Important Information About Maintaining Your Health

Recommended Posts

I recently spotted the following information in an internet article and found it to be both educational and interesting.  Please check it out.

Results show Colloidal Silver to be highly germicidal, yet harmless and non-toxic to humans. More important, research shows excellent results with an astonishing array of bacterial, viral and fungal conditions.
Colloidal Silver: Expert Opinions
Because of the research showing colloidal silver's superior performance in fighting microbes, it has attracted the attention of leading scientists and medical researchers throughout the world. Its benefits are now stirring new interest as 50 prominent doctors are currently researching the efficacy and applications of colloidal silver in human health. As a result, many interesting studies have emerged.
As stated earlier, according to experts, no microorganism ever tested has been able to stay alive for more than six minutes when exposed directly to colloidal silver.
Science Digest cites colloidal silver as "...a wonder of modern medicine," and further states "Antibiotics kill perhaps a half dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic. Colloidal silver, used as an anti-microbial agent, will not create super bugs as antibiotics do."
Alfred Searle, founder of the giant Searle Pharmaceuticals (now Monsanto) stated, "Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration ... it has the advantage being rapidly fatal to pathogens without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable." Further information indicates that Colloidal Silver does not cause harmful interactions with other medications or topical treatments.
In laboratory tests with colloidal silver, bacteria, viruses, and fungal organisms are killed within minutes of contact. Larry C. Ford, M.D. of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, Center For The Health Sciences reported in November 1, 1988, " I tested them (the silver solutions) using standard anti-microbial tests for disinfectants. The silver solutions were anti-bacterial for concentrations of 105 organisms per ml of Streptococcus Pyogenes, Staphylococcus Aureus, Neisseria Gonorrhea, Gardnerella Vaginalis, Salmonella Typhi and other enteric pathogens, and fungicidal for Candida Albicans, Candida Globata and M. Furfur."
Because of the many organisms that have developed strains resistant to modern antibiotics, Dr. Robert Becker's finding is of particular importance. Becker, of Syracuse University stated, "All of the organisms that we tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ions, including some that were resistant to all known antibiotics...In no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.”
Some researchers, such as Dr. Leonard Keene Hirschberg, A.M., M.D. of Johns Hopkins, believe that the potential of colloidal silver is just beginning to be discovered. Unlike antibiotics, which are specific only to bacteria, Colloidal Silver disables certain enzymes needed by anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and fungus resulting in the destruction of these enzymes.
Further indication is that these bacteria cannot develop a resistance to silver, as they do with antibiotics.


El Matador Colloidal Silver is produced electronically and in extremely small particle sizes (nano particles),  This is important because the smaller the particle size the more easily the colloidal silver can pass through various membranes in the body, including the blood-brain barrier.  It is made with very high quality distilled water that I produce myself and filtered immediately after it is produced to remove any extraneous material that may be produced during the electrolysis process.  Each batch is spot-tested with a strong laser to ensure that the colloidal silver shows the Tyndall Effect to prove the presence of silver colloids.  I use brown glass bottles for the smaller size because it is the traditional color.  But El Matador Colloidal Silver is so pure that it is not affected by normal levels of light and can be kept in any color bottle, including clear..


There is a fallacious belief that colloidal silver is affected by light and also that it can cause a condition known as Argyria in which the skin and nails can turn gray or blue.  This can only happen with poor quality, contaminated colloidal silver such as may be made with tap water containing chlorine.  Even colloidal silver made with crude electrical setups, such as with three nine-volt batteries, will not cause argyria if made with very pure distilled water.  But such setups make silver colloids so large that they are not nearly as effective in one's body as nano-silver made with electronically controlled voltage and current.


Every household should have El Matador Colloidal Silver on hand for illnesses, cuts, scrapes and particularly burns.  Even better for burns, cuts and scrapes is El Matador Ouch-Aid Colloidal Silver Gel.  It is made with a stronger concentration of colloidal silver especially for topical use and made into a gel so that it will stay where you put it.  Some people very effectively take two teaspoons of El Matador Colloidal Silver every day as a way of keeping their immune systems strong and avoiding colds, flu and other infections.


El Matador Colloidal Silver is available in 8-ounce bottles for $!5 and in 32-ounce bottles for $45 (a 25% saving).  I usually have colloidal silver and other El Matador products available at the Tuesday market.  You may also order in advance for Tuesday or arrange pickup at my house by sending email to usn11958@gmail.com  You may also request a free Colloidal Silver User's Manual and other El Matador information.  At the market I wander around wearing a white tee shirt with the red El Matador logo.

Make an inexpensive investment in your health with El Matador.

Please share your source.

