Colloidal Silver is a tasteless, odourless, non-toxic, pure, natural substance consisting of sub-microscopic clusters of silver particles, suspended by a tiny electric charge placed on each particle, within a suitable liquid. The molecule's size usually ranges from 0.01 to about 0.001 micron in diameter (very small). The particles do not settle but remain suspended since the electric charge exerts more force than gravity on each particle. Colloidal is the form of choice since the body must convert a crystalline solution to colloidal before it can be used. Taken daily, it is a powerful adjunct to our immune systems, by killing harmful disease-causing organisms, and aids healing.
Silver and all minerals are obtained from food we eat. This comes directly from organic soil containing living organisms. These organisms assist in making the minerals available to the vegetation. However, if we eat fruit and vegetables grown on chemical fertilizers, as most plants are grown today, we do not get the necessary quantity of vitamins, minerals and trace elements which occur in organically grown foods. This results in deficiencies which progress over time resulting in an impaired immune function. The results are diseases of aging. Dr. Robert Backer noticed a correlation between low silver levels and sickness; colds, flu, etc. Some Biochemists suspect that a silver deficiency is possibly one of the main reasons cancer exists and is increasing at such a rapid rate today. Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used silver in his cancer treatment for many years. He says it has brought on rapid remission in many patients whom other doctors had given up on.
How Colloidal Silver Works
The presence of liquid Colloidal Silver benefits humans by disabling the oxygen metabolism enzyme of a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. One of the primary Colloidal Silver benefits is that unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics that 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, animals, plants and all multi-celled living matter.
Liquid Colloidal Silver Benefits
Liquid Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver into a liquid, such as water. These microscopic particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Liquid Colloidal Silver benefits us by working as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one- celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. In short, the bad guys suffocate. Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to develop. In fact, antibiotics are only effective against perhaps a dozen forms of bacteria and fungi, but never viruses. Because no known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver, liquid Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease- causing pathogens.
Colloidal Silver Uses and Application
Since there is not enough room to list all the Colloidal Silver benefits, here is a partial list of conditions it has been used successfully to treat: acne, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, blood parasites, bubonic plague, burns (colloidal silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive), cancer, cholera, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhoea, hay fever, herpes, leprosy, leukaemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, toxaemia, trench foot, all forms of viruses, warts and stomach ulcer. Colloidal silver benefits animals too, with veterinary uses including treatment for the canine parvo virus.
A liquid colloidal silver dosage, may be applied directly to the skin. A few drops on a q-tip or band-aid may be used to disinfect any wound or sore. Liquid Colloidal Silver is administered orally and can also be spray applied. In severe case, it may also be injected. Colloidal silver is used vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs and dropped into the ears and eyes.
For a beginning Colloidal Silver Dosage, take one teaspoon per day, for seven days, then reduce to half a teaspoon per day. Children should use a proportionally smaller Colloidal Silver dosage. For colds and flu symptoms, up to a tablespoon three times daily. Overdosing should not be of concern even if more than recommended colloidal silver dosage is administered. After several Colloidal Silver uses, one might experience a detox effect in the form of feeling sluggish or mild aches. Consumption of water will cause these symptoms to disappear.
It is safe for pregnant and nursing women and is known to aid the developing foetus in growth. It will not generate free radicals or interfere with enzyme activity. It has no reaction with other medications.
Colloidal Silver Dosage
It's important to note that a larger colloidal silver dosage does not kill disease germs more effectively than the safe range of 10 parts per million (ppm), and may cause silver build-up in the body. These types of Colloidal Silver uses can eventually result in a silver toxicity called Argyria, a permanent discoloration of the skin to a grey shade. But most people can safely ingest a Colloidal Silver dosage of several ounces a day of 10 ppm concentration indefinitely, as this small concentration of silver is easily flushed from the body.
ASAP Colloidal Silver solution is Proven to be More Effective
The ASAP Colloidal Silver solution is the only patented colloidal silver on the market. The reason for this is that it has been proven to be so effective that it reaches far beyond any previous silver products. ASAP Solution was approved for patent by the United States Patent Agency. In recent tests conducted by Brigham Young University Microbiology Laboratory, the ASAP Solution® has been shown to have a greater affect on the immune system than other colloidal silver products.
