Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver is a powerful natural infection-fighting substance that’s growing in popularity around the world.

The History and Use of Silver

Silver has been used in medicine for many centuries. Hippocrates, the famous ancient physician and teacher of medicine, wrote that silver had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties. Silver has been used in plasters and wound dressings to help with external infections and is used as a disinfectant and antiseptic for medical devices. The Phoenicians were reported to have used silver bottles to store their water, vinegar and wine to stop these spoiling. More recently, around the 1900s, a silver sixpence was placed in bottles of milk to extend the freshness. Dissolved silver was added to Russian water supplies for their Mir Orbital Station to act as a disinfectant. Even the World Health Organisation (WHO) have introduced silver electrodes and colloidal silver in water filters to provide safe drinking water in developing countries. We extensively researched the production of CS using various waters. As a result, we now recommend using only distilled or purified de-ionised water.

Colloidal silver can be purchased at just about any health food store in America. But making your own colloidal silver with a high-quality colloidal silver generator saves you tons of money and allows you to use colloidal silver for a multitude of beneficial purposes.

That’s because store-bought colloidal silver can cost as much as $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. But when you make your own colloidal silver with a high-quality home colloidal silver generator, the cost can be as low as 35 cents a quart!

That means you can afford to use colloidal silver for all of the health-promoting purposes. Most labels also stated that up to four or five times that amount, or more, can be taken during the course of a day when using colloidal silver to help the body fight an active infection such as a cold, flu, tummy bug, or other minor infection.

What can it be used for?

Use is indicated for: ear infections, colds, sore throat, ulcers, burns, infections, arthritis, haemorrhoids, herpes, acne, blepharitis, dermatitis, dandruff, Eustachian tubes, impetigo, pruritis, seborrhea, sepsis, staphylococcus infections, eczema, psoriasis and skin rashes, ringworm, shingles, pet fur infections, trench foot, warts and genital warts.

Spray on garbage to prevent decay odours, on dish cloths, cutting boards. Spray in shoes, between toes, add to bath water, douche, colon irrigation, drop onto bandages and plasters to hasten healing time, soak dentures, spray refrigerator, freezer, food storage containers. Stops mildew, mould, wood rot, fungi. Use to spray pets bedding, use in cleaning and mopping solutions. Spray onto the top of open jam jars etc., spray food lids before closing. Spray air ducts, use in the final washing rinse, in dishwashers. Spray around plant roots to stop rot, spray foliage, inside gloves and under fingernails, rinse fruit and vegetables, use in shampoos and rinsing water, spray pets, carpets, wipe telephone mouthpieces, headphones, hearing aids, spray mattresses and allow to dry to kill dust mites. Clean combs and glasses with it. Excellent for nappy rash and to spray inside nappies.

Sterilise anything from tooth brushes to surgical instruments and use to clean toilet seats and use on floors.

Medical Applications of Silver

While silver’s importance as a bactericide has been documented only since the late 1800s, its use in purification has been known throughout the ages. Early records indicate that the Phoenicians, for example, used silver vessels to keep water, wine and vinegar pure during their long voyages. In America, pioneers moving west put silver and copper coins in their water barrels to keep it clean.

In fact, “born with a silver spoon in his mouth” is not a reference to wealth, but to health. In the early 18th century, babies who were fed with silver spoons were healthier than those fed with spoons made from other metals, and silver pacifiers found wide use in America because of their beneficial health effects.

Silver also has a variety of uses in pharmaceuticals. In fact, silver sulfadiazine is the most powerful compound for burn treatment. It is used by every hospital in North America for burn victims to kill bacteria and allow the body to naturally restore the burn area. It is used world-wide. It is sold under the trade name of Silvadiene. In another application polyurethane central venus catheters impregnated with silver sulfadiazine and chlorhexidine to eliminate catheter-related bacteriemia are supplied by Arrow International, Reading, PA.

In a world concerned with the spreading of virus and disease, silver is increasingly being tapped for its bactericidal properties and used in treatments for conditions ranging from severe burns to Legionnaires Disease.

Ten ways to use colloidal silver for self healing

1) You can spray it onto burns to prevent infections and promote faster healing without scarring.

2) You can also spray or dab it onto ringworm, boils, herpes sores, and warts for faster healing.

3) If you’re having bronchial problems or walking pneumonia, you can put some colloidal silver in a nebulizer and breathe it into your bronchial area and lungs directly.

4) Small amounts taken daily as a tonic will give what some call a second immune system to guard against flues and colds. Easy and inexpensive if you make if you make your own.

