Is Argyria a Side Effect of Colloidal Silver Usage?
Yes, argyria (skin greying) is a very real side effect of excessive usage of colloidal silver. And many people will use that fact to try to scare you away from using colloidal silver to cure infections or boost immunity.
But you've got to realize that there is no substance on earth that does not have very real side effects when used in excess. For example:
Diabetes, pancreatitis and heart disease are very real side effects of excessive usage of sugar.
Cirrhosis of the liver and heart failure are very real side effects of the excessive usage of iron supplements.
Kidney malfunction, calcification of soft tissue within the body, cellular toxicity and impaired immune function are very real side effects of excess usage of calcium.
Muscle pain, fatigue, irritability, depression, schizophrenia, fever, liver damage and anemia are very real side effects of the excessive usage of Vitamin A.
What's more, DEATH is a very real side effect of the excessive usage of...water (it's called "drowning").
None of those side effects justify being afraid to use the substances mentioned. Why? Because the key phrase involved in each one is "excessive use." When used in moderation, these substances are not only benign, but helpful. When used in excess, they can cause serious health consequences.
It is exactly the same with colloidal silver. If you use it in moderation it is completely harmless, and in fact extremely beneficial for boosting immunity and warding off infections of all sorts. It even helps the body heal from chronic degenerative diseases such as lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease and a host of others that often are caused by underlying hidden infections. But if used in excess daily over long periods of time, the result can be argyria, or skin-staining. It is a harmless, but cosmetically unappealing condition resulting from silver particles being pushed to the skin (the body's third major organ of elimination) at which point they oxidize (or tarnish)from exposure to the sun.
Out of the estimated 10 million users of colloidal silver throughout North America, only a very small handful have been naive, ignorant or ill-informed enough to take such excessive quantities over such long periods of time to result in skin-staining. It is ridiculous to blame the substance for the misuse by the person. That's kinda like saying water is terrible for you because several thousand people a year die in it due to drowning.
