How the Infection-Fighting Power of Silver Was Re-Discovered

 

 

The history of the medical and therapeutic use of silver is a fascinating one, going back many centuries. 

 

Here’s a brief overview taking you from 425 B.C. to the present day, and demonstrating conclusively through historical documentation that colloidal silver is indeed the world’s most effective natural infection-fighting agent…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com

 

The phenomenal healing and infection-fighting qualities of silver have been known quite literally since before the time of Christ.

 

Indeed, according to the records of Herodotus, written in 425 B.C., ancient Persian kings such as Cyrus the Great insisted their water was carried in silver vessels when going off to war, in order to prevent it from becoming contaminated.

 

Of course, since this was long before the realization that microbes are the cause of infection or contamination, the silver was being used empirically.   It was simply observed that water did not become impure and make you sick when you drink it, if it was stored in silver vessels.

* * * * *

 

In his study published in the journal Surgical Infections, J. Wesley Alexander writes:

“The ancient Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and others also were recorded to have used silver in one form or another to preserve food and water from spoiling. 

The application of silver plates to achieve better wound healing was used by the Macedonians, perhaps the first attempt to prevent or treat surgical infections.

Hippocrates used silver preparations for the treatment of ulcers and to promote wound healing”

* * * * *

And in 78 A.D. Pliny the Elder wrote, “”[Slag of silver] has healing properties as an ingredient in plasters, being extremely effective in causing wounds to close up.”

 

* * * * *

What’s more, it’s said that early American pioneers always placed a silver dollar into buckets of milk in order to help keep the milk for spoiling quickly.

 

And for centuries, long before the advent of refrigeration, the people of India have pounded silver into thin, delicate sheets called varakh, which are about one hundredth of the thickness of a sheet of paper.

 

These sheets of silver are used to wrap candies and foods in order to prevent them from spoiling in the country’s hot outdoor food bazaars.

 

Traditionally, the food is eaten foil and all, because of its ability to prevent stomach infections that can be caused by eating the unrefrigerated foods.

 

 

The Advent of Colloidal Silver

 

After Edison showed the world how to harness and utilize electricity in 1879, scientists quickly discovered that they could suspend silver rods in pure water, and sinter tiny silver particles off of them by running electricity through them.

 

This became known as electrically-generated colloidal silver.  Chemical processes were also invented for making a variety of colloidal silver solutions.

 

And by the late 1930’s – well before the advent of prescription antibiotic drugs — colloidal silver in its various forms had become one of the most popular infection-fighting substances among doctors, being sold under the names of Collargol, Protargol, Electrargol, Lunasol and many others.

* * * * *

” Without overstating the case, it may be time to recognisz colloidal silver as not only the safest medicine on Earth, but also the most powerful.

Dr Robert C Beck (D.Sc 1999)

* * * * *

 

As Robert Bartholow wrote of silver’s infection-fighting qualities in A Practical Treatise on Materia Medica and Therapeutics, way back in 1908: 

“As a topical agent, silver may be used in surgical diseases, wounds, injuries, and in cases of septic decomposition.

 Wherever diseases— either pure or mixed infectious—are caused by the staphylococcus, the streptococcus, and other forms of low organisms, this remedy is effective in a high degree.”* * * * *

* * * * *

And as Dr. William Halstead, M.D., one of the founding fathers of modern surgery, stated of silver in 1913:

“We may only have scratched the surface of silver’s medical brilliance! Already it is an amazing tool!

It stimulates bone – forming cells, cures the most stubborn infections of all kinds…and stimulates healing in skin and other soft tissues.

 I know of nothing which could quite take its place, nor, have I known anyone to abandon it who had thoroughly familiarized himself with the technique of its application. “

* * * * *

As the British Medical Journal stated in February 1917:

“Colloidal silver has been used successfully in septic conditions of the mouth including pyorrhea alveolysis, throat, ear, and in generalized septicemia, leucorrhea, cystitis, whooping cough and shingles.”

