probably the most powerful antibiotic, antifungal substance known
prior to World War II. During this time, silver was ground up into
small particles and suspended in a fluid known as colloidal silver.
This type of silver was very expensive and only wealthy people could
afford silver treatments.
War II, the methodology for making penicillin on a commercial scale
was discovered and silver treatments became a thing of the past.
That is until many bacterial strains became resistant to antibiotics.
1960s and 1970s, research on silver began to take place
with some remarkable results. The process of making silver solutions
benefited tremendously from the technology developed during this
time. Instead of ground up silver that would turn the body gray,
the new silver solutions were electrically generated with extremely
small silver particles as small as 1/10,000 of an inch.
discovered that silver does indeed possess antibacterial and antifungal
properties particularly with the electrically generated colloidal
silver. They also found that extremely small concentrations such
as 5 to 6 parts per million (ppm) were actually more effective than
the stronger solutions. Note that the stronger solutions made from
old technology are the ones that can turn you blue stay away

been used on almost any condition involving bacteria, virus, and/or
fungus. These include ear infections, food poisoning, stomach viruses,
sinus infections, skin infections, urinary tract infections, shingles,
pink eye, yeast infections, ringworm, colitis, and many more. It
is one of my favorite remedies to recommend because it is so safe
and gentle it is easy for anyone of any age to take because
it tastes like water.
Over the years,
I have had many customers use silver on a daily basis with nothing
but positive results. It seems to help break the cycle of chronic
ear infections in children and also chronic sinus infections is
Silver is very
safe and can be put directly into an infected eye or ear, or it
can taken internally. I have also sprayed silver directly on wasp
stings and had the pain resolve in just a few minutes, leaving no
swelling or other sign of the sting.

eyes and have also used it when dealing with infection.
become much more popular in recent years especially after
it was shown to be effective on anthrax. Clinical studies have been
running for several years in Africa where silver has been used successfully
on malaria. One of the nice things about using silver is that bacteria
and virus strains have no known resistance to it.
The best silver
solutions are those that are combined with oxygen that tend to make
the silver more stable and more bioavailable. These tend to be ionized
solutions rather than true colloids. Again, stronger solutions are
not necessarily better since laboratory tests show that 5 to 6 ppm
is effective on most organisms.
shows that silver when used over time does not kill beneficial bacteria
in the intestinal tract. There is also significant research documenting
the safety of silver.
