Using Colloidal Silver

Oral Use

One teaspoon of 15 ppm Colloidal Silver provides about 75 mcg of silver. This could be considered a “nutritional” amount if taken on a daily basis. Any amount above four teaspoons or 300 mcg a day should be considered a “therapeutic” amount. For therapeutic usage some therapists recommend taking double or triple the above amount for 30 to 45 days, then drop to the maintenance dose. When used as an antibiotic, adults and children (twelve and older), take one, two or three teaspoonfuls of Colloidal Silver orally three times a day. Younger children should take half this amount.

Even if your body is extremely ill or toxic, do not try to clear up everything at once. If pathogens are killed off too quickly, the body’s five eliminatory channels, i.e., the liver, kidneys, skin, lungs and bowel, may be temporarily overloaded, causing flu-like conditions, headache, extreme fatigue, dizziness, nausea or aching muscles (Herxheimer Effect – also referred to as the ‘Wellness Syndrome’ or ‘Healing Crisis’). If you experience these symptoms, ease off on the Colloidal Silver to the maintenance amount and increase your distilled water intake. Regular bowel movements help to relieve the discomforts of detoxification.

Taken orally, Colloidal Silver is absorbed in the mouth and stomach and goes into the bloodstream. Swishing the solution around the mouth, then holding it under the tongue before swallowing, ensures fast absorption. Colloidal Silver can also be put into a small atomizer pump bottle (2 or 4 oz size) and used as a spray.

As with any other supplement, it is best that pregnant or nursing women should contact their health practitioner before using Colloidal Silver.

Cleaning Agent

Colloidal Silver is tasteless, odorless and non-irritating to sensitive tissues such as the eyes, nose or lungs. Therefore it can be applied topically on cuts, sores, insect bites, stings, any skin problems (e.g., put a few drops on a band-aid and wear over warts), and gum or dental problems.

Silver colloids can also be added to douches and colonic enemas. Women will find that it will rapidly clear up vaginal/yeast infections and most cases of cystitis.

An aid to digestion, because it eliminates fermentation, one ounce can be added to a gallon of water. Shake well, wait six minutes, shake again, wait six minutes again, and drink.

Water is purified by adding one half teaspoon of CS per gallon. Shake well, wait six minutes, shake again, wait six minutes and drink.

CS is an ideal food preservative because it is also good for you. For example, put about 1/4 teaspoon in a quart of content when canning food.

People who are bedridden can especially benefit from Silver Colloid by rinsing all sheets, pillow cases, towels, blankets, etc., and adding a large cupful into your washer during the rinse cycle. Spray it directly on bedsores, skin rashes, psoriasis, etc.

Add to soaks for dentures and dental appliances.


Colloidal Silver has uses specifically for young children. Diaper rash (spray directly on the body and into the fresh diaper), eye infections (apply it with an eye dropper) and ear infections (spray the colloid in the ear, saturating a small piece of cotton for an earplug and then periodically re-spraying) can be treated quickly and without medication. Also, spray it on band-aid pads to shorten healing time.

Spray immediately on burns (sunburns too!) to prevent infections, lessen pain and promote faster healing with less scarring.


Allergic reactions to certain foods or other irritants can cause hives or welts to appear on the body of susceptible people. Instead of taking a steroid prescription of topical Cortisone or even Prednisone, spray Colloidal Silver on the affected area and the hives should disappear in about 15 minutes.

For air travel spray Colloidal Silver in the mouth and inhale the mist through the nose and lungs about every 30 minutes while in the air.

Oral spraying eliminates bad breath and reduces gum inflammation or abscess pain.

Put the Colloidal Silver in a larger pump bottle for use around the kitchen. Mistsponges, towels, counters, cutting boards, garbage cans and refrigerator shelves to eliminate odors, salmonella, E.Coli 0157:H7 (the tainted beef bug that you’ve read about in the newspapers) and other food-borne pathogens.