5) Colloidal silver drops can be used for ear infections without any harmful side effects. Some use it for eye and nasal infections as well. Perhaps it can be injected anally with an enema bulb to help cleanse the colon.

6) It can be applied topically for vaginal yeast infections or oral thrush (yeast infection). Could be useful for chronic jock itch as well.

7) Colloidal silver can be used by pregnant women to assist fetal development and easier delivery of the newborn child.

8) It can be taken early with the onset of a cold, flu, or bronchitis to get over it quickly without harming beneficial bacteria. Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria.

9) Colloidal silver can be used successfully to combat MRSA infections. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a staph infection that can be fatal and is now resistant to antibiotics. It usually occurs during hospital stays, but has become rampant enough to originate outside hospitals (

10) There has been some success using colloidal silver with AIDS patients. It adds a layer of needed additional immunity while destroying existing pathogens.

Internal Uses:

Colloidal silver is well known as a natural antibiotic. Many people take what is considered to be a maintenance dose of colloidal silver every day — anywhere from a teaspoonful to an ounce. Colloidal silver users say it wards off all kinds of infections and has even helped reverse serious adverse health conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and more.

Experts say it is known to be effective against a wide range of disease-causing bacteria and fungal pathogens including E. coli, Salmonella, Staph, Pseudomonas, Candida yeast, and the various Trichophyton species of fungi, which are the most common cause of athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm, and hair and nail fungal infections in humans.

Colloidal silver is even said to be effective against MRSA, the deadly mutated staph bacteria that is feared in hospitals round the world because it spreads so easily and is extremely resistant to the pharmaceutical antibiotic drugs.

Users have also reported colloidal silver to be effective in cases of appendicitis, food poisoning, dysentery, ear infections, eye infections, sinus infections, bladder infections and more.

Experts believe it provides an overall boost to the immune system, as well. Indeed, according to Dr. Kent Holtorf of the Holtorf Medical Group, “There is evidence that silver is a natural critical component of our immune system and that low tissue levels associated with a dietary deficiency may result in a relatively weakened immune system, making one more prone to infection.”

Board certified immunologist Dr. Joseph Weissman, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California Medical School says, “Today, many antibiotics are losing the battle with germs. Fortunately, the best germ killer, which was discovered over 2,000 years ago, is finally getting the proper attention from medical science – natural silver. I sincerely recommend that everyone have electrically generated colloidal silver in their home as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal agent.”

Colloidal silver is also known to work synergistically with herbal remedies like Aloe Vera. In fact, some users recommend taking a little colloidal silver together with Aloe Vera for greater absorption.

While there are no official government recommended dosages for colloidal silver, there are some common-sense guidelines you should adhere to when taking colloidal silver orally. The most effective yet safest dosages are said to be one table spoon a day, use a plastic spoon to dispense (not metal/stainless) or the cap and tip into mouth.

Why Use Ionic Colloidal Silver? For Your Health & Quality of Life.

  • Anti-infective– colds, flu, strep…any type of infection may benefit from the internal use of ionic colloidal silver.
  • Wound healing– scrapes, cuts, burns…even ringworm, eczema, or thrush…use topically to speed healing.
  • Respiratory issues– asthma or pneumonia can benefit from colloidal silver by nebulizer, as well as drinking it.
  • Digestive issues– regardless of cause, viral, bacterial, etc., ionic colloidal silver assists with healing and getting back to normalcy.
  • Helps with skin conditions– dandruff, psoriasis, skin rashes benefit from the use of ionic colloidal silver.
  • It’s not just for humans– pets benefit too, whether it’s an external or internal issue. For the maintenance of good health, use topically or simply add to drinking water.

External Uses:

Colloidal silver is used externally to treat scrapes, insect bites and stings, cuts and burns – even sunburn. This is one of the main reasons colloidal silver should be in every family’s first aid kit. Pour pure colloidal silver into a clean spray bottle and keep it handy in case of burns in the kitchen.

It is commonly used as a home remedy for all kinds of skin disorders and irritations. It can be used to treat eczema, psoriasis, acne, ringworm, shingles, boils and fungal infections of the skin, fingers, toes and scalp.

It is a natural anti-inflammatory agent and a powerful antifungal and antibiotic. Many users claim that it helps prevent scarring.

Add a teaspoon or two of colloidal silver to your bottles of shampoo and conditioner for healthier hair, and to heal dandruff quickly, and to stop itchy scalp.

Experts say it can be used as eye drops to ease eye irritation and inflammation, and that it actually has the power to stop eye infections like Pinkeye or sties in a matter of a few days.

Two drops of colloidal silver inserted in the ear canal using a simple eye dropper are said to bring a quick end to ear infections.

