12/31/2010: Anita from Valley Park, Missouri: "Two weeks ago I had bronchitis setting in. Then two days after I started getting the bronchitis, I woke up with a raging, burning sore throat and felt so ill, that I was thinking about calling in sick for work. Desperate, I grabbed the my Colloidal Silver that comes with an eyedropper, tilted my head back and squirted it across the back of the roof of my mouth, letting it run down into my throat. (Only used about 1/4 dropper). Within literally seconds, the pain was easing! The left side more so than the right and realized that I used more on that side than the other.. So I reapplied more to the right. Sure enough, both sides were now feeling nearly perfect! It was so fast, it was astonishing! And, I am not talking about a little better... I mean the pain completely gone! I waited a few more minutes and to be on the safe side, applied it one more time. About three hours later, a little discomfort started back up, so I reapplied it again, and once more, had the same results. Discomfort gone in no time at all. Kept up with the silver every six hours after that for next three days, making certain it was completely gone. Now, what was crazy, was that I hadn't even noticed nor thought about the fact that my bronchitis had also cleared up! This stuff is an absolute Godsend! It will heal a canker sore lightening fast and I also recently used it on what I thought was a brown recluse spider bite. Both issues disappeared in no time! (Used food-grade hydrogen peroxide also on bite). Please note: Most colloidal silvers sold today are in the 20-40 ppm range and I would think, probably would not work. The 500 is very concentrated yet safe, even for children. This is a must have in every medicine cabinet!"
[YEA] 03/20/2010: Kittymom from Northern, Nm : "To Whom It May Wellfully Concern, all kinds of animals and humans, too. To all you kitty lovers out there whose kitties/doggies are quite impossible to brush their teeth, try putting some drops of colloidal silver in their daily drinking water. as it is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral, it keeps the mouth germs down to a minimum. A kitty who had 3 teeth out 2yrs ago, had an exam recently and her mouth was in good shape due to this little tip! also, cured in a couple of day, an oozing cold in her eye. you can use it safely in eyes, ears, nose or directly in mouth as a holistic viral/bacterial natural medicine. it is great! and almost tasteless.
As a human being i use it myself often to keep germs from making havoc by squirting a few drops down my throat and in my nose every time i'm out and about in crowds/hospitals, etc.-where germs are rampant, also whenever i get a hint of soar throat. i squirt a few drops and voila they're dead and i'm all well!"Replies
[YEA] 06/07/2012: Javier from Atlanta, Georgia replies: "Colloidal Silver (la plata coloidal) is an amazing natural antibiotic. About 5 years ago my wife suffered from a sever kidney infection. During the middle of the night she woke up with an agonizing pain on both sides of her pack. I rushed her to the hospital and there was a 2 hour wait in the ER room. I was freaked out!!
I remembered in my car I kept an first aid emergency kit containing a number of things and Colloidal Silver being one of them. I never used Colloidal Silver before, I read about it years before online, however I didn't know if Colloidal Silver would help her in this situation. None the less, I administered several drops under her tongue every 20 minutes. In about an hour and half her kidney pain reduced by about 80%. After, we were called into the ER room, the doctor ran a lab test on her and confirmed she had a kidney infection and the doctor stated that only antibiotics can cure this.
The doctor recommend series of antibiotic shots over the course of several days. Because he was good in scaring us into taking the shot, we accepted the first shot and declined all others as we wished to continue with only the colloidal silver. We continued the colloidal silver treatment for the whole week reducing the frequency of the drops as the days went by.
About 2 years later I then developed a kidney infection. What a painful experience it was. Rather then going to the ER I self administered colloidal silver under my tongue every 20 minutes. The pain completely disappeared in about 4-5 hours - gradually and noticeably subsiding as every hour went by. What an amazing product. I highly recommend that everyone keep a bottle of colloidal silver at home and in their vehicle.
Translated to Spanish for my Spanish friends:
La plata coloidal es un antibiÃ³tico natural impresionante. Alrededor de 5 aÃ±os, mi esposa sufrÃa de una infecciÃ³n renal severa. Durante la mitad de la noche se despertÃ³ con un dolor agonizante en ambos lados de la espalda. La lleve al hospital y tuvimos que esperar por 2 horas en la sala de urgencias. Me asustÃ©!
Me acordÃ© que en mi coche me quedÃ© un kit de primeros auxilios de emergencia que contiene una serie de cosas y la plata coloidal es uno de ellos. Nunca habÃa usado la plata coloidal antes, he leÃdo acerca de Ã©l aÃ±os antes en la internet, sin embargo yo no sabia si la plata coloidal le ayudarÃa en esta situaciÃ³n. Sin embargo, le administre unas gotas bajo la lengua cada 20 minutos. En aproximadamente una hora y media su dolor en los riÃ±ones redujo en un 80%. DespuÃ©s, fuimos llamados a la sala de urgencias, el doctor hizo una prueba de laboratorio en ella y confirmÃ³ que tenÃa una infecciÃ³n en el riÃ±Ã³n y el mÃ©dico dijo que los antibiÃ³ticos sÃ³lo se puede curar esto.
El mÃ©dico recomendo una serie de inyecciones de antibiÃ³ticos por el transcurso de varios dÃas. Debido a que nos asusto diciendonos que debia mi esposa aceptar la inyeccion del antibiotico para combatir la infeccion, ella aceptÃ³ la primere infeccion y se negÃ³ a todas los demÃ¡s, ella decidio continuar sÃ³lo con la plata coloidal. Continuo con el tratamiento de plata coloidal toda la semana y fuimos reduciendo la frecuencia de las gotas conforme pasaban los dÃas.
Unos 2 aÃ±os mÃ¡s tarde luego desarrolle una infecciÃ³n en el riÃ±Ã³n. Que fue una experiencia dolorosa. En lugar de ir a la sala de emergencia me auto-administre la plata coloidal debajo de la lengua cada 20 minutos. El dolor desapareciÃ³ por completo en alrededor de 4-5 horas - de manera gradual y notablemente remitiendo a todas las horas pasaban. Que producto tan asombroso. Altamente recomiendo que todo el mundo tenga una botella de plata coloidal en casa y en su vehÃculo."
[YEA] 07/28/2012: Trish from Lasvegas, Nevada replies: "Hello out there. I just want you all to know how real colloidal silver is. I have had herpes since I was a kid using the silver on any outbreak immediately stopped the infection. Also I have suffered from UTI's my whole life, when I feel one coming on I dose myself three times and it goes away. No trips to the doctor, no antibiotics. This is for real. And if the idea of the blue guy scares you do your research. How many people have been really been effected by this side affect, the answer will surprise you..."
