Our Health & Our Freedom of Choice
“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” — Thomas Jefferson
Healthcare Choice Is A Right Secured by Common Law
How to best care for our health, whether with mainstream “medicine” or by means of supplement, nutrition, or any other method that one deems proper and best is a Right secured by Common Law for each living Man and Woman not ‘Person’. The healthcare war that is being waged today between the MRHA/FDA and their puppet masters, The (P)harma-Industrial Complex and the People is not new to western culture, nor is the use of courts by an organized group to force their tyranny upon others. Groups advocating monopolies for their “select and enlightened clicks” have been at work for centuries trying to steal the Right of healthcare choice from the People.
Many British people have found themselves in breach of the Cancer Act and other Acts, Rules and Regulations for recommending as an example: B17 or apricot seeds to ‘cure cancer’. As British people we are protected by Common Law. Among the Laws of England so adopted is the Herbalist’s Charter which was brought in by an Act of Henry the Eighth.
The good-news is the charter extends to all British Colonies still today. According to Ralph Fucetola, JD, “When the American Colonies declared their independence as Sovereign States, in July, 1776, they each adopted the Laws of England as the Common Law of the State. Among the Laws of England so adopted is the Herbalist’s Charter, an Act of Henry the Eighth (in the Eighth Year of his reign). It is astonishing to note that many of the issues confronting alternative practitioners today are the same issues which the Act of Parliament addressed. In the Sixteenth Century, as in the Twentieth Century, licensed physicians and surgeons were going to Court to ban the activities of the alternative practitioners of their day, the herbalists. Parliament ordered an end to this misuse of the Courts to enforce license, protecting the nutritionists from “suit, vexation, trouble, penalty, or loss of their goods…” This ancient Act of Parliament applied to England and the King’s “other dominions” including, of course, the American Colonies, and later, States. This Act has never been repealed, and thus remains part of our Common Law to this day, offering protection to alternative practitioners, “at all Time from henceforth…” as a perpetual Charter of Rights.”
Herbalist’s Charter of Henry the VIII, 1543 A.D.
“An Act that Persons, Being None Common Surgeons, May Administer Outward Medicines”
“Where in the Parliament holden at Westminster in the third Year of the King’s most gracious Reign, amongst other Things, for the avoiding of Sorceries, Witchcrafts and other Inconveniences, it was enacted, that no Person within the City of London, nor within Seven Miles of the same, should take upon him to exercise and occupy as Physician or Surgeon, except he be first examined, approved, and admitted by the Bishop of London and other, under and upon certain Pains and Penalties in the same Act mentioned;
“Sithence the making of which said Act, the Company and Fellowship of Surgeons of London, minding only their own Lucres and nothing the Profit or ease of the Diseased or Patient, have sued, troubled and vexed divers honest Persons, as well as Men and Women, whom God hath endued with the Knowledge of the Nature, Kind and Operation of certain Herbs, Roots and Waters, and the using and ministering of them to such as been pained with customable Diseases, as Women’s Breasts beings sore, a Pin and the Web in the Eye, Uncomis of Hands, Burnings, Scaldings, Sore Mouths, the Stone, Strangury, Saucelim and Morphew, and such other like Diseases; and yet the said Persons have not taken anything for their Pains or Cunning, but have ministered the same to poor People only for Neighborhood and God’s sake, and of Pity and Charity:
“And it is now well known that the Surgeons admitted will do no Cure to any Person but where they shall be rewarded with a greater Sum or Reward that the Cure extendeth unto; for in the case they would minister the Cunning unto sore People unrewarded, there should not so many rot and perish to death for Lack or Help of Surgery as daily do; but the greatest part of Surgeons admitted been much more to be blamed than those Persons that they troubled, for although the most Part of the Persons of the said Craft of Surgeons have small Cunning yet they will take great sums of Money, and do little therefore, and by Reason thereof they do oftentimes impair and hurt their Patients, rather than do them good.
