Nanotechnology And Colloidal Silver

In the 19th Century colloidal silver emerged as a powerful germ fighter without negative side effects so became the first choice of many medical workers. It was extremely effectual against communicable organisms and very safe to use without any side effects as compared to those associated with drugs. As stated by Alfred Searle, founder of the pharmaceutical conglomerate that "applying Colloidal Silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. It protects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus or diphtheria toxin."

Colloidal Silver can be used for internal administration, orally or topically. The major advantage is to act quickly and of being lethal to parasites without any hazardous side effect to its host. At that time Colloidal Silver was very costly and hence couldn't be patented. Finally with newly developed powerful antibiotics, colloidal Silver took a back seat. After thirty years of the advent of antibiotics it was found that many types of disease causing pathogens had built immunity to their action. There are many reports on the new strains of 'Super Bugs' that cannot be killed by even the most powerful antibiotics.

 Due to the resistance of organisms to these drugs, there was the comeback of Colloidal Silver, which proved to be one of the cures in these hard times of huge health disaster. It was further stated that low levels of silver in the body is responsible for low immunity and sickness. This lead to vast research on silver and it was found that silver works on a wide spectrum of bacteria that too without any side effects or harm to the body cells. Even those organisms that were resistant to all known antibiotics were sensitive to silver ions.

An electromagnetic process draws sub- microscopic particles of silver (.00001 microns) from a bigger piece of pure silver into water. These particles are apprehended in suspension by the tiny electric charge on each atom. The size of the particle is in nano range and these minute particles of silver can simply infiltrate and travel all through the body. The colloidal silver should be manufactured by the Electro-colloidal process and must contain a number of superfine particles of silver that are no bigger than 0.005 - 0.0015 microns in diameter and the pH should be approximately 6.5. Colloidal Silver preparations contain 3 parts per million (ppm) silver to 20 ppm. It should contain no chemicals, proteins or artificial stabilizers.

Colloidal Silver is one of the most beneficial product of nanotechnology. It basically works as a catalyst that render an enzyme inoperative. One-celled bacteria, fungi and viruses for their metabolism use this enzyme. Generally with antibiotics, resistant strains of bacteria develop which then become ineffective of that antibiotic. However with colloidal silver no such strains are known to develop. Actually antibiotics are not able to kill any kind of virus and are effective against some forms of bacteria and fungi. Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 600-700 different disease-causing pathogens and no such pathogen remains alive in presence of very small amounts of colloidal silver.

An extensive research in nanotechnology is going on to find the effects of nanological silver that may be the future bullets to kill various deadly viruses. Studies have already started that have resulted in some successful experiments where silver nanoparticles have been able to kill what is known as the super bug - Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus. With various optimistic results, the nanosilver will now come under a neo-approach or as an alternate to medicines when it comes to combating previously deadly viruses such as the Tamiflu resistant avian flu. This will open new fields of using colloidal silver as an antibiotic for internal use while it is already used as a topical antibiotic in the medical industry for a long time.

In addition to killing disease-causing organisms, Silver also became the chief growth stimulator of injured tissues. The presence of the silver ion is helpful to grow worn out tissues, get rid of old or cancerous cells, and fuel growth in any other diseased or anomalous condition.

In addition to be used on human beings, colloidal silver is also effective on animals. It is useful in many veterinary cases such as in healing burns and various infections. It is also successful in treatment against the dreaded canine parvo virus.

Colloidal Silver is very useful and effective against bacterial, fungal, and viral attacks on plants. Only a simple spray of diluted Colloidal Silver on the leaves or the solution added to soil is very effective.

Various diseases in which Colloidal Silver has been used with positive results: allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, chronic fatigue, herpes, leukemia, plague, burns (Colloidal Silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive), cancer, cholera, colds and flu, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea, hay fever, leprosy, lupus, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, blood parasites, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, cancer of skin , staph infections, strep infections, acne, syphilis, toxemia, trenchfoot, all forms of viruses, stomach ulcers and warts.
