Hi there, Just wanted to make silver allergy sufferers aware to be cautious with the colloidal silver remedy. Silly me didn't make a connection between sterling silver and colloidal silver until after I had used this remedy for an ear infection. My ears blew up like cauliflower ears. It took me til about my late teens, early 20s to realize I had an allergy to silver after my mum gave me her old watch. My wrist got itchy and started to form blisters. That's when it finally clicked that all those nights out during my teens when I wore some nice dangley earrings, why my ears would always become inflamed, itchy and weepy. I was allergic and didn't even realize.

Maybe a skin test would be a good recommendation for people before trying colloidal silver. Wear some silver jewellery for a couple of days and check for a reaction.

Cheers to everyone. Love this website. It is my favourite go to website for natural remedies coz everyone's input gives ya a well rounded perspective of the effectiveness of certain remedies and how they've helped as well as adversely affected different people.

Happy New Year To Everyone

I have been trying to get some reliable information about CS and didn't check out the specific two products you listed and there are quite a few overpriced versions of the same or even worse products out there. One of the 'apples-to-apples' things to check and a very important thing to check for any CS intended for ingesting is the ppm. If the ppm are not 200 or greater (and so far it appears you actually want 200-500 ppm) then there are some risks and/or limitations to how much the body can actually use. You want it to be able to be absorbed, but not so small or something large that it either ends up being flushed out without getting into the bloodstream or stuck in the kidneys & liver as impassable waste over time. Again, I am just a consumer (and biotech major) wholeheartedly in favor of natural medicine and the price trap is absolutely valid, but I thought I should also chime in about the ppm info that has been popping up over and over in the few actual scholarly articles I have seen as they make sense. I wish I had the links on me, but search anything related to ingestion of CS for systemic healing benefits and look for keywords that include the size of the red blood cells...those were where the 200-500 ppm figures kept coming up. :)

Also...if using topically, be aware that it will heal skin lesions beautifully, but I have first hand experience with the sun reactions that will leave darkness and discoloration where the CS is used. LOL...so I have an amazingly beautiful surface that would almost certainly have been a raised scar, but I didn't know about the sun and even with my daily sunscreen, the specific spot that I used to treat is pretty severely discolored. I had a second spot that I covered with a bandaid b'c the wound was worse and that spot looks like more perfect skin than it was before the wound. (The wounds were a bug bite of unknown origin, but possibly spider or tick bites and were pretty scary looking...) Sorry so long...

I used CS in a nasal rinse for a sinus infection and have now lost my taste and smell senses. Anyone else? Any recommendations? As a chef and business owner it is very important to taste and smell! HELP!

I have a terrible flu right now, so I thought I'd go to the health food store and get some Colloidal silver. 15 minutes after taken it, I get this BAD BAD headache. I took it this morning - bad headache. I took it again a half an hour ago - bad headache again. I am going to take it back for a refund. It is costly, but I do not think it helps at all.

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.

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.

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.

First I took hydrogen peroxide for 3 weeks, for what seemed like flu, and candida, and I have hypothothyroidism and I get very cold on public transport, the windows being wide open in all weathers , and I also live in a draughty and cold house, the hydrogen peroxide didnt seem to be working fast enough, or the cider vinegar or the cayenne - so I got some collidal silver, as I suffered from these conditions for way too long now, and take 1 teaspoon of colloidal silver twice a day, as I catch cold easily, probably due to faulty amalgums.

I did not expect to experience very bad cold sweats, and nausea, this coldness and sweat will not go away, and is very debilitating resulting in many changes of clothes, also aching gums, and tiredness, is this a continuing herxeimer effect, or am I not doing something right? I have a healthy diet with lots of fruit and veg, and have lately started taking live yogurt, and also lemon juice.
