"What Exactly Is Colloidal Silver?"
By: Marvin Robey

So, what is this "silver ion"? Well, it's really more commonly known as "colloidal silver". It is presently available in health food stores and by mail order suppliers. Simply put, it is extremely minute-sized silver particles suspended in water, with a positive electrical charge. The smaller the silver particles, the more effective it has been proven to be. The best colloidal silver is produced at the molecular level. A small D.C. current is passed through an electrolyte with silver electrodes. Minute, molecular sized particles are drawn off of the positive electrode, having a positive electrical charge. This electrical charge is of primary importance to healing and anti-bacterial qualities. The charge slowly dissipates, and therefore the freshness of the colloid is important. The electrolyte may be colloidal silver itself but is usually sea or table salt, although this produces some silver chloride which is an impurity to the colloid but not serious. Some producers use a protein or some other stabilizer to keep it in suspension, while others add a tea, food coloring, or other substance which hides the true quality of the colloid. However, if the quality is good these are not necessary and are usually a sign of poor quality.

Silver has been known to be a bactericide for at least 1200 years. Even in ancient times, it was known to prevent disease and it was said that disease could not be transmitted by drinking from a silver cup. Silver coins were commonly dropped into a jar to prevent the spoilage of milk and other drink, and silver containers were used to prolong the freshness of foods in general. Even today, we commonly call all tableware "silverware" although today it is more commonly stainless steel. Until almost 1970 it was common usage for scientists to put a silver dime in a petri dish to sterilize the dish. Silver was long used for plates for the surgical repair of bones.

In the 1920's, 30's and 40's, silver was ground very fine like flour, suspended in water and was used orally for many infections and disease conditions, topically on burns, and for fungal infections. Over 650 bacteria, virus, and fungi were considered treatable with this silver in 1938. With the development of the patented antibiotics, silver was forgotten in the United States and most other places, although the antibiotics are only effective against bacteria, not viruses, yeast, or fungi, as is silver. Now, with the greatly improved modern colloids, the tables are turning and silver may be the most effective treatment.

The 1994 issue of Newsweek featured a six page article, "Antibiotics, The end of Miracle Drugs?" as the cover story. "The rise of drug-resistant germs is unparalleled in recorded history," according to the article. "Penicillin and tetracycline lost their power over staph back in the 1950's and 60's. Another antibiotic, methicillin, provided a backup for a while, but methicillin-resistant staph is now common in hospitals and nursing homes worldwide...Trying to cripple bacteria's defenses...will not do much more than buy us five to ten years... A better strategy might be to abandon antibiotics altogether in favor of different kinds of drugs." Not a very pretty picture.

The September, 1995 issue of Time Magazine featured an article titled "Revenge of the Killer Microbes." Sounds like a science fiction thriller, doesn't it? But Time was serious. "Faced with AIDS, and with an ever increasing number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, doctors were forced to admit that the medical profession was actually retreating in the battle against germs. The question ceased to be, 'When will infectious disease be wiped out?' and became 'Where will the next deadly new plague appear?'...Humanity once had the hubris to think it could control or even conquer all these microbes. But anyone who reads today's headlines knows how vain that hope turned out to be. New scourges are emerging -- AIDS is not the only one -- and older diseases like tuberculosis are rapidly evolving into forms that are resistant to antibiotics,...In 1992, 13,300 hospital patients died of infections that resisted every drug doctors tried."

The basic problem is simply that bacteria have a tremendous ability to adapt to substances. They can and do mutate to overcome antibiotics. When the antibiotics destroy the bacteria which are susceptible to them, they can clear the way for the resistant bacteria to move in uninhibited.

Still another problem that has plagued the medical profession from the beginning with modern antibiotics has been that beneficial bacteria and organisms play various important, natural functions in the body. Antibiotics often play havoc with some of these friendly organisms, producing long-lasting side effects that may be difficult to correct. Science Digest suggested an answer to all of these catastrophic problems back in March of 1978 in an article titled "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter." This article by Jim Powell stated: "Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic."

