Your Survival May Depend on This; Don’t Forget to Pack This Away!

When there is no doctor or antibiotics, what then?

You have food reserves to get you through an emergency. Some water. Probably some gold or silver. Maybe some defense weapons. But medical help will probably be no more available than food, and under these conditions, disease and infections will probably be rampant. Ordinary first aid supplies are obviously not enough.

But there is good news and its called “colloidal silver”. From the time man first learned to work with silver he has known that it prevented the spread of disease. Thus the wealthy people had silver drinking cups, silver tableware and utensils. Even those who could have had gold, which does not tarnish, usually chose silver because it promoted health. In the days before refrigeration, farmers tossed a silver coin in a bucket of milk to preserve it. Chemists put a silver dime in their petri dish to sterilize it. For hundreds of years it was common practice to place a silver wire in an infected wound that refused to heal.

The difference between survival and not

All of this makes colloidal silver perfect for survival conditions. It has such a broad spectrum of effectiveness (practically all bacteria, virus, yeasts, molds, parasites) and at the same time has a miraculous healing quality. Most people taking it orally say they feel better and notice more energy. It even prevents plaque from forming on teeth. Therefore, an exact diagnosis is not required as with antibiotics. If the mouth is rinsed with one ounce daily and then swallowed, the plaque is stopped, gingivitis is soon healed, the breath is sweet, colds and flues are gone, candida is soon cleared up, yeast infections of the blood disappear, the immune system is restored! Internal surgeries heal much faster and with much less scarring!

Colloidal silver can be used orally, topically, by enema, douche, or by a doctor intravenously. The exact dosage is not critical because it is non-toxic at virtually all levels. However, common practice is to start orally with about one ounce a day at 20 parts per million as a maintenance dosage. When treating a chronic internal condition, that dosage could be doubled each day until a dosage of four ounces in the morning and four ounces in the evening at 20 parts per million is reached. Always watch for a rash breaking out on the skin when first taking colloidal silver. This is not an allergic reaction or a side effect in the common sense. It is usually caused by killing off yeast in the blood or intestines so fast that the body cannot properly dispose of them. It is a healthy sign but may be very uncomfortable due to itching. Furthermore, you do not want to overload the body’s cleansing abilities. Therefore it is best to reduce the intake of colloidal silver when this occurs. when the rash disappears, as it normally does in a day or so, gradually increase it.

When disaster strikes

Colloidal silver is especially valuable in case of disaster as well as whenever camping or traveling because the water often cannot be trusted. One ounce of colloidal silver at 20 parts per million in one quart of water assures the safety of the water for drinking. It is the finest disinfectant known, being totally non-toxic and non allergenic as well an non-caustic. Used on the scalp, it stops most cases of itching. It is great for the hands and face and reduces skin wrinkling over a period of time. It heals warts (virus), athletes foot, and nail fungus. It effectively treats many skin rashes although some rashes get worse before getting better.

The only natural antibiotic that lasts forever!

Herpies, Acne and the Cat


I was introduced to CS about 4 years ago.

I began making my own and everyone in my family now uses it. Prior to finding CS someone would be sick in my family almost weekly. Now none of us are ever sick any more. We rarely ever even start to get anything, and if we do start getting a sore throat or feeling ill, we take a couple of ounces of 5 ppm CS and the symptoms always go away within a few minutes. Here are a few of the things we have found CS works for.

  • Flu or cold. At first sign we take a couple of ounces. If it hasn’t gone away in an hour, we take a couple more ounces. Always works.
  • Food poisoning. At the first sign of food poisoning drink several ounces of 5 ppm CS and the symptoms will disappear within a minute or two. If you wait until it reaches the intestines CS does not have much effect. We have had success with food poisoning 3 or 4 times in the last few years.
  • My wife’s brother was going to have an operation for his ulcers. After taking CS they healed.
  • When I put it in the water for my Christmas tree, the needles no longer fall off. Instead of dropping needles daily, it keeps them until April, even though the tree has been removed from the water and thrown in the woods behind the house after New Years.
  • My herpies simplex (fever blisters) have gone away. I use to get an outbreak every month or so, but have had NONE after starting CS 4 years ago.
  • When mixed with aloe vera I found that it does wonders on acne. Completely cleared up my son’s acne when everything else had failed. 
  • Our cat got in a fight a couple of weeks ago. She had a badly wounded paw, and a gapping hole in her chest. We took he to the vet and they said the only thing to do was to put her on antibiotics, and keep her inside until it healed. They wanted to give her some antibiotics, but I told them CS would work fine. We gave her CS in her water and applied to the open wounds. Then never got infected and she recovered fine.
  • My sister had lyme disease. Antibiotics only helped, but could never get rid of it. She finally got rid of it using CS, ozonated water, Hulda Clark’s zapper and Bob Beck’s magnetic pulsar.
  • My sister found that watering her plants with CS eliminated the problem she was having with mold growing in the soil of her house plants.
  • She also found that spraying her roses eliminated the black spot that was causing problems.
  • We use it under the arms as a deodorant. Stops the odor immediately without stopping the perspiration.
  • We put it in a spray bottle when we eat out and always spray our hands with it before eating.
  • I have placed CS in a nebulizer several times when people had serious lung infections, close to going to the hospital   with pneumonia, and in every   case they were well within 12 to 48 hours.

Colloidal Silver Health Craze: Care to Know the Facts?

Silver – The Dark Side of a Health Craze

Silver is toxic!

Claims that it is safe have come primarily from the companies that make silver products – hardly a trustworthy source of unbiased information. (Yet this is exactly how Pharman works!) Silver in any form is a bio-accumulative toxic metal, like mercury, lead, and arsenic. Its action as an antibiotic comes from the fact that it is a non-selective toxic “biocide.”

It is known – and acknowledged – that long-term use of colloidal silver or silver salts deposits metallic silver under the skin, turning people’s skin an ashen-gray color, an affliction known as argyria. Argyria is considered permanent. It also accumulates in internal organs, continually exposing the cells of those organs to silver, wreaking unknown havoc, and it is likely that it actually interferes with the body’s normal immune processes. (Every major colloidal silver toxicity study in history concludes that silver, in its elemental state is benign.)

The former manufacturer of one of these products – Seasilver – actually claimed at the time that silver is an “essential” nutrient. This was an outright falsehood. The human body has no need or use for silver. The health claims made by the company – that it was an effective treatment for 650 different health problems – were so outrageous that they received a “cease and desist” order from the Federal Trade Commission in June, 2003, and now the company, allegedly “reconstituted,” sells an innocuous product made from Aloe Vera, fruit juices, Pau D’Arco Extract, and some obscure sea herbs. (How does dragging up history of how a single manufacturer behaves got to do with silver toxicity?)

Silver as a historical antibiotic

Silver was used through the ages as a germ-killing agent because at those times they had few other choices. There were no antibiotics, and no natural germ-fighters had been discovered. (false, humans have been using colloidal silver for over 4,000 years for medicinal purposes.) Because people in general did not know that it was important to take large amounts of vitamin C (most people still don’t), their immune systems were severely compromised for much of their lives. Thus silver was considered a life-saving medicine. Silver nitrate drops were used to prevent eye infections in newborns, for instance. (Which worked just fine for 10’s of millions of children born in the USA)

Silver was (appropriately) essentially dropped from use in the U.S. with the introduction of antibiotics and biochemical antiseptics, but suddenly gained popularity again in the 1990s. The FDA proposed banning silver in over-the-counter products in 1997, and issued a final rule in 1999, but never acted on it.

