The Steampunk Merkaba Pendant by Special Technique is a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art made from brass and copper. The six pointed star shape represents the Merkaba or Metatron’s cube – one of the fundamental shapes found everywhere in nature. The six points are tattoo machine hardware from Workhorse Irons, the gear is from an old clock, and the red material for the gem is auto tail light material. There is no glue on this piece – it’s entirely brazed together so it will last forever. The ring to hold it on a chain is made from a tattoo needle bar. It took quite a bit of work to get all the brazing right. It’s strong and built to last forever. This pendant is SOLD.
This info was on someone else’s blog. Then someone else removed the info after being hassled by the FDA. I was lucky enough to grab it and pass it on to you before that happened. They got hassled because they sell a colloidal silver maker, and also had medical info on the same site where the silver maker was sold. I guess this is forbidden by the FDA.
What is silver water or colloidal silver?
Colloidal Silver is a solution of extremely fine sub microscopic particles (.015 – .005 microns) of pure silver suspended in water by a positive electric charge on each particle. The particles remain suspended throughout the solution because these positive charged particles repel each other with a greater force than gravity can exert upon. A powerful germicidal, silver is an exceptional metal in that it is non-toxic to the human body, but lethal to over 650 disease causing bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and molds; while conventional pharmaceutical antibiotics are typically effective against only 6 or 7 types of bacteria. Some new strains of bacteria classified as MDR (Multiple Drug Resistant) have proven to be resistant to all pharmaceutical antibiotics, but not to colloidal silver due to different germicidal mechanisms of deactivation.
How does colloidal silver work?
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 utilizes to incapacitate disease causing organisms. They are Catalytic Oxidation, Reaction with Cell Membranes, and Binding with the DNA of disease organisms to prevent unwinding.
Silver, in its atomic state, has the capacity to absorb oxygen and act as a catalyst to bring about oxidation. Atomic (nascent) oxygen absorbed onto the surface of silver ions in solution will readily react with the sulfhydryl (-S-H) groups surrounding the surface of bacteria or viruses to remove the hydrogen atoms (as water), causing the sulfur atoms to form an R-S-S-R bond; blocking respiration and causing the bacteria to expire. Employing a simple catalytic reduction/oxidation reaction, colloidal silver will react with any negative charge presented by the organism’s transport or membrane proteins and deactivate them.
Reaction with Bacterial Cell Membranes:
There is evidence that silver ions attach to membrane surface radicals of bacteria, impairing cell respiration and blocking its energy transfer system. One explanation is based on the nature of enzyme construction: Specific enzymes are required for a given biochemical activity to take place. Enzyme molecules usually require a specific metallic atom as part of the molecular matrix in order to function. A metal of higher valance can replace a metal of lower valance in the enzyme complex, preventing the enzyme from functioning normally. Silver, with a valance of plus 2, can replace many metals with a lower, or equal valance that exhibit weaker atomic bonding properties.
Binding with DNA:
Studies by C.L. Fox and S.M. Modak with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a tenacious bacteria that is difficult to treat, demonstrated that as much as 12% of silver is taken up by the organism’s DNA. While it remains unclear exactly how the silver binds to the DNA without destroying the hydrogen bonds holding the lattice together, it nevertheless prevents the DNA from unwinding, an essential step for cellular replication to occur.
How should one use colloidal silver?
Colloidal Silver may be taken orally or topically; applied directly to the skin. It can be used vaginally, anally, atomized or inhaled into the nose or lungs, and dropped into eyes. Liquid silver as well as new gel formulations, may be applied directly to the skin. A few drops on a Q-Tip or Band-Aid may be used to disinfect any wound or sore. Properly prepared, colloidal silver can also be injected into a muscle, a cancerous tumor, or into the bloodstream.
A extremely conservative approach would be to start with 1 or 3 teaspoons once or twice a day, however colloidal silver is not a posionous substance like drugs are and. therefore dosage is not critical-even for children. For colds and flu symptoms, one or two tablespoons 3-6 times daily frequently will speed recovery. Some individuals have reported drinking as much as 16 ozs in the morning and another 16 ozs in the late afternoon to knock down a cold or flu on the first day that symptoms start showing up. They claim that they have been able to completely abort the cold or flu on the first day of symptoms.