 

* * * * * 

As Alfred E. Searle, author of Colloids in Biology and Medicine wrote in 1919:

Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results…it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. It protects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus or diphtheria toxin.” 

 

* * * * * 

As Dr. Henry Crooks, M.D. stated in 1921:

“I know of no microbe that is not killed by silver in laboratory experiments in six minutes.”

And finally, according to The National Druggist, Vol. 50, page 388, in August 1920:

“Colloidal silver is powerfully destructive of toxins of bacterial origin…Experiments on rabbits show that colloidal silver renders subject ‘immune’ from the effects of large quantities of tetanic or diphtheritic serum.

…colloidal silver has proved its value in combating the following ailments among others — tonsilitis, gonorrhoeal conjunctivitis, spring catarrh, pustular eczema of scalp, septic ulcers of legs, boils, chronic cystiitis, ringwork, soft sores.

 But we must not prolong the list of the good works of colloidal silver. Suffice it that at the present time it is the most extensively used in medicine of all the sols.”

 

* * * * *

 

The Rise and Fall of Antibiotic Drugs

 

But after the advent of prescription antibiotic drugs in the late 1930’s, colloidal silver usage gradually fell out of favor with doctors. And antibiotic drugs were widely embraced in its stead.

 

However, by the 1970’s — less than 40 years after the advent of prescription antibiotic drugs – the antibiotics were already losing their luster, due to the ability of pathogens to mutate and adapt to them.

 

In other words, it was already being documented by medical science that antibiotic drugs began to lose their effectiveness against pathogens relatively rapidly, as the pathogens mutated in response to their presence.

 

This lead researchers and cutting edge doctors to begin looking for alternatives to prescription antibiotics.

 

Some doctors began researching the older medical literature, asking themselves, “How did we treat infections prior to the advent of prescription antibiotic drugs?”

 

And as a result, interest in silver slowly began making a comeback.

 

Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D.

 

By the mid-1970s, a surgeon named Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. began his groundbreaking research at Syracuse Medical University, which would lead to the widespread re-discovery of silver as an effective antimicrobial substance.

 

He had been attempting to demonstrate his theory that small micro-currents of electricity could be used to make stubborn bone fractures heal, if electrodes could be temporarily surgically implanted into the fractures.

 

During the course of his experiments, he began using silver electrodes in order to take advantage of silver’s well-known propensity to conduct electricity. But what he discovered in the process took him completely by surprise.

 

You see, not only did the micro-currents of electricity trigger the bone fractures to heal just as he had expected, but the tiny, electrically generated silver particles that were driven into the bone and surrounding tissue from the silver electrodes healed ALL nearby infections as well.

 

Even rare and potentially deadly bone infections such as osteomyelitis were rapidly healed! Dr. Becker later concluded in his best-selling book The Body Electric:

 

“What we have done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, a fact which had actually been known for centuries …

 

…All of the organisms we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion, including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics…In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.”

 

Yes, indeed. Dr. Becker had re-discovered a fact that medical researchers of old had once known, but that had become lost to medicine ever since the age of prescription antibiotic drugs had been ushered in by the global pharmaceutical conglomerates during the 1940’s.

 

He had re-discovered the fact that silver – one of the world’s oldest and most powerful natural antibiotic substances – could kill just about any pathogen exposed to it. Even the most virulent of pathogens succumb to it with ease!

 

Since that time, colloidal silver has once again become the world’s most popular and effective natural antibiotic substance.

* * * * *

 

As Harvard educated Dr. Jonathan Wright, M.D., of the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington State has written:

“Silver attacks all three of the germ’s vulnerable targets at once.

First, the silver ions easily rupture a germ’s outer membrane when present in the right amounts, causing the germ’s vital internal components to be exposed in the bloodstream to our white blood cells.

 While the white blood cells attack the internal components, the micro-particulate silver continues to destroy these vital internal components by cutting up vital enzymes.

 The silver ions then easily attack the germ’s third vulnerable target: its delicate gene pool.

