Colloidal Silver: Benefits, Risks and General Uses

It is strange how something that has been used by ancient civilizations to fight against bacteria, can be so easily dismissed by big pharma retailers in modern days. After stumbling upon an interesting organization called “Colloidal Earth”, there is some worthwhile information to share on the health benefits, risks and plethora of uses of the colloidal silver health product they ship worldwide. Since it was reviewed by a Naturopathic doctor, it drew a lot of interest – and some of the information we’d like to share with readers, starting with the basics for those who are new to the topic.

What is Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal silver is a suspension made of microscopic particles of silver in water, and sometimes, in a gel. It is an ancient remedy that has been used safely in modern times for various health problems.

Benefits of Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver is a broad-spectrum anti-microbial agent that kills bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses and yeast within the body and on wounds. It is known as a natural remedy for bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, syphilis, scarlet fever, leprosy, tuberculosis, malaria, yeast infections (e.g. Candida), fungal infections and for antibiotic resistant infections.

Ayurvedic and other alternative medicine practitioners use colloidal silver to treat various cancers. It is an anti-virus used for colds, flu, HIV, herpes, warts, etc. Other people use it effectively for skin conditions such as cradle cap, rosacea, eczema, acne, impetigo, skin infections and psoriasis. It also effectively addresses inflammation of the nose, bladder, prostate, colon, stomach, sinuses, tonsils and the appendix.

People who suffer from allergies such as hay fever and asthma and those with chronic rhinitis and sinusitis have benefited a lot from the use of colloidal silver.

So What Are the Uses of Colloidal Silver?

Water purification. In areas without running water, colloidal silver has been used to purify water by killing all the pathogens in the water. According to The Guardian, Colloidal Silver contributed towards saving lives in the third world. This is good news for people who travel in areas that do not have running water.

Medical uses in hospitals. Colloidal silver is being used extensively in the medical field. It is on wound dressings which enhance wound healing and kill microbes. It is on medical applications such as dental work, medical implants, breathing tubes, surgical needles, fracture setting instruments, bone implant systems and catheters (to kill pathogens).

Pregnant women’s health. Some pregnant women take colloidal silver to help with the baby’s growth and health and to improve the mother’s experience during delivery and recovery. So is colloidal silver safe while breast feeding? You’d need to check with your Doctor about dosages and safety – because overusing it may be an issue. Different pediatricians have a wide range of views on the matter – most seem to endorse it.

Is Colloidal Silver Safe?

Silver is quite safe to use. Up until the 1903s before big pharma was “born”, it was used widely in allopathic medicine as a broad-spectrum anti-viral, anti-fungal and antibiotic agent. Nothing else worked better at that time. It was the nuclear weapon of infections because no pathogen survived it. Nothing works better now, and it is possibly still a nuclear weapon against infections, seeing that it kills even the well-known antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. It doesn’t create any resistance or cause any side effects in the process.

Colloidal Silver Does Not Destroy Beneficial Microbes

Unlike an antibiotic that will destroy some of the bad bacteria together with the good bacteria, colloidal silver kills all the bad bacteria, some fungi, and yeasts leaving the good bacteria. It leaves the user without any harmful pathogens in the body.

Why There is Negativity Around Colloidal Silver?

There are no side effects in people who use good quality products. Unfortunately, colloidal silver was taken off medical books and history simply because of power plays by the pharmaceutical industry. Silver is a natural substance which cannot be patented and that is why there was pressure to remove it from the market in the 20th century. However, government agencies now allow its use in medical instruments and wound dressings to kills pathogens. Many manufacturers of medical supplies have registered numerous patents of their products that contain colloidal silver! Users should therefore ask themselves why it is being allowed after it was banned at one time.

Is Making Your Own Colloidal Silver Safe?

It is dangerous to make colloidal silver at home for three reasons discussed below.

Concentration. People often unknowingly make a very strong suspension, from 500 parts-per-million to over 1,000 parts-per-million. That causes an overdose and an overdose of any substance is not good for health. That is why some people turn blue after using home made colloidal silver. However, the commercially produced colloidal silver is not more than 20 parts per million, which is very mild and safe for adults and children.

Incorrect silver. People tend to consume silver nitrate which is completely different from pure silver metal and is not safe for human consumption.

Fillers. Some colloidal silver contains fillers that make the product cheaper to produce and those fillers could be toxic compounds.

Colloidal Silver Has Health Benefits and No Risks

Good quality colloidal silver is .999 pure silver nanoparticles in purified water or gel that has no fillers in it and it has a low concentration that does not cause any harm to life. It effectively combats many infections, reduces inflammation, purifies water, enhances wound healing and is effective against some cancers. It has the power to kill over 650 known pathogens within 72 hours and it has no known side effects. No household should be without this product. However, it is wise to purchase good quality product made by reputable manufacturers.
