Making and Using Genuine Colloidal Silver

Written by Print  E-mail

Two thousand, three hundred years ago, Alexander The Great was surveying his battlefield and drinking water from silver urns. He knew nothing about bacteria, but he knew that silver containers have a seemingly miraculous way of keeping water fresh. Silver has been used for thousands of years in different forms for its health benefits. Throughout the middle ages, the wealthy gave their children silver spoons to suck upon to stave off illnesses. People have known about the benefits of silver for so long that it is incorporated into legends. Silver is the recommended agent for killing vampires, werewolves, and various forms of the so-called undead. According to ancient legend, a silver dagger was all that a knight needed to vanquish evil.

The new history of silver is a falsified history. Silver was once used extensively by all health care practitioners as an antibiotic, anti-viral, and as an anti-microbial. Nothing worked better then, and nothing does now. The F.D.A. began its crusade against silver products in the 1930's, because silver (as a natural substance) cannot be patented; but the organization's antibiotic and vaccine industry partners were able to patent their wares. Under the Food and Drug Administration's original name, the Bureau of Chemistry, its real mission was to legally protect the chemical industry by declaring toxic chemicals to be "generally recognized as safe", and to eliminate the chemical industry's competition through regulations. This history has likewise been obscured greatly in most modern historical texts, but the truth can be found in materials from its early period.

Silver medicine has been erased from the textbooks, and it is seldom given mention in medical literature. The official Pharmacopeia (physician's desk reference book) listed dozens of medicinal silver compounds prior to the mid-1930's; but thereafter, all mention of silver disappeared. Newer books report that it never really happened. Before the history was rewritten, silver was like the nuclear weapon of medicine. No human pathogen of any kind survived it. This was the gospel of medicine. Pure colloidal silver is still the most comprehensive and potent antibiotic and anti-viral known, which is actually safe for human consumption, and it is absolutely safe for everyone in every condition. It is natural, has no side effects, and it was killing the worst viral diseases in the 1930's, long before it became impossible to kill viruses with medicine.

Over the past two centuries, silver has been used by both allopathic and alternative medicine. In addition to being used for routine ailments, silver has been used effectively against some of the most notoriously hard to kill illnesses, including tuberculosis and syphilis. It has been used as an anti-bacterial agent that was added to bandages and disinfectant sprays. It has been embedded into clothing to prevent bacteria from producing foul odors from sweat, and it has been merged into cloth that is used in burn centers. Attempts are still being made to lace hospital counter tops with silver, to prevent the growth of bacteria. Silver-lined containers are actively being used to disinfect water in third world countries.

Silver is remarkable because it is an extremely powerful natural anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent, yet it does not impair overall health like antibiotics do. It kills viruses, fungi, and parasites in cases where the parasites live in a symbiotic relationship with a bacterial agent. This is surprisingly common, especially in the case of blood-borne parasites, such as those of U.S. bio-weapons like Lyme disease. Because of the way that silver kills with an electrical charge, no pathogen can be found or engineered to be immune to it. No life can develop an immunity to electricity.

Since the late nineteenth century, colloidal silver has been the safest and most effective way to medicate with silver. Colloidal silver is manufactured by electrically combining silver with pure water. The colloidal manufacturing process uses no chemicals. While silver is now labeled as an alternative medicine, it was once used widely in hospitals as the premiere antiseptic and antibiotic. It is still used in hospital burn centers for its incredible ability to heal burns more rapidly than steroids. We were astounded when witnessing it eliminate a sunburn in the span of just an hour, and a burnt tongue within minutes.

Removing silver from the market was one of the first actions of the Food and Drug Administration when it changed its name in the 1930's. It has gradually changed its name from the Bureau of Chemistry, to the more publicly palatable, Food and Drug Administration. In 1999, after a re-emergence of silver, the F.D.A. completely banned it in any form from being sold in over-the-counter health products, despite the fact that silver has safely been used as a medicine for millennia.

The devastation of the polio epidemic was largely caused by how the Food and Drug Administration suppressed silver to promote its new antibiotics and vaccine industries. By removing silver from the lists of approved medicines, it effectively removed the only treatment that reliably kills polio, which in-turn unleashed the full epidemic of polio. The F.D.A. later claimed a victory over polio in boasting that the new generation of vaccines had saved us. The agency cunningly waited until the epidemic was in its natural decline to release the vaccine, in order to ensure that people saw a connection between the vaccine's release date and the disappearance of the disease. The public, and quite a few doctors, were distracted away from the fact that silver medications were a safe treatment, which effectively kills polio quickly, as well as virtually every other virus known. Prior to this entire smoke-and-mirrors routine, silver was recognized for doing what the establishment now claims is impossible. Had silver medicine not been stripped from the market, the polio epidemic would have never occurred. Today's huge vaccine and antibiotics markets would have never come into being. Silver had to go. Just to stack the dishonest vaccine marketing even more, the F.D.A. and the American Medical Association began promoting tonsillectomies for all children at the same time, while knowing that the tonsils are the only organ in the human body that produces polio antibodies.

The Food and Drug Administration now admits that antibiotic drugs are useless for most of the conditions that they have been prescribed during the last seven decades. The common cold, flu, and the most common type of pneumonia are all now believed to be caused by viruses for which antibiotics are useless against. However, silver is effective against viruses, so untold people have died as a result of silver being replaced with antibiotics.

Another suppression campaign against silver began around the time of the Second World War, when germ warfare agents were being increasingly studied as the new generation of warfare. Silver has the ability to neutralize every bio-weapon that has ever been created, because of how it attacks pathogens electrically. This is one of the primary reasons why it has been suppressed and maligned so aggressively. There are groups within the U.S. Government who do not want anyone to be resistant to U.S. Military bio-weapons, so silver medications have been repressed throughout the world for the sake of a covert military weapons program that is forbidden by international laws. If silver medicine was still being distributed officially as the top tier of medicine, then the bio-weapons program would be rendered impotent, because victims could simply use colloidal silver to recover from any germ warfare agent.