[YEA] 08/11/2012: Carole from Takoma Park, Maryland replies: "Colloidial Silver---I have been using colloidial silver spray for close to five years with excellent results. Sitting at a help center, one gets coughed on, unless I had my spray nearby, I would be getting all those cough induced problems too. A stuffy nose for whatever reason---a nasal spray to each nostril brings instant relief. I use it primarily as a topical solution for cuts and abrasions. Used on a sore throat, the result is instantaneous--spray to the back of the throat, hold a minute before swallowing if you can, when you swallow a second time, the pain is gone. I have used a few drops in water and used it for a vaginal rinse for a yeast infection---end of yeast infection. If I were to use it by ingesting, I wouldn't take it from a spoon. I would suspend it in water and drink it a few times a day to kill off a bacterial infection, but I haven't need of doing so. There's plenty of information on the web--most interesting is---before there were antibiotics, people used silver. I think it's important to have something on hand to use as preventative. One thinks of the tragic cases in the news resulting in death, from a simple scrape in the school gym or the tetanus that a woman got from a cut while doing garden work. A spray of colloidial silver would act as an immediate anti-bacterial, anti-fungal. I would caution anyone to use only the prepared product, this is not something to be made at home, without question. The silver particles must be minute, the water it is suspended in must be pure. There are things to be done homemade, this is not one of them. No amount of money saved is worth the risk of using a faulty product---please don't give colloidial silver a bad rep by making something at home which will be counter to the miracles of the stuff. You've wasted more than fifteen dollars a bottle before.... Buy a pure product."
09/03/2012: Mare from Clemmons, North Carolina, Usa replies: "I discovered the beneficial effects of colloidal silver years ago and will never be without it in my medicine cabinet. I've used it for infections, 'flu, colds, and as a preventative when I think I've been exposed to some contaminant."
[YEA] 02/19/2010: Sergio from Kenosha, Wisconsin: "Hi,
First of all I love your website, thank you for making it available to all!
I never knew what colloidal silver was until I found out about it and thoroughly researched its negative and positive sides. ALL negative sides of using Silver comes from people who are making money from pharmaceutic drugs and Silver just stand on their way of ripping people of their hard earned cash. ALL positive sides of Silver come from regular people like me (student) and the rest who have nothing to GAIN BUT HEALTH benefits!
What Colloidal Silver does for me is it heals 'cold sores' in no time, 2-4 days instead of usual 2 weeks from the time I feel tingling, the amazing thing is that NO VESICLES appear and the whole sore spot starts to dry up and heal! Cold sores are Herpex Simplex Virus (HSV-1) -that appears on on the lips. (there is also HSV-2 -genital type, but I do not have it). I would take a mouth full of silver in my mouth 6-10 times a day and hold it in my mouth for as long as possible and swallow it.
Colloidal Silver also helped me with a sore throat I was developing as I am one of those people that I would get a sore throat 1-2 times a year from Dec to March, like a law, when the sore throat was coming and I was feeling it in the morning, I drank about 500mL (500CC) of Silver within 2 days, and I never developed the sore throat and cough than comes with it!! Amazing. The Silver also helps me from getting a sore throat when I come from a shower in the winter and go outside in cold weather, if I didn't drink silver, I would have developed a sore throat and a cough for at least 2 weeks time with bronchi inflammation -100% every time. With Silver I feel like I have an extra immunity shield against germs, bacteria, virii, and other pathogens.
Another thing is that Silver sprayed on bite marks from mosquitoes reduces all itching to virtually 0 in 1-2 hrs, leaving almost no red marks next day. You have to spray 3-4 times within those 2 hrs on the bite mark.
I also put Colloidal silver in my eye one day when it became red for no reason. I felt nothing bad, and the redness went away the next day. I sprayed it in my nose, in my throat, put it in my eye, drank it, and I am fine, full of energy and feel great! I recommend it to almost anyone who I see is sick or is interested in gaining my knowledge.
I make my own Colloidal Silver with a small electronic gadget your can purchase anywhere if you do enough research online. I make about between 5-10 ppm -measure it with PWT (pure water tester) or you can buy a TDS meter (TOtal Disolved Solids) -but it's less precise than a TDS but cheaper of course, use ONLY distilled water, put no salt in the water or anything else!, and I do not heat my water, just use room temperature distilled water and use ONLY .9999% pure silver or 99.99%. NEVER use Sterling Silver as it contains other metals that make it toxic to drink. When buying silver-ask for a certificate of purity.
Keep your batch of Silver in DARK PLACE, never put it in the fridge. Never drink it if it turns dark (gold color is OK).
I recommend everyone invest time in your health, and your knowledge will extend your life! Read, do research, and be open minded. Watch less TV and be responsible for your actions. :)"
[YEA] 04/01/2012: Patrizia from Pocatello, Idaho replies: "I had HPylori (bacteria). Not only was I burping up acid in my esophagus, but it burned behind my nose and all the way down into my stomach. I suffered from it for 13 years. A physician wanted me to take prilosec, but a big caution, it can cause stomach cancer and a host of other things. I purchased a ________ ionic colloidal silver generator.
Anyway, the acid relux was horrid and I drank 16 ounces of the 7 ppm ionic colloidal silver daily and within 2 weeks, the HPylori was gone. It is the bacteria that causes peptic ulcers and even stomach cancer. My girlfriend's sister just recently passed away at 49. She had taken prilosec for 6 years and it ate away her sphincter in her stomach. She asperated her stomach contents and died. I can't believe how Big Pharma can get away with poisons and killing people.
one must be careful if you buy ionic colloidal silver, because a lot of it is JUNK!
Make your own and know what you are making. I thank my friend for telling me about the silver water. I would be afraid to drink anything that is produced with wires, batteries, silver wire and this costs me 1.00 dollar per gallon and uses a solid troy ounce of PURE silver.
05/03/2012: Tgm from Milwaukee, Wisconsin replies: "Can you please let us know HOW TO MAKE colloidal silver? If you can't mention brands here then please email me directly. I'm in desperate need of coll. Silver theegapman(at)yahoo(dot)com Thanks so much :)"
[YEA] 03/30/2009: Ingo from Pattaya, Chonburi/Thailand: "Even though I live in the tropics I often caught a flu. When I got wet in a rain and I could not change my shirt and dry my hair, inevitably I had a stuffed nose the next day, sometimes even with fever. Then some years ago I came across 'Colloidal Silver' [CS] on the internet. I ordered from US a water distiller and a colloidal silver maker. Since then no more flu. When I get wet now in a rain I just take a sip of CS, repeat this every 2-3 hours. What happens is when the flu virus attacks I have to sneeze, which is proof for its presence, I drink CS this is the end of the story. They say that CS kills more than 600 different germs, including fungi. I also use CS externally. That's how I got rid of my dandruff and fungus on my chest. BTW it also works like magic on insect bites, the itching stops almost immediately."Replies

