This is relatively new in the alternative treatment spectrum but it is very effective as an antibiotic.
It is available in a gel or liquid form and can significantly reduce the length and severity of almost any type of bacterial infection. The best type of colloidal silver is produced with a highly technical electro colloidal process using electrical current. The process allows for extremely fine particles to be suspended indefinitely in a solution of steam distilled water, replacing the need for any chemical or stabilizers and making a true colloidal clotuoiton.
Colloidal silver works by destroying the enzyme responsible in the bacteria or virus, for cellular respiration- depriving the organism from breathing and preventing them from developing resistance and immunity. Colloidal silver is toxic to at least 650 pathogens including fungi, protozoa and parasite eggs.
Colloidal silver can be used topically for burns, cuts, bug bites, dermatitis, rashes and abscesses. Taken orally in small doses it fights cold, flu, eye infections, and other invading infectious agents. It is not toxic, will not suppress the immune system and does not damage the friendly bacteria in the lower gut.
Silver occurs naturally in soil as a trace mineral but because our soils are depleted of these elements, they are no longer available to us except as supplements.
Colloidal silver is tasteless, odorless and does not sting topically. It does not interfere with other drugs but if taken in large doses can cause nausea.
You get what you pay for so make sure you are buying a high quality colloidal silver. One reliable source for colloidal silver is Nannosil (www.harmonixtherapy.com.
I have used this on my cats as a topical rinse for skin issues and given it to them in water for health issues. I have also taken it for myself for fungus infections. It is a product that should be in everyone's first aid kit.
