What Researchers Say -- Nano Silver
Use of Silver in India for health
Use of Silver for health is nothing new for Indians.
As per customary practices, it has been observed that Ayurveda uses of natural metals for their healing characteristics. In Ayurveda, silver has been used in the form of Bhasma (calcined formulation), called Rajat Bhasma, for 5000 years. Ayurvedic medicine uses silver in small amounts as a tonic and elixir. It was and is used to treat neurological disorders, respiratory tract disorders, muscular dystrophy (progressive weakening of muscles), infertility, urinary tract disorders and diabetes.
It has been a common practice in India to put silver foil in “Murabbas”, “Chyawanprash” and medicines even today. Sweets, paan and digestive is covered with silver foil. Sweets covered with silver usually have much longer shelf life. In Ayurveda, silver charged water has been recommended for many ailments. In our temples and temple at home, we use silver utensils, especially for keeping “Charnamrat”. We had a tradition of storing water at home in silver utensils. Our kings and affluent people have history of using silver utensils.
All this just shows the importance given to Silver in our culture.
Silver in the cuisine was also known to older civilizations like Greeks, Roman, Chinese and Egyptians. In ancient times it was a practice with the Kings and affluent to use Silver utensils and cutlery to serve, eat food, to store and drink water from silver containers. For preventing the milk from getting spoiled, it was a common practice to keep silver coin in it.
Looking at these customary practices, there must be some merit in this metal.
History of Use of Silver as medicine in U.S.
Colloidal Silver was in common use in America from the late 1800s until 1938. It was prescribed for a great variety of diseases and infections. Colloidal Silver was used for just about every aliment as there were no antibiotics available.
In the late 1800's Western scientists were able to prove what had been known in Eastern medicine for literally thousands of years . . . that silver was a proven germ fighter! By the early 1900's the antibacterial colloidal silver became the choice of medical practitioners. It proved to be enormously effective against infectious organisms and extremely safe to use, without the negative side-effects associated with drugs.
Founder of world wide pharmaceutical company Alfred Searle writes in “Colloids In Biology and Medicine”, in year 1919 that “Applying Colloidal silver to large number of Human subjects has been done to large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration, orally or hypodermically (injected under the skin) it has the advantage of being fatal to parasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable, it protects rabbits from 10 times the lethal dose of Tetanus or Diphtheria toxin.”
The use of silver as a medicine was widespread until World War II. As the pharmaceutical industry developed, it caused colloidal research to be set aside in favor of fast working and financially lucrative drugs and antibiotics became the standard treatment for infections.
Colloidal silver-A Germ fighter
As per the various researchers Silver is best Germ fighter and kills most of the pathogens including bacteria, virus, mold, candida etc. without harming us. Some of the researchers are quoted below:
Jim Powell reported in an article, “Our Mightiest Germ Fighter”, published in Science Digest (March 1978, pp.59-60):
“Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modem medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. What’s more, resistant strains fail to develop when using silver. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic.”
Fortunately, silver’s powerful infection-fighting qualities are finally gaining the attention of many top medical researchers and practitioners. For example, as
Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D. board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has recently stated:
"Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science - natural silver.
I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent. ”
"Colloidal silver just might be the next germ-fighting wonder drug. And not just for the serious threats making headlines: It's also effective against bacterial infections like strep throat, viruses like the flu, and fungal infections like Candida. No matter how much a germ mutates, it can't change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver. And in the process, the silver doesn't harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do."
-- Dr. Jonathan Wright, MD
"Recent studies performed at the UCLA School of Medicine Center for Health Sciences confirmed that colloidal silver kills harmful bacterial, viral, and fungal organisms just minutes after contact."
-Journal of Longevity - Vol.4 / No. 10
Dr. Henry Crooks (Use of Colloids in Health-Disease) found that silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely nontoxic. From his bacteriological experiments with silver he concluded, "I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes with colloidal silver"
Dr. Henry Crooks (Use of Colloids in Health Diseases)
"It killed not only the HIV virus, but every virus that was tested in the lab." U.C.L.A. Medical Center
"Colloidal Silver will prove to be one of the greatest discoveries in preventive, natural health care of all time." – Canty & Baranowski
"What we have done was rediscover the fact that silver killed bacteria, a fact which had actually been known for centuries...All of the organisms we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion, including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics...In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent."
