Silver Sol FAQ’s

1. What is Silver Sol technology?

Silver Sol is simply superfine silver particles dispersed in deionized water. The term “Sol” is a chemical designation of a pure mineral, such as metallic silver, permanently suspended in water where the mineral’s charge is transferred to the entire body of water. Silver Sol technology includes advanced scientific research and new product development utilizing its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties.


2. What does Silver Sol do?

Silver Sol has the ability to destroy 143 types of bacteria, both forms of viruses, mold, yeast, and a limited number of parasites. It can also purify water (US Patent Office, Nov. 2006). Silver Sol can be used to treat over three hundred conditions; these are listed in the book A Fighting Chance by Dr. Gordon Pedersen.

Dr. Pedersen notes that Silver Sol functions as a non-toxic disinfectant for internal or external use as it comes in three forms: liquid, topical gel, and aerosolized. From toenail fungus to rashes, Silver Sol aids the immune system in reducing the bacteria, viruses, and mold it encounters.


3. Which health conditions can be improved by using Silver Sol?

Silver Sol, ingested at an effective level of concentration, can kill pathogens associated with the following conditions, in addition to many others:

  •  Boils
•  Burns
•  Cavities
•  Dysentery
  •  Impetigo
•  Ear Infection
•  Fevers
•  Food Poisoning
  •  Mold & Fungus
•  Pneumonia
•  Wound Healing
•  Yeast Infection

 

 

 


4. How does Silver Sol work?

Silver Sol destroys the sources of disease (bacteria, viruses, mold, and yeast) using three primary mechanisms of action:

1. Silver Oxide – Silver Sol will remove an electron from the bacterial membrane, thus rupturing the pathogen and killing it on contact.

2. Resonance – Silver Sol resonates at the same frequency of a germicidal light used in labs to kill bacteria and viruses. Because it is small enough (a nanoparticle) to enter the host’s cells, it transmits the resonant frequency without the additional risk of exposure to surrounding tissue.

3. Viral Disruption – Silver Sol can bind with the charged, incomplete genetic viral molecules, preventing viral replication. Note that because normal DNA does not contain a magnetic charge, it remains unaffected by the charge of the Silver Sol.


5. Is Silver Sol Safe to take?

Silver Sol is very safe to take as it is non-toxic, even at high levels. Silver Sol is produced in extremely low parts per million (5-40 ppm); as a result, there isn’t even potential for it to pose a problem in the water treatment plants or in the environment. It’s EPA-approved. According to their guidelines, the oral consumption of small amounts of silver in water on a daily basis poses NO significant risk. To give you an idea of how non-toxic Silver Sol is, the EPA considers a three-gallon spill of Clorox bleach to be a toxic event. In contrast, it would take over 12 million gallons of Silver Sol to be a reportable spill (the entire contents of 12 oil tankers at the same time and place), a nearly impossible scenario.

Two possible side effects, conditions known as argyria and nephrotoxicity, are extremely unlikely to occur with this product due to the low concentration of contained silver. Elemental silver is the only metal not considered to be a heavy (hazardous) metal according to the Merck Index since it does not accumulate in the fats and does not produce poisoning. It passes through the body unchanged, thus it does not produce any harmful metabolites. In addition, it’s non-irritating to skin, eyes, lungs, and mucous membranes.


6. I’ve heard that silver can accumulate in the body and turn the skin blue. Is this true?

First off, nobody has turned blue from using silver sol. This technology has been used for years with no reports of adverse affects.The condition where the skin and gums have a grayish hue is called argyria. It can occur when silver stays in the body at high levels (about 10 times the regular dose of Silver Sol) for a long time (think decades). Users of ionic and colloidal silver preparations can have too high concentrations of silver and could possibly develop the condition. However, research suggests that 98% of the Silver Sol leaves the body by the next day, so there is no need to worry about argyria.


7. Should I use Silver Sol every day or only when I’m sick? How much should I take?

Silver Sol is designed to be used daily to prevent disease; the dosage can be increased during times of greater need. The dosage for most people is two teaspoons of liquid Silver Sol twice daily; however if you get sick you will want to take two tablespoons twice daily. In some severe cases, people have successfully taken 4 ounces per day for up to two weeks. If using the gel, it should be applied to affected area twice daily. For hundreds more recommended uses, buy the book A Fighting Chance by Gordon Pedersen, Ph.D.


8. Is Silver Sol safe for children to use?

Yes, but the dosage changes, depending on body weight. The dose for adults and teenagers is 1-3 teaspoons twice daily. Children who weigh 25-75 pounds should take half the adult dose. Children who weigh less than 25 pounds should take one-third the normal adult dose.