“In consideration whereof, and for the Ease, Comfort, Succour, Help, Relief and Health of the King’s poor Subjects, Inhabitants of this Realm, now pained or diseased:
“Be it ordained, established and enacted, by Authority of this present Parliament, That at all Time from henceforth it shall be lawful to every Person being the King’s subject, having Knowledge and Experience of the Nature of Herbs, Roots and Waters, or of the Operation of the same, by Speculation or Practice, within any part of the Realm of England, or within any other the King’s Dominions, to practice, use and minister in and to any outward Sore, Uncome Wound, Aposelmations, outward Swelling or Disease, any Herb or Herbs, Ointments, Baths, Pultess, and Emplaisters, according to their Cunning, Experience and Knowledge in any of the Diseases, Sorea and Maladies before said, and all other like to the same, or Drinks for the Stone, Strangury or Agues, without suit, vexation, trouble, penalty or loss of their goods;
“The foresaid Statute in the foresaid Third Year of the King’s most gracious Reign, or any other Act, Ordinance or Statues the contrary heretofore made in anywise, not withstanding.”
Know your Rights or you will not know what is being pillaged from you by others and your own “government”.
So for those who today are still being persecuted for promoting such things as apricot seeds or colloidal silver this charter may well be of use.

BANNED! – MANKIND’S OLDEST NATURAL ANTIBIOTIC
The following is an extract from www.soundonsilver.com that has 100s of medical research references relating to colloidal silver. It is easy to see why the MRHA/FDA wish to ban Colloidal Silver.
Colloidal silver is mankind’s oldest natural anti-biotic and anti-viral. As its use has increased in popularity in recent years with each new scare of a plague or pandemic, so has the controversy about its effectiveness, how to use it and how much to use. For those of you who are looking for an article packed with scientific jargon and molecular theory, “this won’t be it.” This article is intended to be nothing more or less than my own experience from many years of using and producing colloidal silver. It also includes my personal observations and my knowledge of the experience of others in the effective and common sense use of colloidal silver. Most colloidal silver producers claim their products are “silver bullets” in the fight against everything from common cold germs to the Ebola virus. Opposing views claim that it is nothing but junk science quackery and often little more than “silver tongued” misinformation. But the truly misinformed are the often well-educated mainstream thinking individuals who narrow-mindedly dismiss, not only the long historical use, but the hard science behind colloidal silver in the fight against pathogens.
Dr Bob Beck Protocol ‘How To Make Colloidal Silver’ Original Footage.
DOES COLLOIDAL SILVER REALLY KILL GERMS?
By far the most frequent questions we receive here at www.soundonsilver.com concerning colloidal silver are, “Does colloidal silver really work to kill germs?” and “How much colloidal silver must I use for it to be effective?” The first question is a moot point in any real world science; the mineral silver kills one-celled organisms (germs), period. This is not opinion; it is simply fact based first of all on long historical use that is as well known as is the fact that Columbus sailed to America in 1492 or that George Washington was the first American President. Any statement to the contrary is where the real misinformation, quackery, and lack of science truly lies. This opinion is primarily the domain of the “medicine mafia” trying their damnedest to discredit colloidal silver in order to protect their own unsafe and more often than not ineffective ‘medicines’. These attempts to discredit colloidal silver deserve the same attention as does someone claiming that planet Earth is shaped like a sugar cube.
IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOSTER
The effective use of colloidal silver (silver particles suspended in a liquid medium) and other silver products such as ionic silver, mild silver protein, and chemical silvers cannot be uniformly defined as to ‘what is an effective amount to use’ to fit every person, every situation, every ailment. It is also impossible to know what is an adequate maintenance amount for everyone in every situation. The amounts of colloidal silver that can boost and enhance the body’s immune system over time, such as the often recommended one to three teaspoons per day, are generally not enough for therapeutic use if one is trying to heal an issue such as Hep-C, Crohn’s or even food poisoning, a cold, or influenza. I have found that regular ‘maintenance’ amounts of colloidal silver up to ¼ oz. per day tends to boost the immune system against catching everything that may be going around, but certainly does not preclude one from catching anything at all.