-- The Body Electric, Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D.
Silver – Aids our immune system
Silver’s ability to aid the immune has been system has been documented for more than 100 years. Many researchers hold the view that Silver is also needed by the body as other minerals. It is important for proper functioning of our immune system and increases white blood cells and red blood cells. Lack of silver may lead to compromised immune system. Some of the researcher’s finding are as follows.
"Silver compounds have been used as medicine since the late 1800’s and have been used as a treatment against infections by hundreds of thousands of individuals in the United States. Silver is a natural mineral in the same class as zinc, chromium, cobalt, copper, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, and vanadium which are important for health maintenance.
-- Dr. Kent Holtorf, Holtorf Medical Group, "Safety and Efficacy of Intravenous Oligodynamic Silver”
“Silver deficiency was correlated with increased illness… silver deficiency negatively impacts the immune system. ….Silver does more than kill disease causing organisms, silver causes major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and even elderly patients notice more rapid healing.
Dr. Robert Becker, M. D. Syracuse University
“Silver’s ability to aid the immune system has been well documented for more than 100 years. For example, in 1909, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that electrically generated silver ions increased white blood cell production. ………., white blood cells are critical factors in human immunity, aiding the body in the destruction of cancer cells, viruses, bacteria, and other invaders.”
The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual Barwick, Steve, Life & Health Research Group, LLC (Quoted from https://www.scribd.com/document/117417177/Colloidal-Silver-Secrets )
in 1909, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that electrically generated silver ions increased white blood cell production. As we noted earlier. ….. White blood cells are critical factors in human immunity, aiding the body in the destruction of cancer cells, viruses, bacteria, and other invaders. What's more, while white blood cells are the defenders of the human body, red blood cells carry life-giving oxygen to all tissues and organs. So silver apparently aids in both immune defense and in the support of life itself, by boosting both our body’s red and white blood cells counts.
And in the1980's researchers Berger, Marino and Spadaro confirmed that electrically generated silver ions boost human blood cell production. These findings lead to the obvious conclusion that while low white blood cell counts open the door to serious immune system risks, and low red blood cells lead to oxygen starvation of the body’s tissues and organs, electrically generated silver ions may help successfully counter these risks by stimulating both white and red blood cell production."

Colloidal silver-Safety aspects
“The silver doesn't harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do."
-- Dr. Jonathan Wright, MD
In "Colloidal Silver", a booklet produced by the Association for Colloidal Research, it is reported that: "Medical Journal Reports and documented studies spanning 100 years indicate no known side effects from oral or IV administration of properly manufactured Colloidal Silver in animal or human testing. There has never been a reported reaction with Colloidal Silver to any prescription medication.”
Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D. Director, Life Sciences Division John Hopkins University The Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver;” it is therefore considered harmless in any concentration. However all of the silver salts are identified as toxic, although the only adverse effect noted is Argyria. Therefore the concern is with silver salts not Colloidal Silver”.
Colloidal Silver a closer look: By Peter A. Lindemann
"Silver is one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is for all practical purposes non-toxic. Silver has been proven to be effective against hundreds of infectious conditions. It has tremendous anti-microbial power; the history of safe and successful colloidal silver use is extensive, and the number of current health professionals and individuals that successfully utilize colloidal silver to reduce the length and severity of infectious disorders is growing exponentially."
Zane Baranowski, CN
“Colloidal Preparations of Silver in Pharmacy,” British Medical Journal, February 1923: “Pure Silver is entirely non-irritant. In tests at very high concentrations, it has been shown repeatedly that the rapidly exerted disinfectant action is of considerable therapeutic value.” (ref The only answer to cancer by Leonard Coldwell, Chapter 19)
"Use of Colloids in Health and Disease." Colloidal silver has proven particularly effective in cases of intestinal troubles. Dr. Henry Crooks found that "silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. Rather than in a chemical compound, the silver in the colloidal state may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with correspondingly better results. All virus, fungus, bacterium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, and other pathogenic organisms are killed in three or four minutes upon contact. There are no side effects whatsoever from the highest concentrations."
