Let’s talk about Colloidal silver! Just like wild oregano oil, there are SO many uses for this anti-pathogen agent. This is due to colloidal and nano-sized silver being antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial – a triple whammy! The silver ion (Ag+) is bioactive, and in sufficient concentration readily kills bacteria in vitro. Silver also kills bacteria in external wounds in living tissue, so physicians use wound dressings containing silver sulfadiazine, or silver nanomaterials to treat external infections.

The disinfectant properties of silver are used in medical applications like urinary catheters and endotracheal breathing tubes, where the silver content is effective in reducing incidences of catheter-related urinary tract infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Silver is also used in bone prostheses, reconstructive orthopaedic surgery and cardiac devices, as well as on surfaces and fabrics to reduce the spread of infection.

I’ve written about using colloidal silver in a homemade natural aloe hand sanitizer, as I much prefer using it (along with hydrogen peroxide & essential oils) as ingredients over abrasive isopropyl alcohol. It’s also a part of my dental decay healing protocol, can be used as a sinus flush in a Neti pot, or in a vaporizer for lung infection and inflammation.

Colloidal silver is even used at the Goldberg Clinic! Once Dr. Paul Goldberg knows what you are infected with, he has his lab test to see which anti-pathogen agents are effective against your bugs. They test colloidal silver, wild oregano oil, grapefruit seed extract and drug antibiotics. More info on that here.

The colloidal silver in our shoppe has especially tiny silver nanoparticles – it is not quite angstrom sized, but can be considered nanoparticle-sized silver, since the average particle size in this liquid colloidal silver product ranges from approximately 1 to 100 nanometers, or about 0.001 microns. This tiny particle size means that absorption is heightened for optimum colloidal silver benefits, and that’s why I sourced this one to be used in my various healing remedies (like StrictureHeal and my perianal abscess & fistula treatment).

In my natural parasite solution it is taken orally – but be sure if you are consuming silver orally that you also supplement with a potent probiotic, as it will kill ALL bacteria in the gut (similar to wild oregano oil). I recommend Natren probiotics, and here is a cheat sheet on how to choose your Natren probiotic. You can also can use this as a guideline to select your own brand of probiotic, if you wish.

We’ve recently added a larger sized bottle of colloidal silver to our shoppe, so you can get started right away using this FANTASTIC and versatile anti-pathogen agent!