One reason that the antibiotics have been so popular in the medical field is due to the fact that they can be patented. Therefore, the pharmaceutical companies find it financially worth while to keep the doctors educated in their medicines, while other products go unnoticed. Silver, on the other hand, is not patentable and there are no huge profits in it, so it is not worth heavy promotion. The high-priced products run over the low cost products, simply because they are more profitable.

All of this is happening at the same time that disease bacteria are developing immunity to modern antibiotics. Furthermore, the immunity to the antibiotics seems to be developing all over the world, even in isolated areas. The medical profession is alarmed. Can silver save us? Many authorities think so.

In "Use of Colloids in Health and Disease", author Dr. Henry Crooks says that colloidal silver is highly germicidal. In laboratory test he found that "all fungus, virus, bacterium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, 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 in six minutes or less in a dilution as little as 5 parts per million. Dr. Crooks found colloidal silver particularly effective in intestinal problems, and tells us there are no serious effects whatsoever from high concentrations.

In "Colloidal Silver" by The Association for Colloidal Research, it is reported that: "Medical Journal Reports and documented studies spanning 100 years indicate no known side effects from oral or I.V. administration of properly manufactured Colloidal Silver in animal or human testing."..."There has never been a reported reaction with Colloidal Silver and any prescription medication..."

In Perceptions Magazine May/June 1996, Mark Metcalf states: "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 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!"

Some other researchers do tell us, however, that in prolonged, very heavy doses, some silver compounds will leave gray deposits in the heavier skin folds such as the knuckles. This condition is known as "Argyria." The only problem to these deposits is said to be the cosmetic appearance and the condition is said to be rare. Some experts say this condition has never been known to occur from silver in the colloidal state. Other experts do, however warn that this might be a possible problem to extremely high, prolonged dosages. The very small particle size in the colloidal silver would seem to make this possibility remote and this very small particle size is by far the most effective form of silver. Argyria is correctable with laser treatment, like a tattoo.
Furthermore, colloidal silver should not be used along with intravenous EDTA chelation, as silver is a metal and EDTA works by absorbing and removing metals from the blood. For this reason, the two work against each other.

The evidence appears to support the theory that colloidal silver is highly effective against all strains of pathogenic bacteria, while any one antibiotic is only effective against a few certain bacterial strains. Furthermore, antibiotics have never been effective against viruses, yeast, or fungi. Yet, researchers are telling us that colloidal silver has produced phenomenal results in tissue healing and reconstruction as well as reducing scar tissue in clinical tests. Severe cuts and wounds have healed in much less time."

Tiny particles of pure silver are made to deposit into water by simple electrolysis. Two silver wire electrodes, placed in a glass of water, are attached to the positive and negative terminals of a source of Direct Current (DC) electricity.

For our colloidal silver generator, square 9 volt batteries provide the easiest source of DC current. We’ll be using three 9 volt batteries hooked up in series. This means that the positive terminal of one battery is hooked up to the negative terminal of the next battery, etc., so that the individual voltage of each battery is added to the next battery. The sum effect being the total of all the battery voltages added together. Three 9 volt batteries will give us a working voltage of 27 volts. This is very near the ideal voltage of 30 volts used for making colloidal silver, that Peter Lindemann mentions in his recent article, A Closer Look At Colloidal Silver. After the three batteries are hooked up in series, we’re still left with an unattached negative terminal on the first battery and an unattached positive terminal on the third battery. We’ll attach a silver electrode to each of these terminals.

The negative (-) terminal attached to the silver electrode provides an excess of electrons. Those electrons would like to get to the positive (+) terminal electrode since it has a deficit of electrons. Everything in Nature wants to balance out and exist in a state of equilibrium, including electrons. The water solution that the electrodes are placed in provide a path through which some of those electrons can get back to the positive terminal. While electrons are flowing through the water solution from the negative silver electrode to the positive silver electrode, other things are happening.

