Colloidal Silver for Sinus Infections

Jul 23, 2016


Colloidal silver is a safe and effective alternative medical treatment for sinus infections, with antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. With nearly 32 million cases reported to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention annually, sinus infections can easily be considered one of the most common low-risk health conditions. However, just because the condition is low-risk in terms of associated health effects does not mean treatment isn't warranted or necessary. Because of pressure, inflammation in the nasal cavity and congestion, a sinus infection can be extremely uncomfortable and even painful. Colloidal silver can help.

The Vicious Treatment Cycle

Many people suffer with sinus infections until they begin feeling pain and see a frequent thick, yellow or greenish nasal discharge. At this point, they turn to sinus medication, triggering the onset of the vicious treatment cycle. Most over-the-counter and even prescribed medications provide only temporary relief and actually end up drying the sinuses and nasal passages. This drying effect prevents the draining of mucous, which leads to further buildup in the sinuses, more pain and more congestion.

Colloidal Silver - The Natural Antimicrobial

Colloidal silver is a home remedy that many people rely on. As soon as they feel the first signs of a sinus infection (or similar ailment), they sniff a teaspoon into the sinus cavity or use a neti pot, take a spoonful or inhale the mist from a nebulizer. A natural mineral, colloidal silver is an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions, sinus infections in particular.

How silver works:

Colloidal silver is a very efficient natural antimicrobial, effective at eliminating hundreds of types of disease-causing bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses. This home cure is so effective, it is frequently used on wound dressings and has performed successfully in a number of research studies.

How to use colloidal silver:

Colloidal silver is typically used in conjunction with a neti pot. The silver is available in a liquid form which can be dropped into a mixture of warm salt water. After mixing, transfer the solution to the neti pot and insert the solution into the nasal passages using the nozzle. Allow the sinuses to drain.

Potential Side Effects

When used in moderation, colloidal silver is considered a safe treatment. However, the product does present the risk of silver accumulation in the body. Those who are pregnant, may become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding should not use the treatment.

This simple treatment defeats the vicious treatment cycle most individuals encounter when it comes to healing a sinus infection. Silver is a natural antimicrobial that eliminates infection without drying the sinuses to produce the highest degree of relief possible.

Had a really bad and sinus infection I have tried organic ACV and lime juice, which was extremely painful and worked a little. Needless to say, after 3 days the symptoms returned. So I decided to try the colloidal silver and within a day my symptoms started to dissipate by the next day I had mild residual.

I used it 3 times a day. Now today is my third day and I am symptom-free. I'll continue to do this for a week twice a day. I think I've found my cure!

Hello, I have a serious sore throat, my ears are plugged and a bit of a cough. I finally went to the doc today and they said it was a sinus infection. She prescribed me antibiotics but I would much rather go the all natural rought. I have colloidal silver and was wondering what sort of dosage should I use. I've had this for 5 days now! Thanks sooooo much! Y'all are a huge help

I use Colloidal Silver with liquid Chlorophyll drops, and a pinch of salt in my Neti pot. Cured my last acute sinus infection in 3 days! Usually takes weeks to a month with antibiotics, followed by digestion issues. This stuff is great when stuffy with light sensitivity if I haven't caught it in time.

Hello Gina,

I use about 40 parts per million. But Colloidal Silver can be effective at 5 parts per million. For sinus infection I make sure I get a through irrigation...that's a "snort" up both sinus passages and with ear syringe into ears also. I gargle with it and drink two tablespoons twice daily.

I repeat the irrigation three times a day or more. A stubborn infection (lipid coated) can require a week of irrigations. Sometimes with the sinus part of the irrigation I use an ear syringe to get a good strong squirt deep into the sinus passages because the infection may be hiding deep.

Expect a sting on one or both the sinus passages. Then later when you re-irrigate, the sting will be much less...the infection is being killed.

Make sure you squirt ears also because that will get the CS into the Eustachian tubes which is where an infection likes to hide.

Don't waste it by putting drops in your ears to treat a sinus infection. Eustachian tubes connect to the middle ear, not the outer ear.

Concerning persistent sinus infections, all the posts above are enlightening and helpful. But if all else fails by all means don't forget to try colloidal silver. Over many years of fighting sinus problems I know this; when allergies strike and I'm getting stuffy, either a virus/fungus/bacteria is at work or the stuffiness will lead to an infection in short order. I get out my trusty colloidal silver (I make my own) and squirt some into both sinus cavities. One side will usually sting a bit. And poof. Stuffyness gone. Maybe one more application to both sinuses. Caught early enough I can knock out 90 percent of all infections immediately. The other 10 percent I have to keep re applying the colloidal silver over a day or two before being completely eliminated. I went from having four or five bad colds/broncial infections a year to none.

What is the recipe for Colloidal Silver?

Hello Rebecca,

I think that was me you were addressing the question to...the reciple for colloidal silver.