 Silver ions have the ability to reach into the nucleus of the germ, where its gene pool is located. Once they combine with the genes, the genes become paralyzed, and the germ cannot replicate itself.”

* * * * *

 

 

As Dr. Herbert Slavin, M.D., founder and director of the Institute for Advanced Medicine in Lauderhill, Florida has stated:

“…Colloidal silver is emerging as the new antimicrobial wonder in dealing with bacterial as well as, yes, viral conditions too, both in medicine and in industry… 

Colloidal silver was actually a commonly-used antimicrobial 100 years ago, before the advent of modern antibiotics, which only address bacteria and are becoming largely obsolete while posing risks related to resistant super-germs. 

Colloidal silver is increasingly being recognized for its broad-spectrum antimicrobial qualities and the fact that it presents virtually none of the side-effects related to antibiotics.”

* * * * *

 

As Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D., board certified Immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has stated:

“Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. 

Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science – natural silver. 

I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent.”

* * * * *

And as biochemist James South, MA has written:

“…Electrically-generated colloidal silver [Ag(e)] has been shown to kill dozens of bacteria, including Providencia stuartii, a germ already resistant in the 1970’s to all antibiotics except amikacin, as well as two strains of antibiotic-resistant Enterobacter cloacae that were isolated from burn patients…

… It has also proved adept at killing various yeast/fungus species at very low silver concentrations, including Candida albicans, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicalis, C. pseudotropicalis, Torulopsis glabrata and Aspergillus niger. 

Electrically-generated colloidal silver has also been shown to kill cysts of the common water-borne protozoal parasite Entamoeba histolytica. It has also killed the protozoa Paramecium when exposed to 2.2 ppm silver, as well as the protozoa Varicella at 5.9 ppm. 

 * * * * *

The most amazing case of colloidal silver usage which I’ve had personal knowledge involved an 83 year old woman who was suffering severe septicemia (infectious blood poisoning). 

Her doctors were unable to control the raging infection and had sent her home, expecting her death in 48-72 hours. 

Her husband contacted an intermediary, through whom I recommended trying colloidal silver. The woman was immediately put on one tablespoon of 5 ppm colloidal silver three times daily. 

Within 24 hours her septicemia began to disappear, and within 48 hours her septicemic crisis was over, and she did not die as expected.”

 

Where to Get Colloidal Silver

 

Electrically generated colloidal silver can be purchased today in nearly any well-stocked health food store.

 

But costs can be a bit on the exorbitant side – as much as $20 to $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle of this safe, natural, healing and infection-fighting substance.

 

Thankfully, you don’t have to pay those exorbitant health food store prices.  Indeed, you can make your own high-quality electrically-generated colloidal silver, quickly and easily, with a simple device called a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.

 

The low-voltage Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is based on the ground-breaking work of Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D.

Scientific American: Silver Has Been Used to Fight Infections for Thousands of Years

“Like werewolves and vampires, bacteria have a weakness: silver.

The precious metal has been used to fight infection for thousands of years — Hippocrates first described its antimicrobial properties in 400 bc — but how it works has been a mystery.

Now, a team led by James Collins, a biomedical engineer at Boston University in Massachusetts, has described how silver can disrupt bacteria, and shown that the ancient treatment could help to deal with the thoroughly modern scourge of antibiotic resistance.

…Collins and his team found that silver — in the form of dissolved ions — attacks bacterial cells in two main ways:

It makes the cell membrane more permeable, and it interferes with the cell’s metabolism, leading to the overproduction of reactive, and often toxic, oxygen compounds.

Both mechanisms could potentially be harnessed to make today’s antibiotics more effective against resistant bacteria, Collins says.”

Colloidal silver works to destroy bacterial, fungal and viral infections in cats and dogs just as well as it does in human beings. Furthermore, because colloidal silver is odorless, almost tasteless and non-toxic, experts say you can use it for both dogs and cats internally and externally.

