Colloidal Silver: Separating Fact From Myth

How Colloidal Silver Can Transform Your Off-Grid Life

Image source: AwakeAndLiving.com

If you are interested in alternative therapies, it is likely that you have come across products containing silver.

Not only is pure colloidal silver an effective agent against powerful superbugs, it has also been proven effective against the following:

  •       Acne
  •       AIDS
  •       Allergies
  •       Boils
  •       Burns
  •       Indigestion
  •       Ringworn
  •       Yeast infections
  •       Wards
  •       Athlete’s foot

While the use of silver to treat serious pathogens is nothing new, it is important to know what you are purchasing before you begin.

When it comes to such products, there has been some confusion because there are actually three types of silver products that you can purchase. The confusion happens because all of these are sold as actual colloidal silver, when only one truly is.

Become more self-sufficient and create a more authentic life for yourself and your family!

Like the lax food labeling regulations we experience today, this labeling chaos has led to problems. When purchasing colloidal silver, it is paramount that you get only true colloidal silver.

Here is a brief overview of the different type of silver products. It is recommended that you seek the assistance of a health professional when choosing the best colloidal silver for you.

Ionic silver solutions

Most commercial “colloidal” silver products are actually ionic silver solutions. These are the least inexpensive to manufacture. Ionic solutions are normally clear in color or a slight bit yellow. Although the manufacturers of these products state that “clear” is best, this is not the case.

You can test if your product is a solution by adding some table salt to it; if the solution is ionic, the chloride ions will join with the silver ions and the solution will become white and cloudy.

Ionic silver contains a lower percentage of silver particles and is not nearly as beneficial as true colloidal silver. Although ionic silver has potent anti-microbial potential, this is hampered by the presence of chloride — such as that which is in your body.

Ionic silver solutions are generally thought to be safe as long as you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

What are silver proteins?

Silver products that contain silver proteins can be highly dangerous and should be avoided. To keep the silver particles suspended, these products use a protein binder. A good giveaway that it is a silver protein product is if the manufacturer makes the claim that it has a very high amount of colloidal silver in it — anywhere from 20 to 30,000 ppm. The product will also foam when shaken and will be a golden yellow to even dark brown/black in color. The silver in these products is totally useless because the body can’t access it.

Warning: The concentration of silver is very high in these products and can cause a condition (Argyria) that causes the skin to turn blue/gray in color.

What is true colloidal silver?

Because they are expensive to produce, you will see very few completely pure or true colloidal silver products. Pure colloidal silver contains 50 to 80 percent silver particles with the rest being silver ions.

The particles in true colloidal silver keep the light from passing through, and this makes the color appear to be darker. It will not be clear. There are no known dangers from consuming true colloidal silver.

What scientific research says

What many have known for a long time about true colloidal silver — that it is a powerful natural antibiotic — science is now validating. Research shows that true colloidal silver can even take care of antibiotic-resistant microbes including MRSA, Human Coronavirus (SARS) and Avian Influenza.

As far back as the early 1900s, Alfred Searle, who founded Searle Pharmaceutical Company, learned that liquid colloidal silver could kill even the most deadly of pathogens. He found great success in giving colloidal silver to humans because it kills microbes without harming the host. In addition, he learned that it protected rabbits completely when they were given 10 times the lethal dose of tetanus.

In the mid-1970s, Dr. Robert O. Becker at Syracuse Medical University conducted some significant research into colloidal silver, confirming that silver kills bacteria fast. All the organisms that he tested were sensitive to the electrically generated silver ion; this included some that were resistant to all antibiotics. In light of the increase in antibiotic-resistant bugs today, this is very good news.

Recent research

More recent research also validates the strength of colloidal silver.

A study published in the journal Current Science in 2006 discovered that when antibiotic drugs that had become ineffective in treating drug-resistant pathogens were combined with a pure silver solution, they regained their potency.

A 2007 study published in the Journal of Colloids Surface B Biointerfaces found that even using colloidal silver alone knocked out MRSA as well as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, another deadly superbug.

How you can use colloidal silver at home

Here are a few ways you can use colloidal silver at home:

  •       Spray on burns to prevent infection and to speed healing without scarring.
  •       Take a small amount daily to boost your immune system
  •       Put a few drops in ears to prevent infection
  •       Apply topically to ease symptoms of yeast infection
  •       Speed healing of herpes, warts or ringworm by dabbing a little on the affected area
  •       Speak to your veterinarian about how it can also help your pets

Note:It is always best to speak with a professional heath care practitioner before using colloidal silver to be sure that you are using the real thing. For more information on using products containing silver safely visit the Silver Safety Council website.

