Imagine having your own hospital. Not just any
hospital either. After all, the mortality rate generally drops when hospitals go on
strike.(1,2,3,4) Death due to toxic drugs, unnecessary treatment, rampant ignorance and a
sea of antibiotic-resistant bacteria make most hospitals the Devil's own playground. No,
I'm talking about a hospital that makes people well again. Now, imagine that your new
hospital is essentially cost free, works anywhere and is the size of a transistor radio,
neatly fitting in your shirt pocket. Impossible? Not at all. The only thing unbelievable
about it is that any American is without one.
The "hospital" I am talking about is a
Colloidal Silver generator. Silver is a powerful, natural prophylactic/antibiotic, used
for thousands of years. Ancient Greeks lined their eating and drinking vessels with
silver, as did many other cultures throughout the world.(5) Pioneers of the American West
would put a silver dollar in a jug of milk to keep it fresh without
you ever wonder why silverware was made from silver? One of the properties of silver is
that it kills bacteria on contact in six minutes or less.(7) It may be that gold and
silver were first used as valued currency because of their medical properties.
Dr. Robert O. Becker, author of The Body
Electric, recognized a correlation between low silver levels and sickness. He said silver
deficiency is responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system. Dr. Becker's
experiments conclude that silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side
effects or damage to the body. He also states that silver does more than kill
disease-causing organisms; it also causes major growth stimulation of injured tissues.
Burn patients and even elderly patients notice more rapid healing with silver application.
According to Dr. Becker, all strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are
killed by the element. He even discovered that silver can change cancer cells back to
What is Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal Silver is the result of an
electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver
into a liquid, such as water.(8) As tiny particles, the silver can more easily penetrate
and travel throughout the body. Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme
that all one-celled bacteria, fungi and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. In short,
it suffocates the bad guys. Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been
known to develop. In fact, antibiotics are only effective against perhaps a dozen forms of
bacteria and fungi, but never viruses. Because no known disease-causing organism can live
in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver,
Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease-causing
Since there is not enough room to list all the
diseases against which Colloidal Silver has been used successfully, here is a tiny sample:
acne, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, blood parasites, bubonic plague, burns
(colloidal silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive),
cancer,(10) cholera, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, leprosy,
leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, parasitic infections
both viral and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions
of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep
infections, syphilis, toxemia, trenchfoot, all forms of viruses, warts and stomach ulcer.
In addition it also has veterinary uses, such as for canine parvo virus. You'll also find
Colloidal Silver very handy in the garden since it can be used against bacterial, fungal
and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted Colloidal Silver on the leaves, and add
to soil water.
It would appear highly unlikely that even germ
warfare agents could survive an encounter with Colloidal Silver, since viruses like E Bola
and Hanta, or even the dreaded "flesh-eating bacteria" are, in the end, merely
hapless viruses and bacteria. To top it off, Colloidal Silver is non-toxic, making it safe
for both children and adults, as well as pets.(11,12) In short, anything bigger than a
one-cell animal seems to like it.
Nor does one have to worry about that old FDA
(Food and Drug Administration) fox being put in charge of this home remedy hen house.
Colloidal Silver is a pre-1938 healing modality, making it exempt from FDA jurisdiction
under the grandfather clause.(13)
So why haven't you heard of it?
I suspect the user friendly economics of
Colloidal Silver may have something to do with its low profile in the media. Colloidal
Silver can't help but shine a spotlight on the expensive and deadly nature of our
pharmaceutical industries, who are bigger than the Pentagon economically. For example, the
pharmaceutical cartel's relentless promotion of dangerous vaccines for humans and animals
through government programs have now been linked to everything from increasing crib deaths
in infants (who in many documented cases scream for hours before dying), to the
increasingly common disease, feline leukemia, in house cats.(14) Colloidal Silver, on the
other hand, is a safe and reliable alternative to expensive pharmaceuticals.
It is possible that consuming large amounts over
long periods of time may kill some friendly bacteria in your intestines. If taking large
amounts, you should supplement your diet with yogurt or acidophilus, or compensate for
possible bacteria loss in some other way. This is not, however, a serious problem, and
unlike antibiotics, Colloidal Silver does not weaken the body's immune system. In fact, it
is said to give the body a second immune system, creating a shield against disease of all
As it is currently marketed through local health
food stores, colloidal silver contains anywhere from 1 to 5 parts per million (ppm) and
sells for as much as $21.95 for two ounces. An average adult dose might be anywhere from a
tablespoon per day to a sixteen ounce tumbler, or more, since no toxic dose is known.
