It's always heartening to hear about it when people first experience the powerful infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver, and quickly become astonished at its effectiveness.
In this case, colloidal silver has apparently been introduced to the small island nation of Jamaica by a local named Devon Hall. And Jamaicans are experiencing such wondrous results, the oldest and largest newspaper on the island has picked up on the story.
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for www.TheSilverEdge.com...
In the news article at this link, dated June 15, 2013, and published in The Gleaner, one of the oldest and most popular newspapers in Jamaica, reporter Carl Gilchrist explains that Jamaican residents "are reporting amazing health benefits" after using colloidal silver, and are "dubbing it the miracle water."
According to Gilchrist, a local man named Devon Hall had been introduced to colloidal silver usage while in London, and had learned how to use the liquid substance to heal his chronic sinus problems.
After moving to Jamaica, Hall enthusiastically started bottling and selling colloidal silver there in 2010.
The results, apparently, have proven to be phenomenal. And the Jamaican news media is now picking up on the story.
According to Gilchrist's article, Jamaicans using Hall's colloidal silver preparation have experienced remarkable healings, including:
In one case, according to Gilchrist's article, a Jamaican named Norman Campbell was scheduled for prostate surgery due to an overly-enlarged prostate that was stopping his urine flow and causing him to have to wear a catheter just to urinate.
He reported that after three months of using Hall's colloidal silver solution daily, his prostate swelling was reduced to the point his catheter actually fell out. The doctors apparently canceled his surgery after finding that the prostate had returned to normal size.
Growing Popularity Worldwide
Of course, while colloidal silver usage may be relatively new to some areas of the world, such as Jamaica, it has been one of the most popular nutritional supplements in North America for many decades now.
Indeed, colloidal silver is sold in virtually every well-stocked health food store in America and Canada, and in pharmacies throughout Mexico as well.
According to many sources, there's an estimated 10 million colloidal silver users in North America alone, not to mention millions more across Europe and Asia.
So experience with colloidal silver is growing by leaps and bounds, worldwide. And that may be why Big Pharma is working, through its many shills and intermediaries, to have colloidal silver banned from the marketplace (see here, here and here).
After all, millions of people around the world are now abandoning the use of toxic prescription antibiotic drugs in favor of the infection-fighting qualities of safe, natural colloidal silver.
Here in the U.S., colloidal silver is widely used for many of the same purposes described by reporter Gilchrist in his news article about the introduction of colloidal silver to Jamaica.
For example, J. K. of Aledo, TX recently wrote that colloidal silver appears to have healed his low-grade prostate infection, stating:
"When I bought my Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, I had a problem of getting up 5 times a night to go to the bathroom.
I bought the large book on colloidal silver and read where sometime frequent bathroom visits are caused by a low grade prostate infection, it will not show up on most tests by doctors.
So I started taking a daily dose of colloidal silver and in a very short time, among other benefits, my night time trips cut back to 2 and have remained so to the present. Thank you so much."

Reader "P.H." of Moreno, Valley CA reports a similar story of healing of his prostate symptoms:
"I've used colloidal silver made with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator for a number of things.
I've had symptoms consistent with an enlarged prostate, mostly urinary, such as having to go a lot, urgency in going, etc.
My symptoms disappeared in less than 2 weeks…All symptoms completely disappeared!"
You can read literally hundreds of similar accounts in which people have used colloidal silver to heal an astonishing array of infections and illnesses, at the Colloidal Silver Testimonials page on The Silver Edge website.
Of course, the FDA requires me to tell you at this point that testimonials and anecdotal accounts do not constitute medical proof of efficacy. And, of course, they don't.
But they are good indicators that something is happening, and that more clinical research needs to be done into the healing and infection-fighting benefits of colloidal silver.
Over 80 Medical Studies and White Papers
And speaking of clinical research, are you aware that over 80 medical studies and white papers demonstrating the effectiveness of colloidal silver against a phenomenal range of infectious microorganisms can be accessed at the Clinical Studies and Reports page on The Silver Edge website?
And did you realize that you can find hundreds of Expert Quotes on Colloidal Silver on that same website – quotes from respected medical experts, experienced clinical researchers, famous publications, best-selling authors and more, all attesting to the healing and infection-fighting benefits of colloidal silver?
You see, while the powerful healing and antimicrobial qualities of safe, natural colloidal silver may be relatively "new" information to some people, the truth is, medical science has known about and used electrically generated colloidal silver in various forms for over 100 years.
As Alfred Searle wrote way back in 1919, in his book, The Use of Colloids in Health and Disease:
"Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results...it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to parasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. It protects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus or diphtheria toxin."
And as Sir Malcolm Morris wrote in the British Medical Journal in May of 1917:
Colloidal silver "has a distinctly soothing effect. It rapidly subdues inflammation and promotes healing of the lesions, it can be used with remarkable results in enlarged prostate with irritation of the bladder, in pruritis ani, and perineal eczema, and in haemorrhoids."
And as written in The National Druggist (Vol. 50, page 338) in August 1920:
"Colloidal silver is powerfully destructive of toxins of bacterial origin...