Frequently Asked Questions about Colloidal Silver and ASAP Colloidal Silver solution
What is ASAP Solution®?
ASAP Solution® consists of tiny (about 10 nanometres long) particles of pure elemental silver suspended in pure water. It is available in concentrations of 10 parts of silver for every million parts of water or 22 parts of silver for every million parts of water.
Is ASAP Solution® safe?
When taken in the doses specified, ASAP Solution® is safe for humans when taken internally or applied to the skin or eyes. Unlike some other silver products, this product is not thought to be a risk for permanent greying of the skin. This is a condition known as argyria and can be caused when large amounts of silver are absorbed into the skin tissue. To learn more about argyria please click here.
What is the proper dosage of ASAP Solution®?
It is recommended that one take at least 1 tablespoon, twice daily for age 12-adults and 2 teaspoons twice daily for children ages 5-11. For children 4 and under, 1 teaspoon twice daily is recommended. This product should not be taken in place of an antibiotic recommended by your healthcare provider.
Is all colloidal silver the same?
No, two colloidal silver solutions with the same concentration might produce very different effects. ASAP Solution® has been shown, in recent tests conducted by Brigham Young University Microbiology Laboratory, to have a greater affect on the immune system than other colloidal silver products.
Does ASAP Solution® harm the helpful bacteria in our intestines?
Individuals who have taken the ASAP Solution® for an extended period of time report no negative gastro-intestinal side effects. This may be because most of the silver solution is processed by the kidneys and does not even enter the large intestine. If the small amount of silver solution that enters into the large intestine were to kill some of the helpful bacteria, the density of bacteria is so great in the large intestine that they quickly multiply to regain their normal level.
What is the basic information on Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal Silver is a pure, all natural substance consisting of distilled water and sub microscopic clusters of the mineral silver. Colloidal Silver is manufactured by a non-chemical process where the microscopic particles of silver are held in suspension by an electromagnetic charge placed on each particle.
Is colloidal silver safe to take?
The Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Centre reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver, these reports seem to reflect that it is considering it harmless in any concentration. Other studies and information on Colloidal Silver seem to show that is the safest and best all around natural antibiotic germ-fighter we have.
What is colloidal silver effective against?
Recent information on Colloidal Silver seems to show that it has been proven to be useful against many different infections and against all species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and certain viruses.
What is a micron?
A micron is one millionth of a meter, in comparison a millimetre is one thousandths of a meter and a meter is approximately 39.37 inches long.
What is a colloid?
A colloid is a substance that consists of ultra-fine particles that do not dissolve but remain in suspension. These ultra-fine particles are larger than most molecules but so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. Not all brands of Colloidal Silver are true colloids. In a true colloid of silver, the ideal size of the silver particles fall within the range of 0.005 - 0.015 microns in diameter. These particles are electrically charged to activate the germicidal quality of the silver and allow the silver particles to remain suspended in water.
Does particle size matter?
Particle size is a crucial factor. Much of the efficiency of the colloidal solution depends on the actual size and uniformity of silver particles. Particles that are too large are less effective. The preferred particle size for optimum results and safety of use should be from 0.005 - 0.015 microns in diameter.
What about the colour of the final product?
A excellent indicator of the quality of Colloidal Silver is the colour. As the size of each silver particle gets larger, the colour of the solution ranges from yellow to brown to red to grey and black. Colloids of silver that are produced using the proper electrolysis method are different colour than the grind or chemically produced colloids, except in the case of some products that contain artificial food colouring to get the right colour. The ideal form of Colloidal Silver is a clear to light yellow colour, which in part has to do with using ozonated water in the production of the colloidal silver. Various experiments show that using ozonated water may produce the smallest silver particles.
Are the higher parts per million like 500 ppm more beneficial?
