History of The Use of Colloidal Silver for Healing
According to Prof. Ronald J. Gibbs, Director of the Center for Colloidal Science, University of Delaware, the use of colloidal silver dates as far back as several centuries. Alfred B. Searle, in a book entitled The use of colloids in health and disease, published in 1920, reviewed dozens of articles on colloidal silver. In 1910, Henry Crookes demonstrated that B. coli communis is killed in six minutes by a silver colloid. From the work of these early researchers came the often-quoted phrase, "No microbe is known that is not killed by silver colloid in laboratory experiments in six minutes."

In 1914, Simpson and Hewlett used a silver colloidal suspension to kill typhoid bacillus. It took 15 minutes with silver colloid at a concentration of 500 ppm (parts per million) and two hours at five ppm. This was the first time that very low concentrations of colloidal silver were shown to be effective. One great advantage of colloidal elements in such low concentrations was that they are completely harmless to the patient.
During 1970s and 1980s, a research team from the Veterans Administration Hospital in New York demonstrated that colloidal silver was effective in killing bacteria and providing cures in some very difficult cases. They have "rediscovered" what had been known for centuries - the fact that silver killed bacteria. The use of colloidal silver lost its aura when antibiotics became popular and came to be widely used.
