Just Some Human Diseases Treated By Colloidal Silver

Introduction
 
It is well known that certain preparations of silver have germicidal properties. Silver was employed as a germicide and an antibiotic before modern antibiotics were developed. In previous centuries, users would shave silver particles into their drinking water, or submerge whole silver pieces in the drinking water, for the purpose of ingesting the silver by drinking the water. It seems likely that the practice of eating with silver utensils (i.e., silverware) resulted from a belief in the healthful properties of silver.

There may be many reasons why administering silver suspended in solution would enhance an individual’s health. It is possible that such a solution operates to inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other unwanted organisms, as well as eradicating such existing bacteria, viruses, and other organisms. It is also possible that a solution of silver can have an anti-inflammatory effect, sufficient to reduce symptoms of asthma.

The present invention describes the use of a silver composition in water to treat certain human ailments. An embodiment of the invention is a silver composition comprising small particles of silver which comprise an interior of metallic silver and an exterior of ionic silver which particles are suspended in water. A preferred embodiment of the invention is a silver composition comprising particles of silver wherein more than 50% of the number of particles are less than 0.015 micrometers in size and the particles are colloidally suspended in water.

Conclusion
 
The 10 ppm silver composition of the present invention was tested and found to be both bacteriostatic and bactericidal for all organisms tested. In other studies, this composition was compared to other commercially available colloidal silver products and found to have a superior activity to all other preparations tested (data not shown). The most interesting observation was the broad spectrum that the 10 ppm silver composition possesses. The antimicrobial activity that was observed was fairly constant independent of the particular organism tested. With the exception of Streptococcus faecalis and Streptococcus aureus (which had MIC values of 10 ppm and 5 ppm, respectively), MIC values ranged between 1.25 ppm and 2.5 ppm for both gram positive and gram negative organisms. The MBC values behaved similarly with values ranging from 1.25 ppm to 5 ppm with the exception of Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus gordonii, and Streptococcus faecalis (which all had MBC values of 10 ppm). The data suggest that 10 ppm silver embodiment of this invention exhibits an equal or broader spectrum of activity than any one antibiotic tested. Antibiotics generally have restricted antibacterial spectra limited to susceptible organisms, but as the data demonstrate, the silver composition of the present invention is equally effective against both gram positive and gram negative organisms. The data suggest that with the low toxicity associated with silver, in general, and the broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity of this silver composition, this preparation can be effectively used as an alternative to antibiotics.
