Collodial Silver a Miracle Cure?
Silver, Valuable in your Pocket not in Your Body
Take a Chance with Collodial Silver
Just as anything else in life, there are pros and cons. I believe because everyone is a special individual with specific likes and dislikes and the fact that many people do not achieve the same results from all kinds of products on today's market, there is always going to be pros and cons. Some people will believe wholeheartedly in a product. Other people would not waste their money, on the same product.
With seasonal allergies in full bloom this fall and winter on our heels, many should think about how they can build up their immunity if they live with a low immunity, catching everything from colds, flu, pneumonia, bronchitis and the like. I am not pushing or selling any particular product, but often times I have wondered about Colloidal silver to help increase one's immunity.
Many consumers call silver amazing, yet others feel it sits at the pinnacle of the quackery ladder of useless products and does no good for the person getting the silver.
My grandson is four years old and has an amazing story to tell in his short life, which I will do in another article. At this time all I am going to say is that the amazing chiropractor who has been treating this wee one has done a magical cure for him. This doctor mentioned to my daughter to consider silver through the winter this year to help improve his diminished immunity issues. My daughter has given the kids a product known as Silver Shield with good outcomes. The good doctor mentioned that the Silver Shield brand is one of the purest of silvers and the best thus far (opinion) on the market today.
Since I have asthma and respiratory difficulties with the bronchitis, I am going seriously to consider starting to take silver. If it helps, it will be great. If after a reasonable time, I cannot see any changes I simply will quit taking it and know that I was one person it showed no effectiveness. If considering silver in the daily diet, buy the purest form available. Some consumers who believe in colloidal silver, attempt to compound it at home. The problem with this is it will have questionable purity levels. In addition, the strength of home prepared silver is difficult to dose.
Primary Traditional Doctors Shake Their Heads at the Effectiveness of Collodial silver
Colloidal silver for Infections and Inflammations
Colloidal silver is a mineral. Silver is one mineral that has no function in the human body and it is not considered as an essential mineral supplement. Most people follow the guidelines of the FDA to determine whether they feel a product is safe. Silver is one product in which the FDA does not consider it a safe option or as a matter fact effective. The FDA says its uses are unproven.
There are consumers who take Colloidal silver for many reasons, some of which are, yeast infections, Lyme disease, flu prevention, staph and strep infections, pneumonia, an array of skin problems, including shingles, sinusitis, tonsillitis, allergies, lupus, leukemia, diabetes, viruses, parasites, and any number of STD's, plus much more.
Colloidal silver is taken internally and topical skin conditions. Silver is excellent for burns. Any nurse knows this to be a fact that silver nitrate helps to cure skin issues and burns. In the start of the 1900s, before the discovery of antibiotics, Silver found its place in many homes to fight off infections with relative success.
The ground for using Colloidal silver is that it goes to kill many germs, when the silver binds to the proteins and destroys them.
There are few primary family doctors who support the healing claims of Colloidal silver; however, medical doctors and practitioners who practice alternative medicine expound the effects of silver on illness, disease processes and short-term infections and inflammations. Silver, believed to kill the bacteria, fungi and viruses that trigger infections and inflammations still find their way into many homes for this purpose.
Antibiotics-Miracles of Modern Medicine, with Some Side Effects
While antibiotics eliminate infections, antibiotics can cause some other troubles such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Antibiotics, when required for extended lengths of time can eat away at the normal intestinal flora of the intestine, thus the person develops diarrhea. If the diarrhea becomes severe enough, it can grow into a diarrhea condition known as C-Diff, a transmittal condition.
Some of the cons to taking colloidal silver over the long term are that the person's oral cavity, lips, skin and nails can take on a bluish-gray hue that will not go away. When people take on this noticeable blue hue to their body, the condition known as Argyria becomes pronounced.
My question is, if a mineral such as Colloidal silver shows repeatedly to increase one's immunity against infections in the first place, so that the person does not have to resort to medicine with side effects, is not this a better option towards health and wellness. It makes sense to me to take something such as silver to help support the body in their fight against illness. What harm can it do to try silver, while being aware that silver has one thing to watch for such as Argyria.
Then, as I noted in the beginning, there are pros and cons of every product on the marketplace today. Without product pros and cons, it would be a boring world. Each person has to make up their own mind about what works for them and what does not work, because no two people are alike in the way their body processes process vitamins, minerals, supplements, medicine and even foods in the body.
