Colloidal Silver & Digestion

Some of the easiest problems to heal with colloidal silver are of the stomach, the bladder, the kidneys, the liver and the intestinal tract. These are all areas where colloidal silver is the most effective since it is better able to survive the hydrochloric acid of the stomach and of the chloride environs of the body.

Stomach, bladder, and kidney issues generally respond reasonably well to smaller amounts (a few teaspoons or tablespoons) of colloidal silver than does the intestines, colon, and liver because of their function in the digestive system. These last three generally require a multiple ounces depending of course on the severity of the problem.

It is simply common sense; when there are systemic problems that are widespread in the body or if there are large numbers of microbes to deal with, it may require more colloidal silver to do the job. One cannot expect much results if trying to heal some issues with simply a teaspoon or two of colloidal silver, so don’t be afraid to use as much as you need for a short period of time.

It is important to remember that with a heavier usage of colloidal silver, especially for more than a few days or a week, one should take Acidophilus and broad spectrum pro-biotics such as Miracle Choice™ Probiotic 25 Billion an hour or so afterwards to replenish the colon flora essential for proper digestion.

The notion that colloidal silver kills all bacteria/flora in the gut and has no built in programming to distinguish good bacteria from bad is simply a myth. Often times ‘bad bacteria’ is simply an overgrowth of what might otherwise be ‘good bacteria’. Such problems are often caused by the use of antibiotic drugs, which by the way are responsible for the deaths of thousands of people every year. Dr. Henry E. Simmons, former director of the FDA’s Bureau of Drugs, in 1972 Senate subcommittee hearings stated that antibiotics were, at that time, responsible for from 30,000 to 150,000 deaths. The numbers may be much higher now. Proper digestion is key to the optimal absorption of nutrients and a strong immune system.
