Silver and its Early Uses

Man's use of silver as a disinfectant dates back to our earliest recorded history.
The Greeks and others used silver vessels for water and other liquids to keep them fresh.

The Egyptians used silver as a thin beaten paper-like product and wrapped it around wounds to avoid infection.

The Druids lined their drinking vessels with the metal for disinfecting and sanitizing water.

It was observed that those ancient families who ate from silver utensils rarely were sick and had few infections. This knowledge passed on to kings, emperors, sultans and their families and members of their royal courts. They ate from silver plates, drank from silver cups, used silver utensils and stored their food in silver containers.

Generations ago, pioneers trekking across the Wild West in the US faced many hardships. Keeping safe drinking water was one of them. Bacteria, algae, etc., found a fertile breeding ground in wooden casks, which were carried by the wagons. They placed silver coins in the casks to retard the growth of the spoilage organisms. They also placed silver coins in their milk to keep it fresh.

Settlers in the Australian outback suspended silverware in the water tanks to retard spoilage.

Wrapping wounds in silver foil was a common treatment around the turn of the century to prevent infection.

Eventually, man learned to make silver nitrate and use it in wounds as an antibiotic. But silver nitrate is a silver salt and is caustic, and therefore burns tissue, much like iodine.

These early, unstable and crudely made silver solutions were sometimes injected directly into the body, taken orally or applied topically. Remarkably, there were no significant side effects.

Silver in the Colloidal Form

The comeback of silver in medicine began in the 1970’s when the late Carl Moyer, chairman of Washington University’s Department of Surgery, received a grant to develop better treatments for burn victims. Dr. Harry Margraf, as the chief biochemist, worked with Dr. Moyer and other surgeons to find an antiseptic strong enough, yet safe to use over large areas of the body. Silver has always been one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is non-toxic.

Reviewing medical literature, Dr. Margraf found repeated references to silver. It was described as a catalyst that disables the enzymes microorganisms depend on to “breathe”. Consequently, they die.

Medical journal reports from the early 1900’s demonstrated that a properly prepared colloid of silver was the only form of silver solution that was not deposited under the skin, no matter how many times the proper amount was administered.


Silver as a Bactericide and Disinfectant


Jim Powell reported in a Science Digest article in March 1978, titled “Our Mightiest Germ Fighter”: “Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills hundreds. Additionally, silver-resistant strains fail to develop”.

While silver has been used for centuries to purify water, modern ionization technology was developed by the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) in the early days of the space program as a lightweight method of purifying recycled water on spacecrafts.

In the United States and Canada, more than 100 hospitals have installed silver-based water purifying systems to eradicate Legionnaire’s disease, a deadly bacteria that infects hot water pipes and storage tanks in large buildings.

Antibiotic resistance is quickly becoming a public health nightmare. Traditional antibiotics continue to lose their ability to kill certain strains of bacteria. To date, nearly every disease causing organism known has become resistant to at least one antibiotic, and several are immune to more than one. Scientists have known since the dawn of antibiotic age that the more an antibiotic is used, the quicker it tends to become useless due to bacterial resistance.

Silver helps rebuild tissue (Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

The mechanism by which silver ions help rebuild tissue has been studied for more than a decade by Robert O. Becker, M.D. of Becker Biomagnetics in New York.

Dr. Becker initially reported his findings at the First International Conference on Silver and Gold in Medicine, co-sponsored by The Silver Institute in 1987. Since then, this technique has been used in clinical settings where hundreds of patients with various wounds have recovered. In addition, a laboratory study conducted by the US Army Institute for Surgical Research at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, showed that laboratory animals with burns treated under controlled conditions experienced shortened time for reconstruction with silver-nylon dressings.

Recovery of skin function was faster when electric current was applied compared to no application of electric current. Dr. Becker received a US patent for the devices, materials, and techniques involved in the regeneration of tissue using silver ions.

After several hundred cases, Dr. Becker believes that the technique works in three stages. The first stage is the chemical combination of highly active free silver ions with all bacteria or fungi present in the wound, which are inactivated within 20 to 30 minutes. The second stage occurs over the next few days. Silver acts on fibroblast cells to cause them to revert to their embryonic state, becoming stem cells. These cells are universal building blocks whose role is to reconstruct new tissue. In the final stage, silver ions form a complex with the living cells in the wound area to produce immediately convertible stem cells. The end result of this conversion is that the stem cells supply all the building blocks necessary to completely restore all anatomical structures.

Additional research by Dr. Becker indicated that during laboratory tests he conducted, cancer cells reverted to normal (not killed, but returned to normal). Other observations he and others have made are a correlation between silver deficiency and illness, proper immune system functioning, soft tissue and bone repair acceleration, the formation of cells that appear to be able to repair virtually any part of the body, reduction of inflammation, antimicrobial, antifungal, antibiotic properties, etc. All of these observations are yet to be fully understood.