Thanks to one physicist's(14) brilliantly simple design outlined below, you can now
construct your own generator and produce unlimited amounts of high-quality colloidal
silver concentrate for the price of water!
How to make your own Silver Colloid Generator.
While it has been discovered that 30 volts is the
ideal for Silver Colloid production, 27 volts is very effective and happens to be the
convenient result of wiring three 9-volt batteries together. Therefore, you'll need three
9-volt transistor radio batteries, three battery snap-on lead connectors, 2 insulated
alligator clips, 1 24 volt 40 mA sub miniature incandescent bulb (28 volt 40 mA will also
do fine), a foot of 3/32" heat shrink insulation tubing, a foot of 2-conductor
stranded insulated zipper wire for clip-leads, a small box to put it all in, and 10"
of pure silver wire (.999 fine). This should cost under $30.00 for everything. Assuming
some skill with a soldering iron, you should spend about thirty minutes constructing the
Solder your three snap-on battery clips in series
(red to black) to provide 27 volts. Connect a 24V incandescent lamp in series with either
positive or negative output lead. Solder the red insulated alligator clip to the positive
(anode) and the black insulated clip to the negative (cathode) 2 conductor lead wires.
Insulation is shrunk over soldered connections using a heat gun or hair dryer.
Cut your 10" of silver wire in half. Bend
top ends of your two 5" silver electrode wires so they can clip over the top rim of a
plastic or glass cup (not metal). About 4" of each wire should be submerged. WARNING!
Use ONLY pure silver (.999 fine) electrodes. #14 gauge is the preferred thickness. Pure
silver is sometimes available at electroplating supply companies. Or, inquire at a jewelry
store specializing in silver about who their wholesale supplier is. Do not confuse
sterling silver (.9275) with pure silver since sterling also contains other metals. With
this in mind, you may want to have a chemical analysis (assay) of your purchased silver in
addition to the written word of your supplier.
If the Silver Colloid is to be ingested or
injected, be sure to use distilled water. Tap water is fine for other uses, such as for a
topical spray or for plants. Also, before beginning to make your Colloidal Silver you will
need to make a saline solution for enhancing conductivity. If you are using filtered
spring water, no saline solution will be needed as spring water already has a natural
saline content. If the saline content of the water is too high, black flakes will begin to
appear on the surface of the water.
Saline solution can be made by mixing
approximately four ounces of distilled water with half a tea-spoon of sea salt in a
separate container. Do not use common table salt as table salt has chemical additives.
After stirring the salt solution for a minute, pour some of the water into an eye dropper
Now you're ready to make Colloidal Silver. Pour
eight ounces of distilled water into your glass. Add 1 or 2 drops of saline solution (3
drops at the most; if you use too much salt, you'll be making silver chloride
instead!)(15) to water and stir with a plastic/non-conductive utensil.
Insert silver electrode wires. Placement of wires
is not critical, but they must not be touching each other or the process will stop. (You
cannot shock yourself in this process so do not be concerned.) Attach alligator clips to
the ends of the silver electrode wires coming over the outside rim of the glass and you
will see a grey mist inside the glass start to peel away from the positive polarity wire
while bubbles of hydrogen rise from the other. Laboratory tests show that this method
creates a silver colloid of approximately 1 ppm per minute of activation time. Since you
are only taking microscopic particles from the silver wire, your silver wire may very well
last for years.
The brightness of the light bulb is related to
the conductivity of the water. It is not necessarily a problem if the bulb is very dim or
even remains dark as long as the process itself is occurring. Of course, when batteries
are old, the light will also become dimmer, signaling it's time for a change. Touch the
two alligator clips together to test the brightness of the bulb as a battery check. A
fresh set of batteries should last a year or more.
When finished, detach alligator clips. Clean
silver electrode wire after each use to remove dark oxide on the anode. Use a small piece
of 1/4" thick nylon kitchen scouring pad to polish dried silver, then wipe with paper
napkin to make ready for next use. Store your Colloidal Silver in dark, non-conductive
(and if plastic, non-reactive) containers, like empty hydrogen peroxide bottles. Keep away
from light as even room light will degrade colloids rapidly by turning solution grey or
black just as exposure to light darkens the silver in camera film. Stir thoroughly or
shake each time before using. Keep cool, but do not refrigerate. Also, put a few drops of
Silver Colloid in the saline solution to prevent fungus growth.
In using your own home-made silver colloid
generator it will become apparent that you now have the power to safely protect yourself,
your family, your pets and plants, your community, and (through the dissemination of this
information), our nation, from over 650 pathogens, viruses, microbes, fungi and parasites.
