February 19, 2016; by Briana McDonald; Natural Health Writer; (UtopiaSilver.com) Working the Order Desk at Utopia Silver supplements I get asked a lot of questions about using Colloidal Silver. Everything from “Can I use it as a mouthwash?” to “Can I give it to my cat?” and the notorious, almost asked daily, “Will this make me turn blue?” So I decided to write this short, sweet, and simplified version of our Layman’s guide. If you feel the need to explore this topic further, please follow this link. https://www.utopiasilver.com/laymansguide/ Otherwise, enjoy my rendition of Colloidal Silver Use For dummies.
First and foremost, no, you will not turn blue. The rare condition known as Argyria only occurs when Silver is stored in the tissues under the skin. Not just any silver, but silver proteins, mild silver protein, strong silver protein, silver chloride, and silver iodide. None of the previously stated is something we manufacture or sell. Our solution is only the mineral Silver and distilled water. It will go into your blood stream and tackle anything from the common cold to Ebola but it will not, I repeat not, store in the tissue under your skin.
Another common question I get is “How much should I take?” and “How Often?” If you are trying to treat something as serious as Hepatitis C or Cancer, please do not think the “recommended usage” on the bottle is an adequate amount to take. It would be the equivalent of licking an aspirin to treat a migraine. You would need therapeutic dosages and every person is different. There is no “one size fits all” option for using colloidal silver. Just to give an example, if I feel I’m starting to come down with something, I’ll take an ounce every couple of hours for a couple days. Then, I back off just taking an ounce in the morning for another couple of days until I feel 100% again. This will not work for everyone, you may need more or less depending on what your treating or if you’re just looking to boost your immune system overall. You will not have to worry about “overdosing” on Colloidal Silver, the most that could come from taking too much would be an upset stomach but let’s face it; you could get that from drinking too much coffee.
For the animal lovers out there, have no fear, silver is good for your pets too! In fact, our dog Bailey who was told would not live more than 6 weeks due to tumors that developed on his rectum is still alive and well 3 years later thanks to colloidal silver. You can put it in their drinking water, insert directly into their mouth with a syringe, or apply topically to any infected areas. In case you were thinking it I’m going to say it, no your dog (or cat, or lama) will not turn blue.
“Well how exactly does it work?” In a nutshell, the mineral silver kills one-celled organisms (germs), period. This is not opinion; it is simply fact. Colloidal silver kills germs; bacteria, virus, and fungi on contact, this is something that no one can credibly deny. “According to research by Beiersdorf the maker of Curad bandages and one of the world’s largest medical supply companies, ‘silver when brought into contact with germs inhibits their growth by deactivating their oxygen metabolism enzymes. In turn, this destroys the microbe’s cell membranes, stopping the replication of its DNA.’” “What is the difference between Colloidal Silver and Ionic Silver?” I personally use the Colloidal Silver for anything and everything, both topical and internal. But the only difference between the two is the ions have a harder time making it past the stomach acids and into the bloodstream so it’s more commonly used topically while the Colloidal Silver is used internally.