Much information on Colloidal Silver seems to reflect that in the range of 5 - 10 ppm (parts per million), it has little effect on 'friendly' bacteria, while being highly useful against infections and eliminating various microbes, viruses and fungi. Colloidal Silver that is too concentrated (above 15 ppm ) may upset the delicate balance of the digestive tract by destroying significant amounts of friendly bacteria. There are claims that colloidal silver solutions in the 100ppm range are beneficial for many skin conditions.
What are some modern uses for Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal Silver may be taken orally or put on a Band-Aid and applied directly to cuts, scrapes, open sores, warts or used as a rinse for acne, eczemas and other skin irritations. It may be gargled, dropped into eyes or ears, used vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs. The best thing to do is to experiment and try different methods and uses.
Does colloidal silver have any effect on cancer cells?
Dr. Gary Smith (a pioneer in cancer research) in an unpublished article writes that: Success depends on the amount of silver in the person's body and problems result from the lack of silver in the body. When silver was present, the cancer cells stopped their development and the body is basically restored. When silver levels are low or not-existent, the cancer growth continues to grow because the cells cannot reverse themselves.
How does silver naturally get into the body?
One might ask "how do we get silver in our body in the first place?" We get silver and all minerals in the body through the food we eat. How does silver get in the food? It gets in the food through living soil where living organisms in healthy soil, (of which there are billions in a handful of dirt) break down the soil so plants are provided minerals in a form assimilable to the plant. By assimilating the plant nutrients the minerals are transferred in our digestive tract, where our bodies utilize the captured organic (chelated) minerals, through the blood stream to the various organs of our body. Hence, we get silver from plants. If we cannot assimilate silver for some reason or as the tissues age, we develop a silver deficiency and an impaired immune system may lead to cancer in some cases.
Does Colloidal Silver help in the fight against AIDS?
Since in active AIDS, the suppressed immune system of the body is open to all kinds of diseases, colloidal silver seems to be the perfect non-toxic drug to use for its wide spectrum antibiotic effect. A researcher at Brigham Young University sent colloidal silver to two different labs including UCLA Medical Centre, which it has been reported said, "It killed not only the HIV Virus (invitro), but every virus that was tested in the lab". According to the FDA rules, colloidal silver cannot be used for treating the HIV Virus, but it could be used as an antibiotic for all the acquired diseases of active AIDS.
How much colloidal silver should a person take per day?
Many people experiment with taking from one or two teaspoons to one to two tablespoons each day. You may even experiment with larger doses if you have a cold or such. We cannot over stress the importance of consulting a licensed medical practitioner. Much information seems to report that adults take one teaspoon 3 times day for four to seven days, then cut down to about one-half teaspoon 2 times a day. Children or babies would use a proportionally smaller dose. Another way to determine dosage is kinesiology or muscle testing. Optimum dose may require more or less colloidal silver.
Is there any information on colloidal silver side effects?
There is no recorded side effect in medical literature from the use of colloidal silver. Additionally there has never been a recorded case of a drug interaction. It is non-addicting, the body does not build up a tolerance to it, and studies seem to show that colloidal silver is not deposited under the skin like other compounds that may cause grey skin.
If it's so great, people ask why they have never heard of colloidal silver before?
Seventy years ago, colloidal silver was widely used. Colloidal silver retailed about $100.00 per ounce in the 1930's. Recent technology has brought the price down so that colloidal silver can now compete in the marketplace. Numerous articles in medical journals of colloidal silver can be found dating usually before 1940. New articles and data will soon be appearing as more doctors rediscover this safe and effective mineral solution. New information is already appearing on the internet.
Do I still need to visit my family doctor if I use colloidal silver?
If your conditions look serious or begin to look serious, if they persist or worsen, please visit with and consult your family doctor. In no way does this product even remotely mean to imply that this or any alternative methods will or can replace your family doctor.
Is silver a mineral?
No; regardless of it particle size, silver is a metal, unless chemically combined with other elements such as sulphur, oxygen, nitrogen, etc.
How long has silver been used as a germ fighter?
Silver is mentioned in the Bible. Royalty carried water in silver vessels in the belief that this water would help them maintain their health. Before refrigeration a silver dollar was placed in containers of milk to maintain freshness. Silver was the primary antibiotic used by the wealthy before the advent of penicillin in 1938