Upon creating your first batch of Colloidal Silver, you will find it tastes the same as
untreated water. And it won't sting, even in a baby's eyes. Congratulations and bon

in cases of intestinal troubles. Dr. Henry Crooks found that Silver in the colloidal state
is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely nontoxic. Rather than in a
chemical compound, the Silver, in the colloidal state, may be applied in a much more
concentrated form, with correspondingly better results. All fungus, virus, bacterium,
strep-tococcus, strphylococcus, and other pathogenic organisms are killed in three or four
minutes; in fact, there is no microbe known that is not killed by Colloidal Silver is six

"We used to think, and some
still do, that life came from a chemical soup. Now we know that unless there is an
electrical charge there is no life. Life, then, is electrical. And when electrical systems
go, although the chemistry is still there, the life does not exist."

Physiological Sciences, UCLA
In an earlier issue
[Nov/Dec 1995] I wrote
of a "hospital" that was safer than and in many ways superior to all others in
its ability to promote wellness. It was essentially cost-free to operate and portable as a
deck of cards: a colloidal silver generator. With it you can make virtually unlimited
amounts of the highest quality colloidal silver for the price of water.
Currently, we the people of the United States are
spending $3,700 per person per year to treat our diseases-the highest amount in the world.
Ironically, our health problems are getting worse. Absurd as it sounds, the third leading
cause of disease and death in the United States is now infectious disease. These deaths
are completely preventable.
With the simple act of wiring together three
9-volt batteries, something very profound begins to happen: Ordinary people are able not
only to heal themselves, but find themselves endowed with the power to heal others and to
protect the health of entire communities. These everyday people's newfound power
encompasses even the ability to heal animals, plants and trees. They are also able to grow
more nutritious food and to store it for longer periods.
Losing their dependent patients, the
multi-billion-dollar, managed-care-of-"incurable"-diseases industry and the
deadly, mutagenic vaccine industry begin to crumble. So does the cold-and-flu industry
which buys all those prime-time TV ads.
Don't expect these cartels to take their losses
lying down. They will do their best to frighten people away from making it themselves,
sometimes buying off colloidal-silver manufacturers to act as their agents. You can also
expect these drug companies to aggressively market their own substitute products, lust as
they pushed antibiotics in the 1940s when colloidal silver was first suppressed.
One of the most effective flimflam ploys involves
trotting out an "expert" who confirms that the product he or she is selling is
absolutely essential for your well-being. This spokesperson will stress that his/her
studies of the competition revealed that Brand X will very likely harm you. Actually, the
expert is used as a shill to usurp your freedom of choice and dictate what you should
regard as "health" and health-promoting practices.
Similar ploys have been used by colloidal-silver
manufacturers, resulting in confusion and fear among those most interested in using it. We
can best avoid manipulation by gaining a deeper understanding about different types of
colloidal silver, production methods, issues of safety and usefulness.
First some basics. A colloid consists of minute
particles that float within a liquid despite the pull of gravity. To stay in suspension,
these particles must be smaller than 1 micron (1/1000 of an inch). When fresh produce is
processed through a juicer, a colloid results in the form of a glass of juice. Drinking
fresh juices makes it possible to consume far more nutrients than by eating. Because juice
is the equivalent of a predigested food, the body can process large amounts with minimal
effort and correspondingly better health results.
As a colloid sits, the larger particles begin to
fall out of suspension and settle to the bottom of the container. To redistribute the
contents, one usually shakes a bottle of juice before drinking.
Similarly, with colloidal silver, particles are
pulled off a pure silver wire immersed in water by applying a low-voltage electric current
which gives each particle an electric charge. Although this charge is long lasting, it is
not permanent; daylight, magnetic fields and time will cause a silver colloid to lose its
charge. This is referred to as "falling out" or "plating out."1
Note, while colloidal silver is light sensitive,
it is not as light sensitive as camera film. Taken to the beach under the midday
California summer sun, it will oxidize in about 10 minutes. Indoors, under ambient and
artificial light, this would take about three days. However, that only means that
colloidal silver should be stored in tinted or opaque containers.
Many colloidal-silver manufacturers claim that if
the silver particles are "too large," the resulting brew will be injurious, but
the truth can be found in many science textbooks. When current is applied to silver in
solution, the particles that break off will always be the same size: 1.26 angstroms
(.00001 microns).2 This particle is so small that the next stop on the road to
smallness is the atom itself!