The silver manufacturers claim that they are not subject to any federal laws about safety because silver was used before the Food and Drug Act – that they are grandfathered. Of course this begs the question: so were lead and mercury preparations and many other extremely toxic “medicines” that have since been banned from commerce. (Show just one death from colloidal silver toxicity; there is noe. there were 186,000 deaths in 2010 from side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Which might be safer?)

Silver has no purpose in the human body

Silver is not used in any known physiological process in the human body. It is treated by the body as a toxic metal, chelated and removed extremely slowly by proteins called metallothioneins. This removal process can easily be overwhelmed, leading to argyria. Silver has an affinity to cell membranes, including those of nerve cells, where it deposits permanently as silver sulfide. This is a typical pattern of heavy metal toxicity. (Silver is not a “heavy Metal” it is a nobel metal like gold)

Colloidal Silver proponents claim their product is safe

The people who promote colloidal silver claim their products are safe because their silver is “different.” The people who promote silver proteins and metallic silver say the same thing about their products. Think about these claims in the context of the previous paragraph. Whether the silver enters the body as a colloid in suspension or as metallic silver or as integrated into a protein, the human body treats it the same way – as a foreign object made of a toxic metal – and the removal process is the same.

Silver causes immune dysfunction

When the human immune and detoxification system encounters a foreign, non-metabolic metal such as silver, it goes into overdrive in its attempt to detoxify and remove it, as described above. Glutathione, the primary detoxifying antioxidant, is utilized in this process. If the person has a chronic illness such as hepatitis C, the glutathione that had been utilized in detoxifying free radical toxins is now siphoned off into silver detoxification. The result could be a sudden progression of the disease, the exact opposite of what the silver proponents claim. This actually happened to one of my clients: he took colloidal silver and his ALT and AST counts suddenly increased, indicating disease progression. ( Some simple logic here; if colloidal silver kills bacteria, virus and fungus, would that increase or decrease the load on the human immunce system? Duh….

Silver is unnecessary

To put this debate more in perspective, even if it were safe, silver is also completely unnecessary. If people were to take sufficient vitamin C and other immune support nutrients, their immune systems would be strong enough to fight off most bacterial and fungus attacks. People who take large quantities of vitamin C each day rarely get ill, and when they do the course of the illness is much shorter and milder. For extremely virulent diseases, there are safe natural antibiotics and anti-fungal agents that are much more powerful and potent than silver that are derived from food and medicinal herbs.

Andrographis, resveratrol, green tea extract, turmeric extract, oregano oil, and olive leaf extract are good examples of natural antibiotics that also have other, health-promoting features. Both green tea extract and turmeric extract are also potent selective chemotherapeutic agents for cancer – they cause cancer cells to self-destruct – and they are also powerful anti-inflammatory aids. Oregano oil and olive leaf extract have been shown to effectively kill pathogenic bacteria, viruses, funguses, and protozoa such as malaria, and they have been helpful in treating the opportunistic infections of AIDS victims.

This is one of the few times when I believe the government should act to ban a health “supplement.” Silver is fine for coins and jewelry (although for earrings it should have a stainless steel hook for pierced ears). But silver compounds should not be sold in products that people consume. I believe silver is a clear and present danger to anyone who consumes it. Furthermore, having this “supplement” available provides ammunition for the drug companies and other anti-natural supplement forces for full FDA regulation of supplements, which would kill the entire natural supplement industry. (Finally, the author makes a valid point; silver compounds should be banned since they are toxic, but that is not what this article is about, is it?)

Colloidal Silver News

What’s New in Colloidal Silver News?

If silver is so toxic to human cells, one would think that the bluest of the rare blue people, “Papa Smurf” Paul Karason, who made his own homemade ionic silver with tap water, added salt to it and consumed over a quart a day for years, would be deathly ill. Instead, he was given a clean bill of health at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Speaking of PubMed searches, if you do a search for “colloidal silver and death” you find exactly one reference – and it was to a elderly patient where other complications could not be ruled out. Now do the same search on pharmaceutical drug deaths and don’t be shocked!

Millions of people have used colloidal silver for centuries

So where are all the deaths from this supposed “poison”. For that matter, where are all the tribes of smurfs?

Prior to the advent of patentable and more profitable antibiotics, medicines containing silver were the most widely prescribed infection fighters by doctors and there were no fewer than 34 different approved prescription and over the counter medications which contained silver. Now, after the elimination of most large particle and silver nitrate products and after improved technology has made nano-sized particles that require far less parts per million, colloidal silver proponents claim that it is safer and more effective than ever. At the same time, however, it has become the subject of increasing attacks by mainstream medicine, which labels colloidal silver as a scam, as quackery and as a dangerous substance with no proven value.

When it is pointed out that colloidal and nano-silver are used by NASA, Potters for Peace, the Hong Kong Subway System, Cure-Aid, and major hospital burn units, the detractors often concede that perhaps it works externally; however, they maintain that when it is taken internally it causes dangerous toxicity due to silver build-up. In a familiar refrain when it comes to silver and other alternatives to mainstream drugs, it is also claimed that colloidal silver taken internally has no “scientifically” proven benefits. One of the most widely publicized warnings is that colloidal silver causes people to turn blue due to a skin condition known as argyria.

Yet, the EPA says that 90-95% of ingested silver particles are eliminated from the body within two days and 99% are gone within a week

When it comes to scientific studies regarding the benefits of internal silver, last year it was reported that researchers in Hungary found specific silver receptors on human tissue – an indication that silver plays an important role in human health. A joint study between the University of Texas and Mexico University published in the Journal of Nanotechnology showed that silver nano-particles of sizes 1-10nm attached to HIV-1 prevented the virus from bonding to host cells.

Another study, conducted by the Department of Microbiology at Kyungpook National University in Daegu, Korea, and published in the prestigious Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology, found that nano-silver was comparable in effectiveness to Amphotericin B, one of the most powerful prescription antifungal drugs known to man, which is often used intravenously to cure serious systemic fungal infections. The same study also found that nan-silver was superior to the well-known anti-fungal drug fluconazole (popularly known as Diflucan).

In a recently completed study conducted by researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine and the University of Akron, Ohio, and presented at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society, researchers infected a group of mice with the bacteria Pseudomona aeroginosa. Psuedomona aeroginosa is a common cause of bacterial pneumonia in humans, especially those on ventilators, those with cystic fibrosis or those with compromised immune systems. Once infected, all the mice then inhaled aerosolized nano-particles once per day. In half of the mice, these particles contained antimicrobial particles known as silver carbene complexes (SCCs).

Mice that inhaled the SCCs had significantly lower concentrations of bacteria in their lungs than mice inhaling placebo nano-particles. Most significantly, none of the mice in the SCC group died, while all the mice in the control group did.