Silver atoms have a net positive charge, or plus valence. As the electrons which left the negative silver electrode arrive at the positive silver electrode (also called the anode, since it receives electrons), they “push off” clusters of silver atoms, who don’t appreciate being ‘crowded’ by these extra electrons. These silver atoms go into the water solution and remain suspended there. Since these atoms have a net positive charge, they repel each other as best they can and create a colloid solution. A small number of these silver atoms are also attracted to, and cluster around, the negative silver electrode as well. In addition, because of the electron movement through the water, some of the water molecules (H2O) will break down-thereby releasing hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Most of the released hydrogen will bubble up out of the water as hydrogen gas.

Some of the oxygen will form oxygen gas (O2) and bubble out, some will go into solution, and some oxygen atoms will combine with the silver atoms and form a silver oxide (2AgO4) on the positive silver electrode. This will blacken the positive silver electrode. This undesirable buildup of silver oxide reduces the flow of silver atoms into the solution. In addition, if the buildup of silver oxide is allowed to go on too long, the excess oxide will break off from the electrode and drop to the bottom of your solution, contaminating it. The oxide buildup can be controlled by either periodically cleaning the electrodes or reversing the electrical polarity to the electrodes., thus reversing the role of which silver electrode acts as the anode.

By following the technique outlined next, we’ll be able to produce very small sized particles of silver (on the order of .001-.005 microns) which will turn the solution a golden yellow. These ideal sized particles provide the greatest biological benefit as well. Larger sized particles will turn the solution different colors. There is a precaution, however, that you must observe. If you don’t monitor the reaction, the current flow will rise to excessive levels, and you’ll wind up with a murky grey/black solution that usually has puddles of clumped silver floating at the top. If that happens, just throw it out and start over again, after cleaning off the electrodes and the glass.

"Commercial Colloidal Silver"

By: K. Adachi

It utterly rankles the commercial producers of colloidal silver when people like Dr Bob Beck tell others how easy it is to make their own colloidal silver at home for pennies-to-the-gallon using their own homemade generators. You will read or hear the most preposterous statements from these producers decrying the "inferiority" or "sub-standard" quality of homemade colloidal silver. Most of them are really angry because they are rapidly losing the ability to gouge the public for this marvelous product, which in fact is extremely cheap to produce. The truth is that homemade colloidal silver is every bit as good, and in most cases, better than commercially purchased colloidal silver! Why?

Many producers will add yellow food coloring to low density colloid to make it appear that it is a high density, small particle product. Other producers will charge exorbitant prices for what they claim is a highly concentrated solution (E.g. 300-500 ppm) but is often, upon analysis, a low concentration solution (E.g. 3-5ppm). Bob Beck once analyzed a group of 8 different colloidal silver products purchased at a health expo. He found the majority of them to be of extremely poor quality, low concentration, and with undesirable additives such as EDTA, coloring, and gelatin for suspension.

The list of minor and serious conditions that can be resolved using colloidal silver is practically endless. Colloidal silver has the capacity to help you rid yourself of an untold number of infections, disease conditions, or environmental concerns caused by or aggravated by the growth of bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungus, or molds that are either inside or outside of your body, or in your living environment. Paradoxically, this extremely wide breadth of applications has the tendency to overwhelm most readers. The list is so long that people tend to de-focus and unwittingly minimize the full range of therapeutic possibilities that colloidal silver offers. They might rinse their gums with colloidal silver before swallowing, but not think about using it for anything else!

So, besides drinking it, put it into a small atomizer pump bottle (2 or 4 oz size) and carry it in your pocket. I obtained mine by rinsing out a bottle that originally had eyeglass cleaning solution it in, but there are dozens of products utilizing this type of fine sprayer bottle that are found in any drug store. By spraying it externally, you can clear up everything from Acne to Athlete’s Foot & Diaper Rash to Poison Ivy. You’ll be amazed and pleasantly surprised by the results. The ideas listed below are designed merely to stimulate your imagination. Don’t limit yourself by assuming that this list is exhaustive. It’s only the beginning! Remember, you need to try it in order to see for yourself what silver colloid can do.