Colloids are by nature the smallest particles
matter can be divided into while retaining individual characteristics. Reducing a piece of
metallic silver to a cloud of microscopic particles greatly extends its total surface
area-and its healing properties-while deepening penetration into the body.
Because the silver particles are charged, they
strive to combine with other elements. Trace elements exist even in distilled water, and
when the charged silver particles combine with a specific trace element, the solution can
turn one of a number of colors, like gray, yellow, green or brown. The element the silver
chooses is largely irrelevant: Once in the body, the silver releases its bond in search of
stronger attachments in order to stabilize its charge. Therefore, as the silver colloid
enters the body, the original silver particles (about the size of 15 atoms) quickly pass
through the stomach lining and into the blood stream where they circulate for about a week
Yellow Colloidal Silver
Yellow colloidal silver is favored by most
manufacturers, not because it is more effective than other types, but because it has a
longer shelf life. This stability in solution does not automatically translate into
smaller combined-particle size of the silver ion and the trace element. Some trace
elements are simply more water soluble than others. Either way, particle size is a moot
point: Freshness and density (parts per million, or ppm), not color, determine
A disadvantage of the yellow colloidal silver is
its bitter taste-unlike the silver-colored one. Also, the yellow solution is more
difficult to make. When using a 27-volt generator, it is helpful to reduce the water
volume to shorten the much-longer activation time the yellow solution requires. I could
find no medical evidence that a yellow colloid is more effective than a silver one. Of
course, you can create both for yourself and compare their effects.
To make the yellow solution, use a tall, narrow
glass with 6 to 8 ounces of distilled water. Use no saline solution. The water will not
gain conductivity, as it does when a saline solution is added, so the process will take
about 45 minutes. It will produce a concentration of approximately 10 ppm. Keep an eye on
the color of your solution, or it will eventually turn murky brown and then black. If this
happens, just throw it out and start over.
How To Make High-concentration Solutions
High-concentration solutions cannot be made by
simply extending the process time.
As more silver ions travel through the water, the
conductivity increases which begins to alter the process. The result is a time
limit of about 15 minutes when using distilled water plus saline solution at room
To create high concentrations of silver, simply
heat the water. For every 10 degrees that the water rises above room temperature (72
degrees), the ppm figure doubles: If 5 ppm resulted after seven minutes of activation with
16 ounces of water at 72 degrees, 82 degrees would yield 10 ppm, 92 degrees would deliver
20 ppm, etc.
You should not boil the water, but you will find
plenty of leeway between 72 and 212 degrees (boiling). Also, do not use a teapot because
of its calcified residue. A cleaner pot, like a stainless steel, ceramic or glass one used
for cooking, will work fine.4 Then pour the warm/hot water into a glass.
The body's ability to process the tiny atoms of
colloidal silver makes silver build-up in the body impossible. The Environmental
Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports a "No Toxicity" listing for
colloidal silver. In fact, it appears that harmlessness is one of the attributes of the
colloidal state, regardless of content. For example, examining a bottle of colloidal
minerals from a local health food store, I noticed arsenic, nickel and lead among the 65
trace minerals on the ingredients list: If the particles are small enough, you can even
Since the body has a vital need for silver-to
maintain the immune system and to produce new, healthy cells-and since our blood is also a
colloid, the harmonious way in which colloids enter the body may well make colloidal
silver the safest medicine on earth.
Just to prove a point to myself, I made a
16-ounce solution of well over 250 ppm and drank it. I repeated this procedure four days
in a row, daily ingesting at least the equivalent of 50 16-ounce glasses of a 5-ppm,
solution! I did not eat yogurt or acidophilus or compensate for friendly bacteria loss in
any way. The only side effect was that I seemed to feel better!
According to pharmacist Ron Barnes, R.Ph.
(Capitol Drugs, Los Angeles), this makes sense because:
Many strains of pathogenic microbes-viruses,
fungi, bacteria or any other single-celled pathogen-resistant to other antibiotics are
killed on contact by colloidal silver and are unable to mutate. However, it does not harm
tissue-cell enzymes or friendly bacteria.
A Rejuvenating Elixir
My next experiment was a little different. I cut
two flowers in the back yard and left one on a shelf without water for 24 hours. When I
picked it up the next day it was completely limp. I made a fresh cut at the bottom of the
stem and placed it in a glass of high-concentrate colloidal silver. Each day it got
better. By the third day, the stem had become firm again, as if it had just been cut. Not
a single petal was lost.
I had placed the second flower into ordinary
water immediately. By the third day, many of its petals had fallen; though it had been in
water from the start it was already dying.