How Silver Medicine is Believed to Work

There are theories about how silver works. The leading one is that silver kills bacteria and viruses electrically, which would make it impossible for pathogens to become resistant to it. Indeed, it is true that there is no evidence of pathogens developing any resistance to colloidal silver. This hypothesis is impossible to prove (or disprove), because we cannot examine a single colloidal particle and its relation to a bacterium, or view the mechanism through which silver kills the latter. We can merely put colloidal silver and bacteria together, and see that all of the bacteria dies rapidly.

It is believed that each particle retains an electrical (ionic) charge, and that each particle of the same metal stores a charge of the same polarity. The charges ensure equal distribution of the particles throughout the solution. The theory is similar to that of magnetism, wherein the same poles of magnets are repelled by each other, and attracted only to their opposites.

There is evidence that silver interferes with copper and iron in the body, by binding with both electrically to chemically form new metallic compounds. People who are using a large amount of colloidal silver regularly may begin to crave foods that are rich in iron, such as beef. It is wise to satisfy these cravings, since they are caused by a deficiency of an important nutrient. Copper can be safely supplemented through the use of chlorophyll, but virtually every other oral source of copper supplementation is dangerous, because it is so trivially easy to overdose with it and cause liver damage. Due to colloidal silver's ability to neutralize iron, men over the age of 30 will benefit from occasional colloidal silver supplementation. Iron accumulation in the bodies of men is believed to be one of the key reasons why women live longer than men do, and excessive iron is a major contributor to heart disease in men.

The Different Silver Products

There are many different types of silver solutions, including silver nitrates, ionic silvers, colloidal silvers, silver chlorides, and silver proteins. The only completely safe medicinal silver product, and the kind that we officially recommend, is colloidal silver.

Silver nitrate is produced by the pharmaceutical industry by combining silver with nitric acid. It can damage the liver and kidneys like most pharmaceutical drugs. It is the terrible side effects of silver nitrate that the establishment often uses to justify its attacks upon colloidal silver, in more slight-of-hand tactics. Pharmaceutical silver nitrate has a long history of turning patients' skin a bluish-gray color. Nitrates are the poisonous compounds that are added to meat products which cause cancers. In other words, the F.D.A. pushed the poisonous and carcinogenic nitrate compounds on the public, and blamed the consequences on silver.

Ionic and colloidal silver are almost identically produced. The main difference between them is the size of the silver particles. In ionic silver, the particles are atomically small, to such a degree that even testing for their existence is difficult. It is possible that the particles in ionic silver are so small that the water itself becomes a different substance, because the silver particles are no longer completely autonomous. In colloidal silver, the particles are still microscopically small, but not as small as they are in ionic silver. Ionic silver can be made using very small voltages, over extended periods of time with silver plates. Higher voltages, or decreased resistance in the water produces colloidal silver. For true colloidal or ionic silver, the water must remain pure, so the only way to reduce the resistance of the water is to heat it, which most commercial manufacturers unwisely do.

Colloidal silver is much more likely to have a color, whereas ionic silver is always clear. This is because the larger particles in the colloidal silver provide a greater surface area. Ionic silver particles are so small that they are actually smaller than the wavelengths of visible light, making the silver invisible and colorless in even high concentrations. All colloidal silver solutions are mixtures of ionic and colloidal silver, but ionic solutions can be completely ionic. It is not possible to produce colloidal silver without also producing ionic silver. This is analogous to a construction worker who extracts materials from a brick wall. He might use a grinding tool that yielded only a fine powder, or he could bash the brick wall with a sledge hammer, which would yield a mixture of large chunks and fine powder. The use of higher voltages for colloidal extraction is like hammering the silver. The larger particles that are found in colloidal silver solutions are especially beneficial for external use, including the treatment of burns. Ionic silver is useless externally, and its internal effects have never been studied by independent third parties. Only colloidal silver and silver nitrate have been scientifically scrutinized for effectiveness, and only the colloidal variant is truly safe. Incredibly, colloidal silver is the only type which the pharmaceutical industry has never sold.

Another silver product is silver chloride. It is essentially made in the same manner as colloidal silver, but with the addition of table salt (sodium chloride). It is a cloudy liquid (often whitish) that is extremely photosensitive. Upon illumination or heating, the silver chloride solution separates into silver and chlorine. This instability makes it unsafe for human consumption. When ingested, silver chloride has a tendency to migrate to the outer tissues. Then, when the skin is exposed to sunlight, the silver chloride will break down into silver and chlorine. This causes the bluish-gray skin discoloration that has been heavily publicized as damning evidence against silver medicine. Victims of this phenomenon often claim that they drank colloidal silver, but the addition of salt transformed it into a very different substance that was chemically unstable. Conversely, true colloidal silver compounds are extremely non-reactive. Silver chloride has no benefits over colloidal silver, and it comes with risks. The salt is usually added to speed production time, but the same effect can be achieved with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in a much safer manner. The addition of sodium bicarbonate will yield especially large particles, which is unwise for internal use, but the resultant solution would nevertheless be ideal for external use. It would be excellent for burn treatments and infectious wound treatments.

Silver proteins contain much larger particles than either colloidal or ionic silver, and they should never be used internally. These were formerly approved of by the F.D.A., and they were preferred by the pharmaceutical industry. The silver particles in silver protein solutions are so large that they simply sink in the water, and the particles never stay evenly distributed without the aid of an added gelling agent. Due to the large size of the silver particles, and the silver's binding with proteins, there is a dramatically increased likelihood that silver will become trapped in the fatty tissues. Therefore, these thick solutions are likely to produce the infamous bluish discoloration of the skin too.

Dishonest Silver Companies

Misinformation is being spread by most sellers of colloidal silver. Most sellers boast about colloidal silver by showcasing its long history of safe usage, but they simultaneously claim to use a proprietary process that makes their silver superior to all other silver products. Their admitted usage of non-standard manufacturing processes means that they cannot sincerely use the safety history of colloidal silver as an example of their own product's safety, or honestly declare that their untested proprietary product is as effective. If a different manufacturing process is used, then the result cannot actually be colloidal silver. There is only one way to make colloidal silver, and any other manufacturing process will yield an entirely different product. Hence, the marketing for most colloidal silver is patently dishonest from start to end. This is not an indictment against colloidal silver itself, but its sellers tend to be morally bankrupt, and the product that they sell is a potentially dangerous fraud. Every manufacturing short-cut seems to have consequences.

