WHAT IS LUNAR SILVER | article by Mel Ve | As the creator of the range for Algarvian.Life, I get the most questions about one particular product, and that is our LUNAR SILVER. In fact, it always amazes me just how mainstream education and media has gone to great lengths to push the pharmaceutical narrative, rather than giving homage to ancient remedies that have been around for thousands of years. Algarvian.Life‘s LUNAR SILVER is probably one of our most versatile holistic product renderings, yet, there is still a vast lack of knowledge and some confusion about this amazingly effective ancient remedy, which should be in every home, if not, every handbag. Although this ancient remedy has been known for thousands of years, it is seemingly one of the best kept secrets with regards to healing and health. In fact, once grasped in totality, this information will transform how you approach medicine and healing.
WHAT IS SILVER?
Silver is a chemical element with the symbol Ag, which is taken from the Latin word ‘argentum’ with the atomic number 47. It is a soft, white, shiny metal that exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal. SILVER is found in the Earth’s crust in the pure, free elemental form known as “native silver, or as an alloy mixed in with gold and other metals and minerals. Most silver is produced as a byproduct of copper, gold, lead and zinc refining. SILVER is similar in its physical and chemical properties, to its two vertical neighbours in group 11 of the periodic table, being copper and gold. Silver has been valued as a precious metal for millennia, and is often used in many bullion coins, sometimes alongside gold. Whilst more abundant than gold, it is less abundant as a native metal. It is often used in jewellery, ornaments, high-value tableware and utensils (hence the term silverware), solar panels, water filtration, electrical contacts and conductors. It’s versatile compounds are used in many different ways including in photographic and x-ray film.
WHAT IS COLLOIDAL SILVER?
To put it simply, COLLOIDAL SILVER is a low concentration of very small particles of silver suspended in pure water. The silver particles are diffused into the water via a process of low voltage electrolysis.
SILVER IS A MICROBIOCIDE
One of the most important aspects of silver, and indeed the most relevant for treatment purposes, is the usage of silver as a microbiocide. Historically in mainstream industrial medical practice, silver is added to bandages, wound dressings, catheters and other medical instruments, with the purpose of acting as a non toxic, non-abrasive disinfectant. But before we get into this aspect of silver, I thought it perhaps best to explain how I came to be an advocate of SILVER for medicinal treatment purposes.

WHAT IS LUNAR SILVER?
LUNAR SILVER differs from standard Colloidal Silver in how and when it is made. In Alchemy, silver is regarded as a lunar metal, as it corresponds with the Moon. When rendering a batch of healing Colloidal Silver, the phases of the moon during which the Colloidal Silver is rendered, will create differing properties within the Colloidal Silver. The differing moon phases during the Colloidal Silver is rendered, is most noticeable in the differing colours that the Colloidal Silver elixirs take on during differing phases of the lunar cycle. Colour hues of the elixirs can range from being transparent to cloudy / milky white, pink, purple, blue, amber, greyish or even black. Typically, the most concentrated Colloidal Silver elixirs are brewed on the Full Moon, with the three / four annual Super Moons rendering the most concentrated LUNAR SILVER elixirs i.e. more Parts of silver Per Million (PPM). The bigger and closer the moon is, the more silver dissolves into the water during the rendering process, hence why the three annual Super Moons render the most concentrated batches of LUNAR SILVER.
It beggars belief as to how mainstream education and media has gone to great lengths to push the Modern Industrial Medicine narrative, rather than giving homage to ancient remedies that have been around for thousands of years. Indeed, silver has been used as an antimicrobial since antiquity. Silver disrupts multiple bacterial cellular processes, including disulfide bond formation, metabolism, and iron homeostasis. These changes lead to increased production of reactive oxygen species, and increased membrane permeability of harmful microbes, bacteria and pathogenic and predatory micro-organisms, which in effect results in the death of pathogenic microbes, without harming the rest of the body. In ancient Egypt and Greece, water was kept in silver urns, as it was known, even back then, that these silver urns kept the water fresh, as no bacteria would form within the silver urn, which would normally cause water to go stagnant. In the Victorian Era, it was commonly acknowledged that sucking on a silver spoon could erradicate symptoms associated with colds. It was commonly known by by dairy farmers, that putting a pure silver coin into milk, stopped it from going sour, as the silver coin inhibited the growth of bacteria that would cause the milk to ferment and spoil. In fact, the legendary power of silver is chronicled in mythological accounts, as a deterrent for predators such as werewolves and vampires.