[YEA] 02/15/2009: Ray from Crystal River, Florida/ USA: "I have used Colloidal Silver for fifteen years now with great results. I make my own silver and only use it when I needed. It cures any infection I've tried it on. Things I have cured with it are, tooth or gum infections, ingrown toe nails, flu, food poisoning, ear, eye, sinus infections. I use it on everything. I find it much better than any antibiotic with few reactions. The only bad reaction I notice is when taken internally. It slows the bowl action due to killing bacteria internally. The way I start a treatment? If it's an internal problem drink about 8oz of colloidal silver.Then about every hour drink about four ozs during the waking hours.You will see a difference soon. It's faster than a strong antibioctic that has many bad reactions. The solution I use is about 12 to 15ppm. Feel free to comtact me if I can help. Just a reminder that I am the average guy that tried silver with great results. I am a true believer"Replies

[YEA] 01/02/2009: Julie from Hanover Park, IL: "Colloidial Silver is an awesome remedy for virtually any bacterial infection; internal or external. I have cured my dog's eye and ear irritations (and my pink eye) with a couple drops, the results were immediate. It comes in drops or spray and I have both. I spray my dog's cuts, sores, rashes and teeth because it does not sting. Antibiotics are inferior to Colloidial Silver, which was commonly used before antibiotics were popularized. It is found at health food and Meijer stores and is inexpensive for its many possible uses. Research it; you'll be glad you did."Replies

