Recently I was talking with a woman who had started on a regimen of colloidal silver for a particular reason and ran into a benefit not related to the original reason that she was taking colloidal silver for. She said that she had been having fairly severe pain in one knee that she had to take aspirin for everyday during her waking hours to take the edge off of the pain and sometimes when it would wake her during the night. After about three weeks of daily dosing, she said that she no longer needed to take aspirin for her knee pain. She said she is going to continue the colloidal silver for the original reason that she started using it, but the pain relief in her knee is now an unexpected bonus. I plan on contacting her later to see how her knee is doing over time.
I have seen anecdotal reports suggesting that colloidal silver may offer some benefit for arthritis, but have never really spent any time looking into it because borax seems to be fairly effective for many people with arthritis. However, since borax is not effective for everyone with arthritis I thought that it might be a good idea to see what the available literature had to offer on the subject. This anecdote made me decide to look and see if there are any studies that might suggest that colloidal silver may be active against any type of arthritis. With that thought in mind, the first thing I found was an abstract of a rat study that suggested there is potential.......well at least in rats that have been dosed with Freund's adjuvant to induce arthritis like symptoms. Here is a link to that abstract and an article link that tend to confirm each other:
The following article suggests that colloidal silver plays a role in inhibition of angiogenesis and angiogenesis is a factor in terms of arthritis, so this is a different angle by which colloidal silver might be useful in controlling arthritis.
This recent article partially discusses the anti inflammatory qualities of colloidal silver.
While this is hardly conclusive evidence, it is at least a couple of steps in the right direction.
So I talked with this woman again and here is what she told me. She had started on colloidal silver and annona muricata (AM) because she had been diagnosed with a cyst on one kidney and a "mass" on the other kidney which her doctor told her may or may not be cancerous. They would need to do further testing to determine if it was cancerous or not.
Apparently it is the colloidal silver that is helping her knee because she started with a loading dose for two weeks and then went down to a maintenance dose. When she went down to the maintenance dose, her knee started to hurt a little bit, so she went all the way back to the loading dose and shortly after, her knee stopped hurting again. She has been taking the same dose of AM everday since she started.
Last week she went back to the doctor so they could see if the cyst or the mass had grown. The doctor called her this past Tuesday and told her that the mass had shrunk substantially and was now the size of a very small stone and the cyst had also shrunk very significantly. In any case, she is elated with these results and said she plans to continue with her protocol for at least two more months. I think she has been on this protocol for about 8 weeks now. Her doctor told her they are just going to monitor her for the time being .
One other thing she mentioned to me was that she had recently found lumps on her breasts as well as under her breasts and she said all of the lumps have also diminished or disappeared. She seems pretty happy with her results so far.
14 Commercial Colloidal Silver and Ionic Silver Products And How They Compare
This was an interesting read that helps further clarify which products are what they say they are. I found product #12 (Meso Silver) and product #14 (Coated Silver) interesting for different reasons.
MesoSilver seems to proudly announce that their product is .65 nm sized particles at 20 ppm. Actually this article measured the particle size range at 10 to 50 nm, which might partially explain the amber color (dark iced tea color) instead of yellow color as would be expected for AgNPs in the 20 nm size. The actual ppm were measured at 24.7 ppm, so they are close on that point, but way off on particle size with some particles measuring as high as 50 nm.
Particle size is important for efficacy with 12~20 nm shown as an effective range with minimal toxicity to normal cells, but effective against various pathogens. Particles below 10 nm are significantly more toxic to pathogens, but to normal cells as well. Particle size above 20 nm are less effective against pathogens and particles at 30 to 50 nm are much less effective against pathogens. So to me, MesoSilver is a disappointment. I can kind of understand why their particle size is so far off because of the testing method that they used to determine the particle size. Studies of AgNPs use different methods to measure particle size.
Product #14 (Coated Silver) is interesting because for one, it is claimed to be 20,000 ppm and only requires 4 drops to make 8 ounces of 20 ppm AgNPs. The actual ppm was 19,200, so not too far off target and I would think that at this many ppm, the size of the drops could be very critical in determining how close you stay to the claimed ppm. Another interesting point about #14 is that the particle size range is 10 to 12 nm whereas the other colloidal silver products were over all larger. Now they use a proprietary coating to reach this very high ppm and unfortunately we have no clue what the release of the silver is like from this coating.
Overall, many manufacturers who claim their product is colloidal silver are actually selling colorless ionic silver and this article briefly explains the difference and effects.
Here is a link to the article if you are interested in checking out how these commercial products tested compared to the manufacturers claim.
All of these silver based products are available on Amazon according to the article.

I am taking a shot glass full of 20 ppm colloidal silver (true colloidal silver, not clear ionic silver). This is to kill candida and fungus in addition to herbs.I think it's amazing but I have a question for anyone who knows colloidal silver chemistry. The silver causes a brief stomach ache about 20 minutes after I digest it, when it hits my stomach. With food or without food. Any ideas why? Is this the candida being killed off in the gut? Nonetheless, I love it and will continue. Just curious about the stomach ache.
