“...too many contradictory studies on colloidal silver...”
Yes, there are many contradictory studies because of the agenda of some doing studies...there is nothing contradictory about the results gleaned from using colloidal silver. Also, some of the studies have used ionic silver, not colloidal silver...big difference. Some years ago researchers, when dimes were real silver, would put a dime in a petri dish to steralize it in the lab. The many benefits of silver predate antibiotics, predate modern medicine. And bacteria, virus, mold does cannot develop a resistance to it.
A colloid is a substance of ultramicroscopic particles. Colloidal silver is nothing more than very tiny particles of pure silver suspended in distilled water through the process of electrolysis. The smaller the particles in CS the better the body can assimilate them. When current is applied to silver in solution the particles that break off will always be the same size: 1.26 angstroms (.000126 microns). This is so small that its nearest rival is an atom. Colloidal silver is odorless, tasteless and has no known negative reaction to any medication, health problem, diet, or artificial alteration to the human body. It is considered to be Creator God’s natural antibiotic provided for the good health of the people of planet Earth.
Silver has been known to be a bactericide for at least 1200 years. Even in ancient times, it was known to prevent disease, and it was said that disease could not be transmitted in drinking from a silver cup. Silver coins were commonly dropped into a jar to prevent the spoilage of milk and other drink, and silver containers were used to prolong the freshness of foods in general.
UCLA ran some tests on Colloidal Silver and their report states: “The silver solutions were antibacterial for Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Neisseria gonorrhea, Gardnerella Vaginalis, Salmonella Typhi, and other enteric pathogens, fungicidal for Candida albicans, Candida globata, and M. furfur, and it killed every virus that was tested in the lab”.
Other voices in the medical community are saying
Dr. Hirschberg, John Hopkins: “...remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states”.
Dr. Henry Cooks: “I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory tests within six minutes”.
Dr. Gary Smith: “When silver was present the cancer cell was de-differentiated and the body was restored”.
I hope, Ellendra, you do not find this info too contradictory...
