Colloidal Silver the history and health rewards

Colloidal Silver the history and health rewards

I will start by stating that I am not a Doctor and you should always seek a health practitioner’s advice on any conditions and treatments.


The History of Colloidal Silver

For thousands of years silver was respected as a multipurpose healing technique. From early Rome, Greece, and places like ancient Paeonia, precious metals was used extensively to manage contamination and infection. Famous practitioners like Hippocrates, demonstrated that silver treated open wounds and managed disease way before antibiotics.

The acceptance of silver is known from before BC and spread to the Middle East around 700 AD during which it was commonly used for conditions like bloodstream filtration, cardiovascular diseases, syphilis, and even for simple things like managing bad breath.

During Napoleon times, the legions of Alexander implemented water flasks coated internally with silver to purify water from waterways. Silver was still used commonly by Russian in World War I, and even into World War 2.

Prior to refrigeration, it was a normal practice to put a silver coin into milk to preserve the milk, due to the fact silver was understood to protect against the growth of bacteria, algae and other unwanted microorganisms.

In recent times we have found silver to still be a powerful substance, it was almost lost from the history books like many other old health technics, but even now people stumble on to the power of silver by accident like, the State University of New York was running a project in the 1970s and they were making an shield with nylon and silver and it lead to them rediscovering that silver has unique antimicrobic characteristics, a long story short they ended up making a silver formulated wound dressings (Silverlon) obtained approval from the US Food and Drug Administration.

The funny thing is that when silver is used in a product that can be patented they approve it but when its just silver that you can make at home for a few cents then they don’t approve of it? This is highlighted by the fact that Silverlon bandages are ok yet the official line from the FDA about the use of silver is they do not consider it to be a safe or effective treatment for ANY disease or condition. Strong words there, considering the history of silver.

You can eat toxic food full of numbers and pesticides we know cause health issues, that’s ok, GMO, no problem, but silver used for thousands of years, don’t touch that!

The most common use is as an Antibacterial Agent.
Colloidal silvers capacity to eliminate antibiotic immune superbugs is spectacular. While working at UCLA, Larry C. Ford, MD, reported over 600 separate disease producing pathogens that ended up being defeated in moments when exposed to silver. (

Silver is also a excellent anti-inflammatory therapy.

Who to believe?

With the way the world works now, these days its all about money, so the best way to find out more about any product or service is to find and read over personal testimonials from people that use the products or services. I know that real people are more trustworthy that big companies, media or government. There are a heap for forums where you can read amazing stories of people that use The History of Colloidal Silver on themselves or pets to fix a huge range of issues.

In Australia it’s illegal to market colloidal silver as a medication or nutritional supplement it’s legal to sell it for water purification purposes, like many things in the natural health industry you can’t state much at all without fear of being attacked, and the best advise is always to research and ask or read up on people’s personal experience using it.

I do use Colloidal Silver myself and I have seen what it can do, but so people can see I am not biased I will not go into my own personal experience and instead give a few links to site s full of people that use CS.

I make my own colloidal silver for less than $1 a liter at home and it can also be brought from health shops or online. So if you have an interest in trying out CS google is your friend.
