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.

Candida and Fungus

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.

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.


HPV - Genital Warts

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.

I thought it was interesting from way back on the benefits of CS. I have been researching for months now on CS as I've never heard of it until joining EC. So, thank you to everyone!

I have had 3 family members killed by the deadly hospital cv19 protocol. All 3 went to ER for O2 support and signed papers to be admitted thru scare tactics by pharma rats provided "the lines" to be used by CDC guidelines to the docs. It is EUA euthanasia IMO. Kidnap and kill with 30+ bags of unproven drugs to include overtreatment of O2 which we know causes brain swelling, blood clots to the brain and blown lungs. They essentially are drowning the patient in poison inside the body and call it death from cv19 complications/cv pneumonia. Criminal and somehow still legal after more than 2 yrs with nothing changing with inhospital protocols, same playbook.

I could go on and on.

The hospital administrator(s) and board members are the ones who accept the protocol and flow down to everyone else. Then docs have carte blanche on whether you live or die. Just because you have Power of Attorney they do not have to honor that even under EUA. Just WOW.

I have only found one documented case of someone losing their life to cv that did not go to the hospital. All points to hospitals using deadly protocols killing people not cv19.

Profit over patients to the tune of up to $500,000 per cv19 death. Sickest thing I've ever heard of from our own gov't and hospitals we are supposed to trust with "saving" our lives.

In reply to Nattakit (Bangkok, Thailand),

Yes, that is the dosage she told me she used as her loading dose. She said it was based on previous dosing studies that she had read in relation to her estimated blood content which she said for her is over 6 litres of blood. Her maintenance dose was significantly less. That loading dose equates to approximately 19 mg of silver per day. The amount of silver per day is important and sometimes when you talk in terms of parts per million it can get confusing because 1 litre of 20 ppm CS is equal to 20 mg of silver, but 500ml of 40 ppm is also equivalent to 20 mg as is 250 ml of 80 ppm. It seems simpler to me to say how much silver per day total as opposed to all of the potential ppm doses.

I've never seen a commercial colloidal silver manufacturer recommend that high of a dose and I doubt any of them ever would because for one thing, they would probably have to explain to the FDA why. That type of a dose is likely to be used to actively try and treat a health issue and not as a preventative, in my opinion and CS manufacturers can not say that CS treats any nealth issue period.......pretty much like supplement manufacturers who can not make health claims. Most supplements will have a dosing schedule that recommends one or two capsules a day, but many alternative sites will recommend much higher dosing to try an obtain a specific health effect.

An average sized adult in the 150 to 180 pound range will have a blood content of approximately 1.2 to 1.5 gallons or 4.5 to 5.7 litres. Larger people will have a larger blood content and smaller people will have less and the blood content can vary between a man and a woman of equal weight.

People who dose as this woman has are likely trying to reach a specific blood level of CS that has shown positive effects in the available studies. Unfortunatelly there are not any studies that I am aware of that specifically say that if you have exactly 5 litres of blood and you take X amount of 20 ppm CS you will achieve a blood level of Y, so this leaves consumers to try and figure it out for themselves based on the currently available studies. I asked this woman if she noticed any type of bad side effects from this dose and she told me no. She said the side effects she noticed were the positive ones like her knee pain reduction and the reduction of the lumps in her breasts.

If I get a chance to talk to her down the road, I will be very interested in finding out how it is or isn't working out for her, but for now she feels it is working well.

In reply to Jeanette (Asheville),

I can't say what a loading dose should be, but I can tell you what this woman told me she used. One quart of 20 ppm colloidal silver per day and then she went down to a maintenance dose. She said she will have to rethink her maintenance dose because she feels it may be too low for her. She mentioned that she was thinking that she may continue her regimen for at least two more months, but she said it will depend on what her doctor tells her at her next visit.

Hopefully I will be able to talk to her again so I can find out how it all works for her.

Very interesting article on colloidal silver, Betty, especially at that time(2008).

I don't agree with all that they say and current studies tend to disagree with some of the information also, but overall, very progressive CS article for 2008.

I once saw CS keep a person with HIV healthy for two years until they were able to get insurance to cover their meds. It clearly destroys SARS CoV-2. If doctors would nebulize their Covid-19 patients in the hospital with Covid Pneumonia, I think they would see much better outcomes in those patients. Oral CS only goes where the blood goes so nebulizing for the lungs is the only way it will help.

