I have a kit to make it, and have heard only positive things. Some mistake it for those silver drops they put in babes eyes, but it isn't at all the same. It is silver particles suspended in water. It works in two ways 1) Silver is a natural anti-biotic. apperently they told soldiers in world war (1, 2?? ok I forget) to swallow a silver dollar to prevent infection from any internal bleeding. It was a very common anti-biotic until we started using modern anti-biotics, so up until around the '20's /'30's. There is also a theory that the royalty escaped the plague because they ate with silver spoons, absorbing small amounts daily (the origin of the term blue-bloods).
2) Due to the process of suspending the silver particles in water, which involves hooking two silver rods up to a neg. clamp and a pos. clamp coming out of a battery (plus a saline solution to make the mineral flow freely) ... Anyway, the water takes on a positive charge. Apperently, pathogens are negatively charged and self destruct upon contact w/ pos. charge, so this is one more way it kills them.
I have used it successfully to treat pink eye and yeast infection by applying it topically and taking some internally. I have given it to my son fairly regularily (not daily, but as necessary, for a week or two at a time) since he was just under two. The only time I experienced anything strange with it was when I suspected we had parasites and gave ds quite a lot. The next day he had this foamy pooh. He was fine otherwise, but the pooh was all full of air bubbles, very wierd. Anyway, I've never given him that much since, as I didn't know what to think of the foamy pooh.
The only warning I've heard is not to take it while pregnant, as it affects single celled organisms and little foetus's are still developing cell by cell.
I have never heard of overdose, and read about a man with AIDS who drinks around 2 cups a day. The only other thing I've read is that an excess would turn your skin grey. But this would have to be a severe excess, as I've never noticed a thing, nor has my mother who takes it far more regularily than me (like a tablespoon almost dauily for the last two years.)
I would definately recommend trying it. It is really harmless, especially in the doses recommended to you. It tastes just like water, so is easy to get kids to drink some. I put it in a little shot glass.
It is expensive retail, though.
I've even used it on my face, with a cotton ball, to clear up zits. It really seems to work on anything I've tried it. Also, I 've taken a sip of it affter I was throwing up all day, and didn't throw up again.
I've never been able to convince my friends to buy it off me. Most that took samples never finished them. I think because it just seems like water, it is unconvincing. But I really think it works.
(I've also seen colloidal gold recently , which is apperently a natural anti-inflammitory)
Oh, one more thing, don't store it near an electrical outlet, in the fridge, etc. The electrical frequency will take away the positive charge and the silver won't be suspended in the water, but will turn to sedement in the bottom.
Look it up on the web. Your bound to get a mix of good and bad reports to help make an informed decision.
