water droplet 263x164 Colloidal Silver Benefits: The Truth About Colloidal SilverHave you heard of a ‘miracle’ product known as colloidal silver? The basic reason for any colloidal silver efficacy and safety controversy is that the medical establishment (medical mafia) and the pharmaceutical industry (Big Pharma) see colloidal silver as a financial threat. While you may have been cautioned against using colloidal silver, know that colloidal silver benefits are tried and true.

Both the medical establishment and Big Pharma have put silver medical products to work in hospital equipment and medical tools as well as anti-infection burn remedies to prevent MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) infections, which are potentially lethal and have become antibiotic resistant.

Yet the medical establishment promotes fear mongering lies through various media outlets and threatens colloidal silver manufacturers through various federal, state, and local health agencies.

The difference between their medical products and colloidal silver is patent rights that yield royalties for several years. Colloidal silver can be made by anyone with inexpensive equipment and it can’t be patented.

As of January 2009, the EU has banned colloidal silver manufacturing in its European member nations. Whenever Codex Alimentarius gets “harmony” compliance from the USA, the same will happen here.

So now is the right time to stock up and try it yourself or buy a kit permitting you to make it yourself indefinitely.

How Colloidal Silver (CS)Works and Colloidal Silver Benefits

Many consider colloidal silver an antiseptic and not an antibiotic because it kills more than bacteria; it destroys viruses and eliminates fungal infections. So far, bacteria that are resistant to silver haven’t developed, while colloidal silver can destroy antibiotic-resistant pathogens, even the dreaded MRSA.

As a matter of fact, now the medical mafia has been covertly adding colloidal silver into antibiotics to conquer the super-bug strains that have developed immunity to those antibiotics. I say covertly because they aren’t talking too much about it!

Keep in mind that while antibiotics don’t touch viruses and fungus’s, colloidal silver eliminates them – making colloidal silver benefits incredibly useful. It eliminates anaerobic pathogens by destroying the enzymes that fend off oxygen molecules, thus oxidizing them to death.

Conversely, the silver nano-particles neutralize the minority of aerobic pathogens by disrupting their ability to use oxygen. This begs the question: will colloidal silver destroy friendly gut bacteria the way pharmaceutical antibiotics do? Some colloidal silver advocates claim it is so readily assimilated into the blood through the stomach and gut linings before it can linger in the lower intestines where our friendly bacteria mostly reside. Therefore,  it isn’t an issue.

Others consider electrical charge bonding as the main factor for eliminating pathogens while sparing gut friendly bacteria. Most friendly bacteria are not negatively charged, eliminating any attraction to the positively charged silver particles.

However, a couple of key colloidal advocates, one from whom I purchased my colloidal silver making machine, don’t think that the intestinal flora issue has been clearly established. They recommend the following:

  • Have probiotic materials on hand and use them an hour or more after ingesting colloidal silver.
  • Swish and hold a dose of colloidal silver in your mouth to absorb most of the particles sublingually into the bloodstream through the capillaries under and around your tongue as long as possible before swallowing.
  • Nebulize the colloidal silver solution, making it go directly into your bloodstream via the lungs blood vessels.

As magnetic scavengers, they don’t have to collide into pathogens by chance the way antibiotics do. Because the tiny colloidal silver particles (colloids) have strong positive charges, they are attracted to or attract negatively charged microbes, including viruses.

How It’s Made

A colloidal silver solution is made from a small electrical current applied to silver strips placed in distilled water. After some time, the distilled water becomes flooded with tiny nanoparticles of silver.

The liquid itself should be clear, and it’s important that it be shielded from sunlight exposure. As the nanoparticles get oxidized from light exposure and they settle out of solution, coloration occurs.

Since colloidal silver may become banned someday, because it’s so effective and safe, it would be wise to purchase the apparatus for making your own to protect you from epidemics, whether incidental or created. Its cost makes future colloidal silver use very cost-effective.

Here a site I have personally used for reasonably priced silver or gold colloidal products and a silver colloidal machine.

Big Pharma’s Colloidal Silver Bad Press

The blue grandpa “smurf” photos of Paul Karason’s Argyria (an almost permanent blue skin disease) has made the mainstream media rounds for anti colloidal silver propagandists.

What isn’t mentioned is that Paul made his own crude large particle colloidal silver and drank at least a pint and up to quart a day for years! The normal dosage is a teaspoonful one to three times daily, depending on the severity of infection.

Another disinformation meme is that the silver accumulates in the kidneys and creates a toxic situation. This would only happen if the kidneys are already defective, and even then accumulation factor has not been actually established or proven.