A closer look at Colloidal Silver By Peter A. Lindemann,
"Common substances like table salt and aspirin are harmless with normal use, but excessive intake can become toxic and even life-threatening. With normal responsible usage, silver supplements are entirely harmless to humans."
-- Jeffrey Blumer, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Center for Drug Research, former director of the Greater Cleveland Poison Control Center
A recent paper by Das et al. provides the remarkable datum that some 275,000 kgs of edible silver foil are consumed every year (in food) in India. No known adverse health effects have ever been recorded.

How does Colloidal Silver work
Colloidal Silver has no known negative side effects. It provides the catalyst which disables the enzyme that all one-celled invaders use for their oxygen metabolism.
In effect, Colloidal Silver 'strangles' over 650 disease-creating bacteria, fungi (including yeasts), viruses, and parasites by cutting off their oxygen supply. Because these micro-organisms are suffocated, rather than poisoned, resistant strains fail to develop (the germs cannot mutate and develop), keeping your body protected and healthy throughout the years.
Yet Colloidal Silver is of no harm to human enzymes or any part of the human body chemistry. It kills all disease-causing organisms, in six minutes or less, upon contact. The body does not develop a tolerance to Colloidal Silver and sufficient amounts of this substance in your body is equivalent to a superior second immune system!
Certain bacteria are essential to healthy body function. Several researchers claim Colloidal Silver only attacks the unfriendly pathogens and will not harm the friendly ones, but one must wonder how it can possibly differentiate. The explanation is that the friendly bacteria are aerobic, while unfriendly bacteria are anaerobic. Silver does not attack bacteria directly, but rather decomposes certain enzymes the anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeast, and molds require. The silver acts as a catalyst and is not consumed in the process. It is probable that this indirect action is also the reason bacteria cannot develop a resistance to silver, as they do to antibiotics.
Use of Silver by Industry
NASA uses a silver system to purify water on space shuttle missions.
In Health Consciousness, Vol. 15, No. 4, Pg. 5 we read: "In the former Soviet Union, silver is used to sterilize recycled water aboard space shuttles
Silver is used in all major burn centers throughout the United States.
Internationally, many airlines use silver water filters to guarantee passenger safety against water-borne diseases such as dysentery.
The Swiss government has approved use of such silver water filters in homes and offices. In the U.S some city municipalities use silver in the treatment of sewage.
Silver works so well in purifying water that it is sometimes used to purify swimming pool water. It does not sting the eyes as chlorine does, and it does kill mosquito larva.
The only answer to cancer by Dr. Leonard Coldwell, chapter 19
Why not much has been heard about Nano Silver
Colloidal Silver cannot be patented. The Food and Drug Administration (in U.S.) has classified Colloidal Silver as a pre-1938 drug, which makes it exempt from current patent laws. If a product cannot be patented and a monopoly held on it in the marketplace, it cannot demand a high price. Therefore, Colloidal Silver is worthless to the pharmaceutical companies.
Anahata Health Clinic, Brighton, U. K.
With the advent of the penicillin and antibiotics, the focus of the pharma industry shifted toward antibiotics as they were easy to mass produce and also could be patented. However now, it is more and more understood that use of antibiotics has led to higher resistance in bacteria’s and they have become drug resistant. Also the antibiotics do not work against virus, fungus etc. Silver being a natural mineral does not create higher resistant microorganism and simply kills bacteria, virus, molds etc., in a small amount of time.
For this reason it is coming in focus once again.
Antibiotics vs Natural antibiotic Nano silver
Bacteria have a tremendous ability to adapt to substances. They can and do mutate to overcome antibiotics. When the antibiotics destroy the bacteria which are susceptible to them, they can clear the way for resistant bacteria to move in uninhibited. Still another problem that has plagued the medical profession from the beginning with modern antibiotics has been that beneficial bacteria and organisms play various important, natural functions in the body. Antibiotics often play havoc with some of the friendly organisms, producing long lasting side effects that may be difficult to correct. One reason that the antibiotics have been so popular in the medical field is due to the fact that they can be patented.
