10 Ways to Use Colloidal Silver - Ted's Q&A

Agyria (blue Skin)

Posted by Kristy (Lansing, Michigan) on 12/23/2007

Hi. I was just watching the evening news on The CW (out of Chicago, I think) and they were interviewing a man with blue skin. Apparently this is being linked to Colloidal Silver use. He's been drinking it for quite some time and also, apparently, applied it to his skin, resulting in the very apparent discoloration. Any thoughts on the matter?

Agyria is a common problem with using a straight batch of colloidal silver, often the skin is not really blue, it is closer to gray color. The problem occurs when a free silver ions react with the sulfur in your body to from AgS, or silver sulfide. Most colloidal silver produced are actually either a nonreactive Ag or a reactive Ag with a charge, then it reacts with the body's available sulfur to cause a "blue skin", more more accurately is "gray skin".

This problem can be prevented, which I solved over a decade ago, which required that a couple of drops of hydrogen peroxide is added to a liter of colloidal silver. The peroxide, reacts with the FREE silver ions to form Silver Oxide. When I first add this, I get a cloudly solution, and after three days, this cloudy solution becomes a clear white transparent water. However, an unreacted Ag or Silver in a solution will show itself is a faint yellow transparent solution. So this ia an easy way to tell. If you add a drop of H2O2 into this it becomes cloudy. However, if the solution is Silver oxide, it won't become cloudy as there is no longer any "free" silver ions. When they are no longer free, it won't react with the body's sulfur to form silver oxide. Hence, if a hydrogen peroxide, at least, is added to the colloidal silver you buy, the silver is no longer free, and the condition of blue skin or gray skin or agyria is prevented.

However, there is ANOTHER way, that DOES NOT REQUIRE you to wait for three days to fully digest the free Silver. When I make a batch of colloidal silver, using the silver wire or silver rods as an electrode using any D.C. adapter, the BEGINNING solution is distilled water with a 0.5% H2O2 concentration, which is 1/2 percent H2O2 concentration, or approximate amount such as one tablespoon (plastic spoons!) of 3% H2O2 in a 1 or 1.5 liter of colloidal silver is generally sufficient, to prevent any free metal silver form occuring.

It should be noted that a silver oxide may have a better antibacterial properties and less staining problems then the use of pure silver. So in practice, the use of COLLOIDAL SILVER OXIDE, is the one I actually use and relatively problem free. For example, if a free silver has too much charges, I have noted that constipation occurs if taken too much of colloidal silver with FREE SILVER, but this doesn't happen (within reason such as NOT DRINKING liters of it!) if a COLLOIDAL silver oxide is prepared.

Colloidal silver is used only when needed, at least this is my use of a lot of remedy, and this is one of the secrets of getting a dog to have longer lives (anti-aging for dogs!) when I give my dogs vitamins, I only give it when he NEEDS it. The problem arises when people take it EVERYDAY for more than a year (usually three years), if you want blue skin.

It should be noted that it is very easy to discard any natural remedy just because it has problems. But there are instances where a colloidal silver can save lives. The only known cure for blood poisoning that I am aware off (it has a near 100% fatality) is the colloidal silver. In case where regeneration of face, from severe burns, or wounds that won't heal, a colloidal silver wound dressing is used. The only KNOWN WAY for you to generate MORE STEM cells, is the colloidal silver. This fact is documented in Dr. Robert Becker's book "The Body Electric", where he found there a mammal can grow or regenerate amputated limbs to some extent using the colloidal silver, but to a lesser extent a colloidal gold. Edgar Cayce did mentioned life extension is possible if the silver and gold were used in proper portion. The basis appears that both of these, in proper portion causes the body to generate more stem cells, which may pave a way toward healing. There is some back related injuries or a severe arthritis where a colloidal silver has actually cured. So even if I have to tradeoff between a severe joint pain and a gray skin, I prefer a gray skin anyday. At least it beats the doctor cutting off my legs, especially from a diabetic leg trauma, where healing doesn't occur in high blood sugar. A colloidal silver may help, but some borax may also prevent sugar from reacting with the body's sugar, but lowering the blood sugar through the use of vanadium, tungsten, manganese, zing, and magnesium, will take a time, but it does deal with the cause.

However, the body can get rid of excess silver, assuming I do have agyria, through certain supplements, such as selenium, vitamin E, chelation (chlorella) and I have heard some people to actually cure agyria, just by taken those supplements. The selenium displaces the silver, chelation is by direct removal, vitamin E is an antioxidant, but oil soluble and may aid in detoxification too.

I got colloidial silver for an infected tooth. I rinsed with a few drops in water, no problem. Did it again in a couple of hours, this time added a couple of drops of grapefruit seed extract. Now my whole mouth is inflamed (still after several hours). Tongue feels rough. I am afraid to try the silver again. But I wonder if this is because I mixed the two things together??? Has anyone ever had this type of reaction?

Tedy, I brewed up some this CS. I added the H2O2 at the beginnin & right away it got cloudy. Usually it takes me 5-10 minutes to see cloudy material commin off the silver sticks. I let it run 'bout 10 minutes. Its 8 hours later & the water is still cloudy. I did use filtered tap water. We have good tap water. I plan to use it externally on my athlete's foot, otherwise I'd use distilled. I was under the impression it wouldn't be cloudy this long. Only when I add the H2O2 after its brewed it take 3 days to clear? I be tryin it anyways on my feet to see if it helps. I tried many different things I read here and they work temporararily. I'm lookin to punch the fungus once and for all. I know I got to cut down the candy too.

SOBER;I ALSO HAVE FUNGUS THROUGH-OUT MY WHOLE BODY....... THE DOCTORS CALL IT MYCOSIS SAME AS FUNGUS. IN ORDER TO SLOW UP THE PROGRESS, I HAD TO STOP STARTCHES, ALL SUGAR'S, "NO" CAFFEEN REGULAR TEA HAS CAFFEEN IN IT AS WELL, I BUY THE HERBAL TEA SOLD RIGHT IN THE SUPER MARKET, AND NO DARK SODA'S ALL WHICH HAVE CAFFEEN, JUICES ARE LOADED WITH SUGAR. I FOUND I HAVE TO PRACTICALLY STOP EATING BUT IN A SENSE IT'S WORTH NOT HAVING THIS PAIN AS MUCH. REMEMBER ANTIBIOTICS MAKE'S THIS MATTER WORSE. I ALWAYS WATCH WHAT I EAT OR DRINK AND SEE WHAT REACTIONS THEY GIVE ME...... GOOD LUCK

Good to know Diamond I'll work on my diet. But Ted I made another batch and used distilled water this time to make the CS with H2O2. It didn't cloud up right away like the charcoal filtered tap water did. That stayed cloudy for three days. Does that mean my filtered water is crap to be used externally only? Eck so much for my filter! I hope to get a TDS meter and measure tap water vs my filtered water. Distilled should be 1-2 ppm.

Melanie I would think it is probably because you mixed them. You should immediately read up on grapefruit seed extract. It multiplies the effect of drugs and medicines many times over and one should never take it at the same time as medicine without consulting your doctor.

To the guy with the inflamed mouth. It's the Grapefruitseed extract. NEVER use that stuff unless it is highly deluted. My EX-GF burned her stomach so bad by taking too much that she almost could not eat and was in pain for almost a week. It's not good on mucus membranes.
