The following blog post The Benefits Of Colloidal Silver: The Most Potent Natural Antibiotic was originally seen on http://fabriziofusco.com
A common antibiotic can kill perhaps a half-dozen different germs.
Colloidal silver kills some 650 different pathogens.
And resistant strains fail to develop.
Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic.
Silver is the best germ fighter we have.
How Colloidal Silver works
Colloidal silver is a powerful, natural “antibiotic” to be used against every kind of infection.
It has the potential to kill 650 different micro-organisms, many of which are associated with human diseases.
The presence of colloidal silver near a bacterium, virus, fungus or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say.
Within a few minutes (about six minutes), the pathogen suffocates and dies. Then it 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 single-celled life.
Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.
We have all heard of the “super-germs” that are resistant to most modern antibiotics.
This isn’t the case with colloidal silver, indeed single- celled pathogens 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 taken.
It truly is a safe, natural remedy for many diseases.
Unlike conventional antibiotics, colloidal silver doesn’t have a significant impact on the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract and intestines.
However, to be prudent, I recommend supplementing with a probiotic when using any silver product on a regular basis or when using a silver product abundantly on a short-term basis.
Indeed, it’s often advisable to supplement with a probiotic regardless of whether you are using a silver product or not.

Why Colloidal Silver is not used today
Colloidal silver was in common use until 1938. It was used by physicians as a mainstream antibiotic treatment and was considered quite “high-tech.” Production methods, however, were costly.
The pharmaceutical industry moved in, causing colloidal research to be set aside in favor of fast working and financially lucrative drugs.
Since this monopoly has been established, colloidal silver is not recognized at all as a powerful natural antibiotic. It can only be sold and advertised as a supplement.
Also, traditional medicine tries to discourage the use of silver by taking into account the risk of skin discoloration called argyria.
While this risk actually exists, it is really difficult to overdose and cause your skin to become blue-grayish. The few cases of argyria that exist are the result of extremely irresponsible practices.
“Even the most powerful pharmaceutical antibiotics are effective against only a small number of microorganisms, and then only until drug-resistant strains develop. Yet, research at Washington University School of Medicine has shown that silver is bactericidal to nearly 650 different disease-causing organisms, and that silver–resistant bacteria strains do not develop.” – Science Digest
“I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes.” – Dr. Henry Crooks
“Larry C. Ford, MD, documented over 650 different disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver.” – Dr. Axe
How to use Colloidal Silver
The main method to take colloidal silver is oral administration. However, this powerful mineral can be used in many other ways as well.
1. Oral Administration
Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells.
A regular daily intake as a protection enhances the immunity system since is like having a second defense system.
During acute infections (flu, sore throat, cold, …) a higher dosage is able to quickly fight off the pathogens.
The directions reported on the product often refer to the safe amount to be taken using it daily for the whole life.
For a short term use (at most 10 days) to fight off acute infections, you can safely use up to ten times that amount.
If your body is extremely ill or toxic, don’t 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.
Regular bowel movements are a must in order to relieve the discomforts of detoxification.
2. Nasal Spray Misters
Colloidal silver is also sold in nasal spray misters to reach the sinuses and nasal passages.
3. Spray Bottles
Spray bottles have been used for topical use on skin, sore throat, eyes, burns, etc.
4. Colloidal Silver Cream
For topical use, colloidal silver is also sold as a cream and can be applied directly to cuts, scrapes, and open sores, or on a bandage for warts. It can also be applied on eczema, itches, acne, psoriasis, bug bites and so on.
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.
