EN: Ever heard of Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal silver is a completely natural, liquid mineral supplement which can be made easily by a small, countertop mechanical device called a colloidal silver generator. It is similar to mineral water, except the only mineral content in the water sub-microscopic particles of pure silver.

Silver, by itself, has been known for thousands of years to have powerful, broad-spectrum infection-fighting qualities – even against the most stubborn & deadly of pathogens. So when the process for making colloidal silver was discovered in the late 1800s shortly after Edison harnessed electricity, it immediately became the most popular natural infection fighting agent to the most savvy doctors & clinical researchers.

Colloidal silver is completely safe to use for serious deep seated infections, or even for simple infections like colds and flu & it can also be used externally on cuts, burns, lacerations and infections.

When ingested, tiny particles of silver travel throughout your body just like any other mineral supplement before being excreted through your body’s normal channels  of elimination. However, as the silver particles come into contact with pathogenic microorganisms that are susceptible to silver, the silver rapidly inactivates & kills the microbes, thus preventing them from colonizing, spreading and causing disease.

Scientists argue that colloidal silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that one celled bacteria, fungi & viruses use for their respiration & metabolism. Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to develop.

In fact, experts say that very few known disease-causing organisms tested have been able to live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element known as silver.

Here is a small sample of diseases against which colloidal silver has been used successfully, according to medical texts: acne, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, blood parasites, bubonic plague, burns (topical silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive), cancer, candida, cholera, chronic fatigue, colds and flu, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, toxemia, trench foot, certain viruses, warts and stomach ulcers.

Also according to the experts, colloidal silver can be used to purify drinking water. Adding  1 oz of colloidal silver per gallon to purify the drinking water of micro organisms is the general recommendation in most publications we’ve seen. Experts also say colloidal silver used internally is one of the best nutritional antidotes for food poisoning.