If you’re a mother with young children, watch how quickly diaper rash, eye infections and ear infections clear up with colloidal silver. For diaper rash, spray directly on the body and into the fresh diaper. You can apply it with an eye dropper for any type of eye infection. Ear infections quickly heal after spraying colloid in the ear, saturating a small piece of cotton for an earplug and then periodically re-spraying. Spray it on band-aid pads to shorten healing time. Spray immediately on burns (sunburns too) to prevent infections, lower pain, and promote faster healing with less scarring. Add to bath water, gargles, colon irrigation and Water-Pic solutions. Added to douches, women will find that it will rapidly clear up vaginal/yeast infections and most cases of cystitis.

Older folks who are bedridden can especially benefit from silver colloid. Rinse all sheets, pillow cases, towels, blankets, etc by pouring a large cupful into your washer during its rinse cycle. Naturally, spray it directly on festering bed sores, skin rashes, psoriasis, etc. and watch what happens! Add to soaks for dentures and dental appliances.

Allergic reactions to certain foods or other irritants can cause hives or welts to appear on any area of the body of susceptible people shortly after exposure. Instead of running off to the doctor’s office for a steroid prescription of topical Cortisone or worst yet, Prednisone, spray colloidal silver on the affected area and watch the hives completely disappear in 15 minutes or so!

I never come down with a bug after long plane trips because I always spray silver colloid in my mouth and inhale the mist through my nose and lungs every 30 minutes or so while on the plane. Oral spraying also eliminates bad breath and reduces gum inflammation or abscess pain.

Pet lovers need to add a capful to their pet’s drinking water and spray inside opened cans of pet food that are stored in the refrigerator. Add a cupful to birdbaths, the dog’s bath or your bath. Of course, spray it into Fluffy’s fur and skin if she has any type of eczema, skin sore, abrasion, or a wound that won’t heal, etc. Spray bedding and let it dry.

Put the colloidal silver in a larger pump bottle for use around the kitchen and bathroom. Mist sponges, towels, counters and cutting boards to eliminate odors (especially when preparing sea food), salmonella, E.Coli 0157:H7, (the tainted beef bug that you’ve been reading about in the newspapers lately) and other food-borne pathogens. Spray on fruits and vegetables before storing. Use when canning, preserving or bottling. Add to milk to slow spoilage. Spray garbage cans and refrigerator shelves to eliminate unpleasant odors. Add to dishwater and mopping solutions.

In the bathroom, spray shower stalls, toilets, bath mats, and pour a couple of cups into hot tubs or Jacuzzi. Add to water poured over saunas rocks or utilized in steam baths. Use in gymnasium foot dips. Spray it on urinals, bidets, toilet seats and sinks.

Around the house (or barn or survival area), add a capful to a gallon of water and use as a plant spray to stop fungi, molds, rot, and most plant diseases. Eliminate unwanted organisms in planter soils (E.g. Square Foot Gardening) and hydroponics systems. Add it to suspected drinking water when traveling or camping. It will neutralize all disease causing pathogens within six minutes. Spray it in your shoes or sneakers to eliminate foot odor. Household repairmen can add it to water based paints, wallpaper glues, and sizing compounds and never worry about mildew and mold again. If you live in a humid environment, spray it on carpets, drapes, and stored clothing and free yourself of musty odors and mildewed clothes.

Dr Bob Beck has repeatedly pointed out in his many lectures, that there are literally thousands of other beneficial uses for colloidal silver that need to be attempted and explored. So this is your chance. Do your part and experiment with this marvelous gift of Nature.

"Medical & Non-Medical Uses"

By: Martin Robey

Certain bacteria are essential to healthy body function, such as acidophilus. Several researchers claim colloidal silver only attacks the unfriendly pathogens and will not harm the friendly, as Mark Metcalf's statement quoted above enforces. But one must wonder how it can possibly differentiate. One explanation is that the friendly bacteria are aerobic, while unfriendly bacteria are anaerobic. Also, it is said that the silver does not attack bacteria directly, but rather decomposes certain enzymes the anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeast, and molds require. The silver acts as a catalyst and is not consumed in the process. It is probable that the reason the bacteria cannot develop a resistance to silver, as they do to antibiotics, is because silver does not directly them directly, but rather destroys the enzymes they depend on.

