Colloidal Silver/Ionic Silver
-Yes works for dogs!
The Rediscovery of a Super Antibiotic?
Extensive research conducted by Robert O. Becker ( a research medical doctor who wrote the book “The Body Electric” ) conclusively demonstrated several important facts:
1) silver electrodes placed at the site of a wound eliminate bacterial infections 100% and speed tissue repair and growth.
2) Most likely because of its charged state, ionic silver encourages the production of stem cells, or at the very least causes fibroblasts to alter their normal cellular morphology.
Ionic and Colloidal silver appears to be a powerful, natural antibiotic and preventative against infections. Acting as a catalyst, it reportedly disables the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. They suffocate without corresponding harm occurring to enzymes or parts of the body chemistry. The result is the destruction of disease-causing organisms in the body and in the food.
The presence of ionic or colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal or ionic silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus silver is absolutely safe for dogs, cats, birds, humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.
Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transported quickly to the body cells. Placing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption. In three to four days the silver may accumulate in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin.
Ionic or Colloidal silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel after several weeks. If routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, some recommend a regular daily intake as a protection. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of silver may hasten healing, reducing the possibility of scar tissue and infection. It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that the lives of millions of pets and people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.
Some have used silver in a nasal spray mister – to reach the sinuses and nasal passages. Spray bottles have been used for topical use on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, skin, sore throat, eyes, ear infections, burns, etc. Ionic silver is painless on cuts, abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils for a stuffy nose, and even in a puppy or baby’s eyes because, unlike some antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells.
The difference between Colloidal Silver and Ionic Silver
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.
Colloidal silver is made up of tiny nanoparticles of metallic silver. The particles are complete and do not combine with other elements. In its ionic form, silver is highly reactive with other elements, and will readily combine to form compounds. Inside the human body chloride is the most prevalent anion. Silver ions will immediately combine with chloride to form an insoluble compound of silver chloride.
While colloidal silver can work remarkably well, it only provides a fraction of the potential that ionic silver offers. The problem with colloidal silver is that only a small portion of the silver is ionic, and only a small portion of that is ever released in the body as bioactive ions because it’s in the form of silver oxide and/or silver hydroxide, which is very far too stable to ever dissociate and yield silver ions while passing through the body before being excreted.
Silver 100™ with Opti-Silver™ is far more efficient than all other forms of silver. Silver 100™ with Opti-Silver™ utilizes an entirely new approach to silver ion delivery in the human body. It is designed to overcome all the limitations of colloidal silver and all other forms of silver. It utilizes a proprietary method of complexing silver ions with a specific form of citrate that acts as the stabilizer and delivery vehicle. Silver 100™ is designed to gradually decomplex, and thereby release the silver ions, only after being absorbed well into the system. It is designed to deliver all of its silver as ions. The result is that you get far better results by using far less.
Superior efficiency = more economical.

“Use of Colloids in Health and Disease.” Colloidal silver has proven particularly effective in cases of intestinal troubles. Dr. Henry Crooks found that “silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. Rather than in a chemical compound, the silver in the colloidal state may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with correspondingly better results. All virus, fungus, bacterium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, and other pathogenic organisms are killed in three or four minutes upon contact. There are no side effects whatsoever from the highest concentrations.”
Dr. Robert Becker, ” The Body Electric,” recognized a correlation between low silver levels and sickness. He said the silver deficiency was responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system. Dr. Becker’s experiments conclude that silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or damage to any part of the body. He also states that the silver was doing something more than killing disease organisms. It was also causing major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and elderly patients noticed more rapid healing. He discovered that all cancer cells change back to normal cells. All strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are killed by colloidal silver. Yet at that time he couldn’t find a silver supplement on the market.
“Silver, Our Mightiest Germ Fighter,” ScienceDigest, March 1978. As an antibiotic, colloidal silver kills over 650 disease causing organisms, and resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have and is absolutely non-toxic! Doctors report that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera, malaria, diabetes and severe burns. Richard L. Davies, executive director of the Silver Institute which monitors silver technology in 37 countries, reports: “In four years we’ve described 87 important new medical uses for silver.” Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used silver in his cancer treatment method. He says the whole thing is quite simple. This brought rapid remission in patients given up on by other doctors. The FDA has stated that because colloidal silver is accepted as a pre-1938 medication, it may continue to be marketed. Letter, 13 September 1991, received from consumer safety officer Harold Davis, U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
“Colloidal Preparations of Silver in Pharmacy,” British Medical Journal, February 1923: “Pure Silver is entirely non-irritant. In tests at very high concentrations, it has been shown repeatedly that the rapidly exerted disinfectant action is of considerable therapeutic value.” Dr. Otto Warberg (Nobel Prize Winner, 1932) stated that “Cancer is caused by the lack of oxygen and the fermentation of sugars.”
Provo Herald, 13 February 1992, page D1:
“Colloidal Silver as a Remedy for AIDS.quot; American Drug Index, section on Inorganic Pharmaceutical Chemistry, recognized silver for its germicidal action, calling a stabilized form: Mild Silver Protein. There are several concentrations of Mild Silver Protein. The Condensed Medical Dictionary, 6th Edition: Mild Silver Protein is listed for medicinal use. The 4s protein-2 is the trace used as a stabilizer.

Royalty, worldwide, have been called “Blue Bloods,” because of the silver content in their blood, even from birth. They used real silverware, ate from silver dishes, and stored their food in silver containers. There were no doctors. The common people were often sick with something.