It seems that something in silver is tied to the
very core of the life process itself. Dr. Robert 0. Becker, MD, agrees. Writing about his
experience with older patients, the noted biomedical researcher from Syracuse University
and author of The Body Electric and Cross Currents said:
Silver did more than kill disease-causing
organisms. It promoted major growth of bone and accelerated the healing of injured tissues
by over 50 percent.
He also discovered that silver "profoundly
stimulates healing in skin and other soft tissues in a way unlike any known natural
process..." and that it promotes a new kind of cell growth which looks like the cells
These cells grew fast, producing a diverse and
surprising assortment of primitive cell forms able to multiply at a great rate, then
differentiate into the specific cells of an organ or tissue that had been injured, even in
patients over 50 years old.
A Broad-spectrum Remedy
The healing properties of silver are so wide
ranging that we see researchers expressing amazement time and time again. Alfred Searle,
founder of the pharmaceutical conglomerate, wrote in 1919:
Applying colloidal silver to human subjects
has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For
internal administration. orally or hypodermically, it has the advantage of being rapidly
fatal to parasites without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. It protects
rabbits from ten times the lethal dose tetanus or diphtheria toxin.
I received a call from a man with a Ph.D. in
computer science who had read my original article, made some colloidal silver and applied
it with a dropper chronic eye infection. He said the infection went away almost
immediately. In passing he mentioned that the solution also got rid of the plaque on his
teeth. I had been wondering what happened to the plaque on my own teeth but had not put
the two together.
The power of silver still reigns worldwide in
many modern-day applications: Physicians use silver compounds in 70 percent of all the
burn centers in the United States, while British Airways, Swissair, Scandinavian Airlines,
Lufthansa, Olympic, Air France, Canadian Pacific Airlines, Alitalia, KLM, Japan Airlines
and Pan Am all rely on silver-process water filters to curtail waterborne diseases. NASA
uses a silver water-purification system on the space shuttle as do the Soviets. Japanese
firms even remove cyanide and nitric oxide from the air with silver.
So, how do you frighten people away from the
safest medicine on earth? You tell them that the bogeyman will get them. If they're too
sophisticated for that, tell them they will get a strange, archaic disease like argyria.
Actually, there is no record of anyone ever contracting argyria from colloidal silver made
by the electrolytic method.
(Argyria is a harmless and infrequent cosmetic
condition in which some body parts take on a slight bluish cast due to the presence of
chemical compounds of which silver is only a component. It did not seem to bother the
royal, "blue-blood" families of Europe, who stayed healthy through the plagues
of the Middle Ages by ingesting large amounts of silver.)
Surviving With Colloidal Silver
Were I to end up in the midst of a calamity, I
would need only water to have one of the most powerful medical resources in the world at
my disposal. (Technically, colloidal silver can be made in a variety of common liquids,
including beer and soup, but I'm not recommending anyone do this in the normal course of
In a remarkable clinical trial with 14 elderly
patients, Dr. Becker inserted a pair of silver electrode wires directly into each wound,
using the body's own juices as the liquid solution and applying current to the external
ends. (The voltage one uses is so low it produces no sensation.) With this technique, he
was able to heal infections inside broken bones--one of the hardest types to control-and
to mend previously unhealing fractures and breaks.
In some cases he left the silver surgically
implanted in the body. In others, he sewed the wound up around the protruding electrode.
Once the wound had healed, "The implanted silver wire was easily withdrawn from the
wound manually without the need for surgery or anesthesia."
Regarding the ability of metallic silver to
control infection, he said, "All of the organisms that we tested were sensitive to
the electrically generated silver ion, including some that were resistant to all known
antibiotics." Concerning the safety of inserting it into the body, he added: "In
no case were any undesirable side effects of the silver treatment apparent.
Under emergency conditions it would be good to
remember that U.S. silver coins from 1964 and earlier contain 90 percent silver, nine
percent copper and one percent zinc, all of which are known to have beneficial properties
if used in a colloidal state. Just scour the coins until they are clean and shiny (I
mention this purely as an intellectual consideration and not to recommend that anyone
undertake such an action under normal conditions. Silver wire is much easier to use.)
What Doesn't Colloidal Silver Do?
It does not interact with any other medications
or upset the stomach; in fact, it is a digestive aid. It does not sting the eyes.
Medical-journal reports and documented studies spanning the past hundred years indicate no
known side effects whatsoever from oral or intravenous administration of colloidal silver
in animal or human testing. It has been used with good results under the most demanding
health care circumstances.
Without overstating the case, it may be time to
recognize colloidal silver as not only the safest medicine on Earth, but also the most