Were all those doctors who prescribed silver products and the scientists who conducted the studies liars, scammers and/or quacks?

Or could it be that mainstream medicine and its advocates are attacking colloidal silver because it really does represent a threat to the hundreds of billions in profits from patented drugs?

Meanwhile millions of people around the world are taking colloidal silver and reporting cures of pneumonia, staph, candida, MRSA, Chrohns, Lyme, the H1N1 flu, and much more.

NutraSilver proven safe in FDA-certified lab tests

Humans have used silver in some form for at least 2,000 years without any known deaths or any reports of harm being done (at least we can’t find any)

We believe that you are entitled to see real proof from FDA-certified independent labs that follow Good Lab Practices (GLP) and are recognized by the International Standards Organization (ISO).

These lab reports are just a few examples of how powerful NutraSilver® is when it comes to killing these tested pathogens in in-vitro lab tests. Tests from around the world demonstrate the amazing “germ-killing power” when you read these following laboratory tests results.

Here are some important facts about NutraSilver:

NutraSilver Effectiveness

 NutraSilver has undergone extensive testing by third-party independent laboratories, validating its effectiveness in killing a variety of water- born bacteria.

There is no doubt that more research is warranted and we invite those interested in discovering the entire truth about the effectiveness of NutraSilver to identify themselves and work together to unravel the mysteries  of  and how NutraSilver can play a role science.




Colloidal Silver Myths Exposed

Colloidal Silver Dosage

The quantity of colloidal silver dosage should be strictly followed as it could lead to unexpected reactions or toxicity. Bacteria, fungi or viruses become resistant to various treatments when antibiotics are not used according to recommended guidelines. Suggested colloidal silver dosage, which is a food supplement and not an antibiotic, varies from one manufacturer to another. Since there are no conclusive studies about it, each company will have different strengths and suggested uses. First, when taking colloidal silver, the adage if a little is good a lot is better does not apply, do not use more than directed by the manufacturer, this will help prevent possible side effect such as argyria, which causes the skin to have a bluish hue.

The common colloidal silver dosage varies according to the potency of the formula. Some people use multiple

3600 PPM NutraSilver is lab-tested for safety

colloidal silver dosages wherein it is consumed three to four times in 24 hours; unless this is listed on the packaging it is not recommended. Aside from orally ingested colloidal silver, creams, sprays, gels and lotions may also be effective when they are applied externally to the affected area. Commercial preparations including silver sulfadiazine are available for treatment of infections and on burns, they may be available over the counter or require a prescription depending on location.

Colloidal silver dosage will vary according to the strength of the solution and should only be taken according to the manufacturers recommendations. For people who make their own colloidal silver it is highly recommended to do more research as the potency of the formula will likely be much higher than what is prepared commercially. Many cases of negative side effects such as argyria are linked to home made preparations. Commercially, the food supplement is available in different preparations, strengths, lotions, creams etc, at different drug stores and online stores. Before planning to purchase and consume colloidal silver, it is recommended to consult a physician so ensure that it will not interfere with prescribed medicines or create complications.

Colloidal silver has a long history including its use as a preservative and water treatment.  It’s use as an anti-microbial has lent itself to a holistic approach of enhancing the immune system to fight against invading bacteria, although it may only be promoted and sold as a health supplement. Colloidal silver nanoparticles travel throughout the cells when they are ingested. Various colloidal silver food supplements are present in the market today because it is thought to combat bacteria and protect healthy living cells.

Powerful Properties of Colloidal Silver

Before penicillin was discovered, silver was found out to be an effective treatment for infections. It was proven to kill 650 microorganisms or more.  Silver was historically considered to be available only to the elite. Recent studies revealed that silver or colloidal silver, in its’ newest form, leaves no antibiotic resistant mutations unlike penicillin. It is thought to possibly eliminate the presence of Staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus, salmonella and many others in the body. Colloidal silver nanoparticles may even destroy the multiple-drug resistant bacterial strains, like MRSA.

In addition to the silver’s antibiotic properties, it may also serve as an anti-fungal, wherein it could block the respiratory mechanisms of fungi, yeasts and molds. These pathogens can be treated with colloidal silver spray or creams; however it does not replace a visit with the doctor. On the other hand, colloidal silver has also been found to possibly be an anti-parasitic and anti-viral drug. It can kill parasites even at its’ egg-producing stages.  That is why some gardening, farming and household disinfectants have colloidal silver nanoparticles as it can kill parasites at their smallest form. Its effect as a catalyst may neutralize the enzymes of bacteria, virus, or fungi.

Colloidal silver gained popularity all over the world due to the benefits some people feel they have derived from its use.  There are many testimonies coming from different people that would support the effectiveness of the colloidal silver. However, some countries prohibit the selling of colloidal silver because it was found to be toxic to the human body in large quantities as well as lacking the official stamp of approval although it has been used for centuries.

Argyria (turning blue)

The World Health Organization states “The only obvious sign of silver overload is argyria, a condition in which skin and hair are heavily discolored by silver in the tissues. An oral NOAEL for argyria in humans for a total lifetime intake of 10 grams of silver was estimated on the basis of human case reports and long-term animal experiments.”

  • In order to reach 10 grams of NutraSilver® in the human body, one would have to ingest many hundreds of bottles over a lifetime.  Do you know anyone who would do that?The US EPA stated “Many different silver products have been and are still being used throughout the medical industry. Up until the advent of chemical antibiotics, as we now know them, which came about in the 1940s, some very strong silver products were being used as antibiotics. Of the millions of people who used these concentrated silver products, there were no reported deaths and only 239 reported cases of generalized argyria.”   (EPA Report ECAO- CIN-026, January 1991, page VI-3). NutraSilver ® has exactly two ingredients: 
    1. Real silver from a silver mine 

    2. Clustered double-distilled water 

How many ‘Blue’ people have you met?  Our guess is none.There are a few people around that are blue because they seriously abused silver COMPOUNDS in their home-brew concoctions, NOT COLLOIDAL SILVER! It is reasonably safe to say that if you were to buy ANY store-bought silver today, it would have silver ions or silver particles in the low-nano range, so it should be nearly impossible to get argyria from them unless seriously abused.

NutraSilver® Money-back Guarantee; We pledge to our customers that NutraSilver® will satisfy your reason for purchasing. Therefore, NutraSilver® comes with a money back guarantee for 60 days from shipment.

Common Cold Remedy?

Sore throat, reduced antibiotic use and sinus remedy

“I have no tonsils due to my parents having them removed when I was a child and being a first line of defense I usually catch a few colds per year and most give me a bad bacterial infection and sore throat and I go to the doctor and get antibiotics for the throat but since being introduced to silver products, I rarely have to go the doctors anymore and too much antibiotics is not a good thing.

I have tried quite a few of the silver products out there and NutraSilver seems to be the most powerful I have tried, I can gargle with it and feel it working! Normally my colds seem to take 7-12 days to overcome and with NutraSilver sometimes it’s over in usually 6-8 days and the severity is not as bad.

