Silver has been used for its anti-microbial properties since the times of ancient Egypt. These properties are also now well established scientifically using modern methods. The activity of silver partly depends of the form used. The 2 forms present in the colloidal silver for the health market are ionic sliver and non-ionic colloidal silver. Ionic silver (AG+) is positively charged and it works by blocking an enzyme involved in bacterial respiration. It also forms relatively insoluble ionic colloids with other ions such as chloride (present in saliva and stomach acids). More tends to form in less pure preparations.
Non-ionic silver colloid (AG0) is the true colloidal silver. It works by activating oxygen present in the tissues of the body against harmful microbes, thus allowing the immune system to gain the upper hand. It is the more desirable of the two as it acts against more than just bacteria. The above mechanism allows silver to be used to control bacterial overgrowth in some water purifiers (in the form of silver coated silica, not ionic silver). Each non-ionic colloidal silver particle may have a surface charge associated with it, but it is not ionic. The distinction between these two forms is necessary as their actions are quite different. Product names like "ionic colloidal silver" indicates that confusion exists.
Purity is very important with colloidal silver. Impurities allow the colloid to aggregate into larger particles that have significantly lower activities. Colloidal silver possess a wide range of properties. All actions of colloidal silver are related to the activation of oxygen present by the silver colloid particles. Applied topically, colloidal silver inhibits a full range of antimicrobial activity, including bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses. Within the body colloidal silver has a slightly reduced activity than applied topically, however the activity is significant enough to inhibit the fore mentioned. Colloidal silver is used as an antitoxin, relating to the mechanism of promoting detoxification through the liver and the silver particles ability to absorb toxins and wastes. Ideal for all illnesses relating to infection whether internal or external, and to support detoxification.

Colloidal silver has been reported to be an effective sting free antiseptic, for both internal and external use. It safely inactivates the germs associated with many types of infection and disease. It also stimulates healing for both internal and external use and reduces the interference from germs on the natural healing process. Scientists investigating the historical value of colloidal silver have rediscovered that it acts efficiently against bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites - germs that are collectively known as microbes.
The antimicrobial action of colloidal silver and silver compounds has been known for centuries and was confirmed scientifically as early as 1893. As far back as 1914, reputable medicinal journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet also published research that further proved that colloidal silver was an effective antimicrobial agent. Alfred Searle, the founder of the pharmaceutical conglomerate of the same name wrote in his book, The use of colloids in Health and Disease, applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results.
It has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to parasites, without toxic action on its host. Around this time, colloidal silver was considered to be an invaluable medicine although it was prohibitively expensive and it fell out of favour, when the cheaper and more concentrated chemical antibiotics were discovered. Over 50 years later, Dr Carl Moyer, chairman of the department of surgery, Washington University, Missouri, and their chief biochemist Dr Margraf, discovered that colloidal silver is a useful adjunct to the treatment of burns. In the 1980's, biomedical researcher Robert Becker MD discovered that colloidal silver profoundly stimulates healing in skin and other soft tissues in a way unlike any known natural process. As well as this it has been shown to kill the most stubborn infections of all kinds. He concluded that What we have done is to rediscover the fact that silver killed bacteria, which had been known for centuries.
The exact mechanism for the activity of colloidal silver are yet to be fully explained. However, one very likely mechanism contributing to its action is based on the fact that colloidal silver activates oxygen in the air and body tissues. This activated oxygen is capable of inactivating or damaging microbes without affecting normal body cells. This is because human cells have very efficient antioxidant systems that strongly protect against oxygen causing damage. By contrast, most microbes have poor antioxidant system's and are much more easily damaged or are killed.
An identical action is responsible for the antibacterial action of silver coated silica used in some drinking water filters to control microbial growth. Quite importantly, this mechanism spares the friendly bacteria that are needed to maintain a healthy colon and bowel. This is simply because there are very low levels of oxygen in these parts of the body. At higher doses of colloidal silver, oxygen activation in many cases will improve the rate of healing. This principle is similarly demonstrated in hyper baric oxygen treatment, where increased levels of activated oxygen also exists.
Colloidal silver activity will, in part, be dependant on the availability of oxygen (oxygen-independent mechanisms may also be operating). Used on the skin, it will kill many microbes because there is lots of oxygen so colloidal silver has a more gentle inhibiting effect on microbes. Thus it will help your natural immune system to reduce the severity and extend of infection, restore balance after an infection, or may help to prevent one from occurring altogether.
So What can you use Colloidal silver for? As an immune system supporter, Colloidal silver supports the immune system by gently inhibiting the growth of microbes. This frees up more immune system resources to aid in the fighting or suppression of infection. The immune system still does most of the work, which is the way nature intended it to be. Use for combat or to help with the prevention of viruses, colds, fever, stomach upsets, tonsillitis, flu etc. Colloidal silver will aid the immune system in virtually every microbial infection.
Remember, colloidal silver is not a miracle cure all, it is an aid for healing, health recovery and maintenance. Improved Healing and skin. Colloidal silver regularly applied to affected skin and taken internally has frequently been observed to improve healing and reduce scarring from wounds and burns. Use for scrapes and grazes, burn, sunburn, some types of ulcer, ear/nose/throat/sinus (providing you can access them) acne, some types of dermatitis, thrush, nappy rash, boils etc.
Detoxification. Detoxification improves the immune system and promotes overall well being. One of the main pathways for the natural detoxification of wastes and toxins in the body is through oxidation. A large proportion of this work is done by the liver and by the white blood cells which help keep the blood clean. The demands from modern living often means as increased toxic load and less efficient body function. This allows a build up to occur. To a small degree, oxygen activated by colloidal silver can aid the liver and white blood cells to process wastes and toxins more quickly. This will stimulate the mobilisation of stored waste, which will then be processed and removed. The cycle will continue until a new and more healthy equilibrium is reached. It is thus acting as a catalyst for improving self detoxification. As such, a healing/detox reaction may occasionally be observed.
Balancing. On a subtle level, colloidal silver is excellent for the balancing of yin and yang tendencies to improve general health and well being and to reduce inflammation and fever on an energetic level.
