Colloidal Silver - The Immune System Mineral
Hi everyone, I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and happy! Being happy these days is a little harder since we really don’t know what’s around the corner with our jobs, school and where our economy will end up. I’m hoping with this blog and with my last blog on how to make Colloidal Silver, I can help make the world a little brighter and healthier.
If you know me, you know how much I love Colloidal Silver and how I drink it every day. I have been making and drinking my own CS (Colloidal Silver) for over a year and I can testify that I have not had any type of illness in over a year! No flu, no virus, no sinus infection like I used to get every spring, no allergies, nothing! You ask how? Well I believe it’s because of a natural mineral that God has given us, called Silver.
As stated in my last blog, my personal opinion is that this current virus has been around since last year (2019). Many of my customers in the store were complaining about having upper respiratory infections turning into pneumonia. I was glad that I had been drinking my Colloidal Silver during that time or I probably would have also been sick!
Silver is a natural mineral found in nature, just like magnesium, copper, zinc, etc. Most health food stores and pharmacies stock several brands of CS, and of course, you can find a lot of information about CS benefits on the Internet. Unfortunately, the information out there is confusing as many sources have conflicting opinions.
On one hand, you’ll run across thousands of personal testimonials about CS helping people with practically every disease you’ve heard about. You will also stumble upon some well-known health sites that warn consumers about safety concerns. Usually, these sources quote a statement made by the FDA in 1999 claiming that there is no scientific evidence to support the use of CS.
This type of information can confuse even the brightest natural health enthusiast, which is why I wrote this blog, to help provide some evidenced based information to help you make an informed choice and to show the many benefits of using colloidal silver!
What is the FDA's standpoint on Colloidal Silver?
Since colloidal silver was in common use as an antibiotic prior to 1938 when the FDA was created, its use was grandfathered-in and not subject to FDA approval. Many promoters of colloidal silver were upset when a 1991 letter authored by the FDA which they said, at the time, that they would not attempt to control colloidal silver if its uses were confined to pre-1938 published protocols. However, the growing popularity of colloidal since 1991, has created pressure from threatened pharmaceutical interests to get the FDA to regulate the availability of colloidal silver.
But as of Feb. 2001, the FDA now claims jurisdiction over the sale of colloidal silver and will not allow any "medical claims" be made in association with the sale of colloidal silver.
As a result, today the FDA is attempting to subvert the grandfather clause and is seeking to gain approval status over the use and production of colloidal silver on the outrageous premise that since colloidal silver has proven to be such an effective broad spectrum germ fighter in its ability to kill new strains of bacteria (not in existence in 1938), that its use should be subject to their jurisdiction!
It's clear to anyone who examines the subject, that the FDA is a champion for the pharmaceutical industry and on their behalf attempts to suppress the use of cheap, non-patentable, natural, alternative therapies at every opportunity. Silver, after all, is a harmless element of Nature, Number 47 on the Periodic Table. What business does the FDA have in attempting to regulate its use?

How Colloidal Silver Benefits
The following information was derived from works by Terry Chamberlain, B.Sc., C.N.C., Bioanalyst, The Metabolic Report. He is a proven leader in the natural health field and has decades of research resulting in the collection of numerous findings and reports.
According to a report written by Richard Davies and Samuel Etris of The Silver Institute in 1996, there are three primary ways that CS can help heal the body:
Catalytic Oxidation: Silver naturally holds onto oxygen molecules, which readily react with the sulfhydral (H) groups that surround bacterial and viruses. In turn, this helps block the life-preserving cellular process known as cellular respiration, which is defined as “the set of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellular_respiration
Reaction with Bacterial Cell Membranes: Silver ions can attach to bacteria cell membranes directly and produce the same respiration-blocking effect.
Binding with DNA: Shown to literally enter bacteria DNA, up to 12% of silver has been detected in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. According to one source, “While it remains unclear exactly how the silver binds to the DNA without destroying the hydrogen bonds holding the lattice together, it nevertheless prevents the DNA from unwinding, an essential step for cellular replication to occur.” http://educate-yourself.org/cs/csfaq.shtml
Top 15 Proven Colloidal Silver Benefits
By having a direct effect on cellular respiration, colloidal silver benefits the body in numerous ways:
1. Antibacterial - First, colloidal silver’s ability to control antibiotic-resistant super bugs is astonishing. While employed at UCLA Medical School in the 1980s, Larry C. Ford, MD, documented over 650 different disease-causing pathogens that were destroyed in minutes when exposed to small amounts of silver. https://educate-yourself.org/cs/csfaq.shtml.
