Colloidal silver



It has been used to help alleviate various health conditions such as, sinus infections and sore throats, pink eye, gram positive and gram negative bacteria, eczema, herpes, ear infections and acne to name a few, and may also be beneficial for animals.  Other uses are for water purification, catheters, wound dressings, bone prostheses and for cleaning cardiac devices and surgical appliances.  

Colloidal silver may be taken orally or used topically.  It has low toxicity and high therapeutic activity agains pathogenic microorganisms.  Colloidal silver acts like an antibiotic, without killing beneficial bacteria.  It is reported to works against Gram-positive bacteria S. aureus and S. epidermidis, and Gram-negative bacteria E. Coli and P. Aeruginosa, which cause disease and illness in humans and animals.

Colloidal Silver is a mineral solution containing silver ions & very small charged silver particles suspended in a distilled water.  The particles have the same electrostatic charge, so they repel each other which keeps them in uniform suspension. This is why it is called a colloid.  It contains both ionic and particulate silver at an approximate ratio of 80% ionic & 20% particulate silver.  It is important to understand that the silver particles are not dissolved but held in suspension by electrostatic charges. Without them, it would not be a colloid and not Colloidal Silver.  

Although silver ions are important, a 100% solution of silver ions is NOT Colloidal Silver and is sometimes referred to as “Nano Silver” because the particles are in the range of 1 to 40 Nanometres (nm).

There are no industry standards for colloidal silver producers so please ensure you purchase your colloidal silver products from a reputable source to ensure safety.  Not recommended for long term use, see your practitioner for chronic conditions.

How I use colloidal silver.

  • Spray directly onto hands as a hand steriliser
  • 2-3 sprays 3 times a day for sore throats and tonsillitis, as soon as possible
  • Gargle for sore throats 3-6 times daily
  • In a nasal spray for infections
  • 2 drops into eye with conjunctivitis
  • 5ml 3 times daily for coughs, colds, infections and food poisoning
  • In a spray as a kitchen antibacterial cleanser
  • For cleaning wounds and cuts
  • Great for pets and children too!

I recommend colloidal silver for short term use and not for chronic long term health issues.