The truth is, an occasional manageable cold or virus is not necessarily a bad thing, because these also serve to boost the body’s immune system. Having said that, with the regular use of colloidal silver a greater degree of immunity can be developed from frequent and debilitating infections or at the very least, they become much milder and of shorter duration. So how much colloidal silver is necessary to do what we want it to do, which is either ‘to boost our immune system to keep us from getting sick (or not as sick) or to heal us of some more serious condition?
COLLOIDAL SILVER VS. IONIC SILVER
I only advocate and recommend the common sense use of colloidal silver, which is silver particles suspended in water; or ionic silver, which is silver ions suspended in water or a combination of these products. Colloidal (particle) silver products are best for any condition in the stomach and beyond, because of the difficulty that ions have in surviving the hydrochloric acid in the stomach. But ionic silver products are just as good topically or any place that doesn’t have to pass thru the stomach. If you must use ionic silver orally, be sure and take it well before or after a meal so that the stomach acid level is at its lowest. I also believe that the sublingual use of colloidal silver or ionic silver is an effective way to get it into the bloodstream effectively. This is when the silver product is held in the mouth under the tongue for a time without swallowing, so that it can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream by way of the many small capillaries.
POTENTIAL MINERALS TOXICITY
There are many minerals that you cannot live without, but almost all of them are toxic in excess or if the body is unable to properly break them down and assimilate them. We can’t live with iron, but it can be one of the most toxic and can do irreparable damage to the liver. Too much of the wrong kinds of calcium (such as calcium citrate) cannot be assimilated and can end up being stored in the joints causing Arthritis, in the tissue causing stiff muscles, or in the arteries causing clogging. Similar toxicities also exist with most minerals, including zinc, chromium, copper, and most others. When you read negative information about silver, which may be the safest of all minerals, you must follow the money to find the truth. In doing so you will find it stops in the dark back alleys of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. Antibiotics are one of their most profitable of patented “medicines” and they will not tolerate any competition from something as lowly and common as colloidal silver.
We should be reasonable with anything we put into our bodies, even supplements; we can’t live without iron, but too much can cause liver failure. An aspirin or two will kill a headache, a bottle of aspirin can kill you. This holds true with anything you consume; there is a toxic effect level with almost all products. Iron and copper are essential for healthy bodies and their deficiencies can be devastating to the body’s chemistry, but there are levels at which they too can cause adverse effects. Plain water consumed excessively can cause death by diluting and depleting the body’s electrolytes. The bottom line is, when you consider the tens of thousands of deaths and organ failures caused by most over-the-counter (O-T-C) and other ‘MRHA/FDA approved medicines and medicines’, any risk with colloidal silver pales in comparison to any OTC pain killer medicine.
EFFECTIVE LEVELS OF COLLOIDAL SILVER
Back to the purpose of this article, which is to try to help develop a better grasp of effectively using colloidal silver. There is a minimal maintenance level of silver consumption at which our cells are able over time to develop a stronger immunity to germs, as is also true with a broad spectrum of minerals. But as with any other supplement, the effective amount needed can vary greatly depending on the individual body chemistry, body size, overall health, and lifestyle. The effective amount and maintenance requirements for sedentary individuals may not be adequate for more active people. As with all nutrients and minerals, they are constantly being depleted via sweating, urinating and stool elimination. .
HOW COLLOIDAL SILVER ACTUALLY WORKS
The unadulterated scientific fact is, colloidal silver kills germs; bacteria, virus, and fungi on contact; that no one can credibly deny. According to research by Beiersdorf the maker of Curad bandages and one of the world’s largest medical supply companies, “silver when brought into contact with germs inhibits their growth by deactivating their oxygen metabolism enzymes. In turn, this destroys the microbe’s cell membranes, stopping the replication of its DNA.” For therapeutic purposes, the silver key in the lock is bringing the colloidal silver particles into contact with the one-celled organisms causing the health problem. How easy or difficult that is depends on where the colloidal silver needs to go and how wide spread or systemic the microbial infection is.
