This is kind of funny as I just answered another question in another forum regarding silver halides and photo film and paper.This added another twist that actually effects the "silver" itself.http://www.berk-edu.com/HYB_subsite/PDF_hyb/ToningWithTea.pdf"REDEVELOPMENT TONING with TEAThis involves ‘bleaching’ the print first, then ‘re-developing’ in tea. This is the samebasic process as bleaching and sepia toning silver prints."The tannic acid in tea actually creates a photo process and should NOT be used with Colloidal or Ionic Silver.One should be very careful about adding things to silver products.There are creans, sprays, all sorts of combinations sold.Personally, I never recommend you add anything to Colloidal or Ionic Silver.Hope this helps.
Thanks for your reply.I have been adding a little silver to the glass of water that I drink through the night. I think it has been helping to get rid of the bacteria in my teeth.
Absolutely, that's a good idea.I use a CPAP machine when I sleep and I add a little silver to the water in the humidifier to keep it pathogen free.I have been nursing a bad root canal for about 2 years now and when it starts getting infected at the root as evidenced by the pain and puffy gum (abscess).When it does get infected, probable 2 times a year, I hold about 1 oz non diluted Ionic Silver that I make myself on the infected area for about 30 to 45 seconds twice daily and swallow what's left and normally within 2 days the swelling is completely gone.I continue this for a couple of more days. One of these days I gotta get that fixed.So as you can see, it is very powerful and even when diluted as you are using it is still very effective. You might want to try holding it in your mouth for about 30 seconds before swallowing and see if that doesn't help a little more.Just for clarity, "most" Colloidal Silver on the market is approximately 10-20% colloidal and 80-90% ionic silver, so technically it is Ionic Silver.Colloidal Silver is just the opposite and in my opinion, there is little if any difference in efficacy.Also, all CS made at home with a generator is Ionic Silver.
aren't you worried about turning blue like the guy who was making hte rounds of talk shows earlier this year?
I'm not the least bit worried because I don't intake nearly the quantities of colloidal silver that he did. Remember, less is more!
