Silver has been used in alternative medicine for centuries and today many people recommend ingesting or topically applying colloidal silver to the body for a range of health benefits. I recently discovered Colloidal Earth, a family run company that produce 100% colloidal silver and plant based mineral products to provide enhanced natural health and healing. Before launching their business, they spent three years researching the historical and modern day uses of various metals and minerals.
Colloidal silver contains nanoparticles of silver (a ‘colloid’ is a mixture of a liquid with tiny particles – in this case, silver – suspended in it), which is something that cannot be obtained through our diets. The minerals used by Colloidal Earth are extracted from prehistorically available natural sources and cannot be found in our diets today so supplements can be used to help our bodies obtain them. All of the products are vegan friendly, contain no genetically modified ingredients and have not been tested on animals. Colloidal Earth’s products have been recommended and prescribed by naturopathic, homeopathic and Ayurvedic practitioners in the UK and around the world. Testimonials and videos from some of these practitioners can be found on the Colloidal Earth website.
When either ingested or used topically, silver has many health and beauty benefits. It has been used clinically as an antiseptic, and elsewhere to purify water. One article from Science Digest in 1976 argues that silver has the power to destroy over 650 pathogens and other benefits include killing fungi, germs and viruses. Regular users of silver claim it can help ease congestion, eczema and psoriasis, and reduce swelling with no side effects.
I tried the Colloidal Earth Colloidal Silver Spray which has received excellent five star reviews from customers on their website. Some customers have noted they have seen a great improvement in their acne since using this spray and you can see some great before and after photos on the website. I had a small area of irritation and redness on my skin and, after using the spray, the problem cleared up completely within two days, so I was impressed by the results.
I also had the opportunity to try the Colloidal Silver Liquid 200ml. Colloidal Earth recommend that this ingestible liquid can be used as a natural alternative to treat infections like sinusitis, cold sores, sore throat, urinary tract infections, gum disease – as well as sunburn and insect bites. This product has also received some fantastic feedback from their customers on their website which are well worth a read. The dosage recommended by Colloidal Earth is up to 1-4 teaspoons daily (although The Bespoke Black Book always recommends speaking to your GP or physician before taking supplements or changing your healthcare routine). I have been adding mine to a glass of water first thing in the morning. Whilst I didn’t have any particular aliments, I was looking to heal, since taking the supplement I have noticed myself in great health and have been feeling very fit, well and full of energy.
I certainly think the products are well worth a try and do offer an interesting alternative to many other health treatments that can contain potentially harmful ingredients. You can visit the Colloidal Earth website to read practitioner testimonials and order their wide range of products.