For issues in the ears, eyes, sinuses, throat, and the skin, it is very simple matter, because there is easy access to those places. For ear infections, a colloidal silver flush works very well by lying on your side or tilting your head and simply filling the ear with either colloidal silver or ionic silver. Even a few drops may work on mild ear infections. For the eyes, drops will usually do the trick, but for more serious infections, an eye wash cup to do a colloidal silver flush is best. In the case of cuts and abrasions you can apply directly to the damaged area and for a puncture, a plastic squeeze/mist sprayer bottle can be used to ‘pressure force’ colloidal silver into the puncture wound. Just a mild warning here; there are beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin, just as there is in the digestive system, so any heavy use of or ‘flushing’ with colloidal silver should be specific to the affected area and should be short-term. If colloidal silver is overused, it can result in dry scaly and flakey epidermal layers by the die-off of beneficial bacteria. If you experience this, simply discontinue use for a short time and the skin will return to normal.
Colloidal silver and ionic silver are both very effective in getting rid of most conditions of the gums and can be a powerful deterrent to cavities by rinsing the mouth after brushing. Believe it or not, the best tooth paste I’ve ever used is a soap, Utopia Naturals Silver Aloe Skin Care Bar, made with colloidal silver, Aloe Vera, plant minerals and essential oil of juniper (itself an anti-bacterial agent). This unorthodox sounding ‘tooth paste’ was recommended to me by a retired lawyer/engineer and now south Texas rancher friend. I had sent him several bars to use as skin therapy since he spends most of his time out-of-doors working his cattle and goats and gets lots of abrasions and wind and sun damage to his skin. A month or so later, he called me and told me the story of how he had cured his gum infections using the skin therapy soap and rinsing with colloidal silver. He said he had developed a persistent gum problem that nothing seemed to get rid of, but as he was reading the ingredients of the soap one night, he thought, “There’s nothing in here that could be harmful, so why not try it as ‘toothpaste’?” Within two weeks, his gum problems had cleared up. Now, I use nothing else, although I have improved his discovery a little by sprinkling a bit of baking soda on the soap before applying it to my toothbrush. Of course after brushing, I rinse with a small amount of colloidal silver.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SKIN PROBLEMS
Apply directly to opened wounds and other wounds to eliminate surface infections. Contrary to other antiseptics, colloidal silver does not sting or burn. It kills the topical germs in less than six minutes, without harming any surrounding tissues.
Acne: Wash and rinse the face thoroughly four times a day; and after each rinsing, use a small amount of Colloidal Silver and massage it onto the problem areas two to three times with a finger or a tiny piece of cotton or tissue. This wash-rinse-massage activity may be continued throughout an acne breakout, or better, as a continuous prevention through the teen years. This continuous habit precludes breakouts, leaving the skin continuously clear.
Cuts and abrasions: Apply Colloidal Silver directly to the open wound and onto any dressing used. Colloidal Silver may be used as the only medication on the dressing, or it may be used with another medication.
Eczema, zona and skin rash: Dab Colloidal Silver directly onto affected area, rubbing slightly. Repeat often to keep the area moist. Bandage lightly, if desired, keeping the bandage moist with Colloidal Silver. Change bandage daily.
Warts: Cover the wart with a small adhesive bandage saturated with a few drops of Colloidal Silver. Keep the bandage moist. The wart should disappear within a few days. Large warts may take a few days longer to disappear.
Mycoses: Mycosis is a fungal infection. Colloidal silver kills viruses, bacteria, microbes and fungi therefore can be effective against mycoses. For best results, saturate a cotton ball with colloidal silver and apply to the affected area with an adhesive bandage. Repeat often until it disappears.
Burns: For minor burns, colloidal silver may be applied topically after the burn is cleaned with soap and cold water and gently dried. To avoid the risk of infection, topical application of colloidal silver should be made to blistered or open burn wounds.
