Benefits of Colloidal Silver
Using Colloidal Silver as a Medicine.
I find the term "Colloidal" is sometimes rather loosely used to describe a wide range of products.
I use the terms "colloidal" and "ionic" interchangeably.
Anecdotal evidence for the effectiveness of ionic silver has suggested that it provides a "second" invisible immune system.
Whilst the effectiveness or otherwise of ionic silver for treating disease is a matter of great debate, the responses of thousands of users is overwhelmingly enthusiastic.
The following dose suggestions assume a silver content of around ten parts per million in colloidal suspension.
For Human Consumption, C.S. is administered in three ways :
Daily Supplement dose.
Those who use ionic silver as a mineral supplement generally take about one tablespoon of C.S. daily ( 15 ml.) in a glass of water first thing in the morning.
Taking colloidal silver in these small amounts on a daily basis is generally felt to be an illness preventative measure with no associated risks from use.
Many people use C.S. on a need only basis. Generally, 25 - 30 ml is considered one therapeutic dose.
How many doses are taken during a twenty four hour period is quite varied among users, and dependent on the symptoms being treated.
The quantity of doses range from 25 ml to 100ml taken daily.
Users that practice multiple doses usually take C.S. three to four times daily, feeling that this produces a sustained and cumulative effect throughout the period of use.
However, your liver will filter out the silver within about two hours so to maintain a therapeutic dose in your system, frequent small doses are recommended.
C.S. should be held in the mouth at least 30 seconds prior to swallowing.
The lining of the mouth is capable of absorbing the silver ions directly and the action of your saliva prepares the ions for transport through your body..
Gargling with full strength, ie, (5 - 10 PPM), C.S. has been found to be extremely effective in the treatment of throat related problems.
After gargling hold the colloidal in the mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing.
Using C.S. as a mouthwash has produced dramatic results in the treatment of mouth ulcers, sore and infected gums and other mouth related problems.
Many people use C.S. after brushing their teeth at night to prevent tooth decay overnight.
Simply hold the full strength (5 - 10 PPM) C.S. in the mouth for a minute or so before swallowing.
Topical (External) Use.
Colloidal silver is often used externally to address skin conditions and to reduce the spread of bacteria.
Many experienced users believe that the C.S. should be applied to the area via a dressing or bandage, and keep the bandage hydrated with colloidal silver.
Contra Indications :
Sometimes a new Colloidal Silver user who ingests Colloidal Silver for the first time will have the experience which is called the Herxheimer effect.
They will experience what feels like a cold or the flu (or diarrhea).
This can be stopped by cutting back on the dosage (or completely abstaining for a day or so).
This effect can be prevented by starting with a small dose (1/4 to 1 teaspoon twice a day) and gradually increasing the dosage.
Some people even find they need to start off at first with just a few drops.
Continued ingestion of high doses (more than 1 gram of accumulated silver, or 5 mg per day) of colloidal silver may result in Argyria, a permanent discoloration of the skin.
There are literally thousands of other essential uses for this odorless, nearly tasteless and colorless, totally benign, powerful, non-toxic disinfectant and healing agent.
You'll find that a spray or misting bottle of Colloidal Silver solution may be the most useful health enhancement tool in your environment.