For mouth infections, frequently rinse the affected area for at least 6 minutes before swallowing. Overdosing should not be of concern, even if recommended doses are exceeded. If, after a few days of use, one experiences a de-toxification effect in the form of feeling sluggish or mild aches, increase water consumption to speed the elimination of toxins and taper back the silver dosage to match the rate of toxin elimination. It is safe for pregnant and nursing women and is known to aid the developing fetus in growth. It will not generate free radicals or interfere with enzyme activity. It has no reaction with other medications.
Are there any dangers or side effects?
The Environmental Protection Agency’s Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver. Regular ingestion of colloidal silver can act as a second immune system by assisting the body in the war against invading micro-organisms. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotic which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leaves these tissue cell enzymes intact.
Colloidal Silver, if used sensibly, is completely non-toxic and will not harm the immune system in any way. Critics of colloidal silver will often warn that regular consumption of colloidal silver might lead to Argyria, a bluish/ gray discoloration of the skin. Dr. Bob Beck debunks this statement as a scare tactic by pro pharmaceutical interests. Dr Beck has indicated that Argyria is caused by silver compounds, such as silver nitrate, silver sulfate, silver sulfadiazine, etc., and not micro particles 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. Silver can be toxic to nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, but is normally prevented from entering those areas by the blood-brain barrier. Silver has not demonstrated any evidence of carcinogenic activity.
The body eliminates excess silver via the metallothiones. These ubiquitous proteins, first characterized in 1957, have the property of binding with heavy metals, such as silver, into metal-thiolate-cluster structures which aid in transportation, storage, and elimination of nonessential trace metals which enter the body.
How much research has been done on colloidal silver?
Silver has been used as a germicide for thousands of years. Ancient texts, including Pliny the Elder’s great tome, Natural History, Book 23 (78 A.D.) discusses the extraordinary wound healing capacity of silver slag as an ingredient in plasters. The German obstetrician, Franz Crede, observed in 1884 that up to 79% of blind children in various orphanages and institutions were born to mothers who, at the time of the child’s birth, had venereal disease. He found that a 1% solution of silver nitrate dropped into the eyes of newborns, reduced the incidence of VD caused blindness to less than 0.2%. In 1988, colloidal silver was tested at the UCLA Medical Laboratory.
The UCLA report stated that ” The silver solutions were antibacterial for concentrations of 1 million organisms per ml of Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus [which in now resistant to Vancomycin, the strongest pharmaceutical antibiotic available] , Neisseria gonorrhea, Gardnerella Vaginalis, Salmonella Typhi [responsible for salmonella food poisoning and Typhus], and other enteric pathogens; and fungicidal for Candida albicans [the common yeast infection, in vaginitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome], Candida globata, and M. Furfur.”
Dr Robert Becker, M.D., author of The Body Electric and Crosscurrents found that silver caused cells to dedifferentiate and re-differentiate in the process of regenerative healing.
“What we had actually done was rediscovered the fact that silver killed bacteria, which had been known for centuries…when antibiotics were discovered, clinical uses for silver as an antibiotic were discarded.” Becker said in a 1995 interview with Bio/Tech News.
Dr Becker conducted extensive research into the healing properties of silver for many years at the Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York. The experiments concluded that silver works on a wide range of bacteria, without any known side effects or damage to the cells of the body. Becker discovered that the silver was doing something more than just killing disease causing organisms: He said it was also causing major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Dr. Becker concluded that the presence of the silver ions may help to regenerate tissue, eliminate old or cancerous cells, and other diseased or abnormal tissue conditions.
Dr. Henry Crooks (author, Use of Colloids in Health Disease) found that silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. From his bacteriological experiments with silver he concluded, “I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes.”
Dr. Bjorn Nordenstrom, of the Larolinska Institute, Sweden, has successfully used silver as a component in his cancer treatments for many years. Dr. Leonard Keene Hirschberg, A. M., M. D. (John Hopkins) states, “Speaking generally, the colloidal metals are especially remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states.” Dr. Richard L. Davies, executive director of the Silver Institute, which monitors silver technology in 37 countries, reports: “In four years we’ve described 87 important new medical uses for silver. We’re just beginning to see to what extent silver can relieve suffering.”