No other known treatment provides sufficient numbers of the embryonic or stem cells required for true regeneration of damaged or destroyed tissues in human and animals. The success indicates that there is the potential not only for the healing of near-surface wounds, but also for regenerative repair of internal organs such as the heart, liver, brain, and the spinal cord.

Patients have found relief from staph, strep, prostate and sinus infections, as well as laryngitis and sore throats, when treated with colloidal silver, says Debra Brammer, N.D., a naturopathic physician and faculty member at Seattle-based Bastyr University. Though few medical professionals are familiar with colloidal silver, no one disputes the need for an alternative to traditional antibiotics. Its proponents cite decades of word of mouth supporting its effectiveness, as well as published clinical studies in Europe and Australia.

Colloidal Silver References
1) The FDA has stated that because colloidal silver has been in used for over 60 years (prior to 1938), it may continue to be marketed (Sept. 13, 1991, letter from consumer safety officer, Harold Davis, U.S. Food and Drug Administration). Additionally, the FDA has no jurisdiction over a pure, mineral element. However, the FDA restricts what can and cannot be said about colloidal silver and no claims can be made about its properties.

2) Dr. Robert Becker’s “The Body Electric” recognizes a correlation between low levels of silver and sickness. He stated that the silver deficiency is responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system. Dr. Becker’s research concluded that silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or damage to any cells of the body.

He also states that the silver was doing something more than killing disease-causing organisms. It was also causing major growth stimulation of injured tissue. Burn patients and even elderly patients noticed more rapid healing. And he discovered that all cancer cells change back to normal cells.

All strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics may be killed by colloidal silver.

(Professor of Bacteriology) University of London, published an article in The Lancet, back in Dec. 1944. In essence, it said that the typhoid bacillus, which they were working on, was killed outright by the silver colloid solution.

4) Alfred Searle, founder of the pharmaceutical conglomerate, wrote in 1919: “Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration, orally, or hypodermically, it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to parasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable”.

6) Alexander Tomasz, M.D. of the Rockefeller University of New York City, states: “Common bacteria that cause pneumonia, children’s ear infections and many other diseases are evolving into forms untreatable by all known medicines, threatening a frightening post-antibiotic era that is a looming medical disaster”.

7) “Silver our mightiest Germ Fighter”, Science Digest of March 1978. As an antibiotic, silver kills hundreds of disease-causing organisms, and resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is absolutely non-toxic and the best all round germ fighter that we have. Doctors are reporting that, taken internally, it works in cases of syphilis, cholera, malaria, diabetes and severe burns. Richard L. Davies, executive director of The Silver Institute, which monitors silver technology in 37 countries, reports: “In four years, we’ve described 87 important new medical uses for silver”.

8) Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, has used silver in his cancer cure method for many years. He says the whole thing is very simple. This brought rapid remission in patients given up by other doctors.

9) Rather than in a chemical compound, silver, in a colloidal state, may be applied in a much-concentrated form, with corresponding better results.

10) According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Poison Control Center, colloidal silver is considered harmless. Dr Samuel Etris, a senior consultant at The Silver Institute, reports that there has never been any allergic, toxic, or carcinogenic reactions to colloidal silver. The U.S. Government's Center for Disease Control confirmed that fact in 1995.

Colloidal Silver: A Near Perfect Antibiotic (Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

Research has shown that colloidal silver is a powerful, natural antibiotic and preventative against infections. Acting as a catalyst, colloidal silver has been shown to disable the enzyme that single celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need to metabolize oxygen. They suffocate without corresponding harm occurring to human enzymes or parts of the human body chemistry. The result is the destruction of disease causing organisms in the body and in food. Colloidal silver was in common use until 1938 when the medical profession turned its attention to pharmaceutical drugs.
Early Research

At the turn of the century, scientists had discovered that the body's most important fluids are colloidal in nature: suspended ultra-fine particles. Blood, for example, carries nutrition and oxygen to the body cells. This led to studies with colloidal silver. Prior to 1938, colloidal silver was used by physicians as a mainstream antibiotic treatment and was considered quite "high-tech". Production methods, however, were costly. Then the pharmaceutical industry moved in, causing colloidal research to be set aside in favor of fast working, more toxic and potentially dangerous drugs.
Contemporary Studies

While studying regeneration of limbs, spinal cords and organs in the late 1970s, Robert O. Becker, MD., 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 1970s: "Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have."
How It Works

The presence of colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to speak. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive singe-celled life. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.
Product Quality

Many brands of colloidal silver are inferior. The highest grade is produced by the electro-colloidal / non-chemical method where the silver particles and water have been collided, i.e., dispersed within and bound to each other by an electric current. The super-fine silver particles are suspended indefinitely in demineralized water. Ideally, colloidal silver is clear. Darker colors 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. Some brands with high concentrations of silver may actually not be completely safe. High concentrations of silver do not kill disease germs more effectively than the safe range of 5 to 15 parts per million (ppm.).