Colloidal silver, unlike its modern prescription antibiotic counterpart, simply doesn’t create resistance or immunity in the organisms that are killed by it. This point cannot be emphasized enough, especially in light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reporting that more than 2 million people in the U.S. suffer illness every year as a result of antibiotic-resistant infections and 23,000 die from these infections.
2. Wound Care/Skin Health - Robert O. Becker, MD, says that CS stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues. http://www.johncfish.com/silver/index.htm
In a research article produced by Pharmacognosy Communications in 2012, it was specifically recommended that certain colloidal silver preparations should be considered for topical use to treat burns, thrush, periodontitis and other conditions.
For instance, you can treat ringworm (Tinea capitis) at home with CS because it’s a potent anti-fungal. Caused by a fungus that lives on the top layer of the skin, ringworm presents as round, scaly patches. It’s contagious and spreads by skin contact and by contaminated materials, such as clothing.
Colloidal silver benefits many skins conditions such as psoriasis and eczema as well. It’s soothing to scrapes and even repairs tissue damage from burns. https://microbewiki.kenyon.edu/index.php/Silver_as_an_Antimicrobial_Agent#Mechanism_of_action
3. Pink Eye/Ear Infections - Pink eye is an inflamed mucous membrane that covers the eyeball and eyelid lining, and it’s primarily caused by a bacterial or viral infection. CS can be used for prompt action against this irritating and highly infectious virus and bacteria. When applied on the infected eye, the tiny silver colloids pick up the infected cells by attracting them electromagnetically and sending them into the bloodstream to be eliminated.
Our modern prescription antibiotic drugs are designed to work against specific classes of bacteria, but ear infections may be caused by multiple classes of bacteria or can even be fungal. In this case, the prescription antibiotic will be useless, whereas CS is effective regardless of what may be causing your infection.
4. Antiviral - Colloidal silver benefits can be experienced as an anti-viral for HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, herpes, shingles and warts. Dr. Martin Hum, from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, lists CS as one of the natural remedies to stop viruses fast. CS suffocates the virus and can even reduce the activity of the HIV virus in AIDS patients. There are also numerous anecdotal accounts of colloidal silver’s efficacy against the hepatitis C virus.
5. Anti-Inflammatory - Colloidal silver is also a fantastic anti-inflammatory remedy. Case in point: Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) studied the effects of inflammation after being treated by CS; they found that the inflamed skin of pigs treated with silver experienced near normal skin after 72 hours, while other treatment groups not treated with silver remained inflamed. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18550449
Research is beginning to reflect what many people have already known anecdotally for years — that colloidal silver can reduce swelling, speed healing, and boosts cell recovery!
6. Sinusitis - Widely used to control sinus infections, CS can benefit people as a nasal spray, according to a study published in the International Forum for Allergy and Rhinology last year. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24431107
Specifically shown to kill Staph aureus, you can add a few drops of silver in a “neti pot” or by applying directly into your nasal cavity and letting it drain down your throat by tilting your head back.
Also, it’s important to point out that recent research indicates that hidden infections by pathogens could be a cause of respiratory inflammation associated with common allergies and asthma. Colloidal silver destroys Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, which may be the reason why airborne allergy sufferers often find such dramatic relief from colloidal silver.
7. Cold/Flu - Some claim that CS helps prevent all types of flu, including swine flu, as well as the common cold. Few studies have been done to test this clinically, but in 2011 the NIH took 100 children under the age of 12 suffering from the common cold and nasal congestion and assigned them into two groups; the first group was treated with a solution of colloidal silver and beta glucan, and the second group with saline solution. Even though both groups benefited from the treatment, 90% of the people in the colloidal silver group completely recovered! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21946445
8. Pneumonia Human Respiratory System - Our modern drugs have become limited in their efficacy when it comes to fighting bronchitis or pneumonia. Typically, antibiotics are administered as the first line of defense, but when the pneumonia is viral, antibiotics won’t help in the least. The nice thing about CS is that it can help regardless of the pathogen.