We are aware from patent applications that some companies are producing silver solutions using fermenting bacteria combined with silver nitrates, instead of using electricity; but we do not know exactly which silver products are manufactured using this deplorable process. Whenever silver products are produced this way, they are inherently tainted with the dangerous nitrate compounds that the pharmaceutical silvers became infamous for. The effects of these toxic impurities can be much more severe than mere skin discolorations. Organ damage is a known consequence of using nitrate compounds, and cancers.

Most sellers of modern colloidal silver advertise that their product contains between 10 and 20 parts per million. They probably seek this concentration due to the research of Alfred Searle. He authored the book, The Use of Colloids in Health and Disease, in 1920. He is also the founder of Searle Pharmaceuticals. His company was respectable in its early history, and Searle was long dead before his company dishonored his memory by selling itself to Monsanto. In his book, Mr. Searle reported that a concentration of just 20 parts per million of silver was proven to be deadly to all known pathogenic life forms, including every known virus. However, these results do not equate to the 10-20 parts per million ratings that can be found on most silver products of today. The reason is that the methods of testing have changed dramatically.

Alfred Searle used a Tyndall meter to measure how many particles of silver were present in a solution. It is a device that uses light to test for hue and reflection, which are used to determine the particle count and their size. These devices use light wavelengths as the means of measurement. Most modern sellers of silver products instead purchase an electronic device that measures the conductivity of the finished product. The conductivity of different solutions will always vary greatly, so these meters cannot possibly do what they are advertised to do. For example, if salt were added to the water, then it would have a different effect on the conductivity than if copper were added, because of their differing electrical properties. Yet the sellers of these meters claim that they are able to get accurate results measuring particle counts regardless of a solution's ingredients. If salt or another electrolyte exists in the water, the conductivity of the water will increase dramatically, even whilst the number of particles will stay roughly the same. Particle size and the temperature of the solution also effect the conductivity, which the meter has no way of determining. Even a gust of wind will give a different reading, due to the electrostatic effect upon the surface of the solution. In the case of colloidal metals, electrically gauging the concentration is even more futile than it is for other types of solutions, because the metallic liquid is an electrolytic capacitor with a constantly changing capacitance. Electricity cannot be used to measure the amount of metal in a solution when the surface area of the metal cannot be verified, and when the capacitance of the solution is ever-changing. It is like trying to get a consistent light measurement from a fireworks display. The capacitive solution itself will produce its own tiny currents, and it will block currents from the meter, which makes electronic testing an exercise in absurdity. The only way to accurately measure concentration in a metallic colloidal fluid is using light. Thus, the parts per million rating given by most colloidal and ionic silver sellers is meaningless. Since colloidal silver changes the color of the water, clear colloidal solutions are frequently just expensive water, regardless of any measurement that sellers purportedly get. In the case of ionic silvers, it is impossible to measure the particle count, since the particles are too small to reflect light.

TDS Meter, the de facto manufacturer of the new testing equipment, even acknowledges the uselessness of its own meters on its website, in an amusing attempt at damage control:

" ...temperature changes by a tenth of a degree may increase or decrease the conductivity. Additionally, the temperature coefficient (what the reading is multiplied by to adjust for temperature differences) changes slightly depending upon the range of ppm... Even a tiny air bubble that has adhered to one of the probes could potentially affect the conductivity, and thus the reading... Electrical charges off fingers, static eletricity off clothes, etc. on the meter and lingering electrical charges in the water will affect the conductivity of the water... Plastic cups retain lingering electrical charges more than glass. If the meter touches the side of the glass or plastic, it could pick up a slight charge. If the plastic is retaining a charge, it could also affect the water... The amount of water in the sample may affect the conductivity. Different volumes of the same water may have different levels of conductivity. Displacement may affect the conductivity as well... The depth and position of the probe in the water sample may also affect the conductivity. For example, if a meter is dipped into the water, removed and then dipped into the water again, but in a different spot, the reading may change... "

The expensive methods of testing colloidal solutions that are utilized by modern laboratories are likewise grossly flawed. Flame atomic absorption spectroscopy is one of the leading laboratory methods for analyzing colloidal solutions. It uses extreme temperatures to destroy a colloidal solution, and then observers rate the colors of the flames, in an attempt to visually gauge the metal concentration. Fire is impossible to control with the precision that is needed for a valid analysis; and of course, the test results are in the eyes of the beholder. These machines cost about $50,000 (U.S), so it is unlikely that anyone outside of the chemical industry actually owns one. There are similar devices that utilize a beam of light that is projected through the flames during the analysis. These devices have the same inaccuracy issues, and they are even more expensive.

True Colloidal Silver

We have been unable to find any sellers of silver solutions whom we could fully trust, so this is intended to assist people in producing their own colloidal silver. The silver solutions sold at retailers are essentially the homeopathic versions of colloidal and ionic silver products, which means that they are merely high-priced water. Some of the retail products that we examined had plenty of impurities (like iron that biologically neutralizes silver), but we found very little silver. Testing was impossible in the case of ionic silvers, which may be convenient for manufacturers. At many locations, the municipal water supply will contain more silver than the fraudulent retail products. The majority of retail products are fake, and these bogus products are the primary reason why so many people who are new to alternative medicine believe that silver is ineffective. The products that retail shoppers typically buy are usually no more effective than water, because they are water. People can either take their best guess in choosing the commercially-available products, or they can produce their own to ensure that it is real and of the best quality.

Manufacturing Colloidal Silver

The most important step in the production of colloidal silver is obtaining the right materials. Using distilled water is vital. Never use tap or spring water, because even minerals that would normally be beneficial can cause health problems once they are electro-chemically transformed through electrolysis. Ensure that the water has been distilled using steam distillation, which should be written on the container. Some "distilled" water containers have, "distilled through reverse osmosis" on the label, and these labels are entirely dishonest. True distillation uses steam to separate the water from its minerals and contaminants, whereas reverse osmosis is simply a type of pressurized filtration that does not render pure water. It is a much cheaper process, so some of the companies lie about their "distillation". Beware of Food Lion brand distilled water in particular, because our testing during the production of colloidal copper indicated that it is impure, even though it is labeled to have been distilled. Also be forewarned that the formation of black chunks and other strangely-colored precipitates during the electrolysis process is an indication of water impurities. Black is the most common color for these, because they are usually the charred carbon remnants of organic matter and bicarbonates. In batches that produce large particles of silver, because the electrolysis process is continued for too long, the voltage is too high, or the silver plates are too close together, some grayish chucks may form in the water. These particulates are actually safe and produced by the silver. They are especially beneficial for burns and skin infections, but they should be filtered out of the solution for internal use. A coffee filter works exceptionally well for this, and the solution may be drained by gravity through a coffee maker. Silver particles which have not clumped remain in either a colloidal or an ionic state, and these will pass through any filter. In fact, the particles are so small that wooden spoons and plastic utensils will begin to develop a silvery appearance after several batches. Never use metal utensils. The only metals in the process should be the silver itself and the electrical connection wires.