Ingesting Colloidal Silver (Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

Taken orally, the colloidal silver is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption. Colloidal silver is completely eliminated form the body by the kidneys, lymph system and bowls after several weeks. If routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, to have continuous protection, some recommend a regular daily intake of colloidal silver. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of colloidal silver may hasten healing, reducing the possibility of infection and scar tissue. (A fine spray mist or compress soaked in colloidal silver can also be very helpful.) It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that the lives of millions of people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.

Chronic or Serious Conditions
(Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

One teaspoon of 10 ppm. colloidal silver equals about 50 micrograms (mcg.) of silver. One to three teaspoons per day (50-150 mcg.) is generally considered to be a "nutritional amount" and is reported to be safe to use for extended periods of time. Amounts higher than this are generally considered "therapeutic amounts" and should only be used periodically. In cases of illness, natural health practitioners have often recommended taking double or triple the "nutritional amount" for 30 to 45 days, then dropping down to a smaller, maintenance dose. Amounts from 3-32 ounces per day have reportedly been used in acute conditions.

If your body is extremely ill or toxic, do not be in a hurry to clear up everything at once. If pathogens are killed off too quickly, the body's five eliminatory channels (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs and bowel) may be temporarily overloaded, causing flu-like conditions, headache, extreme fatigue, dizziness, nausea or aching muscles. Ease off on the colloidal silver to a smaller amount and increase your distilled water intake. Regular bowel movements are a must in order to relieve the discomforts of detoxification. Resolve to reduce sugar and saturated fats from the diet, and exercise more. Given the opportunity, the body's natural ability to heal may amaze you.
Topical Uses

Some have used colloidal silver in a nasal spray mister to reach the sinuses and nasal passages. Spray bottles have been used for topical use on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, skin, soar throat, eyes, burns, etc. Colloidal silver is painless on cuts, abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils for a stuffy nose, and even in a baby's eyes because, unlike some antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells. It's excellent as an underarm deodorant, since most underarm odor is caused by bacteria breaking down substances released by the sweat glands.

Some Common Uses of Colloidal Silver
(Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

Natural health practitioners have for years recommended taking one tablespoon daily, for four days, to establish a level, then one half-tablespoon daily for maintenance (proportional to body weight for children). After six weeks, a pause of several weeks has also been recommended by some natural healing arts doctors. Also, colloidal silver can be applied directly to burns, cuts, scrapes, and open sores, or on a bandage for warts. It can be applied on eczema, itches, acne, sunburns or bug bites. To purify water, add one tablespoon per gallon, shake well and wait six minutes. Mixed this way it's tasteless. It is not an allopathic poison.

Veterinary and Garden Use

Colloidal silver has worked just as well on pets of all kinds. Used in proportion to the body weight, it should bring the same results. In the garden, field or greenhouse, add enough to the water or soil and the plants will do the rest.

Tolerance To Disease Organisms (Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

We have all heard of the "super-germs" that are resistant to most modern antibiotics. Some believe that single-celled germs cannot mutate into silver- resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver would develop through mutation. Also, colloidal silver has not been demonstrated to interact or interfere with other medicines being take. Inside the body, silver apparently does not form toxic compounds or react with anything other than a germs oxygen-metabolizing enzyme.

Colloidal silver may truly be a safe, natural remedy for may of mankind's ills. Additionally, there has never been a drug interaction reported between colloidal silver and any other medications. It's difficult to overdose, unless extremely large amounts are ingested. Colloidal silver has been reported by users to be both a remedy and a prevention for numerous infections, colds, flus, and fermentation's due to various bacteria, viruses or fungi, even the non-apparent low-grade, general body infections many people have.

Living organisms are in the colloidal-chemical state, not the crystalline state. The body may more readily assimilate substances already in that form. Colloidal silver is the most useable form of a reputedly effective germ fighter. A colloidal suspension is ultra-fine particles of one substance, suspended by an electric charge in another substance. Homogenized milk and aerosol sprays are colloidal suspensions. Colloidal silver is pure metallic silver (not a chemical compound) of particles 15 atoms or fewer, each with a positive electric charge, and attached to a molecule of simple protein. This new particle floats in pure water. The electric charge is stronger than gravity so the silver particles don't sink.
Colloidal Silver in Advance of Illness

When the possibility of germ exposure is higher, colloidal silver can be take orally each day or applied topically when there is a skin problem. It's like having a second defense system. The silver acts only as a catalyst and is stabilized. It is non-toxic, except to single cell pathogenic organisms, and is non-addictive. It also, apparently, kills parasites in the single cell stage of their life cycle. Older folks reportedly feel younger because their body energies are used up constantly fighting disease. Digestion has also been reportedly better.

