How Colloidal Silver Works
There are three primary ways that colloidal silver can help heal the body:
Silver naturally holds onto oxygen molecules, which readily react with the sulfhydryl groups that surround bacterial and viruses. In turn, this helps block the life-preserving cellular process known as cellular respiration, which is defined as “the set of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products.”
Reaction with Bacterial Cell Membranes:
Silver ions can attach to bacteria cell membranes directly and produce the same respiration-blocking effect.
Binding with DNA:
Shown to literally enter bacteria DNA, up to 12% of silver has been detected in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. According to one source, “While it remains unclear exactly how the silver binds to the DNA without destroying the hydrogen bonds holding the lattice together, it nevertheless prevents the DNA from unwinding, an essential step for cellular replication to occur.”
Top 8 Proven Colloidal Silver Benefits:
By having a direct effect on cellular respiration, colloidal silver benefits the body in numerous ways. There are, however, eight proven healing properties that I consider to be particularly supported by the medical literature.
First, colloidal silver’s ability to control antibiotic-resistant superbugs is astonishing. UCLA Medical School in the 1980s, Larry C. Ford, MD, documented over 650 different disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver.
Colloidal silver, unlike its modern prescription antibiotic counterpart, simply doesn’t create resistance or immunity in the organisms that are killed by it. This point cannot be emphasized enough, especially in light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reporting that more than 2 million people in the U.S. suffer illness every year as a result of antibiotic-resistant infections and 23,000 die from these infections.
2. Wound Care/Skin Health
Colloidal silver stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues. In a research article produced by Pharmacognosy Communications in 2012, it was specifically recommended that certain colloidal silver preparations should be considered for topical use to treat burns, thrush, periodontitis and other conditions.
For instance, you can treat ringworm (Tinea capitis) at home with colloidal silver because it’s a potent anti-fungal. Caused by a fungus that lives on the top layer of the skin, ringworm presents as round, scaly patches. It’s contagious and spread by skin contact and by contaminated materials, such as clothing.
Colloidal silver benefits many skins conditions such as psoriasis and eczema as well. It’s soothing to scrapes and even repairs tissue damage from burns.
*It stops the BURN and begins COOLING the tissue upon contact*
I personally stopped 3rd & 4th degree burns when a pot of boiling water fell on my chest and burned through my clothes. I had 3rd & 4th degree burns on my chest, torso and belly. It looked as though a shark took a bite out of me. I used the silver in the shower immediately as I stripped off my clothes. I used less than a full quart that I was pouring over the wounds. It was stopping the burning on contact. I then showered using Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap. Patted dry, filled my wounds with frankincense and packed coconut oil over the top and then used my husbands 100% cotton hanes undershirts as a "bandage" to hold it all together. I repeated the shower daily, rinsing with silver after the shower using Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap. Used frankincense oil inside all the wounds, packed with coconut oil and wrapped in a hanes undershirt. I repeated this for 10 days and then my wounds were now fully healed and I was just dealing with scars. I used lavender essential oil daily for 2 more weeks and after those 10 days + 2 weeks, I have ZERO scarring and my body was fully healed. My husband and mother couldn't believe how beautifully I recovered. ~Niti
3. Pink Eye/Ear Infections
Pink eye is an inflamed mucous membrane that covers the eyeball and eyelid lining, and it’s primarily caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Colloidal silver can be used for prompt action against this irritating and highly infectious virus and bacteria.
When applied on the infected eye, the tiny silver colloids pick up the infected cells by attracting them electromagnetically and sending them into the bloodstream to be eliminated.
Our modern prescription antibiotic drugs are designed to work against specific classes of bacteria, but ear infections may be caused by multiple classes of bacteria or can even be fungal.
In this case, the prescription antibiotic will be useless, whereas colloidal silver is effective regardless of what may be causing your infection.
**We have used silver to clean our eyes and reversed allergies, pink eye and stye on eyes. We wash with silver and pack eye with lard or tallow before bed and are normally fully recovered within 24 -36 hours.** ~ Niti
Colloidal silver benefits can be experienced as an antiviral for HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, herpes, shingles and warts. Dr. Martin Hum, from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, lists colloidal silver as one of the natural remedies to stop viruses fast.
