History of SILVER as a Healing Metal:
the ages we've known the properties of silver. The ancients stored their
water in silver vessels to prevent bacteria from growing. American settlers
would put a silver dollar in their milk containers to stop it spoiling.
The age old phrase 'born with a silver spoon in his mouth' did not mean
wealth but health. In the 18th.century, babies fed with a 'silver spoon'
were found to be healthier than those fed using other metals. Seventy
years ago 'Colloidal Silver' was a proven germ fighter and widely used.
It was the mainstay of antibiotic treatment. In 1914 the medical journal
(Lancet) reported phenomenal results from its use. Dr. Henry Crooks showed
'Colloidal Silver' to be absolutely harmless and non-toxic to humans and
highly germicidal. Prior to 1940, articles regarding the benefits of 'colloidal
silver' were frequently seen in medical journals. During the 1930's silver
was used both externally and internally for a variety of medical conditions.
Because of the price of silver and the inception of penicillin and other
antibiotics - use of 'Colloidal Silver' fell by the wayside. In the late
1970's interest in silver was rekindled because of its usefulness for
the treatment of burns victims. Silver could be used over large areas
of the body and is non-toxic and non-stinging, even to the eyes.
What is a Colloid:
A 'colloid' consists of ultra-microscopic particles. These particles stay
suspended because they have a tiny charge placed on them produced by electro-colloidal
process. The particles are so small that the force of an electrical charge
on the particles against the water molecules is greater than the pull
of gravity. As a result the particles can stay in suspension at appropriate
concentrations almost indefinitely with no need for chemicals or stabilizers.
In a true 'colloid' these particles are so ultra-fine that they cannot
be seen by the naked eye. We supply a pure, high quality true colloid
with silver particles in the correct range of 3 to 15 parts per million
(it should never exceed 20 parts per million). This ensures a safe and
effective product that gives the best results. This is not true for all
preparations on the market. So beware of products with higher concentrations
as they could attack friendly bacteria in the same way as synthetic antibiotics,
which would upset your body's natural balance.
* Today NASA uses silver in their water-filters and water purification
systems for the space shuttles…as it kills and keeps bacteria from growing
inside the filter itself.
* In Ayurvedic medicine, Dr. Vasant Lad states in 'The Science of Self
Healing' that silver is an important healing metal. It is used in the
treatment of mental, nervous and movement disorders, chronic fever, weakness
after fever, inflammatory conditions of the intestines, hyperactivity
of the gall bladder, profuse menstrual bleeding, inflammatory heart disease
and liver and spleen disorders - all benefits from the ingestion of silver.
* 2006: The journal for nanotechnology reported a ground breaking study
conducted by the university of Texas and Mexico, which showed that 'silver
nanoparticles' kills HIV-1 and is likely to kill virtually all other virus
including Avian 'Bird' flu and MRSA.
* Usually, an antibiotic will kill a half a dozen different strains of
bacteria. Research at Washington University School of Medicine in St.
Louis has shown that silver is bactericidal to some 650 strains of disease
causing organisms and that resistant strains can not develop with silver
in the way they do with antibiotic drugs.
* LABORATORY TEST RESULTS :
To ensure that we are supplying
the best Colloidal Silver, we have had ours privately analysed by 'Eurofins
Laboratiries' for contaminants and pathogens (bacteria) such as
Salmonella, E Coli, Bacillus Cereus, Mould, Yeast, Staph-Aureus and
others and it successfully passed all the test for purity.