Probably one of our most versatile holistic product renderings, there is still a vast lack of knowledge about this amazingly effective ancient remedy, which should be in every home, if not, every handbag, cosmetics bag, suitcase, lunch box and office desk drawer. Through many occasions of emergency, I have come to know the power of this amazing remedy, which can be used to treat any infection on the body, both internal and external. LUNAR SILVER can be used as a natural way of treating my animals, by pouring the clear and relatively tasteless elixir, into their drinking water, which helps to treat and protect animals from inflammation, infections and many diseases. It is safe to use on animals and children, and is easily consumed due to the fact that it is relatively tasteless. LUNAR SILVER can be used as an all purpose disinfectant, replacing harsh, abrasive, toxic chemical sanitisers. Hospitals in the UK and in Europe put silver into paint that is used on hospital walls, to aid in stopping the spread of viruses and communicable diseases. Once silver is coated onto a surface, it’s effectiveness does not diminish, as it acts like a protective layer ongoing. LUNAR SILVER can be used to treat conjunctivitis, gum disease, acne, skin and nail fungal infections, bladder, infection, kidney infection, stomach “bugs”, Coronavirus, Tick Bite Fever, Necrotising Fasciitis (flesh eating bacteria) and nearly all viral and bacterial infections. LUNAR SILVER is a natural remedy that would replace all pharmaceutical antibiotics.
LUNAR SILVER is extremely effective as a hand sanitiser, and in fact, is far more effective than alcohol rubs, which have the tendency to dehydrate the skin, causing microscopic fissures on the skin’s surface as it evaporates, which is where bacteria breeds and accumulates, thus making it rather counter productive to the purpose of the usage of alcohol rubs, which is to disinfect from bacteria, not to incubate it in cracks on the skin, which is what happens with alcohol rubs. Furthermore, in order for alcohol rubs to disinfect hands, it needs to be applied repeatedly, as it is only effective before it evaporates. LUNAR SILVER on the other hand coats the hands with a protective layer of silver particles, which will continue to act as a protective barrier against germs / bacteria / viruses for several days after application*. The effectiveness of the application of LUNAR SILVER, does not diminish the moment it evaporates. Unlike alcohol rubs, LUNAR SILVER is kinder on the skin, being non abrasive, tasteless and odourless.
*Silver particles remain on skin until rubbed off, washed off, or falls off due to continual skin cell renewal.
MY BACKGROUND IN ALCHEMY & NATUROPATHICS
Like many people who go through a typical institutionalised education process, I too was subject to dogma and indoctrination, which imbued in me the belief that so-called western or mainstream medicine, the kind that is largely driven by pharmaceutical companies and their profit margin, was the most advanced form of medicine available, because indeed, we are supposedly on the cutting edge of progression, human evolution, and technological advancement. Or at least, that is what my education / indoctrination had led me to believe for the first 30 years of my life. My mother used to tell me that I was lucky to be brought up in a home where access to doctors and medical treatment was never an issue, and like many, I put unquestionable amounts of faith into western medicine and the breed of doctors and allopathic practitioners that came from University based medical schools. To this very day, my immediate family still believe in the virtues of modern / western medicine. Indeed, for a great proportion of my life, I believed that mainstream medicine is the dominant and original form of medicine. However, this is untrue. In fact, natural based medicines are the majority of medicine world wide. In fact, mainstream / western medicine only originated in the last century, specifically after the second World War. Before then, what we consider as scientific medicine, did not exist. What most people think of as modern medicine, revolves around hospitals and pharmaceutical treatments. This does not include surgery, which is a practice that goes back thousands of years, and is included in all alternative systems of medicine. Surgery benefitted from some of the results of Modern Industrial Medicine, such as anaesthetic, but in reality, surgical treatments have been a practice that has ensued for thousands of years.
THE GREAT MEDICAL DIVIDE
There are two distinct sides to medicine, health / healing, or two “camps” if you like. On one side is Modern Industrialised Medicine, which is based on an industrial model that originates in the so-called “scientific approach” of the post World War II era of scientific development.
On the other side are much older forms of medicine. An example of this is Ayurveda, which originated thousands of years ago in India. Another well known example of older and more traditional medicines is that of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These have histories and success stories that go back thousands of years, and are still recognised, practiced forms of medicine.
In the west, we are mostly familiar with Modern Industrial Medicine. When one is unwell, you visit the doctor, who is the gatekeeper through the Modern Industrial Medicine system. We put unquestionable amounts of faith into the diagnosis of the doctor, who tells you what is wrong with you, and how to treat it, whilst using only the treatments within the system of Modern Industrial Medicine.
IN BUSINESS WITH DISEASE
The system of Modern Industrial Medicine is nothing more than a business. Very large sums of money pass through the system, even the national health systems of a nation, which gets paid via taxation. Indeed, the system of Modern Industrial Medicine is not much more than a commercial enterprise, which uses all the usual tactics, to protect its near monopoly over human health, such as disparaging anything which is outside its model. This model is heavy on diagnostics, lots of machines, tests, and pharmaceutical drugs. Very large sums of money pass through this system, and all the usual rules of commerce apply. There are many vested interests who see the patient more in terms of a customer, than a suffering individual. If this is hard for you to fathom, consider this for one moment:
How does it financially benefit the Modern Medical Industry to have only healthy people about?
