Ionic Colloidal Silver
WHAT IS IONIC COLLOIDAL SILVER?
Ionic Colloidal Silver is classified by the EU as an anti-microbial mineral solution. Ionic Colloidal Silver is a natural antiviral, antifungal and an antibacterial solution that can be used orally or externally. It’s tasteless, odourless, non-toxic, has no side-effects as is non-addictive. It is 100% safe and can be used by everyone at home - humans, dogs, cats, horses and animals in general - as well as on plants.
From the very early days man has known that silver helps prevent the spread of diseases. The wealthy even used silver drinking cups, silver tableware and utensils that helped give them protection from many diseases.
It can be sprayed onto work surfaces to kill bacteria, it can be given to dogs, cats, reptiles and animals, orally or externally, to help combat infections, kill off parasites and worms and maintain their general health. Just put 1 to 2 tablespoons into 1 litre of their drinking water or spray directly on their skin/fur. It gives extra antibiotic protection.
In laymans terms it is very, very, small particles of 99.99% pure silver ions and atoms suspended in 'medical grade pure steam distilled water' . We manufacture it at a concentration of approx 10-12ppm (parts per million). To scale things up, if you can imagine a road running straight for 1 mile and on that road you placed 12 baby peas, then that would equate to a concentration of about 12 parts per million!
Ionic Colloidal Silver has the ability to stop coughs and colds. It can also help get rid of stomach bugs and food poisoning. It helps heal cuts and wounds. It is totally safe to take for humans, animals and plants and was in common use up until 1938.
It is estimated there are over 10 million regular users of Colloidal Silver in North America alone and there are millions more throughout Europe, Asia and the rest of the world.
SILVER SAFETY COMMITTEE USAGE GUIDELINES ...
The Silver Safety Committee, which consists of doctors, chemistry professors and world leaders in health-freedom advocacy has created guidelines for the safe use of Ionic Silver or Colloidal Silver. Please CLICK HERE to go to their website and review their guidelines.
They have a very good FAQ/Education Section that is well worth reviewing.
It may sound that Ionic Colloidal Silver is a universal 'cure-all', but is important to understand that it is NOT - and it will not "work" on everything. There are some pathogens on which silver appears to have no effect whatsoever.
It’s so effective because it’s an anti-microbial solution meaning it kills or inhibits the growth of micro-organisms. And, unlike a lot of antibiotics, it’s equally effective as an anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial solution.
Silver stimulates the body's immune system and can help the body fight pollution and allergens. It can speed up the healing of cuts, scrapes and wounds and works well on burns. It can keep water and food bacteria free as well as stimulating healthy plant growth. Give it to your pets to help remove parasites and cure infections. Silver nanoparticles are used as an anti-microbial in various industrial, healthcare and domestic applications and is being used into hospitals to help prevent the risk of MRSA.
FOR COLDS & FLU
You can help to fight coughs and colds before they get a grip by putting a few drops of ionic colloidal silver in your ears or atomising a few puffs into your nose. After a day or two, you should feel your symptoms start to ease and you should start feeling like your old self again.
Your whole family can benefit from the healing qualities of Ionic Colloidal Silver. At the first signs of a Cold you can start by putting a few drops into your ears, morning and night, as well as taking up to 20ml (1 tablespoon) orally once per day (see suggested dosages/applications below). You can also use the Nasal Spray to spray 1 - 2 sprays up each Nostril each day. Then within a day or two, the potential cold should have disappeared. You can also use the atomiser, that comes with our Kit, to huff a few puffs into your lungs, to help prevent / heal upper respiratory infections. (See DOSAGE guidelines below).
USING A PORTABLE ULTRASONIC NEBULISER FOR RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS & FOR QUICK ABSORPTION INTO THE BLOODSTREAM.
Ionic Colloidal Silver can be used in a Nebuliser if you have respiratory or sinus problems. Breathing/Nebulising completely by-passes the time involved for absorption through the digestive system and also eliminates the interaction of the silver ions with other contents in the stomach.
This method is the quickest way of getting the product straight into your bloodstream, and therefore the most effective. It does mean you’ll have to buy a Nebuliser, which can be expensive, but is recommended if you regularly experience breathing difficulties. We recommend the Beurer handheld IH50 Ultrasonic Nebuliser that costs around £74.00 at Amazon.