Oral Health

Colloidal silver benefits oral health by killing bacteria believed to cause conditions like tooth decay and gingivitis. Pour a few drops onto your tooth brush each day when you brush your teeth, or add a couple of teaspoons to the reservoir of your oral irrigator.

It is also an excellent mouth wash. Simply take a mouthful and vigorously swish it around in your mouth for at least five minutes for maximum bacteria-fighting power.

Silver in colloidal form consists of extremely small, electrically charges particles. It is a powerful natural virus, fungi and bacteria killer. It works in a matter of minutes upon direct contact, by preventing single celled organisms from up-taking the oxygen they need to survive. Therefore, resistant strains should not develop.

Hundreds of infectious health disorders are documented in medical journals as being successfully overcome by taking or applying Colloidal Silver. Yes, Colloidal Silver has never been found to harm useful body bacteria in the intestines. Colloidal Silver helps the body’s natural immunity to fight infections.

Colloidal Silver can be taken several ways – by drinking (2 teaspoons daily), by holding it under the tongue, by a sprayer for ear, nose and throat infections (highly recommended), a dropper for eyes, a soaked pad for skin ailments or in a nebuliser.

Colloidal Silver has no known drug interactions (means it can be taken with medications), is odourless, non-stinging and non-addictive.


Colloidal silver benefits families with children by providing the whole family with a natural immune system boost. What’s more, many parents use colloidal silver in small amounts to help their children rapidly overcome colds, sniffles, sinus congestion, eye infections such as Pink Eye or sties, earaches, and much more.

Add colloidal silver to baby wipes to help ward off bacteria that can lead to irritation. You can also spray colloidal silver onto infants’ skin in cases of rashes and eczema.

If you use cloth diapers, soak them for five minutes in a solution of pure colloidal silver to destroy any disease-causing pathogens.


When your pets are clean and healthy, your whole family is cleaner and healthier. Colloidal silver is as good for animals as it is for humans.

It can be sprayed on their fur, or applied to their wounds, infections and skin rashes for vastly accelerated healing.It can be used to wash their eyes and ears. Use a simple eye dropper to eliminate eye infections or runny eyes in pets like dogs and cats. Or dip the corner of a clean wash rag or gauze bandage in colloidal silver and use

if the animal has been scratching at its ears a lot. The colloidal silver will not only soothe the pain from the scratching and irritation, but will help kill any bacteria or other infectious microorganisms and begin the healing process quickly.

A few teaspoons given to your pet in its water dish every day helps keep them free of internal infections, including parasites. To kill parasites, it must be given daily because it works by destroying parasites in their egg stage.

In the Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry

Keep your kitchen cleaner and your food fresher with colloidal silver.

Spray it on your towels, sponges and kitchen surfaces to destroy harmful bacteria. And spray it daily onto your kitchen cutting board, counter tops, sink, drain, faucet and handles as a powerful disinfectant to prevent the growth and spread of bacteria, fungus and other pathogens.

You can also spray it on your fresh fruits and vegetables before refrigerating, and they’ll stay fresh twice as long as usual.

Use it during canning and preserving, or whenever you are storing opened food containers in the refrigerator for a few days.

You can also add it to the rinse cycle of your laundry as a means of keeping clothing, bedding, kitchen and bathroom towels and other items fresher and germ-free for longer periods of time.

Water Purification using Silver

Silver is employed as a bactericide and algaecide in an ever-increasing number of water purification systems in hospitals, remote communities and, more recently, domestic households.

Silver ions have been used to purify drinking water and swimming pool water for generations. New research into silver compounds is providing physicians with powerful, clinically effective treatments against which bacteria cannot develop resistance.

An increasing trend is the millions of on-the-counter and under-the-counter water purifiers that are sold each year in the United States to clean drinking water of bacteria, chlorine, trihalomethanes, lead, particulates, and odor. Here silver is used to prevent the buildup of bacteria and algae in the filters. Of the billions of dollars spent yearly in the U.S. for drinking water purification systems, over half make advantageous use of the bactericidal properties of silver. New research has shown that the catalytic action of silver, in concert with oxygen, provides a powerful sanitizer, virtually eliminating the need for the use of corrosive chlorine.

Save Money by Making and Using Your Own Colloidal Silver

A properly constructed colloidal silver generator can help keep you and your entire family healthy all year long by allowing you to make high-quality, infection-fighting colloidal silver for as little as 36 cents a quart, rather than paying exorbitant health food store prices of up to $20 or $40 for a tiny 4-ounce bottle.

