While researchers debate the efficacy of colloidal silver, patient reports solidify the compound as not only effective but useful on a variety of levels. A silver residue of sorts, colloidal silver has been used as a medical treatment aid for decades and continues to be used by practitioners of holistic medicine today. Silver is a substance found naturally in food and water that, when used in moderation, has a number of positive effects on the health.
What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver and formulations of various silver salts have been used since the early 20th century. The compound is considered a colloid, which consists of miniscule silver particles suspended in liquid. Available specifically as an alternative medicine, colloidal silver is often considered a “cure-all” as it has so many purposes. Although the supplement is an effective treatment option for many ailments, care must be taken when using it because it can cause some adverse effects including allergic reactions, interactions with prescription medication and discoloration of the skin.
Health Benefits of Colloidal Silver
While many medical proponents believe colloidal silver peaked as a popular treatment in the 1920s and 1930s, it is still available on the market and remains a viable treatment option. In fact, the compound is still often found in mainstream medications, particularly those used to combat fungus in the body.
Additionally, colloidal silver can be used to treat a variety of common conditions including those of the skin, digestive system and others. The compound is most often used to treat burns, as it repairs skin and tissue damage, and to prevent scars. Rashes, cysts and acne can also be treated using the compound.
As it is an easily digestible compound that readily absorbs into the organs, colloidal silver is particularly important for boosting the immune system. It can also be used to treat colds, flu viruses, intestinal parasites, bladder and urinary tract infections and a variety of other conditions.
Colloidal silver has been used as a health remedy throughout history and continues to be an effective treatment option today. With applications ranging from minor skin conditions to more severe digestive and cardiovascular disease, colloidal silver is and will continue to be an important natural remedy.
Ted from Bangkok has always advised that after people make their own colloidal silver then they should always add 3 or 4 drops of 0.5% hydrogen peroxide to this colloidal solution. Ted has also mentioned that adding the HP actually helped to make the colloidal or ionic silver smaller in size by unclumping it. I wondered about this and tried to find some evidence for it.
This article seems to confirm that adding HP to CS actually makes the colloidal particles even smaller. It also mops up any stray silver particles in the solution -- making them ionic. So adding HP to a CS solution makes it even safer. And so this colloidal silver with HP, when supplemented, is also much more able to penetrate every nook and cranny in the body more efficiently because of CS's smaller ionic size. The other thing that adding HP does for colloidal silver is that it adds HP's excellent cell oxygenating capability and microbial killing capability to the CS solution.
And, as the article clearly states from research, that's why just adding a few drops of HP to a CS solution will make that solution 100 times stronger and more efficacious against microbes than just using CS solution alone.
