We have been seeing the ionic or colloidal silver generators for several years now and have researched them quite extensively in that time. Last week after having thought about it long enough we finally got the materials we needed in order to make our own. One of the deciding factors was the health care situation, not just in our personal lives but the nation as a whole.
Since we have been “retired” we have had no health insurance so keeping healthy has been a priority of ours. We figured what could this hurt and if it’s a genuinely good thing then how many benefits could we get from it. Our investment in the materials to make the generator came to about 30 dollars. The batteries and the water will be our only additional costs in the future as the amount of silver we bought should do us til we die. We figure that is a very economic way to taking another step of hopefully ensuring our health if it indeed works as it has been touted to. If it doesn’t seem to work then we have 23 dollars of silver laying around and wasted a total of 7 dollars.The recipe and version we built

History of the use of silverKnowledge of silver's health giving properties goes back over 2000 years. Silver derived preparations were commonplace up to the 1940s until antibiotics broke onto the scene. Silver was all but forgotten. However, with the advent of Multi-drug-resistant (MDR) germs, scientists and researchers are now looking at alternatives including silver and importantly, Colloidal Silver which is also effective against Viral, Fungal and Yeast Infections.
The ancient Romans and Greeks found that liquids would stay fresher longer if put in silver containers. Our own American pioneers found that a silver dollar put in a jug of milk would delay spoilage. They also found that if they would keep their silverware "hidden" in their water barrel that the water would not go bad.
Silver is a very powerful natural antibiotic. It has been used for thousands of years in its less effective solid form but in more recent decades it has been used in its colloidal form ... with no side effects. It is a catalyst, disabling the particular enzyme that all one-celled bacteria, fungus and virus, use for their oxygen metabolism which means they suffocate. Viruses are destroyed because the electric charge of the silver particles cause their internal protoplast to collapse, and are rendered unable to reproduce. Using the proper solution there are no side effects and using a true colloidal silver does no harm to the essential bacteria found in our intestinal tract.http://www.icnr.com/articles/silverwater.html
Applications include diluted oral, topical, as a nasal, ear, or as a spray for other sensitive tissues. It kills all diseases causing bacteria, fungus, and viruses within six minutes of contact, but leaves unharmed the "friendly" bacteria. Many people take colloidal silver internally every day to boost their immune system. It does not sting, burn, or hurt even the most sensitive areas.It can be used on warts, open sores, or a rinse for acne, eczema, and other skin irritations. It can be used vaginally, anally, or even atomized and inhaled. The number of disease organisms presently identified that colloidal silver is fatal to is now over 650. Listed below are some of the viruses that colloidal silver kills in less than sixty seconds. http://www.icnr.com/articles/silverwater.html
Argyria and turning blueColloidal silver made with an ionic generator such as ones that are sold on the internet or home made generators will not cause argyria when taken at proper dosage levels. Ionic silver products contain a low percentage of their silver content in the form of particle , they all have a fairly low particle surface area relative to the total silver content