CS has tons of potential, but serious human studies are lacking and that leaves us to our own devices to figure out the best ways to utilize it.

Chewed up 2 aspirin about 10 minutes after rinsing, swishing, gargling and swallowing the 20ppm.

I don't know if it released stored sedatives from an old surgery or some weird virus of some sort but it nearly knocked me plum out.

I dozed off at my desk and when I woke up, I actually stumbled when I got up to go lie down for a nap. I felt exactly as if I'd been sedated. It really knocked me for a loop so it's definitely not something you want to do and then get in your car and drive somewhere or go to work. It wasn't a "high" but just a full-on sedative effect. Muscle relaxant, sleepy - that sort of thing. If the aspirin is releasing sedatives the body had locked away, rather than a virus, that would be very interesting and make the silver/aspirin method a good cleanse for toxins if one did it before going to bed but, since nobody takes aspirin anymore, I'm going to say that "taking it slow" might be the best way to go so as not to overload the liver. I'm a little surprised there's been no rash...but I've never had liver issues so...I don't know.

Tomorrow, I'm going to skip the aspirin, then do the same the day after and note any differences there might be - a lesser effect, no effect or another significant effect - as, today, I would call it a pretty significant dose of whatever it is/was. I've had two surgeries, about 15-20 years apart with the last being about 15 years ago so...other than the gas you get at the dentist, that's probably the worst of whatever might be released but we'll see what happens.

Strange that DMSO has never done whatever this is doing...I'm beginning to think that the rampaging cancer, heart issues and other illnesses might be because people stopped using aspirin...

If the colloidal silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) you are using are not capped there will be a reaction in the stomach as soon as the particles run into hydrochloric acid and sodium chloride. The AgNPs will break down quickly if they are not capped and the particles will agglomerate and fall out of suspension and become useless. This reaction could be one potential explanation for what you are feeling.

When you look at studies for AgNPs, you will notice that almost all studies use some type of capping agent to protect the AgNPs from destruction in the stomach and to help prevent agglomeration.

When I make AgNPs I use gelatin as the capping agent which is very effective at not just protecting AgNPs from agglomeration, but also improving the effectiveness of the AgNPs as shown in this study:

Notice that these gelatin capped AgNPs showed superior stability and antibacterial ability than uncapped AgNPs against Staphylococcus Aureus.

If you do not know if your AgNPs are capped or not, you can make a small mixture of hydrochloric acid and table salt and then add some of this mix to a small amount (1 oz.) of AgNPs. If the addition of the acid/salt mix causes the AgNPs to turn color and become cloudy, they are not capped.


Joint Pain, Cyst, Liver Spots

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.

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. :)

Best Reducing Agent for CS
Posted by Art (California) on 06/19/2022 1506 posts

Tammy O, I use the light/colorless Karo Syrup as my reducing agent. I dilute it 50% with vodka instead of distilled water because water and Karo can form some type of mold in a month or less and I do not want to risk contaminating my batches. Pure Karo does not form mold and substituting vodka for distilled water in the Karo also will not develop mold. The vodka or water is used to thin the Karo Syrup so it is easy to measure out drops of the reducing agent to make AgNPs from Ag+.

Hello Deanna,

This link is to a true colloidal silver AgNPs that are a very high concentration (> 19,000 ppm) that takes only drops that can be diluted down to 20 ppm. In a study which I previously posted on EC, this product when analyzed had a very narrow particle size spread of just 2 nm that was right at the best part of the optimal range of particles for the least amount of damage to normal human cells while being a very effective pathogen neutralizer. Here is a link to the study :

Here is a link to the specific product which showed high quality standards along with almost ideal particle size:

This is true colloidal silver AgNPs, not colorless ionic silver and is a very dark brown in color because of the ultra high concentration of silver nanoparticles. It is expensive, but when compared to a MesoSilver Carboy (5-gallons) that is supposedly heavily discounted, the coated silver product is significantly less expensive.

Thanks to Madelyn of Idaho for sparking the idea but, as some have reported greater efficacy with regard to colloidal silver when they started to swish it in their mouth for a minute or two before swallowing, I just tried it and not only does my mouth feel fresh but it actually leaves that "feeling" of the after effects of mint mouthwash. Not the flavor but that...sort of..."coolness" that mint leaves behind. It's perfect! I can even feel that minty coolness in my nasal passages!