First, if you are just starting out trying CS, consider buying a few different brands form the Health Food Store. That's where I first got mine...actually a friend bought it for me. I was very sick at the time. That was 20 years ago.

Please consider looking at the "Remedies" section on EC and look at the article called "Colloidal Silver, Blue Man or Miracle Cure".

If that is not what you are needing, please write back and I'll certainly try to help.

How often during the day would you use the Neti pot with colloidal silver?

Posted by J D (La Canada, California) on 01/30/2013

I came across your website and thought I would get some advice on how to use colloidal silver for a sinus problem.

Eight weeks ago, somehow a sinus pressure behind the eyes, forehead, radiating to the temples began. It seemed kind of sudden, like 1 hour I was normal, and then wham this sinus problem landed in my head.

I have seen my regular physician, took two rounds of some powerful antibiotics, nasal steroids. And no help. She sent me to the ENT, who prescribed be an oral steroid (prednisone) which did not work (only caused me anxiety and depression). I received my results back from the CT scan and they came back pretty much clear. No blockages, no major mucous, no signs of infection. He said I don't have chronic sinusitis.

But the sinus pressure is still there, heavy headed behind the eyes, fatigue, ears full/plugged and I move my jaw around to try to relieve the pressure. I only have sinus mucus (sometimes yellow, sometimes green) in the mornings. Could the CT have missed an infection. I mean I saw with my own eyes, no fluid or blockages????

I read a lot about colloidal silver and purchased a nasal spray. I did about 5 sprays in each nostril this morning and put some in each ear and let sit for 5 minutes. But now I feel more congested in the head, behind the eyes, fatigue, as though as it has back fired on me. Did I do something wrong? is this common or are the results immediate? Should I continue to use the spray in the nostrils. ( the same thing happens when I use neti pot, or a saline nasal spray)

Also, for the past 1.5 weeks I have been on pretty much no carbs, all health greens, cooked and consumed properly.

Any advice on your techniques would be much appreciated, I feel horrible.

What you are experiencing is common and is a die off reaction. Also known as a Herxheimer reaction. This is caused by the toxins released by the dying infection. When this happens, people tend to stop their treatment, this is the wrong thing to do. Stopping treatment will cause the infection to get worse because it senses its dying and will do its best to come back stronger. The best way to neutralize the effects of the die off is by using ozonated water. The oxygen in the water neutralizes the toxins in the body from the dying infection. I would like to take credit for this information but it was discovered by Bob Beck. You can by a cheap water ozonater online. Drink the ozonated glass of water 3 times a day while on your treatment and it will neutralize the die off.

Have you ever tried using a neti pot with neti salt? If not, try it. Make sure to use neti salt not table salt which can irritate the capillaries. I also use colloidal silver taken orally and with a q tip in my sinuses and ears. It's the only thing I've ever found to knock out sinus infections which I rarely have anymore. All antibiotics do is strip your immune system.

HI U SILVER DUDE, , , , , , some may not appreciate your post, but I do. I just finished a tall glass of Ozonated water and was not aware of this effect. I do it to keep my oxygen blood level up. Now, I just need to learn how to get this oxygen into my cells.

I am not there yet and solicit this information from folks smartern me. When we learn this trick then cancer and chronic disease is a thing of the past. If we ever learn how to keep our cells enriched with Oxygen and our pH alkaline, then we have found the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.

I challenge this site and people of the world to take this solution on. There has got to be a simple way to accomplish this. It's a S+2=8 thing. We just have to find it.

HI U SWEET PEA, , , , , , , , , I learned about water from ice and it's benefits from my Russian author. That's not an easy way to go, so we drink ionized alkaline water which we also ozonate.

The O vitamin is new to me. I think I'll defer to what Dr Shallenberger tells me later this year. I do appreciate folks that think and that includes you.

I also want to give a shoutout to Dave as today my eyes were burning like fire. I have sprayed them with Colloidal Silver twice and things are much better.

Guess all have seen the latest news that our wheat is now going the GMO route. It is difficult to believe how corrupt our country has become in the last 60 years. It all began on Jekyll Island, Ga. where the Eastern Capitalist all had vacation cottages.

This group too began the coupe to take over our medical colleges with what is now known as allotropic medicine and destroy anyone or any thing that promotes natural healing.

They have done a dang good job.

I would suggest using colloidal silver with a netipot; this relieves pressure and build up of mucus. Works for me.

Directions: (Netipot w/ colloidal silver)

  1. Put seasalt (iodine free) into netipot
  2. Add purified or distilled water
  3. Add 1 to 2 tsp (depending on potency of colloidal silver) into netipot.
  4. Mix with spoon.

Colloidal silver has been found effective at 1-3 ppm. Much over 5 - 10 is wasted and more likely to be harmful if taken internally.

What is most important is the particle size and you want a "nano" colloidal silver; smaller the better.