Ionic Colloidal Silver can even be given to your family dog or cat if they are feeling a little under the weather. Use it to treat inflammation, cuts and bruises, or if they have worms and other parasitical conditions. Adding a drop or two to your pet’s drinking water will give them the upper hand towards sustained health.
EARLY RESEARCH ON COLLOIDAL SILVER
Ionic colloidal silver has fallen out of fashion as a medicine recently. It was popular up until 1938, when it was used as an antibiotic. Silver pennies were also used in those days to preserve the shelf life of milk. It was initially used after scientists in the early 1900s discovered the body’s most important fluids are colloidal, or suspended in fluid, and copied the technique. They suspended ultra-fine particles in water and colloidal silver was born. Then more powerful pharmaceutical antibiotics took over, as they were thought to be more effective.
It’s still a perfectly legitimate drug today though, as long as any Ionic Colloidal Silver based products are labelled and manufactured in the same way as they were before 1938. Ionic Colloidal Silver is classified by the EU as an anti-microbial solution. It is not a food or mineral supplement.
HOW IT WORKS
Bacteria in the body can be “suffocated” through a process known as 'catalytic oxidation'. Silver naturally kills the oxygen metabolising enzyme of most viruses, fungal infections and bacteria known to man. Exposing them to Ionic Colloidal Silver means they die pretty quickly and then cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems.
And unlike a lot of over-the-counter antibiotics, it doesn't destroy your body’s essential enzymes, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life, making it a safe, effective alternative. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter. Ionic Colloidal Silver does not react with other drugs in the body except on a germs oxygen metabolism enzyme. A small part of the key to the effectiveness of our Ionic Colloidal Silver, is that the size in our Ionic/Colloidal blend is very small at approx. 1.93 nm for the Ionic Silver up to about 8.4 nm for the Colloidal Silver. For reference - the diameter of a single silver atom is 0.288 nm. A particle one nanometer in diameter would consist of 31 silver atoms, and a 5 nm diameter particle would be about 3900 atoms.
RECENT SAFETY STUDY & RESEARCH
An in-depth study into the safety of using Ionic Colloidal Silver has recently been completed. Researchers found that ingesting Ionic Colloidal Silver has been found to be totally harmless, so long as excessive quantities are not taken. In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers found no toxicity whatsoever from the ingestion of nanosilver. You can read the article here: http://thesilveredge.com/first-ever-colloidal-silver-human-ingestion-safety-study.shtml
Recent clinical lab research has shown that colloidal silver as well as other forms of anti-microbial silver have been shown to be highly effective against many infectious viruses. Learn more about that at the Colloidal Silver Kills Viruses website. This opening article on the website makes very interesting reading and is a real eye-opener to the efficacy of Ionic Colloidal Silver.
HOW WE MAKE OUR IONIC COLLOIDAL SILVER
As the basis of all our Ionic Colloidal Silver we use medical grade steam distilled water which is tested to ensure a purity of 0 ppm (parts per million). True 'Colloidal' silver is a concentration of nano-sized silver particles of silver suspended in pure water, while true 'ionic' silver is a concentration of silver ions suspended in pure water. We use an electrolytic process to manufacture our Ionic Silver since all electrolysis methods will mainly produce about 90% ionic silver and 10% Colloidal. We then use a simple catalytic process to convert the generated Ionic silver into a blend of 'Ionic and Colloidal' silver.
This BLEND of both 'Ionic and Colloidal' silver - the best of both worlds - is at a concentration of approx 10 - 12ppm (parts per million) with the 'Colloidal' silver making up about 75% to 80% of the solution and 'Ionic' silver making up the remaining 20% to 25%. For more information on the differences between 'Ionic' and 'Colloidal' silver please go to: http://www.silver-colloids.com/Pubs/AboutIonic.html as well as http://www.silver-colloids.com/Pubs/truecolloidalsilver.html
Technically speaking, a silver ion is an atom of silver that is missing one electron. The outermost electrons of an atom determine the physical properties of the matter. Take away one electron from a silver atom and you get a silver ion. Ionic silver is not the same as metallic silver, silver particles or colloidal silver. True silver colloids consist of silver particles (nanoparticles), not silver ions. Only silver colloids can survive inside the body. Metallic silver particles (colloids) are unaffected by hydrochloric stomach acid and chloride ions and will circulate in the bloodstream where they are believed to kill pathogens.
