"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
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
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
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

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. Well 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, were still left with an unattached negative terminal on the first battery
and an unattached positive terminal on the third battery. Well 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 dont
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, well 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 dont monitor the reaction, the
current flow will rise to excessive levels, and youll 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 Athletes Foot & Diaper Rash to Poison Ivy. Youll
be amazed and pleasantly surprised by the results. The ideas listed below are designed
merely to stimulate your imagination. Dont limit yourself by assuming that this list
is exhaustive. Its only the beginning! Remember, you need to try it in order to see
for yourself what silver colloid can do.
If youre 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 doctors 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
Pet lovers need to add a capful to their pets drinking water and spray inside opened
cans of pet food that are stored in the refrigerator. Add a cupful to birdbaths, the dogs
bath or your bath. Of course, spray it into Fluffys fur and skin if she has any type
of eczema, skin sore, abrasion, or a wound that wont 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 youve
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
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
"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
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
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
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
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)
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)
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
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.
