What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver may be defined as: the suspension of ultra-fine silver
particles in a colloidal base. The purer solutions of colloidal silver are
known as true colloidal silver solutions and are just comprised of pure water
and pure silver. In true colloidal silver, a major proportion of the silver
content obtains in the form of silver particles. True colloids will typically
contain between 50 to 80 percent particles. As silver particles are larger than
those found in standard water solutions, true silver colloids should not be
clear like water. This is because the larger particles in true silver colloids
block light from passing through the solution, making it appear darker.
Due to the high cost of production, true colloidal
silver products are the least prevalent type of colloidal silver on the market.
Colloidal silver is distinct from Ionic silver. Ionic silver is comprised
of mainly positively charged silver atoms. Colloidal silver, on the other hand,
is comprised of particles, the 80% to 90% of which are not in an ionic
state. A particle in an ionic state is just one that has more protons than
electrons, protons being positively charged and electrons being negatively
History of Silver and Colloidal Silver:
Silver has been used medicinally as far back as 4000 B.C. Eastern Persian
records specifically mention the practice of placing water in silver vessels;
the ancient Babylonian and Greek civilizations were also recorded silver's
anti-biotic properties. Furthemore, before the rapid inflation in the use of
antibiotics, silver compounds were used to prevent infection in World War I.
In the 1880’s the process of using silver in medicine was refined when
colloidal silver was first created. It was found that its smaller silver
particles provided a far safer and more effective alternative to the primitive
silver medicines previously used.
At the turn of the century scientists discovered that the body's most
important fluids are colloidal in nature; i.e. suspended ultra-fine particles.
Blood, for example, carries nutrition and oxygen to the body's cells in this
form. Prior to 1938 colloidal silver was used by physicians as a mainstream
antibiotic treatment and was considered to be "high-tech". Production
methods, however, were costly. As a result, during the emergence of the
pharmaceutical industry, colloidal silver research was set aside in favour of
faster working but potentially toxic and dangerous drugs.
The Food and Drug Administration today classifies colloidal silver as a
pre-1938 drug. As such, these products may continue to be marketed as long as
they are advertised and labeled for the same use as in 1938, and as long as
they are manufactured as before. The best known pre-1938 method currently
utilised is the elctro-colloidal process. Through the electro-colloidal process
electrolysis reduces the silver to its smallest possible particle, achieved by
the silver losing an electron. This smaller particle allows for safer and more
frequent consumption of colloidal silver, thereby trumping the silver rich
predecessor that could lead to cases of Argyria if consumed too frequently.
While studying regeneration of limbs and spinal cords in the late 1970s,
Robert Becker, M.D., author of ‘The Body Electric’ discovered that silver ions
promote bone growth and kill surrounding bacteria. The March 1978 issue of
Science Digest in an article, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," reported:
"Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern
medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms,
but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver
is virtually non-toxic." The article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry
Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher who worked with the late
Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University's Department of Surgery in
the 197Os: "Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have."
Historical Uses of Colloidal Silver:
Dr R Becker found that low silver levels lead to frequent illness. He
concluded that silver is a critical factor in the strengthening of the immune
system and destruction of bacteria and virus’. He notes - "What we have
done was rediscover the fact that silver kills bacteria, a fact which had
actually been known for centuries. All of the organisms we tested were
sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion including some that were
resistant to all known antibiotics. In no case were any undesirable side
effects of the silver treatment apparent.”
It was found that it is impossible
for single-celled germs to mutate into silver-resistant forms, as happens with
conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver ever
develops. Moreover, colloidal silver does not interfere with other medicines
that may be being taken. Inside the body, silver forms no toxic compounds nor
reacts with anything other than a pathogens oxygen-metabolising enzyme.