We use 99.99% pure silver rods during the generation in air-tight sealed flasks, to keep out airborne contaminants. The silver particles that are generated are an average size range of 8.4 nanometers based on particles of pure silver metal (i.e. actual 'Colloidal' silver by proper definition) rather than silver oxide particles. The Ionic Silver size in our blend is very small at approx. 1.93 nanometers. (Note: 1 micron = 1000 nanometers). Our Ionic Colloidal Silver is made freshly for you and added to a selection amber coloured jars (see above). 'Ionic' silver is reactive to the UV rays of direct sunlight, hence the use of amber jars to protect it. The light will cause the silver to drop out of suspension, thus making it far less effective if taken. You will receive a 500ml bottle, a 50ml atomiser, a 25ml Ear/Eye dropper and a 25ml Nasal Spray pump.
The bottles should be stored at room temperature and away from direct sunlight, ideally in a darkened area. Please do NOT store in a fridge or freezer as this will also cause the silver particles to fall out of suspension. If stored in the proper conditions, the 'Ionic Colloidal Silver' should easily last over 1 year maintaining about 99% potency.
SUGGESTED DOSAGES & APPLICATIONS
ORALLY: We suggest a maximum daily oral "maintenance dose" of 1 to 3 teaspoons (a tablespoon is 3 teaspoons) of Ionic Colloidal Silver for adults and 1 teaspoon of Ionic Colloidal Silver for children or infants. Hold in the mouth under the tongue for at least 30 seconds, before swallowing. It is best to take ICS orally first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Many common foods in the stomach will rapidly degrade the colloidal silver quality. You can take amounts higher than this 1 - 4 ozs (30ml to 120ml) per day for acute conditions, but only for a short period of time, like up to 1 week. Then revert to the "maintenance dose". If unsure please refer to the Silver Safety Committee calculator.
NASAL SPRAY: For targeting the nasal environment, we suggest 1-2 sprays per nostril three or four times a day, for 2 or 3 days. Ideal for sinus infections and nasal congestion, as it is anti-inflammatory and soothes blocked up nasal passages. Using the Nasal Spray when you have been, or are in contact, with people with a heavy cough of cold, will help ensure that you do not catch their cold/cough bug. This is especially useful when travelling, especially on aeroplanes. NB: You can also choose to use the Nebuliser (see below) for nasal delivery. In general, 1 spray is equivalent to approx 3 drops of liquid.
DROPPER: For the ears and eyes - Use a few drops per ear or eye. A good line of defence against colds is at the very first signs of a cold put 2-3 drops of Ionic Colloidal Silver into each ear and then lie on your side for about 5 minutes to allow the solution to really get to work. Do this just once in the morning and once in the evening. This system has proven to be very effective in stopping colds before they get a real hold. The thinking is that many viral infections actually start in the ears, and then spread, but the drops must be administered right at the first signs of a cold to be effective. For your information a UK teaspoon holds about 5ml which is 50 - 60 drops - so each milliliter is about 10 to 12 drops.
ATOMISER: This is highly versatile. Spray a fine mist over work top surfaces, door handles, taps etc to provide protection from bacteria, viruses and varrious pathogens for many hours. In general, 1 spray is equivalent to approx 3 drops of liquid.
Orally: you can spray 3 to 4 puffs into your mouth 3 or 4 times throughout the day. This application is especially effective just before you go to bed. It is best not to eat or drink anything for 2 or 3 minutes afterwards.
For Topical Uses - Dosage is not a concern for the eyes, ears and when dressing wounds, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, burns, bites etc. Spray the affected area several times a day with the Atomiser. You can gently spay the fine mist into your eyes to help with Pink Eye and Sties - and don't worry, it is painless.
For Sore Throats: If you feel a sore throat coming on, then using the atomiser, you can simply spray the inside of the throat for 3 or 4 squirts and then repeat 3 or 4 times throughout the day for the first few days.
For Upper Respiratory problems: You can "HUFF" the mist into your lungs. With you mouth wide open sray 3 or 4 puffs into your mouth whilst breathing in deeply. This will get some of the tiny silver particles into you lungs where they will help with respiratory problems, chesty cough etc. as well as getting quickly into the blood stream. The best solution for upper respiratory problems is using an 'Ultrasonic Nebuliser'. The mist particles are much smaller and more effective for the lungs. Ultrasonic Nebulisers are quite expensive, about £80, so "huffing" is the second best effective option otherwise.