  1. What about devices that claim you can make your own colloidal solutions? Do they work or just a waste of money?

    • Well, I’m certainly not a scientist, but I hve been making and using silver at home for my family and me for about 7years. We have NEVER needed prescription antibiotics since then. We hve five children.

    • Marty

      I make and use colloidal silver with a C.S. generator. It will only make CS in 5, 10. or 15 PPM. I use only 15 PPM, and it has been a miracle for my family. We have been using the CS for more than 5 years and during that time neither my wife or myself have gotten a cold. When we come home from being in public, we spray silver into our nose breathing in at the same time. There are so many things we have used it on including our animals. One of our horses cut herself to the bone below the hock. Normally this would have been vet call, sutures, a drain and antibiotics. We cleaned out the wound and began treating it with CS and Bluekote twice a day. The wound began healing from the inside and in about a month, was completely healed. Our vet was astonished. I’ve read some articles about CS being a waste, Don’t believe it. We are living proof this stuff is a miracle.

    • A New Way of Making Silver Water or Upgraded Colloidal Silver.

      Historically, “Colloidal Silver” WATER is made as follows: The OLD WAY

      1. Pure or distilled water is used
      2. 2 pure silver wires are placed into the water
      3. One wire is connected to a +pos DC energy source and the other wire is connected to the -neg DC energy source.
      4. Patience is required as this process can take quite a while, hours even.
      5. Much debate can then be had by the variance and source of electricity, parts per million, ionic content and a host of variables pitting one apparatus against another as to the “best” kind or colour of Colloid.

      This “colloidal silver” can only be consumed in minute quantities as large doses can turn the skin blue and may be toxic at higher doses.

      SOME INTERESTING BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

      When a wire from the positive to the negative of a power source is connected, the wire will heat up. If enough current is available, the system will burn out, melt or degrade.

      However, when you make a TESLA inspired wire coil system, a unique ‘magnetic field’ is created and amazing things happen. This field, if in a vacuum will generate light. Water will also boil. Without the Tesla LIKE coil neither happens. This was Tesla’s legacy to the world.

      The Tesla coil allows for forms of electrical energy to do work. The Tesla coil is truly Field Science.

      Tesla said everything is Frequency, Energy and Vibration. TESLA purposely omitted referring to particles, colloids, ions, electrons or even atoms in his work. So opposed was he to this line of thought that he publicly debated with Einstein about the THEORY of Matter and other scientific theories and equations of the time.

      This TESLA inspired coil is Field Science. Therefore from a purely ‘energy’ point of view we may ponder on how to make an Energy Field of Silver in water that prevents the wire degrading in the “colloidal silver” process.

      As seen in magnetic fields, two straight wires interacting with one another cannot create a field effect. No magnetic field is created as the current is restricted to interacting with each other by a 90 degree spike between the two wires as its form of interaction. Electrolysis is not field science. NB. This is the introduction of Water Based Field Science as expanded upon in joecellwaterscience dot com

      Battery sourced DC and Emoto’s water crystals. Low voltage batteries as used in small gadgets in the range of 1.5 to 9 volts are made from a variety of materials. Lithium, Nickel, Cadmium, Mercury and others. We all know of the biological toxicity of these heavy metals. Just as one can meditate on a glass of water and Emoto’s camera can photograph the crystalline structure change. So to does water energised with these heavy metal batteries affect the crystalline structure of water affecting the life force energy qualities of the water. The use of such a source of DC energy is to be avoided at all costs. The weak DC produced by a single cell 1.5V Lead acid battery is the exception but even Edgar Cayce said to cut the Neg wire and place a gold insert to condition the energy for biological use. This does however, make the apparatus of( colloidal) silver water production rather bulky as one needs several such “wet cell” batteries.

      Interestingly, by using electricity to power up two plates or two wires, you get electrolysis. Electrolysis is a degrading process as it is not renewable nor is it progressive.

      The NEW WAY.

      1. Take 4 silver wires position them thus: Connect the +pos and -neg in such a way to take advantage of the energy interaction to create a Magnetic Field around the wires, taking advantage of the 90 degree interaction. This can be likened to the Coil in an electric jug that creates an energy field to disperse the energy into the water, bringing it to a boil rather than burning the element out.
      2. Select a voltage and amperage that is in resonance or harmony with the wire and its end use. Tesla chose 50 hertz as it was a resonance factor that is that of the Earth’s frequency. A DC battery is not suitable as it has no harmony with the earth. Utilising an AC to DC power supply which resonates with silver and the earth then there will occur a ripple of energy which is imparted to the water. A memory then retrained by the water as it interacts with the silver in the water. Literally tuning the water into silver.

      3. All DC isn’t created equal. Energy created by spinning magnets retains a memory of the magnetic energy source. This magnetically created DC is similar to Life Force Energy. (magnetic healing)This magnetically created energy is retained in the water’s memory and ultimately will give the consumer a type of Bio Energy that is in harmony with all life. So the choice of AC to DC power supplies is essential, even critical for the production of silver water.

