Colloidal silver has been long used as medicine and despite the fact that its use discontinued in 1938 when manufactured drugs became the norm, people continued to use it as a homeopathic treatment. While many studies suggest that silver doesn’t affect the human body, it still offers amazing benefits that can be barely matched by any manufactured drug today.
It is non-toxic to humans but it kills off 650 different types of bacteria, viruses and fungi, which makes it superior to five or ten different targets per antibiotic drug. Those single-celled organisms are too simple to deal with the silver ions, which are bioactive in their most basic form. Given the fact that many types of body invaders are destroyed by silver, it can clear many maladies from the human body. Among them are:
This disease is manifested by an easily inflamed skin, usually due to the presence of bacterial. Given the fact that colloidal silver eliminates these bacteria, it helps reduce the inflammation.
When the tonsils themselves become infected, the condition is called tonsillitis. Removing the tonsils is not the only treatment and colloidal silver can reduce the infection is most instances.
3. Common Warts
Warts occur as a result of the virus which infects the skin and they are quite difficult to remove. Even though treating them with colloidal silver takes time, it works wonders in almost all cases.
Tuberculosis is caused by bacterial infections within the lungs and it can be effectively treated with a colloidal silver inhaler, which is superior to standard pharmaceutical drugs which are often more expensive as well.
5. Yeast Infection
A vaginal yeast infection means that too many yeast cells are growing in the vagina. The silver ions prevent the yeast from growing and eventually the yeast cells die.
The herpes virus can also be suppressed with colloidal silver, which can be taken both topically when flare-ups occur or orally.
7. Ear Infections
Since colloidal silver kills off any bacteria which can cause an ear infection, it is extremely effective at treating ear infections. All you have to do is to pour the silver into your ear as any other liquid.
8. Eye Infections
Besides being effective as an antibacterial solution, it doesn’t affect the tissues and thus you will not feel any pain from the treatment. It can be even used on an infant`s eye infection.
Psoriasis occurs in the presence of skin irritating bacteria, like those that cause acne by clogging the pores. You can use colloidal silver topically as an antibacterial agent.
Acne is usually caused by bacteria that clog the pores and colloidal silver is effective at eliminating them by killing off bacteria and clearing pores. It can be used as a face wash and applied directly to the skin.
11. Sinus Issues
Sinus issues are generally caused by some form of infection, whether it is bacterial or viral. Colloidal silver kills many germs which cause sinus issues and it can be applied with a nasal inhaler.
12. Most Flu Viruses
Colloidal silver is effective at destroying most of the common flu viruses and some research suggests that it can even kill off swine flu.
13. Common Cold
Given the fact that most colds are caused by simple viral infection, it can be treated with a nasal spray of colloidal silver. It is safe for all ages as it doesn’t affect human tissues.
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs caused by fungi, bacteria, or viruses. Antibiotics don’t always help and colloidal silver works better because it destroys both viral and bacterial infections.
Although limited research has been done on the subject, it has been shown that colloidal silver can reduce the population of virus in patients and reduce its activity.
If we take into consideration its antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and disinfectant properties, it doesn’t come as a surprise that it has continued to be used over 75 years after becoming obsolete by the pharmaceutical industry.
