start using one of the over-the-counter anti-allergy medications in order to stop it.

Well, I won’t do that because I don’t like the side effects of allergy or sinus medications. But thankfully, based upon my research for The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, I’ve found that there are four basic ways to get colloidal silver up into the sinus cavities and resolve the problem:

Method #1 — Take a regular eye dropper (available at any pharmacy) and fill it with colloidal silver. Lay on your back and then slowly, start dripping colloidal silver, drip by drip, into one of your nostrils. Sniff the droplets of colloidal silver as deeply into your sinuses as you can as you drip them into your nose. Once you let a full dropper’s worth of colloidal silver slowly drip into your nostril, do the other nostril. You might need to do this several times a day for a few days in order to notice the sinus problem resolving.

 

This is probably the simplest method of resolving the sinus problem and related cough. But in my own personal experience it is not as effective as any of the other three methods below. So if that doesn’t work for you, you might want to consider trying this:

Method #2 — Go to your local pharmacy and purchase one of those little one-ounce or two-ounce nasal squeeze spray bottles full of saline solution that people use to spray a fine mist of saline solution up into their sinuses. They cost about a buck.

But what you’re going to do when you get it home is grab the little nipple-nozzle and pull it right out of the bottle. Then dump the saline solution and wash the empty squeeze spray bottle out real good with warm water. Then rinse it out real good with distilled water.

Finally, fill it about half-way with colloidal silver (no more than halfway or it won’t spray the fine mist you need) and put the little nipple-nozzle back in. Then start using it to spray a fine mist of colloidal silver up into your nostrils at least three or four times a day, while sniffing vigorously to get it up into the sinuses. (See “How to make a Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray Bottle” to learn more.)

If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making your own nasal spray squeeze bottle as described above, you can buy a simple pump spray bottle like the one to the left, which are usually available on Amazon or other websites for a few bucks. Sometimes even local health food stores carry them. They work just as well, or better, than the squeeze spray bottle described above.

 

Those options usually do the trick. But if not, there’s another method avid colloidal silver users use:

Method #3 — Go to your local pharmacy and buy a small plastic pot with a long spout, called a “neti pot.” The neti pot allows you to completely flush your sinuses. It usually comes with little packets of powder containing sea salt and baking soda.

Basically, you follow the directions that come with the neti pot, adding lukewarm water to the basin of the pot, while stirring in a packet of the powder. But you’re going to add about an ounce of colloidal silver to the mix and make sure it’s well stirred. (For more stubborn sinus problems, some people add half warm water and half colloidal silver to the neti pot.)

The general idea is to stand over a bathroom sink, lean forward, turn your head to one side, and insert the end of the long neti pot spout into one of your nostrils, and then literally start pouring the solution into your nostril (see a short video demonstration of how to use a neti pot, here). The liquid solution will go straight to your sinus cavity, and then run out your other nostril. I know it sounds weird. But for many people with stubborn sinus issues, rinsing out the sinuses with water and colloidal silver is the #1 most effective choice.

 

Method #4 — Finally, if all else fails, you can nebulize colloidal silver directly into your sinuses. When you add colloidal silver to the reservoir in a medical nebulizer and turn the machine on, it atomizes the liquid colloidal silver and turns it into a vapor you can inhale through your mouth or through your nose. In the case of a suspected sinus issue, inhaling through the nose would obviously be the most desirable method, because that allows the colloidal silver vapor to coat your sinus cavities as you inhale it.

Nebulizing colloidal silver into the sinuses is generally considered to be a last resort for most people, because medical nebulizers are often hard to come by, and they can be a bit pricey, especially compared to a simple pump spray bottle or squeeze spray bottle such as those discussed above. Plus, nebulizers are considered to be medical devices, so most commercial outlets such as pharmacies will want a prescription from your doctor before they’ll sell you one.

However, people often sell nebulizers on Amazon and on eBay without requiring a prescription to buy. And there’s a nifty site called JustNebulizers.com, too, where you can choose from a wide array of nebulizers. You can easily pick one up for under $50 if you shop carefully. One of my favorite brands of nebulizers is called “Omron.” They’re a bit more expensive, but they’re very well-made. Nevertheless, there are many brands and they all do a pretty good job of atomizing liquids (such as colloidal silver) so they can be inhaled.

You can learn more about nebulizing colloidal silver in the article (and short video) titled “Using Colloidal Silver With a Nebulizer” (also, be sure to read the important cautions in that article). Most people I know nebulizer their colloidal silver anywhere from three to five minutes at a time, and then stop. You may have to do it several times throughout the course of the day, initially. But it doesn’t take long to start healing your sinuses, and you can then judge how often you need to use it after that. For me, it generally knocks out a sinus problem (along with that irritating sinus cough) in two or three days, or less.

In Conclusion…

Okay, those are the four basic methods for using colloidal silver to deal with pesky sinus problems. Again, I’m not “diagnosing” or “prescribing.” Just reporting what I’ve learned in the course of my research for The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual.

Be sure to let me know how it works out for you, should you decide to try any of these methods!

Colloidal Silver – some benefits

Proven Colloidal Silver Health Benefits Infographic chart

What is Colloidal Silver?Dime

Before the invention of the refrigerator, it was common practice to drop a silver coin into a container of milk as a preservative because silver was known to prevent the growth of algae, bacteria and other undesirable organisms.

Dating back to ancient times, silver was also a popular remedy to stop the spread of diseases. Its use as a natural antibiotic continued all the way until the 1940s, when modern antibiotics arrived.

Today, obviously, people don’t need to drop silver coins into their water to experience colloidal silver benefits! All you need to do is carefully take a few drops from a bottle that you buy at the store, which is:

A solution of water containing nanometre sized particles of suspended silver. The total silver content is expressed as milligrams of silver per litre (mg/L) of water which is numerically the same as parts per million (ppm). The total silver content is divided into two forms of silver: ionic silver and silver particles. (3)

There are basically three types of products that are marketed as “colloidal silver” and these can be categorized as:

  • Ionic silver solutions
  • Silver protein
  • True colloidal silver

Ionic silver – 

Ionic silver solutions are products whose silver content primarily consists of silver ions. Although ionic silver is often marketed as colloidal silver, it’s not true colloidal silver. Because it’s the least expensive to produce, ionic silver is the most popular product in this category. The problem? It simply won’t produce the same benefits that true colloidal silver can.

Silver Protein – 

In order to keep large silver particles suspended, silver protein-based products add gelatin. Silver protein is the second-most popular type of colloidal silver product on the market and can easily be made by adding water to silver protein powder. Again, it’s also often marketed and labeled as colloidal silver, but should not be confused for the real thing. Silver protein is less effective for human use, and you won’t experience the true colloidal silver benefits.

True Colloidal Silver – 

Lastly, true silver colloids don’t contain any protein or other additives, as the vast majority of the silver content consists of nanometre-sized silver particles. (4)



Colloidal Silver Side Effects

Although the National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health reports that colloidal silver may cause poor absorption of some drugs, there is limited research proving that side effects to colloidal silver use even exist. (17)

Nonetheless, you may come across many warnings about it causing an irreversible condition called argyria (when people turn blue). However, this is caused by misuse not of true colloidal silver, but through other cheaper products marketed as colloidal silver, such as ionic silver or silver protein.

One point to consider is that, because colloidal silver is such a potent antibacterial agent, you should be sure to supplement with probiotics during use to be sure that you maintain a proper balance of microflora.
