They utilized the preservative qualities in silver and used it in all of their liquids to preserve freshness. The Egyptians used colloidal silver in making bandages to fight infections. The Druids used colloidal silver to disinfect their drinking water. Also, it was observed that royal families who used silver plates, utensils, and cookware were getting minute amounts of silver on a daily basis. These royal families tended to live long and healthy lives (much more than the average person who did not have the privilege of eating all of his meals with a touch of silver).
Much later in history, when the settlers were trekking across America, they utilized silver coins to preserve their drinking water and milk (the agitation of the coins during travel produced colloidal silver). These coins were placed in a flask and drastically prolonged spoilage and the growth of bacteria. Then, in the 20th century, colloidal silver was used extensively by all doctors until penicillin was discovered. Many doctors used silver-laced bandages to fight off infections. Eventually, silver nitrate was developed to clean out wounds. However, it was later found that silver nitrate does not have the good qualities that colloidal silver has on tissue.
In the 1970s, Dr. Harry Margraf and Carl Moyer received a grant to find better treatment of burn victims. They researched this extensively and found colloidal silver to be an excellent topical treatment for burn victims. It can be applied in large quantities, is completely non-toxic, and was found to cause little discomfort in the burn victims.
In 1978, Jim Powell conducted research for Science Digest that illustrated the bacterial and viral fighting power of colloidal silver . One of the facts that Jim Powell pointed out is that, unlike antibiotics, in the body virus fails to develop resistance viral strains to colloidal silver. An antibiotic can fight ten to twelve infections while silver can fight hundreds.
Because antibiotics were grossly over-used throughout the twentieth century, their effectiveness is diminishing rapidly. Over time, everyone’s body develops resistances to these helpful prescriptions. Unfortunately, this leaves doctors scrambling.
As a result, there has been a resurgence of medical interest in colloidal silver as an alternative to antibiotics. This inspired NASA’s interest in the unique substance. They began using silver to preserve and purify water as well as fighting infections.
Today, many hospitals have installed water purifying systems that use colloidal silver as their primary pathogen-fighting ingredient.
Doctor Robert Beck of Upstate Medical Center of New York conducted extensive research on colloidal silver. He studied the ways in which the silver attacks the pathogens and the way in which the virus or bacteria is destroyed. He found that silver water stimulated growth of various tissues in wounds and eliminated dead tissues.
To see the profound effects of colloidal silver, one only has to travel as far as the computer. There are countless testimonials from unpaid people praising silver water’s healing ability. People with ailments from acne to cancer have left testimonies on the web that they found relief in the healing powers of colloidal silver.
