Notice how Grue has nothing to say to me and the studies I provided. He also hasn't been able to provide evidence of ANYONE who used pure colloidal silver (pure distilled water, and .999+ silver ionized into it) in moderation and was damaged physically by it. You can't even provide just one example? How many examples can be provided of amoxicillin hurting and even killing people? Quite a few. I am not saying one can replace the other completely - but if you are going to talk about safety well it has a pretty impeccable record compared to pretty much any pharmaceutical you could pick out of a hat.
Stop putting words in my mouth. I questioned colloidal's effectiveness in curing disease when ingested, not whether it's safe.

You are aware that many modern doctors incorporate elements of non-western medicine, but you don't care because that fact is inconvenient to the scary FUD associated with holistic medicine with which you are trying to smear colloidal silver.  YLFI: guilt by association, congratulations!
It's not FUD. There is just no evidence presented in this thread. If you think I missed a piece of evidence, please redirect me to which source I missed. Please note that evidence refers to empirical evidence (from RCTs), not how many physicians wrote about it, or how long the practice has been around.

You are also aware that the oligodynamic effect is neither controversial nor a conspiracy theory many people find highly offensive, yet you still throw out a red herring about '9/11 nutjobs.'
I have never denied the oligodynamic effect. This has been said many times, even you acknowledge this in your posts.

How distasteful of you to stand on the graves of the dead in order to defame a well known health product with a very long history of extensive use.   Roll Eyes

Couldn't you think of a less inflammatory way to make your (rather silly) point?  Oh that's right, you are here for no reason other than to start flame wars.  Well cupcake, have fun getting trollstomped.
history of use does NOT constitute evidence unless there were properly controlled trials proving its effectiveness.

How is it an "appeal to emotion" to point out that both colloidal silver and cannabis both have long (1000+ year) histories of safe, effective prior use but are not studied extensively at present due to lack of patent potential?
oh isn't that convenient? a product that has been around for thousands of years has never had its validity verified by modern science? Must be some big phrama conspiracy there. Again, just because it's "common sense" doesn't mean it's automatically true. Remember when it was "common sense" that low temperatures caused the cold?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

There you go again, moving the goal posts to the horizon by purposefully defining "evidence" in as artificially narrow a way as possible.  Ever heard of the phrase "Evidence of the Senses?"  No?  It's going to come as a shock to you, but there are plenty of kinds of evidence produced outside of RCTs.   Wink

Of course you never denied the oligodynamic effect.  That would be stupid.  But so is being unable to discuss colloidal silver without ranting about '9/11 nutjobs.'

I remember reading somewhere your body never processes the silver out and continued use turns your skin blue. This stuff even legal to sell?

Oprah had a retarded man who abused CS and turned his skin blue on her show in an attempt to discredit colloidal silver.


Colloidal silver is more bullshit snake oil.  Everyone knows it.

Do you speak from experience? If not then please keep your "knowledge" to yourself.

Tell me how RCTs are considered as narrow. RCTs are the standard in modern, evidence based medicine. You should also know that "Evidence of the Senses" is basically anecdotal evidence, and therefore not reliable.

Also, whether or not RCT results can be reproduced outside of RCTs does not have anything to do with the reliability of non-RCT results.

I have never denied the oligodynamic effect. This has been said many times, even you acknowledge this in your posts.
Of course you never denied the oligodynamic effect.  That would be stupid.  But so is being unable to discuss colloidal silver without ranting about '9/11 nutjobs.' 
uh... ok?

How is that a red herring? You were arguing that colloidal silver was effective because of its use throughout history.

Thanks grue, we do have lots of fun around here don't we?   Cool  

I didn't imply anything about "all RCTs."  My HS English teacher taught me to avoid 'always and never' statements.

Your academic research edge cases are the exception not the rule, and do not dispute my reasoning regarding the results of lack of profit motive meeting exorbitant expense.  

Also, many research institutions are highly dependent of corporate benefactors.  These 'commonize cost, privatize profits' games are euphemistically called 'public-private partnerships.'  (I call them fascism, but that's another topic.)

As you know, there are different types of evidence, with varying qualifying requirements and standards.  IE: Statistical, testimonial, anecdotal, and analogical evidence.

Your myopic fixation on only one kind (statistical) and unwillingness to accept the others is motivated solely by your malicious negative prejudice towards colloidal silver.

If I get a burn (especially sunburn  Embarrassed) I don't need RCTs to tell me that applying aloe vera is a good idea.  I learned that from my grandma, and it's common sense.

