Hi, I have just started using colloidal gold albeit another brand and a few days after starting using it I developed chronic diarrhoea. I am not sure if it is caused by the colloidal gold but was wondering if it is a possible side affect as it still hasn't ceased. Also I would really like to purchase your brand but it is very expensive here in Australia ($153AUD) thats with $45 shipping. Is there somewhere else I can purchase it that a bit cheaper?

You are right on, Katzie. They are both exceptional gifts to our health, but different, though the method here suggests a few drops of silver when making gold, as helps with the creation of the gold colloidal, this from the machine and system that I used here in German speaking countries, where they are very strict on these matters about truth in advertising and ingredients. Our gold is not red, this is the first time I have heard of such, though gold colloidal is extensively used here. One nice side effect was that I found my hair growing in twice as thick (ie many more strands) which, as I have baby fine hair, was a great side effect!

Colloidal Gold and Iodine Interactions
Posted by Eric J. (US) on 12/06/2022

Can you take Colloidal Gold and Lugol's Iodine together or will the iodine flush out the gold??

EC: 1. Interaction: There isn't substantial scientific research specifically addressing the interaction between colloidal gold and Lugol's iodine. Generally, iodine is known for its antiseptic properties and its role in thyroid function, while colloidal gold is used in alternative medicine for its purported anti-inflammatory and cognitive benefits.

2. Absorption: No clear evidence exists that iodine would "flush out" colloidal gold from the body. However, both substances may compete for absorption or interact in the digestive system.

3. Timing: To minimize potential interactions, taking these substances at different times of the day may be prudent. For example, you might take colloidal gold in the morning and Lugol's iodine later in the day.

How much gold should I use and how much water to make it. Thanks.

Be sure it's pure 100% gold. Most gold jewelry today has other metals used with it to make the jewelry stronger or less costly. Those other metals can be toxic.

Making Colloidal Gold Is easy... Put solid gold jewelry without stones with 2 cups of water. Boil water, until the volume is reduced to half. Take 1 tsp. of the resulting solution 2-3 times a day. After 2 weeks "gold" water strengthens the heart muscle, and improves memory. ~ German Folk Remedy

I have a colloidal silver maker and we love it, drink a lot. Wondering if it can be used for making colloidal gold?

Mood-Enhancer, Energy

I take one to one & a half tablespoons of colloidal gold every other day. The only reason I take it every other day & not daily is bc it seems to stay with me & I seem to still feel the effects of the gold. I also started feeling a little bit of an upset tummy if taken daily so I've found it works best if I consume every other day. I do find that my brain function & my energy levels have increased, which I am extremely happy for that. I also noticed that I feel less depressed now after I've been taking it for 4-5 weeks. I am super happy that I found out about this stuff. I am one month away from my 49th birthday & honestly I no longer feel like I am only a year away from being 50 years old, I feel more like I am 50 years young. Thanks for reading my experience.

Do you have the lab capability to test for nanoparticle size or do you send samples out to an outside lab?

EC: Hi Richard,

No, we would need what's called a scanning electron microscope to measure a nanoparticle, about a $200,000 piece of lab equipment. We would LOVE to own one but need to sell a tad bit more to afford it.

Our ruby red colloidal gold average diameter in nanometers is based on lab reports who make colloidal gold by chemical reduction, 10 to 20 nanometers. Per our colloidal gold consultant, the founder of the colloidal gold/colloidal silver forum (and where our CG and CS recipes come from) it is an effective size, and that chemical reduction produces a smaller size nanometer than electrolysis.

I've appreciated Earth Clinic for many years, as I have little faith in doctors. I just received colloidal gold and I'm very excited about it. What is the nanometer size of the gold?

EC: Thanks for ordering from us.

Our 20 ppm and 40 ppm colloidal gold is 10-20 nanometers.

Colloidal Gold Vs Monoatomic
Posted by Deirdre (Connecticut) on 03/16/2022

Hi Bonnie,

No, and here is a great post on the subject from

"The obvious answer is that they are very different. In a colloid, there is no requirement that the dispersed gold be in the form of isolated atoms. Colloidal gold is in the form of nanoparticles, each having many atoms of gold (see Note that gold is naturally monoatomic, and does not bind to itself chemically, unlike oxygen, which binds in pairs to achieve energetic stability."