9. When is the best time of day to take Silver Sol? Is it best to take it with food or on an empty stomach?

Take it at a time when you will not forget to take it. For daily prevention, most people take the twice-daily, two-teaspoon dose morning and night.

While taking the Silver Sol with food won’t cause any problems, salt can neutralize the effects of silver, so take the silver on an empty stomach for optimal results.


10. Are there any contraindications for using Silver Sol while taking prescription drugs?

Beyond the “don’t take it with salt” rule, there are no contraindications. If you are worried or concerned about possible problems, take the Silver Sol one hour before or after you take your other medications.


11. What are the side effects of using Silver Sol?

As mentioned earlier, the main concern with taking silver is the condition called argyria, where the skin and gums have a grayish hue. Even though it produces no harm to the body, the discoloration is permanent like a tattoo. This condition is usually caused by an ionic silver or a high-concentrate colloid, which use silver particles with a magnetic charge that stick together like tiny magnets. No one has developed this condition while taking silver sol, though, because its silver particles are permanently embedded in the structure of the water molecules and cannot attract to each other.

No one has developed this condition while taking the patented Silver Sol, though, because its silver particles are permanently embedded in the structure of the water molecules and cannot attract to each other.


12. Does wearing silver jewelry have any of the same benefits as using Silver Sol?

Jewelry has some benefits that are good, but not the same nor as comprehensive as those of using Silver Sol liquid or gel. Silver Sol resonates at a very effective rate of 910 THz, which can destroy the bacteria, viruses, and yeast that cause disease.


13. Does Silver Sol require refrigeration or any special storage? How long can I store it?

Silver sol can be stored for two to eight years. It does not require refrigeration.


14. There are many silver products on the market today. How do I tell good silver products from bad ones?

Look for 10ppm to 30ppm silver that is optimized for the body’s pH. Ask for scientific research published in peer-reviewed science or medical journals. This is where true advancements in medicine will be found; claims about any products associated with these articles can usually be proven.


15. Has silver been used for its health benefits for long? Or is this a recent find?

Silver has been used as medicine and a preservative by many cultures throughout history, for at least a thousand years. Greeks used silver vessels for water purification. Pioneers trekking across the west used it to keep their water safe and prevent dysentery, colds, and flu. They actually put silver dollars in their milk containers and wooden water casks to retard the growth of bacteria. Settlers in the Australian outback suspend silverware in their water tanks to retard spoilage. Now days, silver water purification filters are used in Switzerland, as well as in international airliners and some swimming pools.

Medicinal silver compounds using its germicidal properties were first developed in the late 1800s; the use of silver compounds and colloids was widespread by 1930. In 1940 there were approximately 48 different silver compounds being marketed to treat virtually every infectious disease known to man. These were available in oral, injectable, and topical forms. They carried such names as: Albargin, Novargan, Proganol and Silvol. (9) Since 1973, silver has been shown to have topical activity against 22 bacterial species (643 isolates) including gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. (10) Most recently, a Silver Sol gel has been approved by the FDA in July 2009.


16. What scientific research exists to back up the health benefit claims of Silver Sol?

Over 180 scientific studies conducted at independent facilities like universities, hospitals, research institutions, and nursing homes have been published in medical journals, newsletters, and textbooks. Most of this research is widely available.


17. How does Silver Sol support immune function?

Silver Sol benefits the immune system directly by moderately improving the number of immune cells that are capable of surveying for disease and destroying foreign pathogens. Silver Sol benefits the immune system indirectly by killing the bacteria and viruses the cause disease, thus reducing the workload from an already overworked immune system and allowing the immune system to refocus its energies and recharge.


18. Is Silver Sol considered to be a nutritional supplement, food, drug, or something else?

Silver Sol is a nutritional supplement that passes through the body unchanged. Silver Sol has benefits that are scientifically proven while safe enough to be a food supplement. Silver Sol functions as an antibiotic, more or less equal to pharmaceutical drugs, but is unique because bacteria do not mutate to become resistant to Silver Sol.


19. If Silver Sol is so great, why hasn’t my doctor heard of it?

Doctors know about silver but until now they have not had an FDA-approved, EPA-certified and Patent-approved product that they could use in their medical practice. All students of medicine have heard about silver in some form or another. The problem is that most science classes teach that silver is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, but they also teach that it could cause argyria (the accumulation of silver under the skin) if it is swallowed in a salt form.

While this is true, it’s important to realize that new and far safer forms of silver that are still effective are now available. And they don’t cause argyria. A very simple demonstration of this is the “Blue Man,” who has made his own ionic/colloidal silver and consumed it in enormous doses to control diseases. He has been successful in controlling his conditions but he also turned blue/gray in the process.

