A few months ago I heard about a man who’s skin had turned blue! I think I saw his story on television and perhaps in People magazine. Perhaps you heard about Paul Karason too?
He’d apparently suffered from aches and pains for years. Perhaps due to arthritis, and while taking care of his ailing mother he said he began making his own colloidal silver at home. The documentary that I watched made it sound as if one of the side effects of using colloidal silver over a long period of time was that it could turn your skin blue.
The story was big in the media back in February or so and it was apparently a huge case of misinformation. It’s said that he was not really making and using colloidal silver, but an ionic silver solution.
It was the ionic silver solution and his application of it to his skin as well as taking it internally and even going so far as to fix the silver in his body by using a tanning bed that caused him to develop a condition called Argyria. Argyria is a condition where a persons skin turns blue gray in color.
Paul really did believe he was making Colloidal silver, but as I said it’s thought that it was really an ionic silver solution. He made it even more dangerous when he added salt to the mix and concentrated the solution by using electrolysis.
I really don’t know much about Colloidal Silver, but it’s obvious after reading this story that attempting to make it at home could be dangerous. Apparently it’s not even possible to make at home.
Those that take Colloidal Silver use it as an anti-microbial to boost their immune system and to help minimize aches and pains caused by arthritis and other painful conditions
I just found this whole story fascinating when I first heard about it. Can you imagine making a home made solution that turned your skin blue? Perhaps forever! The man is used to being blue, but I imagine he startles a lot of people when he goes out.
