Silver’s healing qualities
Silver has been used for healing purposes and for treating diseases as far back in recorded time as 4000 BC. Eastern Persia, Ancient Babylonian and Greek civilizations were fully aware of silver’s ability to disinfect. Members of the royalty were called Blue Bloods due to the silver content in their blood and the blueness of their skin. When eating, royalty used almost exclusively silver plates, bowls and utensils. Over time they consumed large particles of silver, which created a permanent discoloration of the skin. This condition is known today as Argyria. There is no danger of that occurring today as long as you are using properly prepared colloidal silver.
Colloidal silver was in common use until 1938 and it had proven itself to be useful against 650 infectious diseases but was costly to produce at that time. The FDA now classifies colloidal silver as a pre 1938 drug. A letter from the FDA dated Sept. 13, 1991, states, “these products may continue to be marketed as long as they are advertised and labeled for the same use as in 1938, and as long as they are manufactured in their original manner.” With the discovery of antibiotics, the use of colloidal silver declined in popularity even though colloidal silver had no side effects. We have used this product for years for bug bites, sunburn, open cuts and scratches. It has great healing properties for humans and it also benefits plants and soil from the formation of molds and fungi and harmful organisms.
The Internet is loaded with information about this product. One interesting item is the fact that silver was added to the fabric of NASA astronaut’s underwear. This also included shirts and clothing. It is a new type of anti-bacterial, water absorbent, odor eliminating clothing designed for space missions and seems to be working well.