I have also used it on skin sores and they heel quickly, and use it in a 4:1 ratio in a spray bottle for the nose as I often have sneezing attacks and it will clean out the sinuses quickly and stop sneezing. I do not want to be without NutraSilver and I do tell people about this product and that the makers offer a money back guarantee if not satisfied…So what do you really have to lose? “


Nano-silver; the EPA Has Safely Regulated Nano-silver for Decades

There seems to be a great deal of MIS-information regarding nano-sized colloidal silver.  Here the EPA Advisory Council discuss some real, verifiable and historic information as to the safety and efficacy of true colloidal silver products.
(Nanowerk News) The Silver Nanotechnology Working Group (SNWG), an industry effort intended to foster the collection of data on silver and nanotechnology in order to advance the science and public understanding of the beneficial uses of silver nanoparticles in a wide-range of consumer and industrial products, made a detailed presentation to the recent EPA Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) meeting to discuss the topic “Evaluation of Hazard and Exposure Associated with Nanosilver and Other Nanometal Oxide Pesticide Products (Arlington VA, November 3-6, 2009). Key conclusions from the presented analysis include:

Nanosilver: Over 100 years old

Nanosilver is not a new material. The assumption of nanosilver being a new material with fears of new properties and new unknown hazards is at the heart of both regulatory and many popular perceptions about nanosilver. However, contrary to assumptions of newness, nanosilver materials are old and have been well known throughout the ages. Indeed, nanosilver has been rationally manufactured and used commercially for over a century.
Many different terminologies have been used throughout scientific history to describe ultra-small silver particles including “colloidal silver”, “millimicron silver” and among other terms the current “nanosilver” terminology. Accordingly, while the term “nanosilver” is new, the technology it represents is not.
The SNWG provided the SAP meeting with a detailed historical and technical analysis that demonstrated that these materials have a long established commercial history as engineered particles of nanoscale size.¹ Despite changes in terminology, the underlying material being described is in fact the same that has been used for decades. i.e. nanoscale silver.

EPA has a long history of safely regulating nanosilver

The EPA has been safely and successfully regulating nanosilver products for decades. These products have been used in a wide range of consumer applications such as swimming pool treatments and drinking water filters with an established record under FIFRA of regulated and safe use dating as far back as the 1950’s.

A detailed look at the depth of history of silver within the EPA shows that the toxicological studies that form the basis of the EPA’s general hazard limits for silver derive from historical data from nanoscale silver materials and not ‘conventional (bulk) silver’ as is often mistakenly assumed.
A careful examination of the EPA public registration database (NPIRS Public) for silver over a period of 6 decades reveals:
·  The very first registered silver product was a colloidal nanosilver algaecide product that has been safely used by millions of consumers for over 50 years (registered since 1954). 

  • ·  Every EPA silver registration between 1970 and 1990 was either a colloidal nanosilver or nanosilver-composite product.
  • ·  The very first NON-nanosilver product registered by EPA was not registered until 1994.
  • ·  An overall analysis reveals that today over 50% of all EPA registered silver products are in fact based on nanoscale silver.

Regulatory Relevance

Doctor discussing the many benefits of Colloidal Silver Use

EPA has a range of existing regulatory structures that have successfully addressed silver materials across the size spectrum for over 5 decades. Throughout this period, the EPA has not recorded any incidents of significance on the Agency’s formal incident reporting database (EPA OPP IDS) – indicating that thorough monitoring of real-life use supports the safety of these products.

The EPA should be congratulated for this record of successful monitoring and risk management for these materials despite different terminologies being used throughout this period of time.
Indeed, given that with nanosilver there is perhaps more historical data and evidence of safe use than for many other regulated materials, EPA has the opportunity to assess nanosilver products with confidence given this long history of safe use under existing EPA regulations.
The following themes are vital for consideration of an informed regulatory approach:
Nanosilver is NOT a new material – EPA needs to look beyond general conceptions of nano terminology and consider the broader established regulatory record of nanoscale silver products within the Agency.
Nanosilvers have seen decades of safe use in real-life – Given the long history of safe use for EPA-registered nanoscale silver products (stretching back as far as 1954) calls for treatment of nanosilver as a new material requiring development of expensive new test regimes and discriminatory regulatory consideration are difficult to justify.

Colloidal Silver: How It Works

What is Colloidal Silver For?

The presence of colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogendisables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, thepathogen suffocates and dies, and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and eliminationsystems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, which destroy beneficial enzymes, colloidal silver leavesthese tissue-cell enzymes intact, as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus colloidal silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.

Product Quality

Many brands of colloidal silver are inferior. The highest grade is produced by the electro-colloidal /non-chemical method where the silver particles and water have been colloided, i.e., dispersed within and bound to each other by an electric current. The super-fine silver particles are suspended indefinitelyin demineralized water. The ideal color of colloidal silver is a golden yellow. Darker colors indicatelarger silver particles that tend to collect at the bottom of the container and are not true colloids. If aproduct contains a stabilizer or lists trace elements other than silver, or if it needs to be shaken, it is inferior. If a product requires refrigeration, some other ingredient is present that could spoil. The container and dropper must be glass, as plastic cannot preserve the silver in liquid suspension for anylength of time. Some brands with high concentrations of silver may actually be completely safe.

Ingesting Colloidal Silver

Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream, then transportedquickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may resultin faster absorption. In three to four

Next Generation Colloidal Silver

days the silver may accumulate in the tissues sufficiently forbenefits to begin. Colloidal silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel after severalweeks. If routinely exposed to dangerous pathogenic germs, some recommend a regular daily intake asa protection. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of colloidal silver may hasten healing, reducingthe possibility of scar tissue and infection. It is believed by many in the natural healing arts that thelives of millions of people who are susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this preventative health measure.

Chronic or Serious Conditions

1 teaspoon of 5 ppm. colloidal silver equals about 25 micrograms (mcg.) of silver. 1 – 4 teaspoons perday (25 – 100 mcg.) is generally considered to be a “nutritional amount” and is reported to be safe touse for extended periods of time. Amounts higher than this are generally considered “therapeutic amounts” and should only be used periodically.

In cases of illness, natural health practitioners have often recommended taking double or triple the”nutritional amount” for 30 to 45 days, then dropping down to a smaller maintenance dose. Amountsfrom 1 – 32 ounces per day have reportedly been used in acute conditions.

If your body is extremely ill or toxic, do not be in a hurry to clear up everything at once. If pathogens are killed off too quickly, the body’s five eliminatory channels (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs and bowel) may be temporarily overloaded, causing flu-like conditions, headache, extreme fatigue, dizziness,nausea or aching muscles. Ease off on the colloidal silver to a smaller amount and increase your distilled water intake. Regular bowel movements are a must in order to relieve the discomforts of detoxification. Resolve to reduce sugar and saturated fats from the diet, and exercise more. Given theopportunity, the body’s natural ability to heal may amaze you.

Topical Uses

Some have used colloidal silver in a nasal spray mister – to reach the sinuses and nasal passages. Spraybottles have been used for topical use on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, skin, sore throat, eyes, burns,etc. Colloidal silver is painless on cuts, abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils for a stuffy nose, andeven in a baby’s eyes because, unlike some antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells. It’s excellent as an underarm deodorant, since most underarm odor is caused by bacteria breaking down substances released by the sweat glands!

