May 26, 2017; by Briana McDonald (Silver Bulletin e-News Magazine) Summertime has to be one of my favorite times of year. Barbecue’s, family gatherings, mixed drinks, and lots of relaxing by the water. With summer and all of it’s glory comes a few side effects which could include hangovers, food coma, and sunburns if we aren’t careful. While we know that we should have all things in balance, sometimes we just have too much fun in the sun and get ridiculously burnt! Thankfully we can get relief from sunburn with Colloidal Silver and a few other natural remedies.
Healing Properties of Colloidal Silver
If you are unsure what Colloidal Silver is, it is an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial. It will kill any single cell organism on contact! It is also notoriously used to treat burn victims in hospitals because of it’s wonderful ability to stimulate healing of the tissue and reduce inflammation. It is also used as drops in the eyes of newborns to prevent any bacterial infection after birth. 1.
- Eye infections
- Gum Disease
- Upper Respiratory Infections
- Candida Overgrowth
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Bladder Infections
- Athletes Foot
Honestly the list could go on and on, because it kills any single cell organism on contact it can be used to treat ANYTHING.
There are two different forms of Silver. Colloidal Silver and Ionic Silver. Ionic Silver is generally used topically but does not work as effective internally. Colloidal Silver can be used for both topical and internal use. For this article’s purpose, we are going to focus on the healing benefits of Advanced Colloidal Silver since it can serve both functions. It’s also important to mention that Ionic silver is clear, while Colloidal Silver is a tea-like color, amber in tone. For a visual click here.
The color that you see is the light reflecting off of the silver particles that is suspended in the water. Seeing color is the indication you want in order to know without a doubt you have true colloidal silver.
When I say “topical” I mean; eyes, ears, nose, throat, anything on the skin or nails, and the lungs. Topically Colloidal Silver has been used for treating:
- ear infections
- tooth abscess
- gum disease
- upper respiratory infections
- sunburns or any burn for that matter of any degree
- skin lacerations
- toenail fungus
- open sores
- athletes foot
Internally Colloidal Silver can seek out and destroy viruses, bacteria, and fungus with it’s built in intelligence. A recent article explains the “physics” behind Colloidal Silver and why it is as great as we all say it is. Simply put, Silver has a positive charge which combines with living things in our bodies (that we don’t really want living in there) that, due to it’s lower oxygen levels has a negative charge. Due to the fact that healthy bacteria has a positive charge, the healthy flora and the silver repel each other so the Silver is only seeking out and destroying it’s nemesis; aka the viruses, yeast, parasites and bacterial overgrowth. 2.
So while it’s great to have around the summertime to treat those nasty sunburns we tend to get from time to time, it’s a must have for your household because it can take care of anything else that could come up for you or your loved ones.
Taking a couple teaspoons a day on an empty stomach can keep your immune system boosted and keep infections of any sort at bay while a higher, more therapeutic dose can knock out even the most stubborn of “bad guys” without the negative side effects you often see from mainstream antibiotics. (if you google side effects of antibiotics in google image you would cry at what could really happen from those things)
Colloidal Silver + Aloe Vera Gel = Light-speed Healing for Sunburns
We all know Aloe Vera Gel has been used for eons to treat sunburns, but when combined with the amazing skin rejuvenating capabilities of Colloidal Silver you’re looking at faster healing time, a reduction of swelling and inflammation that comes with the burn, and incredibly strong and healthy tissue once the burn heals.
I personally recommend investing in your own aloe Vera plant and breaking off a leaf, filleting it as you need it, and rubbing it onto the skin with the Colloidal Silver. You can purchase a pump spray cap for the Colloidal Silver so that it can be sprayed directly onto the skin.
So not only can you get relief from sunburn with Colloidal Silver, but you can use it to treat anything that could come your way! It is a must have staple for everyone’s home.