CS is a remarkable product to help fight against bronchitis and pneumonia when ingested internally, but an even more effective way to utilize it? Simply breathe it into your lungs. The most effective method to get the colloidal silver into the lungs is to use a nebulizer. Generally, use one teaspoon approximately three times a day for 10 to 15 minutes.
This way, the silver directly contacts the germs residing in the lungs, which are causing bronchitis or pneumonia. It’s basically the same thing as using respiratory support, and it works speedily, clearing it up within a couple of days. https://draxe.com/colloidal-silver-benefits
9. Ear Infection - Ear infections, which for some is a chronic condition, can be healed with colloidal silver. Silver, in liquid form, can easily be introduced into the ear canal using an eyedropper, making treatment fast, simple, and inexpensive.
10. Asthma - Often triggered by bronchial infections or an allergic reaction, asthma affects more than 22 million Americans. Nebulizing asthma with CS helps eliminate the problem, killing pathogens. Silver also helps combat mold-causing asthma.
11. Warts - HPV, or the human papilloma virus, causes warts. Some types of HPV are associated with cancerous growths, and all types are contagious, such as common warts (found on fingers) or plantar warts (found on soles of feet). Sometimes people have them on just one area of the body, such as the hands. There are over 100 varieties of wart-causing viruses, and much of it has to do with the immune system.
Children get more warts than adults, for example, because their immune system isn’t fully developed. If you get a scratch, it can introduce the HPV virus into the skin.
Also, men tend to get warts on their faces more due to shaving, while women tend to get warts on their legs, also because of shaving. CS is effective in controlling warts by applying CS to the wart at night and applying a band-aid can effectively kill it.
12. Hay Fever - CS bolsters the immune system, improving hay fever symptoms and making sneezing, fatigue, and itchy red eyes a thing of the past. Dr. Grune states, “Silver strengthens the immune system by wiping out infectious bacteria that would otherwise infect organs or blood cells.”
13. Yeast Infections, UTIs, and Bacterial Vaginosis - Vaginal burning, discharge, and soreness are classic symptoms of yeast infections. Douching with CS and water can eliminate yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. You can also apply CS topically to take care of UTIs.
14. Food Poisoning - At the first signs of feeling ill from food poisoning, you should try taking one to two ounces of CS every half hour, for several hours. This can help calm your stomach and bowels.
15. Disinfectant - Put CS in a spray bottle to disinfect all surfaces. It kills germs on contact so you can use it on everything and it's not drying to the skin.

Homemade Colloidal Silver and Cancer
Journal of Clinical Oncology/An American Society of Clinical Oncology Journal - Jasmine Singh, Farjana Fattah, Tam Burks, Jie Zheng, Xingya Jiang, Pamela Kurian
In-human activity and pharmacology of homemade silver nano-particles in highly refractory metastatic head and neck squamous cell cancer.
Background: Silver nano-particles (SNPs) show high efficacy as targeted therapy against cancer cell lines but have never been tested in patient clinical trials. We present the first in-human trial of SNPs in a cancer patient with a dramatic outcome.
Methods: Homemade SNP solution is prepared by the patient with online instructions. Current from 3 9-volt batteries is passed across 99.99% pure silver-bar electrodes in distilled water, until the metal content of the water measures 0.09-0.15 parts per million. The manufacturer is a 77-year old male who developed multiple recurrences of nasal cavity squamous cell cancer.
Over 2 years he progressed on platinum and taxane based chemotherapy, radiation twice and 2 surgical resections. Large hepatic and pulmonary metastases were observed on PET, MRI and CT; he was initiated on hospice. Without informing his oncologist he subsequently began manufacturing and consuming the SNP solution.
Results: The patient ingested 120 ml daily of the solution for 3 months leading to clinical recovery and complete resolution of cancer at all sites, persisting for 18 months. One hour after ingesting 60 ml of silver solution it rose to 46 ng/g. Urine showed no SNPs. Toxicities were not noted with this silver solution, with no evidence of myelosuppression, liver or kidney abnormalities on repeated testing. The patient underwent reconstructive surgery with excellent wound healing, and his performance status continues to improve.