    A small Utah biotech company created a very different type of silver colloid almost 20 years ago. Instead of ionic silver in suspension, their very high voltage process (80,000 volts AC) bonds pure elemental silver nanoparticles to the water molecules. They are extremely stable and will never settle out. This also is far more bioavailable than conventional silver colloids. The process now has two US Patents, and the actual silver particle now has its own US Patent.
    This is the only silver colloid manufacturer that has performed extensive safety and effectivity studies. There are now over 300 university, government/military and independent laboratory and clinical research documents demonstrating its safety and effectiveness. Some of those peer reviewed and published documents can be read here http://www.lifesilver.com/v1/studies.htm . Pretty impressive stuff. Two to three times more effective than conventional low voltage produced ionic colloids.
    Viridis BioPharma, in Mumbai , India, discovered, in human testing, that these products also do not harm intestinal probiotics, so no probiotic supplementation is necessary (see the published study at above link). Poorly made, larger particle ionic colloids will indeed enter the lower gastrointestinal tract and wreck havoc on the natural gut flora.

    Properly made low voltage ionic silver preparations are better than no silver, but nano-catalytic silver hydrosols are head and shoulders superior. Nano-catalytic silver hydrosol is the name that the Penn State University Materials Science lab team gave this new solution during their 4 year study of it. That peer reviewed and published study is also available at the above link.

    I just started making my own Colloidal silver. A 9volt battery works well and I read that the designer of NASA s water purification for the ISS felt as low as 0.9volts could be used also. So, I took some of the 5ppm Cs that I had made with a 9volt and put it my system again only powered it with a 1.2volt Lithium cell this time . He was right!!!!! It took about 30 hours but I was able to upgrade the 5ppm Colloidal silver to 20ppm .
    2 Troy ounces of .999 Fine Silver will make about 1500 gallons @ 10 ppm as far as I know . 473ml sells for around $38 in my area so one bottle covers the cost of the 2 oz of silver

    My daughter contracted molluscum from dirty gym mats when she was 5. The Dr said it will take 7+ years for it to play-out and go away. We purchased a CS Generator and dabbed Silver on the lesions, within 2 months all signs and lesions of the Molluscum where gone.

    Thus the term biuebloods!

    When making CS, instead of using batteries, why not use a solar panel?
    Also, what is the preferred voltage to use when making CS?
    Would 250 volts work OK?

    So, true, big drug companies are putting out false info on colloidal silver, saying that it doesn’t work, or that you’ll turn gray or blue. Bologna, I’ve used it on and off for years and I’m still not blue. I think the best colloidal silver is from Advanced Silver company, but some other 10ppm ionic colloidal silvers are pretty good, too. According to Canadian health officials the ionic form is most effective, despite what the makers of higher PPM solutions claim. Stick with 10ppm and you’ll be fine.

    I have done some research on colloidal silver and while the benefits are real for 'nano-particles of silver', not so much for ion-particles. Most machines that use electricity are ion-generators. They make ionic silver particles. These are unstable as an electron is stripped off in the process. Upon ingesting, these particles will seek to stabilize by combining with other atoms, say a chlorine atom, which makes a silver chloride atom and is useless for medicinal purposes. I am not a chemist, but it appears that the silver ion-generators for sale are not the optimum way to get colloidal silver. Any comments or help out there?

    Could not find the machine that you said that you purchased.

    Years ago, babies were given a silver spoon and a silver cup at birth. Silverware was not just conspicuos consumption I suggest all of the above and/or sucking on a silver coin 30 minutes a day.

    I was disappointed with CS when I used it on an infected place on my leg. I had had a mole removed which got infected so I started using the CS instead of going back to the doctor for an antibiotic cream. The infection steadily got worse and so after several days, I had to resort to an antibiotic cream which started working with one application. (My doctor laughed when I told her what I had used and chastised me big time which is typical.)

      That's what happens when you go to a female doctor, never ever would I have a female doctor.

    I'm glad to find your site. I've been using colloidal silver for many years and I have my own machine. However I need to get some more diodes. Can you tell me where? Also I'm wondering if it can be made without electricity, just in case. Thanks

    • Aaron

      The website he mentioned in the article sells them.

      I would think that you can create this without 110V, but you'd need DC in the form of batteries.

    I have been using colloidal silver for a few years, and it is miraculous. I've not had the nerve to ingest it due to my concern of turning gray or blue or whatever it is. When I mention it to my doctors, they all say they never heard of it.