Anahata Health Clinic, Brighton, U. K.
Silver, on the other hand, is not patentable and there are no huge profits in it, so it is not worth heavy promotion. The high-priced products run over the low cost products, simply because of profitability. All of this is happening at the same time that disease bacteria are developing immunity to antibiotics all over the world.
Anahata Health Clinic, Brighton, U. K.
How Nano Silver Water is used
Colloidal silver can be used orally or topically for humans, and even pets. It is recommended that the each dose be held in the mouth before swallowing. This allows the silver ions and particles to be absorbed through the skin beneath the tongue.
Topically, it’s used by spraying it onto cuts, burns, skin infections, and acne. It’s even used as an eye wash, eye drops, as nose drops, or as ear-drops. It is safe and effective against infections.
Preventive and curative use of Colloidal Silver includes nebulizing (use 5ml with nebulizer available in market), to get the Colloidal Silver into your lungs and from there into your blood stream to strengthen your immune system. It helps in clearing up the lungs of any infections. Gargling with Colloidal Silver creates a barrier to infections entering your body from mouth and throat.
Colloidal silver is very effective and drinking a small quantity (about 30 ml-50 ml) every day helps in the improvement of immune system. Accordingly it helps to heal the body from effect of harmful micro-organisms. In case of bacterial / viral or fungal problems, it can be taken 2 to 3 times a day, however increase should be gradual.
“In cases of illness, natural health practitioners have often recommended taking double or triple the "nutritional amount" for 30 to 45 days, then dropping down to a smaller maintenance dose. Amounts from 1 - 32 ounces (30 ml to about 1liter) per day have reportedly been used in acute conditions.”

Colloidal Silver- Super Antibiotic Rediscovery
Nano Silver Water can be taken 2 to 3 times a day, however increase should be gradual. It is also important to consume several glasses of water each day when using Colloidal Silver in order to purge the body of toxins. However, if your body is extremely ill or toxic, do not be in a hurry to clear up everything at once. In case of any discomfort reduce the dose or give a gap to let the symptoms ease off. Given the opportunity, the body's natural ability to heal may amaze you.”
Being natural it is not known to have any side effects. As Indians we have consuming lot of silver as silver leaf (varka) and we have not seen people having any ill effects.
What are problems for which Nano Silver Water has been / can be used
"At the beginning of your health improvement efforts and several times each year, you can take a remedial course of colloidal silver for several weeks to keep down any undesirable microbes that have arisen in your body.
-- The Natural Way to Heal by Walter Last, pg 162
"Taken internally, colloidal silver can be used to fight infection. It has been shown to be effective against more that 650 disease-causing organisms, including Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria and the fungus Candida albicans." -- Prescription For Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A Balch CNC and James F Balch MD, pg 66
"In medical treatment, Colloidal Silver has been used for the eyes, nose, throat, skin, and everything in-between. It has been proven to promote rapid healing, with less scar tissue. Colloidal Silver solutions have been administered orally, topically, vaginally, rectally, intravenously, intramuscularly, as a gargle, as well as eye and ear drops. It can be atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs, therefore, safely used in a vaporizer or humidifier for respiratory infections………… The most widely accepted applications of Colloidal Silver are to ingest it or apply it directly to the skin. KEY APPLICATIONS: Infection, Immune Support, Wound Healing."
-- The Wonders of Colloidal Silver, by Dyhana L. Coburn and Patrick D. Dignan
“Since there is not enough room to list all the diseases against which Colloidal Silver has been used successfully, here is a tiny sample: acne, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, blood parasites, bubonic plague, burns (colloidal silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive), cancer, cholera, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, toxemia, trenchfoot, all forms of viruses, warts and stomach ulcer. In addition it also has veterinary uses, such as for canine parvo virus. You'll also find Colloidal Silver very handy in the garden since it can be used against bacterial, fungal and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted Colloidal Silver on the leaves, and add to soil wter.