Some Common Uses of Colloidal Silver

Natural health practitioners have for years recommended taking one tablespoon daily, for four days, to establish a level, then one teaspoon daily for maintenance (proportional to body weight for children).After six weeks, a pause of several weeks has also been recommended by some natural healing artsdoctors. Also, colloidal silver can be applied directly to cuts, scrapes, and open sores, or on a bandage for warts. It can be applied on eczema, itches, acne or bug bites. To purify water, add one tablespoonper gallon, shake well and wait six minutes. Mixed this way, it’s tasteless. It is not an allopathic poison.

Veterinary and Garden Use

Colloidal silver has worked just as well on pets of all kinds. Used in proportion to body weight, itshould bring the same results. In the garden, field or greenhouse, add enough to the water or soil – andthe plants will do the rest.

Tolerance To Disease Organisms

We have all heard of the “super-germs” that are resistant to most modern antibiotics. Some believe that single-celled germs cannot mutate into silver-resistant forms, as happens with conventional antibiotics. Therefore no tolerance to colloidal silver would develop through mutation. Also, colloidal silver has not been demonstrated to interact or interfere with other medicines being taken. Inside the body, silver apparently does not form toxic compounds or react with anything other than a germ’s oxygen-metabolizing enzyme. Colloidal silver may truly be a safe, natural remedy for many of mankind’s ills.

Additionally, there has never been a drug interaction reported between colloidal silver and any other medication. It’s difficult to overdose – unless large amounts are ingested. Colloidal silver has been reported by users to be both a remedy and a prevention for numerous infections, colds, flus, and fermentations due to various bacteria, viruses or fungi, even the non-apparent low-grade, general body infections many people have. Living organisms are in the colloidal chemical state, not the crystalline state. Substances already in that form may be more readily assimilated by the body. Colloidal silver is the most useable form of a reputedly effective germ fighter.

A colloidal suspension is ultra-fine particles of one substance, suspended by an electric charge in another substance. Homogenized milk and aerosol sprays are colloidal suspensions. Colloidal silver is pure, metallic silver (not a chemical compound) of particles 15 atoms or fewer, each with a positive electric charge, and attached to a molecule of simple protein. This new particle floats in pure water. The electric charge is stronger than gravity so the silver particles don’t sink.

Colloidal Silver in Advance of Illness?

When the possibility of germ exposure is higher, colloidal silver can be taken orally each day or applied topically when there is a skin problem. It’s like having a second defense system. The silver acts only as a catalyst and is stabilized. It is non-toxic, except to one-cell plants and animals, and is non-addicting. It also apparently kills parasites because they have a one cell egg stage in their reproductive cycle.

Older folks reportedly feel younger because their body energies are used for other uses than constantlyfighting disease. Digestion has also been reportedly better. Medical research has shown that silverpromotes more rapid healing, with less scar tissue, even in the case of severe burns. Successes havebeen reported in cases that previously have been given up by established doctors. Colloidal silver istasteless and won’t sting even a baby’s eyes, and won’t upset your stomach.

This post is from Roger Altman, a prominent scientist who seeks the truth about colloidal silver.


This report is for informational purposes only.  It is not meant to be a personal guide for colloidal silver dosing.  The results are based on a single individual’s metabolism and excretion rate, which vary widely from person to person.


A fixed amount of colloidal silver was ingested each day for several months before a preliminary 24-hour silver balance was attempted by measuring the amount of silver found in feces, urine, nails, hair and perspiration.  After estimating the amount of silver produced in 24 hours from each of these sources, it was concluded that urine and feces provide a good first approximation of the total amount of silver excreted by the body. This study was followed by a second more extensive effort which was designed to monitor the residual quantity of silver eliminated over time by estimating the weight of silver in feces and urine from weekly (and later, tri-weekly) 23 hr. samples.  During this period, a single test was made in an attempt to demonstrate the influence of water intake on the quantity of silver excreted in urine.


Despite the recent popularity of using colloidal silver (CS) for water purification and to treat infection, there exists no reliable data with respect to silver elimination rate from the body including its distribution in feces and urine.  Thus, I decided to measure my own colloidal silver intake and elimination rate as well as to investigate silver accumulation in specific areas of the body, such as hair, fingernails and perspiration.  I also made a single measurement to survey the effect “excess” water intake has on the amount of silver eliminated in urine.  This report represents the first attempt to answer these questions. Hopefully, these initial results may serve as a first step in establishing safe and effective dosages for using CS therapeutically, or even prophylactically.

One of the historic stumbling blocks that has made it difficult to accurately estimate silver elimination and distribution in the body has been due to the haphazard substitution of silver salts for CS, or the poor quality of CS produced for experimentation.  For decades, grinding and precipitation were the only methods available.  While some of these crude techniques did produce some CS, the product itself, nor its concentration, could be relied upon to be consistent from batch to batch, or to contain enough small particles to have much biological activity (while minimizing the dangers of heavy metal poisoning).  Recently, the electrolytic method has gained popularity, but even this method can produce a broad range of results due to wide variations of colloid particle size and concentration.

For a number of years, the most common electrolytic method has relied on wiring batteries in series so that two (99.9% pure) silver electrodes could generate a potential of about 27-36 volts between them.  To help promote the reaction, some vendors have recommended adding a small amount of salt to the distilled water electrolyte, while others believe that bonding the CS to a soluble protein would help stabilize the colloid, and thus allow it to better maintain its potency.  Whatever the proposed “fix”, these low voltage electrolytic generators yield CS that is unsuitable for research purposes because its potency is inconsistent from batch to batch, in addition to the fact that the CS is generally of poor quality based on impractically low silver concentrations, and/or an unacceptably large particle size.  All of these variables contribute to forming a product, which has an unpredictable, and generally low biological activity.  However, these problems can be overcome to a great extent by using a power supply with a 180 volt DC output and 120 AC input.


The present study is based on using a 180-volt DC current between a stainless steel container (cathode) and a silver strip (anode) suspended in about a half gallon of distilled water (less than 2 ppm total dissolved solids).  The water distiller, as well as the electrolytic set-up and power supply, were commercial units purchased through the Internet.  A milliammeter was added to the circuit to measure current to both monitor and help achieve process reproducibility.

Preliminary Study

A 24-hour silver balance was recorded by noting the total amount of CS ingested during this period and then analyzing urine and feces in order to measure the amount of silver excreted via these two modes (Kimball Labs, Draper, Utah).  In addition, the amount of silver contained in perspiration, hair and nails was also determined.  The results (given in mg) are summarized below.


Silver In Silver Out

  Ingested: 2.34 urine: 3.14
    feces: 0.83
    hair: 0.09
    perspiration: 0.04
    nails: 0.002
Total 2.34   3.97

The purposes of a mass balance, the amount of silver in hair, perspiration, and nail samples cannot easily be transformed into a corresponding 24-hour equivalent, but judging from the low level of total silver present from these sources, I think it is reasonable to discount these avenues for significant silver elimination.  Taking into account silver loss through feces and urine alone, this preliminary study reveals that:

1)        Silver is excreted easily from the body, primarily in the urine.