For severe burns, soak a bandage pad with colloidal silver and apply to the burn. Try to maintain the bandage pad moist with colloidal silver and change bandage daily until healing is obvious.
The colloidal silver will speed wound healing and reduce the amount of scarring.
Sunburns: Spray colloidal silver on sunburns. It will help reduce the pain and prevent the skin from peeling. Colloidal silver also helps the sunburn turn into a nice tan.
Insect bites: Apply colloidal silver to the insect bite by spraying directly on the skin or using colloidal silver gel. If the bite is severe, soak a cotton ball with colloidal silver and apply to the area with a bandage.
Colloidal silver applied to mosquito bites will provide a fairly long-lasting immediate relief and will protect your skin from developing any infections.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EYE INFECTIONS
Spray once or twice in the affected eye. Will not sting.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EAR INFECTIONS
Apply a few drops of colloidal silver inside the affected ear for fast relief.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TOOTHACHES AND MOUTH SORES
Gargling with colloidal silver is recommended for the prevention of bad breath and tooth decay and as a treatment for mouth ulcers and toothache.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SORE OR STREP THROAT
Spray 2 or 3 times inside the mouth while breathing in.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PNEUMONIA & BRONCHITIS
The best way to knock out pneumonia or bronchitis fast is to breathe in colloidal silver into the lungs. The easiest way to accomplish this is to use a nebulizer which is a device that takes a liquid and atomizes it so that you can breathe it into the lungs. Usually, you only need to nebulise 10 to 15ml of colloidal silver about 3 times a day – 10 to 20 minutes each time. Many times just for a day or two to clear it up.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR INTESTINAL PROBLEMS
Optimum digestion: Put all, or a fraction of the recommended daily amount of Colloidal Silver into the beverage of choice accompanying any meal. As the food is digested, the presence of Colloidal Silver will keep the food from putrefying in the digestive tract, killing any germs ingested with the food, and leaving the food more useable. Also there will be no flatulence.
Diseases of the digestive system, for example, bloating, diarrhoea, haemorrhoids, enteritis, gastritis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and ulcerative colitis can be eliminated with the use of colloidal silver.
Parasitic infections: Take an amount of Colloidal Silver to stop parasitic diseases caused by tiny, worm like animals that burrow through a particular organ, or in some cases throughout the entire body. In every case, these parasites reproduce by laying eggs and these eggs have the same characteristics of the oxygen-metabolising enzyme as the single celled bacterium. These eggs cannot hatch when there is sufficient Colloidal Silver in the surrounding body tissue. They are killed within a short time and subsequently eliminated by the immune system.
Diarrheal diseases: A number of diseases such as cholera, canine parvovirus or other diseases, where the pathogen resides mainly in the large intestine, can be fatal. The fatality is mostly due to the dehydration of the body resulting from severe and prolonged diarrhoea and vomiting. The pathogen causing the problem is active in the large intestine, the one place where Colloidal Silver when used correctly will not penetrate. There are two different methods to overcome this barrier.
1) Take a 200 ml glass dosed with Colloidal Silver together with three or four big glasses of water on an empty stomach. This way the Colloidal Silver will get into the large intestine and should within a short time take care of the problem.
2) By way of colonic irrigation the dose rate using a 50mg. Colloidal Silver preparation is 15 ml per 200ml. of sterile water. This method in fact brings the fastest relief from the disease, Medical literature reports that Cholera has been cured with Colloidal Silver.
Healing crisis: This is a condition wherein the Colloidal Silver is killing the pathogens very rapidly. The body’s five eliminatory systems, the kidney, liver, skin, bowel and lungs become temporarily overloaded. This especially is true in the case of overcoming AIDS with Colloidal Silver. One may feel as though he or she has the flu. It is recommended to continue the silver regimen, yet drink up to 4 litres of water a day, and take five or six grams of vitamin C and a high enema. Repeat for two or three days. Please note if the healing crisis persists see your local practitioner for additional advise.
