More about Colloid and Colloidal Silver
A colloid is a solution in which one substance of microscopically dispersed, insoluble particles is suspended throughout another substance. Milk is usually mentioned as an example of a colloid. In the case of Colloidal Silver this other substance is pure water.
Colloidal silver (CS) is composed of microscopic particles of silver and silver ions dissolved in extremely pure distilled or deinonized water. This is done in a controlled electrical process. The concentration is extremely low and a 10 ppm (parts per million) strong product is usually the best to use. 10 ppm corresponds to 10 mg silver per liter of liquid, meaning that there is a meager 1 gram of silver in every 100 liters of CS.
What Makes Silver Ion the Most Effective Colloidal Silver Available in the Market?
The silver in Silver Ion is so finely dispersed that there are many billion units of silver ions and silver nano particles per cubic millimeter of water. The more finely dispersed the silver is, the larger the total area of the silver particles will be and therefore it is more efficient in neutralizing fungus, bacteria, virus and parasites. Silver in this form interact with the microorganisms and create an electrical and chemical blockage for these harmful microorganisms, rendering them suffocated and unable to multiply.
Moreover, the silver ions in Silver Ion carry a lot of nascent oxygen, up to 20 times their own volume, and help oxygenize the body and also help the body’s white blood cells create super oxide radicals – something the body uses to neutralize various forms of microorganisms. Thus, Silver Ion serves as a natural immunity booster, keeping various infections and diseases at bay.
Safe Dosage Guide
In therapeutic dosages, Silver Ion may be used in amounts of 100 ml taken over a day in several small doses. To get the best effect from oral consumption, keep the CS under your tongue for several minutes as the silver is absorbed sublingually from your mouth directly into your blood stream. The longer you can keep the CS in your mouth, the more effective it will be. Refer to the FAQ section for more details. Separate sections on the website cover the dosage guidelines for children and pets.
How to take Silver Ion?
Over the years, people using Colloidal Silver for treating various ailments have developed their own ways of maximizing its efficacy. Silver Ion may be taken orally, topically or through a nebulizer, a small medical device that creates a fine mist/vapor of the CS. The mist may be inhaled through the nostrils to effectively combat sinusitis and if it is inhaled through the mouth, it may help getting rid of cough and pneumonia. Through the use of a spray bottle, one can spray eyes, ears, throat, cuts and burns to mention a few areas of use. Refer to the Therapy section of the website for optimal dosage and administration guide for over 40 common diseases and ailments.
Medical Research & Scientific Uses Testify Colloidal Silver’s Safety
You often hear how people ignorantly claim that silver is a “toxic heavy metal”. This is completely incorrect. Most metals are actually by dentition, heavy metals. The term “Heavy metal” does not say anything about the metals’ toxicity, only about its weight. In fact, many chemists want to get rid of the term “heavy metal”, because it is nowadays almost exclusively used to scare people.
A recognized reference in the field of toxic metals, the Dartmouth Toxic Metals Research Program, writes about pure silver: “Unlike other metals such as lead and mercury, silver is not toxic to humans and is not known to cause cancer, reproductive or neurological damage, or other chronic adverse effects. Nor has normal day-to-day contact with solid silver coins, spoons or bowls been found to affect human health. This is because solid silver is almost completely biologically inert, and even if ingested, would pass through the human body without being absorbed into tissues.
- Silver has been used for treating bacterial infections and as a preservative of both water and wine since antiquity. In 400 BC, Hippocrates used silver powder on infected wounds.
- Silver has been used as a safe and effective water treatment agent for hundreds of years.
- More recently electrical systems that secrete silver ions into potable water that one wants to keep free from microorganisms have been developed.
- Large ships have since 1950s been equipped with silver ionizers which help to keep drinking water fresh and millions of crewmen and passengers have taken advantage of silver ions effective inhibition of microorganisms.
- Out in space, NASA chose silver ionizers for both the Apollo program in the 1960s and the space shuttle program that followed it.
- Similarly, did the Soviet Union in its space program.
To argue then that silver ions are not safe to use, is a slap in the face of science and proven experience. The place where you put safety first, is certainly in space programs! Silver has since ancient times been proven time and again that it is both effective and safe for higher organisms. Experience from all over the world proves that CS can be used for a multitude of things.
Vested Interests behind Colloidal Silver Bad Press
The blue skinned images of Paul Karason’s Argyria (an almost permanent blue skin disease) that has been littered across the Internet and mainstream media by anti colloidal silver propagandists sells half truth at best. Hardly any website carrying Paul Karason’s Argyria photo mentions that he made his own crude large particle colloidal silver and drank at least a pint and up to quart a day for years! Whereas the normal dosage is a teaspoonful of CS one to three times daily, depending on the severity of infection.