Colloidal Gold Vs Monoatomic

Is Earth Clinic colloidal gold monoatomic? Ormus?

Thank you.

I've been taking 1-2 tablespoons of 20 PPM Colloidal Gold up to twice a day for the past two months. So has my 16 year old dog with cancer (who is doing incredibly well, but that's for another post). I have found it is most effective as a mood elevator. I am in an incredibly good mood all day long and things that might normally irritate me for a while hardly irritate me at all.

I have not, on the other hand, noticed any effect on my stiff and somewhat arthritic joints in some of my fingers, but then colloidal gold is noted for rheumatoid arthritis, which I don't have. I am also not taking the 30 mg dose that was tested in the study for RA, but far, far less.

I have now discovered that colloidal gold has even more potent mood-elevating results when taken internally with DMSO, so this is now my new daily recipe. I put raw honey in it to mitigate the clam/garlic breath from the DMSO (really does help).

Here is my recipe:

  • In a mug, add 1/4 cup of warm filtered water -- needs to be warm enough to dissolve the honey, but not too hot.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of raw honey and stir until dissolved.
  • 1 tablespoon of 99.999 Pharmaceutical Grade DMSO.
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Colloidal Gold.

Taken on an empty stomach in the afternoon. Colloidal Gold can be taken on an empty stomach in the morning, but I haven't experimented with DMSO, so I am doing this combo in the afternoon instead.

Important Note! If this is your first time taking DMSO internally, start with a much smaller amount and work your way up. I had never taken DMSO internally before and was quite nervous about it and started with one drop a couple of weeks ago! Now 1 tablespoon down the hatch with no problems.

I hope others who take DMSO internally will try a DMSO/Gold combination and report back.

Shipping Colloidal Gold in the Winter
Posted by Deirdre (Earth Clinic) on 01/21/2022

Hi Norma,

Great question! Each bottle is bubble-wrapped and placed inside a thick cardboard box. Freezing has only been an issue when people left it outside in their mailbox too long and the bottle not only froze but broke too. Happened to just two so far since December - 1 in Chicago and 1 in Canada... both with temps in the 10-20F range. It was left outside too long.

You can sign up for text and/or email for a delivery notification with USPS or UPS after the label is in the system. Shopify (which we use for e-commerce) also sends out an email once it's been delivered, so that's been helpful as well.

How is your Colloidal Gold shipped in winter, as it should not be frozen?

Anxiety, Depression
Posted by Katzie (Calgary) on 09/05/2021

Colloidal Gold is supposed to primarily be used for mental health issues (anxiety, depression, etc). In fact, I've never heard it used in place of silver at all. It's completely different.

Yeah! Got my colloidal gold!

No, I STILL can't leap tall buildings in a single bound but I have already had a strange experience.

I hadn't eaten lunch yet, so I put a couple of drops under the tongue. A few minutes later, as with the silver, I got super sleepy. Not groggy, like with the sedative-like effect, just sleepy.

I adjusted the curtains in case it was dark when I woke up from my "nap", checked the clock - 3:47 - and laid down.

I awoke with a bit of a start, trying to remember what I'd been thinking or dreaming about as it was a really good design idea. I wasn't sure which had happened - I.e. whether I'd been thinking or dreaming. But, I couldn't remember the idea and, even though I was extremely comfortable, I was also fully awake so I got up, went to look at the clock, thinking I'd slept a couple hours but it SAID 3:49. TWO minutes.

When I had the covid, I'd gone to bed and slept 3 days so I checked the day and date, just to be sure and, sure enough, though it didn't seem possible, I'd only been in bed 2 minutes.

It was the darnedest thing. Otherwise, I'm just fully awake, "refreshed" and that's about it. I put a couple of drops in my palm and sprayed in some silver and splatted it on my face which feels super soft, just a minute or so later so...that's interesting...

Anyway, I'm going to do a full rinse, swish and gargle in the morning and see what happens.