What’s more, you’ll save hundreds or maybe even thousands of dollars a year on medical and veterinary expenses, because a few pennies worth of colloidal silver can be used to boost immunity and heal everything from colds and flu, to earaches, sore throats, sinus infections, eye infections and more.

Colloidal Silver for Lyme Disease

The use of silver as a health and home life remedy has been around since ancient times. Though today it has a more sorted existence as it is not approved by the FDA. To that end, there is a lot of misinformation about colloidal silver on the internet. However, it is still a commonly used supplement for many Lyme regimes and is frequently prescribed by alternative health professionals.

There are three main ways that colloidal silver can help the body:

-Silver holds onto oxygen molecules which positively react to bacteria and viruses.
-Silver ions can help block the life-sustaining cellular process of cellular respiration in bacteria and viruses by attaching themselves to the cell membrane of the bad guys.
-Silver has been shown to attach to DNA, preventing it from the process of unwinding.
Additional benefits of colloidal silver are as follows: It’s and antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and has been shown to improve skin health.

When on the lookout for your colloidal silver, you should be aware that there are a few different types out there. All are marketed as ‘colloidal silver’, though only one of them is the real deal. True colloidal silver does not contain protein, gelatin or any other additives. Colloidal silver is most commonly found in local health food stores and pharmacies, as well as online.

  • Aids in the treatment of many common ailments: cold/flu, eye/ear/sinus infections and pneumonia.
  • Is natural, affordable and accessible. Does not require a prescription or referral—though should be used with the aid of a medical professional if possible.
  • Easy to use and has minimal side effects.

Lyme disease is mostly transmitted by nymphal ticks, which are about the size of a pin. They bite, transmit the microbe, and then drop off — most people aren’t even aware of being bitten. Because symptoms of the initial infection are so mild (if they occur at all), it’s not uncommon for people to be completely unaware of being infected.

And borrelia isn’t the only microbe to worry about. Ticks carry many microbes that have similar characteristics to borrelia. What they all have in common is stealthy characteristics that make them hard to find and even harder to get rid of.

If immune system function is robust, a person can harbor these types of microbes indefinitely, keeping them in check without ever having symptoms. When illness does occur, it’s typically chronic and debilitating, but not life-threatening. Additionally, the degree of chronic illness is highly variable. Some people are severely debilitated, while others are only marginally miserable.

The Most Important Thing to Understand:

 Lyme Causes Damage to Multiple Body Systems

Lyme disease, much like CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome), Fibromyalgia and similar chronic degenerative diseases, all have one thing in common. Which is to say, they are caused, triggered or exacerbated by pathogens that wreak havoc on multiple bodily systems, usually the five main ones:

  • the immune system
  • the nervous system
  • brain system function
  • hormonal system function
  • energy-metabolism system function

Though the pathogens behind chronic degenerative diseases like Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia are quite different, they all work to cripple these five bodily systems in particular. They attack these five systems so they can ultimately take over the body and spread throughout it unhindered.

Chemistry of Colloidal Silver

There is no need to be concerned that there is ionic silver being produced when using just distilled water and silver electrodes.  It is the same process originally used by Michael Faraday and John Tyndall in the 1840’s.

What happens when you make colloidal silver with distilled water:

When passing an electrical current through water a process called electrolysis occurs where the water molecules are split into ions H+ and OH- and O–. Second, silver colloid particles are ejected from the positive electrode (colloids are suspensions of nano-particles that are larger than ions, atoms or molecules – in the case of silver these are clumps of silver atoms). Third, some silver ions are formed on the surface of the positive wire. The OH- ions produced by electrolysis react with the silver ions to form the insoluble ionic compound silver hydroxide which is brown and clings to the positive electrode (well a lot of it is ejected into the water as the positive electrode is also where silver is being ejected into the water, so you will also see a brown cloud between the electrodes. The O– ions produced by electrolysis react at the surface of the negative electrode forming the insoluble ionic compound silver oxide which is black and clings to the negative electrode (the instructions have a protocol for wiping the electrodes off periodically to maintain the speed of the process of making colloidal silver). The H+ ions formed by electrolysis combine with each other and free electrons from the electrical current and bubble off the negative wire as the diatomic hydrogen molecule H2.

All that is left at the end are colloidal particles of pure silver suspended in the distilled water and insoluble brown silver hydroxide clinging to the positive electrode and insoluble black silver oxide clinging to the negative electrode. The colloidal silver nano-particles have numerous charges on them and are surrounded by OH- ions. This can be verified because the suspension’s pH rises from 7 to about 10.5.  Also, you can perform the Tyndall test to verify the presence of colloidal silver.  Shine a bright penlight through the clear suspension.  Amazingly, the beam appears as if passing though fog.