Colloidal silver helps my migraines too as well as my arthritis. It is the best antibiotic I never take pharmaceutical antibiotics. Skin problems, cuts, warts, fungus anything like that it works wonders.
I have not had the flu for over 45 years, not saying I have taken sliver that long of course but I have a natural immunity I guess, no colds either. Don't take flu shots either. Some hay fever in the summertime when the wheat is pollinating especially, the silver works for that too. So, with all the hype about the evils of silver I can testify it is very beneficial in a number of ways.
After much reading, there seems to be no real agreement or consistent information on how much colloidal silver can be ingested. I have been using it for ten years for illnesses only. I take 4 tablespoons a day for two weeks probably twice a year. I use a high quality nano silver. I worry that I have been taking it too long. I am interested in others' practices, dosages and experiences. How long have you been taking silver and what are your dosages?
Don't miss EC's new video on the most effective way to inhale colloidal silver and instructions on how to do it.
Appreciation and a giant THANK YOU to Art for his informative posts on the subject. We've been testing this ultrasonic humidifier delivery method for a few months now and it's very effective.
I was feeling really tired and cranky since yesterday. I thought I was just tired. On a whim I took a few teaspoons of colloidal silver in some water and within maybe half an hour felt much better. I vote CS a miracle supplement. :)
I suffered a perforated bowel last September, I think now, due to Round Up in the food supply ( it's widespread in conventional raised crops) , and have a temporary colostomy ( it's been 10 months now), I have an abdominal fistula draining right next to it, near the navel. The drainage has been down to 30 ml or so since the 5th month but has remained so sometimes putting out Frank blood. Getting the colostomy reversed depends on getting the fistula healed. I tried ionic silver and squeezed two droppersful into the fistula hole, and the drainage is much less. I'm very pleased. I'll do this twice a day and report back. Fistulas are famous for being hard to heal. (They are a tunnel through the bowel area.)
Hello, This is Fatih from Istanbul, Turkey. I've been dealing with ionised & colloidal silver water for 5 years. Recently, I've problems. I prefer generally just deionised water and Na2Co3 solution as electrolyte. Then I use pure C6H12O6 as reducing agent. But, The production I make in this way, produces bluish clouds (I guess it is Silver Oxide). Do you have any idea about this? If you may have some time to answer me, I'll be very very glad.
I was diagnosed with HPV in September 2017. I've had genital warts since then and they were hideous. I tried the Apple Cider vinegar, however it burned like hell and it seemed to just bring more warts. I stumbled across Colloidal Silver and decided to give it a try. This was the best decision I've ever made in my entire life!!! I soaked cotton pads and placed them over the warts every night for about a week (I left them on overnight). And within the first 3 days they were disappearing. It has been a month since I used the Colloidal Silver and I haven't seen an outbreak since then.
In 2016 my wrist joints hurt, I had a quarter sized cyst on my left wrist, and noticeable liver spots on the top of my hands. Other joints were also getting stiff. I was 54. I learned about how to make colloidal silver and studied the benefits. I make my own in concentrations of about 20 ppm tp 100 ppm. I decided to cleanse my body, consuming a gallon a week for a month. The results were quite remarkable.
The pain in my joints went away, the cyst went away, and the liver spots are gone.
I use it in nasal spray form and humidifier during flu season, and do a 1 gallon cleanse once a year now (a gallon in one week). I havent been sick at all, walk over 30 miles a week, eat right, take nascent iodine, and my physical this year was excellent with normal bloodwork and BP. My wife also takes it when she feels something coming on and it helps tremendously. Have also used it on scrapes and cuts with no issues. I keep 6 gallons in stock in dark jugs. This is our go to medication. And it wont turn me blue.
Any advice for after nebulizing colloidal silver and breaking out in extreme itching? I used 2-1/2 dropper's full with a little bit of distilled water.
I have been taking c/s since 1998. I had shingles on my face headed to the eye and c/s completely eliminated it BUT you must take it internally for 6 months for it to be effective. Take only 1 tablespoon full a day swallow for gut under tongue or on top of the tongue for the blood.
I bought Colloid Silver (Results RNA ACS 200) via Amazon...it cured a toothache and gingivitis and healed a friends cut overnight which amazed her and in addition cured an old recurrent eyelash infection...a few days a go I had spot and sprayed it and there was not even an inflammation the morning after-Maybe other brands work as well or better and I am not a salesman...this stuff works...I don't have the time to set up homemade machinery to make it and so can only vouch for this brand.
Hi, I saw on one of your YouTube videos that you recommend buying the SilverTron Elite Generator to make colloidal silver at home. I tried going to their website to purchase one but it said that their website is under construction. Do you know where else I can buy one or do you recommend another generator that I could buy to make colloidal silver at home? I appreciate your help and everything I have learned from watching your YouTube videos. Andrea