      4. The choice of water is also critical. By using the 2 wire colloidal system for colloidal silver production requires near distilled water otherwise all manner of Energies, Frequencies and Vibrations are imparted into the water. With the 4 wire format like that found in the SilverJoe Cell, the type of water required is a science in itself. A limited explanation goes like this: Water that is charged by the earth has the same charge as the earth, so being like charges, they try to repel each other. Naturally occurring Earth Charged water can be found in springs at or near the top of mountains. This Earth Charged water is known historically to have both healing benefits and life force energies. This spring water is the ideal from which to make Silver water from. It also needs to be pure, sweet and fresh to the taste and smell. For more information see joecellwaterscience.

      5. The SilverJoe will test the water for you. If the water has a bad smell or taste it’s of no use. Almost all municipal or town waters are not appropriate for use with the SilverJoe cell silver water generator due to artificial additives. Water purified by osmosis or similar is also not recommended as filtered water only filters taste and smell and these will unfortunately return when processed by the SilverJoe. Water marketed by the major soft drink companies generally are not recommended for use with the SilverJoe Cell. We have found that real fresh bottled from a natural source spring water is the best water to use. Glacial melt mountain stream water is often acceptable as it’s energised by flowing down a stream making sure it’s collected before it is contaminated by man-made pollutants.

      6. The right water, coupled with the right format of Silver rods powered up with the right voltage and amperage in the correct format, will make a glass of “silver water” in 5 minutes. A true elixir.

      Advantages of the SilverJoe Cell over standard 2 wire products.

      • QUANTITIES UP TO A LITRE A DAY MAY BE CONSUMED AS THE PRODUCT IS NON-TOXIC
      • YOU WON’T TURN BLUE
      • THE SILVER WIRES DO NOT DEGRADE
      • TRUE SILVER WATER RATHER THAN COLLOIDAL SILVER WATER IS PRODUCED
      • IT CAN BE MADE IN MINUTES RATHER THAN HOURS
      • YOU NOT ONLY GET THE BENEFITS OF THE SILVER, YOU BENEFIT FROM ENERGIZED WATER AS WELL

      Disadvantages of the SilverJoe Cell over 2 wire products.

      • AFTER 10 YEARS OF PRODUCTION AND NUMEROUS CUSTOMER SURVEYS, NO DISADVANTAGE HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED.

      This initial paper outlining the process of making Silver Water as opposed to colloidal silver is for the benefit of interested persons who understand the ingenuity of always looking for a better way. We have not gone into the benefits of why one makes silver water to use in one’s daily routine as these have been covered and we agree with the historical usage of ‘colloidal silver’. We have just found a safer and quicker way to make it. Please take the time to view a short video at joecellwaterscience on how to make a glass of SilverJoe water.

      It is advised to not duplicate or reverse engineer the SilverJoe without proper analysis as ANY variance from its original design and material construction will guarantee it doesn’t work properly.
      That’s Field Science for you.

      NB. The device SilverJoe Cell also has an add-on that acts much like a zapper/energizer/detox system. But this isn’t the thread to bring that forth. Stay tuned. Stay energised and stay healthy with the SilverJoe Cell for all your silver needs.

  2. Colloidal Silver is phrankenscience. Its based on particles. Chemistry is about Energy Fields. Science is about energy fields. As in the Electric Universe and Electric Sun we also have the electric ‘atom’.
    This more correct science of Chemistry gives rise to “FIELD SCIENCE” and with it, one can improve the science of “colloidal” silver. For more information on a quantum leap in this alternative healing solution go to joecellwaterscience and read about the SilverJoe Cell. This is Tesla’s Science where everything is energy, frequency and vibration.
    It makes all other “colloidal” silver products on the planet obsolete. Start upgrading your life now.
    In a nutshell
    The format of 4 silver wires, and the unique way to energize the 4 wires plus the voltage and amperage to harmonize the silver with the water TRANSMUTES the water into silver. The wires NEVER degrade.
    Definitely light years ahead of wire degrading parts per million.

    • I make mine with four 9 volt batteries hooked together and two pure silver rods. pos to one and neg to the other. usually let them in distilled water for about half an hour or so, sometimes longer if I forget them. The water is fairly cear at first then turns a light amber in a couple hours in the cupboard out of sunlight. According to one web site just swishing it around in your mouth for about three min. gives you a good dose. Like a nitro pill under the tougue. Haven’t had a cold or been sick in years. WORKS FOR ME !

  3. Can someone suggest a good Colloidal Silver brand? None that I see are dark, like this article recommends.

    (“The particles in true colloidal silver keep the light from passing through, and this makes the color appear to be darker. It will not be clear.”)