Using chlorinated tap water is especially dangerous, because when chlorine combines with other materials, it has a tendency to form dioxin compounds. It will also produce chlorine gas during electrolysis, which was used as a chemical warfare agent during World War I. Sodium chloride (salt) in the water will also release chlorine gas, so salt should never be added. As an important side note, tap water should never be used inside vaporizers for the same reason, because chlorine gas will be released into the air to actually worsen lung issues.

We recommend that instead of obtaining silver wire, which is used for most colloidal silver manufacture, people instead use silver bullion bars (pictured). Most of the silver wire available comes from China, and it is simply not feasible to check every wire for impurities. Chinese wire should be assumed to be contaminated, because this is normal. When referencing the purity of metals, companies use an obscure way of gauging purity. When a seller of a precious metal refers to it as having a purity of 925, it equates to 92.5 percent, so the metal would be almost 10 percent impure. Most people will assume that a purity rating of 925 means that silver consists of 0.925% impurities, and therefore it would be over 99% pure. Be watchful of this gotcha. A large portion of the silver buyers seem to be ignorant of it. We recommend getting at least 99.9% pure (written by sellers as 999). This is the standard purity of silver bullion bars, and it is why we only recommend using silver bullion bars. All other sources should be considered impure.

Never use silver coins for colloidal silver manufacture, because coins contain a variety of other metals that should not be consumed. High purity silver is vital, because most metals are extremely detrimental to the health. Bullion bars are the only source of silver that are guaranteed to be safe, because it is regulated as a currency. Silver of such extreme purity typically only contains the impurities of copper and selenium, in trace amounts. Both of which are beneficial to health in these small quantities. If fact, both are vital nutrients. The selenium is actually used by the human body to chelate harmful metals.

To avoid any soap or chemical residues, the bullion bars should be soaked in a solution of white vinegar that is nearly saturated with salt for cleaning. They can also safely be cleaned with vodka. It is not absolutely necessary to clean the silver between uses, but we do. Be advised that the silver will never look new again, regardless of the cleaning method.

People may either use three 9V batteries that are interconnected in series, or a 30V DC power supply that has a rated output of at least 3 amps (3,000 mA), to power the electrolysis. A power supply does not have to be exactly 30 volts, but it is the ideal voltage. The range should be kept between 26 and 30 volts, which is also ideal for creating colloidal copper. Those who have no experience with electronics should opt for battery power, instead of using a DC power supply. Serious injury and fire can result from the improper use of a power supply. The electrical danger is elevated because water is being used. For liability reasons, we must officially recommend against using a power supply, and anyone using a power supply does so at his own risk. Batteries must be interconnected, so that the positive terminal of one battery is connected to the negative terminal of another battery. When properly connected, one battery should have an unused positive pole, and the opposite battery should have an unused negative pole. These two remaining terminals should be connected to the two pieces of silver. Most 9V batteries in the U.S. have terminals that can be used to interconnect with other 9V batteries, whereby connection wire is unnecessary for the battery to battery connections. Never use aluminum wire for any of the connections, and we strongly recommend the use of only copper wiring, for the sake of preventing unhealthy contaminants.

To make colloidal silver, fill a completely clean glass or plastic container with distilled water. We suggest cleaning the container with vodka immediately beforehand, to remove soap residues. Connect the batteries to the pieces of silver. Most people do this with alligator clips. We usually make our connections by inserting copper wires through tiny holes in the top of the silver bullion, and then we twist-tie the wires for maximum hold. Never solder the connection to the silver, and it is wise to even avoid soldering the wires to the alligator clips, for solder can leach lead or cadmium into the solution if the metal components become moist. Nobody should be supplementing with lead and cadmium.

The silver bars should be partially submerged in the water, and be about an inch apart. They should never touch, and the wire connections should never enter the water. If the connectors or silver are allowed to touch, the batteries or the power supply will have a dead short. This could cause overheating and an explosion. It could easily mean a quick death for the power supply. The electrical connections to the silver should be clearly above the water, else other metals will become infused into the solution. Nothing except for pure silver should be in contact with the water. We recommend that all other connectors and wires be maintained at least a quarter inch above the water's surface. We should offer one last reminder of the risks of using solder, which include the introduction of tin, lead and cadmium into the product.

The time needed to produce colloidal silver will vary greatly depending on the purity of water that is used, and no commercially-available water is absolutely pure. One of the first indicators that silver is combining with the water can be seen with a flashlight in a dark room. Shining light through the water at certain angles will show what appears to be smoke coming from one of the silver plates. As time progresses, one of the silver plates will turn a flat gray color, and the other plate will blacken. Tiny bubbles may also form around the silver plates. Those producing a large batch over an extended period should gently stir the solution periodically, using a wooden or plastic spoon. Some people can produce a quart in twenty minutes, but our own experimentation in making 2 quarts required a duration of 4 hours to reach the acceptable strength and color. Due to the fact that silver is extremely non-reactive, a slower process indicates higher purity in both the silver and the water. Pure water and pure silver will both be very resistant to the electrolysis process. Readers may notice that many of the online manufacturing videos show colloidal silver being produced very rapidly, using silver wires that were obtained from China. The short manufacture time indicates the presence of other, more reactive metals, and perhaps impure water too. When producing our own colloidal silver, we add about 3 fluid ounces of existing colloidal silver to speed the production time, without effecting the quality of the resultant product.

Used Silver Bullion Bars

To make the silver bars last as long as possible, the polarity should be reversed each time. This means that the silver bar that is connected to the positive (red) wire in one batch should be switched so that it is connected to negative in the next batch. Otherwise, one of the bars will rapidly erode.