RTCs may help ascertain the efficacy and agents of aloe's action over a large groups of people, but there's no reason for any individual to suffer while waiting for them to be designed/approved/funded/executed/analyzed/reviewed/published/etc.

You may, but I do not live in a socially-constructed reality.  My epistemology is based on rational individualism, which does not discount (and indeed exalts) the evidence of the senses:

Quote
In this highly original defense of realism, Atlas Society founder David Kelley argues that perception is the discrimination of objects as entities, that the awareness of these objects is direct, and that perception is a reliable foundation for empirical knowledge. His argument relies on the basic principle of the "primacy of existence," in opposition to Cartesian representationalism and Kantian idealism.

In the first part of the book, Kelley discusses the nature and validity of perception. He argues against classical sensationalist and modern computational theories, according to which perception involves inferences from sensory input. Unlike most realists, he also offers an in-depth consideration of the problems of perceptual relativity. His theory incorporates a key distinction between the object and the form in which it is perceived. This distinction provides insights into the status of phenomenal qualities, the nature of perceptual constancy, and the difference between primary and secondary qualities.

In the second part of the book, Kelley is concerned with the way we distinguish conceptual knowledge from perception. His theory of non-propositional justification shows how perceptual judgments are supported by the direct awareness of objects, and it allows a novel defense of empiricism.

http://www.atlassociety.org/david-kelley-evidence-senses

Again, trusting the FDA's medical advice (RCTs be damned) is like trusting the SEC for investment advice ("Madoff?  Sure, he's a great guy.  A real mench!").
Or like trusting public schools to educate your children.
Or like trusting the Fed with the power to print money.
Or like trusting the FEC to ensure free and fair elections.
Or like trusting the Post Office to deliver mail.  Oh, wait.  That one is actually in the Constitution so NVM.   Tongue

According to the wiki, RCTs have plenty of their own problems:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randomized_controlled_trial#Disadvantages

    9.1 Limitations of external validity
    9.2 Costs
    9.3 Time
    9.4 Relative importance of RCTs and observational studies
    9.5 Difficulty in studying rare events
    9.6 Difficulty in studying outcomes in distant future
    9.7 Pro-industry findings in industry-funded RCTs
    9.8 Therapeutic misconception
    9.9 Narrowing of the studied question
    9.10 Statistical error
    9.11 Cultural effects
    9.12 Conflict of interest dangers

Luckily it's a free country so there's no problem with you abstaining from colloidal silver while decrying the choice of millions of consumers to use it when and as they see fit, while happily ignoring your pedantic objections/concern trolling and improve our quality of life with a product well-known to be safe and with a long history of practical value.   Smiley

Thanks again for your interest in Sacred Silver, the only colloidal silver product produced exclusively for the Bitcoin community.  Your opinion is important to us, because we appreciate any opportunity to address the misconceptions about, and baseless hostility towards, distilled water containing 10 parts per million of extremely tiny nanoscale silver particles (and ions).

how is this relevant to colloidal silver? your argument is based on mistrust of goverment agencies (opposite of appeal to authority). but even that fails, because I wanted RCTs, regardless of source.

According to the wiki, RCTs have plenty of their own problems:

So you don't like randomized controlled trials. What experiments/proof can you provide that shows ingestion of colloidal silver can cure, prevent or diagnose a disease? The evidence you presented so far either do do not lead to the aforementioned conclusion, or is purely speculative.

You may, but I do not live in a socially-constructed reality.  My epistemology is based on rational individualism, which does not discount (and indeed exalts) the evidence of the senses:
Would you so kindly explain what "evidence of the senses" is? Is it just anecdotal evidence?

It seems like a larger majority of people on the bitcoin forum are conspiracy theorists than the average group. Feel free to sell your wares, I have no reason to stop you, everyone on here has probably made up their minds on how logical this all is and sometimes the things the majority believe in IS untrue and these small miracles make a difference, but in my mind this is another worthless cure-all and I don't want people to get their hopes up.

Would you so kindly explain what "evidence of the senses" is? Is it just anecdotal evidence?

Great example of my point, thanks.  I know, from experience and observation, that aloe makes my sunburn better.  I didn't need the validation from statistical evidence provided by RCTs.  Some less independent herd-minded people do, because they live in a world filled with fear, uncertainty, and doubt (but that's their problem).
Quote
Although claimed to be effective, Aloe vera has not been proven to offer protection for humans from sunburn, suntan, or other damage from the sun.  In studies on mice, aloe vera polysaccharides preserved the number and morphology of immunosuppressive and dendritic cells in skin damaged by ultraviolet exposure.

