What's this about drinking silver?!?! (& gold) 🤔

As a jeweler is kinda is a given that I LOVE silver and gold. But I really swear by colloidal silver (and its safe to say as soon as I buy Noble Colloids' 'Colloidal Gold'- I'll swear by ingesting gold too). Especially amongst the tidal paranoia of Covid-19 - it feels like an important tool in my toolbox. Of course in addition to elderberry & zinc fortifications. 

Here's what I know about it...

Silver and gold are elements. That seems obvious but I have to remind myself what exactly that means sometimes...Silver is a chemical element, a white lustrous metal valued for its decorative beauty and electrical conductivity, according to the dictionary. 

-If you drink enough, you'll turn blue. And to be completely honest - that is an appeal to me. Body-mods, yea?

-People have been guzzling silver and gold for a long time. Like thousands of years long. And as someone who ardently believes in arguments for the need to extend humanity's cultural timeline - I'd think even more than the proposed 2,000 years silver has been said to be used to safeguard humanity's immunity. Ancient civilizations realized the powerful anti-microbial effects of silver as exemplified by the Phoenicians who stored water, wine and vinegar in silver bottles to prevent spoiling. You could say silver was the most important antimicrobial agent available before antibiotics. By the 1800s, silver nitrate was used to treat wounds and skin ulcers. Even Hippocrates, the so-called "Father of Medicine" *cough in Western civ* alluded it.

Some folks were born with a silver spoon in their mouths, well I understand the sentiment - quite literally that helped keep the newborn safe. I've heard a healthy dunking in a bath of herbs and fluids also does the trick. 

So all in all - as Noble Colloid's website beautifully describes: "Silver receives its influence from the moon, which provides balance and stability to the World’s ecosystem, and by communicating these influences to the body, serves to fortify and cleanse our own biological systems." 

If you're a vagina haver - I can't recommend Honey Pot Co's intimate washes enough. And you guessed it, they all contain silver. 

God bless metals.