I also read reports of people swishing and then, keeping it in their mouth and breathing deeply over it for bronchial infections.

Swish, breathe, gargle, swallow and you're good to go!! And, taken in that context, the taste of it sort of makes sense to the brain so you can think, "tastes like mouthwash" and get no argument from the bod. VERY interesting!! Awesome, even, I would say! Safe for children and probably an equally effective or almost as effective, shot to their immunity whether they swallow it or spit it out! It even gives you that "coolness" you get with mint when you drink water after? If you know what I mean...

Been gargling, swishing and nasal spraying everyday and no sign of anything, anywhere. Glad to have it out of my head, that's for sure. I was afraid to tackle it for fear it would drop down into the chest, but it didn't.

I've upped my plan to 20ppm, for a "viral cleanse". Haven't experienced much aside from a little bit of itchiness...can't really call it a rash just...itchy. But that's gone now idea what it was.

Oh! PLUS, a couple of age spots are sort of peeling off - not sure what that's about...I suppose they could be viral...don't know, never really cared about them so...I guess I might see if I can get rid of them.

ALSO, I got a tiny little cool mist ultrasonic that's supposed to be for the face which is WAY cool! SUPER handy, tiny, pocket-sized and rechargeable, as opposed to the full size ultrasonic. Super fine mist - ran some copper water through it, followed by colloidal silver before I inhaled any but since I make my own it's pretty much like water 'round here, LOL!

Haven't made any colloidal copper yet - did an inspection but I don't have enough gray hairs to see about that...not sure what I was playing with that would have gotten rid of those...I don't really pay much attention to that sort of stuff. I'll use it on my face and see what happens, if I can remember to pay attention.

I'm also going to make a sort of mineral tonic with silver, copper and zinc. I'm going to pass on the gold, I think, but I might see something from the zinc, unless I'm getting plenty through the diet. I REALLY want to try it on the nanny plants, see if it does anything there...

WAY cool!

PS - nanny plants are just plants potted on top of sticks, green garden clippings and other compostables with potting mix on top. Planted and placed on the ground to populate them with worms and start the living compost and then moved around for "visits" to other plants in the ground and watered to drain their compost tea in the soil. If you make some, I use sticks off a mulberry that sheds them quite a bit, green garden clippings (mostly boxwood) and maple leaves. Plant some sun-loving ones and some shade-loving ones and you can "nanny" any plant anywhere! Just don't forget to give them a little tea every once in a while.

Sedum fills a pot nicely and doesn't seem to mind traveling or visiting other plants since the plants in the ground can't steal all of the resources because they take their own with them, as long as you don't forget to give them some love too. Any of the sedums - actually, just about any plant - can take a few days of shade so you can rotate them in and out of it.

You don't want to just leave them somewhere for a whole season as some ground plants will creep into the pot to get at the compost itself and if your compost is nearly done and you haven't fed it any scraps, the nanny itself will shoot roots into the ground, as well. You want them to love their gypsy lifestyle.

It seems the colloidal silver is still digging stuff out and the reason I say that is because I popped a dropper of cayenne extract under the tongue, just because I picked it up when I was dusting the shelf where it sits, and I felt it shoot down the left side from under the jaw to a mole on my neck and a minute or so later, I could feel it burning inside the left side of my nose. VERY interesting.

I have NO idea what that's about as I often pop a dropper of cayenne under the tongue "just because" and have never had that experience nor anything like it before and I haven't been doing that because I've been playing with the colloidal silver on its own.

I've seen several reports from people who realized after using colloidal silver for some weeks or even months that they notice that something they hadn't given any thought has gone or something that used to happen doesn't happen anymore or whatever so...

Best Brands of Colloidal Silver

THE best colloidal silver, by far, is colloidal silver you make yourself and the reason for that is because your greatest risk in purchasing pre-made silver is the possibility of there being no silver in it or of it containing "special" additives, for whatever reason a seller might claim to make theirs seem "better". You don't want either.

