History Of Colloidal Silver

Silver is a powerful, natural antibiotic that has been used for thousand of years, with no harmful side effects ever having being observed.

Great Grandma put a silver dollar in the milk to keep it from spoiling as it sat on the back porch in summertime. Also it is well known that the ancient Greeks knew the medical value of silver. It was observed that those ancient families ate from silver utensils rarely were sick and had few infections. This knowledge passed on to kings, emperors, sultans and their families and members of their royal courts. They ate from silver plates, drank from silver cups, used silver utensils and stored their food in silver containers. As a result of this use, silver was ever so slightly rubbed off and mixed in their food. And after a generation or two, they received the full benefit from the silver particles, which found their way into the body o these people, hence had little chance of getting any infectious illness.

These royals were called " Blue Bloods" because their skin had a blue tint, due to the accumulation of minute traces of pure metallic silver. The common red-blooded folk, however, ate from earthenware dishes with iron utensils and frequently were sick, whilst the royals enjoyed freedom from infectious disease as early as from birth. There are many historical references on Colloidal Silver. One of the most complete is published in " The Lancet" dated Dec. 12, 1914.

 

Colloidal Silver was in common use in America from the late 1800s until 1938. It was prescribed for a great variety of diseases and infections. There were none of today's antibiotics available, and Colloidal Silver was used for just about everything. But Colloidal Silver was relatively expensive back then, just as today's man made antibiotics are expensive.

 

Today, Colloidal Silver is rapidly gaining favour in the medical community, reflecting a kind of revival in the public health sector. Dr. Richard L Davies, executive director of the Utah Silver Institute, which monitors silver technology in 37 countries, reported in 1978: " In four years we have described 87 important new medical uses for silver. We are just beginning to see to what extent silver can relieve suffering and save lives".

Some contemporary references from which this information is drawn include Dr. Harry Margarf of the St. Louis University, Dr. Charles Fox of the Columbia University; Dr Carl Moyer, Dept. of Surgery at Washington University and the literature of Dr. Robert Becker- " The Body Electric" and "Crosscurrents" Other sources are listed in the references chapter of this booklet.

 

Colloidal Silver is the only antibiotic known reportedly to kill all types of viruses, funguses and bacteria. Colloidal Silver is also the only antibiotic known to be perfectly harmless to all parts of the body. Whilst the liver and kidneys can be harmed by other antibiotics, Colloidal Silver promotes healing.

 

Colloidal Silver is non-toxic to mammals, reptiles, plants and all living things that are not of a one celled structure. One-celled life uses a different method of Oxygen metabolism, herein lies its weakness. Since Colloidal Silver acts only as a catalyst, meaning, it influences a change in the rate, or occurrence of a reaction of one-celled organisms, but does not enter into any chemical reaction with the body tissues. The mere presence of Colloidal Silver near any virus, fungus or bacterium (one-celled disease causing pathogens) will immediately cripple their oxygen-metabolizing enzyme, or chemical lung, which suffocates and dies usually within six minutes. The dead organism is subsequently cleared out of the body by the immune and lymphatic system.

Each of the other man made antibiotics will kill only five or six types of germs. Increasingly more and more bacteria is becoming resistant to these antibiotics. These bacterium are commonly referred to as Super Bugs, however they are unable to form a resistance to Colloidal Silver which will kill not only the bacteria but also all forms of viruses, a feat no man made antibiotic has managed to date! A further draw back of all other antibiotics is that they will destroy a variety of the body's essential enzymes, but Colloidal Silver doesn't, disable or harm in any way the many different human body enzymes, as these enzymes are particularly different to the enzymes of single-celled life. Colloidal Silver actually promotes healing with less resulting scar tissue. No other antibiotic will do that.

 

There has never known to have been a silver/drug interaction of any kind. The allophatic prescription pharmaceuticals of today are no more likely to react with silver in the body than did the surprisingly powerful of herbs from which they were developed and used for thousands of years, right along with the silver. The chemical nature of silver is such that inside the body it behaves to as to form no compounds that are toxic, and when already in the colloidal and stabilized state is even further removed from any possibility of the tiniest of problems. Colloidal Silver simply does not react with anything in the body except a germs oxygen metabolizing enzyme.

 

Disease organisms can become resistant to regular antibiotics, triggering dangerous super-infections. Conventional antibiotics are industrially developed from toxins manufactured by other bacteria of their own defenses-penicillin being a prime example. Disease organisms in the body respond to this cultivated toxin of the conventional antibiotic at about the same rate as they do to the original organism. This is a long enough time that a mutation can, and often occur which will make the organism immune to the particular antibiotic.

Colloidal Silver is claimed to work relatively fast- mostly within six minutes or less, upon contact within the body- that these disease causing pathogens have no time to mutate into a resistant strain as such a mutation requires far longer than the time silver needs to kill the pathogen. In fact to date no pathogen or strain thereof, has ever been known to mutate and develop resistance to silver in several thousand years of the use of this remarkable substance. To sum up no one celled organism or plant will ever be able to develop immunity to silver.

 

Body tissues having 5 parts per million (5ppm) of Colloidal Silver will be free of virus, fungus and bacterium. Silver particles are long lived in the body because they do not enter into a reaction, but act catalytically. A catalyst is a best described as a substance that brings about, or causes a reaction or occurrence without itself participating or being consumed. The Colloidal Silver acts as a catalyst in disabling a particular enzyme, best described as " chemical lung", as it transfers oxygen and nutrients through the cell walls of the disease causing organism. The organism suffocates! The mere proximity of silver will cripple the activity of the particular enzyme common to all viruses, funguses and bacteria- whilst not affecting the enzymes of tissue type cells.

 

There have been no allergenic reactions to silver reported in recorded history of the medicinal use of Colloidal Silver, because Colloidal Silver only affects the rate and occurrence of a pathogens oxygen- metabolism activity as described in the foregoing section. However Colloidal Silver does not react chemically within the body. Over use of Colloidal Silver has only one effect that is called Argyria, which is the development of grey blue tinge of the fingernails and the skin. What happens here is simply that the body starts to store the excess silver in the tissue and collagen, which make up the major part of fingernails. This condition however has no known detrimental effect and will disappear once the Colloidal Silver intake is reduced or discontinued for a while.

 

Mitosis- the usual cell division in body tissue- is when two new, identical cells are formed. When Colloidal Silver is present in the body tissue, some of the divisions will be different. One duplicate cell and one dedifferentiated cell are formed. The dedifferentiated cell is like a baby cell that can change into any type of cell in the body. It will naturally migrate to a part of the body where there is tissue damage, where the cell changes to a local tissue cell, adding to the normal cell repair in the injured area and greatly lessening scar tissue formation. This accelerated healing benefit of Colloidal Silver was discovered by Robert O. Becker, MD and was reported in his book, " The Body Electric".