    • Justin.
      You have finally come to the right place.
      I would recommend that you visit the website joecellwaterscience.com and read about the SilverJoe Cell. It is based upon something far superior than wire degrading science.
      The Science of “colloidal” silver has been upgraded.

      • Just a couple points from joecellwaterscience

        1. The wires do not degrade, ever, no silver is removed from the wires. We do not make “colloidal” silver. We make Silver Water or a true elixir. This is NEW science. (or perhaps the old science of Alchemy?) It does not degrade the silver, the environment, the Fukushima/chernobles, ozone, or the skin as in blueing.

        2. Its been more than 10 years in the testing. Many people have drank a liter of “silver water’ per day and some this much right through their pregnancy. No argyria.
        3. We are not speeding up the process. We have a NEW SCIENCE process. The old two wire process degrades the wires, ours does not. That constitutes a new process.
        4. There are several ways to connect the +pos and -neg from the DC power supply and only one “format” works. The others “may” strip silver from the wires. This is part of the IP.

        5. If the 4 wires are too far apart it doesnt work at all. We create a “field” around the wires to transmute the water into silver. There is a formula for length, diameter and spacing.

        So the “science” and “medical” benefits of Colloidal Silver can be enhanced a 1000 fold by utilizing the principles of “Field Science”.

        As with most breakthroughs in Science, its necessary to wait til the old proponents die before the new ideas are excepted. It’s time for humanity to advance from this mindset.

        It should also be mentioned that the ‘magnetic energy’ from the DC imparts a life force energy into the water that benefits all biological and plant life that consumes this Silver Water. Something that the process of Wire degrading silver particles cant do.

        The video is there as an instructional how to make it. Another one showing the ‘water testing’ abilities will be posted soon. This device has many uses. Making Silver Water to replace toxic colloidal silver is but one.

        The device SilverJoe Cell also has an add-on that acts much like a zapper/energizer/detox system. But this isnt the forum to bring that forth.

    • Please recommend a good brand or website to purchase CS. Thanks

  4. Is Sovereign Silver Manufactures by Natural immunogenicity Corp a safe true silver? The label states 96% positively charged silver particles 99.99% pure. No added salts or proteins. Just pure silver in pure water. If not can someone recommend the best Colloidal for purchase?

    • That’s what I currently use. It is said that the smaller silver molecule can penetrate our cell wall. I’m not up to the point where I have the space to make my own, so that is what I am using.

  5. How long will purchased Collidial Silver last? I ghae a bottle of ASAP Collidial Silver, 22 PPM, and bottle shows an expiration date of 2012. Still have it, but does it truly deteriorate over time?

    • Government required date has nothing to do with real shelve life. Six year old ASAP Silver effectiveness is no different than fresh made, and should be good for twenty years or more when stored away from light and sealed.

  6. İBRAHİM DEĞERLİ

    Hello there

    I live in Turkey and I am extremely interested in the silver water. There are a lot of people in the world who are struggling on the pens of a lot of diseases that they do not know desperately. I am very sorry for this situation. I have a lot of empathy to help. I want to help. This business is my second planet for me. You can sell it for a lot of things, but there are a lot of people who do not have money and need help. I want to reach them.
    Turkey also have people who make the silver water production. All of them are earning money from this business. No one wants to know about this issue because if the producers teach, their sales will fall. I do not think like other producers. I want to help sick people. According to my understanding, there is no distinction between Muslims and Christians. There are good people, bad people for me. Merciful people, merciless people. Help me if you have a favor in you. In the hope of helping you.

    As a result of my research, I have reached the following opinion.

    1. Correct water (Distilled pure water)
    2. Correct Silver (999.9% pure silver.)
    3. Direct current (particle size is very important for silver to work in the body.

    *. How many volts should be the direct current for the particle size?
    *. Effect of water heat in making colloidal silver water?
    *. Do you need any mixer (Magnetic fish or air bubble) when making Colloidal Silver Water?
    *. Is the ambient light effective (dark-light) when making colloidal silver water?
    *. Does the ambient temperature affect colloidal silver water?
    *. When making a Colloidal Silver Water, should it be given different progressive currents or a constant current should be preferred?

    That’s all for now. I am trying to make a Kolloidal Silver Water at home with a 9 volt 300mA current. I cut the current and filter it when the Tds is 10 ppm. After the filter, I add it to the dark bottles. I’m not sure how the particle size is going to be. I am doing this shortly.
    The colloidal silver water I make at home is colorless, but the taste is painful. How do I prevent oxidation that occurs with electrolysis?

    Please send this message to an expert in this matter? Please respond to me with the right information as soon as possible. I believe you will help. I thank you very much already.
