I have used ionic and colloidal forms of silver for many years, however, it has never been a "First Choice" therapy - until now. The manufacturers and distributors of colloidal silver have been primarily targeted to consumers, not medical practitioners, and this has been one of my concerns.
Occasionally there will be an article that reminds the public of silver's safety, effectiveness for killing pathogens, and additional benefits, such as destroying cancer. However, silver is not completely safe, especially when it comes to making your own. One of the concerns with colloidal and ionic forms of silver is that the silver can come out of solution (usually water) and become more reactive with your body. Although the "blue man" scenario is rare, colloidal and ionic forms of silver can bind to nerves and organs in an unhealthy manner.
Fortunately, there is a form of silver that has been thoroughtly tested for its action against many types of bacteria (including MRSA), fungus, and small parasites. In addition, this new form of silver is bound to water in a unique way that will not separate, making it the safest form of therapeutic silver. This form is called a silver sol.
Not only is a silver sol molecule safe, it is more potent than colloidal, ionic, or cutlery forms of silver. The silver sol molecule works through a catalytic action - sounds cool, right? This means that instead of a silver ion giving up its free electron (to kill a pathogen) and becoming inactive, the electrons in a silver sol molecule work perpetually. It's like a tiny buzz saw for bugs.
Comprehensive Silver Sol research can be found via this link.
I buy my Silver Sol through the research-based nutritional supplement company Designs for Health, under the name Silvercillin. It is sold in a large 16oz bottle, a 4oz spray bottle, or a 4oz high strength gel which can be used on the skin for rashes, wound healing, or as a non-toxic hand sanitizer.
Pricing is as follows:
Silvercillin 16oz Liquid - $52
Silvercillin 4oz Spray - $20
Silvercillin 4oz gel, high potency - $40
Acnutrol Gel 3oz, for acne - $34
To order online follow this link to register. The form will ask for your practitioner's name and number: Tim Walsh 847-802-2245
If you would rather speak to a human, call 800-847-8302 and ask to open a patient account - you will have to give my name because Designs for Health only sells to, or via, licensed health care professionals.
The Silvercillin Gel is 15% off through the month of May, so tell the customer service representative you would like to use the code MAYSF22 - or type it into the promotion code area during online checkout.
If you are interested in placing an order of several items, call or email me directly and I will get you a better deal.
