|Silver Lining ;)|
Colloidal silver is an inert suspension of silver in water. The documented use of silver for medical uses goes back as far as Hippocrates. Silver has been used on the battlefield for a disinfectant and treatment of some medical conditions. Before I go any further, I am not a medical professional, and I am not offering this as medical advice. By all means talk to your doctor if you have any concerns that require treatment. There is no single cure-all for everything in nature or pharmaceuticals. As with anything else, abuse or overuse of this solution can cause permanent problems. That being said, I do believe that silver can be used as part of a natural medicine cabinet. Silver has anti-bacterial properties as well as anti-microbial, including the antibiotic resistant strains. Colloidal silver also does not create resistant strains to any other treatment.
In my research on this subject I have learned that what we make is actually ionized silver. It is still safe to use, it just does not have as many silver particles in suspension as true colloidal silver. True colloidal silver would be very difficult to make at home and very expensive also.

Now on to the procedure.
Equipment: 1 - colored glass bottle to hold the finished product
1- quart jar filled with filtered or distilled water
1 - funnel for moving the finished product from the quart jar to colored glass jar neatly
2 - pieces of quality silver wire bent into a hook at one end
1 - cord with a plug and a ballast rated for 9V output
2 - alligator clips fastened to the ends of the cord, one to each wire
1 - timer set for 8 minutes
|Alligator clips to the silver pieces|
|You can see the silver particles coming |
off of the silver wire
|The black that comes off is entirely normal. It is the|
silver that didn't actually make it into the
|The particles from leaving it too long.|
* Abscesses or cold sores in the mouth - swish colloidal silver in your mouth for at least seven minutes, after which you can spit it out.