If a colloidal silver solution is black, brown, or purple, then it indicates that the silver particles are abnormally large. It may also reflect the presence of impurities. The huge particle size of these products makes it debatable if these solutions can truly be called colloidal. It is how most colloidal silvers from online sellers look. The ugly discolorations can also be caused by heating during production, or from the use of high voltages, which are common shortcuts taken by the commercial manufacturers. We recommend that such solutions be avoided, except as a last resort. These products are significantly less effective internally than properly-produced colloidal silver, and the abnormally-large silver particles are more likely to get forever trapped in the tissues. Most commercial sellers have proprietary processes for production, which cannot be trusted, and there is no way to know what is really in their products. We do know from the color of their products that they are not selling true colloidal silver.

Properly Medicating with Colloidal Silver

High quality colloidal silver, at an appropriate medicinal strength, usually looks slightly yellowish in a brilliant white container, under a fluorescent light. Some batches of colloidal silver will instead have a slight silvery tint. The two colors are an indication of a particle size difference, but there should essentially be no difference in effectiveness. Some batches turn yellow about a day after production. The strength of a colloidal silver solution can be judged by shining a laser pointer through the solution, whilst the silver is being infused. A red laser pointer is best, because it is least visible under normal conditions. As the silver solution gets stronger, it will become possible to see the red beam clearly through the water. As the solution becomes more concentrated, the laser beam will become more solid.

We recommend against making stronger concentrations for most uses, because silver appears to create iron deficiencies with extreme dosages. We do not truly know if the colloidal silver causes the increased excretion of iron, or if it simply neutralizes usable iron by bonding with it, or both. We believe that it is both. Either way, there are no real human toxicity issues, but the proper iron level should be nevertheless maintained for optimal health.

During times of sickness, we recommend using 3 fluid ounces of colloidal silver, twice a day. Best results can be achieved by holding the colloidal silver in the mouth for a minute before swallowing it. This technique allows some silver to penetrate through the walls of the mouth, and directly into the blood stream. Expect for it to have a metallic aftertaste. Due to the wide variety of people who will read this article, we have made the recommended silver dosage very conservative. However, some patients measure their dosages in cups.

Storage of Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver may be stored in either plastic or glass. The ideal plastic is the type that is used to store milk. It is high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and it can be identified in the U.S. by a number "2" embossed into the bottom of the container. It is a very non-reactive plastic, but the microscopic silver particles may stain it.

Colloidal silver should be stored at room temperature, and never allowed to freeze. The silver will coagulate into visible chunks at the bottom when frozen, which will make the solution much less effective and create the possibility that it will cause argyria. Therefore, an interesting experiment to verify the presence of silver in the solution is to freeze a small amount of it, and then examine the clumped silver in the bottom of the container after thawing. If a choice must be made between storage in a hot or cold environment, the warmer environment should always be chosen.

Pure colloidal silver should not experience any of the serious breakdown problems that silver chloride solutions do whenever there is light exposure; but we nevertheless store our colloidal silver in a dark location, because darkness might somewhat help to keep it better preserved.

A good batch of colloidal silver should last for years, because the silver itself is a powerful preservative. In fact, we use it as a substitute for water in risky foods that use uncooked ingredients, such as raw eggs (for mayonnaise production). It is used to ensure that all of the bacteria is dead. A minute of blending with colloidal silver is enough to ensure that no bacteria survives.

Patients Experiencing the Blues

The medical establishment and the big media organizations have demonized colloidal silver by parading people who have developed a condition known as argyria. It is a bluish-gray discoloration of the skin that is reported to be permanent. However, every case that we investigated involved products that were not actually colloidal silver, and most cases were the result of pharmaceutical-industry silver products. Our exhaustive research could not find a single instance of argyria that was caused by pure colloidal silver. The pharmaceutical silver solutions are the most likely to cause it.

Regulators proclaim that the people who turned blue provide evidence of silver's toxicity, but the opposite is actually true. It proves that even after a person is so incredibly saturated with silver from 20+ years of misuse that he turns blue, he still does not suffer from any health problems. The blue patients are actually healthier than normal. Take for comparison: a patient who consumes enough aspirin to turn white. Actually, we cannot use this example, because within 20 minutes of such extreme aspirin consumption, the patient would be dead from internal bleeding -- long before he ever began changing color.

The National Institutes of Health documented one case of argyria that occurred when a man started producing his own silver solution and consumed 16 fluid ounces of it, three times each day, for a period of years. He measured his silver to contain a whopping 450 parts per million, which is 22 times stronger than is normal. This regimen gave his body the same concentration of silver as if he had consumed 1,056 fluid ounces of standard colloidal silver (8.25 gallons per day). The extreme concentration means that the silver had to be discolored and impure, and it almost certainly had salt added. Otherwise, it would have taken him days to manufacture each day's batch at such concentrations, so we can be certain that he was using silver chloride instead of colloidal silver. It is a reflection of the stupidity of turning to pharmaceutical manufacturing processes for the practice of alternative medicine, and then using the terrible results to prove that alternative medicine is bad. It is what we see most often in the politics of silver.

The most popularized case of argyria is that of Paul Karason, the so-called Smurf Man. He internally consumed large doses of a homemade silver solution for years, and then began also using silver externally on his face. He too made his silver solution using salt, which resulted in silver chloride. Despite it being a completely different substance, he refers to his solution as "colloidal silver", as well as the media. We believe that after he noticed some slight skin discoloration, he actually increased his dosage, because he had found a way to become famous and profit from being a freak. He admits publicly to using excessive amounts of his silver chloride both internally and transdermally, daily for 14 years. He still continues to use it, despite his obvious saturation. He further admits that his face turned blue before the rest of his body; and yet he continued to use both silver products, despite the color change. Due to Karason's self-inflicted and intentional cosmetic alteration, the F.D.A. has used him in a public relations campaign that is intended to convince the public that colloidal silver is dangerous. We can only speculate about how much the media networks and the F.D.A. have paid him for his appearances.

Not one death or serious side effect has ever been recorded for pure colloidal silver, during the century of its existence. There are, however, plenty of horror stories from people who used the chemically-altered silvers, made with various proteins, salts, or fermented bacteria.