RCTs are great for establishing aloe's method(s?)/agent(s?) of action, but it would be silly to suffer needlessly waiting decades for their results when relief can be provided immediately.

My main concern is with my own utility, not establishing some kind of Grand Truth about samples of large numbers of people or mice.

Evidence of the senses is a form of empirical evidence.  A first-hand account is a form of primary evidence.  RCTs are secondary sources.

Anecdotes are stories you hear from others.  If you're unfamiliar with Objectivist epistemology you should read Kelly's above quoted book.

Quote
Undecided  grue: "Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?"  (argumentum ad auctoritatem,  epistemological Methodism, Fundamentalist Denialism)

 Cool  iCEBREAKER: "You don't need a weatherman to tell which way the wind blows."  (Endoxa, Sensus communis, Epistemological particularism)

Quote
Objectivist epistemology begins with the principle that "consciousness is identification". This is understood to be a direct consequence of the metaphysical principle that "existence is identity."[17] Rand defined "reason" as "the faculty that identifies and integrates the material provided by man's senses."[18] Says Rand, "The fundamental concept of method, the one on which all the others depend, is logic. The distinguishing characteristic of logic (the art of non-contradictory identification) indicates the nature of the actions (actions of consciousness required to achieve a correct identification) and their goal (knowledge)—while omitting the length, complexity or specific steps of the process of logical inference, as well as the nature of the particular cognitive problem involved in any given instance of using logic."[19]

According to Rand, consciousness possesses a specific and finite identity, just like everything else that exists; therefore, it must operate by a specific method of validation. An item of knowledge cannot be "disqualified" by being arrived at by a specific process in a particular form. Thus, for Rand, the fact that consciousness must itself possess identity implies the rejection of both universal skepticism based on the "limits" of consciousness, as well as any claim to revelation, emotion or faith based belief.

Objectivist epistemology maintains that all knowledge is ultimately based on perception. "Percepts, not sensations, are the given, the self-evident."[20] Rand considered the validity of the senses to be axiomatic, and claimed that purported arguments to the contrary all commit the fallacy of the "stolen concept"[21] by presupposing the validity of concepts that, in turn, presuppose the validity of the senses.[22] She held that perception, being physiologically determined, is incapable of error. For example, Optical illusions are errors in the conceptual identification of what is seen, not errors in sight itself.[23] The validity of sense perception, therefore, is not susceptible to proof (because it is presupposed by all proof as proof is only a matter of adducing sensory evidence) nor should its validity be denied (since the conceptual tools one would have to use to do this are derived from sensory data). Perceptual error, therefore, is not possible. Rand consequently rejected epistemological skepticism, as she holds that the skeptics' claim to knowledge "undistorted" by the form or the means of perception is impossible.

so your logic is: I got sunburn, put on aloe, and now sunburn is better. therefore, aloe heals my sunburn faster. if you had any critical thinking skills, you will see there are tons of biases and variables that you're not accounting for. for all i know, it could be placebo, or your skin healing naturally.

RCTs are great for establishing aloe's method(s?)/agent(s?) of action, but it would be silly to suffer needlessly waiting decades for their results when relief can be provided immediately.
the problem is that studies has not shown that aloe vera aids in skin healing. if aloe vera really did help to heal skin, the results should be reproducible.

Evidence of the senses is a form of empirical evidence.  A first-hand account is a form of primary evidence.  RCTs are secondary sources.
there's nothing wrong with empirical evidence you collected yourself. however, unless the evidence was collected from many sources and in a controlled environment, the result will be subject to bias. i, along with a overwhelming majority of the scientific community prefer RCTs because they were done in a controlled environment, with a large sample group, and conducted in a way to minimize biases.

Anecdotes are stories you hear from others.  If you're unfamiliar with Objectivist epistemology you should read Kelly's above quoted book.

You should make a video of yourself doing the milk test with your colloidal silver that would be really interesting.

You take 2 glasses of milk, put a tablespoon of colloidal silver in one, and nothing in the other, and leave them out of the fridge.

one goes bad quick and the other doesn't. guess which one doesn't Wink

search "colloidal silver milk test" on youtube!

Sounds like a good fun experiment but it's not necessary because others have already done it, and silver coins have been used to keep water/milk fresh since forever.

