I have been using colloidal silver for about 4.5 years to good effect. It must boost the immune system for though I have a few major medical
conditions I have not had a cold or flu in the interim. Mind, I eat rather strictly avoiding meats, fish, dairy products, grains (including the
flours), all processed foods, sugar, honey, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs (legal and illegal), certain fruits and vegetables as well. Also take oil of
oregano usually with the colloidal silver to keep parasites, viruses and fungi in check. Either of these are wonderful for aniseptic use as these do
not kill off cells in and around the wound the way the chemical accepted treatments do. Rubbing alcohol has to be the worst for this tissue damage.
The silver will turn certain folk's skin blue (argyria) if consuming too much but methinks it also depends on the brand of colloidal silver water too
and the method of manufacture.
A bit of trivia. You have heard of the term "blue bloods"? Wealthy personages, throughout the centuries, such as royalty, religious elite and landed
aristocrats drank and ate from silver tankards, plates, cutlery, mugs and chalices. They also stored water in silver urns. The silver would erode and
enter their bodies thereby turning the skin bluish. There are many thoughts on the term "blue blood" but this is the only one that makes sense to
I once read (though I cannot now prove it) that Alexander the Great would create medicinal silver water by filling his silver helmet with water and
letting it steep for a period of time. This then would be used to wash out his battle wounds and to drink as an elixer.
Medical applications of silver were recognized by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and in the alchemical writings of Paracelsus. Following the
discovery of bacteria as a cause of disease, several physicians discovered the antibacterial qualities of silver and applied them to their practice of
medicine. They used silver nitrate successfully in the treatment of skin ulcers, compound fractures, and suppurating wounds. This was not the first
time silver had been used for its antibacterial properties. In 4000 B.C. Persian records indicate that water was kept in silver vessels to produce
antibacterial and disinfectant qualities in it. The Romans used silver compounds on the battle field to treat wounds as did the Crusaders in the
In Ayurvedic medicine silver is used in small amounts as a tonic or elixir or rejuvenative agent for patients debilitated by age or disease. Silver
was also used in homeopathic medicine. The dilute concentrations were in the same range as the modern low concentrations of colloidal silver.
Personally, I would highly recommend taking a few droppers of colloidal silver water daily as a tonic for its antibacterial, antifungal,
antiparasitic, antibiotic, antiseptic and antiviral effects.
