Colloidals are the smallest particles that matter can be divided into while still keeping its individual characteristics, without going atomic, becoming an ion and locked into an inactive sulphate, oxide, chloride or fluoride molecule. They are nanoparticles in permanent suspension because of the Zeta Potential electrical charge (up to 60 millivolts), on each particle causing mutual repulsion, preventing aggregation into large ineffective particles. Ions have a much smaller charge which rapidly becomes neutralized in the body.
The smallest nanoparticles come from the largest electrodes, with the largest area, such as our 2” x 6” sheets, with area = 12 sq inches. This is why we never use wires or rods. A rod of length H= 6” of #12 gauge has a diameter of D= 0.081” (2 mm) which has a surface area of only ?DH = 3×0.08×6 = 1.44 sq inches. Nanoparticle size is directly dependent on Current Density = milliamperes per square inch of area. This means that if current is too large or area too small, then the electrodes will be overdriven producing large ineffective particles and ions.
The more effective nano-particles range in size from less than 1 nanometer to 10 nanometers, which is 30-60 times smaller than the wavelength of light (300-600 nm). Consequently they cannot be seen with any light microscope and will not give a Tyndall Effect using a laser beam. If there is a colour or Tyndall, then those particles are too large to be fully effective against the small more dangerous viruses which cause neurological damage. The small size gives colloidal minerals enormous surface area, and special properties of absorption for the human or animal body, as opposed to rock and shell based minerals, which are always combined with some other radical, such as in oxides, and have no Zeta Potential charge. Dr Joel Wallach says “One teaspoon of colloidals can have a total surface area of over 127 acres”.
Electrical Charge (Zeta Potential)
Because of our proprietary technology, which includes magnetic vortex, high frequencies, current control, alternating polarity, our nanoparticles have been measured to carry a very high Zeta Potential electrical charge of 60 millivolts.
According to Wikipedia this potential is in the highest range to ensure excellent
long-term stability. Look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeta_potential
Absorption and Excretion:
Superior absorption is another characteristic of colloids, since the finely divided colloidal particles having a large surface area exposed to interact with our cells and still able to penetrate the Blood-Brain Barrier. Excretion of colloidal nanoparticles is all too rapid, so that ingestion should be done on a daily basis.
According to Dr Joel Wallach ”Colloidal minerals are truly the most efficient way to get your minerals. You can absorb 98% of them. They are liquid. They have a small particle size. To give you a comparison: a red blood cell is 7 microns. A colloidal mineral particle is 0.01 micron (or less): that is 1/7000th the size of a red blood cell. Minerals move around in our bodies through our blood, and we store minerals in our cells. The small size of colloidal minerals is ideal. The electrical charge means they stay in solution or suspension- they don’t settle out. They are very absorbable. Instead of having to break down bulky, compressed tablets or gelatin capsules, the body can immediately go to work using your self-made colloidal minerals. Which will not interfere with any other supplemental or therapeutic program. Instead, they assist any and all diets, medication or herbs to work faster and more efficiently”. At www.wallachonline.com
Viruses play a role in causing some cancers and may be responsible in Alzheimers, MS, Parkinsons, Diabetes, Chronic fatigue (Epstein-Barr Virus), Mononucleosis. They can be so small as to enter and infect bacteria. Even smaller, <20 nm, are the Prions which cause Mad Cow Disease and possibly other brain disorders. There is considerable evidence that silver nanoparticles of less than 10 nanometres are likely to inactivate most viruses and prions.