If you are looking for a healthy, alternative way to take care of your pets and avoid expensive veterinary bills, colloidal silver can go a long way in helping you achieve that goal. Whether you are looking for a disease preventative, a way to clean your pet and his bedding or deal with illness and injuries, it can help you.

It is a very inexpensive, easy to make and use alternative to pharmaceutical antibiotics, and it is much more effective at stopping preventing and treating diseases in animals.ore effective at stopping preventing and treating diseases in animals.

Colloidal Silver Knocks Out Deadly Canine Parvo Virus

For example, one of the deadliest and most feared viruses among dog and kennel owners is canine parvo.  But, colloidal silver is a well-known alternative treatment for dogs suffering from parvo, and according to pet owners it has saved a lot of lives.  On the other hand, conventional veterinary treatments fail because they only have antibiotics, which do nothing to stop viral infections.  Yet, they prescribe them in cases of canine parvo and about 80% of the time, the dog dies.

It is Safe for Cats

Colloidal silver is also good for treating cats because it does not have a strong odor and will not be harmful to them if you put it on their fur.  In cases where a cat suffers from a bacterial, viral or fungal skin condition, colloidal silver can be used.

While many essential oils are effective in combating such conditions and are often safe to use on dogs, they should never be used on cats.  But, experts say you can use colloidal silver without fear.

Topical and Oral Treatments

Colloidal silver is an excellent alternative to both pharmaceutical antibiotics and prescription or over-the-counter anti-fungal treatments for cats and dogs.  It can be given to your pet in his food or water or applied to his skin or fur a few times a day.

A few drops of colloidal silver on a cotton ball makes an excellent eyewash for pets with eye infections.  Persian cats are especially prone to such infections and must have their eyes washed daily.  Using colloidal silver provides extra antibiotic protection.

One or two drops of colloidal silver in the ears of a cat or dog with an ear infection is a safe, fast and effective way to safely treat them.  There’s no need for a trip to the veterinarian or expensive pharmaceuticals.  A few drops of colloidal silver can do the job in a day or two.

More Ways to Keep Pets Healthy with Colloidal Silver

Many people like to brush their dogs’ teeth. Colloidal silver can be applied directly into a pet’s mouth to help reduce bacteria, heal oral tissues and keep the gums and teeth clean. For dogs, it can also be added to homemade tooth powders and rinses.

Whether your pets live indoors or outdoors, they will be healthier and cleaner and so will you when you use colloidal silver.

Keep your pet’s bedding clean and free of bacteria and parasites when you regularly spray it with undiluted colloidal silver and allow it to air dry.

One or two tablespoons of colloidal silver in your pet’s food or water dish will keep his immune system strong and help prevent disease.

Preserve opened cans and containers of pet food in the refrigerator and make it last a few days longer by adding a few drops of colloidal silver to it.

If your pet is injured, spray or dab colloidal silver on the wound. If possible, bandage it until it heals.

Your dogs and cats are part of your family. Care for them like family members with colloidal silver and protect them from unnecessary visits to the veterinarian. Your cats and dogs will be healthier and live longer.

How to Learn More About Colloidal Silver Uses

It is important to use colloidal silver responsibly. There is a lot of controversy about safe doses because there are no official established guidelines as there are for most other nutritional supplements. Fortunately, an excellent, free 16-page report helps to answer this question, “What’s the ‘Safest’ Daily Dosage for Colloidal Silver.” It is available exclusively from The Silver Edge.

The author of this report, natural health journalist Steve Barwick, has done extensive research on colloidal silver. He, also, wrote the 547-page, “Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual,” a veritable compendium of information on this subject, which also gives you appropriate dosages and uses for colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver – healing benefits

Ten ways to use colloidal silver’s amazing healing abilities

by PF Louis

Colloidal silver is available from : www.biosil.co.za

silver

(NaturalNews) Colloidal silver consists of silver atoms suspended in distilled ion-less water. The particles of silver are small enough to penetrate on a cellular level and destroy pathogens of all types, including bacteria, fungal spores, parasites, and viruses.