2)        More silver leaving the body than entering during a 24-hour test period probably can be accounted for by the variability of the total amount of urine and feces produced on a day to day basis, i.e., body tissue acts as a “flywheel” retaining and excreting more or less silver depending on the daily volume of bodily waste generated.

3)        Since the same daily amount of silver had been taken for several months prior to this 24 hour test, it is reasonable to conclude that the total amount of silver residing in body tissue is many times that of the daily amount eliminated (this conclusion is supported by additional evidence given later).  Therefore, it seems quite possible that CS taken prophylactically offers better protection than CS taken only at the onset of illness.

Primary Study Procedure

The procedure used to monitor the silver elimination rate had these steps:

1)         CS was consumed daily for several months and ranged from ingesting less than 1 mg (during the first month) up to 2.34 mg per day (for most of the study).

2)         After approximately 5 ½months of daily CS ingestion, no further CS was consumed, and the total CS ingested was estimated by analyzing the electrolytically generated CS for silver and noting the daily volume consumed.

3)         The first fecal and urine sample was collected 5 days after CS ingestion ceased.  After 24-hour period up to and including the fifth week.  Beyond that point, 24-hour sampling occurred once every three weeks.  The weight of feces and the volume of urine were noted for each 24-hour collection period. Then about 50 grams of feces and 50 ml of urine were sampled from the total amount collected and sent to the lab (Kimbal Labs, Draper, Utah) for silver analysis.  Results were reported in ppm for the urine samples and in mg of silver per measured fecal weight (containing the original amount of moisture). Total silver in feces was then calculated from the ratio of total collected weight divided by the weight reported by the lab.  Total milligrams of silver in urine were obtained by multiplying ppm reported by the lab by the total urine volume taken during the corresponding 24-hour period.

4)         Because  of  the  day-to-day  variation  in  the  volume  of  urine  and  feces, milligrams of  silver in a given sample were normalized to a daily average urine volume and fecal weight using the equations and values shown below:

Adjustment of 24-Hour Urine and Fecal Samples

Feces: [standardized mg silver] =   CF x   mg  silver in individual fecal sample Where CF   =  avg wt for fecal samples (503 grams)/wt of an individual fecal sample Urine: [standardized mg silver]  =  CU x  mg silver in individual urine sample Where CU  =  avg vol for urine samples (1648 ml)/vol of an individual urine sample The raw as well as the adjusted data are summarized in Table I.

Estimating the Rate of Silver Elimination

As the body is depleted in silver, the rate of its elimination slows down.  A graph

illustrating this relationship would show milligrams of silver excreted approaching zero asymptotically as time approaches infinity.  Since I have a very limited number of data points, this graphical relationship would require fitting a curvilinear relationship with time (x) axis, which would increase uncertainty.  Accuracy can be improved by plotting the reciprocal of total milligrams of silver eliminated per day because this function creates an approximately linear relationship for most of the data.

Even though there is little doubt that some residual silver remained in my body after 96 days (when the last sample was taken), I have chosen not to extrapolate the reciprocal of “mg silver eliminated per day” to “infinite” time because doing so would only add another element of uncertainty.  Therefore, the percent silver elimination discussed below should be viewed as a maximum value, which can be refined when more data becomes available.


Figure 1 shows a plot of silver elimination rates given in the last column of Table I.  Note these values, which are the reciprocal of the normalized data, appear linear over an appreciable time period (between 19 and 96 days).  However, the data point for the 19th day required a very large correction in urine volume to standardize it to the nominal (1648 ml) value.  Therefore, it may be more prudent to assume linearity only between day 33 and day 96.  In addition, the data including the 12th and 33rd day appear to exhibit a constant silver elimination rate, whereas the data including the 5th and the 12th day appear to be linearly related to time.  No doubt about the scarcity of precise data in the 0-

33 day timeframe create uncertainty with regard to the exact relationship between silver elimination rates and time during the first few weeks of sampling.  Nevertheless, I believe there is some justification to characterize these data as points lying on three distinct curves.  Supporting this hypothesis is the changing distribution of silver between urine and feces as a function of the silver concentration in body tissue.  This variable silver distribution between feces and urine is constant with the influence of two mechanisms that control how silver is excreted from the body.  The next section discusses this proposal in more detail.

To convert silver elimination from “days required to eliminate an mg of “percent silver eliminated” as a function of time, a numerical integration was performed after the analytical expressions for the three curves shown in Figure 1 were obtained (see Appendix I for details).  The results of this calculation are given in Table II and are plotted in Figure 2.

Silver Elimination Mechanism and Other Observations

Table I also reveals that when enough CS has been ingested to achieve steady state, the CS “excess” appears, for the most part, to go directly to urine.  (Note that on Day 5 – just 5 days after halting CS ingestion – 9 mg of silver were deposited in urine and only 0.7 mg was found in feces).  This primary mechanism for silver elimination is represented by curve “A” in Figure 2.  Then a transitional phase occurs when, in addition to the

influence of the first mechanism, a second mechanism is evident as the metabolic elimination of silver contained in body tissue begins to play a more important role.  This transitional period is labeled curve “B”.  Finally the second mechanism predominates (marked as “C” in the same figure) as clearly shown by a shift in the data points in Figure 2 beyond day 33, and supported by noting the large change in silver distribution between urine and feces on the 96th day compared to that of the 5th day. This shift is quite significant and strongly suggests two separate silver elimination mechanisms at work.

In addition, the data collected on the 33rd day (Table I) demonstrates that when several “extra” liters of water are consumed per day, urinary silver elimination appears to increase proportionately.  However, this acceleration in silver loss will probably only work when there is significant silver present in the bloodstream with respect to that residing in body tissue.


Ingestion of properly prepared CS does not result in silver accumulating in the body.

There is no evidence that silver deposits significantly in hair or fingernails and, in fact, the data support the conclusion that after taking more than 2 mg of CS per day for several months, silver seems to be purged from the body (mostly through urine) at about the same rate at which it is consumed.  Furthermore, upon terminating CS intake, it appears that as much as half the silver residing in body tissue will be purged (through urine and feces, but more and more through feces as time goes on) in less than a month.  Even this relatively short residence time could be reduced substantially if several liters of water were consumed daily.


I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Bill Schenker, M.D. for his thoughtful suggestions and support.  Without his selfless assistance, this study would not have been undertaken.  I would also like to thank my wife, Rosa Altman, MS Chemistry for suggesting this study, preparing the figures and tables as well as reviewing this manuscript, Jennifer Altman BA, medical student at Duke University, for her editorial suggestions and Erin Altman for typing much of this manuscript.

Quotes From Scientific Studies Show Why You Need Colloidal Silver For Great Health

Why is there so much MIS-information about colloidal silver?  Perhaps it is because it works so well that “Pharma” does not want you to discover the truth because they can not compete with the price, safety nor strength of colloidal silver.