I don't recall the site.  The excerpt was made because the article also discussed other topics.  However, I found a collection of quotations about colloidal silver on another site, and it contains quotations by most of the sources cited in the excerpt I published.  Here is the link for that site:  http://csilverhl.com/12701.html

Here is a link to the Science Digest article:  https://www.advancedsilver.com/third_party_silver_info/Science_Digest_March_1978.pdf


And here are the quotations from the csilver.com site:



Professional Quotes Regarding Colloidal Silver 

"… in this eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine… perhaps, it soon will be recognized as: OUR MIGHTIEST GERM FIGHTER. For example, even the most powerful pharmaceutical antibiotics are effective against only a small number of microorganisms, and then only until drug-resistant strains develop. Yet, research at Washington University School of Medicine … has shown that silver is bactericidal to nearly 650 different disease-causing organisms, and that silver–resistant bacteria strains do not develop." ---Science Digest

"It killed not only the HIV virus, but every virus that was tested in the lab." ---U.C.L.A. Medical Center

"When silver was present, the cancer cell de-differentiated and the body was restored." Dr. Gary Smith

"…major enhancement of both the rate and competency of the healing process…the germ-killing of silver has been known for some time…the Soviets use silver ions to sterilize recycled water aboard their space stations… It kills even antibiotic strains, and also works on fungus infections… It stimulates bone-forming cells, cures the most common stubborn infections of all kinds of bacteria, and stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues." Robert O. Becker, M.D. –author of The Body Electric

"… studies showed the spectrum of organisms susceptible to electrically generated silver ions was wide and …. compared favorably with…other antibiotics" --- J.A. Spadaro, Ph.D.

"I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes."   Dr. Henry Crooks

"…the colloidal metals… are remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states."--- Dr. Hirschberg, John Hopkins Hospital

"Silver is one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is for all practical purposes non-toxic. Silver has been proven to be effective against hundreds of infectious conditions. It has tremendous anti-microbial power; the history of safe and successful colloidal silver use is extensive, and the number of current health professionals and individuals that successfully utilize colloidal silver to reduce the length and severity of infectious disorders is growing exponentially."  Zane Baranowski, CN

"To primitive life forms…silver is as toxic as the most powerful chemical disinfectants and this, coupled with its relative harmlessness to animate life (i.e. mammals), gives it great potential as a disinfectant."  N.R. Thompson – Runcorn Health Laboratory in England

"With the many research reports and personal testimonials of it being a full spectrum natural antibiotic that destroys virtually all known and developing/mutating pleomorphic pathogens would be a lot of excitement regarding colloidal silver, especially from within the medical community…The harsh reality regarding the FDA, AMA, Pharmaceutical, and scientific community is that there appears to be a lack of enthusiasm. Reluctance to help validate the effectiveness of colloidal silver seems all too common. Although this is changing, the reason for the possible resistance may be rooted primarily in economics. For example, colloidal silver is regarded by the FDA as a pre-1938 drug. Moreover, the FDA does not have jurisdiction regarding a pure mineral element. There has been no incentive for the aforementioned bodies to go through the expensive process of controlled studies to provide proof regarding uses and effectiveness, such as the UCLA and others have done." E. Vincent Goetsch in his book, "Colloidal Silver Maker & Researcher’s Manual"

"Silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650! Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic."  The Association for Advanced Colloid Research

"Silver Colloids greatly assist in eliminating all known pathogens and guard against opportunistic infections. This ‘second immune system’ is synergistic…" Dr. Robert C. Beck, DSc., wrote in "Explore!" 

"Colloidal silver is very effective in treating periodontal disease (gum disease). My patients enjoy the clean fresh breath as colloidal silver immediately cleanses the mouth and destroys odor-causing bacteria. I would recommend that colloidal silver solutions be used after each dental procedure or surgery to eliminate infection and speed healing."  S.R. Cobble, D.D.S.

Obstetrics and Gynecology

“The medicine department of obstetrics and gynecology at UCLA conducted tests in 1988 regarding the use of silver solutions as disinfectants. Anti-microbial and anti-bacterial effects were demonstrated in 10/5 concentrations per milliliter of the following:  neisseria gonorrhea, gardurella vaginalisis, streptococcus pyogenes, staphylococcus aureus, candida albicans, candida eolobata, m. furfur, salmonella typhi.” Larry C. Ford, M.D., UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, November, 1, 1988.

 AIDS Study

“Eight people recover from the AIDS virus in a scientifically documented study. An additional seven AIDS patients recover as verified by anecdotal reports”.  Dr. M. Paul Farber, M.P. N.D., Ph.D., D.C. Author of the "Micro Silver Bullet TM" 4th Edition, November 1996 ISBN 1-87742-00 X Pages XIII & XVI.

 Lyme Disease

“Borrelia burgdorferi and hermsti, organisms associated with causing the symptoms of Lyme Disease, were tested at the Department of Health and Human Services, Rocky Mountain Laboratories and Fox Chase Cancer Center, respectively, in 1995; in the Rocky Mountain Labs study, it was demonstrated that no live spirochetes of either borrellia burgdorferi [B310 orhermsti (HS-1)] survived after 24 hours of exposure to colloidal silver in concentrations of 15 ppm and 150 ppm.” Schuan, Tom, Ph.D., Burgdorfer, Willy Ph.D. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, Rocky Mountain Laboratories, January, 13, 1995.