But Dr. Becker's experiments seem to show that colloidal silver not only kills the pathogens, but also produces dramatic healing of tissue, such as his statement of the skin growth on the leg quoted above. The silver ion causes some cells to restructure into cells with no differentiation. These cells can turn into any cell that is needed. Only these dedifferentiated cells can be used to create the cells necessary to replace destroyed cells such as in a wound or rebuild missing tissue. It seems to be for this reason that colloidal silver heals injuries without scarring, or at least greatly reduces scarring, while greatly accelerating the reconstruction or general healing of wounds. Scar tissue develops when dedifferentiated cells are in short supply. Therefore it would seem, from the evidence at hand, that it would reduce or prevent internal scarring and promote internal healing after surgery.

In "Report: Colloidal Silver, Health Consciousness, Vol.15, No. 4", it is stated "Silver aids the developing fetus in growth, health, and eases the delivery and recovery."

Silver seems to be even more promising against AIDS, and there seems to be no doubt that the silver supplements and supports the T-cells in their fight against foreign organisms in the blood. It virtually forms a second immune system, actually protecting and defending T-cells. It is strongly suggested by research scientists such as Dr. Gary Smith and others that silver ions are essential to the immune system.

The Herald of Provo Utah, February 2, 1992, ran an article on Pg. D1, in which a member of the administrative staff of Brigham Young University, by the name of Daryl Tichy has been successfully experimenting with colloidal silver in the treatment of AIDS, along with warts and parvo virus in a dog. "Tichy said he had the material [colloidal silver] tested at two different labs; results showed the solution killed a variety of pathogens, including the HIV virus." Tichy then states, "I don't have a doubt in my mind." He says he has not been able to obtain funds to continue his research. Most of these facts point to the general strengthening of the immune system by silver. In as much as AIDS is the result of a virtually destroyed immune system, it would be surprising to find that colloidal silver did not have a dramatic effect on AIDS. AIDS is a viral disease, and antibiotics have no effect on any virus, but the Colloidal Silver ion does.

The author has personally used a strong dose of colloidal silver (4 oz. of 500 parts per million) for a cold in its early stages. It provided relief in two hours and cured the cold completely in about 24 hours. Others say that it quickly cures their colds in more advanced stages.

A college student was facing final exams while debilitated with mononucleosis. He seemed doomed to fail. A friend offered him a dose of colloidal silver. The next day he stated: "I feel 300% better" He was then able to complete his final exams with no problems. This would strengthen the claim that colloidal silver is highly effective against viruses.

When will we see silver in our everyday life for non-medical use? It seems it is already more prominent in our lives than most people realize. In Health Consciousness, Vol. 15, No. 4, Pg. 5 we read:

"In the former Soviet Union, silver is used to sterilize recycled water aboard space shuttles. NASA has also selected a silver/water system for its space shuttle. Internationally, many airlines use silver water filters to guarantee passenger safety against water-borne diseases such as dysentery. The Swiss government has approved use of such silver water filters in homes and offices. Here in the U.S., some city municipalities use silver in the treatment of sewage. Silver works so well in purifying water that it is sometimes used to purify swimming pool water. It doesn't sting the eyes as chlorine does, and it does kill mosquito larva. An experiment conducted in Nebraska demonstrates its effectiveness: fifty gallons of raw sewage pumped into a pool without any disinfectant. A standard measure of contamination is the count of E. coli, a bacteria organism found in the intestinal tract. The count soared to 7000 E. coli cells per milliliter of water. When the water was exposed to silver electrodes, within three hours it was completely free of E. coli."

Many other uses are suggested by Dr. Bob Beck, (not to be confused with Dr. Robert O. Becker) such as spraying the fungus on plants, to purify the water of swimming pools and spas, disinfectants for home cleaning, diaper rash, all skin infections, eye infections (do not use a strong solution in the eyes), spraying during inhalation for lung problems, for animals, etc.

In the depression days of the 1930's when money was so scarce, colloidal silver was selling as high as $200 an ounce. Now it is available for as low as about $2.50 an ounce if you shop carefully. But be very careful of the quality you buy. Be especially careful if it has a nice light yellow color, because you can bet the color is food coloring used to appear as a strong colloidal solution. A strong colloid of silver will have a light gold cloud around the positive electrode when it is first made. This rapidly disperses and will be difficult to see after a short period of time, unless the concentration is very heavy. A true colloid of silver of very minute size is almost clear. Also be careful of colloidal silvers using a protein or other stabilizer to maintain the suspension, as the particle size is probably excessive or the product may be stored so long as to loose much of its electrical charge.

