Centuries Old Way to Wipe Out
Bacterial, Viral and Fungal Invaders

Dear Reader,

Do you know someone who catches every cold and flu, or has an infection that isn’t killed with antibiotics?

If so, you need to hear about Ionic-Colloidal Silver.

Ionic-Colloidal Silver suffocates single-cell organisms (bacteria, viruses, fungus) – deprives them of oxygen so they die. Sound like magic? It might, because of the many misconceptions so please read on…

One of our customers wrote:
I have been using Ionic-Colloidal Silver to stop colds and flus for about a decade, and I am the picture of health. That is not to say I never got a single cold, but the ratio of the ones I have fought off, to the ones that got hold of me is by far and away in my favor. I may get one a year. How great is that?

Centuries Old Medicinal Use…

  • In his writings, Hippocrates discussed using silver in wound care.
  • The Greeks and Romans used silver vessels to drink from and store liquids, and to keep them from going bad.
  • Early Americans put a silver dollar in milk to delay its spoiling. Back then, a silver dollar was made of actual silver.
  • During World War I, soldiers used silver leaf to treat infected wounds.
  • In the early 20th century, surgeons routinely used silver sutures to reduce the risk of infection, physicians used silver drops to treat various eye infections, and sometimes gave silver internally for diseases such as gonorrhea and the common cold.

The use of silver was widespread until World War II. With the development of modern antibiotics in the 1940s, using silver as an antimicrobial agent diminished. Antibiotics became the standard treatment for infections. But now, because of overuse, many pathogens are becoming resistant to antibiotics.

Recently, Ionic-Colloidal Silver has been reintroduced as a natural alternative to reduce and kill bacterial, viral and fungal infections. With increasing popularity comes controversy and questions.

Because there are limits on what science can prove, we take care to honestly give you facts and claims. Let’s address a few of them:

Frequently Asked Questions about Colloidal/Ionic Silver

Ionic – not Colloidal – Silver Kills Pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungus) – TRUE
Colloidal Silver is actually the source of Ionic Silver. Although Colloidal Silver does not kill pathogens, it DOES slowly dissolve down into Ionic Silver. The base water in our Ionic-Colloidal Silver reaches its saturation point – the maximum it can hold – at 13 ppm and the rest of the Silver within is Colloidal.

A colloid by definition means molecules suspended in a solution, although even well respected scientific texts do not consistently agree on some details.
Ionic by definition means atoms that are missing an electron (it has a plus-one electrical charge), or have an extra electron (negative electrical charge)

Taking Silver Makes Your Skin Turn Silver – FALSE (mostly)
This actually can happen, but you would have to take vast quantities over an extended period of time – maybe tenfold the dosage for many weeks or months. Still, this condition fuels the controversy.

Good time to mention that many of us eat plenty of harmful and illness-causing substances (MSG and Aspartame!) that damage us internally – without short-term visible effects. And the government is OK with that!?

Bacteria Cannot Become Resistant to Ionic-Colloidal Silver – TRUE
Enthusiasts of alternative healing methods (that’s us!) claim that Ionic-Colloidal Silver can heal conditions that are often not treatable with conventional medicine (like colds and flus). When using Ionic-Colloidal Silver as an antibiotic, the bacteria cannot become resistant as they can become to antibiotics. A recent threat – methicillin resistant staphyllococcus aureus (MRSA) – has been causing serious trouble and no antibiotic can stop its spread.

Ionic-Colloidal Silver Threatens the Pharmaceutical Industry – TRUE
Because silver is naturally occurring, it cannot be patented, so it’s not economically profitable for research and development by the pharmaceutical industry. The government abandoned basic research on silver years ago.

Ionic-Colloidal Silver Kills Your Good Bacteria Too – TRUE
This is one reason why you need Probiotics, and we have many great ones to help. It is very important for your long-term health to take a probiotic supplement during and after using silver (and after antibiotics!) to rebuild your natural intestinal flora.

A colloid by definition means molecules suspended in a solution, although even well respected scientific texts do not consistently agree on some details.
Ionic by definition means atoms that are missing an electron (it has a plus-one electrical charge), or have an extra electron (negative electrical charge).

The Bottom Line ~ Your Personal Experience is the Best Proof

Right now, all this is beyond the realm of science to prove for certain. The following information is from users’ personal experiences, for you to make up your mind.

Ionic-Colloidal Silver will kill bacteria, viruses and fungi within or on your body.

You can take a large dose in the short term as needed for an infection, but users report better effectiveness when taking smaller doses more frequently. It’s more beneficial to use Ionic-Colloidal Silver every 1-4 hours (as long as needed) than it is to use a large amount once. Users recommend to be aggressive – use Ionic-Colloidal Silver for half to a full day – or for as many days as it takes.

For the first signs of a sore throat, cold, flu or sinus infection (or anything of the sort), it seems the sooner you take Ionic-Colloidal Silver, the better by far. About 80-90% of people who used it on the first day report that symptoms are better within half a day, and don’t end up being sick (even if everyone in the office or home has a severe flu for two weeks).

If it’s already a full-blown cold or flu and the condition has really taken hold, most say there’s little chance of it going away completely in just a day or so, but they also report shorter duration and milder symptoms.

Use Ionic-Colloidal Silver Where It Is Needed Most

Taking Silver orally works, but the severity of your condition may benefit from local application.

Nose and Throat
Take 8 to 12 sprays in your mouth/throat, every 1 to 4 hours.
Or 3 to 4 drops in your mouth every 1 to 4 hours.

Nasal Congestion and Infections
Take a number of sprays or snort some drops directly into your nose.
Some may snort 1-2 droppers in each nostril every 1-4 hours, or just 1-2 times a day.

Coughs and Lung Infections
Exhale and spray at your throat while inhaling deeply, hold then exhale.
You can repeat this a few times, and every 1-4 hours as you feel the need.

Always Keep a Bottle Ready