RECOMMENDATIONS TO STERILIZE FOOD & WATER
Water purification: Colloidal Silver is an excellent water purifier. Water stored with one or two tablespoons of Colloidal Silver per 5 litres will be safe and sweet tasting for a very long time. Water containing germ contaminants (not toxic chemicals) can be made drinkable by adding two to three tablespoons of Colloidal Silver per every 5 litres of water. The Silver whilst purifying the water is also beneficial to the body, unlike the commercial tablets containing toxic chlorine bleach!
Questionable refrigeration: In addition to keeping prepared foods cool and well sealed, add about one table spoon of Colloidal Silver per 1 litter (volume) to picnic foods containing mayonnaise, dairy products, or anything that has a potential for Salmonella growth and poisoning. Stir in very well.
Leftovers and Condiments: Mix about one quarter tablespoon of Colloidal Silver into each container of mustard, ketchup or pickle relish. Mix one half teaspoon into items that spoil more easily, i.e. mayonnaise, milk etc. They will store longer, remain fresher and benefit digestion.
KNOWN VETERINARY USES OF COLLOIDAL SILVER
The following conditions in animals, birds and fish have been successfully treated with Colloidal Silver:
Bacteria and parasites in house pets, farm animals and birds.
Parvovirus in dogs.
Revival of belly-up goldfish.
Scours and undulant fever in cattle.
Apply straight into a pet’s mouth to help remove the bacteria, heal oral tissues and keep the gums and teeth clean.
Animals seem to have an innate knowledge that the colloidal silver is good for them.
We have heard from pet owners that their cat or dog would not drink from the water bowl if there was no colloidal silver in it.
OTHER USES FOR COLLOIDAL SILVER
Can be added when canning, preserving or bottling.
Add to juices and milk to prevent spoiling, fermenting, deterioration, clabbering or curdling.
Safely sterilize anything from toothbrushes, dentures, hair brushes to surgical instruments.
Mist kitchen sponges, towels and cutting boards to eliminate E. Coli and salmonella bacteria to prevent food poisoning and gastrointestinal inflammation.
Spray on garbage to prevent decay odours.
Add to fountains, humidifiers and re-circulation cooling towers water to prevent any bacterial growth.
Mix in postage stamp, envelope and tape moistening wells to prevent bacterial growth.
Spray inside shoes and between toes to stop most skin itch, athlete’s foot and fungi.
Can be diluted with distilled water and used for colon irrigation, nasal spray and dental water pic solutions.
Excellent for diapers and diaper rash.
Diminish dandruff, psoriasis, skin rashes, etc.
Spray pet bedding and let dry.
Mix a little in pet water, birdbath and cut flower vases.
Spray air conditioner filters after cleaning.
Spray plant foliage to stop fungi, moulds, rot and most plant diseases. Silver is an excellent plant-growth stimulator.
There are literally thousands of other essential uses for this nearly tasteless, odourless, benign, powerful and safe disinfectant and healing agent.
COLLOIDAL SILVER & DIGESTION
Some of the easiest problems to heal with colloidal silver are of the stomach, the bladder, the kidneys, the liver and the intestinal tract. These are all areas where colloidal silver is the most effective since it is better able to survive the hydrochloric acid of the stomach and of the chloride environs of the body. Stomach, bladder, and kidney issues generally respond reasonably well to smaller amounts (a few teaspoons or tablespoons) of colloidal silver than does the intestines, colon, and liver because of their function in the digestive system. These last three generally require a multiple ounces depending of course on the severity of the problem. It is simply common sense; when there are systemic problems that are widespread in the body or if there are large numbers of microbes to deal with, it may require more colloidal silver to do the job. One cannot expect much results if trying to heal some issues with simply a teaspoon or two of colloidal silver, so don’t be afraid to use as much as you need for a short period of time.
