Colloidal Silver is one of those staples our family can not do without. We use it to treat just about everything we come up against and it has more uses than most people realize and despite the propaganda, colloidal silver research and clinical studies are numerous and well documented. For all the reasons I advocate colloidal silver like I do, here are at least 10 really good reasons you should have colloidal silver in your home too.
10 REALLY GOOD REASONS TO HAVE COLLOIDAL SILVER IN YOUR HOME:
- Colloidal Silver is a potent antiviral
If it’s a virus you’re fighting, Colloidal Silver will have your back. Dr. Martin Hum from the institute for Optimum Nutrition lists Colloidal Silver and one of the natural remedies to stop viruses fast. Colloidal Silver suffocates the virus and even reduces the activity of the HIV virus in AIDS patients. It has also been known to greatly help those who suffer with Hepatitis C virus. (1)
- Eliminate Eye Infections
As a personal testimony to the magic of Colloidal Silver, I cleared an eye infection (pink eye) within 3 days which took my mom almost 2 weeks to get rid of. I also helped my baby get rid of his conjunctivitis in no time flat. Simply add two or three drops of colloidal silver to the eye and repeat three to four times a day or you can use an eyewash cup if that is easier for you. You will be amazed at how fast it works! But don’t just take my word for it; check out some other testimonials from real people who have had real results using silver. (2)
- Treat Ear Infections
Ear infections are often caused by several different types of bacteria or even fungus. In these cases, prescription drugs may be ineffective as they are only designed to work against specific classes of bacteria. Since Colloidal Silver kills so many different kinds of bacteria and fungi, it offers a promising remedy and even helps to heal swimmers’ ear.
- Potent Anti-Inflammatory
Studies have found that Colloidal Silver speeds up the recovery process as it helps bring inflammation levels down quickly. One study at the National Institute of Health studied the effects of Colloidal Silver on skin inflammation in pigs and they found that the ones treated with silver experienced near recovery within just 72 hours where other pigs’ skin remained inflamed.
- Perfect for Owies and Uh Oh’s
As a mom I can’t tell you how many scrapes, cuts, and burns I’ve used Colloidal Silver for. Colloidal Silver stimulates skin and tissue healing while reducing inflammation which makes it perfect for owies and uh oh’s. Silver has also been proven to promote the growth of new cells which is another reason wounds heal much quicker with Silver present and unlike other metals with antimicrobial properties, it is not toxic for humans.(3)
- Puts Colds to Bed
A 2011 study from the National Institute of Health took 100 children under the age of 12 experiencing symptoms from the common cold and nasal congestion and assigned them into two separate groups. The first was treated with a solution of colloidal silver and beta glucan and the second was treated with a saline solution. Even though both groups benefited from the treatment, 90% of the people in the Colloidal Silver group completely recovered.
- Sore throat relief
Simply gargle with some silver to pick up and remove unwanted pathogens in your throat creating pain. You can do this several times throughout the day and be sure to spit it out to remove it from you body. You can also use silver as a throat spray.
- Fruit and Veggie Wash
As much as we all wish we could buy all organic all of the time – life doesn’t always work out that way. Again, silver has your back. You can make a mix of 1/2 cup vinegar, two tsp of salt and 1/4 cup of silver to spray on your fresh produce for clean and chemical free wholesome goodness.
- Aids in Reducing Odors
If you have pets who tend to “go” inside more than out, spraying colloidal silver is often used as a natural way to keep your home smelling great. It removes the odor and helps stop the pet marking in the spot again. (I did say this stuff was magic, right?)
- Your Pets Can Have Some Too!
That’s right, your furry friends can benefit from Colloidal Silver just as much as we can. In fact, silver helped one of our dogs get rid of some unsightly tumors that had developed on his rear end. We gave him silver in his drinking water and sprayed some directly to the area that was affected. It really helped keep the pain and inflammation levels down.
For dogs, use it for infections, minor cuts and wounds, pink eye and ear infections and ringworm. When using orally you can simply use 5 to 10 drops twice a day. For cleaning wounds, apply several times a day on a cotton swab for up to 10 days while eye infections only require one drop three times daily.
If you have multiple pets where Parvo virus outbreaks can occur at anytime; add 1/2-1 ounce of Colloidal Silver per pet to their water bowls weekly.