    Great info, thank you. Does the oxidation prevent the reuse of the silver when creating colloidal silver? I wouldn't think so, but should it be cleaned before the next use? Appreciate the information!

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)

    Thank you for asking some very thoughtful questions. As a result, we will be revising the article to add some information that we left out.

    It is not absolutely necessary to clean the silver between uses, but we do. If you do decide to clean them, use a white vinegar solution that is nearly saturated with salt, or vodka. Do not use polishing agents, or anything else that could leave a chemical residue. Be advised that the silver will never look new again, regardless of what you do.

    Also, to make the silver last as long as possible, the polarity should be reversed each time. This means that the silver bar that is connected to the positive wire in one batch should be switched so that it is connected to negative in the next batch. Otherwise, one of the bars will be eroded rapidly.

  • Kathleen Scott  - Great Aticle

    Well written and very informative. Thank you very much.

  • Kenneth Quinn  - Colloidal Silver Generator

    Thanks for the great article. About 13 years ago I bought a Colloidal Silver Generator but I haven't used it for a long time. Now I am reading that if my Arthritis is caused by a virus, which it should be because it is spreading, then maybe I should break this thing back out and start using it. It says "Robey" on it, and I remember reading the same thing, to stay away from the pre-made silver water, and make your own. This unit has a silver plate that is dark grey and a wire that is still kind of shiny, but I don't see a way to reverse polarity. Do you have any experience with this "Robey" unit? At the time they seemed very honest and knowledgeable and pretty much said all the same stuff in your article, except for the Chinese wire. Do you think it would be safe for me to start using again? It pretty much looks brand new. It has a dial for PPM to set at 20 and a start button. Don't want to supplement with a heavy metal though. I have been trying to clean myself of heavy metals. Thanks in advance.

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)

    Unfortunately, we have no information about the 'Robey' unit. The importance of high purity is so great, however, that we feel it prudent to only recommend the bullion bars, because they are always pure. The PPM meter is a scam, as described with the TDS meters in the article. It is not possible to gauge the concentration of silver in the water electrically.

  • Robin Talsma  - Great Article

    I have 1 quart mason jars that I will be using. I'm wondering how long to leave the silver in? You mentioned 2 quarts for 4 hours. Does this mean 1 quart for 2 hours? I will be using alligator clips, copper wire, silver bullion (1 oz. each), 3 9 volt batteries and steam distilled water.

    Also, my mason jars have a metal lid. Will it be acceptable to put plastic over the top of the jar and then screw the lid down to store the colloidal silver?

    Thanks so much for your help in advance!

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)

    It may take slightly longer if you do not already have colloidal silver to prime it with. When it has a yellow or silvery tint, it is finished. It would be fine to use a metal lid for storing, so long as the silver is not in direct contact with it.

  • Mark Gleason

    I think a TDS meter would be good for initially testing distilled water for contaminates. Atlas Nova has silver wire that they claim is certified to be .9999 pure. Canadian silver maple leaf coins are .9999 as well. Do you still recommend Ben Taylor? I've noticed his is much better than the overpriced colorless CS I've got from a certain "health store". Regardless, I've decided to make my own CS for a tiny fraction of what I've been buying it for. Great article!

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    We have been dreading the inevitable questions about Ben Taylor (Utopia Silver Supplements), and this is a painful topic for us. Because of our past association with him, our people deserve an explanation, so we shall answer the question. For a variety of reasons, both professional and personal, our ties with Ben have been severed. We considered him to be a good friend in the past, and we felt that he had earned a certain degree of respect. Times change, and so do people.

    Here is a quick chronology of the history.

    1. We initially spotted Ben after Natural News featured an article about his battle with the F.D.A.

    2. We interviewed him for an article in Naturally Good Magazine (now defunct) about his legal battle. In retrospect, we never actually possessed any official documents to prove that it ever happened, but those were our early days.

    3. We so liked him that we interviewed him for the first of our audio shows. That show has been recently removed, because we do not feel that it would be ethical to continue promoting him.

    4. A period of years passed whereby we exchanged information and correspondence about silver and a variety of health topics, and he periodically gifted us with huge tanks of his purple-brown, "colloidal" silver.

    5. Several years ago, we began getting slightly hostile messages from Ben concerning our exposure of alternative medicine frauds and supplement frauds. From memory alone, I recall that Ben sells both silica "supplements" and colloidal copper (which is extremely and irresponsibly dangerous). Unfortunately, Ben will sell anything that makes money with plenty of bogus claims. He shamelessly attempted to use his influence on us to get our information removed, which would have been detrimental to our readers. Our respect for him started falling fast because of these issues.

    6. The childish drama continued for several years, with a yo-yo like pattern of us being loved and disliked by him; depending upon our reporting and the overall line-up of the stars. For the most part, we quietly monitored his correspondence with curiosity and fascination, while hoping that our concerns about his character were misguided paranoia.

    7. We discovered that Ben has a foolish tendency of surrounding himself with crooks, quacks, and con men. He sorely does not appreciate having this pointed out. We specifically reported about some of the people who were hurt (and killed) by them in several of our audio shows, and the fraudulent methodology ("medicine") that was used. For example, one of his friends, Ken O' Neal (Kenneth W. O'Neal, M.D.), injected unfiltered and unpasteurized ocean water ("Quinton plasma") directly into a peoples' veins as a supplement -- with death being the usual result. That monster was permanently banned from medicine, but his business got new life at Utopia Silver Supplements. Ben was actually sending people to a guy who did that (killed 3 people in a row). The new business was "mineral analysis" (diagnosis and treatments) using hair samples, which too is very iffy science. We're willing to bet that "the doctor" recommended Ben's silica "supplements", and maybe Ben's copper too. It took us about 15 seconds to uncover the guy's murderous history with a search engine, so Ben had to know. After all, he was promoting the guy as the medical expert. Anyway, Ben's correspondence with us became short and infrequent.

    8. Our own experimentation with Ben's silver has shown that his purple-brown product is truly exceptional for external use, whether it is used for making eye drops or eliminating burns. It is the best colloidal silver that we have found for external use, but it seems to do little when used internally as medicine. Because of these factors, we have concluded that his colloidal silver is so extremely large particle that it can barely be called colloidal. We are not sure what to call it, but in the very least, it is obvious that Ben takes some short cuts in the process. He refused to tell even us what his manufacturing process is, so it is an entirely proprietary process, which means there is a good chance that it is not pure colloidal silver. There is only one way to make proper colloidal silver, and everybody who has taken the time to learn already knows it.

