1. Colloidal silver electrodes
high quality silver electrodes, specially designed for the production of domestic colloidal silver.
2. Books on colloidal silver
Here are two books we recommend to deepen your knowledge and better understand
this great product that is colloidal silver:
- The reference book on the subject was written by Max Crarer: Everything You Need To Know About Colloidal Silver
- The second book is entitled: Colloidal Silver: The Natural Antibiotic written by Werner Kühni
3. What is colloidal silver?
Definition of a colloid: A colloid is a particle invisible to the naked eye that does not dissolve in a liquid, but remains in suspension. The colloidal state is frequent in the ecosystem, it is found in particular in plant and animal tissues. In humans, we find this state in the lymph, blood and cells of the body.
Colloidal silver consists of electrically charged silver nanoparticles suspended
in demineralised water.
Colloidal silver is also called ionic silver because most solutions are composed
of both silver and silver ions.
What are the properties of Silver?
Silver, by its nature, is able to attack most bacteria, viruses and parasites.
In the form of nanoparticles, silver has a multiplied efficiency. Its extremely fine particles allow a uniform distribution on the surface to heal.
Thanks to its exceptional anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, Silver can fight many diseases and infections. Unlike antibiotics, no germ resistance is known for Silver.
4. How to get Colloidal Silver?
There are several ways to get colloidal silver:
You can either buy it from a specialized producer or make it yourself.
- The easiest way is obviously to buy it directly from a specialized producer. Make absolutely sure that the product is certified and has a quality validated by independent laboratories.
- The other method is to make the product yourself. If you are curious and a little handyman, this process is easily achievable through detailed tutorials.
A) Buy your colloidal silver from a specialized producer.
Since the rediscovery of the benefits of money in the 2000s, many companies have seized the opportunity and now offer colloidal silver to the general public. As in any market, some companies are more serious than others, so it is essential to be well informed before finalizing your purchase.
One of the leading companies in the business is the Institut Katharos.
It is a French company based in Aix-en-Provence.
It produces and markets its own products directly meeting the draconian requirements of French and European legislation governing the para-pharmaceutical field. The production is certified by an independent laboratory.
We recommend this company for the quality of their products as well as for their commitments to their customers. Their products are available for sale on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2TWLj1o
Which PPM concentration to choose?
The quality of the colloidal silver is measured in "PPM". Colloidal Silver Flask
"PPM" means "Parts per Million", it is a unit of proportion. In the case of colloidal silver, a solution dosed at 40 ppm means that there are 40 milligrams of silver per liter of purified water.
Most manufacturers offer several types of concentration: 15, 25 or 40 ppm.
The purity of the solution is obviously a selection criterion. Your choice will depend on the type of pathology and the body to be treated (human, animals or plants). For humans, the most effective concentration is 40PPM.
The Institut Katharos is one of the only European producers to offer solutions with a concentration close to 40 PPM. Link to the study: https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/dffe9d_ab223275eed549a290158aeb51095a8e.pdf
B) Make colloidal silver at home
It is easy for individuals to make colloidal silver of good quality.
With a small budget (about fifty euros), a summary installation and a little motivation, it is possible to manufacture its own colloidal silver.
For this, you can help you many tutorials that can be found on the internet!
The manufacturing process for colloidal silver is still based on the same principle: two pure silver electrodes are immersed in high quality demineralised water. Then, to initiate the reaction, it is necessary to create an electric field which traverses the two electrodes through the water.
This electric current then releases the silver ions contained in the electrode, directly into the water, thus creating a solution of colloidal silver.
The necessary equipment:
1. The electrodes
Firstly the electrodes: they represent an essential element for a quality solution.
Make sure that the vendor's money is serious and traceable. At Lingot Swiss, all of our ingots are supplied with a certificate in accordance with Swiss legislation which guarantees the origin and traceability of the material.
The level of purity is also a key element, it must be at least 99.99%.
2. The water
Like the electrodes, the quality of the water chosen for your solution is fundamental.
Get supplies from professionals like pharmacies.
It must be bi-distilled, that is to say have undergone two successive distillations. In principle, it contains no impurity.
3. The control instrument
A conductivity meter is needed to measure the quality of the solution.
This tool will allow you to measure the total amount of ions, including minerals, salts, metals present in the solution. It will evaluate the concentration of micro-particles of silver in water.
4. A generator
Once you have the necessary elements together, you need two silver rods. These two electrodes must be connected to a power source. For this a charger for small electronic device is perfect. It is recommended to use a device with a voltage between 5 and 24V.
5. History of the use of silver in medicine
Silver in the form of colloid has been used in medicine since the end of the 19th century.
Before the invention of synthetic antibiotics (in the 1940s), silver was used to treat many diseases.
There are traces of the use of silver in medicine in Ancient history, in most civilizations around the world (Greek, Roman and Chinese Empires).
Silver was used to fight diseases, whether of viral, bacterial or fungal origin (fungi).
The Romans carried water and wine in silver containers for preservation and non-development of bacteria. The Macedonians, meanwhile, applied silver ingots on the scars of their soldiers to protect them and accelerate healing.
During the conquest of the west, Americans had a silver coin in the water containers to limit the growth of bacteria.
Historical examples are numerous and corroborate current scientific studies.
The uses of silver in our modern society
Although it is not that widely used compared to the beginning of the century, Silver still occupies an important place in modern medicine.
Silver is used in the treatment of burns and wounds. Its broad spectrum anti-bacterial properties act effectively on burns and wounds susceptible to infection. Nano-silver dressings are now used in most health centers. The surgical tools are coated with silver including catheters and probes.
In industrial applications, Silver is mainly used to filter and sanitize water.
Filters are designed for domestic and industrial use.