NEBULISER (i.e. breathing): Breathing a silver solution is the fastest and most direct delivery method into the bloodstream. Breathing - also known as nebulising - completely by-passes the time involved for absorption through the digestive system and also eliminates the interaction of the silver ions with other contents in the stomach.
Nebulising is the best of all, for upper respiratory problems as well as sinus problems. If you feel chesty and your budget can stretch to it, we recommend the Beurer IH50 Ultrasonic Nebuliser. This is by far the fastest and most effective way of getting Ionic Colloidal Silver into the lung tissues and bloodstream and is very effective against all kinds of respiratory problems.
Proper Breathing - A proper inhalation is defined as an inhalation which has a 3-6 second duration and then holding the inhalation for 1-2 seconds before exhaling.
Initial Dosages - For adults, during your first silver nebulising session we suggest no more than 48 long and deep inhalations through the mouth or nose (infants and children at 25-50% of adult intake) and then cease further nebulisation for 2-3 days. The 2-3 day cessation period is vital to check for the onset of flu-like symptoms due to the chance of a detoxifying response from the body known as the "Herxheimer Reaction".
If no flu-like symptoms are noticeable after 2-3 days, you can continue with (up to) 48 inhalations every 1-5 days to keep silver present in the lungs and circulatory system. There is no better delivery to the blood stream than the inhalation method into the lungs. This is highly preferred over oral administration for blood delivery!
FOR DOGS AND CATS
Add 1 to 2 tablespoons into 1 litre of their drinking water (or in equivalent proportions) as a low maintenance dose. Most animals seem to love it. For severe problems you can let them drink a small bowl (300ml) of our 10 to 12 ppm ICS solution, but ONLY do this for a few days only and then put them back onto the low maintenance dose. Give them a total break from the low maintenance dose from time to time - for instance give them the maintenance dose for 2 weeks and then rest for 2 to 3 weeks. But don't worry, when used sensibly, you can't really overdose with ionic colloidal silver, so it takes the worry out of prescribing and it can be safely used alongside other medications like antibiotics as it will not interact with other medications.
TOPICAL USES - You can also spray the Ionic Colloidal Silver solution directly onto their skin which works well for rashes, small cuts and sores. You can use it to spray onto their bedding to kill off any bugs or bacteria. If you do this spray onto their bedding in the morning and then let the solution air dry.
Ionic Colloidal Silver is recommended for combating bacterial, viral and fungal infections in horses like Lyme Disease and EHV-1. It can be safely used alongside other medications like antibiotics as it will not interact with other medications. It can be used both topically and orally, but never injected. ICS can help with coughs and colds, eye infections, heel infection, stomach ailments, skin rashes and hoof abscesses. For topical uses, spray the affected area 4 or 5 times a day. For Coughs and Colds using a NEBULISER works particularly well. For more information on Nebulisers please see http://www.flexineb.co.uk
IMPORTANT: Always seek the advice of a registered vet if you have doubts about your animal's health.
CONTRAINDICATIONS - A Herxheimer Reaction or Healing Crisis
Silver, when nebulised, is extremely powerful when introduced directly into the lungs and bloodstream. Many will experience this reaction if they are currently ill with an infection. The flu-like symptoms experienced are the result of the body being overwhelmed with the rapid release of dead bacteria and antigens.
The most common side-effects of a Herxheimer Reaction are nausea, headaches, sore joints, fever, chills, rashes, acne, loss of appetite, fatigue, etc. Be sure to cease nebulisation sessions if you feel the onset of these flu-like symptoms in order to allow the body to purge the bacteria before resuming your regular nebulisation sessions. Never let a child use a Nebuliser unattended.
In recorded history of the medicinal use of Ionic Colloidal Silver, there have been no 'allergenic' reactions to silver reported.
DO NOT use Ionic Colloidal Silver if you are allergic to contact with Silver metals or if you notice any digestive upset after use. It is up to you to make sure that you use it responsibly. As a test, before you nebulise, pour some Ionic Colloidal Silver on the skin surface on top of your wrist and smooth it gently over the skin surface. Watch for grey patches that instantly appear on the skin upon colloidal silver application. If grey discolouration occurs, do not utilize silver in any form (any discolouration is only temporary). If there is no reaction after a minute or two then you should be OK to start nebulising. It should be noted that reactions are very rare. Always consult with you preferred health practitioner if you are unsure.
