Colloidal Silver

The Wonder Cure Time Forgot

Questions and Answers

Q. Why Haven't We Heard About Colloidal Silver Before?
A. Prior to 1938, colloidal silver was administered in just about every way that modern drugs are administered today. The discovery of antibiotics and their introduction into medical practice was hailed as one of the most important events in the struggle against human infectious diseases. The antibiotic era began in earnest in the early 1940s, penicillin being the first antibiotic introduced into clinical practice. Discovery after discovery of effective anti-bacterial drugs then followed and optimism ran high in anticipation of the soon conquest of infectious disease. In 1969, the Surgeon General of the United States testified before congress that "the time has come to close the book on infectious diseases". Since that premature, overconfident assertion there has been a powerful resurgence of infectious diseases, beginning in the late 1970s; the single most threatening component of which has been the appearance of disease-causing bacteria which have become resistant to antibiotics. These bacteria have now clearly demonstrated their capacity to develop sophisticated mechanisms of resistance against almost every antibiotic invented thus far. What's more, according to the highly-respected infectious disease researcher Dr. Alexander Tomasz, "these resistance mechanisms can find their way from one bacterium to another through a variety of efficient microbial gene transfer mechanisms. Bacteria resistant to many of our drugs can also travel over large geographic distances and reach high incidence in certain parts of the world. A bacterial pathogen resistant to all chemotherapeutic agents is no longer science fiction." Because of this, Silver is now making a comeback and that is why you may be just now hearing about it.

Q. What is Colloidal Silver?
. Colloidal Silver is made of .001 micron particles of pure 99.999 fine silver suspended in distilled water. It is tasteless and colorless.

Q. Is Colloidal Silver something new?
. The properties of silver have been known for centuries. In ancient civilizations, the wealthy stored their water in silver vessels to keep bacteria from growing. Similarly, American settlers often put a silver dollar in milk containers to delay its spoilage.

It was not until the late 1800's that Western scientists were able to prove what had been known in Eastern medicine for thousands of years… that silver was a proven germ fighter! After learning that the body's chief fluids were colloidal in nature, the endless possibilities which could occur from the use of colloids in medicine were recognized. As a result, a silver solution known as Colloidal Silver became widely used in medicine as one of the main-stays of anti-microbial treatment.

Throughout the early 1900's Colloidal Silver rapidly gained recognition as one of the best infection-preventive agents, but unfortunately its use was short lived. The high cost of silver combined with the fact that silver solutions could not be patented, motivated the development of more profitable and more potent infection-fighting drugs. Silver was put on the back burner while the powerful new antibiotic drugs became the choice of medical treatment. But serious problems developed. Thirty years after the discovery of antibiotics, many types of bacteria once susceptible to these drugs had built an immunity to their action.

Silver's comeback in medicine began in the 1970's. Now, the technology exists to properly manufacture Colloidal Silver, and at a much more economical price.

Q. What does Colloidal Silver do?
. Colloidal Silver acts as a powerful, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent. An ordinary antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver is known to be effective against over 650 disease -causing organisms. They cannot live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver.

Q. Why would I want to use Colloidal Silver?
. It doesn't cause any known side-effects. It has no toxicity and is effective when other antibiotics have lost the battle due to the "super bugs". It is safe for any age, and has a multitude of applications.

Q. How do I use Colloidal Silver?
A. The uses seem to be endless. As it is in a liquid form, it is great as a first aid spray on cuts, sores, burns, and insect bites; it can be taken orally to help with gum and dental problems, as well as many other disease conditions; it can be inhaled into the lungs and/or sprayed into the nose; it can be dropped into the eyes; for animals, it can be administered with a syringe down the throat or added to their drinking water; and for house plants and gardens, Colloidal Silver can be added to soil water or sprayed diluted on the leaves.

Q. What concentration of Colloidal Silver is effective?
. In lab tests it has been shown that 3 - 5 ppm is very effective and the smaller the size of the silver particles, the better.

Q. How effective is Colloidal Silver?
. Colloidal Silver has tremendous antimicrobial power. Its success has been documented and more and more health professionals and individuals are utilizing colloidal silver's properties to reduce the length and severity of infectious disorders. "We have had instant success with Colloidal Silver and immune compromised patients." Dr. Evan M., Kansas

Q. Is silver being used today by science?
. Yes. Silver is used by the Soviets to sterilize recycled water aboard their space station. NASA selected a silver water system for the space shuttle. Silver is being used in 70% of the burn centers in the U.S. And we see companies developing technologies which use silver to purify the air and water.

Q. What do health professionals say about Colloidal Silver?
. Dr. Henry Crooks found that silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. From his bacteriological experiments with silver he concluded, "I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes." (Use of Colloids in Health-Disease)

Dr. Leonard Keene Hirschberg, A. M., M. D. (John Hopkins) states, "Speaking generally, the colloidal metals are especially remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states."