Professional Quotes Regarding Colloidal Silver
“… in this eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine… perhaps, it soon will be recognized as: OUR MIGHTIEST GERM FIGHTER. For example, even the most powerful pharmaceutical antibiotics are effective against only a small number of microorganisms, and then only until drug-resistant strains develop. Yet, research at Washington University School of Medicine … has shown that silver is bactericidal to nearly 650 different disease-causing organisms, and that silver–resistant bacteria strains do not develop.” —Science Digest

“It killed not only the HIV virus, but every virus that was tested in the lab.” —U.C.L.A. Medical Center

“When silver was present, the cancer cell de-differentiated and the body was restored.” Dr. Gary Smith

“…major enhancement of both the rate and competency of the healing process…the germ-killing of silver has been known for some time…the Soviets use silver ions to sterilize recycled water aboard their space stations… It kills even antibiotic strains, and also works on fungus infections… It stimulates bone-forming cells, cures the most common stubborn infections of all kinds of bacteria, and stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues.” Robert O. Becker, M.D. –author of The Body Electric

“… studies showed the spectrum of organisms susceptible to electrically generated silver ions was wide and …. compared favorably with…other antibiotics” — J.A. Spadaro, Ph.D.

“I know of no microbe that is not killed in laboratory experiments in six minutes.”   Dr. Henry Crooks

“…the colloidal metals… are remarkable for their beneficial action in infective states.”— Dr. Hirschberg, John Hopkins Hospital

“Silver is one of the most universal antibiotic substances. When administered in the colloidal form, it is for all practical purposes non-toxic. Silver has been proven to be effective against hundreds of infectious conditions. It has tremendous anti-microbial power; the history of safe and successful colloidal silver use is extensive, and the number of current health professionals and individuals that successfully utilize colloidal silver to reduce the length and severity of infectious disorders is growing exponentially.”  Zane Baranowski, CN

“To primitive life forms…silver is as toxic as the most powerful chemical disinfectants and this, coupled with its relative harmlessness to animate life (i.e. mammals), gives it great potential as a disinfectant.”  N.R. Thompson – Runcorn Health Laboratory in England

“With the many research reports and personal testimonials of it being a full spectrum natural antibiotic that destroys virtually all known and developing/mutating pleomorphic pathogens would be a lot of excitement regarding colloidal silver, especially from within the medical community…The harsh reality regarding the FDA, AMA, Pharmaceutical, and scientific community is that there appears to be a lack of enthusiasm. Reluctance to help validate the effectiveness of colloidal silver seems all too common. Although this is changing, the reason for the possible resistance may be rooted primarily in economics. For example, colloidal silver is regarded by the FDA as a pre-1938 drug. Moreover, the FDA does not have jurisdiction regarding a pure mineral element. There has been no incentive for the aforementioned bodies to go through the expensive process of controlled studies to provide proof regarding uses and effectiveness, such as the UCLA and others have done.” E. Vincent Goetsch in his book, “Colloidal Silver Maker & Researcher’s Manual”

“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.”  The Association for Advanced Colloid Research

“Silver Colloids greatly assist in eliminating all known pathogens and guard against opportunistic infections. This ‘second immune system’ is synergistic…” Dr. Robert C. Beck, DSc., wrote in “Explore!”

“Colloidal silver is very effective in treating periodontal disease (gum disease). My patients enjoy the clean fresh breath as colloidal silver immediately cleanses the mouth and destroys odor-causing bacteria. I would recommend that colloidal silver solutions be used after each dental procedure or surgery to eliminate infection and speed healing.”  S.R. Cobble, D.D.S.

Obstetrics and Gynecology

“The medicine department of obstetrics and gynecology at UCLA conducted tests in 1988 regarding the use of silver solutions as disinfectants. Anti-microbial and anti-bacterial effects were demonstrated in 10/5 concentrations per milliliter of the following:  neisseria gonorrhea, gardurella vaginalisis, streptococcus pyogenes, staphylococcus aureus, candida albicans, candida eolobata, m. furfur, salmonella typhi.” Larry C. Ford, M.D., UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, November, 1, 1988.

AIDS Study

“Eight people recover from the AIDS virus in a scientifically documented study. An additional seven AIDS patients recover as verified by anecdotal reports”.  Dr. M. Paul Farber, M.P. N.D., Ph.D., D.C. Author of the “Micro Silver Bullet TM” 4th Edition, November 1996 ISBN 1-87742-00 X Pages XIII & XVI.

Lyme Disease

“Borrelia burgdorferi and hermsti, organisms associated with causing the symptoms of Lyme Disease, were tested at the Department of Health and Human Services, Rocky Mountain Laboratories and Fox Chase Cancer Center, respectively,in 1995; in the Rocky Mountain Labs study, it was demonstrated that no live spirochetes of either borrellia burgdorferi [B310 orhermsti (HS-1)] survived after 24 hours of exposure to colloidal silver in concentrations of 15 ppm and 150 ppm.” Schuan, Tom, Ph.D., Burgdorfer, Willy Ph.D. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, Rocky Mountain Laboratories, January, 13, 1995.

Cancer Research

Research by Dr. Robert O. Becker, and others indicated that laboratory tests conducted reverted cancer cells back to normal (not kill them but return them to normal). Other observations made such as a correlation between silver deficiency and illness or proper immune system functioning, burns, soft tissue and bone repair acceleration, and the formation of cells that appear to be able to repair virtually any part of the body. Reduction of inflammation and the antibacterial, germicidal, astringent, antibiotic attributes so far observed are yet to be fully understood. The Body Electric, Dr. Robert O. Becker ISBN 0688069711 Quill, New York or William Morrow & Company

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Poison Control Center reports no toxicity listing for Colloidal Silver; it is therefore considered harmless in any concentration. However, all of the silver salts are identified as toxic, although the only adverse effect noted is Argyria. Therefore the concern is with silver salts and compounds, not colloidal silver.

C.E. A. MacLeod reports colloidal silver being used with marked success in the following cases:  “Septic and follicular tonsillitis, Vincent’s angina, phlyctenular conjunctivitis, gonorrheal conjunctivitis, spring catarrh, impetigo (contagious acne of face and body), septic ulcer of legs, ringworm, soft sores, suppurative appendicitis after operation (the wounds cleaned rapidly), pustular eczema of scalp and pubes, chronic eczema of meatus of ear with recurrent boils, chronic suppuration in otitis media, and bromidrosis of feet. By injection:  gonnorrhoea and chronic cystitis (local), boils, epididymitis.” Lancet, Feb. 3, 1912 p. 83.

“The germicidal action of certain metals in the colloidal state having been demonstrated, it only remained to apply them to the human subject, and this has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results. For internal administration, either orally or hypodermically, they have the advantage of being rapidly fatal to the parasites both bacterial and otherwise without any toxic action on the host. Colloidal silver solution is quite stable even in the presence of salts and the normal constituents of the blood. Its destructive action on toxins is very marked, so that it will protect rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanic (from tetanus) or diphtheric toxin.” Searle, A. B. The Use of Colloids Health and Disease (Quoting from the British Medical Journal, May 12, 1917 p.83), E.P. Dutton & Company, New York, 1919, p.75

John Meredith, an experienced medical writer, has written a good article entitled: “The Rebellion of Germs Against Antibiotics”. Mr. Meredith points out the dangers of the modern world for the easy spread of infections that antibiotics can do nothing about. He explains why drug companies hate natural remedies. They do not make available grant money to study what they feel that they cannot make money on. Mr. Meredith makes reference to a number of cases that colloidal silver has helped including “Gulf War Syndrome” and a number of common medical conditions. He makes reference to a Dr. Tipton who feels that it should be a daily mineral supplement. The article makes a point on why every household should keep colloidal silver on their shelves. It is great to protect children and the elderly. A reference is make about protection from food poisoning which is becoming more and more a serious public health issue.

