Health Benefits of Colloidal Silver
Colloidal silver is a broad spectrum anti-microbal and immune system enhancing supplement. It provides the human body with silver, a necessary trace mineral. It supports health, not only as an alternative to drugs, but as a safe disinfectant.
It has a long history of usage as a preservative and until 1938, it was in common usage. Despite attempts to discredit colloidal silver, it is used as a nutritional supplement by millions of people on the North American continent and it has been the subject of numerous scientific studies around the world.

Silver is a naturally occurring trace mineral, however, because of modern farming methods that have depleted the soil, silver is almost non-existent in the modern American food supply. Supplementing with colloidal silver provides this trace mineral, necessary to the protection and functioning of healthy cells.
According to John W. Hill in his book, "Colloidal Silver: Medical Uses, Toxicology and Manufacture," the mineral silver has a long history of use. He says, "The Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and others used silver vessels for water and other liquids to keep them fresh." The medicinal properties of medicine were recognized by the alchemists, who were constantly criticized by the doctors of their day for their consumption of minerals.
But, by the late 19th century, allopathic physicians began using silver compounds in their medical practice. Although, it must be noted that these were not always safe substances because when silver binds with other types of molecular particles, it creates completely different compound substances.
Pure, unadulterated colloidal silver nanoparticles have a positive electric charge. When ingested or inhaled through a nebulizer, silver nanoparticles enter the bloodstream and, thus, the tissues and cells of the body. Silver particles protect cells from the invasion of viruses. They attack bacteria, fungi and other single-celled organisms, by magnetizing to the outside surface and interfering with their respiration.
Colloidal silver is a proven killer of bacteria. It is a far more efficient antibiotic than any allopathic pharmaceutical, leaving no anti-biotic resistant mutations behind. In a 1999 study conducted by independent researchers at Brigham Young University, once published on the Internet and referenced in an article by Lois M. Collins in Deseret News, May 16, 2000, showed that colloidal silver was effective in killing 650 bacteria in less than five minutes, at most, in concentrations of five to six parts per million (ppm). This study is one of the most frequently cited because of the broad range of bacteria that was included in the research. No further research was possible by the department as it was unable to secure a government grant, in spite of the results of this study, which were no doubt a startling revelation to the world of allopathic medicine.
This was not new information to colloidal silver users, however, who have found that this mineral has corrected a wide variety of bacteria-related illnesses as well as number of diseases defined as "syndromes" by allopathic doctors who remain mystified by the multiplicity of causes and symptoms involved. Many of these causes and symptoms are addressed by the scientifically known, broad spectrum, antimicrobal and restorative properties of colloidal silver.
Staphylococcus aureus, salmonella, enterobacter, bacterial pneumoniae and streptococcus are among the most common bacteria that colloidal silver eliminates. It has the power to kill emerging strains of bacteria, which are iatrogenic in origin, often the result of the inefficiency of pharmaceutical bacteria and the tendency of bacteria to mutate and become resistant to these drugs.
An example of this is the effect that colloidal silver has on iatrogenic Community Acquired Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA MRSA). This mutant strain of Staph is a deadly threat to patients in dirty hospitals. In an October 2006 study by Souza, Mehta, Leavitt of the Department of Microbiology/Molecular Biology of Brigham Young University, published in Current Science, Vol. 91, No. 7, October 10, 2006, it was demonstrated that multiple-drug resistant bacterial strains, like MRSA, are destroyed by colloidal silver nanoparticles.
In a similar fashion, colloidal silver interferes with the respiration of a variety of fungi, yeasts and molds. It has both internal and topical applications and can be sprayed inside and outside the home to safely eliminate these pathogens.
Colloidal silver is also an anti-parasitic. It works by attacking bacteria when they are in their egg-producing stages. Colloidal silver nanoparticles bind with the cell walls of single-cell organisms and inhibits their respiration.
Dr. Hulda Clark, Ph.D., N.D., the author of the book, "The Cure for All Diseases," cites parasitic infections, little recognized or understood by allopathic physicians, as the cause for many diseases in humans. When parasitic infections are eliminated, many human diseases and syndromes disappear.
It has applications for farming, gardening, household disinfection, pet and livestock disinfection and human health. It can safely be used both topically and internally. Colloidal silver is especially useful for preventing the cross-contamination of humans with animal parasitic infections.
Colloidal silver kills a broad spectrum of viruses. It is effective against even the most feared and deadly viruses, which are unaffected by allopathic antivirals or other treatments.
Most notably, colloidal silver has been shown, both scientifically and anecdotally, to kill HIV, AIDS, strains of Hepatitis and even emerging strains of flu viruses. Otherwise hopeless cases have been restored to health. Sometimes this is done solely through the use of ingested or inhaled colloidal silver. But, some therapies in countries outside the U.S. have successfully employed an injected form of pure silver nanoparticles.
Because colloidal silver provides the body with a necessary trace mineral and because it possesses the aforementioned antimicrobal properties, it enhances the functioning of the immune system and has a positive effect on overall human health. Colloidal silver users unanimously report an improvement in overall health and a resistance to common viruses.
Colloidal silver has been shown to be effective, at least, anecdotally against disease that is associated with immune system malfunction. This includes skin disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, epstein-barr, and a variety of other conditions. The primary reason that most people take colloidal silver is to elevate the functioning of the immune system and to make their bodies more resistant to disease.
Properly manufactured, pure colloidal silver is generally non-toxic. The only exception is those sensitive individuals who are allergic to silver and cannot wear silver jewelry. Colloidal silver nanoparticles do not accumulate in the tissues, but are passed through the body. A standard dosage for the average human being is 1 to 2 tablespoons per day.
