Default Colloidal Silver and Flu

Many of you had recommended Colloidal Silver as part of your line of defense in case of flu or other illness, which is why I've been looking into it over the past few weeks, and finally decided to purchase some to have in our medicine cabinet.

I had some questions about the product I bought (Sovereign Silver) so I called them. They were very helpful and I actually had an opportunity to talk to a Dr. that was there. He was helping me with some info about possible allergic reaction to the product (very unlikely, but I had questions because my daughter is allergic to many different medicines).

Then he gave me some interesting information. He said that H1N1 has been shown to settle into the gut, and that IF you suspect you have been exposed to it AND begin to feel sick, he would recommend 2 TBS every 15 min. for 2 hrs. to flood the gut, then 2 TBS every 2 hrs. after that. He said that should completely disable the virus. He also said that he would change the dose to 2 tsp for children.

So - what do you guys think? I'm new to taking CS and that sounds like a lot....It's hard to feel comfortable flooding your system with a product that for me is so new and I'm not totally sure how my kids would react to that much.

On the other hand - I hate to imagine some horrible virus invading their bodies and attacking them, and if CS would really work that effectively, I should probably just go for it.

Thanks for any opinions...

1/2 cup every 2 hours for the whole day has always worked for me under the few conditions that I felt I needed to take it. I think it is important to hit it frequently; in case it has its own cycle or doesn't die off completely on the first round of CS.

It's good to know that info that it settles in the gut. That will be bad enough for me. That's my main weakness area. It seems every bad thing starts in the intestines. Even if we don't recognize it for what it is, it will be a good course of action. Most people won't even know they have it until it affects their lungs, fever, sinuses, etc.

I am interested in the silver products too, I would be interested to here what everyone has to say as I have been a bit confused about it, and found that not all silver is true cs, some are ionic which doesnt have the same benefits ?
I read that the particle size matters too I came across this mesosilver product that looked like true cs with small partical size and no proteins, anyone tried it?

Colloidal silver will not hurt you. There is only one person that I know who turned blue from colloidal silver, and he admitted to drinking large amounts every day for many years.

I do not believe that viruses settle in the gut. It makes more sense that they settle in the lungs, where they can multiply and cause a secondary infection such as pneumonia.

Once the colloidal silver is swallowed, it enters the blood, and from there goes to every organ in the body, killing pathogens along the way, including viruses.

The best defence against any flu is having a good immune system, and that starts with optimal vitamin D3. The RDA of D3 is way too low. Adults need a minimum 4000 I.U. of D3 per day during the fall and winter months, and overweight people need twice that amount. The optimal level of vitamin D3 is between 60 and 80 ng per ml of blood, and the only way to check that properly is with a D-hydroxy25 blood test.

Hi Edenangel,

That's the only kind of CS that I've ever tried, Mesosilver 20ppm. All the information IS very confusing out there.

I made my decision to buy that brand around 4 yrs. ago, making my judgements on the comparison charts with the other brands.

I bought 4 bottles or so, and my husband and I took modest doses on a daily basis throughout the winter. We didn't avoid colds, but instead seemed to have a low-grade version of "the crud" that whole season.

I still think it's probably a good quality CS, and I most likely took it in too small doses. I may buy it again someday, but now I'm ready to try something different.

I have a bottle of Respiratory Support CS ordered from Get Healthy again. It's supposed to be used in a nebulizer. I'll also be buying some other brand to take orally, and will use the advice from the folks here to help me make my decision.

Question Shining a light through Colloidal Silver?

Someone recently posted about shining a flashlight through the CS, and if there's silver in there, it should show red?

I've received my bottle of Respiratory Support CS, and I wanted to test it somehow to be sure it's not just tap water.

Anyhoo, I can't find the post, so would the author please direct me?

Found it! It was nightowl, speaking of a red lazer.

Quote:
This Sovereign Silver is 10 ppm and 0.0008 microns in size. An easy way to test the silver to see if it's suspended in the water (without shaking the bottle) is to shine a red lazer light through it. Distilled water has no minerals so won't reflect light, but the silver glows and there should be a bright beam when you shine the light through the bottle.

