Ionic/Colloidial Silver

Posted by   + Show Post
Hello mommies, today I would like to know have any of you ever heard of a solution like that can kill over 600,000 bacteria, fungi, diseases and viruses? I haven't tried it before but I would like to give it a try to build up my immune system. Not saying that I have anything deadly, just really courious to try it out. If any of you mommies have ever tried it pls share your story with me and other mommies all over. Peace

Did you miss what I've been saying?

First off, you don't have to jug it by the gallon everyday!  IT'S CONSTANT AND CONSISTENT EXPOSURE OVER TIME!  So, there are people who have taken it over the course of decades before they even develop any kind of tinting to the skin.  

I DID say that it won't affect your cat like that since it's used for such a short period of time. 

I think we're having two different arguments here and you really don't want to hear others opinions other than the ones that support your own.  I'm talking to you about the process of how you can permanently alter the color of your skin and it's a proven scientific process, but you don't seem to grasp the conversation.  You want to use it, then by all means go ahead!  This was a potential side effect that was presented to you and how it works and you simply say "no."  Maybe you should learn the science behind it as opposed to just saying "no" simply because you gave it to your cat for a few weeks and it didn't change their skin color.  It's called learning something new.


Quoting PinkButterfly66:

And you have no experience with pure ionic or colloidal silver. You would have to jug it by the gallon EVERY DAY.  I am done with this conversation.

You clearly have no chemistry of biology background to make a statement like that and show that you have no understanding of how your body works and how the silver effects it. 

Yes, the silver particles are extremely small but that doesn't mean your body doesn't recognize it or cannot absorb it.  Those processes take place EVERY SECOND in your body with things that are much smaller than those silver particles.  When you ingest the silver, your body rapidly dissolves it into even smaller silver nanoparticles in the presence of acid (ie. your stomach).  This dissolution then allows your body to absorb those silver nanoparticles.  In turn, they become part of your body and incorporated in your cells.  Eventually, if you ingest enough for a sufficient period of time your skin will change color due to the fact that you have these silver nanoparticles part of your cells and they continue to oxidize when exposed to the sun, turning the surface of your skin dark or bluish-gray because your body isn't actually getting rid of these nanoparticles but rather accumulating them. 

Think in terms of osmosis where you have a cell in a salt water solution.  The body's natural response is to try to create a sense of homeostasis or a balance between its inside and outside environment, so the cell will allow NaCl compounds to enter into it until some kind of balance between the outside environment and inside the cell are achieved. 

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

Ionic and colloidal silver particles are too small.  Yes, it does matter.

Quoting Anonymous:


You do realize that it doesn't matter - it's the silver particles that are key.  It's about the chronic intake and accumulation of silver products.  Whether it is dissolved in distilled water, which many do, or taken in another form the common factor is silver and the fact that you are taking in silver particles into your body which it rapidly dissolves in an acidic environment. 

If you are using it on your cat for such a short amount of time, then you won't see effects like that.  However, long-term and consistent use and exposure can cause your skin to permanently change color. 

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

Yes it actually does matter.  Colloidal silver made with distilled water and .9999 pure silver rods does not cause argyria. It is extremely effective, actually.  I know from personal experience.  I had a cat who would get a uti every December, without fail.  Poor little guy would pee blood. I would dose him with 2 tsp of cs every 4 hours and by the 3 dose, instead of peeing only drops, it was dime size and by the next morning it was quarter size.  By the end of the second day, it was golf ball size.  He would be completely better in 3 days, but I would continue the CS for 10 days.  Whenever my cats get eye infections, it is my go to med.  I put cs drops in their eyes every few hours and dose them with 2 tsp 4 times a day.  Never fails to clear it up quickly. 

Quoting Anonymous:


I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter.

The increased presence of silver in your body is what causes it.  Doesn't really matter in what form you are taking it.  You ingest it and it gets distributed throughout your body and diffused all over the skin.  Silver oxidizes and since we do go out in the sun, the silver that you have ingested will also oxidize and darken.  So, the more you take it and the longer you do the greater the risk since your body has such high percentages of the silver. 

The efficacy of taking it has never been proven either. 

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

No, it is the silver salts that cause this, not pure colloidal silver.

You realize that if you consistently take colloidial silver, your skin will permanently change color to sometimes blue?

It was taken off the market simply because the FDA doesn't want to cure cancer, aids or anything else, there is too much money to be made, there are lists and lists of similiar products the FDA stopped, that were also proven effective.

However with anything, it need be not abused.

Yup.

Once she started saying that they are too small, it was pretty much a lost cause.

I just saw this and wanted to chime in.. The "too small" comments caught my eye. Ladies please do research before you subject your body to anything. Belladonna is natural and effective at controlling a fever but in slightly larger amounts it can kill you!

And when you do research do not just look at the positive outcomes! Doing research does mean you type it into google and read the first few articles.

CS has positive health benefits in that it can't prevent and clear up ailments.. However it does it at a huge cost. So years down the road you keep telling yourself that because you used distilled water that nothing will happen to you.. I am sorry sweetie but this is laughable as your body contains all the minerals you are distilling out if the water so they are still present and metabolize the yes nano particles of silver in the same way as if you made it with regular old water.

I am as natural as they come with my food, healthcare and supplements but would never think to use CS as its a stop gap rather then going to the root if why something it happening and fix it thus stopping or lessoning the illnesses you or a cat are getting.

Because I have a side certification in homeopathy I belong to an association that includes about 20 Naturopaths and we have discussed this at length.. They all (and when does that happen) agree that suggesting this therapy would be the same as an allopathic doctor recommending poison as a therapy. They in good conscious would never do it.

Think twice ladies would use it or are considering it. Understand some basic biology and chemistry.

Thanks I try :)

Osmosis - common biological process you learn in school.  If you are gonna learn something in biology class, that's usually it. LOL!