03/31/2013: Ejules from Woodbridge, Us: "My family discovered Colloidal Silver over 15 years ago and it's been a staple in our first aid kit since then - both liquid and gel. We've had success with using it as many others on this site report.
Last year I got "pink eye" (conjunctivitis infection) in one eye and unfortunately for me I used the Dr's prescription first. Wow! The pain from the Rx was 10 times worse (and at multiple times a day for several days) than the infection itself. Now, whenever I feel either eye feeling strange in ANY way, I put a few drops of silver sol in it and the eye is relieved almost immediately. I'd highly recommend this for babies and small children instead of torturing kids wth an excrutiating Rx (Sorry, I don't remember the name of the Rx.)
One caution, I was looking for how to make my own and I ran across the page (link below) that discusses and compares types of silver solutions. It's worth a look to make sure that you are using the kind that will be effective for you. http://www.silver-colloids.com/"

[YEA] 06/21/2010: Anna from Charleston, Sc replies: "I, too, once had pink eye and didn't want to go to the doctor since I didn't have health insurance at the time. My mom (a registered nurse) recommended that I try a few drops of colloidal silver in my eyes upon waking in the morning, and again at night before bed. The first day, I put 2 drops in each eye 3 times, and when I woke the next morning, my eyes were about 95% better! They were no longer itchy, red, or watery, but still felt a little sore. So I kept my contacts out for another day and continued putting colloidal silver drops in my eyes and was completely back to normal within 48 hours. I now use it orally for an overall immunity boost, and still use it in my eyes occasionally when my seasonal allergies flare up...a definite must-have in my opinion!!"

I suggest buying a suringe (without needle) cheap from the pharmacy and use a pure silver colloidial of either 6ppm or more. Suck up the colloidial silver with the suring till full and insert in vagina and shoot the collodial silver up, (do it over the toilet because it runs out)...

The silver that I use is called Invision Silver 100. I've used it for about 20 years and always keep a bottle on hand. It comes in a dropper or a spray bottle and I keep both. I've used this in my own eyes too when they have been bloodshot and felt irritated and the red goes away in minutes. There are several holistic doctors that use this brand and that is the main reason that I switched. The brand that I use to use had a short shelf life of only about 3 months. The Silver 100 is good for years. I use it so much though that I buy 2 or 3 bottles a year."

