What is the ‘Best colloidal silver ppm’?
The answer is as diverse as the Universe.
If you are using colloidal silver as a disinfectant for a new-born infant child’s eyes at birth you would want the PPM to be strong enough to kill on contact any pathogen of communicable disease.
If you were going to use colloidal silver on an open wound caused by a mouth full of dangerous lethal bacteria such as a grizzly bear or Komodo dragon it would want as high of PPM as commercially available.
If you were fighting a cold or supporting your immune system against school born sicknesses, you might want a lesser PPM.
If you were trying to combat the flu or prevent a pandemic affliction to invade your body, you might us a colloidal silver with a higher PPM.
The answer is the same as: ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.’
The percent of PPM of silver in colloidal silver being used is determined by the purpose of the use and the intention of the user. Colloidal Silver choices.
Although colloidal silver may be advertised as ‘one concentration of PPM fits all’ it is far from the truth.
Prior to the invention of penicillin, colloidal silver was a prescription.
The doctor would prescribe different PPMs for the different medical applications that he was trying to treat. In 1938 colloidal silver became an over-the-counter, ‘OTC’ supplement.
Penicillin was the star antibiotic for over 80 years. Due to patients not finishing their prescriptions and doctors over prescribing penicillin, the bacteria have built up an immunity to penicillin creating pathogens called Superbugs that no known prescription will control.
Colloidal silver, in almost 150 years, has not allowed any of the known 650 pathogens to build an immunity to colloidal silver. The reason is simple, colloidal silver kills these pathogens in 4 minutes, in vitro, never allowing any to mutate. Virus mutate in 17 days, so the flu shot that was created 3 years ago for your shot today, will not prevent you from getting the current mutated strain of the influenza.
All colloidal silver should be meted by complying with the suggested use on the label.
Do any doctors advocate the use of colloidal silver?
Dr. Mercola, Dr OZ, Dr. Gerry Lemole, (Dr Oz’s father-in-law) Cardiologist,
Dr. Loren Martin, professor emeritus, medical physiology, OSU
Dr. Josh Axe DC, Dr. Robert C. Beck, D.Sc., and Dr. Bruce West, DC have made colloidal silver recommendations, used or promote colloidal silver.
Dr. Lauren Martin, professor emeritus, physiologist, OSU, worked with colloidal silver 1100 PPM and the West Nile Virus. As a result of his studies a nebulizer to dispense colloidal silver, was developed for a stable of quarantined race horses on a track in Florida. Lama and horses returned to good health.
How many ppm colloidal silver is safe?
Home-made colloidal silver (clear), using a 9 volt battery, rarely exceeds 5 PPM, and is safe if made with distilled water. NO TAP WATER, that may have chlorine in it creating a chloride chemical that may be harmful.
High voltage colloidal silver made with +/- 200 volts of electricity rarely exceeds 20 PPM and yellow color can only be seen using scientific equipment to determine color.
30 PPM, 500 PPM, and 1100 PPM colloidal silver is the oldest, most studied and tested colloidal silver ranges in color from light yellow to dark brown. All Colloidal Silver PPM in these ranges are effective and safe. All of these PPMs have been used extensively in the USA since 1995. Only colloidal silver 1100 PPM has a history of use dating from the late 1890s to the present. Any colloidal silver over 1100 PPM is considered manufactured for industrial use only.
Colloidal Silver is safe and NON_TOXIC according to testimony of leading Texas toxicologist.
HOWEVER, ALL SILVER PPMs CAN CAUSE a condition called argyria There has been 6 cases recorded of argyria, (skin turning blue), since the turn of the century. This rare condition has been caused by; homemade colloidal silver, consuming large quantities of colloidal silver, wrong prescription and consuming silver nitrate. This very rare condition was only caused by over use and/or not adhering to the suggested use on the label. Even baby aspirin, abused, can cause serious health problems.
It is claimed that some colloidal silver is manufactured in particles so small that the blue skin condition won’t appear if you use the acclaimed silver. This statement is false. The blue skin condition is an accumulation of silver particles under the skin usually starting in the face. If you misuse the ‘suggested use’ you run the risk of silver particle accumulation.
Does colloidal silver particle size matter?
Yes, size matters. Colloidal silver particles need to be small enough to penetrate the cell wall of a single virus cell. If colloidal silver has the ability do that it then it has the ability by osmosis to pass through your skin on your hands into your bloodstream. Consequentially the colloidal silver with particles small enough to penetrate a virus cell wall can go from your stomach directly into your bloodstream if it ever gets that far before assimilation. If the product truly is colloidal, it has the systemic ability to be absorbed into your system.
The marketing hype of ions and nano and true and rub-a-dub silver are just marketing ploys. All colloidal silver has silver ions, some less than others. They all work in the application of PPM vs task to help…
What is ppm in colloidal silver?
PPM is “parts per million”. The key here is “PARTS”. Colloidal Silver strength is determined by how many solid ‘parts’ of silver in a million parts of water. Notice that there is NO reference to size in this definition. The reason is, we are talking about solid matter suspended in a liquid. So, if you have 1100 parts of silver matter then you would have them suspended in 998,900 parts of water. Hence the strength would be 1100 PPM colloidal silver.
What color should colloidal silver be?
There is no known method of altering matter (in this case silver) so small that the color in solution cannot be measured by a spectrophotometer. However, there are ways of putting so little of the matter in a solution that it appears colorless but to the spectrophotometer the color is still identified.
Many marketers advertise ‘their colloidal silver’, “as clear as water”…after all it may just be “the water,” here is the proof: When light is scattered by particles in a colloid or in a liquid suspension, the color denotes density of particle presence, the darker the solution, the more particles are present. Consequentially, the more particles, (PPMs), the darker the colloidal silver will be, ranging from a pale yellow to a dark brown. Simply put, anytime you place silver, gold or any other element in a liquid solution, making the particles as small as possible, the more particles you put in the darker the color becomes. The science is eloquently acknowledged the world over, as light is scattered by solid particles while it tries to pass through the solution, the light reflects colors. (see Tyndall effect)
ALL colloidal silver ranges in color from very light yellow to gray, to dark brown.
Can you use colloidal silver in the eyes? Yes, hospitals have used silver in infants eyes at birth to prevent the child from contracting venereal diseases. Burn centers also use silver baths to control infection on burn victims.
What all does colloidal silver cure? Colloidal silver has been tested against 650 pathogens such as bacteria, virus, fungus including Staph, MRSA and a host of similar diseases. The results showed the these pathogens died within 4 minutes, in vitro. The internet is full of testimonials of colloidal silver uses. An easy clue would be answered by these questions, is it a bacteria, is it a virus, is it a fungus? If it is, colloidal silver will kill it.
