Colloidal silver and how it works.
True colloidal silver is formed by microscopic silver particles being suspended in, commonly, distilled water by a small electrical charge. It is available to buy from many natural health stores in liquid or spray form. Alternatively, it can be produced easily and cost effectively at home using a colloidal silver generator.
The microscopic colloidal particles are able to pass quickly through the digestive system and into the blood stream. Once a level of colloidal silver is established in the body, it has been shown to greatly strengthen the immune system, prevent infections and act as a powerful natural antibiotic.
If any single celled pathogen, such as a virus, fungus or bacterium, then tries to enter the same space occupied by the silver colloid particles, its oxygen metabolism enzyme quickly becomes disabled. The pathogen then suffocates and dies within minutes and may be safely removed from the body.
How colloidal silver benefits the liver
The liver is one of the most important organs in the human body. It secretes more than 4,000 enzymes, protects the body from infection and removes toxins from the blood stream which can then be exhumed from the body.
Good liver function is, therefore, vital to the general wellbeing of the body. Inflammation, or hepatitis, can lead to a weakened immune system, the onset of a number of diseases and numerous adverse effects on the functions of other organs in the body.
Colloidal silver has also been shown to kill bacteria and viruses that cause liver disease. Regular consumption, usually one teaspoon a day is recommended, can strengthen the body’s defenses and prevent infection. While in the event of the liver becoming infected, it is recommended that the dosage is increased to around 3 tablespoons a day until the infection is brought under control.
Colloidal silver and Hepatitis C
One of the leading causes of liver disease is the HCV or Hepatitis C virus. This virus causes inflammation of the liver, restricts proper liver function, and if left untreated can cause severe and permanent liver damage. Hepatitis in the liver can also lead to cirrhosis and is a one of the primary causes of liver cancer.
Current treatment of chronic hepatitis C infection consists of taking specialist anti viral medications peginterferon and ribavirin. However, these drugs have been shown to have strong adverse effects on the body, along with being prohibitively expensive for the patient.
Many natural healers are advocating the anti-viral properties of Silver colloidal as an alternative means to control the symptoms associated with Hepatitis C.
While there is still no known cure, and as yet have been no extensive medical trials on the use of colloidal silver in the treatment of hepatitis C, there is strong anecdotal evidence to show the viral count in chronic patients may be reduced dramatically by regular colloidal silver usage.
Many patients have experienced significant reductions in their viral count, and tell of being alleviated of symptoms and feeling better than they have done in years.
One researcher found that a 21 day treatment of ½ oz. colloidal silver, taken on the hour 8 times per day, along with proper nutrition, detoxifying efforts and abstinence from alcohol, can reduce viral loads from half a million viral particles to less than a hundred in as little as three weeks.
Although there is strong evidence to show colloidal silver is effective in combating liver disease, it should be noted that extensive drug testing has yet to be done. If you suspect hepatitis C infection, or any other form of liver disease, full medical testing should be carried out and specialist medical advice sought.
