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:
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.
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
negative particle 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).

in fruits and vegetables in colloidal form.
What Does Ionic Colloidal Silver Do?
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).

body functions better, resulting in better health, energy and vigor.
Ionic Colloidal Silver Is an Exceptional Antibiotic -

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

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