…Properly prepared, it is extremely stable...[and] has been proved most useful in the treatment of diseases of the eye, the nose, and the ear...
…colloidal silver has proved its value in combating the following ailments among others – tonsilitis, gonorrhoeal conjunctivitis, spring catarrh, pustular eczema of scalp, septic ulcers of legs, boils, chronic cystitis, ringworm, soft sores.
But we must not prolong the list of the good works of colloidal silver. Suffice it that at the present time it is the most extensively used in medicine of all the sols."
What's more, silver metal by itself has been used for its powerful healing and antiseptic qualities since the time of Hippocrates, some 460 years before the time of Christ.
According to Dr. J. Wesley Alexander, M.D., writing in an article titled History of the Medical Use of Silver, published in the journal Surgical Infections (Vol. 10. Number 3, 2009), "Hippocrates used silver preparations for the treatment of ulcers and to promote wound healing."
Dr. Alexander also noted Herodotus, the Father of Ancient History, stated that "No Persian king, including Cirrus (i.e., Cyrus), would drink water that was not transported in silver containers, which kept the water fresh for years. This was particularly important in military conflicts, where fresh water from natural sources was not readily available."
The bottom line being this: Silver's often wondrous healing, antimicrobial and infection-fighting properties have been known and documented for literally thousands of years.
And while millions of people worldwide are gradually discovering this safe, natural substance and it's many healing uses, there's still a long way to go in getting the word out, since the FDA has now banned colloidal silver vendors from discussing it's powerful infection-fighting qualities in their advertising or labeling.
Thankfully, many cutting edge medical doctors and clinical researchers are catching on to the often astonishing healing and infection-fighting benefits of colloidal silver, and are heartily recommending it.
As Harvard educated Dr. Jonathan Wright, M.D., of the famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington state, has written:
"Colloidal silver just might be the next germ-fighting wonder drug. And not just for the serious threats making headlines: It's also effective against bacterial infections like strep throat, viruses like the flu, and fungal infections like Candida.
No matter how much a germ mutates, it can't change enough to escape the damaging effects of colloidal silver. And in the process, the silver doesn't harm human tissue or kill off the good bacteria in the intestine the way antibiotics and other medications do…
…Beginning in the 1970s, several independent researchers found that silver ions easily destroy Candida and other fungi. But it wasn't until a pilot study during the mid-1990s that included human patients suffering from terminal AIDS that medical researchers established solid evidence showing just how quick and effective silver ions can be in the treatment of Candida as well as HIV.
In this study, nine individuals who were near death were divided into two subgroups. One group suffered from HIV and a terrible Candida infection. The other group suffered from both HIV and an extreme form of malnutrition (known as Wasting Syndrome).
The researchers found that in both groups the colloidal silver was capable of killing pathogens and purging the bloodstream of germ defenses in order to restore the immune system."
And as Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D. board certified immunologist and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School has stated:
"Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science – atural silver.
I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent."
As Dr. James F. Balch, M.D. has stated on page 66 of his best-selling book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing:
"Taken internally, colloidal silver can be used to fight infection. It has been shown to be effective against more that 650 disease-causing organisms, including Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria and the fungus Candida albicans."
And as Dr. Ron Surowitz, D.O., M.D., former head of the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association has written:
"Sometimes a treatment can be worse than the illness, but not in the case of Colloidal Silver.
I have my patients spray or swish Colloidal Silver in their mouths from one to three times daily, depending on the severity of their condition…or, in a dose of one quarter to one teaspoon, and even up to one tablespoon, one to three times daily for situations that are more problematic.
I also have them use it in small amounts daily as a preventative...It's interesting how many of my patients improve with the use of Colloidal Silver. It enhances the immune system where other antibiotics cause yeast overgrowth...
...[As an example] one patient had persistent yeast infections. Having had no success with both prescription and non-prescription treatments, she called me, at her wit's end.
I suggested that she try a douche of two teaspoons of Colloidal Silver in a quart of water. Three days later she was evaluated in my office. The symptoms of her yeast infection had vanished, and there was no visible sign of infection."
And as the prestigious American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine has written in their Physician & Practitioner Administered Procedures and Therapies guide:
"Often called the 'penicillin of alternative medicine,' colloidal silver disables the enzymes that bacteria, parasites, viruses, and fungi rely on to use oxygen. Unable to 'breathe,' the organisms die and are eliminated from the body.
While an antibiotic drug may kill several types of disease organisms, colloidal silver delivers the kiss of death to at least 650 disease organisms. In addition, colloidal silver can be taken over long periods of time because microorganisms cannot develop a resistance to it.
…Among the conditions colloidal silver has controlled are severe burns, acne, boils, candida and yeast infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive problems and colitis, ear and sinus infections, herpes, shingles, lupus, malaria, viral and fungal infections, blood parasites, rheumatoid arthritis, and ringworm.
Colloidal silver can be taken internally in a small amount of distilled drinking water. It also can be applied topically to cuts and open sores and can be inhaled or sprayed using an atomizer."
