Silver naturally holds onto oxygen molecules which readily react with the sulfhydrl (H) groups surrounding the pathogens. This action blocks cellular respiration from occurring, while simultaneously imparting a sterilizing effect on the body. Additionally, silver molecules have the ability to bind directly to the cell membranes of bacteria and viruses; this blocks their ability to reproduce. Another mechanism of action is that silver can attach to the DNA of pathogens, thus preventing replication. When colloidal silver comes near any pathogen (bacteria, virus, fungi or any other single-celled pathogen), it will disable its oxygen within minutes. This causes the pathogen to suffocate and die and the body then eliminates it via the lymphatic system.
INGESTION OF COLLOIDAL SILVER: Allow the silver suspension to remain in the mouth, sublingually (under tongue). Swish around in mouth and hold for at least 60 seconds. If dealing with acute conditions, take 30mL daily total (split into two equal amounts); 15mL is about one tablespoon. It is very important to drink at least six glasses of pure water daily to assist in the elimination of destroyed pathogens. *NB: Colloidal silver may taste a little bitter and/or metallic.
INHALATION OF COLLOIDAL SILVER: Colloidal silver may be nebulized as a mist and inhaled into the lungs to address respiratory ailments. This method also allows for fast absorption into the blood via lung tissues.
EXTERNAL USE OF COLLOIDAL SILVER: Colloidal silver may be applied directly to cuts, cold sores, burns, open wounds and other lesions. It may help with eczema, mosquito bites, acne, diaper rash, athlete’s foot, dandruff, dry scalp and more. Colloidal silver works best when placed in direct contact with the source of infection. It may be used as a gargle for sore throat, or even as a dental mouth rinse. Colloidal silver can be placed in the eyes or ears (via dropper or sprayer). This can address issues such as pink eye, stye, other infections of the eye, ear infections, etc. If one is experiencing sinusitis, colloidal silver can be administered a few ways. You may draw in through the nostrils or use a sprayer and squirt colloidal silver up into nasal passages.
CLEANING WITH COLLOIDAL SILVER: Because colloidal silver is an antimicrobial, this is a great all natural option for sterilizing surfaces. Simply spray colloidal silver and allow to sit for a few minutes; return and wipe dry!
There are a number of characteristics about the manufacture and use of colloidal silver to consider. A very important characteristic is particle size. The general term “colloidal” typically means a particle size range of less than one micrometer (1 µm or 10-6 m), suspended in a liquid. However, recent manufacturing technology permits the silver particles to be even smaller – in the “nano” range, where one nanometer is one thousandth of a micrometer (1 nm or 10-9 m). It is important to have a silver particle size range of less than 10 nm to ensure a stable, consistent, high purity suspension, and for disinfection efficacy.
It is also important to have this small size range so that the colloidal silver can pass through the blood brain barrier (BBB) – a highly selective semi permeable border that separates the circulating blood from the brain and extracellular fluid in the central nervous system. This permits treating brain disorders such as meningitis and other diseases with colloidal silver, where regular antibiotics cannot penetrate.
