What follows are scientific references pertaining to the safety and efficacy of ionic colloidal silver:
Ionic colloidal silver is non-toxic, is efficacious against many microbes and is safe to use. It also promotes healing according to the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease registry, U.S. Public Health Service.
No adverse events (AE) associated with the use of colloidal silver have been reported to the FDA1.
Antimicrobial Activity In Topical Use
A study that aimed at assessing the safety and efficacy of topical colloidal silver solution for the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus biofilms in a sheep model showed that topical colloidal silver solution has effective anti-biofilm activity in Staphylococcus aureus CRS in a sheep model and appears safe2.
According to various published articles and clinical research studies, ionic colloidal silver has a wide spectrum of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
Antiseptic Activity In Topical Use
A research article produced by Pharmacognosy Communications in 2012 demonstrate the effective antiseptic activity of certain colloidal silver preparations indicating that they should be seriously considered as medicinals for topical use e.g. treating burns, periodontitis, thrush etc3.
Wound Healing & Skin Care
In a published article by Robert O. Becker, the effects of electrically generated silver ions on human cells and wound healing were evaluated. According to the article, a method of producing local antibiotic effects by means of an iontophoretic technique using free silver ions has been evaluated in vitro and in vivo for more than two decades.
The antibiotic properties of the technique have proved useful in both animal and human studies. In the course of determining the optimal clinical methodology for infected open wounds, a significant growth stimulation property resembling local tissue regeneration was noted.
This has been traced to either the apparent production of dedifferentiation of normal mature cells or the stimulation of pre-existing stem cells in the wound, resulting in the production of large numbers of progenitor cells4.
Colloidal silver benefits many skins conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis. In addition it soothes and helps to heal scrapes, abrasions, blisters and sunburn.
The Journal for Global Advances in Health and Medicine published an article in January 2013 relating to Homeopathic Medications as Clinical Alternatives for Symptomatic Care of Acute Otitis Media and Upper Respiratory Infections in children.
According to the article, clinical research suggests that over-the-counter homeopathic medicines offer pragmatic treatment alternatives to conventional drugs for symptom relief in children with uncomplicated acute otitis media or upper respiratory infections.
The article concludes that homeopathy appears equivalent to and safer than conventional standard care in comparative effectiveness trials for the above-mentioned conditions.
Our modern prescription antibiotic drugs are designed to work against specific classes of bacteria, but ear infections may be caused by multiple classes of bacteria or can even be fungal.
It is here where ionic colloidal silver will play an important rule due to its wide scope of antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties.
The anti-inflammatory activity of nanocrystalline silver was examined in pigs with contact dermatitis as per a Nanomedicine article, September 20086.
Erythema, edema, and histological data showed that nanocrystalline silver-treated pigs had near-normal skin after 72 hours, while other treatment groups remained inflamed.
The results demonstrated that nanocrystalline silver had a direct anti-inflammatory effect on the contact dermatitis the pigs were induced with, and the overall outcome of the healing process was improved.