Man has been using and saving his own life with some of the gunkiest, nastiest and even intentionally contaminated homemade colloidal silver, SUCCESSFULLY, for decades. That we know. What we DON'T know is what is in the bottles of colloidal silver we purchase. Even a good brand, when shipped by someone other than the maker, could contain just about anything or even nothing but water.

Making your own is worth it for many reasons and there are many ways to do it or you don't even have to make colloidal silver at all. You could probably simply suck on a fine silver spoon or pendant for a few minutes everyday as silver is unique in that it sheds ions into moisture, by nature.

I use a lot of supplements, herbs and thoughts to try to steer my ship back toward life abundantly. It's been a journey. Recently , I have studied comfrey. Here a few things I have read. When it goes in the compost pile, it speeds up the composting. When you make a tea fertilzer out of it the plants flourish. When you put it on a wound , it can heal the wound at insane rates. When you drink the tea it begins working on every area there was a wound inside the body. Women used it in sitz baths to speed recovery after childbirth. It supposedly heals leaky gut. A poultice on a broken bone heals it rapidly(nicknamed knit bone). Before they villified it with fake studies, it was used in green drinks and salads for hundreds of years and was a friend to man. You can buy roots to grow, dried leaves by the pound, tinctures, creams, and I have used a lot of it. I plan to use a lot more. I give most things a year before I try some new things. I hope to encourage others to get past the scare tactics and apply some old wisdom to recover their lives. Blessings, Charity

Hi Art, this is very interesting and exciting feedback. thank you for sharing it. Can you tell me what a loading dose would be? It sounds like people can safely take colloidal silver daily without repercussions? I take it every so often for immune support (when I am fighting a virus mostly), but it sounds like it might be a good daily supplement to help my painful knees among other things.

Hi Mario,

I'm sorry for the delay in this reply, but I just now saw your post.

This is what she told me she used:

Anonna Muricata which is also known as Graviola, Soursop and Guanabana among many other names. This is the product she told me she used :

She said she used the maximum dose on the label which is 2 capsules 4 times per day for a total of 8 capsules per day.

The other thing she used was colloidal silver at 20 parts per million. She used a quart a day as her loading dose and then went down to a maintenance dose of 250 ml or a cup of colloidal silver, but then increased her maintenance dose up to 500 ml. or 16 ounces. I don't know her weight, but if I were to guess, I would say over 300 lbs. I suspect this is why the 250 ml maintenance dose was not enough for her, but might be enough for people weighing less. Unless you are making your own colloidal silver, these doses are expensive as shown here:

My father in law was also killed the same way. Age 65. He went into the hospital for oxygen. He was very sick with COVID but in otherwise good health. He called everyone from the hospital after he received oxygen and said he was feeling better. The next thing we know he's put onto the hospital's COVID treatment conveyor belt- meds, induced coma /paralysis drugs, ventilator. After 30 days they pressured the family to pull the plug. He died right away after that.

Hi Tammy,

Great question! I have used both and they seemed about the same. However, now I use 1/2 teaspoon of Maltodextrin per liter as my reducing agent and can highly recommend it instead as corn syrup can go bad unless you preserve it with vodka in the solution.

Perhaps Art can chime in with which corn syrup he has used over the past 20 years!

Hi Cindy –

In case you aren't massaging your sinuses (you probably are!), I'm putting a link to a very simple and effective massage.

Sinus Self-Massage for Instant Drainage & Pressure Relief | Dr. Mandell

I do this before using a nasal syringe (like a neti pot, only better) and find that more gunk comes out if I massage the area first for a few minutes.

Squip Nasal Rinsing System (I use my own saline mixture)

This might help others who have sinus problems or are dealing with sinus congestion due to the wildfire smoke (our air quality has been “hazardous” for the past week or so with no relief in sight).

As an aside, I just started using colloidal silver and I've ordered a basic silver generator, nothing fancy. I spray it everywhere full strength (10 ppm). Also, I use it in my humidifier (50% distilled water, 50% colloidal silver).

I'm stocking up on vitamins before they become scarce - the basics: Vitamin C, Vitamin D, B Vitamins, Magnesium, NAC, Zinc, etc.).

As Orson Welles said (old-time radio):

Good luck!

I neglected to suggest that you not "nanny" in-ground plants too much. If they are landscape plants, you want them to shoot roots and explore their underground environment to find their own food and moisture sources to establish themselves. There won't be much activity in the top growth while they're doing that but if you're patient, once they're comfortable, top-growth will explode and they'll be extra hardy and immune to just about anything that comes their way.