Why are you just staring at this? Just send it! 1MHZjADM41ttjbPUiTPYWGYGm45XLf8ZeS

My logic is "if it works, don't fix it."  IDC about the theoretical hobgoblins (bias, variables, and placebos, OH MY!) you're so worried about enough to let them reduce my quality of life.

If you were capable of rational mentation by form and could understand Rand's Objectivist epistemology, it would be obvious that the evidence of the senses does not require external validation from some collectivist consensus reality predicated on shaky RCTs with their own litany of intrinsic defects (bias, variables, and placebos, OH MY!).

I don't need to know everything about the chemistry of partially acetylated mannan polysaccharides and biological activities of veracylglucan C to simply use aloe effectively.  Just like Hippocrates didn't need to understand the oligodynamic effect when he discussed the use of silver in wound care.

I already read the wiki page on evidence, but will nevertheless continue to maximize my own utility without regard for data describing more general circumstances.  It was mostly a review (I received passing grades in both Philosophy of Science and Theory of Knowledge).

Such data are suspect for many reasons, as illustrated by the problems with obtaining a standardized aloe extract:


Quote
It has been claimed that the polysaccharides in A. vera gel have therapeutic properties such as
immunostimulation, anti-inflammatory effects, wound healing, promotion of radiation damage repair,
anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-diabetic and anti-neoplastic activities, stimulation of
hematopoiesis and anti-oxidant effects [4,7,38].

On the other hand, there are a number of clinical reports that have found A. vera gel not effective in
terms of the above mentioned therapeutic activities or even to cause undesirable effects such as
retardation of wound healing. As mentioned before, these conflicting results could be due to the use of
plants from different locations with variations in their chemical composition and also because of
different isolation techniques that were used to extract compounds from the aloe leaf pulp.


The importance of why the specific compounds that were isolated from a plant and then tested in a
particular bioassay should be known can be demonstrated by the potential antagonistic and competitive
activities between constituents. When the two maloylglucans, namely veracylglucan B and C, were
each individually evaluated for biological activities it was found that veracylglucan B demonstrated
high anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferation effects, while veracylglucan C exhibited significant cell
proliferative and anti-inflammatory activities. Therefore, if A. vera gel is tested in a wound healing
experiment and it contains high amounts of veracylglucan B and is perhaps also contaminated with
anthraquinones from the exudate, it will most probably result in retardation of wound healing. If the
gel is obtained from a plant with higher concentrations of veracylglucan C, it would probably end in
positive wound healing results
[23].

Furthermore, the polysaccharides found in aloe gel are not stable, especially under stress conditions
such as heat, the presence of acid and enzymatic activities. It has been suggested that a standardised
method is necessary for production of aloe gel products to avoid degradation of the polysaccharides
and thereby preventing the removal of high molecular weight molecules. This standardised and
consistent production process is vital for preserving the natural biological activity of the aloe gel
[39].

^^This is why it is unreasonable for you to demand I (Capital P) Prove in some absurdly specific manner (RCTs) that the particular aloe plant growing in my particular grandmother's particular garden really did ameliorate the sunburn on my particular skin when applied freshly squeezed from a particular living leaf.

Thank you for your relentless interest in Sacred Silver, the only colloidal silver produced exclusively for the Bitcoin community.   Smiley

Your opinion, no matter how ill-informed and calcified, is important to us because we appreciate any opportunity to address the easily dispelled canards commonly regurgitated when on the strangely polarizing subject of tiny amounts of nanometer scale silver particles floating in distilled water.

750ml bottle, 10 parts per million.


Process  
   Sacred Silver is made only after midnight, when solar interference is at a minimum.
   Sacred Silver is made underground in a dark, empty room with no other sources of electrical fields.
   Sacred Silver is made in the presence of an amethyst and silver based orgonite positive energy generator.
   Sacred Silver contains only distilled water and silver.  No salt, protein, or other additives are ever used.


For the first part, at least have the products you claim to be beneficial in your product, Why pay you .25 BTC for probably less then a cent of pure silver at market price.

If it's because of your process, Pretty sure that the silver is gonna come into contact with electric and magnetic fields before you put it in water. and even then everything you've posted doesn't mention this abstract process.

Silver DOES have medical applications, I've gotten cisplatin which contains the heavy metal platinum, but don't pick and choose what benefits it has against when other research says it's a placebo, especially at 10 ppm considering thats basically homeopathy of silver.

More power to you if you wanna take silver compounds, I can't stop you, but at least get it from someone who sells it at not insane prices, your literally making 98% profit

My colloid generator, including silver electrodes and PPM/TDS meter, cost over $200.  I just payed almost $29 to ship the first order, and so will have to raise the price.

