Colloidal silver and its medicinal qualities have been known for the centuries. Before the advent of antibiotics and other medications, colloidal silver has been used as an antiseptic, internally as an antibiotic and as a means to boost the immune system.
Colloidal silver is a suspension of very small particles of silver in water. It is a smallest form of matter that can pass through the membrane walls so the body can easily absorb it.
Today, because of so many drug-resistant bacteria and germs, the use of colloidal silver as an antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral medicine is being explored more thoroughly.
How colloidal silver works
When colloidal silver finds itself near a single-cell pathogen like a virus, a bacterium or a fungus, it acts as a catalyst and disables the enzymes that those pathogens need for the metabolism of oxygen. As a result, they literally starve or choke to death. The pathogens get eliminated from the body through the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems, without causing any further damage to the body.
Therefore, colloidal silver acts as a broad-spectrum antibiotic. When consumed internally, it is collected more in spleen, liver, skin and adrenals and less in muscles and brain.
Studies have shown that colloidal silver has the ability to destroy more than 650 different pathogens in six minutes or less.
Colloidal silver usesColloidal silver can be used for common cold and flu and for other illnesses with flu-like symptoms. It can be taken internally or used as a spray for sore throat and nasal infections. It is also very beneficial against sinus infections.
It also treats effectively many gastrointestinal problems and diseases, like constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, food poisoning, diverticulitis, dysentery, gastritis and similar.
Bladder and urinary tract infections, for example cystitis, colitis, prostatitis, gonorrhea, can be treated with colloidal silver taken orally with non-chlorinated water.
As for the topical use of colloidal silver, it is a powerful antiseptic for cuts, scrapes, burns, and it is also recommended for skin conditions like dandruff, itchy scalp, yeast infections, eczema and psoriasis. It is also beneficial for people who are prone to acne.
A few drops of colloidal silver applied with a dropper straight to the eye solves certain eye problems like pink eye, conjunctivitis and septic eye conditions.
Colloidal silver can be used for sterilizing different items, from toothbrushes, needles, tweezers and similar personal items, to surgical instruments. If added to water used for traveling, it keeps it safe, and it also protects juice and milk from spoiling or curdling.