You can also use nanny plants to feed and provide afternoon shade for tender seedlings.

Also, if they're not to sit on mulch - I.e. if they're going to be on the grass or something - you want to fashion them some feet to get them up off the ground.

If it's hot and dry where you are, you can set them in a plant saucer and put drain holes in the pot, just above the rim of the saucer to conserve water. The nannies will shoot roots down to the water if they need to but they won't drown as it will be in the lower part, where the wood and air gaps are. Then you can just tip it to water the nannied plants. Unless, of course, the composting is done and it's all soil. In which case, the plant will be much lower in the pot as the air gaps collapse so you can remove it, put a new layer of sticks and greens in the bottom, and put it back in there. And stick some sticks down into the soil from the top to restart the "living" aspect of the compost up in the top soil.

And remember - "done" compost is "dead" compost. Once everything's been broken down, the microbes and worms leave in search of "greener pastures" and they're the life and life-giving properties of compost. You want to keep them interested, fed, watered and satisfied. And, of course, you don't have to plant anything in your nanny pots if you don't want to. You can just fill them with sticks on the bottom covered with dried leaves and green garden waste and pop a layer of soil on top. You can put a couple of dried leaves down and park any starters you might have in little pots on it. That will help keep it from drying out plus feed the starters. And if it's early or there's a late frost, you can stick some sticks into the soil and cover the whole thing with a trash bag to protect your seedlings from frost. If you've had warm days and have populated your pot with worms and microbes by setting it on the ground for a few days, the warmth from their industry will keep your seedlings - and the worms - nice and toasty.

They're basically tiny little, portable, raised garden beds, heat pads and compost teapots.

Best Brands of Colloidal Silver
Posted by Art (California ) on 09/08/2021 1506 posts

This study is very useful for quickly showing which products are really true colloidal silver and which are just ionic silver claiming to be colloidal silver. As expected, the ionic silver products contain no silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). In studies, AgNPs have shown themselves to be more effective than ionic silver which is the reason that AgNPs are used in most colloidal silver studies where ionic silver is generally used for comparison purposes to AgNPs to help illustrate the effectiveness of AgNPs.

Overall, the last product listed, I found to be very impressive in its characteristics and suggests that it is manufactured using very high quality equipment in order to reach these characteristics which I have not previously seen in studies. The uniformity of particle size at 10~12 nm is very impressive and is right at the the most effective part of what is considered to be the most effective range for AgNPs of 12~20 nm, while the parts per million true reading of 19,200 ppm is astonishing to me. This is the highest concentration I have ever seen and is quite impressive requiring only drops of the product to be diluted to large quantities of 10 or 20 ppm solutions! This is the only product in the group that impressed me! The others simply pale by comparison in this group. It isn't cheap, but for such a high quality product, I would not expect it to be.

Hello Cindy,

While it is nice to make your own CS at home, the quality and extremely narrow and very specific particle size range of this particular AgNP product (10 - 12 nm) is not reproducible at home. It can only be made with the highest quality equipment. This is a next level product when it comes to true AgNPs and it is capped in such a way that it can prevent agglomeration at 19,200 ppm. It is not possible to make this quality of AgNPs with any home generator device.

For someone who is looking to treat a specific health condition, it is clearly the best retail product I have seen or heard of and is definitely worth consideration when you need to know that you are using the best available product for a specific disease.

This is a greater quality AgNP product than used in most studies.

I have no interest in the maker of this true colloidal silver.

For the sake of comparison in terms of cost, a 5 gallon carboy of 20 ppm from MesoSilver costs about $700 plus tax.

The product described in the study costs $550 for 30 ml which is roughly one ounce, but it will make over 7 gallons of 20 ppm AgNPs when diluted properly. So this product is actually a much better price than the MesoSilver 5 gallon carboy which is supposed to be discounted compared to their smaller bottles.

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

The original designer of the Silvertron has stopped manufacturing, due to personal issues. Apparently, he is in talks with another member of the, who may -or not- take over the device's production. As to what to buy...? I recommend looking there for any recommendations.