    9. Enter Ben's "friends" again, who seem to always be swarming him and looking for ways to take advantage of him and everyone else. We feel that the worst offender is a twit named Tony Isaacs. Some of you may recognize him from such infamous quackery promotions as the use of the oleander plant as a "cancer cure", or from his lunatic recommendations at ''. His newest one comes from his Internet "radio show". It is so comical that we have to mention it in passing. Did you know that you can talk to your DNA and tell it to fix you? We didn't! We can hardly believe that Ben cannot see through this guy. It is our (legally unqualified) opinion that Tony Isaacs is a textbook sociopath, who will manipulate those around him to hurt themselves in ways that benefit him. He came by here several times to "educate" us about why our audience should be drinking iodine, because we were making his "medicine" look bad. His manipulation games did not work here, and it could be said that he got a very warm welcome. In revenge, he boasted that he was super-close friends with Ben (could easily manipulate), and that we could expect to never hear from Ben again -- as a punishment. We have not heard from Ben since.

    10. We do not know if the problem is that Ben is simply not the person that he used to be, or if he has merely allowed himself to be surrounded by trashy people who are dragging him down. Either way, it is our personal and professional opinion that his present lack of character means that he cannot be trusted overall; and subsequently, we must officially recommend against doing business with him.

    We realized early on that our work would lose us lots of friends. We also realized that we would have to choose between truth and popularity. We accept the consequences of that decision.

  • Jimmie Miller  - Utopia Silver

    Bless you guys for the important work you do here, there is so much information and misinformation out there that it is hard to figure out which is correct and what is safe and effective or not. Thank you for this info. I had looked into CS and was thinking of trying the Utopia Silver since I saw a lot of good reviews on it. Maybe I'll get supplies to make my own instead because I want to use it internally.

  • gonzo  - Thank you

    I've been using a silver generator that I purchased a couple years ago when I started noticing some really bad physical problems. At first I was pretty stoked on it, using it in conjunction with the a blood electrification unit, based on the late Dr. Bob Becks research, but over time I just lost interest. After reading a few well written articles recently on, I began using it again, at a few ounces each day, holding it in the mouth, just as Thomas recommends. In complete honesty, my joint pain has pretty much vanished, whereas before I was having some seriously brutal mornings, wondering if I could even get up out of bed. Ouch! I'm not out of the woods yet, but hopefully with a rich, clean diet, sunshine, and a reduction of chemical poisons, (which are unavoidable unless you know where they are hiding) I will be able to make a full recovery, stronger, faster, and wiser than before.

    I have been reading the site here for a while now, since around November last year, I think, and I can't thank Sarah and Thomas enough for the intelligence and wisdom which they freely share with all.

    PS. I am not really sure if the blood electrification is a valuable tool or not, but the idea behind it made sense to me when bought it, but that doesn't mean much, because truth gets slanted every which way for all kinds of reasons. Maybe, at some point, the Healthwyze team will offer their input on it?

    Cheers all

  • Robin Talsma  - batteries

    Hello, My first batch of CS appeared to have gone well. The proper color etc. I used the same batteries with my second batch. I used the remaining water in the gallon jug of steam distilled water. I also left it on for 2 hours longer.

    This time, there were a few fuzzies around the silver bars and the bars were not as discolored.

    The water is clear, no yellow tint whatsoever. Does this mean it's not concentrated enough? Should I have used new batteries? How many times can the batteries be used when making two quarts of CS at a time?

    I also used vodka for cleaning everything, inside the jars and the bars. Copper wire from the terminal of the batteries to the alligator clips holding the silver bars in the water. Silver bars only immerced half way to avoid contact with the alligator clips.

    Thanks for your response!

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    It is probably fine. We have had similar batches ourselves. I'd bet that if you put the colloidal silver into a clean glass container (like a coffee pot) and held it between yourself and an incandescent light, then you would see it looking silvery. Some of our batches remind us of mercury. We have also had a batch that tinted yellow a day later, and we can't explain that. We're dealing with some weird science here that nobody fully understands. We have noticed that it makes the surface of the water super reflective from the underside, so that a 45 degree laser that is pointing up will be completely reflected down. It should taste slightly metallic. You can always try the freezing test to make sure it has silver particles, but the fuzzy stuff that formed around the bars should already tell you that. During the electrolysis process, what is really happening is that one of the silver bars is trying to electroplate the other one. Some of the particles don't make it, and end up being infused in the water. In some of out batches, we have seen the silver bars actually build a bridge between them of silver particles. The results will be better if there is stirring, and the particles are periodically wiped away with a wooden spoon.

  • Diahann Moyler  - Is it expensive?

    I am interested in making colloidal silver but I am a little apprehensive about my ability to do it correctly. How much does a bar of silver cost and from where would I get it? Is there any way you guys can make and sell the colloidal silver like you do the lotion? I would definitely purchase some. Can you provide a picture of the how the set up should be? I am a visual learner. Thanks so much for the information provided.

  • Norman Smith

    Thanks for a very informative article. I have already made up a gallon of CS for my immediate family and have passed the info along to my extended family. I used 999 silver bars purchased off ebay. Two each one troy ounce bars cost $65 with free shipping. I just made certain that the seller had a high rating from buyers. I did 2 quarts at a time and used 3 nine volt batteries, running each batch for 4 hours. I tested the batteries after the last batch and the reading for each was still over 9 volts. So the batteries deplete very little and should last for several batches. Investing in a voltmeter would be useful for those wondering how much voltage is left in the batteries. They can be found for as little as $10.

    My wife easily gets pneumonia and really suffers when she has to take a course of antibiotics. The side effects are terrible. I have her primed to take the CS at the first sign of a cold and hopefully this will eliminate many future problems. Time will tell.

    Thanks again for the wonderful information.

  • Paul Rodrigues


    I was wondering if it is worth buying a silver generator like silver edge ..
    They say it makes the silver particles smaller and easier absorbed..
    I"m on my way to make my own silver with the bars like you mentioned..
    Are these generators in your opinion worth the over $200 investment?


