Ionic Colloidal Silver (ICS) - The "Silver Bullet?”

What is Ionic Colloidal Silver?

Known as a bactericide for at least 1200 years - colloidal silver is used against bacterial infections, both as a remedy and prevention. ICS also disables viruses.

In his best seller "The Body Electric", Dr. Robert O. Becker, a leading research scientist in the field of bone regeneration, stated:

"The germ killing action of silver has been known for some time. The Soviets use silver ions to sterilize recycled water aboard their space stations. It kills even antibiotic-resistant strains, and also works on fungus infections."

He goes on to say:

"It stimulates bone-forming cells, cures the most common stubborn infections of all kinds of bacteria, and stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues."

Becker found that all cancer patients had a definite deficiency of silver - A silver deficiency leads to an impaired immune system.

Not much is heard about colloidal silver because it can not be patented, and knowledge of the effectiveness and availability of colloidal silver would severely cut into pharmaceutical profits on the various antibiotics, flu, and cold remedies.

Dr.Beck's Ionic Colloidal SIlver (also called "electro-silver") is made by the "low voltage electrolysis" method in distilled water - ICS has a silver content (by weight) of about 90% silver ions and 10% colloidal silver particles.

A silver ion - is a silver atom which has lost an electron and consequently becomes positively charged. Due to the mutual repulsion of the charges of silver ions, they remain dispersed in solution and do not cluster. (In making Ionic Colloidal Silver, silver ions are drawn off the positive electrode in the water, in which they are water soluble). Their positive charge is of primary importance in healing, and killing bacteria.

Colloidal silver particles-are microscopic (.01 to .001 microns) clusters of about 15-30 silver atoms which have a negativeparticle charge due to adsorption of ions on the particle's surface. Particles that are so small remain suspended in water indefinitely and do not settle out. (How colloidal particles are formed: Some of the ions in close proximity to the negative electrode in the water will attach an electron from the flowing current and change back from an ion into an atom. These atoms are held together by a force of attraction called Van der Waal's Force, which causes like-atoms or molecules to be attracted to each other). Minerals (including silver) are contained in fruits and vegetables in colloidal form.

What Does Ionic Colloidal Silver Do?

In the body, it lessens the load on the immune system - by killing the many "bugs" present. The immune system is then able to keep up with its day-to-day jobs. Note that a properly functioning immune system kills cancer cells at a rate about the same as they occur (a normal, healthy body supposedly produces ~40 million cancer cells a day).

Energizes the electrical system of the body - The body functions better, resulting in better health, energy and vigor.

Ionic Colloidal Silver Is an Exceptional Antibiotic - Ionic Colloidal Silver is the only natural, harmless, non toxic antibiotic effective against almost all pathogens.


Ionic Colloidal Silver(ICS)

Pharmaceutical Antibiotics

No side effects, harmless to all parts of the body - including the body's enzymes. Promotes healing with less scar tissue. Aids liver regeneration.

Gastro-intestinal upset. Can harm liver, kidneys and enzymes

Kills 650 pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, fungus and yeast.

A particular antibiotic will kill only a few bacteria types and not many will kill fungi. Viruses are immune to antibiotics.

Bacteria, even so-called "Super Bugs", can not become resistant to colloidal silver solution - Effective against most pathogens, including HIV, Epstein Barr virus, Gonorrhea bacteria,parasites, Candidaand Lyme's disease

Many diseases are becoming resistant to pharmaceutical antibiotics

Silver causes death of pathogens within 6 minutes - by disabling their respiration ability

Kills the bacteria when it tries to divide (penicillin type antibiotics) or will prevent the pathogen from dividing (tetracycline type antibiotics)

Inexpensive to make today (used to be very expensive in early 1900's)


How Does Ionic Colloidal Silver Work?

Silver kills or disables bacteria, viruses and fungi - it does this by acting as a positively-charged catalyst to attract and unite oxygen and microbes , such that oxygen can then use its oxidative ability to deal with these microbes, which are subsequently cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems.

Ionic Colloidal Silver Storage

Stores with near full potency for about 1 month - After 6 months it can lose most of its potency.

Keep in dark amber or cobalt blue glass containers - Since colloidal silver is photo-reactive it will turn gray in light, therefore, it should be kept in containers that exclude light.If it turns gray, throw it away.

Store at a cool temperature, in a dark area, but not refrigerated or frozen.

Does Ionic Colloidal Silver Cause any adverse Reactions?

Ionic Colloidal Silver is painless on cuts and abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils and even in babies' eyes - Silver nitrate, a silver compound used to be routinely put into the eyes of newborn babies to prevent infection.

Used internally in moderate quantities, it is safe and healthy for the body. For decades,prestigious journals such as the Lancet, the British Medical Journal and the Journal of the American Medical Association have attested to the safety and efficacy of crude "ground-up particle" colloidal silver, usually many times more concentrated, and yet much less effective thantoday'sionic colloidalsilver.

–    Cleansing Reactions - If pathogens are killed off too quickly, the body's five eliminatory channels (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs, and bowel) may be temporarily overloaded, causing flu-like conditions and /or rash. To ease detoxification symptoms and flush out dead pathogens, drink plenty of water. People with serious problems should build up to a therapeutic dose over a few days.

–    Drug Interactions – Other than reactions from massive doses of silver salts, there is no known silver and drug/medicine/herb interaction of any kind.

Note on Argyria - this condition is usually caused by the massive intake of silver salts (compounds), such as silver nitrate, silver sulfate and silver chloride. The body starts to store the excess silver in the tissue and collagen in the fingernails. This is noticed by a grey/blue tinge of the fingernails and the skin and has no known detrimental effect other than the bluish /grey color. There has never been a case of argyria reported from the use of properly made and stored ionic colloidal silver, and thus free of salts or other impurities, which could produce silver compounds. Argyria is caused by compounds of silver and not by Ionic Colloidal Silver. The colloidal component of ICS provides numerous sites for the silver chloride (produced in the stomach by hydrochloric acid), to precipitate out on when it arrives in the blood. Without them, they would be photo-reduced in the skin.