Medical research has shown the silver promotes more rapid healing, with less scar tissue, even in the case of severe burns. Successes have been reported in cases that previously have been given up on by established doctors. Colloidal silver is tasteless and won't sting even a baby's eyes, and won't upset your stomach.

More Than 650 Diseases Helped (Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

Colloidal silver has been reported to kill 650 microorganisms, many of which are associated with human diseases. This does not automatically mean that taking silver will cure diseases caused by these germs. Colloidal silver only kills microorganisms when they are in contact with it for a sufficient period of time. The human body is a complex system which may prevent high enough concentrations of colloidal silver from reaching the affected area.

The basic guideline that has been recommended for using colloidal silver is that it usually works if you can get a high enough concentration to the affected area. Some will want to experiment with higher amounts (such as 8 or more ounces at a time) to find out what it takes to accomplish this. Do not use colloidal silver if you are allergic to contact with silver metals, or if you notice any digestive upset after use.
The following is a partial list of the more that 650 diseases that colloidal silver has been reputed to be successful against:

acne, AIDS, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, athletes foot, bladder inflammation, blood parasites, blood poisoning, boils, burns, cancer, candida, cholera, colitis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, dermatitis, diabetes, dysentery, eczema, fibrositis, gastritis, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, impetigo, indigestion, keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, neurasthenia, parasitic infections: viral, fungal and bacterial pneumonia, pleurisy, prostate, pruritus ani, psoriasis, purulent opthalmia, rhinitis, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth, and throat, seborrhea, septicemia, shingles, skin cancer, staphylococcus and streptococcus infections, stomach flu, syphilis, thyroid, tuberculosis, tonsillitis, toxemia, trachoma, all forms of virus, warts, whooping cough, yeast infection, stomach ulcer, canine parovirus and other veterinary uses, and fungal and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted silver on the leaves and add to the soil.

Why take Colloidal Silver? (Statements made on this web site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease)

Most people take colloidal silver to cure infections, boost immunity and prevent colds, flu and other infections.

Colloidal silver is a completely natural, liquid mineral supplement found in almost every health food store in North America. It is much like mineral water, except that in this case, the only minerals in the water are tiny, sub-microscopic particles of pure silver.

Pure silver, by itself, has been known for thousands of years to have powerful, broad-spectrum infection-fighting qualities. So when the process for making colloidal silver was discovered in the late 1800's, shortly after Edison harnessed electricity, it immediately became a popular natural infection-fighting agent, used both topically on cuts, burns and infections, and internally as a remedy for a wide variety of infectious diseases.

Numerous medical studies were conducted on colloidal silver throughout the early 1900's, and the substance was used in hospitals and laboratories around the world, in a wide variety of forms, to help fight infection and disease. Studies documenting its phenomenal infection-fighting qualities were written up in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the British medical journal Lancet, and many others. Indeed, as far back as 1919, Alfred Searle, founder of the giant Searle Pharmaceuticals firm, had written, "Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results...it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to parasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. It protects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus or diphtheria toxin."

How Is It Made? - Colloidal silver is made through a simple electromagnetic process that pulls microscopic particles of silver from a larger piece of pure silver immersed in water. These tiny silver particles are held in suspension in the resulting solution by the electric charge on each atom. When ingested, these tiny particles of silver travel throughout your body like any other mineral before being excreted through your normal channels of elimination.

100 Year Medical History - The simple process for producing colloidal silver was developed shortly after Edison harnessed electricity in 1892. It was then used for decades by doctors, in a variety of forms and under a variety of brand names, as a natural infection-fighting agent. But it fell out of widespread usage after the advent of prescription antibiotics in the 1940's.

Then, in the mid-1970's colloidal silver experienced a dramatic resurgence in popularity after doctors discovered that many pathogens were developing immunity to prescription antibiotics, but not to pure, elemental silver. According to science writer Jim Powell in the March 1978 issue of Science Digest, "Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is re-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."

Where Can It Be Found? - Colloidal silver is widely available through health food stores and on the internet. There are literally thousands of vendors across the United States and Canada, offering a variety of colloidal silver products for about $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. That's quite expensive, when you consider how quickly a tiny four-ounce bottle might be used up.

The Bottom Line - For thousands of years silver has been recognized as one of nature's most powerful natural infection-fighting agents. And today, colloidal silver is one of the most popular nutritional supplements in the world.

What's more, if current medical research on silver itself continues to demonstrate how effective it is against drug-resistant pathogens, it may well turn out to be an important part of the solution to today's frightening infectious disease crisis in which multiple drug-resistant pathogens simply no longer respond to traditional prescription antibiotics.