Topical Application of Colloidal Silver for Herpes

I used a $30 bottle of colloidal silver from my local pharmacy with great success. I caught herpes from my first partner and it was unfortunately recurrent plus it began to worsen over the past five years. I am amazed at how effective this is. After all that money wasted on useless medication and stress over the condition, all it took was a month of topical application and I haven't had a symptom since. I highly recommend!

I just want to say that supplementing, once per day, with 1 or 2 tsp of 5 or 10ppm colloidal silver - WHEN YOU'RE WELL - should not only have healthy effects but almost certainly stop many infections before they can get started and, if not, will keep them in check so you can add more doses to kill them off rather than end up chasing them around the body, as I was doing. Apparently, it takes approximately a month of supplementing to get it up to "guard dog" levels.

Colloidal Silver Mouthwash

Colloidal silver mouth rinse/wash works great. there is a difference between my first batch which is 14ppm and my second, which is 10ppm - regarding taste. The 10ppm is more like water - or, at least, less like mouthwash.

Got an old style nasal spray bottle (mist right side up and drops or stream upside down) and put drops in my ears and misted my sinuses BECAUSE I suspect Covid barricaded itself in there. Misted 3 times per side, even though it seems to be concentrated in the left side BUT, during the "attack of the subwoofer" last Thursday, even though I felt it mostly in the left side without the boom boom of the low frequency sound, WITH it a just barely detectable pressure on the right side sort of spread outward to my right ear.

I've never had sinus or bronchial issues but I could feel that there was something in my sinuses, after Covid from spring 2020. Just a sort of "pressure". Not painful or anything, just...there.

I hesitated to turn it loose because I couldn't decide how to address it but, of course, now, with colloidal silver, it's a no-brainer.

So, I have released the Kraken!! 3 mists, both sides, bent my head down and turned it both ways at which point I could feel the pressure in the sinus cavity - mostly on the left, but some on the right as well.

Okay, so I slept through the first bout of Covid. 3 days. This time, I swished and swallowed before I went to bed, night before last, and, yesterday I slept twice. Once for 7 hours and again for 6. Then last night, slept for 6. Got up, swished and swallowed, fiddle farting around drinking coffee and stuff and suddenly, a sore throat on the left side. Post nasal drip, on the left side and a cough originating from the left side. Which is all sort of weird, really, but interesting.

Just gargled again and the sore throat is gone but I can still feel it. Just like after Covid - above the back of my throat but below the nasal passages. Right where I can't blow my nose or cough it loose from the throat.

Nasal sprayed, head forward, turning back and forth.

Throat's sort of sort of feels like they're going berserk, trying to get away or something. Put some drops in right ear - kind of bubbly with muffled popping, like distant combat sounds. Throat sort of tingly. Feels soda effervescence or something.

I have a cool mist humidifier, just in case.

The "above the back of the throat" stuff has dropped BELOW the back of the throat so, good thing I have the ultrasonic humidifier - I might need it, though I smoke which, apparently, blocks passage through the receptors in the lungs with niacin.

My right ear is...sort of...plugged.

And, now, it's sort of plugged and itchy.

Cough is coming from lower -

Inhaled from the nasal sprayer mist, Bob Munro-style.

Warming up a bit - like a hot flash.

Hot flash gone. All seems normal @ 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Sinuses feel "light" aside from a tiny bit of pressure in a lower pocket on the right side.

Nasal spray again - 3 squirts in the right with definite pressure at various positions and in the ear and sort of in the muscles of the jaw on the side...which is...interesting due to the extreme muscle weakness I experienced after the first bout with it and extending out as it worsened for several months. Very interesting indeed. A virus in the muscles? That's just evil.

Right ear popping when I swallow.

A little pressure up behind and above the eyes with some itching at the hairline.

This is really ticking me off. So much so that, contrary to my fundamental nature, I'm thinking a China-sized parking lot would not be a bad idea. With everyone in the whole world who thinks such things as bio-weapons are a good idea as speed bumps.

I refuse to believe one virus can do all of this AND effect one's mental processes so I'm going to stop here and philosophically gather my thoughts.

Colloidal Silver Mouthwash
Posted by Cindy (Illinois, USA) on 08/20/2021 347 posts

It's been 6 hours since I rinsed, swished, gargled, swallowed and, 10 minutes later, dissolved, chewed up and sort of swished 2 aspirin. No sedative effect but a niacin-like flush all the way around atop my shoulders and high on the chest and back. And a slight fever - currently 99.8.