[SIDE EFFECTS] 11/05/2013: Child Of Colloidal Silver Victim from USA: "WARNING: My father drank homemade colloidal silver for many years and it permanently turned his skin gray, his hair shiny white or yellow and his nails dark gray. He died this last month with multiple problems, many caused by the colloidal silver, including kidney failure, congestive heart failure, and a fast moving pancreatic cancer. DO NOT take silver in any form. It is a heavy metal and will cause toxicity in the body. We DO need silver and all the other minerals in trace amounts, but not in large enough amounts that warrant taking it special.
Eating food that grew in healthy soil will get you all the silver you need. If need be, build up your soil through natural means (compost, manure), then grow your own food. This is how to get a balance of all trace minerals. Do you suppose that a worm or other bug would be able to survive in a high concentration of silver?
Look up and see which nutrients are essential for health, then see the amounts needed. Iron is one, but if you take very much at all, you get a headache. It is the balance of nutrients in your body that keeps you well. Arsenic is also a trace mineral, but you certainly don't want to take any discernable amount or it will kill you."Replies

11/05/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello "Child of Colloidal Silver Victim"
So sorry to hear about your dad and his argyria.
You said he made his own CS. Could you tell me how he did it. I've been looking for someone for a long time to tell me what process is used where the bad skin coloring side effects took place.
I've made my own for 20 years nearly and drink it five days a week and use topically and as an irrigation if infected. No side effects.
Again, I'm so sorry for what happened to your father. I too had a wonderful father and I gave him CS to drink daily for about fifteen years. His immune system was compromised and I had him on the CS to help kill fungal and viral invaders. He died at 88 years old of diabetes related issues. And his skin was as white as mine.
So because you were willing to write about your dad, would you please describe exactly how he made the Silver product he consumed. For instance, did he use strands of silver or pieces of silver? Did he use an electrical method or some other means of deriving the silver solution? Was the final product a "creamy" product or invisible in water? How often did he consume the product? How did he consume it?...by mouth on applied to skin? Anything you can do to describe his protocol in producing the silver product plus how he ingested the product might help others not to repeat in like manner.
Many of us who make CS would really appreciate knowing how this happened...argyria.

11/06/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello Steve from Nevada,
When I read the victim of CS article I thought the same thing...this is a planted story.
So I wrote to the writer, but assumed the story was for real and asked the writer to describe in detail how the dad made the CS. We KNOW that properly made CS will not cause argyria. We know from experience. But I've been trying to find a few people who do suffer with argyria to find the way they made their CS. What in the world were they doing? The correct ...non "toxic" method is so simple, it's baffling to me how someone could get it wrong ... so I keep asking. One writer a month or so ago on EC said someone in his neighborhood had argyria and so I wrote that poster back and asked him if he could just contact that neighbor to make an inquiry. Poster wrote back that...no...the neighbor with argyria had moved...or something like that.
So I keep "challengling" someone to tell me how the argyria victim actually produced his product and just can't find anybody who will "fess up" with details.
The issue that is unresolved with CS makers...is this: we all (except some odd group that get argyria) use the electric process...right?...OK, so the question is how to proceed ... by using a few grains of salt in the heated water to get conductive process quickly or to not add anything and just wait for thirty minutes, the latter being what I call the "slow" method. That method apparently produces a surface area of the silver particles less than the quicker method. The quicker method gives a larger surface area. But that is not necessairly bad. I've read articles that discuss the advantage of large surface area and have actually had my cs tested at a lab in comparison with two other commercial brands. Only difference in the photos of the three was surface area. Mine was a bit larger (visually).
I keep looking for a technical analysis that is definative: Mainly looking for a double blind study that demonstrates the superiority of one over the other. I'm open minded on this. My way may not be the best way but the way I've done it has worked for 20 years.
Steve, do you make your own; and if so by what method?"

On your unopened brown bottle of CS. Of course, you can use it. But why just external? I said on this EC site probably fifty times that I drink CS regularly and have for 20 years. For sore throat I gargle with it and poof, sore throat gone. If this were me, not knowing the effect of CS and having a nice little brown bottle of the stuff just sitting there looking pretty, well I'd at least experiment with it the first sinus infection I got. For sinus infection, I put in palm of my hand and sniff into sinus...it will sting on both sides but on one side more than the other. Repeat ten min later. Usually, drainage follows and 90 percent of the time the infection is gone.
Best to you,

Let me share my C.S. production story. I bought a unit from AtlasNova which promotes a "slow cook" for up to 12 hrs at a 300 hz? power for the smallest particle at dense concentration. I don't have a meter so I can't tell ppm but the company supplies a laser light to help gage density. I cook 1/2 gallon mason jar batch at approx 500?(reading on ohmeter thingy) for about 4 hrs. I do not heat or add salt. To speed the process A.N. recommends adding a few spoons of C.S. from the previous batch (i find no real difference either way here).