    Great site by the way..
    Honest and true..

  • Hermann Mittelholzer  - Re: Thinking about buying a silver generator

    If you are thinking about buying a silver generator I would suggest that there is a much cheaper option that is just as good, if not better.

    When I was making my own investigations I found units starting at about $150 up to about $375, and some of the lower priced generators required that you purchase extra batteries, in addition to the .999 silver wire needed to make the colloid.

    My own solution was to source (which I did on eBay), a good quality variable DC power supply which goes from 0V to 30V. A good quality power supply will cost, including delivery, around $85 and will serve you just as well as a dedicated unit, for a fraction of the price. Hope this helps.

  • Jim Morrison

    Out this goes to lots of emails. GREAT article. I now see the fda [federal department of assassins] are a bunch of assissins for hire by the criminal drug companies, who have murdered millions of people. They did not "cause their deaths" - they murdered them.

  • Craig Hilles  - Similar issue to Robin Talsma

    I had a similar experience to Robin Talsma. My first batch was a quart which I ran for about 2 hours, and it came out just like you said, slightly yellowish.

    I ran a second batch with the same batteries and this one was completely clear. I went ahead and used it for a cold.

    My third batch I ran for 2 1/2 hours (1 quart again), same batteries, and this one is VERY yellow. Do you think that one is safe to use or should I dump it? I could just take smaller doses.

  • Arnold Beland

    There are three main factors that will determine the quality of the colloidal silver that you make. The first is the water that you use. It must be distilled to a high degree of purity. You will need some way to check that the water you are using is pure enough. The distilled water that is sold in grocery stores in 1 gallon containers will generally be good enough. You will still need some way to check it. This can be done with a conductivity meter or by some method included in the design and function of whatever generator we use.
    The second factor is the purity of the silver that we use. We want silver ions and preferably no other metals. We want to make a solution containing silver ions, as they are proven to be of great benefit. There are many other metals, however, that can do us great harm. We must take every precaution we can to avoid taking toxic metals into our bodies. This is why we use only 9999 silver wire and insist on a certificate of analysis showing the impurities that are present. In the case of the highest quality silver the largest impurity will be copper which is not bad in small amounts. This will be the case in silver that comes directly from silver ore that is refined directly. If you buy silver without an assay certificate it could contain scraps from manufacturing facilities that are alloying silver with any number of other metals. So it's not just a matter of it being 9999, but what is the nature of the other .01%. When you consider the fact that when we make colloidal silver the result is a liquid solution with silver in parts per million (PPM), it makes no sense to try to economize on this. If we consider making colloidal silver at a strength of 10 PPM for example, 1 ounce of silver wire could make theoretically 100,000 ounces or 1500 gallons of colloidal silver.
    The third factor is the amount of time that we allow the process. Hydrogen will appear at the cathode (the negatively charged electrode, where electrons enter the water), and oxygen will appear at the anode (the positively charged electrode). Back in the days of the 3 9 V battery and coins we would wait until we saw a cloud of what we were told were pieces of silver forming in the water and stopping the process soon after that. In reality, the cloud was form by hydrogen and oxygen micro bubbles and meant that the process was in a runaway mode. Disconnecting the batteries at that point would, if you were lucky, get you perhaps a five PPM colloidal silver solution. It would not keep its strength for very long as the larger particles would quickly collide with and absorb the silver ions. A few of us promoted the use of current limiting to prevent the runaway condition. Some of us noted that the higher resistance we used the better results we obtained in both higher PPM and stability. Many of us, including yours truly, tried every conceivable method of stirring to allow the use of a higher current in order to speed up the process. All of my efforts in this direction failed. I could not get around the fact that for a given surface area of silver anode only a certain amount of current was allowed. There is a region surrounding the anode called the Nernst diffusion area. To put it simply, it is a region that will only allow a certain density of ion's to exist before they agglomerate into larger particles. So for those of you with your own setups for making colloidal silver, try reducing the current and allowing more time and let us know the results.

  • G. Joseph Fondren

    Found this article on Because of a minor heart problem I've seen several doctors from Colorado to Alabama in the past year and expressed to each of them my distrust of Big Pharma, and gave them my opinion that two many doctors see every health problem as a "drug deficiency." I know well of one doctors' office that has forty employees that get fed lunch by various drug reps almost every day. How do the drug reps figure this is cost effective for them? Wink, wink.

    I'm not completely new to colloidal silver though never having used it. Your info really impressed me. The expected "hard close" to buy something never came, and then you even went so far as to tell me in great detail how to make my own. Good job! I'll be encouraging my whole extended family to read it.

    There are some reasons your info really got my attention other than the obvious health benefits. I own a closed down silver mine with hundreds of tons of ore on top of the ground. I have a spring that has been professionally checked and rated "very good water." I have a government surplus 5 gallon still and have solar panels and a bank of 12v batteries that, as you know, can also be 24, 36, or 48 volt depending on how they are connected. Am I wrong to see this as a potential income or barter situation after the collapse? At this point it seems the biggest obstacle would be turning the ore into silver pure enough to be safe.

    I have about 30, one-quart glass, Jim Beam bottles with handles and plastic caps. Would these be suitable for storage? Since I have the wherewithal to make moonshine, would that be suitable for cleaning in lieu of vodka? Would I need to use potatoes as a base for the moonshine? Would 24 volts from two 12v batteries be OK for the electrolysis? Thanks for some fantastic info.

  • Dean Striker  - Colloidal Silver works for me

    I learned first of CS about 10 years ago. I had just pulled in on a relocation after a long tow. Had an awful swelling on the right side of my face. I figured I would be heading to an emergency room!

    New neighbor stopped by to intro and noticed my plight. He immediately went home and came back with CS and told me what it was and how to use it.

    Three days later it was totally gone!

    I'm now making my own CS, use it only when afflicted with something, and it works!

  • Laurier Belanger  - Colloidal Gold

    Very interesting report on Colloidal Silver. Been producing Colloidal Silver
    for years. Now I see how the rods may come from China and be contaminated…….like most products that come from China.

    I was wondering if anyone has information on Colloidal Gold and how to make it. Can I use the same copper wires and power source as used for the Colloidal Silver production?