So - no sleepy/grogginess, no stumbling around as if sedated, a little red, a little itchy and a little bit warm but still no rash.

I'm going to do it again this afternoon - see what happens.

Nothing happening on the colloidal silver front. I'm going to try colloidal gold, see what happens, and make some colloidal copper spray to use for moisturizing. I don't use moisturizer much as I don't need it much. Silver helps a little but I hear copper's "super", so...we'll see. I don't like lotion. Some smell awesome and feels good on the skin but...I just don't like it's base. And it seems like once you have to use some, you have to keep using it and I don't like that. The silver doesn't do that but I want to try the copper - see what all of the oohs and ahhhs are about.

Been reading up on gold so will definitely be trying that as I'm just generally happy, anyway, so I'll see if it has any of that sort of effect. I also hear that it eliminates cravings and I definitely have some of THOSE.

I read one comment that it would be appreciated by smokers, golfers and anybody that has ever thought that "people suck", LOL! I suppose the "golfer" reference might be about hand-to-eye coordination and possibly those annoying, "yippy" mind loops one hears about wreaking havoc on one's putting but I don't play, myself, so I'll have to see if I can get the SIL to try it and see what he thinks...

Candida and Fungus
Posted by Jessi J (Appleton WI ) on 06/29/2021

I know this is an old post but in case others are viewing this….

Yes you're right with Candida die off. It could also be other pathogens dying off as your gut heals. This is totally normal with any natural remedy as it's working. There's a brief moment of toxins being released as the Candida dies off, it can hold 80 different toxins within itself. Your body will work to clear those toxins and you'll feel better once that next step happens. Unless it's a severe stomach pain issue, keep going.

Andrea, Unfortunately, I do not have another recommendation for another retail silver generator. I knew the day would come when the builder of my generator would no longer be able to make it so I bought two to have one as a backup. I am completely spoiled by the Silvertron unit when compared to any other unit under $500. This unit is actually a mini computer which makes it very accurate and very adjustable. When I bought it, I looked at every unit I could find that was under $500 and there was nothing that even came close in terms of build quality, accuracy, product support and adjustability. I think it was around $350 and other units that were in that general price range were very basic by comparison and much more limited in adjustability of batch size and adjustability of parts per million. Most machines could only produce 20 ppm or lower and some had no adjustability of batch size. I did find one machine back then that seemed like a somewhat comparable unit, but back then, that unit was over $900 so it made my decision easier. I am sorry that I do not have another recommendation for you. Art

I bought Colloid Silver (Results RNA ACS 200) via 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.

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.

Colloidal Silver Dosage
Posted by Laura (TX) on 02/04/2021

I make my own Colloidal Silver so I have no way to know how much is in each dose. I do use silver that is 99.9999 % pure. If it isn't working I take more, if I'm getting Jarish Herxheimer I take less. My biggest cure so far has been for Cryptosporidium, but I also use it in a sinus rinse, and in a douche if I feel I am experiencing symptoms. Be careful when using it for these last two ailments as a little seems to work better than a stronger solution.

Posted by Cindy (Illinois, USA) on 09/20/2021 347 posts

I have 2 pre-made generators and a bunch of electronics I'm playing with. The two I chose are "the nano-particle generator" from and a little "silver puppy" from

The nano-particle generator is bigger and has the air tube which makes it a little more cumbersome but it's a lot quicker. I've only just made a batch with the silver puppy and haven't used any yet but it took a long time and still shows at only half the strength of the other so, we'll see. I'm working out a low-tech test to see if it's as effective as it's been reported to be "stronger" at lower ppm due to current-flipping circuitry when you use AC power so...we'll see! I haven't made any using the DC, battery adapter.

I'm sorry for your loss. Could it be possible that the disease itself, Sars Cov2, had something to do with your loved one's getting very sick?

Things like colloidal silver are great and they have a place in health-promoting practices but so does eating right and looking at the science of various practices. A great pulmonary doctor breaks down the role that coronaviruses play in lung health. Dr. Roger Seheult runs Medcram. Check it out. There's lots of material where he goes through the science of it. He also advocates for certain supplements to help lung health like NAC, Vitamin D, and Zinc.