In general, modern colloidal silver is of much better quality than it was in the 1930's and 40's due to modern knowledge of how to produce it. Still better news is that you can produce the colloidal silver of the finest quality yourself for pennies a bottle. This way, you know it is fresh and you have a better idea of the concentration and the quality.

Very simple, inexpensive, easily used and maintainable equipment is now available by several manufacturers to make your own colloidal silver of the finest quality absolutely fresh. you can make the finest quality for about two cents an ounce including the cost of distilled water. Equipment from at least three sources is now available on the market, priced from $75 and up.

"Report: Colloidal Silver"

Vol. 15 No. 4 Health Consciousness Magazine

Silver is a powerful, natural prophylactic/antibiotic, used for thousands of years, with no side effects. It is a catalyst, disabling the particular enzyme that all one-celled bacteria, fungus and virus, use for their oxygen metabolism, they suffocate. Yet it is of no harm to human enzymes or any part of the human body chemistry. And it kills all disease-causing organisms, in six minutes or less, upon contact, even those pleomorphic, no matter how they mutate. Resistant strains fail to develop, and the body doesn't develop a tolerance. Colloidal Silver is both a remedy and a prevention of infections of any kind. Having sufficient Colloidal Silver in your body is to have a superior, second immune system. It was in common use until 1938. Great Grandma put a silver dollar in the milk, to keep it fresh at room temperature. (Ref-1,9)

Established Usage

Oral Formula (4-oz. bottle): After taking one teaspoon daily for four days take one half-teaspoon daily, as adults, (and proportional, by body weight, for children), or apply directly to cuts, scrapes and open sores, or put a few drops on a small Band-Aid and wear over warts, cuts, abrasions, or any open sore, or dab directly onto eczema or such itchy areas, or acne, mosquito bites, or any skin problem. Water is purified by adding one half-teaspoon per gallon, shake well, wait six minutes, and shake again, wait six minutes, and drink. Mix it this way, it's tasteless, and drink two quarts, over a day's time, especially with meals, as a great digestive aid, because it eliminates fermentation. It is the ideal food preservative, because it is also good for you. Use in canning at one-quarter teaspoon per quart. Those already using Colloidal Silver report that they catch milder, and fewer if any, colds or flu. The emphasis is on the prevention of all infections. There are never any side effects. It never does any harm to the liver, kidneys, any other organ, system or any part of the body. No-one has ever overdosed, regardless of the amount, as it is not at all an allopathic poison. The Intravenous Formula, (1/2 oz. bottle/adult, proportional), is often preferred as it is more long lasting and for some people, works better. Syringes are available from veterinary suppliers, like IFA. (Ref-1,7,9,11,12,d)

Recognized Remedies

The following is a partial list of the more than 650 diseases that Colloidal Silver has been used successfully against: acne, acne rosacea, AIDS (Ref-2), allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, athlete's foot, tuberculosis, bladder inflammation, blood parasites (cause gray hair), blood poisoning, boils, bubonic plague, burns, cancer (Ref-7,8), candida , chilblains, cholera, colitis , conjunctivitis, cystitis, diabetes (Ref-1), dysentery, eczema, fibrositis, gastritis, gonorrhea, hay fever, herpes, impetigo, indigestion, keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, neurasthenia, parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, pleurisy, prostate, pruritus ani, psoriasis, purulent ophthalmia, rhinitis, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, seborrhea, septicemia, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, thyroid, tonsillitis, toxemia, trachoma, trenchfoot, dermatitis, all forms of virus, warts, whooping cough, yeast infection , stomach ulcer, and also canine parvovirus and other veterinary uses. Also in all bacterial, fungal and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted Silver on the leaves and add to soil water. (Ref-1,2,3,4,7,8,11,12).