Re Colloidal Silver production methods.
Thank you so much for relaying your method. Your method is the opposite of how I do mine. Yours is slow and does not use any conductive add in, while I use a bit of salt, and I call mine "fast"....not using the term "slow" as derisive...your's could be more effective than mine.
Wouldn't it be interesting to compare and contrast on effectiveness. You've obvioulsly gotten good results from your "slow" process as I from my "fast" method.
Once I did use another commercial "super" silver supposedly producing very small particulates of silver and tried it on my stuborn (allergy caused?) sinus stuffiness. Had it since youth and so every year would have five or six bad colds. Often that would turn into bronchitis. But twenty years ago started up on the CS (fast method is how I was taught by a very tech smart guy)...and since then no colds except maybe once every two years and only two cases of broncitis in 20 years.
But I digress (which often I do), and relate the rest of the story: I was taking the super commercial brand of very small particle CS every day and, what do you know, suddenly I start up with a sinus infection. Can tell they are coming in a minute. So doubled up on the commercial super CS and the sinus infection got worse!
Doubled up again. Worse...and then knew I had to go to my "dirty low down fast CS" and BAM! ...knocked the infection out in one App!
So that taught me a big lesson. Not all CSs are equally potent and some may be worthless.
What I'd love to try is some study which actually tried different CSs both in vivo and vitro. But remember: "In Vivo veritas" so the practical use and effect on a living human is superior to lab results from petri dishes. That's why our anacdotal results are compelling even though not double blind.
I have tons of anacdotals...how bout you?"

In this case the goal is not healing the open sore as yet, the goal is pulling out what's under there (a bump that is getting smaller with application of all sorts of remedies)."
11/07/2013: Timh from Ky, Usa replies: "Unfortunately, my case is complicated by complexity & severity so I have never achieved substantial improvement w/ C.S. overall w/ the exception of an eye infection that after 1 wk prescription anti inflammatory & antibiotic use proved useless. So I did some C.S. drops 2 times day for 2 days and boom, no more infection.
A few yrs back, prior to my own generator, I purchased a Silver product and seemed to encounter a staff infection or something in the gut. I researched and found that C.S. bound to protein has problems w/ shelf life or heat which can decompose the protein. Anyway, I heated the product on cooking stove and continued using w/ no more problems.
Presntly, in the attempt to treat chronic fungal & mycoplasma infection, I take 2 caps Berberine 2 caps Oregon Grape, then a hot bath w/ Borax and Iodine. Fallowing the bath I drink about 8oz C.S., all with a few days improvement.
[SIDE EFFECTS] 01/24/2012: Bradshad from Providence, Rhode Island: "I see alot of people talk about Colloidal silver. There is a warning that should go along with it. Some brands may cause you to turn permanently blue. I think the condition is called Agyria. Look it up. I listened to a webinar about nsp. They claim you can drink there whole bottle and not get Agyria. Food for thought. Stay well."
11/30/2011: Rebel from Somewhere, Usa: "Well Bill maybe I have overlooked what you or Ted has said about colloidal silver on here. But there is so much information on silver that I am just down right confused. About the PPM??? the color???
I purchased some silver from a place that really seems to know there stuff when it comes to herbs, minerials ect. They even do hair test. They sale 500PPM that is dark brown. My local health food store sales sovereign silver which is clear and 10PPM. The guy at the health food store says this is absolutly the very best. On curezone, lots of debate on color and PPM.
Since silver is a metal, Is it safe??? And if so, what PPM and color should the silver be??? It did seem to make my sons dry cough go away using the clear 10PPM.
I need some guidance on this subject and there is a lady out there that swears silver is not safe and turned her skin grey and it is permenant. She says people often visit her website and are embarrassed after they trusted manufacturers and took the silver and it turned them grey as well.
I don't see where you or Ted talk about silver to much. What about Gold also as long as we are on the subject."Replies

