Revised October 2010
With so many organisms now resistant to antibiotic therapy, and the growing awareness of the numerous, damaging, side effects of these drugs, more and more people are turning to Colloidal Silver. However, as awareness grows of the limitations and dangers of antibiotics, the profit threatening re-discovery of Colloidal Silver has become apparent to the major pharmaceutical manufacturers. So, due to legislation funded by these pharmaceutical giants and supported by blatantly false propaganda distributed by these same vested interests, it is now illegal to sell Colloidal Silver for human consumption in the EU.
We supply a high quality, ionic colloidal silver product. We still manufacture this product, to exactly the same high standard, using exactly the same methods, but now we can only supply it for household and animal use. By purchasing it you acknowledge these limitations of use.
A Natural Antibiotic with Beneficial Side Effects
Colloidal Silver is one of the oldest remedies in the world and can be traced as far back as the ancient Greek and Roman Empires. It is a non-toxic, non-addictive infection fighter free of side effects. Colloidal Silver is thought to kill an average of 650 different organisms, compared to the 6 of a standard antibiotic. It is safe for adults, children, animals and pregnant and nursing women. It can be applied topically and used internally and has no reaction with other medications.In the early part of this century Colloidal Silver was used as a mainstream therapy until modern antibiotics came along. It was the primary infection fighting medium used by the wealthy before the advent of penicillin.
Colloidal Silver is a completely natural substance, we supply a pure, high quality, true colloid with silver particles in the correct range, this ensures a safe and effective product that gives the best results; this is not true of all preparations on the market.
How Colloidal Silver is Produced
Early, pre-war manufacturing techniques were expensive as well as less efficient than today's methods; the silver particle size never reached its optimum ultra-microscopic size. The highest grade is produced by the electro-colloidal (as opposed to mechanical grind, ultrasonic or chemical) method where the silver particles and water have been colloided (dispersed within and bound to each other) by an electric current. This preserves the necessary homogeneity, minuteness of granules, purity and stability to create a true colloid composed of particles of ultra fine silver (about 0.01 to 0.0001 micron diameter), electrically charged and held in suspension in a solution of deionized water.
According to the Colloid Research Foundation, the highest quality Colloidal Silver consists of the maximum number of particles of the minimum possible size with the ultimate solution having a huge number of particles of one atom, each carrying an electrical charge. A true silver colloid should not contain any artificial stabilizers or chemical additives of any kind, which can be present in some silver products on the market. Some even use artificial yellow dye to give their product the proper golden yellow colour of the true silver colloid. Darker colours indicate larger silver particles that tend to collect at the bottom of the container and are not true colloids. If a product contains a stabilizer or lists trace elements other than silver, or if it needs to be shaken, it is inferior. If a product requires refrigeration, some other ingredient is present that could spoil. High concentrations of silver will kill organisms quicker but not necessarily more effectively than the most effective range of 8 to 10 parts per million (ppm).
No side effects
Medical journal reports and studies have indicated no known side effects from use of Colloidal Silver. Nadine Wooley a greatly improved MS patient, drank more than one pint a day of (HVAC produced) of Colloidal Silver for over 4 years. She showed brain lesions caused by the MS on a scan prior to the silver treatment, and the dispersal of two brain lesions (partly responsible for the MS) after 8 months of silver use. A blood test undertaken by the Mayo clinic revealed no silver toxicity. She had a dramatic reduction in her MS symptoms over this period. Silver is not stored in the tissues and needs to be regularly consumed to achieve the best results. Click the link for her full story Colloidal Silver and Multiple Sclerosis
The Perfect Solution for Harmful Bacteria, Virus & Fungi
The History of Colloidal Silver
Silver has been used since antiquity to purify water. While silver's importance as a bactericide has only been documented since the late 1800s, its use in purification has been known throughout the ages. The Phoenicians for example, used silver vessels to keep water, wine and vinegar pure during long voyages. American pioneers put silver and copper coins in their water barrels to keep them clean.
"Born with a silver spoon in his mouth" is not a reference to wealth, but to health. In the early 18th century, babies fed with silver spoons were found to be healthier than those fed with spoons made from other metals. The British aristocracy ate from silver plates and drank from silver goblets, ingested and injected quantities of silver; allegedly this led to them being referred to as 'blue bloods', due to their skin colour. Certainly, it is known that prolonged ingestion of certain forms of silver can lead to Argyria, characterised by a harmless but unsightly grey skin discolouration. Argyria is extremely rare and associated with ingestion of large quantities of soluble silver compounds, salts or silver nitrate. There are no known cases of Argyria being caused by modern Colloidal Silver products manufactured correctly.
In the early 1900s, a number of reports can be found in British and American medical journals on the use of silver for a variety of diseases. Australian Dr Keith Courteney has summarised many of these early results in his book Colloidal Silver (Oracle Press, Montville, Qld, 1999; available in UK from Nexus Publications: 01342 322854) which while in need of judicious editing, is a useful source of early applications.
Up until the War, silver was used as a mainstream anti-bactericide and anti-fungal both intravenously and intramuscularly, as a throat gargle, douche, orally, topically, and as eye drops. (Z Baranowski Colloidal Silver The Natural Antibiotic Alternative, Healing Wisdom Publications, NY, 1995). Evidence suggests that it has been used against some 650 bacteria and fungi.
Crude technology made it expensive to produce and with the post-war rise in pharmaceuticals, it rapidly felt into disuse in the new era of antibiotics. In the US the FDA classifies it as a pre 1938 drug and still allows it to be used so long as such products are 'advertised and labelled for the same use as in 1938 and manufactured in the original manner.'
In the 1970's silver began something of a comeback. Dr Cart Moyer at the University of Washington worked with biochemist Dr Harry Margraf to find a better treatment for burn victims. Initially they used silver nitrate but finding that it was corrosive and painful, diluted it to a 0.5% solution and observed that it killed Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria and allowed wounds to heal (Surgical Forum 1966-17-76-8). No resistant strains appeared.
The discovery led to the increasing use of silver ions in burn and wound healing. After outbreaks of Legionnaire's Disease in Britain during the 1980s silver was eventually found to be effective in treating it. Experiments showed that even at lower water temperatures, ionisation of soft water with silver and copper ions was effective against the bacteria. Silver is now used in modern water purification systems. Many airlines use silver water filters and NASA used a silver system for the Space Shuttle.
In the 1990's further research was carried out at various US centres. Dr Margaret Bayer at the Fox Chase Cancer Centre in Philadelphia showed that the growth and spread of Lyme's Disease bacteria (Borrelia burgdorfen spirochetes) are measurably slowed or stopped by colloidal silver in vitro (Courteney, op crt, p. 27). Courteney also reports that at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia Professor of Microbiology Dr Helen Buckly found that growth of several varieties of Candida Albicans (yeast strains) and several cryptococcus neo-formans strains were blocked by very small doses of in vitro colloidal silver.