Not only does silver get rid of pathogens, it helps promote rapid healing of the tissues infected or destroyed. Most burn centers use various forms of silver and silver soaked bandaging for burn victims.

You can buy colloidal silver online or in good health food stores or make your own cheaply and easily. Colloidal silver has many applications and is easy to apply. It has no adverse side effects. It leaves beneficial bacteria intact. Reports of argyria (skin turning blue) are greatly exaggerated.

The Medical Mafia has a tendency to blow up rare incidents of minor adverse effects from natural remedies and blow them up as scare tactics while ignoring the hundreds of thousands of annual adverse side effects from correctly prescribed pharmaceuticals.

Ten ways to use colloidal silver for self healing

1) You can spray it onto burns to prevent infections and promote faster healing without scarring.

2) You can also spray or dab it onto ringworm, boils, herpes sores, and warts for faster healing.

3) If you’re having bronchial problems or walking pneumonia, you can put some colloidal silver in a nebulizer and breathe it into your bronchial area and lungs directly.

4) Small amounts taken daily as a tonic will give what some call a second immune system to guard against flues and colds. Easy and inexpensive if you make if you make your own.

5) Colloidal silver drops can be used for ear infections without any harmful side effects. Some use it for eye and nasal infections as well. Perhaps it can be injected anally with an enema bulb to help cleanse the colon.

6) It can be applied topically for vaginal yeast infections or oral thrush (yeast infection). Could be useful for chronic jock itch as well.

7) Colloidal silver can be used by pregnant women to assist fetal development and easier delivery of the newborn child.

8) It can be taken early with the onset of a cold, flu, or bronchitis to get over it quickly without harming beneficial bacteria. Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria.

9) Colloidal silver can be used successfully to combat MRSA infections. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a staph infection that can be fatal and is now resistant to antibiotics. It usually occurs during hospital stays, but has become rampant enough to originate outside hospitals (http://www.naturalnews.com/023712_MRSA_Texas_infections.html).

10) There has been some success using colloidal silver with AIDS patients. It adds a layer of needed additional immunity while destroying existing pathogens.

More about colloidal silver

Early 20th Century western medicine used silver as a prime antibiotic and anti-fungal until the 1930s. Then antibiotics became a major source of Big Pharma revenue.

As more and more antibiotics were created, the pathogenic microbes began evolving into resistant strains to them. The health dangers imposed by antibiotics by destroying friendly gut flora needed for digestion and immunity were disregarded.

Antibiotic use lowers immunity by destroying the good bacteria along with the bad. Lately, some fluoroquinolone based antibiotics have even permanently and painfully crippled those who had been prescribed them (http://www.naturalnews.com).

Since silver seems to act by stifling the enzymes pathogens use for survival, pathogens are unable to develop resistance to them. Fortunately, alternative medicine has re-discovered colloidal silver for healing all sorts of ailments. A few years ago, the EU banned colloidal silver sales (http://www.naturalnews.com/027989_colloidal_silver_superbugs.html).

Before Codex regulations arrive here, purchasing your own system for making colloidal silver would be a wise move.

Colloidal Silver Beauty Secrets

Make Your Own Natural Health and Beauty Products Using Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver for Natural Health and Beauty

by Angela Kaelin

Health and beauty aids are important not only to physical health, but to mental health. When we look and smell good, we feel good. The health and beauty industry takes in hundreds of millions of dollars every year, and their commercial beauty aids represents a substantial expense for many people.

Besides being a drain on your wallet, research has shown that some of the ingredients commonly found in these high-priced commercial beauty products — such as aluminum, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium fluoride and dioxins — can pose serious health risks.

Completely avoiding all of them may not be practical or even possible, but colloidal silver provides some ways to ease your body’s toxic burden by providing a healthier alternative for some of the most common commercial beauty products.

Here are a few ways colloidal silver can provide a healthier alternative and save you money. You’ll be amazed to find that colloidal silver combined with some common items that you may already have in your cabinets or that you can cheaply and easily obtain from your local health food store, can actually do a better job than anything you’ve ever used before!

