Colloidal Silver
Prepping with colloidal silver as a dietary supplement

Harness the power of colloidal silver!
A powerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral, colloidal
silver soothes a number of skin ailments, including soothing
burns, minimize scarring, relieving herpes sores, and medicating
boils, ringworm or warts. Collidal silver has a place in the
prepper's medicine cabinet because of its many benefits...

Colloidal Silver in the Prepper's Medicine Cabinet
Silver is an ancient remedy worthy of renewed consideration by
health professionals and preppers alike. Before antibiotics, there
was silver! It wasn't until the development of penicillin that
favor began to turn against colloidal silver, but now that
antibiotics are losing effectiveness it's once again time to turn
to this ancient method of healing.

Colloidal silver has many properties of interest to preppers,
including its promising allure of effectiveness against illnesses
such as
Ebola or even the common flu -- and as a topical
remedy for burns, warts, and other skin ailments. Colloidal silver
can also be inhaled to ease bronchial passages!

Learn the art of prepping with colloidal silvers, but know that it
isn't a substance without some criticism or without a minor level
of concern. While it's your right to evaluate colloidal silver for
your prepper's stockpile and for your health, you should consult
a physician prior to use as it may interfere with some medicines.

How to Use Colloidal Silver in Emergency Preparedness
Colloidal silver was mainstream medicine in the late 1800s and
early 1900s, and was replaced by antibiotics, specifically in
1930s with the introduction of Penicillin. Yet some preppers
aren't exactly sure how to use Colloidal Silver today. Consult the
Everything you Need to Know about Colloidal Silver,  on
precisely how to use Colloidal Silver and even make it!

In emergency preparedness, Colloidal Silver has multiple uses,

#1: Colliodal silver is an anti-bacterial (prevention against
Colloidal Silver has its place in the prepper's medicine cabinet
for topical use as an antibacterial. Many preppers think Colloidal
Silver is an antibiotic, but in reality it is an
antibacterial which
can help improve the effectiveness antibiotics.

What's the difference between an antibacterial and an
Anti-bacterials apply to the skin to prevent the growth and
reproduction of disease-causing microorganisms, for prevention.
Whereas an antibiotic agent that kills or inhibits the growth of a
microorganism applied topically or orally to kill or inhibit the
growth of microorganisms that are already present.

#2: Colloidal Silver is an anti-fungal.
An anti-fungal is a fungicide that treats and prevents mycoses,
such as athlete's foot or ringworm, which reportedly Colloidal
Silver effectively treats.

  • Colloidal Silver kills ringworm /athletes feet. Colloidal
    Silver is a home remedy for ringworm (Tinea capitis), which
    is a contagious itching skin disease that shows up in the
    form of small circular patches. It's caused by fungi and
    affects scalp and feet, most notably in the form of athlete's

#3: Colloidal silver is an anti-viral.
While not considered an antibiotic, Colloidal Silver certainly
helps fight infections and is an anti-viral. As a treatment
effective against viruses, Colloidal Silver may help treat a
number of ailments. (Antiviral drugs do not destroy their target
pathogen; instead they inhibit their development.)

  • Colloidal Silver destroys Candida. Applied topically, silver
    can help relieve a vaginal yeast infection or an oral thrush.

  • Ear infections. A few drops of colloidal silver can help clear
    and relieve ear infections.* (Incidentally, hydrogen peroxide
    will clear an ear of earwax.)

  • Clears bronchial passages. Diffused colloidal silver
    provides relief for bronchial passages.

  • Pandemic preparedness  (Ebola). Colloidal silver is
    effective in your arsenal of preparedness against pandemic.
    Specifically colloidal silver has a documented effectiveness
    in Ebola preparedness, as proven by Dr. Rima Laibow. Also
    swine flu.

