Colloidal Silver

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.

History

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.

Benefits

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.

Uses

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:

  • Cancer
  • AIDS
  • Infectious diseases
  • Parasites
  • Acne
  • Chronic fatigue

Health Risks

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.

Healthy Alternatives

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:

  • Botanicals
    • Echinacea root
    • Goldenseal root
    • Pau D’Arco
  • Herbs
    • Antiviral
    • Antibacterial
    • Antimicrobial
    • Antifungal herbs
  • Essential Oils
    • Ravensare
    • Manuka
    • Eucalyptus
    • Clove
    • Tea Tree
    • Lemon
    • Cinnamon

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.

    Q: Unfortunately, we never got a chance to begin the FULL BODY DETOX because the wound became badly infected and he was hospitalized and given large doses of i.v. Antibiotics to control the infection. After a week of this, he was discharged with an oral antibiotic, levaquin, to continue taking with also a wound-vac attached to the huge gapping hole in his leg. This machine sucks out the extra fluid and infectious material which, according to them, will assist in tissue regeneration thus closing and healing on its own without performing a 3rd surgery to try and close it. HERE LIES THE PROBLEM, as a result of the poisons, he's developed an oral thrush and a rash in his groin area. Keep in mind that before now, he's a man who would never take any drugs not even an aspirin and even refused the pain killers post surgery. One of your customer service reps advised to move forward with the FULL BODY DETOX 1st before I proceed to order the : CANDIDA BUSTER. He also advised to check with you on this approach. Additionally, what do you think of using a colloidal silver to assist with killing off any infectious bugs that may be lingering? He has discontinued the levaquin and all of their completely.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST BEGINNING WITH THE FULL BODY DETOX AND USING THE COLLOIDAL SILVER ONLY AFTER COMPLETING THE FULL BODY DETOX. ONE THING FOR SURE, HE HAS THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND. SOUNDS LIKE HE'LL BE ALL RIGHT IF HE PERFORMS THE NATURAL THINGS AND ENTIRELY LEAVE THE DRUGS ALONE!

    Q: I have been sexually involved with this guy for 1 1/2 yrs. He just recently found out that he has a Peri Rectal Abscess. Actually several abcesses on his butt cheeks. They gave him antibiotics for it. This morning I woke up with the same type of (abcess) knot/soreness on my upper buttocks, near the crack of my butt, as he did. We have never had anal, sex. Is this Peri Rectal Abcess contagious and, or transferrable sexually? He seems to think it's not. What should I take naturally as an antibiotic? I know your thoughts and views on Colloidial Silver, but that is all I had this morning to ease some of the pain.

    Q: This question is in regard to my 1 yr. old daughter. This morning she grabbed a boiling hot cup of water down from the kitchen table and now has a 2nd degree burn on her chest. She has a big open wound where the skin came off on her chest. I do not vaccinate my child and the nurses were trying to urge me to give her a tetanus shot which I refused. They mentioned it was a vaccine which was for pertussis as well which I did not really understand. So my question is, what would u recommend I give her to keep infection away? I am taking her to a burn center tomorrow for them to check it and show me how to and how often to dress it. I plan to put silver water on the bandage to help the healing process as well. I plan to do a detox for her soon since they gave her morphine for pain and also she has had a lot of mucus and congestion lately due to her teething. Thank you in advance and thank u for this BEAUTIFUL website I am so blessed to have come across your products, I plan to promote them within my business I have already been directing my clients here (I'm a natural stylist).

    A:

    Make sure you put aloe vera gel on the damaged skin of the child daily. Aloe is very calming and healing. To prevent infection, rub shea butter on the skin daily. Shea is very good for skin healing. Calendula gel (from a health food store) is also very therapeutic. The OZ OIL from Dherbs would be the best healing agent due to the oxygen in it. Alternate between the above oil, gel, and butter. Don't worry too much about the situation. Focus on healing and moving forward. The child will be alright! Peace, Love and Healing!

    Q: Peace. First off I would like to say that I am in love with your site. I started my children on a vegan diet last year, but they're lacking a very large amount of nutritional needs, including myself. I saw yours children's multivitamins, will it be strong enough to get my children back on a healthy tract? They're age 2,4,and 5. One more question. I ordered the full body cleanse. I also have an issue with my skin. I have cysts all over my body covering some of my hair particles and when they come to a head, besides the pain, its full of puss n there's a large amount of baby fine hairs that come out with it. I've been suffering with this since I was 14 yrs old. Can you help my situations?