Default home made CS

I have used CS for over 10 years and havent turned blue! I also use it on my pets with great success!!! There are sites which show how to make your own CS Generator without spending a lot of money, which is good because many of are being ripped off with extortionate prices. Google "DIY colloidal silver generators" and you should find a link.

Namaste,

Rev

I have seen several versions of colloidal silver "generators" on youtube, and I have to say that is not the way to go. First, you have to start with distilled water, with no exceptions. I saw people use mineral water, well water, tap water, and R.O. water, however, you can't use these to make good quality colloidal silver.

Secondly, you need top quality silver rods, preferably 7 gauge 99.99 pure silver, not silver coins or skinny #12 gauge 99.9% silver because they are not pure enough.

Thirdly, you need a closed system so it doesn't get contaminated by anything while its being made.

The power supply needs to be approx 30 volts D.C. so that it is constant and steady, thus, not allowing it to fluctuate.

And last but not least, the solution needs to be constantly stirred while it is being made. This can easily be done with magnetic stirring.

You also need to use a TDS meter. This measures the total dissolved solids (in parts per million) in your solution. If you start with steam distilled water, which is a must, the "before" water will read 1ppm or less. The finished solution should read between 19 and 21ppm. Since the only addition to the "before" water was the silver rods, it makes total sense that the 20ppm finished product must be from the silver in the form of 80 to 85% silver ions and 20 to 25% silver particles.

The bottom line is that when you use a poor quality generator, you have no idea of the quality of silver product you are making. In order to make a good product you need to use a top quality generator and must follow an exact protocol, starting with distilled water only.

There are several good quality generators for sale, however, I could only find one that uses #7 gauge pure silver rods, is totally enclosed to prevent contamination, shuts off automatically after making a 20ppm solution, has magnetic stirring, and is silent operating.

This unit makes 1.1 litres per batch (4.5 hours approx) and has a thousand uses, and can be seen here:

Use some as an underarm deodorant, then go jogging or play tennis. If its not working you will be able to tell right away.

Here is a simple demonstration by Dr Bob Beck and the result is you have your own colloidal silver without having to pay excessive prices at healthfood stores or on the internet:-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2VR1cmmCGg

I have been making my own colloidal silver for over 10 yrs and have seen positive results each time. I have a special water filter system and don't use distilled/purified water, and their have been no negative reactions.

Namaste,

Rev

I watched the video.

He uses skinny silver rods, a battery, and an open glass... as explained above, the system is open to contamination and there is no way to determine the strength or quality of the silver produced in this manner.

My only suggestion is if you plan on using silver for several more years, and I recommend that you do, then why not buy a decent system so that you know the quality and strength of the silver solution you are producing..

On a final note, my first system consisted of two canadian maple leaf pure silver coins, a 500 milliamp adaptor with alligator clips from a video game, and an extra large A@W root beer glass. The solution was stirred by a bubbler from a fish tank. I thought this was a good system but soon realized there was no was to know exactly what I was making...

I will continue making my CS without changes, its worked for me for over 10yrs. Treatments are 100% success!
The quality of the You Tube video isn't great, but what I like about Dr Beck is that he shows us that we can make it ourselves cheaply! He isn't in this to rip people off, unlike many others! A lot of people cannot afford some of the expensive generators and so this basic model lets people access this wonderful product. The prices for a 100ml bottle of CS are way too expensive, and this is through unscrupulous people trying to cash in on CS; they label it "best on the market" and add fancy looking names to beguil people!
Dr Beck tells us how it is! He was honest unlike many of todays CS charlatans.

Namaste,

Rev

Good question limitme. I've often wondered about that. Also include grapefruit seed extract and olive leaf extract in that list of antifungal and antibiotic. But my experience shows clearly that CS is the best. I'm not like everyone else though. I'm mostly jealous at how many things work for others that don't work for me. From personal experience, CS works the best and the fastest.