#5: Colloidal silver promotes skin healing.
Colloidal silver also promotes healing of other skin ailments. It
has a marked effect to remove warts, which are non-cancerous
skin growths caused by a viral infection on the skin.In addition
to helping to heal ringworm, Colloidal Silver can get rid of warts!
In a spray bottle you can use Colloidal Silver to soothe a
number of skin ailments, including soothing burns, minimize
scarring, relieving herpes sores, and medicating boils.

#6: Colloidal silver helps heal tooth infections.

#7: Colloidal silver purifies water
Ancient nobility used silver cups, bowl and utensils and rarely
suffered the same rate of infections as the masses. Speculation
is that it helped  purify their water. Author Matthew Stein, who
wrote, When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance and
Planetary Survival, discusses various ways of disinfecting your
water on his Web site. Here is his method on
Purifying Water
With Silver.

Questions about Colloidal Silver:

What is Colloidal Silver and NanoSilver?
Colloidal silver is simply, particles of silver suspended in liquid.
Many preppers feel colloidal silver is highly effective in killing
viruses and bacteria.  Both Colloidal Silver and NanoSilver are
derived from silver and yet they are distinctly different:

  • Colloidal Silver: Read the full article about Colloidal Silver
    and talk your physician as colloidal silver was largely
    discontinued by the medical practice in the mid 1940s in
    favor of mainstream antibiotics. Colloidal Silver bullet,
    pictured right, is free of toxic artificial additives. Silver is
    concentrated to 30 parts per million in a pure base of
    deionized water.

  • NanoSilver 10ppm: Nanosilver is not the same as Colloidal
    Silver. A study suggests that NanoSilver (very specifically
    10 parts per million) inactivates and neutralizes the Ebola
    Virus. Dr. Rima Laibow has been very vocal with regards to
    the benefits of NanoSilver 10ppm, and points to a study on
    this nutrient that neutralizes Ebola. The declassified
    research in 2009 from the U.S. Department of Defense
    shows that Nanosilver 10ppm inactivates and neutralizes
    the Ebola virus.

Colloidal silver is a beneficial mineral for use in emergency
preparedness; however the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) does not find any substantial scientific evidence on the
effectiveness of colloidal silver. Read for yourself the ruling and
what the FDA has to say on the
effectiveness of colloidal silver
ingredients or silver salts.

So there you have it: colloidal silver is effective against serious
illnesses, from dealing with ordinary flu symptoms to more
serious pandemic preparedness.  Colloidal silver purifies water,
destroys Candida and helps fight too. Isn't it time you stocked
up on this important item in your
prepper's medicine cabinet?

What does "Colloidal" mean?
Colloidal is a chemical mixture in which one substance is evenly
dispersed throughout another. In a colloidal the particles are
suspended in the mixture and they are not dissolved. You see,
the particles in the "colloid" are small enough and evenly
dispersed and are homogenous in appearance, and yet they are
large enough so as not to dissolve. They are insoluable particles.

Who supports Colloidal silver?
Many in the medical community have made mention of Colloidal
silver in there videos, Web sites or books. Is Colloidal Silver
safe? Here is a list of physicians and nurses who seemingly
support the benefits of Colloidal Silver:

  • Joseph Alton M.D. (a.k.a. Doctor Bones) mentions colloidal
    silver on pages 68-70 of The Survival Medicine Handbook, a
    guide for when help is not on the way; however, he
    carefully sidesteps his direct approval of the. He and his
    wife, Nurse Amy have yet to post an article or video on
    Colloidal Silver. The Survival Medicine Handbook, left is a
    handy resource for survival medicine.

  • Patriot Nurse (she has yet to post a video, but has been
    known to post links to the products, such as the Silver
    Mountain Colloidal Silver, pictured right).

  • Garry Gordon M.D. prefers only one kind of silver: ACS.

  • Advanced Cellular Silver (ACS), pictured right, is a unique
    dietary supplement. ACS provides fast, significant relief and
    immune support. Prescribed by doctors in over 15 countries.
    Garry Gordon, M.D. Prefers ACS because it is proven to be
    4,000 to 1,000,000 times more effective than competing
    silver brands in killing pathogens!