Dr. Richard L. Davies, executive director of the Silver Institute, which monitors silver technology in 37 countries, reports: "In four years we've described 87 important new medical uses for silver. We're just beginning to see to what extent silver can relieve suffering."

"What we have actually done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, which had been known for centuries… When antibiotics were discovered, clinical uses for silver as an antibiotic were discarded" comments Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. His research indicates that the presence of the silver ion may help to regenerate tissue, eliminate old or cancerous cells, and any other diseased or abnormal condition.

Q. What does the FDA say?
. The FDA considers Colloidal Silver a pre-1938 drug. A letter from the FDA dated September 13, 1991 states, "These products may continue to be marketed without submitted evidence of safety and effectiveness (required of all prescription drugs marketed after 1938) as long as they are advertised and labeled for the same use as in 1938 and as long as they are manufactured in the original manner." Colloidal Silver exceeds FDA recognized standards.

Q. Why don't doctors prescribe Colloidal Silver?
Some doctors do. The pharmaceutical companies today don't promote Colloidal Silver because they can't make money at it. With the technology today, anybody can make their own very cheaply.

Q. Does it interfere with other medications?
. No. Colloidal Silver does not interact with any other medications. It has been used with good results under the most demanding health care circumstances.

Q. People are having their silver fillings removed. Aren't they doing this because silver is toxic?
No. Some people are having their amalgam fillings removed because of the mercury content in the amalgam, not the silver. There is no evidence that silver or colloidal silver is toxic, while there is ample evidence that mercury is toxic.

Q. Don't I get silver in my diet?
. Under normal conditions we get silver and other minerals vital to health from the food we eat. But today, depleted soils as well as the use of pesticides and chemical additives in our foods - food irradiation, dyes, emulsifiers, thickening agents - can block our ability to get silver from the food we eat. Other means must therefore be used to insure an adequate intake of silver.

Q. Why should I make my own Colloidal Silver?
. Pure Colloidal Silver has a shelf life of about a month. You don't know how long a product from the store may have sat on the shelf before you purchase it. Colloidal Silver must be used in large quantities at times. Costs usually run between $22.00 and $60.00 for eight ounces from a health food store. If costs are low, as they are when you can make it yourself, you can use the amounts you need and actually see the product work for you.

"The April 1994 editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine called for urgent action, including surveillance for early signs of drug resistance and more disciplined use of antibiotics. Some specialists are now willing to admit that as infections become harder to successfully treat with drugs, our only real alternative may be more natural methods." Bio/Tech News

Q. What conditions has colloidal silver been effective on in the past?
Colloidal silver has tremendous anti-microbial power. Since there is not enough room to list all the diseases against which colloidal silver has been used successfully, here is a tiny sample: abscesses, acne, allergies, appen-dicitis, athlete's foot, rheumatoid arthritis, bladder inflammation, blood parasites and poisoning, bromidrosis in the axillae and feet, boils, bubonic plague, burns, cancer, candida, cerebro-spinal meningitis, chilblains, cholera, chronic eczema, chronic fatigue, colitis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, diabetes caused by infection, dysentry, ear (Menier's symptoms), fevers, gonorrhea, indigestion, infections both viral and fungal, inflammation, spring catarrh, hay fever, hemorrhoids, herpes, influenza, impetigo, irritation of the bladder, leucorrhoea, Lyme disease, enlarged prostate, pruritis, psoriasis, pustular excema of scalp, offensive discharge from chronic suppuration in otis media, scarlet fever, septic conditions in mouth (including pyorrhea), septicaemia, shingles, skin cancer, soft sores, sprue, staph infections, stomach ulcers, strep infections, syphillis, throat (tonsillitis), tinea versicolor, whooping cough, inhibits tooth decay and plaque build up, AIDS, and many, many others.

Q. What else do I need to know?
Colloidal Silver will not take the place of a healthy immune system. It does not directly stimulate or build it. With dietary supplements (i.e. multi-vitamins and minerals, garlic, Echinacea, vitamin C, Liquid Noni, etc.) and a good supply of pure drinking water, the body will be in an advantaged situation when some foreign threat comes along, hoping to invade the host. If something does get through the first line of defense, resulting in general discomfort or illness, Colloidal Silver can significantly reduce the length and severity of the attack, especially when used with appropriate supplements such as Noni Juice which is one of the best immune system builders known.

Q. What doesn't Colloidal Silver do?
It does not interact with any other medications or upset the stomach. It does not sting the eyes. Medical journal reports and documented studies spanning the past hundred years indicate no known side effects at all from oral or intravenous administration of colloidal silver in animal or human testing.

There is strong evidence that Colloidal Silver is effective against all agents used in biological warfare!
