Colloidal Silver


Recommended Posts

be careful taking its a heavy metal,

do your own diligence and own research on it.

If you take to much next year i can pick you out in the crowd you will be the one with greyish blue lips

yes in some cases it can help in very bad infections

but it's is not something you drink casually

Microdyn  that you wash vegetables has colloidal silver in it , you may be already getting it your vegetable wash.

remember this is not bacteria specific, it's kills all good or bad bacteria wen taking it.

Spanish plata   English silver  read label on microdyn

microdyn may be small was of getting  some  colloidal silver

 

I question i heard about someone saying to a doctor when told they needed valium.

the person questioned the doctor and asked do i have a deficiency of valium in my diet.

Tuesday Market has it. It was a godsend for me for a persistent inner ear infection ( not pain, loss of balance). Bought a powerful nasal sprayer to use it, other people use a syringe, with no needle of course. It is one the few treatments for staph infection. Over 30% of ear and sinus infections are caused by staph.

Colloidal-silver.com - publications. Also exposing the "blue man" hoax, he suffered from his own efforts, making silver chloride by accident. Colloidal silver was the go to antibiotic before penicillin came along. Now penicillin is almost useless. Silver and dietary changes are filling in.

I don't know it's effectiveness against muscle damage or pain. That is a very valuable topic.

Thanks, Chillin. I am still recovering from a serious car crash (gringa talking on her phone failed to see the red light) and thought it might help the muscle soreness.

Diclofenac GEL (generic form of Voltarin and MUCH cheaper but just as good) will help with that.  The little discount farmacia near Oxxo (east of Sunrise Restaurant) has it.  Ask for Volfenac gel.  

DO NOT take oral diclofenac........ can do really bad things to your innards!  And be well.

Question:
Is ingesting colloidal silver helpful for any condition and is it safe to use? I'm seeing it promoted for many applications.
Benefits and Risks of Colloidal Silver? -- dropper bottle of colloidal silver
Answer:
Colloidal silver (a solution with silver particles) has antiseptic (disinfectant) activity, and, for this reason, has been promoted for a wide number of uses, from treating sinus infections and ear infections to boosting the immune system. It has also been promoted to help treat diabetes, arthritis, thyroid conditions, and even cancer. However, there is no clinically-proven benefit for taking colloidal silver, and there are potential risks. 

Long term use of colloidal silver can cause "blue man syndrome," or argyria, a permanent gray or blue discoloration of the skin. Rarely, chronic consumption of colloidal silver has been associated with the development of seizures; in one case, this led to coma and death (Mirsattari, Neurology 2004; Stepien, Ann Clin Biochem 2009).

Long-term use of an oral colloidal silver supplement is suspected to have caused bone marrow damage and contributed to the development of cancer of the blood and bone marrow (acute myeloid leukemia, or AML) in a 79-year-old man who had been taking this supplement for more than ten years. His blood silver level was found to be approximately five times the maximum normal level. The man died due to progressive respiratory failure (a complication of AML) and pulmonary embolism. His physicians at a UCLA Hematology-Oncology clinic noted that there is evidence that silver may cause changes in bone marrow and blood cells, and has been shown to promote tumor growth in laboratory studies. They also speculated that colloidal silver may have altered the "normal bacterial flora" in the man, making him more susceptible to respiratory infection (Keung, J Oncol Pharm Pract 2019).

Colloidal silver may cause fetal abnormalities if taken during pregnancy (Fung, J Toxicol Clin Toxicol 1996).

In 1999, the FDA banned colloidal silver as an over-the-counter drug for internal as well as external use, stating that it was not generally recognized as safe and effective. Legally, however, it remains available as a dietary supplement.

Tests of 16 colloidal silver products in the U.S. found that, of the 13 that listed an amount of colloidal silver, ten did not contain within 20% of the listed amount -- three of which contained only 0.5% to 15% of what was listed. Taking the dose recommended on products would yield from 5.6 mcg and 961 mcg of silver per day — an enormous range. These were all far below the level associated with acute adverse effects but, as noted by the researchers, there are potential risks associated with chronic ingestion of even small amounts of silver, including changes the microbial balance in the gut, and possible toxicity to the lining of the small intestine. Some products also contained nanoparticles of silver, which, due to their small size, may be more toxic than larger silver particles to the cardiovascular system, and, if inhaled (as from a spray) may have inflammatory effects on tissue in the nose and lung (Rogers, Sci Total Environ 2018; Product names not listed).

The bottom line:
There is no clinical evidence that colloidal silver supplements effectively treat infections, diabetes, arthritis, thyroid conditions or cancer. Furthermore, colloidal silver can cause permanent blue discoloration of the skin, and, rarely, has been reported to cause seizures. Pregnant women should not use colloidal silver.

Totally agree with Apachewoman.  However, I have made on interesting discovery with the fruit/veg soaking product Albiosan. It contains colloidal silver, and the strength varies----- little dropper bottle has the most, great big bottles are a waste of money because you need a lot more per litre of water.

If dropped (one drop) directly on toenail fungus on a "when you remember" basis, it actually seems to clear it up!  Did for me anyway, and I'd had it for donkey's years.
