SILVER – COLLOIDAL
All that glitters may not necessarily be gold.
Silver – known to many, has been around for a long time. Most of us know it as what ‘silver coins’ were made of. However, Silver has been used medicinally for more than 2,000 years, and, has played an important role in safeguarding human health. Hippocrates, the “father of medicine,” wrote that silver had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties, such as keeping the immune system strong, repairing tissue and healing wounds.
The pioneers of the old west – here on the American continent, put Silver dollars into their milk pails and storage containers to keep the milk from going sour or bad.
The following are noted ways that Colloidal Silver may be used.
- Antibacterial – In the 1980’s it was documented by Larry C. Ford, MD that over 650 different disease-causing pathogens were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) recently reported “that more than 2 million people in the U.S, suffer illness every year as a result of antibiotic-resistant infections and 23,000 die from these infections. COLLOIDAL Silver’s ability to control antibiotic-resistant superbugs is astonishing.
- Wound Care/Skin Health – Colloidal Silver stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues. In a Research article by Pharmacognosy Communications in 2012, it says that ‘Colloidal Silver preparations should be considered for topical use to treat burns, thrush, periodontitis, psoriasis, eczema, and other conditions such as ringworm – because colloidal silver is anti-fungal.’
- Pink Eye/Ear Infections – Pink eye is an inflamed mucous membrane that covers the eyeball and eyelid lining. It is usually caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Colloidal Silver promptly acts against these infections. Ear infections may also be caused by different classes of bacteria and can even be fungal. Colloidal Silver is effective to use for these infections and is effective regardless of what may be causing the infection.
- Antiviral – Dr. Martin Hum, (the Institute for Optimum Nutrition) lists Colloidal Silver as one of the natural remedies to stop viruses fast.” It works as an antiviral for HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, herpes, shingles and warts and the Hepatitis C virus.
- Anti-Inflammatory – Colloidal Silver is also a great anti-inflammatory remedy. Research for this case in point was done by studying the effects of inflammation on the inflamed skin of pigs. Treated with colloidal silver, the pigs experienced near-normal skin after 72 hours of treatment. The NIH (National Institute of Health) reports that “research is beginning to reflect what many people have known anecdotally for years – that colloidal silver can reduce swelling, speed healing, and boost cell recovery.”
- Sinusitis – last but not least, colloidal silver is widely used to control sinus infections as a nasal spray (published in the International Forum for Allergy and Rhinology). It can also be used to kill Staph aureus when you add a few drops of silver in a ‘neti pot’ or by applying it directly into your nasal cavity and letting it drain down your throat.
I have been using Colloidal Silver for years. I make my own. You can purchase kits for this purpose. I vouch for all the above uses. It is, in my opinion, truly, a natural miracle drug…so to speak. When I feel a cold coming on, I drink an 8 oz. glass per day – cold symptoms gone in a flash. I washed an area of my body with colloidal silver water, where I had been bitten by a brown recluse spider. I then doused the bite with garlic oil, another natural antibiotic before I covered it with a gauze bandage. The doctor was amazed at how quick the bite area healed. He said I should have been dead, especially since I never went to see him about what was wrong until 3 weeks after I had been bitten.
I am a true believer in natural healing. I hope you can be one too.
