Although colloidal silver has been used for medicinal purposes for many centuries, in recent years it has come back into circulation. The traditionally claimed benefits of colloidal silver can now be tested by modern science. Recently the UCLA School of medicine conducted medical tests on colloidal silver.
The laboratory tests conducted by Larry C. Ford, the M.D of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology from UCLA School of Medicine brought to light the ability of colloidal silver to kill viral, fungal and bacterial organisms.
The individual conducted extensive laboratory tests based on the standard anti-microbial test for disinfectants. The results showed colloidal silver to have anti-bacterial properties for 105 organisms per ml of streptococcus pyogenes, Neisseria, Gardnerella Vaginalis, Gonorrhea and various other enteric pathogens.
Thus it was discovered that colloidal silver can actually kill over 650 bacteria, fungi, parasites, molds and fungi that have the potential to sprout diseases. At the same time the tests established that colloidal silver has no known side effects.
The reason why colloidal silver does not react with the body in a negative manner is because the body actually requires a certain amount of silver for regeneration of tissues and the replacement of special cells. Not only is colloidal silver safe to use on its own but it also does not react adversely when used in a combination therapy with other conventional medicines.
When colloidal silver comes into close proximity with a single cell pathogen or a bacterium it has a disabling effect on its oxygen metabolism enzyme. Within six minutes of contact colloidal silver will actually suffocate the pathogen.
For colloidal silver to be beneficial it needs to maintain a certain ppm level. Tests have shown that an exceeded ppm level can actually destroy some intestinal bacteria that are beneficial for the body. This is why oral administration of the drug is suggested.
The consumption of colloidal silver for treating different diseases varies accordingly. For example in case of exposure to high levels of bubonic plague or anthrax, colloidal silver of at least 6 to 100 ppm concentration needs to be consumed continuously. When colloidal silver is ingested into the body it takes around three to four days for it to initiate the desired effect internally.
Colloidal silver as a water purifying agent
The UCLA medical tests on colloidal silver also proved it to be an effective water purifying agent. It takes around two teaspoons of colloidal silver with a potency of over 30 ppm to purify one gallon of water.
Legion Ella pneumopjilia, commonly known as Legionnaire’s disease is a deadly virus often found in water. It can be eliminated from water by heating it to around 145 degrees. Alternatively colloidal silver with 20 ppm can destroy this virus on its own.
Following the positive results of the UCLA medical tests on colloidal silver its use has flourished on a wide scale level. It is not only used for the medicinal purposes but also added to water as a purifying agent world wide.