Finally, Peter Lindemann reports in his 1997 article, Colloidal Silver, A Closer Look that a study conducted in part by the Institute of Microbiology in Rome, Italy and published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology (Dec. 1992), stated that “Pure electro-colloidal silver out- performed silver nitrate, silver chloride, and silver sulfadiazine as a broad spectrum germicide. For all classes of bacteria, fungus, and mold samples tested, pure electro-colloidal silver worked better, and at much lower concentrations. They concluded that any additives reduced the effectiveness of the pure silver ion; the silver salts being as much as 100 times less effective.”
What is the FDA’s standpoint on colloidal silver?
Since colloidal silver was in common use as an antibiotic prior to 1938 when the FDA was created, its use was grandfathered-in and not subject to FDA approval. Many promoters of colloidal silver had ballyhooed a 1991 letter authored by the FDA which they said (at the time) that they would not attempt to control colloidal silver as long as its uses were confined to pre 1938 published protocols. However, the growing popularity of colloidal since 1991, has created pressure from threatened pharmaceutical interests to get the FDA to regulate the availability of colloidal silver.[Update: Feb 2001 the FDA now claims jurisdiction over the sale of colloidal silver and will not allow any "medical claims" be made in association with the sale of colloidal silver.]
As a result, today the FDA is attempting to subvert the grandfather clause and is seeking to gain approval status over the use and production of colloidal silver on the outrageous premise that since colloidal silver has proven to be such an effective broad spectrum germ fighter in its ability to cure new strains of bacteria (not in existence in 1938), that its use should be subject to their jurisdiction! It’s clear to anyone who examines the subject, that the FDA is a champion for the pharmaceutical industry and on their behalf attempts to suppress the use of cheap, non-patentable, natural, alternative therapies at every opportunity. Silver, after all, is merely a metal. It’s a harmless element of Nature.
What business does the FDA have in attempting to regulate its use?
Bill’s comment: Make no mistake… Colloidal silver is a KILLING WEAPON, not a nutritional adjustment. I only use SOVEREIGN SILVER(www.natural-immunogenics.com) because I am confident that they are telling the truth about their product’s safety, and because SUCH A TINY AMOUNT of product is so effective. If and when I can no longer simply go to the health food store or buy this product online, I will damn sure make my own colloidal silver and use that. It’s super easy to make homemade colloidal silver, but the homemade version can be dangerous! Use common sense – drinking particles of metal requires careful consideration. I’ve been using Sovereign Silver for 10 years plus, and can’t seem to turn myself blue with it! Research Paul Karason if you want an example of the possible dangers of HOMEMADE colloidal silver. Peace….
In the new Special Technique lab, we have some design and construction ideas that don’t necessarily relate to rotary tattoo machines. So, it’s finally time to create magical items for wandering Taoists, retro-tech sorcerors and steampunk sirens. The Slicer Unit is our first amulet. It’s unique, and will not be repeated. Salvaged parts from archaic technologies provided most of the materials. The chassis and gears are solid brass from old clocks. The jewel, made from automobile tail light material, is housed in plumbing hardware, and the support brace and jump ring are made from a real tattoo needle.
The slicer is plated steel, and quite sharp. At your request, we can make it RAZOR sharp, if it’s going to be your daily driver box cutter. The blade rotates up behind the chassis for concealment and safety. The Slicer Unit also features a brass nut layered in copper, and a radio knob layered in silver. The silver was discovered in the scrap bin at the Gen. Atomics machine shop, and was actually plated with copper until we buffed the plating off. All brazing is done with silver solder, not lead. The Slicer Unit was hand crafted in one session by Christopher Mk Ultra Parker and Ugly Bill of Special Technique.
We’ll be engraving this amulet with S.T.2012, no.1, and it will come with a velveteen bag, modest gift box and a hand-written letter of authenticity. The Slicer Unit amulet is priced at $85.00 USD with shipping included. Please email email@example.com if you’re interested.
