To understand the power of silver as the world’s most safe and effective natural antibiotic, you need to know a few facts first.
Antibiotic-resistant germs are now considered epidemic in the United States, accounting for a growing number of serious infectious disorders. An ordinary antibiotic kills perhaps a half dozen different disease causing organisms, which, in turn, grow more and more resistive to antibiotic treatments. The Los Angeles Times stated already a few years back, “…in the last decade, a broad resistance to antibiotics has begun to emerge. And because bacteria can transfer genes among themselves, experts only expect the resistance to grow. The potential nightmare is an Andromeda strain, which is immune to all antibiotics and could wreak havoc.” Still another problem that has plagued the medical profession from the beginning with modern antibiotics has been that beneficial bacteria and organisms play various important, natural functions in the body. Antibiotics often play havoc with some friendly organisms, producing long lasting side effects that may be difficult to correct.
Silver has been a benefit to mankind’s health for thousands of years. It has been known to be a bactericide for at least 1200 years. In ancient times, it was known to prevent disease and it was said that disease could not be transmitted by drinking from a silver cup. In Ancient Greece and Rome, silver containers were used to store food and liquids to keep them fresh and free of disease. Pioneers of the American West would drop a silver dollar in the milk jug to prevent spoilage and put a silver dollar in the water trough to prevent disease. Eating utensils were made from silver, thus the name: silverware. The fact cannot be disputed: silver kills bacteria within six minutes of contact. Our ancestors knew the medicinal property of silver which is probably why they highly valued silver and used it as currency.
WHAT IS COLLOIDAL SILVER?
A colloid is a substance which consists of ultra-fine particles (such as silver) that are suspended in a medium, called the electrolyte (such as distilled water). The particles are so small, typically 0.01 to 0.001 of a micron in diameter (about four hundred thousandths to four millionths of an inch), that they will remain in suspension almost indefinitely, unaffected by the influence of gravity. A colloid of silver or, as it is more commonly called, colloidal silver, is a solution of extremely minute-sized silver particles suspended in water, with a positive electrical charge place on each silver particle.
The silver particles in colloidal silver contain a positive charge and are attracted to viruses, fungi, bacteria and other single celled pathogens (disease causing organisms) which contain a negative charge (opposites attract). When the silver particles attach themselves to these pathogens, they disable the pathogens’ oxygen metabolism enzyme. In other words, they suffocate and kill the bad guys. These pathogens don’t have a chance to develop resistant strains. Once the bad guy is dead, the silver particle releases its bond and searches for a new pathogen to attach to. The dead pathogens are then cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems.
Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial enzymes (good guys), colloidal silver leaves these tissue cell enzymes intact. One wonders how colloidal silver differentiates between the beneficial bacteria and the harmful disease causing organisms. Research shows that the beneficial bacteria in our bodies contain a positive charge, therefore, the positively charged silver particles are not attracted to the positively charged good bacteria. This makes colloidal silver absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.
Taken orally, colloidal silver is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then travels quickly to the body cells. For faster absorption, swish colloidal silver under your tongue for a few seconds before swallowing. When taken on a daily basis, in 3 or 4 days the silver will have accumulated in the tissues enough for benefits to begin. After ingesting colloidal silver, it circulates in the body for about a week or two before being eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel. A regular daily intake of colloidal silver is recommended to protect the body against dangerous pathogens.
Colloidal Minerals of The Health Factory are:
- Extremely small, even smaller than plant derived minerals and are therefore very well absorbed by by the human body.
- Non-toxic. Due to their small size they can pass organs and tissues and leave nothing behind for the immune system or digestive process to be considered a problem.
- Spherical in shape, making it work much faster and more effectively than other products in the market place.
- The shape of the particle is key to maximizing Zeta Potential. Zeta potential is the electrical charge surrounding each particle within the colloid. The electrical charge contains previously unrecognized healing properties. Maximizing Zeta Potential also means longer shelf life.