All of the following recipes are very simple. The essential oils recommended are only those considered very safe, but for the sake of additional safety, don’t get any of these products into your eyes. They are all relatively inexpensive and available at health food stores.

Colloidal Silver Aftershave

This recipe is ideal for men with stiff beards who are inclined to getting bumps and ingrown hairs. Colloidal silver helps to soothe and heal any bumps or scratches. Witch hazel is a natural astringent that tightens the pores, moisturizes without being oily and can greatly benefit skin that’s prone to acne.

2 ounces of distilled water
2 ounces of colloidal silver
4 ounces of witch hazel (available at any department store, drug store, or health food store).
6-8 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)

Blend these ingredients in a bottle. Shake well before each application.

Healing and Detoxifying Mask for Men and Women

Women are much more accustomed to using detoxifying masks, and know the immediate positive results they can provide.

But, this simple mask is also recommended for men who may be having problems with ingrown hairs, bumps or blackheads.

It’s great for anyone who wants to gently exfoliate and detoxify their skin.

Here’s how to do it:

Blend old-fashioned oatmeal to a fine powder in a blender.

Put 1/4 cup of powdered oatmeal in a bowl.

Add 2 to 3 tbsp. of colloidal silver and blend into a paste with a spoon.

When you have a thin paste, apply this mixture to your face and neck. Let it remain for 10 to 15 minutes.

Bonus Tips: For increased detoxification, you can add a tbsp. of bentonite clay (available at health food stores) to the above recipe. This will help remove blackkheads, pimples, etc., and pull toxins from your pores. You may have to add a little extra colloidal silver if you choose to add the clay.

For moisturizing and skin-tightening benefits, add 1 tbsp. of honey to the above recipe.

Underarm and Personal Deodorant Spray

Many people are very sensitive to the ingredients in commercial antiperspirants and deodorants. If you’re sensitive or just want an alternative to dangerous aluminum-containing antiperspirants, try thoroughly mixing the following ingredients in an 8 to 12 oz. spray bottle:

2 – 3 ounces of colloidal silver
6 – 9 ounces of distilled water
8 to 10 drops of lavender oil
8 to 10 drops of rosemary oil
8 to 10 drops of sage oil

Sage has a light action as a natural antiperspirant. Perspiration odors on the skin are produced by bacteria. Colloidal silver works as an excellent antibacterial and is extremely beneficial to the skin as well.

Rosemary and lavender are not only aromatic, but they have profound soothing and healing properties, too.

Shake this mixture well before each application.

Healthy Feet Soak

Sweet-smelling feet are healthy feet. If your poor, tired feet spend long hours in hot shoes, they need special treatment in order to maintain your health.

Treating your feet to this colloidal silver soak not only keeps dangerous fungal infections away, but it soothes the feet and helps your whole body to relax.

Ladies, this is an excellent after-work soak or pre-pedicure treatment.

Combine the following in a little tub or pan that you can fit your feet into.

1 qt. water
6-8 ounces of colloidal silver
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup Epsom salts or baking soda
20 drops of peppermint essential oil
20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

Soak your feet for 15 or 20 minutes. Then dry feet and toes, thoroughly.

All-Natural Minty Flavored Mouthwash

Commercial mouthwashes are not safe products. Just the alcohol content alone in most of them can cause serious problems, including oral cancer.

You can use colloidal silver by itself as a safe, simple and inexpensive mouthwash. It stands on its own. But, if you insist on that “fresh minty taste” and want to make your own minty all-natural mouthwash, try combining the following ingredients in a bottle.

6 ounces distilled water
2-4 ounces colloidal silver
10-15 drops of peppermint oil or spearmint oil

Sometimes these two oils are available in the baking section of your grocery store. Or you can find them in just about any good health food store. They’re very inexpensive.

Like colloidal silver, both of these essential oils have natural anti-bacterial properties. Spearmint also has a reputation for healing gums and whitening teeth.

Shake this mixture well before each use.

