I have been using colloidal silver for nearly 2 decades. During hard times many years back colloidal silver was the one medicinal product I kept using. It has seen me through sore throats, colds, skin wounds, sinus infections, tooth ache, dry eyes and I have used it for my child’s pink eye, eczema, flu as well as for my dogs general wellbeing. I love using it in a vase of cut flowers as it does help them to last longer.
What is colloidal silver?
Liquid silver is also known as colloidal silver. Using electrolysis, pure silver is suspended in distilled water. This liquid can then be used orally or topically.
Why is colloidal silver good for me?
Silver easily attaches itself onto oxygen molecules which helps with cellular respiration. Likewise, the silver and oxygen combination react with bacteria and viruses killing them off.
What are major benefits of colloidal silver?
According to Dr. Josh Axe colloidal silver can suffocate viruses, reduce inflammation, boost immunity and healing through speedy cellular recovery.
Over the past decade more scientific research has become available proving that colloidal silver is able to defeat antibiotic-resistant superbugs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 2 million people in the U.S. alone suffer annually as a result of antibiotic-resistant infections and of them 23000 die from these infections.
How can I use colloidal silver in my home?
Cuts, skin abrasions: 0.5 teaspoon applied directly to the skin. Apply 2 drops to plaster before applying to skin.
Eczema or psoriasis: 1 teaspoon applied directly to the skin for area of 1cmx1cm
Pink eye: 1 to 2 drops in the eye
Sinus: 1 spray into each nostril / 10 drops into a neti-pot before use.
Immune boost: 1 teaspoon in the mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. Repeat 3x daily for 2 weeks. Repeat every fortnight.
Sore throat: 1 tablespoon – gargle for 2 minutes then spit out. Repeat hourly.
for children, the elderly or pets, halve the dosage.
Disinfectant: 2 tablespoons into 1 litre of water to clean basins, toilets, mould or general areas.
Preserve bottled water: 1 tablespoon of colloidal silver per 1 litre of bottled water will keep the water healthy for a long time.
Are there side effects of colloidal silver?
There are no known side effects to true colloidal silver. You can test if your colloidal silver is the real thing by dissolving table salt in it. According to Natural Living Ideas, if the liquid turns a white milky or yellow colour then it is ionic silver which is not as powerful. True colloidal silver can last for years and after time you may see silver particles floating in the liquid which is quite normal.
What else should I know?
As colloidal silver is a potent antibacterial agent, ensure that you supplement with probiotics to maintain a proper balance of microflora.
Many experts recommend that colloidal silver is best stored in dark glass bottles, in order to prevent the light from oxidizing the silver particles.
The best way to test colloidal silver is to try it and experience the benefits first hand. (You may find it becoming a favourite in your first aid kit.) You can purchase colloidal silver here.