New silver sol preparations in lower concentrations and manufactured under Good Manufacturign Practices guidelines have never had a single case of argyria in the estimated millions of users. So your trained scientists and doctors have heard of silver colloid and ionic silver, and now that  a new, safe silver sol has been widely used they will listen. And doctors are now beginning to incorporate Silver Sol into their practices. Many clinics, medical practices and nursing homes have written policies and procedures allowing Silver Sol exclusively.


20. It seems too good to be true. What has Silver Sol been proven to do?

Silver Sol has been proven to do the following:

Silver sol has been show to combat:
Bacteria, Viruses, Fungus and other significant diseases including 143 bacteria.
MRSA, SARS, Malaria, Anthrax, gram negative bacteria, gram positive bacteria, viruses including hepatitis C, Aids, and Influenza.

Safety

The Merck Index reports the following about silver:
“It is a metal that does not accumulate in the fats and is the only metal that is not considered to be a heavy metal because it does not produce heavy metal poisoning.”(12)

Non-toxic at 5000 mg/kg body weight.
90%-99% leaves the body by the next day (13) IRIS report)

Safe and non-toxic (it would take a spill of over 12 million gallons to be considered a reportable spill. (16) EPA #D011)

Helps Improve Wound Healing and Burns (14) University of Utah

As an antimicrobial agent, Silver Sol has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment and prevention of burn infections, post surgical wound infections, and gynecological infections (2, 3). In addition, Silver has been shown to be active against black mold (4), anthrax (5), bubonic plague (6), malaria (7), and numerous viruses such as hepatitis (8).

Silver Aquasol technology is a patented pure silver that is permanently dissolved into solution and retains the magnetic properties acquired during the manufacturing process. It is absorbed, distributed and excreted unchanged (the very definition of non-toxic).

Anti-Viral

Destroys reverse trancriptase and polymerase types of viruses (11) US Patent #7135195) “Virucidal against the Avian influenza A”, especially H5N1 Bird flu (18) Institute for Antiviral Research, 2006

KillsYersinia pestis/plague (99.999999% in 6 minutes) (11).

 

As a broad spectrum antibiotic helps improve antibiotic function

Exhibits equal or broader spectrum of activity than any one antibiotic tested (17)

Silver Sol displayed synergism when tested in combination with 19 different antibiotics. This synergistic effect was reported against the following 7 bacterial strains
(E.coli (MDR), P aeruginosa (MDR), MRSA, Staph aeureus, S.typhi, Shigella flexeri, B. subtillis).

Out of 96 tests, five combinations were synergistic, producing as much as ten times the efficacy:
Silver Sol plus Amikacin, against MRSA
Silver Sol plus Cefoperazone against MRSA
Silver Sol plus Ceftizidime against E.coli (MDR)
Silver Sol plus Ceftizidime against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MDR)
Silver Sol plusKanamycin against E. coli (MDR)

Out of 96 tests, 89 produced an additive effect, demonstrating a reversal of antibiotic resistance in all categories of antibiotics tested. Some antibiotics demonstrated as much as a ten fold increase in efficacy due to the broad spectrum abilities of Silver Sol which kills a wide variety of bacteria viruses and mold.

It should be noted that no organism was found to be resistant to Silver Sol.(17)

Anti-fungal

Kills candida albicans in ten minutes without destroying healthy lactobacillis (flora) (19, 21)
Kills block mold (11, 4)

Testimonials

Helps a significant number of radiation burn patients (22)

Former Surgeon General of the Air Force P.K. Carlton writes the following letter to the office of homeland security requesting the following:

“I feel it can be used in the area of bio-defense from bio-terrorism to infectious diseases such as SARS. The anti-microbial has undergone rigorous testing and has been found to kill Anthrax, Bubonic Plague, Hospital Staph and SARS. It is the first new anti-microbial for the hospital in many years. In addition it is non-toxic to humans, EPA approved (Hospital Staph and Bubonic Plague) and currently Sec 18 approval. The Solution has shown to be a wide spectrum anti-microbial/bio-contaminant that can be used to increase the safety and functionality of healthcare facilities in the event of bio-terror attack or infectious disease outbreak such as SARS. In short, we currently do not have anything with such a wide spectrum of efficacy in our inventory. As such I recommend that the anti-microbial be evaluated for addition to the National Push-back stockpile. It will make our nation a safer place to live and work.” (23).

Orrin Hatch has formally requested Silver Sol be used for homeland security specifically against bioterrorism such as Anthrax (24)
