Colloidal silver is a suspension of metallic silver particles in a colloidal base. These submicroscopic particles measure between 1 and 100nm. This is the same type of precious metal that is used in jewelry, silverware and dental fillings.
Colloidal silver has been used to treat medical conditions since 4000 B.C. Ancient civilizations discovered silver’s ability to disinfect.
Colloidal silver wasn’t rediscovered until the late 1800s and became a popular medical treatment in America. Before antibiotics, colloidal silver was used as a cure-all for just about any condition or disease.
Colloidal silver can kill certain germs by binding to and destroying proteins. It kills viruses, bacteria and fungi without damaging the surrounding healthy cells.
Colloidal minerals and elements are insoluble and are too large to penetrate the cells of the body, thus trapping them in the bloodstream. Unable to penetrate the cells, the silver flows in the bloodstream and comes into contact with microorganisms, kill them and make colloidal silver very beneficial in its capacity.
Usually, colloidal silver is taken orally as a dietary supplement but can also be injected or applied to the skin.
A topical antibiotic, colloidal silver has been used to treat acne, burns, eye infections, throat infections and skin infections.
In past years, manufacturers have claimed that colloidal silver is a cure-all and can be effective against serious conditions and diseases including:
- Infectious diseases
- Chronic fatigue
Colloidal silver becomes complicated because it tends to have difficulty finding their way out of the body after their function. This behavior is indicative of colloidal silver.
Colloids are too large of molecules to be used effectively by the body. A detox is necessary to prevent the accumulation of colloidal particles or minerals in the tissues of the joints.
Anything the body can’t get rid of will be stored in any available area in the body such as the joints and the female reproductive tract, a very spacious area for the collection of waste. It can accumulate in the spleen, liver, bone marrow, lungs, muscles and skin.
Overexposure of medicinal silver Lesions of the kidney and lungs, as well as arteriosclerosis have been attributed to industrial and medicinal silver exposure.
It has been found to build up in the body’s tissues for several years. This can result in a condition called argyria in which silver salts deposit in the skin, eyes, nails, gums and internal organs, and the skin turns blue-grey.
Typically, argyria isn’t a serious health condition but it can cause cosmetic concerns because the skin remains discolored long after the consumption of silver products.
Colloidal silver is a mineral that isn’t essential for the function of the human body. There are many natural herbs and oils that have the same function as colloidal silver. These products include:
- Echinacea root
- Goldenseal root
- Pau D’Arco
- Antifungal herbs
- Essential Oils
- Tea Tree
If detoxification is necessary to remove colloidal silver, then a full detox may be more effective at everything including the function of colloidal silver.
These organic herbs and essential oils penetrate the cells. Consuming herbs and essential oils can provide nutrition, enhanced oxygen, enzymes, high frequency and many other beneficial properties.
Many essential oils are not intended for oral consumption. Please use safety and caution when using these products.