02/19/2012: Jennywren from Perth, Western Australia, Australia replies: "According to what I've read and to what I understand of it, argyria (turning blue) is generally what people get if they (a) make and drink silver that is very high in silver particles or they don't use proper water and/or (b) drink enormous quantities of it (c) for a long time. There's not many of them around. With the lady who turned blue after being given it to her by her doctor (around 50 years ago), it has been said the amount of silver in her nasal drops was very high, and hence the blue/grey tint to her skin. Nowadays it seems we understand this much better and commercial silvers have (or should have! ) a much lower ppm (parts per million) of silver that are suspended in pure water. I use _______ 'My Colloidal Silver', which has a high alkalinity (I'm a very acidic person) and 20ppm. It is clear and has cured many, many ailments in my family. It's expensive too, unfortunately. But we are still rosy cheeked! ;) Hope this helps!! "

However, after around 10 years of making my own silver reading and researching I finally got it. If you read my post ''HOME MADE SILVER '' you to will get it once and for all and no one will ever turn blue with this silver! Mark"
[SIDE EFFECTS] 11/21/2011: Bofree from Eureka, Ca/usa: "Before you get too trigger happy with the colloidal silver, you may want to look up a condition called Argyria. Though I believe it's only cosmetic, it does turn the skin anywhere from gray to blue to black and is caused by silver particles suspended in the tissues of the body darkening."Replies
05/25/2012: Oc from Mims, Fl, Usa replies: "Regarding the man and woman who are now blue from using CS: they both INTENTIONALLY consumed extremely excessive, high ppm amounts internally, and also applied it to their skin and immediately baked in the sun or in a tanning booth. They are blue because they wanted to be blue. They have interviews posted online, as well as having been guests on talk shows."
02/22/2011: Cwilly from Kennewick, Wa, Usa: "Has anyone ever experienced a change in body scent from using silver hydrosol? I started giving it to my son and taking it myself a week or so ago. My son who is 12 has been on various medications for a genetic immune deficiency and also gets immuneglobulin infusions monthly. I have noticed a very strong odor coming off him since I started giving him the silver - 1tsp per day. It is not b.o. or that typical musky odor. I have never smelled any odor like it before.
He does not drink enough water which I am always after him to do. I'm thinking he may need to drink more to flush out his tissues? I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?"
02/27/2011: Lisa from Waynesboro, Va replies: "I noticed that at times there is an odor if I am taking a bath; a sort of a metal smell. It seems that I can also detect an odor with Hydrogen peroxide. it could be that drinking water may flush it through."
03/02/2011: Cwilly from Kennewick, Wa, Usa replies: "After 2 weeks the smell is finally starting to go away. I also remembered that he had gotten his IVIG therapy the same day I started giving him the silver. Maybe it was a reaction between the two? I have had him drink nothing but 9.5 alkaline water. He barely drinks 30 oz per day but that is an improvement over his normal habits. Also gave him olive leaf extract a few times along with his regular vitamins. So far no other effects except he has been a little extra tired.
I would still love to get any reader feedback.
08/27/2011: Brenda from Springfield, Il replies: "When I take CS, I always notice a "metal" odor in my urine. It is sometimes extremely strong. But the longer I take CS, the odor minimizes. I believe the odor is a product of detoxification. I do drink lots of water to help flush it away."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 08/07/2010: Jillian from Toronto, On: "Hi, can someone please help me understand why after spraying CS into my throat I get an achy feeling on one side of my tongue/throat. If I drink something after CS - the feeling goes away. Why is that? I dont have any ache generally prior to spraying the silver. It is the same feeling as if someone is developing a sore throat/tongue on one side. I do not cough nor do I have any pain in my throat usually. Appreciate your help."Replies

I'm not "freezing" but if I think about it I notice my whole body is having chills. I'm only ingesting 1/2 tblsp/day to get rid of sore throat and earache. Could I be doing something wrong or do I need to add something else to my regimen?"
01/10/2011: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Take less, or try a different remedy on this site. Always back down when having side effects. If that makes it take longer to heal, so be it."
01/10/2011: Rob from Manhattan, Ny replies: "I would recommend Bee Propolis over colloidal silver, especially for sore throat. With a tincture formula of 30% to 50%, tip the head back, mouth open wide drop onto the back of throat. It is tar like in its consistency so will stick to that area. Perform small dose test 1st make sure you are not allergic. An invaluable remedy especially for the winter season. There is a man in my neighborhood with a completely grey skin condition called Argyria caused by over use of colloidal silver... enough to scare me away from it.
This requires tipping the head back, mouth open wide and dropping the substance directly on to the affected area. "