It would appear highly unlikely that even germ warfare agents could survive an encounter with Colloidal Silver, since viruses like E Bola and Hanta, or even the dreaded "flesh-eating bacteria" are, in the end, merely hapless viruses and bacteria. To top it off, Colloidal Silver is non-toxic, making it safe for both children and adults, as well as pets. In short, anything bigger than a one-cell animal seems to like it.”
Perceptions magazine: May/ June 1996 issue- Mark Metcalf
The best defense against swine flu, or any flu, is the age old remedy of colloidal silver. The metal silver in its colloidal state can be safely consumed and used in the body. Bacteria and viruses cannot develop resistance to colloidal silver. Silver disables a vital enzyme and mechanism in all bacteria and pathogens so that they cannot survive. It is good to take a few teaspoons of colloidal silver daily to maintain health. More colloidal silver should be taken if experiencing illness."
-- Babu G. Ranganathan, Pravda
If you begin to experience any cold or flu-like symptoms, simply begin taking Colloidal Silver, initially tripling the dosage for three days, and then follow the normal regimen. Once you have used Colloidal Silver for a certain length of time, your body will become less susceptible to colds or influenza. If you develop any aches or sluggishness around 3 to 4 days after using Colloidal Silver, you are merely experience a cleansing reaction or "healing crisis" while the body is dislodging and expelling stored toxins through the various organs of elimination (including the pores of the skin). This condition is temporary, and its severity can be significantly reduced by ingesting additional quantities of purified water.

Pneumonia Human Respiratory System , Our modern drugs have become limited in their efficacy when it comes to fighting bronchitis or pneumonia. Typically, antibiotics are administered as the first line of defense, but when the pneumonia is viral, antibiotics won’t help in the least. The nice thing about colloidal silver is that it can help regardless of the pathogen.
Colloidal silver is a remarkable product to help fight against bronchitis and pneumonia when ingested internally, but an even more effective way to utilize it? Simply breathe it into your lungs. This way, the silver directly contacts the germs residing in the lungs, which are causing bronchitis or pneumonia. It’s basically the same thing as using respiratory support, and it works speedily, clearing it up within a couple of days. Now, the most effective method to get the colloidal silver into the lungs is to use a nebulizer. Generally, use one teaspoon approximately three times a day for 10 to 15 minutes. https://draxe.com/nutrition/colloidal-silver-benefits/
"Sinus symptoms… You can also use 1 or 2 drops of colloidal silver or liquid pine bark extract in each nostril once or twice a day… Eye or ear problems, including cataracts, glaucoma, redness, blurred vision, poor eyesight, ringing in the ears, earaches, soreness or swelling of the ears, eardrum damage, hardness of hearing, and (in rare cases) loss of hearing: Use 1 drop of colloidal silver topically (directly in the eye or ear) 3 times a day."
-- The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health by Robert O. Young, PhD, pg 178.
This liquefied form of silver is a powerful natural antibiotic that can help knock out an acute sinus infection, says John M. Sullivan, M.D., a physician in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Buy a bottle of colloidal silver, put some full-strength into a spray bottle, and use one or two squirts into your nose twice a day until the infection has been noticeably gone for 3 days."
-- Alternative Cures by Bill Gottlieb, pg 553
"Topically, it can be used to fight fungal infections of the skin or nails and to promote the healing of burns, wounds, cuts, rashes, and sunburn. It can be used on toothaches and mouth sores, as eye drops, and as a gargle to fight tooth decay and bad breath. It can also be used as sterilizer and can even be sprayed on air-conditioning filters and air ducts and vents to prevent germs from growing."
-- Prescription For Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A Balch CNC and James F Balch MD
"To treat ringworm, use a sterile pad and apply colloidal silver to the affected area. Hands and feet can also be soaked in this solution, a natural antibiotic that destroys some 650 different microorganisms."
-- Prescription For Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A Balch CNC and James F Balch MD, pg 388
"Colloidal silver, which can be found in any health food store, is a powerful antibiotic. It can cure conjunctivitis, or pink eye, as well as simple eye irritation…"Now a great remedy is available for itchy eyes that works like pure magic every time. It's colloidal silver drops. Just two drops in each eye can stop itching for a week or more."