Conclusions: Ingestion of a SNP solution is associated with complete regression of highly refractory head and neck cancer in the absence of other anticancer therapy. Ingesting silver solution causes a noticeable and nearly immediate rise in blood silver concentration. Given these dramatic results that may be attributed to SNP in conjunction with strong preclinical data, further patient testing of SNP should be done to confirm its safety and efficacy in head and neck cancer. https://ascopubs.org/doi/abs/10.1200/JCO.2017.35.15_suppl.e17533
Cancer and Silver Ions: http://www.silvergen.com/cancer_and_silver.htm
Quoting from Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D. “We recently completed an extensive review of the scientific literature on the safety of silver, especially as it relates to its one known potential side effect, namely, Argyria.” Argyia is an irreversible discoloration of the pigment (skin) caused by excessive silver intake or chronic exposure to silver by certain tissues. The amount of silver required to develop Argyria is estimated to be 3.8 grams per day. By comparison standard 10 ppm colloidal silver contains silver in amounts equaling less than 1 milligram of silver (1,000 micrograms = 1 milligram; 1,000 milligrams - 1 gram), which therefore represents an amount approximately 1/500th to 1/1000th of the amount of silver considered to be a risk in the development of Argyria.
Most cases of Argyria reported in the medical literature over the last 100 years involved chronic intravenous or intramuscular use of the silver preparations, most often involving a silver drug prescribed by physicians which in most cases contained silver nitrate. We could not locate a single case of orally consumed colloidal silver manufactured in the last 25 years causing Argyria in our review of the literature. This is probably due to the low levels of silver contained in such preparations, since only very small amounts of silver are needed for its antiseptic effect. Humans consume approximately 100 micrograms of silver every day in the diet. Additional amounts within this range would be considered safe by all reasonable estimates, especially if the amount needed to develop Argyria would be equivalent of 380,000 micrograms (or 3.8 grams) of silver a day.
As for the efficacy of silver preparations, we found considerable scientific evidence published over the last 75 years that several silver compounds can be effective germicidal (antiseptic) agents against several hundred pathogenic organisms. However, silver is not termed an antibiotic as some have claimed because an antibiotic is derived from a living organism. Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D. Director, Life Sciences Division John Hopkins University
A new European Union Drinking Water Standard in draft form has removed any limitations on silver in drinking water following the World Health Organization’s “Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality” which states, "It is unnecessary to recommend any health-based guidelines for silver as it is not hazardous to human health."
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Poison Control Center, CS is considered harmless. Dr. Samuel Etris, a senior consultant at the Silver Institute, says there has never been any allergenic, toxic or carcinogenic reactions to CS.
The U.S. Government’s Center for Disease Control confirmed that fact in 1995. The term Argyria describes the condition of a bluish gray color of the skin, and Argyosis the bluing of the eye white, resulting from the use of SILVER COMPOUNDS.
To better understand the misconception regarding Argyria, I will quote from the book "The Micro Silver Bullet”™ by Dr. M. Paul Farber 1996 page XII (ISBN 1-887742-00-X) In reference to a "Journal of American Medical Association" article, October 18 1995, volume 274 # 15, where cases of Argyria were cited to have been caused by silver compounds (not colloidal silver, but silver mixed with other metals), note: "These Case history presentations represent biased and unprofessional writing. The author's apparent inability to understand the difference between a silver nitrate, sulfide, or other silver compound demonstrates their lack of understanding of basic chemical properties.
The Environmental Protection Agency's Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver; it is therefore considered harmless in any concentration. https://www.earthbornproducts.com/colloidal-silver-safety/
That’s a lot of information, and I’ve only touched the surface of all the benefits and uses of Colloidal Silver!
Here's a site with lots of information you would have a hard time finding on your own. This site also has a FORUM page so you can either add a testimonial or view testimonials of other colloidal silver users. http://www.silvermedicine.org/
I hope this has helped to entice you to look even further into the benefits of Colloidal Silver and how it can help you boost your immune system to stay healthy!