Staying Healthy While Stretching Your Dollars

These are just a few of the many ways colloidal silver can help you stretch your dollars while providing you with some of the very best all-natural personal care products you’ll find, anywhere.

Hollywood stars who are into natural health often end up paying through the nose to have all-natural recipes just like these made for them through local apothecaries. Yet they are extremely simple and inexpensive to make yourself.

Don’t forget to share them with friends and family!

Using Colloidal Silver around the house

 

Everyone knows you can use colloidal silver in your eyes to eliminate eye infections like Pink Eye or styes. And you can use it in your ears to eliminate earaches, as well as in your nasal passages to eliminate sinus infections.

You can even spray it into your throat, or gargle with it, to eliminate sore throats. Most people also know you can drink it – in small quantities – to alleviate stomach infections, candida yeast infections, colds, flu, upper respiratory infections and more.

But did you realize it also has many non-medical purposes? Here’s a brief list of helpful non-medical household and personal uses you might want to make note of…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com

There are tons of effective ways to use colloidal silver around the house, to disinfect and help keep your family healthy and infection-free.

And among these are some very unusual uses you’ve probably never thought of.

Here are just a few you might want to make note of for future reference, or start implementing around your home even now:

  • Spray colloidal silver on pools of standing water in the yard, in order to stop mosquito larva from hatching.
  • Add colloidal silver to juices and milk to prolong shelf-life and help prevent early spoiling, fermenting, deteriorating, clabbering or curdling.
  • Add colloidal silver to bottled water tank reservoirs, to prevent algae and bacterial growth.
  • Add colloidal silver to shampoos, lotions and creams to give them disinfectant and antimicrobial qualities.
  • Spray colloidal silver on your underarms as an odor-fighting substitute for potentially toxic commercial underarm deodorants.
  • Spray colloidal silver under sinks, cabinets, or other moist places to help prevent and eliminate fungus and mold.
  • Spray colloidal silver on seasonal clothing before storage to eliminate odor and mildew.
  • Spray colloidal silver in the car to eliminate odors.
  • Use colloidal silver in dental water-pic solutions to prevent bacterial buildup (and help stop plaque, to boot).
  • Use colloidal silver routinely in your laundry final rinse water, to disinfect, and to add antimicrobial protection to sheets, pillow cases, towels, dish rags, baby diapers, etc.
  • Spray colloidal silver on hunting clothes, before a hunting trip, to help eliminate the human scent.
  • Spay colloidal silver on bowls of dry pet food (especially outdoors) to help prevent it from molding in humid climates.
  • Spray colloidal silver on houseplants or garden plants to help prevent the growth of parasites, fungi, molds, and to help stop root rot and most plant diseases.
  • Spray colloidal silver inside the refrigerator, and in the food storage bins, to prevent the spread of mold and bacteria.
  • Spray colloidal silver onto pet bedding and allow it to air dry, in order to prevent the spread of mold, mildew and germs.

OUTfection?

Learn about OUTfection vs. INfection

with this graphic explanation!

The picture below is a electron micrograph of a neutrophil, a white blood cell, gathering up mycelial forms of yeast, like Candida Albicans. The white blood cells are garbage collectors of microforms NOT soldiers of an army going out to war to destroy invading microforms. Germs are born in us and from us. The germs of the air cannot cause any specific disease but can contribute to a state of cellular congestion or internal pollution. All, so-called infections are in reality out-fections of body cells breaking down into microforms as a result of an increase in dietary and/or metabolic acids. Germs are the symptoms of celluar breakdown NOT the cause of cellular breakdown. The key to a healthy body is to maintain the alkaline design of the body fluids. WHY? Because all body cells are only as healthy as the environment they reside in and healthy body cells live in an alkaline environment. Therefore true immunty is protecting the alkaline body cells with an alkaline environment. Which means there is NO NEED for vaccination because all vaccines are highly toxic or acidic and GERMS (including viruses, bacteria, yeast and mold) do NOT cause disease. ACIDS cause disease.
