In a previous colloidal silver article I have referred to an anomaly that can be caused by the extensive use of colloidal silver. This anomaly is argyria. There is a range of preparations based on silver, which contain many other elements, molecules and other silver stabilizers. Depending on the particular product, its individual concentration and purity, and methods of collecting and the purpose of the use of colloidal silver the risk of argyria occurs. Argyria term is first used by German physician Johann Abraham Albers’s in 1816th year. The term comes from “Argentum,” which is the Latin word for silver.
Colloidal silver is a popular alternative medicine that has gained popularity in mid-nineties (similar to aromatherapy – patchouli oil). It is a liquid suspension of microscopic particles of silver, and this suspension of silver particles is small enough to pass through the human membrane and easily absorbed into the body. Colloidal silver is highly alkaline and is thought to strengthen the immune system and acts as a natural antibiotic. It is known that is able to kill many bacteria, viruses and microorganisms, and is therefore effective in helping with many medical conditions, including acne, athlete’s foot, lichens, fungal infections, parasitic infections, eczema, diabetes and cystitis.