The answer is simple:
It does not benefit them at all. A healthy population is of absolutely no benefit to Modern Medical Industry and the big pharmaceutical companies. Their focus is disease, not health. Indeed, the Modern Industrial Medical system, also henceforth referenced as “Big Pharma” are in business with disease. A healthy person / population does not make them money.
A BALANCED PERSPECTIVE
To be fair, there are useful aspects of the Modern Industrial Medical system, and many good people within that system. Some of the pharmaceuticals are useful, such as anaesthesia and analgesia. I personally am not against all mainstream medicine, as I try to remain objective about what is most useful for the individual patient in their particular circumstance. I also always advise anybody who has been taking pharmaceutical medication for a long period of time, to consult a Naturopathic Practitioner, before giving up your pharmaceutical drugs completely.
On the other side of the Great Medical Divide are the so called Alternative Medical Practitioners. On this side, all the disciplines and practices have a long history, and did not suddenly come into being after World War II. Alternative Medicine and therapies have a proven effect on the disease state, with a philosophy of treating the underlying cause of illness / disease, rather than the symptoms of said illness / disease, which is where the focus of the Modern Industrial Medical system lies, in treating the symptoms, not the cause, which is a very profitable model, as the root cause is never tackled, and thus the illness is never truly healed, thus symptoms will always present themselves, and said symptoms are then the aspect of illness / disease, that is treated by Modern Industrial Medicine.
ALTERNATIVE IS AFFORDABLE
Another very relevant point regarding Alternative Medicine is that there is no big money to be made. Alternative Medicine is affordable and accessible to the vast majority of people. Ancient and traditional systems of medicine originated in parts of the world such as China and India, where the vast majority of people simply cannot afford expensive modern medicine, and thus the only option they have is to seek out ancient traditional remedies and treatments, which are often far more effective than their modern counterparts of the pharmaceutical age.
CRITICISM FROM THE MODERN MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT
Due to the fact that SILVER is an naturally occurring substance on the Periodic Table of Elements, and thus not a compound or synthetic manufactured substance, it cannot be patented! The Modern Industrial Medical industry thrives on the patent system, which also allows for very high pricing on drugs and treatments, that they develop and test in laboratories. Due to the fact that SILVER is not a patentable product, rather a naturally occurring resource (nobody had to develop it in a laboratory) there is not much money to be made from the silver remedies. Instead, the mainstream medical establishment, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have gone out of their way to suppress SILVER remedies, even though the microbicidal qualities of silver are well known and documented, and are in fact still in use within the modern medical establishment. In fact, the various governing bodies that make up the Modern Industrial Medical establishment, will routinely publish information about the side effects of using Colloidal Silver remedies.
IS SILVER SAFE FOR CONSUMPTION?
Silver is perfectly edible and harmless to us once consumed. In fact, there is an ancient tradition of using silver and gold foils, known as Vark or Varaka, to decorate food originated from the ancient Ayurvedic practice of using precious metals in healing foods. Varaka is mentioned in several ancient Sanskrit documents, particularly in Ayurvedic and medical literature. The word varaka is mentioned with swarna (gold), tara (silver) or rupera (silver) in these documents; the discussion is in three forms of these precious metals: patra (leaf), varaka (thin foil) and bhasma (ash). Ayurvedic documents consider silver as an antimicrobial astringent, while gold is claimed to be an aphrodisiac. This is not unique to Indian subcontinent. In Europe, edible gold and silver were also claimed to have medicinal properties, and later studies found that they can indeed be antibacterial owing to the oligodynamic effect.
There are only two known side effects of using Colloidal Silver:
The first being that silver can inhibit the absorption of certain antibiotics and thyroid medication.
The second known side effect is Argyria, which happens when silver builds up in the body’s tissue, causing a bluish-gray discolouration of the skin, especially if exposed to sunlight. However, one needs to consume very large amounts of silver (several litres a day) before this happens. Argyria is not life threatening, but can be irreversible, however there have been cases of of Argyria being reversed by deep tissue cleansing / detoxification.
Compared with the vast list of side effects of antibiotics and many pharmaceutical drugs on the market, most of which are approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Colloidal Silver is in fact far safer than the majority of modern mainstream medicine equivalents that are produced by the pharmaceutical industry.
According to Peter C. Gotzsche MD, Director of the Nordic Cochran Centre in Copenhagen, and Professor of research design and analysis at the University of Copenhagen, prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. In America alone, prescription drugs kill over 200,000 people every year, whilst doing exactly what their doctors told them to do. For this reason, many people are exploring ways to approach their health in a more holistic way, as opposed to using allopathic modern medicines, which can be very expensive, not to mention the fatal side effects.
The safer and more naturally derived a remedy is, the more it gets discredited by the Modern Industrial Medicine mafia. This is an important point to recognise if you are doing your own research into LUNAR SILVER. The Food and Drug Administration do not endorse the silver as a microbiocide, despite the fact that silver is commonly used in mainstream medicine practices, has been used for thousands of years before the invention of drugs, antibiotics and toxic, chemical based disinfectants.
