Colloidal Silver is a mineral in liquid form which can be used as a dietary supplement to effectively support your immune system. There are also many ways of using CS externally, i.e. for skin applications, for your pets, a sterile kitchen bench and more.
The “Incremental Daily Dosage” method (described below) has been used for decades by health professionals to determine how much colloidal silver to use in any specific instance, is an excellent way to use colloidal silver.
Colloidal Silver is perfectly suitable for short-term use, i.e. to assist the body during an acute need for immune support. The following doses have shown to be very effective:
Adults, as a powerful support: 30 – 40 ml, 3 times daily for 4 to 7 days. Children can take ½ the adult dose.
The recommended long-term use is suitable for chronic conditions that require immune assistance. Here the following doses have shown to be very effective:
Adults: 20 ml, 2 to 3 times daily until a difference is noticed, normally within 1 month. Children can take ½ the adult dose.
During the 1980s health professionals re-discovered this well-established method that had already been used in the past: They observed how the body reacted to the daily dosage of colloidal silver being given, and then adjusted the daily dosage accordingly in small increments.
If symptoms were not subsiding quickly enough, the dosage of colloidal silver would be increased. A starting dosage might be 20ml, per day. If no relief of symptoms is experienced at that dosage fairly quickly, then the dosage would be increased by 20ml, 2 to 3 times per day. This dosage level would be maintained until improvement was noticed within 4 to 7 days. For a powerful support: 30 to 40ml, up to 3 times per day for 4 to 7 days. For chronic support, 20 ml, 2 to 3 times daily for about a month works well. As an ongoing nutritional dose: 5 to 10ml once daily.
Swishing the colloidal silver in the mouth for about 30 seconds before swallowing fosters its absorption rate even more. Due to its ionic state, the colloidal silver will be transported via the blood to where it is needed in the body.
Colloidal silver detoxifies the body; this can be supported by making sure to drink plenty of pure water daily (needed for optimum functioning of the body anyway!).
Some Colloidal Silver experts recommend not to cleanse the body too quickly, because if too much colloidal silver is taken at once, it could result in the Herxheimer’s reaction (also referred to as the ‘Wellness Syndrome’), which occurs when there is too large of a die-off of infectious micro-organisms in a too short time span.
Symptoms of this reaction may be temporary headaches, muscle aches, nausea or diarrhea and are said to be caused by toxins being released by millions of dying pathogens. Ref.8) This occurrence may temporarily overwhelm the body’s ability to process the dead pathogens and the toxins they release. Author Max Crarer suggests reducing the dosage intake until the healing crisis symptoms have subsided while increasing your water intake. (Ref.9)
