I have used colloidal silver for many issues. Recently, I was feeling sick when a friend I'd spent the evening with three days before told me he realized he had the flu the morning after we went to dinner (he got tested). Since it had been three days, I assumed I had his flu, but I didn't get tested--I knew I had something. I used 20 PPM colloidal silver to get rid of all symptoms. Since they had just begun, it didn't take that long, but I can't remember the exact details. This is my protocol after I have symptoms though: 1/4 cup of 20 PPM (more if it's a lower PPM--I keep a stock of a few different kinds) every half hour for as long as I have symptoms. And then every hour for an indefinite time. (I don't wake myself up to take it, though--if I'm asleep, then I don't follow this).

I was totally better the next day in this case. Starting early makes a big difference.

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.

Last year I kept contracting the flu and spent most of the winter in bed. This year it started to come back. I lived alone with no real friends in Reno so I read up and selected Colloidal Silver as the best bet. I went and picked up some high quality Colloidal Silver. Within a few hours the flu symptoms were gone. I tend to be minimal with medicine so I only used the silver when I felt bad. No flu yet this season.

I used a teaspoon several times a day of a top rated brand. I also could not afford to keep buying it so I bought 2 Canadian silver dollars and made my own machine. I am an electronics tech and did well in my college chemistry so it seemed obvious how to build a device that would yield a higher percentage of true colloidal over an ionic solution. You MUST use distilled water and shiny clean electrodes. I heated my water and drove off the dissolved gasses. I used a 30V square wave at about 50kHz to theoretically dislodge microscopic particals of silver into the solution. After about 4-6 hours the electrodes start showing some corrosion and have used that as my finish point. It has worked as well as the store bought solution at a fraction of the cost. I have been giving out bottles to people I'm starting to know and to date, none of them have gotten sick from the flu this year.

it is not good using silver coins since they have other metals in them, some are undesirable and could be toxic this could lead to Argyria or other more serious problems, always use 99.99% silver can get rods of this quality and only use distilled water, never use tap water, again other metels are found in tap water, be smart and be safe!

A friend gave me some colloidal silver for an eye infection that I had (pink eye). I applied a drop in the eye about every two hours, about four times that day, and the next day all symptoms were gone. A few months later I noticed that I was getting a stuffy nose. I bought a spray bottle of Colloidal silver from the doctor and used it (sniffed a spray) and the stuffy nose was gone. I have a history of sinus infections, but I have not had one in over four years now, because if I feel a cold or flu starting, I turn to my silver. I bought a colloidal silver(CS) generator and learned how to apply CS to different things.

I appreciate the knowledge to help myself with a product that is cheap and easy to make. And as regards the so called dangers of it, maybe we should look at the real dangers of using antibiotics and other medications. There are times that some medications are useful, so we must make knowledgeable decisions.
