Colloidal Silver for Colds, Flu, Infection
Silver has been known for it's health properties before the time of Julius Caesar. The Greeks lined water and wine urns with silver to kill bacteria. The Romans used a silver poultice to help heal cuts, burns and sores. In the 14th Century when Europe was experiencing the bubonic plague, wealthy people gave children silver spoons to suck on to prevent them from succumbing to the disease. American settlers put silver dollars in milk to deter its spoilage in warm weather. Since 1884, a mild silver solution has been put in newborns in many countries to reduce eye infections.
Medical research on silver dropped off around the 1940s and 50s when penicillin became a more popular antibiotic. In 1963 however, once again doctors found colloidal silver (silver ground and suspended in water) was good for destroying yeast and fungi.
Technology now provides for a more practical creation of colloidal silver by using electricity to break down silver particles so they can be suspended or dissolved in water. This electrically generated colloidal silver can be taken orally, sprayed on a wound, or used as a topical disinfectant.
Colloidal silver is a natural germ fighter and can be used for colds and flu caused by virus and bacteria. Most people that regularly use silver start taking it orally when they first feel signs of a sore throat or cold symptoms. Some people suggest 1/4 to 1 teaspoon twice a day to fight infections. Practitioners might suggest higher dosages. Colloidal silver has multiple uses for animal health as well as human.
Colloidal silver can be purchased in most health food stores or through many online sources. Silver making machines are also available for making your own batches.
