Have you heard that your skin can turn grayish or blueish after using the natural antibiotic colloidal silver?  There have been very few instances of silver poisoning or argyria, where the skin becomes discolored, and most occurred long ago.  These scare-tactic stories primarily originate in the allopathic medical field.  The medical practitioners of the past used a different type of silver and injected it in very large doses that could turn the skin gray.  This is not the kind of colloidal silver used nowadays.

Silver is a natural part of our body.  We get silver and all minerals in the body through the food we eat.  Healthy soil with living organisms promotes the absorption of minerals into the plants, which we in turn assimilate when we eat.  If the soil is not healthy, if we cannot assimilate silver for some reason, or if, as the tissues age, we develop a silver deficiency and an impaired immune system, disease may result.  Since the early 1900's, soil depletion has seriously reduced all trace minerals, including silver, by 85%. 

Kings and queens were also called 'blue bloods' because of the silver content of their blood and the blueness of their skin. Royalty used silver plates, bowls and utensils almost exclusively when eating. Over a long period of time, they ingested large particles of silver that caused a permanent discoloration of the skin due to silver compound deposits. There is no danger of argyria happening today if using pure silver (99.999%) manufactured as a colloid at a small particle size consistent with what occurs naturally in the body, .001 microns.

Because of overuse of pharmaceutical antibiotics, thousands of people die every year from antibiotic-resistant diseases.  Fortunately, every dark cloud has a silver lining!   The March 1978 issue of Science Digest, in an article, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," reported: "Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop.  Colloidal silver is FDA Approved (not as an antibiotic that would be required to be prescribed by physicians, but as a mineral supplement), but it is rarely used by traditional medical doctors.

Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic." The article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher who worked with the late Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University's Department of Surgery in the 1970s: "Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have."  In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver.

How does it work?  The presence of colloidal silver near a fungus, bacterium, virus or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the lymphatic, immune, and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life.

Today's colloidal silver appears to protect the body's natural enzymes and stimulate new growth to replace damaged tissue -- it is completely safe, does not interact with other medications, has no side effects, is non-addictive, and does not accumulate in the body.  In fact, many of the colloidal silver preparations on the market today are not strong enough and therefore not as effective, having only very low potencies of 5 ppm-50 ppm.  According to many experienced holistic practitioners, in order to be effective, especially against a serious infection or disease, colloidal silver should have a much higher potency -- 250 ppm - 500 ppm. 

But the most crucial factor is particle size -- the silver particles should be no larger than .001 microns, as larger particles are less effective, can remain in tissues and cause bluing of the skin, and small particle size is necessary so that the colloidal silver can be absorbed rapidly into the blood before it can even reach the gut (swish around in the mouth first), thus it won't harm friendly bacteria in the intestines as pharmaceutical antibiotics do.  These potencies have been used safely on infants, the elderly, animals, and plants with no adverse reactions. 

Colloidal Silver is growing in use for pool treatment to avoid the bad side effects of chlorine, in agriculture to aid plant growth and development without the use of poisons to kill plant and ground fungi, and in industry to treat process water to kill fungi and bacteria.  You can purify a gallon of water in 6 minutes by adding 1/2 teaspoon of Colloidal Silver.

Colloidal Silver may be taken orally or put on a Band-Aid and applied directly to cuts, scrapes, open sores, warts or used as a rinse for acne, eczemas and other skin irritations. It may be gargled, dropped into eyes or ears, used vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs. 

If it's so great, people ask why they have never heard of colloidal silver before?
Seventy years ago, colloidal silver was widely used. Colloidal silver retailed for about $100.00 per ounce in the 1930's. Recent technology has brought the price down so that colloidal silver can now compete in the marketplace. Numerous articles in medical journals of colloidal silver can be found dating usually before 1940. New articles and data will soon be appearing as more doctors rediscover this safe and effective mineral solution.

Silver is also mentioned in the Bible where royalty carried water in silver vessels in the belief that this water would help them maintain their health. Before refrigeration, a silver dollar was placed in containers of milk to maintain freshness. Silver was the primary antibiotic used by the wealthy before the advent of penicillin in 1938.

Colloidal silver has been found effective against - Germs, Bacteria, infections, parasites, giardia, viruses, fungus and pathogens including: Allergies, Acne, Athlete's foot, Bladder infections, Inflammation, Blood Parasites, Blood-Poison, Boils, Bubonic Plague, Burns, Candide Yeast Infection, Chilblains, Cholera, Conjunctivitis, Cold Sores, Colitis, Cystisis, Dermatitis, Diabetes caused by infection, Diphtheria, Diarrhea, Dermatitis, Dysentery, Eczema, Fibrosities, Gangrene, Gonorrhea, Herpes, HIV Virus, Impetigo, Influenza, Indigestion, Intestinal Infections, Kreatitis, Leprosy, Leukemia, Lupus, Lymphangitis, Lyme Disease, Malaria, Meningitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Neurasthenic, Parasitic Infections (oral and fungal), Pneumonia, Pleurisy, Prostatitis, Priritis Ani, Psoriasis, Purulence, Ophthalmia, Rabbit Fever, Rhinitis, Rheumatism, Ring-worm, Rosacea, Scarlet Fever, Septic Conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, Sevorrhes, Shingles, Sinus Infections, Staph Infections, Strep Infections, Stomach Ulcer, Syphilis, Thyroid, Tonsillitis, Toxemia, Trachoma, Trench-Foot, Tuberculosis, Ulcers, All forms of Virus, Warts, Whooping Cough and Yeast Infections.

We recommend that the daily dose of colloidal silver 250 ppm at .001 microns for an adult be 1/2 teaspoonful in water, juice, or tea once a day (if using a lower potency (ppm), increase the dose as directed).  Take 2-3 times each day if illness is present.  Order Colloidal Silver or a Generator and make your own.