    A: A vegan diet provides all the nutrients one needs. Be sure that you're all consuming a good amount of fruits and vegetables, as these foods predominately provide all the nutrients that the body needs. You can give the children the multivitamin to help boost their immune system. We recommend doing the Full Body Cleanse first, followed by the 10 Day Blood Cleanse. Severe skin issues are related to a problem within the blood, cleansing it is best. Continuing with the Blood and Lymphatic formula is also ideal.

    Q: What Causes Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura? A lack of activity in the ADAMTS13 enzyme (a type of protein in the blood) causes thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TPP). The ADAMTS13 gene controls the enzyme, which is involved in blood clotting. Not having enough enzyme activity causes platelets to clump together, forming blood clots. In TTP, when blood clots form, there are fewer platelets in the blood. This can cause bleeding into the skin (purpura), drawn-out bleeding from cuts, and internal bleeding. It also causes small blood clots to form suddenly throughout the body, including in the brain and kidneys. TTP also can cause red blood cells to break apart faster than the body can replace them. This leads to hemolytic anemia. My 25 yr. old niece has this very serious, rare disease, and I wanted to know if there is any natural herbs to that can help her heal this condition?

    A:

    There is plenty that can be done. Basically her blood needs to be addressed. This disease is perhaps mostly diet-related. Have her perform the FULL BODY DETOX. After the detox, put her on: BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, VITAMIN C FORMULA, and KHEMETIAN GOLD and her situation will change for the better. She needs to change her diet too! More fruits and vegetables (and vegetable juice). Just stick with Dherbs and her situation will change. Stay positive!

    Q: I would like to know if what I'm doing is okay. This is way before we found dherbs site and the products on the internet. We read on the internet that drinking a teaspoon of natural black sea salt or any sea salt in 32oz warm water every morning is good for bowel movement. We have been doing it for awhile now. Is it too much to take it with your products? I lost some weight after my FULL BODY DETOX but not too much on my stomach. What do you recommend l should use to get rid of the tummy area? I bought FIBROID BUSTER TEA I am I drinking it because l feel there is Fibroids down there. Should l also continue taking my BUNNY RABBIT formula with Fibroid tea? In my last email l mentioned my husband had mild stroke. Now he's having spasms all over his body especially when he's sleeping at night. Why is he having it and what else can he use for that? We are using all these wonderful products on the inside and still have un-even skin. Is it okay to use AMBI products for more youthful skin then detox every four months? If not, when are we going to see your skin products on the market?

    A:

    We don't recommend the drinking of sea salt. For tummy reduction: exercise (perform abs, sit ups) and take BOWEL MOVER and WEIGHT RELEASE FORMULA. You can take your herbs and tea together. No big deal! Spasms? Clearly the â€HEALING CRISIS†(read the article by this same title). The skin will improve in time. Don't focus on it!

    Q: I have read that Peppermint, Lavender, Rosemary and Sage essential oils are all good for hair and stimulating hair growth. Would it be more beneficial to use them all at once for maximum result or should I just use the Rosemary and Sage only as you suggested? Also, I didn?t see any Almond oil so I was wondering if I could use Olive oil or Jojoba oil as a carrier oil.

    A:

    Yes they are great for stimulating hair growth; however, I would use them together or combined. ANY natural edible oil can be used - it's YOUR choice. Jojoba and/or sesame seed oil are the best oils for the hair.

    Q: Over the last 2 yrs I've been interested in taking a more holistic approach to my health. I heard a radio ad for the dherbs website in NC where I live. At any rate, after perusing the site, I know there are several products I want to use but I don't want to take a large quantity of supplements at once. I am interested in doing a detox and colon cleanse. I want to improve the health of my eyes. I am very mucus laden and don't want to have an invasive procedure done that ENT/Sinus doctors are suggesting so I would like to do something more natural to clear that head congestion. I also have oily skin and have struggled with acne most of my life and my hair is not manageable so I would like to do something about skin/hair. With the multiple areas that I'm trying to improve, what's the best regime for me without having to take a lot of products together at once?

    A:

    Start your healing journey by: 1. Change your diet (Go raw foods/vegan: no meats, no dairy products, etc.) 2. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX 3. After the FBD, take daily EYES FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD.