Tin Tzat To Chung Pills are a Chinese herb ‘patent formula.’ This means that they are not specifically formulated for one person – anyone can take them. The spelling of this product’s name is a romanization of the Cantonese dialect. Romanized from Mandarin, it’s spelled ‘Tian Qi Du Zhong’ pills. If you go to a Chinese herb store to look for this product, just bring them a printout or call the image up on your phone. You’re not gonna get the pronunciation right the first few times, but you need the product.
Tin Tzat To Chung Pills are extremely beneficial to the heart and kidneys, but their main purpose is to heal sore and cramped muscles, especially in the back, and especially in the LOWER back. However, any soft tissue in the body will heal incredibly fast from using this formula. Tin Tzat To Chung Pills adjust the body’s energy, and also feed blood and nutrients to soft tissues in the body.
The two main ingredients are Tian Qi or Tin Chut–also known as pseudoginseng or notoginseng, and Du Zhong or To Chung–rubber tree bark. Like all herbs, these two can cause imbalances if taken alone, so they are combined with 6 other herbs to alleviate side effects and make sure they find the right path in the body. Tian Qi increases circulation, and Du Zhong is a natural muscle relaxer.
The pills are small, as is common in Chinese medicinal formulas, so you can easily adjust the dose. Follow the directions at first so your body can get used to the formula, taking 5 pills at a time with water only. Don’t eat or drink anything else for an hour before and 30 minutes afterwards.
Once your body is used to the herbs – after a few doses – you can increase the dose and frequency to suit your needs. Remember, these pills are food, not drugs!
Examples of ailments that can be remedied by these pills are: sore muscles from working out, strains and sprains that don’t heal easily, back muscle soreness/spasms caused by injuries/stress/illness/diet/depleted sexual essence, job/stress related neck and shoulder pain, and old injuries that don’t heal well because they are inside areas of poor circulation such as bones or cartilage.
THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE. WE DO NOT SELL THIS PRODUCT.
[Ugly Bill's comment to tattooists: I have been using various brands of Iron Hit Liniment(also called 'dit da jow') for over 15 years as part of my personal regimen, for both joint pain and hard physical training. White Tiger Kung Fu's version of this liniment is the absolute best product you can get for joint and tendon pain. It's not a 'band-aid' or analgesic balm. It actually fixes the problem.]
USING IRON HIT LINIMENT:
-Use a few drops repeatedly. This is not the same as using a whole lot at once!
-If you have a serious injury, or an old one, you may have to use this product for up to an HOUR a day to get fast, effective, PERMANENT relief. It might seem unreasonable but, well, it’s your pain, and it’s up to you how badly you want relief. Many people live with some sort of pain from an old injury. Trouble is, many old injuries can be crippling later in life if a person doesn’t have the discipline to address the issue at a younger age.
-The liniment is more effective when warmed. Remember, the liniment is FLAMMABLE. Keep liniment away from open flames! An easy way to warm liniment is to place the bottle in a mug with a little hot water in the bottom, and let it sit for a few minutes. Be careful not to melt your bottle. Do not put liniment in the microwave.
-Iron Hit Liniment, like all herbs, can be rendered less effective or ineffective if it comes in contact with metallic particles. If you are putting it on your wrist, take off your watch, and don’t wear rings on your fingers while applying it. Also, if you use tap water in your warming mug, make sure you dry it off the bottle before applying. There are metallic particles in tap water. It can get sucked up into the opening of your bottle and ruin the whole batch!
-Don’t wash or lotion your hands immediately before OR after using the liniment.
-Never use on broken skin!
-Don’t use liniment directly on the spine, as it has a powerful effect on the body’s energy, and the spine is one of the body’s major energy pathways.
-Be careful when pouring Iron Hit Liniment from the bottle. If it touches your skin, it cannot be put back into the bottle, as this could ruin the whole batch! If you pour out too much, use it on yourself or find a friend!
-Rub slow, diligently, and clockwise, no matter what body part you are treating. Clockwise wakes the area up, counter-clockwise puts the area to sleep. Only your Chinese medicine practitioner will (rarely) use a counter-clockwise motion. Your left hand should rotate towards the thumb, and your right hand should rotate towards the little finger. When your skin is almost dry/tacky, use a few more drops. Keep repeating this as often as possible and you will get miraculous results.
If your skin becomes irritated, you may be rubbing against the grain of your skin’s hairs too hard. Be mindful.