There has never been a drug interaction with any other medication. Colloidal Silver has been found to be both a remedy and a prevention for all colds, all flu, all infections and all fermentation due to any bacteria, fungus or virus, especially staph and strep, which are found present in every disease condition. Through simple high school biology studies we learn that all living things exist in the colloidal form. The body can more readily use medications already in the colloidal form, as opposed to crystalline. Colloidal Silver is the most useable form of the most effective disease fighter there is. The body actually needs Colloidal Silver to fight disease-causing organisms, and to aid healing. The adult RDA for Silver is 400 milligrams. Taken orally each day, it's like having a second immune system. Older folks feel younger because their body energies are used for something other than fighting disease, and digestion is better. Medical research has proven that Silver promotes rapid healing, with less scar tissue, even in the case of severe burns. Silver aids the developing fetus in growth, health, and eases the delivery and recovery. Fantastic successes have been reported in many cases previously given up by establishment doctors. Colloidal Silver is tasteless and won't sting, even Baby's eyes and won't upset the stomach.

It is produced today by a modernized original process, at a tiny fraction of the pre-1938 cost, and is more concentrated. Contains no free radicals, as the Silver acts only as a catalyst, and is stabilized. This is not a chemical compound containing Silver, but pure metallic silver of submicroscopic clusters of just a few atoms, held in suspension, in pure water, by the tiny electric charge on each atom. It is absolutely non-toxic, (except to one-celled plants and animals), and non-addicting. Colloidal Silver is the remedy for all infections, even the non-apparent, low-grade general body infections most people have. Parasites are also killed, as they have an egg-stage in their reproductive cycle, which is one-celled and therefore killed in six minutes or less). Keep from freezing, and in a cool, dark place. (Ref-1,2,9,12)


Use of Colloids in Health and Disease. Colloidal Silver is proven particularly effective in cases of intestinal troubles. Dr. Henry Crooks found that silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. Rather than in a chemical compounds the Silver, in the Colloidal state, may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with correspondingly better results. All fungus, virus, bacterium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, 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 in six minutes or less, at a dilution of as little as 5 parts per million, though there are no side effects whatsoever from high concentrations.


Provo Herald 13 Feb. 92, pg.D1: Colloidal Silver as a cure for AIDS.


American Drug Index, section on Inorganic Pharmaceutical Chemistry, recognized Silver for its germicidal action, calling a stabilized form: Mild Silver Protein. There are several forms of Mild silver Protein.


The Condensed Chemical Dictionary 6th Edition: Mild Silver Protein is listed for medical use, (the "Protein" is the trace used as a stabilizer).


The FDA has stated that because Colloidal Silver is (by fifty years) a pre-1938 drug, it may continue to be marketed. A 13 Sept. 1991, letter received from consumer safety officer, Harold Davis, U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Moreover, the FDA has no jurisdiction regarding a pure, mineral element.


Environmental Protection Agency's Poison control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver, considering it harmless in any concentration.


Dr. Robert Becker The Body Electric, recognized a correlation between low Silver levels and sickness. He said the Silver deficiency was 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 any cells of the body, (being tissue and not single cells). He also states that the Silver was doing something more than killing disease-causing organisms. It was also causing major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and even elderly patients noticed more rapid healing. And he discovered that all cancer cells change back to normal cells. All strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are killed by Silver. Yet at that time he couldn't find a Silver supplement on the market.


Dr.Bjorn Nordstrom, of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, has used Silver in his cancer cure method, for many years. He says the whole thing is quite simple. This brought rapid remission in patients given up by other doctors.


Silver Our Mightiest Germ Fighter Science Digest March 1978. As an antibiotic, Silver kills over 650 disease-causing organisms; resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is absolutely non-toxic. Silver is the best all around germ-fighter we have. Doctors are reporting that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera and malaria, diabetes and severe burns. 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."


Colloidal Preparations of Silver in Pharmacy British Medical Journal, Feb 1923 , Pure silver is entirely non-irritant. In tests, at very high dilution rates, exceeding two-hundred to one, it has been shown repeatedly that the rapidly exerted disinfectant action is of considerable therapeutic value.