Response to Consumer Reports “Dirty Dozen” on Colloidal Silver

Consumer Reports; Where are the Bodies and Where are the “Blue People”?

This month’s article from Consumer Reports displays an article on what they call the ‘Dirty Dozen’ 12 nutritional supplements including Colloidal Silver. In the article, CR says colloidal silver “has a possible risk of: Bluish skin, mucous membrane discoloration, neurological problems, kidney damage”. Nowhere do they offer any proof. None.

If colloidal silver is a health hazard, where are the bodies? Where are the blue people?  Think about it; for simplicity, let’s say that there a 300 million people in the USA. Arguably, there are 10 million people who take Colloidal Silver daily.  In your entire lifetime, how many people have you met who are blue?  Probably none.

How many people have died reasonably using Colloidal Silver?  None.  Here is proof;

Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, January 19, 2010

(OMNS, January 19, 2010) “There was not even one death caused by a dietary supplement in 2008, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System.”

“The new 174-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published in the journal Clinical Toxicology, shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin.”

“Additionally, there were no deaths whatsoever from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John’s wort, valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, melatonin, or any homeopathic remedies.”

“Furthermore, there were zero deaths in 2008 from any dietary mineral supplement. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multi-mineral supplements”

No man, woman or child died from nutritional supplements. Period.

“61 poison centers provide coast-to-coast data for the U.S. National Poison Data System, which is then reviewed by 29 medical and clinical toxicologists. NPDS, the authors write, is “one of the few real-time national surveillance systems in existence, providing a model public health surveillance system for all types of exposures, public health event identification, resilience response and situational awareness tracking.”

So let’s see if the facts bear out.  Pharmaceutical Drugs caused 106,000 DEATHS in 2008, while there were ZERO deaths from Nutritional Supplements. When the light shines on facts, the truth comes out. If pharmaceutical drugs caused 106,000 deaths and nutritional supplements caused no death, which do you think needs to be exposed to the public? Drugs or nutritional supplements?

What is the real agenda of Consumer Reports?  It is hard to say, but a prestigious publication like CR is seriously in danger of losing their credibility.  Any aware consumer will want to know the facts and not depend upon a publication that merely makes accusations.

This article is poorly researched, unsupported and could possibly be the result of Big Pharma trying to sway consumers through a well-respected publication away from safe and effective dietary supplements towards toxic and deadly pharmaceutical drugs. Consumer Reports has certainly lost me as someone who believes what they say. Unbiased? You decide!

These Pathogens Were Utterly Destroyed by NutraSilver in FDA-certified Lab Tests

You can see all of these FDA-certified in-vitro lab tests for yourself.

Important Nano-Silver Background You Need to Know

“There is no known disease-causing organism that can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of simple metallic silver,” according to Larry C. Ford, M.D., at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA School of Medicine, 1988.

“Colloidal silver appears to be safe for children and pregnant and nursing women. It is tasteless, odorless, contains no free radicals, is harmless to human enzymes and has no adverse reactions with medications.”

“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses. More importantly—unlike conventional antibiotics—infectious agents, cannot build a resistance to silver.”

“Taken internally, it may improve digestion, help prevent colds, flu and all organism-caused diseases. It can be used as a douche, atomized, nebulized or inhaled. Applied externally, it has been shown to help with things such as skin abrasions and burns (including sun burn). It can also be dropped into the eyes and ears to help the body overcome infection.”   Kurt Grange, Ph.D., N.D., is a nutritional bio-physiologist and author.

The Environmental Protection Agency Reveals Their Conclusions on Colloidal Silver:

Safety & Research

“Argyria has been described in syphilitic patients in poor health who were therapeutically dosed with a total of about 1 g of silver in the form of silver arsphenamine together with other toxic metals. There have been no reports of argyria or other toxic effects resulting from the exposure of healthy persons to silver.”

“Although the deposition of silver is permanent, it is not associated with any adverse health effects. No pathological changes or inflammatory reactions have been shown to result from silver deposition. Silver compounds have been employed for medical uses for centuries. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, silver amphetamine was used in the treatment of syphilis; more recently it has been used as an astringent in topical preparations. While argyria occurred more commonly before the development of antibiotics, it is now a rare occurrence.”

“Taking one ounce of colloidal silver daily, according to EPA guidelines, is well below the critical daily intake for the development of argyria.”

Silver Washes Out Of The System Quickly

According to the EPA IRIS Report on silver (Integrated Risk Information Systems, 5th page, 1st paragraph) it states that a number of tests were completed to test the absorption and retention of ingested silver in a number of animals, including primates (we are primates). In its conclusion, the test work indicated that between 90-99% of ingested silver was excreted on the second day after ingestion, and greater than 99% was excreted in less than a week. So, in other words, almost all of the ingested silver was out of the body in only two days, and most of the rest was out of the body in a week. They found that silver does not build up in the system.

Safety & Research

“Silver occurs naturally mainly in the form of its very insoluble and immobile oxides, sulfides, and some salts. It has occasionally been found in ground, surface, and drinking-water at concentrations above 5 µg/liter. Levels in drinking-water treated with silver for disinfection (see Protection and improvement of water quality) may be above 50 µg/liter. Recent estimates of daily intake are about 7 µg per person.”

“Only a small percentage of silver is absorbed. Retention rates in humans and laboratory animals range between 0 and 10%.”

“The only obvious sign of silver overload is argyria, a condition in which skin and hair are heavily discolored by silver in the tissues. An oral NOAEL for argyria in humans for a total lifetime intake of 10 grams of silver was estimated on the basis of human case reports and long-term animal experiments.”


There is Far Too Much MIS-information About Colloidal Silver

  • Silver is NOT a heavy metal such as lead!

  • Silver is a NOBEL METAL LIKE GOLD.

  • There is no such thing as “Silver Poisoning”.

  • Humans have been using silver for over 3,000 years.

  • Try to find even one death from silver.

Levels Of Silver Usage Historically Deemed Safe

Many different silver products have been and are still being used throughout the medical industry. Up until the advent of chemical antibiotics, as we now know them, which came about in the 1940s, some very strong silver products were being used as antibiotics. Of the millions of people who used these concentrated silver products, there were no reported deaths and only 239 reported cases of generalized argyria. ( EPA Report ECAO- CIN-026, January 1991, page VI-3).

The Argyria Myth: Is It Possible To Get Argyria Using NutraSilver?

It would appear not. According to the US EPA, you must take silver nitrates or silver salts in very large quantities (over 10 grams) to get argyria. NutraSilver contains only nano-sized real silver particles and double-distilled CLUSTERED WATER and nothing else. Additionally, you must take silver in very large sizes (they get trapped under the skin) and NutraSilver silver particles are in the very low nano-range size. Commercially manufactured modern colloidal silver products all use very tiny silver particles.
