Uses of colloidal silver

Uses of colloidal silver

  • Since ancient Greek and Roman times, colloidal silver has been utilized for its antimicrobial properties to preserve food and to treat medical conditions. Because of the wave of synthetic medicine, colloidal silver started to lose its popularity. As antibiotics have begun to receive a bad reputation, supplements like colloidal silver have started gaining popularity once again. In addition to its antimicrobial properties, colloidal silver may provide antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, making it a great remedy for man conditions.
  • Let’s look at the uses of colloidal silver.
  • 1. Spray it onto burns to prevent them from being infected and promote quicker, more effective healing without scars.
  • 2. Spray or dab it on conditions such as ringworm, herpes, boils, and warts to facilitate more effective healing.
  • 3. If you are suffering from walking pneumonia or bronchial conditions, colloidal silver can be added to a nebulizer and inhaled to promote healing.
  • 4. Colloidal silver can bolster the immune system, creating a stronger line of defense against viruses like the flu and cold.
  • 5. Drops made with colloidal silver can be used to cure ear infections. It has been used for nasal infections and eye infections as well.
  • 6. It can be used as a topical treatment for vaginal yeast infections or oral thrush infections because of its anti-fungal properties.
  • 7. Colloidal may be useful in assisting fetal development and ease of delivery in pregnant women.
  • 8. Because of its antibacterial benefits, colloidal silver can be taken at the early stages of a cold or flu and bronchitis to kill bad bacteria and preserve good bacteria. Antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria.
  • 9. Studies have shown that colloidal silver has the ability to fight MRSA infections (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). MRSA is a staph infection that has become resistant to antibiotics.
  • 10. A study published in the journal Nanobiotechnology has shown that colloidal silver may be beneficial in AIDS patients. It helps strengthen the immune system and may destroy existing pathogens.
  • Precautions:
  • Animal studies have found that colloidal silver builds up in the tissues of the body, and the Food and Drug Administration has issued a consumer advisory about the long-term use of colloidal silver. There is a risk of developing a skin condition called argyria. Argyria causes the skin, nails and gums to have a bluish-gray to gray-black pigmentation, and it is unfortunately irreversible.
  • Due to the lack of evidence and the risk of serious side effects, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center advises against taking colloidal silver internally.
  • As with everything, proceed with care.
  • As always: Check with your health practitioner before you change your diet and see if this is right for you. This is not meant to replace any treatment or drugs you are taking.
