  • What is Ionic Silver?
    HealthWest Ionic Silver is positively charged microscopic pure silver particles suspended in water. The positively charged particles remain suspended in water because the particles repel each other with a greater force than gravity. It is an effective germicidal that it lethal to over 650 disease-causing bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and other new strains of bacteria classified as MDR (Multiple Drug Resistant). HealthWest Ionic Silver is rapidly making Colloidal Silver obsolete because it has all the antimicrobial properties of Colloidal Silver but without the metal.
  • What is the medical uses of silver?
    Silver has the ability to combine with oxygen onto the surface of silver ions in solution which reacts with the sulfhydryl (-S-H) groups surrounding the surface of bacteria or viruses. Any negative charge presented by the organism's membrane proteins can be deactivated by the positively charged silver ions. The reaction blocks the life-preserving cellular process known as cellular respiration and causing the bacteria to die. (Reference: Richard Davies and Samuel Etris of The Silver Institute, in a 1996 monograph entitled The Development and Functions of Silver in Water Purification and Disease Control, discuss three mechanisms of deactivation that silver utilises to incapacitate disease causing organisms. They are Catalytic Oxidation, Reaction with Cell Membranes, and Binding with the DNA of disease organisms to prevent unwinding.)
  • What is the ingredient in HealthWest products?
    Positively charged Silver Ions 16-20 PPM (parts per million) Pure distilled water (Does not contain any inert silver colloids)
  • How is Healthwest Ionic SIlver different?
    Does Ionic Silver bind with chloride in the body and become inert? Colloidal silver is composed of both silver metal particles (colloids) and charged silver ions. According to the manufacturers of Colloidal Silver, it is a matter of ratio. By that, it is implied that if a product has a greater percentage of silver in the elemental or colloidal form it is Colloidal Silver, and if most of the of silver is in the ionic form, then that is called Ionic Silver. This can be confusing because both products are actually Colloidal Silver with different ratios between ions and particles. This is their theory: ​ As soon as the charged silver ions come into contact with the salts in your body, they lose their charge, form an insoluble silver salt and can no longer kill bacteria. However, the tiny pieces of metal (colloids) in Colloidal Silver are not affected by the body salts and so they can go on to kill bacteria”. This is inaccurate because science has conclusively proven that it is the charged silver ions that have anti-microbial properties and not the inert metal (Colloids). Rice university proved this in 2012 with the statement ‘Ions, not particles, make silver toxic to bacteria’ So, the question of whether it is the silver ions or the colloids (particles of silver metal) in Colloidal Silver that kill germs, has now finally been settled. ​ Healthwest has set a new standard in the making of Ionic Silver and for over 20 years has been manufacturing this unique product with world-wide sales and proven efficacy.
  • Are there any dangers or side effects?
    Like anything else, if used sensibly, it is completely non-toxic and will not harm the immune system in any way. Critics of Ionic Silver products will often warn that the consumption of Ionic silver might lead to Argyria, (a bluish and grey discolouration of the skin). According to Dr Bob Beck who indicated that Argyria is caused by silver compounds, such as silver nitrate, silver sulfate, silver sulfadiazine, etc., and not microparticles of pure elemental silver. Apparently, silver colloids are mostly absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract, since colloidal silver does not seem to adversely affect friendly bacteria in the lower intestines. Please refer to the HealthWest Safety Data Report. (PDF).
  • How should one use Ionic Silver?
    HealthWest Ionic Silver products may be taken orally or topically for wound care, skin health, pink eye, ear infections, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, sinusitis, cold, flu, pneumonia, etc.
  • What is the dosage for HealthWest Ionic Silver?
    Acute conditions: Adults: 20-30ml hourly | Children (under 12) 10-15ml hourly When condition improves for a further 3 days: Adults: 20-30ml twice daily | Children (under12) 10ml twice daily As a preventive: Adults: 10-20ml twice daily | Children (under12) 10ml twice daily
  • What is a Tyndall test?
    When a laser is shone through a liquid other than distilled water, a path of light can be seen as similar to when you shine a torch through smoke or fog. All colloidal silvers will show this path of light as the laser beam refracts light off the metal particles contained within the liquid. This test will show the difference between HealthWest Pure Ionic Silver and Colloidal Silver. It demonstrates that HealthWest Pure Ionic Silver does not contain any metal, colloids or Nanoparticles.
  • What is Fulvic Acid?
    If you only ever take one health supplement in your life, Fulvic Acid is the one. Fulvic Acid serves as an essential vehicle that carries vitamins and nutrients to the right places in our body. This is just one of its properties that provide Fulvic Acid with the ability to have such a dramatic impact on our health. Fulvic Acid is recognized for its ability to balance and energize cell life and biological processes and literally transforms minerals and other nutrients into minute molecules. Nutrient uptake is more efficient because of Fulvic Acid. With better nutrient uptake, cell respiration and energy production increase, helping to bring the body back to full function. ✔ Alkalises the body faster than any other natural health product on earth ✔ Increases energy levels and improves concentration ✔ Increases mental clarity ✔ Increased sense of well-being ✔ Protects against free radical damage ✔ The Ultimate in Anti-Aging ✔ Balances, restores and rejuvenates cell life ✔ Increases endurance ✔ Acts as a catalyst for enzymatic reactions ✔ Assimilates vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from food or supplement intake ✔ Complexes nutrients into smaller particle sizes (lowers the molecular weight of nutrients) ✔ Provides vital electrolytes