Lots of products claim to be nano but few supply the testing evidence for it.

So far, I've been using it orally for cellulitis and intranasally for sinusitis. It hasn't been long -- about 2 day -- but the cellulitis *seems* to be improving. The sinusitis? Not so much. Since cellulitis comes and goes, I'm not ready to give credit to cs, yet but I haven't given up hope for either. Time will tell.

Forgot to include the link for the dosage. It's from a BYU study here

http://beforeitsnews.com/health/2012/10/byu-study-shows-colloidal-silver-is-as-good-as-penicillin-2453862.html

CS killed every bug studied at no more than 5 ppm. That's *every* bug studied -- aerobic AND anaerobic -- including the nasties like h. flu, e. coli, strep, k pneumonia, and others.

The reason it works is that it causes the little buggers to rupture; their cell walls just start leaking and they die off. That's true of ALL living organisms -- including us, presumably but the dose is much lower for single-cell organisms. That's also the reason that it *should* work against fungi as well, or so they say. Haven't seen any medical studies on that.

You can imagine the pharmaceutical industry isn't too pleased with studies of this kind and since they control the purse strings, not too much is being done on it.

After adding a few grains of salt to your Ag + H2O, if the solution stings, add a tiny amount of baking soda to your Ag + H2O. It bumps ph to more alkaline and buffers the solution and will no longer burn. Don't go crazy with the baking soda just a scant "pinch" to 8 oz. of Ag + H2O.

I would like to try it, and it is connected to my neurologists office. I had to have brain surgery in July. I am still suffering with sinus infections. I started drinking cayenne pepper oil yesterday. I still feel headachy but not as severe as yesterday it was totally debilitating and has nothing to do with my brain. I broke my nose in a car accident years ago. I also am incorporating black seed oil into my morning regimen.

If other remedies should fail, consider colloidal silver. My sinus congestion usually is due to infection and silver solution is easy to try. I put it in the palm of my hand, maybe a tablespoon full and sniff up sinus on both sides. Sometimes it sings more on one side. I re apply ten minutes later and more as needed if infection is persistent. I am prone to infections and this remedy has worked for me for over ten years.

I have tried several remedies over the past year, the apple cider vinegar cure and also the Grapefruit Seed Extract for my sinus infections. It absolutely does not work! I just got some colloidal silver spray from the local health food store and in less than one hour I am having relief. I would suggest looking into the very long history of colloidal silver - it also cured a respirtory infection of my husband. Thank you.

The combination of colloidal silver and oil of oregano has done wonders for not only curing sinus infections but also preventing them. At the onset of the infection, where the mucus first starts turning green (indicating infection) I'll not only ingest the liquid colloidal siver (as silver protein, 3ppm) that I get from my local healthfood store, but I'll also put a few drops up my nose while lying on the bed with my head back. For extra measure, I take oil of oregano caps. I have wiped out sinus infections within just days of this treatment.

Silver and oregano work great for me also. I would not use a silver protein though, as they contain salt or other additives that can contribute to argyria (turning blue). Mesosilver is the best I have found so far. Look at the testing on the website - type in Silver Colloid.

I have terrible sinus infections every year... I usually just beg for antibiotics because the pain is horrible, and I am a pilot and can't afford much time off. I went to the local health food store and was rummaging throught he shelves and came across this sinus remedy...it is a nasal inhalant of elemental silver and some other stuff. Used it per instructions every 15 minutes it didn't seem to work for about 6 hours, then over the next 2 days I got better and better. Doc explained that silver was a germicidal agent that kills the bad bacteria, while body does the rest... interesting and would recommend to anyone, I have horrible sinuses and this stuff worked faster than antibiotics about 2-3 days total then keep sniffing it for about 1.5 weeks.. stop to soon and it comes back

I bought a bottle of a well known nasal spray, poured all the medicine out, washed the bottle and refilled it with colloidal silver, 4 or 5 grains of salt, and a little water. To use lay on bed, lean head off side, squirt into one nostril, holding the other side of your nose inhale as much as you can. Then do the other side.

It will make your nose dry up and if you feel it burning, you know you had an infection and it is busy killing the germs.

Repeat as often as necessary.

You can take this to the office with you, use as if a regular nasal spray. It will still work. The laying off the bed it to get it into sinuses above your eyes.

I ve been using Colloidal Silver for a few days now and definitely had the "Stinging" in my right sinus cavity. After a day or so I also noticed my right ear also started to hurt. I'm assuming its just helping everything . My wife says I shouldn't sniff the Silver deeply into the nasal cavity. She thinks it'll cause an ear infection. Is there any truth to that? Seems like you should get it back there as far as possible right?

I have long used ACV for various cures. However, I have also used colloidal silver [which I make myself] or some may call it "ionic silver" in a nasal spay. Several applications of this remedy has always been effective for me in quelling sinus infection.