An important footnote about colloidal silver...
It's true that in 1999 the Federal Drug Administration put a ban
on colloidal silver specifically as an over-the-counter drug;
however, not as a dietary supplement. This means that while
the products may not be sold to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent
any disease, you are free to use colloidal silver and reap the
potential health benefits as a dietary supplement.

Is Colloidal Silver Safe?
Let's take a look at who supports colloidal silver and who
doesn't and whether or not there are any side effects...

Colloidal Silver has approved topical uses:

  • Hospitals today use silver in topical creams to prevent
    infection, particularly in burn dressings and bandages.
    Certainly Colloidal silver has it's place in the treatment of
    burns, skin wounds, or skin infections!

  • Physicians also use Colloidal Silver in medicines to prevent
    conjunctivitis (an eye condition) in newborns.

Are there any side effects to using Colloidal Silver?
Let's lay out the facts because colloidal silver does have a side
effect called argyria, which causes a permanent condition where
skin turns a grayish-blue upon massive consumption of the
product. Argyria has occurred in people who took massive doses
of home made or commercial colloidal silver products. You see,
silver can build up in the body, particularly when people who use
colloidal silver spend too much time in the sun. While it's a rare
condition, it is important to note that it is a cosmetic problem

That's the real lesson and a reminder about moderation! So
remember, easy does it when it comes to colloidal silver.

Other Warnings about colloidal silver
If you are taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, notably the Statin
Liptor, then do not take Colloidal Silver supplements.  
Avoid also antibiotics clarithromycin and erythromycin, according
to Dr. Mercola's summary of findings reveals that
Colloidal Silver
mixed with certain antibiotics with statins can be devastating.

Now you are prepared to live happily ever after knowing a little
bit more about colloidal silver it's time to give it a try. Just don't
over do it!

Move over Neosporin!
What could be better than Neosporin? Aside from allergies
people have in Neosporin, and the over use, there's something
more powerful on the market: Silvasorb Gel. Harness the power
of ionic silver with Silvasorb gel.

SilvaSorb releases silver at a controlled level for broad spectrum
antimicrobial action, without harming tissue cells. The ionic
silver is suspended in the SilvaSorb dressing to control its
release over a period of up to seven days. It provides an
antimicrobial barrier to a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi,
including MRSA and VRE. SilvaSorb is completely biocompatible
with the tissue cells of healing.

In addition to controlling bioburden, another key factor in wound
healing is managing moisture level. SilvaSorb dressings are
made of special polymer that absorbs more than five times its
weight in fluid. That's not only more that all other silver
dressings, it's several times more than calcium alginates or
similar absorptive products. This allows SilvaSorb to be left in
place for longer periods of time compared to other wound
dressings, even on heavily draining wounds. If the wound is dry,
SilvaSorb can help. The dressings are 20% water, giving then
the unique ability to donate moisture when needed. Advanced
fluid management helps provide a moist wound healing
environment for the full spectrum of wounds.

SilvaSorb will not dry out a wound and it will not macerate the
surrounding skin. SilvaSorb is available in four formats: sheets
for flat wounds with no to moderate exudate; perforated sheets
for flat wounds with moderate exudate; cavity strands for deep
or tunneling wounds of all exudate levels; and amorphous gel
for dry wounds.

What does the medical community have to say about Colloidal
Taking colloidal silver is not without risks.  The U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health
warns the risks: colloidal silver can cause irreversible side
effects. Read more about what the National Center for
Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) says about
colloidal silver in their article:
What the Science Says About the
Safety and Side Effects of Colloidal Silver.

Despite the warnings, there are many responsible and effective
ways to use colloidal silver. Here is an abstract on Colloidal
Silver and Ebola:

Happy endings...
As people begin to awaken that pharmacies cause harm and
that natural products are better, you'll surely seem more use of
colloidal silver. Preppers are ahead of the curve, and that's why
we stock colloidal silver now, while it's still available.