 Cancer Research

Research by Dr. Robert O. Becker, and others indicated that laboratory tests conducted reverted cancer cells back to normal (not kill them but return them to normal). Other observations made such as a correlation between silver deficiency and illness or proper immune system functioning, burns, soft tissue and bone repair acceleration, and the formation of cells that appear to be able to repair virtually any part of the body. Reduction of inflammation and the antibacterial, germicidal, astringent, antibiotic attributes so far observed are yet to be fully understood. The Body Electric, Dr. Robert O. Becker ISBN 0688069711 Quill, New York or William Morrow & Company

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver; it is therefore considered harmless in any concentration. However, all of the silver salts are identified as toxic, although the only adverse effect noted is Argyria. Therefore the concern is with silver salts and compounds, not colloidal silver.

C.E. A. MacLeod reports colloidal silver being used with marked success in the following cases:  "Septic and follicular tonsillitis, Vincent’s angina, phlyctenular conjunctivitis, gonorrheal conjunctivitis, spring catarrh, impetigo (contagious acne of face and body), septic ulcer of legs, ringworm, soft sores, suppurative appendicitis after operation (the wounds cleaned rapidly), pustular eczema of scalp and pubes, chronic eczema of meatus of ear with recurrent boils, chronic suppuration in otitis media, and bromidrosis of feet. By injection:  gonnorrhoea and chronic cystitis (local), boils, epididymitis." Lancet, Feb. 3, 1912 p. 83.

"The germicidal action of certain metals in the colloidal state having been demonstrated, it only remained to apply them to the human subject, and this has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration, either orally or hypodermically, they have the advantage of being rapidly fatal to the parasites both bacterial and otherwise without any toxic action on the host. Colloidal silver solution is quite stable even in the presence of salts and the normal constituents of the blood. Its destructive action on toxins is very marked, so that it will protect rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanic (from tetanus) or diphtheric toxin." Searle, A. B. The Use of Colloids Health and Disease (Quoting from the British Medical Journal, May 12, 1917 p.83), E.P. Dutton & Company, New York, 1919, p.75

John Meredith, an experienced medical writer, has written a good article entitled: "The Rebellion of Germs Against Antibiotics". Mr. Meredith points out the dangers of the modern world for the easy spread of infections that antibiotics can do nothing about. He explains why drug companies hate natural remedies. They do not make available grant money to study what they feel that they cannot make money on. Mr. Meredith makes reference to a number of cases that colloidal silver has helped including "Gulf War Syndrome" and a number of common medical conditions. He makes reference to a Dr. Tipton who feels that it should be a daily mineral supplement. The article makes a point on why every household should keep colloidal silver on their shelves. It is great to protect children and the elderly. A reference is make about protection from food poisoning which is becoming more and more a serious public health issue.

Everything I read says it is, at best, ineffective and at worst, dangerous.  

You have apparently not been reading in the right places.  Please read my reply to Keith, and you will never be able to say that again.

Science Digest

Science Digest was first published in January 1937[1] in an 8 x 5 inch digest size format of about 100 pages.[2] First edited by G.W. Stamm.,[1] it was targeted at persons with a high school education level.[1] It contained short articles about general science often excerpted from other publications in the style of Reader's Digest.[1] The headquarters of Science Digest was in Des Moines, Iowa.[3]

In November 1980 the magazine was expanded to an 11 x 8 inch glossy page format with full-length articles and color pictures targeted at a college-educated reader.[2] The new version was largely the creation of its then editor Scott DeGarmo. It was issued bi-monthly with circulation of about 500,000 copies. At first it tended to favor breathless cover lines, and often turned to pseudoscience topics, including spontaneous human combustion and UFOs. Unable to compete with more serious publications, such as Discover and Omni, the magazine ceased publication in 1986.[4]

Mayo Clinic, WebMD and many other reputable organisations state that a) Colloidal silver has no significant benefits and b) could be dangerous to take.  However, I am not going to argue the point, if you can convince folks to buy then it is on you.

Important to read what side effects could be possible with the use of colloidal silver. The principle of "first do no harm"  needs consideration before use :

Mayo Clinic writes:

"t's not clear how much colloidal silver may be harmful, but it can build up in your body's tissues over months or years. Most commonly, this results in argyria (ahr-JIR-e-uh), a blue-gray discoloration of your skin, eyes, internal organs, nails and gums. While argyria doesn't usually pose a serious health problem, it can be a cosmetic concern because it doesn't go away when you stop taking silver products.

Rarely, excessive doses of colloidal silver can cause possibly irreversible serious health problems, including kidney damage and neurological problems such as seizures.

Colloidal silver products may also interact with medications, including penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen), quinolone antibiotics, tetracycline and thyroxine (Unithroid, Levoxyl, Synthroid) medications."  Dr Brent A Bauer, M.D., Mayo Clinic. 

Dr Bauer is affiliated with Mayo Clinic's research on alternative medicine modalities.  He spearheads research and is respected with regards to his contributions to  new integrative approaches to the delivery of medicine. 

As a nurse of more than 50 years, I can confirm the use of silver compounds topically for serious burns in the hospital setting.