Colloidal silver suffocates the virus and can even reduce the activity of the HIV virus in AIDS patients. There are also numerous anecdotal accounts of colloidal silver’s efficacy against the hepatitis C virus.
*Gargling with silver will stop strep throat pain and heal the body defending it against strep.* We have effectively stopped strep throat in a day by brushing the teeth and then gargling in a clean mouth (try to gargle for 1 minute before spitting out) every hour for 4 hours and then taking fresh minced garlic 3Xs (1 teaspoon 3Xs that day- like a pill). We recover for such illness within 12 to 36 hours depending on how weak we were prior to falling ill.* ~ Niti
Colloidal silver is also a fantastic anti-inflammatory remedy. Case in point: Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) studied the effects of inflammation after being treated by colloidal silver; they found that the inflamed skin of pigs treated with silver experienced near-normal skin after 72 hours, while other treatment groups not treated with silver remained inflamed. (11)
Research is beginning to reflect what many people have already known anecdotally for years — that colloidal silver can reduce swelling, speed healing, and boosts cell recovery! **My skin regenerated within 10 days leaving NO SCARRING after suffering 3rd and 4th degree burns. When my mom came to see me she couldn't understand why I would not go to a doctor for them to help me.** ~ I have never walked away from a physician without scars so NO THANK YOU.
Widely used to control sinus infections, colloidal silver can benefit people as a nasal spray, according to a study published in the International Forum for Allergy and Rhinology last year. (14)
Specifically shown to kill Staph aureus, you can add a few drops of silver in a “neti pot” or by applying directly into your nasal cavity and letting it drain down your throat by tilting your head back.
Also, it’s important to point out that recent research indicates that hidden infections by pathogens could be a cause of respiratory inflammation associated with common allergies and asthma.
Colloidal silver destroys Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, which may be the reason why airborne allergy sufferers often find such dramatic relief from colloidal silver.
**We have sinus spray bottles in the membership that you can use with the silver you take home with you.**
Some claim that colloidal silver helps prevent all types of flu, including swine flu, as well as the common cold.
Few studies have been done to test this clinically, but in 2011 the NIH took 100 children under the age of 12 suffering from the common cold and nasal congestion and assigned them into two groups; the first group was treated with a solution of colloidal silver and beta glucan, and the second group with saline solution. Even though both groups benefited from the treatment, 90% of the people in the colloidal silver group completely recovered!
Our modern drugs have become limited in their efficacy when it comes to fighting bronchitis or pneumonia. Typically, antibiotics are administered as the first line of defense, but when the pneumonia is viral, antibiotics won’t help in the least. The nice thing about colloidal silver is that it can help regardless of the pathogen.
Colloidal silver is a remarkable product to help fight against bronchitis and pneumonia when ingested internally, but an even more effective way to utilize it? Simply breathe it into your lungs.
This way, the silver directly contacts the germs residing in the lungs, which are causing bronchitis or pneumonia. It’s basically the same thing as using respiratory support, and it works speedily, clearing it up within a couple of days.
Now, the most effective method to get the colloidal silver into the lungs is to use a nebulizer. Generally, use one teaspoon approximately three times a day for 10 to 15 minutes.
Colloidal Dosage & Use
Colloidal silver needs to be applied differently for each condition. To experience colloidal silver benefits, it may be taken as follows, always keeping in mind to never use it for more than 14 days in a row. *We have dropper bottles, nasal spray bottles and more here at the CSA, just ask Jaya for whatever you need.*
- 2-5 drops applied directly to the skin
- 1 eyedropper taken orally for immune support
- 1-2 drops into eyes for pink eye
- 1-2 drops can help disinfect any wound or sore by applying onto a Band-Aid
- 5 drops added into a neti pot or directly sprayed into the nose
- 5-10 drops can be applied vaginally or anally
I keep a quart of colloidal silver in my kitchen at all times. I also keep the silver cream there to use for minor burns or cuts. This quart of silver is in addition to pints of silver we keep in the bathroom medicine cabinet. In the 12 years we have used food and these natural solutions like silver for healing, we find less and less need for it outside of emergent use in the case of getting hurt or burnt.
It is as though our body and temple has been reinforced, forged in silver for regenerative and continuous self healing. I hope you will incorporate this in your own life. Ask me anything to help you learn how to incorporate it in yours.