You obviously didn't bother making even a cursory effort to look at the market for colloidal silver before hitting 'reply' and proceeding to yammer about things about which you know absolutely nothing.  Allow me to dispel your knee-jerk objections and half-witted irrelevancies.

The cheapest CS on Amazon is about $1.31/oz: http://www.amazon.com/Silverbiotics-American-Biotech-Labs-Biotics/dp/B009D0WBWI/

Sacred Silver was originally $1.14/oz and is now $1.34/oz.  My single bottle price matches (and in bulk, beats) the best on Amazon, so it's idiotic to call them "insane" (unless you mean 'insanely low').

Cisplatin has terrible side effects and is not made with silver.  Why would you even bring it up?  Do you not understand that silver and platinum are entirely different elements?

Colloidal silver works because of the oligodynamic effect and has nothing to do with homeopathy.  For homeopathy, nominal dilution is one part in a million.  Sacred Silver is 10 parts per million.  Are you really too retarded to understand the difference between science and quackery?

I am not "literally making 98% profit."  You are a liar and a buffoon.  I made almost nothing from my first order and now have to raise the price by $5 to make it worthwhile.

Thank you for your interest in Sacred Silver, the first colloidal silver produced exclusively for the Bitcoin community.

We regret that while colloidal silver destroys nearly all pathogens (fungal, viral, bacterial), it unfortunately cannot cure your blithering ignorance.   Wink

To address your homeopathy claims, it is common for an agent in homeopathy to be 10 ppm, anything from 1 part per hundred to 1 part per googol isn't unheard of. I'm kind of surprised you believe in the science of colloidal silver and not homeopathy.

For the claim it's been used for a hundred years, so have many other unsafe drugs or ineffective drugs, that is until modern medicine had come along and proven that silver used back then was dangerous. Why else would the medical community stop using it back then if it was so good at what you claim it does?

All of the medical benefits you speak of are incredibly vague. When people refute you, you say it works for yourself and their research isn't credible (even though it is.) When EVERY point you have made has been "eh, it works for me and my friends" and if you try to bring cherry picked reviews for people hailing it as a miracle cure, I'm sure you'll find a significant number saying it does nothing (But to be fair, calling water a miracle cure does have benefits as a placebo, so it's a total lie to say it has no benefits, it's just profiting you more than the people suffering considering you can just give them tap water and have them make the same claims). If you're saying that the scientific method isn't a reliable approach and that we should trust some random strangers we don't know against the very significant amount of medical data that at least tries to post some information, than I really can't take you seriously.

The reason i brought up cisplatin is that it is similar to silver in the sense that it kills cells indiscriminately (cisplatin is better because it targets cancer cells to a higher degree). silver gold and platinum have no reason to be in the body and you can be healthy without consuming any of them, but I realize I was wrong with my assessment that it was a heavy metal. To be honest cisplatin saved my life and it really irritates me when I hear people talk about some miracle drug no one wants to publish because it's a big conspiracy. If silver had a REAL clinical use, however small, it'd be given fast track drug status like many other drugs have. What do you think the FDA exists for? There's a reason you can't market this as having and medical benefits, a la Intended for ceremonial and/or religious use only.

It cost you $200 dollars for a machine that allows you to sell water with trace amounts of elemental silver. This machine can probably make gallons of silver water for about 2 cents an ounce. once you sell 7 orders you've made a profit and can continue to sell at the astronomical margin of about 98%. (6 orders now that you intend to raise the price!) Also a quick note $59 for three.  $15 each in a 6 pack. so for 1 dollar more I can get 6 bottles??

The bulk order one slays me. Just because other people rip consumers off doesn't mean you have the right to. for the price of 3 of your products, you can buy a machine that does it for you, and after you've consumed them, you can make more for pennies. (I wouldn't even mind you selling that since it isn't just indistinguishable from water without the use of specialized equipment.)

What I think happened was that you had a business idea to buy a machine that returns its investment nearly instantly (after 6 orders) and that it's literally a cash cow after. I just want to see more legitimate btc businesses than people selling distilled water.

It's very obvious that you only care about selling your product, but if you are a potential buyer and aren't swayed by any medical evidence that shows it kills nearly all microorganisms that make up your body (leading to its discontinuation decades ago). and you INSIST on using it, at least make it yourself to ensure quality and if you plan on doing so for prolonged periods of time.

Also, can you explain what any of this garbage means?