It is important to remember that with a heavier usage of colloidal silver, especially for more than a few days or a week, one should take Acidophilus and broad spectrum pro-biotics an hour or so afterwards to replenish the colon flora essential for proper digestion. Colloidal silver kills all bacteria/flora in the gut and has no built in programming to distinguish good bacteria from bad. That notion is simply a myth. Often times ‘bad bacteria’ is simply an overgrowth of what might otherwise be ‘good bacteria’. Such problems are often caused by the use of antibiotic medicines, which by the way are responsible for the deaths of thousands of people every year. Dr. Henry E. Simmons, former director of the FDA’s Bureau of Drugs, in 1972 Senate subcommittee hearings stated that antibiotics were, at that time, responsible for from 30,000 to 150,000 deaths. The numbers may be much higher now. Eating live culture yogurt is also a good option, but costs more than the bottled Probiotic supplements. I personally make a habit of consuming digestive enzymes, acidophilus, yogurt and probiotics every day regardless of how much colloidal silver I use. Proper digestion is key to the optimal absorption of nutrients and a strong immune system.
COLLOIDAL SILVER SHELF LIFE
I have received many questions concerning the shelf life of colloidal silver. Nano-particle colloidal silver lasts longer if stored at warmer temperatures. I have boiled colloidal silver on a stove and in a microwave and there seems to be no amount of heat that affects it. But cold is a different matter. If nano-particle colloidal silver is exposed to cold, even refrigerator cold, the particles can agglomerate, causing some color change. At temperatures near or below freezing, the particles will fall out all together. You will know this has happened because the liquid will become clear with a dark residue on the bottom. Ionic silver seems relatively unaffected by either heat or cold. Therefore warm temperatures are better for your nano-particle colloidal silver storage.
To sum things up here in regard to the common sense use of colloidal silver, I am not addressing the use of so-called colloidal silver produced with chemical processes, silver nitrates, saline silver solutions, or silver in protein, or any high ppm or large particle silver. My recommendation is only for nano-particle colloidal silver produced electrically in distilled or de-ionized water. As noted earlier, I believe the use of ionic silver is very effective topically and in areas where it does not need to get into the bloodstream. Colloidal silver is by far the best for use inside the body where it must pass through the stomach or requires getting into the bloodstream to be effective.
DON’T BE FOOLED BY NEGATIVE PROPAGANDA FROM THE DRUG PROTECTION RACKET
There are research references to the body having silver receptors cells. If this is true, then silver must be considered an essential mineral to the good health of the body. Regular maintenance use (1-3 teaspoons per day) will help to maintain some beneficial trace level of silver. If the intent is for a therapeutic use of colloidal silver, then much larger short-term servings may be required for effective results. Just remember, it is only the long-term abusive use of the wrong kinds of silver products that may over time produce rare issues, but aggressive short-term therapeutic use of nano-particle colloidal silver is simply not a problem. I have used colloidal silver almost daily for 10-12 years and I know few people healthier than I. So don’t let the propaganda of the Pharma-industrial complex and ‘government’ agencies such as the MRHA/FDA and the EPA scare you away from what may be nature’s safest and most perfect natural anti-biotic and anti-viral. Colloidal silver may well turn out to be the world of tomorrow’s only hope against ever mutating and life threatening pathogens.
This silver research bibliography was assembled by Dr. A. Bart Flick, the developer of Silverlon, a wound dressing used primarily in burn wards that incorporates a silver wound contact layer in the bandages. Epidermal damage caused by burns are the most difficult to heal and silver aids in the healing process better than anything else. I would also add to Dr. Flick’s list, the work of Alfred B. Searle, “The Use of Colloids in Health and Disease” with a foreword by Sir Malcolm Morris, which was published in 1919. At that time silver in chemical forms had long been used effectively and safely by mainstream medicine.
Colloidal Silver Under Constant Attack
Colloidal Silver has been under almost constant attack by the “triune crime syndicate” composed of the pharmaceutical industry, mainstream medicine, and government agencies. The claim is often made by these three “partners in crime” that there is not enough research or clinical studies to make a determination that colloid silver is both safe and effective. The truth is there is not only much historical and anecdotal evidence as to the safety and effectiveness of silver, but there has been much research and many studies on silver and silver electrodes in healthcare applications.
